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.

  • We really enjoyed our stay in Alberta's apartment. It is in the heart of Pigneto, which although 30-40 minutes walk from the city centre is perfectly well served by public transport. However, we enjoyed walking to and from the apartment - making sure we stopped for a coffee/ice cream along the way! Pigneto is well served by a number of good restaurants, which we have given the details of to Alberta - but Pigneto Quarantuno, gianni's and the pizzeria just outside the building were our firm favourites - mainly because of the very good value, and very satisfying house wine!

    The room is off a corridor which has 3 other similar rooms. It is comfortable and not too noisy, although if you are a very light sleeper you may struggle with some Italian road noise! The bed is actually two singles, but fine for two. We didn't use the air conditioning, but it was available.

    Alberta picked us up from Termini station, which we got the bus to. Note, the Ryanair bus doesn't go to either of the places where all the others do - so if travelling from Ciampino, make sure to know you'll have to move to the pick-up point. Though it's still only €8 return from the airport.

    We loved our stay in Rome. The apartment was the perfect base. Close to nice restaurants for the evening, close to public transport for the day and in an area of Rome which wasn't a tourist-trap at all. I thoroughly recommend Alberta's apartment!

    Thanks for the nice review Gopos.
    In the house you've forgotten a large umbrella that will be used by future guests and the food (chicken in the freezer) that I'm cooking for me.
    If you go back to Rome in Via L'Aquila!.
    Good luck.
    Alberta

    Grazie Gopo per la bella recensione.
    Nella casa hai dimenticato un ombrello grande che sarà utilizzato dai futuri ospiti e del cibo (pollo in congelatore) che sto cucinando per me.
    Se torni a Roma torna in Via L'Aquila!!!.
    Buona fortuna.

  • Alberta was a very welcoming host. She picked us up from the Termini station and drove us back to our flat. She then took time to explain everything in detail and gave up great tips for the surrounding location. It's very well situated but everything is accessible by bus (not walking). There is a nice street with lots of bars and restaurant that is not too expensive near by which was great for a late night drink. I would recommend Alberta's apartments.

  • Alberta's place was a wonderful place to stay in a very artsy/boho neighborhood. The apt itself was clean and had all the amenities we needed--towels, fridge, ac, wifi, and even toiletries. She picked us up from the central station, making our commute very easy. The apt is right next to a bus stop that will take you to all the sites. I totally recommend staying in the grey room.

    Dear Esther,
    I thank you for the nice review. I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed it and you appreciate my services. I've organized your welcome to Termini station taking into account the interest you to arrive early in the house but also of my interest in avoiding long waits in the house or at Termini station.
    Thank you again for how you left the house. I know that it is inconvenient to clean the house because there was many furnitures and you've cleaned so well that the took me little time to prepare for new guests.
    I hope you and your partner all the best.
    Alberta Bartolucci

    Cara Esther,
    ti ringrazio per la bella recensione. Mi fa piacere sapere che sei stata bene ed hai apprezzato i miei (website hidden) ho organizzato la tua accoglienza alla stazione Termini tenendo conto del tuo interesse ad arrivare presto nella casa ma anche del mio interesse ad evitare lunghe attese nella casa o a Termini.
    Ti ringrazio ancora per come hai lasciato la (website hidden) so che è scomodo pulire la casa perché piena di mobili e tu l'hai pulita così bene che poi io ho impiegato poco tempo per pr4epararla per i nuovi (website hidden) ti auguro tutto il bene possibile.

  • We had an excellent week in Rome staying at Alberta's house. The room was spacious, clean and had everything that we needed. The area was perfect as well. Since it is a little bit out from the city centre, eating and drinking was so much cheaper (breakfast was half the price of in the centre!) and there are lots of nice bars just around the corner. The house is very well connected to public transport with a bus to Termini every 5 mins and one to the Colosseum every 15-20 mins which means you can easily get to all the key locations in a very short time. I highly recommend staying here and I would stay again.

    Thanks Stefanie,
    I am glad that you've been good. Maybe you have not been lucky with the weather but at least for the rest of it was fine. For me it was a pleasure to host you. I wish you every happiness. Alberta
    GrazieStefanie,
    mi fa piacere che tu sia stata bene. Forse non sei stata fortunata con il tempo atmosferico ma almeno per il resto è andato tutto bene. Per me è stato un piacere ospitarti. Ti auguro ogni felicità. Alberta

  • Me and my husband had a wonderful time at Alberta's house. From day one, she was very helpful, and offered to pick us up at the train station on her car.
    The room was very comfortable, clean and had a nice renovated bathroom with a nice shower. The bed was really comfortable and help us relax after a long walk on the city.
    The location was great. Both tram and bus stations were just in front of the building, having direct connections to Termini and Vatican.
    On our last day, as she was near the building, she offer to take us back to the Termini station, which was a great help since we had a lot of luggage.
    We highly recommend Alberta's apartment for your stay in Rome.

  • We stayed at Alberta's apartment in the end of November for 4 days, and I couldn't say that we completely enjoyed our trip.

    Pros
    + Alberta was a very friendly and helpful host. She met us at Termini station (as a courtesy) and brought us home. All instructions were very clear.
    + The location is good: 20-25 minutes on a bus or a tram from Via del Corso and another central street. The bus from the centre stops in 3-4 minutes from the apartment, and you can get on a bus to a centre right in front of the house - very convenient.
    + The district is great: many really good hip bars, cafes and restaurants at Via del Pigneto.
    + The apartment was very clean and accurate, although it was smaller than seemed on pictures and the interior is quite basic. It shares one hall with 3 other rooms, but we never met anyone else.

    Cons
    - We stayed in November, and it was really cold in the apartment because of the tile floor. Thermostat helps, but it automatically turned off in night several times.
    - The drain smelled really bad - it needs to be cleaned.
    - The bed is big, but in reality there are 2 separate mattresses.
    - During our last night there was no hot water in the apartment.
    - THE NOISE! The street with pretty active traffic - including buses and garbage trucks - is right under the window, which is quite thin. You can literally hear everything! It's really hard to sleep.

    Conclusion
    Alberta is a great host, the location and general quality are very good, although I would recommend the apartment only if you are 100% sure you will be able to cope with noise.

  • We stayed over a weekend. From Roma Termini there is tram 5 and 14 goes to her place in 15 minutes. So convenient for arriving and leaving Rome and accessible to center of town. Apartment has hot plate and microwave ktichen arrangement good for simple meals and reheating food. Good size refrigerator. Shower and toilet, a little tight, but clean and fully functioning. Alberta walks through in her best effort English to know how the apartment functions and wifi. Washer is shared in the hall with rooftop drying lines. The apartment has only lace curtains so you get bright morning sun. And its on the fourth floor (american scale) or 3rd floor euro. Overall we enjoyed it, great location and made for an affordable and wonderful time in Rome.

About
Buongiorno, 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.
