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.
