We rented the apartment for 5 days and it was perfect for us.. Carlos arranged to have his brother checked us in. he showed us the local stores and coffee shops (cappuccino=awesome) ... Great prices.... Not like in Vatican city..... Carlos checked us out and took us to the train station short cut to the airport... Great value, close to train apartment, great host... = great time in Rome... Ty Carlos....

We were stayin at Carlo`s for 4 days in October and we enjoyed our stay a lot! The apartment was really nice and clean and very good-located, with the centre just within a 7mins trip by metro. It was equipped with everything anyone needs for a comfortable stay and a rooftop terrace was a big plus! We loved the area a lot: it was quiet and not touristic at all with several good restaurants near by and a supermarket within a 5 mins walk. There was an amazing bakery/cafeteria on the way from the metro station where they sell this freshly made delicious pastry that was to die for! Calros`s brother Lorenzo met us at the station and showed us around the neigborhood. He was very friendly and answered every single question we were shooting at him. On our last day we had a late flight but they let us leave our bags in the apartment before we left to the airport. We would definitely recommend staying in this apartment if you need comfort and want to be close to everything and escape crowds of tourists.

From the very start Carlo was quick to answer all my questions -a very friendly chap that I would have loved to share a few drinks with, but unfortunately he was not in Rome at the time of my stay -Carlo, fyi, I left some Belgian beers in your fridge :) So, communication was excellent -and the apartment was even better. One tiny detail I thought was a pity was that the oven was disconnected, but that was only because I promised a good friend to bake chocolate soufflé, which now was not possible, but that was not really a problem -luckily my friend was very understanding. The apartment itself is really really a good deal: very spacious living room with airco and a nice view, a kitchen with all the stuff that you need to cook your own meals, a long and small bathroom and a nice big bedroom with a comfortable double bed. Everything was nice and clean, and I did not really find fault with anything -I would go there again without hesitating a single second. Carlo's brother Lorenzo, who picked me up at the Garbatella metro stop, was also very kind and, as we were walking towards the apartment on the day of my arrival, he showed me the most interesting places in the neighbourhood -speaking of which, Garbatella really is a nice area -not crowded nor touristic, but you do need to speak Italian, as English will not get you very far. The people are very friendly though, always willing to help. I think I lost my heart there somewhere ...

Absolutely great spot in a very fascinating side of Rome. The flat is very spacious, well maintained and well connected to the centre. I would definitely do it again!

Carlo and his brother Lorenzo were really attentive hosts. Great communication, good tips to explore the area. We actually fell in love with Garbatella. A "normal" neighbourhood which is meant in the most positive sense. No tourists, just nice and friendly Romans. Really good restaurants and bars in direct neighbourhood to the (by the way) spacious appartment. All tourist attractions no more than one metro-station away. Very recommendable!

We enjoyed our stay at Carlo's apartment. We weren't able to meet him face to face, but he was in contact by phone when we needed to ask questions and always answered emails promptly. His brother met us at the station, and showed us a few shops and restaurants on the way to the apartment, he was very nice as well. In Europe, the first floor is the floor above ground floor, and his apartment was on the 3rd floor, so for someone with knee or hip troubles, this might not be a good pick as there isn't an elevator. That being said, we were aware of this and had no problem with it! The pizza place just a few doors down the street was very good, and reasonably priced, a coffee shop and pastry shop just on down from that! If there weren't so many things we wanted to see and do while in Rome, we could have had a great time just exploring the neighborhood! Eataly, Rome, just opened 15 minute walk away from this apartment, and I am a food and wine lover, so I was in paradise!!

It's a great place to stay in Roma. The neighborhood, even if it's not in the center, desserves to be discovered. You ll live there like Romans, no like tourists. No stress, great people, nice "enoteca" and good "pasticerria" (you can ask Carlo or Lorenzo which ones are their favorites!)... The flat is also cool and comfortable. Special mention to the Terrace! Carlo and his brother Lorenzo are charming. They have taken care of our welfare during the stay... Thanks to both of you! We hope we will see you again soon!

my name is Carlo, I'm 33 and I was born and raised in Rome, during the past few years I've lived in France and in the US: I basically took my studies as an excuse to live abroad, travel and get to know different people and languages.
After these two years I was feeling very homesick: Rome is a lazy relaxing city, which can be unnerving at times, but where life is so so sweet. The weather is great, the food is awesome and the nights are fun. So I decided to come back and enjoy it and I moved back here with my girlfriend, who is French (almost Belgian).
The thing is: many friends, my in-laws and my employee are all abroad and I end up traveling a lot, so I thought I could sign up here to help pay the rent.
What else…I enjoy reading, music, art, cycling and I'm kind of a geek (did I mention I'm a physicist?). I enjoy Rome's underground scene, but I don't disdain a classical concert from time to time. I'm definitely a foodie and a wine lover.
One thing I enjoy a lot is sharing my city with foreigners and tourists, because it helps me rediscover it every time and fall back in love with it.
Please contact me with any further questions!
