And ' the neighborhood of Rome, for young people! :
San Lorenzo is in effect considered the university district of Rome. In fact, the University of Rome "La Sapienza ", which, with its 148,000 registered students , the university is the largest in Europe . For this reason, the nightlife in the area is lively , full of restaurants, pizzerias, pubs and clubs , internet cafes , internet point , cultural centers, art exhibitions, is certainly the area of culture and artists and music. Meeting place is the main " square Immaculate" , which every night is invaded by hundreds of kids . News San Lorenzo and the Holy Grail : June 19, 2007 the most important Italian news agencies reported the news of the possibility that the Holy Grail is in Rome , right in the basilica of " St. Lawrence Outside the Walls ." To support this hypothesis is the archaeologist Alfredo Barbagallo . After two years of research, the researcher believes that several factors clearly demonstrate the presence of a product with characteristics similar to those from the two thousand year old relic.
It ' a very young neighborhood , with strong cultural and artistic temperament , there are many cute and cozy rooms , such as pubs , pizzerias, and artistic and cultural centers , is also provided for pizzerias, restaurants, bars, with very affordable prices , there are also several supermarkets , one of which is 50 meters from the house, and a convenience store that works every day continuously until midnight , 70 meters from the house. The neighborhood is not dangerous, as many people think , there is a sweet cohabitation among older people , born in this historic district and the thousands of young artists and students residing .
The house is connected to the historic center and tourist areas and archaeological incredibly fast and easy. Under the house there is the tram N. 4, which in 4 minutes connects to " Manzoni " underground station, leading into 2 stops to Termini Station , then 2 stops to Piazza Barberini ( Trevi Fountain ) , 1 stop in the Piazza di Spagna, , in 1 stop at Piazza del Popolo, in a few other stops to the Vatican.
The tram N. 3 also leads from the house to the Coliseum in 8 minutes and another 10 minutes to Trastevere. from the Colosseum you can , walk a few minutes to reach Piazza Venezia, Trevi Fountain, Pantheon, Piazza Navona, Campo Dei Fiori .

Un choix par défaut loin du centre ville et trop bruyant.
Il n'y avait plus trop de choix dans nos moyens au moment de la réservation.
Un appartement propre mais vieillot, le périphérique passe devant vos fenêtres (raison pour laquelle les stores sont baissés dans la photo peut être) et vous avez dans la rue le tramway plus la route autant dire que les boules quies sont nécessaires pour dormir.
Une seule salle de bain avec wc à partager avec les autres occupants de la chambre à coté, la prise électrique pour la machine à laver est limite dans la baignoire, et le bouton d'allumage pour le ballon d'eau chaude dans la baignoire. Une configuration qui n'est certainement pas conforme à la législation actuelle. Malgré, le nombre d'occupants (jusqu'à 5)un seul rouleau de papier toilette pour 6 nuits lol.
Nous n'avons vu notre hôte que lors de la remise des clés à l'arrivée.
Compte tenu de ces désavantages , je trouve ça cher.
un choix par défaut mieux que de dormir sous les ponts!
A default option, too far from city centre and too loud
We took it because there was not many accommodation available at that time.
A clean old-fashionned flat facing the ring road, (it is right in front of your window , not shown on the pictures because of the shutters) one tramway line serves the street below and you also have a road down below.
So it is definitely noisy, ear plugs are a must have if you want to get a chance to sleep.
Only one bathroom with toilets inside that we shared with the other (website hidden) is definitely an outdated bathroom with a plug really closed to the hipbath. Even a plug to switch on the hot water tank is in the hip bath. I am not sure it respects the actual regulations.
One paper roll for a week for 5 people lol.
We saw the host only once at our arrival. it didn't look that he came back during the week to clean up the bathroom.
it might look cheap but if you take in account these disavantages it is actually expensive.
A default option, still better than having no roof over your head.
Emilie we are sorry for your review but:
we are not far away from center, 4 min. by n. 3 tram, which take doorstep for the subway that connects you quickly to the central station and to the main squares such as Republic Square, Barberini square (Trevi Fountain) Popolo square (via del Corso) and Vatican. In 7-10 minutes the tram takes you to the Colosseum which is the city center. We do not agree with you, sorry.
Emilie photos were made by airbnb directly, however St. Lorenzo quartier is not a neighborhood like any other, it is a charming neighborhood for a young, simple-minded, the ring road in the evening after 11 pm is closed and is closed for the whole weekend, so it's not a problem, St. Lorenzo quartier is full of graffiti on the walls and the beltway overpass , contributes to that sense of artistic neighborhood, during the day until the evening helps to streamline traffic. Reading the review to 98% positive, generally do not pose serious problems.
Emilie the apartment is a little noisy, but not too much with the double glazing and ceiling fans and from June we guarantee the air conditioning until the autumn, if someone is too sensitive to background noise, is good to have the ear plugs.
Emilie, in our airbnb account there are no secrets about the fact that when you don’t book the whole apartment you must share things , but it was never a problem, because the tourists usually come out in the morning and fall in the evening. The electrical outlet is not in the tank, but above the area of the water jet, right under the hot water boiler, inside is protected, however, the electrical system is equipped with life-saving, and at the first light variation or short circuit, the current would be interrupted.
Emilie in the tourist contract that we sign with customers, it is stated that we do not provide during the period services such as cleaning, spare parts, food, toilet paper, we give the apartment ready, but we entrust the apartment guests who should possibly release it as they have found it, whether when customers call us for help normally we arrive as soon as is possible.
