About This Listing
SPECIAL OFFER FOR LAST MINUTE BOOKING
Situated on the ground floor of a 16th century palace - the Palazzo Andosilla, a building classified as 'historical'. This apartment is 40m2, and an authentic little nest in the heart of the centre of Rome in which all its ancient charm still resides. From there you will be able to visit and admire all the beauty of 'the eternal city', which always has a little something right around the corner for you to discover.
The flat, although it has been renovated, still retains all its antique charm. It is ideal for 2 or 3 adults, or 2 adults and 2 children/adolescents.
It comprises of a romantic bedroom, a small living room with a sofa-bed (size is 1 and a half people, which would have to be folded up every morning to allow for passage in the living room), a fully equipped kitchen, shower and toilets. The apartment naturally remains very cool during summer, but benefits from a very good autonomous heating system for the winter.
You will be able to taste the best coffee in Rome (on Piazza di Sant' Eustachio, literally down the street). In a neighbourhood full of local restaurants, authentic Roman ice cream shops, bars and boutiques, all of which contained within amazing historical Roman streets and alleys. A few minutes away from the apartment is 'Campo de Fiori': by day it is a beautiful and colourful market, by night the piazza turns into a highly frequented spot for night-life and entertainment, it is a highly known place of rendezvous for the young, under the statue of Giordano Bruno.
From a cultural stand point, you will live halfway between the Pantheon and Piazza Navona, a couple of streets away from the palaces of political life (Palazzo Madama, Palazzo Montecitorio, and Palazzo Chigi) and a 5-10 minute walk to the most fascinating 'piazzas' of Rome, the most beautiful historical monuments, and the principal museums of the city. In fact, all the main attractions the city has to offer are walking distance away from the flat such as, Piazza Venezia and the Victorian Museum; the Capitol and its museums; the Trevi Fountain; the galleries and many shops of Via del Corso (the main shopping street which connects Piazza Venezia with Piazza del Popolo). For the ones in love, it is also easy to access the esplanade of the Quirinale and to admire the beautiful expositions of grand renown which are hosted in it (the 'Scuderie del Quirinale)
To move around, there is nothing simpler: The apartment is literally 1 minute away from Largo di Torre Argentina, a piazza in which numerous buses stop which can take you to nearly all directions. On that piazza there also is the Tram 8 which crosses the Tevere river to take you to Trastevere (allowing you to stroll around other beautiful neighbourhoods of Rome which are not the centre itself, or simply to take a walk down the river banks). The connections between the flat and the main rail station (Termini), and therefore with the various airports, are optimal.
We will put at your disposal bed sheets, towels and coffee. There are no specific rules apart from the respect of others, material, and the location.
Pets are accepted.
Recibirán sábanas y toallas así como el café. No hay reglas particulares, lo único que pedimos es el respeto hacia los demás, hacia los muebles y el apartamento en general.
Se aceptan las mascotas.
Nous fournissons les draps et les serviettes ainsi que le café. Il n'y a pas d'autres règles que celles du respect des autres, du matériel, et des lieux.
Les animaux sont acceptés.
Le lenzuola e gli asciugamani sono forniti, come anche il caffè. Non ci sono regole particolari, se non quelle del rispetto verso gli altri, gli elementi di arredo e l’appartamento nella sua interezza.
Gli animali domestici sono accettati.
Marlene was very helpful. She arranged for a drive very to pick us up from the airport. The place is just the right size for two people and in a good location. It's on the ground floor off an inside court yard so it doesn't get any direct sunlight, which means it was nice and cool even on hot Roman days. There are no laundromats near by, so I recommend you do laundry before or after you are in Rome. We ended up having to do laundry and again Marlene was very helpful. She arranged for somebody to do our laundry, but it was a lot more expensive than if we were able to do it ourselves and it was a little bit of a hassle.
Марлен прекрасная хозяйка, добрая и приветливая женщина, она немного знает русский язык, для путешественников из России это очень удобно. Она организовала нам такси из аэропорта, добродушно встретила и все показала. Дала мобильный телефон с итальянской симкартой для связи с ней, да и вообще связи по Италии, это очень удобно!
