Would like to thank Ivan at the front desk for all his help during my stay, which was unfortunately curtailed due to mechanical problems beyond night staff's control. I did feel that the people, especially Ivan, were courteous, friendly and helpful, showering me with guidebooks and capuccino. The location is not bad, especially during January sales, .... and it only...

Clean, safe hotel within minutes of the Roma Termini (on foot). Easy walk to many of the major sights. Sumptuous feast for breakfast! Staff is very welcoming and helpful. Great value for the price, no compromises on safety and comfort.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel over Christmas for 8 days. The location is nice, not a tourist trap. We stayed in room 335 (very nice room, large with nice window....the only sore point is the cleaning ladies' locker is right next to it so it gets noisy with their preparation and chatter from 7:40am to 8am)....not good...

This hotel is just great. It is within a walk distance from the Termini Station, where you can take the shuttle to the airport or train to your next destination.

We stayed there for 10 nights (end of December 2010 - beginning of January 2011). The double room was prepaid 3 months in advance, directly at the hotel, 110 EUR / night. BIG mistake!

We stayed here for 3 days before a cruise. It was perfect. We walked everywhere. Little far from the Vatican, but still walking distance for an active family. The hotel was beautiful, breakfast was awesome, and the staff was great. If we visit Rome again, we will definitely stay there again.

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.
