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.

I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights on business. I got the train from the airport and the hotel is a 5 minute walk from the central train station. Check-in staff were lovely and gave a great first impression. My room was lovely but might have been slightly cramped if 2 people

I am not sure how the taxi drivers worked out where the hotel is, but the hotel is in the right place for visiting the Vatican and Colosseum and walking to the Spanish Steps. Hotel staff were very helpful in providing directions and booking taxis. Less than three minutes wait

Brilliant location. Get the Leonardo Express train from the airport, 14€ each way per person, arrive at termini station in 30 mins and then a 10 min walk to the hotel, very easy to find. Check in was quick and easy. Our room was on the 7th floor. It was cleaned every day. Fresh

We had a brilliant stay in this hotel. The staff were all lovely particularly Anna on reception for whom nothing was too much trouble. It has a lot of nice restaurants near by and is positioned well for access to all the sites but be warned Rome streets are not in a grid

Only discovered aircon is turned off by management upon checking in to the room. Staff said heater is on during winter and no aircon for all rooms, was asked to turn off heater and open window if hot. It was 13 to 17 degrees mid-day = winter? I was perspiring and suffocating in

Dear LazziBeezz, We have carefully read your review and we are sorry for the impression given. We feel very sorry for the communication problem you experienced with one of our front desk agents. Unfortunately she did not give you the proper attention because she was committed in solving an urgent issue. We really apologize for that on behalf of all our Front Desk Staff. Our hotel has a centralized air-conditioning system whose temperature can be regulated in each room independently, thanks to a thermostat. This time of year our guests usually turn off the heater so that their rooms reach a suitable temperature. We know that this solution is not enough for some guests with different habits and for that, we provide air-conditioned rooms in winter, too. Unfortunately, there was no availability at your arrival. The following morning we readily offered to you an upgrade in order to fully satisfy your expectations. During the switch room procedures, a human or technical inaccuracy generated a mistake in the departure date that was brought forward by one day. This determined the automatic lock of the door. We are sorry for this inconvenience that we restored as soon as we knew it on your return, after viewing your passport in accordance with the security procedures. As far as concerns the connections to the airport, we usually suggest to our guests the Leonardo Express service because it is very on time and it arrives directly at the airport terminals. Pullmans do not offer the same advantages because of urban traffic conditions, however we provided some information about that except for the schedule. The benefits you listed are linked to the kind of room booked. Unfortunately your reservation did not include them but our staff would have gladly satisfied your kind request about free slippers and toothbrushes. Our bed and bathroom linen reflect the Best Western standards and the cotton pellets you found might be a feature of some very new towels of first use. We feel very sorry that you could not use our mobile phone which is very appreciated by our guests. If the officer who checks its functionality had been informed about the result of his maintenance procedure, he would have replaced the charger for sure. We regret you could not benefit from a very exclusive and special service. We would like to thank you for the time you dedicated to us and for your considerations. Kind Regards Stefania Guest Relations BW Plus Hotel Universo Roscioli Hotels Group - Roma

What’s a French bed?

There is not a shuttle, but they have a service to provide transportation to airport. We made the arrangements with front desk a couple days in advance. It was less expensive than the hassle of taking the train, which we also considered. The train station is about a block away.

We used Viator to set up our day trips and shuttle. The Hotel doesn't have one per se but will arrange as well.

Hello, does this hotel has air conditioning control inside the room? Thank you!
We were there the day after Thanksgiving and while there is AC in the room it's turned off in the entire hotel so don't expect to use it until they deem it necessary to turn it back on
