The staff are wonderful. They constantly go above and beyond to assist customers. In particular Lorenzo made this vacation a delight The rooms a clean and efficient. The continental breakfast could benefit from a more varied assortment but it was sufficient.

Reasonable prices, friendly and helpful staff. Room was sunny, comfortable. They cleaned the room daily. On the check out they helped us by keeping our luggage in their store until our flight left. The only downside I can think of, was the breakfast timetable (served until 9.30 a.m.) Close to metro station and really close to the Colosseum. What more...

Just returned from a wonderful 4 day break in beautiful Rome. The Donatello is a lovely little budget hotel in a good location. The tram stop is a 1 minute walk away with the No.3 tram taking you straight to the Colosseum. The Metro (Manzoni Station) is a 5-10 minute walk away with connections all over Rome. The hotel was...

We went with our daughter and my brother with spouses, stayed March 26- April 2, 2017. Everything was exceptional. The rooms were what we expected, being in Europe before. The staff is outstanding. Close to metro and great restaurants close. Off the beaten path, but worth it.

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.