О самом жилье: прекрасное расположение квартиры, самое сердце Рима, пешая доступность любой достопримечательности (от 5 до 30 минут ходьбы). Квартира очень необычная, двухуровневая, находится в каменном доме 17 века на первом этаже, спальня на втором. Жилье не большое! Для двоих самое оно, втроем тесновато. Чисто и опрятно, правда, немного сыровато. Мы были в июне, было очень тепло на улице, были переодически дожди и влажная погода, камень в доме держал сырость не давая стираному вручную белью просохнуть. В остальном нас все устроило более чем. Спасибо большое Марлен!

Marlene wonderful hostess, kind and friendly woman, she speaks some Russian, for travelers from Russia, it is very convenient. She organized us a taxi from the airport, kindly greeted and everything seemed. Gave a mobile phone with an Italian SIM card to communicate with her, and indeed regard to Italy, it is very convenient!
About the accommodation perfect location of the apartment, the heart of Rome, walking access to all places of interest (5 to 30 minute walk). The apartment is very unusual, two-level, located in a 17th-century stone house on the ground floor, bedroom on the second. Housing is not great! For most it is two, three closely. Clean and tidy, although a bit damp. We were in June, it was very warm outside, were periodically rains and humid weather, the stone in the house kept damp without giving manually erasing laundry to dry. The rest of us all arranged over. Thank you Marlene!
Gracias Màrlene todo estaba correcto tal como aparece en el anuncio de la página. Estupendo apartamento para para estar cerca de todo lo más importante que ver. Tanto por el día como por la noche.
Gracias por el detalle del zumo, agua, galletas, etc. Y el detalle del teléfono móvil por si necesitábamos algo de ella. La atención personal que tuvimos por su parte tanto para entregarnos las llaves y explicarnos los detalles de la casa. Aunque hacía calor en la calle dentro del apartamento muy tranquilo y fresco. Sin ruidos.
En definitiva experiencia inolvidable y si volvemos sin duda repetiríamos ahí.
Marlène nous a super bien accueillis et nous a donné plein de petites astuces bien avisées pour nous faciliter la vie dans Rome...
Le logement est extrêmement bien placé et accueillant, un vrai nid douillet, son nom est bien trouvé!
Un régal pour notre week end, on n'aurait pu rêver mieux :-)
Marlene's Cozy Nest BnB was the ideal accommodation during our stay in Rome. As first-time visitors, we had no trouble locating, or contacting Marlene. She met us on time and was very thorough in not only showing us the house, but also recommending some excellent hidden local gems to check out. She was extremely warm and welcoming and made our stay in Rome very comfortable. The BnB was walking distance from all main attractions and allowed us to make the most of our limited time in Rome. Thanks, Marlene!!!
Great location and Marlene was very accessible to make sure we had a great stay in Rome. Comfortable and cozy apartment very close to all the major sites and venues. Marlene had a cell phone in the apt and landline that we were able to use to stay connected and make dinner reservations. Also, a nice collection of books on Rome to peruse.
Marlene was the most welcoming host. She had her friend Abdu waiting for us at the apartment when we arrived. He was excellent at showing us the apartment and then took us to Marlene's work so we could say hi. The apartment was in an excellent location. We were able to walk to both the Colloseum and Vatican - plus have dinner in the Fior area. Extra special was the milk, juice and pastries provided upon arrival! Marlene offers a great place to stay.
About the Host, Marlène
As my first profession I was a sociologist (researcher), then I also became a nurse in tropical medicine and public health. With these skills I travelled a lot, working in many countries, in the humanitarian field and research. After 16 years spent out of Europe (Africa, former USSR, Middle East, Central Asia), my 3 teenagers and me decided to settle in Rome, end of 2008. We immediately fell in love with the 'Eternal City', its beauty, the cradle of our culture, and its sort of permanent chaos... then we bought our little apartment in the heart of the historical centre, our Cosy Nest. Now as my kids are leaving abroad again, I am pleased to rent our little 'nest' through Airbnb keeping in touch with people from each part of the world. I am now working as a freelance sociologist and I run a little business of Segway rental and guided tours in the historical center of Rome.
