This was our best stay in the 4 places we roomed in Italy. It was newly remodeled and clean. The windows were even double pane for even more quiet. The location was close to the subway, restaurants and a grocery store. And the best Gelato ice cream store was a few blocks away where we indulged at least once a... More

Frank's House has nicely appointed rooms, conveniently located to major sites such as old Rome and Colosseum .It has easy access to metro,however we found the room extremely noisy and the area not pleasant with a lot of homeless and alcohol drinking at night. We have now stayed on the other side of room in the Prati area ..a much... More

My husband and I stayed here for our first two nights in Italy. It is in a great location, very close to the train station and metro. It's about a 15 - 20 minute walk to the colosseum. I highly recommend going to Luzzi restaurant which is 5 minutes from the colosseum. Go at night time it is beautiful! One... More

My wife & I stayed 4 nights in Rome at Frank's House. Frank was a wonderful host, taking a lot of time greeting us & giving us a good lay of the land (it was our first visit to Rome). Our room was beautifully quaint & clean. Our bathroom was located just down the hallway & also very clean. We... More

This was one of our favorite spots during our stay in Italy. Hosts were extremely welcoming and full of advice on attractions, transportation and restaurants. Amenities were terrific. Room was spacious, clean and well kept. Location was convenient to Metro and good restaurants, super market and daily produce stands. Despite being in a busy area, it was very quiet and... More

As a second experience, I was even more impressed at Frank's hospitality, his attention to detail, and the comfort associated with my time there! I plan to make Frank's House a home-from-home experience whenever I am in Rome, whether for work or play.

Location - fantastic - 5 mins walk to the metro, 10 mins walk to Termii Central Station, 20 min to the Colosseum. To be honest there was no need for us to take the public transport... More

I came down for the weekend with my friend from Florence. The location is very convenient because it's very close to the main train station Termini and it is also close to the Metro. It is very central and easy to get to other neighborhoods like San Lorenzo and Monti, and many of the attractions like the Colosseum on foot.... 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.
