magic stay in Roma

  • 5 of 5

There are windows with views from every room (and major views from the terrace).

The Living Room/Dining Room looks over the terrace. It is spacious with two sofas, one converts to a bed, and a dining table plus a big TV.

The air-conditioning handled the hottest days we experienced in September. The rest of the time we opened windows. There did not seem to be any security problems and the apartment door has standard massive deadbolts.

Neighborhood: residential, no tourists, never heard anyone speaking anything other than Italian in the quiet neighborhood. We walked to neighborhood restaurants that ran the gamut and were great (much better than the tourist traps downtown)(reservations best on weekends). Supermarket and outdoor markets an easy short walk. We got a little shopping cart to haul the bottles of water and wine home. The only night-time noise we ever heard was an occasional ambulance down on viale Trastevere. You can walk to the Gianicola.

Public Transport: we walked downhill to get the 8 tram on Viale Trastevere to Piazza Venezia or up the stairs next to the building to get the 75 bus to the Colosseo or to Termini Station. We walked down to Trastevere station to meet a friend coming in from Fiumicino and took a taxi back (€ 10-12). There are many other buses there as well. You can take another bus to Pza Argentina and change for buses that go to the Vatican. Coming home it was usually the tram 8 to the Ministry of Education and change to the 75 bus up the hill.

You’ll be so glad when you get back to this oasis of calm with no crowds like Pza Navona or Spagna where they are so thick you cannot even fall down.

Electric: The circuit breaker downstairs trips if you accidentally run too many appliances at once. Short elevator ride downstairs to reset it. But, this place was built and wired before they invented a lot of these appliances. You can run two, but best not to chance three. You learn pretty quick. If they ever find a way, they may upgrade the electrical service.

Ludovica, we cannot say enough about how helpful you were, especially in arranging car service to pick us up and drop us off at airports and train stations. You really helped to make our visit so much fun. Thank you for your many kindnesses.

Would come again, would recommend to family and friends !

Magic penthouse terrace in Roma

  • 5 of 5

Magic stay in Roma ! We wanted a place with a terrace and it is hard to find words to say how special this place is !

We stayed September 16-27th 2015. The owner lives the floor below; his manager, Ludovica, lives a little way away. Ludovica uses Google translate to great advantage. The owner speaks English. Both are runners and can tell you places to go running.

The apartment is wonderful. Very light. It is an older building with a part-time doorman who lives in the building. You take the elevator to the top (Attico) and then walk up one flight to the penthouse.

We are in our 70's and we were grateful that Ludovica who met us at the apt. and the driver that Ludovica arranged could get our luggage up the last flight.

None of the neighbors can see into the terrace. There are beautiful pines all around the back side and a view of the city and mountains (Castelli de Roma) from the front side. Most of the time not sleeping or cooking in the apartment, we spent on the magical terrace. Each hot evening the evening breezes cooled us as we sipped cool frascati and aqua minerale frizzante, and watched the moon, the city lights, and the mountains. There is a dining table under the pergola and another seating area with sofas and lounge chairs.

There a wood fired pizza oven on the terrace ! But, we were too busy visiting ruins and restaurants to try it out. Firewood provided.

The master bedroom has a double bed with an armoire and bedside tables and lamps. The bed was quite comfortable. There is a little balcony with a peek at the dome of St. Peter's.

The Bathroom is dated, but entirely functional with a “telephone shower” over tub with glass doors. The hot water heater was replaced one day while we were staying and makes plenty of hot water for three to shower. We didn't have more people so that's what we can say: we never ran out of hot water ! (I understand they plan a remodel of the bathroom. I hope they do not do it up too modern. If they can just find a way to move the water heater to a more convenient spot, I'd be happy enough.)

The galley Kitchen has utensils, a gas cooktop, microwave, apartment size refrigerator and dishwasher. All worked well. There is a superb clothes washing machine. No oven, (but pizza oven on the terrace). We never missed an oven.

There is a small room which could have a folding cot or serve as a dressing room. It could be a child's bedroom but otherwise a bit too small to be called a bedroom.

There are windows with views from ever

Amazing terrace and location in lovely area

  • 4 of 5

Lovely flat, stunning terrace and great access to the centre. No 75 bus at the back avoids the hill on the way back! We loved the flat, the area and Rome and plan to return soon.

As we were only the 2nd renters a few tips might help for the future:the smaller bedroom is too small for a bed but is great as a dressing room for those sleeping in the sitting room; there is a small lift; the fuses trip if you use the air-con at the same time as the dishwasher which involves a trip over for Ludovica!

