Bottom Line

This generic hotel is situated in the busy Esquilino district, in the heart of historic Rome by lots of restaurants and stores, as well as famous sights. There is a lobby bar and a breakfast room that serves a free breakfast buffet, but rooms are extremely bland and showers in some are tiny. However, business travelers may appreciate the two small meeting rooms, and there is free Wi-Fi throughout.

Oyster Hotel Review

Scene

A chic hotel decorated in a modern style

Upon entering the hotel through a large revolving door, guests find a simple lobby with several seating areas. There are large windows, both wood-paneled and stucco walls, and large pillars. There are countless red leather club chairs and black leather couches for relaxing. Modern, abstract art lines the walls throughout the hotel, but if the weather's nice, the highlight is the terrace with a strikingly beautiful view of the city.

Location

In the heart of historic Rome by many of the city’s famous attractions

The hotel is centrally situated in the busy Esquilino district right by the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore. Other popular tourist attractions within walking distance include the Rome Opera House and the National Roman Museum. The Termini Train Station is nearby, making public transportation easily accessible. Many famous streets and piazzas are in the area, including Via Cavour that opened in the 19th century. The hotel faces it and there are plenty of bars, restaurants, and stores by the hotel.

Rooms

Minimalistic rooms with modern amenities

The room decor here is very bland, bordering on stark. The light blue walls only have a couple of small pieces of art, all of the furniture is classic wood, and the blankets are a simple light orange. All of the rooms are furnished in the same manner, but have different makeups depending on the number of beds. They are available in standard and superior versions. Nice amenities, however, include flat-screen TVs, mini-fridges, and free Wi-Fi. The marble bathrooms are tiny, but do include bidets and towel-warming racks.

Features

Basic features include a bar, breakfast space, and meeting rooms. The highlight is the outdoor terrace.

The Orange American Bar is located on the first floor and serves a wide selection of drinks. Its decor mimics its name with orange bar stools and an extremely unique orange chandelier hanging over the wood-paneled bar. There are also armchairs and sofas in the common area. A free breakfast buffet is served in a very bright breakfast room. Airy vertical blinds over the windows and floor-to-ceiling mirrors give the space a larger feeling. Both hot and cold options are served. Two small, modern meeting rooms can fit between 30 and people, and each comes with standard equipment. The highlight here, however, is the sunny outdoor terrace.
