We just wanted to express how much we appreciated your help and Mariano's help.
My mother-in-law used the wheelchair on the days when walking became too difficult. She would not have been able to enjoy the Vatican without it.
Mariano was wonderfully pleasant and very quick to respond to our issues. He had the bed set up for my sister-in-law before we got back on the first night and, when we realized the baby was not sleeping well because the crib did not have the right mattress, he made sure the right one was there for us the next night. He was also very helpful in making sure that we had a vehicle that was large enough for all of us and our luggage.
We stayed at this apartment for one week in August, 2016. We were 8 people, 5 adults and 3 kids.
The location is wonderful, about 5-7 minutes for Piazza del Popolo and in a nice residential area with good shopping and restaurants. The fantastic gelateria on the corner was a real hit!! Almost everything we wanted to see and do was within walking distance.
We also truly appreciated the responsiveness to our queries and the general helpfulness of the owner Paulo, and doorman Mariano. It definitely made our stay more enjoyable in terms of finding restaurants, orienting ourselves to the city, figuring out what to see and perhaps what to skip. Especially with a larger group, and with children, this was invaluable.
If I were to offer a criticism, it would be the spacing and layout of the apartment itself (which we appreciate is harder to fix). We found having one family meal with our size of group difficult because of the spacing around the main table. The fish tank takes up a lot of room and isn't really nice to look at. Also, the table is in is quite a narrow space to begin with. We were also a little disappointed by the sleeping arrangements. We understood this to be a 4 bedroom apartment but the reality is that it is only 3. There is an additional area that can be used for sleeping off the main living area, but that isn't ideal. The result was that we had 4 people in one of the bedrooms, which we found a little tight. There is also rather limited closet/hanging and drawer space for your own clothes.
On the plus side, there were ample washrooms (3 in total) and air conditioning. That was a definite plus in August! Also the kitchen was well stocked with the main things we needed and all the appliances (with the exception of the clothes dryer) were in good working order. The apartment was clean and generally well-maintained. We certainly did not suffer!
In the end, we enjoyed our stay. I would recommend this apartment and would certainly consider going back.
My family of six 4 adults and two children from Chicago spent five days in a real Roman apartment. We loved the experience and the location of the apartment. The Tiber river is one block away.
It is about a 15 minute walk to the Vatican and maybe a 20 to 25 minute walk to the Trevi fountain. It is as advertised. Two large bedrooms and one smaller bedroom and another section that you can use by using curtains to Use as another sleeping area. There were two ensuite bathrooms. There was a large living room, very nice Satellite tv and good air conditioning. It has a Small kitchen and refrigerator which was adequate for our stay since we ate out most of the time. There was a nice little grocery store two blocks away. We got gelato every night at the corner gelato store. Wonderful!
Plenty of sitting room and eclectic
Lighting and decorations. It is old and comfortable. It is not the Ritz but it was a fun experience that my grandchildren will remember.
Suggestion-a list of local restaurants and how to get to them would have been nice.
The apartment was big enough for our two families (4 adults, 5 kids). The apartment was clean and there were lots of towels provided. The apartment also had AC units which was appreciated in the hot July weather. The apartment was central to major Rome attractions so we were able to walk everywhere. Paolo was kind enough to arrange a transfer to the apartment and Mariano the doorman was very welcoming. There is a supermarket just a block away so it was nice to make simple breakfasts and eat in for a few dinners. The best gelato in Rome was right downstairs from the apartment, we recommend the lemon flavour! Our kids loved staying in the apartment as it felt like our second home so we were sad to leave after 5 nights.
I was apprehensive about renting a stranger's home but staying here makes me want to rent more homes like this one for our future adventures.
We stayed at the property owned by Mr. Scimonelli from July 1-July 7 2016.
We found the apartment to be perfect. It was clean and comfortable. We had a large group of people and we all were comfortable. It was so close to all the sites we wanted to see. We were able to walk every where. We especially appreciated the air conditioning as it was mid 90's that week in Rome. The only down side was the dryer was not working but we still were able to do laundry.
We found Mr Scimonelli to be very helpful. He did not get our message regarding the new arrival date and called us to check up on us. He and his doorman were very helpful at suggestions regarding getting around town.
We were close to market, gelato shop, and a pharmacy.
We had a wonderful time in Rome, I have already recommended this place as an option to friends who may be traveling in the future.
I would stay there again if I find myself traveling to Rome again.
Thank you for a great experience
We were very pleased with this apartment; we felt immediately at home ; for our two families it was confortable, nice furnished and well cleaned.
The three bathrooms were very helpful with our teenagers.
The only thing we missed, was a new cafettiera Bialetti, because the ones which are there are very old and should be thrown away. There is a Nespresso machine, but in Italy we love using a Bialetti !
The apartment is very central, between Vaticano and Villa Borghèse, so you almost do everything by foot. As it is near the Tevere, we walked down and up this river with pleasure.
The nice street Cola di Rienzo, near the apartment, is full of boutiques, cafes and supermarket, so it's very practical.
The owner and the doorman are very nice and helpful, they gave us very good advises of restaurants; between them we loved the Trattoria da Luigi and the pizzeria La Francescana.
Finally, I should recommend this apartment, we loved our stay in Rome.
P.S. I should add that the window of the last room doesn't close well at the top, so you ear a lot the noise of the car's during the night; it should be repair.
This apartment is located within a 5 minute walk from where I was born. When bringing my family of 8 to Rome for this visit, I wanted them to experience what Italian living is really like. This apartment was perfect. We all felt like it was our home.
The apartment is located in a great neighborhood. It is within walking distance of the Vaticano, Piazza del Popolo, Piazza Navona, and two convenient Metro stations for access to the Colosseo, not to mention the best gelateria in Rome, La Romana, which is just next door! The owners of pasticceria, Sanzini, just around the corner, were so gracious and their pastries were to die for. The shopping along Via Cola di Rienzo, around the corner as well, is some of the best to be found in Rome. Great selection and prices.
We enjoyed the layout of the apartment. The bedrooms were good sized and the beds were comfortable. The 3 bathrooms were perfect for the eight of us. We found the kitchen to be well equipped and the washer and dryer were a godsend after several days of travel.
Although Paolo was unable to personally meet us, the portiere, Mariano, was very helpful in getting us situated and arranging for transportation to Fiumicino.
Bottom line...wonderful experience, highly recommended.
Apartment Piazza della Liberta is a lovely spacious Rome apartment, ideally located right where the Tiber River meets Piazza Del Popolo,a grand part of Rome, with a great shopping street, cafes, restaurants and supermarkets, right in the neighbourhood and walking distance to all monuments..
