Arrived, found the after a while as the marking is not the best. Two facilities with separate entrance in one building. The receptionist told us they cancelled our reservation as they have a group of children they had to accomodate. Even if we had confirmation and paid reservation fee. Of course, they didn't let us know. They offered us a...

Just recently got back from my first trip to Paris. I traveled with a friend and had a wonderful time and decided on settling on this location for my last night prior to my departure back to the U.S. Finding this "hotel" was the first problem. There is no clear signage and is located on a major corner with other...

We stayed here for two nights, and we were satisfied. The on-line booking was simple and it worked. The distance from the Termini is 5 mins by foot, and the 492 bus stops directly at the hotel- it goes to the Vatican city and it's passes by Pantheon, Fontana di Trevi, etc. The nearest metro station is close too. It...

Having been to Rome before, I have had the opportunity to stay in various locations, but certainly Serendipity surpassed my expectations. The staff is incredibly helpful and friendly. As for the location, it is situated just a few blocks from Termini and incredibly convenient. I was so happy with the hotel that I actually stayed two weeks for the first...

Located about a 5 minute walk from Termini Station. When walking to/from Termini, there is a major street to cross. I was timid my first day and used the crosswalk at an intersection with a traffic light, but gradually adapted to Rome traffic and used the more convenient crosswalk that is in front of the hotel (no traffic light).

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.
