Beautiful apartment!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very well decorated, and we absolutely loved the host, Francesca, who made our welcome very special. You can tell that she puts a lot of effort into making this a great place to stay. The location is wonderful as it is only a few metro stops from most of the major tourist attractions, and yet it is far enough away that you see real-life Italian life styles and restaurants. I would highly recommend this location to any visitors.

Fantastic, couldn't have chosen a better place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Don't be fooled by the exterior of this apartment, we were worried when we first walked up but once we met the amazing owner Francesca and saw the apartment we were thrilled! The apartment is huge, clean, has all the amenities you could possibly need and then some. Francesca was an absolute sweetheart, she had a chilled bottle of wine ready for us upon arrival, even offered to meet us at the train and bring us to the place. She was so nice and made us feel at home, gave us so much info on Rome and things to do, provided maps and information booklets, told us which buses to take, the best places to eat, where to do laundry and the list goes on. She made herself available at all times if we needed anything or had questions and checked in via WhatsApp every day to make sure we were okay. Her daughters even left us a hand drawn picture to welcome us. The area is outside the tourist areas which is nice but the major attractions were easily reached by the bus stop near by. Its where the locals live and eat so it wasn't crazy busy, the food was phenominal and prices were cheap! We would stay here again forsure and only wished qe had booked more nights in this home away from home in beautiful Rome. Thankyou so much Francesca, you made our trip extra special xxx

Very pleasant.

  • 5 of 5

Francesca, the owner was very helpful and kind. She even waited for us at the metro station. She explained how to use everything when we first arrived. The apartment was comfortable, clean and efficient.

Easy access to metro, buses and restaurants. We were able to tour in the morning, have lunch, pause for a siesta then tour in the late afternoon.

We had peace of mind knowing that if we needed anything in that big city we had a helping hand in Francesca.

I will recommend to my friends and family.

Straordinaria, eccellente!

  • 5 of 5

Non possiamo soprassedere sulla straordinaria disponibilità di Francesca dal momento della prenotazione fino al check out. Ci ha letteralmente accompagnati momento per momento senza essere minimamente invadente. Una persona entusiasta che ama ciò che fa. Potremmo dire "una amica". I servizi offerti superano di gran lunga la spesa e i comfort che si trovano nella casa. La zona di Roma è molto bella e simbolica e al tempo stesso piacevolmente popolare. Vicina ai servizi, ai mezzi pubblici e a negozi. La raccomanderei, anzi la raccomando vivamente a tutti.

Trésor bon rapport qualité/prix.

  • 4 of 5

Trés beau logement. Refait à neuf avec goût et bien équipé. Accueil formidable. La personne nous a attendu malgré notre retard de plus de deux heures, nous avions un petit présent qui nous attendait et elle a pris le temps de nous donner un certain nombre de conseil pour les visites, la nourriture et pas seulement "tout est notė dans le book". Le quartier n est certes pas au coeur de la cité mais il a l'avantage d être italien et non 100% touristique.

En résumė, nous le recommandons vivement.
