We stayed at Piccolo Principe B&B in Rome for three days. The access to the B&B is a bit off putting since the B&B is on the fifth floor and reaching the lifts means dragging your luggage up at least 15 steps. The room is a basic room with no claim to any luxury. They do not provide for any... More

We only stayed for one night but this was one of the best places we stayed in Italy. Located right across from Termini station, the room was quiet and extremely spacious! Our hostess was extremely welcoming and the free wifi was an added bonus!

When we were walking to the hotel, loaded down with bags and paranoid about the infamous Termini pickpockets, we were getting more and more apprehensive. From the outside, this hotel looks scary. But, as soon as you get inside, you're pleasantly surprised. The rooms are large and clean, and the location is EXTREMELY close to the train station (the reason... More

I had the most wonderful experience of staying in Piccolo Principe during my trip to Rome. The place is located very close to the Termini. It's essentially just a 5-10 mins walk from the entrance of Roma Termini. The closest metro station is also just about a 10 - 15 mins walk from the hostel. The place is located inside... More

I've stayed in dozens of 2 star hotels (once called pensioni - bathroom down the hall) in Italy and this ranks with the better ones. It is a given that a 2 star hotel will not come with all the amenities of the better 3 and 4 star hotels. On the other hand I've paid 2x as much for horrible... More

This was my fourth city and hence fourth hotel in Italy. This was clearly the cheapest among the four and I have quite a fair bit of concern with it. But my experience has proved otherwise. Location: Extremely close to the train station. Easy access. Although others mentioned about strange looking people, I guess it's just the colour of their... More

The hostess, Luana was quite friendly and helpful with maps and information for us. While she is not on site a lot of the time, she can be there when needed and can be contacted. While the neighbourhood looks fairly seedy, we had no troubles coming or going at any time. The hotel is conveniently located near the train station,... More

After much research for where to stay a few nights in Rome we decided for a B&B by Stazione Termini which would be convenient for busses, trains and subway lines. Don't expect a nice neighborhood....but that goes for most areas near any major train station. It includes a BASIC breakfast which is fine for us being that we are used... More

At first, this B&B seemed very accommodating. They emailed me and asked for my estimated arrival time and said it was ok to check in a little early. Which I thought was nice. When we arrived to the hotel, I thought we were in the Ghetto of NYC, spray paint across the door and very trashy looking. The B&B was... More

High ceilings and a pleasant atmoshere, VERY nice and helpful owner Luana! she was all organised with Maps and Info! Excellent location.

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.
