About the property

2 bedrooms, 2 baths, views of black cedars before the golden sky of Rome

The 65 sqm apartment has 2 bedrooms, a living-dining room, kitchen, bathroom and balcony as well as another WC (with washing machine); Wi-Fi is available. It offers sleeping for 4 people; The beds are 180 x 200 and 140 x 200 respectively. The apartment, in 4. Floor (with elevator) of an ancient palace, was completely restored in 2014 and today combines the charm of the old building with the comfort of the modern. Its particular advantage is its location in the district of Castro Pretorio: in ancient Rome, it was the district of the Praetorian Guard. Today, there are apartments, hotels, offices and embassies, including the German embassy. The proximity to Termini train station - only a 5-minute walk - are in the middle of the city and can be reached by foot or by public transport. On the other hand, you live in a normal neighborhood far away from mass tourism with its overpriced pizzerias and souvenir shops.

The apartment is suitable for all seasons. In the summer, it remains cool thanks to the thick walls and the window shutters, in winter there is the autonomous central heating.

Great location, great space!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful location near the train station, the street was a bit noisy but not overly so for Rome. Betina is a great communicator. The apartment was spotless with no overpowering odors. Five flights up but an small elevator is available if you are tired from your day of hoofing it around Rome. Kitchen is outfitted with everything you might need. No problems with the WiFi. Nice patio. Bed very comfortable! The best sleeping I've had in Italy. The main bathroom sink does leak a bit from the pipes below, just FYI. Would definitely stay here again.

Clean and well equipped

  • 5 of 5

The best equipped and supplied apartment we stayed in this trip. Very nice. Conveint to Termini station, shopping and restaurants. Being on the fourth floor, the elevator was a real plus. The only thing missing was air conditioning. Roma in mid July is Hot! A.couple of nice fans helped, but AC would be a real plus.

wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect place to stay if you want to easily get around Rome and surrounding areas. The access to the train is so convenient for traveling to/from the airport and around the area. The apartment is lovely, comfortable and safe. The best part is that Dr Kern is very good about responding and coordinating arrangements. I would highly recommend ! We had a lovely stay .

Small but well designed; great location

  • 4 of 5

The apartment worked well for us! It is a marvel of efficient design, well furnished/equipped and very close to Termini Station. Big windows and a nice old building and a quiet street. A few things to note: there is no AC, which was fine for us because of temps when we visited, but could make it hot at other times. I also found the information about how to check-in, and instructions for the apartment to be a minimalist, and requiring follow up (i.e. a lot of it was in German with no translation provided), and it sometimes took awhile to track down the hostess (she relied on phone communication more, which we didn't have access to). But when we did reach her she was very responsive. One example: we accidentally turned off the refrigerator our last day with a wall switch, but had no idea what had happened and assumed it was broken. Not major, but a little thing that would be easy to alert people about.

Owner's Response: Dear Beth, Thank you so much for your positive comment about my apartment! I am indeed very sorry that contacting you was unusually difficult. As you said there was no possibility by way of telephone. But e-mailing, of course, is not so quick. When I became aware that mailing via HomeAway seemed to be especially slow, I offered you access to my private e-Mail. However, it turned out that your message ended up in my spam. This was really most unfortunate. So I could not fulfill my ambition to be available at any time. As to the refrigerator, it has never happened before that someone turned off the main switch. So I think we do not need to worry about that.

A Gem

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for the best location near transportation, and an apartment that is perfect, look no further. Just a 5 minute walk to Roma Termini, the apartment has been completely renovated with modern, tasteful and quality furnishings. From the hardwood floors, quality bedding (and mattress) to the complete yet compact kitchen, you will not be disappointed. It is spotlessly clean. I stayed several weeks in April, and I only hope I may return very soon. Many thanks to Dr. Kern for sharing her delightful and most comfortable apartment.
