The staff was very helpfull. We had no problem with payment. The breakfast was not included, but it wasnt expensive and was good. In my opinion, the value is a bit expensive, but i think its due to be in a good location. Our room was not so good, it was not very small, but its not beautiful. S

This hotel is fantastically located very close to Termini; the main bus and rail station for Rome. Yet close enough to not be disturbed by the noise or crowds of the station itself. The rooms are spacious and very clean and are cleaned daily by housekeeping. The hotel offer a very good breakfast with a wide selection of choices. The...

wifi is really bad, room is noisy. You pay city tax cash and not with credit card. Kind staff cheap room. You get the skin inside the bedroom, then a small room with shower and another very small one with toilette and bidet. I did not find this design so practical neither so nice. I paid 53 euros for a...

Stayed for two nights. Buffet breakfast okay. Good location to termini station. The restaurant next door is very good and extremely cheap!! We ate there both nights. Always a good sign when locals eat at a place. A small shop a couple of doors up for provisions. We caught a glr tour bus around the city to catch the sights....

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.
