It's a really nice ho(s)tel! Really close to the Colosseum! Had a lovely breakfast, even though we didn't order it. Our room was with a nice view, it was spacious enough and the beds were incredibly comfortable! Also, really cheap. Would definitely stay there again.

We walk in Rome, so location & a park the car for a couple of days is key. Sole e Luna is easy for both the above, clean, spacious & has a great front desk service. For its price, it's super easy to move w the locals, access city transport, eat well and return to rest comfortably w'out hotel fuss.... More

We spent a week in Rome and we can definitely recommend this place to those who like sightseeing-it it very close to Colosseum and Santa Maria Maggiore.It is also convenient to get there from central train station Termini.You can easily reach other attractions because metro is just around the corner.The stuff is helpful and friendly.One minus is that when you...

After a long trip, we arrived to the staff saying our reservation was for the next day. I showed my confirmation. She apologized, but of course there were no rooms available. We were told they would put us in another... More

Sole e Luna has got two main advantages - the great location, and the helpfulness of the staff, which was always prepared to change the time of breakfast, brought directly to our room (you choose between several sweet possibilities - from croissant to yoghurt) and ready to print for us what we needed from the computer at the reception desk....

The room was clean, with a view to the main street and close to Colosseum. It had a great WiFi signal, a small safe to put your passports, wallets, keys. The room also included a private bathroom.

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.