Swedish family hade a nice stay in october 2015

  • 4 of 5

Me and my family (two adults and two teenagers) spend one week in this nice apartement and we enjoyed our stay very much. The small bedroom was used as a dressingroom, and we used the bedsofa for two persons. The apartement was good equiped and the terasse was very nice with an fantastic view over Rome. We got a warm welcoming from the hosts and we felt very welcome to stay in the apartement. Very good situated for taking the bus to the city center and near by there was a good foodstore an a nice local restaurang. We can higly recommend this apartement!

Authentisches Wohnen in Rom

  • 4 of 5

Schöne und helle Wohnung mit wunderbarer Terrasse (Blick auf die Stadt).

Verkehrstechnisch gute Lage (Tramlinie 8 in der Nähe) in ruhigem Quartier.

Freundliche Menschen im Haus. Doppelbett mit aussergewöhnlich guter Matratze.

Einzig das Badezimmer benötigt gelegentlich ein Upgrade. Im Ganzen haben wir

uns sehr wohlgefühlt hier. Ludovica danken wir für die perfekte Betreuung.

Kleine Wohnung

  • 3 of 5

Die Wohung hat in der Beschreibung leider einige Fehler. Wir suchten ganz bewusst eine Wohnung mit 3 Schlafzimmern leider hat ein SchlafRaum davon gefehlt. Die Wohnung hat keine 75 qm höchstens 50 mit Terrasse liegt die Wohnung bei 75qm. Das war für uns viel zu klein. Leider waren die Betten auch nicht sehr bequem das Sofabett quietscht und ist nicht sonderlich bequem eher durchgelegen und die Federn drücken. Der kleine Raum besteht aus einem Klappbett welches defekt war und auch niemals zu gebrauchen. Wir waren über die Raumaufteilung sehr enttäuscht wie in der Wohnung 6 Erwachsene schlafen sollen ist mir ein Rätsel. Wir waren 2 Erwachsene und 2 Kinder (16 und 3) Abends ist es leider auch sehr laut das Haus selbst ist still allerdings drumherum gibt es einige Diskoteheken welche bis spät in die Nacht den Bass laufen lassen. Uns ist Nachtruhe sehr wichtig wir haben 2 Wochen kaum geschlafen und leider gab es auch nur defekte Rolläden somit waren wir auch morgends um 7 wieder durch die Sonne fit. Das Bad hat zwar eine Dusche allerdings ist in der Dusche der Boiler montiert somit hat man nur die halbe Dusche zur Verfügung was auch nicht ganz ungefährlich war da die Schläuche aussen liegen und kochend heiss werden ich habe mich 2 Mal schmerzhaft verbrannt. Auch darf man in der Wohnung nicht zuviele Elektrogeräte parallel laufen lassen da sonst die Sicherung rausknallt und der Kasten ist im Keller. Die Küche war winzig der Kühlschrank lief zwar verlor aber Kondenswasser und das Gefrierfach war defekt. Schade bei 35 Grad hätte jeder gerne Mal ein Eis genossen. Der Tv ist rein auf Italienisch was ich in heutiger Zeit nicht nachvollziehen kann. Das WLan war vorhanden wenn auch nicht sehr schnell. Leider war die Wohnung und die Terrasse nicht im gepflegten Zustand diese hat schon bessere Tage gesehen schade da die Location so schön sein könnte mit ein wenig Pflege. Die Terrasse war für uns das schönste diese war wirklich gross und geräumig leider auch nicht schön bepflanzt aber gut darüber kann man hinwegschauen. Der Esstisch könnte erneuert werden. Die Verbindung in die Stadt ist zu Fuss machbar (Berg ab 3 km) allerdings mit Kleinkind ist man auf die Busse angewiesen (700 Meter entfernt oder 70 Treppenstufen zum Bus) Der Kontakt war super, hilfsbereit pünktlich und immer zu erreichen. Für 2 Erwachsene die Nachts nicht Ruhe suchen ist die Wohung perfekt für Familien eher nicht geeignet.

Owner's Response: i'm very sorry that your stay was not very good. it's the first negative comment for us and for our house, unfortunately we were not in Rome to assit our guests as we were on Summer holidays. but in any case the apartment is 75 s.m. and more or less the terrace is the same (75 s.m) and it's always very clean, only with rain there are some leaves on the floor. There are three rooms, a bedroom, a living room with a sofa and another very small bed room for one person. We're renovating the bathroom in the next few months. In any case we hope to have your family again in our apartment and we offer a free week when you want. Best regards roberto
