About this listing
I offer a fold out couch in the livingroom of my 2 bedroom apartment. The apt has a fully-equipped shared kitchen and bath. The neighborhood is easily reached and has great restaurants and pubs/bars. We are just a 10 min tram ride to the center.
I offer a fold out couch in the livingroom of my 2 bedroom apartment (shared with 2 non-smokers and a dog in 1 room and other airbnb guests or friends in the 2nd room). I speak English & Italian (and some Spanish). The apt has a fully equipped shared kitchen, bath and washing machine. The couch folds out to a twin sized bed - it only fits 1 person. I provide all necessary linens (sheets, towels etc) and have an iron/ironing board, hair dryer, a straightening iron and several plug adapters that you can use as needed.
The apt is just 650m (less than 1/2 a mile) from Trastevere Station (approx. 8 min walk) and 1.6km (just under a mile) from the "Piramide" Metro station (approx. 20 min walk). There are numerous buses which connect us to various parts of the city, a tram-line which goes directly to the historic center and an above ground train which takes you straight to St. Peter's and the Vatican or out to Fiumicino, Leonardo da Vinci airport. There is ample street parking and the building has a doorman and is quite safe.
You are welcome to use the kitchen area during your stay but please keep food out of Kilo's reach.
You can also use the washing machine (after 7pm to cut down on the electricity costs) for €4 per load. I provide the laundry soap and fabric softener.
Interaction with Guests
If you need advice on where to go, what to see or where to eat- feel free to ask! I'm happy to help you whenever possible. My work schedule is erratic so I am often in and out throughout the day but I am happy to help you out or to leave you to your privacy, as you prefer. :)
Because my work schedule changes frequently, I generally do not accept bookings more than 2 months in advance, but I am happy to answer your questions at any time.
The neighborhood is located along the Tiber river and has numerous bars/cafes, pubs, restaurants, dry cleaners/laundromats, banks and grocery stores within easy walking distance. There is also a great bike path/running path which runs along the Tiber starting just a 3 minute walk down the road from us.
We are 2 blocks from the #8 tram line which takes you directly to the heart of the historic city center. We are also well connected by several bus lines to various parts of the city and the nearest metro is Piramide (metro B) just a 15-20 min walk away.
Other Things to Note
My dog is a part of the family and is very friendly (he will most likely try to cuddle with you and he will definitely try to sit on the bed with you even though he is 30kg and doesn't always recognise it). If you have allergies, or are afraid of dogs, or even if you just don't like dogs, this is not the best place for you to choose.
Please don't feed anything to the dog (he's got a lot of allergies) or leave food where he can reach it.
No smoking in the house.
Please keep the door locked (with the keys) at all times as the pup knows how to open it and will go on unauthorised walkabout if given the chance.
PLEASE do not lose the keys - a copy of the set of keys costs about €130 and takes a week to make.
