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.

Gli animali domestici sono accettati.
Marlene was the best host possible. She was there to receive us late at night, gave us tips os places to eat, showed us the house and helped us throughout out stay with our questions. Dealing with her was a great pleasure.
Her house is really nice, very well located and had everything we needed and as described. It is in a quiet location so we have no issues with noise or neighbours.
The combination of the house location and Marlene made our time in Rome the best.
Marlene was a great host! She arranged for a driver to pick us up from the airport, greeted us at the apt. and showed us how to get around Rome! Although the apt. is small it had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Great location to walk to the major sights!
The apartment is in the center of Rome, 3 minutes walk to the Pantheon . We walked to everywhere. The host, Marlene was super nice! She arranged pick up for us at the airport. The driver waited at the airport for 2 hours to pick me up cause my luggage was delayed. It was nice to have someone to pick me up in the middle of night at a new city. When the airline finally arranged to deliver my bag 4 days later, Marlene arranged it to drop off at her office, and ask her employer to deliver it to me at the apartment. So I didn't have to wait for it all day. Couldn't have a better host than that. She also called for us to arrange a tour for the colosseum. Great experience. Would definitely stay again in the future. Grazie mille, Marlene!!!
Echoing everyone else's comments here. Marlène is a fabulous host, very flexible and helpful. The apartment was charming, comfortable and quiet, which was nice to escape to between jaunts in the city. The location is central to everything you'll want to do in Rome. We were really impressed by this Airbnb experience and would recommend this place to anyone staying in Rome!
Nous avons passé un super séjour dans l appartement de Marlène qui nous a accueillis avec beaucoup de gentillesse. Nous étions idéalement placés au cœur du centre historique. L'appartement a beaucoup de charme et n a aucune nuisance sonore. N hésitez pas à suivre les précieux conseils de Marlène et à vous offrir les services de son chauffeur, Gaetano, pour les trajets d aéroport. Nous recommandons chaudement cette location !
Very nice place, great location, and keeps cool in the summer, which is fantastic. Marlene was great too, very friendly and helpful. Would recommend it.
Rome was hot when we were there like 100f but place was surprisingly cool with no ac. Used 2 fans in our bedroom. Marlene was the nicest lady she helped us with anything we needed. Location is perfect. Right in heart of everything. Place is good. Has everything. Would definitely rent again! Thanks for all your help Marlene! You were great!!
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.
