We selected the New Year’s Eve package because of the location of the hotel. But location is not everything, as it has turned out. The guide warned us during transfer that this was a ’standard’ four-star hotel which she would rather call a three-star hotel. And indeed, she was right. When we entered the room, in addition to the strong... More

I think I can answer a question why this hotel has 4 stars. That is because of high special tax €6 per person per night. So 4 stars help them to earn more money for nothing and also to attract guests. I stayed there for a week in a single-room in the beginning of November. I think that it is... More

The worst service ever! People at the reception had an attitude. Rude! Not a 4 star at all!!! There are so many hotels in the area please do not choose this one! The wifi is only in the lobby and very poor quality. No shower curtain. I had very bad experience. Please do not choose this hotel!

I stayed at the Hotel Archimedes for two night at the beginning of September 2014. It certainly is NOT a 4 star hotel. Location: The Hotel is about 150 metres from Termini station. I would not recommend this area to stay in Rome. For a little bit more money, you can stay in the centre and it is money well... More

I dunno how hotels are rated in Italy but definitely not with a clear mind! This hotel is NOT a 4-star, by no chance. There's no shower curtain, no wi-fi in the rooms (4-star and no Internet? It's 2014!), super poor breakfast (a problem in the entire country), very old furniture, dirty walls and bed covers and the location though... More

The hotel looks like it does in the pictures - that's a nice change. The neighborhood is busy with outdoor dining areas. The feel of the road is fun. We dined at restaurant Mino around the corner and it was wonderful. The servers in Italy are so efficient and helpful. The large window in our room looked out to the... More

For those travelling on a 'normal' holiday be aware that particularly during July the hotel is used by lots of school groups. This isn't a big problem but expect children in the very small communal space hogging the wifi and noise in the bedrooms after 'lights out'! I was there with a school party of 40 and there were 3...

It is located in a very central area. Just a few minutes walk to terminal station. Though we had been warned about the dangers we might have encountered, the neighbourhood turned out to be quite safe. The room and the bathroom were not spacious and we felt as if we were back in 80s because of the decoration- the colours... More

Very handy for Termini, but definitely in need of redecorating and modernizing . We were in a fairly spacious corner room; bathroom OK but no fan or air circulation so there was lots of mildew in the shower area. Breakfast ok. Free Wifi only in part of the lobby, and not in the room.

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.
