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.
It is a very nice apartment and have the most beautiful terrace. The apartment is very centrally located and is the perfect base for a holiday in Rome. We have got a very good treatment. We did not meet Miki, but was given a thorough introduction of Mikis friend Georgio. Thank you for a nice holiday in Rome.
Herrvorragende Lage! Direkt bei der Engelsburg... Supermarkt in 3 Minuten Entfernung. Vom Flughafen Fiumicino direkt mit dem SitBusShuttle zu erreichen. Hält direkt um die Ecke! Busse direkt am Platz (Piazza Cavour). Aber alles Wichtige ist fußläufig zu erreichen!
Das Apartment ist sehr modern,ruhig, sehr sauber und geräumig. Die sehr großeTerrasse hat eine super Aussicht auf den Justizpalast und Piazza Cavour.
Das Bett ist superbequem und vor Allem hat das Schlafzimmer eine Klimaanlage!!
After some transfer/travel delays Miki's assistant greeted us at the apartment and showed us a map, recommended restaurants and sights. The apartment is nicely decorated, commodious in a superb location with easy access for travel, sights and shopping.
Everything was perfect. The Place is amazing and was great to explore the city from in very hot August as we could move to the nice terrace when it became too hot. The rest of the appartement is tidy and stylish and (thank God) air conditioned. We were greeted by Giorgio who was very nice and helped us with a lot of local recommendations. All in all i can only highly recommend the appartement and the Host as everything went smooth and the location is perfect for visiting rome.
I cannot describe how beautiful this place is. The only trouble is, you never want to leave.
Great apartment, excellent location. Me and my family really enjoyed during our stay, the communication with Miki was perfect, the apartment had full equipment for everything you'll need for your holiday - 5 stars, no less
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.

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.
