About this listing
Heart of historical Center, few steps from Piazza Navona and Campo dei Fiori, balcony overlooking Piazza Pasquino, cozy apartment 1st floor of XVIth century bldg, wooden frescoed ceilings, wifi-ADSL, independ heating, fully equipped kitchen, A/C.
The position, among the most interesting in the city (very lively during the day, but quiet enough at night: lots of restaurant but no disco bars), the fact that it is fully independent for the entrance , heating and hot water, the fact that it is a true "inhabited" apartment: I used to live there, I have organized and set the spaces, and not much has changed since then.
The apartment is simply but fully equipped: air conditioning, fast ADSL wifi, washing machine, microwave, fridge, hairdryer, TV, equipped kitchen. The heating and hot water are gas-operated, so you may have unlimited of both of them. Upon your arrival, you will also always find the basics for the breakfast. Groceries and markets are 50 meters away.
Interaction with Guests
As much as needed and requested, nothing more. I like to interact, to speak English and enjoy meeting new people, but I live somewhere else (I used to live in the apartment, but I moved three years ago)
You will have an independent entrance, so you will not be subject to any annoying interactions/remarks with and from neighbors, enjoying full privacy.
The neighborhood is however very easy going, young and lively.
Getting around is easy: there are many buses going up and down with central station and St. Peter. The fastest ones are nn. 40 and 64. Connection with the underground is 10 minutes away. Any tourist sightseeing in the city center is, however, within walking distance. Just in front of the apartment, there is a bike rental (you can rent a bike in the morning and returning in the evening).
Lejligheden ligger i det mest hyggelige område i Rom og har den bedste placering hvis man vil bo i mit byen. Andrea var altid hurtig med svar hvis der var noget vi havde brug for at vide.... Vil man bo midt i Rom er dette en lejlighed jeg stærkt kan anbefale.
We had a great time at Andrea's apartment. The location was perfect and it was lovely to be a part of our own little piazza.
The apartment is quite dark but it was helpful early in the morning when you're trying to sleep. You just need to turn more lights on.
The internet worked perfectly and Andrea was good when we were delayed at the airport.
The cozy apartment was just as described. It is right in Piazza Pasquino and one alley from Piazza Novona.
Great location for visiting ancient Rome. Vatican is 15-20 minute walk but apartment is near a main bus route. My wife and I got a 3 day hop on / off bus pass, so used that in addition to walking. We had great weather last week of June. 90 everyday so the bedroom AC was nice.
The apartment just has a portable AC unit so we just used it for sleeping.
Very adequate. Definitely recommend to use this apartment. It made our first trip to Rome memorable
Andrea's apartment is situated on a vibrant street close to many of the major attractions in Rome. Despite an initial mix-up with his cleaning service prior to our arrival, we found the apartment to be comfy, clean, and inviting. Andrea was very communicative and helpful, and made sure our stay in his home went smoothly. We would gladly stay at Andrea's again on another visit!
Andrea's apartment was perfect for us. Brilliant location so clise to many of Rome's best sites. You can walk everywhere. We will be back.
We loved our stay at Andrea's apartment. Its location is just perfect for the best parts of the city, great sights and restaurants and easy access for places further afield. The apartment is comfortable and well equipped. And the café across the road looked after us beautifully with excellent breakfasts. Andrea was very helpful in sorting access to the apartment and our departure. We recommend his apartment wholeheartedly, and will definitely be back ourselves.

This was our first Airbnb stay as a family of four. Arrangements for key pick up were exactly as described and everything was ready for us and very much appreciated after a long flight. The area is vibrant, and we felt imbedded in the city of Rome. What a pleasure to be able to walk everywhere.

About the Host, Andrea
Hi, I live in Rome, working as lawyer. The apartment I am renting used to be my flat, belonging to my family since XVII century, and I love it very much (and I will get back there, at some point). I am not doing that as a profession but mostly for the fun of it, meeting people. I love that people may have the best time in Rome, which is a quite difficult and confusing city, where some good advice and tricks can really make the difference: living as Romans do could not only more amusing, but also making your life here easier. I would love to answer to any question you may have, or to give any advice you may need.
