I have been to rome many times and stayed at many small hotels. The location is good, but not much else. I was supposed to get a double room with bath, instead they tried to give me a twin room with a hall bath. Sorry no. Had to fight for the proper room, the got it. "Breakfast" is tea or... More

Having read the reviews from other people on trip advisor I would agree. This is a great bargain hotel for a short trip to Rome. When we arrived at Termini station we walked past the cheap tat shops and lots of shabby hotels and didn't feel overjoyed but the street that it's on is lovely and is very close to... More

On Via Carlo Alberto, 50 mtrs from badilica of S. Maria Maggiore, a place where you find yourself at home, gentle staff, silent rooms, inner court and even art pieces at the lobby's walls. Owned by international expats, clean, all no smoking rooms, average cont'l Bfast, reasonable room price. Ar reception experienced collaborative staff.

Clean comfortable and close to termini. It is difficult to find, there is no signage.....you're looking for a large wooden door next to the bar and opposite the Montreal hotel. Press the button next to the name, they'll release the lock from reception...at the top of the stairs is reception. Staff helpful. Our belongings were safe while we were out... More

Nice hotel in a good location, staff friendly and willing to help. We asked to change rooms as the one we had was a bit noisy as on the Main Street, and was swapped to a room which opens onto the courtyard. The extractor fan in our bathroom didn't work so there was a bit of a smell in there... More

The staff are friendly and helpful. The location is fantastic, 5 mins walk from termini and only 15 mins walk to the colosseum and other attractions. Our room was clean and tidied everyday. It was an absolute bargain and I would recommend to anyone for a pleasant budget stay.

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.
