The apartment is in an 19th century restored building, along one of the most fashionable street of the city, and the oldest neighborhood, Rione Monti, just right on its side. The possibility to live the two souls of Roma, La Grande Bellezza!
Ciao! I’m Alice, I’m 31, I’m a free lance journalist. I live in a nice apartment in the ANCIENT HEART of Roma: Rione Monti. Close to almost everything: Termini station, Esposizioni's Palace, Quirinale Palace, Venezia square, COLOSSEO, Foro Romano... sorrounded by every CONNECTION you like: bus, train, subway, taxi, bike/scooter/car sharing and rental.
I often move by foot.
The apartment has two bedrooms, two bathrooms and one common area: a living room / kitchen with tv and breakfast corner. Only for you one LARGE DOUBLE ROOM with PRIVATE BATHROOM (and a typical italian whirpool ;-)
Around the house there're PICTURES by my brother, young emergent artist (look for "Jacopo Rinaldi portfolio").
In front of us, a typical italian FIRE STATION, builded in 1933!
You SHARE the apartment with me.
Guest have access to living room / tv and kitchen / breakfast corner. I serve a first "WELCOME BREAKFAST", then the guests are free to have it as they wish. Anyway a COFFEE MOKA will always be ready on the hot plate.
This is my home, my presence during a guest's stay depends on my normal LIFE (work, family, friends...)
About my neighborhood i love that if you just cross Via Nazionale, full of people and trendy shops, you enter in a PARALLEL UNIVERSE, the ancient part of Rome where there's silence, nice shops, markets, little streets and squares and the Colosseo's view just in the background (you can see it especially walking on Via Dei Serpenti).
PUBLIC TRANSIT is everywhere:
BUS stop just downstairs
2 METRO stations: Repubblica, line A, (it's the closest, at the beginning of Via Nazionale, up to the big rounded square with a fountain in the center), Cavour, line B, (going straight inside Rione Monti).
TAXI station is just outside the building.
The PARKING situation is the weak point: being the ancient part of Roma, Rione Monti is protected by a limited traffic system that is very uncomfortable for who has a car without permession to enter: the closest parking area is in Piazza della Repubblica and it's little.
On the contrary if you have a RENTAL CAR you can get into and Via Genova is a near and good street to park.
There's also the CAR SHARING option and its parking is very close: Via Venezia.
The photos are a bit changed: go back to 2 years ago when the house was really new! Now is a bit more full of objects from my grandma's house. if you like, take an italian book, as a different souvenir :)
Alice apartment is beautiful and very comfortable. Our room was very nice, with lots of space to put our things, the bathroom incredible, with the jacuzzi. It was very relaxing after long days visiting Rome. Alice was very friendly with us, gave us great advise on restaurants, shops and places to visit. She was very helpfull all the time. Ah! The apartment is really well located, and although Via Nazionale is very crowded you don't hear any noise because the apartment has windows to the back part of the building. I totally would recomend it.
Alice's apartment is perfect for those looking to be located in a non touristy area but close to all major sites. A beautiful apartment in an easy to reach location. Alice is very obliging she even provided a recipe for pasta after I mentioned that my cooking class fell through.
The only consideration is the fire brigade testing their equipment at 8am (some times earlier) everyday. I didn't mind; it became my morning alarm but if you don't like/plan on rising early be warned.
Loved my stay at Alice's over all.
Sophie thanks for your honest review:) it's true, unfortunately, all the windows of the house overlook the fire station (which, however, being old, is impressive, and there's also a beautiful pine), but I wanted to say that, as for noise, definitely their positions protect us from that of via Nazionale that is worse! obviously with the windows open you can hear every engine or alarm, the "brigade's tests" the worst!^^' even the speaker that says what kind of emergency is.. or nicer things as the voices in dialect of men and women who do the night shift:), but I wanted to ensure that when the windows are closed doesn't pass a sound. Fortunately for us, being a first floor, home is cool in summer and warm in winter:) Buona fortuna per tutto Sophie, ciao!
I have spend one full month in march in Alices apartment. The room is spaceous and very nice. The bathroom is big and has a shower and also a whirlpool.
The apartment is located very central. Even I didn't spend a lot of time with Alice, I always felt welcome. Only as a non-smoker in a smoker apartmant I had to be a bit more flexible. Alice was a friendly and polite host and I have spend a wonderful time in Rome.
Alice nous a accueillis chaleureusement dans son bel appartement confortable et très joli. La chambre est très agréable et la salle de bain attenante très moderne et pratique.
Alice nous a offert un petit déjeuner varié et très bien présenté comme à l'hôtel.
Elle est prête à rendre service et à n'hésite pas à téléphoner à ses relations pour fournir un renseignement.
Une adresse à ne pas oublier et à transmettre à qui veut s'offrir un week-end à Rome.

위치도 좋고요, 주인장이 엄청 친절해요. 그리고 화장실이 딸려있고 조용하고 아침도 줍니다. 깔끔하고 인테리어도 괜찮습니다. 정말 추천합니다.
I loved my stay in Alice's place. She was very friendly and helpful with everything. The apartment is very well located, everything worked as expected and all her tips were very useful as well. I do recommend Alice's place for a visit to Rome and I will definitely come back to her place.
