Our second stay at Hotel Universo, which has been renovated since our last stay. Great position, great staff, comfortable space. Breakfast is always a pleasure. Location is great, close to the train station but within walking distance of all the key tourist areas. Would stay again, our choice when in Rome.

The hotel was easy to find and close to the Termini station, making it hassle-free when you arrive in Rome.

The bathroom and wardrobes etc were downstairs and you accessed the bedroom via a staircase within...

We stayed at this Best Western for 5 nights and thought it was excellent, very clean, good size room for Europe, great breakfast and great gym facility. Termini Station just a short walk away and location was easy walk for almost all of the major sights of Rome. Vatica was easy metro ride.

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.
