This was by far the best decision i made for our week long trip to Rome. We traveled to Rome with five people. Three of us including myself are in our upper 20's and we brought along two moms 50 and 60 y/o. The hosts were very good with communication everything was answered within twenty four hours. Before arriving she even offered and set us up with her driver to pick us up from the airport, which we agreed to. The apartments are just as described plus more. The entrance is right next to the Vatican wall. It's in a perfect position to get to and from the Metro, grocery store, The Vatican and St. Peters by foot. The views from the entrance gate to the apartment are breathtaking. You can see so much of Rome and feel like you are officially part of the city. Our apartments (the blue room and fuchsia room) had a common outside sitting area in between the outside the doors which was perfect for relaxing outside after a long day or waiting for someone else in the room to finishing getting ready. At the end of each day we would stop by the local grocery and get fresh cheese, meats, bread and wine (which has amazing prices, most wine was between 3-7 euros) and sit on the patio to relax and unwind from the day. Every morning we were served breakfast in the dining room. It was wonderful. There was always a warm welcome from the hosts mom. Usually they will talk with you about you day and assist you with anything you may need (directions, bookings for tours, restaurant suggestions). The host is also a journalist and writes columns for magazines and newspapers for Rome and travelers so she knows her stuff. We were served coffee, water, milk, and a different orange juice each day. There was always a bread like croissant or toast that was served with their home made jams and marmalade. There is also a lemon tart/cake that the host's mother makes that is to die for. I'll never forget that cake and will definitely be asking for the recipe. They serve everything on their fine china and take note to what you do and do not like. The rooms were as described. it was really nice having a refrigerator in each room and the space you would not get at any hotel. There is also access to the rooftop that has a spectacular view of the city. It was not noisy at all around where we were staying. There are no dumpsters or other hotels next to the location and the neighbors are nuns so it was very quaint. Overall we had an amazing experience and will be coming back. Very recommended
