Other Things to Note
"The Baboon", Ripetta street and Via del Corso, the three main arteries of the historic center of Rome meet there in Piazza del Popolo. Representation of papal patronage Renaissance, the ancient seat of games, fairs, folk performances and executions, the square is certainly one of the most famous in the world.
"Felici faustoque ingressui MDCLV" ("For a happy and auspicious imput"): this is the message carved by Bernini on the Porta del Popolo (the ancient Porta Flaminia) upon the arrival in Rome of Queen Christina of Sweden, and today welcomes millions of visitors each year who come to admire the historical and cultural wonders offered by the square.
The twin churches of Santa Maria Montesanto and Santa Maria dei Miracoli, the Obelisco Flaminio (the oldest and the second highest of Rome), and the two Valadier's fountains help create the charming atmosphere of the square. And yet, the church of Santa Maria del Popolo, built on the burial site of Emperor Nerone and his damned soul , and the adjacent business premises , which have become an integral part of the square and once frequented by people dear to the history of Rome as Trilussa, Guttuso and Pasolini make Piazza del Popolo the highest cultural emblem of the "Romanity" .

Loved the apartment. Paolo was very easy to communicate with before our arrival, friendly, and super helpful. Everything is nice and clean, comfortable bed, great part of Rome. I highly recommend and would gladly stay there again. Great place!
House Ripetta was just as described in the airbnb listing. The apartment was clean and comfortable. It was situated at the back of the apartment building overlooking a very quiet courtyard. We rarely saw or heard our neighbours. The kitchen was small but well equipped. The bed was very comfortable. It was good to be able use a washing machine as we were into the end of the third week of our holiday - no need to wash clothes in the bathroom basin !
We only saw Paolo on the first day when he showed us the apartment. He was helpful but as this was our fourth visit to Rome we knew our way around failry well.
The WIFI internet was the best we experienced on our 4 weeks in Europe.
We did not use the bikes.
We took up Paolo's offer of a transfer from the airport to the apartment for 52 euro thinking that would be less stressful than a taxi and would facilitate check-in. Unfortunately this arrangement did not work smoothly as the driver was not waiting for us when we arrived and we had to make a number of phone calls with Paolo before the driver arrived 40 minutes late. Both Paolo and the driver apologised.
I was a little embarrassed when I lifted the toilet seat and the hinge broke. I hope Paolo did not have too much trouble replacing the seat before his next guest arrived.
I highly recommend House Ripetta. A small hotel room of reasonable standard in Romw would have cost us at least another 60 euro a night and we would not have a kitchen, washing machine and many more square meters of space to relax in.
House Ripetta was wonderful. The location was good, home comfortable and our hosts were incredibly thorough. They provided everything we could use as visitors. I didn't miss having a hotel concierge with their guidance!
Wonderful flat in a superb location - we arrived late in the evening but Paolo was there to meet us and explained everything we needed to know, including giving us some great local restaurant recommendations. The flat is very central and the bikes were very useful; we had no need for the metro as we walked or cycled everywhere we wanted to go. I'd have no hesitation in recommending Paolo and Giuly's apartment - it was beautiful!
Paolo was a very gracious host. He met us at the apartment and went over everything that we needed to know about the apartment and surrounding area. As advertised. The Apartment was perfect for the 4 of us..Close to all of the attractions and sites that we wanted to see..Perfect location. Many restaurants and shops within a minutes walk.

We were met as agreed and shown around the property by Paolo. This first floor apartment is ideal for two people, with a comfortable double bed and powerful hot shower. All facilities worked well, including a compact kitchen and a smart tv. Whilst the apartment is located in a very busy area the situation is very quiet as it faces onto an internal courtyard shielded from the bustle by the apartment block. There are good quality restaurants close to hand and the metro is within easy reach. It's a great location from which to explore Rome, with most attractions accessible on foot, and this is reflected in cost of the apartment. Paolo trusted us to lock up and leave the apartment in good order as he was unable to be present when we departed. We had a great stay in the apartment....many thanks to Paolo and Giuly
Beautiful location, very peaceful and close to the great sights of Rome. Very easy hosts to communicate with and very responsive. Definitely recommend and use again.
