I stayed for 3 nights. The manager was very friendly. The location is about 4-5 blocks from Roma Termini. There are two supermarkets where you can buy food and cook at the Lucky House or plenty of restaurants.

We were staying 4 nights at Luckyhouse in September 2014. It is generally acceptable if you don't stay too long. The B&B is located close to Termini/Main station, 2 minutes to walk. From there you can reach every destination you want. The area around is a bit shabby, with many homeless people hanging around at night. Our room was looking... More

Few steps from Roma Termini surrounded by restaurants and super markets. Walkable distance to couple of attractions in Rome. Bus station is near. Actually breakfast is not included. We can access kitchen and we have to prepare tea or coffee. Tea/Coffee powder, biscuits, milk are available. Nice caretaker. He allowed to keep the luggage after we checkout. Neat, clean and...

We stayed in Lucky House one night on our way back from Venice. We arrived in Rome at 3pm from Venice and wanted to spend few hours exploring Rome before leaving for home the next morning. The reason we booked this place was because of its proximity to the train station. We had only one evening in Rome, we thought... More

Me and my partner wanted a decent hotel that was affordable and close to explore all the sights. A tough order I know. Luckily for us the Lucky House was all of these things. Just a couple of streets or so away from termini station , the hotel wasn't that hard to find. A member of staff was outside to... More

We picked this hotel just to rest our souls while trying to see the major attractions. Its a fast 2 blocks from all trains, busses and metro. The rooms are spartan clean and adequate, with a very helpful host. It's actually a series of rooms within a large building shared with other businesses?With one room serving as a reception area....

I looked long and hard for a hotel that would fulfil my usual criteria of interesting, local and affordable. Lucky House ticked all three with a great emphasis on the characterful. My boyfriend and I went to Rome for 4 nights and found it to be a really good base, it's not central but everything is within walking distance if... More

Great location enar the central train station. the room was large, clean and comfortable. the kitchen area for breakfast was a little bit cramped but as the room had a balcony we could eat our breakfast there instead. Great place for a short stay when you have an early train in the morning or arrive late in the evening.

Staying in Esquilino

Neighborhood Profile
Esquilino
Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only way to describe the Esquilino neighborhood. 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 neighborhood 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 center. Liberty architecture, large piazzas, and long boulevards mix with archaic arches, secret side alleys, and beautiful churches like Santa Maria Maggiore.
