This modern and well equipped apartment is available to rent on Via Ostiense, in the neighbourhood of the same name. The apartment is all new and completely contemporary, and comes completely furnished and ready for you to move in. Each of the rooms are very large, and the kitchen is very spacious also, and doubles as the main communal space of the apartment. Big, bright windows, comfortable furnishings and roomy storage will make this a very comfortable home as soon as you move in.
Ostiense is a home for anybody. From here you're within a short walk of Roma Tre University, and an easy Metro journey to University Sapienza. Professionals have multiple transport options to take them to their work anywhere in the city too. And the local area is full of amenities, including an excellent selection of restaurants.

* We love the desk in bedroom 1, made out of a single giant piece of wood. It's gorgeous!
* The kitchen is really well equipped, spacious and spotless.
* Although not in the historical centre of Rome you can still play tourist here. Theres an 1800 year old city gate, Porta San Paolo just down the road, as well as a Pyramid built by an emperor jealous of Egyptian architecture.

Your up-and-coming place to be
Ostiense is figuratively emerging from the water.
In 5 years, this will be *the* place to spend your Saturday night. You could say it’s making waves.
Ostiense was once an industrial area, which is the recipe for the new cool. It’s what we look for in an up-and-coming neighbourhood.
If you want to be ahead of the in-crowd, you know where to come.
**What can I do here?**
Ostiense fights convention.
Here, an old gas holder can be a tourist attraction. No kidding – it has 90 reviews on Google. That’s more than most restaurants.
The local cuisine is definitely worth sampling, though. The no-frills presentation means the key ingredient is flavour … of the delicious variety.
Don’t expect polite table service or polished cutlery, though. But that’s the intrigue of an area full of liberal thinkers – you never know what to expect.
If you want a stylish place to grab a drink and good grub, go to Doppiozeroo. We hear they have great food and cocktails. At happy hour (every day from 18:00 to 21:00) it’s €10 per cocktail, with a buffet included.
On top of all that, the city centre is a short train ride away.
Garbatella was a well-known Communist area in the 1970s. Comradery.
