Appia Antica Resort

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 July 2014

What a wonderful stay we had at the Appia Antica Resort. It really felt like home. The apartment we were in was beautifully and tastefully decorated with style and consisted of a living room, two bedrooms, kitchen (with dishwasher and laundry washing machine – which came in very handy!!) and a bathroom with a great, great shower. An added bonus was that the kitchen was ready for us with goodies for breakfast and lunch, and wine waiting for us. What an added treat.

When we arrived, we were greeted by Maurizio, Luisa and son Alessandro, who helped with our bags and showed us around. Maurizio and Luisa spent a lot of time with us, making sure we were comfortable and informed about the local sites – and we saw them spending a lot of time with other guests as well, making sure they knew where to go, history of various sites, where to eat.

The garden is beautiful and very relaxing. Rome can be a very frantic place, with lots of tourists, buses, the metro, sightseeing and a lot of walking around. When we were tired, we were able to come back to the Appia Antica Resort and relax under the shade of the trees in the garden and read, relax and take a rest, listening to the birds in the trees and the occasional splash of the koi in the koi pond. This is a great benefit at the Appia Antica Resort.

The Appia Antica Resort is less than one kilometer from the ancient Appian Way (the Appia Antica). It was so close that we took several walks and also went jogging on the old stones of that ancient Roman roadway. That is something that most tourists never get to do. So when you stay at the Appia Antica Resort, make sure you explore the Appia Antica!

Also, the WiFi was exceptional. Other places we have stayed had WiFi, but it never seems to work that well. At the Appia Antica Resort, it was working great. The whole family was able to use it.

We looked at the other apartments at the Appia Antica Resort, to be informed for future visits. They are all well-appointed and look very comfortable. They have done a wonderful job with this place and I would highly recommend it.

Dear Bruce D,

It’s never too late to say: thank you, mostly if it is about something happened in the Eternal City.

We are all very happy to hear that you had a pleasant stay here with us, as that is the goal we all work towards. We want every person that comes here to have the best experience we can offer, so we put all our efforts, be it a lift to the near metro station or a little bit of complimentary comfort food in the fridge, or simply the desire of sharing a glass of wine while chatting in the garden. And then it turns out that sometimes, the word "effort" means "with love".

If you felt welcome, as if at a friend’s house, then why not to come again?

Our stay in the Appia Antica Resort was the best we ever had. If you had to place it in a category with stars where 5 is the max, it would get a 6 at minimum.
The facilities in the appartment are amazing. Everything you can imagine is there, from a dishwasher to an exellent 'rain' shower. The rooms are beautifully decorated. Even the fridge is filled with (free!) food and drinks so you can focus on the beautifull things in Rome in stead of shopping for groceries. It is also located in a very nice part of Rome where there is lots of green and it is not so crowded.
And not only the appartment is amazing. Maurizio and his family are so kind and passionated. They are always ready to help you and give you lots of tips to get the maximum out of your visit in Rome.
I can recommend Appia Antica Resort to everybody and if I 'm going back to Rome myself I would not hesitate one second to book here again.

Dear Bart-Belmans,

Time flies and sometimes, we like to read past reviews from our friends, scrolling down words and thoughts coming from the past. Latin people used to say: “Verba volant, scripta manent”. spoken words fly away, written words remain. There is always something that makes us smile and give us strength to go on In this bunch of written souvenirs. A big thank you to you, dear Bart_Belmans, you are part of this bunch coming from the past, but the feeling you had while here at AAR will be Eternal, like this city.

We wait for you to come again.

I was unable to visit Appia due to a last minute family emergency. I assumed that I had lost all my money as I had made a non-refundable reservation. I did not even contact the hotel to ask for a refund. When the resort contacted me the day prior to my expected arrival and I informed that we were unable to make the trip I was pleasantly surprised to be offered a full credit against a future stay within the next year.

I also received an email shortly after to confirm this position. I am very grateful to Appia Antica for this most generous offer. I cant wait to make the visit on a later date.

Spent a fantastic week at this resort - it was spotlessly clean and high class quality Italian style and design - Maurizio and family could not do enough for us they were very helpful including dropping us in Rome and a guided tour of areas that we would not normally have seen (including Appia Antica itself and the Roman Aquaducts) - It is more like being invited to stay with an Italian family who were on hand to help when ever needed.The suggestions and help/ info pack was appreciated and I would very much recommended the local restaurant suggestions - A fantastic location great place that we dont think could be beaten - we will definitely be back. Thank you.Simon & Kate

We stayed only two nights at the Appia Antica as the final stop on our trip, it was kind of an after thought but we are so glad we did; what a place. Our real regret was that we could not stay longer. Maurizio and his family were so warm and instantly made us feel at home, explaining right from our arrival, all the local sights, how to get there, maps, tours etc. We'd been to Rome before, but if this was your first time, what a great way to start. Appia Antica Resort is a meticulously presented stay, complete with gardens, pond, trees, grass, a really relaxing environment hidden behind a busy street on the hidden part of Rome that few tourist really bother to go to; The Old Appian Way, the road that transformed Rome and created the great expansion of its empire 2000 odd years ago, full of ruins very few people get to see.
Yet, its still with easy travel to the centre of Rome and the apartment we stayed at (2 adults and 2 teenage children) I would safely describe as the best place we have ever stayed at, anywhere it terms of value for dollar, functionality, comfort and style.
Plus as an added bonus, Maurizio gave us a packed four hour tour of the Appian Way and surrounding sights and he even shouted us a cafe and cake at a local bar along the way.
When we go back to Rome, we now know where to stay, we have found a haven amongst the ruins.
A great place for a family, with or without a car, we had a car and because it is easy access to the Roman ring road, it made for a very fast and easy arrival and quick access straight to the airport, much less traffic than other parts to Rome.
Thanks Maurizio and Maria-Luisa, it was a quality two days which we hope to extend next time.

Angelo, Rosa & Family

Room Tip: The apartment for 4 was great, we had a look at one for up to 10 people, wow that was like a house.
