My boyfriend and I stayed at Anke's place for a long weekend in Rome and we absolutely loved it. The apartment was extremely clean and recently renovated. Although we didn't use the loft in the main living space or the other bedroom, we thought it was such a cool concept and would've loved to have friends stay with us. We slept with the windows open and felt extremely safe. The San Lorenzo neighborhood had three amazing restaurants near Anke's that we went to each night. They were all 5 minutes walking distance from the apartment. There were also gelato shops, bars and cafes within walking distance too! Although Anke's place is not extremely close to the main tourist attractions, we had no problems getting to the Colloseum/ Vatican etc. by tram and metro. It was overall a very enjoyable stay in Rome and we would definitely stay at Anke's again!!

Had a great stay here! Would recommend to others. Just be sure to know how the Tram and bus routes work (location is a little out of the way). Anke was an amazing host!

Anke war easy to talk to and the communication went really well. She showed us the flat and told us how to get into the city, where to find a good restaurant ect... The flat was really nice and full of little details and the interior design well thought through. We enjoyed our visit. Thanks a lot.

We loved our stay here. The apartment is spacious and well equipped. It is easy to cook in the kitchen and there is a washing machine and dishwasher. The bed is comfortable. The suburb seems to be up and coming with a lot of good restaurants and a supermarket literally around the corner. If you like walking, you can definitely walk to the main sites. We walked to the colloseum, vatican, Spanish Steps and the Trevi Fountain. It's about 1 - 1.5 hours to walk to the Vatican, depending on how many stops you have. Anke was great to deal with and responded quickly. Despite not being able to meet us for check in, the key pick up went smoothly and everything was clear. I would highly recommend staying here.

Anke was nice and very corect. Equipped and cozy apartment. Its location is in a neighborhood populated by students outside the Old City walls. The streets are characterized by graffiti on the walls. Distance from the train station is about a 15-20 minute walk

I was born and grew up in East-Berlin. After studying, working and traveling in different countries and continents I moved to Rome, Italy in 2000.

Now, after all those years, I almost feel like Roman. I love Rome and Italy a lot which can in no small part be attributed to one of the greatest gifts of the Italians: their hospitality. And that’s what I would like you to experience while staying at "ankecasa":


I would like to welcome you and to make your stay comfortable at the place where me and my family spent precious time: where I started my exploration of the Eternal City, where we saw our children grow and last but not least where we welcomed friends and people from all over the world.

We had to change place. But I’m happy to still accommodate guests in our original home!
