Hello I'm Serena I was born and live in Rome, I'm an architect. I like travelling a lot and discovering new cultures.
We strongly recommend to stay at Serena's appartement, you won't regret it. Serena is full of advices to visit Rome. The flat is well situated to visit Rome, you can see everything without taking metro. The coliseo is just 5 minutes walking. It take 15 minutes walking from the Termini station to join the place. It is easy to find. The only negative point is : there isn't Wifi in the flat. But, The appartement is very nice, spotless and decorated with taste. You have all you need inside. Also she provided us pasta, home made cookies, coffee, tea, fruits... Thank you for all, Serena!
I stayed in Rome for two nights, mainly to meet up with friends - couldn't have made a better choice for location - right in the middle of sociable Rione Monti, with tons of great little wine bars, trattorie and restaurants on cobbled streets, yet just a stone's throw away from the madness and wonders of Tourist Rome!
Serena is a warm, friendly host, full of cool advice on things to do/see - and her flat is superb - tucked away off a small back courtyard, so quiet that you almost can't believe you're in Rome - it's decorated with care, yet also functional, has a great shower (I can't forgive a bad shower!) and a double pull-down bed which is extraordinarily sturdy and comfortable. Serena's extra touches, from her mum's amazing ring shaped biscuits, to coffee and fruit in the fridge for snacking, made me feel well cared for.
If I have one, and just one TINY word of caution it's this: roaming/internet connection in the flat was almost non-existent. In a sense this could be a godsend for some (getting away from it all, etc)... However, I found myself having to pop into the courtyard to send text messages, upload pics, check maps/wiki etc - only a minor inconvenience as I had lovely weather, but in the colder/wetter season might be a bit of a pain.
I think Serena is looking into a wi-fi connection which I think would be incredibly useful...
Regardless of this, I'd still happily stay there again and recommend Serena's flat wholeheartedly!
The house is really nice and cosy. Always clean and with all what we needed during our stay. The location is just perfect and many things are at just some minutes walking. For two people it is perfect and for three it starts to be a bit tight. Serena was a great host and she gave us some advices for our visit. I really recommend this place if you are planning to visit Rome.
We stayed in Serena's place for two nights at the beginning of October. It was amazing! Serena gave us a lot of great recommendations and the apartment itself is so well put together. Serena has thought of every detail to make you feel at home while in Rome. The apartment is also really close to the major sites, including the Colosseum, and in a very lively area. I would definitely recommend this apartment and would hope to stay here again one day.
Serena's apartment was so lovely, and in such a great location. We loved it! There was a little art show going on across the street the night we arrived, and a tiny plaza full of people enjoying the night and sharing a drink about 100 meters away. The restaurants in the area were great - not too touristy. And we stumbled on a funky little fashion market down the street on our last day there. It was walking distance to the Coliseum and the Trevi Fountain.
The apartment itself was very comfortable for two people. It was very clean and well-decorated, and Serena's mom had made some delicious cookies to welcome us. I was a little apprehensive about the sofa bed before we arrived, but it was actually really comfy, and we slept very well. When we arrived, Serena gave us some great tips on good walks in the city, and even helped us arrange a taxi to get to the airport.
Thank you for being such a welcoming hostess, Serena! We would love to stay again!
My mother loved staying here. Serena is a fabulous host and monti is wonderful area, buzzing with art, design and life.
Квартира расположена в небольшом городке. Хорошее место, если хотите отдохнуть среди настоящих Итальянцев. Квартира очень удобная, уютная и чистая. На кухне найдете все необходимую посуду. Расположена недалеко от пляжа 5 мин. медленным шагом. К сожалению в ней не было интернета, но им можно воспользоваться в ближайших барах.
Хозяева очень приветливые и отзывчивые. Встретили нас вкусной домашней выпечкой и конфетами.
Спасибо за хороший отдых!
The apartment is located in a small town. A good place if you want to relax among real Italians. The apartment is very comfortable, cozy and clean. The kitchen has all required dishes. Located not far from the beach 5 minutes. slow pace. Unfortunately there was no Internet, but you can use it in the nearest bars.
The hosts are very friendly and responsive. Greeted us delicious homemade cakes and sweets.
Thank you for the nice stay!
Andrew and Elizabeth.
Karen and I enjoyed our stay in Rome at Serena's place. She was a wonderful and very responsive host and the location was fabulous- very quiet, charming neighborhood, yet close to all the exciting Rome sites. We also found terrific restaurants nearby. We highly recommend.
Мы с женой ездили в свадебное путешествие на побережье Италии и остановились у Серены. Квартира просторная, уютная, чистая и интересная. Очень большая тераса, где можно загарать на шезлонгах.
Спасибо большое Серене за прекрасное жилье для отдыха!
С наилучшими пожеланиями,
Арсений и Айгуль!
I would recommend everyone who is going to Rome to stay in Serenas wonderful flat. She is the most wonderful host and we were greeted with fruit and lovely homemade biscuits. Serena even took the time on beforehand to tell us how to go to the flat from the airport and as great foodies she helped us with restaurant tips in Rome. The area of Rione Monti is hip, modern and trendy but still authentic Rome style with traditional trattorias mixed with newer trendy cafes and wine bars. Make sure not to miss nearby 2Periodico Café at the end of the road with wonderful breakfast and coffee or for homemade and fresh pasta and wonderful food experience, La Carbonara, very close to the flat.Or the Taverna Fori Imperiali run by a kind and welcoming family (try their cacio e pepe pasta with truffles! It is incredible!) I could go on and on but will let you have your own discoverings of the area.
The flat has all amenities, even a walk in closet :-) For shopping Rione Monti has alot of cool shops as well. You will not regret staying here. We went this month of july, where the heat is at its highest but the flat also has AC we couldnt be happier!
Have a fantastic stay in Rome and in Serenas flat! :-)
