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...

Stayed Oct 2008 for a couple nights. Close to train station and subway but far enough away from city center to be reasonable priced. We look for simple, clean, quiet, safe places to sleep. We don't spend much too much time in the room so why pay for a hotel with other amenities? We will be back :)

My Partner and I stayed at Mr. Frills last Summer and it was an absolutely brilliant experience. When we first arrived it was late at night and all the shutters around were closed (lots of Graffiti) and admittedly we were a bit worried. But once we had met the lovely owner of this apartment and had a great night sleep,...

It was nice to be in a neighborhood that wasn't too touristee, and in an apartment building with Romans. The area has lots of ethnic shops and restaurants which was fun too. I loved the balcony overlooking the square across the street. The B&B is very clean. The kitchen and common area are comfortable and it was great to have...

Mr Frills is a really good B&B for those who want privacy. We had a very warm welcome from our host Giampierro, who gave us a tour and lots of suggestions of things to do and places to go in Rome, but then we were left to it. The staff aren't on site 24/7 - Giampierro is there to check...

This B&B was chosen for a couple for independent travel to Rome. Location is great - 10-15 minutes from Roma Termini railway, where you can catch a train to the airport. Three subway station are nearby, local market as well. The B&B is good for walking routes to the centre of Rome. The only disadvantage - dirty surroundings (as usual...

Everything about this place was fantastic. Giampino was so helpful and friendly. I stayed in the room with the original mosaic floor and ate breakfast on the balcony every day. The refrigerator was well stocked with food and you could have cookies and cake whenever your heart desired. It was very clean too. Very close to termini and the metro....

Mr Frills is a great base for the independent traveler in Rome. It's very well located- on the metro and walking distance to many of Rome's top attractions. Set in an unmarked residential location overlooking a green square- we did not find it difficult to locate and we had the mobile number of the owner (Giampierro) in case something we...

Due to some bad luck with the airlines losing our bags, we were forced to try and find this place at night. To add to our bad luck...there was a TON of construction going on, so most of the street signs were not visible which made it difficult to follow the directions they B&B provided. Additionally, there was construction around...

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.
