Nice place, nice stay! Cristina (the host) is easy going and always ready to help/cooperate. The place is cosy - there are many small things that give it a final touch) I appreciated a safe in the room and availability of tea /coffee in the kitchen throughout the whole day :)

Mid-week break in Rome and this place was perfect for what we needed. Brilliant location, so close to the colosseum and round the corner from a Metro station with easy access to Vatican City.

This is one of the best places I have ever stayed and it is perfectly located and very well priced. The place is located in a nice area of Rome near San Giovanni, near the subway on the same line to the Vatican and a 15 minute walk to the Coliseum and 25 minutes to all the main attractions.

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Gentes B&B is a few meters away from the second largest Basilica in Rome and a few minutes' walk from the main symbol of Rome, the Colosseum. The hotel is located in the heart of the capital's history: the popular Via Tasso, actually, is the site of the Historical Museum of the Liberation of Italy and even if is in a central position in Rome, is extremely quiet, because it's away from the main streets and protected by the building of the Scala Santa. ... more   less
