Great Location - Great View

  • 5 of 5
Conveniently close to the metro A line and a major bus stop (in front of the Basilica), and in a vastly underrated neighborhood of Rome. The home is spacious, clean, and well provisioned. The evenings out on the balcony with the moon rising over St John's were tremendous. The owners are reliable, flexible, and friendly. We had a great vacation due in large part to choosing the right home base.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful apartment & so close to public transport & the main attractions of Rome. There were seven of us for most of our stay & as others have said it was clean & the bedrooms roomy with ceiling fans in three & aircon in the fourth. We used the kitchen to cook a few evening meals but there are several restaurants close by. The only complaint was that the washing machine wasn't working but Luisa did offer to take any washing away to do. Luisa! You are wonderful. Right from when we booked over a year ago you have replied to my emails promptly. You organised airport transfers for three different parties at different times & meet them on arrival. Your apartment is in the perfect position & if I was returning in a group I would definitely book again. Thank you, you made it all so easy.

An excellent location for sightseeing in Rome

  • 5 of 5
Seven members of my family stayed in this apartment for four days at the beginning of June 2014, during a sightseeing trip to Rome. The location of the apartment was ideal for such a trip. The nearest tram stop is a two minute walk away and the nearest Metro station, about five minutes away. The apartment achieves the often conflicting requirements of being relatively quiet yet within easy reach of Rome's attractions. There are four good sized bedrooms, three doubles and a twin and three bathrooms. We spent most of our time when we were in the apartment sitting around the table on the balcony where there is a view of Saint Giovanni in Laterano. The kitchen is well equipped for basic cooking and nearby are several good restaurants and supermarkets. We all found the apartment a much better option than hotel rooms for our visit to Rome.
No review would be complete without a commendation for Luisa, the owner. She was so attentive, responsive and helpful and always easily contactable. Luisa was kind enough to find the availability of alternative accommodation for us on the day of our departure when our flight home was suddenly cancelled. Thank you Luisa for your warm welcome and for your kindness.

Home away from home in Rome!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 4 (2 adults and 2 boys under 12) stayed here for 3 nights in April 2014 and found the apartment wonderful - the photos are a good representation of the apartment and we found it to be clean and well maintained. The location is excellent, with a good mini-supermarket, pizzeria and bar/café nearby. We really enjoyed the terrace and views with our glass of Prosecco after a hard days sight seeing. The kitchen had everything necessary to make our stay a delight. The wifi was excellent, and we were able to walk to most ‘must see’ attractions and loved exploring the city on foot. Luisa made us feel very welcome and even organised a personal transfer from the airport on arrival (for the same cost as a taxi but much easier) and then to the train station for the next stage of our trip. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to our family and friends.

Christmas in Rome!

  • 4 of 5
My (large - 9 of us) family had saved all year for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to visit this city of historic and spiritual significance. We had stayed in a vacation rental once before on a vacation in Mexico and wanted to try it again here in Rome.

The apartment is conveniently located near the San Giovanni basilica and near two stops on the RED line of the Metro. It was clean and tidy, but very SMALL by American standards. This is the "norm" when it comes to architecture in Europe - bathrooms/showers/hallways/restaurants. Very little room to move around (again, by American standards).

This fact should not be a "knock" against the apartment here in this review - just wanted to get that out of the way for the first-time travelers to Europe.

The apartment was clean, tidy and Luisa is AWESOME! She was quick to respond to needs, questions, recommendations and she even helped us get a stroller (we were in a hurry and forgot ours at home). One wouldn't think that it's that hard to buy a stroller in Rome...but it WAS. She used a company called Travel Baby - and they were OUTSTANDING.

This being our second stay at a vacation rental, we were again impressed and believe that this enhances the overall experience. The apartment has working Wi-Fi and even has a basket of European wall plug converters and headphones for the tours, etc.

We were able to cover all the attractions that we wanted to see, and even snuck in a visit to Venice while we were here. Luisa helped us get rates on Hi-speed Euro Train tickets from Rome to Venice. Thanks!

We saw the Colosseum, the Vatican, the Spanish Steps, Trevi fountains and more! **PLEASE BE CAREFUL AND WATCHFUL FOR PICKPOCKETTING** We received several warnings from people, and they are ALL TRUE. Three different (unsuccessful, thank God) attempts by Gypsies while on the Metro. They are slick and BOLD, non-apologetic when caught. I don't want to scare anyone from visiting Rome, but this has to be mentioned. A hand over your purse, ladies. Gentlemen, bury your wallet in an inside jacket pocket or a money belt. A skinny little gypsy lady had her hand RIGHT INSIDE MY FRONT POCKET. >:-/ unbelievable if I didn't experience it myself.

EVERYTHING regarding the rental was great, though. LOVED IT! Thank you, LUISA! God bless you and Happy New Year!

Owner's Response: Thank you Lucia, I'm happy you had a pleasent stay and it didn't end in a disaster because of the gypsies. It's really a great inconvinience in Italy. Gypsy gangs use child thieves and law enforcement agencies are seemingly powerless to prevent it. I use to advise my guests when they arrive:

Be especially careful anywhere that’s crowded: Buses, subways, train stations, street markets, exceedingly popular tourist spots. Also, be especially careful around gypsies, who only hang around tourist sights in order to steal.
Keep everything valuable in a moneybelt (that means your passport, credit cards, driver’s license, insurance cards, plane tickets, rail passes, traveler’s checks, and excess cash) and wear this money belt at all times and under your clothes.

Thank you Lucia and Family, God bless your great Family and I wish you a happy New Year filled with love and prosperity

Perfect apartment for stay in Rome

  • 5 of 5
Have stayed in this apartment in November, 2012 and again in 2013. I would never stay anywhere else in Rome. IT IS PERFECT. Everything you need is in the apartment and everything you want to see or do is within easy reach by foot, subway, bus or taxi right outside your door. But the best of all is the landlord Luisa, who is at your service at all times. I am proud to say that we are now dear friends and I like to refer to her as my sister in Rome. I feel so lucky to have stumbled across her place on the internet originally and to have been able to visit her twice so far. Hope to do so many more times.

Rome is in the Lazio region of central Italy on the Tiber river. The original settlement developed on hills that faced onto a ford beside the Tiber island, the only natural ford of the river in this area. The Rome of the Kings was built on seven hills: the Aventine Hill, the Caelian Hill, the Capitoline Hill, the Esquiline Hill, the Palatine Hill, the Quirinal Hill, and the Viminal Hill. Modern Rome is also crossed by another river the Aniene which joins the Tiber north of the historic centre.

Although the city center is about 24 kilometres (15 mi) inland from the Tyrrhenian Sea, the city territory extends to the shore, where the south-western district of Ostia is located. The altitude of the central part of Rome ranges from 13 metres (43 ft) above sea level (at the base of the Pantheon) to 139 metres (456 ft) above sea level (the peak of Monte Mario).[34] The Commune of Rome covers an overall area of about 1,285 square kilometres (496 sq mi), including many green areas.
