Paolo and Camilla had been very helpful throughout our stay. We had a wonderful time at the apartment and enjoyed our stay very much. The terrace was lovely.
You can find supermarket, bars, restaurants around the neighborhood easily. The area can be a bit noisy at night due to the night life at the bars nearby but that's just the neighborhood.
Paolo was very accommodating and answered all my questions patiently. He even recommended a dinner place for my husband's birthday and helped us make a reservation. After our stay, he also helped us arrange taxi pickup early in the morning.
Thank you for the hospitality!
The place was comfortable, and quiet.
Camilla was a gracious host, and very accommodation.
We had a great time in Rome, this was a great apartment to relax in, especially the terrace. Everything you need, restaurants and markets all around and easy access into the centre of town by bus. Our hosts even organized a taxi for our early morning flight!
We spent the wonderful week in Rome in Camilla'a apartament. It was really great and comfortable. We loved spending evening on the big terrace. We're sure that we come back to Rome some day. We will stay in Camilla's flat :)
Firstly I would recommend to everyone to stay in Pigneto if they are heading to Roma. We loved staying in this neighbourhood as it was such a welcome relief from the horrible over crowded tourist areas. Pigneto has a cool arty unpretentious vibe that we really enjoyed.
The apartment is in the perfect location, at the end of the street is via del Pigneto where there are many local restaurants and bars with a great atmosphere.
We highly recommend visiting the restaurant on this strip 'Roma App' to be served by the lovely Francesco, who went above and beyond to make us feel at home - indulging us Aussies trying to speak some half Italian. If you eat here, you must try the Pesce dish- delicious!
The apartment had air con which worked very well, very much appreciated after a long day of sight seeing. The shower had good water pressure, plenty of hot water and the apartment was very clean. Paolo even let us use the washing machine which was a god send after a few weeks of travelling!
If you go for a walk across the train tracks you will find local cafe's and gelaterria, and little supermarkets where you can buy fresh cheese, bread and pepperoni from the deli section.
The coffee from the local cafe's was fantastic, not bitter at all and cheap! Two coffees and a water for the same price as one coffee in the tourist centre.
We were greeted by the cleaning lady on arrival at the apartment, who seemed quite lovely and left us the key. We spoke with Paolo via text if we needed anything.
One minor criticism was the bed was a little hard (for my partner) and the front door was a little hard to open (especially coming home after having dinner with wine!) but these criticisms are very minor and would not deter me from staying again.
A word of advise for travellers- if you get a taxi I would recommend knowing on the map how to get there and getting the driver to agree on an approximate price and route. In the end we paid 10€ from termini to the apartment, however this was a haggled down price from the original 17€ as the driver drove round and round, pretending to be lost and pulling over to ask locals where to go. It may be daunting at first but I would recommend bus 105 as it goes straight there.
All in all we really enjoyed our stay in Pigneto and the apartment, I would highly recommend it for an authentic stay in Rome away from the horrible tourist traps. The locals were very friendly and made us feel welcome. Ensure you get a bottle of chianti and sit on the terrace and watch the sun go down. Perfecto!
I highly recommend Camilla's place if you want to experience living in a smaller vibrant community in Rome. Pigneto is lively at night and there are plenty of restaurants to pick from. The apartment is conveniently located at a 15 minute bus ride from Termini station. Camilla and her boyfriend were away on vacation but were kind enough to text and email me to make sure we found everything alright. The rooms were clean and exactly as portrayed on the pictures. Thank you and would definitely stay again!
Thanks Camilla for excellent hollidays in Rome. Rome was very hot in that days, and flat was very comfortable because of its conditioner and very nice terrace wich was great to spend time in the evenings. We liked the location of flat: 10-15 min to Termini station so it was easy to reach every places we need. Thanks a lot Camilla's family for warm welcome and for help with night taxi to airport )))
My stay in Rome was excellent. The apartment is easy to get to using public transit and has a number of great local bars close by. Alexis who helps manage the apartment was great and was very informative.
If you are visiting Rome I would highly encourage staying in this apartment.
We have spent a very nice time in Camilla's flat. The appartment is well furnished, and the terrace is perfect to have breakfast or a drink ! We were welcomed by a friend of Camilla who gave us a lot of advice and remained very available during our stay.
Our favorite : the Pigneto zone. There is a little market every morning where you can find all you need, in a very popular and cosmopolitan atmosphere. In the evening, there are a lot of bars and restaurants. A very authentic experience of Rome !
At last, just in case... Contrary of what you might think, it's close from most of the major touristic attractions thanks to the bus 81 !!
Great comfortable apt. in a perfect location for us. everything worked perfectly, the terrace was wonderful and the kitchen had everything we needed to cook with. lovely decor, great spacious bathroom - even had guide and language books around. i thought the price was very fair for what we got. it was a little noisy at night on the weekends, but that's just the neighborhood... the apt was terrific and we plan on coming back to Pigneto again and staying HERE! thanks Camilla!
