We weren't meant to be staying here, but a fault at our proposed hotel meant we were relocated to the hotel philia. We were optimistic that being closer to the termini would mean a good hotel. Do not be fooled. On arrival we found the building was shared by a few hotels. We were given our room key and some... More

Hotel Philia was not too bad from my experience. Hotel was old, as expected but the rooms were always clean, and the housekeeping was arriving around 10 am. The hotel was very close to Termini and also not too far off walk to major attractions.

Stayed at this hotel in February for a school trip and we all had a great time! Hotel location is quiet, very centrally located and near train station ( very important thing when you stay the most part of the day out). The rooms are standard and the breakfast had a lot to choose from, including continental food. Helpful and... More

We stayed at the Hotel Philia for 2 nights. Nice rooms, comfy beds and lovely staff. There are a lots of nice places to eat around and it is only 5 minutes from the central station. Reception were helpful when organising a taxi back to the airport! I would greatly recommend the hotel!!!

Me and my friends went to Rome for Spring Break, and we had already seen pictures of the hotel online. Don't be fulled by them, the pictures are deceiving of this so called "hotel". We weren't badly received but as soon as me and my friends got to the room we got really bad first impressions, the room was too... More

Hello, I regret in reading this review. As every three stars hotel in Rome we use to change towels and linens every 2 days. Obviously you have forgotten to write that you used our duvets to sit in the commons area and we cannot use them anymore, because we could not understand what you did on it, we can just... More

Worst experience of my life! Me and my class and 3 teachers stayed there for 4 nights and since the first night everything went terribly wrong. The hotel is located in a building shared with more 3 hotels. When we got there we wanted to pay for the WiFi since it's not for free and they refused to do it... More

Situation - Hotel Philia is just a few minutes from both the main railway station/Metro (Termini) and Metro (Castro Pretorio). If you enjoy walking, then all major sites of interest are within fairly easy reach. Building itself - the building has other hotels within but the security is pretty good with CCTV in various places and access to each floor... More

Wow, OK where do I start. Confusing, unhelpful, miserable, dirty, very disappointing.

Good location near the train and bus station. Friendly staff. Pretty basic but ideal for a city break where you are only there for sleeping and a shower. Good size room and confortable bed. Only bad point was the poor quality breakfast which led us to going out for alternatives nearby.i

My hubby and I stayed at this hotel for 5d4n. We went in late April 2015, therefore, the weather was pretty cool. Room - Air condition was not switched on but all we had to do is open up the windows and the room is cooling again, due to the wintry-like weather we had. TV always play Italian channels but...

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.