Emilie , we are obliged to accept your bad review, , we believe it is depended on an initial discussion, that we have had with one of your friends at ceck in time about the tourist contract. From this discussion there was a rejection about the apartment, in our opinion you have closed your heart , and this has produced a review which that is damaging us , in fact reservations have been stopped and somebody also started to deal with us with your same reactions that normally there are not.
About your tips:
Emilie-1 does not appear that the apartment has a bad smell, the toilet paper that you find as essential at ceck in , after is quiet normal that you should buy yourself it, because otherwise it is no longer a touristic lease , of corse when is possible if you ask additional things we try to help. By virtue of this contract there is for example we don’t add the tourist tax, 3.50 € per day per guest, and this is very positive.
2-about pictures, if airbnb agrees they will send another photographer for a new service with bypass.
3- when we give the keys to the customer he should provide personally during is stayng to open the windows and ventilate the rooms and use deodorant spry that still is present in the bathroom.
4- Emilie your advice concerning store’s map is very good, as we still provide this informations at the ceck in time.
without rancor a & a
Angelo was very welcoming and gave us a full run down on everything around the local area and how to use public transport or walk to certain destinations and even had a big map on the wall with everything marked out. The room was exactly as described and it was a nice place to stay and was quite spacious. The shared facilities were adequate and with only one other share room in the apartment, you wouldn't have much hassle competing for use of the bathroom or kitchen with other guests.
The apartment is close to the supermarket and not far from restaurants and bars. It is also quite a nice morning walk to get to Termini or the Coliseum.
Not really something to improve as such but the small bath/shower was quite difficult for a taller man to use but it is part of the Rome lifestyle so you get to live like the locals. Not a major issue, just something to be aware of.
I would be comfortable to recommend this to others and would happily stay there again when I next visit Rome.
They were really great hosts and the room was like it is described. Angelo helped me immediately when I called him and had a problem. Thanks again for that! He was really really nice and had a lot of good hints for us. The flat was very very clean and there was everything you need and more. The flat is located well, it is also possible to walk home from the Colloseum, if there is no more streetcar going. But we realized that Rome is a very noisy city so for everyone who visits Rome: bring Oropax with you :-)
Très bon accueil.
Chambre conforme aux photos, spacieuse (la plus grande en tout cas)
Très bruyant, au bord d'un boulevard avec vue sur une 4 voies surélevée et insonorisé (mais qd même ! )
Cuisine bien équipée mais petite, il faut s'accorder avec les locataires de l'autre chambre pour ne pas y être en même temps.
Douche dans une baignoire sabot, très inconfortable.
Le quartier n'est pas comme décrit:
il y a quelques restaurants très dispersés, sans aucun charme et aucune ambiance du soir dans les rues.
Par contre, le tramway est en face de l'immeuble ce qui est très pratique.
Dominique, thank you for your review, thank you for saying that you have been well received, that the room was large and in line with our description, we agree with the fact of street noise , but only in part , because we have double glazing and air conditioning, and this is a good solution to the problem. It 'quite useless to say that you have to share the kitchen with other guests, because it is already specified in our airbnb account, then is obvious .The shower placed in a bath tub with the seat, for some people it is quite comfortable and relaxing, but it's a personal opinion, however, that we must accept. Concerning "San Lorenzo" district , we disagree about your opinion, because, so is stated in our airbnb description, and so is indicated in Airbnb conduct, ( we attache airbnb link about it : https://www.airbnb.it/ endroits / rome / san-lorenzo). Airbnb says: "San Lorenzo One of the most cheerfully noisy and youth in the center of Rome, in which entertainment both day and night". Since you say that the neighborhood is without charm and without evening atmosphere on the streets, and this opinion is at variance with our own and with airbnb and also with many who have stayed in our house, for this reason we think that there is something wrong , however, we have been happy to serve you, to give you the triple at the price of the double and allow the ceck in the afternoon instead of the morning at 10, but this was in our possibility, cheers A&A
We came into Rome wanting a sense of what Rome was really like—the local experience, the local people, the things and places that went beyond obvious tourist-oriented activities. And I'd say that Angelo and this flat really hit what we were looking for. It's small but works and there's a tram right next to the place that'll take you pretty much anywhere in the city and back. A nice small bakery and grocery mart are nearby as well for breakfast and snacks.
One of the problems we had was that we came in during a particularly hot period during June and the first two nights we were left without the air conditioner because it wasn't cleaned yet. We understood because it was the first time it was used this season, but it was pretty darn humid and hot for those two nights. After the AC was cleaned, it was absolutely fine though and we slept well! The beds were decent and the bathroom was relatively clean to use.
I'd recommend it if you're looking for this sort of out-of-the-way place, but would also warn you that it really does feel like living in Rome (the good and bad)!
We had a great time in Angelo's place. He was very helpful and the apartment was lovely and clean. Very nice to have towels provided too! It is a well connected area to be in, with good transport links, though might be a little intimidating at night if you're a single girl. We were three girls though and we had a great time! Thanks Angelo, we would come back :)
Would you like to stay in the nice calm place, sleep well and be easily connected with a heart of the city? Then the best why to do is to stay in Angelo and Alessia place, few minutes by the tram from the center, there is many nice restaurant and cozy bars around. The rooms are spacy and clean. Talk with a Angelo was my pleasure and hope we will see each other once again!
