Rome, Rome & Lazio, Italy
Additional Location Information
Monti is the name of one of the most ancient area of Rome. The name literally means mountains in Italian and comes from the fact that the Esquiline and the Viminal Hills, and parts of the Quirinal and the Caelian Hills belonged to this rione.The district is very large and very urbanistically composite, ranging from areas of intensive urbanization (such as that between the Interior and the Quirinal, with an axis of Via Nazionale, and all the buildings in Via Cavour) and the most recent areas as those between the Esquiline and Celio, on Via Amba Aradam).
Particularly appreciated from this point of view, and increasingly popular in recent years, is the area between Via Nazionale and Via Cavour (Via del Boschetto, Via dei Serpenti, Via Baccina and Via Panisperna ),the modesty of dwelling houses , the narrow streets, artisan shops, small shops seem to retain the characteristics of nineteenth-century Rome. The area, packed with restaurants, bars and many restaurants, gravitates on the square of the Madonna dei Monti, near of the church, which is still a gathering place for local residents and occasional visitors.
Thanks to its position, Monti is full of archaeological sites such as the Colisseum, the Trajan Forum, Nero's Domus Aurea, partof the Roman Forum and markets of Trajan.
Also, it's located very close to the Metro station Cavour (the one that precedes Termini Station (the main Metro and train station).

What Past Guests Are Saying
Trendy apartment in great location
We enjoyed our five night stay in this small but comfortable apartment in Via de Ciancaleoni, a quiet, cobblestoned street with no through traffic, making it quite unique in this part of Rome. The apartment's location is a big plus, close to the Metro, to the Colosseum and the Forum, but also very close to great bars, restaurants and boutique shopping in the little streets around the apartment. There is even an artisanal gelateria (Gelateria Fatamorgana) located a few minutes walk from the apartment in Piazza degli Zingari. Gelati this good is getting harder to find in Rome.
Our booking was handled with great efficiency and we appreciated having airport transport booked for us too. We made good use of the private rooftop terrace for relaxed breakfasts among the potted gardens and stucco walled buildings around us.
I have stayed at all three Ciancaleoni apartments and they are a
This is smallest of the apartments in this building. Small but great especially for the warm evenings when you can enjoy the rooftop patio which is private to the flat. Nice small kitchen for coffee in the am and quick meals. This is my favorite location in Rome. It is close to everything and quiet because no cars can pass on this street. The owner of the apartment has put a lot of energy into the details and comfort of these apartments. I have always had an excellent experience with the managment company so no issues with deposits, etc. Enjoy this flat. I certainly did.
I stayed here with by partner in February 2013. We arranged with only a few days notice. Marida was extremely accomodating, despite the short notice.
Everything in the house worked perfectly: wifi, air con (not that we needed it in February!), hot water etc. The apartment was very clean, comfortable and quite.
The apartment is very central, only a 2 minute walk to Cavour Metro (one stop to Termini) and 5 minutes walk to the Colosseum and the Forum.
We didn't make use of the terrace, as it was cold, but this would be lovely during warmer weather.
All in all, couldn't fault it.
Perfectly located, nice and quiet, everything was functional and practical. The weather didn't permit the use of the terrace, but it would have been wonderful to use it, as it's beautiful, and a peaceful rest after a busy day of shopping in Rome.
Great restaurants and facilities nearby, a 10 minute walk to the train station/metro (termini) where you can choose what direction you are going to. Walking distance to the Coliseum and other point of interest.
Good service from Nostromondo Staff
I would like to acknowledge the great service that I received from Marida, who works for Nostromondo in the booking arrangement for the Ciancaleoni Flat. I booked the flat for 3 days in early June 2013. A couple of weeks after paying for the deposit, two friends decided to join us for the trip and the Ciancaleoni Flat is not big enough for four people. Marida was most helpful to us in looking for a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment from the Nostromondo properties, as well as from her contacts and colleagues. Despite her great effort, we found another apartment on our own. Marida remained polite, helpful and professional throughout. When she was informed of our decision to cancel the booking, Marida was very understanding, and started the process to provide us a full refund right away. We have just received the refund, and I want to take the opportunity to thank Marika for her tremendous assistance and very good service to clients.

