We had an amazing stay in Rome!!! From the moment we inquired about the flat, Silvia was a gracious hostess. She answered many questions, and went out of her way to make us feel like friends not renters. She kept in touch with us, and gave us all the information we would need to have a lovely stay as well as being quick to respond to any e-mails. I would HIGHLY recommend her.

The flat is EXACTLY as surprises. Clean and ready for you when you arrive. We are a family of 5 and we each had a very comfortable bed to sleep on, two bathrooms both with showers made our stay so much easier as no one had to fight or wait in line. The kitchen is stocked with everything you might need to cook with and the grocery is just a short walk away...and if you look in the closet you'll even find carts to make your shopping trip easier. My favorite things were the good WiFi, the elevator lift and the washer and dryer. Having just come off a cruise ship it was wonderful to not have to haul 5 bags up the stairs and then getting all the clothes cleaned while catching up on the news was a bonus for us.

The location of the flat is perfect. Just a few minutes walking puts you at the Vatican museum, St. Peter's Basilica, or at any of the amazing restaurants in the area. If you are more adventurous you can walk 30-45 minutes and be in the ancient area of Rome. Or take the brief walk to the metro station and get anywhere you'd like in a short time. The metro is easy to understand and the cost is minimal. When you arrive at the flat you will find a black book with everything you need to know about finding the grocery, metro, restaurants etc. There is also a shelf that has some guide books and maps for you to use and return....Silvia leaves nothing left to ask.

Rome has layers upon layers of things to discover and this flat puts you right in the heart of easily getting to all of it. Our children had such a wonderful time and felt so comfortable that they are asking to go back to visit "Silvia's House" again next year....and that is a VERY strong recommendation :)

Owner's Response: First of all: thank you so much for your very beautiful review! Second: I had to laugh imagining your kids talking about "Silvia's House" :))) It's great that you consider their opinion as a VERY stron recommendation. It goes like that by us too: when our 2 "bosses" (our daughter and son) love something, we consider it good as well. You will be super welcome any time again!

Like Living in Rome

  • 5 of 5

We loved this apartment because it was located in a residential area of Rome without a lot of tourists. However, it was about two blocks from the ticket entrance to the Vatican which was really convenient. Huge apartment, well stocked kitchen, nice up to date bathrooms and a washer and dryer for tired travel clothes. This apartment exceeded our expectations! Thank you Silvia!!

We walked and walked but also took a cab across town to the Colosseum and Roman Forum for about $14 euros which we thought was cheap. We recommend it over the buses that are pretty crowded. We had a great time!

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

The flat was very clean, close to the metro and a nice respite from the Hussle and bustle of Rome.

I loved staying here. It had everything our group of 4 needed. Much, much better than staying in a hotel.

Our hostess was very accommodating to our needs. If I am ever in Rome again, this is where I will stay!

Great Stay

  • 4 of 5

Let me first say that our host Silvia was fantastic. Not only was the apartment a large, open, clean space, Silvia was able to to arraign transportation from and to the airport. The neighborhood is safe which was important for my family. The location is also very practical as it is close to the Vatican, Metro, supermarket (Simply), and several restaurants. Overall an enjoyable experience for me and the family.

Thank you Silvia.

Perfect location, clean and spacious!

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with our stay in this apartment! The location is easy walking distance to Saint Peter's Square and the Vatican Museums, as well as transit lines to explore other areas of Rome. The apartment itself was beautifully kept - clean, well-maintained, and had all the amenities you could hope for. Sylvia is a wonderful hostess - she provided coffee for her coffee maker so that each morning we could get an early jump on the day. There was even a binder with information about the location for grocery stores (as well as local pizzeria's, and such) .WIFI signal was great. Very secure site, too. We would definitely stay here again if we make it back to Rome some day.
