It is a very small single floor 3-4 rooms hotel?. plus point - it is VERY clean. Make sure to come with location map. All buildings are looking same and no body in the area knows the hotel. There are no signboards even. Only a small sign-card along with calling bell. As the staff is not always at hotel, inform... More

This was an amazing place for the price we paid! 2 minutes walk from Termini station made it very easy for us to move around Rome via public transportation. The room itself was pretty roomy. Nice, friendly reception staff. Simple, free breakfast from a cafe around the corner (Croissant and coffee). Room and bathrooms were clean. I was a little... More

For the price we paid, it was absolutely a good place to stay. It ´s near to the Termini main Station (also the Metro Station with connection to many lines in Rome), so it is really convenient to travel around. Collosseo and other spots are about 15 Min on foot. Around the area there are also some nice coffee. The... More

Great little B&B right in the centre. Friendly helpful people who runs this. Nice little breakfast place. All good. Pretty noisey though, other guests were showering at 7/8am and if you are a light sleeper it will wake you. The street outside is also noisey with roadworks from early on!

The When In Rome is a clean, bright, friendly hotel that is very reasonably priced for a hotel just 2mins walk from Termini Station. However, upon check-in (once I had paid) I was informed that they were repainting our room and we would be moved to a hotel 'just around the corner' for the second part of our stay. The... More

When in Rome is a special place: in a city of expensive hotels, you'll get everything you need for an affordable price. The rooms are clean, bathroom is clean and relatively spacious. The beds are good enough and the airco works like a charm (very important in summer in Rome). Our room even included a balcony with views of the... More

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.
