  • Nice apartment in good location. Clean and tidy.

    October 2013
  • My wife and I stayed at Roberto's Carpe Diem B&B in early Oct for 4D3N.

    Pros
    - Location is relatively close to Roma main train station.
    - Closest metro station is about 10 mins walk.
    - Supermarket is about 5 mins walk away.
    - Roberto was responsive to queries.
    - Roberto provided some biscuits and jam and butter for breakfast.
    - Free wifi.

    Cons
    - The room is a basement room, so it's very damp. You can feel the dampness once you step into the room. We followed instructions (for aircon and window) but could still feel the dampness. The bed felt cold and damp. Not a pleasant feeling.

  • Wonderful stay in Rome. Unfortunately, I did not get to meet Roberto, but was let in to the apartment by his friendly assistant. Roberto was kind enough to offer to meet us during our stay, and responded to our messages and requests very quickly. Bread, jam, butter and juice were all provided in the little kitchenette, as well as coffee and tea. Airconditioning with a built in dehumidifier were provided, which is absolutely essential in such a humid city; the apartment is in the basement, so it can get damp without it. There are a double set of windows, so the room is very quiet. A simple, bachelor style apartment, 10 minutes from the nearest Metro station, about 20 minutes from Termini Station.

  • Me and my mom had a very nice stay at Robertos. It is a little but very well placed falt. And all you need for a vaccation is there + Roberto is very welcomming.

    September 2013
  • Roberto is a very friendly person, he is always there when i need anything. Besides, i love the location, away from the busy city and 5 minutes walk to metro station. Overall, i am very satisfy with the stay. Thanks Roberto for the hosting

  • Very good flat~

    September 2013
  • The place was very nice with everything we needed. It was about a 15 minute walk away from the coloseum and there was a station just around the corner which could get you pretty much anywhere in Rome. Roberto was very nice and was very willing to help. Overall it was an excellent stay.

    July 2013
  • We really enjoyed our stay in Roberto's apartment and in Rome. The apartment was very clean and contained everything we needed for our stay. Roberto kindly left us some bread, jam, ham and juice which was much appreciated after our early morning flight.

    We had no problem with humidity as we did as advised and made use of the AC (very nice in the hot summer) and left the window ajar.

    The apartment is a 6 minute walk to the metro which will take you to all the main sites, and you can walk to the Colosseum in under 20 minutes.

    The apartment was really great, the only thing I would say is we weren't crazy about the surrounding area (15 minutes from the termini). But that being said we had an early flight when we left and being able to walk to the station in the early hours of the morning was incredibly useful.

    July 2013
  • Had a great stay in Rome at Roberto's apartment. Was easy to get around to all the sights we wanted to visit as it is close to both the metro and train station. Apartment was comfortable and spacious enough for our few nights. There is a supermarket and restaurants nearby.

    June 2013
  • We stayed at Roberto's apt this May.
    Roberto is very nice person and very responsible host. It was really easy to communicate with him.
    The check-in was very easy, and it was really nice to get some maps and books about Roma (even in russian language) and some refreshments in the fridge...
    Roberto also helped us with taxi when we cheked out, because it was rainy outside and it takes about 15 mins walking to Termini.... Its just the special thanks to Roberto)
    About apt - if you decide to book it, you should really think twice before and get ready for a wetness inside... Of course there are the AC and fans and etc... So if you are ready to pay attention to opening windows and switching on the fans and all this staff its OK, just read all previous comments and dont be surprised) So we did and had really good time in Roma.
    Thank you very much Roberto, we wish to come back to Roma again!!
