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.

Perfetta per 4

  • 5 of 5

Appartamento accogliente e ideale per 4 persone. Nonostante fosse un divano letto, risulta comodo. Ottima anche la presenza di wifi. Unica piccola pecca: lontananza dalla fermata metro pari a un 15 minuti a piedi. Personale gentilissimo.

Beautiful sunny apartment in Rome Ostiense

  • 5 of 5

We were welcomed to the apartment by our wonderful host with bottles of wine and olive oil. The apartment is exactly what is shown in the photos and was very clean. The bedroom is large and comfortable with a lot of closet space and a big window. The living room has a very comfortable sofa bed, and the sun streams in the large window mid-morning which I enjoyed while having my coffee sitting on the couch.

Our hosts have a fully-equipped kitchen and we were able to make meals every evening. They provided us directions to nearby grocery stores, restaurants, and the laundromat (all only a couple of blocks away). They emailed us partway through to make sure we had everything we needed and responded very quickly when I had questions about nearby services.

We walked everywhere, but could have easily taken the bus or tram because the Piramide station is only a 7-minute walk away. We took a train from the airport to the Roma Ostiense train station and walked to the apartment.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time in this apartment and the next time I'm in Rome I would love to stay there again. It was very inviting and comfortable and we felt ourselves at home. It is a beautiful base from which to explore Rome. I liked it so much I didn't want to leave!

Thank you to our hosts for a wonderful vacation home!

Super Lage, Super ruhig, super nette Vermieter

  • 5 of 5

Die Wohnung ist sehr hübsch eingerichtet, alles neu und sauber. Die Lage in einem Wohnblock mit Innenhoft ist sehr schön ruhig, trotzdem ist man rasch mit der U-Bahn in der Stadt oder mit dem Regionalzug in Vatikanstadt. Die Kommunikation mit den Vermietern verlief unkompliziert. Wir wurden sehr herzlich empfangen und trafen auf äußerst engagierte und hilfsbereite Vermieter. Gerne wieder.

Ottimo

  • 5 of 5

Ho trascorso due bellissime settimane in una casa accogliente, luminosa e perfettamente rifinita. Non mi è mancato nulla. Vicinanza della metro, varietà infinita di locali per la sera, ottimi negozi per la spesa e, soprattutto, un letto comodissimo e una super doccia: ecco le ragioni di una buona scelta.

Grazie Francesca!!!!

Come a casa

  • 5 of 5

Siamo stati una settimana in questa casa molto accogliente e luminosa. Anche i bambini (1 e 4 anni) erano completamente a loro agio. L'ascensore è stato molto comodo e i proprietari sono stati gentilissimi e hanno messo a disposizione lettino e seggiolone e persino i Lego e altri giochi!

Il palazzo ha il fascino delle case d'epoca e la posizione è molto buona per muoversi con i mezzi di trasporto o anche a piedi e per fare la spesa ci sono molte possibilità a due passi. Anche la scelta di ristoranti, gelaterie e bar nei dintorni è molto grande. Siamo stati contentissimi della vacanza in questa casa. Grazie di tutto a Francesca e Glauco!

A presto Franco & family