January trip to Rome - just wonderful!
Our trip to Rome was a short one this time - only 4 days. The apartment was very cute. It's small but adequate for a couple. The location is perfect - 5 minutes to metro with a good stair fitness possibility:), there are a lot of small restaurants around. The apartment was very warm and clean - with terrace as a bonus. Wi-fi worked perfectly. There are lot of brouchers about Rome in the flat - so you can also use them discovering Rome and make day trips.
Marida and Eleonora - thank you for all your support! We wish you a good year full of harmony and success.
Hope to enjoy our splendid Rome next time with a glass of wine on terrace!
Dmitry and Lana
All you need for your vacations in Rome!
Our New year holiday in Italy and first time in Rome wouldn't be so great, if we stayed in another place. The location is very convenient, just one stop by metro from Termini station and in walking distance to all the famous sights. The flat itself is very modern, clean and warm, which was very important for us. The terrace is a pleasant bonus for those who stay here in summer months. The managers of the apartment try to do their best to make your stay in the apartment a pleasant experience. We had some problems with wifi connection, but inspite of the holiday time, it was resolved quickly and efficiently. Marida and Eleonora, thank you very much and happy New Year!
Alena & Sergey
The perfect apartment in the perfect neighborhood.
The whole experience of this trip wouldn't have been the same without this wonderful apartment. My mom and I stayed here for 11 nights in late October/early November and loved every minute of our stay. Rome is amazing and the Monti district where the apartment is located is so cool!
Simply, I would recommend this clean, well-equipped and comfortable apartment to anyone. And, the terrace is a wonderful bonus.
Jan & Shay
We loved our little flat in Monti!
My daughter and I stayed here Oct 26 - November 6, 2012 and it was perfect. It's private, quiet, affordable and we loved the Monti district of the city. The nearby restaurants, grocery stores, historical/culture attractions, and shopping right outside our door were all fabulous. Except for three day trips out of the city, we walked and explored this amazing city everyday. We're thankful we had plenty of time in Rome to start to appreciate all there is to experience.
Marida was a great host! She arranged an airport pick-up and return, which was a great convenience. She also solved a water problem at the apartment in record time.
Break in rome
complies with all the announcement. Unfortunately impossible to run internet despite our requests. damage to the organization of visits.
Ciancaleoni Flat - Colosseum
Location was amazing and with in walking distance to a lot of the attactions. Metro was super close and was also handy to get all over Rome. Apartment was very clean and a perfect place to stay. Marida was a great host and very friendly! Would definetly stay there again if we go back to Rome.
clean & comfortable
We stayed for 3 nights at the flat. It's small but adequate for a couple, and very clean. The bed is comfortable. The location is convenient - less than 10 minutes walk to the Coloseum, a few steps away from Metro station. If there's anything I could suggest, maybe add a small rack to the shower stall for putting shampoo and shower gel bottles.
Comfortable and quiet apartment in the centre of the city
First of all we had very warm welcome and wonderful introduction from Marida. She supplied us with city map and explained what to see and do in Rome and where to find best shops and restaurants. All her recommendations were excellent. Marida booked for us Borghese Gallery and bought tickets for Vatican museum. It was great!
An apartment is located in a very quiet and safe street just two minutes walk from Metro station and walking distance to all main attraction. We walked everywhere and always could come back to our apartment for a little bit rest. Grocery shop is just two minutes away and plenty of good restaurants around.
The apartment is very clean and modern, has good equipped kitchen, Wi-Fi, safe and even its own terrace where we could have cup of coffe in the morning and glass of wonderful Italian wine at night. We traveled for four weeks around Italy but this apartment in Rome was our best accommodation!
We really enjoyed our time in Rome.
Jacky & Tony
Pefect accommodation in a perfect location.
We were recommended this flat by friends for a short stay. The location is ideal as it close to Termini and Cavour stations. The area is well spaced with a main shopping street within 10 minutes walking distance and is full of restaurants with wide choices of cuisine.
Booking was very easy and the Nostromondo staff were very accommodating with our various requsts and enquiries. The real bonus is the terrace which we were able to make use of every day.
P & G
Modern flat in historical stone building on quaint cobblestone a
Three comfortable nights in Rome's historical Monti area at the Ciancaleoni Flat. Would definitely stay again. Felt like we were really experiencing a Roman neighborhood rather than a standard hotel. Booking and contact was handled very efficiently by Marida. Would recommend a cell phone for contact once in Rome as there is no onsite contact. We used email which worked okay. Would also recommend the little restaurant at the bottom of the steps around the corner...wonderful pizza and pasta. We ate there every night! Amenities and location excellent.
Wonderful light studio apartment in central but quiet area.
Wonderful apartment and service. Small cobblestone street with restaurants and cafe close by. Great retreat for end of busy site seeing day.
The bed was too firm for mypersonal liking but everything else in apartment was great. Shall definitely recommend this to our friends.

