The house is out of the center, Peter waited to give me the key on Christmas Day. Peter speaks fluent English. The house is the same as described.
Stay at peter's house was great! the place is really comfortable,unfortunately whe didn't meet each others,but everything was nice and quiet.
If I'll go back to Rome this will be my choice!
Excellent place to stay in Rome and Peter is a welcoming host. The apartment is located in an area outside of the touristy centre but is located close to public transport that it makes it easy to get around the city. The room is spacious and has a huge number of maps and guide books for you to browse to inform your visit, Peter himself is also an excellent source of information. Bathroom all in working order and the bed is comfortable. Great place to stay, recommend it!
peter's flat is absolutely cosy and beautiful. he had everything extremely detailed for you. the flat is beautiful and he is always ready to help :) would recommend to everyone
I only stayed at Perter's flat for one night and didn't meet him in person as we both had very busy schedules during my stay. But Peter was considerate with a nice note for me and arranging the meeting with his brother on my arrival in late Friday morning so I could drop my luggage before started exploring Rome, which I appreciated very much.
The flat is tidy and comfy, Peter even left many tour guide books and map to borrow only I wish I could have had enough time to read, maybe next time.:-) The location is perfect 5 mins walk from Ostiense train station and 2 metro stops from Colosseum. Highly recommend.
Peter was an excellent host! The room was really clean as was the bathroom and the kitchen. It was a really nice stay, in a nice area with everything reachable in a few minutes.
I stayed for a night at Peter's apartment. It's a very neat and organized room, filled with a massive collection of interesting books. There's only 2 rooms in the apartment so you are only sharing the bathroom with Peter. There are good eateries nearby and the train station is very near. The only small thing that I would mention is that if you come out from the train station really late at night, I felt a little uncomfortable walking alone. Once you are out of the station and onto the Main Street, then it was ok. When getting out of the station use the right exit. The left exit leads you to a really deserted place.
