About This Listing
A warm cozy room to feel at home in, convenient and fast to get pretty everywhere you like in Rome, located in a beautiful building on a quiet street not far from Termini, the perfect accommodation to live Rome as a local
The room, in shades of green, has two windows and is furnished with bed, wardrobe, bookcase and desk.
My house is a modern, cozy and quiet apartment located on the ground floor of a historical building with all comforts.
There are three private bedrooms, one for me and two for my guests.
The common area consists of a restroom (with whirlpool tub), a kitchen (with microwave oven), a dining area and a lounge with a television (netflix), fireplace, piano and sofas and armchairs. There is a second bathroom attached to my room that can be used in case of need.
The wooden floor, the volumes created by 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.
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.
The breakfast is included 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, kitchen) and to a corner in the lounge with tea, coffee and biscuits if they need a snack.
Smoke is admitted only in the common areas.
Tourist tax is not included, for details go to the section rules of the house.
Interaction with Guests
Check in time is flexible. It must be agreed in advance and between 10pm and 8am there is a 10 euros extra to be paid.
I like to welcome my guests personally (it is rare for me asking someone else to do it) and to chat with them at breakfast time, or when they come back home in the evening: these are my favourite moments.
The property 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.
The property is in a perfect location to visit Rome without renouncing to quiet. 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 for a minimum extra fee I can give cooking classes to my guests who want to learn the traditional grandma's recipes (my grandma's, of course :-D)
Tourist tax is not included, for details go to the following section.
At home you are expected to follow the basic rules of a friendly coexistence: a moderate tone of voice, care not to disturb the other guests, care not to leave your DNA in the restroom, smoking is admitted only in the common area. Guests have at their disposal a set of keys to come and go freely. I love to travel and accommodate someone is a bit a way to do it without move from home: every time is an experience that is a mutual enrichment, and I sincerely hope that it continues to be.
Pets are welcome if their owner is able to handle them correctly.

Dora est une personne très accueillante et chaleureuse. Nous nous sommes tout de suite sentis à l'aise presque en famille. L'appartement est très joli bien situé (proche du métro et de la gare termini) et fonctionnel (de nombreux rangements dans la chambre, grande salle de bain et belle cuisine). Petit hic pour les grands (le lit est un peu petit).
Dora nous a donné de précieux conseils pour optimiser notre temps et visiter les plus beaux coin de Rome. Elle donne également de très bon plans de restaurants.
Grazie mile Dora pour ton accueil. :)
이탈리아 일정은 6박7일이었다. Dora 님의 친절한 안내로 즐겁게 여행하였다. 숙소의 위치가 역에서 가까워 편리했다. 특히 Doa가 제공해 준 여행정보가 유익했다. 정명훈 감독이 지휘하는 연주회 감상, 쏘렌토와 포지타노 일정조정이정가능했다. 어머니처럼 챙겨주시는 아침, 간식 등과 콜택시, 바티칸 안내, 셔틀버스 클레임, 수퍼마켓, 사진전시회 안내가 도움이되었다. 다른 게스트와 함께한 아침도 좋았다. 다음 일정에서 먹으라고 쏘스와 과자도 주었다. 고마워서 과일로 인사했다. 서로의 가족 사진을 돌려보며 살아가는 이야기를 나누고 기념 촬영도 했다. 주방을 활용하여 식사도 불펀 없이 했다. 짧은 체류 동안 열심히 살아가는 도라의 모습을 보았고 슈퍼 호스트에 걸맞는 써비스를 받았다. 현지인 민박을 잘 했다는 생각이다
Dora is the perfect host anyone can have! :)
She was very friendly and helpful, even managed to help us get tickets to Borghese Museum when ticket reservations were full online. She also gave us great insider tips on how to skip queues at the Vatican Museum.
I will definitely recommend my friends who are traveling to Rome to stay with Dora! :D
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour chez Dora qui nous a accueillis chaleureusement. Dora fait en sorte que les gens se sentent à l'aise, "comme à la maison". Elle est de bon conseil pour les bons plans (visites, restaurants, transports). Dora est toujours disponible pour discuter autour d'un verre ou d'une tasse.
Dora est une belle personne.
La chambre correspond exactement à la description du site. Les petits-déjeuners (sucrés ou salés) sont copieux.
Une nouvelle fois nous remercions Dora. Pour notre première expérience airbnb, nous sommes enchantés.

Dora's place is lovely and I felt welcome from the beginning. The flat is great and comfortable, my room was just as on the photographs. The bathroom was clean even though I shared it with another couple, because Dora is a great host and she looks after the cleaning as well as she makes delicious breakfast. And it is fun to chat with her. She's got lots of good advices for sightseeing in Rome. And she likes having friends around, who are very openminded as well, so you can get a little insight look into real Roman life :-) The only thing that one could complain about is, cigarette smoke, cause it is a smokers house.
Dora est une hôtesse parfaite et adorable. Pour une première expérience avec Airbnb, nous n'aurions pas pu trouver mieux. D'une grande disponibilité, elle a sur nous conseiller pour notre séjour, nous a aidé à trouver une place de stationnement gratuite à côté de chez elle et nous à fait découvrir la cuisine italienne. La chambre est confortable et lumineuse. Le quartier très agréable et l'accès aux transports en commun est rapide. Pour ceux qui cherchent une hôtesse avec qui échanger vous ne serez pas déçus, sans toutefois qu'elle soit intrusive. On sent que c'est le confort et le plaisir de ses hôtes qui priment avant toute chose. Merci Dora pour ta bonne humeur et ta gentillesse qui ont largement contribué à la réussite de notre découverte de Rome. A bientôt chez nous.

About the Host, Dora
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.
