The room: 21 m2, painted in yellow and brown. double bed (160x200), internet, wireless, silent at night, nice wardrobe, desk...everything you need at your hand, in a nice and cozy style
The flat: 100 square meters, very bright, central heating, wide kitchen (up to 6 people), bathroom, kitchen, hall, balcony
The area where the flat is located is called Pigneto and is one of the most famous in Rome for former and newer filmmakers, because of its urbanistic and lifestyle.
Just beside the flat, several restaurants, pizzerie and bars are available, and all of the them are much cheaper than in the touristic areas. If you want to walk only 5 than you have a pedestrian area, at 15 minutes even "San Lorenzo" area and so on. All of them have hundreds of places to eat cheaply and even sophisticated, but not pure touristic.
So, in the neighborhood you can find dozens and dozens of restaurants, pubs, all kind of shops and every-everything you will search for at just few steps away. It's very well known as one of the most crowded during the lovely fresh nights in Rome, yet the apartment has on optimal silent location where no one single voice or noise can reach it.
The flat offers you a great combination of both location and comforts. Everything you need is close at hand, the area is safe, the flat both wide and modern. To understand it, just check out the pictures of the flat.
The whole apartment consists of 3 bedrooms, + kitchen, and is the place where do we live.
The bathroom is very bright and spacious with tube, shower and a 2nd sink, for a better comfort.
It is 20 minutes walk away from Colosseum and from historical center; anyway there are plenty of buses and tram just under the apartment. The place is very well connected with Termini/Tiburtina train station as well as Fiumicino and Ciampino airports.
All of the comforts are available, including washing machine, dishwasher, building doorman, high-speed internet and so on.
But what makes this place unique is the warm sense of hospitality that you will feel, from being helped in any need and will you should have, up to have freshly baked cakes and pizza for free while you're staying at our apartment. We really enjoy make people have their best of their stay in Rome!
Full fluency in English, Spanish and French, other languages are anyway very welcome!
Very easy to get to/from the airport and the main train station. From ANY airport (Fiumicino or Ciampino) just get the shuttle up to the main train station named Termini. From there just pick ANY tram and count only 9 stops, as all of the tram stop just in front of my house!
There is no deposit required, nor any other hidden fee or anything else to pay. Just come in and enjoy at the best your stay! We will look after you to give you the very best experience and stay in Rome, with a full support even outside of our house.
You can check in and check out at any time with no extra cost, but please let us know in advance the approximate time of your arrival. Just in case another guest is coming we will ask you to free the room by noon.
If you can see the period you selected as available on airbnb, it means that for that period the room is still free, no confirmation required from my side.
Should you need any special requirement or should you have any question just let me know and I will be happy to assist you in everything!
Pietro is a fantastic and very communicative guy. He really desires making the guests feel comfortable, and achieves it. The house is very comfortable and clean, and the rooms are spacious. The attention of Pietro or of his assistants -Paola and Mohamed - is excellent. They are always ready to orientate the guest according to his needs. A highly advisable experience.
Pietro es un tipo fantástico, muy cálido y comunicativo. Tiene muchas ganas de hacer sentir cómodos a los huéspedes, y lo logra. La casa es muy confortable y limpia, y las habitaciones son espaciosas. La atención del mismo Pietro o de sus ayudantes -Paola y Mohamed- es excelente y están siempre bien dispuestos para orientar al huésped según sus necesidades. Una experiencia altamente recomendable.
This was our first bnb home stay experience and Pietro and Paola have provided to make it very pleasant. They were kind, friendly and very helpful to give us all the information we needed to enjoy our stay. Every morning they prepared for us a wide breakfast, totally free!
The flat is very cozy and cleaned and the room is very large!
The place is ten minutes far from down town and you can easily reach it by bus!
We recommend everyone wants visit Rome, to staying at Pietro's place!
Pietro was amazing host and made me feel like I'm at home. he was also very helpful, gave me bus tickets, maps and even a phone with Internet so I could know easily how to go from place to place. At the last night he and his girlfriend even cooked us amazing Italian dinner.. the apartment was very comfortable and cozy, and even though its not in the most Central place, its really easy to get home with the electric tram. in summary, I really really recommend going to Pitero b&b, he is a great host and will make you feel you are at home..
We very much enjoyed our stay with Pietro! The room is large and nicely decorated, the flat clean with good wifi and super hot water! The check in was relatively smooth (we were greeted by a friend of Pietro's who was doing the welcome routine for the first time. We think she might have forgotten a few details, but provided some great tips on visiting her home town of Naples. Any questions we had were cleared up later, no problem by Pietro). Pietro provides access to a guide book, restaurant and "things to do" recommendations in the area and tips on visiting Rome. He even gave us a SIM card for our use while in the city to help make reservations etc. which are needed for many restaurants in Rome.
The best part of our stay was by far our host! Pietro is not lying when he says he will provide a huge and delicious breakfast each morning! He visited with us every day and was available to answer questions, provide advice and tell us more about life in Rome! He (and his mother who is also great!) is a warm and wonderful host, who is clearly passionate about welcoming guests to his home. The only negative (depending on what you are looking for) to this place would be the location. It is definitely outside the historic core to the city. It is very accessible by transit which takes about 20 minutes to get to the central train station. However it is about a 50-60 minute walk to the area of the colosseum, trevi fountain etc. We did this walk daily and found it easy to navigate but tiring as we also were exploring most of the city on foot. We can also imagine this walk being very hot in the summer months. If you are looking to avoid daily transit costs and have a place you can easily pop into for an afternoon siesta this location might not work so well.
