This hotel is in a great location. Near the Termini train station, 15-20min walk to the Colesseum and close to a 'hop-on-hop-off' bus stop. We had a spacious family room and shower room which was very clean. The rooms, however, need to be refurbished. Not a 4star hotel.

Excellent location, great staff/ very helpful. Areas of the hotel look like they need a bit of a refurbishment, room was a bit dark and out dated and room service did not replace used coffee cups. Bathroom had no shower curtain so ended up wet every time the shower was used. On several occasions there was no running hot water... More

Typical old pension, although the bed was comfortable, , a good size room and good if noisy AC , the rest of the facilities left much to be desired. The breakfast was very basic, and only once was the fruit replenished - the rest of the week , we were limited to green oranges! Tea and coffee was supposed to... More

We stayed two nights at Hotel Rex which is conveniently located near the Roma Termini station. We took a standard double room , and although it was small, it was not lacking anything. My only real complaint would be the shower which never really had a lot of pressure or was ever hot enough . The hotel itself was pleasant... More

We were two families with small kids and booked 4 rooms. Though the booking was done well in advance, we were allocated rooms in two different floors and each rooms were far from each other. Absolutely unhelpful staff. Though the property was supposed to have air conditioning in the room, it only made loud noise with no cold air. When... More

This hotel is a definite option for anyone coming to Rome. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and the reception and ground floor area was very clean and nice. The room was quite large and the hotel had made an adjoining into a full room for our family so we weren't all crammed into the one room, this gave... 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.
