Great, and very close to metro.

  • 5 of 5

Nino and his wife were very helpful in all matters. They gave us. Various recommendations and when there was a problem with the wifi they came over to fix it. Apartment worked well for our family and foUr. The biggest plus is that it is super Close to the metro. The one drawback for us was there wasn't any place very close to just hang out and have a glass of wine In a pretty location. We took the metro everywhere. The apartment was clean and had Everything we needed.

Nice clean apartment close to Terminus

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this apartment. The apartment was very clean and well appointed. The location was fine and easy to get to Terminus station. The owner met us and explained the local surroundings and local restaurants. The air conditioning worked well which was nice when the weather warmed up. I'd recommend this unit and it would be especially good for groups or families.

One of the best in Rome!

  • 5 of 5

We went 5 friends to visit Rome for our first time, and one of the best things, was Nino and Josette home. If you wanna go to Rome, you wanna stay in the center, and completely relax and comfortable, their house is the best!

Nino was there to greet us with a Hugh bowl of fruit. The three bedrooms were nicely decorated but no living room, which doesn't matter. Close to everything with just a 10 min walk! metro easy to get around. The area has tons of stores and restaurants. I loved it!!!

Great Stay in Rome

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful place to stay while in Rome. While on a busy street, so near to many things to see, the apartment is in the back of the building, so the only noise comes from neighbors, not the street. The apartment was exceptionally clean and the beds very comfortable. (Not always the case in Italy.) We were able to sleep well, not something that always happens in Rome (several locations where we have stayed in the past have been extremely noisy - it is a busy city...) The kitchen, while small, was extremely well equipped, complete with a dishwasher, another rarity in Rome! We were able to make ample dinner for five and serve it on real plates with real glasses. (We have stayed in places where the dishes are plastic.)

The manager and owner were wonderful and met us on arrival to explain how everything worked and to make restaurant and bakery recommendations. They were extremely helpful. We were even given a bowl of fruit, drinks and slippers - a wonderful touch so we could rest our achy feet after a long day of sightseeing. While the neighborhood may not appear ideal, we never felt unsafe and we even sent our 17 & 14 year olds out alone to the store, several times, and nothing happened. We were all quite safe. I would definitely recommend this place and would even consider staying again myself. The only thing I could think of that may be a problem for some, we are not big people so was not for us, is the shower size. My husband is 6'0, 190 lbs and he was able to shower, but not much room to move. Again, we have had smaller in Rome. The wonderful thing about the shower was that it had plenty of hot water. We had four showers at night and one in the morning, and the hot water never ran out - another rarity in Rome.

Again, I would definitely recommend this place and would stay again. Very clean, comfortable furniture, well maintained and close to two of our favorite Basilicas.
