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).
Beautifully designed apartment, cosy and clean. Excellent atmosphere, great vibe. Thank you Francesco for being so kind and helpful!
Francesco's loft was lovely and well styled. It gives a good taste to living 'local', closed to street of bars and restaurants away from tourists. There was a cute bar downstairs for quick breakfast and the girls at the counter became our default 'concierge'. The room does gets noisy in the morning due to the corner location to main road (it is part of city living). Our hot water was not working well on first night but Francesco was quick to response to any queries we had and giving instructions to assist. We had some difficulty getting to the location on the first day. It is also not as easy getting public transport from here on weekends. Give some time to catch the buses/trams nearby. At other times cabs to and fro this place are reasonable priced. It is not the most convenient location from the 'tourist' spots of Rome but I love that we experienced an area that is quirky and lived in a typical Rome apartment that has been updated for modern living.
Francesco was very cooperative and helpful in arranging the place!
The apartment is nicely furnished and has a good vibe. The downside is that due to the traffic outside it is at times noisy and this continuous often through the night. A more sound proof glazing may help.
All in all this was a pleasurable experience and I could recommend booking here.
We never met Francesco himself but his place is amazing. Super stylish but comfortable. Francesco has fantastic taste!
Pigneto is a very up and coming and hip area (not many tourists around). There are some really cool coffee-shops/ bars in the area.
Great host and lovely apartment. I wasn't bothered by the traffic noise as it helped having the fan on. The only thing that really frustrated me about Rome in general was the difficulty in getting around with public transport - but I am a Londoner so anything more than a 5 minute wait is too much for me. Thanks for a great stay.
Had a lovely stay at Francesco's apartment. Comfortable bed. Nicely decorated. Bit noisy in the morning but it meant we got up and enjoyed the city! 3 of us stayed here and the airbed worked well. Great tram link to the centre of town. Would certainly recommend staying here.
Host & apt are great! Very good!
Thanks for everything!
Francesco's place is very cool. We had a relaxing stay. Slept really well in his comfortable bed. Pigneto neighborhood is a lot of fun as right around the corner are bars and good food. We found the tram and bus system to be very convenient. Francesco wasn't around because of his busy acting career but he was attentive to our suggestions and very helpful. I'm sure future guests will enjoy his place. Ciao ciao!
Me and my friend had a great stay at Francesco's flat. It's very cool, and I've been thinking about stealing his idea for bookshelves since the first time I entered the apartment. One of us used the bedroom and one of us the inflatable bed, both was very comfortable. The flat is on a street with traffic all through the night, so if you're a light sleeper, don't forget your earplugs.
Francesco was not in Rome when we arrived or left, but the check in/out was not a problem.
I loved Pigneto, a real haven away from the tourist masses in the more central parts of Rome. For eating, I can recommend Rosti, and don't miss I Porchettini if you like your pork.
Excellent place, though a big noisy.
Very cosy and excellent atmosphere, and Francesco was very helpful!
