We offer to you the unique experience of living in a loft, from an ex-bakery, able to guest up to six people in the same time, in a cozy and traditional Roman neighborhood, nearby the cool nightlife district of Pigneto, and 15 min. to the Central Station.
The Certosa neighborhood has the curiosity of having a small town atmosphere, beside being in the center of the Big Eternal City. You can sit and chat at the Bar, buy tasty bread and cake at the Bakery, have a dinner in one of the most known traditional Roman food restaurants, have a guided bike tour in a park full of Roman ruins, have a haircuts and leave to reach the city center in 15 min.
The loft is a "open space room", with 3 double beds, but can reach up to 6 places without problem. Has a minimal electric kitchen, fridge, bathroom with shower, living room, Wifi, and bike, if you like it.
The loft is also used as cultural center, mainly for wellness activities such as Yoga, Capoeira, Feldenkreis, Tai Chi, or any other cultural events. You can participate, or book the space for a presentation, a vernissage, or a private purpose ( take a look of the photos ). If you want to book it for a dinner or a party, ask for the special offer.
For any proposal of more than a week we'll do price sales. We live right beside, and it will be a pleasure to suggest and inform you about the city and the stories of the neighborhood.
We also rent BIKES at special prices.
We speak fluently English, German, Portuguese, but we can express quite clear also in Spanish and French.
Tommaso è una persona accogliente e ospitale e il loft è molto carino in una zona di Roma particolare. Esperienza assolutamente positiva.

This is a great studio in a peaceful residential area of Rome, away from the hassles of the tourist centre, which is what we were after. Its easy to reach town by bus in 15-20 minutes, and walk to the Pigneto restaurant/bar area in 20 minutes. It is a large and comfortable open space, with comfortable beds. The wifi worked perfectly and it was very warm. The bathroom is a little awkward as there is no proper shower screen and water gets all over the floor, and the kitchen is not great for serious cooking as there is only one hotplate, though we didn't mind at this point in our trip. We had a slight issue with an electricity outage however it was repaired. The hosts were responsive and easy to deal with. I would recommend this place if you want a relaxing place to stay in Rome.
- Nice host and a spacious place, in an area that makes you feel like you are really experiencing suburban Rome.
- Place is close to pharmacy, supermarket, bakery, local restaurant, and convenience stores.
- Pretty good access to public transport. Bus stop is about 7mins walk away. 5min bus ride to metro stop.
- Place is very spacious.
- Very kind host. He very kindly made a doctor's booking for my wife who needed some medical assistance, which we were very grateful for. He also loaned his personal hairdryer so that my wife could use it!
- Place has a workshop feel about it, as it seems to be a workshop that has been converted to a place of accommodation.
- The area has a semi-ghetto/hipster feel about it, which I actually liked. Not ideal for someone who wants to stay in a touristy area.
- Place is a little cold during the winter months, as the air conditioner/heater is a little too high on the wall for the warm air to reach all the way to the floor (yes - the place also has a very high ceiling =). As the bed is in it's own little area much higher up (access via steps), no problems with warmth while sleeping through.
Stayed Dec 2013.
I didn't have the pleasure of meeting Tommaso in person (he was out of town), but he made sure the apartment was clean and ready upon my arrival. Irene was really helpful, hospitable and warm. Strongly recommended for travelers seeking to find an off-the-beaten path side of Rome.
Tommaso and his apartment are great! I was traveling alone and the area is totally safe and also very close to the various transit options to get to all of the sites. The tram is by far the best way to get to the central train station, in my opinion. The neighbour itself is a truer depiction of modern Rome and has fantastic non-touristy gems like bakeries (literally a 2min walk) and an excellent restaurant called Osteria Bonelli (make a reservation, it's VERY popular with the locals). Tommaso was very accommodating, helpful and made me feel very welcomed. If you're going to Rome, do not hesitate to book this apartment, I would go back in a heartbeat. Grazie Mille!
Big space and only 25-30min to the centre. Definetly recommend for those who wish reach centre quickly.
