Angela’s flat is located in San Lorenzo, an amazing area full of life, nice shops, great and cheap bars. However, the flat is far from the center of Rome and the touristic area, and ten minutes away from Termini station.
The drawbacks of the flat are numerous: no internet, no breakfast, no access to the kitchen, a shared bathroom, the bed is not a real one but comfortable, and also a lot of noise coming from Angela’s daughter, especially in the morning.
Angela and her daughter are nice but we advise you to check the house rules before renting the room, because they’re very strict. Our plane was at 4 PM and we had to leave the room at 9 AM on a sunday morning because the host wouldn’t want us to stay. The rules…
For what it is, the price is expensive. So think twice and read the house rules carefully, or check other places in San Lorenzo (the best neighborhood in Roma if you want to live roman students nights after your touristic days!
Angela is a sweet and helpful host with a great and CLEAN apartment. The room is spacious with a comfy pull-out sofa bed. There is no air conditioner (which shouldn't be surprising as it seems to be the norm) but there is a fan which was plenty enough to keep the room cool on warm nights. The thing I appreciated most was the screens on the windows, so you were able to keep them open without having to worry about mosquitos. None of the other places we stayed had screens on the windows and I was eaten alive. This was not a problem at Angela's!
The apartment is in a convenient location with 2 tram (streetcar or cable car) lines just around the corner. Most of the big sights are just a 10-20 min tram ride away with no more than one transfer. There are also plenty of restaurants and bars nearby plus a good sized market and a couple internet points (there is no wifi in the apartment)
We had no issues while staying here but there are a couple things to note before booking:
-Because the kitchen is also the living space, you will not be able to use it. There is also no eating in the room. I know some travelers like to buy groceries to save on meals but this will not be an option. But as I said, there are plenty of places to eat around, with affordable options.
-Angela has a young daughter living with her. This shouldn't be a problem for anyone as her daughter is very sweet (she even invited us to watch a movie with her, which we gladly did!) but I feel it is something that people might like to know before coming so they aren't surprised :) They do violin lessons every day but not until 11am, so I would imagine most people will be up and about by then!
-There is a bit of street noise because the window of the room is right along the sidewalk. This may not be an issue with the windows closed but it was too warm to keep the windows closed while we were staying there.
Overall, we had a fantastic stay in Rome and being able to stay with Angela in a great and well located apartment was very helpful. We are so thankful to Angela and her daughter for letting us stay with them!
Nous avons été très bien accueillis, Angela est super sympa, et l'appartement très joli. Je recommande cette adresse parce qu'elle est très bien communiqué avec les endroits à visiter à Rome. Le café de Angela est très bon, merci!
