A cozy hideaway on the serene Aventino hill

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for two weeks in January/February. We found it to be comfortable, thoughtfully equipped and cozy. It's a few steps below ground level (hence the high windows), but compensating for that is a door out to a little private patio (too cool to use at this time of year but it would be delightful in spring/summer). The heating system is excellent, and the bed is firm and comfortable with lovely crisp bedding. Marianna is a thoughtful and helpful host. But the best thing of all is the neighbourhood. The Aventino is a leafy, tranquil hilltop with very little traffic and almost no commercial establishments (aside from the superb Apuleius restaurant). But a short walk down the hill in one direction takes you to lively Testaccio with lots of little shops and restaurants , or in another direction to the Circus Maximus metro stop and the Colosseum, or there's an ancient short cut that takes you down to the river where it's only a few minutes into Trastevere. Every evening it's a relief to stroll up the gentle hill and into this calm oasis. Thanks, Marianna--we had a great stay.

Great place, centrally located

  • 5 of 5

Nice and spacious apartment, also surprisingly bright. You will find everything you need for your stay in Rome here, even the guidebook, which we forgot at home.Our kids loved the garden with turtles and cats.

The apartment is located in a very peaceful place, yet very very close to the main Rome attractions. We were travelling with two small children and were able to walk to the Mouth of Truth, Circus Maximus and even Colosseum. For other locations, you will find plenty of buses nearby, or you can use metro.

Monica and Alberto are very nice people to talk to and they also arranged cheap taxi to the airport for us. I would definitely stay again.

Home in Rome

  • 5 of 5

First of all, many thanks to Alberto and Monica!

Finding a good accomodation was very important as I was travelling with my elderly parents.

In this apartment you can find everything you need, plus everything you have left behind, plus many things that you may go without, but when they are there for you, you find them useful, and you can find even more things.

The location is simply perfect - Aventine is a quiet and peaceful neighbourhood with splendid buildings. Within 5 minutes you can enjoy Rome from above.

Although the apartment is 4-5 steps underground, I personally found this positive. It is always cool in there, even if the weather is hot, as it was during my stay.

The apartment was spotlessly clean and adequately furnished.

Although somewhat off the main roads, the area is well-served by the public transportation - two metro stations, plenty of bus and tram lines.

As for eating out - Trastevere is just on the other bank of the river - enoumous selection of trattorias and restaurants.

We had a very pleasant conversation with Alberto and Monica one afternoon - they are very nice people.

Thank you again!

  • 5 of 5

Ein sehr nettes Appartment im Souterrain eines Hauses mit eigenem Zugang und Miniterrasse. Es ist alles vorhanden, was man braucht. Geschäfte Restaurants und Haltestellen des öff. Nahverkehrs in 5-10 Min. zu Fuss erreichbar. Super ruhige Lage! Die Gastgeber sind sehr freundlich und bereiten dem Gast einen sehr herzlichen und hilfsbereiten Empfang. Wir haben uns mit zwei Kindern (11 und 14) sehr wohl gefühlt.

"The apartment is in a lovely, quiet and leafy part of Rome yet still very close to metro and buses, shops and restaurants, and a 10 minute walk to Roman Forum and Colosseum, and close to Trastevere and Testaccio.

The apartment itself had well maintained facilities and was spacious enough for our group (2 adults and a child). The owners even provided basic food provisions which helped with self-catering. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely book the apartment for future trips."
