Stayed one night and didn't had chance to check breakfast. But the room is big and clean, very modern, comfortable bed. Got a room with sauna and jaccuzi. Not sure if this is the standart in all rooms. Very close to Termini, 2 min walking, so in case you need to be close to the train station it is a...

This hotel is situated very close to the termini which makes all areas of Rome accessible to you. It is also very easy to use this for travelling to and from the airport at 14 euros for a first class ticket and the journey takes approximately 40 minutes. The hotel was clean and rooms were adequate. The bathroom set up...

The hotel is a very unusual set up, the reception and floor 3-5 belong to the hotel, where as floor 1 and 2 is another hotel. Reception and check-in- The website says it underwent a renovation...

East Maitland, Australia
Reviewed 5 April 2016 via mobile

Hotel was clean with friendly helpful staff. Situated within very easy walk of main train station (Roma Termini) and surrounded by numerous cafes and restaurants. Easy access to all the major attractions. Push bikes could be hired in the foyer - although personally I wouldn't risk my life riding on Rome streets. Very reasonable price and a basic breakfast included.

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.
