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.

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

I read a ton of the reviews before booking, so knew what to expect in terms of the friendliness of the owner (which was true, she was a tad abrasive). I had zero issues getting into the building at any point in the night, which was a concern addressed in some reviews. The room itself was by far the nicest... More

Got in a little late but no problem as we let the staff know in advance. Found it on Google Maps beforehand so had no problem finding the location. Great area, close to the train station. Supermarket right close. Nice to have a fridge in the room. Various ATMs in the area, and a good pizza shop right beside if... More

Nice B&B a short walk from the Termini train station. Easy to find and with a lift to the third floor. We had a quite spacious room with a small balcony to the inner court. Had some problems with the fridge, but it was solved quickly. Clean room and bathroom, good shower. Breakfast was quite standard, but with good scrambled... More

arrived 6pm at night. I made sure to call in after reading previous reviews(their reception desk is not 24hrs). When I got there, there was someone waiting for us and it did not bother us that there was no receptionist. The room was a great size and bed was comfy. Location was great! 5 min from the termini.

This boutique hotel was great, just a 5 minute walk from Rome Termini, close to a landmark church, old fashioned coffin elevator that you close the doors for manually, ample breakfast, great coffee shop around the corner, decent and cheap restaurant just down the road, clean and modern rooms, digital TV, friendly staff. All in all a very good experience.... More

Stayed here for 5 nights, we walked about 10 mins from Termini with 2 heavy wheeled luggages, no problems with that. Hotel is on level 3 and there is a small lift for your luggages for easy access. Room was sufficiently spacious, clean toilet and shower, and had free wifi and air conditioning. Air condition was a bit weak, and... 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.
