                                                                                                    My husband and I, along with my 87-year-old mother (on her first visit to Rome) and my 26-year-old son, stayed in this truly elegant, spacious, well-appointed apartment for five nights and had an absolutely fabulous time! We loved being in the beautiful, centrally-located neighborhood within walking distance of many of Rome’s most renowned sites and enjoyed availing ourselves of the local shops and restaurants in the area. Kitty-corner from the American Embassy, and on the same block as the local police station, we felt completely safe and at ease in our surroundings. An added bonus was the full-service COOP market located just steps outside the building’s lobby doors. With its extended hours, we were able to replenish household supplies, pick up a bottle of wine (or two), and dash in for snacks whenever necessary. The apartment provided everyone with their own private space and comfortable beds; and the two bathrooms afforded four adults the opportunity to easily get ready for our busy days of touring. Having a full kitchen allowed us to leisurely begin each morning with coffee or tea, along with fresh pastries from a nearby bakery. Most importantly, the central location - along with the taxi stand conveniently located just around the corner - provided us with ease of access to all points in Rome. The apartment was quiet, clean, and perfect for our needs - including the little elevator, which was a requirement for my Mum. I would highly recommend it to a group of 4 to 6 people who are looking to visit the Eternal City and wish to immerse themselves in the experience of "living" in one of Rome’s most delightful neighborhoods. We especially appreciated the care and attention provided us by Ms. Rossella Alfonsi. Responsive to our questions and proactive with suggestions both prior to and upon our arrival, she was an absolute joy to work with. We would not hesitate to again book a stay here and look forward to doing so in the future.

The apartment was clean, has good air conditioning for a hot summer in Roma, a relief. Two bathrooms a plus. Icebox makes ice! (though one or two more ice trays would have been great.) Stocked with coffee, olive oil, salt and pepper, perfect starter to be able to cook in the flat. Kitchen is small, but what isn't small in Rome city center? Wifi was poor initially, but Mary was responsive and fixed in just a couple of days into our 8 night stay. I highly recommend this place.

From the moment we stepped into her lovely home, we had the most wonderful time. Her house is just absolutely gorgeous! But more importantly, she is the most gracious and helpful host. She called taxi for us, helped us identify good restaurants, made reservations and checked on us regularly to ensure everything was good. Don't waste your time looking at any other place! This is where you want to be. I want to come back to Rome just so I can enjoy the apartment!! Thanks a lot Ortensia!!
