The space

Private single or double room in a family home. We have a large terrace and we are a short walk from Furio Camillo Metro A, very close to downtown and the Appia Antica. Quiet, safe neighborhood at night, full of shops, cinemas, theaters, local markets, bookstores, pubs, pizzerias, restaurants, cafes, public swimming pools. In front we have a park, Villa Lazzaroni, and a five minute walk you get to the largest green area of Rome, the Caffarella. With me and my son Adrian, 18 years old, lives an elderly lupetta, silent and effortless. We speak English, French, we are great travelers, we have friends all over the world, we always offer a good coffee. A free map of Rome with indications on pubblic trasport and guiding books are in the room.
Included in the price are wi-fi, clean linen and towels. For long stays is allowed to use the washing machine, and with a small increase of price also the opportunity to cook one meal a day and / or enjoy a good Italian meal prepared by me and served on the terrace at candle's light.

2 months in Paola's flat were great. Everything were excellent. Clean room and whole flat with beautiful green terrace where you can eat and relaxing. The bus station near by flat and Metro also. Shops and cinema and restaurants. Everything what you need is near by you. Next my coming for sure I would like to stay in the same flat))) Because I'm sure u won't find better variant of price and quality ) grazie mille )))

We loved our stay here. Beautiful home with a gorgeous terrace to sit for breakfast or just to relax. The room was perfect, with our own bathroom, both really clean and equipped for what we needed. The location was perfect, a really safe and friendly neighbourhood with lots of lovely pizzerias and pasta places to eat - a lovely big park just over the road - and also only a two minute walk to the metro to get into the centre. Paola was very helpful and accommodating and we couldn't have asked for a better host. When we are in Rome again we will be back! I would definitely recommend this to a friend.

Paola is a wonderful host with a warm and welcoming personality, I really enjoyed my stay. The room was very clean and organised when I arrived. Although the apartment is not right in the center, it is nonetheless in a great location within walking distance to the metro, fast and easy to use. I would highly recommend Paola's place. Grazie mille !

Paola's place was very charming and had an excellent location. We were really excited to stay at her place because of all the good reviews I had read. However, we had a little trouble finding where her room was located in the building. We were walking around inside the building and she showed up around the corner and the first statement she said to us was what was so wrong with us that we couldn't understand her directions. The first statement was not "hello" or "welcome", but "what is wrong with you that you do not understand". I was not expecting her to be so rude from all the great reviews. She did have water and fruit waiting for us in the room which was very nice. After that first day she was very sweet.

Oh Jayson, I was not rude I was just worried for you! Because I waited on the door and you did not come for a long time, so I thought that you was lost somewhere. I was sorry thinking that my advices did not work....

Very good, well maintained home, in a very authentic Italian neighbourhood including good food just around the corner. Close to Furio Camillo Metro which brings you quickly to the city centre. The closeby Parco Caffarella allows for nice walks & running. During the warmer period of the year, the terrace was lovely for having breakfast/dinner. For a long-term stay as mine was, you might prefer a stay at a place where you are not bound to the life of the owners, but except for some discussions there have not been major problems with the landlady. I definitely recommend Paola's place if you are looking for a nice starting point to discover Rome.

Response from Paola:
Dear Sebastian, You are a kind person but, as you name our discussions, I also say with clarity that I prefer greater respect for house rules and more direct communication. You asked me if your girlfriend could come and see the house and I said yes. Then your girlfriend dined here, slept here and took a shower here many times. It means two guests, not one: so I hosted your girlfriend at my own expense. Your request to house your brother and his fiancée, which I refused, did not respect the rules of the house. Living a family home can be convenient because it makes the experience more authentic and hot in Rome, but (sorry) has limits that must be respected for harmony and peace.

I had a gorgeous 2 months stay at Paola's ! An incredibly lovely personn (with a strong character at the same time ;) ), who will make you feel home. The apartment is really close to the metro station (and there's buses all night long), supermarket, and, important point, pizzerias and ice cream shop ;) Amazing terrace wich quickly became my favourite breakfast spot ! I'm not a dog-frendly personn, but Giove really isn't gonna annoy you. You can feel Paola loves hosting people, she's gonna help you with your italian learning if needed, and introduce you to italian way of life : she will take care of you and make sure you're enjoying your stay. For long stay hosts who would use the kitchen, if you can manage not to cook at the same time as Paola, she'd be grateful : you don't wanna bother her while she cooks ! Her son Adriano is also very friendly and easy-going, as well as the woman helping them at home, Ana, always in a good mood ! I wouldn't hesitate to recomand to stay at Paola's place, you'll surely enjoy it :) Thank you again Paola, Ana and Adriano for these 2 beautiful months, hope to see you again !

Tnakyou darling and beloved! I know that sometimes the people who lives in our same building is noisy but what can I do? Some of them are a family form Cuba. Thankyou beloved friend! We know that sometimes the family living on the second floor is noisy but.... they are from Cuba and they have different standards about being happy and loud music or conversation.... what can we do? I smile with them.
