Very friendly host, short walk to Metro. It was in a high-rise with other businesses so the name wasn't very apparent. Only on a intercom system - in small handwriting. Appeared to be an apartment that was remodeled into several hotel rooms. No problem finding it. Very clean, modern. Nice shower/bathroom, cold AC. Would recommend for the budget traveler.

Stayed there for 4days with a friend. The room had wifi, tv and a nice spacious shower. Although sparse in furniture the room was very clean. Very close to stazione termini which is a plus as this station even has a 24hour pharmacy. When I had to stay for a day in bed the owner was very kind and kept... More

Ok, she did not and I left the lugagge. We went out to visit the city and when we... More

Very nice staff, good spacey room, excellent service. Very close to Termini train station. Nice and quiet. Rooms were clean, service to measure, nothing was too much asked. We could recommend this to any kind of traveller.

We were three female friends on a trip to see Rome for the first time from the 16/9-24/9-15. The price is fair considering you get your own room, I've seen a lot of dorm room places at the same price, and stayed at a place in London where the price were almost the same even though it was a dorm....

This guest house is near termini station - central station in rome. But this guest house is in a apartement building and no signage, so we have to ask people nearby. Dont be fool by the look of the building, the room is clean and good. The surrounding is also full with local restaurant and near to place of attraction

Staying in Esquilino

Neighborhood Profile
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)
A Casa di Penelope" embodies a new concept of Hotel, a unique space with several rooms where art, atmosphere and hospitality blend together and create a fascinating path of sensorial involvement. Design... Comfort... Innovation... Location... Vision...every room is an open space designed to be a synthesis that gives a broad liberty of expression to our guests embraced by the milky white of our industrial resin floor. Hands... Mouth... Ears... Nose... Eyes... every room is characterized and become a unique space defined by the details that live within it: original works of art made of Bakelite and designed by Giovanni Lamorgese in every bedroom, vintage objects shown in the hall. The building is located in the Umbertin area very close to Termini station, 10 minutes by walk from the main important monuments of Rome like the Colosseum an the Roman Forum. The Vatican, the Spanish steps, Trevi Fontain, Piazza Navona are all no more than 15 minutes away from the hotel on public transport. To get to Fiumicino airport it takes 30 minutes by train from Termini station. ... more   less
