Why Giovanni Ceccarelli chose Rome

The house is part of a property that my family bought about ninety years ago. Nearby is the house they spent their lives my grandparents, my parents and now it's me, my wife and my two children. The house we rent has been restored a few years ago in accordance with the traditional features.

Good, but...

  • 3 of 5

We were very excited about the house, it all was as in the photos and other reviews. Then came the buts... First we noticed there was something wrong with the electricity upstairs; lights and aircon heating started blinking, beeping and weakening if you didn't have certain switches on and off, but figured (with the help of our electrical engineer) that it was because of the humidity buildup and there was nothing we could do about it. The internet router didn't work upstairs because of the electricity situation so we moved it to the downstairs bedroom where it work perfectly. Then the hot water heater broke and the backup didn't work (naturally during Christmas when all the workers are on holiday, too) but Giovanni gave us keys to his other apartment just around the corner where we could shower and use the washing machine, thanks for that Giovanni!

All in all, we enjoyed our stay since the location of the apartment was good transportation, grocery shopping and eating out wise, and we were there to see Rome and not to bitch about secondary issues.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry for what happened, but probably they were used many electrical appliances at the same time and this has tripped the safety switch located on the control panel. For this reason were not working the lights in the bathroom, washing machine, heating and wifi repeater on the first floor. It was enough to replace the switch and electricity was coming back regularly. Moreover, the problem has never been communicated, otherwise it would have been resolved quickly and easily.About the failure of the boiler, never been before, occurred on holidays and this prevented a quick repair.

Großzügig ausgestattetes sehr geräumiges Haus

  • 5 of 5

Giovanni Ceccarelli ist ein sehr netter Vermieter, der immer erreichbar ist und sich um alles kümmert. Vielen Dank nochmal!

Es gibt einen sicheren Auto-Stellplatz neben dem Haus (tagsüber quasi bewacht, da zu einer Werkstatt gehörig, nachts eingezäunt (man hat natürlich einen Schlüssel).

Das Haus ist sehr gut ausgestattet, mit Fliegengittern, Waschmaschine und Trockner, Mikrowelle, Gefrierschrank, Backofen, Klimaanlage,WLAN.

Bei uns hat das Internet sehr gut funktioniert.

Die Schlafzimmer sind großzügig angelegt, die Betten sind gut, Kommoden und Kleiderschränke sind mehr als ausreichen vorhanden.

Die Lage ist optimal, wenn man auch mal mit dem Auto unterwegs sein möchte, was wir häufig genutzt haben. Aus der Stadt heraus ist man mit dem Auto sehr schnell auf dem Autobahnring.

Verschiedene Buslinien sind in Laufweite; auf zumindest 1 mal umsteigen sollte man sich jedoch einstellen, so dass man meist mindestens 45 Minuten unterwegs ist, bis man an der jeweiligen Sehenswürdigkeit angekommen ist. Das ist aber nicht weiter tragisch, die Busse fahren bis in den späten Abend hinein.

Günstiges Geschäft in ca. 200 m Entfernung, ebenso Pizzaverkauf auf der Strasse, Eisdiele und riesiger Obst/Gemüseladen... super um sich selbst zu versorgen.

Uns hat es sehr gut gefallen, es war mehr aus ausreichend Platz für 4 Erwachsene und 2 Kinder und wenn es sich irgendwie einrichten lässt kommen wir gerne wieder!

Meglio non si può trovare

  • 5 of 5

La casa è corredata di tutto e ottimamente funzionante. Buoni i collegamenti con il centro città sia in autobus. Per noi che avevamo auto al seguito è stato molto facile: lasciavamo auto a parcheggio metro B eur Magliana (1,50 euro al giorno) e da questo punto raggiungevamo qualsiasi destinazione cambiando a volte con metro rossa.

Il signor Giovanni è persona discreta e gentile. Consiglio a famiglie numerose o a due coppie con bambini al seguito o tre coppie senza figli.

Thanksgiving Vacation in Rome

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our large family. Giovanni met us as soon as we got to the property, gave us a tour of the house and explained how everything worked. He was wonderful when we had a small problem and helped us solve everything accordingly. The house is about an hour away from city center, but we were given explicit instruction on buses and trains on how to get to the main piazzas. We were also given a map of the neighborhood with several restaurants and cafes within walking distance. Giovanni also gave us a phone in case there were any problems and we needed to get in touch with him. The beds were comfortable and the house itself was very spacious. The only downside of our visit was that internet was a little hinky and worked sporadically. But, this was not enough to mar our visit, as internet is sketchy all over the city. Giovanni was a wonderful host and we will definitely be staying here again on our next visit to Rome!

Owner's Response: Hi, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay in Rome and in my house. I'm sorry about the problem with the internet connection, but it was caused by a malfunction of the telephone company that took several weeks to resolve. Now finally the fault has been repaired and now works regularly.
