Good link to the center town (bus n. 34 just outside the apartment, several other buses and train at less than 500 meters).
The apartment is located in a part of Rome (Monte del Gallo) very central and, at the same time, breezy and cozy. Just walking out the building’s door you will find the bus stop of bus n. 34, a comfortable small bus which allows you to reach easily and in few minutes St. Peter Square and Cavour Square. From Cavour Square, various buses and the near subway station will connect you to all the main neighborhoods and the main cultural and archeological sites. The “Roma S. Pietro” train station, at walking distance from our apartment, is strategic to reach rapidly and easily the main train station “Roma Termini”, the airport “Leonardo Da Vinci” and the coast (Fregene, Santa Marinella, Civitavecchia). At n. 10 of Salita di Monte del Gallo, at the top of a hill overlooking St. Peter’s dome, our apartment is made up of a living area, one bedroom, a comfortable bathroom with big shower and a kitchen fully equipped which gives onto a small garden where it is possible to eat and relax at the shadow of a medlar tree (nespolo in Italian) and surrounded by aromatic plants. In the winter season, in addition to an autonomous gas heating system, it is possible to enjoy the warmth of a wood stove. Linen and all that is necessary for cooking and eating is at guests’ disposal. The apartment is provided with two cable TVs and WI-FI system. In any room of the apartment, although naturally cool in summer time, there are ceiling fans. There are also two bike rentals at walking distance.

We had a wonderful time in Rosa's apartment. It was nice, cosy, clean and everything you needed was there. The neighbourhood is quiet, safe and close enough to all the highlights in Rome. We had a warm welcome from Rose. Only thing is that the taxi driver dropped us off in the wrong street. But that's not to blame on Rosa, only on the taxi driver (who wasn't very communicative at all)
Nous sommes restés 3 nuits chez Rosa. L'appartement est très cosy, propre, conforme aux photos. Des aliments de 1ère nécessité sont à disposition: café, thé, pâtes, biscuits, sucre etc... La terrasse est un vrai plus pour prendre le petit-déjeuner dehors si le temps le permet! Il est très bien situé: 10 minutes à pied du Vatican.
Rosa est adorable, joignable et flexible sur les horaires. Elle nous a laissé quelques bonbons pour l'accueil!
Bref, nous avons passé un très bon moment chez Rosa! :)
Rosa is a very kind host. The apartment is clean,comfortable and safe, near to Vatican and railway station. Very nice experience for our first airbnb!
Rosa is a great hostess! She is quick to respond to all emails and while she was away when we arrived in Rome, her mother, Anna welcomed us. The apartment is comfortable and equipped with all we needed. The location was great for people who like to walk like us. We managed to se all we wanted to on foot! Some 35 miles of walking in 4.5 days, according to Fitbit. The best part is the outdoor patio. We enjoyed coffee outside most mornings. We would definitely stay here again.
We stayed at Rosa's lovely apartment for 3 nights on our honeymoon and had a great experience! Rosa picked us up at the bus stop, showed us around the apt, and recommended a great little traditional Roman restaurant called Dal Brigante that was walking distance. Each morning we enjoyed the complimentary espresso and biscuits in the garden under her Olive tree before heading out. The apt is a short walk to the bus stop and a train station. It was very conveniently located, but yet far enough away from the crowds. The neighborhood was cozy and we loved the little bar that is right around the corner. Great for espresso, a sandwich or a bottle of wine. Wifi was reliable, the shower was hot, and the bedroom had very dark shutters for anyone that wants to sleep in. The bed is two twins pushed together so if you're expecting a hotel quality mattress this might not be for you. Overall it was an amazing experience and I highly recommend this place. Thank you, Rosa!
Rosa was such a sweet host! She unfortunately hadn't been able to welcome me in person but she put in a crazy amount of effort to make us feel comfortable and provided for. The location of the apartment is really perfect for seeing Vatican City and there are also bus and metro stops close by to get to city center of Rome. All of this information plus restaurants was provided by Rosa in a welcome note. I would absolutely recommend this place for anyone looking to stay in Rome.
About the Host, Rosa
