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

Nice hotel and hostel at a reasonable price. Only one small entrance so it was secure. We stayed in a private room and liked it. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom was clean. Family type atmosphere. Had a small lounge area with access to around 4-5 computers with free internet access. Good value for the money in an expensive... More

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...

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.
