I decided to stayed here because of the good reviews i read on trip advisor and i was not disapointed. When myself and my boyfriend arrived we were greeted by a friendly receptionist who put us in the apartments instead of the room we had booked, but we were delighted when we saw it. The appartment was spacious, bright and... More

Again, I found the reviews of this hotel very positive and decided to book. The hotel makes a fairly good impression as the facade and lobby area are well renovated; the staff were pleasant and helpful and assisted where possible. The advertised wi-fi wasn't included but luckily for us we ended up doing a fair bit of research before reaching... More

We spent 3days and 2 nights at the Mecenate. We had a room in the "Executive Wing" which once you are inside may be but involved entering through a dirty door surrounded by scaffolding then a flight of about 30 stairs to get to a locked door into the Wing. Our room was very nice, spacious, modernised though old fashioned... More

We spent one night at the hotel. Booked a family room which was really spacious with a large bathroom. Staff really helpful- providing maps and good information. Also spoke excellent English. Breakfast continental with a good choice of fruit ( including fresh and tinned), selection of cheeses and meats, cereal, yoghurts, breads and pastries. Very good value for money.

To celebrate our 35th anniversary we decided to take the dream trip we'd always wanted. We checked out hotel reviews here on Trip Advisor and decided on Mecenate Palace. It is a beautiful place and is well located for sightseeing. Our guide said he has had many clients recently who stayed there. Our room was tiny but ok for 2... More

My wife and I travelled to Rome In July and stayed at this hotel. We were in Room 423 with an amazing view of the piazza and Santa Maria Maggiore.

I've put that in the title because it was my main concern before coming to Rome. It's a beautiful city, but man does it have some issues with graffiti. Every single unprotected surface is covered with the stuff, so thanks, delinquents. Anyway, onto the hotel. No graffiti on the walls (so they must clean it off regularly!), great location opposite...

This hotel was overbooked when we got there, despite having a reservation and having already paid for three nights. They put us up in a supposedly comparable hotel down the street that was in no way equal. It was rated three stars to Mecenate's four stars on trip advisor and the room was dark with little view, surrounded by street... More

Staying in Esquilino

Neighbourhood Profile
Esquilino
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.
