We stayed in the Matisse B&B in August (2016) for 5 days. When our transfer dropped us off, it was not clear where the hotel entrance was, however we realised we had to press a small buzzer (among about 8 other buzzers) to gain entrance. After pressing the buzzer and waiting 3 times, we finally had a reply of ‘Yes... More

If you can accept the fact that the WC and washing facilities are outside the rooms, and if you don’t object to walking up to the 2nd floor of a complex, this is an absolutely superb place to stay for a fraction of what other centrally located hotels demand. The rooms are spaces and clean, and complementary drinks and snacks... More

Very well-located, amazing price for an accommodation in the center of Rome. Very quiet despite the fact that it is next to the one of the main streets in Rome. very friendly and helpful host who gave us lots of useful information. Highly recommended

Characterful and centrally located (but very quiet for a peaceful nigh sleep). If you are a keen walker you can walk to all major Rome attractions within an hour. The hotel manager was supremely helpful to us, arranged a taxi for a late-night arrival and spent considerable time guiding us how to use our limited time. The hotel is also... More

I feel sorry for the friendly staff at Matisse, reading some of the negative reviews. Of course, breakfast is not served. But it´s available for 24 hours. Not all rooms have en-suite bathrooms, but that has to be cleared beforehand. I have been there 5 times in 5 years and I just love that place and the manager Roberto. Right,... More

We booked this 'hotel' thinking we would have an ensuite bathroom, have a kettle in our room and have a good breakfast served in the morning. However, we discovered that the truth was far from the website's description of the 'hotel'. First of all, we had to wait for the manager to arrive as he was busy somewhere else (unreliable... 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.
