Lovely environment to have an evening drink around the pool, drinks were expensive though. Didn't eat here so cannot comment on the food.

Amazing place to chill and early dining especially during sunset. The hotel is nicely done. The illumination of the bar are superb. Good are great as well. Staff are friendly. Not sure about the wifi facility. Go for 2 appetizers or 1 main dish is sufficient for the stomach. Reservation needed during peak hours; walk in can be done as... More

I had the spaghetti with tomato sauce and fresh basil, 14€, and it was ok. A very small plate for that price, and really nothing special. I also had the Caesar sallad with chicken, and sorry to say, it was one of the worst Caesar sallads I have ever had! It was totally tasteless and the typical Caesar dressing, was... More

Nice view but the food selection is very limited. Been to a lot of hotels in Asia compare to the breakfast offered at European hotels, the Asian counterparts fare so much better!

The rooftop restaurant with tables at pool side makes for a formidable combination but add the food to the mix and the fun stops!! There are hardly and options in veg and the pasta served was next to non-edible...imagine in Italy at a premier hotel...The servers too are not very helpful...so all the more reason to avoid this place

Staff were busy chatting to each other than checking if customers need service. But view is splendid and drinks are good. So one has just to be patient.

Staying in Esquilino

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
