Area: San Lorenzo
A perfect apartment for travelers who are interested in staying in a very historical quarter of Rome… one that goes back many centuries. In the historic San Lorenzo District travelers can walk down old streets that have been witness to centuries of Roman social and political history. It remains a very popular area of Rome that still has a large population of old Roman families although in recent years the area has been undergoing gentrification and is becoming a very trendy area in which to live. It is a very lively area situated between the Stazione Termini (the main railroad station in Rome as well as a main bus and Subway terminal) and the main University Sapienza in Rome.
As it is within easy walking distance to the Central Railroad Station the area is well connected by public transportation to all sections of the city. San Lorenzo attracts many students, young couples and faculty staff to live in the area which creates a lively neighborhood with pubs being added next to the old style trattorias and interesting artisans’ shops. All this activity makes it an excellent area in which to get a feeling of everyday life in Rome.
The apartment is partially air conditioned and has an Internet WiFi connection. On the first floor of an elevator building, it is comfortable and tastefully and elegantly decorated including some pieces of Italian craftsmanship. From the small apartment entrance, adjacent to which is the bathroom with its large shower and hairdryer, there is direct access to the spacious air conditioned living room furnished with two sofas, a flat screen satellite television, and a table on which the hosts keep a supply of useful brochure information. This area gets some light from a small, high window with the rest of its light coming from the adjacent kitchen which has its own windows plus the terrace door. A hallway leads to two bedrooms, both with two double queen size beds which can be separated, a wardrobe, a chair, a desk and bedside tables.
- bedroom number 1 is air conditioned;
- bedroom number 2 is not air conditioned but does have a ceiling fan.
Both rooms have double glazed windows.
The kitchen is adjacent to the living room and is fully equipped with a stove, kettle, refrigerator, dishwasher, washing machine, iron, ironing board and dishes and utensils. The host also provides some food staples such as coffee, sugar and milk. An attractive feature of this unit is the 25 sqm (240 sq ft) terrace which has a table, an umbrella and chairs and is decorated with plants and flowers including some pots of herbs. A pleasant spot for dining al fresco or simply relaxing after a day of sightseeing.
The hosts are passionate connoisseurs of Rome and will provide tips about the city and the district. They also have a special agreement with a taxi company providing a discount to and from the Rome airports.
No pets are allowed but smoking is permitted on the terrace.
This apartment is located on the same floor as our apartments APT029 and APT045making it possible for a group or a large family traveling together(up to12 people), to be accommodated in the same location.
The district of San Lorenzo maintains a particular charm of the Rome of the 1960’s. Its streets are a mixture of older shops, bars and clubs that are mingling with trendy bistros and restaurants. The area is home to many craftsmen and artisans; alternative shops (health food stores, oriental objects) and boutiques of interest to young people. Restaurants and inexpensive pizzerias are abundant. Among the most fashionable is the Pastificio Cerere (Pasta Factory), a old factory that has been converted into an artists’ space that includes a good restaurant directly in front of the house; Said, an old chocolate lab that has expanded its activities in the area; Tram-Tram, a restaurant that offers typical Roman traditional food; Fuzzy Bar for a glass of good wine and delicious food dishes; and the Franco al Vicoletto restaurant specializing in seafood at reasonable prices.
Extra charge of €50 for check-in after 9pm.
