Our experience at hotel Donatello was not the best. My wife and I are not complainers but when we checked into our room we just wanted a shower. Unfortunately the shower head was broken and water just went everywhere. We went to reception and the young man tried his best to fix it but was just getting wet. We told...

I stayed at Donatello for 4 nights in sept.2012, and i enjoyed a nice hotel. The room was not big, but big enough, and we had a small balcony facing the street. The staff was very serviceminded, and the hotel is placed just a 10 minutes walk from the rearest metrostation. But you can also just walk to many of...

Location: I find it bizzare how some reviews have said this hotel is poorly located. It is a 20 minute walk to the Colosseum at most. The number 3 bus goes from a stop just around the corner from the hotel (2 minute walk), outside 'Bar Maggiore'. The number 3 takes you to the colleseum and historic centre in about...

My friend and I just returned from our trip to Rome, and we thoroughly enjoyed our 6 night stay at the Hotel Donatello. We'd booked our trip through Virgin Vacations, and since they'd picked the hotel, we were a bit unsure of what to expect. Upon our arrival, however, we were pleasantly surprised to find that the hotel exceeded all...

I just returned from a trip to Rome and stayed at Hotel Donatello. It was not as well located as we were led to believe. It was a 50 min. walk to the Colosseum and the nearest subway was about 15 min.. It was very hot while we were there but the hotel turned off the air conditioning from early...

Stayed two nights. Pros: (1) Very attractive room and common areas. (2) Air conditioning worked very well, which was good during the heat wave. (3) Night clerk was very helpful and friendly. Cons: (1) Far from Termini train station. You will need to plan how to get from Termini to hotel before you arrive. We walked a very long way...

We stayed at the Donatello in May of this year. The hotel is a little further off the main drag than where we usually stay - however it was easily accessible and not far from a Metro station. Our room was very clean with a large bathroom. The bath had a jacuzzi feature but unfortunately it didn't work. The shower...

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.
