Beautiful apartment in a great neighbourhood

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for two nights with our 3 children (aged 8-14). The apartment was beautiful, spacious, spotlessly clean and well equipped. It was within easy walking distance of the colosseum but the area was calm and quiet which was welcome after a day of sightseeing in the busy centre. There was a butcher, patisserie and fruit/veg shop all within a few metres and everyone was very friendly so shopping was a joy.

Mauro was very helpful and welcoming.

I would definitely stay here again.

Clean and nice - just a bit outside of the city action

  • 4 of 5

Nice place - wish it was closer to the sights, but obviously can’t control that. About 8 euro to the city center so that’s not too bad. A/C in the bedrooms was great. Lots of room in the bathroom area but very small shower. Owners were very helpful giving us guidance, and responded to texts pretty quickly. We were very happy with our visit!

Beautiful and Spacious!

  • 4 of 5

This apartment was beautiful! We loved it from the second we walked in! Very comfortable,Great location, and very clean! Mauro and his daughter Elisa were wonderful! They showed us around the apartment, had maps of the city for us, and also recommended some great places to eat! We loved every minute of our stay.

The only thing I could mention was the hot water in the shower. It would not stay hot. Even the first shower of the day could go quickly from hot to cold. But other than that, we loved it and would stay here again! Thank you Mauro and Elisa :)

A great location and roomy apartment!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay at this apartment. It has a great little bakery across the street for breakfast. It is fun to stand out of the balcony and watch the activity in the street. It takes about 15 minutes to walk to the colosseum and about 5 minutes to walk to the train to get everywhere else. The rooms are all large. Everything you will need is there. Mauro is very helpful and set up transportation for us in each direction from the airport. His daughter met us at the apartment and gave us hints on where to shop and how to get around. She is very sweet and helpful. The beds are very firm. We enjoyed our stay. The time went way too fast.

Beautiful, spacious apartment close to Colosseum and Metro!

  • 5 of 5

Oh, how we loved this apartment! We traveled to Rome from the U.S. with a family of 5 (2 adults, 3 kids), after a stop in Paris, and this apartment was PERFECT. It was in a quaint, safe neighborhood with grocery stores, fruit stand, and restaurants and a bank on the corner, but yet within walking distance of the Colosseum and 4-5 blocks to San Giovanni Metro stop. And the owners were WONDERFUL. Mauro and his lovely wife arranged for a car pick up from the airport (60 euro for the 5 of us, including luggage), and then met us at the apartment to show us around, give us some tips, and get connected to Wifi. They had fruit and pasta and a few other food items in the kitchen (including bottled water chilled in the refrigerator), and even had pre-printed maps of the Rome area with their house clearly marked, to easily be able to find our way back "home." Then one of the sweetest things was that Mauro's wife met us Monday morning to take us to the bank after my husband's ATM card got sucked into the ATM machine (he didn't realize you could click on the little button to switch the translation from Italian to English, and thus, couldn't read the words, "remove your card within 30 seconds" :-)), and she successfully translated & negotiated the return of our card. So sweet of her to do that for us!! The apartment itself is roomy & very high quality. Beds were comfortable, & the view of the neighborhood was so sweet (note you can't really "sit" with chairs on the balcony, but that part did not matter to us - we kept the windows open and just enjoyed the view, including the beautiful flowers hanging off the balcony on front & back). The apartment was as roomy as you would find in the U.S. Oh, and the wifi worked great, on multiple iPads, iPhones, computer, and Roku. BTW, Roku is a great travel accessory to ensure you can watch English language movies (esp for kids). Just make sure your converter has a couple of ports (or bring an extension cord with multiple plug ins), to ensure you can keep tv plugged up, too. BTW, Italy uses the 3-prong converter, but this house had several EU converters as well, so you could use EU plugs here, too. The apartment had a lift that worked great, so you don't have to worry about stairs if you don't want to (on 3rd floor). As you can tell, we LOVED this apartment and the owners, and when we come back to Rome, will definitely stay here again. BTW -we did a bike tour of Rome (Viator booking), & would HIGHLY recommend it!
