My stay at Stella's House was exactly what I wanted it to be. The building itself was traditional with shuttered windows, enormous carved wooden entry door, high ceilings, an old-fashioned pull-door elevator, stone floors and staircase etc. It has a fantastic location, being only a 10 minute walk to Roma Termini, the hub of transport in Rome, and within walking distance to many bus routes, cafes, shops and attractions including Trevi Fountain and Spanish Steps. Stella's House itself occupies half of the 2nd floor and features include 4 guest rooms and a lovely terrace. Perhaps the priceless quality there is the homely atmosphere, which isn't surprising as it is indeed Stella's home. There was a slight problem with language (which only added to the authentic experience) but Stella is more like a mother /friend than a business owner. She was happy to help in any way she could and very appreciative of small gestures. If someone is after accommodation with all of the modern conveniences then Stella's House isn't for you (but it does have all you need)... however, if you want to feel welcome in Italy and 'live like an Italian' then I can't recommend Stella's House highly enough.
