Great apartment with easy access to central Rome

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was spacious, clean and well equipped in a southern suburb of Rome. Air conditioning was great and much needed!. Directions for arrival by car were supplied and easy to follow. There is easy access by metro or bus into the centre of Rome and all the sites. The apartment was in a nice quiet residential area so you can get more of a feel of real Italy. Supermarkets, market, restaurants and shops near by and sitting out in the small allocated garden area was nice.

I even walked to the Attica road, though recommend taking the bus as no pavement in some areas! It is well worth visiting.I skipped the doing the Colosseum and glad I did with the Attica Road, parks and villas instead.

Martina was extremely helpful and lots of tourist information available in the apartment. Well recommended and if we come back to Rome a repeat stay here will be booked!

Thank you to Martina for her help during our stay.

Good appartment near metro

  • 4 of 5

We stayed a week in this apartment and liked it very much. Basically it is an extension to the house situated in the garden,

There is absolutely no traffic noise in the apartment.

The metro is only a few minutes away and brings you in 10 -15 minutes directly to the city center. Supermarkets are real near on walking distance and there is a daily market.

The apartment is good equipped. Furthermore there are games, etc.

There is hot water all day. The beds for us were a bit hard so we needed to get accustomed to that.

There is a heating schedule but that can easily be changed.

Last but not least: Martina is a good host!

The apartment is very convenient for taking the Metro to the center and tourist areas. Pots, pans, plates, etc. made it easy to cook from scratch or reheat food from the nearby pizzerias/ tavola calda/kebab places (all good) that were indicated in a map on the wall. The cupboards contained some miscellaneous provisions (salt, sugar, pepper, tea, coffee, oil, balsamic vinegar, pasta, rice) which was convenient. There were also tourist brochures, board games, ironing board, etc. The place was clean upon our arrival and we did the cleaning for the rest of our one-month stay, using cleaning supplies in the house. Linens and towels were not hotel-grade but were clean. Hot water was plentiful. Shower stall is the typical European size. The place was reasonable for us (2 people), but the 2nd bedroom is definitely much smaller than the main one. Owners were responsive to our requests if anything was missing or required attention. If they were not in, we just left a note. The winter weather was humid and cold during our visit, and this affected indoor conditions as well. The heating turns on for a few hours in the morning and in the evening, and the timing can be changed upon request. There is a thermostat inside the apartment. We did not use the terrace, but it certainly looks like a wonderful place to hang out in summer. Regardless of the weather, we had a great stay. Rome is always full of interesting things to do, see and eat!

Appartement bien localisé pour visiter Rome

  • 5 of 5

Bon accueil de la propriétaire Martina. L'appartement est situé à 5 minutes de la station de métro Arco di Travertino, il est facile à partir de là de visiter Rome et ses nombreux attraits. Environnement tranquille. Présence d'épicerie, comptoir de fruits et légumes et autres servies à proximité. L'appartement est bien, espace cuisine-salon combiné un peu étroit mais ça va.

This means that you will be able to reach all the important sites in Rome by underground. The apartment is also near some archaeological parks: Parco dell' antica via Latina which contains the tombs of the ancient Roman time, the Caffarella Parks in which you take a pleasant and long walk to the Appia Antica and visit this wonderful archaeological area, and Villa dei Quintili, an important villa of the Roman Empire. In this area there are 3 supermarkets, a typical Roman market, restaurants, and you can do your shopping along via Appia Nuova. Good public transport connections to both airports of Fiumicino and Ciampino are available.
