  • One really couldn't ask for a better host: Giacomo greets you with a quick smile and a contagious laugh. His English is excellent and he goes out of his way to make your stay a pleasant one - providing a map, thorough directions and recommendations for food, sites and activities. And while Zen House is slightly removed from the center of town - this also gives you the opportunity to experience Roma apart from the buzz of tourism (and isn't that why we travel?).
    What you will find at Giacomo's is lively discussion, a place to unwind with the cats after a full day of site-seeing, and if you're lucky - a home-cooked meal!!
    Thanks for the memories, Giacomo!

  • Giacomo is what you expect from someone in the airbnb community ..... and MUCH more. I have had great experiences in all my bookings with airbnb but this time in Rome with Giacomo has been by far THE BEST. The place has an especial atmosfere. It is not luxurios but Giacomo makes you feel like you are at home, or at some of your best friends' house. And he has the MOST beautiful cat in the whole word. Rome in the ZEN HOUSE was Purrrrrfect.

  • Gostei muito de ficar na Zen House… o Giacomo é muito simpático e atencioso… eu não costumo tomar café em casa mas ele fez questão (quando descobriu que eu não tomava café pela manhã) de comprar um croisant para mim… grazie Giacomo.

    Simples, barato, confortável e limpo.

  • Очень приятное впечатление от проживания в Zen House у Джакомо! Он очень радушный и приветливый хозяин, все рассказал и показал. Там есть общая кухня и гостиная, где можно поболтать с хозяевами и другими гостями. Все очень уютно, чисто и красиво. У Джакомо живут 2 прикольных кота ))) Квартира расположена довольно близко от исторического центра - я дошла пешком за 20 мин до Колизея (это была очень приятная прогулка в отличную погоду). Но можно ездить и на автобусе. Очень рекомендую это место - цена и качество отлично соответствуют!
    Giacomo's Zen House is really a very nice place and he's a very nice host! Located is pretty close to Collosseum - I walked there just not longetpr than 20 min. There are some pizzerias, stores, farmiacies etc close to the place. I recommend to everybody to stay at this place! Thank you so much Giacomo! Hoping to see you soon again!

  • Fui por 3 días, Giacomo es un excelente anfitrión, me acompañó hasta la parada del bus para ir al centro y me explicó donde bajarme, etc. Me dio un mapa de Roma. Estaba siempre atento a las necesidades que pudiera tener. Una noche cocinó un exquisito risotto y unas bruschettas, que compartió con todos los huéspedes que estabamos allí. La casa está muy bien, todo limpio. La ubicación es buena. Muy recomendable. Grazie per tutto Giacomo!

  • No es que tenga nombre de mago (Merlin), es un mago!!! Sencillamente nos sentimos como en casa y nos aconsejó y explicó los mejores lugares para visitar. El secreto de roma mejor guardado es la Zen House. Sin duda, lugar para volver! Muchas gracias Giacomo!! Hasta pronto!
