The hostel was very easy to find and well located. The staff was very friendly. The room and bathroom were very clean and comfortable, wifi and elevator working pretty well, heating could be better, the shower sometimes seemed to lose water pressure and you'd think you're running out of water, kitchen only had a fridge and we could use at...

Found a private room here for €30 which was perfect for a first night to organise my things and get my bearings. Short walk from train station, the basic room was clean and tidy, shared toilet was in the corridor. The only thing I can say (which I mentioned to the hotelier) is that the description of the location on... More

This is a very basic "hotel". Its more of a hostel. limited space and shared washrooms. But at the price, it serves its purpose very well. the location is great, very close to the main train station (Roma termini). We even walked to the coliseum from here (approx. 45min). there are sites to see in between (like the ministry of... More

We booked Cressy accidently when we were making arrangements for our trip to Rome. I was looking for accommodations close to Termini and Cressy showed up in my search... Only one double room left!!! Price was alright so I decided to "Reserve' a room at Cressy for just in case, while I planned to looked further. As technologically challenged as... More

Great little place 5min walk from Termini train station. Hotel owner friendly and helpful. 10min walk down to town centre and around 20mins to Colosseum. Nice neighborhood felt very safe even walking home at night. Be careful in Termini station for pick pocketers don't get help from anyone unless in uniform. Other than those people great place and great experience.

Clean rooms, shared bathroom amongst all guests can be crowded. Wifi in lobby area. I found staff friendly however some guests I shared a room with found one male staff member a little over friendly. Able to leave luggage after checkout for small fee, I think 2 euros.

The only reason I didn't give this 1 star is because the price and location were good. It's only a 5-10 min walk to termini, the main train station in Rome. The price was only 25 euros/night. Aside from these things, everything else was terrible. I should definitely have stayed elsewhere. I arrived at 1 in the morning, due to... More

Cressy was 5-7 minutes walk to Termini - centre underground station so it was very easy to travel: from/to airport and around the City. There is a bus (maybe 492) in front of the hotel took around 15 minutes from there to Trevi Fontana/ Spanish steps. Others attraction such as Colloseum, etc.. We used metro from Termini. The hotel owner... More

Ok firstly, its not a hotel, it is a hostel... But besides from that, for a basic stay it is fine. We stayed there 4 nights in a double room and everything was clean and tidy. We had no disturbance from other guests or indeed outside. The bathrooms were as clean as people left them, the only thing, the shower... 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.
