A Great and Easy Place for Families

  • 5 of 5
Our family (2 adults and 2 girls under age 11) spent a week at this apartment and it was delightful. The place isn't large -- our two girls slept on the pull-out sofa which was very comfortable, and the kitchen and bathroom are a bit small compared to the States -- but it more than met our needs. Two blocks from the Metro, three blocks from the Vatican, and the amazing Trionfale Market with its amazing array of fresh foods, the apartment was perfect for our family. Michela, the owner, met us right on time, and gave us great suggestions for navigating Rome. There is a wash and fold laundry service nearby, as well as several fine restaurants, banks, markets, and gelato shops. We also have a gluten allergy in our family, and the Trionfale Market had a stall with all gluten free foods, which was hugely helpful. Thanks again, Michela!

Great value for money

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for two weeks in October 2013 and found the apartment as advertised. Everything was in working order and Michela gave us a thorough orientation to the apartment and the neighbourhood.
The place is well located, mid-point between two great gelati stands: Old Bridge and Millenium (what, really, is more important?). The apartment is easy to find from the "Cipro" Metro station (about 150m away) which takes you everywhere and conveniently located near grocery stores and the wonderful Trionfale market. All in all, it was excellent value for money.
One thing, though. Rome is a noisy place and even though this apartment is in a relatively quiet neighbourhood (the Vatican is two streets away) on an elevated floor facing the courtyard (not the street), it does taking some getting used to. Otherwise, highly recommended.

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5
My daughter and I stayed in this lovely apartment for 10 days while in Rome celebrating her college graduation. It was perfect! Very close to the Cipro Metro station ( 2 minutes) for "old Rome" sights and walking distance to all things Vatican....St. Peters, Vatican Museum, etc. The restaurants nearby were great and the gelato on the corner was excellent. The closest public ATM ( Bancomat) was down near the Ottaviano Metro station, an easy walk. It was quiet which was welcome after a busy day sightseeing. We were up one flight of stairs, but the lift was available for baggage if you needed it. Michela had some travel guides which came in handy as we headed to Florence for a day. She was a perfect host meeting us on time when we arrived and assisting with our taxi arrangements for departure. I highly recommend this clean, tidy, comfortable apartment which was exactly as described.

Disappointing

  • 2 of 5
Apartment was very disappointing.
Upon arrival there was no toilet paper in the house, no soap to clean up.
The microwave oven did not work and was smoking. The electric tea kettle was defective and could not make a cup of tea.
WIFI did not work
Dishes and silverware were an accumulation of flea market items. The entire apartment needs a good updating. Cabinets were poor and bathroom too small. Owners need to spend a few euros on improvements
Good points: good bed and good location

Owner's Response: Kettle and microwave have been changed as soon as I read the review.
I am very sorry for the soap and toilet paper, I hope it will never happen again.
Internet wi-fi has been working before and after your arrival as all my other guests told me and I tried it personally so I don't know why it did not work with you.
But, remember that on the arrival day I Always ask my guests to contact me while they are in my apartment if something is not working so i may fix it on time.
I am so sorry you did not.
Regards, Michela

Nice!

  • 4 of 5
My friend and I rented this apartment for eight days in May, 2013. Michela was very nice. She met us at the arranged time, checked us in, and gave us a thorough tour of the apartment along with information about the neighborhood. We loved being within close walking distance to the Vatican, the Cipro Metro terminal, restaurants, markets, etc. The neighborhood was safe. The courtyard was secure and very nice with its flowers and fruit trees. The apartment was clean and very comfortable for the two of us. We had no trouble with the wi-fi and there was a basket of us/euro power converters for us to use. The kitchen was small, but adequately stocked with dishes, etc. The bathroom was nice. The shower stall was small and we had to space the showers apart so that we both would have hot water, but it wasn't a problem for us. The bed was very comfortable and there were plenty of pillows and blankets. We were fortunate to have cooler weather, so we had the windows open most of the time and never used the AC. We loved our stay at this apartment and would recommend it to anyone.

Comfortable, convenient apartment for a brief stay in Rome.

  • 4 of 5
The apartment is pretty much as described by the owner. The bed was very comfortable--my husband loved it and slept very well. The location is very convenient for to Vatican City and to the metro, buses were a little more challenging but even they could work. There were a few small maintenance issues--a door handle that kept falling apart, a ceiling light that didn't work but they didn't stop us from relaxing and we let the owner know about them when we left so hopefully they are fixed. The apartment, like most in Italy, could use a few more simple amentities--paper towels, salt, pepper, so short term renters don't have to buy them. On the other hand, Michela quickly got us an ice cube tray and coffee filtes and was very responsive when we asked for information about Rome. This is a good, moderate cost apartment. And we felt very safe in both the neighborhood and apartment. We stayed in Rome for 10 days and the apartment made a good home for us.
