Perfectly located in the centre of Rome. About a 5 minute walk to the Roman Forum, and 5 minutes to the Colosseum.
The apartment is also a 5 minute walk to the Metro Station Cavour (but Rome is a walking city), and 5 minutes to the Via Nationale (where buses can take you directly to the Vatican).
The apartment is in the Monti neighbourhood. It is not the Spanish steps area but about 15 minute walk (but then that area is full of expensive shops and tourists). The Monti area is the up and coming area in Rome. Trendy, centrally located, it's Rome's hidden gem. It has tons of restaurants and specialty stores that still give you this Roman, traditional feel.
The second floor contains the living/dining room, a small kitchen, a normal sized bathroom (shower only) and 2 bedrooms. (One large bedroom (Green Room) with a 160cm wide bed, the other (Blue Room) with a brand new normal bed (140cm wide)).
On the third floor is another small bedroom (9 sq metres total but with a 160cm wide sofa-bed) and hallway (for storage of your personal belongings).
All the mattresses in the flat are very comfortable. One is less than 1 year old, one is 3 years old, and the other (sofabed on 3rd floor) is older, but still very very comfortable. I sleep upstairs on that one myself.
From the third floor you can access the very extraordinary, plant-covered terrace (70 square metres) with table, 6 chairs, umbrella and barbecue.
The two floors are connected only by a spiral staircase.
This apartment is colorful and fun, and not for those who are looking for a ‘traditional’ Roman apartment. It (email hidden)d' in flat, not a bland IKEA-furnished apartment.
The kitchen is fully equipped with pots, pans, etc...(dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, coffee maker).
Sheets and towels are provided. (Beds will be made when you arrive).
If you are requesting availability, please send me your exact arrival and departure dates and the number of people in your party. The cost of the apartment varies according to the number of people.
There is also a 2 minute video tour of the apartment on YouTube. Ask me!
The apartment has a free internet connection (wireless or ethernet).
The street where the apt is on is so charming that Woody Allen chose it for his new movie (To Rome with Love).
Self check-in (keys will be available to you in Rome). If you need a greeter service, this is extra.
Please fill out your AirBnB profile so I know something about you. If you have a 'Blank' profile, I will ask you to fill it out.
Some messages to you might be sent to your Spam folder. If you have never used AirBnB, and did not get a response or a confirmation from me, please check your Spam folder. It's most likely in there.
Monti is one of the best neighborhoods in Rome. Look it up on (website hidden) and you will see.....it is the new place to be in Rome.
5 minute walk to Metro Cavour
Check in is normally in the afternoon, and check-out in the morning. But if there are no back-to-back reservations (people arriving and/or leaving on the same day), obviously, this is very flexible.
Normal check in time is 3 pm
Normal check out time is 11 am.
But this can be flexible depending on all the parties.
L'appartement est très bien situé, entre le Colisée et le Quirinal. Le propriétaire est très réactif et rend service.
Toutefois, ce logement n'est pas adapté pour une famille avec enfants: la cuisine est minuscule (2 m²), très peu équipée (seulement une casserole et une poêle plutôt usagées). En outre, les ustensiles et les étagères n'étaient pas propres à notre arrivée.
La salle de bain /Wc est également petite et... pas chauffée.
L'appartement est sombre, ce qui peut être agréable l'été, mais pas au mois de décembre.
Au final, nous avons payé 1750 € la semaine, ce qui est trop cher.
En conclusion, appartement adapté pour des couples qui ont envie de tester les nombreux restaurants du quartier, mais pas pour une famille.
I've had many families stay at the flat, and most are very satisfied. Yes the kitchen is small, but very well laid out and has many many utensils and pots and pans (contrary to what the guests writes). I have a full list of what is available in the kitchen upon request.
I'm sorry that he found the some of the kitchen items not perfectly clean, I will talk to the housekeeper about that.
Ontzettend leuke buurt om een aantal dagen in te vertoeven. Fles wijn met briefje lag klaar om ons te verwelkomen, bedden netjes opgedekt. Huis wordt duidelijk ook nog privé gebruikt, dus je bevindt je zeker tussen iemands eigen spullen. Terras boven was lekker. Alle hotspots waren uitstekend bereikbaar vanuit deze locatie. Hippe buurt, veel toeristen die het straatje kenden vanwege de Woody Allen film.
steve was extremely efficient and communicative before our stay,we let ourselves in under specific instructions which were spot on.
the flat is exactly as described plenty of room for 4 of us,perfect location easy to walk everywhere!!,lovely authentic area,
the local square is buzzing at night,great atmosphere.
Steve was an incredible host. His apartment and hospitality exceeded our expectations. The flat is separated in to two floors. One floor contains two large bedrooms that look out on to the quiet and quaint passage way plus the living and dining room, kitchen bath and tiny outdoor patio with laundry facilities. The second floor is accessible by a charming spiral staircase housing the third bedroom and terrace that seems to go on, and on, and on. The terrace was the most spectacular amenity offered at the flat but everything was more than suitable to our needs. This flat is great.
The location is fantastic. It is about a 5- 7 min walk to the Colosseum, you can reach most historic attractions within an hour or much less of walking. The neighbourhood of Monti has many great restaurants and boutiques. The neighbourhood is full of life but the flat is located a few blocks from major traffic subduing the noise. All the amenities you need are just around the corner. The best procehetta sandwich I have ever had is available 10 paces south from the flat, a bowl of fresh made carbonara pasta is another 10 paces west, plus a produce store and a wine/speciality food store are just across the path from the taverna.
Steve is extremely organized and communicative. He sent us fantastic instructions before arrival and left us with a detailed guide about the neighbourhood, top attractions in Rome and helpful information about his suite. Instructions are key—speaking from past experience, you can spend a lot of time figuring out a washing machine if you don't speak/read the language, this was not the case here. I won't spoil the other pleasant surprise… let's just say, Steve is very thoughtful.
The Wifi works awesome here. You will have no problem surfing the net, getting your email or streaming the odd movie. My wife was working while travelling and was so pleased with the speed of his internet.
Thank you for a wonderful experience in Rome, Steve.
We spent wonderful days in Rome. We enjoyed Steve's flat with his individual stile, the properly cleaned rooms and the tremendous terrace! Everything was perfectly organised- the Key transfer, the information how to get to the flat and personal recommendations about the surrounding.
The flat has a perfect location in the Monti quarter, near important sights and with loads of small restaurants and cafés around the corner.
Thanks a lot, Steve!
Steve provided good communication, and useful info etc.
Apartment was exactly as described.. great location and neighbourhood..
Excellent introduction and welcome package. The location is simply great, and the roof terrace amazing. Based on the description I would have expected a bit more space. Also, although the kitchen is fully equipped, simply because the space is so small it is not really a pleasure to prepare full meals for 5 persons in there. We therefore went out to restaurants more than planned. Thanks a lot for the pleasant stay!
I'm a French-American, and I've been living in Europe for 24 years.
I live mostly in Paris and part-time in Rome. I rent out my Roman flat when I'm not there (often). Been renting it for 9 years now, it's a great flat, in a great neighbourhood with a super terrace.
