Barby was very friendly when we arrived and took time to show us how to use the key to the door, which can be tricky. The apartment is in an excellent location with lots of little cafes nearby and an easy walk to many attractions, as well as being close to the metro. Unfortunately, there was no air conditioning (as stated in the description) and, it being July, it was uncomfortably warm. For travelers who just need a space to stay and dump their stuff while they explore, this is a good one. But, be aware that it is very student/hostel-like, with basic amenities and no locks on doors. There is a breakfast provided (package croissants, fruit, instant coffees and tea) but no access to a kitchen.
Hello Tiffany, thank you about your review.
I'll just add a quick explanation for the future guests:
the house key works perfectly, but we show our guests how to use it, because it is a
Super Safe Butterfly key that not every one knows how to use. It is slightly different from most keys around the worlds, but it works great and we hope
they will be happy about staying in an apartment that has a Super Safe Lock.
La habitación está en una zona estratégica, ideal para ir caminando a muchos lugares de interés. La anfitriona es muy agradable y dispuesta a solucio nar inconvenientes. La habitación tal vez es pequeña para dos camas, ya que una debe plegarse para estar con espacio
Barby was nice and helpful – she was there to open the door for me, answer questions and show me how to go about the apartment facilities. Maps and guides were made available and snacks/water provided at all times. As per the listing - the building and room were quaint, comfortable and homely; the neighbourhood was pretty quiet and I rested well, easy to access from the bus stops and metro with not too much walking required.
Barby was very friendly and the accommodation was clean, but very basic student-type accommodation. Barby supplied breakfast on a small low table in the corridor, but there was no table and no chairs, even in the bed rooms, so you had to sit on your bed to have your breakfast. One major problem was that the bedroom doors would not stay closed (there was no lock) Barby’s solution to put our suitcase in front of it was a bit of a nuisance as no bedside lights were supplied so if you got up in the dark you tripped over the suitcase trying to find the light switch. There was also a problem with the bathroom door, another guest locked it and couldn’t open it. Fortunately I heard her and after trying to help her, knocked on Barby’s door - who didn’t come out to help - but called instructions on how to unlock it. It took two us to do it, so if one was there by oneself don’t lock the bathroom door. The table shown in the photo was what the breakfast things were on, in the hall, and the hall, unlike in the photograph, was rather cluttered and not quite as light and airy as shown. One of the beds a foldup was quite hard and uncomfortable.
Wonderful location! Barby was a fantastic host. As soon as we arrived she made sure we knew all we needed to know.
The location is perfect. The check-in was easy. Barby is such a nice person. I felt like we know each other for ages. I really enjoyed my stay in Rome. Many thanks.
Very great location and the room was very pleasant. A very nice breakfast was provided everyday as well which made the overall experience all the more enjoyable.

About the Host, Corso Street
I love going on holiday and meeting new people. I am interested in art, design, architecture, music, singing, dancing, drawing, painting, literature, good food, soft drinks, international cuisine and cultural studies. I like exploring art galleries and discovering new vacation places.
When I am in Rome I like sightseeing, going to the Opera Theater, shopping, dancing, going to night clubs and walking 'round the town center.
Among my favorite readings are design and architecture magazines like Design Week, Casabella, Casaviva, Wallpaper and Domus. I also like vacation e-zines and paper publications like Mega Holiday, Backpacker, Vacation Best Spots, and Time Out.
