This hotel is not in the centre but it's inside the walls. You have tram 5 and 14, right outside the Hotel door, which will take you to Termini station in about 10 min. There is also a bus stop, but we didn't use it. The metro station Manzoni, is about 8/10 min walk. San Giovanni is close and the...

Chosen as we were travelling with our twenty something son over 6ft so we wanted a decent triple room at a reasonable price. Disappointing then to be moved on the first night to a hotel round the corner with less than decent triple rooms. The staff were efficient and pleasant but not welcoming or friendly (unlike the hotel we spent...

Once we arrived at the hotel we were moved due to overbooking to a hotel near by for one night. When we returned to the Maggiore we checked in and the rooms were very good and spacious with plenty of storage. The room had a big bathroom which was let down by having a shower head which didn't mount the...

I came to this hotel as a capstone for a school trip. The hotel was OK at best. Pros: room was clean. Bed was comfortable considering it was 2 twins pushed together. Cons: Fan in my room didn't work. No air in my room. Shower was very very small resulting in taking a shower with the curtain stuck to you....

Nice hotel. City centered. Cleaned every day. We had a room with street view. We stayed 2 nights. Our first breakfast was poor: a lot of guests, almost empty plates. Staff did the best they could . The second breakfast was fine. Don't forget to close the shutters , because it's noisy. We have a great time. Thank You :)

Great staff, good breakfast, everything crisp and clean in the room and bathroom. Good transport links, location fairly central. Slept very well. Perfect for a short stay (5 nights in my case). Hope to be there again soon!

Rooms at this hotel is something horrible and there is no information about paying tax at the end of the stay. Bed linen is changed once a week ... no kettle in the room, and instead of towels some tablecloths....

Dear lusika123, Thanks for expressing an opinion on our hotel.Probabilmente she booked a standard room, where there is no kettle and the dimensions are smaller. Taking a superior room, it is true that you paid more, but the room would have been different. Looking forward to welcome again, I remain with my best regards massimiliano celestini / resident manager

the staff are great, transport links are great....there are a couple of cafes and shops near by but the area is really not good! i would not like to walk around there at night alone! there is a bus stop and tram stop right outside which were great for getting around. breakfast is terrible, in fact we only tried it...

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.
