About Marco

mok'house is primarily a concept of hospitality: our aim is to ensure that our guests really get to know the real Rome, avoiding the tourist traps and making the most out of their stay. We like to reccomend the best solutions according to the taste and interests of our guests.

mok'house is the result of hundreds of trips for study, work and holiday, a master's degree in hotel management and 10 years of experience in customer care in major global sport events (Olympics and World Cup).

Marco purchased this apartment in 1901

Why Marco chose Rome

I was so lucky I didn't have to buy it: my great grand father bought this building at the beginning of the past century (1901). Now that is one of the most famous neighbourhood of Rome (the 1st and most ancient too), I started this business with the aim of giving the best of Rome to my guests!

What makes this apartment unique

All our guests also have access to our rooftop terrace, the ideal space to enjoy a glass of wine while admiring a stunning sunset, having a BBQ (upon request), or play chess while listening to music.

You will live right in the heart of the true Rome: we are in the so called 'Rione Monti', 10mins walking from the Coliseum and walking distance from all the main monuments. The area is alive but not noisy. The restaurants and the wine bars that populate our neighbourhood are the best in the city.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Mok'House was a great place to stay - clean, comfortable, convenient. The hosts were a pleasure to deal with and provided many helpful suggestions from beginning to end. Rooftop deck was lovely, especially at sunset. Apartment was modern and well cared for. We would love to return some day.

What a great place to stay in middle of Rome!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had the opportunity to vacation in Rome the in July. We were fortunate enough that we "found" MokHouse and Marco. The accommodations were better than advertised, and Marco's attentative manner was above and beyond what we expected. His excellent English made communications very easy. His recommendations for sight seeing and restaurants were spot on as well. One cannot go wrong staying at the MokHouse!

Book now before it's gone!

  • 5 of 5


Before reading this review, go to the booking page on whatever site you are on and book an apartment at Mok House - you will not be disappointed...... Now that you have done that, you can relax and read my review. I sent my payment on line and done! A place to stay in Rome guaranteed, frustration over. Mok House exudes vacation - what a location and what an apartment! Location, location location - 10 minute walk from termini,15 from colosseum, 5 from two other subway stops, 5 from a taxi stand, shops, wonderful restaurants, hidden restaurants, quick food, supermarkets, mini markets, coffee shops, even a Chinese place just up the street and shawarma place around the corner if you are interested (we weren't :-) Mok House is located in the Monti area. We stayed in the "Classic Apartment." It is a very large two bedroom, two bath, full kitchen and large living area. One of the two couches has a pullout. We were three, but I could see four - five staying very comfortably. One shower was smallish (I am biggish) but I got used to it - staying at Mok House is like staying at a friends house, after a day or two, you get used to where the light switches are, etc. Bring bar soap and shampoo along (soft soap is supplied) The kitchen is fully stocked with utensils and even coffee! It has a cooktop but no oven. There is a clothes washer, drying racks in the master walk in closet (clothes dried overnight) it is good for small washes. Plenty of bedding. Internet good and fast in living room, farther away from front door it would deteriorate - no big deal. We stayed in January, as is we didn't make use of the roof top patio (that looked awesome) The heating was fine. Standard radiator heat - these operated quietly at night. During the day you could add additional heat by wall mounted heat/AC units. These would supply AC in the hot months - they were very quiet in the heat mode. The floors are tiled, I wish I would have brought my birkenstocks along to pad around in. Some reviewers complained about noise - well if you want silence book your vacation in Edgerton Wisconsin, if you want to hear the sounds of life stay in Rome! It wasn't noisy.Sylvia welcomed us warmly on our unexpected early arrival and helped we very weary travelers to our apartment. Claudia came up later to check and share a wonderful cup of coffee with us. We finally metMarco, the owner, the next day. The guy just lives and breaths service. Stay at Mok House - you'll love it!

Great spot in Rome!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the mok'house was wonderful! Making a reservation was easy and Marco and his staff got back to us anytime we emailed a question. There was never a moment when the accomodations didn't work for us. From the minute we arrived, Claudia helped us to feel welcome and at home. Our first glass of wine on the roof top deck was heavenly! We can't thank Claudia enough for her time and consideration. She knew everything about our neighborhood and helped us with walking directions, finding places to eat, suggestions for activities, confirming our car for a tour, arranging our pick up to return to the airport, etc. etc. In addition, Claudia was charming and funny! The apartment was great - exactly as presented but better than we ever imagined it could be. It was great having a kitchen as well as common space for our group of 6. There were some very hot days while we were in Rome and the air conditioning worked perfectly - we were never uncomfortable. The location of mok'house was so convenient for walking as well as getting a cab if necessary. We have only positive things to stay - it's a fabulous place to stay.

Mok House Excellence!

  • 5 of 5

The Mok House was perfect for our stay in Rome. It was conveniently located to shops, the Santa Maggiore church, the Termini station and the metro stop. The accommodations let you feel as if you are a long time resident of Rome. The view from the terrace is so beautiful and we spent some evenings on the rooftop enjoying wine and great company. We loved the fact that they had games, beverages and amenities stocked at the terrace. The staff was helpful for all of our needs and helped me book tickets to the Coliseum since I had lost some time due to a flight delay. On check out day, they let us store our luggage so that we could continue touring and come back later. I will highly recommend Mok House to others headed to Rome. It was undeniably a great choice for our vacation. My group gives this a unanimous "thumbs up"!

A gem in Rome.

  • 5 of 5

Everything was wonderful. The apartment was beautiful, comfortable, clean, really spacious and had everything we needed to spend a week. The location is excelent: a few steps from Santa Maria Maggiore and very close to the Coloseum. There are two supermarkets close. Metro also. Monti is a beautiful region. Silvia, the host, was really nice and friendly. She also showed us a map of Rome and gave a lot of tips. We were in 6 and spent a wonderful week there. The only and minor complaint is about Internet connexion, which was really slow. When we return to Rome, we would certainly stay there again.

When in Rome ....

  • 5 of 5

When in Rome you really must consider staying at the Moka Classic apartment. It is very local to all of the tourist attractions, we walked everywhere, in a lovely safe neighbourhood with supermarkets, bakeries and restaurants all close by.

The apartment, its self, is very spacious, extremely clean and has everything you could possible want.

The owners cannot do enough to make your stay an enjoyable one, without being too intrusive, and even put milk in the fridge for us as we were checking in after the supermarket's were shut. There was plenty of guide books on the book shelf and the lady that checked us in had provided a map with supermarkets, metros and interesting walks already marked.

Our stay in Rome was a lovely one and being able to return to such a lovely apartment after a busy day sightseeing made it even more special.

Owner's Response: Dear, thank you for having appreciated mok'house experience, in the true heart of the Eternal City: the "Rione Monti", the most ancient neighborhood of Rome. We are passionate hosts inspired by the "MOKA", we love to offer you a genuine and intense hospitality experience, like a homemade espresso, making you feel at home rather than simply a “guest”. Thank you again for your lovely review!!! Arrivederci...
