“Fantastic stay in a great part of Rome”
Reviewed 5 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We loved our six nights in Franco and Federica’s apartment. From first contact many months ago to our final goodbyes we found them to be highly responsive and always helpful.

We took advantage of the offered driver from the airport directly to the apartment – it was so much easier than battling the crowds and the taxi touts greeting every flight and only a couple of euros more than the standard white taxi fare.

The apartment is right in the middle of the vibrant and beautiful Trastevere but with the huge bonus of French doors opening only to an internal courtyard providing totally peaceful sleeping conditions. The queen bed is very comfortable and the bedding is high quality. External shutters on both doors keep the apartment dark if you want to sleep late.

My husband and I shared the apartment with our teenage granddaughters, and whilst it was compact we found it had everything we needed for a perfect stay. The bedding arrangements in the living room are a single bed and trundle bed (neatly housed in the very comfortable sofa).

The bathroom is small, especially the shower compartment, but more than adequate with excellent ventilation. There is a washing machine tucked into the hall cupboard. The kitchen has a full cook top and oven and top quality equipment. The provision of a desktop computer is a bonus.

Absolutely everything is within easy walking distance. We had no need to use a taxi until leaving from Termini train station. There were numerous excellent guide books in the apartment. We found the laminated maps left by F and F outlining shopping, eating and sightseeing destinations particularly helpful.

We would strongly recommend this vacation rental and hope to return on our next visit to Rome.

“Italian hospitality personified”
Reviewed 12 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

From the moment we booked with Franco and Frederica (F & F) we were warmly welcomed and our every question and need attended to.

Franco offered to arrange for pick up from the airport – a mere 7 euros more than the usual 55 euro taxi fare. After a long international flight, this was a much appreciated perk of booking with F & F. Our driver was waiting with our name on a placard and took us directly to our apartment where Franco greeted us.

Upon arrival, and after showing us the apartment, Franco offered maps delineating his favorite nearby restaurants, gelato stands, bakeries and even a walking tour of all the museums (for fee and for free) with Caravaggio exhibits. He kindly made reservations for us at one of the restaurants and answered our many questions. Don't miss Pianostrada the terrific restaurant a mere 50 meters from the apartment.

The apartment has all the amenities. It was clean with air conditioning throughout, welcome after walking for hours on the hot and dusty streets of Rome. Computer with Wifi was extremely appreciated when we realized we’d left our European electrical converter at home. Franco provided a loaner converter for our phones (although one can be purchased on the street for about 5 euros). The light in the kitchen was not working. Although we probably could have done ok without it, Franco insisted on fixing it so we had adequate light in the kitchen. Coffee, with demonstration on how to use the coffee pot, provided Italian coffee every am. Multiple umbrellas provided shelter to venture out despite rain. A multitude of guidebooks and Italian/English phrase book line the bookshelves. And finally although in the heart of Trastevere, which was loud and packed at night with revelers, the apartment was a quiet refuge, with none of the street noise ever audible. The apartment is on the second floor, accessible through the ground floor, locked door, then up a short staircase to the apartment and therefore, very secure There is a safe, but we never felt the need to use it given the excellent security of the building.

Suggestions: While this was not an issue for us, there is no elevator, so don’t rent if you can’t navigate one set of steps (but Franco will assist with your luggage). The bedroom opens to an inner courtyard/balcony. While not excessively bright, there are no room darkening shades, therefore, bring eye shades if you want to sleep in.

We’ve stayed at multiple privately owned properties. Franco went above and beyond in assuring our stay in Rome and his apartment was as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. We’d highly recommend staying at their property.

“Excellent apartment in a great neighborhood”
Reviewed 27 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Probably the best neighborhood in Rome to stay. Quiet yet 20-30 minute walk to major attractions and piazza's. Great variety of local restaurants most within a 200 meter stroll. Don't miss the veal with peas at Da Lucia just around the corner. Great food and service at Marco G's and Osteria Numero 6. Apartment was excellent, single flight of stairs from the street, clean, well stocked (great coffee), good Internet service. A/C worked well and can set the bedroom temp separate from the rest of the apartment. It got up to 34C near the end of our week there and we were very comfortable. The owners are a pleasure to deal with, friendly and professional.

“Nailed it”
Reviewed 11 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

I had become exhausted searching the internet for a place to stay in Rome and was feeling overwhelmed. We had an idea of where we wanted to be and what we were looking for, but I just wasn't feeling it. When I found this apartment on Trip Advisor, it "felt right". When I showed the listing to a friend who has lived in Rome, she said I'd "nailed it", and she was so right! The location is ideal, just steps away from a lively scene, but a quiet oasis once on the charming street where the apartment is. And once inside, completely quiet and relaxing. Frederica and Franco met us with the keys and a wealth of information, all delivered with genuine Italian warmth and flair. Their attention to detail regarding the amenities and their help with airport transportation, restaurant recommendations and reservations (as well as help navigating the wine lists) made for a truly great experience. Wish we could've stayed longer, and whenever we're back in Rome, this is the only place we want to stay! Ciao!

“Nice apartment in a great location and excellent hosts.”
Reviewed 24 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We've just spend five very enjoyable days in Rome - based in Frederica and Franco's apartment in Trastevere.
All the arrangements prior to our arrival were very smooth and efficient. F&F kept in contact with us and organised a taxi to collect us from the airport and leave us off very close to the apartment where Franco met us and brought us to the apartment.
The apartment was very clean and spacious and the kitchen was well equipped.
Despite the fact that we were arriving late in the evening F&F took the time to sit with us and go through all of the material that was available in the apartment to ensure we made best use of our time in Rome. They had created a number of different maps addressing subjects such as points of interest, walking routes, transport routes and the location of supermarkets, ATMs etc. All of these maps were extremely useful and we certainly found them very beneficial.
Trastevere has loads of restaurants so there is plenty of choice close to the apartment for eating in the evening.
