About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Nestled in the residential Parioli-Salario district, (Gaetano's) Nino's house is located in the heart of Rome, just a few steps away from the tranquility of Villa Borghese, one of the largest landscaped gardens in Rome, and from Via Veneto, probably the most famous, elegant and trendy street in Rome.

On the first floor of a beautiful historic building at via Basento 55, a quiet and elegant street, the apartment overlooks the blooming inner courtyard, and thanks to the double-glazed windows, it is a perfect choice for those seeking a relaxing holiday in The Eternal City, without giving up a central location.

Recently renovated, Nino’s House is divided into 2 levels: on the lower level, a large and bright living area furnished with a comfortable sofa bed (perfect for 1 adult or for 2 children), a dining table for 4 people, and a TV.

A beautiful staircase leads to the large mezzanine level which has a double bed and a spacious wardrobe. A personal computer is available for our guests. Both the living and the sleeping area are enlightened by 2 large windows.

A modern kitchen, fully equipped with oven, microwave, washing machine, etc. and bathroom with shower complete this spotless apartment in Rome.

Nino’s House is tastefully furnished with both tiled and parquetry floor, and it is absolutely perfect for a couple looking for a romantic week-end in Rome or for a small family: it can sleep up to 3/4 people.

Fully equipped with heating and air conditioning, WiFi Internet connection, personal computer, direct dial telephone (calls throughout Italy included in price), hair dryer, iron and ironing board and full size fridge.

The area around the apartment is full of many typical Italian restaurants, a department store, as well as numerous shops.

Our first impression of this apartment was "WOW"!Yes it is cozy with all comforts of home. 5 stars!

  • 5 of 5

The owner, Gino was very gracious & hospitable. Gave us tour of apartment, kitchen appliances, etc. Suggested many land marks to see & places to eat. Walked us to neighborhood grocery store. Gave us information on buses to take to see Coliseum, Vatican or anywhere in Rome. He was very helpful. His English was superb compared to our limited Italian. I highly recommend this beautiful apartment, whether 5 days or longer, no regrets. This neighborhood was beautiful! Gloria & Ben

As good as it gets!

  • 5 of 5

If you're lucky enough to have found Nino's house here on VRBO ... don't even read the rest of my review - just book it NOW! The location is perfect in a super safe and well-off neighborhood, but it only takes about 15 minutes on the bus to hit all of the tourist sites. The building is on a small side-street meaning no noise or traffic and therefor a very quiet and restful night's sleep. The photos in the listing are very accurate with no surprises at all. There is a well-stocked kitchen and a nice size bathroom for European standards. The bed was comfortable and the sheets and blanket were all very nice and crisp and clean. Wi-Fi and heat/hot water were also perfect. Best of all is Gaetano (Nino) - a warm, welcoming, informative guy who lives right next door and is eager and more than happy to help with any questions or advice you might need. This is the epitome of the good VRBO/AirBnB experience and I consider myself lucky to have found and stayed here for an entire week!

Nino was a very gracious host full of passion and love for his birth place.

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at Nino's place. He provided us with all the information we needed to get around Rome and be on time for our tours. It was the perfect place to come back to after a long day of sightseeing. Not too far away from all the sites via the bus or the tram. We were even able to walk to the Colosseum from there. Thanks Nino for all your help.
