My place is good for couples, families and (eventually) solo adventurers
To be faithful to the house and the atmosphere around it, I've been looking for a suitable context and I found it in Patrick Kavanagh's words: the sun rose and set in a land of dreams whether the clocks were right or wrong.
Both the apartment and the neighbourhood, centric but not chaotic, are quiet despite their liveliness.
Apart from being close to the Vatican, a lot of facilities around. Three supermarkets next-door (one is open all daylong), bakeries, cafés, take-away, restaurants and a good deal of shops, cinemas, pubs. "Il mercato trionfale", the city-market, for market lovers.
Getting here from the subway is safe, fast and easy, and only a few stops from the main station. Some hints about transports (public/private ones depending on how many people are traveling, your arrival time and your luggage) will be available after the reservation; you can plan your movements or write me for further information, of course. I might not have all the answers you would ever need but as a city dweller and a traveler myself, my wish is to help you out. Should you require anything at any point of your stay, I'll soon get ready.
Disponible para huéspedes
Lock on bedroom door (optional).
Otros aspectos destacables
The twin bedroom is perfect for a second double bedroom. In order to provide you a proper accomodation, let me know beforehand please (at least one day before your arrival).
A couple looking for two separate beds
As already mentioned, let me know asap (at least one day before your arrival). You'll get a proper accommodation according to your specific needs.
I shan't be home till late → 7-8 pm! On top of that, the apartment is quite ready for guests but the 80 m² do require attention and people working under pressure is not my priority. For lastminute guests the green verified badge on their profile page is not a choice.
Two are just round the corner and one is two blocks away, so if you need a place to place a medium sized car (fee parking is approx. 15€ per day) you have several choices.
Closed 1-6 am, 10.30am-6 pm on sundays. To be confirmed.
A Europcar parking is located near Monte Ciocci.
Ostia Antica (Archaeological site) and Ostia Lido (Sea)
Route: Valle Aurelia-Ostiense&Porta San Paolo-Ostia.
Valle Aurelia* is within walking distance.
It is a 10-15 minutes journey from Valle Aurelia to Ostiense** and a 30-40 minutes journey from Porta San Paolo to Ostia Lido.
*next stop from Cipro (line A) and also an important junction.
**The station is connected to Porta San Paolo
and Piramide (line B)
Noise is a nuisance, therefore no rules except discretion (which is not a rule at all). Please keep the windows closed under the circumstances and please smoke using the ashtray outside. Interiors are for non-smokers.
Check-in can be flexible, as long as agreed in advance (otherwise I'll wait for you between 2-7 pm); Cinderella would confirm how slow moves are after midnight, that's why I won't allow them. Check-out is at 10 am, but you may leave your luggage (till noon, when the apartment is yet to clean up and new guests will soon arrive).
From your check-in on, take care of keys, you're responsible for them.
Sorry, no cradles nor bedsides for babies at the moment (there are plenty of plus points about the apartment, but it doesn't really have an area for changing diapers etc). Don't forget to remark on this subject if they're traveling with you and by the way, kindly check your documents before your arrival, keep them handy (they have to be notified within 24h). All travelers need valid Passports/National IDs to land here: police headquarters don't accept driving licences, post, bank or tax cards as valid travel documents and neither do I.
Restrictions are due to other engagements, different habits and needs. Any improvisation (without consent, in substance) will bring to cancellation, whereas fair notifications won't affect bookings.
No one staying who have not booked in. The apartment is designed, furnished and equipped for a maximum of 4 (including children) per night. Should more than registered guests stay in, I reserve the right to cancel your reservation or to charge extra per night per each guest exceeding the total of number agreed. I also reserve the right to close the room that a couple of guests booking the apartment is not going to use.
Bed sheets and towels are provided. For longer bookings a change of bedding/towels may be provided on request every week.
Usually in Rome the winter heating season is from November 1st till April 15th, thereby keep it in your mind.
Last but not least:
I'm not an appendix to smartphones (and vice versa) but you can count on me answering as soon as possible and all things being equal, always during the day.
I studied French and Portuguese many years ago, but write up your inquiry in your own language, I keep reading/writing a little (I'm not able to speak French nor Portuguese anymore). If communicating it is easier in your native language, feel free to write a review 'in your words' (and don't overrate/undervalue them) after your stay - thanks.
1st seldom or never the lift acts like a grumpy old man, I state it for people who might be panic-stricken and for the healthy who might be carrying heavy luggage
2nd although I won't share the apartment with you, it is full up with a motley myriad of memories and life: comfortable, intimate and well located: may you feel it and live in it accordingly.
Céad míle fáilte. I didn't raise this house, but I do appreciate what it safeguards and I'm glad I won't know which arrangement guests in general would like best: what would be most generally pleasing is not my object here, I hope this apartment will suit you, so you may have your 'dreamland' in Rome even for a weekend break.
So long, for better or for worse I hope that none of us will have the chance of repeating the old refrain "ver comentários dos outros hospedes". Enterprising schemes and cooperation are making it easier for hosts to get a better place for everybody, but I'm no stranger to the pioneering spirit. I love not man the less, but Nature more —such as those before me.
