Penthouse in the heart of Rome

Apartment - Private room · Piazza Cavour, Rome, Lazio 00193, Italy

The Space

Hi everyone!
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.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • This was the second time we stayed with Miki in Rome, and once again it was fantastic! The house was spotless, as usual, and he was very helpful in giving us info on transportation, restaurants, and neighborhood amenities. The location is wonderful (everything walkable), and we love hanging out on his terrace overlooking beautiful Piazza Cavour. The bed is extremely comfortable, and there is plenty of storage for stowing our luggage and clothes for our trip. Miki makes you feel so welcome, it is as if we are staying at a friend's house. Can't wait to go back!

  • I had never been to Rome before, so chose to stay with Miki because of his beautiful apartment, the location and his excellent language skills. What I did not expect was to make a friend.

    The pictures of Miki's apartment are actually a bit deceiving, only in that the apartment actually is much larger than it looks in those pictures. The location could not be close to all the tourist conveniences, yet away from the tourist traps. The view of the Piazza Cavour is just the beginning; Prati has a wonderful ambience.

    Of course, the house was very clean, Miki provides all the amenities and you could not feel safer, being above a Police Station! It is also very quiet and had a great night's sleep. But the best thing about staying with Miki is, staying with Miki. He is very warm, thoughtful and charming. He knows how to be available to you but give you privacy. He genuinely loves Rome and wants to share that feeling with you. I just think Miki is a very fine person and he made me very comfortable in his home.

    I could not possibly have had a better entree into Rome than with Miki. I fell in love with Rome, and it was good to know I would have a "home" there. This is what Air BnB is all about. Thank you made my time in Rome very special!

  • Mikki was an excellent host. He immediately made us feel welcome and at ease.
    His place is just incredibly well located....we never took a taxi, a bus (well...just to get there from the airport, and actually the stop is three min walking distance from his place) or the metro; and the view from the terrasse is simply beautiful.
    We very much appreciated Mikki's suggestions (very thoughtfully printed out and well explained), they are a NO BRAINER PPL!
    We definitely recommed Mikki as an excellent option for your stay in Rome, don't look further :)

    Michele is an amazing host, patient and caring. I really loved staying at this gorgeous place at Piazza Cavour. I would absolutely encourage you to stay at his home and taking all of the splendor of living like an Italian in Rome.

  • We had a nice stay at Mikis place :-) The location was perfect and the appartment was so cosy. The view from the terrace was amazing.
    Miki was a very nice guy and very helpful.
    Very close to the appartment there is a shuttlebus to and from the airport.

  • We had a really nice stay at Miki's place! Miki is the perfect host, very kind, helpful and tolerant. We felt welcome and at ease. The guest room is quiet, clean and comfortable. Miki's apartment is also brilliantly located! We took the direct shuttle bus from Fiumicino airport that stops at the square in front of the apartment. Also centrally located in between all the main sites we could do all of our visits in the city by foot. Recommended!

  • The host Miki is an amazing host. I really enjoyed staying at his place. He was so helpful and kind. I would highly recommend his place to anyone. His two cats are so cute too.

  • Miki's apartment is THE place to visit Rome. Not only because of its unforgettable view of roman’s roofs, but mostly because Miki is the perfect host, very discrete and helpful (we recommend Miki’s favorite breakfast address). The apartment is very well located and allows visiting most of the Roman’s sites by foot. The bedroom is very quiet, which is very important to recover from long walks in Rome.
    We really appreciated our stay, Miki’s hospitality and his lovely cats. Thanks 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 my terrace), so it would be nice and fun to share it with guests from all over the world.
