Each bedroom is far away from the others, so everybody can enjoy his own privacy.

Wifi internet connection free.

Interaction with guests

We live in the same building, and guests can always contact us if necessary.
Usually we like welcoming guests personally, unless we are out of Rome, and saying good bye when they leave.
We are available for any information. Do not hesitate to contact us.

The neighborhood

The neighborhood is not a touristic place. Here you can live like a local resident. There are a lot of food shops (supermarket too).
The quarter is lively during the morning but quite calm at night since there is no movida (if you like it you can get there walking - about 20 minutes - or by bus).
We are really close to St Peter and its magnificence and viewing St. Peter's place by night is an exciting experience. If you like Nativity Scenes you can visit that of the roman street cleaners, open almost the whole year; it is built with small bits of stones from all over the world. The Pope visits it every year. Really beautiful and a few minutes walking away from our building.
There is a playground in 5 minutes walk, next to St. Peter’s railstation too.
In addition there are two hospitals, the Santo Spirito, near St. Peter's Square, and Il Bambino Gesù, pediatric; both are within walking distance.
Not far from us there is a wide, wonderluf public park too (Villa Pamphili) where enjoying walking and jogging, It was the country residence of a family of the Roman nobility, and so has come down to us intact. The villa itself is a representative office of the President of the Council of Ministers. Nearby there is also the Gianicolo, beautiful terrace on Rome with lots of trees and a view that embraces the whole town.

Getting around

The quarter is very well connected.
Our location is only 5 minutes far away from S. Peter's railstation (from/to Fiumicino airport - change in Trastevere railstation - and Civitavecchia).
From/to the airport pick up service available (fee).
There is a free parking 200 mt far from the building (white stripes), but an indoor parking (fee) is available too.
We recommend not to use of a car to get around in Rome
64 bus is frequent, fast and crosses all downtown until Termini railstation, getting you close to most important sites to visit.
Metro is farer (beyond St. Peter) and you can't enjoy the beauty of Rome travelling underground.
You can walk too, if you like. Navona place is about 20-25 minutes far away and I love walking there. Moreover, even if downtown is very wide, you can enjoy your visit only walking, so you can go around narrow and characteristic streets, almost without cars, and discover the real soul of old Rome, that you can't see using buses on the main streets.

Giovanna is welcoming and helpful, and responds to messages very quickly. This apartment is spacious for our 7 people, with everything we need during our stay, you can see from many details that Giovanna is really considerate. Vatican is 5-10 minutes walk and there is a 64 bus station within 5minutes walk so it's convenient for sightseeing. There are 24 hours shop and different kinds of restaurants nearby. Overall it is one of the best airbnb I have lived.

Response from Giovanna:
Thanks for appreciating our apartment as one of the best offered through airbnb where you've lived in. The apartment is really roomy even for many guests, with a 30sqm living room, it is really close to Vatican and to the bus stop; moreover is very well served with an always open grocery and many small food shops, restaurants, pizzerias, bars, take away food and pizza. I always try to offer my guests a perfect experience,   I'm happy to have succeeded once again :)

Giovanna is a wonderful host and her apartment fit our family perfectly. The pictures are accurate and there is plenty of room. Some previous comment mentioned that there was only 1 shower available -- but that is no longer true. After some great remodeling, both are full bathrooms. This was a great help with 4 adults. There was a little noise traffic from the street, but it seemed to only be heard by the front bedroom. We really enjoyed the location as it had a Carrefour grocery store up the street, along with a coffee bar and gelato store just a few doors down, that was our toddler's favorite perk! Also for kids there is a small playground a street over that shares a fence with the train station, maybe 2 blocks away. Its a great family apartment or for multiple adults that want their own space.

Thank you for your kind review. Our apartment is really roomy and there are two full bathroom. To be honest there are hermetic windows with antinoise glasses so if they are closed there should be no noise in the apartment. Our location let guests live as residents; there are a lot of restaurants, cafes, pizzerias; moreover food shops and yes, a playground as well. We love children and can provide up to 2 120 lenght baby beds and 1 high chair.

