About this listing

The unique quality of this apartment is the fact that it truly is next to everywhere. It is a the heart of the historical center and thus allows you to deeply experience the roman lifestyle and dolce vita as a resident in an ancient roman building.

The space

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 adults as it comprises of a romantic bedroom, a fully equipped kitchen, a small living room with the entrance, a shower and toilets. The apartment benefits from a very good autonomous heating system for the winter, but it does not require climatisation in the summer as it remains naturally cool due to the thick, ancient walls. The only down side is that it does not have the brightest natural lighting in the living room and the kitchen (the ground floor). This is however counterbalanced by our good electric lighting.

Guest access

You have access to the whole appartment, independently. This flat is only for my visitors.

Interaction with guests

I am always available by phone, or at my shop/tourism agency 3 minutes away from the apartment.

The neighborhood

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 rendez-vous for the young, under the statue of Giordano Bruno.
From a cultural stand point, you will live halfway between the Pantheon and Piazza Navona, 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 Vittoriano 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)

Getting around

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 out of the historical center. 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.

Great little place with a fantastic location for exploring the historic centre. Marlene was a great host and made sure to give good instructions for how to get to the place and how to get to my conference. Cheers

Cosy, romantic place, and very centrally located. Perfect for a couple whom wish to explore Rome on foot. Very quiet, and no sounds from the street. Marlène was very helpful with everything from the transfer to getting around in the city.

We spent a wonderful week in the heart of Rome in a small apartment located 1 minute walk from Pantheon. The location is superb! The hostess Marlene really deserves the title of "super host" she got in Airbnb. We have never met such care,punctuality and sincere wish to make the life of the guests as comfortable and easy as possible. Her advice concerning the local peculiarities ( the restaurant "diai 3 Amici" is extremely good but cheaper than in other tourist places) is invaluable. We were really moved by the mobile with the local SIM card that Marlene gave us for the time of our stay. We never used it but this little detail shows how much Marlene does to prevent all possible difficulties that can spoil the well organised holiday.

Marlene is an excellent host and goes out of her way to makes sure her guests have a comfortable stay.

Marlène User ProfileMarlène is a superhost.

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 a 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 translater. But I have good connections with the tourisme offer in Rome as I have worked in a tourisme agency organising tours by segway.
