Lovely, quiet apartment right near the Vatican!

  • 5 of 5

Daniela and her daughter were so kind! Daniela helped with our luggage, and she and her daughter provided us with directions for getting around the city and with recommendations for restaurants. The apartment was more than enough room for my husband and me, clean, and just lovely! Thank you, Daniela!

Great apt and wonderful Host

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 86 year old mother and I spent 8 nights at Daniela's apt. It was perfect for us! We had planned on eating our dinners in most nights as I knew we would be tired from sightseeing.

The kitchen works very well to cook in. The rooms are ample size and quite comfortable. The location is excellent and there are 2 markets very close by. The patio is a bonus although we didn't get to use it as it was a rainy week. Daniela and her delightful daughter were there to greet us when we arrived despite the fact that we arrived about 6 hrs. later than anticipated.

Daniela is most communicative and was helpful and easy to reach throughout the trip answering any questions we had.She even arranged our transfer back and forth to airport!

This is a great apt to stay in if you are looking for if you want to be away from very touristy area but in close proximity to Vatican and public transportation to all major attractions. We used Uber more than usual because of some heavy rain and my mom had an Uber acct!!

It was our pleasure to meet Daniela and her daughter! Daniela is a wonderful host!! We will be back!! One suggestion Is to write out washing machine instructions in English. I always have difficulty with the symbols on the machine!

wonderful apartment

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was just about perfect. The apartment is fabulous, felt very much like home the week we were there, and Daniela (and her daughter) made us feel really welcome, setting up transportation from and to the airport, meeting us at the apartment, and checking in on us through email. The apartment had everything we needed for our stay, and we greatly appreciated the maps and recommendations that were there for us. It's situated just outside the tourist zone around the Vatican, so we were close to a lot of things we wanted to do and see (and gelato places) but not immersed in tourist shops. There are restaurants nearby, grocery stores, local shops--pretty much anything one would need. The metro stop is only a few blocks away, and St Peter's is about a ten-minute walk. I would absolutely stay here again!

Lovely Oasis in Roma

  • 5 of 5

My best friend and I immediately felt at home and relaxed in this lovely apartment. This was our first time in Italy/Rome and we'd been travelling in quieter Tuscany, so I think we were both a little worried about what we'd find in the larger city. However, once we saw the apartment and met Daniela and her wonderful daughters.... it really was a delightful oasis. The location was perfect for walking all over Rome, we loved the local food and shops. So happy we chose to stay there!!

My mother and I loved it!!! Perfect Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival into Rome, Miss Daniela arranged our transportation to the apartment and when my mother and I arrived we were met by Miss Daniela and her lovely daughter Giorgia. The apartment was exactly as described and they went over every detail of the apartment as well as provided us with a detailed map of nearby restaurants, supermarkets, and public transportation. I have been to Rome 7 times and this by far has been the best apartment that I have rented. The apartment is classic Italian and we took several pictures but it also included cold Air conditioning, Wi-Fi, large bathrooms, washing machine, satellite TV, etc. What I really appreciated is Miss Daniela following up on us via email to make sure everything was to our liking. At Checkout, they were right on time, and made sure the airport service was on time. Most of all, what impressed me the most, is that Miss Daniela and Giorgia genuinely cared about our stay. I know for a fact, I will stay here again because the apartment was spotless and because the owner cared about our satisfaction. I highly recommend this apartment and my only regret is that I only wish I found it on my previous trips. Thank you so much Miss Daniela and Giorgia!