That being said, the fact that this neighbourhood is a bit of a hike from the city's tourist centre is neat because it does provide an experience of a more authentic and local flavour. We also feel that having a host as wonderful as Pietro is worth the extra kms!
The yellow room is the same as it shows in the picture, clean and lovely. Monica who made breakfast is a good talker and we had an interesting chat with each other. It's helpful that you can buy tickets here and that is convenient for strangers. It takes you 20mins to the apt from the railway station by tram 5 or 14, so I think it's not so close to the centre and sight spots, although bus No.81 can take you to most places. That means more time you should spend on the way. Besides, You can easily use the kichen and that is very nice for us.
Our experience with Pietro was really nice! when we got to the place everything was already prepared for me and my wife, we were even given some refreshments and chocolates. After a bit, there was a neatly prepared guide with possible questions, internet details, places to see, a background of the place, markets etc. Lastly we were also given a local sim card with some data to make use in our travels.
All in all we were very happy with our stay with Pietro.
Pietro is not only a lovely person, he is also a great host that provides you loads of useful tricks, maps, information, you name it!
The apartment is nice and clean, we had the most exciting Cappuccino of our lives there and it is a truly recommendable place!
Excellent séjour à Rome, Pietro nous a donné de précieux conseils pour la visite de la ville, la chambre était très agréable. Cuisine excellente! Je recommande!
이번 로마여행은 Pietro의 아파트에서 5박 6일 간 머물렀습니다. 첫 에어비엔비였는데 결과는 대만족이었고요. 일단 방이 2개(저는 그 중 하나의 방을 빌렸죠), 거실(작업실로 사용하는 듯), 부엌, 화장일 이렇게 있는 아파트인데 정말 깨끗하고 인테리어도 아기자기하니 좋아요. 로마에 있는 친구집에 놀러온 것처럼 편하게 지냈어요.
피에트로는 정말 친절해서 도착하자마자 맛있는 파이와 직접 만든 카푸치노를 대접해주었는데 정말 환대받는 기분이 들었어요. 직접 만든 로마 지도도 제공하고 로마여행 루트도 알려주고요. 아침은 무료제공인데 세 가지 종류의 시리얼과 빵과 우유, 과일 등등 집 안에 있는 것은 뭐든 먹을 수 있어요.
아, 룸 같은 경우는 사진이랑 똑같은데 직접 보니 더 마음에 들었어요. 침대도 라텍스라서 잠도 잘 오고 침구도 새로 갈아 깨끗하고요. 쇼파도 편안하고 책상도 넓직하니 좋고... 창가에 라지에이터가 있는데 한 겨울이었지만 방이 정말 따뜻했어요. 교통은 5분 거리 바로 앞에 버스랑 트램 정류장 있는데 거기서 시내까지 한 20분 정도 걸려요. 교통 때문에 어려운 점은 하나도 없었어요. 시내 중심은 아니지만 관광하거나 로마 돌아다니기에 괜찮아요. 트램 정류장 바로 앞에 슈퍼마켓도 있고요. 장 봐서 부엌에서 저녁 직접 해먹어도 됩니다.
피에트로가 직접 동네 아이스크림 가게에 데려가 젤라또도 사주고, 비알레띠 모카포트로 만든 카푸치노 한 3-4번은 족히 얻어먹었던 것 같아요. 특히 한 번은 직접 만든 이탈리아식 디너를 대접해주었는데 생전 처음 버팔로치즈도 먹고 세 가지 종류의 파스타도 먹었어요. 재료비 3~5달러 정도 건네주면 됩니다.^^
피에트로는 정말 친절하고 항상 웃는 좋은 주인장인데 프라이버시도 잘 지켜줍니다. 부엌같은 공동공간에서 마주칠 때 말고 개인공간인 방에 있을 때 부르거나 한 적 한번도 없고 민박주인이 할만한 잔소리(?) 그런 것도 일절 없고요. 하지만 언제나 곁에서 도움이 필요하면 도와준답니다.
아무튼.. 기대반 걱정반으로 에어비엔비 첫 이용 성공했어요. 이 글 보시고 한국분들 비싼 한인민박이나 그리 싸지도 않은데 후진 호텔 가지 마시고 저렴하고 편한 피에트로네 아파트에서 묵으세요. 한 두명이라면 저처럼 방 하나 빌리면 되고요, 세 분 이상의 가족단위라면 방 두 개 빌리고 내 집처럼 써도 될 거 같아요. 피에트로의 비엔비 강력추천합니다.
We had a great stay with Pietro at his bnb... Her is very friendly and happy person. The apartment was just right for us.... Pietro was very helpful with maps and places we should see.... His apartment is on the 81 bus line and that is all you need to see the majority of places in Rome. It is a good place to stay for sightseeing. I would recommend his apartment for anyone wanting a nice place to stay in Rome.
