The SpaceWelcome, my name is Lorenza, I'm an architect and I've decided to make a room in the apartment I live in available, for short or long periods. The flat is located in a quiet residential area, on the East side of Rome. The lovely room is for 2 persons but if you are more people I have an extra bed to be placed in the living room (and eventually the sofa).
You will feel at home. It has a large living room with a big terrace, and a hammock to relax in, especially in summer, plus tv, kitchen with microwave, two bedrooms and two bathrooms. You will have a beautiful and big breakfast every morning, and from April ‘til October breakfast will be offered on the terrace.
You will find useful addresses and points of interest in the area, a map of the city and the Metro (Subway) will also be provided. If you decide to be my guests you can also get information about the city of Rome and the Vatican, transport and tours, excursions, guided tours, etc... to visit, in my opinion, the most beautiful city in the world ... Rome a wonderful city, unique and charming, full of history and places to discover.
The room is bright and new. It is designed to accommodate one person or two persons. The bed is "French" (140cm x 190cm). The room has a small closet, bedside table with drawers. The private bathroom is just in front of the room. Depending on the time of year I will dress your bed with pillows and fabrics of different colors.
I hope you do not mind animals I have now 5 cats: Eli, Magellana, Qu Bello and Tigre: A mother cat and her 3 babies, and a new cat foundling who was following my cats: Chantal
