After a long day of travel I reached the front desk of the Hotel and placed my bags directly infant of me. While checking in with the clerk, the Manager, Emmanuel approached me from my left side seemingly welcoming me to the Hotel. Another man was on my right who appeared to be waiting for someone. Because I had reached...

Mr. Bunting, it is an unpleasant surprise to read your unfair review. By my side, I reserve the right to reply with frankness here on TripAdvisor and there will be for sure the occasion to proceed by legal means as well. You didn’t mention that you arrived with a taxi and, being almost drunk, you fell down the entrance of...

This hotel is in an excellent location being only a couple of minutes walk from the Metro. Many of the sites are in walking distance. The hotel is slightly tired but the bedrooms are of a good size and clean. The shower was rather old but worked ok. The breakfast was ok. Cereals, fruit and ham and toast and croissants....

Having booked the Hotel Rex, I was a bit anxious when I read some of the reviews on TripAdvisor. However, our experience was a very positive one. The location is great - near the Termini and 10-20 min walk away from most of the key attractions. We were given a family room facing out the side of the hotel. It...

Very well located however this is not a 4 star hotel. No hot water in the bathroom. Doors to the corridor are thin so you can hear a lot during the night. Could not use the safe. Overrated hotel and very pricey for what you get. Wouldn't recommend

Stayed here for 5 nights. Hotel staff was very friendly and polite. Upon arriving they provided a map of the city with key sights to see. The room was a bit dated but it was clean. The location was great. About a 5 min walk to Termini station and about 15 mins from the Colosseum and other attractions. Tons of...

I am not a picky person with hotels. The hotel room was clean but very old, especially the bathroom. The hot water would not work unless i turned both shower things on and even then it would just get a little warmer not much. One of the staff members was very friendly but when he wasn't there the other staff...

This hotel is really lovely, we booked it based on reviews and because of location near the Termini Station. I would advise getting a map first though before you arrive in Rome cause it took us ages to find it by walking but if we had a map we would have found it no bother. The staff were lovely, the...

Stayed at Hotel Rex in October 2016. Nice hotel, very close to Termini Station and 15-20 minutes walk from main attractions of Rome. Excellent and helpful staff. Nice breakfast but rooms need improvement.

I'm so glad we stayed here. It's a wonderful location - only a few mins from Republicca Metro stn, main Rome train terminus. It's only a 10-15 min walk to Colosseum and Trevi Fountain. The staff were all very friendly. Most spoke great English. Breakfast was a very good quality buffet style with a wide choice. Nice big rooms, traditional...

My wife and I were traveling from Florence to Amalfi and decided to pit stop in Rome for one night. I booked the hotel because I got a deal online and it was near the train station. I would not stay here if I had to pay full price. The hotel is in much need of a renovation - the...

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.
