First thing to say is that if your looking for a hotel, this isn't the place. This is an apartment block with 6 rooms on the first level of a building. The rooms are spacious and the staff are really friendly! When in Rome, a hotel may not be the best option. A nice guest house or apartment in a... More

Had a wonderful stay here with my husband and have returned on a few occasions. The location is perfect and the staff are very friendly. The rooms are small but who spends time in a room in this amazing city! The channels are in Italian so some English channels would have been nice however it's still a lovely place.

Excellent apartment hotel for the price. Centrally located in Testaccio district. There is no 24/7 reception as this a flat within a residential building, but Luana the manager at the time, made herself available through email and wassaup to coordinate and waited for our arrival for check in. There is kitchen and nearby grocery stores to buy food, if you... More

Simple minimalist hotel with very little rooms (only 6). Great service from staff, who are very friendly and always happy to help. Plus it has a good location because it is close to the subway. Also offers breakfast which is a good option.

Booked this stay as a Christmas present for my fiance over the valentines weekend. The hotel is within walking distance of the main attractions and even only took us 45 mins to walk to the Vatican City which is the furthest from the hotel. You get to see so much more by walking around. Try to eat slightly away from... More

This was the perfect location for any trip to Rome! right around the corner from the Train Station, but far enough away to be a neighborhood! Very close to the Forum and the Coliseum. The Metro is a block to get to the Vatican! The hotel was superb in cleanliness, security, service! We enjoyed every night we were there and... More

The hotel is small, almost unnoticeable when you are standing in front of it. Overall it's a good buy for Rome. The place is clean, friendly and quiet when windows are closed. With open windows noise level is still acceptable. Location is also good, walking distance to Colosseum and several basilicas. Breakfast not spectacular, too much carbs, sweets and no... More

This b&b offers very well designed and big rooms In a good location. The staff is really friendly, and overall for the price, we'd say is one of the best alternatives In Rome. The breakfast is ok and the bathrooms have a lot of space. Definetly going back.

Nice enough place ,but would not call it a Hotel,just a B&B. Had breakfast but no choice just a toasted sandwich with juice and coffee. Room was ok but no windows ,I could hear the reception outside our room,it has wi fi but had to ask to get connected .dont think I would stay again as I wanted a hotel.

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.
