Really nice apartment with a wonderful view on the roofs of Rome located in Garbatella, one of the hippest, most charming and atmospheric neighborhoods of Rome, near to the railway station of Roma Ostiense (train connections to Ciampino and Fiumicino airport) and to the underground station of Garbatella (3 stops away from the Colosseum).
Recently renewed, the apartment is a two-room flat with a bright master bedroom and its walk-in closet, a bathroom with an amazing panoramic shower and an open-space living room/kitchen . Nice view from the long balcony. Perfect for a couple (children are welcome. if they are not tiny hooligans..) the apartment can host up to 2 more people (there is a sofa-bed in the living room).
The apartment is provided with everything you may need during your staying (except the microwave. the only appliance I could never stand) : a completely equipped kithchen, wi-fi connection, TV (42'), hi-fi system and DVD player, dishwasher, washing machine, hair dryer, indipendent heating system and air conditioning.
The neighbourhood is charming; for its architectural design (a planned "garden suburb" for the working classes in the bad old days of Fascism, from the 1920s to 1940s.), the warm old-town atmosphere with authentic, throw-back trattorias anywhere. It's a very good spot from where explore Rome and not been trapped by the touristic center. Both if you'll stay few days or for a longer while, you will have a true taste of life in Rome.
Recently the area has grown also for the cultural offer and nightlife. The Palladium Theater and all the Ostiense clubs (Rashmon, Saponeria, Goa etc) are 15 minutes walking from home, few nice restaurants and bars are just next to the house and Eataly (a big mall dedicated to the italian food culture and products) is one stop away on underground line B.
What else can I say? This house is my refuge, is a place I love and the very first thing I've built, here I find peace when I'm under pressure , just by looking outside the kitchen's window (if the sky is clear you can spot also the St.Peter dome). I'm not living in Rome right now and I would be glad if someone can feel the same there. Enjoy your staying !

My husband and I really enjoyed staying here! We traveled for about 2 months in Europe mostly staying in rented apartments, and this was the best one we had. Laura's apartment was cozy, clean, and overall really great. The view through the one-way window in the shower was gorgeous. We stayed for 9 nights and wished we could've stayed longer. And Laura was really helpful when I emailed her with questions. Nice neighborhood, restaurants and bars a few minutes away, grocery store about halfway to the metro.
If you're using public transportation, it's usually easier to just walk the 15-20 minutes to the metro instead of waiting for the bus. If you try the bus, get to the stop a few minutes before it's scheduled to arrive because they are sometimes early, but also sometimes late. I'm not a fan of Rome's bus system, but the metros were perfect.
Laura was a fantastic host and we couldn't be any happier to have stayed in Garbatella in her fantastic apartment. It was amazing to have such a perfectly (modern) furnished home in such a classic Rome neighbourhood. I've never felt so Roman and non-touristy as staying in this very special place.
As a host Laura was great about setting everything up, helping us with directions, and leaving an incredible array of Italian snacks to welcome us.
I highly recommend staying at Laura's rooftop on Rome for a real Roman experience.
