About Alexandra

I started this vacation apartment rental business few years ago just for fun. Now, five years later, I manage several properties, the majority of which are nearby the heart of Rome. My flats for rent are, with no exception, in pristine conditions. I visit all of them on a regular basis, to ensure my guests will receive the highest level of hospitality and the attention to every single detail. I am proud to say that I always strive to personally answer to all the emails I receive from future and past customers and take every question or request very seriously. I look forward to seeing you here in Rome, the Eternal City.

Fabulous location and great apartment

  • 4 of 5

The location of this apartment was fabulous. Turn right out of the road and you see the Colosseum. Left and there's the metro!

The apartment was clean and had the basics for a great 5 night stay. Unfortunately, I had thought it had a washing machine and was disappointed to find I must have been mistaken. There's a laundry service very close by, but with two boys it's a pain not to have a washing machine in the unit when traveling. The closet/drawers in the master room were huge and a great bonus to be able to fully unpack. So often short stay places do not have adequate storage to completely unpack and it can make a difference to how settled you feel.

The internet is a little unreliable. Coming from Silicon Valley, we probably have always-on high expectations, but if this is a factor, it can be frustrating.

The accommodation is secure and the area felt very safe. There was a metro station Cavour, just a short walk away, so the location CANNOT be beaten.

The accommodation is tricky in the fact that two of the rooms are loft style, so little/no privacy and one room is above the living room so it makes evenings tricky if you need to put a child in that room and want them to sleep uninterrupted while you enjoy the living room.

Also I would not recommend this accommodation for kids under 5-6 yrs old. The stairs to the lofts are steep and not well protected, so it's a bit nerve wracking to have young kids sleeping up there.

The owner was fabulous. Very responsive, accommodating and really helped us with a transfer to and from the airport, which was a reasonable price when you consider what a train would cost. Also the van was extremely spacious for 4 people plus luggage.

To sum up, we really enjoyed staying here, the location was PERFECT and the apartment was good value for the money. With boys of 6 and 8.5, the location so close to bars, restaurants, laundry, Colosseum and the metro was excellent as we walked and took the metro. We only used a taxi once.

beautiful apartment, quiet, in wonderful neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Spent 4 nights in Rome. This apartment looks new, is located on central courtyard so is very quiet, and provided all the amenities one could need (except red wine glasses). We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Neighborhood has several excellent restaurants as well as easily accessible grocery stores. Metro an easy walk away. Alex was very easy to work with, and set up a ride to airport for us at the end of our stay. Only issue was she nor her surrogate were there at the apartment when we arrived, but her surrogate did arrive within 10 minutes. Also, while layout worked for us, it is not a true 3 BR, as 1 bedroom is a loft over the main bedroom, and the other is a loft over the kitchen. Thus, if you are looking for the privacy of a true 3 BR apartment, this would not be your location.

Our Rome Stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the apartment. The location is FABULOUS and so convenient to all the sights we wanted to see. It was really neat to walk down to the end of the street and see the Coliseum, especially at night when it is beautifully lit. Our large bed was very comfy and the kitchen allowed us to make meals and save money. Our adult son slept in the loft over the kitchen. It was dark up there but worked out. We really appreciated being picked up at the airport after a long flight from MN and being dropped right at our door, and being met by Allesandra. Looking out the big windows and seeing the top of the church and other apartments was great, as well as the quietness of the location. Another plus was the shower - modern and lots of hot water. That hasn't always been the case in places we've stayed, so was appreciated. Having one more comfy chair to sit on in the evening would have made it even more perfect, but we appreciated the large dining room table.

Perfect base for exploring Rome

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic apartment, a perfect base for exploring the city and all the tourist sites; the Colosseum is five minutes one way, with the Forum five minutes the other. Apartment was modern, well stocked, clean and really quiet. We cooked in a couple of nights and the kitchen had everything you could want. Monti is a great part of the city with a brilliant atmosphere, some lovely restaurants close by, wine bars and quirky shops. We felt very safe throughout our stay. Alexandra was really helpful, excellent communication before and during our visit. Would highly recommend.

Location, location!

  • 5 of 5

Awesome location, 5 minutes from Collosseum, close to the train station and underground, authentic local restaurants and a superb wine bar within minutes walk. Streets are clean and safe, we felt very comfortable. Most major sites within walking distance, Trevi Fountains, Spanish Steps, Phantenon and many more.

Very clean, modern and quite in a noisy city, a doorman to great you and assist with directions.

Wish the air conditioning was a little colder but that was just a minor thing.

Alexandra was very accommodating and hospitable. Would come here again on our next visit!

Nearest Airport
10 Kilometres
Ciampino, Fiumicino
Nearest Train
3 Kilometres
Gare central, Termini
Car: not necessary

We strongly recomend you take a taxi from the airports. The fix rate of 40-50 euro is much more reasonable that the trains and the buses up to the Central Station Termini and much more confortable!

Public transport are close by, the metro Cavour is round the corner, the same for many bus stops, typical Italian restaurants, bars and other art craft shops.

Shopping in the street and nearby: Italian fashion, food, handicraft.
