Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Imagine if you had a friend in Rome with a large, beautiful, and fully stocked apartment in Rome, and they asked you to house-sit. That was what it felt like to stay in Casa Donatello. The apartment is huge, sunny, clean, and everything worked well. What is more, is unlike the typical minimalist, Ikea-decorated AirBnB rental, this apartment was stylishly decorated and well set up. The kitchen was set up with olive oil, balsamico, salt, sugar, coffee, etc. and we loved cooking there with Italian ingredients while listening to the great CDs in her collection (John Coltrane, Iggy Pop, etc.).

    The location is not central, and it costed us about 55 Euros for a taxi from the airport, but we appreciated the fact that the neighborhood was quiet and safe. It is also not far from some tourist spots (Spanish steps, Piazza del Popolo), but in general you will want to take the tram in, so that you can really explore the city.

    Anyway, Gea's apartment really made our Rome vacation special. Strongly recommended!

  • This is a great apartment in an excellent neighbourhood. I stayed in Gea's wonderfuld apartment for 16 days and it was the perfect choice for me. The apartment is large, bright, ultraclean and very well equipped. The shower in the bathroom is worth a special mention - it is really spacious. I ran the Rome Marathon during my stay and the thought of that shower kept me going during the last couple of kilometres. The neighbourhood around via Donatello and Viale Vignola is brilliant. It has a very authentic local Roman atmosphere and is still not very far from the city centre (a brisk 15-minute walk to Piazza del Popolo or you can take the tram). The area has several good restaurants, e.g. Osteria Sireno and Pizzeria Vignola, and plenty of local shops, including a well-stocked organic supermarket and a good small Enoteca right across from the apartment.
    Gea is a great hostess, she is very kind and informative, and our communication during the booking process and my arrival/departure was faultless. I will certainly choose Gea's apartment for my next stay in Rome. In fact, I cannot wait to return to Rome and Casa Donatello. Highly recommended!

  • This was the first trip to Rome for my sister and I. It was an amazing experience. The apartment was fabulous. Spacious, clean, well equipped, and in a a great location. Having two separate bedrooms, reliable wireless, and a large bathroom was definitely a plus. One of my favorite things to do each morning was to open the large windows, take in the fresh air and people watch. Everything we wanted to do was within walking distance. We found a nice and inexpensive grocery store just a few minutes away as well as great eating establishments. The tram and metro was close by for our day trips, although we found out that we could comfortably walk to the Trevi fountain, Spanish steps, and Pantheon. Gia was a great host and I loved using airbnb!!

  • The apartment is great, clean, comfortable and nicely decorated. My husband and I had a great stay in Rome. The apartment is perfect, is located in a quiet area near the apartment there are cafes, restaurants and supermarkets. When we arrived to the apartment everything was perfect. Gea is very concerned and attentive. excellent host.

  • Our family of four (kids aged 10 and 7) had a lovely stay at Gea's apartment, and really enjoyed our 5 nights in Rome. The apartment is very clean and well equipped, and the images shown are accurate. Gea is really very helpful, and while we didn't meet her, she answered any questions very quickly, which was appreciated.

    Via Donatella is in a lovely area, with great restaurants locally, so after a day of walking around in the historic part of the city we were more than happy to try out the local restaurants. We loved the tree bar in the gardens across from the tram stop near the house - ideal as kids can play in the park while parents enjoy a cocktail or two. Our tip is definitely go with the public transport option for getting to and from Ciampino airport. Although taxis clearly display 30 euros from the airport to the centre of Rome, via Flaminia area does not count as part of the historic city zone, so you will pay 55 - 60 euros.

  • Lovely stay at Gea's place. The flat is a nice and relaxed home away from home with all the amenities you need. Its in a nice, leafy neighbourhood near the river. The tram is incredibly easy to take to the beginning of the old town and takes on 5 minutes. Gea helped us out with Taxis as well, which was greatly appreciated. Very recommended.

  • We had a wonderful 7 days at Gea's apartment in Rome which is exactly as described, and as shown in the pictures. I was very clean. The positives for us were the extra bedroom. The main bedroom was very large, the living area comfortable and the eat in kitchen was comfortable. The flat is located in a nice quiet neighborhood, close to the tram, which comes every few minutes to go into Piazza del Popolo (and the Flaminia metro station). If you need a flat in Rome, this is a very, very good choice.!! Location was wonderful, just far enough from tourists but close enough to get to all the main attractions. Gea was a very pleasure, friendly and receptive to all our questions. We would highly recommend staying at her apartment for anyone thinking about traveling to Rome. If you plan to visit Rome, you must stay on Via Donatello! We know we will stay there again, if the apartment will be available next year. Thank you Gea!

  • Gea is a wonderful host, she promptly replied to our emails with questions we had prior our travelling and was waiting for us at the apartment when we arrived.

    Her apartment is very clean, in a quiet neighbourhood with easy access to local transport links eg the bus into Termini or the tram to Flaminia leading to popular tourist sites eg Piazza del Popolo, The Spanish steps and Fontana di Trevi. It is also conveniently surrounded by good restaurants and a supermarket.

    I would highly recommend staying at her apartment for anyone thinking about traveling to Rome.

  • Gea's place was the perfect stay! The location was wonderful, just far enough from tourists but close enough to get to all the main attractions. Gea was a true pleasure, friendly and receptive to all our questions; it was a bonus that she met us at the apartment when we first arrived and helped to make the start of our trip that much better. Her place was very clean, comfortable and spacious in a very nice and safe neighborhood. We would definitely love to stay there again.
