Fantastic apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was well decorated extremely clean and centrally located in Rome. The supermarket was around the corner. Massimo was very helpful. His wife thought of everything anyone would need in the beautiful bathrooms and kitchen. I was in charge of picking an apartment and my family traveling companions loved it. I highly recommend it.

The Best Apartment You Can Get While In Rome

  • 5 of 5

We were so thrilled with the apartment! The location was excellent. We were close enough to walk to the Colosseum and there is a lovely little park along the way, somewhat like a smaller version of NY's Central Park, great for a jog to start each day or a place to have a romantic quiet moment with wine and picnic. Massimo and his family have taken tremendous extra steps to make the apartment stylish, clean and comfortable. We've never had such a comfortable bed when staying away from home. The bedding and bathroom linens were exquisite. We had quiet, restful sleeps each night. The kitchen and bathrooms are completely redone and perfectly outfitted with everything and more we needed. As far as a host, you couldn't ask for more. All our questions were answered prior to the trip very quickly and once we arrived, Massimo and his beautiful daughter were at the apartment to meet us and give us a complete overview of the apartment and everything around the neighborhood. When we needed a taxi at 4am for our return flight, Massimo totally arranged for us and even had the driver text us the night before to put out minds at ease. When we rushed out so fast we left behind something, Massimo took care of that too. We are pretty picky and like the comforts of home when traveling as well as elegance and convenience....this apartment delivered it all. I can't say enough good things about it. There was even an umbrella by the door for the day we needed it. Every single thing has been provided and done so in such a tasteful and stylish way. Bravo to Massimo and his family. If we are back in Rome, we will schedule our trip around the apartment's availability!!!!

Gorgeous apartment near the centre of Rome

  • 5 of 5

I now find writing excellent reviews difficult as it means your precious gem will be harder to book again! Howvere, when you have wonderful hosts who go out of their way to make your stay special you must reflect that.

The photos do not go the apartment justice it is spacious with high ceilings and big windows in every room.

The apartment is so clean and every eventuality has been thought about. Our host booked our taxi both ways to the airport and greeted us upon arrival and even phone the local restaurant to make sure they would serve us food and then walked us to the restaurant.

The area is typically Roman , with shops cafes and bars to cater for every taste.

The 15 minute walk to the Collesueum was a lovely walk. The bus into the centre of town was also typical and sporadic. We did not use the metro but I think that is much more reliable but not as scenic.

We had 27 degree heat in October so our stay was not what we expected but the apartment was cool.

As a frequent traveller to Rome I will definately be booking again

Very nice apartment, not too far from the Coleseo.

  • 5 of 5

When you first arrive, the outside of the building is in need of renovation. Honestly, made us a little nervous. Once you get in the apartment things change. The owner has done a wonderful job renovating and updating, making the apartment comfortable for visitors. The washer and dryer are an added bonus. There are a few local restaurants nearby that are very good. Massimo and his wife are very gracious hosts. I would stay here again if returning to Rome

The best in Rome!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Melinda was a wonderful home away from home for our family of 5. Massimo and his wife were very accommodating and helpful from start to finish and made our experience at Casa Melinda very pleasurable! On our arrival Massimo and his wife welcomed us with cold drinks and Roman pizza with mortadella! The apartment was wonderful, very spacious, clean, we'll appointed and comfortable to come back to after a long day of sightseeing. The bathrooms were very clean, modern and stocked with fluffy towels, robes and hair dryers. The kitchen was also great, everything you would need on a day to day basis was available. The bedrooms were a good size with ample closet space. It is a short walk to the Colosseum and subway. You will find many markets and bakeries just outside the front doors of Casa Melinda, which was very helpful! Overall, Casa Melinda was a great choice for our stay in Rome. We will definitely be back! Thank you Massimo and Marilena!

“An oasis of peace in a busy city”

  • 5 of 5

In addition to my husband, we traveled with another couple and wanted a place that would offer a good deal of privacy as well as tranquility. Casa Vacanza Melinda was the perfect place. Set back in a court yard, the normal street traffic could not be heard from the two bedrooms, allowing for a good night's sleep. Both bathrooms were nicely updated and we were delighted to have not only a washing machine, but a clothes dryer as well. We were able to walk to several points of interest from the apartment. And the internet access was flawless.Best of all, Massimo and his wife had prepared the apartment to be welcoming in every way. It was immaculate, well stocked and supplied and the basket of goodies left in the kitchen was very much appreciated. Massimo was always most pleasant and able to answer our questions. This is a find among the many offers in Rome. One of the nicest vacation rentals we have had within any city environment.
