I was disappointed with this palace/hostel. It is not a hostel, the owner appears to have several rooms in different buildings and calls it a hostel. The rooms each have a bathroom and yes are clean. Breakfast is included - it is a pastry from the cafe and all guests a bottle of free red wine! There are plenty of...

As other reviews have mentioned, this place is hard to find. We went into a building and there was a buzzer with "funny" written on it but no one answered. Turns out check in is in the laundry place next door. The management said we should have gotten an email with instructions but we never did. During check in process...

We were very pleased with our stay at the Funny Palace. The location is nice--a quieter neighborhood, but not too far from the Termini station or the Colosseum. The hosts were very helpful and gave us tips on where to eat and how to get to the sites we had planned to visit. The room was comfortable and clean. The...

Good location in central Rome, rooms in several apartments in probably century old buildings. Close to Termini, walking distance. Breakfast included at a coffee shop close by - a coffee and a croissant/donut.

We booked because it was reasonably priced and conveniently located. The rooms were newly renovated, if a bit sparse. By far, the best part was the staff. I think it might have been the owner/operator, but he was awesome. He sat us down, told us about bus lines, free museum days, and a great gelato place nearby. You could see...

There are definitely different types of travellers and Rome being "touristy" it would be important to find an accomodation that fits you. This one is for those looking for a quiet and peaceful place to sleep next to the Termini which will connect you everywhere. This is not a place for the party-goer types or the getting-drunk types. Check Google...

You get a bed and a shower. The Hostel management is what really made our stay comfortable. Greeted with free towels and a bottle of wine we were very please with the service. Free pastry and a drink is included for breakfast, and you can tell the staff really goes the extra mile to make sure you get the most...

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.
