We enjoyed our stay at this hotel. It is an old building that is fixed up nicely and is very central for visiting in Rome. The breakfast is very generous and the service is friendly and prompt. Rooms tend to be small but this is Rome. Everything was clean and well equipped.

The reception staff are polite and quick to check in . A staff helped us with the luggage to our room and did not ask for tip - impressed! The room is small but...

Our room was very nice! The entire staff work hard to meet our needs. Locate of the Hotel was great for walking tours or getting to public transportation. There were many local restaurants with in walking distance, plus locate shops. The breakfast the hotel served was great!

Stayed 2 nights before our cruise. Location near most major sites and in a safe area. Staff friendly and accommodated my wife's special needs. Room was clean, reasonable size and well maintained. We don't like to travel and stay in hotels that look like America. so Hotel Sonya was perfect. Good breakfast.

To be honest, we were a bit underwhelmed upon our arrival to Hotel Sonya in Rome. After an 8 hour flight, a 45 minute taxi ride with a character driver, the hotel system was down and we were unable to be checked in and our room was not available for some reason. We were moved to a neighboring hotel, Hotel...

This is a cute little hotel with very friendly staff but I felt like I had gone back in time to the Flinstones because the bed was a board and the pillow was a rock. As other reviewers have said, our room was tiny but that really wasn't a problem because we were there to see Rome, not to hang...

Stayed at the Hotel Sonya for 4 nights. 5 minute walk from the train station. On arrival was was moved from the main Hotel Sonya (opposite the opera house) to the Hotel Opera (to the side of the opera house), though apparently they are the same hotel! Check in ok, though nothing special. Hotel appearance very bland. This hotel did...

I really enjoyed the Hotel Sonya. I visited the hotel with my husband and kids and my parents. They gave us side by side rooms which was very convenient. The staff was all great and had no problem communicating with us in English. The housekeeping staff was so kind and super sweet to my little boys. They also kept the...

Hotel Sonya was a quaint boutique hotel with spacious room and clean bathroom very conveniently located right in the Treveste area of Rome with a very convenient 5 minute walk to the Roma Termine. The Colosseum and Forum was a 20 minute walk. The entire area around Hotel Sonya is filled with all the most amazing restaurants and cafes 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.
