The hotel is located 5 minutes from termini station and a foot walk away from all the main attractions of rome. The staff was nice and our room had very good AC. The "breakfast" is a self service and not very reach.

On our arrival to Matisse b&b we realized that we got a room in a different building, which was tiny and very different than the pictures on the website. Nothing from the roman atmosphere that we expected to get, nothing from the luxury that is being described. During our stay, there was a serious problem with the wifi, with the... More

Paid 160 euros for Saturday and Sunday night. 10 minutes walk from termini but far enough away from thieves etc around tremini. Room and facilities excellent for price. Roberto the manager is very friendly and helpful. Clean and quiet room etc. We're over 50 from Australia and think it's a lovely and convenient hotel :)

Great location, reasonable price and great host. There are 3 separate buildings, each of them has public kitchen with 24-hours breakfast (yogurt, milk, water, juce, croissants, cookies, flakes and even wine sometimes), so you get not just a roob, but a kind of apartment with some meal included. Location is absolutely great! It's near to Termini, but locates on a... More

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!

Staying in Esquilino

Neighborhood Profile
Esquilino
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.
