Hotel Sonya was a quaint boutique hotel with spacious room and clean bathroom very conveniently located right in the Treveste area of Rome with a very convenient 5 minute walk to the Roma Termine. The Colosseum and Forum was a 20 minute walk. The entire area around Hotel Sonya is filled with all the most amazing restaurants and cafes you...

Hotel Sonya is walking distance from Termini Train Station, and has easy access to cabs as well as other transportation. The staff is very helpful and frank when it comes to questions about travel times in the City of Rome. They go the extra mile to make sure your stay is comfortable. Breakfast is a pleasant spread of what one...

We stayed our first four nights in Italy at this hotel. The rooms were small but probably normal for the area. Older place, with an more updated bathroom. The water temperature of the shower was a big problem - it would go burning hot then quickly cold multiple times during the shower. This was a problem throughout the stay, and...

Hotel near Termini. Colosseum is only a short walk. Even walking to the Vatican was not too far. Staff was friendly, also at the reception, the receptionist didn't say much but he walked the stairs to the 4th floor to catch te elevator for us. Breakfast was OK. We stayed 3 nights. We could store our lugage when we arrived...

A service of courtesy and caring at a high level. From the moment we arrived at the reception, we gave a quick and heartfelt service. Particular mention should be made of the service of the JO who could provide assistance beyond what the job requires. The rooms are of a high standard and the location of the hotel is excellent....

Other reviewers had a very different experience with Hotel Sonya than I did. Yes, the location is near many other small hotels, restaurants, and the train station. However, my room was shabby and uncomfortable. The bathroom sink had no hot water. The free wi-fi frequently dropped off after a few minutes use. Sometimes I had to try 6 to 10...

Great value. Warm and quiet room. A good breakfast with great service (Thank you Jo). Close to Termini transport (Buses and trains), Short walk to Colosseum, Roman Forum. Supermarket across the road. Numerous eating places in the streets at the back of the hotel. Enjoyed the five day stay.

Staying in Esquilino

Neighborhood Profile
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.
