Its a very cheap hotel at 60 euro per night all taxes included. The people running the hotel are very very very nice. The first night we landed after 12 in the night and the lady was very kind - told us to go sleep and we'd talk about payment the next day. Its a house and had a very... More

This easy to find hotel near to station Termini is a great hotel if you are looking traveling on a budget. Although the rooms and building are somewhat old, they are clean and have airconditioning. The 'Madame' of the hotel hardly speaks English but is very polite and has a small cute little dog ;) we shared the bathroom with... More

Within 100 metres of the central transport hub of Rome. You can't get any more convenient than that However, the Locanda is easy to miss, even when you've looked it up on Google street view. The entranceway is actually shared by 4 other micro hotels on the same building. The Locando is situated on the 4th piano (floor). Take the... More

We stayed here for 4 nights. The hotel is 50m from Roma termini and the metro. Our room was spacious, clean and the two shared bathrooms ( which were right outside our door) were more than adequate between 5 or so rooms. The bed was comfortable and sheets very clean. Although the owners didn't speak English, they were friendly and... More

We were very pleased with our stay at Rome's Locando Otello hotel, a very basic, budget, family-owned hotel a short block's walk from Station Termini. It was easy to locate and perfect for our needs, meeting all our expectations as a clean, quiet, simple room to nap after our overnight flight, store our luggage while we headed out for the... More

The strongest point are very nice location - 10 steps from Termini station, cafe, bar, liquor store, metro and so on. No one did disturb me. Fast and permanent Wi-Fi connection, fridge and it`s clean always really! There`s only 1 drawback - the owner doesn`t know English( But anyway, I am very happy that i stayed there!)

A few steps from Roma Termini train station which is in the centre of the City, so we can visit everything by foot. The room are good only for sleeping. During the night some dubious guys were on the street but there wasn't any problem

The best thing about this place was how close it was to the Termini, less than a minutes walk. lots of restaurants and attractions in walking distance. Place itself is nothing fancy, the whole place had a musty smell about it. Small bed rooms, small bathrooms. If you just want a place to sleep and if you're not too fussy,... 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.
