The Space

Large , spacious,sunny room in the center of Rome in an historical building .
High cealing ,wide and high window, nicely furnished. Astonishing view of the Basilica of San Giovanni in Laterano and the Scala Santa .
Kitchen fully equipped and nice balcony where you can enjoy a cup of coffe smelling and seeing nice flowers and plants.
The flat is on the forth floor with lift and is equipped for people with handicap .
10 minuts walking distance to the Coloseum and the Foro Romano and lots of other interesting monuments.
The area is very green having the Parco del Colle Oppio , the Parco del Celio and Villa Celimontana very close .
The area is full of services, shops ,cafe' restaurants ,markets of all sorts.
The metro to the Spanish Steps and the northern part of the city is less than 5 minuts walking distance from the flat,lots of buses are right in front of the building .
You can reach Piazza Venezia and Piazza Navona walking enjoying an incredible walk in the hearth of Rome .

From the Fiumicino or Ciampino Ariport :

From Termini :
Metro A till Manzoni Stop then 3 minuts walking distance or Taxi ( circa 10 euros )

Metro stop is MANZONI
Bus stop is either Via MERULANA or P.ZZA SAN GIOVANNI with buses Nr. 87/571/81/85

Please mind that a for check in after 10PM or in Feast's Day ( Christmas ,New year's eve , Easter etc.) there is an extra fee of 15 (website hidden) SINCE A LOT OF PEOPLE ASK MANY TIMES QUESTIONS WICH ARE ALREADY SPECIFIED ON THE ADD ,PLEASE DO READ THE ADD PROPERLY . I WON'T ANSWER QUESTIONS IF ALREADY IN THE ADD .

Guest Access

Please consider that I rent the room with use of kitchen and bathroom and those are the only common spaces we share . Thanks

Interaction with Guests

I like to make guests feeling at home , but please do consider I have to work too . Sometimes I am not there since I often am at work around Europe .

The Neighborhood

The area is really great , full of every shop you can think of , full of art ( churches,(website hidden),old buildings etc.) ,green areas , Coloseum is only 10 minutes walking distance , Foro Romano as well .
There is everything you need , even an hospital on the corner .

Getting around

There are plenty of buses , underground or taxi

Other Things to Note

Please do consider that if you do not switch off light , air conditioning's system , heating , washing machine or dishwasher you will be charged 10 euros for each time you leave them on . Electricity costs a lot in Italy and since using airbnb I got very high fee because of people leaving things on for entire nights or days or even as they left while I was not in Rome . Thanks for your comprehension .

  • I love to stay in barbaras apartment, i didn't meet her, but i meet her neighbor that show me the apartment and was a friendly person
    The apartment it's just like the photos, the view is surreal, at night it get's better...i have breakfast, all i need was there, even books with the history of Rome and dictionaries of Italian. It really blew my mind.
    Certainly If i go to Rome again I will be on Barbara's Apartment.

  • Fantastic adress. Waking up and seing the Lateran Church without even leaving the bed! Perfect facilities and very friendly and helpful host. Everything within walking distance or with a Little help from the nearby metro. Highly recommended.

Its very conveniently located and a very safe neighborhood. Barbara is a great host - friendly, accommodating and helpful. I'd highly recommend her place for a memorable visit to Rome.

  • This place seriously blew away my expectations. The apartment is gorgeous-- bright, spacious, stylishly appointed-- and the view is absolutely spectacular. The Basilica di San Giovanni in Laterano is literally across the street, and there's what looks to be a portion of an ancient aqueduct right outside the living room balcony. The kitchen is well appointed; Barbara left me with some cereal and milk which was great. For some reason I arrived under the impression that I would be sharing the apartment with strangers but this place is a 1 bedroom so I had it all to myself. If you want to escape from the bustle of the city, you can retreat to the verdant balcony off the kitchen that looks down on the building's courtyard. A note of caution: if you are very noise-sensitive, be warned that you can hear road noise faintly at night, but it is by no means loud. There must be a hospital nearby because ambulances could often be heard (mostly during the day) traversing the large street below.

    Location is excellent. Colosseum is a close 10-15 min walk and the city center is about 25-30 min. Multiple buses stop at the huge intersection outside the apartment. I always felt safe returning at night. In short, I HIGHLY recommend!

  • Barbara's place just across San Giovanni in Laterano (make sure you visit the basilica) is a superb place to stay in Rome. You will get a large, bright room overlooking the church, comfortable bed, desk, chairs, lots of space to store your clothes and whatnot. But the best of all is Barbara herself, a wonderful, polite, generous person who makes you feel right at home form the moment you step inside. I could not thank her enough for the hospitality she has shown.

  • This is a lovely room in a lovely apartment. Barbara is a delightful host and made me most welcome. The view from the room is magnificent and the the apartment is well situated for easy travel around the city. I would definitely choose to return to Via Fontana Domenico if I return to Rome. My first experience of airb&b could not have been more positive. Many thanks Barbara.
