Natalia worked as a flight attendant (cabin crew) for Alitalia Airlines from 1970 to 1995. Prior to her work at Alitalia, she lived for more than a year in London, studying and working in a tourist agency. She speaks excellent English, understands and speaks Spanish and can 'get by' in French.

The twenty-five years she spent traveling from one country to another gave her an opportunity to learn about the ways and customs of many countries and enhanced her natural predisposition for interpersonal relationships; she always succeeds in establishing an immediate, friendly relationship with her guests.

Since 1995, she has attended the 'Academy of Decorative Arts', discovering a hidden talent for painting and decorating that she never imagined before. She now puts this talent to use personally decorating her apartments. In fact, the tiles in the kitchens and the tabletops in the dining areas of her apartments are all hand painted as well as the tromp l'oeil paintings, which gives each apartment a unique touch.

In the last 4 years she has attended courses of the History of Roman Art, which allowed her to get to know the city on a new level. She provides her guests with useful information on Rome and its monuments and archaeological sites.

Great Colosseum Apartment

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 27, 2014
  • Stayed: Mar 2014
We stayed in the Colosseum apartment and had a great stay. It was only 5 minutes from the Colosseum, but far enough away that it was quiet at night. It is well maintained and very cute. The owners were VERY focused on making sure we had an excellent stay! They even left a cell phone with us...just in case we needed help or had questions at any time. They also gave us great ideas for additional places to see and great places to eat during our stay. I HIGHLY recommend this apartment.

Comfortable and homely

Comfortable, homely place. Good appliances with everything in good condition. Suitable for 2 adults and a child, not really 4 adults, pretty small. The second bathroom is tiny!! Tried to use the shower once but just too small and uncomfortable. But overall good location and place.
The transfer organised by the host didn't turn up though which was pretty disappointing and stressful! When we tried to contact the host they then didn't answer. Maybe consider going through a better transfer company we would suggest.

Owner's Response: Dear Guest

Thank you for sending your review, suggestions of our guests are always most welcome. We are pleased to hear that you had a pleasant holiday in Rome and that you found our apartment homely and in a great location (I know that one of the two bathrooms is tiny but it is published as a half bathroom).
Walter and I are sorry that we did not meet you personally. As we informed you in advance we went for a short vacation to USA handing over all contacts to Stefanie , the person who takes care of our guests during our absence.
We are very sorry to read on your review that a problem occurred with transfer during your stay in Italy.
I obviously checked with Stefanie which confirmed that transfer on your arrival from FCO airport to Colosseum View 1 on March 5th was perfectly on time.
After talking to you on the phone the 7th’ evening, she made the reservation for your pick-up next morning at 10:45 to Termini Station.
Our taxi service confirmed a regular pick-up for the times requested in both services.
None of us registered an incoming call from you the morning of March 8th (even when we travel for vacation we never switch off our mobiles and we are always reachable by our guests).
We are trying to find an explanation and the only possible thing we can think about that while traveling Italy you had a problem somewhere else? Could this be ?
Best regards
Natalia and Walter

Great stay

Both the flat and location were great. Even though it is situated near Colosseum, the traffic noise didn't disturb at all. The flat was very tidy and the description of it was accurate. It really felt like home. The heating worked well so it was very comfortable and cosy even in the winter. We received a very warm welcome by the owners with lots of information and useful tips. There are many excellent reataurants in the same street. Two metro stations nearby and an electric bus, which takes you e.g. to the Spanish Steps, runs right in front of the building. I truly recommend this property.

Fantastic hosts, great apartment

Walter and Natalia were perfect hosts and their apartment is wonderful. There were four in our party and when we arrived, my sister-in-law was sick. Natalia drove her around until they found an open pharmacy and Natalia translated and was able to obtain the antibiotics that saved the vacation! While they were off in search of the pharmacy, Walter had breakfast with the rest of us and told us about Rome. Natalia knows a lot about her city and can help you develop an itinerary if you don't already have one. She knows what sites to see and how to book museums that require advance reservations. They will also do the booking for you if you like. They even have a cell phone they leave for guests in case of emergency or if you need assistance. Natalia and Walter are always on the other end.

I don't think you could find more enthusiastic and helpful hosts. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the apartment! My only caution regards the second bathroom. It is extremely small. I weigh only 100 lb and had trouble turning around! But everything is clean and otherwise perfect! Highly recommended.

Dolce Roma Apartment Colliseum

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Sep 27, 2013
  • Stayed: May 2013
We thoroughly enjoyed our neighborhood stay in Rome. Such a convenient location to everything we wanted to do and see. We walked nearly everywhere. The apartment was very cozy and clean and accommodated two couples well even though the one bathroom was quite small. The owner was very gracious — met us late at night and escorted us to a restaurant in the neighborhood. The neighborhood restaurants became our favorites! Walter took great care in giving us directions, information and helpful tips that we used. He went the extra mile. I would definitely recommend Dolce Roma. I appreciated both the efficiency and the hospitality of the owners. A very interesting tour was the Tomb of St. Peter that requires reservations way ahead of time. It's located under the Vatican. We also enjoyed climbing to the top of the Vatican.
