Great apartment and location, nice staff.
We are in the Esquilino Quarter; an area that has been named after one of the seven hills of the capital, directly in the center of Rome. The apartment is only 50 meters away from the Subway station “Metro A – Vittorio Emanuele”, just a few minutes by foot from Termini station, and other interesting areas of historic-cultural interest in the capital.
The Basilica Santa Maria Maggiore and San Giovanni in Laterano can be reached easily by foot as well as the via dei Fori Imperiali and the Colosseum, which are part of the pulsating heart of the history and art in antique Rome.
Upon leaving the building you will reach the historic Piazza Vittoria, which is not far from the apartment. The Piazza is surrounded by large arcades in the style of the 19th century. In recent years, it has been the showcase of important building renovations that have returned some of the beautiful buildings to their former splendor. Across the Piazza you can reach by foot the historic market of Piazza Vittorio, the most famous of the capital. Passing through its colors, scents, and flavors it will make you feel as if you were traveling continents and cultures far, far away.
The Esquilino quarter, in which the apartment can be found, is rich in restaurants, bars and multiethnic stores that have everything, and which is a real melting pot of races, languages and cultures that literally render Rome the “Caput Mundi”.
The Jazz House is an apartment of 45 square meters facing the quiet and bright interior courtyard of the building complex. It is located on the third floor of a building from the 19th century with an elevator. The building has been carved out of an old convent.
The apartment has been recently renovated and furnished ex-novo. The modern grey parquet floor and the vaulted ceiling in Roman tiles, illuminated by LED lights, render the ambience welcoming and elegant at the same time.
The living room is furnished with a functional fiery red kitchen, which includes a microwave, fridge, dishwasher, freezer, a glass dining table with 5 chairs in faux leather, a comfortable sofa bed and a flat screen TV on the wall.
The ambience is further enriched by posters and displaying some of the main protagonists and places of Jazz, which will lead the guest into the magical musical atmosphere from back then. The living room is completed by its most characteristic corner: a shelf with a gramophone in nut wood with a distinctive trumpet, manually operated with a lever. You can turn back in time and listen to the music from the golden years of the African American culture on authentic Bakelite discs from back then.
A vestibule with a comfortable wall closet and a washing machine lead to the two bedrooms, which are small but functional. There are a single and a double bedroom, the latter furnished with a bed with useful container space underneath, and a TV. Both bedrooms are furnished and illuminated with elegant retro-lighted pictures. In keeping with the style and theme of the entire apartment, these show scenes of the Jazz era as well.
The bathroom is furnished with a comfortable shower with a glass door. There is air conditioning in the apartment in all areas and free WI-FI internet connection.
Even though the surface area is rather small, every small space has been used as well as possible in order to render the apartment as comfortable as possible and to offer our guests an intimate and welcoming atmosphere.

Great apartment and location, nice staff.
We had a very pleasant stay in this apartment. When we arrived, a nice lady was waiting for us to give all the explanations about the apartment and the neighborhood. We enjoyed the location, close to all main touristic attractions, but in a very quiet and peaceful little street. You can go almost everywhere by foot !!! The apartment is very well furbished, so you can easily have breakfast and dinner if you don't want to go out for eating. There are also a lot of nice shops very close to the apartment where you can buy good food if you want to. It was really fantastic. For us, the mattress was a little too hard, but that is a very personal. We will certainly recommend this apartment to our family and friends.
