Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • We loved this apartment. It was comfortable and spacious. The terrace was wonderful. We met with Patrizia and she was very helpful! Public transportation was very close by and easy to use. There were several shops nearby and we enjoyed looking around! Thank you so much!!

  • Apartment was large and very clean. It was on the top floor of an apartment building (4th Floor) with a lift. Had a huge outdoor area which overlooks green parkland. Very quiet area. We had a car and had free parking on the premises. Shops and restaurants nearby within walking distance. Bus was 5 minutes from the apartment. We caught the bus to the Metro (10 minutes ) .We loved the location as it was far enough out to be away from the tourist hype but close enough to have easy access to all the major sightseeing places. Patrizia did the check in and check out with us. She was lovely and very helpful. Highly recommend the apartment. While there were only two of us, because of its size, it would accommodate two couples or a family very easily. Loved our time there. It really felt like a comfortable and welcoming home away from home.

  • A great apartment for several people. It was clean and nicely located, the center reachable by bus or bus+metro. Patrizia gave us a great reception and the apartment was perfect with the huge balcony and enough space inside as well as outside to sit together in the evening with a group of people.

  • We spent our family holiday in Rome, and we were looking for a place which is spacious enough for four persons, from where the main spectacle can be reached easily and which is calm and safe too. This accomodation was perfectly fit our needs. A parking place was provided for us, so we could consider our vehicule to be secured. However it was said that the bus stop can be reached in 10 minutes it was not more than three. :) A few stops till the metro and you find yourself in the heart of Rome. :)

    The flat looks just like on the photos and there's a new air condition system installed too.

    Last but not least we have to mention that Patricia, our host was very gentle, she even agreed to come to the check-out on Saturday at almost 5 a.m. without any complaint.

    I can only recomment this appartment due to its localization, comfortability and the kindness of Patrizia.

  • Our trip to Rome was brief, and the apartment was pretty good. The neighborhood was located outside of the busy part of Rome. Accessing the parts of Rome that we wanted to see was easily accomplished once we figured out the public transportation system (bus and subway). There is a balcony that gave a beautiful view of the area. The apartment was clean and well kept.

    One item of caution is there is not air conditioning throughout the apartment, only in one bedroom. It was rather warm during our stay and the other guests were mildly uncomfortable due to the temperature in the apartment. Another area of concern was that two of the guests in my group do not move around so well, and bathing was difficult for them because the size of the bathtub was extremely small.

    Overall, the stay in the apartment was acceptable. Patrizia was fabulous to communicate with and was very accommodating. She was prompt and assisted us with all of our questions.

  • This is a very accomodation for several person and family with children. The house is new and clean. One has access to the balkoni which is amazing. There are shops junt below the apartment. Bus station is close to as well. We had happy time and good accomodation. Thing were clean and landlord is kind. We had access to parking just close to the house. I advise it for a group travelling given the proce is good and house is large and also suitable for family with children.
