Overview

Rome Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Up to 4 people close to the center and free bikes

Bed & Bike 3 Parks is a recently renovated apartment of 50 square meters consisting of:

- One bedroom with double bed

- A well equipped kitchen opening onto a large living room. The living room has a double sofa bed.

- A bathroom with a large and comfortable shower and a toilet with built-in bidet .

5 reasons to choose the Bed & Bike Parks 3 :

1 . You'd feel right at home, in an elegant and cosy apartment offering all the comforts of a real home. If you want to cook you have a fully equipped kitchen, otherwise you can watch television or a DVD, or surf the Internet or listen to music or read a book about Rome that you find in the small library.

2 . You could make the experience of visiting Rome by riding a bicycle. In fact, you would have at your disposal, free of charge, up to 4 folding bikes with helmets and chains. In the house there are also city maps and cycle lanes guides. The only rule to follow is to ask for the 3rd and 4th bike before arrival and make a caution deposit of € 50 per bike only in case you want to use them.

3 . If you have babies you do not have to worry because they are very welcome. In fact, we provide our guests with a cot, a high chair, different games and books as well as a stroller.

4 . You would live in a beautiful and quiet residential area, very close and well connected to city center: Trieste / Coppedè area. Just twenty minutes away on foot is Villa Borghese (Borghese Gallery ) and at less than 30 minutes via Veneto. At 50 meters from home there is a bus stop from where depart 3 buses which, in 15 /20 minutes, lead you directly to the historic center . Only the Vatican is a bit far from home because it is located on the other side of Tevere river. However, Vaticano can be reached by taking a tram departing very close to home. The apartment is called 3 Parks because it is in the middle of a very green area of ??Rome , between Villa Borghese, Villa Ada and Villa Torlonia.

5 . You do not even think about cleaning the house, because the final cleaning is included in the rate. If you stay for more than a week, we also provide a change of sheets and towels and every week we clean the apartment at no extra cost for you.

- 4 folding bikes each one with helmet, pump and chain. 2 bikes are already in the house, whereas the other 2 bikes are available upon request

About Roberta

I am a 40 years old girl who started this activity very recently. Previously I was a manager of an American multinational and I did not have time to do anything else but working behind a PC during all day. This has been a very alienating experience for me. Now I am happier because, one of the greatest sides of this job, is to know a lot of interesting people all around the world and make them feel at home in my flat. A little task but that can make people happy and give me a lot of satisfaction.

For this reason I have made my flat more comfortable I could, also for families with small kids. In fact, being the mother of a 3 years old girl, I know how difficult is to travel with small babies.

When I was younger I travelled a lot, but I never liked the feeling of a being a tourist. To catch the real spirit of the new place I was visiting, I usually rent a bike and went around with not a precise destination. Since I have tried to put a personal trait in the apartment, I have decided to give my guests the opportunity to discover the city by bike.

Apart from travelling, I love reading, especially political-economic essays and thrillers, listening to classic, cool jazz and ’70s rock music, cooking for my friends and swimming. Before I brake my knees ligaments, I also loved jogging, biking and playing tennis. Hope that in the near future I can resume these activities.

Roberta purchased this apartment in 2001

The apartment was lovely!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were so happy we chose to stay at Roberta's apartment. It was LOVELY & the shower was amazing!!!! Roberta went above & beyond to help us with directions of how to get to her place & even offering to send a driver to pick us up from the airport. Roberta even had a few items for us to snack on for breakfast in case we didnt have any groceries with us. We also were so excited to know the apartment was close to Villa Borghese. Unfortunately we did not book tickets on line & were not able to see the museum as they were sold out. (We strongly encourage to pre-book way ahead as when we went Sat they were selling tickets for the following Wed.) We also walked to the Colosseum from Roberta's. She told us which bus to take but on our way we decided to walk instead. It only took about an hour to get there on foot & is a beautiful walk. if we are able to come to Roma again, we would definitely book with Roberta. The apartment was so clean & it is close to two grocery stores, pizzarias, banks, & coffee shops.

