DON'T USE THE INSTANT BOOKING BOTTON, PLEASE
The apartment is on the second floor of an old small traditional building from the early 1900s that faces the pedestrian area of Pigneto , the heart of the district. The house, renovated in 2013, consists of a living room with kitchen, bedroom , bathroom and a private roof terrace overlooking the rooftops of Pigneto. The building is located in a lovely private street within the pedestrian area, so it is really quiet.
During your stay you will have access to Full HD LCD TV, DVD player, amplifier that can be used with any MP3 player, microwave, hair dryer and free internet wireless 24/24.
Pigneto is a genuine old fashioned neighborhood, a succession of small houses from the 1920s and narrow streets . The area is really close to the city center, and very well connected by public transport. Pigneto is the perfect location if you want to live an authentic Roman experience, and not just feel like a tourist.
My home is in the heart of the pedestrian area that every morning hosts an amazing street market with local vegetables, fish and meat, but in the evening it becomes one of the areas most frequented by young romans , who find here bars and restaurants of all kinds.
The neighborhood , now famous for being one of the liveliest and most creative in the city, in the past has been one of the favorite sets by neo-realists , who chose its streets as a setting for films such as "Roma città aperta", "Accattone" and "Bellissima".

Alessandro war besonders nett, hat uns viele Tipps für Rom und Umgebung gegeben. Die Wohnung war wie beschrieben - klein aber fein. Sehr sauber und es gab auch zwei Ventilatoren weil es sehr heiß war (und es keine Klimaanlage gab). Die Gegend ist besonders toll. Viel los am Abend aber kaum Touristen! Wir haben jeden Abend sehr gut gegessen!
Der Aufenthalt in dem Ortsteil Pigneto war für den Besuch einer Stadt wie Rom perfekt. Hier konnte man den Abend (oder den Morgen) weniger touristisch verbringen ohne sich zu langweilen. Die Wohnung war super ruhig und sehr gemütlich. Man konnte wunderbar schlafen . Die Terrasse ist natürlich das absolute Highlight in solch einer Metropole.
Alessandro war ein perfekter Gastgeber. Leider haben wir ihn nicht persönlich kennen gelernt. Er hat alles super organisiert und war auch bei unerwarteten Änderungen flexibel und hilfsbereit. Der Kontakt zu ihm hätte nicht besser sein können.
Vielen Dank!!! :)
This is a great flat for a couple wanting to explore Rome. It's a good size, not too small. Comfortable bed, good bathroom and good living area cum kitchen. It's very secure. Top floor with a roof terrace. Plenty of space for drying clothes (the flat has a washing machine). The area is fascinating. The street itself a pedestrian area so during the day it can feel a little edgy but it's fine. In the early evening it transforms into a wonderful, busy street of bars and restaurants. Brilliant atmosphere.
Alessandro, your host, sends you his recommendations which are really good. He may be working in Milan but is very keen to be of help and to make sure you have a good time. Very helpful information on public transport which we used extensively.
The restaurants listed are excellent.
The area is a bus ride into the centre of Rome. About twenty minutes depending on which of the buses you use. It's good to get away from the centre in the evenings so we enjoyed that aspect of it as well.
There is also a market in the nearby piazza on most days.
We would happily stay there again.
We stayed for a week at Alessandro's place, and it was lovely! A beautifully decorated apartment with a nice terrace, in gorgeous Rome.
We had a great time staying at Alessandro's stylish apartment, and really didn't want to leave! It's the perfect base for exploring Rome; close to the touristy parts, but it felt like we were in the "real" Rome. Pigneto is a lively neighbourhood with plenty of bars and great restaurants (Primo Pigneto is a must) and good transport links to the centre. The apartment has everything you might need and the terrace is a lovely place to relax at the end of a hard day's sightseeing. The only drawback was that we didn't meet Alessandro because he was in Milan, but he was always available by text to answer any questions we had. Thanks Alessandro!
Alessandro was a friendly, reliable and uncomplicated host. Apartment is exactly as described including a complementary map, listing restaurant and places in Pigneto - a highly recommandable stay.
The flat is a realy nice one. The sourroundings are not really toruistic, we likes it al lot. My girlfriend said, that she wouldn't walk around there at night by her own. Driving to the city center with the bus was easy. All the restaurantes in den the street rigt beside the flat are really nice and good. Overall al realy cool stay.
