Un jardin dans Rome
Nous avons choisi cet appartement dans Rome pour son jardin, (préférable quand vous avez des enfants de 8 et 11 ans et que vous avez vous même une grande maison). Nous n'avons pas été déçu et ce que nous avons eu correspond à la description du site. Seul le cèdre bleu planté au milieu du jardin a disparu. Le propriétaire (que nous n'avons pas rencontré) semble très réactif et soucieux du confort de ses occupants. Le quartier se trouve derrière le Vatican et vous pouvez descendre dans le vieux Rome soit en bus, soit en voiture puis ensuite marcher ou utiliser les transports en commun. Il n'y a pas de parking privé mais on trouve facilement des places pour se garer le soir et c'est gratuit, y compris la journée (pas comme en France). Pour les courses il y a tout à proximité. Sur l'appartement proprement dit, rien à dire. Le WIFI fonctionne très bien, le jardin nous a permis de manger matin et soir dehors ... ce qui est bien agréable. Il manque juste un grille pain pour le matin et la douche fuit un peu. A part cela, par rapport aux nombreuses autres locations en ville cet appartement avec jardin sort vraiment du lot et est à recommander fortement d'autant plus que les tarifs sont très raisonnables. Que demander de plus ? Famille GREGOIRE

Bon rapport qualité prix
Je n'ai pas digéré le surcout de 25€ que l'on nous a demandé dès notre arrivée a 20h30. Nous avions pourtant appelé 3h avant et prévenu de notre arrivée tardive. Ils ne doivent plus habiter dans l'immeuble comme indiqué dans le descriptif. Ils facturent donc (sans facture) l'arrivée supérieure a 20h ! Pas de conseil particuliers en arrivant, on nous conseille de lire les brochures sur le bureau. Celles ci sont d'ailleurs plutôt bien faite. Il y a une grande chambre et un séjour avec un canapé qui se découpe en deux petits lits. Le jardin est super même si au petit déjeuner en extérieur on a l'impression de déjeuner au bord d'une autoroute, vu le roulage du matin. On a aussi tenté le repas à midi mais trop chaud au mois d'août.L'appartement est spacieux propre et bien équipé. Nous avons utilisé la voiture pour aller au Vatican, super facile pour trouver des places dans les rues derrière.

Dear guest, thanks for your review! it's very important for us. Just to be clear I want to respond to something... The late check-in fare of 25€ is due for arrival after 20:00. It is clearly written in term and condition of our listing and we did not communicate this only three hours before, we just reminded this to you bacuse only three hours before you communicated your late arrival. We live in the same building, but as normal people, in August we use to go on holidays... and when we are not there we have some people who take care of our guests. We asked to you if some information were necessary to arrive, but we did not receive answers. Thus we only supposed that arriving by car you were equipped with a navigator... Rome is a big City, with many cars, we are in the center and not in the sorrounding, so it is normal to hear in the garden some traffic noises... we cannot do anithing for this, is also normal that in August to have lunch outside could be very hot... the best is to have brakfast and dinner in the garden. Is a pity that you used the car. The three bus lines available at 50 meters go to the hearth of the center in few minutes and are very frequent. We hope to can host you again in the future!

Great Stay
Close to public transportation, three different bus lines at the bus stop very close to the apartment. Appreciated that the area was not touristy, which gives you a feel for an authentic Roman way of life. There is several good restaurants nearby which is very handy. The pizzeria just across the street offers take away which comes very handy when you return from a long day downtown. Also across the street is a supermarket with most things you will need during your stay. The wifi in the apartment worked flawlessly, used skype and other services without any problems. The fact that the host lives just upstairs from the apartment is also very good. I would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone staying in Rome.

A nice few days in the heart of Rome
It was last march when we arived to Casababa, in the middle of the pope election days. This was the only quiet segment of the city. Beautiful garden, nice rooms, pleasant hosts, affordable price - this is Casa Baba

Perfect fit!
Really enjoyed our stay here. All amenities close by so we had the choice to stay local if we wanted to. Thank you so much for meeting all our needs in the apartment. The wifi was especially helpful for our 2 teenage sons.

Wonderful Roma
Casa Baba is well placed to enjoy everything about Rome while returning to a residential area for the night. Viale Medaglie d'Oro is a main route into the centre of Rome and Casa Baba is close to bus stops, supermarket etc. As a couple the flat was ideal for us although it can sleep more. The garden area was lovely for sitting outdoors of an evening if we were back early. All in all a great success. Thank you Francesco for all your helpful info - we had a great stay.

a beautiful stay
We spent a beautiful time in Casa Baba in august 2012. The apartement is well and comfortably equiped, you have all you need there, with a bonus of spacious garden to spend nice evenings outside. Restaurants and shops are near in a walking distance. Very well located, with a good bus connection to city center. The owner is very kind and helpful. We really enjoyed it there and would choose it for our future stay in Rome again.

Una suite davvero carina al centro di Roma - A very nice suite i
Un appartamento dotato di cucina, bagno, soggiorno e camera da letto davvero molto confortevole. Dotato di tutti i comfort ci ha permesso di sentirci a casa durante il nostro soggiorno. Si trova in una zona di Roma molto ben servita e in vicinanza di supermercati e servizi vari, a circa 10 minuti da San Pietro. A disposizione dell'appartamento c'è un bellissimo giardino con una piccola area attrezzata con tavolo e sedie. I giovani proprietari sono molto disponibili. Con i tanti spazi per organizzare vestiti e bagagli, si tratta di una soluzione molto comoda per famiglie, anche con bambini piccoli. Sul viale in cui si trova la casa passano diverse linee di bus ma la più vicina fermata metro dista circa 5 minuti di autobus. An apartment with kitchen, bathroom, living room and bedroom very comfortable. Equipped with all the comforts allowed us to feel at home during our stay. It is located in an area of ??Rome very well served and in close proximity to supermarkets and other services, about 10 minutes from St. Peter. A layout of the apartment there is a beautiful garden with a small area with table and chairs. The young owners are very helpful. With plenty of space to organize clothes and luggage, it is a very comfortable solution for families with small children. On the avenue where is the house pass different bus lines but the nearest metro station is about 5 minutes by bus.
