We stayed in the hotel for 2 nights. I picked the hotel because it was close to center and metro. It was a good choice. Clean, quiet,nice rooms- small but comfy with tidy bathroom. Breakfast was included and there was a fair choice- eggs, sausages,bacon,toasts,croissants,pastries,and lots more. They even gave me a wine opener in the reception when we bought... More

Just few minutes away from Roma Termini station, nice staff and good place to start a walk around Rome. Rooms and breakfast-average. We came with two children, luggage and baby carriage anf only a half of us managed to enter a miniature lift.

Hotel has great location in terms of getting around Rome and surrounds. Room was clean and spacious, bathroom especially so. Service was average to poor, breakfast was below standard and the hotel seem to allow smoking in the rooms which invades all other rooms in the corridor. It is not a place where you wish to spend time and the... More

I've stayed here with another of my business trip. It's an OK hotel if your only need is to sleep and you are off to the city in the rest of the day.The breakfest is quite cheap, i mean in all of Rome coffee = espresso, but here coffee = filter coffee which i didn't find quite nice. A good... More

We were in Rome in November. Like many other guests on here, we were told upon arrival that we would have to stay at Hotel Luce, down the street, due to a sudden "water issue" with the hotel. Obviously, being young and internet savvy, I knew to expect this and protested vehemently. I got the hotel worker at the front... More

I had a problem with the room, and a friendly lady at the desk had no problem changing it for us. I just needed to wait until the next day, when some guests check out. I made sure she left notes for the room change, when new staff is in the next day. Next day, different guy at the desk... More

We had the same experience as another reviewer. Upon arrival we were told we would be staying down the street. We should have protested but figured it would be okay. The room at the other location was poor. The bed was awful shower only partly worked, no wifi and hairdryer wouldn't stay on. We complained the next morning and were... More

I booked the San Marco hotel back in August for 3 nights in September and paid in full in advance and had a confirmed reservation, but when I arrived at the San Marco on Monday lunchtime I was told I must move to another hotel as they were over-booked. I was very dissapointed with the other hotel I was moved... 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.
