Newly refurbished with libraries, kitchen utensils, internet connection and faux fireplace this charming accommodation lets people have their own little nest in Rome for some days. It is a romantic place just 8 mins from the hearth of the city (this can vary depending on the traffic). You will have the whole apartament at your disposal. You can decide to explore by bus, underground or by other public transports (really close). On Summer you can ask the owner for a ride to the sea. The guests will be presented with plenty of tips to really ‘live’ the city, away from the usual mass tourism paths. At the same time you will be just behind the corner for the most famous and stunning monuments and Churches, typical areas and places of interest. You can ask the owner for a lift from/to the airport. Great selection of english literature books. Official BookCrossing Zone. Check-in and check-out times can be arranged.

Perfect spot in Rome!

5 on January 22, 2012

My girlfriend and I stayed in the Romantic Nest for our anniversary and it was the perfect base with a quick bus ride down to the city. The apartment was perfectly suited and the host was very attentive, providing us with lifts to and from the airport. Highly recommended

Great Apartment in a nice Community!

4.6 on August 04, 2011

My wife and I stayed two nights at Luca's apartment June 19th and 20th. Luca was right on time picking us up at the train station and also provided a ride to the airport on our departure. All for 50 euros! The apartment was perfect and very quaint. Luca was very friendly and helpful sharing where to catch the bus to the Vatican. We had a bit of a hard time finding the right bust to get us back. Perhaps mapping out busses to take from Vatican to Colleseum and back to Apt would be helpful. The markets and coffee shops around the corner were very nice. The local restaurant Cervinia around the corner was fantastic as well. Food was wonderful and very reasonably priced. Would definitely stay at the Nest again! Thanks Luca, it was a pleasure meeting you. Sincerely, Mark and Diana

Pleasant stay in Rome

3.6 on April 25, 2011

We stayed at Luca's apartment for 4 nights and really liked the place. Luca picked us up at the airport and took us directly to the apartment for only 25 Euro. He was really keen to provide us the best service. Luca is a really nice guy and helps you to get a first orientation in Rome. To get to the city center it lasts about 30 minutes – depending on the traffic. The apartment is nicely furnished and has its own kitchen where you can cook meals. At the beginning of our stay Luca provided us several things for breakfast eg. cheese, ham, jam and rolls. The only thing we have to criticize were a few dust bunnies underneath the bed and on the floor. Furthermore an additional bedcover would have been great.

Great apartment with awesome innkeeper

4.2 on April 14, 2011

Great apartment situated in a residential area. A little bit outside of the city, but with bakery and supermarkets next door. Rooms are clean and modernly furnished. There is also available a small kitchen which means a big advantage as food etc is very expensive in Rome. However, the kitchen is equipped sparsely…for example there is only one single pot! Besides, the apartment is really awesome and if you want to, you can also go on the roof terrace and take a sunbath. Another reason for choosing the Romantic Nest is the innkeeper Luca who is amazingly friendly and helpful. He also provides a shuttle service to/from the airports for only 25 € and will give you a lot of suggestions for getting to know to Rome.

Nice place!

3.6 on March 17, 2011

Apartment is nice and clean and refurbished. Power trips out if you use the front room heater so beware. Realistically it does take 30 mins easily to make it into town. The 8-10 minutes estimate is not accurate. The internet provided is mobile web, so it was slow and it took ages to get it working. Luca said he is getting wi-fi so that should sort that quite inconvenient part of the experience. One big negative. There is a kitchen provided but there is literally only ONE pot to cook anything in. That was a very unpleasant surprise after we had purchased food to cook. There really should be more as when you get an apartment you may not expect all utensils but you certainly expect more that just one pot to cook with! This place is perfect if you don't like being in the middle of Rome and want that quiet escape at the end of the day. Luca is great. He is very accommodating and took our feedback very well. Picked us up at the airport for a very reasonable rate of 25€ for two people. It is a bargain for the space if you like being out of the madness of Central Rome.

Innkeeper Response

I really thank you for giving me these precious suggestions and permitting me to make the place more comfortable and welcoming. I really hope you will come back in Rome at the newly "improved" Romantic Nest. Best regards Luca