Dear Michelle, thank you for your review.
Hope to host you again for your next trip in the Eternal City in another of our apartments.
Great place to stay in Rome
This is a great place to stay in Rome - perfect for a couple to spend one or more weeks. We would happily return to this well-situated, well-appointed apartment. Even if this apartment is not available, we certainly plan to use Nostromondo (the agency representing this apartment) for our next visit to Rome. First the highlight, not only of our time in Rome, but of our entire month in Europe - on the second night, the Nostromundo staff prepared dinner for us, made in another apartment in the building and served on our roof garden terrace. The chef, Loic, prepared appetizer, pasta, main and dessert courses for us, accompanied by wine - each dish was exceptional and Kim discussed the details with Loic, with plans to recreate them at home. This was an experience we have not had anywhere else, one that made our visit unique and memorable. But even without the dinner, we give this apartment five stars, two thumbs up, our best rating - this was an absolutely delightful experience in every way, exceeding our expectations.
We took the recommended airport cab service and are glad we did.
The experience is so much nicer than a hotel - we really felt as if we had a home in Rome. The apartment is a reasonable size for a studio, looks nicely decorated (as in the pictures) feels modern, and is very clean in all areas. Wifi is available, if occasionally erratic.
For our one week stay, a change of towels was provided, and they were the best towels we encountered during our vacation - large and fluffy.
The bed is comfortable, and we slept well every night.
The private terrace really sets this property apart from others. We were able to enjoy the terrace every day, thanks to the warm and sunny weather during our holiday. We ate breakfast, read guidebooks and enjoyed campari sodas outside - a real luxury that made our stay even more special and pleasant. Inside and out, we felt at ease and at home, enabling us to experience Rome more like residents than tourists.

Dear Maarten and Kim, thank you for your wonderful comments!
You have been very courteous Guests, I felt as you were our friends....
Hope to host you again!
All the best, Marida
Marty and Judy
We recently spent a few days in this lovely flat while you were visiting Rome. The website photos reflect what it looks like very accurately. The flat was well-appointed and the bed was very comfortable. We particularly enjoyed the outdoor terrace in the evening. The location was exceptional and we were able to walk to most venues or if needed, take the subway which is just down the street. A grocery store is also very close. Marida was extremely helpful prior to our arrival, arranging for airport transportation, Roma passes and very timely in responding to any of our requests. Stephano was very welcoming upon arrival and provided us with many "tips" on visiting Italy and his suggested restaurants were fantastic - the one down the hill was the best of all! We would highly recommend this property and would not hesitate to return.
Response from NOSTROMONDO STAFF - 07/12/2012
Dear Judy, thank you very much for your kindness! You and your husband have been very kind and sweet Guests.
I am really happy to hear you enjoyed the apartment, as we always wish for our Guests!
NOSTROMONDO and Rome wait for you again....
Faith and Melissa
Location, class, and comfort!
This is a really great apartment - the private terrace is just what we wanted after a long day of roaming around Rome. It's really close to walk to many places and we found lots of great places to eat and chill close by. The decor and appliances are all pretty new and the kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. I will likely never stay in a hotel in Europe again. I was a little nervous about finding the place and arranging to meet, etc. but my contacts were responsive, prompt, and very friendly. Everything went so smoothly and we were very happy.
Response from NOSTROMONDO STAFF - 07/07/2012
Dear Faith, thank you very much for your review! The satisfaction of our Clients is very important to us and we are really pleased to hear such nice comments about the apartment, its functionalities and the Staff. We hope to host you again...Warmest regards,
An amazing stay!
My sister and I stayed in the flat for 9 nights and it was perfect for us. It had all the amenities we needed and more! Marida is a sweetheart and she was very helpful. The neighbourhood is lovely. I would definitely recommend it to a friend.
Response from NOSTROMONDO STAFF - 07/02/2012
Dear Marie, thank you very much for your kind words! You and your sister are a delight and I hope to host you again in your future trip to Rome!!!
We had a really wonderful stay. The private terrace where we we would have breakfast and our evening prosecco surrounded by the fragrant jasmine made this one of the best city experience ever. The apartment was lovely and had everything we would want, it had a lovely contempary feel. The staff were wonderful and really cared that we had a great stay in Rome, they even arranged accommodation for us when we required an additional evenings stay. the location of the apartment is terrific and the little ristorante at the bottom of the steps is great. Oh please can I return soon?
Response from NOSTROMONDO STAFF - 06/28/2012
Dear Guest, thank you very much for the appreciation you showed! Rome and NOSTROMONDO are looking forward to hosting you again!
Great location and loved the deck
Overall a great little place to call home for a few days or a week. It is a bit smaller than you would think by looking at the pictures, so I was initially a bit disappointed. (We have rented in Europe for the past three years so I had some expectations based on past experiences.)
That said, I grew to love it. The location was fabulous...historic sites and great restaurants are nearby as is the Metro...and the apartment had everything we needed. We spent a lot of evenings on the deck with wine and cheese from a local store.
The rental process was easy and the communication good. We took advantage of their offer to set up transportation from the airport and were very happy that we did.
Response from NOSTROMONDO STAFF - 06/28/2012
I am really happy that you found the location terrific and the apartment very comfortable. NOSTROMONDO hopes to host you again in your future trips!
Marida - NOSTROMONDO STAFF
Amazing flat, great location, the staff were wonderful and very helpful. We were so happy with this flat it made our vacation that much better. The private patio was such a nice touch. I have already recommended this flat to my friends back home.
Marida was so great at answering my emails before we left, transaction and booking was smooth and fast.
I would highly recommend this flat. The location was great, centrally located to everything, there are some great restaurants just around the corner, and there is a grocery store maybe 5 minute walk.
Enough for what I was looking for.
Great location as it is close to the Colosseum.
There's a supermarket like 5-7 blocks away where you can buy what you need to cook.
We were received by the owners' son and everybody was friendly.
The day of the arrival, the key to the deck got broken but the fixed it the next day.
It has a very well equipped kitchen. I think they need a juicer.
They have an elevator which was perfect because I have bad knees.
The deck was very nice as we had breakfast there several days.
Not so positive things but I could live with them:
Very small closet space.
No place to put the mop (as we did our own cleaning while we were there) but inside the tiny closet with the clothes
No cleaning supplies
Things to improve:
A bigger fridge. This one is very small.
Better cleaning. i am very picky about cleaning and the kitchen walls were dirty and the floor was dirty as well. I walked with no shoes for a few minutes and my feet got very dirty.
A better storage for the toiletries.
I would definitely stay here again with no hesitation but I would ask for a perfectly clean place before getting there.
Comfortable flat in very nice area
We usually stay near historical centre of Rome, but were attending a course near San Giovanni in Laterano and wanted to stay between this area and historical centre. The flat was very nice, clean and spacious, and staff were very friendly and helpful at all times. The area is very quiet and we slept with the window open every night. We loved the terrace and had every breakfast and lunch there. We will definitely book this flat again!
A tip: Our map advised us to go down Via Panisperna to get to historical centre - we found that it was very easy to go down Via Milano, cross Via Nazionale and go through the tunnel to Via dei Tritone and would recommend this route. It is also very easy to take the bus no 64 from many places in the city to Via Milano if you don´t want to walk all the time.
Cozy and charming flat nested in an area close to the Colloseum
My husband and I stayed at the Ciancaleoni flat in april 2012 for 3 nights. We had an amazing time in Rome and the flat made our stay very comfortable. We are very pleased with Marida's service all the way from the booking process, welcoming us in Rome and checking out. She has been very helpful with all our request of paperwork for our Visa application as well arranging for last minute transfer. The flat is as described and pictured on the website (if not more!) - a truly charming combination of old historical building exterior with stylish and chic renovated interior. The flat have pretty much everything we need to make our stay comfortable (secure lock on doors, TV, Wifi, built in safe, mini kitchen etc),and its located conveniently close the Colloseum and a train station. We love everything the flat has got to offer and couldn't have picked a better place to stay in our first time trip in Rome. Thanks Marida and we sure hope to see you again in the future!!

