This is exactly what you are paying for. Rooms are clean and quite big. Staf is very helpful and kind - they let us to get the reserved room couple hours before actual check-in time. Highly recommended! The only disadventage I can think of is that breakfast is reaaaally small, so you should be prepared for that.

Stayed 1 night at this hotel and found it clean and comfortable. Cheap and cheerful for a short break. Probably wouldn't want to stay longer than a few days. Bed was very comfortable, though bathroom was down the hall. There was a shower and a sink in the room, however.

The hotel itself was somewhat clean but service could have been better. The owner/front desk man wasn't the friendliest, had to ring a bell for him to come from upstairs in the building if you needed him. Wifi isn't free, and make sure you get good directions. There is a elevator which was a plus, we had a sink and... More

Very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very hard to find (and trust me, that's no exaggeration!). On arriving in Rome, we ended up resorting to asking another hotel (about 2 doors down the street) if they knew where it was and they had no idea! They had to ring the hotel itself to ask! If you ask me, if... More

The hotel is only 5 blocks(less than a 10 min walk to Termini Station) and one block from the nearest Subway/Metro Station. We were able to walk to all tourist sites from this location. The room was cleaned daily. Staff spoke some english and tried to accomodate everything we needed. Inexpensive in comparison to other hotels. Drawbacks: -washroom is very... More

I booked a room here for 2 nights for myself and my son (2 years old) through Expedia. We were in Pisa and because the hotel is supposedly near the Metro we left Pisa about 4pm expecting to arrive in Rome about 8pm. About 30 minutes before we arrived into Rome I got a call from Expedia who explained that... More

I stayed at this hotel for one night only with my friend. We booked the hotel for 6 nights, but could not stand it. The room was awful, it looked like a 50 year old apartment, with 50 year old furniture was split in half and made into a "room". There were cracks in walls, the bathroom was 1square meter... More

The room is very clean and very close to the train station (i.e. termini). The hotel is three flights up from the ground floor and the elevator is not available for guests of the hotel normally (there is a lock on the door of the elevator). Let the owner know your arrival/departure time, he will help for the luggage. 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.
