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

We had a very nice welcome and were given a voucher for a free drink each. The hotel has 2 lifts/elevators but they hold a maximum of 4 persons so very small and claustrophobic. Our room was 212 and we couldn't find it, having gone up we then had to go down13 steps and wind our way around the corridor.... More

This hotel has a musty scent throughout the hotel from the lobby to the elevator to the rooms. They try to mask the scent by putting oil diffusers in the rooms which only makes u nauseous with the strong scent of perfume. I read a lot of reviews on this hotel that the air conditioning wasn't that strong - but... More

Location was excellent, close to termini train station, restaurants etc. Staff were generally helpful. Room was below average, small and damp/musty smelling. Some wall sockets would not work. Generally in poor repair. Breakfast food was also pretty average.

Good standard of hotel, its not in a new building so it has its quirks - the plumbing can do with a little updating for example - that said it is a perfectly pleasant, extremely welcoming and well located hotel for both the business and tourist traveller alike. The room I has was quiet well appointed and clean. The age... More

Honestly it was one of the hotels I expected the most from but was left very disappointed. The A/C failed to cool the room at all, the bed was equipped with 1 sheet. No comforter or blanket. The shower was old and unclean looking, and hot water was simply not available no matter the time. Wife hated it, I hated... More

The hotel is located near to the tourist sites. The rooms are large relative to the city of Rome, clean and sympathetic staff. breakfasts were good. Near the Hotel in the Square there is a large supermarket, daily market and very good local restaurants.

We enjoyed our stay here of four days. The breakfasts were great and looked forward to every day. Lighting in our room was poor near the closet. Bed very comfortable. Room quiet. The staff very helpful. They recommended the ristorante Antica Boheme, close by and inexpensive. A hit with us.

We stayed in Rome for 3 nights. This hotel was run down. Old carpets, elevate had a nasty smell and air conditioner did not work well. I was going to eat breakfast outside until I saw the pigeons walk on the plates. Thankfully we were up and about all day.

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.
