We booked this guest house for a 3 night stay in rome, italy and have to say that we were not disappointed, the guest house was small with only about 4 or 5 rooms, it was very clean and tidy and located a short walk from the attractions, the rooms were cleaned daily and you could come and go as...

Close to Coliseum and Manzoni station (two stops from Termini) but that's the only pro. The bed was OK, bathroom was very small. They will change your towels but for a fee. They charge for tax and breakfast, and the breakfast consists of pastries, orange juice, cereal, tea & coffee.

We stayed at the San Juoan Guest house for 3 nights in July. We were pleasantly surprised with how modern the suites were; also very clean and spacious. Nestor and Stephanie were helpful with any questions or requests we had. The location was great because it was walking distance to the Colosseum and Arcibasilica di San Giovanni in Laterano. We...

The hotel is very close to manzoni metro station, bus and tram station. The neighborhood is very quiet with a supermarket very close. You can walk to Colosseum area...just 10 min and this is great for nights. I stayed in room 1 for 3 days, i went to Firenze and then come back for another 3 days and stayed in...

Stayed here for 3 nights during a heat wave in July. The bed was hard and slopped to the middle. Fine for one person I'm sure but not for two. The a/c would make weird loud noises at night (you'll wake up). The TV is rubbish. Most channels don't work. Almost impossible to find an English Channel for news (Greece...

We stayed here for 7 nights and on arrival we couldn't get in through the gate, we rang the buzzer a number of times with no answer. When we finally got inside and approached a man in a little office, he didn't greet us in a friendly way at all. He gave us a map of the city and showed...

San Jouan is in a great place, out of the hussle and bussle in a little courtyard, yet the furthest things are less than an hours walk away. The rooms are quite small but that's not really an issue as you'll spend most time sightseeing, and there is a lovely little patio area with tables and chairs out the front....

This B&B offers great value for money in a nice residential area (visited off peak) We were within 10 mins walking distance to the Roman Forum and the Colosseum, the neighbourhood surrounding the B&B towards the Forum offers some great restaurants. The Manzoni tube stop is very close and tickets are really cheap (6 euro for 24hr unlimited travel) The...

€29. that's how much this cost me- I was almost put off as it was so cheap! Don't be- it is fantastic. Having seen suggestions on TA to request room 4, we did- and that's what we got.

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.
