I stayed at Giovy B&B approximately four years ago and had a very different experience (see review posted in 2010). The experience this time was completely different, from our arrival. It was confusing getting in this time, with no response at the buzzer- eventually when we got in we were greeted by a fairly friendly man, who spoke very little... More

I guess one thing good about this hotel is its location. Walking distance to the train station. It is also easy to walk to several tourist attractions though walk can be 20 to 30 minutes. It is rather quite clean as well but I think the hotel needs a bit of upgrading! Also breakfast was the same everyday and we... More

We went on a budget trip so this worked perfectly. You see a lot of people complaining about how it wasn't what they expected but you cant expect much if you are paying a low price. The rooms were clean and looked after well. The staff were very friendly and helped us more than we expected. it is very close... More

I didn't have super high expectations for this place to begin with, but there were a few things that were a bit difficult. First off, breakfast had a lot of food items, just none that really work for breakfast. The wifi does not reach all rooms and there is no seating area. The owner is not very friendly and does...

The B&B was what we wanted for our short stay in Rome. The room was clean and met our needs. The breakfast was reasonable as there was a lot of choice. The location was good for the train station, which is the reason we chose the B&B, but the area around seemed a little bit dodgy in the evenings.

I picked this B and B because of past reviews. I wanted a place where the manager spoke English and could give me some recommendations on where to eat, etc. where there was a "homey" feel. I did not find that here. I think there may be new owners. Minimal English. When I asked for a restaurant recommendation, I was... More

Within a five minute walk of the central train station in Rome, we found B & B Giovy and loved it there. The staff were extremely helpful and gave us excellent advice about our car-less, tour-less, visit to Rome. In other words, we wandered around on our own, but had excellent advice from the staff. Examples of good advice: if... More

Earlier reviews on this B&B were better than recent ones and it appears that this B&B has lost the plot. I would have rated it 2 stars except for some excellent service from Raihan who served Breakfast but also gave advice on places to see - such as a new shopping mall a bit of a distance out of Rome...

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.
