We had a lovely stay at La Bella Sosta! The apartment is in a beautiful building in a convenient location-- within walking distance to all the major sights, shops, restaurants, and very near Termini station.
The room was both charming and comfortable. The room has high ceilings and two large windows from which you can see the local Romans scurrying about on the streets below. Simona has excellent taste-- the room and the entire apartment are decorated in a rustic yet playful manner.
Along with the photos, the noted amenities are accurate. The WiFi was fast and we really enjoyed using the kitchen (which is kindly stocked with Italian coffee, cookies, cereal, and pasta).
Our host, Simona, was great! She is very responsive, organized, sweet, and hast several great recommendations. You'll love her.
Nice apartment, near transportation
The host left basic food which was very nice
I recommend this place
We really enjoyed the place. very nice apartement. The host was great and helpful. Thank you
We had a wonderful time at this apartment. It has a perfect location, the place is nice and clean, and it's not too noisy despite being in a centred location. Simona was very welcoming and she helped us out plenty with our vacationing plans and sightseeing. We definitely recommend it!
Absolutely fantastic location, so close to so many of the main attractions, we could walk to the old town in 20minutes through some beautiful areas of Rome.
Lots of fantastic restaurants around.
The apartment itself is lovely, and you are provided with cereal and bread for breakfasts and also some pasta and basic ingredients for lunches and things. A really wonderful experience, couldn't recommend this place highly enough.
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!
