          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

          Hi planning to book the Best Western Plus Universo and have a few questions would appreciate your help! 1. Does the hotel have available hairdryers to use/rent/request? (not the wall kind) 2. What is the size of the standard rooms (they look tiny in the pictures) 3. Do all the rooms have a window or balcony?
