Nice room with VERY modern plumbing fixtures. Functional with good location. The breakfast buffet was a nice surprise: nice rolls, pastry--cappuccino. Nice selection of salami and cheeses. There were several large tour groups and the buffet was replenished.

We chose this as it is close to the train station which had Ciampino airport shuttle bus link to the airport, plus all attractions we wanted to see were in walking distance of the hotel.

The BW Hotel Universo was affordable, lovely and conveniently located. It was an easy stroll along a couple of friendly shop and restaurant-lined blocks to one of Rome's must-see's, the basilica, Santa Maria Maggiore.

Excellent property in a great location, the rooms are well furnished and of a good size, good buffet breakfast, with the only drawback being the hotel staff being true to Italian style of arrogance and rudeness, an exception to this was the young lady at breakfast reception and the guy that operated the bar, with the front desk reception staff...

Staying in Esquilino

Neighbourhood Profile
Esquilino
Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only way to describe the Esquilino neighbourhood. 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 neighbourhood 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 centre. Liberty architecture, large piazzas, and long boulevards mix with archaic arches, secret side alleys, and beautiful churches like Santa Maria Maggiore.
