Double/tripl room close to the Pope

Apartment - Private room · Via Attilio Friggeri, Rome, Lazio 00136, Italy

The Space

The apartment is located in the Balduina quarter, on the fourth floor of a residential block (there is a lift, no fear!) , quite near St.Peter’s and the Vatican City. It is a quiet and safe area where
any kind of shops and facilities are available. It is also well connected to the centre by metro, urban
train and 5 bus lines:

5 minutes to metro A stop CIPRO
6 minutes to St.Peter’s stop by FM3 metro
10 minutes to the Vatican Museums
15 minutes to St.Angel’s Castle
20 minutes to Piazza Navona, Piazza del Popolo, Piazza di Spagna with the Spanish Steps
The Zodiaco panoramic terrace is nearby with one of the most beautiful views in Rome.

The FM3 Balduina station is only 5 minutes away: this train will take you to St Peter’s, the Vatican
City and Porta Portese flee market which is held every Sunday morning. 2 minutes only are needed
to get to Viale Medaglie d’oro where is a taxi rank and 5 bus lines are available.
The same FM3 train reaches Rome from Fiumicino (Leonardo da Vinci) airport.

Our apartment has 3 confortable rooms and 1 bathroom for our guests. There’s a confortable lounge/
dining room where we normally serve continental breakfast, but, on request, we can also prepare a
real English one. Also we can serve dinner with typical Roman specialities cooked by your hosts,
but you’ll have to give a 24 hours notice.

This is a very spacious double room and can become triple or even quadruple . This room also has large windows overlooking the area and is equipped with heating, air
conditioning, hairdryer, TV set, WI-FI. On request a fourth bed can be added or a cot.

Interaction with Guests

Max and I live in the same apartment where our guests are hosted: therefore we are bound to meet each other often during your stay. Infact, we enjoy offering suggestions about the where and when. We both have been working for a long time in jobs in contact with people and we still love doing it.

The Neighborhood

"BALDUINA" is the name of the area where we are: it'(email hidden)ly and very safe quarter: being a residential non touristic area, you will get a touch of the italian lifestyle: here you'll find every kind of facility and, every morning, a small food market.
We like living here, not far from the centre and St.Peter's where we can walk to in about 20 minutes.
Every bus going by will take you to the centre in munutes and don't miss the Zodiaco panoramic terrace, only 15 minutes away on foot: the whole city will be at your feet.

Getting around

Our B&B does not provide private parking: you may safely park your car on the street, but there’s a garage 20 metres away from our front door if you wish to use it. 5 bus lines will take you everywhere, bus 913 will take you to Piazza del Popolo, 990 to St.Peter’s, the urban train FM3 to the flee market, famous Porta Portese and also to the airport. In any case, we offer transfer service to/from Rome airports at cheap rates.

Other Things to Note

The part we like best about running a B&B is sharing with our guests their stay in Rome, listening to their comments, answering to their requests. Every day we learn something from them, about their countries, their cultures, their habits.
They are here today, eager to know, tomorrow we might be in their country....

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We hit the jackpot when we chose Daniela and Max's B&B! These hosts have a very clean, well kept B&B in an area that was perfect for us. It was in a local Rome neighborhood, and had easy access to all public transportation. Our hosts were exceptional - they were very concerned about making sure that our vacation went smoothly, and were more than willing to help us with booking events. They are friendly, and helpful - more like friends than B&B hosts. If I am ever lucky enough to visit Rome again - this is where I well stay!

    Well, we would like to have such an easy going encounter with all our guests as we had with you and do hope someday you will be back. How did your flight go?
    Back to work straight away?
    A big hug.

  • Daniela and Max are super nice!!!!! They are so friendly and always gave us immediate feedback on the information we need. I lost my documents in Rome and Max was kind enough to take me to police station, and Daniela saved my life by giving me her extra luggage to go back home when my luggage exploded one hour before my departure to the airport!!!!! Thanks soooooo much Daniela and MAX!!!!!!!! definitely recommend to anyone who is coming to ROME! The neighbourhood is nice and equipped with good coffee shops and pizza place. The transportation is easy too!

    Hello Yvaine.
    We thank you for your review and hope you got home safely without any further accidents: you really got enough of them while you were here.
    If, as you say, you stayed well with us, we, in return, stayed well with you and this doesn't happen all the time.
    Look after yourself and God bless you.
    Daniela e Max

  • Daniela and Max were both very welcoming and helpful. Max drove us to the B&B from the airport for a small fee. The building is about a 2 minute walk away from a great pizzeria and a small supermarket, and about a half hour walk from the Vatican. There's also a bus route close by. The room itself was spacious and clean. We had a great time in our stay in Rome, and would recommend Daniela and Max's B&B to any other travellers.

    Hi Rachel.
    Daniela and I have been very happy to have you at Sapore di Casa and it seems that you enjoyed your stay: actually this is what we try to do, making our guests feel at home and we are glad when tehy do.
    All the best.
    Daniela e Max

  • Daniela and Max were very kind hosts who helped my friend and I familiarize ourselves with as well as navigate Rome. Our room was comfortable and clean, and the bathroom was in good condition though we had to share it with two other rooms. We were located a short bus ride from the Vatican, but commuting was easy and the bus stop is a 5 minute walk from the b&b. Overall we enjoyed our stay with Daniela and Max and definitely recommend it!

    Response from Daniela:

    Thanks Alice for your good review. We do try our best to make our guests feel at home. Yes, it would be nicer if every room had its own private bathroom, but, after all, this is a B&B and most of them have no bathrooms en suite. I remeber travelling throughout Great Britain and Scotland where we were sharing a bathroom in every B&B, but also we were enjoying the hospitality and friendship of the landlords. That's what we are trying to reproduce here. All the best. Daniela e Max

  • Daniela and Max were so welcoming! Not only was it a great price but they helped by giving directions and letting us use their own computer to let our parents back in the U.S. know that we were alive and well. It was the perfect cozy place to come back to after the business of exploring Rome. So easy to get to by train or bus we had no trouble figuring out the transportation system and the area around the B&B is safe and welcoming. Me and my two friends welcomed a break from all the hostels we stayed in and the homemade bakery treats in the morning were just icing on top of the cake. We all agree, Daniela and Max made our trip even better than expected!

Hi. My name is Daniela and, together with Max, I will welcome you upon your arrival in Rome. I like my job, it gives me the opportunity to meet people from all over the world, sharing thoughts, different lifestyles, travel experiences, every kind of culture. It’s like being on a beautiful journey every day…, I wish it was a real one!!! We wish to make our guests feel like at home, even so far away from it. We will advise them about our city, how to move around, what to see apart from the obvious, what and where to eat: Italian cooking is well known and here I’m the cook: our guests may have dinner on the premises, prepared just for them as if they had been invited to eat in a normal Italian family. See you, but in Italy we say CIAO!
