We stayed at the hotel for a week. The first room was very dirty, we had to be moved to another room. The toilet and sink had some weird stuff on it and bed had multiple hairs when the covers were pulled back. The room was super hot and the fridge never worked. The maintenance man had to come and...

Gorgeous hotel with friendly, helpful and accommodating staff. Room was modern, spacious, clean and comfortable with classy marble bathroom. Maid cleaned every day and changed all the linens and towels. We booked an executive double via Booking.com and got a really good deal on our 4 night stay with breakfast included. We had a huge TV with satellite channels (including... More

The hotel is unimposing from the outside, but a real gem from the inside. The rooms are modern and well equipped, but a bit on the small side. The size is fine for a couple-day getaway, but probably not for a week or more--I understand they have some larger rooms. Breakfast was great, lots of variety and good quality.

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.
