My daughter had booked our trip to Italy and had chosen all B&Bs for our 2 week stay. I was a bit worried but for no reason at all. The Merulana Inn was perfect for us. We had our own bathroom (just a little downside though, it only had half a door and every shower flooded the bathroom floor), didn't... More

This is an unusual spot, as it's not a hotel, but a residence that takes up only one floor of the building it's in. Note that there are a handful of steps once you're in the ground floor main door, so I'm not sure this place is accessible. The rooms are attractive, very clean and the bathrooms are excellent, apart... More

Firstly, this place is in a great location! Walking distance from the train station, major attractions, supermarket and hop-on-hop-off bus stop. However, I didn't realise when I booked that it is a guest house. Yes, I checked the reviews but it still wasn't clear. We arrived at approx. 3:30pm after having difficulty finding the place as there is only a... More

Pros - Great location (10min walk from Termini) and close to the underground - Good room, fairly modern and clean, free internet. - Well priced Cons - Shower would go from cold/warm to scalding hot without warning. Was like this for the whole stay. Major drawback. - Breakfast pretty terrible and very limited. Coffee was undrinkable. Didn't bother with breakfast... More

This review is LONG overdue, but I'll start off saying the woman who runs this inn is very sweet and helpful, considering she doesn't speak much English (and we still had a great time trying to converse with her!). However with that said, I think travelers should know this is more like a guesthouse than an inn or hotel. Someone... More

The location of the Inn was a little awkward to find initially as there wasn't really a clear indication of its location physically (e.g. A sign) but the place itself was well located in Rome. The lady to greet us wasn't the friendliest of characters as to say The room itself was very well constructed and layed out. The beds... More

We've got a good deal on this hotel. It is clean and all the main attraction are within walking distance and very close to the train station. The breakfast was nothing spectacular but it filled us up for the day. The wireless worked perfectly. I suggest that you do just a little bit of research on google maps bevor you... More

The location is near Roma Termini for us to rest a night before heading our way to other parts of Italy. The room was clean and newly renovated. It was small but comfortable. No complain at all. The toilet and shower was clean and of a good size with the necessary toiletries provided. Breakfast was the normal Italian fare you... More

We were shocked to see some bad reviews on here. The room was lovely - a comfy bed, an excellent powerful shower, superb location and a great breakfast. I don't know whether some people expect haute cuisine, but for us it was a good way to fill us up for the sightseeing we had ahead of us. It consisted of... More

Stayed there last week and was pleasantly surprised. The manager (forgot her name) was so lovely and helpful, explained everything, gave me a map and directions to places, restaurants, shopping etc and couldn't help enough. She even packed me a breakfast box as I left at 7am the next day. I paid 95 euro for the night and thought the... 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.
