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.

The apartment was fantastic! It was in a cool area with lots of good non-touristy coffee shops, restaurants, and bars. It is a little further walk from the tourist sites (i.e. the colloseum is a 35 minute walk away), but there are busses that go right there as well. The central train station is under 20 minutes away.
The flat was really clean and the kitchen was fully stocked with cooking tools, condiments, etc. The bathroom had lots of shampoos and conditioners. The WIFI was very fast, and the air conditioning worked great. The balcony is great for hanging clothes (bring your own clothesline and pins).
We were there with a baby, and Simona was nice enough to leave us with a bassinette.
Simona was also able to answer any questions we had over WhatsApp. She even booked us a taxi back to the airport.
When I visit the bnb, Simona was not in Rome. But she left maps and tips for touring. And her friend are waiting for us to explain the house. Good location, wide space, air conditioned room, well equipped cooking tools.
L'appartement de Simona était tout à fait conforme à sa description et aux photos publiées sur le site. Le quartier, populaire, est très vivant la nuit et nous nous y sommes toujours senti en sécurité.
Le + : Simona a laissé un lecteur CD et de bon CD perso et des guides de voyage!
Simona was an exceptional host. She really put an effort into making our visit to Rome comfortable. She was very prompt with her communication. Her apartment was very big and comfortable and stocked with everything we needed. We were having cell phone troubles so she even left us a cell phone to use while we were there. At first, we were a bit concerned about the neighborhood but we grew to really like it's character. It's location is great with lots of supermarkets and very convenient transportation options that bring you straight to the attractions. I would definitely stay there again.
Très bon accueil de Simona. Son appart est très bien pour un couple et il y a tout ce qu'il faut pour passer un bon séjour. L'appart correspond aux photos publiées. Très agréable de prendre son petit café italien sur le balcon le matn :-).
Le quartier San Lorenzo est assez éloigné du centre historique mais il est proche de la station Termini et il y a quelques lignes de bus et tram à 3min de l'appart ce qui est pratique pour les déplacements. Le quartier est assez animé le soir mais pas d'inquiétude il fait très calme dans l'appart et on entend pas le bruit de la rue. Merci pour ce séjour:-)
My girlfriend and I had stayed for 4 days in Rome and could not have been happier with our decision to stay at Curacao! The neighbourhood is perfect and comes alive at night no matter what day of the week. We were lucky enough to stumble into a Jazz festival that was happening down the street. Everything everything close by or a few bus stops away and very easy to navigate! With the addition to Simona leaving us with maps and directions to everything we needed (Bus routes, Supermarkets, Bars, Food, etc.)
Because of the convenience of the location we were able to see all the major tourist spots within a day allowing us to really submerge ourselves within the sights and sounds of Rome in the remaining days. This made us feel like residence to the neighbourhood rather than tourists.
Needless to say our stay was fantastic and the apartment exceeded expectations!
Thank you Simona!
Très bonne adresse. Simona est sympa et bien organisée, l'appartement est impeccable. Le quartier est animé par les italiens qui y font la fête. Mais l'appartement est "côté cour" donc on peut participer à la fête, sans être dérangé par le bruit! Le plus: la terrasse est vraiment idéale pour prendre un verre après une journée chargée dans Rome.
C'est un peu en dehors du centre mais un bus permet d'y être en +/- 20 min. A recommander donc!
