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

I've been hosted there by a week and the experience was great. Before arriving my emails was quickly answered and in the city Judith helped me a lot. She speaks many languages and can help visitors very well :-) Roberta is very friendly as well. The place is very comfortable, breakfast is delicious, Internet works perfectly, and the neighborhood calm... 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

Stayed here for 4 nights. The location is great, everything is within walking distance but as its 10 minutes from Termini station, if you are anywhere in the city and not feeling up to the walk back, transport is easy. The rooms are fitted to a high standard and very clean, comfortable beds. We has a balcony room at the... More

Excellent location! Walking distance to all the big attractions and close to the metro for those further away. Nothing was too much trouble for the very helpful owner. Great breakfasts! Come and go as you please. Spotlessly clean, fresh towels etc every day. Fantastic value!

Stayed here for a long weekend in July 2014. The guesthouse is really nice clean comfy and quiet. Good value for the money. However, as some of the other reviews have mentioned, the reception situation is very strange apparently you have to be there by 2.30pm to check in or you run the risk of not getting in. It is...

Five excellent ensuite modern rooms with fridges occupy the 3rd floor of the building. There is a lift. The staff are so friendly and helpful. There are two of them who work alternate days and they really were wonderful. Place is easy to find. Walk from north end of Via Merulana and it's on the left shortly before the first... More

Very cute, nice, clean hotel. Good breakfast-includes scrambled eggs! Enough food to get you going. Wonderful staff-very friendly (make sure you let them know what time you will be arriving). There is not a large sign out front-can be difficult to find. We took a cab from the airport and the driver was able to find it based on the... More

We got a good deal on the Merulana Inn and had never been to Rome before. We emailed before we arrived to make sure that someone would be there to meet us. The directions on the website were spot on and we found the Merulana in easily. There to meet us was Roberta - a very friendly and welcoming lady.... 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.
