East Maitland, Australia
Reviewed 5 April 2016 via mobile

Hotel was clean with friendly helpful staff. Situated within very easy walk of main train station (Roma Termini) and surrounded by numerous cafes and restaurants. Easy access to all the major attractions. Push bikes could be hired in the foyer - although personally I wouldn't risk my life riding on Rome streets. Very reasonable price and a basic breakfast included.

I travel to Rome very often and this time I chose this hotel. Actually, it was the best choice ever, in terms of the cost performance, hospitality, location, cleanliness of the room, spaciness of the room, etc. Finally, I think I found the best one! Thank you very much to all the nice hotel reception employees!!

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.
