It is not like staying in a hotel but apartment. The room is very big and Italian style. You need to share bathroom with another two room. There is only one bathroom on my floor but it is very small size.

Stayed here twice. Within walking distance of Termini and bus station, if, you don't have a lot of luggage to drag. Worth a taxi if lots of luggage. A little difficult getting luggage in and out of storage room before room was ready. Rooms are clean and comfortable, as are bathrooms. Lift is small, one person and their luggage at... More

Arrived at the hostel and was able to check-in painlessly. Very close to Termini and Castro Pretorio station. Do not be offput by the staff, Italians are not known for... More

We don't have a lot of negative points to say about this hostel. The staff was friendly and helpful. When there was a problem, they immediately solved it. The rooms were clean, although the bathrooms should be cleaned more often. The breakfast was a nice treat and fulfilling. The wifi was a nice extra. The hostel had a good location... More

This old-fashioned hotel could be a good alternative if you do not require to much to be happy. Good bedroom for a nice sleep. The old infrastructure could be revitalized. I spent only one night in the hotel, during a a fast connection on a business trip. 5 blocks from Termini Stazioni made my access easy to entire city. The... More

After all the trouble the got us in, claiming they could not charge our credit card and sendind and receiving e-mail for 6 weeks, many calls and appointments at the bank, we found out they couldn't charge it because they were trying to charge a wrong card. They didn't have they decency to apologize. I would never recommend this hotel... More

Can't think of anything bad to say about this place, the room was very clean, older but very nice, the breakfast was delicious, staff were all great to deal with. Its a 6 minute walk from Termini train station and a 1 minute walk from the Metro, so getting around from here is very easy.

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.
