Rome's train system is limited and I frequently book close to Termini station to provide more options. I also collect BW rewards so tend to book there first where possible. Hotel Universo covered both options so booked with confidence. Took the train to Termini from Fiumicino and a short walk later, checked in. Quick and easy we were in our...

We stayed here on a 3 day visit to Rome. It is close to the main train station and we walked to the colosseum from here although it takes about 30 - 40 mins. The hotel itself is a very good base for sight seeing. You can get tour buses and the metro from the Termini just a 5 min...

The hotel is very close to Termini station. A calm street but wit several nice restaurants in the area. However, also the hotel restaurant is very good with nice food and drinks at reasonable prices. The rooms are spacious and well equipt. The only minus is the wooden floor in the shower. Staff is friendly. Good hotel for meetings.

A very good hotel with friendly staff. The hotel is close to transport links. To inprove, the hotel should is to move the bar so that it is available next to the reception. The current location is hidden and does not invite to visit.

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.
