Truly a gem within walking distance to all the historical sites of Rome. Just recently stayed for 2 nights post cruise the staff and service were 5*. Beautiful old building restored and the rooms were clean and larger than I was expecting. It came with a Breakfast included in your rate. I would definitely stay with them again!!

A group of us stayed in this nice hotel on our last night in Italy. The rooms, like most European hotels, were small but that was expected. The staff were very accommodating and helpful. The breakfast was included in the price and had a pretty full menu. The hotel is close to and in walking distance to a lot of... More

My wife and I, together with another couple, stayed in Hotel Sonya from 7 to 10 May 2011. All the staff we dealt with, both before and during our stay, were extremely helpful, and went out of their way to make us comfortable. The rooms had been recently renovated and were very comfortable. Double glazed windows, shutters and heavy drapes... More

Our Italy trip couldn't have started any better than our first hotel stay at Sonya. The location was exceptional - close to Roma Termini, in a clean, safe neighborhood and excellent room amenities - free wifi, modern italian furnishings and room facilities, Don't expect 5star accommodations, but for the cost, it was more than worth it and rivals other 3...

My husband and I booked a night at Hotel Sonya the night before flying back to the US because it was close to Termini. My first reaction to the hotel was that it was dingy and out-dated. The staff was appropriate, but not overly helpful. We asked for a cheese shop close by to stock up on Italian cheeses before... More

I recently was in Rome and stayed at the Hotel Sonya....quaint small rooms but very clean and staff was nice and very helpful. Good location to all the main sites about 20 minutes from Trevi Fountain. A little longer to Spanish Steps but with good walking shoes it gave you a feel for Rome. Loved the old time elevator and...

Booked the hotel for one night pre-cruise based on Rick Steves recommendation. When we arrived a little after 10:00 am our room was ready and we were able to check in and drop our bags in our room before heading out to see the sites (which the Front Desk staff helped us with on a map they have).

We found this place both in Rick Steve's Rome 2011 book and also a friend had stayed there earlier in the year and recommended it. The Hotel Sonya is easy to find and very close to the Termini station. When we checked in, we were told we were at the new hotel. I was a little worried at first. Someone... More

The rooms were clean, did not have nice views, but it is located in the theater area and safe. Their WiFi system is kind of weird, in that you have to get a new user name and password every 6 hours and even then, it is so so as far a connection. The breakfast is quite nice with a good... 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.
