Near the Termini train station in Repubblica
Hotel Marco Polo is located in the Repubblica neighborhood near the Termini train station, which has a reputation for graffiti and loiterers. Repubblica is often not the Rome that people expect upon arriving -- it's not very picturesque and the roads here are paved instead of cobblestone. But in the last couple of decades the area has been improving. It is home to several centuries-old structures, such as the ruins of the Baths of Diocletian (ancient public baths dating back to 298 AD), the adjacent Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore, and the Michelangelo-designed Santa Maria Degli Angeli.
