About Marco

mok'house is primarily a concept of hospitality: our aim is to ensure that our guests really get to know the real Rome, avoiding the tourist traps and making the most out of their stay. We like to reccomend the best solutions according to the taste and interests of our guests.

mok'house is the result of hundreds of trips for study, work and holiday, a master's degree in hotel management and 10 years of experience in customer care in major global sport events (Olympics and World Cup).

Marco purchased this apartment in 1901

Why Marco chose Rione I Monti

I was so lucky I didn't have to buy it: my great grand father bought this building at the beginning of the past century (1901). Now that is one of the most famous neighbourhood of Rome (the 1st and most ancient too), I started this business with the aim of giving the best of Rome to my guests!

What makes this apartment unique

All our guests also have access to our rooftop terrace, the ideal space to enjoy a glass of wine while admiring a stunning sunset, having a BBQ (upon request), or play chess while listening to music.

You will live right in the heart of the true Rome: we are in the so called 'Rione Monti', 10mins walking from the Coliseum and walking distance from all the main monuments. The area is alive but not noisy. The restaurants and the wine bars that populate our neighbourhood are the best in the city.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Mok'House was a great place to stay - clean, comfortable, convenient. The hosts were a pleasure to deal with and provided many helpful suggestions from beginning to end. Rooftop deck was lovely, especially at sunset. Apartment was modern and well cared for. We would love to return some day.

What a great place to stay in middle of Rome!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had the opportunity to vacation in Rome the in July. We were fortunate enough that we "found" MokHouse and Marco. The accommodations were better than advertised, and Marco's attentative manner was above and beyond what we expected. His excellent English made communications very easy. His recommendations for sight seeing and restaurants were spot on as well. One cannot go wrong staying at the MokHouse!

Location very convenient, Spacious apartment

  • 4 of 5

Hosts are very welcoming, apartment is very spacious. Lots of information provided regarding restaurants and tourist sites etc. Very conveniently located near train station, metro and walking distance to major sites. Only downside was a bit of noise from nearby bar but this was a minor item. We would definitely recommend.

Where to begin… Start by staying at Mok’House! This place was perfect in so many ways. Starting with the great communication from Marco and his team. They were easy to reach and very responsive. At the last minute we asked if they would set up a car service to meet us at the airport. I received a confirmation with all the details the same day. The apartment was perfect. We were traveling with our adult daughters. The two bedrooms are a nice size, the beds are very comfortable, the bathrooms are modern. The apartment had a very nice large kitchen. But the best part of all of it is the roof top deck - so beautiful and peaceful. There is an “Honor Bar” up there were you can have a beer or a bottle of wine and just let the front desk know what you drank. The location is spectacular, an easy walk to everything. The neighborhood where the apartment is located is charming. Great cafés and restaurants. On our last night there Marco told us were we should eat and made reservations for us – the restaurant was perfect and made for a wonderful last night in Rome. Then next morning when we settled up with our “Honor Bar” charges and gave Sylvia and Claudia the keys, we asked them for directions to the train station. They said “We were just going to go get some coffee, we’ll walk you there”. If I am ever lucky enough to be in Rome again, I will stay at Mok’House.

Perfect Location, Everything you need

  • 5 of 5

Location, location, location. This apartment is less than 10 minutes from the train station, so we were able to walk there with our luggage. Even if you get there before check-in time, the owners will meet up with you and keep your luggage for the day, so you can start exploring. Same on your last day. Just leave the luggage and come back later in the day to pick it up. The colosseum and forum are a 10 minute walk. But you can also take the metro since the station is only a block away. Right outside the building there is a store that sells great bakery items and drinks, perfect place to buy a quick breakfast. A couple of steps away you will find restaurants and grocery stores. So you don’t need a car and most of the time you don’t even need public transportation. The apartment is spacious and has everything you need including soap, toilet paper, spices. You also have access to the roof top where you can eat in the evening or enjoy a drink. They even have a herb garden for cooking. The beds were very comfortable. Also the managers were incredibly helpful and available on site every day. The only think I want to warn you about is the shower. Italian showers are fairly small and that is the case everywhere. So if you are used to a large shower at home, don’t expect the same in Italy. 😉?. Loved this place and I highly recommend it.

Book now before it's gone!

  • 5 of 5


Before reading this review, go to the booking page on whatever site you are on and book an apartment at Mok House - you will not be disappointed...... Now that you have done that, you can relax and read my review. I sent my payment on line and done! A place to stay in Rome guaranteed, frustration over. Mok House exudes vacation - what a location and what an apartment! Location, location location - 10 minute walk from termini,15 from colosseum, 5 from two other subway stops, 5 from a taxi stand, shops, wonderful restaurants, hidden restaurants, quick food, supermarkets, mini markets, coffee shops, even a Chinese place just up the street and shawarma place around the corner if you are interested (we weren't :-) Mok House is located in the Monti area. We stayed in the "Classic Apartment." It is a very large two bedroom, two bath, full kitchen and large living area. One of the two couches has a pullout. We were three, but I could see four - five staying very comfortably. One shower was smallish (I am biggish) but I got used to it - staying at Mok House is like staying at a friends house, after a day or two, you get used to where the light switches are, etc. Bring bar soap and shampoo along (soft soap is supplied) The kitchen is fully stocked with utensils and even coffee! It has a cooktop but no oven. There is a clothes washer, drying racks in the master walk in closet (clothes dried overnight) it is good for small washes. Plenty of bedding. Internet good and fast in living room, farther away from front door it would deteriorate - no big deal. We stayed in January, as is we didn't make use of the roof top patio (that looked awesome) The heating was fine. Standard radiator heat - these operated quietly at night. During the day you could add additional heat by wall mounted heat/AC units. These would supply AC in the hot months - they were very quiet in the heat mode. The floors are tiled, I wish I would have brought my birkenstocks along to pad around in. Some reviewers complained about noise - well if you want silence book your vacation in Edgerton Wisconsin, if you want to hear the sounds of life stay in Rome! It wasn't noisy.Sylvia welcomed us warmly on our unexpected early arrival and helped we very weary travelers to our apartment. Claudia came up later to check and share a wonderful cup of coffee with us. We finally metMarco, the owner, the next day. The guy just lives and breaths service. Stay at Mok House - you'll love it!

Great spot in Rome!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the mok'house was wonderful! Making a reservation was easy and Marco and his staff got back to us anytime we emailed a question. There was never a moment when the accomodations didn't work for us. From the minute we arrived, Claudia helped us to feel welcome and at home. Our first glass of wine on the roof top deck was heavenly! We can't thank Claudia enough for her time and consideration. She knew everything about our neighborhood and helped us with walking directions, finding places to eat, suggestions for activities, confirming our car for a tour, arranging our pick up to return to the airport, etc. etc. In addition, Claudia was charming and funny! The apartment was great - exactly as presented but better than we ever imagined it could be. It was great having a kitchen as well as common space for our group of 6. There were some very hot days while we were in Rome and the air conditioning worked perfectly - we were never uncomfortable. The location of mok'house was so convenient for walking as well as getting a cab if necessary. We have only positive things to stay - it's a fabulous place to stay.
