About this listing
As I'm taking a leave of absence from Rome, I will be renting the whole place instead of one room only.
My penthouse apartment is in the heart of Rome, right next to Saint Peter's Cathedral, the Vatican, Castel Sant'Angelo, and all the historic center, facing the renovated Piazza Cavour.
The main bedroom has a regular double bed, and the second room has a queen-size bed. Indipendent air-conditioning in each room.
The apartment is 80 square meters (861 square feet) with a terrace of 50 square meters (538 square feet). All the mod cons: elevator, wifi internet, sat-cable tv, air-conditioning, washer, dish washer, microwave, Nespresso coffee machine, indipendent heating.
There absolutely can't be smoking in the house. In the terrace, of course, yes.
Very well connected to Fiumicino airport through shuttle bus service, stop is just off the square, and to Termini train station (subway or bus).
Walking and sightseeing is perfect from here.
Supermarket is 70 meters from the building and at this corner of the square there's one of Rome's biggest and coolest wine stores, which comes handy when you want to relax at sunset on the terrace.
Don't forget to scroll down the listing to see the neighborhood map where I pointed out nice restaurants, bars, supermarkets I like.
My friends GIORGIO and MICHELE will be handling the apartment when I'm not here.
Most important rule: smoking allowed only on terrace!
Please, lift your trolleys instead of rolling it on the hardwood floor.
Hopefully you'll have some sort of green thumb and will be willing to water the plants if you see them dry :-) Anyhow, there will be a friend who will come to water them usually around 5pm.
Miki is an incredibly welcoming and warm host who goes out of his way to provide information, advice and everything you need for a great and memorable stay. The penthouse apartment was absolutely stunning, within walking distance to all major attractions, and close to a supermarket, restaurants and other amenities. Having aircon in the room was a godsend. It is also in one of the safest and most beautiful neighborhoods in Rome. We really loved our stay and we strongly recommend Miki to other users.
I couldn't recommend staying with Miki highly enough! The apartment is clean and spacious, and the bedroom is well presented with a comfortable bed. The air con in the bedroom was much appreciated after long hot days sightseeing around the city! The roof terrace is a show stopper, with a great view of the piazza, and is the perfect place to lounge in the sun or have a glass of wine in the evening. The location itself was spot on, being both very easy to get to from the airport (a direct bus drops you on the corner of the piazza) and a walkable distance to everywhere we wanted to visit during our stay.
Miki gave us a warm welcome upon arrival, ensuring we were comfortable in the apartment and providing us with useful information about the local area. He made helpful suggestions, such as visiting the Vatican Museums on the Friday evening to avoid big queues and recommending some good places to eat (all very tasty!) Although he was away from the second day of our stay, Miki was available at the end of the phone with tips and suggestions, replying quickly whenever we contacted him. Miki went above and beyond as a host, making us a reservation in the restaurant we wanted to eat in on our last night.
I would have no hesitation in staying here again and will recommend it to anyone I know visiting the city. A truly super host, fantastic apartment and memorable trip to Rome!
What else can I say - it was a perfect stay at Miki´s beautiful apartment! Me and my mom had an amazing time and Miki was a great host. The location is the best you can get in Rome. Nice neighbourhood and everything is in walking distance. Thanks so much, Miki - Take care and enjoy the hot summer in Rome with some cold mint drinks :)
Miki was really friendly. Even if he wasn't there during our stay, he was avalaible by phone and gave us good restaurant address. The appartment looks like the pictures. It's good located and everything can be reached by foot. The terrace and the view are just amazing. Great host, great appartment and great stay.
Staying at Miki's house is like staying with your closest friend. I was there with my son and we were welcomed so warmly by Miki. The location is perfect! And the terrace is so beautiful. We will always stay with Miki (if we can) from now on. It was clean with a beautiful view and a wonderful host! Thank you, Miki, for making this visit to Rome my favorite!
Miki was an awesome host. His apartment is amazing, the view looking over the piazza is spectacular. We were central to everything. There were some really lovely places to dine in all within a couple of minutes walk from the apartment. We high recommend Miki to anyone looking to stay in Rome. Miki made our stay in Rome easy and without fuss. Definitely a 5/5,ticked every box. Miki was the perfect host. Will definitely stay in touch
Wonderful place & great host. Very clean and Miki is friendly and welcoming. I recommend this place without hesitation. Very easy to reach from the airport and a quick stroll to the historic centre. The roof top is as charming as the host.... We will be back :) Great bed - very comfortable...

About the Host, Miki
I deal mostly with writing and I work from home.
I grew up in Milan but as soon as I graduated from high school I moved to New York, where I lived for three years. When I came back to Italy I moved to Rome, got a university degree with a major in movie history, worked as second assistant director and casting assistant and then as script editor.
I'm a very lucky guy because I live in a uniquely beautiful apartment (you won't forget the Roman sky from the terrace), so it will be great that other people will be gracefully taking advantage of it while I'm off on my leave of absence from Rome.
