Your perfect location. Stay in a clean, homely, sunny and comfortable room, in a stylish house, facing pedestrian, quite and green yards.

Enjoy the very centre of downtown in a lively, safe and nice area, very "roman", 10 minn from St Peter's Basilica.
Restaurants, pubs, cinema, library, market, shopping: everything is here! Metro (Cipro and Ottaviano stations, line A) or buses are at a step and will take you everywhere!

In my home you'll find a friendly athmosphere and get a family hand in all your needs, like tickets reservations, cultural advices, suggestions for events, maps, guides, and free car lifts when possible.

We speak English and like to practice French and Spanish.
You can keep all your privacy, we are helpful but very discreet.

Our guests use a bathroom w/shower at their exclusive use.

Enjoy a "customized" Italian breakfast. If you like you can join us for a simply home-style dinner, at a small extra cost. Gluten-free and lactose-free meals also available.

Free wi-fi, free local calls (Italian mobiles too), pc available.

We welcome single women travellers, female friends and students, single mothers and families.

Additional Info

If you have a cat at home, please choose another accomodation: our son is very allergic, even to cat-hair left on your clothes....Sorry about that!

    I felt so welcomed staying with Elisabetta and her son Saverio. The location is wonderful in Prati, and Betta went above and beyond making sure I had suggestions, felt included, and had everything I needed. Felt like home!

    Thank you Inness, it was the same for us, just having a new member in the family. We wish you all the best and hope you count on us for any need while you are still in Italy and keep in touch!

    I had a great time at Elisabetta's beautiful home. It is in a great and safe location (I was very comfortable as a female solo traveller). Elisabetta and her family were so welcoming and comforting toward me, giving me advice of things to do and treating me as a family member. I would definitely recommend her homestay and would sign up again myself if I visit Rome again!

    I had an amazing time in Rome. The location was very convenient and I got a lot of help from Elisabetta regards tourist attractions and best places to see and also with transport.
    I was really lucky to stay here I felt like I was staying at a friends house or with relatives this definitely made my holiday great.
    Also the breakfast was great :)

How do I book?

Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

When do I pay?

Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 250 $£€ for longer term bookings) using a choice of payment methods: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal (not available in certain countries). You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.

When can I share my contact details?

Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
