The location was fantastic-it was in the centre of Rome and very easy to get everywhere by foot or public transit. The room was clean and facilities were also modern/clean. Nice atmosphere and nice staff. Rooms felt secure.

It's my first time as solo traveler, glad I get a smart choice! Great location-just 5 mins walk from Roma Termini and airport shuttle bus, and Rome Termini has a supermarket which easier to get what you need. Staff are very nice and friendly too, the bed are very clean and with lockers for your backpacks. I also like they...

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.
