Beautiful Apartment and a Great Location

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in Alessia’s lovely apartment in February 2014. We spent a long time looking at various different apartments in other areas of Rome, but decided on this one because of its location, providing easy walking access to the Vatican (5 minutes), and to the historic centre (15 minutes). It is also only 5 minutes walk to Ottaviano metro station for easy access to Colosseo etc. There are mini-markets on the same block, and a decent Carrefour Express about 7 minutes walk away. Choosing an apartment in the Prati district was, for us, the right thing to do and I would definitely go back.

The main rooms of the apartment are almost palatial, with beautiful furniture and decor. It really is as grand as the pictures suggest. The apartment occupies the corner of this block on the sixth floor so there are views to two sides, including a fantastic view of the dome of St. Peters. You can walk up onto the roof terrace for an even better view. The windows are new doubled glazed and keep out most of the traffic noise from Piazza Risorgimento, but light sleepers might want earplugs (that advice applies to all of Rome).

The piano works and is in tune, so if you can play, that is an added bonus. No English channels on the TV, but you don’t come to Rome to watch TV.

The bedrooms are all big. One has an ensuite and in fact having three bathrooms was a real plus. There were six in our party and it made getting ready in the morning so much quicker. Again, the bathrooms are extremely well finished. The ensuite has a bath, and one of the others has a shower.

The kitchen is spacious and reasonably well appointed, and we enjoyed family meals for six without feeling cramped. Some of the fixtures need a bit of attention, and the oven / cooker was a bit temperamental, but overall it did the job.

I wouldn’t hesitate to book this apartment again.

Beautiful apartment, fantastic location

  • 5 of 5
The property is beautiful, beds comfortable, spacious rooms, and fantastic location in Prati. Alessia and her Mom were wonderful hosts, and went out of their way to accommodate us. They gave great recommendations for everything from restaurants to car service. Highly recommend the property, the location, and the wonderful hosts. Super spacious and luxurious.

Only one note (I could not go below 5 stars because it was so beautiful.) Internet is a problem here. There is a wireless router, but it could take a minute + just to fill a web page. If you only have occasional email it could be fine, but not good enough to do any searching about local areas or to depend on at all.

It was well worth it, but for anyone who that might be important to (and to us it was) the should know in advance.

The apartment is everything that is advertised

  • 5 of 5
There were 6 adults (2 seniors and our 2 adult sons and their wives) arrived for a 2 night stay and this apartment is everything that is shown in the pictures. The location was just where the description said and our pictures out the windows look just like those on the site. The place was very clean and well maintained and Alessia does everything to help make your stay wonderful. Before we arrived she booked our transportation from the airport to the apartment, from the apartment to the cruise ship and then from the cruise ship to the airport and all went off without a hitch. The drivers were good drivers and arrived early for each pickup. On top of that there was a hand writen list on the table to tell us where we could find groceries, where restaurants were and how to get to different places. There were walking tours printed off for different locations. Alessia went far above our expections to provide great customer service. The unit is in an ideal location for seeing the sites of Rome. We walked to all of the attractions in Ancient Rome and only took the Metro back from the Coliseum the last evening because it was late and we were very tired, but this too went well. We were warned to be warry of pick pockets but with due diligences had no problems. The apartment was in an area that we felt comfortable walking during the day and into the evening.
We have passed the information about this apartment on to friends already and would not hesitate to book this unit again even if traveling alone. We will pass the information to others.
Thanks again Alessia for a wonderful time and all the great help.

A month of "la dolce vita"

A month of "la dolce vita"
  • 5 of 5
We recently returned from a month's stay in Alessia's lovely apartment. We were two couples (60 +) and wanted enough space for everyone to be comfortable and have their privacy.
We were quite charmed with apartment and found it provided just what we needed. It's on the top fl.(6th) with a 4 pax lift. There are 3 comfortable bedrooms, (1 with ensuite bath with handheld shower) and 2 more bathrooms, one with regular shower and the other a half bath.
The kitchen is very functional and pleasant and had everything we needed. The washer is located in the kitchen, but no clothes dryer (a rare bird anywhere in Italy), but the clothesline on the rooftop is easily accessible and this upper terrace/rooftop is pretty much for the exclusive use of this apartment. There is no furniture on the rooftop but I would recommend a visit for the comprehensive views. I had really wanted an accessible, functional terrace and was concerned this would be a disappointment, but as it turned out, we didn't miss it and enjoyed our views from the windows.
There is a spacious living room area and a separate cozy sitting room with a flat screened tv, however, no english speaking programs. There is wifi but it works only in the living and sitting room areas(no kitchen or bedroom access), but this was not a problem for us.
The views of St Peter's, both day and evening, were magical and definitely a big plus. The area of Risorgemento is busy and noisy, but VERY convenient to shopping, restaurants; bus and tram transportation are literally out the door or a 5 minute walk to the metro. With the windows closed, the noise level was fine, and with the windows open, we came to regard it as a fun part of the Italian lifestyle and our experience, and became somewhat oblivious to it
We walked, when at all possible (Spanish Steps/Campo De Fiori, Pantheon is very doable) and, of course, the Vatican is 5 minutes away, so there were many evening strolls to St. Peter's Square, after a visit to "Old Bridge", literally "the best" gelateria in Rome and just across the street from the apartment. The gelato was fabulous ( and after many trips to Italy, I consider myself somewhat of an expert) and the portion for the smallest size and price (1.50 euro) is huge. It is also a Rick Steve's recommendation. St. Peter's in the evening is fabulous when the crowds have dispersed. Alessia could not have been more accommodating and helpful to our needs and requests and we were very happy with our choice.

Great apartment! Great location!

  • 5 of 5
We decided on this apartment based on the location and favorable reviews. We were not disappointed! The pictures of the interior and views are very accurate. Prior to our arrival, Alessia arranged for our taxi from the airport. Alessia and her mother met us at the apartment and gave us information on restaurants, markets, and tours. All of the recommendations made by Alessia were very good. Alessia was available and very willing to answer questions when we needed help but never intruded . If you decide on this apartment (and we highly recommend you do) make sure you have a glass of wine on the rooftop balcony - the views of the city are beautiful! We will return to Rome in the near future and will stay here again. If you are looking for a place near the apartment for dinner and a drink make sure you introduce yourself to Meemo at the Vizi & Stravizi around the corner from the entrance to the apartment.

Six of us recently spent a weekend here at the beginning of a week-long trip to Rome and Florence. We thoroughly enjoyed Alessia's clean, beautiful apartment that is near the Ottaviano Metropolitana stop and just around the corner from several bus lines. The photographs are accurate! Alessia's mom checked us in, and we met Alessia later. Both are very kind and helpful. During my planning stages, Alessia promptly returned my many emails about the booking process and the hiring of a taxi for us (great suggestion because the driver picked us up at the airport and dropped us directly at the apartment). During our stay Alessia helped us figure out the best time for us to head to the train terminal for the next leg of our trip. I highly recommend this apartment because it is far from the noisy crowds but very near the major sites via the Metropolitana and bus lines. It was a great place of rest for us.
