About the property

2 bedrooms -2 bathrooms - large living room - kitchen - WiFi

On the second floor of a charming building dating back to the year 1900, in the center of Rome, the apartment has 2 large and bright bedrooms (one with 1 king bed and one with 2 twins beds to be joined if needed) overlooking the green and peaceful inner courtyard. The living, with a 3 seater sofa bed (comfortably sleeps 2 adults), TV set and a dining table for 6, is perfect to chill out with your family and friends. And if you'd like to experience home-made Italian cuisine, a fully equipped kitchen is at your disposal (oil, spices, sugar and coffee are always available). There are 2 bathrooms: a full bathroom with bath tub, bidet and double wash-basins (definitely useful, especially with children), plus a smallest service bathroom with sink, wc and washing machine.

Children are welcome: toys, books and other amenities are available for them! :-)

The apartment is decorated with original elements of Italian design by Artemide, Flos, Kartell, first among everything the Arco lamp by Castiglioni. You will find pieces of Italian art of the 70s, of painters such as Sarnari, Vespignani, Uncini (these artists were the highlights of a recent exhibition at the Palazzo delle Esposizioni in Rome).

Very central, Elizabeth House is located in the Rione Esquilino, nearby Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore, in a walking distance from the Colosseum and the Roman Forum (10-15 mins walk). This area is alive, dynamic, full of shops, bakeries, groceries, bar and restaurants and is perfectly served by bus and 2 lines of metro (the closest stop, Vittorio Emanuele, is at a couple of steps from the front door). Right around the corner from the central train station, Termini, it makes day-trips to nearby cities such as Florence and Naples very simple.

Real Italian apartment - excellent manager

  • 5 of 5

Elizabeth House is in a lively, interesting area of Rome - not too touristy. There are many small shops, various restaurants and bakeries and historic churches. Right beside the entrance to the apartments is a trattoria with good food, reasonably priced, and helpful staff, which suited us so well that we went back several times. A few streets away is an amazing covered Food Market. The location is convenient for the Metro and the Termini and to set off on foot to explore historic areas such as the Colosseum.

The apartment is in a traditional Italian building with high ceilings and cool tiled floors, has a well equipped kitchen and is tastefully furnished with interesting art on the walls. The beds were comfortable and nicely made up for our family.

The most impressive aspect was Chiara's helpfulness, particularly in sorting out a payment problem (not of her making). She went beyond duty. Once we had arrived she meet us at the apartment for checkin, which was all done well plus helpful information about the apartment, the locality and generally what we wanted to do in Rome. She also provided a local cell phone for any other questions during our stay. The taxi from the airport was reliably booked with helpful instructions about what to do if the plane was delayed.

Chiara was a great help...was kind, communicated well, and had a notebook full of helpful info at the apartment. The apartment had the amenities that it advertised and was very clean. The beds were comfortable. No A/C, but opening the windows brought in a great breeze. Close access to the Metro and grocery store. Overall, a great stay and we would recommend it.

Hemos estado en el apartamento dos parejas y dos niños. Nos ha resultado comodísimo, ya que las habitaciones son muy amplias y también la cocina-comedor. Es muy luminoso, a pesar de que las habitaciones dan a un patio interior, pero es muy grande y con plantas. Nos ha encantado la decoración, sencilla pero con mucho gusto. Y por supuesto, tiene todo lo necesario para sentirse bien, para cocinar, para descansar... Y la ubicación, pensábamos que estaba un poco alejado y teníamos dudas acerca del barrio, pero nos ha sorprendido porque hemos podido ir a pié a muchos sitios y también hemos usado el metro que está al lado de la casa. En cuanto al barrio, es muy agradable, la calle ancha y arbolada, la plaza con jardín justo al lado, y en general, un barrio muy vivo, en el que hay tiendas de todo tipo.

Y agradezco mucho a Chiara su atención en todo momento.

Roomy apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Really nice size apartment in a great area for seeing Rome. In walking distance to the Colosseum, plus it is right next to a Metro stop. Our hostess, Chiara, could not have been nicer. She took time to locate all the sites that we wanted to see on a city map, plus she explained the best way to get to the destinations. The information book at the house is one of the best I have seen, replete with tourist tips for travel, eating, shopping, and important landmarks. We were in easy walking distance to the Termini Train Station also, so it was very easy to go to other sites in the area and to the Airport. I brought my wife, daughter, and our granddaughter. It was a perfect apartment in a great area. It was perfect for us.

Wonderful and a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here during a recent visit to Rome and would highly recommend it! The apartment is in an ideal location to use as a base to explore the entire city. There was plenty of space and everything was very comfortable and clean. Chiara is an excellent host and was very responsive and helpful. She provided not only a great place to stay, but also a wealth of information about Rome to use as a reference during our stay. We would stay here again!

The apartment is located right in front of St. Mary Major Basilica, it is between the Esquiline and the Rione Monti.

Esquiline is a multi-ethnic and commercial district, where you can find several restaurants (TRATTORIA MONTI, for instance, is at the end of the street of Alice House and is simply amazing: genuine home made cousine! supermarkets, bakeries (PANELLA in via Merulana is very good and famous!), ice cream/gelato, groceries and so on; is also close to Termini Station (useful because of the 2 lines of metro and the several bus lines) and Piazza Vittorio Emanuele II, where you can find every day the large, colourful and famous ESQUILINE MARKET.

Rione Monti (10 mins walk from the apartment!) is one of the most ancient district of the city, located between via Cavour, via Nazionale and the Colosseum. It's the neighbourhood for the cool, the young, the vintage, the eclectic; those who want a serving of cobblestone, antique and artisans, with a side order of beautiful brooding artist. Monti is full of lovely hosteria, wine bar, shops and so on!
