Fine bed, good breakfast and friendly staff! Good location from which the city centre can be reached by foot. Around the corner are metro stations. We also liked restaurant Disco Volante in the neighbourhood, visited by italians not so much by tourists.

We came to Rome by train and looked for a hotel near railway station as the plan was to take Leonardo express to the airport on the next day. Unfortunately it took us 20 min instead of promised 10 min on foot from Termina: we followed the navigator in iphone, maybe if you ask the owner in advance, you can... More

We booked a triple room for a long weekend in Rome. Location is ok but not very central as it seems, you need to walk 10 minutes to get to the closest metro, 15 to Termini. The "home" is in a building and split in 2 apartments over two floors. The finishes and decorations are well done and modern, it... More

We stayed on Nov 26th for one night. The staff was very friendly and their service was really personal. We had a beautiful room looking at the backyard. The room and the bathroom were very comfortable and very clean. It was quiet enough. The breakfast which was included in the price, was very nice with enough things to keep you... More

We stayed as a couple at Deseo Home in August and loved it. It is more like a bed and breakfast but so comfortable! The place is within walking to distance to Roma termini (10-15min) and an easily accessible public transport (bus right outside the door). The staff were friendly and very helpful, providing us with information on how to... More

This is more like a bed and breakfast. We had a room for three and it was quite comfortable. Buses to the centre are a five minutes walk. There is an excellent pizzeria close to the bus stop. A few restaurants close by, reasonable and good. The staff was very helpful, with information and trying to make our stay pleasant.... More

My family (5 persons) stayed at Deseo Home late June. Deseo hotel is a couple of floors in a multi-use building which is very common in Rome. The location is about 20 minutes walk to the Fontana di trevi (historical center). Alternative you can use the public transport like bus (about 2 min away) or metro (6min away). We got... More

The hotel is very nice, it is more like a private hotel inside a building. A walk from Termini Station is around 15 min, so be prepared for that. The hotel is nicely situated right in the middle between the Termini Station with Metro and another Metro station, also very close to bus stop. All this is reachable by foot... More

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.
