Very convenient location close to Termini, spotlessly clean and probably the quietest hotel we had stayed in a while, great for a good night's sleep. Breakfast has good variety and is plentiful. Staff is generally helpful when requested but can be uptight in trying to control guest behavior. There are numerous stickers warning guests not to do this and that... More

Not a party hostel, but a clean and quite place to stay for your visit to Rome. I stayed here for 3 nights in June 2015, in a 4 bed mixed dorm. The rooms were neat and clean, and staff was very helpful and friendly. These are apartments spread across 2-3 floors, with about 4-5 rooms of varying occupancy in... More

Papa Germano - very clean and good location. Staff is friendly, but many don't speak very good English (you can still get by though). Downside is that there were only two one-person bathrooms for a floor of 12 people, there were no lockers, needed pay for air conditioning, and slow WiFi.

experience: very nice staff: very friendly and helpful room: perfectly clean and cozy. The interior was completely up to date. Only the wifi connection wasn't working sometimes; router needed to be restarted for the connection to be OK.

I've stayed here twice 1. When I stayed in January, first thing to mention is the girl on the reception. Few times I have found someone so helpful, that knows so many languages and always smiling. I was using the wifi at the reception for a while so I noticed she was like that with ALL the customers even for... More

I recently stayed in a dorm room (4 bed) for two nights. The staff at the hotel were amazing and so happy to help whenever needed. Really clean! Would definitely stay here again when I return to Rome. Five minute walk from main train station in Rome... Two stops from colosseum...four stops from Spanish steps. Very happy!

I bring a small group of people to tour Italy every April and have been comfortably accommodated at Pap Germano every time. They have helped me make bus reservations from Rome to Orvieto and been helpful in every way. It is not far from the rail lines. There is a street market, fresh fruit and cheep stuff every Tuesday around... More

This place, while not a 5 star hotel, is perfect! Staff were extremely friendly, it was safe, quiet, and the perfect starting off point to our Roman holiday! We had a number of friends coming and going to meet us there for a few days and they were accommodating and welcoming. We felt secure there and were able to get... More

My husband and I stayed here for about 5 nights during our first visit to Rome. We booked a basic double room online but was given a twin (2 single beds). The staff kindly immediately rectified it by pushing them together and remaking the beds with a double sheet, but it turned out to be quite uncomfortable as the beds... More

Really good location, a few minuets walk from metro and bus station. Walking distance from romes sites. Plenty of shops/markets & eateries close by. Very clean hostel with friendly helpful staff. Safe for any solo traveler.

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.