Perfect Flat in the heart of Rome!
My husband and I stayed at this great little flat for our first trip to Rome. It was perfect! We were looking for something for Easter weekend, which means crazy rate hikes. We found this cute, modern, and affordable studio which was perfect for our four nights in Rome. The place was spotless when we checked in, and Marida and her staff were very helpful in moving up our check-in time when we caught an earlier flight.
The bathroom and kitchen are newly updated. The kitchen has everything you's need, which for us was just a refrigerator. Why cook at home, when you have amazing restaurants at your fingertips! The bed is a little too firm for my taste, but not uncomfortable. I find it hard to find good beds in Europe, and this was better than most.
The location is a short walk from the Palatino and the Colosseum. It is not in the super crowded areas near the Trevi Fountain or the Spanish Steps, but it is only a few block from the Metro. We liked the neighborhood, and never felt unsafe at all. It's a 10-15 minute walk from Termini, which is convenient, and it's not close enough for some of the grittiness of that area. The little terrace was a great perk, only if the weather was a little warmer, we would have been able to get more use out of it!
Overall, we loved our stay and would stay here again in a heartbeat. It's great for couple or a family with a small child. The flat is one floor up, but there is a lift. Thanks again to Marida and her staff- we had an excellent stay!
I have nothing but praise for the Ciancaleoni Flat. The location was perfect, about 3 minutes walk to the nearest Metro station, with shops and restaurants all in the vicinity.
The flat itself was very well equipped with whatever we needed for our one week stay in Rome. It was a bit too cold to use the terrace on most days, but when we did, it was an extremely pleasant experience.
Lastly, Marida was friendly and prompt in her emails before the trip and when we actually made it to Rome, she spent a great deal of time explaining how the things in the flat worked as well as tips on exploring Rome.
All in all, this flat is highly recommended.
Delightful central location, tasteful decor, tranquil, would sta
Lovely little apartment, tastefully decorated and furnished with all modern amenities and access to a delightful terrace with a comfy sofa; very relaxing and quiet - no traffic noise. Car transfer to and from the airport was arranged by Marida and was prompt and courteous - much easier than battling with trains and directions! Large supermarket opposite the Metro station (go to the station, up the steps and across the road) about 3mins from the apartment. We took the Metro once to the Vatican but otherwise walked everywhere else - Colliseum about 8 mins, Spanish Steps about 20mins. The apartment is situated in a picturesque part of the city with narrow, cobbled streets, each with bars and restaurants so no problem finding somewhere to eat! Would have liked some English channels on the TV but you can't have everything!! Would definitely recommend as a base for seeing the sights of the Eternal City!
Ps: One warning - we travelled on the Metro at rush hour with some friends, it was incredibly busy (makes London Underground seem quiet and sedate!) and 2 of our friends were pick-pocketed so beware!!!
Pps: Does no-one in Europe use a kettle??? We've never had one in any of the rental places we've been
A pleasant stay, a wonderful experience and a great host!
This beautiful flat is excellent both for its location and its charm. You will find a nicely dressed table, a side kitchen with dishwasher, cook top, microwave and fridge. The bedroom is large, bright and modernly decorated. There is also a wardrobe and a locker. The bathroom looks like rustic with its stone walls, but very elegant and modern as well. It's great having a shower after a "tiring touristic day” and then relaxing in the terrace with a glass of wine. We loved the atmosphere of the apartment, the area, the typical shops and we appreciated that characteristic neighborhood.
The staff cannot be more kind and thoughtful. From the first contact to the check in time till the end of the stay, the ongoing assistance was very helpful and pleasant. The reservation you make online is a very simple process. After securing your reservation, you will be contacted approximately one week prior your arrival to define final details and to reserve a private transfer from the airport (I did). Upon arrival you will be warmly greeted by Marida's friendly hand and introduced in the apartment. Let me say that it is even better than photos. Explanations about the area and the main sites are clear and helpful. Also, you will find a form with all instructions about the apartment.
Thank you for our unforgettable stay in Rome!!!
We loved Ciancaleoni Flat!!
My sister and I were in Rome for our first time and we loved the city. We don't like staying in hotels, so we opportunely booked this apartment in a very central accommodation.
The photos describe it all: the flat is fully furnished and ideal for a couple. Comfortable bed, clean, fully provided kitchen, although very central located no traffic noise, nice relaxing balcony, and wireless internet. We strongly recommend this apartment to enjoy Rome easy going. Helpful and available personnel!
Great Location and Friendly Staff
We were greeted at the airport by the airport transfer that was arranged by Mirida. When we arrived at the flat Mirida and her partner met us in the laneway and carried our bags to the room. They were very courteous and allowed us to store our bags in the room even though the room was not ready yet as it was still being cleaned.
The apartment is small but clean and well located. It is only a 10 minute walk to the colesseum and 15-20 min. walk to most of the other attractions. Ternimi station is less than a 10 min. walk as well. There are many resturants and grocery stores in the area and we always felt safe walking through the neighbourhood. The value for your money can't be beat. The only negative is that the internet connection is weak and slow but I am not sure if that is normal for Rome? All in all I would reccommend this flat.
