LOTS OF EXPECTATIONS WITHOUT GROUND thanks for your feedback your remarks show a confusion certainly not generated by us. 1) Your expectations about the rooms with balcony were not guaranteed as the system does not consent to sell rooms in advance with a characteristic, consequently your request could be met upon availability only. In addition to that you were assigned... More

We were welcomed by Roberto, who showed us where everything was and gave us advice on Rome. The room was comfy and clean, we also had a wee balcony which was cute! Breakfast was at a wee coffee bar just down the road and was lovely. We actually booked an extra night here as we loved it so much! There... More

Easy to reach from the main railway station, safe neighbourhood and within walking distance to everything. The rooms were nice and clean as well. We stayed just one night, but would not have hesitated to stay longer. When we arrived we were met and given lots of information in a friendly and good manner, this helped us a lot. Great... More

We have booked the Be first for one night via internet then contacted with Fabio. He was awesome. He guided us very well, we were able to find the place easily and then Fabio's advises were indeed helpful. Great location, close to Termini, excellent stuff, quite clean. You never regret.

We had booked to stay in Be First through Booking.com and rates were satisfactory. The property was located within walking distance of Termini Station, so transportation- whether by bus or subway was easy. It was easy to find- based on written instructions from Fabio. It is an apartment located on the 1st floor with 4 rooms. We arrived early but... 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.
