We stayed 3 nights at Hotel California and overall it was a pleasant stay. We arrived and received room 506. Spacious, clean, with a very comfortable bed. But I must say that I was caught off-guard in regards of the bathroom. It wasn't an actual room, since the toilet and the bidet were in a separate room, and the shower...

Stayed at Hotel California for four nights and it was overall satisfying. Pros: PERFECT location. A very short walk to the main station. Also a fairly short walk to most attractions such as the colosseum. The free breakfast was nice and had a lot of variety. The room we stayed in was spacious and clean. Cons: The hotel is situated...

Hotel California was more than I anticipated. The hotel was elegant, beautiful, extremely convenient, clean, and comfortable. The price was very very reasonable, and wow, what a fantastic breakfast ranging from 2 different types of eggs, sausage, cold cereals, deliciously filled cornettos, biscuits, jellies, breads, beverages, yogurt, etc. It was wonderful. The room was immaculate, had an extremely comfortable bed,...

They have friendly staffs and the rooms are very spacious and clean. Breakfast is also good because its starts early. The only problem was the wifi connection because it was intermittent... Overall, it was a good choice for us.

This hotel is very nicely located. I also liked the breakfast spread.WiFi works without any hitch. Lift is very small and painful to travel. All amenities worked as per the commitment. Of course I loved the name which reminds me of the song from eagles..

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.
