Great little place in a very convenient location. Maria-luisa did everything possible to support our trip. Highly recommended.
Rome never disappoints . However , if your lodging is not satisfactory, any trip may be ruined. That is not the case with this roomy, quiet, very comfortable flat. Well furnished and close to transportation, restaurants, and shopping areas.
In addition, Maria Luisa is not only friendly, but very efficient and eager to help you have a wonderful holiday.
I Highly recommend it.
The apartment is very close to St Peter's and the Vatican Museums. It is on the first floor and is very spacious - a wide corridor with rooms leading off it, including a very practical kitchen. The flat looks out onto two courtyards (rather than the street) which means that despite its busy location, it is extremely quiet - we never heard any noise from the street or the neighbouring restaurants,
The bedroom is large with a very comfortable double bed with generous wardrobe space. The sitting room has a table and chairs and a lot of information and guides about Rome - including two detailed ones which we have left for future guests! And in January/February, the heating worked perfectly.
The location is perfect, We regularly walked across the Tiber and into the heart of the historic centre, but if walking became too much, then the flat is close to the metro Line A, numerous buses and a tram.
Being on the tourist trail also means there is a huge range of bars, restaurants, pizzerias and gelaterias nearby - but also good shopping for locals as well. The nearby Mercato Trionfale is exceptional in its size and range of goods. The slightly closer market on the Via Cola di Rienzo provides more than adequate choice for everything you might normally need. And there are various mini and large supermarkets nearby as well. We enjoyed cooking Roman meals in the apartment!
The owner of the flat, Maria Luisa, was exceptionally helpful. She arranged for a driver to meet us at Fiumicino and for the journey back. She met us at the apartment and showed us round; and was very happy to discuss any matters about the flat, the area etc. The apartment was serviced once a week and this also ensured for us an extremely comfortable and effortless stay. We were there for a month but didn't manage to see or do everything we had set out to do so we are hoping to return in the relatively near future. We were lucky that the weather was generally dry (only one day of fairly persistent rain) and the temperature for walking about was perfect. As well as sightseeing, we took the opportunity to have Italian lessons at Studio Italia, five minutes' walk away - again highly recommended.
So all in all a wonderful experience which we hope to repeat!
The apartment is located right across from the Vatican and close to the metro. We enjoyed shopping at mercato Trianfale and bought fresh foods from the many stalls and then cooked at home... it was a wonderful experience! Despite some rain we managed to see so many wonderful sights and with the metro stop so close to the apartment it was very convenient for getting home in a hurry. The rain passed quickly most of the time and if you bring a raincoat and umbrella the rain shouldn’t stop you ... you can dry off quickly at the apartment! We highly recommend this apartment for location and everything you need for home comforts! Thank you Maria Luisa!
My spouse and I recently returned from a month-long stay at the apartment, and we cannot speak highly enough of the experience. The apartment itself was great: large, clean, bright and quiet, with comfortable furnishings and a well equipped kitchen. We were especially happy to find a washing machine, which was a major plus considering the length of our trip.. Once a week our linens were changed and the apartment thoroughly cleaned -- a perfect arrangement for us.
We also enjoyed the apartment's lively location, with interesting street life, good restaurants and excellent shopping all nearby. A major highlight was buying our groceries in the Mercato Trionfale, where the stalls seem to go on forever and offer an incredible variety of fruit, vegetables, breads, pastries, meats, pasta, etc. Also not to be missed is a stroll up and down the Via Cola di Rienzo, with its wide variety of high-end and mid-range shops. (Make a point of being there for the evening passeggiata for an especially interesting experience.)
A 20 minute walk from the apartment brings you to the Tiber, and depending on which direction you take, to Castel Sant Angelo or to bridges that lead to the Piazza del Popolo or the Piazza Navona. The Vatican, of course, was virtually on our doorstep, and we enjoyed walking to St. Peter's at odd hours. We recommend arriving early for a truly spiritual experience inside the church, as well as visiting after sunset to spend some comparatively quiet time in the square after the crowds have gone.
As far as our hostess is concerned, we have nothing but praise. Maria Luisa arranged for a car (with a very pleasant and efficient driver) to meet us at the airport at our request, and she was waiting for us at the apartment when we arrived. She then showed us around the place and clearly explained everything we needed to know. She thoughtfully provided us with an information sheet listing places to shop, eat, etc., and she made it very clear that if we had any questions during our stay, we simply had to contact her.
In short, Maria Luisa's attention to detail and her consideration went a long way toward making this vacation one of our best. We highly recommend the apartment.
The owner was easy to communicate with. She showed up early to meet us. The apartment is well appointed and a good size. The kitchen was fully equipped and we made breakfast daily, except for or last day. We went downstairs to the restaurant right outside the building entrance. The owner provided information on all of the local stores. There is plenty of tourist information in the apartment. The WiFi also works well. There is a small TV that we never even turned on.
The location is a couple of blocks from The Vatican. There is a taxi stand a half block away. The building is quiet and secure. I would definitely stay here again.
We had been to Rome before but wanted to stay on the other side of the river so was pleased to find this apartment. It is metres away from the Vatican museum ,St Peters and just a bit further to Castel Sant d'Angelo. It is possible to walk to nearly everything else. Numerous places to eat and near to bus , tram and metro.
The apartment is in a nice residential block and is comfortable. We appreciated having a bit more room than a hotel room gives you. The owner is lovely and very helpful.
