Neighbourhood
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.

Responded yesterday
Dear John S, We thank you for sharing your experience in the Hotel Universo. We have carefully read your review and considered your observations as very interesting. The hotel is an historic building, as you have observed; however, we have decided to furnish the rooms in a modern and functional style, preserving the original frescoes on the ceiling only in few rooms. We will be glad to welcome you again in a room that could arouse the expected sensations. Sincerily Stefania Guest Relations BW Plus Hotel Universo Roscioli Hotels Group - Roma

The hotel is only around 7 minutes walk from Stazione Termini (Rome Train Station). Good breakfast, fair price, great internet connection, lots of local restaurants around and easy to get to all the historic places around Rome via the Metro station.

Hi is the gym well equipped and any weights in there?
Hi: Sorry but I never used the gym but I assume it is more geared to treadmills etc. Best to check with them directly. Michael
