I recently stayed here with a group of college students and would never return. Although our students were well behaved, there were students from other places that seemed to stay up all night running up and down corridors, banging on doors, shouting and generally keeping everyone awake. It did not seem to bother the hotel staff as all school trip... More

Upon first walking in to this hotel you are struck with an eerie feeling. We should've turned back immediately. There is no computer at the front desk. Once you are given your key you walk down a dark, dirty hallway that reeks of urine. The whole hotel smells like a dirty bathroom. You walk in to a bare room with... More

Beds were good, room clean and cleaned daily, most staff friendly speaking some English. Many trams passing in the 2 squares in front of hotel. Breakfast was not good, most sweetened bread and some hard white bread with ham and cheese. No fruits or juices

We got to this nightmare hotel thanks to our school trip. As you get there, you immediately feel the gloomy atmosphere that remarks the place, but also the staff's shameful impoliteness. A urine smell identifies the main stairwell. The dark curvy corridors and their brown-tiled dirty floor make sure you understand - if that hasn't happened yet - that you've... More

Inedible meals, tasteless décor, few English speaking staff, rudeness- all traits of the Hotel Porta Maggiore. Rooms- Our room,not bathroom, was clean, at least, but our door handle was partially hanging off which made opening/closing traumatic- thank god there was not a fire! There was not a lock on the bathroom door which would have been appreciated. There was a... More

Friendly, well located, trams and bus stops outside. Single room small, clean, noisy with window open, hot with it closed, loud fracas street awoke me at 3 am. Found the reception people v helpful and friendly. Came for Wales v Italy rugby. Good singing after. Barman character. Breakfast worst part of stay. Good value. Would certainly stay here again.

The hotel is nice, close to the "TERMINI", the mail railway station and some good tourism spots. The tram and bus stops are right next to the hotel. The tram number 3 takes you to various spots which otherwise, you would have had to take a taxi too.

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.
