Fantastic, couldn't have chosen a better place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Don't be fooled by the exterior of this apartment, we were worried when we first walked up but once we met the amazing owner Francesca and saw the apartment we were thrilled! The apartment is huge, clean, has all the amenities you could possibly need and then some. Francesca was an absolute sweetheart, she had a chilled bottle of wine ready for us upon arrival, even offered to meet us at the train and bring us to the place. She was so nice and made us feel at home, gave us so much info on Rome and things to do, provided maps and information booklets, told us which buses to take, the best places to eat, where to do laundry and the list goes on. She made herself available at all times if we needed anything or had questions and checked in via WhatsApp every day to make sure we were okay. Her daughters even left us a hand drawn picture to welcome us. The area is outside the tourist areas which is nice but the major attractions were easily reached by the bus stop near by. Its where the locals live and eat so it wasn't crazy busy, the food was phenominal and prices were cheap! We would stay here again forsure and only wished qe had booked more nights in this home away from home in beautiful Rome. Thankyou so much Francesca, you made our trip extra special xxx

Very pleasant.

  • 5 of 5

Francesca, the owner was very helpful and kind. She even waited for us at the metro station. She explained how to use everything when we first arrived. The apartment was comfortable, clean and efficient.

Easy access to metro, buses and restaurants. We were able to tour in the morning, have lunch, pause for a siesta then tour in the late afternoon.

We had peace of mind knowing that if we needed anything in that big city we had a helping hand in Francesca.

I will recommend to my friends and family.

Straordinaria, eccellente!

  • 5 of 5

Non possiamo soprassedere sulla straordinaria disponibilità di Francesca dal momento della prenotazione fino al check out. Ci ha letteralmente accompagnati momento per momento senza essere minimamente invadente. Una persona entusiasta che ama ciò che fa. Potremmo dire "una amica". I servizi offerti superano di gran lunga la spesa e i comfort che si trovano nella casa. La zona di Roma è molto bella e simbolica e al tempo stesso piacevolmente popolare. Vicina ai servizi, ai mezzi pubblici e a negozi. La raccomanderei, anzi la raccomando vivamente a tutti.

Trésor bon rapport qualité/prix.

  • 4 of 5

Trés beau logement. Refait à neuf avec goût et bien équipé. Accueil formidable. La personne nous a attendu malgré notre retard de plus de deux heures, nous avions un petit présent qui nous attendait et elle a pris le temps de nous donner un certain nombre de conseil pour les visites, la nourriture et pas seulement "tout est notė dans le book". Le quartier n est certes pas au coeur de la cité mais il a l'avantage d être italien et non 100% touristique.

En résumė, nous le recommandons vivement.

Perfetta per 4

  • 5 of 5

Appartamento accogliente e ideale per 4 persone. Nonostante fosse un divano letto, risulta comodo. Ottima anche la presenza di wifi. Unica piccola pecca: lontananza dalla fermata metro pari a un 15 minuti a piedi. Personale gentilissimo.

Beautiful sunny apartment in Rome Ostiense

  • 5 of 5

We were welcomed to the apartment by our wonderful host with bottles of wine and olive oil. The apartment is exactly what is shown in the photos and was very clean. The bedroom is large and comfortable with a lot of closet space and a big window. The living room has a very comfortable sofa bed, and the sun streams in the large window mid-morning which I enjoyed while having my coffee sitting on the couch.

Our hosts have a fully-equipped kitchen and we were able to make meals every evening. They provided us directions to nearby grocery stores, restaurants, and the laundromat (all only a couple of blocks away). They emailed us partway through to make sure we had everything we needed and responded very quickly when I had questions about nearby services.

We walked everywhere, but could have easily taken the bus or tram because the Piramide station is only a 7-minute walk away. We took a train from the airport to the Roma Ostiense train station and walked to the apartment.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time in this apartment and the next time I'm in Rome I would love to stay there again. It was very inviting and comfortable and we felt ourselves at home. It is a beautiful base from which to explore Rome. I liked it so much I didn't want to leave!

Thank you to our hosts for a wonderful vacation home!
