La Passione is an old house which we have refurbished in style with loving care. It has been brought back to life using simple and natural materials: wood window sills, parquet flooring, tatami, beautiful fabrics from Okinawa and mainland Japan. Sleeps 8/10 (beds and futons). Stairs only. Free high speed WIFI. We have two free parking spaces. 10 mins walk to Kokusai-dori and 15 min Kenchomae monorail station. Check-in by appointment. No TV
The building has 2 floors (European counting, 3 US counting). The rooms are on the 1 st and 2nd floor (European counting or 2nd and 3rd floor US counting). The ground floor has an Italian and European feel.
On the first floor the two rooms both have an en-suite bathrooms. The rooms have western beds and the materials and colors used give a distinctive Asian and Japanese touch.
The second floor has two tatami rooms, one Ryukyu and the other Japanese tatami, with 2 futons each. Guests staying on this floor share the bathroom and toilet. The roof terrace is a place to relax.
Each room has a small balcony, a minibar fridge, tea and coffee facilities, and a hair dryer. The bathrooms have showers with a large head. As in the Japanese fashion we kindly ask guests to remove their shoes: we do provide room slippers.
Last but not least there is a roof garden to enjoy the early evening breeze with a view of the rooftops of the neighbourhood.
The ground floor area is arranged as a cafe'. We serve Italian food Monday to Fridays. During the week'ends the ground floor turns into a dining room and lounge with carpets and one sopha.
We also have futons for 2 extra guests.
Fast WIFI is accessible throughout the building.

Lively and enthusiast, I love being with people and learning from them. I have travelled extensively and exploring places is one of my favourite pastimes. I read and watch movies with great pleasure, alternating serious topics to delightful escapades. I like my food, though unfortuantely I am allergic to gluten and dairy.
