I was in Rome for 5 times, and this hotel was the best! Aurora is very helpful, the hotel itself is very clean, furniture is new, breakfast is nice-yougurt, cereal, juice, sandwich, coffe and buns-not typical for other italian hotels! The location is good-subway station is just round the corner and Termini station is only 10 minutes away from it.... More

Spacious room, clean, well decorated. Breakfest was simples, but enough. Location is good. Easy to go around the city from there: castro pretorio station is about 50 meters. Aurora is a very kind host.

Close to the main train station. Rooms where big enough for what we needed, and very clean. Price was reasonable and Aurora was very helpful. Like other reviews stated the hardest part of the exercise is actually finding the entrance as it's not signposted as such!

It took us about an hour to find this place, because there are absolutely no signs of it. Moreover, even in the building, we went through each floor looking for it... it's on the first floor fyi. Aurora made really delicious croissants each morning. Place seems like newly renovated, and room was spacious. The only concern i had was the... More

I have stayed at the b&b Castro Pretorio recently and it was the disaster: the window was not locked because the lock did not work. Moreover, the window faced to the main street with lots of cars during the night. I could not sleep during the night at all. Unfortunately the personnel was not supporting and refused to change the... More

The rooms is hard to find the first, cause there isn't a sign to indicate it. But after you find it and after your first walk to town your could realize the strategic position of the rooms. Near to everything even by foot or on bus, metro. Big nice rooms, with wifi and an owner eager to answer in whatever... More

OK, let's start with the one negative and some helpful advice if you choose to use this place as finding it was not easy if you don't speak Italian! There's nothing from outside the building to show it's a B&B and as it's in the area called Castro Pretorio people simply say you are in it when you ask for... More

This BB was really a great and pleasure surprise to my trip to Rome. It was next to METRO station (Castro Pretorio- blue line- line B) and next to station TERMINI. It was close to the center so many times we walked instead of taking the metro. It was clean, very big and had an excellent decoration. Miss Aurora was... More

Good things first: the place is very nice, recently renovated and tastefully furnished. The bathroom was spotless, the room large enough and definitely pleasant. It is very close to the Castro Pretorio metro station, which means that it takes you literally 10 minutes to reach the Colosseum - and anyway you are just a couple of bus stops away from... More

I was very anxious because there was no English review though its website is pretty good and give much information. The result was much better than expected. I was not used to the European houses and buildings, felt a little bit disorientation in locating the place at first time. It is located in the first (2nd in my country) floor... 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.
