First, my apologies for such a late review. My New Years resolution is to finally write reviews I've been meaning to write. So here goes:
We stayed here for over a week during our honeymoon. The apartment was just like the photos and the hosts were attentive and answered all our questions promptly during stay. We were walking distance to the Colosseum and many other historic sites, as well as the metro. We didn't cook, but there is a small grocery store nearby so we bought a few items to have on hand. The apartment is in a quiet building on a quiet street with a nice view of an old church. The shower was a bit on the small side, but worked well. Very comfortable bed. Would definitely recommend.
Great location near the Colosseum and Piazza di San Marco - great base for walking or public transport. Owners very friendly and helpful.
Four of us - two adults and two teenagers - stayed for five nights. Victor was very prompt and helpful in answering questions during the booking process.
Emma was waiting for us when we arrived at the apartment. She seemed in a bit of a hurry, but answered our questions and helped us arrange a cab for the next morning's trip to the Vatican as well as a car service to take us to the airport at the end of our stay. There was a laminated map and a list of recommended restaurants for us to use.
There was a small elevator that was helpful in getting the luggage to the third floor. Otherwise, we used the stairs and the balcony entrance during our stay. There is an air conditioner in the bedroom that worked well, but it does not reach the living room. There is a fan in the living room that helped cool things off. The beds were comfortable.
There is one bathroom that you must pass through the bedroom to reach. The shower stall is tiny - probably 1 meter square. The water pressure was not great and the temperature was tricky to regulate. It served our needs, though. I think there was a washing machine but we did not use it. The kitchen was nice. We ate breakfast at the apartment most mornings.
The apartment is in a nice, safe area. There is one small market nearby, a couple of restaurants and a cafe. The Roman Forum is right at the end of the street. That is pretty cool. However, it is fenced in and becomes a large obstacle that you must go around to get to other places.
The area was generally very quiet except for the seagulls. A couple had nested inside the courtyard of the apartment building and would begin screeching around sunrise. We were up early each morning, so they did not interrupt our sleep too much. These things are all over the city and are five times larger and louder than the seagulls that we have in Florida. They are also aggressive and will swoop down and try to steal the gelato right out of your hands!
Overall, the apartment was just as presented in the listing and Victor and Emma were helpful and easy to work with. Therefore, we give it an excellent rating and would recommend it to others visiting Rome.
Nice room, fantastic location. Victor arranged our pick up and drop off at the airport, everything went very smoothly.
Excellent location in the heart of Rome! Located on a safe and quiet road, we loved the area. Walking distance to everything. Nice apartment, very clean. Ema and Victor were great hosts. Thank you!!
Very nice place, great location, very quiet. Emma was very helpful, efficient and punctual. Probably best to get the car: we got the car from the aiport to the apartment, but we decided to get the Metro and bus back to Ciampino. The Metro was fine, but at Termini the busses to Ciampino were full for several hours. Ended up getting a taxi after all. Slightly cheaper than hiring the car, but far less convenient.
Of the local restaurants In Roma did very nice food and the service was great, but found they charged me €1.80 for olive oil for their rather dry bread! The Strozzapreti was fab, though.
PERFECT flat for enjoying Rome!
First, the communication with Victor and Emma was fast, friendly and always helpful and patient.
Victor arranged for a driver to meet our family of 5 at the train station and take us directly to the flat where Emma was waiting for us.
Secondly, the location could NOT be better. From the end of our street, we were able to see the Colosseum, the beautiful Capital building and the Roman Ruins. We could easily walk to all the sites! In front of the capital building we purchased tickets to ride the open air bus (the red one is the best). The bus drove all over the city and each person got headphones to plug in to hear a guided tour in your own language (we got three day passes). The bus stopped at all the big sites including Vatican City.
This was advice from Victor and worked perfectly for us.
The flat itself was very clean and very quiet and is exactly as advertised. The listing looked exactly like the pictures and again was in a perfect and safe location!
The beds were all comfortable and we all were able to sleep well. It was very homey and relaxing. The kitchen had everything you needed to cook.
There was a bottled wine and some snacks waiting for us when we arrived!
Victor and Emma also arranged for our transportation back to the train station!
All of the pictures posted are accurate.
It is a lovely apartment!
I would definitely stay there again.
Thanks again for everything!!!!
