Mi aspetto correttezza, rispetto della civile convivenza con gli altri condomini ed educazione soprattutto nel consegna della casa nelle condizioni di pulizie idonee allo stato nella quale l'avete trovata alla consegna.
Amazing doesn't even begin to describe our experience in Rome! Fernando's home provides everything you could ask for and more. Great location, Spacious, clean and equipped with everything from wifi to air conditioning. Upon our arrival (which unfortunately was at 1.30am due to flight being delayed) Fernando was still there to greet us and show us around the apartment. He answered all questions and was always available to help out if needed. Couldn't ask for more. Highly recommend staying here.
Fernando made us feel very welcome. We had very good communication leading up to the trip and on the day we arrived. He helped us with our bags, showed us everything we needed to know about the flat and gave us useful a overview of local shops, bus stops, how to use the public transport and some suggested routes around the city. He was kind enough to provide a beautiful bowl of fruit and some other useful groceries. He even helped navigate me back to my car rental return and helped us with our trip back to the airport.
The flat is very comfortable, and very spacious. It has traditional features like the beautiful patterned stone floors, but also all modern conveniences (a very new kitchen with a big fridge/freezer and dishwasher, a spacious bathroom with washing machine/iron/ ironing board/clothes dryer). The WiFi appeased the children. We really appreciated the air con as we visited during a hot August.
The location is excellent. First, it was practical because there were several coffee bars, shops and restaurants in the adjacent streets (including maybe the best gelateria ever!) as well as a large supermarket 3 blocks away - easy walking distance. Second, it was practical because the central sites were all within walking distance (we did use public transport a few times but mostly because of the heat).
We arrived in Rome in a rental car and were able to park outside while we off-loaded luggage (for driving in to Rome I'd recommend coughing up for some phone data and using phone sat-nav. We tried without but got tripped up by a couple of confusing road junctions and some networks of one-way streets).
It's perfectly feasible to walk to the flat from Termini, but not recommended if you have lots of luggage or if it's particularly hot!
Nous avons été idéalement reçu par Fernando: gentillesse, de nombreux et très bons conseils pour visiter Rome (ligne de bus, parking...), panier de bienvenue. L'appartement, fidèle à la description, nous a parfaitement convenu (famille de 7 personnes), très bien situé, dans une rue avec toutes les facilités( parking, commerces et bus), il permet d'appréhender Rome à pied ou en bus selon la fatigue de chacun.
Un atout non négligeable: il se trouve à deux pas de l'excellente gelataria La Romana!
Fernando's home was a perfect place for our family to stay. Very spacious and clean and comfortable. The bedrooms were big and airy and the bathroom and kitchen were very modern and well equipped. A very comfortable seating area invited us to take advantage of the international tv.
Fernando was there to meet us when we arrived even though we were early. He gave us lots of helpful information about the local neighbourhood and the best way to explore Rome.
We were given full instructions on how to use all the equipment in his home even down to his coffee pot which I loved. His home is very well equipped and we took advantage of the washing machine. He also provided those little extras like tea and coffee and dishwasher tablets ... much appreciated.
We would not hesitate to recommend Fernando as a host and his home is absolutely wonderful. We would not hesitate to stay here again when back in Rome. A fantastic experience and a great introduction for us to Airbnb!
Thanks Linda for the review, This is the second time that you write a guest review before me. Although you're still on vacation you found the time to dedicate to me, I thank you indeed, you have been true gentelman, you have had the respect of my house and have enjoyed my availability. This is the true meaning of AIRBNB "accommodate people not only for money" You really are a nice family, respectful of my house. When you return to Rome I can accommodate you with great pleasure and you will always be welcome.
Great Description. Wonderful Host. Fantastic Location.
Thankyou Fernando for letting us use your appartment and sharing your knowledge of Rome. It was everything we expected and thanks to your guidance very easy to find our way around.
I would recommend your appartment to anyone visiting Rome.
If we return to Rome next time I will be back in contact.
Fernando was an excellent host, arranging transportation from the airport for our family of 5; giving us a great overview of the neighborhood; offering tips on getting around Rome; and checking us out quickly and right on time. The apartment was exactly as described - very clean, quaint, and in a very safe building and area. We will definitely stay with Fernando again on our next trip to Rome.
ALL THE REVIEWES ARE TRUE!! Fernando and his home are perfect. He is quick to respond to emails and texts and was waiting for us with a cab to get all 7 of our party to his home. We were welcomed graciously into his home and he had a welcome basket with fruit, drink and pasta. He went over all the ins and outs of the home and mapped out routes to the major attractions. Gave us advice on purchasing metro tickets and helped us get back to the airport when our trip was over.
We chose this home because of his positive feedback and its proximity to a metro station. The station is about a 10-15 min walk, depending on how fast you walk. The attractions like Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, Pantheon and Piazza Novona were all within walking distance. Took Metro to Vatican and the Colosseum.
If this is the area you are looking to stay in, then stay here and you will not be disappointed. The home was clean and spacious with local and international TV. It is on the 4th floor, but there is an elevator. Plenty of places to eat around the area and we cooked 2 meals in. A washing machine and an endless supply of hot water for showers.
So do yourself a favor and stop looking at other places and stay here where you will be treated like family and have a wonderful Rome experience.
Thanks for everything Fernando! You are the Best!
