San Giovanni (St. John Lateran) apartment description

This loft apartment is located on the first floor of a 19th century Palazzo. Its windows look out directly on a courtyard on one side, and on a garden on the other side.
This 70 square-meter loft apartment is very quiet and comfortable. It is modernly equipped and tastefully furnished. There is wood parquet everywhere except in the bathroom.
This loft-apartment accommodates from four to six persons maximum. Amenities include heating, air-conditioning, and satellite TV with BBC / CNN and many other channels in English, Spanish, French and German. There is also a washing machine and there's a telephone which enables you to call the urban area of Rome (free of charge), and to be called from all over the world.
On the same floor,just divided by a small corridor, there is another apartment for maximum 3 people that can be rented together or separatly. The ammenities are exactly the same. It is also extremely quiet because its windows are directed also on the courtyard.

It is within ten minutes walking distance of famous Basilics like Santa Maria Maggiore, San Giovanni in Laterano, and San Pietro in Vincoli. And of course, the Vatican is close by as well by metro just a few stations.
The area is very safe. There is a very pleasant park -- the Colosseum Gardens -- five minutes away. There are plenty of food stores, restaurants, wine bars, and all types of shopping just next door. The connection with the metro and bus is excellent. Access to museums, the theater, and beaches is very convenient, and you'll find plenty of nightlife for your entertainment.

A perfect place to spend a Roman holiday!

                  About the owner: I am French, half German and married to an Italian man. I have a degree in law from a French University and an MBA of a Madrid business school. When my twins, Teo & Leo, were born in 1996, I was one of the first in Rome to start this activity of renting apartments to tourists through internet. I did not want to work the full day in an office, I wanted to take care of my children and at the same time be related with people from all the world and practice my 5 languages.

                  This property has an extremely good location near the main attractions In Rome ( Colosseum, Forum, Basilics of San Pietro in Vincoli, San Giovanni and Santa Maria Maggiore, 30 minutes walk from Spanish steps, 20 minutes from Trevi Fountain...) The apartment is very quiet.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                  Buses, metro, restaurants, shops, touristic attractions at walking distance. Very good relation quality/price!
