Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Andrea,



First I would like to offer my apologies for not getting this letter to you sooner. We arrived back in the USA very late night, and with three children still at home, we had a lot of work to do unpacking and catching up here in the USA.



We enjoyed our time in Italy so very much that we can honestly say we were not quite ready to come home. Usually on a trip we have fun, but are more than ready to get back to our life in Texas. Your apartment was perfect for our family. We felt safe there, with the entry into the complex requiring a key in addition the apartment key. We liked the shutters to darken the place; it made it easier to adjust to the time change. The size was perfect and the apartment had all the amenities needed to relax when we were not out seeing the amazing sights of Rome. The location is great with about a ten minute walk to St. Peter’s.



The apartment was clean and ready for our arrival. The views were great, especially from one of the bedroom balconies and the kitchen; we have many beautiful pictures of the dome of Saint Peter’s.



We stayed in Rome for almost three weeks, going out to eat is expensive, so it was nice to be able to have a simple breakfast and dinner in the apartment and to go out at lunch only. We also were able to do our laundry while there, so you don’t have to lug as many items.



We offer our cell phone number if someone would like to contact us directly, we can also recommend items that would be helpful to bring. 214-870-9843







Warm regards,

Rome apartment

  • 1 of 5

Hi, I recently stayed in this apartment in Rome, 12-15th March 2015 and had a wonderful time in Rome despite the condition of the apartment. The main problem was the awful stench of the toilet water. Every time we flushed a terrible smell would permeate the apartment and at night when we came back after the house had been closed up all day, it was so bad we were gagging. It can't have been hygienic either! Believe me I am not exaggerating either! I am well used to hiking and free camping in the bush and have a high tolerance for unsanitary conditions, but I don't expect to have to spend over €120 per night for the experience. I had to resort to leaving the bathroom window open all the time and blocking the bottom of the bathroom door with a towel to contain the smell. I also sprayed perfume everywhere. In the end we only slept at the apartment. I think there was a problem with the buildings sewerage but that does not excuse Andreas renting the apartment knowing full well of it's shortcomings. I asked him to repair it, he said he would, but did not bother to follow through. He also did not offer a discount, apology or refund of any kind. In fact after my complaint I did not see him again. He refunded my security deposit via PaPal. Normally I would not complain about these other things, but given the circumstances.... The photos of this apartment are old and do not accurately convey the circumstances of the apartment. The kitchen bench is stained and has old mould staining, the outside of the fridge was dirty, the walls of the apartment are marked and dirty, the bathroom grout is stained with old mould and the apartment is in fact much smaller and less bright that reflected in the pictures. I did not cook in this apartment at all as I had intended, it was not clean enough and frankly the smell put me off! Consequently my trip cost more than I intended. The master bed is rock hard, but I will say the linen is fresh and lovely. The apartment was warm. There are a lot of stairs but this did not worry us. However it is on a busy main road and has a very narrow foot path. My children are older, so it was not a problem for me, but I would not like to have to negotiate the street with small children or a pram in tow. Also, I got a taxi home at night as the street is only dimly lit and does not feel safe after dark to walk. I have stayed in many apartments over the years and have never written a review before but this was so bad I felt I had to.

EXCELLENT LOCATION, GREAT PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four, 2 adults and 2 teens spent Christmas week in this apartment. Our flight arrived at 7:00 a.m. and no one had stayed in the apartment the day before ours, so they allowed us early entry. It is a great location with restaurants and markets nearby. The apartment is on the 2nd (3rd for USA) floor in the building without elevator but the stairs were comfortable. The apartment has high ceilings and large windows so the rooms felt big. The apartment includes a washer-dryer which was convenient. The Kitchen is sunny, very functional with a dishwasher which avoids to wash your own dishes every day. There are small markets within five minutes walking so you can get whatever food you need for meals to eat in. We found also a great pizzeria with wood fired pizza, five minutes walking, my son loved pizza. Excellent location, near Vatican Museum and St. Peter’s square. We had a wonderful stay in Rome and would definitely rent this apartment again.

GREAT STAY, GREAT OWNER

  • 5 of 5

My son and I went to Rome at Thanksgiving and stayed at this wonderful apartment. Marble entry and stairway to our 2 br apartment. Outside my bedroom, on the balconey, was the great view of St. Peter's Dome. This location is at the wall of Vatican City so you are minutes from St. Peter's Square. Very affordable and has all the amenties you need. Excellent resturants within 1/2 to 1 mile. The owner is very trustworthy as he send me back over $1100 US that I had left in the apartment when we returned back to the States. We would highly recommend this apartment. Thanks!!!

Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful !

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful !

This charming apartment was absolutely perfect for our family of four, a magical spot in all ways! It is beautifully located very near St Peter’s Square. The sleeping was perfectly quiet, with the main bedroom facing a little street and a private garden.

There are many windows, lots of natural light and a beautiful view of Rome rooftops.

The apartment is near so many shops and cafes, and close to several bus lines.

The living/dining area has a large windows and gives a spacious feeling. The furnishings and decor are mainly IKEA, but the place feels very personal, which is lovely when you are visiting such charming city. There are several food shops nearby so you can shop for your food on Aurelia street, and stores for other living needs as well. Pizzeria, restaurants and gelateria (ice-cream) plentiful nearby. Excellent wifi at the apartment, good hot water and water pressure, functional kitchen for meals at home. Very good value for this apartment right in a great section of the city! I'd go back in a heartbeat!

Great Rental in Rome

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at this great rental while we were in Rome for the Easter holiday. I don't have one negative thing to say, it was perfect. The two bedrooms apartment has plenty of space and fit 4 adults and a baby perfectly.

Andrea and Monica were nothing short of amazing, even providing us a new highchair for our daughter. They were equipped also with baby cot making it easier on us.

The public transport are a short walk and took us everywhere we needed to go. There are a handful of restaurants, bars and grocery stores nearby making food options super easy. Not to mention the famous Saint Peter’s Dome and the roofs of Rome that we admired from the little terrace

I would definitely recommend this rental to anyone visiting Rome
