In the Jewish Ghetto of Rome, as central as you can get right by Largo argentina :) You can walk to all the sites.

The Space

This large studio is composed of a queen size bedroom an open plan living room complete with dining table, lounge, Television unit and Roman balconette style windows. Follow the corridor and entrance hall and you will find a modest size kitchen with Gas appliances, fridge and washing machine. Its modern bathroom has a heated towel rack and a shower.

The property is light and airy throughout, has a great view of surrounding Piazzas. And right by Largo Argentina, where you are connected to the rest of the city via bus and tram. Close by you have the popular nightspot; Campo dei Fiori,some of Rome's most popular tourist attractions:

The neighbourhood is buzzing with activity, its very safe and well policed due to the attractions in the area. If you want an apartment only a walk away from everything...this is it.

  • This apartment was unbelievable. Alex met us at the apartment, he was running late and on his way somewhere but apologized for being late and took a lot of time to show us all around the apartment, to tell us things about Rome, give advice about places to visit, showed us how to use the coffee maker and washing machine, and double checked to make sure TV and appliances were working well before he left. We had never been to Rome and knew very little about it, our cab driver told us it was a nice area and I believe him. The location is great-very close to Pantheon and not far from Colosseum. We walked to the Vatican and Borghese galleries, 30-40 min walk for each place but those are the two farthest things and everything else was within 10-15 min walk. Good restaurants and cafes nearby. The apartment was extremely clean and comfortable. This was the last stop of our 2 week Europe trip, so we were a little worn out and the apartment was a great place to kick back and relax (and watch the World cup) as well. Little touches like umbrella, hairdryer, etc were nice things to have. We couldn't have asked for more with this apartment or the host-Alex was extremely friendly, accessible and professional. Would highly recommend this apartment for a couple, small family or a group of friends traveling in Rome.

  • Our flight was delayed when we arrived, but there was no problem re-arranging to meet Alex to get the keys. The flat is exactly as shown in the photos, very clean and modern. Alex was also very responsive when we contacted him during our stay about a couple of issues. Alex also kindly let us leave our bags for a few hours after we had officially checked out before we actually left for the airport.

    It's a fantastic location as everything is within walking distances, which is after all the best way to get around Rome. It's right in the heart of things so lots of activity!
    Overall this is a great apartment to stay in to explore city life in Rome.

  • Great place! Very central and Alex recommended a top notch eatery just a stones throw away :-)

  • Alex welcomed us and showed us around the apartment which is very comfortable and as seen in the pictures and has everything you need. The location is excellent as we were able to walk to all the major sights with no problems. Alex responded very quickly when we had a problem with the door lock and helped us solve the issue. Just a technique thing with the key.
    We recommend the airport pickup which also meant we had someone who knew how to find the apartment in Rome's confusing (initially) streets.

  • Wonderful apartment in Rome! Arrived at the apartment via a recommended driver from Alex... Easy transport from fiumicino. Totally worth it. Dimitri met us at the apt within 5 minutes! Gave fabulous recommendations for dinner - Osterica de fortunata is a must! Best location - 5 min walk to pantheon or campo de fiori, 10 min to piazza Navona, 12 min walk to forum. Had a little hiccup with the water heater but was remedied immediately by Alex and the owner. Great place to stay. Highly recommend!! Thanks Alex and dimitri for making our Roma stay the best!

  • The apartment is in a very good location. Piazza Venezia is 5mins walk away, 4 stops by bus (number 40) from Termini airport. The apartment is in a good condition and fairly clean.

    There is a BUT though:
    - I was due to meet one of Alex's employees at agreed time. I was running 1hr late due to plane delays. I texted and emailed Alex 40mins ahead of the agreed time. None of these were received apparently. Instead I got a call from Alex who sounded frustrated, on the border of being rude telling me off for being late and saying that I was delaying his employee and that his other clients will suffer delays because of me (Too much information? I should think so).
    Note to anyone thinking of booking this apartment, call if you are running late as other popular means of communication apparently don't work. The last thing you want at the start of your holiday break is someone being rude to you, making it sound as if you as a customer was providing services and not the other way round!!
    - we stayed there for 2 nights with a check out on Sunday, which means that we had to pay extra charge of €20 for cleaning services. This means that we paid €72 in total (including tax) for cleaning services for 2 nights for 3 people. That, fairly expensive price gave us no toilet paper and no soap in the bathroom. Surely, this could have been provided at minimum..
    Floors were definitely not mopped ahead of our arrival as quite dusty, especially in the living room
    - last but not least, there were 3 of us. The advert clearly says that there are 2 beds and the apartment can accommodate 3 people, however, only on the arrival we found out that there is only one bed in the bedroom and one living room sofa bed that you cant really sleep on. We were offered a blow up mattress as 'bed' option for a 3rd person.. I am mentioning this as it was quite disappointing to discover this on arrival only, and I would like Alex to mention this in his advert, otherwise it's unfair on his customers.

    All in all, if you are looking for a good location in Rome, you should go ahead and book this one. I have had a great experience with Airbnb so far and I would like it to stay this way, that's why I will definitely look for alternative options next time I come back to Rome.

    Response from Alessandro:

    Dear Joanna, if the cleaning and bed were not sufficient then it would have been best to let us know during your stay. Telling us that there was some dust afterwards doesn't help make your stay any more comfortable.

    In my line of business text messages commonly don't make it when a guest is travelling, a heads up for all travellers. And your email arrived 4 hours afterwards so I'm not sure if there was a technical error. Nevertheless 40 minutes ahead is not enough time for schedules to be changed and one should always call. I'm running multiple properties so if flights are delayed then the landlord should be notified prior to boarding.

    The second bed is also listed as an Air-bed and it always has been. I may have come across as frustrated but never rude, I was speaking to someone that to my knowledge was late without having contacted me and when i got a hold of you…. you were taking a bus for 40 minutes instead of a €5 taxi from the station.

    Thanks for all the information, you were a lovely guest.

  • We had a great stay at Alessandro's apartment. Meeting up to collect the keys was easy, the apartment was fairly clean and had everything needed in terms of kitchenware, towels, etc...

    It is super central, being less than a 10 minute walk to most of the attractions in Rome. Vatican City is a little further away from the apartment, but even that was only a 20-25 minute walk.

    I would definitely stay there again.

  • This is a modern, comfortable and impeccably clean apartment in a bustling neighborhood close to most of the main sights in Rome's centro storico. It's also just a short 10 minute walk across Ponte Garibaldi right into the heart of Trastevere. Alessandro was a great host who was always responsive whenever I had any questions during my stay. Next time I'm in Rome, I hope to stay at one his properties again.
