A perfect place to hang out in the evening and at night. You can find a good choice of restaurants, bars, clubs and ice-cream shops. Lively atmosphere.

Ostiense is a very dynamic neighbourhood. I was born and raised here and watched the whole area changing constantly. It ends where Roma Sud (Southern Rome) begins and has a privileged position: 2 underground stations away from the Colosseum, 20 mins walk to Circo Massimo...More

Hello! We felt completely safe when visiting Ostiense area but it was day time. The hotel you chose seems a nice one and at just 300m from Piramide station. Personally I found the area to be a very interesting one but bare... More
