The hotel is very close to Termini and at a good location (by public transport or foot) to all monuments and historical places. The neighborhood is a little bit weird and looks dangerous at a first sight but a lot of hotels, school and universities are located there and actually is ok. There are a lot of street merchants trying... More

If you're looking for a hotel to only sleep at nights and use wifi you are in the correct place. It is located at the back side of Termini station in an apartment. Nice and cheaper way to stay in Rome. Hotel staffs are helpful. Also rooms are clear.

We stayed at A Casa Di Penelope for 2 nights, checking in after 36 hours of travel so we were looking forward to a quite and comfortable place. We had some difficulty finding the B&B - the concept being rooms to let are in a larger apartment building populated by other business. It is not well signposted at the gate,... More

Only stayed one night before catching my flight the next morning. I personally love the concept of this property, it is not a hotel but as someone else mentioned rooms to let in a larger apartment. I felt safe and secure at all time with my family, the room was clean and big enough for the 4 people. The room... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and on arrival, we were immediately scolded by a Bangladeshi who was the reception. We were waiting for our friends to return from scouting for the hotel before going into the hotel together. He scolded us for keeping him waiting and did not bother to understand the situation before scolding us. Our friends did... More

The hotel does have an advantage of the location, as its the close to the Termini station and 30mins walk to all the main attractions. Rooms are small and have just the basic amenities.Do not expect anything great. Most important thing is that the Room and the bathroom are clean. In the day time housekeeping did come as the beds...

The place is definitely not a hotel but rather rooms to let. So if you are expecting hotel services you will probably be disappointed. The room was too small for four people. It was actually a triple room with an extra "bed" (it was more like a matress). However, Jewel, one of the people in charge, was very kind and... More

This one depends on luck. In our 3 nights stay we tried 2 rooms. Both on level 1, same level as the recep. The first was a small room in a separate area with the recep, low privacy but at least wifi and toilets were good. The second room for the last night was a much much big room just... 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.
