About the property

In the heart of Rome, bedroom, living-room, bath, kitchen, sleeps up to 5

Very nice, recently renewed, furnished apartment (bedroom and living-room) on the third floor of a historical Roman Palazzo of the 19th century located at the Via Merulana (quarter Esquilino-Monti). Sleeps up to 5 adults, about 60 sqm. Bath and kitchen are fully equipped and have both a window. There is plenty of space, many closets. The living-room has a sleeping-sofa, a table with chairs and some bookshelves. Nice dark wooden floor, high ceiling. Air conditioning. Very quiet because all windows are on the courtyard side and not on the street. The apartment would suit for a longer stay (for tourism, study or business). Young couples with children and/or pets are welcome (no elevator, therefore not suitable for wheelchairs or walking impaired).

About Francesca Bonomini

I am from Rome, I was born in Rome and I grew up in this city. And I am still in love with Rome. Together with my brother we bought this appartment which happened to be exactly in the same quarter Esquilino-Monti (and even in the same street!) where we lived a few years together with our parents and great-parents as we were both children. This means that our most beautiful and sweetest memories of our childhood are linked with this street, the Via Merulana. Besides in this place you feel surronded by so much history and so much beauty, like almost nowhere else in this city. You almost forget the chaos, the noise, the dirt and the havoc in the Via Merulana, because here you can experience the feeling of being in the heart of this city with its uncountable calm isles of tranquillity, like for instance the Park of Colle Oppio or the Park of the Villa Celimontana (both within a walking distance from the appartment). We rent the place only for a limited time because we like to spend there ourselves a couple of days from time to time or invite our friends and relatives to stay over and enjoy a short break in the shadows of the Colisseum .

Francesca Bonomini purchased this apartment in 2010

What makes this apartment unique

There are quite a few advantages in choosing to rent this appartment: it is quiet and at the same time next to the most important monuments of the city of Rome. As a tourist you can do and see really a lot simply walking from the apartment or taking the public transportation. Moreover this zone of Rome is relatively quiet and safe also in the evening. You have plenty of shopping possibilities, restaurants, bars, Gelati and Theater which you can reach on foot. Our congierce is also ready to help and can give you a few insider hints (if you understand Italian) on how and where to do. And last but not least, you can sleep in the appartment 'like a king'!

Amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

We (2 adults and 3 kids) had a great stay at Francesca's apartment. She is a wonderful host and was very welcoming and accommodating. The apartment provided us with everything we could possibly wish for - the kitchen is fully equipped, the beds are comfortable, the Internet is reliable and everything was working just the way it is supposed to. The best part - the location of the apartment is within 5 min walk from the Colosseum, so you will be able to explore all the central cites and attractions by foot. For those traveling with kids - the park nearby (the one on the way to the Colosseum) has a decent playground. For those interested in attending a catholic mass in English - St. Clement Basilica (7 min walk) offers one every Sunday at 10.00 AM.

Thank you Francesca and all the best to you and your family!

Great apartment near the Colosseum

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our 5 night stay at this apartment. It is located close by the colosseum, and is still within walking distance to most of Rome's main sights and attractions. We walked to the Borghese Gallery, Pantheon, Vatican, and train station to name a few. The apartment had all the amenities we needed for our stay, including the most important; WIFI, washer, and air-conditioning! The apartment was very clean and well taken care of. We would recommend this apartment to others and would stay there again if we ever return to Rome!

Zentrale Ferienwohnung mitten in Rom!

  • 5 of 5

Die Ferienwohnung ist sehr zentral, so dass man einen Großteil der Stadt zu Fuß entdecken kann. Alternativ bietet sich die Metro an - die nächste Station befindet sich nur wenige Gehminuten von der Wohnung entfernt! Auch der nächste Supermarkt ist nur etwa 100 m entfernt.

Die Wohnung ist sehr gut ausgestattet und entspricht den Bildern zu 100%. Die Betreuung vorab und vor Ort war sehr zuvorkommend und nett, so dass wir die Wohnung jederzeit gerne wieder mieten würden!

Toller Rom-Urlaub

  • 5 of 5

Bei der Organisation inkl. Anreise gab es umfangreiche Hilfe durch Francesca via Mail. Vor Ort hat uns dann Carlo sehr freundlich empfangen.

Die Wohnung ist super - sehr sauber, gute Raumaufteilung und eine tolle Lage (knapp 1km zum Koloseum und 100m zum nächsten Supermarkt).

Der Preis ist für die Ausstattung, den Service und die Lage angemessen.

Die beiden gingen auf jede Frage zufriedenstellend ein und waren jederzeit via Mobiltelefon erreichbar.

Die Klimaanlage hat leider nicht immer wie gewünscht funktioniert (Anleitung nur auf italienisch vorhanden), aber in der Wohnung befindet sich ein Ventilator und nachts ist es draußen ziemlich kühl.

Fazit: Gerne wieder - ein super Urlaub den wir in toller Erinnerung behalten werden.

Owner's Response: Vielen Dank, Stefan! Schön, dass Ihr Euren Urlaub genießen konnten. Und danke auch für den Hinweis auf die Bedienungsanleitung für die Klimaanlage: ja, wir müssen sie unbedingt übersetzen! Es würde mich freuen, Euch wieder in Rom begrüßen zu dürfen. Herzliche Grüße Francesca
