  • Me and my mum had a lovely time staying at Gea's place. The arrangements were very well made for our arrival and Gea was responsive throughout, including with extra bits of advice regarding transport etc. The apartment itself is great, with all the necessary amenities plus more. It's also in a very nice location, with some nice shops and restaurants nearby, and close to public transport for accessing the main tourist sites.

  • Have you ever been to a rented property and been annoyed at the total lack of provisions? No, salt, pepper....washing up liquid? Well if you stay at Casa Donatello you will have the complete opposite experience. Gea is incredibly generous, she leaves you absolutely everything you need for your stay, condiments, tea, coffee, spices, pasta, washing powder, she even left toothpaste and soap. It became a game to find something missing and we lost! Even sandwich bags were there! Add to that the lovely, homely apartment in a perfect quiet location with great shops and restaurants nearby, why would you ever want to stay anywhere else? Thank you Gea!

  • Gea was very friendly and helpful. She was out of town when we arrived and her friend met us there who didn't speak english but she told us this beforehand. My husband and I stayed there with my parents. The apartment is very homey. It is beautifully decorated, lots of books and everything you could need. The shower was great but unfortunately there didn't seem to be enough hot water for all four of us :( The neighbourhood was lovely and we enjoyed the local restaurant and their stuffed potatoes. We arrived at the central train station around 5pm and it took us about an hour on the bus to get to the apartment with the traffic. We didn't try figuring out the metro so took the taxi a bit and it wasn't too expensive. It was around a 30min walk to get to the main attractions, it is a little further out so we usually left the apartment for the day instead of coming back for a rest and going out again because it was too much time going back for a rest. But this is only because we were in Rome for too short a time and trying to fit a lot in! I would definitely stay at Gea's again and relax more in Rome because it was nice to be out of the tourist areas.

  • I spent just over a week in Gea's apartment near the Flaminia and found everything to be perfect. The apartment was exactly as described, clean, with everything working properly.

    The location is very convenient given close access to the #2 tram line, a supermarket, and an organic food store on the next block.

    The apartment has a "cozy" feel given the art, books, and other decorative items, in contrast to a sterile hotel room.

    All-in-all, I would book another stay in Gea's apartment without hesitation!

  • This is a lovely flat.
    Very clean; and pleasant neighborhood; walking distance from ultra-modern, marvelous Zaha Hadid's museum: MAXXI and Renzo Piano's - Auditorium Parco della Musica.
    Comfortable bed in quiet bedroom.
    I really enjoyed staying there and would recommend it!
    Gea is very friendly and helpful person.

  • Excellent apartment, spacious, wonderful host, it had everything we needed. the apartment is spotlessly clean and secure. Although not in the direct tourist area it is in a lovely neighborhood and I think that this made our stay better and more authentic than if we were in the busy part. It is a quick 5 to 10 minute train (the train is on a loop so you only ever wait a couple of minutes for the next one) to the centre of town.

    We really loved this place and would stay again.

  • 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!!
