Had to stay a week for business in this small family hotel. In spite that it was my ever first experience of stay in the hotel of **-*** category I remained quite glad. The "hotel" are in fact several rooms with private bathrooms at one of the floors of the residential building, which, though, is rather a plus than a... More

We came into Rome by train and departed by train so with a 5 minute walk it was ideal. Do research the route and don't follow google walking directions or you will have a 10 minute walk. The room was small but quiet. Breakfast was simple but saved by the coffee. However the staff made our stay by their kindness.... More

The hotel is not easily found, especially at night, as there is only a small plaque beside a closed door, unlike other hotels which have bright neon lights and big signs. I passed the hotel more than once without finding it - only found it by asking at a nearby restaurant. Nevertheless, the Domus Praetoria is very conveniently located, being... More

We stayed only one night on our way from Tuscany to Poland. We got an early train and arrived at the Hotel at 10am and to our surprise they allowed us to book in and use the room immediately. Very helpful after being tried from early rise to get to the station. Lift while a little old was fine. Room... More

This affordable place a few minutes walk from Termini Station was chosen as we were flying into , then leaving by train a few days later. It did not disappoint. While the room was small, it was clean, quiet, and the beds were great- firm the easy we like them. Breakfast was simple but good with cappuccinos made top order... More

We chose this hotel because it was so close to the station. We couldn't have been closer. It was in a street leading from station. Nice triple room. We had a good sleep. Road outside had a market in the morning. Interesting. Staff were friendly and helpful.

This hotel merits 3 stars !!! It is a 2 star hotel within a 5 minute walk from Termini station. There are no signs outside the palace indicating this hotel and the better for it! The hotel probably did it on purpose to avoid all the last minute stragglers looking for a hotel near the train station. With all the... More

We stayed 2 nights at this hotel and were very pleased. Convenience to the termini station was wonderful. The accommodations were perfect for 3 people (1 double bed and a twin bed). The hotel was quiet (we had an interior room). The staff was very helpful. Very nice brothers who operate the hotel and others who worked there. Continental breakfast... More

I was glad i chose this hotel for my 1st visit to Rome. It was clean and provided frew breakfast too. however it will be quite difficult to identify the main door of the hotel because of the market found below. My boyfriend and I had initially walked right past the hotel to only realise that it was right 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.
