My wife and I, together with another couple, stayed in Hotel Sonya from 7 to 10 May 2011. All the staff we dealt with, both before and during our stay, were extremely helpful, and went out of their way to make us comfortable. The rooms had been recently renovated and were very comfortable. Double glazed windows, shutters and heavy drapes...

Our Italy trip couldn't have started any better than our first hotel stay at Sonya. The location was exceptional - close to Roma Termini, in a clean, safe neighborhood and excellent room amenities - free wifi, modern italian furnishings and room facilities, Don't expect 5star accommodations, but for the cost, it was more than worth it and rivals other 3...

My husband and I booked a night at Hotel Sonya the night before flying back to the US because it was close to Termini. My first reaction to the hotel was that it was dingy and out-dated. The staff was appropriate, but not overly helpful. We asked for a cheese shop close by to stock up on Italian cheeses before...

I recently was in Rome and stayed at the Hotel Sonya....quaint small rooms but very clean and staff was nice and very helpful. Good location to all the main sites about 20 minutes from Trevi Fountain. A little longer to Spanish Steps but with good walking shoes it gave you a feel for Rome. Loved the old time elevator and...

Booked the hotel for one night pre-cruise based on Rick Steves recommendation. When we arrived a little after 10:00 am our room was ready and we were able to check in and drop our bags in our room before heading out to see the sites (which the Front Desk staff helped us with on a map they have). The metro...

We found this place both in Rick Steve's Rome 2011 book and also a friend had stayed there earlier in the year and recommended it. The Hotel Sonya is easy to find and very close to the Termini station. When we checked in, we were told we were at the new hotel. I was a little worried at first. Someone...

The rooms were clean, did not have nice views, but it is located in the theater area and safe. Their WiFi system is kind of weird, in that you have to get a new user name and password every 6 hours and even then, it is so so as far a connection. The breakfast is quite nice with a good...

Me and my wife only stayed for a night in this hotel as we had to catch a cruise ship from Civitavecchia so I wanted a hotel near Termini station.

Stayed 1 night at this hotel, near the Termini Station. The staff was very attentive, the room was clean. The bathroom was spacious. Unfortunately the mattress was like sleeping on a table.

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.
