Basic breakfast of croissant yogurt and drink. Went out early after breakfast but the staff are very rarely in they give you keys to get in and out. No emergency numbers in... More

It was nice staying here. The "hotel" is very close to metro and termini station. Also a few staps to coloseum and forum romanum. Room is very small but it is enough if you just stay there for the night-leaving in the morning and coming back in night. Staff is very helpful altough we met them only during check in/out,... More

Rooms are fine to stay for few nights with a affordable budget. The service is bad the breakfast is generally a coffee/ tea with a croissant. In our case we Got old ones with bacteria on it. No wifi. We recommend if you really don't have any other options, On and the building is really quite old :(

I've stayed at this place 6 times, and it has been great each time. The receptionists are very friendly and helpful and the rooms are clean. Don't expect a4 star hotel when you book here, but for its price, this is a very good place to stay (both hotel and hostel). I would recommend to stay at the hotel though... More

We stayed here for just one night but it was awful! The hostel is not near the center of anything, not even the train station. I know in the map it looks close but you have to walk a lot! The neighborhood was not very nice, just a bunch of asian cloth stores, not a lot of restaurants. Then there... More

I dont even know where to start with this hostel. First of all the stairs.. its like five floors worth the stairs, so if you have any kind of problem or heavy luggage, avoid it.

Stayed here with my girlfriend during September for 5 nights, although the place was close to Termini and was not too expensive I would not stay there again. We had to pay in Cash, which when you are on a budget is not good, as we were planning on paying for all our hotels on our credit card. The room... 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.
