This was our first experience with Airbnb and it exceeded our expectations. The apartment was very well described: spacious, well equipped, high quality standard, quiet, clean and the heating worked very well. The location is excellent, you can easily walk to all sights. Although the bus stop is right in front of the house we never had to use it. The apartment is located on the 4th floor (with elevator).
Silvio organized a driver to pick us up at the airport and met us personally at the apartment. He provided lots of information including where to celebrate New Years Eve. Very useful and personal.
We can certainly recommend this apartment!
Our stay with Silvio was a very positive experience. He is a very kind, thoughtful and attentive host.
As a group of four girlfriends touring together, we all agreed that this was the perfect central location for us. The photographs were true indications of what to expect when you walk in.
The entrance was very secure, with key entry from the street and a swipe key entrance through what can only be described as a safe room door (electronically controlled - four deadbolts!) for the apartment front door.
Silvio provides a printer and laptop for convenience, and although we did not do any real cooking the kitchen was more than adequate for our breakfasts and antipasto plates.
Hot water, wireless internet and electricity were all very stable connections. There is not much outside noise heard at all in the apartment, other than the pigeons from the courtyard!
Would stay and recommend this place and our host again any day.
Grazie, Silvio! :)
Silvio was amazing! The apartment is perfect, and very spacious. Silvio was very accommodating with our arrival times and helpful with getting to know the area.
Also, real central air conditioning...this is an unexpected treat in a European apartment. :)
Responses were always timely, and Silvio's english is excellent. Do NOT miss the opportunity to stay in his beautiful apartment in Rome.
Also... the restaurant 'Splendor' right across the street is amazing! So good, we ate there twice. After taking a day trip to Naples to try the pizza, this place makes it the exact same way and was just as good! :)
Silvio and his apartment are the best!
Normally the downside of an apartment is you are on your own for tips, recommendations etc. Silvio is, however, a great host and always available, even sending you emails during the stay to stay in touch. This apartment is roomy and spotless, but most of all it is quiet - a wonderful place to escape to after a hectic day in noisy Rome. I would certainly stay here again, and would recommend to friends and family.
Excellent stay, super-friendly, well-organized host, flat exactly as advertised, well-equipped with good AC (not a given in Europe), laptop, printer. Great location in easy walking distance to many sights.
The apartment is great - just as it looks on the pictures, if not better. It is very modern and clean. The location is also really convenient. That alone is usually enough. However, Silvio takes it to the next level. In fact, when it comes to service, he is in his own league. From the 10 minute Youtube video that tells you everything you need to know about the apartment and the surroundings, to the friendly insider tips and suggestions (sometimes spontaneously by sms!) and the follow up calls to make sure everything is OK - this guy has it down. We were a group of 6 people staying at his apartment, and we all agreed on this: If you need a place to stay in Rome, you couldn't find a better host than Silvio - I don't know if he has other apartmens up for rent - but this one is perfect.
