My friends and I just returned from our 1 week stay in Rome and have lots of good things to say about hotel Donotello. It truly felt like a home away from home and saying goodbye to the owner when we left felt like saying goodbye to a dear family member. The owner is very helpful. As far as the... More

Rome is everything and more friendly people and great scenery. The Hotel Donatello made our holiday all the more perfect. Great location, friendly helpful staff, very clean room and lovely terrace at the back to enjoy your morning coffee. Loved every minute ..

This is a reasonable but not luxury hotel. The staff is very friendly and always helpful. My stay was fine and comfortable. The building is old and the rooms are small. Wifi very good in public areas. Breakfast was coffee and croissant/rolls. It was free and certainly a good start to the day but if you are looking for a... More

Design of the rooms - it is different from a typical look 2. Behavior of staff 3. Bus and Tram stops are very close. You can purchase ticket in close-by shops Negatives: 1. Breakfast -... More

We booked to go as a couple with our youngest teenage son for three nights at the end of July. On arrival we took the express train from the airport to Termini and we walked from Termini station to the hotel which took us about twenty minutes and was very straightforward. The area round the hotel does look a bit... More

One of the main benefits is its close proximity to the central train station. A tip upon arrival, when you exit the large station you will be greeted with many, many bus stations and knowing where to go takes a bit of time to figure out. Don't look at the bus stops that are in the station area, instead find... More

We stayed here recently and unfortunately it did not meet our expectations. The staff were excellent however we thought we were getting a larger room than we got. We had two single beds and could not even open our suitcase so make sure you ask what room you are getting. The air con went off in the mornings for the... More

Been in this place for 3 nights in vacation. Location is good, only 8 minutes walk to the metro station that takes you in pretty much all the important locations. Ignore the grafitis, place is safe, street is noisy. Clean hotel and friendly staff, but with some downers. Fridge was barely working, wifi was not free (5 euros for the... 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.
