This hotel was perfect! The outside of the building was lovely, with a locked gate to the street, helping with a feeling of safety. As a backpacker, this hotel was very convenient because of its location very close to the major train station. The location was also within walking distance to all the site of Rome, except the Vatican, but...

Very friendly staff who are more than eager to help with sight seeing in Rome. This hotel was the 3rd on our European vacation and quite a nice one compared to our others. The room was very clean, quiet, and the air conditioning felt wonderful. We walked from Termini train station (which wasn't very far). If we ever travel back...

NIce hotel, but outside could do with a bit of a paint job, infact in the whole of Rome could do with a paint job, grafitti has ruined the outside of many buildings not the tourist sights though, but the tourists sights are within easy distance of the this 'hotel'!

Compared to the other hotels I've stayed in Italy, the Serendipity Residence surpasses them all. It's a convenient 10 minute walk from the Termini station and on our trek up the stairs, exhausted from the heat, we were greeted with welcoming staff and cups of juice. The hotel room was extremely clean as well as the bathroom. Riccardo was helpful...

I booked the Serendipity based on reviews I read on TripAdvisor. We arrived at 10:00 pm, coming from a flight at Ciampino. We walked from Termini. It was a 5 block walk and was easy to find. We buzzed in and with a little help from someone else entering, found the entrance. The desk clerk couldn't have been nicer. He...

I booked the Serendipity in 2006 for my family's 5 day trip to Rome. Initially skeptical of online reviews and ratings, I was delighted at the fast and friendly email responses to detailed questions about our stay. When we got to Rome Ricardo treated us like family and made the hotel and his gracious spirit one of our best memories...

My son and I shared a twin at the Serendipty in February 2007. Even though I booked through Orbitz. Not quite sure what to expect. Other than having trouble finding it since I mixed up Viale and Via, our stay was great. The room was spacious and ensuite. Heat and cooling worked very well. Being a small hotel, noisy guests...

This hotel is 10min walk from Termini but is located in a quiet neighborhood. It is not so easy though to find it as it is in a gated complex. The elevator is very small (2 people at most). The staff speaks very good English and is very friendly and helpful. The room is spartan but well maintained. If you...

I booked this hotel not knowing what to expect, but was certainly pleasantly surprised! The hotel is an easy walk from Termini rail station and is convenient to central Rome at a great price. The outside of the building makes no mention of the guesthouse/pensione on the inside other than a small nameplate next to the buzzer. Three buzzes and...

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.
