About Giusy

I was born and raised in this house that my family owned. At the beginning, it was one large apartment and then my sister and I decided to split in two and to renovate. I love this house and while renovating it, I tried to leave some elements in order not to cancel the past, for example, the walnut doors and some furniture, which were chosen by a famous past architect. I am a visual artist (ww.giusylauriola.com) and these apartments are just between my new house and my studio so that I am always nearby to assist the hosts. I love these houses and my city and I am sure that your stay will be a fabulous experience .

Giusy purchased this apartment in 1960

Why Giusy chose Rome

My sister and I decided to rent it because we did not want to sell it since we love it very much and also because we wanted to get into this new activity. Furthermore, Rome and the Monteverde district really lend themselves to this type of rental

What makes this apartment unique

For sure it is a comfortable house, quite by night and decorate with taste and renovate this summer (2015). The SOLARS terrace and the DELIGHT balcony offer the guests the opportunity to benefit of the external area and to relax after a turing day around Rome. The house is near the center reachable with a wide range of buses and above all less expensive then one similar in Rome center.

Beautiful Property and Fantastic Host!

  • 5 of 5

We visited Italy and Greece for our 25th wedding anniversary. We booked this apartment for four nights of our stay in Rome. It suited our needs perfectly! It was just outside the downtown core of Rome with a fairly short tram ride to reach all the sites that we wanted to see. The apartment was clean and had everything we needed for our stay. The highlight for us was the owner, Giusy. Such a beautiful person and host! Giusy was very helpful throughout our stay and checked in several times just to see how we were doing even after we had finished our stay in her apartment. A beautiful personal touch! We would highly recommend this apartment for a trip to Rome and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Grazie di tutto!

Beautiful Spacious Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Giusy was an amazing wonderful kind hostess. She answered any question we had even before we asked! The apartment is spacious, elegant yet modern, very clean and extremely safe. We traveled with our 9 year old daughter who enjoyed having her own bedroom and terrace. The shower was perfect, in fact, everything in the apartment was perfect. It was nice to stay in a non touristy neighborhood after a long day among tourists. No car is necessary as there's a public bus right outside the apartment building. If you do have a rental car, there's street parking in the neighborhood. The local bakery/cafe was a delicious treat 5 minutes away. We would without a doubt stay in this very nice apartment again. Giusy takes pride in her childhood home and treats her guests like family.

Great host and apartment.

  • 5 of 5

Giusy was an excellent host, very friendly, interesting and informative. She explained everything in English and introduced us to the area, especially to the exceptional Cose buone del forno - Trevisiol (a deli, bakery, cafe, shop) just across the road from the apartment. The number 44 bus (the stop is opposite the apartment) and the number 8 tram (a short walk away) take you direct to the centre of Rome.

The apartment was very comfortable, clean and spacious and had everything we needed for our stay, even a dishwasher in the kitchen. The shower was amazing and hot water plentiful for us 3 adults and the beds very comfortable. The terrace was lovely and sunny in the morning, a great way to start the day with coffee and shaded in the evening after a hot day in Rome. We would thoroughly recommend this apartment which is accessed via a pleasant courtyard behind locked gates.

Vacaciones en Solaris

  • 5 of 5

Excelente apartamento, bellamente amueblado, espacioso, seguro, nitido, remodelado y con muy buena ubicación. Cuenta con parada de autobus al cruzar la calle, colmados, panadería, pizerías, farmacia y otros servicios a pasos del apartamento. Giusy, nuestra anfitriona, es una excelente persona,comunicativa y atenta. Tuve la oportunidad de visitar el apartamento más pequeño, contiguo al Solaris y reune las mismas características. Definitivamente, regresaremos. Giusy, te enviamos un cariñoso abrazo.

Accueil très chaleureux

  • 4 of 5

Superbe appartement tout confort avec 2 terrasses, très agréable pour une famille avec grands enfants. Un peu éloigné du centre de Rome, 30 à 60 mn en bus, tram selon l'heure de circulation. Route passante, avec restaurants et commerces proches. Propriétaire très accueillante !! Super séjour.

The beauty and convenience of the Monteverde district is first of all the fact to be near center town but without having the nightlife noise. It offers a view of the everyday life of Roman people and not only tourists. Monteverde has two famous parks: Villa Pamphili and Villa Sciarra if you want to make a walk in the green side and the Gianicolo, where there is the most beautiful Rome panorama, where since 1847 at 12.00 am a cannon shoot blank for the will of Pio IX.
