My parents had stayed with Max & Lavinia in late April ( do apologize for the late review ). And I could not recommend ENOUGH to every body about this beautiful establishment! It's not only a beautiful, spacious, and convenient place to stay in Rome, what makes it so perfect is the PEOPLE who runs it.
As my parents speaks NO ITALIAN at all and are well into their 60s, Max made sure 200% attentive service from DAY 1 when we made inquiry of their suite(note that we had not even BOOKED yet), many helpful e-mail had been sent by him some doesn't even concern his business, but more general information about Italy.
After we made our decision he helped us all he could, such as airport pick ups, taxi drivers; recommended tour operator, guides, so my parents can have a smooth trip in Rome even without speaking the language.
And when they arrived late at night by the apartment, my parents' favorite yogurt and fruits were waiting for them at the apartment for their breakfast next day. He helped them to set up internet connections so we can check on our parents from overseas, walk them to bus stations in the morning to get tickets; called their next destination's hotel ahead to get the traffic directions.... The list can go on forever, so I am just going to cut it short! You have to experience it to believe!!!
We are overwhelmed to find some one like Max & Lavinia, normally a good service to an accommodation is a bonus; but here I must say, the beautiful and clean suite that they run is simply an extra bonus to THEIR CORDIAL HOSPITALITY!!! We are lucky to be staying with you. And next time any of our family traveling to Rome, AL CENTRO, oh, no, I should say which ever apartment Max & Lavinia is running will be our choice to stay!
