Wonderful apartment in great location!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, modern apartment in tranquil location. All fixtures up to date, including modern bathroom with plenty of hot water. Fast wireless internet access, practical small kitchenette and airy charm complete the picture. We have found Rome somewhat to busy in the past - this location was quiet, next to a local park full of trees. Close to tram and subway, so very easy to get into the busier tourist centers. Would definitely stay here again. Great apartment for 2 persons. Francesco was super helpful and completely trust worthy - no worries needed.

Perfect Home Away From Home for Your Roman Holiday

  • 5 of 5

All the essential amenities you need for your home away from home. Very clean, cozy, and big enough to accommodate a party of three. The apt is centrally located between two metro stations, various bus lines, and tram #3 to explore Rome. Most importantly, easy access to the two nearest airports in Rome. There's a small grocery store near by for fresh produce or take away prepared meals. The Colosseum is within 10 minutes by foot from the apt. Piazza Venezia is a stone throw away from the Colosseum and the rest of Rome's historical landmarks.

The owner was prompt to greet us upon our arrival and departure and provided a list of local restaurants away from the tourist traps (Thank you!!!). By the way husband was very grateful for the restaurants recommendation washing machine in the apt. Highly recommend this place for your Roman holiday. We'll definitely stay there again for ours.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for five days when visiting Rome. It was the perfect location, we walked everywhere and we were surrounded by great food venues. The apartment fits the description well. Francesco especially was very attentive and responsive to all of our questions.

My husband and I recently stayed in this apartment for 5 nights, on our first visit to Rome. All I can say is that it was a really great place to stay. the location was ideal for the sightseeing that we wanted to do. You can actually walk to the Colloseum in about 20 minutes or i think you could also take a metro which was like one stop, but we didnt even bother with that. We felt like it was a "real" neighbourhood of Rome, away from the hordes of tourists, but close enough to everything, which we really liked. The restaurants close by were great and cheaper than the tourist traps in the city centre (of which we tried a few and were less than impressed). We also explored the area of Testaccio (which is 5 minute walk) which has some of the best trattorias and pizzerias in rome according to my guide book. We ate a really good pizza in a place called "Remo" which was super authentic and rustic..with equally rustic waiting staff!!

The apartment was clean, modern and the owner friendly and helpful.Francesco answered all our questions and spoke perfect English (which always makes things easier), so everything we could have wished for. Would 100% reccomend it to anyone planning a visit.

The 'Jasmine House' is ideally located in the Aventino area which is close to many sights of interest, including the Colosseum (only ten minutes walk), the Circus Maximus and the Baths of Caracalla. It is also within easy walking distance of the historic and culinary areas of Testaccio and Trastevere (lively areas full of exquisite restaurants and a vibrant nightlife). The apartment itself is on a quiet street which is very safe, yet close enough to all the action of the city centre!

There are two metro stops located within walking distance of the apartment, Piramide and Circo Massimo. This means that there are convenient transport links to and from the airport as well as other parts of the city. This really is the best location to explore all of Rome and the many delights it has to offer.
