The Space

Ancient Home in Roman Forum's area.
Close to the Roman Forum, just a stroll from the Colosseum, this small and luxurious apartment for 4 people placed in the middle of the Roman remains is the perfect synthesis of ancient and modern: cozy low ceilings with ancient wooden joints, original walls from 1500, decorated with furniture and lamps of famous designers and all the comfort you may desire.

Welcome to HomesSweetRome: we are based in the middle of the oldest neighborhood of Rome, the “Rione Monti”, which has maintained alive its popular spirit. Now, as back in the old times, the whole area (email hidden)ly labyrinth of shops, craftsmen, restaurants, taverns, bars, trendy clubs, art galleries, antique shops and much more. It is here that Julius Caesar was born in 100 B.C. and that Nero’s Great Fire of Rome took place in 64 A.D.: these narrow streets are the true testimony of Rome’s history… prepare to sleep in the middle of all of this!

HomeSweetRome’s apartment is a mezzanine on the first floor, composed of a bedroom with a double bed, a living room with a sofa-bed for 2 people and a bathroom with shower. Inside you will find all you need for the best holiday in Rome: air conditioning and independent heating, LCD TV with DVD player, washing machine and dryer, iron and ironing board, tourist guides and maps. The kitchen is fully equipped with an electric cooking plate, fridge, freezer, electric and microwave ovens, water kettle, orange squeezer, bread toaster, coffee machine and much more to allow you to cook your own meals.

Nearby, if you wish, you can rent bicycles and scooters. However, the subway is at only 5 minutes walking distance, but more importantly, HomeSweetRome is truly in the heart of Rome, from here you can quickly walk to:

Roman Forum - 1 min.
Colosseum - 5 min.
Trevi Fountain - 7 min.

  • Wir sind begeistert: Eine tolle Wohnung ... Sehr geschmackvoll und es fehlte an nichts.. Selbst der Kühlschrank wär mit einigen Getränken und Kleinigkeiten gefüllt... Super Lage in einer kleinen Straße in monti und eine tolle Gastgeberin ..
    Wir haben Clara zwar nicht selbst kennengelernt , aber ihre söhne haben sich toll gekümmert... Clara hat per SMS nachgefragt ob alles ok ist und sich lieb aus der Ferne gekümmert als wir eine Lösung für unsere Koffer brauchten, weil wir erst sehr spät abgeflogen sind und die Wohnung bereits neu vergeben war...ein sehr netter und fürsorglicher Kontakt .. Es hätte nicht besser sein können... Wir haben uns gefühlt als würden wir tatsächlich in Rom wohnen .grazie a Clara e saluti Dalla Germania

  • Clara's apartment was wonderful! Perfect location near the Forum, with all the amenities you could want - coffee machine, comfortable bed, air conditioning. Apartment was clean and looked just like the pictures, and Clara and her son were so helpful in recommending good places to eat nearby. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!

  • Clara was a perfect host as I expected. The apartment was immaculate and exactly what the photos described. There was food and beverages left upon our arrival and it was so courteous and unexpected, therefore a pleasant surprise.

    The neighbourhood was perfect, close the to colosseum and the ancient ruins and everything mentioned on the listing. We’ll definitely stay there again and mention this listing to anyone we know is going to Rome.

  • The apartment is just perfect: modern furniture in a nice typical Italian edifice. There is everything you need in the kitchen; we appreciated the coffee machine and the fridge, full of drinks and jams for breakfast. Clara’s son was waiting for us in the apartment, to show us how everything worked. Thanks a lot to him, because our plane was one hour late. The situation of the apartment is just perfect; you can get to most sightseeing areas directly by foot. We really appreciated the possibility to drop by the apartment, for a coffee or a nap, between two visits. Thanks a lot to Clara and his son, only good surprises in this apartment!

  • What a lovely place! Yes, it's small but wow.... it has everything you need (thanks to some very clever efficiency in the way the space has been used). Walking through the door it feels you're stepping into another world. The pizza place next door was the hit for our 13yo son, and we were just blown away by the amazing hospitality that Clara gives you. The bottle of wine as a welcome was much appreciated, as is the fact that the house is stocked with the essentials for you to use... she even thought of chocolate easter eggs!

    The apartment is in the middle of the old city and every night we walked around the Colosseum as it is a stone's throw away!
    Would highly recommend this place for couples, or small families (up to 4 people) as there is one bedroom and the red couch doubles as a bed.

  • Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here; we arrived late evening and Clara was there to welcome us. We stayed 3 very comfortable nights in this very central apartment, it had everything we needed. Clara was very thoughtful and provided some basic provisions; the home-made jam was well eaten! The apartment is well located for all major tourist attractions within walking distance, wear sensible shoes as there are a lot of cobblestones! Make sure you explore the back streets and support the smaller local businesses & restaurants, there are some real gems! A fantastic time was had by us all, highly recommended.

  • We had a wonderful stay in Clara's apartment! The apartment was perfectly situated for our Roman explorations (with three year-old in tow). The Monti neighborhood is charming and beautiful, and it has many restaurants and (email hidden)ly and popular trattoria is directly across from the apartment, and a local pizza place (delicious) is immediately next door. We walked to the Cavour metro stop (just a few blocks away) often, and stopped at the nearby Fatamorgana (gelato) a number of times. Clara kindly supplied the apartment with some milk, bread, cookies, cereal, and yogurt, which we replenished at the small but more than sufficient grocery stand/shop a few doors down. We felt very safe in Monti and in this apartment, and we enjoyed our stay.

  • We very much enjoyed our stay here. Clara was great. She stocked the refrigerator with some basics that made our first day easy. It was easy to deal at home. Clara was always available to answer question and even helped book a taxi for our return trip. The apartment is 2 min from the forum entrance and 2 min from the metro. I would stay here again in a heart beat.

  • Our family of 4 has just returned home from our stay in Clara's Rome apartment over the Christmas holiday and I can echo what so many others have said about what a perfect place it is for visiting Rome. The apartment is cozy and has an excellent blend of the old (wooden beams, brick, thick walls) and the new (designer furnishings with beautiful modern kitchen and bathroom fixtures). Clara provided a well-stocked fridge, espresso coffee, and hotel luxury items in the bathroom. Everything was well-organized and the location was fantastic for seeing Rome on foot. The thoughtful added touch of a bottle of good bubbly that greeted us on our arrival signalled the overall high quality of Clara's accommodation. We cannot recommend this place highly enough...thank you, Clara, for a great stay!

In fondo, viaggiare così, è come entrare nell'universo degli altri. Per questa ragione, questa non è una casa per turisti, ma è la nostra casa, come piace a noi per ospitare voi.
