I feel sorry for the friendly staff at Matisse, reading some of the negative reviews. Of course, breakfast is not served. But it´s available for 24 hours. Not all rooms have en-suite bathrooms, but that has to be cleared beforehand. I have been there 5 times in 5 years and I just love that place and the manager Roberto. Right,...

We booked this 'hotel' thinking we would have an ensuite bathroom, have a kettle in our room and have a good breakfast served in the morning. However, we discovered that the truth was far from the website's description of the 'hotel'. First of all, we had to wait for the manager to arrive as he was busy somewhere else (unreliable...

First we didn't get 3 single beds as promised. I had to share a double bed and sheet with daughter. The windows couldn't close so it was cold nights. The bathroom and toilet was separate from the room such didn't say anywhere. And we had to share kitchen and do the dishes after ourselves from breakfast. Not any near what...

Matisse has a sense of old Rome. We didn't spend many nights, but on our short stay we found it to be a good choice. It's large room was very clean. The bed was comfortable and warm at night. The breakfast was more than enough to keep us going many hours on the road. The bathroom was clean with plenty...

Booked a triple room for 2 nights on Expedia. We showed up early, around 10, and asked to leave leave our bags for the day while we visited the sites since it was too early to check in. No problem...until we showed back up at 5 and got the car salesman pitch from another guy about this better room he...

The hotel is located 5 minutes from termini station and a foot walk away from all the main attractions of rome. The staff was nice and our room had very good AC. The "breakfast" is a self service and not very reach.

On our arrival to Matisse b&b we realized that we got a room in a different building, which was tiny and very different than the pictures on the website. Nothing from the roman atmosphere that we expected to get, nothing from the luxury that is being described. During our stay, there was a serious problem with the wifi, with the...

Paid 160 euros for Saturday and Sunday night. 10 minutes walk from termini but far enough away from thieves etc around tremini. Room and facilities excellent for price. Roberto the manager is very friendly and helpful. Clean and quiet room etc. We're over 50 from Australia and think it's a lovely and convenient hotel :)

Great location, reasonable price and great host. There are 3 separate buildings, each of them has public kitchen with 24-hours breakfast (yogurt, milk, water, juce, croissants, cookies, flakes and even wine sometimes), so you get not just a roob, but a kind of apartment with some meal included. Location is absolutely great! It's near to Termini, but locates on a...

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.
