I booked to go to rome as a surprise for my boyfriend, this hotel was the only thing that ruined his surprise. The rooms are very dark and dull, curtains haven't been changed since 1800's. We went to have a shower and we had no hot water, we were told we just had to wait (bear in mind we we...

A very pleasant surprise thanks to a special offer on a booking website. The Hotel Rex is excellent value for money. The location is fantastic in via Torino close to the Opera house and Termini station. Friendly welcome with lots of useful information including a little booklet on the hotel, a list of local restaurant recommendations and indications on a...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Rex for our daughter's 18th birthday. The staff were fantastic - so helpful. We loved the quirky nature of the hotel - it was very endearing. Continental breakfast was good. The position of the hotel was perfect - really clean and tidy. It was so central which was great for visiting everywhere....

Just finished a 5 night stay in Hotel Rex. We loved about everything. The location is good. I think Termini is the best location for tourists. We could get anywhere from the main train/bus station. Maybe not the best area for food but you can hop on the metro or buses and be anywhere in the city in minutes. We...

I enjoyed the convenience of Hotel Rex as it was a 5 minute walk from the train station, Termini, and about a 10 minute walk to the Colosseo. It was perfect for our quick, overnight trip in Rome. The room was small and clean and the price was affordable. If modern is more your style than this hotel may be...

I stayed there only for one night, but it was really pleasant. The room is very comfortable and there was a tube in the bathroom, what made my 6-year-old boy extremely happy. The breakfast is really tasty, with lots of options and a delicious cappuccino (or espresso) in addition. I highly recommend and when I go back to Rome I´ll...

Location good, 5 minute walk from Termini train station, which has key transport links to the airport. Note: You can just skip the train to the airport and get a coach outside directly to the airport. You have to book this prior to getting on the coach though. Takes around an hour to get there! Hotel is basic but if...

This hotel is in desperate need of some repairs and updates. I get that it's old, but neither of my bedside lamps worked (wired into the outlets), the carpet looked like it hadn't been cleaned in forever, the chrome on the bathroom fixtures is wearing off, and the central air system ONLY blows hot or cold depending on the season....

+ extremely helpful staff + spacious rooms + central location - rooms a bit outdated I can understand the discussion on whether this is a 4 star or not, but I paid 60/night (including breakfast) and felt that was great value.

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.
