Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Alessandro,

we loved your apartment,and we wanted to thank you for the bottle of wine you left for us.We enjoyed it immensely watching the Colosseo light up at night.We found the neighbourhood to be a delight-close to Metro and bus,and good little restaurants and mercatos and prices lower than what we saw elsewhere.Again thank you for your hospitality.We found it unusual that there were not visitor comments on the VRBO web site.We will be sending a favourable review to them.Thanks again

Ciao,Geoff and Karen Bell

Great Apartment - Excellent location

  • 5 of 5

What a great little apartment in walking distance to all the major historical attractions. To be able to see the Colisseum from the balcony was wonderful especially at night. The apartment is perfectly furnished and includes a satellite TV feed that picks up English channels and the kitchen, though small, has everything you need. Alessandro was a great host who met us at the apartment when we arrived and ordered us a car to take us to the airport at the end of our stay. I would highly recommend this apartment and would go back there in a heartbeat.

Great location, wonderful host!

  • 4 of 5

The location is only a couple of blocks from both the Colosseum and the Metro station, with numerous restaurants within a 5 minute walking distance.

Alessandro met us at the place and explained everything to my wife and I as is customary. Shortly after he left however, our situation changed such that we could unfortunately no longer stay there. I emailed Alessandro the next day to relay what had happened fully understanding that the deposit was the only thing we were entitled to, but instead he gave us a FULL refund.

We are very thankful for Alessandro's generosity!!

Awesome apartment within steps of the Colosseum

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was so wonderful as was the owner Allessandro. The pictures explain the view but not the great local neighborhood with gelato, take-away restaurants, and full service restaurants. Allessandro met us at the apartment and showed us how to use the air conditioning, wifi (very strong) and satellite TV with a few American news stations. He also pointed us to the local grocery and a great little produce stand. He provided staples like coffee and tea, as well as a local cell phone loaded with a few minutes. Customer service like this is exceptional anywhere, much less Italy! We walked past the ruins of a gladiator school every day on the way to the Metro, Colosseum, the Roman Forum, Palentine Hill, and Circus Maximus. All were within a 15 minute walk. We used both the hop-on, hop-off bus and the metro for transportation, both stop at the Colosseum.

The kitchen is small but adequate for anything other than a gourmet meal. The street is noisy, but if you close the blinds to the terrace and the kitchen door, the noise is greatly reduced. Well worth a little street noise to get up and overlook the Colosseum while you make coffee and breakfast. The apartment was spotless and exactly as described and more. We have already recommended to travelers in Florence that were heading to Rome. Thanks Allesandro! We will be back!!

Great location with an amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was perfect for our needs! It is small but it is well appointed; is a short walk to the Metro; and to be able to see the Colosseum from the bathroom, balcony, and kitchen was a treat! The host, Alessandro, was wonderful! He always responded promptly to our emails, went above and beyond answering our questions, and even assisted us with some transportation arrangements. I would highly recommend a stay here and we hope to return ourselves some day! Thank you, Alessandro!

I never got around to writing a review for this beautiful accommodations. We visited last September...This was our second stop on our 5 week trip through Europe and this was the BEST rental ever! It is the PERFECT location! A block from the coliseum... literally! We walked to gaze at the beauty of it every night after having an amazing meal in one of the great restaurants right downstairs! The pictures do not even do this suite me! And Allessandro...the best host ever (we stayed in 6 rentals and he was the BEST!). Take him up on the offer of the driver that he can get for you - totally worth it! We WILL be coming back to Rome and will definitely stay here - FOR SURE - this suite will MAKE your trip unforgettable- I promise!

Charming Roman Experience

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Rome! First, Alessandro was so helpful! He booked a car for us from the airport that was less expensive than Uber and was waiting for is just outside the baggage area. Then, the apartment was perfect. VERY clean. It was HOT so we appreciated the A/C. Fully stocked kitchen. Very close to the Colosseum and, if you want to get out of the crowds, you're walking distance (10 min) from a great little neighborhood just North of the Colosseum. All in all, a wonderful stay.
