“Comfortable and a great location”
Reviewed 16 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

My husband, daughter and I stayed at Piccola Londra for 6 nights and it was extremely comfortable and convenient, in a great location. Paola had organized a pick up for us from the airport which is a big bonus. She and her daughter Francesca, two lovely ladies, warmly welcomed us and met us on arrival and showed us through the apartment. They speak very good English and explained where everything is kept in the apartment and had a mobile phone, lap top and maps available for our use. They also explained what is in our area and where to get tickets for the local No:2 trolley (tram). The trolley stop is a two minute walk down the road and takes you directly to the Piazza del Popolo area which can link you to the Flaminio metro station or you can walk from there to discover a lot of Rome, including the Spanish steps. It's fun walking the streets and there's always something wonderful to see in Rome. The nice touch was that Paola and Francesca left us fresh bread and milk with butter and jam in the fridge. There is a supermarket opposite the apartment and you can see it from the kitchen window. Piccola Londra is on the 3rd floor and has a small elevator for your luggage if you need it. It's very clean and comfortable with free wi-fi/internet access. There are two large bedrooms with a very comfortable queen bed in one and two single beds in the other. Both rooms have quiet air conditioning. There is a large wardrobe to hang your clothes, a washer/dryer, iron & ironing board and all amenities needed. The kitchenette has cooking equipment, a gas cook top, fridge and a microwave. There are local restaurants if don't want to cook. The bathroom is modern and exceptionally clean. The apartment is situated in a quieter area of Rome with the occasional noise of the trolley and sometimes the social gathering of people down below, but the windows and the shutters seem to cut out any noise. We enjoyed leaving the windows open to welcome the breeze and fresh air and felt very secure. Piccola Londra is like a small home away from home and we missed our little home once we continued our travelling. Thank you to Paola and Francesca for your lovely hospitality.

Home away from home. Extremely clean and well stocked apartment. Owners very hospitable and provided advice needed to easily get around Rome. Very clean and well stocked upon arrival. Close to all major tourist attractions, particularly as tram and public transport are well within walking distance. Lovely tranquil neighborhood. Will definitely select Piccola Londra for next visit to Eternal City.

“Highly Recommend Piccola Londra! It's a home away from home”

people found this review helpful

We (me, my husband and two teenagers) recently stayed at Piccola Londra for four nights and everything was perfect. The owners treated us like family and went out of their way to help with our vacation. They assisted us with airport transportation so we didn't have to worry about finding the place, and immediately made us feel at home. They even provided fresh milk and bread so we would have breakfast the next morning. There is a grocery store across the street which is extremely convenient and by taking the tram just down the street, everything in Rome is accessible. It is a very safe neighborhood and some of the restaurants in the area are the best, not like some of the tourist traps we made the mistake of visiting. I couldn't more highly recommend this apartment and the owners. We hope to be back soon!

“Excellent apartment close enough to the tourist sights without being surrounded by tourists.”

We stay here for five nights and were very pleased with the cleanliness of the apartment as well as it's proximity to the sights of Rome. The tram runs down the street and it is short ride to Piazza del Popolo. The owners Paola and Georgio are very helpful and go out of their way to make your stay a pleasant one. There is a grocery store, deli and restaurants all within one block. It was nice to stay in a local neighborhood instead of being in a hotel surrounded by tourists.

“A very pleasant appartment in a convenient location.”
Reviewed 25 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

Had a lovely few days in Rome staying here with my husband and two grown up daughters.

The apartment was clean and pleasant and the beds were very comfortable. The very friendly owners arranged a taxi from the airport and met us on arrival. They gave us a mobile phone to contact them if we had any queries or problems and there is a laptop and WiFi in the apartment to access the internet.

The kitchen was stocked with tea, coffee and basic food items for breakfast. There is a supermarket nearby and a choice of restaurants and pizzerias. The frequent trams take you in to the metro, or link with other lines to the Vatican or various parts of the city.

One tip - book your tickets to Villa Borghese before you leave home. We found there were none available for the next 6 days !!!

“Excellent apartment and location made our holiday truly enjoyable”
Reviewed 14 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

Apartment owners and family made us feel as if we had arrived home for a few days...everything in the apartment clean and well presented. Use of cell phone and laptop were really appreciated. Taxis from and to airport efficiently arranged.

Great location, short travel time on public transport to central Rome areas and local amenities more than sufficient for our needs. Will be back in Rome again at the Piccola Londra,

“Great location. Modern, comfortable apartment. Wonderful owners.”
Reviewed 10 October 2012 for a stay in October 2012

I stayed at Piccola Londra with two work colleagues/friends during a recent weekend trip to Rome. From the very beginning, Paola was exceptionally responsive via email. She arranged for a car to pick us up at the airport, which ended up being an excellent decision, as it may have been a bit complicated to navigate to the apartment on our own via public transportation the first night. Paola's husband met us at the apartment to give us the keys, a tour, and some recommendations.

The apartment is just lovely. One bedroom has a queen bed and the other has two twin beds. Everything was very clean. The apartment is renovated and very modern. There was plenty of additional bedding, towels, etc. available in a closet in one of the bedrooms. The kitchen was stocked with basic dishes and cookware. There was even a combination washer/dryer in the kitchen, which would be nice for a longer stay. The owners left us a bottle of wine, as well as some basics for breakfast. There is a grocery store directly across the street, which was perfect for stocking up on a few more items.

Paola's husband gave us several recommendations for local restaurants. He also explained the tram and metro system, as well as where to buy tickets. The tram stop is literally a two minute walk from the apartment, and from there it's between 5-10 minutes to the closest metro stop. At the end of the tram line, where one exits to get on the metro, there is also a cab stand directly on the other side of the People's Plaza. We found that using a cab was pretty afforadable and was convenient when we weren't going somewhere directly on the metro line. The owners also left a tour book, lots of maps, and an umbrella for our use while we were there. Even more importantly, they left a local cell phone that we could use. This proved invaluable as we struggled to get our own roaming to work on our first evening in the country. The wireless internet was fast and reliable in the apartment.

Paola and her daughter met us to check out the day we left. They also arranged another car to pick us up and take us back to the airport. We had a wonderful stay in Rome thanks to the graciousness of Piccola Londra's owners, and the lovely, comfortable accomodations there.
