The room I'm offering is in my penthouse apartment in the heart of Rome, right next to Saint Peter's Cathedral, the Vatican, Castel Sant'Angelo, and all the historic center, facing the newly renovated Piazza Cavour.
The room has a queen-size bed and indipendent air-conditioning.
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 and dryer, dish washer, microwave, Nespresso coffee machine, indipendent heating.
Bathroom to share with me.
I'm mostly here but I also sleep out often, especially on weekends, so there's a high chance of having the apartment all by yourself some nights of your stay.
There are two lovely and shy cats but in summertime (July-August) they would probably not be here. They go on vacation...
I don't smoke so there can't be smoking in the house, in terrace of course yes.
Very well connected to the airport through shuttle bus service, stop is just off the square, to Termini train station (subway), and to the city (bus stops).
Walking and sightseeing is perfect from here.
Supermarket is 70 meters from my 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.
Smoking allowed only outside on terrace.
Guests must love animals, specifically cats. And plants, they might like to water them if they see them dry.
We had a great time at Miki's flat - it was perfectly located for us, and we really felt that we could use it as we would our own home. Recommended.
My host Miki Mazzoni made me feel at home from the very moment we met at the door of his fabulous apartment. We and my wife spent a wonderful time in Rome and Miki was always available to provide hints and recommendations regarding places to visit, restaurants and food. The apartment is exactly as shown in the pictures and it is very well located. My special thanks to Miki, who has been formally invited to become our guest in Brazil whenever he wants. We will certainly return to Rome with our sons in the future and will stay at Miki's if it is possible.
Miki is a great host! Hospitable and friendly, we thoroughly enjoyed staying in his gorgeous apartment. And that terrace - amazing!!!
The location was beautiful and central to all the main sights, without being in a touristic area. We wish we had spent more time exploring the local area.
Miki's apartment absolutely lives up to the pictures, and is very clean and tidy. He made us feel completely welcome and comfortable in his home.
We look forward to coming back and staying with him again another time!
Un mot: génial! La localisation de l'appartement était vraiment parfaite pour nous! 10min à pied de la piazza navona, de la piazza di spagna, du vatican! Un peu plus loin pour le forum et le colisee mais c'est beau de se "perdre' dans les rues de Rome! L'appartement en lui même, rien à redire. Et on apprécie vraiment la terrasse!!! (Sans vis à vis)
Miki était plus que sympathique! Toujours de bons conseils et on ne se marche pas dessus!
Voilà je choisirai cet appartement les yeux fermés pour mon prochain voyage à Rome! ;-)
Miki is a very genial host. He welcomed us warmly and gave us some useful tips for our stay in Rom.
We felt very comfortable in his Penthouse. Miki is a easy going, kind person. Thank you Miki! It was nice to meet you, your cats and your wonderful place in Rom.
Miki is such a nice person, easy going and full of positive energy. The apartment is very stylish and located in a central area. Terrace was amazing as it is shown in the pictures. We highly recommend him and his lovely place.
Miki is a great host! Even though I had only given an approximate time of arrival, he made sure he was home. We had a very warm welcome and a quick tour around the apartment. We immediately felt at home. That was our main reason to book through airbnb.
The apartment is huge! Our room was bright with lovely purple accents. Firm but comfy mattresses and airco! Which is a huge plus! Double glass and facing the courtyard so no street noises. There is enough space to put your things.
You can use the fridge, oven, dishwasher, ... . Terrace has an amazing view and lots of shade. We had lunch and candlelight dinner.
The place was cleaned on the day of our arrival. It is not cleaned every day like in a hotel, so by the end of the week the bathroom is as clean as your own home. No problem for us, but we know some couples who are very picky about this. Miki also provided some very nice foodie tips (Eats for your groceries; Fatto in Casa for a nice pizza, Antonini for cappuccini e cornetti). Miki was not much around which was a pity because he is a very interesting person (vegan and writer), but it was also great because we had the whole place to ourselves :)
If you visit Rome for the first time, you might want to search for a place in the city centre, as Piazza Cavour is about a 15 minutes' walk to Pantheon, 40 minutes to Colosseum. This was our 4th visit to Rome, so this was no issue for us, and we love to walk.
We would definitely recommend this place and hope to visit Miki again.

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 my terrace), so it would be nice and fun to share it with guests from all over the world.
