Recently enjoyed the centrally located hotel. Great breakfast & location. Clean. Small shower. Not used to firm bed (woke up w/ sore neck/back); not to be unexpected. Would stay again/longer in a heartbeat!

From when I arrived the staff were so helpful. they didn't have a single room for me so they gave me a double for my first night. This spoiled me for the other two nights, as the single room was smaller than I think a single room should be. Don't get me wrong, the rooms are all modern, and well... More

I would concur with the good previous reviews. We stayed 4 nights. Small room but what I expect in Europe, good air conditioning and modern bathroom. Great breakfast included in the very reasonable price. For those who use the metro as we did, I would recommend the Republica station instead of the Termini. It is closer and much less busy....

Eager and Friendly with an amazing memory for individual's preferences, Jo makes breakfast a very special treat! The breakfast has enough variety for most folks to find satisfaction. The breakfast rooms that adjoin provide comfortable seating. The rooms are SPOTLESSLY CLEAN! (for the most part...our room did have some unresolved crime scene blood-like smears on the wall) Coffee in the... More

The photographs of this hotel are totally air brushed. Thankfully we were there for only one night. We needed a place close to Termini Station and it is a good location for that purpose. Although the area as a whole looks a bit rundown. The elevator was broken so we had to climb at least four flights of stairs with... More

Based on reviews we read here, We weren't expecting much from Hotel Sonya. However we were dekighted with it! The location is great, 10 minutes from termini, 5 minutes to Republica metro station and walking distance to trevi and lots of other attractions. Our rooms were spotless and much larger than expected (some comments here saying showers as small, we... More

HotelSonya, Owner at Hotel Sonya, responded to this review

Dear Sir Thank you for your review. As you said, you make the booking online, the only point is that you leave a fake credit card to guarantee the room. You receipt more than one email from Expedia and from us, and you dont take care of them. We help you (also Expedia) to found another hotel, and i remember... More

Hotel Sonya is very convenient to the railway station - about 5 minutes away and easy to get to with wheeled suitcases. The staff was very friendly and accommodating especially the breakfast crew, and the breakfast was fantastic with a large range of foods even a large pie and oven made omelette. My only complaint is that the rooms are... More

I have stayed here before and found it to be a wonderful place. From the antique elevator to the delicious breakfast buffet with the friendly and helpful staff it was another great stay. I highly recommend this hotel.

Hotel Sonya is very convenient to Termini - about 5 minutes away and manageable with wheeled suitcases. We found the staff to be very friendly and accommodating. Hotel Sonya is an older 3 star hotel which may seem more like a 2 star to North Americans. The rooms are smallish. We had a standard double room in the area near... 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.
