Nice apartment in historical building five min.walk from metro station Garbatella near the center of Rome- Garden, Terrace with independent entrance. Recently renewed and fully furnished, dining room, loft double bed with window, bathroom with shower, large kitchen with washing machine, refrigerator, oven and big table. The flat is also on monthly rent.
It has a beautiful private garden with trees and orchard.
In front of us there is the Third University of Rome with all students's facility (canteen, libraries etc.).
You can easily visit the centre of Rome as the apartment is very well connected with metro and busses and to get the centre it will take not more than 15 minutes, you can have nice walking in the typical area of Garbatella, where you will find restaurants, osterie, theaters, cinemas and pubs with live music and cultural centre with international programs (Palladium Theatre-Opificio Telecom, Museo della Centrale Montemartini etc.)
We are very near to the famous Porta Portese Sunday Fly Market and the Tiber river side, where is possible to cycle.
The Catacombs area is near by.
Since ore year the very well known slow food centre Eatily, a kind of entraordinay bio food products and restaurants has open at a walking distance from the flat. It's open untill midnights.
In the apartment there is a unique garden where you can enjoy in the sunny days and have your breakfast and nice parties outdoor.
We request to the guests to take cure of the waste, dividing it in recyclable and not and organic.
This is a great quirky place. The host is very friendly, the flat is very central; not too far from the airports or city centre. The train track is very joisy at first, but you do get used to it by the end. A great place to stay for any amount of time in Rome
What a Gem !!!
This your Ideal Roman Place for a a great holliday. The Location is great - as far away as possible from the busy touristic central Rome, while being SO close to about everything at a walking distance. Carlo is a brilliant host which made our stay effortless and peaceful. We checked in on new year eve and Carlo made sure we were able to get in no problem. The place itself is like NOWHERE else. Funky lightings, great books, cosy sofa - all the ammennities you will need.
I highly suggest you to check EATaly, the neighboring italian "supermarket" which is full of great delicassy. We bought most of our meals there : Cheap(ish), easy and convenient.
Many thanks Carlo once again. We loved everything about our stay.
Everything is just perfect! Carlo is the best host ever. Or as a people I've met, he's really impressive due to his kindness and caring. He helped us to find a printer in night with his car as we had to prepare our boarding pass; he gave us pasta as we arrived very late without dinner. He can speak very good Chinese and do appreciate Chinese culture! Also, the flat itself is also charming. The entire flat has well-facilitated kitchen, clean bathroom, big and comfortable bed. This stay we really feel like home and therefor we had wonderful memory of Rome. Highly Recommended!
Carlo was a wonderful host and his apartment provided a great base for my partner and I to explore Rome. The apartment was clean, comfortable and really quirky. It's not too far from public transport and only about 4 stops from Termini. I would recommend this place to everyone!
We are a french couple who stayed 9 days in rome. Eleanora and Carlo were perfect hosts: carlo is very reactive on the Internet. It was the first time we booked something on airbnb so it was very reassuring to exchange mails with him before our departure. Eleanora welcolmed us and explained what we can do in the neighboorhood. The flat is very nice, big and clean with extravagant lighting and to our mind a beautiful (email hidden)d so many books! In German, Italian, French, English...
The metro station (garbatella) and train station (Roma Ostia) are not far at all so it is really easy to get to the main touristic places - even the direct metro line that gets you to the beach is not far away (metro station piramide)! But it is also very nice to discover the garbatella neighbourhood with its numerous gardens and its yellow ochre houses.
There are only 2 negative points: The garden is beautiful, but because of the Mosquitos we preferred staying on the terrace were there were less of these. The railway is next to the flat- but this is something you get really quickly used to (at the end of our stay we didn't noticed them anymore!) and in the night there are no trains..
To conclude, we highly recommend a stay at Carlo and Eleanoras place!
Un appartement original et un accueil très agréable. Carlo à été un premier contact fantastique avant d'explorer cette ville que vous n'aurez certainement pas l'occasion de voir en une fois. Situé à quelques stations de métro du centre, l'appartement profite d'une situation idéale pour qui voudrait couper de l'agitation touristique. Sa terrasse et son jardin sauront aussi satisfaire les amoureux des petits déjeuners en extérieurs et des dernières cigarettes à la nuit tombée. Seul bémol pour qui aurait le sommeil léger, l'appartement est en bordure de rails. Autrement foncez y les yeux fermés.
