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

The Wi-Fi and AC work great, and there is plenty of fantastic advice from the hosts on some of the very best places to go in Rome. All at an excellent price, will recommend to family and... More

Unfortunately we did not have the chance to meet Frank as he was on vacation when we visited, however he made sure to leave us in good hands with Jonathan and made our stay very enjoyable. When we arrived, Jonathan had given us a map of Rome, a brake down of the metro/city/places to see and great advise on what... More

What a find. Gorgeous place, great location, and New York style! Fantastic communication from Frank. Helped with advice, and suggestions when our luggage did not arrive with Vueling (a truly terrible experience) Frank helped with arranging a transfer- and the driver waited patiently whilst we were dealing with lost luggage. The apartment is in a great block- super location we... More

Amazing stay!!! Cant say enough positive things about Frank, he took the time to show us on a map all the must do's in Roma, allowed us to leave our luggage in a secure location since we arrived so early, and even found us a link for tickets to the sold out Stones concert and made a reservation for us...

Staying in Esquilino

Neighborhood Profile
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.
