In general It was a great experience staying with Rita e Simona. The appartment its beautiful, the room is so big, the kitchen is well equipped and the most important: everything is always clean and It is so near to the Termini station. I would suggest to put the charge of cleaning in the final price so when you arrive you dont have to pay even more that your have already paid.
Hello Federico, thank you for your nice review.
Regarding the final cleaning fee I would agree with you if it was not indicated in the description of the house, which it is, actually.
Furthermore, in order to avoid any misunderstanding, I always send an e-mail before to remind it, which I did with you also....
I decided not to include it in the final price on the website to avoid me, but also my guests, to pay a commission on it.....
So, just wanted to specify it....
We had a great weekend at La Bella Sosta! Simona was very friendly, helpful and always fast to reply. The apartment is very nice, the room itself big and clean. The apartment is located in a residential area, with nice coffee shops around and great pizza at the other side of the street!
We had an amazing stay at La Bella Sosta! Simona was there to welcome us, made everything clear, answered all our questions and gave us lots of tips for our first visit to Rome. The flat is beautiful! Large room, super comfortable. Breakfast is included which was a massive bonus for us. The area was good, reasonable walk to all the sites and exciting areas.
Can't recommend enough, fantastic place!
