A room in b&w in the heart of Rome

House - Private room · Piazza Confienza, Rome, Lazio 00185, Italy

The Space

The room, played on black and white, is on two levels with wardrobe, chair, desk and library downstairs and a king size bed on the mezzanine.
My house is a modern, comfortable and quiet apartment with all facilities located on the ground floor of a historical building.
There are three private bedrooms, each with its own personality.
The common area consists of a bathroom (with whirlpool tub), a kitchen (with microwave oven), a dining area and a cozy lounge with television, fireplace, piano and sofas.
The wooden floor, the volumes created from the ceiling, the alternating colors on the walls and the large windows overlooking the garden make it warm and scenic, the perfect place to plan your day, check your email, read a book or have a chat over a cup of coffee. Then there are three private bedrooms, each with its own personality.
Actually all windows overlook a charming garden and only sounds can be heard are natural ones: it's like living in an oasis in the heart of Rome.

Guest Access

La biancheria è inclusa (lenzuola e asciugamani) e gli ospiti possono disporre di tutte le comodità della casa: connessione WIFI a banda larga, riscaldamento, lavatrice, idromassaggio, asciugacapelli, cucina (con forno a microonde) e hanno a disposizione un angolo con te, caffè e biscotti cui attingere per uno spuntino.
Il fumo è ammesso solo nell'area comune.
The breakfast (included) is plentiful, varied and special menus can be arranged for those who suffer from food allergies (celiac disease, lactose intolerance, etc..).
Bed linen and towels are included and guests have access to all facilities: broadband Wi-Fi connection, heating, washing machine, whirlpool tub, hairdryer. They may use the kitchen (equipped with a microwave oven) and they dispose of a corner with tea, coffee and biscuits available for a snack.
Smoke is admitted only in the common areas.

Interaction with Guests

Check in time is flexible but must be agreed in advance. I like welcome my guests personally (it is rare for me asking someone else to do it) and chat with them at breakfast time, or when they come back home in the evening.

The Neighborhood

It is located in a quiet little square near the Sapienza University, the University Hospital (Policlinico) and the National Library Vittorio Emanuele, at walking distance from the university district of San Lorenzo (with a large selection of pizzerias, restaurants, ice cream parlors, fast food, pubs and clubs dedicated to cultural activities for all tastes) and Termini Station with laundries, shops and supermarkets open until late at night.

Getting around

A few steps from home, there is a bus stop that allow you to get to the Termini station (310, 649) or to major tourist areas such as the Basilica of Saint Mary Major, St. Peter in Chains and the Monti district (649), the Trevi Fountain, Piazza Navona, St. Peter and Vatican (492). A little further, there is the stop of underground line B (which can take you to the Colosseum and the Circus Maximus in minutes). At the same distance, at Termini station, you can find the Airport shuttle bus and trains (both for Ciampino and Fiumicino), the two Metro lines (A and B), the main bus lines.

Other Things to Note

I love cooking and I can give cooking classes to my guests who want to learn the traditional grandma's recipes (my grandma's, of course :-D)

  • Dora's home was awesome and exactly what I was hoping for...warm, charming, cozy, and yes cool. I had the fun pleasure of staying in the loft room. This room is so clever in its use of space and screams "cool" in the way you climb the stairs and into the comfy bed. Dora is a wonderful host. From the moment I entered her home Dora made me feel welcome, offering snacks and drinks and so attentive to my being comfortable. Thanks, Dora, I really appreciated your hospitality.

  • Dora's house is a nice place and very good location. She makes you feel like at home. In the meanwhile you have the chance to meet other people from different part of the world and stay together in a friendly atmosphere. I recommend this accomodation.

  • We loved our stay at Dora's place. It's relatively close at walking distance to Termini, with a metro station even closer at 300m around the corner. Dora is a wonderful host, well informed about life in this great city, full of (website hidden), a very intelligent woman with whom we had many conversations. My son loved her inspiration with her cooking skills at breakfast. I surely keep this address in mind for any next stay.

  • Dora was a lovely host and helped us right from the start: from cooking breakfast (very delicious) over restaurant recommendations to other insider tips, she was very helpful and we really enjoyed our stay.
    The room had a good size, was clean and tidy (just like shown in the pictures). Also the bathroom was cleaned multiple times.
    The location of Dora's home is good, you can reach termini in 5-10 minutes.
    We can really recommend Dora as a host, if you have any problems or questions just ask her, she'll make sure everything's alright.
    Thanks Dora for our good time in Rome!

  • Dora was a wonderful host and helped us have a fantastic visit in Rome. The room was lovely and the layout was unique with the bed above the main part of the room. The hilight was the generosity of Dora herself. She greeted us with gluten-free snack to accommodate my allergy, and woke up at 4am to help us get a taxi and explain to the driver where we needed to go. We would definitely stay with Dora again!

  • My mother and I had a lovely stay in Rom and at Dora´s. I Think it should be mentioned that Dora smokes, just in case someone has an allergy or asthma. She´s otherwise a lovely host that really wants to help you so that your stay will be as pleasent as possible.

About
Home sweet home, as banal as true. I love to feel at home, and for me home is wherever there is life. It 's life that I'm looking for: in nature, people, art, books, music, sports, meditation and all the little things of daily living. That's why, perhaps, I love so much traveling and hosting: it's the best way to share my passion. Casa dolce casa, banale ma vero. Amo sentirmi a casa, e per me casa è ovunque ci sia vita. E' la vita che cerco: nella natura, nelle persone, nell'arte, nei libri, nella musica, nello sport, nella meditazione, nelle piccole cose quotidiane. Ed è per questo, forse, che mi piace tanto viaggiare quanto ospitare: è il modo migliore di condividere questa mia passione.
