We stayed at the Hotel Positano in Rome this past Saturday night, June 23rd. It was fine! And the location is only about 4 blocks from Rome Termini in a nice part of town; there were several trattoria with outside seating in our immediate vicinity. Our room on the first floor with four beds was spartan(looked like a hospital room)...

The bathrooms are filthy, there are no mirrors and the shower doors are hanging off so the bathrooms flood. we had trouble locking and unlocking our door, but when reported to reception the staff were unhelpful and may made no attempt to sort the problem out. There's only one key for every shared room, and the bedrooms were not cleaned...

I have stayed in Hotel Positano several times and I find that the staff has been quite friendly and helpful. However, my advice is to avoid rooms on the upper floors without private bath because the shared bathrooms are kept in a horrendous state. Rooms with private bath on lower floors are quite good and are a good value. The...

I thought 65 E a night with bath was a good deal, but I must recomsider. The staff were indifferent to rude. My room was dark, airless and grubby. The bedcover was filthy. The TV did not work, the haidryer had no hose, and the place smelled of old sox. The location is excellent, but that is about all I...

This hotel was in a pretty good location near the train station. There were also many good restaurants in the area to eat at and a couple of very convenient combination Laundromat/Internet Points nearby. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the room was decent. However, the shower was gross and mildewy and did not drain well. Our whole...

Staying in Esquilino

Neighbourhood Profile
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.

“Try to get a room at the back of the hotel, further away from the street. Room #107 is just by the street so it will be noisy in the night.”
