Peter and his place was what i have expected and what it was announced. He was helpful and even waited for me until 2am (flight delays) upon arrival. His place is well located, clean and well organized. I enjoyed my Rome experinced and i had not to worry about my acomodation or location. My first experience with Airbnb and no regrets. I am planning already my next trips with this option for sure!!!
Ottima accoglienza, Peter è un Host discreto, ma attento e premuroso. Il quartiere offre molto, sia in termini di locali, sia per i collegamenti.
First off I want to mention that I had arrived late at night, maybe 2:30 am or later from the airport and Peter was still able to meet with me to give me the keys and do a quick tour. It was very considerate of him to let me in so late. Peter was an amazing host with lots to offer and really accommodating. The room was exactly as pictured and very comfortable. It was also really well decorated and Peter left a lot of guides, maps, and books for travelers new to the city. He left them all out in case you have some down time to read about attractions.
The listing is close to the metro and the metro was easy to ride to all the notable attractions. I spent my few days out from the room so I didn't get to spend much time with Peter. However, we did go out to dinner my last night there and I've found Peter to be a well traveled intellectual who has experience and knowledge of everything Italy. He had taken me to a nice restaurant with amazing food and then spirits and ice cream. If I had the chance to stay extra days I definitely would have spent more time hanging out with Peter. If you're looking for an inexpensive place to stay with an awesome host, then you'll find it here with Peter.
Very roomy and convenient place to stay. Everything was as stated. And displayed. A lot of tourist information sitting on the coffee table. Would definitely reserve again when in Rome...
After experience Rome close to Vatican City, I moved from there to Peter's apartment. It was perfect as I was only trying to get more of the city that's not involved with the historical center.
Very well connected, good prices around. I met Peter the same day of arrival, he offered a coffee while giving me advices from around. Comfortable bed, everything was clean, a lot of books and magazines everywhere...really interesting!
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.
