Recommended Highly (but not for my parents)from A TripAdvisor Member
I can understand why there are mixed reviews of this hotel, it is defiantly not a classic hotel in the flavor of a Holiday Inn or the like. The style is as advertised very modern, but the open common areas are a welcome change to the normal stuffy confined common areas of other European hotels.
The area I personally thought was great, there is a little open air market right beside the hotel and a fruit market just beyond that. It's not a tourist area and that defiantly adds to the appeal assuming you are sick of standing in line for everything. I didn't once see anything "shady" going on in the area and I was out at all hours of the day.
You will rely on taxi's a fair amount in this area, but the wait for a taxi is roughly 3 minutes. To put things into perspective, a ride to the Colosseum costs in the area of 6 euros and a trip to virtually any fantastic restaurant will run you maybe 15 euros tops, honestly, if you're staying in this hotel this shouldn't reallly be of concern.
The lobby staff are generally very helpful, but there is the odd language barrier that has to be overcome. The restaurant /lounge staff are also very good for the most part, Saturday evening was the only time I had a lack luster experience with a staff member but the other staff made up for any shortfalls with the one waiter.
They were in the process of updating rooms for the high season while I was there and there was evidence of some minor work being done throughout the hotel, but overall the repair in progress work did not detract greatly from the experience.
Overall I recommend es.hotel for people that are looking for a unique hotel to stay at and are open to different concepts. Myself being a 25 year old gentleman enjoyed my stay greatly, however I know that it is very possible that my parents being more conservative my have felt out of place and intimidated on some level by this hotel. If you're looking for a "touristy" area or hotel, or if you're a "touristy" tourist go somewhere else, if you're tired of standard hotels, or looking for modern comforts and an enjoyable relaxed hotel; es.hotel may be a good fit.
It was a wonderful weekend! Thanks to Es.from A TripAdvisor Member
LOVED IT!!!!!!from A TripAdvisor Member
Very disappointingfrom Chris75
The good thing at Es hotel is the nice swimming pool and bar on the last floor (but on one side you have the view on the railways).
Very poor service, Es Hotel is design hotel where nothing works (I love design hotels, but not Es Hotel). I was supposed to stay 3 nights, I decided to leave the hotel after 2 nights. Big disappointment!
Es hotel fantastic!!!from A TripAdvisor Member
Interesting Hotel, Very Poor locationfrom A TripAdvisor Member
to cancel my reservation at the last minute when I read reviews of it
on this site. The first thing I would say is the hotel absolutely isn't
5*, not even close. Luckily I didnÂ t pay 5* prices so I didnÂ t feel
ripped off. I'd describe it as a 3/4* hotel with aspirations! It is
definitely in need of maintenance in places and the bedrooms are really
tiny. Having said that it is an interesting hotel and if you want to
stay somewhere ultra modern, don't mind being mildly challenged by the
room fittings and are really not bothered by the location then go and
stay. The service is a bit hit and miss. The reception staff could not
be more helpful (suggesting restaurants advising on everything) but a
problem with the room was never resolved and we didn't get our wake up
call on the day we were due to travel home. We did have a very good, if
expensive, meal at the restaurant. Why did we eat there? Because we
were too tired after a day of sightseeing to head back into the centre
of Rome for dinner. This in a nutshell is why I wouldn't go back to Es
Hotel. The location of the hotel is very poor. Reception staff
described the area around the hotel as ethnic - but we saw drug dealing
and felt intimidated walking through the streets around the hotel to
get to the Metro. If you are staying here expect to rely on taxis.
Enjoyed my stayfrom A TripAdvisor Member
great hotel - rotten location!from A TripAdvisor Member
This is a fabulous hotel, beautifully designed and elegantly presented.
Having read some of the reviews on this site before we left, I was concerned and almost changed my booking, however the hotel was great (even if some of the design was not fully thought through, it was so-oo refreshing to be in a hotel that wasn't stuck in an 80s time-warp!) Teresa on reception was fantastic and the general atmosphere in the hotel was good. The down side...? it is terrible area, quite depressing and the wrong place for a five star hotel. We specifically booked the hotel for the heated out door pool that wasn't heated and we had an ant invasion in our room(s) - we were moved. The fab electronics and contemporary fixtures and fittings came with no instructions to the extent that trying to turn the bedroom lights on usually resulted in the blinds coming down or the bathroom lights going off or vice versa.
The rooms are supposed to be air conditioned but our experience of four rooms was of a system that failed miseably to control the temperature..... Yet none of that could dampen our pleasure in our stay and experience of the hotel...?!!?

Top Local Tips for Rome
rome guide book get a restaurant that's recommended in a book.better chance of enjoying yourself
go to termini central station the hotel is just 100 meters from there the good restaurant were the romans go is trastevere area
Top Tips for Rome Bars and restaurants in the tourist hot spots will charge cover and service charges - remember that you don't need to pay these by law! Same old story - local business trying to rip off the tourists! Also, you can avoid the massive queues at the Colloseum by buying a combined ticket at the Palatines. Simply walk straight to the front of the queue - save yourself hours! Walk everywhere!
