Our stay at The Artists. It was a nice time in the end of November. Although period was not encouraged to explore Rome, we prefer that time, when there is no crowds, where you can leisurely walk through this beautiful city. Especially when you have a possibility to use such a wonderful starting point as Des Artistes! Our selection of...

The best thing about the hotel is that it is very close to the city center and especially to Roma Termini (at about 10 minutes of walking) from where you can reach any point of Rome very fastly. The staff is very friendly and they speak very good English. Besides, they offer free luggage keeping service which is very comfortable...

Had a 7-day stay in Oct, 2016. Though a bit of a walk from Termini train station (about 10 minutes, lugging a roller bag), it's pretty convenient for accessing all we wanted to do in touring the city. Metro line just behind hotel, so access to Rome's very limited Metro system was very easy. 4th floor room (accessible via lift...

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.
