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

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

I could not imagine a more perfect location for our trip to Rome. We were within a short walk to so many of the beautiful sights as well as many quaint places to eat. Should I be fortunate enough to return to Rome, I would not hesitate to stay in this lovely apartment.

Warm welcome and great position

  • 5 of 5

We were very late arriving, due to a baggage handler strike, but Alessandro couldn't have been more welcoming even at 1.00am in the morning and even texted us the next day with details of how we could find a doctor as one of us was unwell. The flat is small but has everything you need and we loved the balcony and excellent view. It is brilliantly positioned with the ancient Roman sites at the end of the road and some lovely street cafes frequented by locals with good food and wine.

Everything you could need

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here the beginning of June 2017. Alessandro was extremely helpful. He arranged for a car to pick us up and bring us back to the airport. Upon arrival, he met us to explain everything and answered any questions we had. If I had a question after that, he responded immediately. The apartment is small, but was perfect for what we needed. He provided us with bread, milk, water, butter, and jams. We didn't cook in the kitchen so it's hard to say how that would have went as only one person could fit. The bedroom and living room is in one area, but enough room to move around. Our favorite part, which I'm sure is the same as others, was the terrrace overlooking the Colosseum. The area has restaurants and a grocery store. We had a fabulous time and really happy to have found this apartment. We highly recommend staying here.

The PERFECT place to stay in Rome!

  • 5 of 5

I've been traveling to Europe for 20 years, and this is the best experience with my accommodations I've ever had.

Alessandro arranged to have a car pick us at at the airport, and he met us at the apartment at a very late hour.

He thought of everything - the kitchen was stocked with essentials, and the apartment was very nice. The view is simply unbelievable - open the large double doors to the balcony, and you have a perfect view of both the Colosseum and St. Peters.

The apartment is surrounded by restaurants, gelaterias, etc., and there is fantastic 24-hour market two blocks away.

5 stars is simply not enough. Absolutely magnificent experience.

There is no other place I will stay now - my next trip will be arranged around the availability on this apartment.

Modest apartment, great view and excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location. It was within an easy 10 - 30 minute walk to many amazing sites. The Coliseum, Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain and more....

Alessandro explained where key restaurants, shops and markets were and we were set! We had many meals out but we also were able to bring home wine, olives, cheese and bread and relax and enjoy the coliseum view. He also made suggestions on how to get around the area and made arrangements for a car service to take us to the airport. Thanks so much for the help!

This area is a great neighborhood to explore on foot, many local eateries, wine bars and restaurants, you could not try them all. We were amazed by the setting - so much history all around you and yet people living their day to day lives. After a few days we truly felt like we belonged!

Better equipped than an Ontario cottage ten times bigger!

  • 5 of 5

Although the studio was as 'cozy' (i.e. small) as described, it was stocked efficiently and (dare I say) lovingly by its owner, Alessandro. No detail was overlooked, from the cell phone for use, to a drawer full of maps and books about Rome, to fresh bread, milk & butter in the frig, plus olive oil, cookies, crackers, spices, coffee, sugar, jam etc. for travel-weary guests who hadn't time to shop.

The bed was super comfortable, and the AC/fan so quiet that we slept like logs, happy to pull back the curtains on the view, which has already been described so well by so many.

The area is convenient -- literally minutes from the Coliseum and Palatine Hill and a 'Hop-on/Off Bus', as well as restaurants, gelaterias, and shops.

Alessandro was attentive, kind, and knowledgeable, clearly taking great pride in his studio and his role as host, both before and during our stay. It was much appreciated.

Two tips:

1. Don't buy Big Bus tickets until you're on board! They went from $30/day in the brochure, to $27 on line, to $19 on the bus!

2. The studio is unabashedly tiny, and very efficient, but it does bear noting that very large people would not be comfortable here. The kitchen is barely big enough for one, and the lift is extremely small. If two very heavy people booked a holiday here, I'm afraid they would find it, to put it mildly, cramped. With luggage added, they literally would not fit in the lift.

That said, we were snug as the proverbial bugs in rugs, and highly recommend this apartment.
