Tucked away on a quiet street just minutes by foot from the bustling Ostiense Train Station and Piramide Metro (B) Stop, the AP44 San Saba vacation rental by ROMAC can accommodate up to 12 guests in 5 bedrooms and 3 baths. Rates vary by the number of guests and start at just €210 per night.
The home is flooded with natural light and loaded with terraces and outdoor space, the largest of which features a table big enough for home cooked family and friend dinners al fresco. Our San Saba vacation rental is the perfect spot for one of our Chef@Home dinners.
Now we’ve renovated the interiors with new bedroom, living room, and dining room furniture, a fresh coat of paint and decorative wall coverings, and design lights to illuminate the home throughout.
Enter into a world of design and sophistication
Take a tour with us through the newly revamped San Saba vacation rental by ROMAC.
The San Saba vacation rental is located on the first floor above ground level (not accessible by elevator) in a modern building amidst a quiet, residential neighborhood.
The entrance opens into an entry vestibule, connecting 4 of the 5 bedrooms, one of the baths, the kitchen and the living room.
The first two bedrooms are triples, with a full size bed plus a single bed in each room. Light pours into the bedrooms as they also open up onto a private balcony. The second of these bedrooms has a full ensuite bath, a second bath and also connects to the fifth bedroom that’s not accessible from the entrance vestibule. This fifth bedroom features two single beds. The entire small suite is perfect for a family with children who can close the door and have privacy to themselves.
The third bedroom off the entry vestibule is another triple room with a full size bed and a single bed. This room opens directly onto the large terrace.
The final bedroom off the entry is the smallest with bunk beds, an ideal solution for children and adults alike.
All of the bedrooms have new furniture and feature updated design elements like modern light fixtures, chairs and desks, and fine decorative wall paper.
The Living Room
The newly renovated living room is the heart of the indoor communal space, featuring plush sofas and decorative cushions for a comfortable day or night in. Watch your favorite films or TV shows with online streaming on the smart TV, or cosy up on the couch with a good book and a pot of tea.
The kitchen features all the modern conveniences of home, including a convection oven, 4-burner stove and full-size refrigerator. The home is also equipped with a microwave and dishwasher.
As is typical in many Roman homes, the washing machine is also located in the kitchen.
A small counter and stools in the kitchen allows for informal breakfasts or places to snack and convene while cooking dinner.
One of the best features of the San Saba vacation rental is the ample outdoor space. Four of the five bedrooms opens onto a balcony, two open directly onto the large private terrace.
The terrace is furnished with plenty of outdoor seating, including a large table that’s perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner in the spring, summer or fall. Rome’s winters are also mild which make outdoor space useful even on the shortest days of the year.
What to do, see and eat around San Saba
Located just 400 meters away from the Piramide metro (B) stop and Ostiense train station means the location is very well connected to getting around Rome. But if you’re looking for things to do and places to eat in the area, here are a few of our suggestions:
Pyramid of Cestius + the Wall Museum
The Pyramid of Cestius was built between 18-12 BC (making it older than the Colosseum) as a tomb for Gaius Cestius, a magistrate in Rome. No one could be buried within the walls of Rome, which is why tombs and monuments lined the major roads leading into the ancient city of Rome, just outside the city walls.
The interior of the pyramid is decorated with frescoes. It is possible to visit inside but only through reserved guided visits and very limited times.
For more information, check out our post on visiting the Piramid of Cestius and the Wall Museum.
Centrale Montemartini Museum
The Centrale Montemartini Museum boasts ancient Roman statuary and sarcophagi contrasted against the site of an old electricity plant. The permanent collection features a wide range of marble busts, statues and ancient Roman artifacts as well as ancient Roman burial coffins.

For a more traditional Italian environment, Trattoria Pennestri serves up Italian dishes with a personal touch from Danish-Italian chef Tommaso Pennestri in his neo-trattoria. Their extensive Italian wine list is a good match to the fresh pastas and interpreted Roman dishes.

For warm days when you just want to sit outside for a coffee or cocktail, the Tram Bar is where travelers and locals alike can hang out. The entire place is outside (so on cold and rainy days, expect to find it closed), but the bar itself is located inside a retrofitted tram car.
