About this listing
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! We're Alice e Gabriele, thirty-year-old freelance journalists.
We 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.
We often move by foot.
The apartment has two bedrooms, two bathrooms and one common area: a living room / kitchen with tv and breakfast corner.
Around the house there're PICTURES by my (Alice) brother, young emergent artist (look for Jacopo Rinaldi portfolio).
In front of you, a typical italian FIRE STATION, builded in 1933!
We travel a lot, so: only for you there's always one BIG DOUBLE BEDROOM with PRIVATE BATHROOM (and a typical italian whirpool ;-) that you can see in the pictures, but when we're out of Roma it's available also our SMALLER DOUBLE BEDROOM (with bathroom outside the room).
So there're 3 possibilities: SHARE the apartment with us or other guests or take ALL for you! Here you can book the big room.
Guest have access to living room / tv and kitchen / breakfast corner. You can have breakfast when you prefer, we place a first "WELCOME BREAKFAST". A COFFEE MOKA will always be ready on the hot plate.
Interaction with Guests
This is our home, our presence during a guest's stay depends on our regular LIFE (work, study, family, friends...)
About this neighborhood, Rione Monti, we love that, just crossing Via Nazionale, full of people and trendy shops, you enter in a PARALLEL UNIVERSE, the ancient part of Roma 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, with OUR CAR!, or the municipal one (its parking is very close in Via Venezia).
Other Things to Note
Photos show the changes of the house... and the works of friends and family! In the living room there's "the corner of books" from my grandma's house: if you like, take an italian book, as a different souvenir :)
CHECK-IN and OUT times are flexible, it means that we can decide them together. So communicate us your plan and we'll try to satisfy it!
We allow PETS.
We don't have rules against SMOKING because we're smoker (tobacco, less smelly than cigarettes!). Anyway we love to keep the rooms always aerated and ask you to do the same. If you aren't smokers please tell us and we'll avoid smoking in the areas in common. Grazie!
The apartment was clean and spacious with a great bathroom as you can see on a picture. Also the location was really good, close to downtown. Alice and Gabriele were really nice and very helpful. They understood when our train was delayed, and waited quite a while. Thanks for the wonderful 4days in Rome. I hope to see you again someday :)
Alice and Gabriele are very nice ! Their home is artistic, clean and convenient. It's not far from Termini and there is a taxi stop nearby. We like their home very much! And there are lots of food!
Quartier qui correspondait à nos attentes.
Chambre et salle de bains larges et confortables.
Nous avons peu vu les hôtes (à l'accueil et au départ).
Surpris de la présence d'autres occupants de l'appartement.
A l'arrière, caserne de pompiers active... exercices dès le matin...
dear Marguerite, happy that neighborhood and room met your appreciation, at least! but sincerely we don't understand why this review doesn't reflect at all your behavior when you were here. why not just tell/write us in the moment that there're so many problems?
for the record we'd like to say some things.
first of all, on the description is specified, being the house where we normally live, that if, when and how we are present, depends on many variables (work, study, family etc.) on the first days I was out Roma for my mother's birthday, then I was sick, then my cousin's wedding, then came a friend from Budapest to visit us, then a course in Torino (and therefore the courtesy to host my professor from Brasil in my room, a nice person, plus of your age).. and you were aware of everything. we understand that it was a particularly busy week but this is the point, with us you weren't "surprised" at all.
feel sorry for the barracks, but we've never hidden it. with the windows closed, however, there's no discomfort.
thanks for your review.
Thank you so much for having us at your wonderful home! Alice and Gabriel were great hosts sharing both their home and city with us. The building itself is stunning and full of character.
The room itself was beautiful and came with an en suite bathroom with wet room and jacuzzi bath. They thought of everything and had breakfast prepared for us on the first day and leaflets on things to do. This was our first Air bnb experience and it definitely won't be our last.
It's a 10minute walk from Termini station and buses stop right outside the apartment.
We fell in love with Rome and we can't thank Alice and Gabriel enough for their hospitality.
Alice & Gabriel were great.
Me hicieron sentir en casa.
Muy limpio departamento.
La ubicación es muy buena a unas cuadras de estación Termini de tren a unas cuadras de la Fontana di Trevi así como de Monumento a Vittorio Emanuele II.
