To say it's the worst place we've ever stayed is not an over exaggeration. We've travelled a lot the last 3 years, we are fair from fussy, paying the same price for hotels in different cities that we did for this hotel so we know that it was cheap but know what this kind of price shoud provide.

The place is really wonderful. The location is fantastic! Is is very close to the subway station and also 15 minutes on foot to the Roman Forum and downtown. It was very clean and spacious. Breakfast was available 24 hours! And the owner was super polite ad helpful! I really recommend this place!!!!!!

More of a hostel than B&B. Booked a double room with private bathroom for a January stay as the rates were good for the area. Arrived to Matisse B&B and was welcomed by an unpleasant staff member who did not want to give their name (even though we had an email confirming who would meet us). He insisted we pay... More

THe place was really ok. The guy that spoke with us were really unpleasant, the room was not that clean, the flush stopped to worked a lot of times, the hot water were not constant.. One of the most expensive places that I stayed in Italy.. THe good point is the location, the location is reaaally good!

In Rome with no place to stay this weekend, I contacted a trusted B&B, the Matisse and got ourselves a great room in the centre of town for a budget price. Easy, clean and convenient we had a lovely evening in Rome and slept like roses the following night. Sadly, it was just for one night, this time. But I'm... More

This was our first visit to Rome. When we - at last - found Matisse...... we couldn't get in! We didn't know that the street numbers started on one side and at the end of the street went back up on the other side of the street = the lowest and highest numbers are just opposite each other! There were... More

This is the ideal B&B when you go to Rome for some time. Everything is clean, it is kept clean everyday, there is breakfast every morning, your bed is taken care of, there are clean towels, soap, basically everything you would want from a B&B. I really enjoyed my time there. The beds sleep really well too, so after a... More

This place almost totally spoiled my stay in Rome. I arrived late, about 9p.m. There was no one to open the door and i had to call the number written in confirmation letter. After 10 minuter waiting the host arrived and he informed that the room i booked not avaliable due to overbooking. Instead he offered another one next street,... 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.
