The flat has 2 comfortable sofa beds futon, in the living room there is the main double and on the mid level of the flat there is the single, but I think you have seen these details by the photos of the advert and the description which are very clear.
There are not separated bedrooms, it has more levels inside.
This is one of the WIMDU places where one is sorely tempted not to write too enthusiastically about, lest it is booked solid when you ever want to come back. The apartment is located in a very posh neighborhood of Northern Rome named Parioli (lots of embassies etc). No surprise that the quarter is packed with nice restaurants, shops and up market food stores etc.. Right across the street is an excellent pizza place called “La Parioli” that became our favorite. It is usually packed with Romans which is always a good sign (--> make a reservation, especially on weekends or eat well before 8 pm when the place starts to fill up). The many embassies also have the nice side effect that police is never far and I would rate Parioli one of the safest if not the safest and quietest neighborhood in central Rome. The great thing is that despite these obvious advantages, all the major sights of Rome are just a 30 minute walk away. A reasonably fit person can cross the Villa Borghese park (also great for running) and be on the Spanish steps in 25 minutes. If you don’t like walking, there is a direct bus to Termini station (Number 223) or trams number 3 and 19 within reasonable walking distance (600 m/yards).
The place itself is something very special and unique. It looks as if it was originally a janitor’s/caretaker’s/chauffeur’s apartment and is located in the inner courtyard of a classic Rome apartment block from the late 19th century. The best way to describe it is a free standing bungalow in the inner courtyard. It is only accessible by descending a stair, so it is decidedly not suitable for handicapped persons (but the owner points this out). If one opens all the shutters, the place is very light but the downside is that people have a clear view at you from the surrounding apartments. We were there in March but I would imagine that the place is also very cool during the stifling hot summer months. The furnishing is adequate, no-nonsense IKEA fare down to the brightly colored sheets. There is a small fully equipped kitchen (no oven) and a very small but sufficient fridge. To us, eating out quickly loses its appeal if you have to do it every day so it was nice to be able to occasionally make simple dishes like Spaghetti Aglio I Olio or cook some artichokes to be enjoyed with some wine after a long day of sightseeing. A particular PLUS for the place are three things that can –at least from our past experience- prove sore points in Italy. One: there is plenty of hot water for all occupants to have decent showers in the morning! Two and three: The heating system works in cold weather and the AC works in hot weather! The owner, Emanuela, is very helpful and will provide you with loads of useful information before you arrive. She also responds to e-mails and text messages within an hour at the most. Her assistant, Mauro, speaks good English and explained the workings of the place well. Our seven days have been an altogether memorable experience and we will definitely be back!
very good location.
The apartment was good and clean.The negative was the smell of damp and that there was no daylight.
We absolutely felt in love with Emanuela's place! Best choise for staying in Rome - Parioli is a beautiful district, well-located, not very touristic, with great places for dinner and breakfast nearby (We loved a lot our breakfasts with fresh croissants in Il Dodo (2 mins from flat - just cross the street, and dinner in La Pariolina - same located just at the opposite side of the street). The supermarket is also in walking distance.
The flat itself is just terrific. First of all, it is a real "villa" inside the house :) If you will go there you will understand what I mean :) Very tidy, spacious, full of light, 2 comfortable bedrooms (although we were 2 couples and 1 room had 2 separate beds we had a comfortable sleep for 3 nights). There are even windows in the ceiling which we loved a lot! The bathroom is spacious and clean, the kitchen is very comfortable and well-equipped.
Emanuela's assistant Mauro was very polite and was waiting for us when we were late due to the tough traffic in Rome (if you travel in the evening by car from the Southern part of Rome - estimate your staying in the traffic for at least 2 hours, as the flat is located just in the opposite part of Rome). Although we've found a free parking near the home next day we dropped off the car as it is almost impossible to drive it in Rome - better choose a scooter :D
Villa Borghese is just 20 mins walking, the city centre - 40 mins by foot or 15 mins by bus. We have chosen walking and enjoyed the beautiful streets of Rome.
We did not meet Emanuela herself, but she communicates with us very responsibly and she is very reliable, she gave us all directions and a lot of tips before our arrival to Rome, which we appreciate a lot.
Emanuela, thank you for everything! We enjoyed our stay and definitely next time in Rome will come back to your place!
Grazie mille and buona fortuna!
The apartment is in a fantastic place, in trevi, it's small and has facilities for short stays. There is only a narrow window that we keep covered with the blind because is on the street level.
We spent 3 nights at this apartment during a long weekend in Rome. The apartment is very nice and stays cool during the hot days. It has all the stuff that one could need and the location is just fantastic, right in the middle of Trastevere but remains very quiet and silent during the night.
Everything was really good organized by Emanuela and Mauro and we really think is an excellent solution for visiting Rom!
Just an information: you barely see the host, it is really just an apartment for you and maybe this is something slightly different that other Wimdu possibilities.
We loved it in Rome! The appartment is very practical and in a lovely area, away from the big crowds but still close to the center of the city. There are lots of little shops and restaurants.
The only minus was that there was not a lot of water available but this was a minor problem. We would definetely recommend it to other guests!
We had a lovely time in Emanuela's flat. It is well equipped with all you need for a city break and within proximity to a couple of supermarkets and a bakery. It is situated in the Northern part of Rome in a lovely, quiet and very charming neighborhood. It took us about 20 minutes to reach Termini by bus, which was done very easily as the bus stop is literally outside the door. The restaurants in the area are fantastic and we ended up going back to eat in Via Parioli every night, as the atmosphere, food, quality and people were fantastic there compared to the tourist hustle and bustle in central Rome.
Emanuela was a lovely and caring host and Mauro took good care of us upon arrival.
We had 5 days in Parioli appartement. It's very comfortable and clean. I can sleep well in this flat. Thank Mauro and Emanuela for the kindly helps. I hope to see you again in Rome.
The apartment is in an upper class neighbourhood in Rome. It is very quiet, located in the middle of an apartment complex. Bus stop within 50 meters and good restaurants, bakery and park in around the corner. Parking is a bit difficult, because it is quite busy with traffic.
The apartment is very clean and pleasant; good beds. We missed some chairs and a table to sit outside.
Emanuela is very supportive if any questions arise! A la prossima volta!
Nice apartment. Very clean. Emanuela is helpful and very friendly.
The neighborhood is nice with many great restaurants (we recommend the one just in front of the house) and cafes. The bus stop is close an it takes about 15-20 minutes to go to Termini station.
We enjoyed our stay very much! :)
