Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Amazing appartment in an excellent area of Rome
The appartment has everything you need (and even more!). It’s an excellent option if you are going to stay five days or more at Rome. The area is nice and quiet, and it is close to almost everything (walking or by subway). The attention of Maria, the hoster, is perfect. She has communicated with us always, answering our questions and giving us recommendations about the fantastic city. Of course, I highly recommend it!

Amazing
A vast flat in one of Rome's best (if not the best) regions. It is so close to the centre of the town that you can do almost everything, just by walking. It made my experience in Rome better and I highly recommend it to anyone. Also, the owner is great. She made my stay comfortable and provided me with anything I needed.

Apartamento com excelente localização em Roma
Amplo apartamento com boa localização, e muito bem equipado. Maria Luisa foi muito amável e simpática, providenciando tudo para que tivéssemos uma ótima estadia. O apartamento fica a uma curta distância do Vaticano, cerca de 15 mim a pé até a Praça de São Pedro, tem um comércio variado nas proximidades, além de ser perto do Metrô, o que facilita o deslocamento para qualquer ponto da cidade. Apesar de ser localizado em prédio antigo, tem elevador e fica numa área tranquila.

I would like to be the OWNER of that lovely apartment. Gostaria de ser o proprietário do apartamento.
First of all - Maria Luisa is the best hostess that I ever met. Secondly, but not least, the apartment is really "lovely", huge, charming, well located, airy, with large windows in every room, period furniture, lift, in a secure and beautiful area, near Lepanto metro stations (360 meters), three supermarkets, lot of restaurants and bars, stores, The Vatican, at the same time is silent, with everything clean, with all we need inside it, as kitchen well equiped, two huge bedrooms, soft mattresses, nice bathroom with a comforting shower, clean towels...

Perfect in every way!
The flat is excellent. Location can not be beat, close to many bus routes and the metro but best for walking into Central Rome. I stayed for three months and wished I could stay forever. Everything needed is there. Kitchen is well equipped for cooking, all utensils, pots, pans, dishes glasses, everything. Washing machine worked perfectly. Shower is one of the best and biggest I have come across in Rome. It is safe, secure and very comfortable. However the best advantage of this flat is the hostess, she always goes above and beyond too make you feel welcome. She provides the latest information about the goings on in Rome and Italy, provides your with a local cell phone and answers any questions when you call. I have stayed with her numerous times and refer friends and will continue to. Anyone looking for a great spacious unique Truely Roman place to stay, this is THE place.

Great hospitality - great location
For the second time we stayed in this apartment - our family of 2 adults and 3 children. The apartment is big and everything works perfectly. The apartment is located so it is very easy to get around in Rome - whatever you feel like walking or taking the public transportation.

Wonderful Apartment in the Prati Neighborhood.
Maria-Luisa, Thank you very much for the wonderful apartments. Everything needed was in the apartment, from the ability to good meals, to doing laundry while out visiting the sites. The location is a 5 minute walk to the Lepanto metro station and you can walk anywhere in Rome from here. There is plenty of shopping in Prati neighborhood of rome, clothing stores, grocery stores (Pan supermarket), fresh food markets (Mercato Trionfale), coffee bars and restaurants are everywhere. You are not in a big tourist area so take advantage of the fabulous local restaurants around the apartment. The restaurant across the street we did not care for, but "L'Aquila D'Oro" which is around the corner was so much fun we went back a few time its on Viale Giulio Cesare 55. There are 2 bedrooms the larger bedroom has a king size bed which was comfortable and a single bed, and the 2nd bedroom has 2 single beds. The kitchen is fully stocked, and the bathroom has the towels and toiletries. Shower is large by Italian standards and fit me (im a bigger guy) just fine. Water pressure is good and there is plenty of hot water. The apartment is located on the 3rd floor and the complex has a lift so you don't need to walk up the steps if your tired. Its quiet and there is a restaurant located on the ground floor and their kitchen fills the air with a wonderful Italian food scent when windows are open. Maria-Luisa has a cell phone you can use while you are there and was kind enough to book us a ride to and from airport. Thanks you again Maria-Luisa. The worst part of the whole trip was having to leave. I am always sad when I leave Rome. Chuck and Melanie Hake Erie, PA USA
