A wonderful flat!

  • 5 of 5

I had the most marvelous time staying at Michela's lovely flat in the Campo Fiori area. Everything was perfect and exactly as described online. I was able to stay in Rome for 9 days and after this experience would never want to stay in another neighborhood--the location is just perfect for exploring any neighborhood of Rome while also have some fantastic bakeries, restaurants, wine bars, and gelaterias just around the corner. Michela was so kind and helpful from beginning to end, and I cannot wait for my next trip to Italy!

Perfect home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in Michela's apartment for my 30th birthday trip to Rome from 10/2--10/09/17. It was absolutely perfect and was just as pictured from her photos. It was clean and was equipped with the basic essentials we needed to cook. Though the kitchen and bathroom were on the smaller side, it was manageable and we didn't encounter any issues. We were able to purchase groceries and stock the fridge and cook and microwave as needed.

Michela was a gracious and perfect host! She arranged limo service for us to be picked up and dropped off at the airport. She was available via Whatsapp to chat in case we had any questions about the apartment or needed help finding local eateries and attractions.

The apartment is located in center of Campo di Fiori, and is walkable to many of the major attractions. Please be advised, it is not a short walk, maybe around 15-20 minutes. So if you do not enjoy walking, it is advised to catch a taxi which are only a few steps from the apartment. Everything you need is literally around the corner!

It really and truly was a great experience and I will definitely stay here again should I venture back to Rome in the future! Thank you Michela for making our trip that much more special :-)

The best location in rome

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is lovely. Full of antiques and very Roman in feel. It is small but well-equipped. Thank you for the scissors, duct tape, and great plugs. The wi-fi was excellent. Michaela was very responsive and easy to contact. She stayed in touch to answer questions. This is absolutely the best location in Rome. We could walk everywhere and we are 70.

Perfect location!

  • 4 of 5

We all know that location is key and this one has IT. Lovely area, close to all that is important for your stay and close to bus transport if you do not care to walk. The apartment is quite unusual with many antiques and the decor is very formal Italian. There is quite the history that goes with the owner. (a treat to read after you are there). The bathroom is great. The kitchen is very, very, tiny and mostly for a breakfast. Who would want to cook with so many wonderful restaurants and eateries a stones throw away. I was alone, 70 year old female and felt completely safe, even walking to a Taxi at 4:00am in the morning to get to the airport. The hostess is wonderful, kind, well prepared to receive you.

An absolutely charming apartment in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

Michela responded in a timely fashion to all correspondence. The apartment was exactly as described and quite spacious for the 3 of us. The apartment is in a quite and safe location. The best bakery in all of Italy is about 2 blocks away. We are looking forward to our return to Rome and hope to stay here again.

We LOVED this apartment

  • 5 of 5

The location is ideal, with restaurants and markets within blocks. It's also very close to most tourist attractions. We would stay here again.

Oh and we loved having a washer and dryer, very helpful.