Great location, fantastic flat with all amenities
I loved staying in Ciancaleoni Flat for several reasons. The location itself is great, within walking distance one can find the Colosseo area as well as Termini Railway Station, not to mention the cute Monti area with its lovely atmosphere where the flat can be found. The flat is clean, with all the amenities one can expect either for a shorter or a longer period of stay. The kitchen is equipped with a microwave owen, dishwasher, cutlery, cofee maker etc., the room facilities include tv, radio, air-conditioning with a comfortable double bed and a big window that makes the room quite bright. It is nicely decorated, I would say it is ideal for 1 or 2 persons and I would definitely stay there again!
Great location and great staff, but not without caveats.
My boyfriend and I decided to go to Rome to celebrate the New Year and wanted a central location - within walking distance to the attractions and/or metro. The Ciancaleoni Flat provided exactly this. It is within walking distance to the Colosseum, Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, Piazza Venezia and even Trastevere (if you don't mind a longer walk). Set on an interior, private street, the apartment is insulated from much street noise and traffic which makes it very quiet, but it is remarkably close to many fantastic restaurants and shops. The apartment is clean, and comfortable - the perfect size for a couple seeking a short getaway. The apartment has a large and very beautiful private terrace, which is clean, ideally decorated and secure. It is perfect for dining or having a glass of wine. The booking process is very efficient and Marida was very nice and responsive to inquiries regarding parking and arrival. Upon arrival, Sylvia was equally pleasant and very helpful in giving us advice and recommendations for shopping, dining and entertainment, in addition to an interesting history of the Ciancaleoni Palace. They were both the consummate professionals.
Although our stay was primarily positive, there were some drawbacks worth mentioning.
The shower was very small - which made it difficult to shower without touching the shower walls and doors (may be typical of Italy), and the hot water was not sufficient to accommodate 2 people. On 2 of our 4 days, we ran out of hot water; once when we showered immediately after each other (not enough hot water for my boyfriend to shower fully); and, a second time while I was showering and my boyfriend was washing 2 glasses in the kitchen. Also, even though there is wireless internet, the signal is very weak. Most times, we could only get 1 or 2 bars inside the flat. Finally, while the rental price was reasonable for the accommodation, I am not sure why we were charged a 20 euro early checkout fee to simply lock the door and leave the keys inside the flat (the same checkout process employed by a company we used in Venice - but without a fee).
Overall, I would recommend the flat for short stays, with the above noted caveats. I would have given the apartment 4 stars, but for the hot water problems and the shower size.
Response from NOSTROMONDO STAFF - 01/18/2012
Thank you for your review and advice, it helps us to better our service.
We are glad you and your boyfriend found CIANCALEONI FLAT a comfortable accommodation and we do thank you for the praise you made on the apartment, its location, its central neighbourhood and the picturesque area in which it is located. NOSTROMONDO® Staff is also grateful for the appreciation you showed for our service.
Nevertheless, we’re sorry you experienced some issues with the boiler that never happened before. All our previous Guests totally complimented us and hot water was never a problem. Anyway, your advice will be used promptly to repair or replace the current 60 lt boiler.
Regarding the wi-fi, although the average signal is 2 out of 5 bars, the connection is working properly. I can imagine that you probably suffered high traffic on the band due to Christmas Holidays.
Finally, I’d like to clarify that the additional fee (20€) for early check-out is pointed in the rental policies you signed and due to the fact that when you leave the apartment very early in the morning, with no standard check-out that normally happens after 8 am. , a delegate is sent shortly after to verify the status of the apartment.
Since Customer Satisfaction is the pillar of NOSTROMONDO® philosophy , we hope to host you again, and we’re sure you will fully enjoy your next stay as all our Guests usually do.
Bellissimo posto dove stare a Roma!
Un posto stupendo e confortevole dove stare, in uno dei quartieri più belli e tradizionali di Roma: tranquillo e vivissimo allo stesso tempo, pieno di negozietti di artisti, design, antiquari, laboratori sartoriali, boutique, baretti..., a due passi dalla metropolitana Cavour, dal Colosseo, dall'Altare della Patria, dai Fori imperiali... insomma davvero comodissimo. Vivere la Capitale nel rione Monti e stare in questo appartamento è stato impagabile sotto tutti i punti di vista. L'appartamento è silenziosissimo e inserito all'interno di una perfetta ristrutturazione di una vecchia corte romana situata in una vietta pedonale spettacolare!!! E' arredato in modo stupendo e dotato davvero di ogni confort e servizio: tv satellitare, cucina attrezzata, condizionatori, filodiffusione, attacco iphone/mp3, asciugacapelli, ferro da stiro ecc... Insomma, ho trovato il mio indirizzo a Roma !!
Very enjoyable stay
We (my wife and I) stayed at the apartment for 4 nights, and we wish it could have been more. It is very nicely located - just a 15 minutes walk from the heart of Rome, but in a very quiet and comfortable location. Silvia was very helpful and kind, and we really enjoyed our stay. Ciancaleoni Flat is the place to stay without any doubt.

