Perfect place for a week in Rome

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this apartment during our week in room! It was quiet, clean, small but very functional for 2 people, and in a GREAT location -- walking distance to Colosseum with a number of nearby gelaterias, pizzerias, and pasticcerias. Could not have asked for a more kind and organized host. He was readily available via text or email if we had any questions, and he arranged for our place to be cleaned half-way through the week. He even gave us a quick walking tour of the neighborhood upon our arrival. We also highly recommend using the limo service - it was affordable, extremely convenient, and our driver was a native of Rome so he was able to offer great tips for visiting the city.

Fabio is Wonderful Host

  • 5 of 5

I was so glad that all the reviews lived up to my expectations. This was my first rental through VRBO and it happened to be overseas for my honeymoon so I was crossing my fingers everything worked out. It was perfect. Fabio helped to arrange transportation from the airport to his apartment which most likely would have been very stressful if not for his help. The gentleman who drove us from the airport was fabulous as well giving us a history lesson as we went by a few sights in Rome. Fabio greeted us at the apartment and gave us a 5minute walking tour to get us acquainted with the neighborhood. What I loved most was this little area was not touristy so I felt very safe and was able to get a better idea of a "local" experience. The gelato stand that was a 1-2 minute walk away was my favorite in all of Italy and Croatia and we enjoyed sitting at the fountain up the road with the locals in the evening having a few beers. Fabio even sent us helpful links with walking directions to the sights we had on our agenda and even added his recommendations to the list. Thank you Fabio for helping make our stay in Rome easy and memorable.

Great apartment in a fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for my family's stay in Rome. We arrived in the middle of a heat wave and were very happy to have an apartment with great air conditioning. The area is charming, with every convenience at hand. Most major sites are within walking distance. The subway is also very close by to visit places like the Vatican. I had been worried that the one room may be cramped and not offer enough storage for our belongings, but I was wrong. It is spacious and there are plenty of shelves and places to hang clothes etc. The property manager is fantastic and very responsive.

Great location and incredible property manager!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is great. It's small but has EVERYTHING you might need from A/C, clean facilities, kitchen and everything in between. The apartment is located very close to many of the wonderful attractions the city has to offer. The property manager Fabio was extremely friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend to anyone.

Lovely ground-floor studio apartment in a happening neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

This property is essentially a studio apartment, with one very large living/dining room area, a small kitchen, and a large bathroom - with a heavenly full shower, as large as a bathtub! (very unusual in Italy, and also very welcome) You can tell that the apartment has been recently and thoughtfully decorated, and both the bedlinens and towels are of the highest quality. And a not unimportant factor in the hot, Roman summer: the air conditioning works great!!

You can have up to 4 people staying here, because the room is large enough so that both sofa beds can be pulled out at once, and not overlap.

You cannot beat the location. It is half way down a quiet, residential street in the very happening 'Monti' area of Rome, with lots of great restaurants - you are only steps away from Fatamorgana, one of the best gelato shops in Rome - and don't miss the pizza at 'Grazie a Dio e Venerdi' (Thank God It's Friday!) on Via dei Capocci, the next street over.

It's closest to the Cavour Metro stop, but in a pinch you can actually walk north on Via Cavour for about 10- 15 minutes, straight to the Termini rail station, where you can catch the Leonardo Express to the airport. Heading south, in the other direction, you are only about 5-10 minutes from the Colosseum. Head west and it's about the same amount of time to Trajan's column and the Forum.

Fabio is a great owner, and very helpful about providing local neighborhood information, and places to see. He is also incredibly patient: - he cheerfully waited for me in the apartment way past my scheduled arrival time when my train was unexpectedly delayed by 2 hours.

I can only think of one, small quirky aspect to this apartment: because it's a studio apartment, space is limited. There is plenty of drawer space for clothing, but the closet where you hang your clothes is up on the wall, so you have to use one of those department store, hook-things to hang up your clothes. If you're not a clothes hanging person, it won't matter.

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...'
