We were three female friends on a trip to see Rome for the first time from the 16/9-24/9-15. The price is fair considering you get your own room, I've seen a lot of dorm room places at the same price, and stayed at a place in London where the price were almost the same even though it was a dorm....

This guest house is near termini station - central station in rome. But this guest house is in a apartement building and no signage, so we have to ask people nearby. Dont be fool by the look of the building, the room is clean and good. The surrounding is also full with local restaurant and near to place of attraction

The advantages with the hotel is the price and the location - only five minutes by foot from the Termini train station. The problem was the cold rooms, the toilets with empty soap bottles and the thin walls - you could hear everything which was going on in the other rooms including in the reception where the receptionist kept sneezing...

Stayed for.2.nights. The hostel is really close to termini station and easy to find. The staff were kind to us. We were 4 and the room was big enough for our stay, the bathroom was also medium-sized, although we had some problems with the hairdryer that stoped working after 1 min and the shower was a little difficult to understand...

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.
