Great location

  • 4 of 5

My friend and I had a 2 night stay in this charming flat.


-Location. This is the #1 reason to choose this place. Very conveniently situated with everything you need like restaurants, the Metro subway, a 24-hour mini mart a street over and of course, the Colosseum. For the short time we were in Rome, this was a necessity to have something central.

- The apartment is quite secure. You have to go through the main outer door from the street level, then up a flight of stairs (no elevator), through another set of doors and then finally through the apartment door. All three sets of doors are locked.

-The flat was clean and nicely decorated. We had fresh linens and towels waiting for us. The bed is comfortable.

-Communication with Ms. Jatta via email was very clear and quick.


-Our reception once we landed in Rome could have been warmer. My friend's luggage was lost at the airport for a few hours, delaying our getting to the flat on time. This was out of our control even with that in mind, I did apologize profusely. In dealing with Ms. Jatta on the phone, she could have been more polite and understanding. Instead it added to our stress because she insisted we hurry and get to the apartment. Everything was paid for in full, including the 'late fee' she imposed on us for arriving after a certain hour so after a long flight and having to fight our way into Rome I really think she could have handled the situation differently. Once we arrived to the place, the exchanges were much more pleasant and Ms. Jatta gave us lots of useful information.

-There is a musky smell coming from the apartment. Probably can be fixed with a good airing of the place. Was not a big deal for my friend and I since we were not really in the apartment except to sleep and prepare for the next day's outing.

Overall the place is a great little flat. Suited our needs perfectly. There is no reason to not stay here despite the small problems with communication. The positives far exceed the negatives when it comes to having all you need right in the vicinity of the flat.

This property had the PERFECT location for the neighborhood next to the Colosseum! It's a 1/2 block away from the Colosseum! Plenty of charming restaurants, shops and cafes in this neighborhood... all in walking distance. (not to forget the gelato!) Easy walking distance to the Metro, the Forum and the Via Sacra. Check in was super easy, Alessandra was kind and accessible. The apartment itself was very clean and neat. It was nice to have a small table and couch. The tv had cable, but only one channel was in English. The second floor loft was unique with the see thru floor in the wardrobe area and there was an enormous amount of storage! The bathroom was a good size with a washing machine, a hair-dryer and liquid hand soap for the sink. Only small issue for us was that the second floor has a lower ceiling height - we are over six foot tall and we had to tilt our heads a bit, especially in the shower which has a step up entrance.

One thing we would want to tell any future guests of this property is to make sure you purchase toilet paper, kitchen and bathroom soap and paper towels for your stay - there was one roll of toilet paper when we arrived, thankfully... but we took a walk over to the small supermarket on the next street and purchased the other items.

Thank you for reading this review - we hope you enjoy your stay in this amazing city!

Clean, well furnished, beautiful, safe, great location!

  • 5 of 5

Check in was very easy, it was also very easy to get in touch with Alessandra, who is very kind and a pleasure to work with. The loft is located in sight of the colosseum, very near the metro station with tons of little cafes, restaurants and clubs nearby. There's also a 24 hour supermarket on the next street, and it felt very safe to walk at any time of night. The loft had everything you could need. Wifi, kitchen items, coffee and coffee pot, towels, etc. I have no complaints whatsoever about our stay. I wish I could live there, it was such an adorable property!

Good Location/Bad Smell

  • 2 of 5

The location of the apartment was really nice because it was close to the Colosseum. Other than that there were some major drawbacks to this place. The biggest issue was the sewage smell coming from the bathroom. We emailed while we were there and someone came to try to fix it but the smell remained. I was told we should have called again, but I don't think it's fair to have to constantly ask to have repairs done and have strangers coming in to the apartment during what was supposed to be a relaxing vacation.

Additionally, the ceiling height in the loft was pretty low. I'm 6'2" and I could not stand up when I was upstairs which is where the bedroom and bathroom are. I hit my head a few times.

The walls are also very thin. There were only neighbors one night, but it was really loud in the apartment that night. It sounded like we had other people in the room with us. It's not really renting a single apartment, because a single apartment has really been divided in to 6 small apartments.

Owner's Response: It is the first time tenants are complaining for one of my apartments so I am a bit confused. It is true that the tenant called me regarding the bad smell and right away I sent a plummer to check the situation and solve the problem. Then no more news from the tenant. One day after his departure I receive a mail from the tenant complaining for the smell and pretending to be reimboursed otherwise he would have sent a bad comment. Is it normal to ask for money to avoid a bad comment? Here is his mail: "Alessandra, Now that I am back home and things have settled down slightly, I want to discuss our stay in the apartment. The smell from the bathroom remained the entire time we were there and was really pretty bad and disturbing. For an apartment with great reviews I would not have expected to have to deal with a sewage smell during our entire stay like that. I think we deserve at least a partial refund of the price for having to smell sewage gas for our entire stay. The rest of the apartment was nice, the location was good, and you were very helpful and kind, but I I'm really disappointed with the smell that made it much less comfortable. Please let me know what you can do for us as a reimbursement so we don't have to leave negative reviews. Thanks." Here is my answer: "I am sorry to hear that the smell was so strong. The day after your arrival I have called the plummer that came and fix the problem with muriatic acid, then I didn't hear from you any more so I thought it was ok with the smell. Now new tenants are in the apartment and they did not complain at all. You should have called me again and I would have called the plummer again. Of course I will take into consideration the situation if you come back to Rome and I will do a small discount on the price. Best regards, Alessandra" Here is his last comment to whom I never answered: "Alessandra, I did not want to have to keep emailing about getting our apartment fixed while on vacation. It was supposed to be a relaxing vacation, not something where I am worrying about fixing things and having people come in to our apartment multiple times to get something fixed. We will probably never be able to come back to Rome as this was a once in a lifetime vacation. Without any kind of reimbursement, I will have to leave a negative review."

A Perfect City Apartment

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my Fiancée for 4 nights over Valentines week, and this apartment was everything i expected and more! It was perfectly located for sights such as the Colosseum and the nice night life around that area and it's also well within walking distance to all other major must see sights in Rome.

When we arrived we were met by Daniel who was very friendly he showed us around and left us with the keys, the owner Alessandra was very helpful also and was always able to reach the phone when we needed help with the electric in the apartment.

The apartment itself is very charming, spacious, clean and had every amenity we could have wanted, we only used the kitchen for breakfast every morning as we ate out every night and there are some wonderful restaurants in the area like Li Rioni & Ristorante Naumachia which had the best steak we had ever eaten!

On the whole this was the ideal aparment to stay in and we couldn't have found better, the only problem we had was in the middle of our stay some noisy neighbours joined us across the hall who we had to tell to be quite one early morning but this didn't hinder a beautful holiday in a beautiful city.

Thank you so much to Alessandra & Daniel for all your help during our stay and we will be back! :)

Steve & Sophie.

Loft muy completo situado al lado del Coliseo.

  • 4 of 5

El loft dispone de todo lo necesario para una estancia agradable y comoda. Esta situada al lado del Coliseo y con buen acceso a buses y parada de taxis al lado. La propiedad muy servicial y ayudando en todo momento. Hay restaurantes al lado y un pequeño supermercado. Todo muy bien.
