A friend recommended Frank's House, and we were not disappointed in out stay. It is very conveniently located near the train train station and metro stop. It is within walking distance of the Colissuem and other sites. There are many restaurants in the neighborhood as well as a wonderful gelato shop. There is also a farmer's market a block away...

This was our best stay in the 4 places we roomed in Italy. It was newly remodeled and clean. The windows were even double pane for even more quiet. The location was close to the subway, restaurants and a grocery store. And the best Gelato ice cream store was a few blocks away where we indulged at least once a...

My husband and I stayed here for our first two nights in Italy. It is in a great location, very close to the train station and metro. It's about a 15 - 20 minute walk to the colosseum. I highly recommend going to Luzzi restaurant which is 5 minutes from the colosseum. Go at night time it is beautiful! One...

As a second experience, I was even more impressed at Frank's hospitality, his attention to detail, and the comfort associated with my time there! I plan to make Frank's House a home-from-home experience whenever I am in Rome, whether for work or play.

I came down for the weekend with my friend from Florence. The location is very convenient because it's very close to the main train station Termini and it is also close to the Metro.

Staying in Esquilino

Neighbourhood Profile
Old school vibe from the very beginning is the only way to describe the Esquilino neighbourhood. 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 neighbourhood 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 centre. Liberty architecture, large piazzas, and long boulevards mix with archaic arches, secret side alleys, and beautiful churches like Santa Maria Maggiore.
