Hotel Lella is fantastic! Ali in the reception is highly cooperative if you are gentle towards him. He can make your stay way better from that what you were first expecting. Any problem, inside or outside, he can deal with it ;) We didn't try the breakfast because we were allowed to sleep so long, but the hotel's position is...

lella was a big disappointment for us. it has at least two parts, i think there's a big difference between them. we had a four bedded room with the cheapest, oldest beds. my "pillow" was a folded old blanket. the bathroom has no window or any ventillation, so it is black from mildew. there's no mop, chair or peg for...

If you are looking for a nice hostel, with Wifi, a good atmosphere and with a nice worm welcoming staff that cares about you more than about your money, than go to a different place. I reserved two night's but had to leave Rome one day earlier. When I arrived, I asked the hotel (which for some reason is written...

There are NO Amenities. It cannot be called a hotel. It is not a standalone place, it is part of a residential building that houses other entities. Maybe it should be renamed to a guesthouse, at most. The WiFi works only in the tiny "lobby" which is a room in a former apartment. The elevator is truly ancient and is...

I have never been so offended by a hotel like I was with Hotel Lella. They make you pay up front because they know once you see the room you will run for the door. First of all, the hotel is a hallway, nothing more. Their version of cleaning our room was taking out the clothes of whoever was living...

This is the worst place I have ever stayed- bar none. We were booked for 3 nights at another hotel, checked in there and were escorted a block and a half down the street to this crummy hotel. This should have been our first clue, but we went along. The room was musty, walls were filthy and in a state...

We choose this hotel because of a recent renovation, as they told us. Arrived at the "hotel" we understood this was a place to avoid. The room was full of buggs and the walls were covered with moisture. The breakfast served in the room is in fact a plastic plate wich you find at your door in the morning: a...

I spent my last night in Rome here because my sister was in town and staying at the same hotel, and I needed an inexpensive room since i'd be leaving at 3:00 am the next day for an early flight and the last place I was staying was booked that night. The room was awful... not even worth the 40...

We booked Lella because we read good things about it on Hostelworld and for its proximity to the station as we were arriving late at night after a 12 hours flight. We were looking forward to a hot shower and nice bed. We are not fussy people but what we were confronted with at Lella took us aback. The bathroom...

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.
