  • This was our first time using AirBNB and it was a great experience! Simon and Francy were quick to respond to all of my questions before we even made our reservation. They were extremely professional and so helpful. They took care of arranging a car service to pick us up at the airport upon arrival as well as at our departure. Upon arrival, we were amazed to find an apartment that was even better than in the pictures! The apartment was immaculate! The wrap around terrace with all of the doors opening onto it was just beautiful. This apartment was so bright, beautifully furnished, and stocked with everything we needed! Cinzia, who resides in the building, was such a gracious host! She was there to greet us and was available to answer any question we had. She couldn't have been more helpful! She kindly provided anything we wanted or needed. Her goal was to make sure we were comfortable and had a wonderful stay. We felt very blessed to stay in such an amazing property! We loved our host, the apartment, and the perfect location! We were sad to leave and I already miss being there!

  • This is a wonderful find and a great place to stay in Rome. The apartment itself is beautiful and exceptionally clean, located on the top floor of a lovely building with a small elevator. We loved being in the Prati neighborhood; outside the hustle and bustle of the tourist zone (Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, Pantheon, etc.) but ten minutes walking distance from both that central core of the city and the Vatican.

    Everything from check-in to check-out went smoothly. We wound up arriving earlier than anticipated but it was not an issue for our hostess, Cenzia. She checked us in right away and set us up with all we needed. Everything in the apartment worked (including the air conditioning, Wi/Fi, hot water, washing machine, etc.) and we had no issues whatsoever with the amenities.

    We also took Simon up on the offer to take a car from the apartment to the airport the day we left. It made everything much easier for us.

    Altogether, this is a great place to stay! Highly recommended.

  • The apartment has an unbeatable location just blocks away from St. Peter's. The apartment has 2 beds only. The double bed and the sofa bed. Keep that in mind when booking. The apartment is very clean and otherwise had everything as described. Wi if worked fine for us. We had a great time in Rome.

  • As a first user of Airbnb I could not have picked a more perfect apartment as a trial run. I was met on the doorstep on arrival and then shown everything in the flat in detail - Cinzia and her husband were great and very helpful! The apartment itself is wonderful and perfectly located for very easy access to all of Rome. It is also close to good food shops, an excellent indoor market and the metro so for me ideal. Having stayed in Rome around 30 times in recent years this was by far the most relaxing and enjoyable time and it's without doubt related to the comfortable surroundings the apartment provided - it's difficult to beat sitting out on the balcony in the evening sun!

  • Nous avons passé une merveilleuse semaine à Rome.
    L'appartement proposé par Francesca est un véritable petit nid. Il est très confortable, spacieux, très propre avec une cuisine fonctionnelle. Il offre une très belle vue sur le dôme de la basilique St Pierre. Il est remarquablement bien situé à proximité des différents lieux touristiques (Chapelle Sixtine, Place St Pierre, Place Navona..). L'arrêt de bus est situé juste dans la rue Cola di Rienzo, c'est l'idéal !
    La communication avec Francesca est très agréable, accueillante et réactive.
    Nous aimerions également souligner la gentillesse de Cinzia.
    Notre vol est arrivé très en retard. Cinzia nous a attendu et accueilli avec une grande gentillesse malgré l'heure tardive.
    Cinzia est une personne prévenante, très à l'écoute. Ses conseils nous ont été précieux.
    Nous vous recommandons vivement cette adresse.
    Nous espérons pouvoir y retourner.

  • We stayed in this apartment for 5 days, and we really enjoyed it. Its nice and clean inside and there was extra room to spread out. The woman that met us and let us in was very nice and helpful in explaining how the apartment/building worked. The limo service was also very helpful and made our trip smoother and easier. Its in a nice neighborhood near Vatican, and though it is far from all the other sites, its still worth it if you are like to walk. Its a nice area to walk in and near the river.

  • Excelente apartamento! Ótima localização, em uma rua fantástica, que tem tudo de melhor e várias empresas tradicionais, perfeita para vivenciar uma realidade verdadeiramente romana. Próxima a todos os principais pontos da cidade e com transporte público (ônibus e metrô) bem acessível. A hospitalidade também foi perfeita. Tivemos ajuda em tudo o que precisamos. Obrigada por tudo!

  • Great neighborhood. Lively and thriving, safe, plenty of good cafes, restaurants, and markets, you feel at home in a normal urban setting. At the same time, it is walkable to all the crazy ancient touristy destinations.

    Apartment is great too; top and back of the building so pretty quiet, clean and safe, nice bed, perfect for basing out of, there's not much more that we could have asked for for a place in Rome!
