The flat is on the 3rd floor (with a lift) and has 1 bedroom with a double bed + a sofa.. Suitable for a couple or a 2 friends. It has a separate kitchen and a large bathroom. Both kitchen and bathroom are completely renewed. Air-conditioning on request. Free WIFI in the apartment.
The process of agreeing to rent the apartment, meeting to get the key, and then leaving were easy and pleasant. We stayed for a week the end of December until January 5th, leaving at 3 in the morning. Mari helped arrange for a taxi to take us to the airport so we didn't have to worry about transportation issues. As other posters have noted, there are ample food options including food markets and traditional grocery stores within walking distance. The kitchen included an esspreso maker, toaster, and the basics to prepare all our meals. The futon bed was comfortable and the down cover kept us warm during the unseasonable cold weather. The apartment does overlook a busy street but there are earplugs for those who are sensitive to traffic sounds. Since the metro is so close, we were able to explore in the morning, come back for a quick lunch, and then head out in another direction. For the price, this was a very practical way to see Rome!.
I spent a wonderful week in Mariliana's flat. It is exactly as you would expect from the photos - very cosy, relaxing and spotless! The location is great - directly opposite the metro station and close to several bus routes. You can easily walk to the Vatcian area and then onwards to the old centre. There is also a good selection of shops close by (bakery, cheese specialist, tavola calda, large supermarket, post office etc.).
Marilana is also a wonderful host - she was quick to respond during the booking process and very welcoming and helpful upon my arrival and during my stay.
I would definitely recommend the flat and would be glad to stay there again - hopefully sooner rather than later!
Grazie mile Mariliana
Our stay in this appartment really made a difference in our holiday in Rome. We are a family of three ( one boy age 7 and a 13 year old girl) and the space the appartment provided us was more than enough and it really made us feel at home. As a female travaler, with two young children I was very anxious coming to Rome on, my own but Mariliana's ( the owner )freindliness made me fell at ease.
The area of the apartment was very resorsful by having a metro station just acros the road, a local supermarket just around the corner, many gelatarias and one of Rome's best pizzeria's. I would deffinatly recommend this appartment to anyone wanting to visit Rome and for my self I am hoping to return to Rome in the near future.
We are a family with 2 little girls(2 and 7 years old) which spent the winter holiday in this lovely apartament.We want to thank dear Mariliana who was just perfect! Very clean and lovely apartament,just in front the underground ,a little walk to Musei Vaticani, comercials area,a nice gelateria to the first corner,etc
Sure I will return to Mariliana's apartament...two weeks was not enough to visit Rome and enjoy all the beauty!
Many thanks, dear Mari!
We stayed at this property in May and found it to be extremely comfortable. The appt is small but very suitable for a couple and well provisioned. The owner is very lovely and helpful. We found it very well located for everything we wanted to do and the Metro is just across the road and cheap and easy to use and there is a big supermarket around the corner as well as a fresh market within easy walking distance. Would definately stay here again. Loved it.
If you would like a really nice, convenient place to stay in Rome, then this is it. I went with my wife and thirteen year old son. It was only a few a few minutes walk from the Vatican and also was only 150 yards from the nearest Metro Station. If you like walking then you could really go to most place on foot. If not then the Metro is so convenient with trains every few minutes and a weekly ticket for all the Metro trains and buses for Euro14.00. The apartment was clean and tidy with a small but fully functioning Kitchen and good size shower room with toilet and wash basin. Towels for three were provided. The lovely, friendly lady who owns the apartment met us with the keys as arranged, and was very helpful. The area around the apartment had many coffee bars, ice-cream parlours, restaurants, and shops and a biggish supermarket. Having been to Rome before I found the apartment and location really convenient and would recommend it as an ideal place for a couple or a couple with one child/teenager.
Central. Vatican area, few metres from the underground stop 'Cipro'. 7 minutes by tube to piazza Di Spagna. Walking distance to St Peter's and Vatican museums. 14 minutes by tube to Stazione Termini.
