Within walking distance of everything in Rome and a perfect (dog-friendly) service. Professional staff, clean rooms, all for a reasonable price. The parking they suggested worked perfect. Overall excellent for us.

Very conveniently located near Roma Termini, I decided to stay here for my last two nights in the city. Got a pretty good deal but there was no internet during my stay due to some system upgrade, or so I was told. Breakfast costs extra but there are places in the area to eat so that isn't a big deal.

The recently renovated rooms are very good value, not particularly large but adequate . Bathrooms very nicely decorated with shower cubical. Reasonable clothes hanging space with drawers and shelving. B & B deal is good there is a renovated basement restaurant which like the hotel rooms is kept spotless. Stairs to restaurant fairly steep and although there is lift access...

The hotel itself is closely placed to railway station Termini and has a lot of nice restaurants and bars around. Room service was inconsistent, didn't empty the waste baskets, toiletries partly refilled. The breakfast is what you can expect and the buffet is well done. A real disappointment was the free wifi as they never got it working at all...

The hotel is good, the location and the surrounding restaurants in the hotel (next door) proved great food and great atmosphere - I did not get breakfast at the hotel so therefore I can make comments on that - they do have a friendly staff and the rooms are comfortable and spacious, by the exception of the shower and bathroom...

This hotel is in an ideal central location to the main train station and ideally situated for all attractions. The rooms were very clean and basic, but given the age and type of building - it'd be hard to make this much different. There's only a breakfast option here, which is primarily continental buffet based, with a couple of hot...

I've stayed here over and over again when I have a trip segment beginning or ending in Roma. I do that because of the killer location close to Termini but not so close that you hear it or smell it all night. The desk staff is a little better than average for Italy, and they're on duty in case you...

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.
