I stayed at this hostel/hotel in may of 2014, and really enjoyed the experience. The facilities were very clean and comfortable and the services provided by the staff made making reservations and getting directions very easy. It is located very close to the termini train station and also very close to a subway station to easily access the whole city.... More

We stayed at Papa Germano for three nights while on a trip to Rome. For our first hostel experience we sure left we lots of funny stories. The room was nice but extremely hot. Although the weather wasn't the hotels fault we thought it was silly you would have to pay extra for air conditioning. We met some great people... More

We stayed at Papa Germano's for 6 nights while doing a survey of archeological sites in and around Rome in September, 2014. The location is superb for our needs: 5 minutes from the Termini and the Metro A & B station. Room prices are very good for both rooms with shared bath and with en suite bath, especially for a...

Great location for train station, hotel was very clean and the staff were great, very friendly and helpful. Bed was comfy and we had clean towels every day. Only down side is the noise from outside but it is in the city centre so what else would you expect and anyway we were so tired from all the sight seeing... More

The hostel/hotel is only 5 Minutes from Termini Station! Nothing ordinary at very very fair conditions! All you need in Rom is a bed, safe room and clean bath! All was perfect! You have to walk like 20-25 Minutes to Pantheon etc. but anyhow... How better to discover Rome by strolling through the city to the next side! Good staff... More

we booked a basic double but got a triple, so no big bed, but 3 seperate one. That wasn't a problem, just a bit weird. The shared bathrooms were clean and the staff at the reception was nice and helpful. The only drawback, which was a big one, were the thin walls. Some guests got up around 7 am and... More

Perfect location! Very very near to the central rail station (about ten minute walk) in a completely renovated classic building. Clean and quiet rooms for all budgets. Friendly and helpful staff. Very relaxing mood! Highly recommended!

Hotel is located close to Termini train station, which is convenient for arrival and departures but not good for walking around since the area is kinda shady. The hotel staff was friendly and very helpful, especially Claudio who is a local and knows everything about the city! He patiently answered all our questions and suggested sights to see. The hotel...

My boyfriend and I stayed at a horrible hotel just across the street called hotel Domus Mea. We decided to switch over to this hotel and we were beyond satisfied. We stayed in the superior suite which was beautiful, very clean and elegantly decorated. The overall hotel is super clean, they have computers in the lobby for guests to use... More

5 minute walk from Roma Termini proved to be very handy when first arriving to Roma. Staff were friendly and willing to assist where ever possible, even helping us with luggage up to our room on the 3rd floor. The room we had was sufficient for our needs, 3 beds and fresh linen/cleaning daily. Didn't have the breakfast, but the... 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.
