Merci à Paolo,pour son accueil et pour toutes les informations concernant Rome
Great location a block from the train station, although this also means the noise from the station is a factor, but this did not disturb me at all. The apartment is on the third floor, so requires going up multiple stairs in an older building. The Vatican is within walking distance (about ten minutes) and the city center of Rome is about 20-25 minutes walking. The family was very kind and conversational without being overbearing with more than adequate command of English for any communication needs. The bathroom is the door directly next to the bedroom making it quite private. The bathroom is small with a very small bathtub that some may not find comfortable since the bottom of the tub appears to be designed for sitting rather than standing. The hosts kindly provided a gluten free breakfast option for me when I let them know that I do not eat gluten. Also, the hosts had good knowledge of the city in order to provide recommendations and directions when needed. I enjoyed meeting this family.
Hôte au top, il n'y avais que Paolo mais il a étais au petit soin avec nous. Il étais très convivial et entre toute les langues nous avons réussi à parler et à faire des conversations ( anglais, espagnol, français, italien). Il nous a conseillé des adresses, des lieux et les itinéraires pour y aller. Ils nous à même cuisiné la recette d'origine des pâtes carbonnara à ma sœur et moi.
La gare et les bus sont à 2 min à pied. Le logement est très bien situé (à 5 min à pied de la Basilique saint-pierre) mise à part le Colisée nous avons visiter tout Rome à pied. Comme convenue, petit déjeuner présent, wifi gratuite, salle de bain et toilette personnelle. Avec possibilité de cuisiner et d'avoir une petite place dans le frigo ! Je le conseille à tout le monde surtout rapport qualité/prix à Rome.
On vous remercie encore et peut-être à une prochaine fois :)
La chambre était très bien. Lit super confortable. Immeuble et rue très tranquilles. Je me sentais en sécurité. Peut faire plein de choses à pied. Trains et autobus à 3 minutes. Pas eu l'occasion de voir Antonella mais Paolo gardait le fort.
Staying at Antonella's was very cool. The apartment is well located, super close to the Vatican. If you want to visit the city by walk it may take you a little more time to get to some attractions (but I did almost everything by walk and it was fine). If you prefer to take public transports, there is still a bus stop really close to their place so you can go pretty much everywhere super easily with the 64. The room is perfect, I got everything that I needed there. While I was in Rome, I didn't have the chance to meet Antonella and her son but her husband Paolo was there and it was very nice with him. He is very kind and helped me a lot by giving me advices to visit the city. Paolo even cooked me pasta and it was so good. I would stay again at this place if I would go back to Rome. Thanks again for hosting me!
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
Merci beaucoup pour votre accueil, nous avons été extrêmement contents de notre séjour à Rome.
Nous reviendrons chez vous la prochaine fois.

Antonella, seu marido Paolo e o pequeno Andrea são pessoas formidáveis, muito cordiais. O quarto fica num prédio antigo e não há elevador. Acesso de trem a apenas 200 metros. Pode-se ir ao Vaticano a pé. Vale pelo bom preço.
owners hospitable and ready to help, provided all things, necessary for accommodation, rendered consultations...
good placement, it is possible to reach the center of Rome or the area Trastevere on foot.
- a small inconvenient bathroom (when you stands - you is afraid to fall)... I on the place of owners would put a shower booth.
- a bed not really big (for one it is very good, for two it was close).
- hardish nedobny pillows (but not to take the orthopedic pillows in a trip) ;)
but in general - excellent option for small money!
hi to Antonella and Paulo!
For an economy accommodation I don't think I could have done better than choose Antonella's Homestay. My travel schedule meant that I arrived at the apartment quite late but this was not a problem for my hosts who welcomed me warmly into their home, offered me a drink, explained what was necessary about the accommodation and gave me some very useful information about the neighbourhood and Rome in general in the process.
The room is spacious with a very high ceiling and met all my requirements. It is situated at the rear of the building, overlooking a courtyard and the rear of apartments on the other side, so is very quiet - but it is a quiet neighbourhood anyway. There are good shutters on the window eliminating any light disturbance. I found the bed firm and very comfortable. The bathroom is immediately next door, almost as good as en-suite, so there is a sense of real privacy which my hosts showed great respect for. The bathroom is compact but I found it perfectly adequate. I could take a continental breakfast, making fresh coffee myself, in the family kitchen in my own good time. I could come and go at my own convenience. Getting back quite late on a couple of occasions during my 5 night stay was no problem, though, of course, I took care to be careful and as quiet as possible.
I found the location very good. It is far enough away from the main roads for it to be quiet but not too far away to walk down to them in a few minutes, as the main roads are, by and large, where most of the local restaurants, shops and services are. However, there is a very nice greengrocer and general store, a pasticceria, a bar and a church just a few yards down the road from the main entrance to the block. Just round the corner is the terminus for the 64 bus, which has many stops through much of central Rome between there and the main Termini station, and the Piazzale di San Pietro train station from where it's possible to catch trains that link with Rome's Metro network or indeed to many places beyond Rome itself. It's also easy to walk into central Rome from the accommodation, or to walk the Aurelian walls along the Janiculum hill into neighbouring Trastevere. I found it a very safe area, even late at night. An impressive view of the dome of St Peter's Basilica graces the street, which tells you how close to the Vatican the accommodation is.
I really enjoyed my short time in Rome and I think staying at Antonella's Homestay had a lot to do with it, especially in the sense that it made me feel, just as probably all independent travellers like to feel, that I wasn't so much a tourist as a resident, regardless of how short a time it was for.
