This is a true gem. The location is perfect - 2 blocks to the main train and bus station (Termini) and within walking distance of most of Rome's most famous sites! The rooms were renovated in 2005 and spotlessly clean. Even better than all of this is your host, Johanna. She is almost beyond description...so helpful, kind, and fun. Great... More

Look no further. You have to stay here when you are in Rome. Everything about this B&B is perfect. Giovanna is the perfect hostess. Even though she lives in a nearby separate apartment she is never far away and is always on hand to give you advice, food and drink or even a hug! She will bend over backwards for... More

We visited this b&b in late Sept,our first visit to Rome. We had a brilliant time in the city and the b&b Giovy is an excellent place to stay. It's location is ideal as it is close to the centre so you can walk to all the sites, plus it is a safe neighbourhood to return to at night. It... More

B&B Giovy is lovely. It's in a great location, just a few streets away from the Termini so you can easily get to the rest of the city by bus or metro. Giovanna is as friendly and helpful as all of the previous reviews suggest, offering advice on where to go and what to do to get the best out... More

I agree with everyone who's written about how wonderful the welcome is at this little B&B. The rooms were lovely too, and with a super early flight out in the morning, to be just 5 minute walk from the train station was perfect. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone travelling to Rome.

From the outside, the B&B Giovy doesn't look like much, but there is a heart to this place that is hidden! You don't visit Rome for its cleanliness and you don't go to Giovy for the view! It's close to the train station, which makes it very practical, but more importantly the woman who runs the B&B makes your stay... More

Our family of four just returned from 3 weeks in Europe. Rome is so expensive and we found a B&B through Hostelworld that was awesome. B&B Giovy right by the train station and we had one room that slept 4 with a private bath for a very reasonable price. With two young kids most other Rome accoumodations had us renting... More

After two distressing nights at a mediocre, yet horribly overpriced hotel in Rome my travelling companions and I were weary about what me might encounter at B & B Giovy. However, immediately after meeting Giovanna, our trepidation evaporated. This lovely Italian woman came down to meet us in the courtyard of her building and to help with our bags. She... More

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.
