“The extra mile”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2013

First of all, Simona is a great host and she was willing to "go the extra mile" to make our stay pleasant. And pleasant it was!

Hakka House is conveniently located a few steps from the Ponte Lungo station, only a 10-15 minute metro drive from the city center and the main attractions. The area is safe and has some nice restaurants, arguably the best tiramisu (Bar Pompi), delicious pizza al taglio (Re di Roma Pizza) and a very cozy wine bar (Enoteca Bonomi) within a few blocks.

We stayed in the blue room which was suberb and the green room seemed equally comfortable. The house is what you see in the website pictures, spotless clean and the attention to detail is remarkable. Breakfast was wide in Italian standards (e.g. milk, cereals, yoghurt, toast and some fruits in addition to the delicious brioches/cake/pie and coffee).

What can we say, it's hard to think of anything negative. The value is unbeatable. This is the place to stay in Rome. Thank you Simona.

Room Tip: Choose your favorite colour theme (green or blue). Both rooms are equally big and comfortable.

Staying at the Hakkahouse was an unforgettable and amazing experience. The place is on par with a 5 star hotel. The host, Simona, provided breakfast on a daily basis along with a fully stocked refrigerator of drinks. Simona also helped us in making reservations and providing us valuable information to our travel experience. The house is located in a great area, very close to the metro station (about a 1 min walk). Simona also came in daily to clean the house and made our beds! I can't say enough about this place, highly recommended!

Thank you Simona!

I recommend Hakka House if you want to go to Rome. The location is very convenient and clean, just 2 minutes away from Ponte Lungo metro station. Simona is wonderful host. She provided a car to take me from airport to her apartment. Water, milk, juice, etc were filled every day. House was cleaned every day. She also provided map and information for traveling in Rome. I love Simona and her house.

We went to Rome with 2 couples and booked our stay in the Hakka house. The appartment is big enough and it's very pleasant to have a privat bathroom! The provided breakfast was a nice extra! The site is also excellent, at a 10 minute walk from the coloseum, but there is a metrostation in only 50m from the doorstep! Moreover, Italian food is our favorite, so we were blessed to find a delicious restaurant next door, Buono!
Simona, the owner, is a wonderfull lady who helped us with nice tips to get the most out of our trip! It was amazing!!

We're a family of four from Brunei, and we stayed at Hakka House for two nights for our Roman holiday. The place was exactly as depicted in the pictures - spacious, pretty, clean and well equipped. Ponte Lungo metro station was literally just around the corner, and it was an easy connection to all the main sites in Rome.

Simona was extremely kind, friendly and helpful, especially with accommodating our weird schedules which were well off the said check-in and check-out time. Simona greeted us the moment we arrived at the apartment, and kindly explained to us where the good Roman sites are, and how to get there. She also had recommendations for restaurants and such, and offered to make reservations for us in case we wanted one. I can't stress enough how amazing this place is, and how kind of a host Simona was. We will definitely come back and stay here again if we're fated to come back to Rome.

I've stayed with my wife and 2 children from 2 October, 2 nights. Most of all, the overall room condition was so excellent and clean. 2 beds were clean and tidy. 2 toilets and shower facilities were also superb.
The metro punte lungo was 30 - 50 meters away from the house, which satisfied my family's needs.
The price was very nice and competitive considering the quality simona provided us. Simona, the hostess was very kind and told us everything about rome tour.
I recommend simona's apartment absolutely.
