The apartment was clean and well equipped. It was smaller than l thought it would be and a basement apartment. A little dark in winter but would be a wonderful respite for hot summer days in Rome. It has a gorgeous court yard which on mild winter sunny days is lovely to sit in. The apartment is close to the Vatican and the museums and has a bus depot across the road which leads to the historic centre and other parts of Rome.All communication prior to my stay were very clear and consistent.
Silvia's brother met me at a designated place and was very polite and understanding, even though l was unexpectedly an hour late. He also made it the conditions of the apartment very clear. The internet connection was strong but using over 1gig meant paying extra.
We chatted with Silvia only through the Internet and by SMS. When we arrived to the Rome, we were met by her brother Daniel. He recommended and showed location of good pizzerias and super market in the area, gave general advices.
The flat is located in the great quiet area 15-minutes walk from Vatican city. Rooms were clean and cosy. We were met by a welcoming bottle of wine and a vase with fruits.
Silvia quickly helped us to solve small issues during our stay in Rome, we constantly felt her care.
We were very pleased staying this week in Rome!
Silvia was a fantastic host! We arrived late due to a train delay, but Silvia was easily reachable and very flexible with our check in time. The info we were given about the apartment was incredibly thorough and helpful.
The apartment was as expected from a listed AIRBNB holiday apartment. My wife and I were met on time as agreed. The neighborhood is first class with every possible amenity required within walking distance. The bus terminal is a couple of minutes away and there are buses to every corner of Rome right on one's doorstep. We used a Rome Pass and were easily able to return to the apartment during the day when required. The apartment is also super quiet at night, hence able to sleep well. I am able to say that this is an ideal place to stay in Rome.
Silvia was a great host and helped up enjoy our Rome experience very much! The apartment was large and clean with plenty of amenities. The location was convenient, close to the Vatican city and the Metro. I would recommend Silvia and her apartment to anyone.
We had a great time at Silvia's lovely flat. Its clean, spacious and has everything you need. The location is a bit outside but there is bus station right around the corner that will take you to the heart of the city in less than 20 minutes. Thanks you Silvia for letting us stay and we look forward to coming back in the future!
The apartment was clean and comfortable-wonderful to relax in at the end of a long day of sightseeing and the wifi was helpful for researching the next day's adventures. I was only there in the mornings and evenings/nights, but the apartment was always cool and the neighborhood is far enough away from the tourist areas to get a feel for the local life in Rome, but close to public transit to get to all of the sites. It is a quick walk to the Metro station, but the bus stop one block away is also very helpful and can get you closer to the metro station when you have luggage. (The metro passes cover both.) Silvia was in touch before my visit and was available for questions during my stay, as well. My only regret is not having more time in the apartment. I guess I'll have to go back someday...

My name is Silvia, 55 years old.
I live in Rome where I work in an Hospital as Responsible of Budget & Control Unit; you can have a look at my personal website, (website hidden).
I like travelling and living in different place; I came back to Rome in 2008 from Venice Laguna where I've lived for six years. In '90s I was Bologna (north of Italy) and previously in Pavia (close to Milan), and in the central east coast (Ancona and then Pescara). Now, as I'm getting older...I will stay in Rome, my own city !
I love classical music (Baroque period, Vivaldi, Hendel) and italian "rockstyle" (Zucchero, Vasco Rossi, Ligabue).
