The hotel is 5 minutes walk from the train station, 30 minute train connection from the airport. Major tourist attractions are about 15-20 minute walk so very accessible. Plenty of restaurants and cafes around the corner. Hotel is in a quiet location so not noisy at night, nor overun with the tourist throng. Hotel breakfast on the roof top terrace... More

This boutique hotel is very centrally located with easy access to restaurants and must-see sights. The room was very comfortable, with good beds and pillows. The only concern with the room was that the safe was not working. We enjoyed a lovely buffet breakfast on the rooftop patio with different selections every day. The staff went above and beyond for...

The hotel is a little rundown but because of the wonderful staff I would recommend it.Breakfast was very interesting with different foods that we wouldn't expect to be served at breakfast.Cold meats,fried rice,cold cooked vegetables,onions etc.The only fruit served was cut up melons,but muesli and yoghurt were available,bread but no toast.

Four of us spent the night here before our cruise out of Rome. We loved both the Hotel and it's great location. Our room was very comfortable and quiet. WiFi was very good. Front desk staff were exceptional. One of our party left his camera case in the lobby and one of the employees followed us down the street to... More

It was once possibly a 4 star, but sadly no more Dark red halls, dark green rooms with peeling wall paper,, and worn out carpets. Shower was very poor, water pressure and temperature fluctuations. Rusty shower stall.

The building is old and sad looking. The rooms are small and dark. My room had an ugly dark red color. I saw a cockroach in the room. The breakfast was very plain. The personell was reasonably friendly. The sinkdrain was not working well, the plumbing was rusty.

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.