CIANCALEONI FLAT and all our staff will wait for your next trip to Rome.
Beautiful studio flat in an excellent location
This flat is ideal for anyone who wants to feel like they're really experiencing life in Rome. It has everything you need for a short stay, including access to a private roof terrace to relax on at the end of the day.
The staff were very friendly and really took the time when we arrived to tell us about the history of the building and the local area. The local delis, patisseries, gelato shops and pizza places were really great.
The flat is close to a Metro station and only a short walk to the Colosseum and and other other attractions.

thank you for your kindness. Rome, our CIANCALEONI FLAT and all our Staff will wait for you in your next trip in Rome to make it more than great...again.
Beautiful flat, very reasonable price, conveniently located
My wife and I really enjoyed the flat. It was the right price and was conveniently located to good restaurants and a train station.
Sylvia met us the day of our stay to help us check-in, walk through the apartment and make sure we were settled. She also arranged for a car on our departure day, which was extremely convenient.
The flat was in excellent condition. Because the kitchen was stocked with plenty of dishes, silverware, etc. we were able to save some money by eating breakfast and lunch in the room on some days. The terrace was a great place to sit in the evenings with a bottle of wine and watch the sun go down.
My only complaint was the lack of wireless in the flat. There was a coffeehouse nearby that had wireless, but we didn't feel like making the trek down there (or hauling our electronics to dinner).
Overall, I would definitely recommend the flat to someone who is looking for a place to stay that is centrally located, low cost, clean and in a nice neighborhood.

