There is like 2 steps of stairs to get to both the small lift/elevator and the "1st" floor. Our room is typical European size,... More

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

Stayed 3 nights by end of October before going on a cruise. From airport to hotel by taxi is Euro 48 under the standard price at the taxi stand (don't bother about those people inside the airport passengers arrival area as they asked between 90 to 65 euro). Great location as it is so close (5 minutes walk) to the... More

We stayed 3 nights in this hotel and i must say the location is really superb especially if you're traveling to Rome by train. There is also a Leonardo Express train(14 Euro for single trip) from Termini Station that takes you to the airport in 30 mins.(vice versa) The hotel itself is clean and the room we stayed in is...

What a great little hotel to start off our walking tour of Italy. The big plus for this hotel is its proximity to the Termini Station, quick and easy access to airport and the rest of Italy. The hotel is in an older block, with a great courtyard. It is in what appeared to be a quieter part of the... More

The hotel has very good location, 3 blocks from the Termini station. The rooms are small but with all that we needed for a 5 days long stay. Clean bathroom and breakfast included. Very kind personnel.

I don't know why people liked this hotel.it doesn't have any hotels facilities,it's just a room and a bed “Over charges!!” Smelly room due to plumbing odours! Very poor breakfast. Cornflakes, bread roll and coffee. Security excellant but probably due to the area. Street market outside at weekdays meaning a nois.very tiny shower, no tea or coffee facilities even in... More

Staying in Esquilino

Neighborhood Profile
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.
