I stayed at the Hotel San Marco for 4 nights as a part of a school tour to Rome. We arrived from the airport and we're lucky enough to check into our rooms straight away (we were all in need of a shower and a good rest). The staff were incredibly friendly and the rooms were neat and clean. All... More

It's a very average hotel; dated and needing some care and attention. The lift is tiny and very slow. The rooms very plain and without flourish, the tiny TV a postage stamp high on the wall. However, the towels were brand new, sparkling bright and fluffy. The aircon a necessity in the Roman heat, somewhat difficult to switch on, but... More

Arrived here but because of" water problems' we were sent to another hotel around the corner. Unfortunately the "new" hotel had some slight glitches. Thus my rating for the 'San Marco" is somewhat low. Pl3ase realise we did not stay here so the review is not about our stay but about being sent to an inferior hotel.

Hotel staff is very informative, friendly, and courteous. I checked in very early and the room was not ready, reception allowed me to store my luggage meanwhile and help myself to the breakfast of that day as it was still open. They provided a map, outlined directions for places I asked to go, and even made a reservation for me... More

A 5 to 10 minute walk from train station but once there, it is a welcome site. Clean, roomy spaces with a fridge and helpful staff. There is a closer subway just north of Termini for those who want a quicker way there. Breakfast was better fare than expected.

Near to Rome Termini railway station and a metro station named Castro Pretoria. Nice ambience. Rooms are spacious, fresh and clean. Good breakfast. There are many nice eateries around. Staff speaks English, was friendly and guided us in making optimum use of our 1 day stay in the city by suggesting which places to see and which to avoid. Free... More

It was very royal experience to be here except small toilet rooms. Breakfast was as usual. Also this is nearer to Rome Termini i.e. Rome main railway station and metro station named Castro Pretoria. Hotel maintained the ambience and rooms are airy.

Had a good 4 night stay. Good rooms and breakfast. Ideally located to travel by metro in Rome and close to main termini. Andrea at the desk was always very helpful. Very good bathroom. Have very few complaints. Would like to give an extra star for Andrea being helpful

This hotel is rated a 3 star. It's close to the Termini station and there are many nice eateries around. Rooms are spacious and clean. Breakfast was included in our room rate which is just basic cereals, eggs, bacon, breads and cold/hot drinks. Staff were helpful in booking us in for the tour of the colosseum, as well as giving...

We arrived straight from a Cruise and although the room had been booked 6 months previously we were told one was unavailable so for the first night we were put in a small room in an apartment block, a street way. However we were upgraded to a better room as a way of apology the next night. The upgraded room... 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.
