The house is full of light and tastefully furnished.

A large supermarket (open on Sunday morning) is just a few metres away, as well as the picturesque Piazza Pio IX, served by several shops: chemistry, bar, pizzeria, hardware shop, newspapers kiosk.

  • Sweet and cozy place. Clean with all the amenities needed including wifi.
    We didn't meet Sabina, but our check in was easy and she responded very fast on all our questions. She didn't make problem about our late check in and also let us leave our stuff till the evening last day, we are thankful for that :)

  • Sabina's apartment was great. there were six of us and we had everything we needed. it's close to the bus that takes you to the city in 20min, and closest metro is 10min by foot. the neighborhood is great with shops, markets and few restaurants.
    we haven't met Sabina but she responded to all our questions quickly and her husband provided us with all the information when we arrived.
    overall we had a great time. 100% recommended.

  • We stayed in Sabina's apartment for the month of July. The apartment was a good size for two of us for such a long stay - we liked having a lounge, as well as a separate kitchen/dining room. It would be a good size for larger groups too. The air-conditioning worked well in our bedroom, and the wi-fi ran smoothly. The laundry was also very convenient. The kitchen is well laid out - we noted other comments about bringing your own knife, and whilst we wish we had, we managed fine. Only issues - if you are tall, remember to duck on the stairway and in the bedroom!

    We wanted to see local life, and that is what we got. Ad others have noted, just up the road there is everything you could need - several bars (cafes), gelateria, pharmacy, pasticcheria, supermarket, etc, all around the small piazza. At the end of the street there are a few small vegetable/fruit stalls during the week, and there is a much bigger market about ten minutes walk away. There is a good Sardinian restaurant about 5 minutes walk away. This really is local life.

    But if you want to go into the centre of Rome, there is either a bus-ride to the metro, or a 20 minute walk. In summer, this is a hot walk, and can be tiring, especially at the end of a day out sightseeing. Buses are reasonably plentiful though - we only took a few on the way home, but they are easy to catch, and use the metro ticket.

    Sabina and her husband Alessio are lovely hosts. Alessio met us on arrival, and was very helpful, providing a map, restaurant recommendations, and other information. Sabina kept in contact, and responded quickly to any questions we had, and she'll help you with your Italian too!

  • Sabina's apartment was wonderful! The place was beautifully furnished and well-decorated, the kitchen came fully equipped as advertised, and all the beds and rooms were extremely comfortable on top of all of this. In regards to location, the only negative to the apartment was its distance from the metro, which was a 20-minute walk, and being at the end of the metro line, another 20 minutes to the major attractions. However, this did not pose much of a problem at all for our group of three. Moreover, the apartment was spacious and clean, the shower never ran out of hot water, and the air-conditioning worked superbly well! It's also worth mentioning that Sabina's apartment is close to a café from which you can buy Metro tickets. The lovely man Pasquale working there was an absolute joy to see every day! We purchased breakfast and metro tickets from him daily, and he called us a cab at the end of our trip. A fun man who taught us some Italian and made our stay even more pleasurable! Thank you Sabina from the wonderful stay, and shout outs to Pasquale as well!

  • Sabina sublets a very cosy flat (double storey) in a four-party house. Communication via email was easy. Keys were found easily, although Sabina could not be there.
    Sleeping room and bathroom are above undernearth the roof. The living room has TV (only Italian-TV, so you should understand if the language if you want to watch - but thats not neccessary, as there is so much to explore in Rome) and a DVD player, bring you onw CD'S with if you like. It was very clean and cosy. The kitchen (with a gas stove) was great. You can sit there in the morning having your first self made Italian coffee - which you should buy if you want to drink it ;-). All kitchen equipment works. If you need a sharp knif, bring you onw with ;-).
    The area around is great; nearby (Via Sacchetti, 5 min walk) is a park-like area with pines a a lot of green. Everyday in the little traffic circle closed-by is a tiny veggie market (next to the Bar, where you can have your coffee on the way to the bus stop). In The centre of bella Roma you reach within (subway) ca. 20 min by Bus to the Vatican (Petersplatz) also 20 min.
    Only the search for a good restaraurant nearby was without success - but Rome itself is ful of them, try for lunch Pasquale near Pz. Navona and Campo di Fiori, definetly no tourist place. . All in all a very nice stay and a very nice accomodation. Gracie mille, Sabina!

  • Thank you Sabina for your appartment! It's a very nice house with cute things.
    It was only one one disadvantage: not so close to the center of city. We had to take a bus+metro.
    But in this district was very quietly. Appartment is very comfortable, twin sink - it's a great idea ))) And very cute - skylights. it was very likely to wake up with sunlight!! Thank you again!!

  • There were 4 of us and found the torreta very comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped and public transportation is nearby. We enjoyed staying in a real Roman neighborhood. I would return gladly to this place.

  • The apartment looked exactly like the photos. It was just what we were looking for the six of us. It was neat and tidy and close to bus and metro station in calm and quiet area. Ms Sabina was really kind, friendly and above all helpful. She replied our questions and requests almost immediately. She gave us recommendations and advice for restaurants and cafe's. She also provided a map of Rome which was really sweet of her. We really enjoyed our staying and we highly recommend this apartment.

It is exactly as described- beautiful, cosy apartament where we found everything we needed during our stay. Sabina is a very helpful and great person who answered my questions quickly . When I come back to Rome, definitely I will stay there again. 100% recommended.

mi piace moltissimo viaggiare e vivere, dei luoghi che visito, l'autenticità della gente. adoro la città in cui vivo: Roma. città unica! mi piace il lavoro che svolgo: spiegare la sua storia e i suoi monumenti. Mi piace molto il cinema, intimista, d'autore. da buona campana quale sono, adoro la musica: ne ascolto spesso di diversi generi.. e soprattutto amo fotografare:semplicemente mi emoziona!e, soprattutto, più di tutto, mi emoziona essere madre della mia piccola leda!
