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.
I will say this, the gentleman who checked us in at 6-7pm was a wonderful young man. However, after dinner and drinks we returned to the hotel at approx 03:00 to find the "on duty" front desk clerk asleep at the desk. Not just a light nap mind you, out cold. Friends and I proceeded to the lounge area (no more than 3 meters from the desk) and hear a very spirited but considerately quiet conversation. It took more than a few minutes for the front desk clerk to arise from his slumber but what's more is he proceeded to yell at us demanding we leave. We all parted ways back to our respective rooms. I soon after went back to the front desk to ask a question, again to find the front desk unguarded. The same front desk where guests leave their rooms keys, for a second time in an hour was left unsecured.
If you stay here take care to personally secure any valuables and keep in mind there isn't even a room safe
NO HOT WATER to even take a shower... when I asked for hot water they told me that it is what it is. We had to shower with cold water. Horrible expereince and not what u want your vacation to feel like. really small rooms that look verrryy old. I wouldn’t recommend staying there
The hotel is nothing special, exept the location, it is close to the Termini station and the other historical places. I spent three nights in the hotel, travelling on business. The room was small, the good thing was i did not share the room, otherwise it would be very narrow for two persons. It was not very clean as well. The options for breakfast were very limited. I think the price per night is a bit higher that what the hotel offers.
I think the hotel is very basic - the hotel very is old ,Compared to other hotels in the area. The breakfast was bad and the rooms was little and basic - just for sleeping with no others things to have,the showers was little and old too. The best thing in the hotel is the location and the people of the hotel - they were nice and pleasent .If you looking for basic hotel just for 2-3 nights , maybe will fit your expectations.
We spent our last night before departing Rome at Hotel Paris and were quite disappointed in our choice for “arrivederci”. The location is great and within walking distance to a lot of sites. 6 min to the main “Termini” Metro station and 2 min to the “Repubblica “ Metro stop. Trevi fountain is just a 18 min walk away. ........but was not worth the cost of $116 plus 8 E city tax per night. Very dated, had a strong perfume smell upon entering the hotel, and in halls. The room had a moldy smell and was noted to have mold? In the shower door tracks. When I went to take a shower the doors closed so poorly one of them actually came off the track and I could not get it back on. The beds were comfy enough. It could be a very charming hotel with some money put into it to refurbish the beds, carpets and shower units. We were not able to experience the included breakfast because we had a 10am flight out and had to leave at 7am.... breakfast started at 7/7:30. There are plenty of taxis 1/2 block away on “Via Nazionale” so no need to reserve a taxi for the ride to the Fiumicino airport..... cost for the taxi for 4 people plus luggage was 48 Euros ( standard fare) but because we “reserved” it the night before through the front desk we were charged a further 3 E. Not too significant, but if you are looking to save money it is. All in all, not a good experience.
