Beautiful, well maintained, well managed studio apartment in great location.

  • 5 of 5

This lovely studio is perfect for tourists and FAO staff alike (10 minute walk to the office). Very quiet and well located near good restaurants, cafe, deli and public transportation. Paola is very quick to respond to even the most minor of queries. I will stay here again when I can.

Nice and cozy

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I spent 4 nights in this nice and cozy apartment.

Lots of information was provided, so we didn‘t have to search the map too much.

Very clean, well maintained, close to Metro station,

We would go back there if the chance arise.

You will not regret renting from Paola. The apartment is in a quiet neighbor hood which was so nice to come back too after a day of site seeing and jostling people.

You can walk to major sites or take public transportation that is located close by.

Paola was so helpful and accommodating, she goes the extra mile to make sure your experience is the best it could be.

Très bel appartement proche des sites à visiter

  • 5 of 5

Casa della Robbia est un appartement spacieux et lumineux, calme et confortable. La cuisine est bien équipée en électro ménager, il est très bien entretenu.

Proche des commerces, des restaurants et du marché couvert.

A proximité des transports en commun : bus, métro, taxi

Nous y avons passé un excellent séjour et les propriétaires sont accueillants, disponibles et charmants.

Une semaine de plaisir

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons logé une semaine dans cet appartement lumineux, parfaitement équipé, où se trouve tout ce dont on peut avoir besoin. Il est situé dans un quartier à peine excentré, sans marchand de cartes postales mais avec suffisamment de restaurants pour diner tous les soirs dans une véritable ambiance italienne. On rejoint facilement Trastevere à pieds et le métro, à cinq minutes, vous amène à tous les endroits stratégiques de Rome. Un dernier mot pour dire la gentillesse de Paola, dont l'unique souci est que vous soyez satisfait. C'est donc une offre, à tous égards, exceptionnelle!

We stayed one week in that bright, well-equipped flat in which everything you may need is available. It is located not very far from the centre, with no postcards stands around and close to a few restaurants where you can have dinner in a true Italian atmosphere. Trastevere can easily be reached on foot and the underground which is five minutes walking takes you to all the important sights in Roma. Last but not least, Paola's concern is to make you fully satisfied. So it is an exceptional offer in all respects!

(already sent on sunday, march the 6th)

All the best to you and to your magic country. Take care! : ) Paola

Wonderful Apartment and Lovely Owner

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I completely enjoyed our stay at the Casa della Robbia. Paola, the lovely owner, had appointed the apartment with everything we needed to make our stay comfortable, cozy, and inviting. We felt very much at home when we returned to the apartment at the end of our far-ranging excursions into the magic and history of Rome.

The location is wonderful. We had easy access to the Rome Metro, trams and buses to take us anywhere and everywhere in the city. Barberini's, around the corner, has wonderful pastries, cappuccinos, and espressos. Volpetta's, just beside Barberini's, offered wonderful cheeses, meats, vegetable dishes, and desserts. We visited the Testaccio Marketplace just a few blocks away to find fresh vegetables, fruits, and breads. We could not have asked for a better apartment in a better location for our visit to Rome.

We highly recommend the apartment to anyone looking for a home away from home!
