Mid-week break in Rome and this place was perfect for what we needed. Brilliant location, so close to the colosseum and round the corner from a Metro station with easy access to Vatican City. The room and guest house was clean and well stocked with amenities and breakfast items. Christina, the owner, was brilliant the whole week and very flexible... More

This is one of the best places I have ever stayed and it is perfectly located and very well priced. The place is located in a nice area of Rome near San Giovanni, near the subway on the same line to the Vatican and a 15 minute walk to the Coliseum and 25 minutes to all the main attractions. Also...

The apartment has good location which only 10 minutes walk to the Coloseo and 3 minutes walk to the Metro Mazoni. Room is small but clean. Good option especially in peak season. I will definitely recommend it to friends. The host recommended a very nice restaurant to me , good food and competitive prices.

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Gentes B&B is a few meters away from the second largest Basilica in Rome and a few minutes' walk from the main symbol of Rome, the Colosseum. The hotel is located in the heart of the capital's history: the popular Via Tasso, actually, is the site of the Historical Museum of the Liberation of Italy and even if is in a central position in Rome, is extremely quiet, because it's away from the main streets and protected by the building of the Scala Santa. ... more   less
