Fawlty Towers was to be the first hostel of a two month trip to Europe for myself and a friend. Traveling from Australia, we were nearing forty hours of travel when we arrived in Rome at nearly eleven pm. Tired and out of sorts, we were at least happy in the knowledge that we had a bed waiting our weary... More

Stayed 3 nights (14-16 Jun 2013). The staffs work on shifts and they are very nice, helpful and always willing to give a good service to the guests with wide smile except for one male staff who worked on 15 and 16 Jun night shift who were quite arrogant and not friendly. Hotel is quite old and a bit creepy... More

This was our first trip to Rome was quite apprehensive about hotel location. Upon arrival you have access to a lift to the 5th floor yes it's basic but it worked. When entering the hotel you were greeted always by happy and extremely helpful receptionists, who gave great advice about trips and restaurants to eat at. We paid for the... More

I stayed here on two occasions: 31 March for 3 eves & 5 April for 4 eves. Stayed in Room 18 (single with shared bath) & Room 10 (single with shower), respectively. Although the single with shower was priced a bit higher, it wasn't worth it--less space & less sunlight. I didn't bother asking if my previous room was available.... More

However, having just returned from there on my third stay I can say that have lost any good quality they had in previous visits. I booked 2 double rooms with air-conditioning, wi-fi and shower.

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.

“Stayed on 6th floor in Room 18 (single with shared bath) & Room 10 (single with shower). Although the single with shower was priced a bit higher, it wasn't worth it--less space & less sunlight. If on the 6th floor, sleep with earplugs as the door to the 6th floor slams loudly on its own unless one gently closes it.”
