I had heard this was an excellent place to stay in years past, but was disappointed. The hotel boasts an excellent location next to the Termini train station. We had a room in "annex" across the street from main hotel- JFK house and it took 3 keys to access. The WiFi was very spotty and barely worked at all for...

First of all I must comment that if you want a good location for your stay in Rome, this hotel is it. You're right next to Termini station which is the main station in Rome and is a half hour direct train journey from the airport. The Metro is also located in this station, and is bang in the middle...

The Kennedy is not as luxurious as the brochure indicates. However, it is clean and I felt safe. My experience was that the staff is not as friendly as you might be used to in other countries. It was Holy Week when I was there, so that might have contributed to the curtness of the staff. Nevertheless, it was in...

Location is not bad as the Roma Termini located in 5 min by walk (but still a bit dirty and not safe area). The hotel has 3 stars officially but I doubt... For breakfast you will have nothing hot, even no eggs.... Bread, butter, yougurt, some fruits. Room was dark and very cold even air conditioner could not heat it....

My main concern is the really REALLY hard beds, like my back still hurts... there's also thin walls and the fact that you must leave your key every time you leave... other than that it's clean and decently located, you get what you paid for

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.
