It is within 5 mins walking distance from Roma Termini. Just cross the road from Termini and walk in the street for 2 mins then you will reach this hotel. Male receptionist (don’t know his name) was too good and helpful in providing information and addressing our basic need. Rooms and bathroom is very neat & good Wi-Fi. Breakfast was... More

We want to go back! This hotel is walking distance to the train station and wonderful restaurants and gelato - what more could you want! Stray a block or two away from the souvenir sellers to find El Negro Gallo and put on your walking shoes to make it to the Colloseum. We had no complaints and would stay there... More

The hotel is located in excellent location, near the train station and in walking distance from the main sites in Rome. Also the staff are very hospital and cooperative, in general you receve good value for money. The room is relativly small, but it is ok.

Great location. Hotel is a 5 minute walk from Termini station. You can walk to the Colosseum within 15 mins. In a lively area with plenty of restaurants around. You can get a meal and a drink for 10 Euros in most of the restaurants. Checkin was quick and easy and the staff on the desk were very friendly and... More

The hotel is well located, just five minutes from Roma Termini station and ten minutes from Coliseo. good restaurants around, especially at Via Urbana. The hotel are doing some works to improve the rooms. Probably the next year they will finish the reforms. Poor breakfast, but it is cheap, 5 euros.

The room itself is nice. Clean, modern, good aircon. Great location for train transfers at Termini. Perfectly fine for a night. My only problem is I shared a room with my adult step daughter and both the shower stall and toilet - which are in the room and not in a separate room - have see through doors. I would... More

This hotel is really dodgy. We booked for two nights here in Rome and paid in advance too! Our flight delayed by 19 hours. Got to the hotel and they gave our room away and they scammed us by keeping our money for the two nights.. Told us to find another place to stay as they were booked out. Staff... More

Everything is excellent, little improvement needed in wi fi connectivity on fifth floor and a tea/ coffee maker in room definitely make this best. Location is best all monuments and public transport nearby. Fantastic food outlets are around.

I travelled with my family and the five of us shared one room. They were very spacious and clean. Hotel is situated 2 minutes from Termini where you can also get the metro to anywhere in Rome. Good few restaurants and cafés nearby. Couldn't really fault the place!

The bathroom was kind of part of the room. The toilet had a blue glass door, obviously see through, then the bathtub was next to the bed, separated by a curtain that didn't go all the way around so there goes privacy. There was a telephone shower with nothing to hold it against the wall, showering was tough and cold... More

Dear Alicia, sometimes it's enough to read the other reviews to know that we also have that kind of room. Or see the pictures you can find in our website, on in every booking enigne online. Or, finally, ask for a different room once you are here, instead of sleep there, having a bad time and then write a review... 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.