Giovanna met us at the apartment the day of check in and made sure that everything was perfect for our stay. She accommodated our baby with a high chair and a cot. The apartment has the perfect layout for large family groups with plenty of space to be together, but also plenty of places to have some quiet time. The beds were very comfortable and there were plenty of shops, restaurants and cafés within walking distance. St. Peter's was also very close and the bus into the main part of the city was very convenient. We loved our stay and wished it was longer.

Giovanna was prompt at answering all email queries prior to our relocation to Rome from Australia. She arranged an earlier check in for us too as our plane landed early in the morning. Giovanna was thorough in showing us the apartment and the facilities and provided her mobile number so that we could contact her with anything we needed throughout our stay. We stayed with Giovanna for 6 weeks whilst we searched for our permanent home in Rome. The location was great for walking to the neighbouring suburbs - Prati (15 min walk), Campo di Fiori (20min), Trastevere (old part - 25min) Vatican (5-10min). Good selection of shops and restaurants near by. Bus and Taxis within 5 minute walk. Train Station less than 10min walk. The apartment was bright and basic but we (2 adults 2 children - 1yr and 2.5yr) managed to happily survive a 6 week stay :o). However, i feel the kitchen lacked space & utensils to prepare proper meals which wouldnt be a problem for a shorter stay. The lounge was hot during the day(we stayed July & August) as no aircon but the bedrooms had aircon so sleeping was not a problem. The bathroom was adequate - no frills but perfectly functional. The only drawback would be that the power would cut out frequently when using more than one appliance at the same time - we couldnt use the dishwasher and the oven at the same time - or the washing machine and the dishwasher... however, im not sure if thats just a rome thing as a pose to an apartment thing. Overall - our experience at Giovannas was a good one. She was a great host and was more than happy to help with any information needed and with any issues that arose. Thanks for having us! ;o)

Response from Giovanna:
Hello Kerri, thank you for your kind review. I appreciate your remarks too, since we'll be able to upgrade our offer. However I'm sorry that the kitchen was not equipped enough for your needs. I hosted some female students for up three months; I knnow that they cooked but I never was requested to provide something more. What is enough for a student can not be enough for a mum, of course, but I always tell my guests asking me what they need. There is no air conditioning in the living room, but we specified in our listing that A/C is in all bedrooms. Some guests managed in a comfortably way closing all windows and keeping the bedroom doors open, and so they kept cool the entire apartment. Maybe I forgot telling you this tip. In Italy we are used to manage electrical devices so that the power is always on. To be honest I think telling you about this matter, but maybe I didn't... However we are looking for a solution. Anyway I'm happy that you enjoyed your stay in our apartment and in our area. THANK YOU

One of my best stays in Rome. The location and the apartment were perfect. We were a group of 10 and we all were very comfortable. Giovanna was so kind and explained everything in the apartment. She was the best Airbnb host I've had in all my travels. Thanks again for such wonderful stay.

The apartment was wonderful. It is just like the pictures. Giovanna met with us when we arrived. She gave us a tour and explained how everything worked and answered our questions. Everything was within walking distance and the bus stop is just down the road if needed. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking utensils. The place was cozy and comfortable and great for our stay. We would definitely stay here again.

Great location walking distance to the vatican. Easy to get around to all of Rome's major sights. She was available to us for any questions we had daily and extremely helpful. There are two bathrooms but only one shower but it worked out fine with all eight of us after all. Carrefour in walking distance and that was also very helpful.

Hello,
my name is Giovanna. I'm still in my forties and I have a family that I love.
I like meeting new people and my host style is to help guests to feel at home, telling them main things to know about the apartment, the neighborhood and Rome, where I live.
A holiday as being at home, as if my apartment would be a real second home of every guest.
