We booked a double room. Easy walking distance from the train station and we were welcomed after our long haul flight in the laundromat come Internet cafe check in point. We were given a map and tips on catching public transport and places to eat. Our room was two buildings up from this and we had keys to access it...

My son and I stayed here, and had a great experience. We booked a twin room (two single beds), with private bath and shower (there are other options available, including more hostel-esque accommodations with shared rooms and bathroom facilities). Our room was clean and comfortable, with air conditioning that maintained a comfortable temperature in the heat of Rome in August....

We were initially taken aback by the check in area. It was a small laundry shop. However, the moment we entered, the owner welcomed us very pleasantly and began to offer us tips on how to get around and places to visit. This really helped out with our planning. We were also given a bottle of wine and an upgrade...

I spent a week in Rome staying at Funny Palace and was really happy with my time at the hostel, and of course in the city! The team; Eric, Mabri and everyone else were really accommodating and helpful! :) I was actually meant to change room several times as I was staying there 7 nights, but Eric kindly arranged it...

A rock solid hostel in a very central part of Rome right near the main train station which give easy access to the airport, the metro and buses all over the city. The highlight for me was the large wooden doors at the entrance; such a stately feel. The staff were incredibly helpful and did everything they could to help...

The staff was amazing! The guy stayed late because our flight was delayed and we couldn't get in until 11. He was very understanding and even told us some cool shortcuts for the city. A complimentary wine and free breakfast. The breakfast is amazing and really nice. My friends and I split a 5 person room and were amazed at...

My two friends and I stayed at the Funny Palace for 2 nights. The hostel is near the train station, and within close proximity of several restaurants. Our room was upgraded, we were given towels, and a bottle of wine, all free of charge. Within moments of arriving we were briefed of the entire city with a map, color coated...

The rooms were comfortable , it was a little odd at the beginning since the check in is in a laundromat and the rooms 1 block from there, not sure where the other rooms were. Once we were in our room we felt comfortable. The location was fine, there were some good places for eating. Termini is not a beautiful...

Staying in Esquilino

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.
