Brit & Italian couple with bright & cozy room (double, single or twin) in well-connected, sophisticated area close to central Rome & Tiburtina station, Bologna metro 3 mins walk. Home-made bread, great coffee, trip advice & language assistance.

The space

We have a bright and airy room in a large 1930s apartment in the heart of Rome. It can be configured for a couple, a single traveller, or two friends - let us know.

The apartment is in a Mussolini-era building, and is opposite the Police training college, so it's both safe and quiet in the evenings. There's an amazing view from the living room to the Appenine mountains.

Guest access

There's high-speed fibre-optic wifi, and the room has a notebook computer for guests to use if required. Guests also have near-exclusive use of one of the bathrooms during their stay. Towels, shower gel, shampoo etc. provided.

Interaction with guests

We're seasoned travellers ourselves, and we know what travellers need and want. Jim is British and Stefy is Italian, so any questions about Rome you need answering we can help with. Jim has worked in the tourism industry in Rome so has intimate familiarity with most of the attractions, and can help out with recommendations, pre-booking tickets, etc. Stefy is a born-and-bred Roman with fluent English, so she knows the score, can tell you about Roman life, culture and food, and can help you out booking restaurants etc. or if you have any linguistic difficulties.

We look forward to hanging out with you - or we can leave you the hell alone - just let us know.

Other things to note

Jim is a keen amateur baker, so you will be treated to home-baked bread during your stay.

You can smoke on the balcony.

Jim was an excellent host, and we had an amazing time in Rome. The apartment was easy to find and Jim helped us right away with parking in the back, which was very convenient. A delicious breakfast spread with homemade bread was a great way to start each day. Jim also provided restaurant recommendations in the neighborhood and put together a few walking tours for us, which were really helpful to follow as we explored the city. Highly recommend staying here!

We're a german couple, stayed for 2 weeks and had a really good time with Jim and Steffi. They are very kind and open minded - we especially enjoyed our conversations about Italien, British and German culture. :-) Everything was like described in the ad, the room was very pleasant and Jim prepared a delicious breakfast with self-baked bread. During our working project in Rome for one year we had different flats, this was the first one that was really quiet, so we could sleep with open window. Danke für alles - wir kommen gerne wieder! :-)

It was a perfect roman vacation at Stefi &Jim, thank you guys! The room is lovely and very clean, like the kitchen, living room and the - almost private-bathroom. The apartment is quiet, bright and it has a great location: just 3 minutes from the metro, with great coffee bar on the way. The neighborhood is lovely, with good restaurants, supermarkets and a perfect gelateria. Jim and Stefi are both great hosts, very friendly and always ready to help. Jim is a really talented baker:) and we enjoyed a gorgeus meal together. Thank you for everything!

Staying with Jim was absolutely a pleasure! The apartment was in a very quiet and nice neighbourhood and very accessible by public transportation, so it was easy to get around. The room was very nice and clean, next to the bathroom that was spotless as well. Jim made us feel very welcome and gave us advice on where to go and what to see in Rome, which revealed places that we wouldn't otherwise see. We were also free to use the kitchen and the living room, so we didn't feel that we were living out of our suitcase either. Jim made sure that we would benefit as much as possible from our stay, so hen we're going back to Rome, we will definitely consider going back staying with Jim!

I'm a born expat with a passion for other cultures, other peoples, and in particular other food. I've lived in many different parts of the world and have spent most of the rest of the time travelling - sometimes planned but mostly by accident. Living an unplanned life can cause troubles, but the rewards of spontanaiety are greater than them.

Stefy is a university researcher with a passion for travel, who's spent time in south and central America.

Right now we're settled in central Rome, but who knows what the future may bring us?
