We stayed one night at Mr Frills. The lady who checked us in was friendly and helpful. The location is very convenient as it is only 5min from the Metro station Vittorio Emanuele. Do note that all the exits of Vittorio Emanuele have no elevators and have about 20 steps of stairs. The room was spacious and everything worked. Balcony... More

Location was very bad,and dangerous in the evenings. rooms were dirty and cleaning lady was very rude to us. She was yelling for nothing in her own language and one day she made us clean the kitchen even though we did not use it. Dont choose this B&B.

This place was even better than expected. The location is perfect, an 8 minute walk from Termini station. Lots of good places to eat for all budgets nearby and easy to get to all visitor attractions. There is a metro station next to the apartment. The host who met us (Mr Frills ) was extremely helpful as he gave us... More

The location is okay. Around 10-15 minutes from station. Suitable for budget trip.the room is lean, reasonable price in terms of the room size and with a kitchen that you can serves yourself breakfast, and to cook and enjoy italian coffee there.

We had a great experience at Mr. Frills. I went with 2 friends and stayed for 4 nights. We are all 25-26 so we were looking for a relatively inexpensive place to stay. The triple room we had at Mr. Frills was fantastic. It was clean, comfortable, and had a private bathroom. We even had a balcony with a view... More

Me and my girlfriend went travelling last year and this was one of the stand out places we stayed. Friendly staff, and the room was like a mini flat. We had all the privacy we wanted and it had excellent facilities. Great location too!

Large room, excellent bed, clean and surprisingly comfortable. Very friendly and helpful owner, who gives excellent recommendations for close-by restaurants and places to see. Good location, metro station only 50 m away, walking distance to main station and Colosseum. I would definitively stay there again.

We arrived a day earlier than expected in Rome, and literally chose Mr. Frills while @ the airport making our flight connection. Convenient to Roma Termini, walking distance to major attractions like the Colliseum, Trevi Fountain, the Paladin, Spanish Steps, as well as near the Metro for further areas, it was a great location for a couple with a one-day...

Staying in Esquilino

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
