If you are looking for your “Home away Home” La Bella Sosta is the right place for you to stay!
Our 85 sqm apartment - located in a typical historical building - will make you feel like at your home.

The Space

Very far from the aseptic environment of a hotel, La Bella Sosta apartment has been entirely renovated and refurbished with early '900 furniture in order to keep the familiar warmth of a typical Roman house.
Located in the Rione Esquilino, our flat is very near to Termini Railway station (10 minute walk).
All main historical spots, such as Coliseum, Piazza Venezia, Via Veneto, Villa Borghese can be easily reached either by walking or by public transportation.
In our two bedrooms we can accommodate up to 5 (five) people. Sunny and clean, they include 2 king size beds and a sofa bed (which can be unfold and turns into a real bed), a wardrobe, a small table to savour and enjoy your Italian breakfasts, TV, air conditioning and internet access.
Two pretty bathrooms with shower - decorated with the typical Vietri tiles (Southern Italy) - a common area and a fully equipped kitchen (with dish-washer, oven, kettle and toaster) complete the apartment. Washing machine, iron and iron table are available for the guests to use.
Towels and linen are provided.

"Welcome Breakfast Kit" or "Welcome Pasta Kit for our guest"!

IMPORTANT! - The shown rates do not include the Tourist Tax (2 euros per day per person) and cleaning service, which anyhow the guest can request and pay separately . Cleaning service at the end of the stay is at guest's expense and it amounts to Euro 50, to pay directly to the housekeeper

We also provide the following services:
1) pick up services from/to Fiumicino and Ciampino at the very competitive rate of Euro 50 for 5 people (including luggages).
2) different Rome tours with skilled guides – very peculiar is the bike tour to enjoy the downtown - as well as
3) personal shopping service

Our aim is to make your stay memorable in our city and we will do our best to succeed and manage all your requirements!

Getting around

- Just in front of the building several bus stops direct to Historical Centre and Vatican
- Metro A and B Stops at 5 minunte walk

  • Great stay for a week in Rome! We were 3 sisters and good we had 2 bathrooms. Really nice neighborhood: coffee places downstairs over the street, good Italian restaurants right over the corner, some eve you maybe lucky to hear accordion play for dinner, also a nice Italian grocery where you can get a great selection of cheeses, cured meats, wine, bakery also fresh from oven at midnight! Many sights are walking distance close and if you want to reach further easy access to everything!

  • We had a wonderful stay in this apartment! The apartment was big, clean and very comfortable for our family of five. Our great host prepared the apartment with everything you could need. We could not have asked for a better place to stay in Rome. Thank you for making your apartment available to us!

  • Simona was an excellent hostess! thanks for all your help. We got lost on the way to Rome and Simona was very helpful and responsive to the changes in our schedule, thanks for that!. This apartment is very spacious and has plenty of windows with nice views and plenty of sunlight. The decor is a bit old and the layout a bit impractical, but it's a great and comfortable place to stay in Rome if you're looking for open spaces, plenty of light, location close to the center. It has two very spacious bedrooms and a very nice living/dining room.

  • 숙소는 매우 깨끗하고 편했어요. 우리는 5명의 가족이라 공항에서 픽업 서비스를 받았는데 (50유로) 매우 편하고 좋았어요. 사람수와는 관계없고 큰 택시가 와요. 운전수 아저씨가 공항에서 마중도 해주고요 .
    첫날은 집을 찾기도 어렵고 피곤하니 가능하다면 픽업 서비스를 받는 것도 좋을 듯 해요 ^^
    또 간단한 음식을 해먹을 수 있는 식기는 물론 조미료 등의 식자재도 있어서 간단한 이탈리아 요리도 해먹을 수 있어서 색다른 경험이었어요. 혹시 가신다면 라면 등 간단한 음식을 한국에서 가져가도 좋을 듯해요. 룸은 넓고 쾌적해서 있는 동안 마치 우리집처럼 좋았어요. 화장실도 2개라 저희처럼 가족이 머물거나 두 커플이 머물러도 좋을 것 같아요. 주인 시모나는 엄마처럼 여러모로 챙겨주고 여행전이나 머물면서도 메세지를 주고 받았어요. 다만 떼르미니 역에서는 조금 먼데 우리는 그래도 걸어서 다녔어요.
