About This Listing
A lovely apartment with all mod cons, at 10-minute walk from Termini Station, well linked with the airports and the rest of the city! In a lively and fun district, for a Roman holiday, romantic and out of the pre-tourist routes.
The apartment is located in a typical building of the early twentieth century, in the popular district of San Lorenzo, in the heart of Rome. The apartment is very comfortable and it consists of a spacious living room and fully equipped kitchen, two bedrooms at night (one is occupied by me) and a bathroom with tub / shower. Often during the weekend the apartment is empty. in the room, there is also a comfortable sofa bed, so for little money the apartment can accommodate up to 4 people. Accessories included: TV 50 ", heating, air conditioning, internet, washing machine, dryer, iron. Maid and linen change 1 time per week.
My guests, after having taken the keys, can come and go as they wish and use all the amenities of the apartment.
Wifi, TV, kitchen (microwave, fridge), washing machine, hairdryer and safe-box...
Needless to say, you just have to be careful not to disturb the neighbors, myself, to safeguard the security of the home and household appliances.
Regarding the use of air conditioning ask the courtesy to turn it off when you leave the apartment …
Interaction with Guests
Regarding the interaction with the guests, I tend to be very available, at the same time are very attentive to privacy! They are almost always present at the arrival of the guests and available to receive them at any time.
At first I do a short tour of the apartment explaining everything and then are willing to help or suggest when prompted.
The neighborhood is particularly characterized by craft shops and art studios, in the evening it becomes a vibrant center for nightlife. San Lorenzo is in fact one of the centers of attraction of the "movida"and as all the districts frequented is absolutely safe!. There are dozens of pizzerias, bars, Pubs, clubs with live music, restaurants and bars for all tastes and prices! Less than 100 meters from my front door there are 3 large supermarkets and various small supermarket open till late night.
From the apartment is within walking distance of the Colosseum, the Basilica of San Giovanni, Santa Maria Maggiore and many of the major tourist attractions of the city. The apartment is easily accessible by two main railway stations: Termini and Tiburtina, is conveniently connected by bus and metro to the airport (via shuttle bus or train), and the rest of the city.
I have added a map in my photo to see the location.
From Fiumicino I know there are train and fast train, or several shuttles to get to the Termini railway station. (Preferably the train! The cheapest is the shuttle!).
From Ciampino there are lots of shuttles.
The Easiest way to get to my house is walking distance from the Termini station.
It will take 10 -15 minutes
the shortest route is to do not get out of the station but to follow the first track to the end .... at the end there is a gate beyond Which Already you are in my neighborhood San Lorenzo !
Of course if you have much luggage and do not want/can to walk , take a taxi.
In my home you should feel at home and live as in yours! I will give you the key of the apartment and you can come and go and use all the facilities (kitchen, fridge, Wi-Fi, washing machine) whenever you want.
Only three things:
The first is that If I go out of town, to feel comfortable when I leave the apartment for a guest, I usually ask to see an identity document or passport.
The second is that because I am a Buddhist, sometimes I'm used to chant "Nam myoho renge kyo". I will do it as quietly as possible, and I will try to do it away from home but every Wednesday evening from 19:00 to 20:30 in the lounge/kitchen will come some fellow believers and will chant together (our meditation). Meanwhile you'll be alowed to do what ever you want in the house except for the lounge/kitchen....or if you want you can join the meeting!
Third, I don't prepare breakfasts!
If we wake up together I will happily offer you a coffee!
Leonardo a été un excellent hôte, sympathique, discret et plein de bonnes intentions ! Il parle parfaitement anglais. Demandez-lui ses adresses préférées où manger dans le quartier, vous ne serez pas déçus ! :-)
La chambre n'est pas luxueuse et nous partageons la salle de bains avec Leonardo, ce n'est donc pas pour les gens qui cherchent le confort et l'intimité d'un hôtel ou d'un appartement privatisé. Mais c'est calme et bien situé par rapport à la gare. On y dort bien.
Thank you so so much,Leonardo. You made us feel very welcome and the location meant that we could walk everywhere! It was everything we wanted and we definitely recommend it highly.
Leonardo's place is very convenient as it is next to multiple bus stops, tram station, and the main train station. He made me feel welcome and was very kind - he would constantly ask if I needed anything. The room was spacious and clean.
Leonardo was great. Everything his previous reviews said he would be
Très bon accueil de la part de Leonardo, chaleureux et très sympathique. Alors qu il était un peu malade, il a pris le temps de nous conseiller sur Rome. L appartement etait tout a fait conforme à la description, tres charmant et l emplacement parfait, dans un quartier vivant et authentique. Nous avons passé un séjour parfait!
NUESTRA ESTADIA EN ROMA FUE INCREIBLE, EL DEPARTAMENTO LIMPIO, CON TODAS LAS COMODIDADES Y CERCANO A TODAS LAS ATRACCIONES DE LA CIUDAD, BARRIO TRANQUILO CON MUCHA MOVIDA NOCTURNA, BARES, RESTAURANTES, PERO A LA HORA DE DORMIR NO SE ESCUCHA NADA, SUPER AGRADABLE, TRANSPORTE A METROS DEL MISMO AUNQUE NOSOTROS LOS 5 DIAS DE ESTADIA LOS DISFRUTAMOS SIEMPRE CAMINANDO, ES UNA DELICIA RECORRER LAS CALLES DE ROMA HASTA LLEGAR A LOS PUNTOS DE ATRACCIONES PRINCIPALES.
CON RESPECTO A LEONARDO, EL MEJOR ANFITRION QUE NOS PODRIA HABER TOCADO; EDUCADO, PREDISPUESTO, AMABLE, SERVICIAL.... APENAS LLEGAMOS NOS MOSTRO EL DEPARTAMENTO Y NOS DIO UNA GUIA DE LA CIUDAD ATRAVEZ DE SU COMPUTADORA. SU CAFÉ ITALIANO EL MEJOR QUE HEMOS PROBADO, NO HUBIESE SIDO LO MISMO LA ESTADIA EN ROMA SI NO ERA LEO NUESTRO ANFITRION!!! SIN DUDAS RECOMENDABLE, CUANDO VOLVAMOS A ROMA NO DUDAREMOS EN ALOJARNOS CON EL, MUCHAS GRACIAS LEONARDO POR TODO, TE ESPERAMOS EN ARGENTINA!!! BESOS!!!!

About the Host, Leonardo
Hi! I would say that I am a very nice person!!! Is not a matter of modesty is a matter of will!!
I mean I try to be an honest, careful, clean, generous and smiling man.
Lots of friends, lots of passions and a wonderfull daughter are my treasures and give me faith on people and life in general.
I work on television productions... editor, operator, author, director.
I'm interested in Art in general: music, books, architecture, painting, sculpture, theater, opera, cookery and CINEMA ( I'am also a clever painter).
I love to meet and know new people, but I'm also able to understand the importance of privacy!!!
I live alone in a very silent and sunny house. I am a smoker, but when I have guests, I avoid smoke outside of my room!
Often in the week-end I go to visit my daughter in Ancona so I leave the appartment.
In the lounge there is also a sofa bed for one or two person, so the house, for few money, could accommodate up to 4 people.
I hope to meet you one day ...and in any case "stay hungry, stay foolish"!!!
