Traveling to Rome is the trip of a lifetime. With endless amounts of history, numerous ancient sites and fantastic cuisine, what’s not to love?! If you’re looking to spend less money and get some exercise by walking to the main sights, then staying at Easyrome Guesthouse in the Roma Termini (main train terminal station) is your best bet.
In this article I’ll break down the facilities on offer at Easyrome Guesthouse, the things to do nearby, how to get there, and more.
Location of Easyrome Guesthouse
It’s all about the location in Rome, and lucky for you, this guesthouse is in an excellent spot. The Termini is comprised of different neighbourhoods and areas including Tiburtino and Monti, which are safe and are known for being trendy / artsy areas.
This area is great base for exploring Rome. The main train terminal is just a few minutes away, which is where you can catch public buses and connect to major metrolines into the city.
Rome is a city where basically every street you take is scenic. This, coupled with the fact that you should probably get some exercise after indulging in Roman cuisine, means that the 20 – 30 minute walk into the historical center is an enjoyable one.
From this guesthouse you’ll be a 30 minute walk to the Colosseum, 34 minutes to Piazza Venezia and 14 minutes to the Basilica Papale di Santa Maria Maggiore. Plus, you’re just steps from churches, museums, restaurants and the metroline.
Rooms and Facilities at Easyrome Guesthouse
Spacious, beautiful, bright rooms await you! This is a relief as most hotels and guesthouses in Rome are quite small. Each of the 3 rooms are modern, clean and tastefully decorated. In your room you’ll find a flatscreen TV, a kettle (with tea and coffee) and a private bathroom with some toiletries for you to use. The guesthouse also offers free luggage storage (which is great when you have a late train or flight to catch), WiFi and air-conditioning / heating.
In the main communal area you’ll find some complimentary fruit, and you can enjoy a free breakfast of a croissant and coffee at the nearby cafe (insider tip: When eating breakfast at a cafe, Italians typically stand at the bar, rather than sitting at a table).
As an added bonus, the host Enrico is wonderful. He’ll be there to help you out with anything you need, give you his favourite dining spots, and is on call 24/7 for any problems that may arise.
