Camaleonte Verde (Green Chameleon) is an house located in a three floors 30s building in Ostiense neighborhood, gasometer area. The entire building has been completely renovated both outside and in individual apartments.
I studied every detail of the restructuring, and now that it's over, I'm very proud of the result.
The house is about 60 square meters, it consists of a large living-kitchen area and two bedrooms, each with its own bathroom. Quiet and well-connected, can accommodate up to four people, perfect for a short stay in Rome.
It 's very bright, furnished in a minimalist way, with colors ranging from gray to light blue. The only exception is the kitchen wall made by tile-color tests which gives it an exceptionally joyful tone.
Fast Wifi, TV, washing machine, dishwasher, refrigerator with freezer, air conditioning, heating.
The surrounding area, the old industrial area of Rome in the early twentieth century, is now in full recovery through re-use of derelict lands.
Here, where there were derelict or disused spaces, now there is the University of Rome 3, the "House of Taste" and, in the old warehouses of the Miralanza power station, was born the "India" Theatre. Inside the abandoned Montemartini thermal power station there is now a fascinating archaeological museum and instead of the general markets is borning the "City of Youth", a place of music, cinema, restaurants and entertainment.
This was the neighborhood loved by Pasolini and brought to prominence by the turkish film-director Ozpetek. The zone is constantly changing and it is currently one of the trendiest areas of the city. Staying is a pleasure!
From the window of one of the bedrooms you can see the gasometer!
It is an area well connected by bus and subway nearby, but also with a short walk are easily reachable Trastevere, Testaccio and Aventino .
This apartment was the best flat we could ever imagine.
We lived here with 4 girls during our Erasmus time in Rome for 4 months. The location is not in the old city center but you have perfect connection to all parts of the city!
The flat is very cosy and very nice atmosphere. Everything is there what you need! We were very happy to live there and we wish we will come back some time!
Margherita and her parents where very sweet! They helped us at any time.
Excellent experience overall! We were supposed to stay at Margherita's place 3 months, which became almost 8. The place is new, clean and bright. We never had the chance to meet Margherita but her adorable parents were always available when we needed anything. All commodities nearby, including the train station with direct trains to the main airport. The only downside would be the lack of storage space but that's also because we stayed for a long time.
I stayed in this apartment for about 4 weeks. Margherita was in Spain at the moment, but her father Antonello and her mother Rossana answered me very quickly when i was suddenly in need of a new place to live in Roma. They are very kind, helpful and charming people. The apartment is as it looks in the pictures. Brand new and tastefully furnished. The area is also great to live in. The huge food market Eataly 5 minutes away. Close to Ostiense and Piramide stations and some of the best (for real!) restaurants in Roma. Da Enzo, Pizzeria da Remo etc. Hope i get to stay here again sometime!
