Good location - right inbetween the main train station and a tube station which goes to both the colleseum and Vatican if you don't fancy walking. The hotel was clean, staff were friendly and breakfast was good. Only downside was the bed was far too hard for me. I found myself turning over constantly throughout the night as my hips... More

Our room was bigger than any room I have stayed in with my family in the USA for the same price. Breakfast was very good and the staff were very accommodating. Very clean and roomy. Centrally located too! Close to the Metro and within walking distance to the center of Rome.

We stayed 3 nights in this hotel as recommended by our travel agent. Hotel San Marco is centrally located (have to walk quite a bit to Rome Termini Station across the super quiet walk lanes, which we try to avoid during the dark). This hotel fits for its 3-star rating. Decent and budget but clean. There is a lift in... More

Hotel San Marco was a great location for our 3 day stay in Rome- super easy to access the metro at Termini and get to all the tourist sites. It's quiet and there are a good number of excellent restaurants in the neighborhood (Try Pizza al Forno and Mama Angela's Tratoria). The room was sparsely furnished and not remodeled, but... More

The hotel San Marco is centrally based, clean with friendly staff. However the breakfast was poor and coffee poorer! The sound proofing was very good for being so close to the centre. It fits it's three star rating.

We stayed at San Marco Hotel for three nights. The surrounding is great and quiet. People who knows The city of Rome knows it can get loud, but not at San Marco Hotel. It's situated near by the metro but far enough from noise and crazyness of the city. We liked our stay at this hotel, thank you to the... More

The hotel is located near Termini that is the train station. It's like 15 mins drive from main attractions such as Fontana de Trevi or 30 mins work if you like to walk. When we arrived during the morning our room was not available so we left our luggage in the luggage room. The elevator is pretty small but fortunately... More

I will give it 2 stars because it did provide shelter. Otherwise, not the best experience. The staff was not nice, or helpful. The beds were awful! Horrible mattress and dirty bedspreads. The bathroom was large, but possibly the smallest showerI have EVER seen. It is located a good ways away from the attractions, and hustle a bustle. On the... More

We got to the Hotel San Marco, where we had made reservations 6mos in advance, and confirmed, only to be told they were over booked and had no rooms for us!! Then told us of another hotel we could easily walk to (with all our bags)! Finally agreed to pay a taxi. They told us the hotel they were sending... 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.
