About this listing
If you want to be in the city center but outside the touristic area, we rent our cozy flat within a typical 1930s building on a quiet pedestrian street, St. John's district!
The apt accommodates 2 to 4 people, it is located on the 4th floor and provides lots of light, high ceilings, beautiful original pavement. We do love design, so we refitted this old but fancy apt with both vintage and DIY pieces from recycled material. The rooms are wide and face an internal green area: it's a most peaceful location to relax as well as to work. There is a small entrance, living room, kitchen, bathroom, bedroom.The living room can be turned into a double bedroom thanks to a comfortable sofa bed (160cm wide). You will also find a tiny balcony where you can take some sun in the morning or have a drink in the evening. The bathroom is equipped with tub, shower and natural light as well. The bedroom is very cozy though: there is a comfortable bed (please note it is 120cm wide) closet, table, and a vintage armchair. If you wish, our well-equipped kitchen is at your disposal to prepare your meals or store your shopping :).
In the flat you will find:
fast wireless connection 24/24
washing machine + soap
speakers with smartphone/tablet plug in the kitchen
central heating - no need to manage!
towels and linen povided
Interaction with Guests
Feel free to ask us anything about your stay in Rome: events, exhibitions, things to do, where to eat etc... we will try to help you with pleasure!
San Giovanni is one of the most ancient areas in Rome. Coliseum, the Aurelian walls, San Giovanni Church, Caracalla thermal baths are few steps away, while the area shows a modern attitude through fascista architecture of the early 20th century. Pigneto and San Lorenzo districts, interesting for their nightlife and multicultural attitude, are near and well connected even at late night.Striving from shopping to culture, there is no end to the nearby opportunities available.
San Giovanni tube station (A line connecting with Termini station, 15 minutes) is 7 minutes walk from here. Bus 628 and 117 connect with the old town even if the coliseum is just 15 minutes walk from here! Both Fiumicino and Ciampino airport are well connected by bus + train or metro + train.
Just a few indications:
Before getting out please remember to close either the windows or the doors of the rooms: in windy days they would slam.
This building is a rather peaceful place: please help us to keep this status avoiding to make noise in the stairs/elevator, especially in late hours.
Smoking is allowed on the balcony only.
We do our best to keep the house clean: please, be careful as you would be in yours!
Cet appartement, meublé avec beaucoup de goût et de personnalité, est simplement génial ! A peine installée, je me suis sentie chez moi.
De plus, le quartier calme de San Giovanni était fort agréable après une journée animée dans le centre de Rome.
Et comme Tina et Andrea sont des hôtes très sympa, j'y retournerai avec beaucoup de plaisir !
Tina and Andrea were great hosts. Everything was organized perfectly.
The neighborhood is quiet and offers a lot of little shops and cafes to enjoy life in Rome. And the nearby Metro stop brings you (nearly) everywhere.
Great stay! Thanks!
Tina and Andrea were very kind and flexible. Although arriving late Tina opened the door for us with a warm and welcoming smile. We felt at home and it was really nice to relax with the tasty welcome wine after traveling. We loved the apartment. It's cosy, spacious and well situated if you want to see the highlights but also want to be able to escape from the very touristy areas from time to time. There is a very nice market just around the corner, perfect to get breakfast and feel a bit like a local :) Thank you very much Tina and Andrea, we had an amazing time!
I really enjoyed my experience in Rome.
Tina and her husband were very kind and helpful. The flat is large and well equipped. There are many interesting gadgets in the room showing the taste of the hosts.
Location is good, not far from the metro station and 2 stops from termini. You can also walk to the colosseum through an almost straight road within 20 minutes.
Hope to come back to Italy again.
La casa di Tina è bellissima! E' esattamente uguale alle foto, super accogliente con ogni confort (in cucina non manca niente, la connessione wifi funziona perfettamente) e l'atmosfera che si respira è quella di "casa"!
Il quartiere è stupendo, pieno di negozi, supermercati, bar,... La fermata della metro San Giovanni si trova a 5 minuti camminando, e cmq il centro è facilmente raggiungibile anche a piedi. La zona è sicura e la strada pedonale in cui si trova l'appartamento è davvero carina.
Tina è gentilissima e sempre disponibile, un host perfetta!
Lo raccomanderei a chiunque!
Tina's apartment was fantastic! It's very spacey and tastefully furnished, with lots of cool details to discover. It's located outside of the touristy area, but just a short walk from the Colosseum and other attractions in Rome. The area is quiet and we felt very safe there. The apartment was clean and communication with Tina was friendly, fast and to the point. Overall hassle-free experience and highly recommendable flat, a true pearl in Rome. We hope to come back here some day :-)
We had a lovely stay in Tina's apartment, which is a lot bigger than it seems in the pictures. It's just outside the tourist area but only a 10 minute walk to the metro station and a 20 minute walk to the Colosseum. Tina was really helpful during the booking and gave us great recommendations on places to eat near the apartment when we got there. Bonus: there is a wonderful bakery and market that sells fresh produce down the street, as well as a store that makes fresh pasta that you can bring back to the apartment to make. Would definitely stay here again!
