Bucharest, Romania
Reviewed 23 May 2016

The hotel is good enough, for a short vacation. Quality - price is ok. Breakfast is good, but always the same. Rooms are clean, personal is ok. Termini is close to hotel. The distance to touristic objectives is short by metro or bus.

I was looking for a hotel very close from the Station Termini, as I did not want to take a Taxi from there to my hotel. Hotel California is really just 5 minutes walking distance, i.e. when you take the subway or the busses for your sightseeing, its also most convenient. The hotel has a 24 hour reception with very...

The staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean and we had a separate toilet to shower room which was brilliant for sisters sharing. However, the website said the hotel had a bar/restaurant which it doesn't so false advertising and the T.V. did not work all week even after repeated requests, (news and sport catch ups whilst getting...

Dear polzeather, thank you for your kind review. We noticed that on booking.com page it's written that we have a bar and we actually don't: we used to but not anymore and the old advertising phrase is still standing, ee are sorry about that and we are going to cancel it immediately. About the TV, last week we had a...

The location of the hotel is ideal. Near the Termini Station and a lovely restaurant right outside the door. Rooms are clean and spacious, beds comfortable. The shower in the room takes a bit of getting used to! The staff are very friendly and the hotel itself is very clean. Breakfast is good.

Livonia, Michigan
Reviewed 18 April 2016

The most important feature is location. We were next to the train station, bus station, and metro stop. You could literally go anywhere in Rome. The front desk people were helpful and even printed our ticket information for us. Food was good. Great place to stay.

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.
