An excellent place to stay - highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

We booked this apartment for our first time in Rome as a group of four friends (one couple and two singles), so had been looking around for an apartment that had three actual bedrooms, but wasn't too far away.

If you don't want to read the entire review, then let me say straight away, if you're thinking about where to stay, then know that I spent 2 weeks researching different places, and this apartment was easily the right choice for us. The apartment has excellent transport links, is close to many amenities and is a short walk to the city centre. We will be coming back!

The owner was the first to come back to us with pictures, a good price and a clear offer. Throughout the entire booking process he gave us full details and assistance, checking our flight details & arrival times to make sure he would be there to greet us. Communication was excellent.

We stayed for 4 nights. The apartment photos simply haven't done the apartment justice. It is spacious, clean and very pleasant. On our arrival the owner immediately made us welcome. He showed us around the apartment and how things worked, explaining everything in English for us. He gave us a set of instructions, a local map and details of the public transport in the area. The rental was VERY reasonable for such a great apartment.

There were 3 double bedrooms, and one with two single beds, easily sleeping 8 people. The bedrooms were tastefully decorated and the bedding was clean and fresh. Towels and linen were provided and the apartment was clean and welcoming. The kitchen was stocked with crockery, an excellent fridge/freezer and the essential cleaning items. The 2 bathrooms were excellent, with showers in both, making that morning rush for the bathroom non-existant. The apartment had TV amenities (but we spent most of the time sightseeing so didn't use it), and has wireless internet included, which made the map searching very easy. There is a large balcony accessible from two bedrooms, complete with table and chairs which was nice to sit out on in the late evening.

The closest train station is Balduina which is a 400m walk up the road, and it cost us €8 from the Airport (with a change at Trastervere). The 990 bus stops outside the door, a quick 15min journey from nearby the Vatican for €1 each trip. The metro station is a 15min walk away with direct access to the tourist sites & city centre. The Vatican Museum was a 30min walk away. There are many shops, banks and restaurants nearby.

Beautiful and spacious apartment, great location

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 9 (4 adults and 5 children) and found Paolo's apartment to be very comfortable and spacious. The apartment was clean and comfortable. The apartment is in a good location, close to transportation and in a very safe neighborhood. A bus stop is just a short distance from the apartment and the train station is two blocks away, about a 5 min. walk.

Paolo was a terrific host! He was very friendly and spoke English well. He met us at the entrance way and showed us around the apartment. He helped us with direction to public transport and suggested different restaurants and shops around the apartment. He also went above and beyond for our family--we accidentally left our passports in the apartment. Paolo found them and expressed mailed them to us in Germany! We are so grateful for him and his kindness! We would absolutely stay here again.

Thank you for allowing us to stay in your home, Paolo and for being so kind! We had a wonderful stay in Rome ❤️

What a lovely apartment in the heart of a Rome neighborhood! Four ladies travelled from the US prior to a Mediterrean cruise and what a time we had. This apartment is near EVERYTHING! Metro, bakery, market, butcher, gelato, pastries, cafes in all directions. The owner left us a map and we were able to venture out and explore on foot. The apartment itself has 4 nice size bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms plus a lift!! It was nice for everyone to have their own space before the cruise and we took full advantage of relaxing on the balcony each evening. When the Internet wasn't working, the owner promptly took care of the issue.

The Metro right outside the apartment takes you right to all the sites including the Vatican, Spanish Stairs and Trevi Fountain. I could not asked for a nicer apartment nor a better owner who took the time to provide all the details needed to see both the neighborhood and Rome. And let's not forget he arranged our travel from the airport to the apartment and then five days later to the Port flawlessly.

Thanks Paolo!! If ever in Rome again, this will be our home again.

Beautiful apartment and great hosts

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned from a 5 night stay at IPS Home 1. We were a party of 6 - 2 pensioners (luckily there is a lift), 2 adults and 2 kids. We had a fantastic time. Paolo and Ippolita were lovely hosts - really helpful from before we arrived - arranging the taxi, providing lots of information about transport and the local area. Ippolita even gave us a cake on the day we were leaving!

The apartment is huge. 4 very spacious bedrooms with comfortable beds. I was worried that there would be nowhere for us to sit as a group inside but there is a large dining table. The kitchen is well equipped and there is a great balcony. The apartment was spotless.

The area is well served with transport links - a bus right outside the door.There are also a lot of shops and a few good restaurants around.

We would all definitely recommend this as a place to stay.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in the 4-bedroom flat. It was very clean, spacious, and comfortable. There was a nice outdoor balcony where we were able to enjoy dinner and/or a glass of wine that we purchased from the local economy. The flat was located conveniently to public transportation making it very easy to get around. We were just minutes from the Vatican museum, St. Peter's Basilica and the Sistine chapel. Paolo and his family were wonderful hosts! They were so helpful and friendly answering all of our questions and helping us make travel arrangements outside of Rome. They really went out of their way to make things as easy for us as possible. I would highly recommend this rental property and I do plan to stay there again when I have another opportunity to visit Rome.

Simply Superb

  • 5 of 5

We were 2 families and 7 of us including 3 kids coming into Rome as our last stop in our Italy vacation. Throughout we had stayed in apartments and this one easily stands head and shoulders above most of them! Everything the reviews say and much more...!

Clean, welcoming, fresh smelling, spacious with huge bathrooms, lively and tastefully done up....sounds like an advert copy but that's exactly how it is. Located conveniently right opposite a bus stop, it is connected to the Vatican area that in turn leads you to via Del Corso (the fashion street and shopping area), the Piazza Venezia and all the other attractions in understand the bus routes from the ever helpful owner (Paolo) and you are ready to explore Rome without a hassle.

All the other reviews have talked about everything else...but to me the best part is a Gelateria, a few steps away from the flat that easily served the best Gelato we had in Italy. There are a few charming restaurants and out of pure whim and partly tiring of Italian food, we tried a Chinese was jam packed with locals and the food was again brilliant and very reasonably priced for a vast quantity we consumed!!

The only gripe perhaps would be the fact that the flat could do with some air-conditioning in summer, even though it is cool inside if you keep the windows open....but on a weekend there could be a lot of noise from the streets till very late in the night

Overall, I would highly recommend this place... you cant go wrong with the flat and of course with Paolo's efficiency and hospitality!

Located in one of the most prestigious residential areas of Rome, the famous district Balduina, less than 20 minutes' walk from the Vatican Museums, and St. Peter's Basilica. Well connected with the city center with stops just below the house and the bus stop Balduina Station subway which connects with the rest of the city, including the traditional tourist destinations, artistic, historical, archaeological and cultural heritage, is a few minutes' feet.

The neighborhood is one of the most elegant in the city of Rome. You are the best restaurants, pizzerias, ice cream shops and even grocery supermarkets and shops of all kinds. A garage nearby and a sports center.

The apartments are brand new, beautiful and luminous.

We can provide a shuttle service for a fee to and from the airport. The Wi-Fi is free
