This review is LONG overdue, but I'll start off saying the woman who runs this inn is very sweet and helpful, considering she doesn't speak much English (and we still had a great time trying to converse with her!). However with that said, I think travelers should know this is more like a guesthouse than an inn or hotel. Someone... More

The location of the Inn was a little awkward to find initially as there wasn't really a clear indication of its location physically (e.g. A sign) but the place itself was well located in Rome. The lady to greet us wasn't the friendliest of characters as to say The room itself was very well constructed and layed out. The beds... More

We've got a good deal on this hotel. It is clean and all the main attraction are within walking distance and very close to the train station. The breakfast was nothing spectacular but it filled us up for the day. The wireless worked perfectly. I suggest that you do just a little bit of research on google maps bevor you... More

The location is near Roma Termini for us to rest a night before heading our way to other parts of Italy. The room was clean and newly renovated. It was small but comfortable. No complain at all. The toilet and shower was clean and of a good size with the necessary toiletries provided. Breakfast was the normal Italian fare you... More

We were shocked to see some bad reviews on here. The room was lovely - a comfy bed, an excellent powerful shower, superb location and a great breakfast. I don't know whether some people expect haute cuisine, but for us it was a good way to fill us up for the sightseeing we had ahead of us. It consisted of... More

Stayed there last week and was pleasantly surprised. The manager (forgot her name) was so lovely and helpful, explained everything, gave me a map and directions to places, restaurants, shopping etc and couldn't help enough. She even packed me a breakfast box as I left at 7am the next day. I paid 95 euro for the night and thought the... More

Travller's tip: Email them a rough estimatted time of arrival (ETA) as a courtesy and to make sure you get looked after. We were coming in by plane from Mykonos and gave the Hotel an ETA of 5pm. The plane was delayed an hour so we were very nervous that we would struggle based on the other reviews and not... More

Very cozy, very clean, great service, very friendly staff. Judy helped us with info about best places to eat , mostly where locals eat.Stayed at Merulana 2 years ago and felt guilty for not writing my review sooner. Next time in Rome we will stay there happily.

We got in late but had no problems as we had let the owners know! Staff was friendly room was clean and modern, but doesn't show from the elevator or the lobby. Was shocked how beautiful it was inside! Buffet was average but overall great cheap place to stay

I was at Merulana Inn from 07/09/2015 to 07/12/2015 When we checked in on 07/09, the Hotel was without running water, although it came back after two hours later. The following day was ok, water in the morning and at night. The third night, when we arrive after a very hot, and sweaty day, there was no running water. (since... More

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.
