I really liked this hotel, very friendly staff and generally very clean. Didn't change the towels during our whole stay, but otherwise the room was cleaned reasonably well and bed made. Had air con in the room but the bathroom was rather small. Shower was a a bit weak. Breakfast was included and taken at a cafe further down the... More

The hotel is a quick 10 minute walk from the train station. The room was a good size, the bathroom was a little small and the air conditioning was really good. The beds were awful, so hard it was impossible to get much sleep.

Very much a "budget-hotel" in a backstreet, so it wasn´t so nice to be heading home much to late, but besides that very close by to the central station and good restaurant and a good supermarket (condeti). The room was ok, but in the bathroom we found some muld :-( and the staff wasn´t so good at english, but they... More

We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights, prior to starting an Intrepid Trip. We joined the Intrepid group at this Hotel. It is within walking distance of Termini. Te room size was adequate and it was clean. However the shower did not have hot water - the only way we could have a shower was freezing cold. It was... More

I stayed 4 night at the hotel. The location is perfect, just some minutes from Termini station (I came from the airport). The room was really comfortable and very good furnished, with WORKING air-conditioning. The room was very loud because of the street but if you close the windows you can't hear anything from outside. Staff is helpful and they... More

Arrived in Rome after a hell 24 flight. So wasn't in the right frame of mind when we walked into the hotel. The antiquated lift at first scared me but became my best friend! The hotel staff were a family it seemed and seemed a bit bemused by two tired kiwis wanting a room. We were a bit early so... More

The only problem that can occur is the noise from the street below - but with wrking AC it is OK. Overall the hotel is perfect when you are looking... More

I stayed here for 4 nights on my own and couldn't have been happier with my stay. The rooms were exactly what I expected for the price I was paying, comparable to other hotels I've stayed at in Europe. My dealings with the desk staff, both day and night was very pleasant and courteous. They both spoke English and were... 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.
