Cons: you have to pay extra 30€ for check in after 20:00. We where not able to close the window. It was broken. Whereas that the hotel views is on the train station, we had much noise in room. We can not sleep. In the shower one moment flowed warm water, one moment cold water. It is hostel.

We stayed for two nights while we visited Rome. We picked this hotel because of its reviews and that it was in walking distance to Termini. It was a bit difficult to find at first, and the neighborhood seems a bit scary because of the walk from Termini's main exit to the B&B, however the B&B itself is safe and... More

When we first arrived at Roma Termini and walked to the B&B I thought I was at Port Authority on W.42nd street and 8th Avenue in Manhattan. Many undesirables and homeless sleeping on the street. I immediately said "this is not the place to stay." The area was crowded and scary. But being a New Yorker I weathered the storm.... More

We looked up the area with google map so we got the idea of what it would look like. We've tried to call to set up the check in time several time but had hard time understand the man on the phone so we just go. The location is good. We found that walk to the B&B from metro A,... More

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

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.
