For a perfect Rome experience

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was lovely in every way. The incredibly large balcony on top floor of the building with both sunny and shady tables offered fantastic views. Interior was very nice, and light everywhere, including a second balcony off the living room. Location could not have been better..... 5 minutes walk to Pantheon, 18 min. to Colosseum. Truly in the heart of Rome. We did not need to take transportation to any of the main sights of Rome. I suggest taking the car from airport that Fabio kindly arranged for us. It is no more expensive than a taxi, and it made coordinating the arrival and meeting with building manager very simple. Full grocery store is 1 block away. Coffee, bar, and trattorias also within one block. Apartment was on quiet small side street, and the noise even from balcony was very minimal.

The building manager could not have been more gracious and helpful. We felt the entire management experience to be very helpful and relaxed. Enjoy some of the incredible dining experiences around Rome, but save at least one evening to dine on the terrace with cheese, bread, pesto, wine, and other locally great items available at market nearby. You will find few better views in Rome from which to enjoy a relaxed evening or breakfast.

Brilliant location, very helpful and accommodating door man who was waiting for us on arrival.

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic area to stay in in Rome, so close to fruit and veg market for some of the freshest food we have ever purchased in Italy, and main bus and tram lines have a stop just on the next block. Property was as seen on the website, had fully equipped kitchen, although no oven ( not an issue for us). The terrace is huge and has open and shaded areas, so you would be able to get out of the sun in the hot months. The lift goes right up to the floor of the apartment and a large supermarket is on the corner of the block. The owner was very responsive to deal with in communicating about the rental and payment and responds promptly and well in English. We did have some issues ( this is Italy and they are old buildings) - with water heating leaks - which were responded to immediately by the door man, and my only small gripe is the shower is very small, while water pressure was good - the water heater kicked in and out so the shower ran warm and cold, then warm and cold.... which was OK for the temperatures in October - but being from a tropical climate - I would struggle with this in colder months. We had a great 8 days in this apartment, for 2 people it had everything we needed. Didn't use the TV or DVD with a view like that. Thank you Fabio and S.. the wonderful doorman.

The location was better then we expected.

  • 5 of 5

All the sites were walkable we never even had to take a taxi. Fabio always quick to answer any of our questions and had great restaurant recommendations.

Pradeep was also very helpful with any questions we had. The apartment has beautiful views, very very safe and everything you really need to cook or east close. We had a wonderful time our third time in Rome.

Our absolute favorite part of this apartment was the large outdoor private terrace!

  • 4 of 5

This apartment was cute and very serviceable. Being there in the summer, we were very grateful for the air conditioning. The private terrace in the evening was priceless. Owners/managers couldn't have been nicer. My only suggestion would be that they need to update living room furniture a bit. Sofas are worn and kind of uncomfortable. We did enjoy our stay very much.

Everything was awesome!

  • 5 of 5

The whole process went very smoothly from beginning to end. Fabio was very responsive to all of our questions and very quick and efficient in all of our dealings. The payment system worked well and our security deposit was refunded promptly just before our departure. Fabio also arranged for cars to take us to and from the airport and all went off without a hitch. As for the apartment, it was very comfortable for the two of us. The views were amazing and better than pictured. All worked well, the bed was comfortable and there were plenty of supplies. The location was perfect for walking to all of the sites. I also have to say that the building supervisor was always available, very nice and personable and was always willing to help. He even taught us to speak a bit of basic Italian with a new phrase each day, which we found a lot of fun. In short, this was a great place, a great experience and highly recommended.

Perfect Rome Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We were so delighted with our stay in this great apartment. The enormous terrace was our favorite place to be in the morning and at night with views all around. It was blazing hot when we were there, so grateful for both the outdoor space and the air conditioning. There were no reviews on VRBO when we booked, so were so happy when we landed and it exceeded expectations. Rooms were bright, comfortable and open, and our kids were fine on the pullout sofa in the living room.

We walked out our door to some of the best attractions Rome had to offer. The building manager was lovely and helpful and we were met by someone on arrival to orient us to the place. Recommend using the driver they offer to set you up with. It was great with two kids in tow to be met at the airport and driven right to the apartment. The Ducati Cafe below has great espresso, pastries and breakfast treats and friendly staff and a steady stream of Italians heading off to work there in the morning.

The only complaint we had was having to pay cash on arrival. They were so great about working with us, I can't downgrade my rating for it, but it is a pain to gather that much cash when you are in transit traveling from country to country and banks won't let you take out more than 380 Euro a day. Exchange rate is crummy if you change thousands of dollars before leaving the US and not fun to cart that much cash around. I think many places in Italy work this way and it was nice not to have to outlay a lot of money before getting there, but would have liked a credit card payment option.

We would recommend this place highly to anyone looking to rent with or without kids in Rome and would go back in a heartbeat. Thank you so much for making our stay so wonderful!
