The location of Peter's flat was very convenient for me because it is near the Ostiense Station where a train from the Fiumcino Airport can drop you off. There are also buses that one can take.
Upon arrival, I was greeted by his brother who was very welcoming. The next morning, I got to the Vatican museum in 30 mins from a local bus called the 23 to Clodio. Getting back to his place was difficult, but it was my fault for not looking up routes before leaving. If you ever return back to Peters place from the Vatican, just go to St. Peter's Station and take Metro A and get off at Termini. Then get on Metro B to Laurentino and get off on Piramide. It's a short walk to his place from here. When I returned, I was fortunate enough to meet Peter who had time to spare and show me parts of Rome. I immediately returned to exploring more of Rome and Peter offered this due to my stay of 2 days. I appreciate the fact that Peter took me to see the Colosseum, Pantheon, and other places nearby. We chatted and I was able to learn more about the history of Rome with Peter's vast knowledge and appreciation of his culture. I teased him about being a guided tour for me and asked if there were hidden charges. Haha.
Overall, my stay at Peter's place was warming and welcoming. This location is near all the public transportation you would need to get around Rome, but please attempt to familiarize yourself with it first. Peter is a great guy and when I do return to Rome, I will be staying at his flat again.
Peter was welcoming and kind. He took me for a walk the first day to see the area and enjoy lunch together. I'm very appreciative of his kindness. After the first afternoon, he was occupied with his own projects, allowing me to explore Rome and meet friends without feeling intrusive in his life. He is a wonderful host, the apartment is exactly as pictured. Clean, organized. He had several great guide books, a map to orient yourself and he has placed instructions around the apartment to answer questions when he is not there. I genuinely felt welcomed and it was a very pleasant stay.
Perfectly well connected and everything very reachable. Peter is a great host. He has lots of information to share about making the most of your time in Rome. His place has everything you need and is comfortable. Also close to bars, restaurants and pizzerias nearby or to transport options if you prefer to go elsewhere.
Peter was an excellent communicator before and during my stay. His directions were very easy to follow and his place easily found. Peter speaks English fluently and is well educated which allows for easy and interesting conversation.
The bathroom while perhaps showing some signs of age, was clean and functional.
I highly recommend a stay with Peter, a truly marvellous host.
De naam " well connected everything reachable" was goed gekozen , want het gaf precies de ligging in de stad aan; niet centraal gelegen, maar net buiten het drukke stadsrumoer. Met bus en metro, maar ook te voet was alles gemakkelijk bereikbaar: zowel centrum als buitengebied. Ruim voldoende voorzieningen vlakbij.
Goede afspraak gemaakt (herhaaldelijk mail-en smscontact) over aankomst, sleuteloverdracht, reisinfo van luchthaven naar het huis.
Bij aankomst in het huis een goed, gezellig, vermakelijk en interessant gesprek gevoerd aan de keukentafel, dat wel ruim twee uur duurde. Kortom perfecte ontvangst.
Alle vrijheid van gebruik sanitaire voorzieningen.
I had a very good experience staying at Peter's house. The room was nice, comfortable and clean, full of books and maps of Rome, which were useful to me. Peter also told me everything I wanted to know about public transport, prices, interesting places to visit etc. He gave me most accurate directions to his home from the airport and met me in the apartment. He respected my privacy all the way and made me feel very comfortable and secure. I absollutely recommand him as a host.
The area is also very nice. It is close to everything but at a time it's far of being flooded by tourists. It's kind of place where real people of Rome live their lives. And there's plenty of good and cheap bakeries, restaurants etc.
Nice place, everything just like on photos. Quite close to the center of Rome and near to the metro station. Peter is very friendly and pleasant host.
Met me at his place just as we agreed, and the last day showed me how to get to airport. If I will be in Rome again, I will stay at his place.
