Yep. It's the right place.
Wonderful and brand new artist's loft, cozy and full of light.
Great location, just in the middle of the new trendy Pigneto district (similar to Soho or Brick Lane - full of restaurants, little shops and bars).
Just 10 minutes with 105 bus from Termini Station (where most of the buses and all the Undreground lines are), 15 minutes with a direct fast 18 bus from Piazza Venezia (the very center of Rome).
Ancient oak parquet floor, Chester English sofa, cement bathroom with crystal shower box, industrial kitchen.
Large queen size double bed, memory foam mattress, fast wi-fi internet connection (ask me for the password!), washing machine.
Every piece of furniture is an original vintage piece from Italian, French and German 40's, 50's, 60's and 70's.
Clean towels and sheets included.
A good quality double airbed is also available, to accomodate up to four guests. Just mind that the place is a loft, so it doesn't have doors (except, of course, for the bathroom)
Host speaks Italian, English and French.
I rent the entire loft. You'll have the place just for yourself.
I AM CURRENTLY ALSO LOOKING FOR AN APARTEMENT SWAP WITH LONDON OR PARIS (FLEXIBLE DATES).
The guest have the whole place to themselves.
Interaction with Guests
I usually try to be as much comunicative and flexible as I can with the check in. I'm usually there to welcome them, show them the flat and them the keys, keeping me available if there's any problem. If I'm out of town for work, a friend does it for me.

You'll love it. If you want a taste of the real new Rome, this is the place to be.
Just 10 minutes with 105 bus from Termini Station (where most of the buses and all the Undreground lines are), 15 minutes with a direct fast 18 bus from Piazza Venezia (the very center of Rome). The bus stop is literally in front of the flat.
Just respect the loft and try to leave it as you find it. I'll appreciate if you'll have a little care for the parquet (it's ancient and quite delicate): when water falls on the floor, it's important to dry it (there's a cloth in every room to make it easy). For the rest, just feel home and enjoy your stay!
Francesco a été très facilement joignable malgré des contraintes professionnels. Dès notre arrivée dans le loft, nous avons été accueilli par quelques douceurs typiques.
L'appartement est absolument conforme aux descriptions: agréable, spacieux avec une décoration très sympa.
Nous avons pu y concocter quelques super plats de pates :-)
Le quartier nous a beaucoup plu: vivant, bien desservi par les transports.Une très bonne adresse a proximité pour les amateurs de pizza: Pizza Vulcano (Via del Pigneto 189)
Pour les personnes sensibles au bruit, prévoir des bouchons d'oreilles car le cartier est vivant.
Super endroit pour découvrir Rome.
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour chez Francesco.
L'appart est superbe, facile d'accès et le quartier rempli de petits bars et restos de quartier.
Francesco a été très sympa et vous donnera plein de bons conseils pour que votre séjour soit réussi.
Nous y retournerons avec plaisir!
Very nice place and exactly as described. Although the host wasn't there everything worked out without any problems because we had an email with instructions in advance (how to get the keys and get around..).
Especially recommendations on food were good, thank you for that.
Would definetely come to this place again.
Me and my friend spent a long weekend in Francesco's appartment. Everything was as described - the flat is not very in the center, but that is clearly shown on the map. And with a few stops on the tram you reach the main station easily. Handling keys, cleanness and communication were without hassle. Flat is super sunny and stylish.
The one negative thing, but this is very individual, is the noise from the many cars in front of the building. I am very sensitive with hearing, so it was maybe worse than it actually is. But to be honest, Rome IS loud, wherever you go. If you want it quiet, go to Jyväskylä in Finland. :)
No reason why you should not rent the appartment.
The appartement is fantastic, big and wonderful decorated. Pigneto is a great young and alterntive area for visting Rome with lots of good bars and Restaurants. You can easily reach everything by tram or bus with the stop direct in front of the appartement.
Francesco is very sweet to greet us when we arrive. He's very quick with all our questions and gave us a good list of restaurants and even made reservation for us. Thanks to his recommendation, we had our best meal in ROMA at Primo. The apt is spacious and nicely decorated with beautiful vintage finds. The bed is comfortable.
It's not in the very center of the city, but the transportation is convenient(trams & buses). It's like Bushwick(nowadays) in New York, full with new restaurants, bars, a local, edgy neighborhood. About 15~20 minutes to the center.
It can be a little bit noisy at night. But overall we had a lovely stay at Francesco's place. Would recommend to someone who are interested in living a local Roman life and be away from the tourists noise.
