We had a prepaid reservation and ended up spending to stay at a hotel in a better location. Unless you plan on taking the subway the entire time you are in Rome, the location is far from the center of town and there are very few restaurants and bars nearby. Upon checking in the concierge was extremely rude and refused...

Booked lastminute on a website a double room with bathroom, for half price. Good value for money, but the normal price, in my opinion, is too expensive! Just 10 minutes away from Termini Station on foot, very well served by bus, and five minutes away there is a subway station. It is a 3 star hotel, the outside looks a...

You can walk to this hotel from the train station, it will only take about 20 minutes. The room was nice, as was the hotel staff, but the area is not safe. The buildings are covered with graffiti, men loiter in the streets while drinking from paper bags, and police sirens blare all night long. If I had to do...

Let me preface this by saying I paid $150 for three nights. I have stayed in more expensive hostels. Positive: super cheap if your lucky, location isn't horrible as long as your willing to walk 15 minutes to the sites, breakfast (cafe) is complimentary, close to osteria angelina, and rooms are quaint. Negative: breakfast is served in a dungeon, our...

The Donatello is not what I would call a hotel. Let me explain: there's a line of trash dumpsters on the sidewalk close by. The Donatello is only one more of those dumpsters: it's claustrophobic and you are treated like garbage. The difference is that I guess the breakfast at the dumpsters may be slightly better. Don't waste your time...

I stayed for 3 nights in December 2010. The rooms are tiny. I could not rotate my suitcase. I would recommend it only to tourists who have tours booked with their agents and who have pickup and drop off as it is difficult to get to the main city centre from this hotel. The surrounds of the hotel are unsound...

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for 3 days in Sept, overall we appreciated the hotel for what it was, a tourist class hotel. It has a 2 star rating, which I feel it right on. The rooms were smaller, but quite nice in appearance. The beds were firm, with extremely thin pillows. Our particular room overlooked the...

Average rooms, needs some basic updates (bedspreads, curtains, etc). Service was just adequate as we were given incorrect instructions regarding busses, etc. (however excellent at breakfast) Location okay (15 min walk to metro) but not really central to main tourist district.

We came from Venice and was driving down Italian cities when we noticed that the further down we went, the harder it was for us to get breakfast meats but that's ok.

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.
