Everything in this hotel is average: the breakfast, the cleanliness, the room. Nothing is too bad, but nothing is too good either. The nearest metro station is 600-700m away, which is not that good either. On the other hand, this is a cheap hotel, so you can't be expecting much more. There's no WiFi in the room and you have...

Hotel Porta Maggiore is oldish but very clean hotel, We stayed here in January and the heating worked fine. The stuff was quite OK and breakfast was... I would say moderate continental breakfast. Undoubtedly it is standard and usual case when you're in Italy especially when you deal with budget hotels. So no complaints. The hotel is literary leaning on... More

The hotel is very nice situated. It's on the walk distance from Colosseo and othe antic places but you can also take Metro or other public transport. We decided to walk to all the important monuments, and it was great decision. The glory time of the hotel past +/- 15 years ago, but it's still clean place with very nice... More

It has definitely improved from the terrible reviews I've read prior to our visit but it is still bad. We were forced to stay here when we bought a discover Europe package for two. Everyone else who has stayed there warned us on how bad the place was. Here are some concerns I had: The air conditioning doesn't work properly.... More

This hotel is popular with tour groups and I can see why. It has decent size rooms (unlike some european hotel rooms where you have to step outside to change your mind). The beds are comfortable and the staff at the front desk are very helpful. Ask for a room that faces the courtyard instead of the street. Street rooms... More

After reading many reviews, I felt a bit of trepidation before checking into the Porta Maggiore. What I found was a pleasant and basic hotel that met my needs completely. The room was clean, tidy and small. The AC, bathroom and internet access all worked well. Other guests at the hotel were friendly and courteous with no noise issues whatsoever.... More

If you are expecting luxury then you will be disappointed! However if what you are after is a clean, tidy and friendly typical Italian 3 star hotel then this is the one for you! We were a bit concerned after reading previous reviews but were pleasantly surprised when we arrived. The room had everything you needed including a safe, hairdryer... More

Clean and good overall - recommended to those on a budget. Would stay again if I had too. Even though Breakfast is basic but it's enough to start the day with. Tram and buses are just Opposite Hotel so that's a plus. Wifi comes at a change but one can pay 5€ for the whole stay to have wifi in... More

Staying in Esquilino

Neighborhood Profile
Esquilino
Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only way to describe the Esquilino neighborhood. The Esquilino takes pride in being one of the oldest areas in Rome for its key location on one of the city’s famous seven hills. From an ancient neighborhood to its modern incarnation as a multicultural hub, Esquilino always has something going on—polyglot vendors debate street artists while kids play pick-up basketball games. Look around you: this area isn’t like the historic center. Liberty architecture, large piazzas, and long boulevards mix with archaic arches, secret side alleys, and beautiful churches like Santa Maria Maggiore.
