This accommodation was filthy and smelly. The smell from the mattress on the bed was so strong that it was not possible to sleep. The room smelt of urine, body odours and stale cigarette smoke. I have never had such a bad experience. They take the money from you before you arrive and I didn't see the proprietor for the...

The rooms were so nasty that I gave up staying at them. Its a lie all the show in photos. The location is dangerous and smell like urine, and the room is outside of the address they say the hotel is located

I booked this through booking.com and after seeing the photos online it looked really good value for money. How wrong could I be!! We arrived, there was no reception, you we through the street door into a courtyard with no signs of where to go etc. This man then shouts down "Up here". So up we went and paid the...

I booked the hotel first, then read the reviews and most of them were awful - so had prepared myself for a very bad experience. But when we saw our room, we were pleasantly surprised - not only the room was spacious enough, the washroom was okay, the AC worked fine and the window opened to the street below. Philipo...

Unfortunately the reviews on booking.com, don't seem to be realistic. Wish I had checked tripadvisor before booking with them! It is more like a hostel than a B & B! Windows don't close as there is a loud portable air condition vented outside. No mini fridge, no telephone. Their breakfast consists of a warm to hot juice box and a...

Room and bathroom were clean. Air conditioner works very well. Our complains are about the annoying noise of the doorbell and the door opening, that you can here like it is right next to your ears, you can hear this since 04:30 am. Breakfast was absolutely poor, you will find croissants (4 and very old), 2 little boxes of juice...

We didn't actually live in Via Napoleone. After I paid we were informed that our room is in another building. It wasn't far away fortunately, so the location was still good. Another surprise waiting for us inside was a really terrible bathroom (3 sqm maybe) with toilet under the shower (!) and lots of mold, which was super-disguisting. Toilet seat...

This is a very noisy place. The rooms and washrooms are clean but the place very noisy. I had to leave one day early due to the noise as I did not sleep. When I arrived it was very hard to find and the receptionist was out. I had ot wait 15 minutes before a person came..

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.

“Just don't stay here, yes it is cheap, but in this case you definitely get what you lay for. Not a hotel. Not a B & B. More like a hostel .”
  • Washrooms are cramped. If you are oversized, there is no way you would be able to sit on toilet
  • Showers are dirty.
