casaraffaela e' un piccolo ma caratteristico appartamento .l'abbiamo sistemato con cura e teniamo molto alla pulizia.
si dorme benissimo perché affaccia nel bel giardino (website hidden) quartiere e' molto vivace,e a due passi dal centro storico.

The Space

la casa ha una grande stanza luminosa ,con letto matrimoniale, armadio ,televisione e divanoletto.
ed un'altra stanza piccolina con un letto singolo.
appena si entra c'e' una zona cucina,all americana,che da su un balcone ,corridoio e bagno.l'appartamento e' perfetto per 2 o 3 adulti,fino a una famiglia di 4 persone.

Guest Access

San Giovanni, a 1,5 km dal Colosseo.
Sempre a pochi minuti potrete trovare altre testimonianze storiche ed architettoniche, come la Domus Aurea la famosa casa di Nerone, la Chiesa di San Clemente, Santa Maria Maggiore ed il Colosseo.
La zona e' circondata da spazi verdi.
Molto vicino si trova il più grande parco naturale di Roma "Il Parco naturale dell'Appia Antica".
Il centro del quartiere e' Piazza dei Re di Roma che nel periodo invernale viene allestita con una pista di pattinaggio sul ghiaccio e le caratteristiche bancarelle di artigianato
La piazza viene tagliata dalla via consolare Appia ,che anticamente collegava Roma a Brindisi.
Il quartiere e' pieno di negozi ed il tratto di Appia che va da Porta San Giovanni all'Alberone e' la via dello shopping dove troverete negozi di tutti i tipi, dall'abbigliamento alle scarpe, dall'elettronica ai casalinghi, fino all'alta moda.
Da vedere e' anche il Mercatino di via Sannio, che si raggiunge in pochi minuti a piedi da Casaraffaela. E' uno storico mercato dell’abbigliamento che nasce negli anni '70,a San Giovanni, esattamente al lato della Basilica di San Giovanni in Laterano. Qui si puo' trovare abbigliamento vintage, articoli da campeggio, da pesca, caccia e abbigliamento militare il tutto a basso prezzo.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We stayed for 3 months in the apartment and it proved to be an excellent choice. The apartment is located in a larger building, at the quiet inside looking out over a small garden. The apartment is very light and sunny (but, of course, the sun can be blocked when it is heating up). The apartment is ideally located just outside the walls, south of San Giovanni. Only a ten min walk from the nearest metro station and five min to a score of bus lines. There is an abundance of little food shops around, including two larger markets and supermarkets. Bars everywhere as well as good restaurants offering Roman food at acceptable prices. The apartment itself is quiet and reasonably well equipped. It can sleep 5 but then it would be somewhat crowded. For a longer stay it is well suited for two people. The host is very friendly and responsive. In short, we loved our stay in Rome and this apartment contributed quite a bit to our positive experience.

  • As the guests we are not disappointed of the flat and the pictures and description are adequate to the reality. The flat is really cosy, clean and well-equiped (the hair-dryer, the iron, or even the washing-up liquid were there).
    The flat is in a good location because of the quiet neighbourhood, and it's close to the public transport and also to the best baked pizzas ever.
    It's worth to add that there is also a mini carrefour market and greengrocer's.
    All in all, the flat is worth to recommend and also to get back.

  • The Apartment was just as described. Comfortable and in a good location. About 7 minutes away from Underground and within walking distance from Restaurants, supermarket and Bars.

  • Great and clean place!! We had literally 1.5 days in Rome and this place was amazing and we walked everywhere!! Great and clean and wasn't to sure about just having a bath tub with out a full shower but was surprised that it really didn't bother us. Will definitely stay here again if we make another stop in Rome.

  • We've stayed here for a three nights, everything was really good. Apartment itself is cosy, comfortable, well equipped. At first I was a little bit disappointed about the location, but later I understood that I could not wish any better, district is really quite, full of lovely restaurants, cafes and stores, absolutely lovely neighborhood. It's far from tourist jam, but you can easily reach everything, cause metro stations in 5 minutes walking, and metro system is really simple to use, even if you don't know the city well.
    Silvia and Solange, the hosts, are really nice people, very friendly and helpful, so I would definitely stay here next time.

  • The flat is in a quiet environment, yet very well-served by transport links, both Metro and bus lines.
    Internet worked flawlessly, hot water was always ready and, which is more, the rooms face a silent courtyard, seal of a good night's sleep :-)
    Overall, we had a nice stay, really :-)

  • We liked the aparment. It has everything for a comfortable stay and was very clean. We can recommend the cab-service, a driver was waiting for us at the airport, and brought us directly to the apartment. Whilst we had to leave early (06.30 departure from the airport) they arranged a cab at 04.30 in the morning, that was already waiting when we left the apartment.

    If you are looking for a center-of-rome location, realise that it's about 1.5 km to the "real" center. We liked this very much, because the neighbourhood is inbetween roman families. Great shops are all within reach. The Pizzeria 2000 serves a great risotto, and the K2 gelateria across the street has the best ice we ever tasted. We visited it daily, and it has set the standard for future ice-consumption!

    One tiny critical point. The wifi-accesspoint in the apartment has a password in lowercase (beware, it is written in uppercase). And the internet-connection doesn't really work very well. Mostly we used mobile internet to fullfill our internet-needs. If this is updated by the owners, it's a 6-star appartment!
