I was welcomed by a very nice young man, who was not italian, of course... The building is very old but it is in an area with access to almost everything. Very close to Termini Station. The rooms are small. The telephone was broken. The main problem is that the building is residential and commercial and the dwellers do not...

We arrived around midnight, beginning of Feb, with 0 degrees C outside... as well as inside! The window of a non-heated room was wide open, to get rid of the smell of the sigarette smoke! No additional blankets, and when concierge brought the heater, it cut off the lights on the whole floor, so he took it away and we...

The hotel is situated in building with other B&B's but it's close to Termini station and subway (10mins walk). So that;'s the first plus. Staff speaks English,well at least half of them..Reception is open 24hrs, which I take as a big plus! Room was cosy & clean but a bit small. Modern and new. Bathroom was in excellent condition even...

We stayed at Brando & Gio for the last three nights of our 50 day trip. We stayed in lots of hotels, most were better than this one. The staff was indifferent, I don't know if it was because they were rude, or just didn't understand English. Answers to our questions were short and curt. We had contact with them...

My partner I I booked this hotel 9 months in advance for our stay of 1 night. Three months after the booking was made, we received an email advising our booking was cancelled and no explanation provided. We immediately sent an email asking why, and a response was received some days later advising a mistake was made with our name...

The room was clean and tidy with the added bonus of an in room safe. Bathroom was tiny, but clean and sufficient. I would definitely recommend this for the budget conscious traveller. Good location close to the train station.

Plenty of space with a comfy queen bed for me and a single for my travelling partner. Clean and air conditioned room, which was great as it was VERY hot! It looked like our room may have been recently refurbished. A tiny lift (that worked well). Ideally situated near Termini and walkable to some tourist spots. Good restaurants and bars...

I stayed at this hotel at the beginning and end of my time in Italy. It is located close to Roma Termini station which is great for travelling beyond Rome but it is a fair walking distance to all the other tourist sights. When I arrived the first time I was lead to a room which already had someone elses...

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.
