Interaction with guests
I'll be here waiting for the arrival of all my guests. And it will be my pleasure to suggest the places to find the real and traditional roman kitchen. I use to ask to all my guests to ' don't be shy', in fact I'm still a tourist and a globe trotter before than a host: they can contact me ( by the whatsapp contact or anyway by the mobile phone ) during their visit to ask me about every different kinds of informations and suggestions... It will be my pleasure! The bathroom entry is immediately adjacent to you room entry; is private: you will be the only owner of its key! Check in time: 15.00/20.00 Check out time: till 10.00 am
