Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

Cons

  • Pricey parking
  • TVs are small
  • Neighborhood can be dicey at night

Bottom Line

The Napoleon Hotel is a decent mid-range option near Termini station. Rooms are pleasant and simple -- if dated -- and bathrooms are large and clean. All 75 rooms are elegant and quiet with free Wi-Fi and flat-screen TVs. While the bar and restaurant don't have the best decor or atmosphere, service is highly praised from guests. A large American-style breakfast buffet is served in a cheery breakfast room and room service is available 24 hours a day. The friendly staff can arrange airport transfers and a free wine tasting is held on Friday nights. While the location is not the most central in Rome, the hotel is steps from a tram stop.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

In Esquilino-San Giovanni on the Piazza Vittorio Emanuele

The Napoleon Hotel is on the the Piazza Vittorio Emanuele in the Esquilino neighborhood. There is a fairly large immigrant population in this section of Rome which means that Chinese and Indian restaurants are not difficult to find. It's a bit far from major tourist sights, but a tram stop is just steps away.

On the other side of the Piazza is the Termini train station and surrounding neighborhoods. As with most neighborhoods surrounding major transportation hubs, the vicinity of Termini can be seedy. This is not the best part of Rome to be wandering around at night.

  • 25-minute drive to Rome Ciampino International Airport
  • 48-minute drive to Leonardo da Vinci-Fiumicino Airport
  • 7-minute walk to the Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore
  • 15-minute walk to the Opera House
  • 18-minute walk to the Baths of Diocletian
  • 19-minute walk to the Colosseum
  • 20-minute walk to Santa Maria degli Angeli
  • 6-minute drive to Palazzo Barberini
  • 6-minute drive to the Trevi Fountain
  • 10-minute drive to the Pantheon
  • 13-minute drive to the Spanish Steps
  • 13-minute drive to the Roman Forum