Great neighbourhood

  • 4 of 5

Our host was very helpful providing information about the neighbourhood and directions for getting around on public transit. We enjoyed being in an area away from the big tourist attractions and populated with regular Romans. The apartment was spacious and clean and just what we wanted for our week in Rome.

Quality lodging in a quality location

  • 3 of 5

If you want to experience life in a Roman neighborhood but within walking distance (+/- 30 minutes) of some major attractions this is a wonderful place to have as a home base. Just the right size for the two of us, clean and well equipped, it is close to supermarkets, restaurants, pharmacies, banks and public transportation. It made our one week stay as living like Romans very enjoyable. Unfortunately like many other reviewers, we did not have the pleasure of meeting Roberta as she was like many other of her Italian counterparts on their annual vacation time, her friend Giuliana was very helpful at setting us up. Definitely a nice place to stay in in a great Roman neighborhood. We would do it again. Michel S.

Owner's Response: Dear Michel, I am happy you had a nice time in my flat and you enjoyed the area where it is located. It would also have been my pleasure to welcome and attend you personally as I had done with my other guests. In fact, for me, the most enjoyable part of hosting people is to know my guests with whom, in some cases, I have also started a durable and trustable relationship. This week, for example, I will have a couple of guests who are coming back and I am very happy to see them again. However, I am happy that Giuliana has been very helpful in setting you up. I hope that there will be other opportunities to host you so I can meet both of you. I really appreciate you spent your time to make a review. Most kindest regards, Roberta

The perfect location

  • 5 of 5

When we stay in a place we like I am reluctant to post a review because I am afraid the place will become to popular and we won't be able to book in again. That is not fair to Roberta so here goes. Quiet, peaceful neighborhood, beautifully equipped apartment, plenty of shops and restaurants nearby. Short walk to the Borghese Gallery and another ten minutes to the Spanish steps. Roberta could not have been more helpful. We had planned to use buses but a medical condition forced us to use taxis when we needed to go some distance away. No matter Roberta called them for us and we never missed an appointment. We recommend this apartment to anyone who likes peace and quiet. Thank you Roberta.

A Fantastic Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Roberta met us when we arrived quite late in the evening and she was there to see us off at the end of our holiday, too. She welcomed us into her flat which is spacious and sparklingly clean. It has a comfortable double bed, an excellent kitchen and a roomy bathroom. Roberta's attention to detail makes you feel as though you were in your own home.

The flat is in a quiet and safe neighbourhood about half an hour's walk from the centre of the city and very close to a good public bus service. There are a range of good restaurants nearby.

Roberta gave us loads of useful information about places to see, restaurants to go to, etc. She had it all written down in her own brochure which she gave to us. She really couldn't have been more helpful.

We've stayed in various apartments in various cities over the years and this is certainly one of the best.

WONDERFUL APPARTMENT

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this wonderful appartment, that is located in a beautiful area. The description of the appartment is very accurate. It is modern, light, clean , a lot of space in a nice and quit but alsy lively area where you can also find nice restaurants and shops. Villa Borghese is very close and a beautiful Park worthwile to visit. The owner, Roberta was very helpful. In the flat you can also find a booklet with all kind of helpful information .

To get into the centre of Rome is very easy, the busstop is around the corner and if you prefer the Metro, also possible but a 15 minute walk.

We enjoyed our stay very much and will certainly reccommend it to our friends and family.

The apartment is on the way 3 Parks Garigliano 88, in the district of Trieste, north-central area of ??the city. The area is one of the most elegant areas of Rome. It 'very close and well connected to the historic center. Via Veneto is just 2 km away and can be reached via a pleasant half-hour walk or with folding bikes that we provide to our guests.

3 Parks is located in the center of one of the 3 most beautiful parks in Rome - Villa Borghese, Villa Ada and Villa Torlonia. Within walking distance you will also find historic buildings of the Florentine architect Gino Coppedè, built in original style that reminds me a little 'Art Nouveau.
