Average experience overall. Room was ok...very dark with hardly any window light. Aircon didn’t work properly and hairdryer didn’t work. If it wasn’t for the friendly staff this would definitely be a 1 star. Rooms desperately need a facelift!

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
