The tips of the owner:
The area is very lively, full of restaurants, some other economic trends. In the pedestrian area of the district there is a market place opened up at 13 while in the evening the area comes alive for the presence of young people who attend the university and clubs where many local artists and musicians perform. Famous venues are the Circolo degli Artisti and Old Bar Necci Via Fanfulla da Lodi, the street where the director Pasolini shot several some of his movies.
air conditioning € 5 a day
Pets allowed (prior arrangement)
Perfect room and kind host. It is very close to tram station and bus station. Tram is more useful i think. However, tram has circulate route so we had to transfer to the metro at termini. But many tourist places are far from home so really tired and annoying to come back to home.. We have never came home back directly because not found any right bus stops. Thats why we went out to see night view only once. But the room was great and its near supermarkets.
Alberta fetched us from the Roma Termini and it was so delightful to meet her. She showed us around and explained some things while driving us to the apartment. In the apartment, she also explained everything from the internet to the amenities that are provided. Very thoughtful and considerate host who tries to accommodate to all our needs - including bringing a weighing scale for us to weigh our luggage before our flight! The studio is neat and clean, but there is a lack of utensils. It was weird that we had to reimburse her a bit for using the aircon but she explained that it was because it was just the start of summer so it wouldn't be that hot, so be prepared if you're coming during this period. Overall, great stay in a great neighbourhood with lots of markets and little bars nearby!
Alberta is very kind and helpful host. She picked us up from Termini station, so we don't need to look for apartment on our own. She explained everything about apartment and how to reach Termini/city center/Vatican by trams and buses. The apartment was clean and tidy. I recommenced stay here!
Alberta's place was exactly as it looks in the photos and is described in the text. Clean and fully equipped with whatever someone would need.
It is easily accessed with public transportation and there is supermarket in the same street. Alberta explained in details everything about transportation, the appartment and the neighbourhood on our way from Termini station to home.
Needless to say how much I loved her smile and energy when she came to pick us up!
Our experience was completely positive, though it's worthy to comment that the place is not representative of the full airbnb experience where you can get the feeling of leaving in a typical household of the country you are visiting. This was no problem for us this time.
Alberta, thank you for your hospitality.
excuse the delay in commenting on the good judgment that you have expressed. You were a special guest and you're right when you say that you could not enjoy the atmosphere of the place and the people who live in the house. This most intimate relationship I take only with the people staying for an extended period because I have more opportunities to meet. My structure is not a bed and breakfast but a condo for which is expected to hand over the keys of the house and the independent management by the host.
At the beginning of my career I had more free time and sometimes I accompanied the guests around the center but now I am taken by all the commitments for the IT management of this establishment and I have no time to treat these social relations. If you have a chance to go back to my home I will be able to dedicate more time and maybe organize a tourist route or gastronomic together. Arrivederci bella!!!
scusa il ritardo nel commentare il bel giudizio che hai espresso. Tu sei stata un'ospite speciale ed hai ragione quando dici che non hai potuto godere dell'atmosfera del luogo e delle persone che vivono nella casa. Questo rapporto più intimo io lo stablisco solo con le persone che soggiornano per un periodo prolungato in quanto ho più occasioni di incontro. La mia struttura non è un bed&breakfast ma una casa-vacanza per la quale è prevista la consegna delle chiavi di casa e la gestione autonoma da parte dell'ospite.
All'inizio della mia attività avevo più tempo libero e qualche volta ho accompagnato gli ospiti in giro per il Centro ma ora sono presa da tutti gli impegni per la gestione informatica di questa struttura e non ho tempo per curare questi rapporti sociali. Se tu avrai occasione di tornare nella mia casa io potrò dedicarti più tempo e magari organizzare un percorso turistico o gastronomico insieme. Arrivederci bella!!
Très agréable séjour, clim très pratique, par contre on entend le bruit de la route ... Mais ce n'est pas trop embêtant !
