Sehr gute Lage und überaus freundlicher Gastgeber. Americo hat sich sehr viel Zeit genommen und immer ein offenes Ohr für Fragen oder Gedprachsbedarf. Das Zimmer war sauber und hatte alles was man braucht. Super Anbindungen und für Kurztrips sehr zu empfehlen.
Americo was a fabulous host! Any questions you have, he will answer them. He is also so willing to let you know all the hot spots to go to. I absolutely loved his location too! It is close to everything. A great bnb experience. I'd highly recommend staying here!
The listing was as described and Americo was very good about responding quickly to communication as we had travel issues with a cancelled flight. Americo truly cared about helping us have a good time in Rome and spent time going over the map he gave us. I recommend him highly.
It was such a pleasure staying here.Americo is a great host! And thank you for the lovely wine! The Colosseum is just a few minutes walk. The place was very clean and Americo was so very welcoming! We really enjoyed our stay. So conveniet to everything! If we ever go to Rome we will definitely come back here! Thank you for everything again!
The location was prefect, with a view of the Coloseum down the street and close to the Metro. We walked everywhere from the apartment, being central to everything in Rome. The apartment itself is quite luxurious, recently renovated and very clean. We had a large room to ourselves, with a shared bathroom and dining room. Americo was very welcoming, on arrival showing us around the apartment and marking out all the sites and restaurants he recommended and answering any of our questions. He even organized an airport taxi on the day of our departure. Americo is a professional, you wouldn't even find a friendlier, helpful host in any 5 star hotel. 10/10 Helpful 10/10 Friendly 10/10 Clean 10/10 Location

Americo, desde antes de llegar al apartamento, ya se preocupo por explicarnos como llegar, cuidar de nuestros gustos y explicar los servicios que ofrecía, desde luego que los servicios de Americo superaron nuestras expectativas, siempre con ganas de aconsejarte para que disfrutes del viaje y de la estancia lo máximo posible, mi pareja y yo sentimos un trato muy personalizado, descubrimos grandes sitios que si no fuera por sus consejos no hubiéramos conocido.
