Why Paolo Guerra chose Quartiere XX Ardeatino

In the old times, the Latins used the term CorUrbis to mention the "Centre of Roma", meaning the centre of the Roman Empire. Today, when you hear of "Urbe", it indicates Roma as the quintessential Latin city consecrated by the gods, a city that tells more than 2000 years of history between sacred monuments, millennial ruins, and ancient testimonials: The heart of the Eternal City. To us, choosing "CorUrbis" as a name for a Roman holiday means offering you the ideal place to live the heart of Roma, not like a tourist, but like a citizen, free from the hotel or bed & breakfast hours, and in a penthouse where the Gaudium Magnum ("Great Joy") is a synonym of relaxation, tranquillity and hospitality.

Absolutely Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

What can I say, this apartment is amazing! We had a wonderful stay. Staying here was like living in Rome. The apartment was well stocked with basic food and cleaning supplies and the staff could not be more helpful. Spotlessly clean! Short walk to the bus stop. We also used the metro and taxis. I highly recommend downloading the app My Taxi. We used it several times. You can pay with Paypal or in cash. You put into the phone where you are going so if the driver does not speak English he will know where to take you. I highly recommend this apartment. We did have one slight problem when checking out the light switches. We touched one with that put down all the security shields and locked up the apartment tighter than Fort Knox. Made the apartment almost pitch black. The trick was figuring out how to get them back up. This should be explained at check in. Loved the balcony and terrace. The only thing I would do to improve the stay is to install either Satellite TV with English channels for non Italian guests or to add English movies and player. My husband loves TV. No matter where we go the first thing he does is turn on the TV. We enjoyed evening walks and there are a few stores and restaurants nearby. Check out was quick and easy. My only regret was that we could not stay longer. Many thanks to Paolo and Staff.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the compliments, we are happy you enjoyed it offers gaudium magnum from here and how easy it is to visit the beauties of Rome. We regret the inconvenience you have had with the shutters, the apartment is controlled by a home automation system that, to make it easier exit, lights and shutters closed with a single button leaving only the emergency lights. We also have an internal TV channel (ch.00) which are transmitted tourist films about Roma, in English, and n.10 international satellite channels (ch.100-109) in English, French and German. These functions are described at check-in, probably there was some misunderstanding, sorry. You were wonderful guests and we'd love to have you back guests to Rome. Arrivederci. Paolo Guerra

We just got back from Italy, we spent 4 weeks traveling around and our final destination was Paolos place, it was absolutely the best , the apartment is exactly as described and as shown in the pictures; it is EXTREMELY CLEAN, and has all the amenities you need to feel just at home!! the Welcome from Salvina and the treats we fond upon arriving were a bonus since we were so tired and did not fell like going to the market right then. We felt safe and happy!! They are really the best hosts ever...Please if you ever need to go to Rome and find a nice place away from the croud but close enough to enjoy all the city has to offer.. consider this GEM!

Thank you a million times!

Toller Aufenthalt im ferienhaus Gaudium Magnum

  • 5 of 5

Liebe Saretta und Paolo,

wir möchten uns für den wunderbaren Urlaub in Ihrer Ferienwohnung bedanken. Es war alles perfekt.

Wir können dieses Domizil auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen. Es war jeden Abend ein Genuss nach einem anstrengenden Tag in Rom in die ruhige Wohnung zurückzukehren.

Außerdem ist alles notwendige ( Geschäfte, super Pizzeria, Bus) in der Nähe. Auch die Via Appia ist bequem zu Fuss zu erreichen und auf jeden Fall einen Besuch wert.

Die kleinen Überraschungen am Rande Getränke usw. haben uns sehr erfreut. Ein Danke noch an Salvina. Sie stand uns in deutscher Sprache immer mit Rat und Tat zur Seite. Wir würden diese Wohnung auf jeden Fall wieder buchen, sollten wir die wundervolle Stadt nochmals besuchen.

Viele liebe Grüße

Gisela u. Peter

Ingrid u. Joachim

Nice place with good service

  • 4 of 5

Nice apartment and our hostess was very nice and friendly. Good service and help whenever we needed it, even small details like portable wifi and things we could eat for breakfast and drinks were supplied when we first came.

Highly recommended if you want a nice and peaceful place to stay at while you are in Rome.

Einfach perfekt

  • 5 of 5

Die Wohnung ist genau, wie auf den Fotos abgebildet. Sehr gepflegt mit einer wunderschönen Terrasse. Genial für Selbstversorger. Wer gerne etwas abseits wohnt und den Lärm der Stadt hinter sich lassen möchte, trotzdem in 15 Minuten mit dem Bus an den Sehenswürdigkeiten ist, ist hier bestens aufgehoben. Super Restaurants und Bäckerei/Metzgerei/Kolonialwaren um die Ecke. Ein Glas Wein am Abend auf der Terrasse und die Welt ist herrlich.

Nicht vergessen möchten wir die herzliche Betreuung vor Ort, notabene deutschsprachig!! Gastfreundschaft wird hier Gross geschrieben und man geht als Freunde wieder zurück.

The apartment is located in the residential area of the Ardeatino district, filled with public connections to easily reach the centre of Roma, immersed in the Ancient Appia Park. In this exiting house, you will be directly in contact with nature and Roman history, a few hundred metres away from the San Sebastiano Basilica and the catacombs, on the Jubilee way of the Via Appia Antica where you can observe various sepulchres and ruins of the imperial villas. Upon request and for those who love the two wheels, the property will put modern bicycles at your disposal for wonderful rides over amazing city paths that are reserved to cyclists. This way, you can admire all the Roman beauty, traveling also on the centre roads without any traffic hassle.

Coming back from your trip you will find some bars for a delicious coffee break, a pharmacy, post office, ironing services, tobacconist shop, some banks, basic services, restaurants for a dinner not far from home, grocery shops, and supermarkets if you wish to spend an evening cooking and enjoying the privacy and peacefulness of the apartment. Instead, if you wish to spend a relaxing day without getting too far from the house, at approximately 750 metre from the apartment you will find a gym with an internal swimming pool, that during summer it is completely opened.

To comfortably reach the city centre you can use: The public transportation with the bus lines 716, 30, 160, and 218, both ways, all of them just a few hundred metre from the house. The Car Sharing service or taxi is also available by calling the 06 0609. The rental car is a few steps from the house. Alternatively, you can use, at affordable rates, the private car rental with a driver on the hour for tours around or outside Roma. Feel free to contacts us to request more information.
