The location is very good, the service was awesome with friendly receptionist, fast WiFi and comfortable bed. The breakfast was tasty with fruit juice, coffee, croissants and other things. I had a very nice weekend there !

Having read the reviews from other people on trip advisor I would agree. This is a great bargain hotel for a short trip to Rome. When we arrived at Termini station we walked past the cheap tat shops and lots of shabby hotels and didn't feel overjoyed but the street that it's on is lovely and is very close to... More

On Via Carlo Alberto, 50 mtrs from badilica of S. Maria Maggiore, a place where you find yourself at home, gentle staff, silent rooms, inner court and even art pieces at the lobby's walls. Owned by international expats, clean, all no smoking rooms, average cont'l Bfast, reasonable room price. Ar reception experienced collaborative staff.

Clean comfortable and close to termini. It is difficult to find, there is no signage.....you're looking for a large wooden door next to the bar and opposite the Montreal hotel. Press the button next to the name, they'll release the lock from reception...at the top of the stairs is reception. Staff helpful. Our belongings were safe while we were out... More

Nice hotel in a good location, staff friendly and willing to help. We asked to change rooms as the one we had was a bit noisy as on the Main Street, and was swapped to a room which opens onto the courtyard. The extractor fan in our bathroom didn't work so there was a bit of a smell in there... More

The staff are friendly and helpful. The location is fantastic, 5 mins walk from termini and only 15 mins walk to the colosseum and other attractions. Our room was clean and tidied everyday. It was an absolute bargain and I would recommend to anyone for a pleasant budget stay.

We ended up staying at this property as our original hotel had a sewerage leak. On arrival the receptionist was quick and efficient and offered us a room at the same price for our original hotel which we thought was extremely kind of them! The hotel is walking distance to every sight you want to see (apart from the vatican... 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.
