Needed a quickie for an over nite so trawled the net to find a cheap place to stay. The only problem was getting into the place.....not clearly marked and behind a fortress door. could not raise anybody and looked like having to go elsewhere.....but fortunately a person came out and with a fractured explanation managed to convey we were needing...

Our family of 4 was well-accommodated here. The room was comfortable and clean. The location is very handy for transportation by train or metro. The light breakfast and espresso machine on site were also convenient - we could get going quickly in the morning. If we were too tired to go out for a meal we just went to one... More

Emiliano and Fulvia gave us a warm welcome and good suggestion for visiting Rome. The room and ensuit bathroom are very clean and good wifi. The bed are so comfy. The B&B is a few minute walk from the termini station. What we like the best is Cappucino with Lavazza!! By the way, be sure to mail them what time... More

The host asked me about the arriving time days before for they are not always in the apartment. And he waited us downstairs and opened the door. He was very friendly and ready to help. The room for 4 is not big, but acceptable and was cleaned every day. It was tidy and clean. And it was really a bargain... More

I really loved the bed and pillows, this was absolutely clean, not cold (january) Mrs Fiorini, the old womand who runs the B&B, speaks only Italian (as a latin I understand) but is absolutely delicious and helpful. Emiliano speaks very well English. Also, don’t forget your phone, you’ve to... More

This hostel was a joy to stay in, with very friendly staff and an unmatched cleanliness. I travelled over to Rome with a group of 60+ with 12 of us staying here. Having been in all the other hostels, I was met with mundane services and hostile staff, but the host and staff here were memorably welcoming. The basic utilities... More

If you want to see Rome on foot, this guest house is ideal. This is our first time in Rome. Rome is as foreign as it gets for us and we found the guest house extremely convenient. This is also the first time I have encountered such a lodging, my previous experiences were with business hotels. The warm and personal... More

My wife and I stayed here in October 2013 and had a great time. It is close to the main railway station (Roma Termini) and metro station which makes getting around really easy. Emiliano, the host, is a great person and extremely helpful. From helping with your luggage to planning your itinerary, he is always there with a smiling face!... 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.
