My romantic and cozy flat is close to Termini and Tiburtina Station and, if you like walking, you can reach the Colosseum in 20-25 minutes. It is well connected by buses and Metro and if you land at Ciampino or Fiumicino airport, you can easily reach it using the Leonard Express train that goes to Termini. It measures 40 sm and is perfect for 2 people, but you are welcome also if you are alone. It is beautiful, originally decorated with vintage and Kartell furniture and it is extremely private. It has a 1 and a half type bed very comfy, an equipped kitchen, a bathroom and a little living room with sofa! It is silent and sunny to enjoy the beautiful sky of Rome. Sure, I'll give you clean towels and blankets! You have wifi internet connection, television and washing machine. As I am living in the same area I can always help you and give any suggestion or advices you need.
The area (San Lorenzo) is lovely. This is a central and an historical neighborhood of Rome, well known for its typical atmosphere made of little boutiques, artists and students. If you want to eat the best pizza in town you have to come here and so if you want to enjoy the night with cinema, concerts or simply to have a drink. San Lorenzo never sleeps. During the day you have some nice places where you can sit and drink a good coffee or a cappuccino and just relax in a familiar and roman ambience. Give a look to my guide of the area, you will love to stay in San Lorenzo!

This is my own little apt so the main thing I ask is to respect it and to leave everything as you find it. You can enjoy it, listen music, watching tv and movies you can read books if you find something that interest you. I also recommend you to not disturb the neighbors please... have a good stay! And please write me a review after your stay. It is very important for other future guests. Thank you
I Don't know where to start from, but Gio's flat is no strange for me, this is my second trip to Rome, and my second stay at Gio's flat, and as usual Gio is a perfect host, she is so nice and a great helper, she is always there whenever you need her.
few days before my arrival, she contacted me for the timing and arrival at her flat, as she was waiting for me downstairs with the same warm smile and welcoming eyes. The flat is perfect, cozy, very clean and warm, everything as described in her profile, did I mention that one of the best thing in Gio's flat is there is sun everywhere, the front and back window provide an extra nice light and sun during the cold days, this is one of the perfect things about her flat. The bathroom is clean and bright, and the hot water is an additional perfect non stop thing.
The neighborhood is young, safe and you can almost find everything around you, during the heavy raining days, you can get all the items for a decent fresh home made cooking from the small market near the church, vegetables, meat, chicken or sea food, all fresh and just couple of hundred meters walking, not to mention the restaurants, pizzerias, bakery and grocery shops just few meters around the house. Did I mention the nice small winery at the corner =D
So, Gio's flat is perfect for a real Rome vacation, plus the termini is just 10 mins walk from home where you can take the train or any other transport to all over Italy.
Rome is my beloved vacation spot, for 2 years now, every year I take few days to fly to Rome, and Gio's flat is my second home away from my home. As promised Gio, wait for me the next year.
The reservation was canceled 70 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
My experience with Gio was great. I was in Rome for an internship for 2 months. My office was right around the block from the flat so it was perfect for me. It looks just the pictures. Everything was cleaned before I got there - bathroom, floors, bed sheets, towels, etc. Cable TV did not work for my stay but I don't watch much TV so it wasn't a problem. WiFi internet was great. It's a great location in a great neighborhood. Close to main train station Termini (10 min walk) as well as walking distance (for me at least) to all the main attractions.
I also liked that Gio didn't check up on me or come to the flat unless I had a problem, which I had none. I like my privacy. She was very helpful if you need help with anything at the place or around the area. I am happy that I stayed here.
Gio's flat is LOVELY, very spacious, very stylish, nice and cool even when it was 30 degrees outside, and in a really great and lively area with a Carrefour supermarket right next door. The Cimitero del Verano is 5min walk and absolutely worth a visit if you're into cemeteries. It is STUNNING. Would definitely stay here again :)
J'ai passé un très bon séjour (une semaine) dans l'appartement de Giovanna ; on s'y sent très bien, et il est spacieux pour une personne. Giovanna parle très bien le français, et elle est facilement joignable et disponible en cas de petit pépin. Le quartier de San Lorenzo est calme dans la journée et très sympathique le soir. Beaucoup de commerces à proximité. San Lorenzo est situé près de la gare Termini (on peut y aller à pied), et donc un peu excentré par rapport au centre historique, il faut par exemple marcher 20 minutes jusqu'à la station de métro la plus proche (Victor Emmanuel ou Termini), en revanche le tramway numéro 3, très pratique (il dessert notamment le Colisée ou la Villa Borghese) est à deux pas de l'appartement. Mais Rome, de toute façon, est une ville qui se découvre à pied !
Gio è stata molto gentile. Suo apartamento è confortevole e si trova in una zona molto piacevole, vicino a due stazioni della metro. Tutto è andato bene e mi piacerebbe affitare questo posto una altra volta.
We didn't meet Gio personally but her friend let us in and was very accommodating about meeting us very late (12:30 at night!) .
The apartment was cool even in the heat of a Rome summer. Overall it was as described (except there was no imac as in the pictures - not that we needed to use it).
Do note that the bed is a bit small - twin size I believe so it wasn't super comfortable for two people to sleep on it and one person ended up on the cot that was included. If you like to sleep very close it should be ok, otherwise consider that one of you may need to take the cot for comforts sake. The neighborhood is out of the way but has a lot of cool student type activites on the weekends, street fairs, bars etc. There was some street noise but pretty typical for any big city with the windows open.