Dear Mr. Callis,
Thank you for your review.
We really appreciate your kindness.
It has been a pleasure to host you and your wife and we wait for your next trip. Fortunately, we solved with Internet connection, setting it as wireless, thus everything will be more than perfect for your next visit.
Excellent location for exploring ancient Rome
We were met at the Flat by the lovely Silvia who greeted us with open arms and a huge welcome. She gave us directions to various shops and restaurants as well as some very useful information on the area. (She also arranged a car to take us to the airport at the end of our stay). The Flat was absolutely everything we wanted - and the terrace was a real bonus. It is situated in an excellent location for exploring ancient Rome...with the Colosseum being just a 10 minute walk away! Most of the more popular landmarks were also within walking distance from the Flat - but for those who prefer public transport - the nearest Metro station was just 5 minutes away and only one stop from the Termini. The street was very quiet with no through traffic which made it very relaxing, with no disturbance at night. There is an excellent supermarket called 'Elite', in the street above the Metro Station, which stocked everything we could possibly have wanted for our stay. There is also a great restaurant called 'Cantina' at the bottom of the steps, at the end of the street, where you can either book a table or, do as we did - and get delicious Italian meals to take back and eat in the Flat or on the terrace! The accommodation in the Flat was perfect, with a well-equipped Kitchen and stylish Shower Room and everything was spotlessly clean. We had a wonderful 5 days in Rome and would definitely recommend this Flat to both family and friends. We would like to say a personal 'Thank you' to Silvia for all her attention and kindness throughout our stay. It made all the difference!

Absolutely great roof terrace and super location"
We very much enjoyed our stay at this apartment. Although it is not large, we loved the athmosphere of the building and the apt itself. The location was very nice: right in the middle of Monti, with it charming cafe's and restaurants nearby. But the greatest attraction of this apt is the roof terrace, which is right outside the apt. Here we could relax very comfortably, after a long day of sightseeing. We loved it!

Can't say enough good things
My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights in april. For the price, this is one of the best accomodation options in Rome. It is conveniently located near trains, etc. The surrounding neighborhood is great. The apartment is well appointed and laid out. We also dealt with Francesca who was great. It was like living in Rome for a short period instead of being there on a holiday. Our only complaints, and only reasons for not giving the property an excellent rating, were that we felt a more comprehensive guide to the immediate surrounding area should be included in the room for guests and the bathroom, being an interior, was a little damp and showing some watermarks. Don't get me wrong, Francesca is always available and did give us some pointed when we arrvied, but we missed a marked map, restaurant and shop recommendations, etc. More of these details would have been great, but this is a small thing to complain about, otherwise I would highly recommend this property.

What You Expect, and More!
Our stay was amazing! The place was just what we were expecting and more. The terrace was a dream! Francesca was very accommodating upon our arrival and was very helpful in suggesting restaurants, markets, and how to use the metro. We will definitely consider this flat for our next stay in Rome! Some suggestions that don't relate to the flat - eat at the restaurant at the bottom of the steps! It's amazing!! As well, the Ivanhoe Cafe (a little further down the hill) is a great place for breakfasts. There are business cards in the flat as suggestions, but the Ivanhoe Cafe doesn't have a sign...it's in the hotel at the bottom of the hill.
Lastly, the Elite grocery store was excellent. It was just up the stairs at Carvour station and across the street.
La comunicación con Nostromondo ha sido excepcional desde el primer minuto, muy atentos y puntuales a nuestra llegada desde Francesca a Germanica, el apartamento esta en una situación excelente cerca del Coliseo y a un minuto de la parada del metro, nuestra estancia en Roma ha sido estupenda.
We loved everything about the apartment, the location near to the metro and walking distance from the Forum. There was no traffice noise at all because of the location in a lovely pedestrian street.
There all kinds of shops nearby so we could prepare a few simple meals when we felt like relaxing on our private jasmine covered terrace. There ar great little trattorias in the neighbourhood too, away from the tourist crowds. It was nice to find an ironing board and a hair dryer in the apartment and even some olive oil, tea coffee etc. to start us off.
The Nostromondo staff were very helpfull.
A big thank you to Germana and Francesca!
Wonderful Treasure in Rome!
My husband and I were lucky enough to stay here for four days in our stay in Rome and the apartment is so clean and in a wonderful location. We were right by Cavour station and it was very easy to find. Francesca is very nice and met us right on time, was very easy to contact and recommended very good places for us to eat in Rome.
The apartment also comes with its own private terrace which was so lovely to have our own little wine and cheese party in the beautiful weather outside by our apartment. We loved staying at Cianceleoni Flat. We would definitely stay there again. Thanks Francesca!
Francesca couldn't have been more helpful in checking us in. The terrace was a real bonus in the evening, allowing us to eat outside. The flat is incredibly convenient for the Colosseum and Forum (only a 10/15 minute walk), although it takes a little longer to walk to other sites such as the Pantheon. We really enjoyed our stay in Rome and would recommend this flat. Had sterling been stronger against the Euro we would've given a higher score for value, but that's the way it goes!

