Small independent apartment on the 4th floor (no elevator) of a beautiful building, 100 meters from St. Peter's.
A room with a single bed, but it can become a bedroom, even if a bit narrow, but very pretty, kitchenette and bathroom with shower, with very small terrace.
monthly fee € 699.00, plus the cost of € 25,00 for final cleaning, linen is included. .
otherwise € 35.00 for a single room and € 45.00 for a double room per day, plus euro 25.00 the cost of cleaning finally.
N.b. : The rate in the Cristhmas time Will be little more expensive!!!
non si fuma in casa solo sul balconcino, non si possono portare a dormire persone sconosciute a meno che non mi venga prima comunicato il rispetto delle cose e della tranquillità.
This is a nice cozy room with kitchenette and private washroom located very close to the Vatican. I saw the papal address almost by accident because I was there on a Wednesday morning. Only drawback is that there is no elevator and it's on the 4th floor. Very good value for Rome though. Nice little balcony too.
Oh, I had such a great time at Simona´s place. It really looks like on the pictures. You only have to walk a few metres to Saint Peter.
Simona was the best hostess you can wish for.
I spent about a month in Rome working travelling to libraries in the city in preparation for my dissertation so my needs were a bit different than some people who might be interested in renting this Room.
The Flat was nice. As advertised it is small, but larger than the room I got in Florence for around the same price. Simona is very pleasant and understanding. She lives at next to rent location and the rental flat shares a balcony with with her apartment. That being said, I only saw her twice. Once when she showed me around the room, and one other time because I burned some garlic trying to cook (woops).
The room also has a refrigerator, a hot plate, a coffee machine and plenty of pots and dishes, which is enough to take care of meals on the days when you might want save a little money. There are nearby grocery stores and inexpensive laundry service, as well as a few cafe's and some pretty good Chinese food (of course there are many traditional Italian restaurants in the area). The flat is also within sight of pillars of St.Peters which is really pleasing to take walks around in the evening after the crowds have died down.
I would recommend the flat to anyone as a good value, except in two cases. I don't recommend the flat to anyone who has mobility problems such as prior knee injuries that give them pain, or anyone who needs assistance walking sometimes. The flat doesn't have elevator access and is on the fourth floor (over 80 steps from the ground floor, I counted). I should add I had no problem with the steps.
The second exception, is true of rentals all over Rome if your are renting in July. Rome is hot in the mid summer, and the flat does not have air conditioning. The room has a fan, which for me was enough to sleep comfortably, but I can tolerate heat pretty well. For people who do not cope with heat well, you might want to opt for an air conditioned location.
Right from the moment I booked this flat up to the day I left Simona was incredibly helpful. She is a friendly and very approachable individual. Simona’s mother is also very kind and chatty – you often see her because you share a terrace with her. They both washed my clothes for me (twice! – this being such a luxury as I am travelling for three months so miss a good washing machine) and let me borrow anything I wanted such as a broom to clean the flat. In terms of the flat I couldn’t fault it – it is equipped with everything you could want. Nice big fridge, microwave, iron, hairdryer and it even had biscuits waiting for me when I arrived! The best bit about it is the REAL Italian coffee maker (electric, so far quicker and easier than the ones you put on a hob) so I could have proper Italian coffee each morning. If I come back to Rome and need a place to stay I shall definitely re-book myself here! Via della Fornaci is also awesome, its much more authentic feeling and has that true ‘local’ feeling Bout it. I was really surprised by this because you are so close to the Vatican. Also if you are a fitness freak like me, its so close to Villa Doria Pamphili which is beautiful for running. It’s HUGE and quite nice and wild, stunning for an early morning workout ☺
I will really miss my three weeks in Rome and can only thank Simona and her mum for their hospitality.
When arriving we had to move to another apartment because there was a problem that was fixed the next day. Simona was very kind to find us a really nice place a few blocks away, so that was not a problem for us. The location is fantastic, walking distance to Saint Peter's, the metro and restaurants. The apartment met our expectations. In the summer it could be hot in the day time....I don't know if then, Simona offers a fan to her guests.
Чудесная комната. Я бы даже сказала, что это полноценная мини квартира. Отдельный душ и санузел, кухня, спальня и балкон. Симона, отзывчивая хозяйка, очень доброжелательная. Ватикан в двух шагах, приличный район и метро сравнительно не далеко, хотя в Риме все рядом. Хорошего отдыха. Рекомендую!
El apartamento estaba muy bien ubicado con respecto al Vaticano, Simona y su esposo son muy adorables, y nos ofrecieron un apartamento muy bonito,cómodo y limpio, es exactamente igual que como aparece en las fotos.
Por ser fin de año, se nos hizo muy complicado conseguir apartamentos en Roma, todos eran muy costosos y mal ubicados, después de buscar y recibir muchos no como respuesta,nos recomendaron este, al principio no sabíamos nada, porque no tenia ninguna evaluación, pero nos arriesgamos y valió mucho la pena.
Abrazos a Simona y Giorgio

Good cuisine And trip all over the world, for visit the other cities museum and so on...
I like books and that's why I have a library in the center of Rome in one of the most important and beautiful squares of Rome, Piazza Borghese!
I created inside upstairs, a kitchen where I do cooking classes in Rome for foreigners.
You can spend a great time in a nice and charming, the bookshop, which has 50 years of history, with beautiful architecture books.
The course fee is € 70.00 per person, starts at 12:00 am and only you can prepare the dishes and homemade fettuccine and then enjoy with a glass of wine all that you have cooked !!!
It will surely be a day of original and hard to forget!!!!!