Appartement très bien situer ! Le tram est de l'autre côté de la route, et a 10-15 min de Termini !
Alberta est très gentille, elle nous explique plein de chose et nous donne de bonne infos !
Amélie excuse pour le retard dans le commentaire de votre belle avis: bien vous étiez douce, utilisation collaborative de la maison et très ponctuel. Je vous remercie pour la façon dont vous avez décrit la façon dont je dors et je l'espère, vous pouvez revenir. Je vous souhaite bien que possible !!!
Scusa CAmille per il ritardo nel commentare il tuo ottimo giudizio. Tu sei stata un'ospite perfetta: allegra, comprensiva, attenta all'uso delle dotazioni della casa, puntuale e corretta nell'esprimere i tuoi giudizi. Grazie per aver soggiornato nella mia casa e se torni a Roma io mi aspetto che torni da me.
Alberta met us at the train station and took to the apartment by car. Along the way she told us everything we could possibly want to know about the apartment, public transportation, and current events in Rome.
The apartment consists of three rooms, each with it's own private bathroom and kitchen. The only chance you see other guests is if you are leaving or coming back to your place at the same time. The room matches the pictures and description. It's pretty compact, but nicely furnished. In the kitchen there remain some goods (such as coffee and sugar) from previous guests that you could use.
We found the location to be quite reasonable. In the mornings we took one of the several public transit options to go to places of interest, but in the evenings always returned back home by foot.
Overall this was a very positive experience; I would recommend Alberta's apartment to couples visiting Rome.
I thank you for the good review and also because you have described exhaustively the way I I host my clients. This description will be very important for future guests.
Indeed, the tap should be switched with the lever (often out of the support) is to be replaced, but since this switch again switches with ease, so far I have decided not to change it. The real problem is that this problem may cause anxiety and disappointment guests who fear they can not use the (website hidden) ti ringrazio per la buona recensione e anche perchè tu hai descritto in modo esaustivo il modo in cui io ospito i miei clienti. Questa descrizione sarà molto importante per i futuri ospiti.
Effettivamente il rubinetto che va azionato con quella levetta ( spesso esce dal supporto) è da sostituire, però siccome questa levetta si inserisce di nuovo con facilità, finora ho ritenuto di non cambiarlo. Il vero problema è che questo inconveniente potrebbe causare ansia e disappunto agli ospiti che temono di non poter usare il rubinetto.
The place is very cozy and perfect for 2 people. To get to the center of rome only takes about 15 minutes in the bus, which is right in front of the apartment. There is also a really cool area to hang out at night literally 3 minutes away it's called Via de pignetto. Perfect for some food, drinks and gelato! The area stays open until about 2 am. Alberta was great and we had a great time in Rome.

About the Host, Alberta
sono Alberta, gestore della casa-vacanze "Aquila 52", come è evidente dalla foto, ho una certa età ed anche un certo peso. In passato mi sono occupata di patenti, di bilanci e contabilità ed alla fine della carriera di ambiente. Il mio percorso professionale è stato abbastanza vario e sono andata in pensione quale dirigente del Ministero dell'Ambiente. Per questo sono sensibile alle tematiche ambientali e cerco di essere molto oculata nell'uso di tutte le risorse naturali e di quelle che derivano dall'esperienza umana.
Sono cattolica praticante e cerco di percorrere con coerenza la mia strada consapevole dei tanti doni ricevuti da Lui.
Ho iniziato a gestire questa casa-vacanze per creare un'attività per i miei figli ed anche per mettere alla prova le mie capacità di ospitalità in un settore molto concorrenziale.
Mi piace molto accogliere gli ospiti e spesso mi immedesimo nei loro problemi, mi capita anche di vivere di riflesso le loro aspettative e le loro emozioni di viaggio.
La parte più difficile del mio lavoro è quella relativa alla gestione informatica delle prenotazioni per cui alla fine preferisco annotare tutto sulla mia piccola ed inseparabile agenda.
