The place was perfect and Dario an exceptional host.
Spacious and clean apartment
Close to public transport
Close to super market and restaurants
Air conditioned apartment ( was a huge plus because we visited Rome when the temperatures were soaring )
Communication : accurate and detailed. Dario did a hand off when we reached the apt and gave us a file with all relevant information about the apart. Ahead of time , he gave us pictorial directions to reach the place complete with access details to the apartment . His attention to detail is noteworthy . He is easily accessible on phone, day or night and is super helpful. I am glad we stayed at Dario's place. Would highly recommend staying here.
Cons: None for the apartment or host.
The power failed a couple of times during our stay but that is attributable more to the city than the apartment.
We stayed in Dario's apartment for four days during the epic "Caronte" heat wave of July 2015, when temperatures were approaching 40 degrees C. Dario was the consummate host - polite, prompt with replies, and profoundly helpful in giving tips to negotiate Rome. This was our first AirBnB experience, and Dario really made it one that we will remember for quite a while! He met us at the door, gave us a tour of the apartment, and then topped it off with a personal walking tour of the neighborhood. How cool was that!
The apartment itself is exactly as pictured, with plenty of space for 3 or 4 (or even 5 if the season is cool enough to use the single bed on the patio). It's also spotless and modern, with new appliances, great WiFi, and a bathroom with plenty of space (though the shower might be a bit cozy for someone of larger-than-average girth).
Dario's neighborhood is not "tourist central," which means you'll get a chance to see the "real" Rome and not just the parts of the city overrun with those who only know it from guidebooks or travel shows. There are great restaurants in his neighborhood, and the grocery store downstairs (literally under the building) makes it possible to cook your own Italian fare in the comfort of an air-conditioned apartment. Perfect!
Dario's recommendations for things to do was easily the best part of the whole trip. We asked for ideas on things off the beaten track, and Dario told us about a Romanesque (AD 300) church that is one of the oldest churches in Rome. We went there, wandered in, and were amazed by the subtle beauty and powerful symbolism of the place. To top it off, we were the ONLY ones there. Of course we did the traditional tourist hot spots as well, and found it not too difficult at all to get downtown from Dario's place. The bus to Tiburtina runs right past the apartment, and from there you have the option of taking the Metro or other buses pretty much anywhere you want to go in the city. Our advice? Buy a multi-day bus pass and take the buses from Tiburtina, if you can. They're fast, efficient, usually air-conditioned, and not nearly as crowded as the Metro. Once we figured that out, we were thrilled by how much of Rome we saw aboveground. We really felt like we got a feel for the city that way.
All in all, I'm going to say Dario's apartment was the perfect initiation into AirBnB. We could not have asked for a better host or apartment, and we highly recommend it to everyone.
Our family of five had a great time at Dario's place. We loved staying there! The apartment is clean, spacious and conveniently located by a subway station and a supermarket (located on the first floor of the apartment building)! We really appreciate Dario's help throughout our stay and his advice about where to go in Rome. Dario is definitely the Super-host of Rome because he gave us a warm welcome, guided us during our stay and made us feel at home! I highly recommend his apartment!
Mille Grazie and Grazie Mille! Cheers, Paula and family
Dario was very helpful and responsive from the very early stages of the booking (about a month before our arrival). His responses on the whole variety of questions (including the transportation and sightseeing in Rome) were almost always instantaneous and very detailed. Dario's apartment was very clean and new. All appliances were functioning flawlessly, we really enjoyed the shower which was really high quality. Although we haven't met Dario, he was omnipresent during our stay. Upon a slightest need he would come and fix a defect, should it arise. He did great job leaving very elaborate "handbook" describing how to use the AC, safe, etc, how to get to the center of Rome at night, etc. The only drawback is that it's not the very center of Rome, and if you are not opposing using metro (sometimes with some connections) then it's a great apartment and great host!
Dario was a wonderful host and his apartment is absolutely perfect. We met with his mother to let us in and were so impressed with the accommodations. It was a quick walk to many forms of transportation which made getting around the city so simple. We messed up our flight date and checked out early and Dario was kind enough to take the time to let us back in! Highly recommended for your time in Rome.
Dario was very welcoming with explanations for how everything worked and gave great instructions on how to find the apartment. Unfortunately the air conditioner was not working, but Dario had very kindly brought over a fan to use in the meantime. The apartment was great with a lovely terrace. The facilities were perfect, with a well-stocked kitchen and an excellent shower!
We really enjoyed our stay in dario's lovely appartement!! We had a very nice and warm welcome from his mother , she showed us everything in the house and awnsered all our questions hapily! The centre was very easy to reach with metro and bus. We will definately come back again!!
