The house is small but very warm and cozy. I have personally painted the walls and the furniture and I have made a lot of work to fix it and make it more comfortable. There are many decorative objects that I bought all around the world, my favourite music, my books and lots of souvernirs that my guests left over the years. I love thinking that the continuous flow of people from many countries since 2012 has filled the spaces with energy and warmth.

The space

Curaçao is a two-room house located in the heart of San Lorenzo, in Via degli Ausoni, close to Piazza dei Sanniti. It is located on the fourth and last floor (with elevator) of a historical building of the 20s, and it's sunny. The apartment comprises a double bedroom with an inner bathroom with shower, a large living room with kitchenette and a peninsula in stone and the hall. In the living room you find a comfortable sofa bed and a table with chairs. The kitchenette has stove, refrigerator, sink, washing machine, microwave and everything you need for cooking. The living room has large French windows that open onto a beautiful balcony overlooking the bell tower of Piazza degli Aurunci. The room is equipped with air conditioning. You can use internet wi fi 24 hours a day. A cradle is available if you need it.
Ideal both for a romantic couple, with or without a child, or two friends. Double glazing and overlooking on the inner courtyard make the house very quiet despite the busy and noisy atmosphere of the neighborhood.
San Lorenzo is one of the most fashionable neighborhoods of the capital city, characterized by the presence of the University that makes it a meeting point for young people, it's like an outdoor multi-ethnic theater. In its streets you can still find craftsman's laboratories of the last century mixed up with trendy bars that open and close constantly chasing the latest trends.
Just next door on the street, there is the historic bar "Celestine" of the early '900, today become a staple of the nightlife of San Lorenzo. As written on the Routard Guide, "the more pleasant and intense atmosphere that you can breathe". Few meters from the gate, Piazza dei Sanniti, you find "Pommidoro", the historic restaurant attended by Pasolini and other Roman writers in the 70s. In Piazza degli Aurunci, every morning, takes place a picturesque open-air market where you can buy fresh fish and other natural food. San Lorenzo is 2 km far from Termini railway station, key point for transports, and not far from the Tiburtina railway station, the new main railway station of Rome. Moreover, it is connected to the center with several lines of buses and trams.

My boyfriend and I had a great stay at Simona's flat - it was clean, bright and a nice walk to major attractions in Rome, about 30 minutes to Colloseum. The flat had everything we could need to make our stay as comfortable as possible. We couldn't recommend it more. Thanks Simona!

Simona is a good, patient host. Her place is clean and neat at a great location. It is about 20 min walk away from Roma Termini and has convenient bus and tram stops nearby, we had no trouble getting around. The neighborhood has many restaurants and bars nearby so we could have different meals each evening for a week. The balcony was nice to spend time in the mornings and the evenings. The place was generally quiet except for Friday and Saturday nights, where it got a bit noisy from the bar next door on the ground floor. Although not noisy enough to keep us from sleeping or waking up during the night. All in all, we had a great time at Simona's place and would definitely recommend it.

Simona and Francesco were amazing hosts! Unfortunately Simona was out of town at the time of our stay but Francesco took care of us and of the check in and all was good. The apartment is perfect for a couple and can fit also three people, especially for young people because of its great location in an alive and vigorous neighborhood San Lorenzo- one bus away from all touristic and historic sights and walking distance from many great bars and resturants. The apartment has a nice small balcony which we enjoyed a lot and it is very cozy and romantic at night. AC and Wi Fi were great, we had towels and beddings ready for us, felt really like a hotel experience. We had a great time and enjoyed Rome even more thanks to this beautiful apartment.

Simona's place is fantastic. It is located about a 20 minute walk from Termini and within 10 minutes of me booking Simona had sent me full instructions on how to get from the airport to the apartment. The apartment itself is clean and tidy and has a lovely balcony which is really nice to sit out on. I had been travelling for 4 weeks when I got to Simona's so I was fed up with eating out every night so it was great that the kitchen had all the basic ingredients (oil, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper etc) which meant I could make myself a salad each evening. The supermarket is just around the corner. I wasnt very well one day whilst in rome so ended up staying most of the day at the apartment and it was such a nice place to be. The area is populated by students and there is a bar downstairs but you cannot hear it from the apartment. I like walking so I walked everywhere from the apartment (about 20 minutes to the colosseum) but Simona had left detailed instructions on which bus to take to get to each tourist attraction. She had also left a list of recommended restaurants in the local area. Overall I would definitely recommend Simona's place!

Sono una ragazza di 34 anni, socievole e estroversa. Amo conoscere persone nuove e viaggiare. Le mie passioni sono la musica, il cinema, la letteratura e il cibo! Vorrei far sentire i miei ospiti come se fossero a casa loro e dargli tutti consigli e l'aiuto necessario per soggiornare a Roma nel modo più piacevole possibile. Quando viaggio mi piace camminare molto e immergermi nella vita dei luoghi che visito. Scelgo sempre di soggiornare in luoghi economici, ma confortevoli, accoglienti e soprattutto puliti.
