My husband and I just stayed here on a quick trip to Rome. Only a ten minute walk from the train station. And not a far walk to most of the sights. We stayed for three nights. The room and bathroom were very clean and neat. The room was spacious, comfortable for 2 people. We had a lovely view overlooking... More

We stayed at this hotel for 3 days. At check-out time, there was a slight misunderstanding between the hotel and us. Although it dissolved in a minute thanks to our Italian speaking family, we were sad to see the crude manners they handled it and the humiliation easily blew away the positive impressions on the hotel in us. It nearly... More

This hotel is beautifully appointed, a converted seminary run by the Australian Arch Dioceses. The rooms are huge by European standards, the ceilings high with 20 feet windows. The central courtyard is picturesque and gives the whole place a very open feeling. The rooms are elegant, modern and super clean.The bathrooms have no tubs but a beautiful and capacious shower...

Very good hotel. The room has a very high ceiling to make it spacious. Breakfast is decent and with good variety. Very good location, only 12 mins walk from the Rome train and bus station. Reasonably priced.

I stayed two nights after flying 24 hours across the planet from NZ. I would highly recommend it, especially if you arrive jetlagged, sleep deprived and disorientated like I did.

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.