This appartment is meeting everything
for solo travellers
even with private terrace
We were very pleased with the kind service and the excellent location of the apartement, on a quiet back street, but still within a few minutes walk to restaurants, shops and monuments. The apartement was perfect for two persons. The apartement was clean and well stocked with linen and towels.
Perfect! Relaxing and comfortable flat on a quiet street right i
the flat was in a perfect location. Lots of amazing restaurants nearby. supermarket very close too. 2 mins to metro stop, but everything is so close you won't need to use it! Night time was so quiet - slept like a dream!
The apartment was very comfortable with everything you need. I-pod docking station sound was very good. kitchen has everything you need. only thing missing was a kettle - but was not a big problem - could just boil water in a pan on the hob.
no internet, i think Francesca was planning on installing some soon.
Francesca, the owner was very pleasant, helpful and accommodating at all times - from initial enquiries right through to checking out.
a wonderful place to stay - will be back again for sure!

A perfect place in the heart of Rome
What a lovely place for a vacation! This one bedroom studio is centrally located only steps away from a metro stop, grocery stores, internet cafes and great restaurants. The patio is beautiful and the kitchen is well equipped for any of your Italian-meal cooking needs.
Francesca was available and a great source of suggestions and recommendations for what to do while in Rome. We loved it for our honeymoon and have recommended to friends already!
Hello from Moscow
Excellent location, with quiet and comfortable. A wonderful terrace. Be sure to return to the hospitable Francesca, stay in these apartments.
Hip and Romanesque with friendly service and great location
Francesca was the sweetest person, she really made everything that much better for her. We inconvenienced her by being late upon arrival but she actually apologized to us for being a minute late after we got there! So friendly, I couldn't have asked for more. We really enjoyed the accommodation, the artwork and decor is thoughtfully placed and everything was so fresh and clean. We also really enjoyed the terrace and especially the location. We felt like we were living in the city!
Apartment exceeded our expectation, great time in fab location
The service was truely excellent. Our train into Rome was delayed and Francesca went out of her way to come and meet us. She was very welcoming and gave us lots of additional information to help us make the most of our short stay in the city. The apartment was gorgeous, we would love to live their which is a sign of how much we liked it. It's perfect for two. It's really close to the local metro stop, which allows you to get to all of the main attractions quickly. It's an easy walk in as well. There's a lovely coffee shop 2 mins away that do a lovely illey coffee and croissant. We liked the terrace the best. The least was that we couldn't stay longer and a minor thing is that there weren't any tumblers / mugs for drinks, just wine glasses.
Fanstatic clean modern appartment in a great and quiet location.
We stayed in this fantastic little apartment in august 2010 and couldn't have wished for a better experience. Francesca and Laura were very helpful and super lovely - providing us with everything we needed during our stay. The apartment is located a little bit out of the touristy part of Rome which was perfect for us, this meant we were able to escape the crowds and get a peaceful nights sleep, while still being able to walk everywhere we wanted to go. We would totally stay there again. Thank you Francesca and Laura!

Lovely apartment, terrace and area
This was a lovely little apartment and had everything we needed. We had originally wanted an apartment near the Piazza Navona and were changed to here at the last minute. We were actually really pleased we were changed to this area. We walked from the train station, in fact walked to almost everything. Close to the Colosseum and other sights, but also felt nice and quiet. Lovely to walk to the end of the street down the steps to more cafes. The little terrace was lovely to sit at the end of the day. Laura and the staff were really helpful with all emails and phone calls answered promptly. A really enjoyable experience.

I would return here in a second!
From the fantastic communication with Francesca (who went above and beyond in answering questions and providing information prior to arrival)to the location, to the local sights and sounds, this couldn't have been a better choice. I was delayed after my flight and Francesca not only orchestrated my arrival at the flat with a taxi driver, but she remained so gracious even though I delayed her day by at least 2 hours. The terrace alone is worth the price of the flat and it was a great place to unwind after a great day of sightseeing! The flat is surrounded by character-filled eateries, grocery stores, an internet cafe, and is just a few minutes walk from Cavour station. There's even an Irish bar 5 minutes away on foot! I look forward to returning...
We had a wonderful stay in Rome, the flat was small but very good, but the bed was a little too hard. The location was perfect we could walk to almost everything we wantede to see. And with a metro station only 2 minutes away, it was easy to go even further away.
We had a lot of questions before the stay and our mails were answered immediatly by the staff, first Roberto later Franceska. That ment a lot for us.
Departamento central, practicamente al lado del Coliseo. La antiguedad del palacio al exterior no deja imaginar la modernidad y el design al interior que està muy bien curado, limpio y con todas las comodidades. El chef cocinò para nosotros y nos sirviò la cena en la maravillosa terraza desde la cual se veìan todos los techos del "Rione Monti", barrio caracteristico y sugestivo: inolvidable aniversario!!!
Hello, I enjoyed my stay in this apartment very much, it was a great location to visit the city center and a cheap solution!!
The apartment is big and well decorated, very clean and perfect for organization and equipment.
I really recommend to go there to stay in this beautifull city!
