Not sure what to expect but turned out to be an inspired choice. The place is very well located within an easy walk of the Station and attractions such as Trevi and the Pantheon. The Australian breakfast is outstanding and recommended. Why not 5 stars - room is a little compact and the fittings are a little loose. Would highly...

Located a 10 minute walk from the main Termini station and literally 15-20 minutes walk to all of the popular tourist sights, which was perfect for us as we don't mind walking and certainly got to see more of Rome and it's streets than travelling on the Metro. Very Clean. comfortable and large room (we had a superior), which over...

It's, to say the least, upsetting that Domus Australia, the home from home from home for Australian Catholics, is also popular with those who describe themselves as "myself and partner" and have no knowledge of grammar or syntax and have never heard of a paragraph.

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.
