“Great apartment in a great City”
Reviewed 2 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We stayed at the Minerva over Easter 2016 and had a great vacation. The apartment was very spacious, well equipped and very clean. The owners Theresa & Wolfango were there to greet us on arrival and show us around the apartment. They also provided a map with the main attractions marked and a number of restaurant recommendations. Whist the local transport systems are all nearby (trams, buses and underground) we decided to walk so we could take in all the sights and this was very easy to do from the apartment. There was some graffiti on the street walls as we arrived but do not be put off by this. We found the area to be safe and with a supermarket directly across the road and some very good restaurants within a few minutes walk we were very happy with the apartment location.

We would definitely recommend the Voyager shuttle service from the airport. Marcello the owner was a star. Booking before we left was very easy, the price was €60 from the airport to the apartment and the same back again (2 adults and 3 teenage children + bags). Marcello met us in arrivals with a name board and took us right to the apartment door. He even gave us his mobile number in case we had any problems whilst in Rome ! Going home he called at the apartment on time and helped load the bags. His email address is info@shuttleserviceroma.com.

We would definitely recommend this apartment.

“Miss ”
Reviewed 3 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

A clean spacious apartment, in a good location. The apartment was ideally located for walking to the colluseam, and has good restaurants and cafes within a reasonable walking distance. The owners were really helpful on giving advice on good places to eat and sent lots of useful information on Rome before our trip.

“A beautiful Apartment with everything you could ask for”
Reviewed 16 February 2016 for a stay in May 2015

Marie Therese is a fantastic host and landlady, and worked so hard to ensure that our stay of three days was the best possible. She is outstanding in terms of providing information to travellers, - directions, public transport, shopping, sight seeing, and made us feel absolutely welcome. The kitchen is set up with everything you could desire, in such a way that we had to buy very little of the basic kitchen necessities for a three day stay. We will undoubtedly stay there again.

Oh hello! So good to hear from you after so long, thank you for the amazing review, I am humbled and bowled over by your enthusiasm. I am so sorry for the dramatic problem upon your arrival in Rome, and I hope that we and your embassy were able to help you back to a normal situation so that you could enjoy your holiday here. It was a real pleasure meeting you, and hearing of your memorable travel stories, too, thank you for sharing. We are happy to hear that the apartment was a help in making your stay a good one, and we would be very happy to see you here again. No two trips to Rome are ever the same and one always finds more unknown aspects of this ancient city to enjoy. Thank you and best wishes to you,

“Beautiful, well-equipped apartment in a great location”
Reviewed 14 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

My wife and I stayed here last week (Feb 2016) and we had a fabulous holiday. The apartment had everything we needed to feel at home - TV, stereo, WiFi, kitchen (fully equipped), bath/jacuzzi, washing machine, amazing book collection, CDs and DVDs. There is a supermarket across the street, a restaurant on the ground floor and a gelateria on the next block. Car parking is around the corner, which was not included in the price but their service was outstanding. Mary sent us a wealth of detailed information on things to do, places to see, and how to get around the city. When she welcomed us to the apartment she talked us through everything we would need for our stay. I would recommend it without hesitation.

Thank you very much for the kind review! We are glad that your stay was such a good one. Yes, as you can see, the apartment is in the city center, and we do not have our own garages for our buildings, so we cannot offer it in the price even if we wanted to, as parking is on the street by the hour , 8am-7pm for 1 euro per hour, or in city parking garages, to be dealt with on a case by case basis with the owners of the business, (who we don't know) One garage is just around the corner for small-to-medium cars and there are others a few blocks away for larger ones, all with about 18 euros per day price, I am writing this here for future guests who may wish to come with a car. It's good to hear that the information we send is useful for guests. It was a pleasure to meet you both and we hope that you'll come back to see more of this ancient and fascinating city in the future.
Regards,
-Mary Therese and Wolfango

“Beautiful apartment, amazing hospitality”
Reviewed 17 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

person found this review helpful

We arrived at Rome in the middle of the night, and the lovely couple Mary and Wolfgang patiently were waiting for us. We can feel their hospitality as soon as we open the lift door, they're waiting for us and greeted us. We don't feel like a stranger in Rome.

I booked the apartment a month before our departure date, and along the way Mary sent us so many information about the apartment and tips about Rome. She will recommend you good restaurants to enjoy authentic Italian food, as well as bar, or some bakeries.

The Apartment is beautiful, located in the center of Rome, and very close to the Termini Station and Colosseum. Across the street you can also find one of the oldest ice cream parlor in Rome which became our favorite instantly. The apartment has everything we need. What i like the most is the collection of books they have, which I can read in my spare time. The bathroom is spacious, clean and fully equipped. WIFI connection is available, and sufficient for our need.

Mary and Wolfgang, are one of the reason our vacation in Italy had been a great success. I would highly recommend this beautiful apartment.

Hello ,

Thank you very much for the very kind review. It was also a pleasure for us to meet you all and help you in your stay here, it is fun for us too and we love meeting people from all over the world, it is the next best thing to traveling. Thank you for all the compliments - my husband worked very hard to create such a beautiful apartment and we work hard to maintain it to top standards for our guests, to have the best stay here possible. I am so glad you enjoyed reading the collection of books, which we also have for children and teens, in different languages. Many thanks for offering to be a guide to your city, that is very kind of you! We hope you can come back again to Rome, maybe when your children are older, so they can enjoy even more of the city , as there is so much to see and do here that one or two trips is never enough, as I am still learning about new things here after all this time, in this ancient city. We hope your trip to Pompeii also went well, in such a fascinating place. Many thanks for choosing to stay at the Minerva, please come back to Rome soon! Thank you ,

Best Regards,

-Mary Therese and Wolfango
