Amazing Stay in Rome

  • 5 of 5

We traveled last year with our two teenagers and arrived on June 29th. I feel terrible for not doing the review right away because it was the good reviews that sold us on this property. Everything was VERY clean and the owner, Fabio was so helpful for answering questions, meeting us, making a dinner reservation for us as well as driving us to a few sights. The driver that he recommended for Rome Airport pick up was perfect.

Great Holiday in Rome

  • 5 of 5

I can not say enough about how wonderful our stay in Rome at the Suite La Piazzetta was. The location of the apartment couldn't be better. You are steps away from the Coliseum but nestled in a nice residential area that makes you feel you are off the beaten path. Fabio was wonderful about sharing tips and information about the neighborhood and the city of Rome. He even scheduled our taxi on the day we were leaving. The apartment was very clean and spacious enough for two adults and two children. The shower is very, very small so that is an important detail for some people. Also, we did have to buy toilet paper so my only suggestion would be maybe to provide more of that for guests as I have seen that in other reviews. It did not bother me to buy some while I was out because I know if I had contacted Fabio, he would have taken care of it. It just wasn't that important to me. Otherwise, the AC was working perfectly and it was great coming back to the apartment after spending very hot days walking around Rome. I highly recommend staying in Fabio's apartment and I look forward to recommending others to stay here and possibly return at some point!

Overall Good

  • 3 of 5

July 2-5, 2016

Fabio's apartment was our last stop on a 16 day trip from Germany, Austria, and to Italy. We stayed in five VRBO places and I write our last stay's review first. We are a family of four with two grown children; 18 and 21. We are tall - 6'5", 6'0, 5'9 and 5'11". Fabio's apartment was very nice and well appointed BUT small. That was Ok with us because we were out touring and did not spend a lot time in any of our apartments. The beds were probably the most comfortable of our trip. The Murphy beds were cool but again space was limited for all to sit around and chat. Arriving at the apartment was somewhat comical as we got there about 15 minutes before Fabio arrived and got "trapped" between the main door and an interior gated door. The elevator to the first floor was nice for luggage, but was only a two man elevator - no big deal.

Here is why I went with three stars. The bath room was very small to include a shower that was about as big as a filing cabinet. In the shower was a spray handle that looked like an antique telephone that when initially used felt like being stung by bees. The overhead sprayer was completely unusable because the holes in the shower head were clogged by hard-water deposits, which cause the shower head to rupture on the side. This was happening to the hand sprayer too. The hand spray soon failed under the pressure of the clogged holes and popped off. In an attempt to fix the spray head it became useless. I then took a knife and for about an hour un-clogged each hole in the shower head so we could take showers. These failures were simply a lack of maintenance and clearly ignoring a developing problem. Once I fixed the holes we could take showers again. And the shower drain was clogged and I found some drain-o in the cabinet which seemed to work after a couple of applications.

Also, no toilet paper. We had to go out late on the first night to a store and buy some.

Ladies don't even think about shaving your legs in the shower.

A/C = perfect. Best of the trip.

Fabio was helpful with showing us around and making recommendations about where to eat. He also booked our taxi to the airport which was nice and on-time.

So, if I have to fix things while paying to stay can become frustrating and time away from a relaxing vacation. I would recommend the apartment. It was located in a cool, younger, up-and-coming neighborhood. It was close to the Metro and the Colosseum.

Owner's Response: Ciao James, this is my worst review (I only had 5 stars reviews). I really thank you for the chance to get better, that's very important! But I keen to point out something. You arrived 4 HOURS BEFORE the time you told me, and I knew it only one hour before you came. You've been waiting me for 15 minutes, it was my best. You got "trapped" between the main door and an interior gated door, but there is a very big switch with a very very big plaque saying: "DOOR OPEN". No one else has never been trapped there. There is a difference between "no toilet paper" and "I think the toilet paper was not enough for us". You found the toilet paper inside. Anyway, since you wanted more, I asked you to wait until the next morning, infact I was there again and I tryed to call you. About the apartment, beds and shower size, everything is clearly written on the web-site and on the pictures. I think - for example - you can't write a bad review because there is not a swimming pool inside the unit. Same for a standard queen bed, or a standard single bed, you had what you reserved: reading all the informations about the apartment you are going to reserve - before you reserve it - is much better. About the hand spray, I checked it after your departure and it was not working well. I apologize, I am sorry you wasted your time. But you could call or text me, I always fix everything as soon as I can and I usually provide a discount, your satisfaction is very important to me. I really hope to host you again, you will be always welcome! I will try to deserve a 5 stars review!

A quiet street 4 blocks from the heart of ancient rome

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is perfect for those looking for a place right next to ancient Rome. It is very well appointed and we'll designed. We were very comfortable here with our teenaged daughter, there is even a door between sleeping areas for privacy. Fabio is very helpful and responsive making the experience very enjoyable.

Great location! Clean apartment and wonderful host!

  • 5 of 5

Fabio was very communicative and helpful, not only in the pre planning but during our stay. This was most appreciated as it was our first trip to Italy. The location of this unit is absolutely the best. Wonderful restaurants and bars, close to metro, and a little off the super touristy areas. Highly recommend.

The quarter is the oldest one of Rome: in the ancien times the name was SVBVRA (you have to read 'V' like 'U'), it was a place with a lot of brothels... Nerone used to go there in disguise to test plebeian mood, and it is Caesar's birthplace also.

Today is a little bit different, Monti is a very cool quarter!

This is the article published in TheGuardian (http://m.guardian.co.uk/travel/2012/mar/08/rome-monti-neighbourhood-city-guide):

'The full Monti: Rome's cool quarter. A stone's throw from Rome's Colosseum, you'll find the up-and-coming neighbourhood of Monti, buzzing with cool bars, fashion shops and traditional restaurants, loved by a loyal local crowd.

The Colosseum may be one of Rome's main tourist attractions, but wander up the slight incline away from the famous amphitheatre and you'll find endless gems of architecture, craft, fashion and restaurants tucked away in narrow streets and quiet corners. Formerly the city's seedy underbelly – where prostitutes and outlaws took refuge until as recently as the 1940s – Monti is now an enclave for the city's young, creative flock, and has the new upstarts to prove it. Strolling the cobblestone streets, you're likely to hear the hum of a designer's sewing machine or the thud of a hammer in a jeweller's shop.

The neighbourhood, named after one of Rome's seven famous hills, marries modernity with historical charm – from the fresh new ventures rubbing up against centuries of crumbling craftsmanship to the dapper signore ordering his cafe next to a bedraggled hipster.

Smaller and less touristy than the nightlife hub of Trastevere, it retains a strong community vibe...'
