FINAL CLEANING INCLUDED

What we offer: we rent a tiny indipendent house in an excellent location to visit Rome,we love the relationship with the people and we love to meet tourists from all over the world but it is not our main job and we can't not assure we will always be available for car service, our presence at check-in, or we will have time to advise all places to visit or good restaurants etc. .
In those cases we employ the aid of maps and travel guides in the house and of course the understanding of our guests.
Anyway we will always be available by phone for any problems or advice.

  • The location is extremely close to the colosseum, and right next to a metro stop, but if you want to stay somewhere more central, I recommend near the Spanish Steps. Unfortunately the street is quite noisy. The apartment is absolutely tiny so more suitable for couples, rather than friends who may be using the fold out couch as it is so small.

    We weren't given any bath floor towels and toilet paper was basically empty. No spare quilt covers for the fold out bed and the bed sheets on the bed looked as though they hadn't been washed. Floor was dirty, I'm not sure if it's been mopped for awhile. Internet was painfully slow, basically didn't work.

    On the plus, the apartment is nice and modern, and Grazia and Max were very friendly.

    Response from Grazia:

    As far as I cleaned the house personally everything was always perfect but since I am often out of town I can't control the cleanliness of the apartment before the guests arrival. Now I have changed the housekeeper and I see the result is more satisfying,regarding the bed sheets they definetly were clean but we don't use to iron them due to insufficient time , I really regret that you had a so negative experience in our place but Twins Central used to be a great place for people vacations and it will continue to be this way.
    However thank you for your comment.

  • Grazia's place was only a short stroll from the collosso metro, Colluseum and Roman Forum.

    Grazia communicated well to coordinate my check in and check out. I didn't get the opportunity to meet her but she was very flexible to work around our time of arrival/departure. One thing to note, we tried to call Grazia's number on the Air Bnb website but it didn't work for us. Thank you!

    The entrance is on the ground level of a residential street with lots of tourist walking by. The streets are not noisy. However, the neighbor upstairs had heavy footsteps and would be up until midnight.

    The apartment itself is small, like many of the other reviewers noted. There is a small kitchen downstairs and the bed/bathroom is upstairs. Air con is strong. Hot water works fine too. The apartment was tidy upon arrival. I must say the floor was slightly dirty and toilet was left uncleaned. We were given one toilet roll to use over 3 nights, so we had to buy more which was slightly inconvenient. There is 3G internet, but it is very slow.

    Thank you Grazia for a great stay overall!

  • Lugar acogedor, para unos días inolvidables en la Ciudad Eterna...
    Grazia y Max fueron super amables, estuvieron disponibles para todas nuestras necesidades y cumplieron con todo lo pactado...
    Literalmente, en las puertas del Coliseo, en una callecita típica, con acceso al Metro cercano, bares, supermercados...
    Muy recomendable

  • The apartment is located in a fantastic spot. So close to the colosseum and transit stop. Grazia was out if town and arranged for a friend to meet us. He was so helpful and even carried our bags upstairs. The kitchen was well stocked, and we were very happy to stay there.

  • The location is fantastic - right next to the Colosseum and the Metro, so very convenient. The photos are a little misleading....the apartment was much smaller than I thought, and quite dirty. The bathroom was clean, however, which is the most important thing to me. The walls were scuffed, and the floor was dirty, but it could of been worse. Grazia was very friendly, despite there being a miscommunication about when we would arrive.

    Response from Grazia:

    I'm very sorry for the little inconvenients, as you know I was out of town and wasn't able to check the cleanness of the apartment before your arrival , this is really the first time it happens. I provided also to whitewash the walls to improve the experience of the guests in our place, regarding the pictures ...it's due to the professional photos but it's not so small as it could appear after your review.
    However thank you for your comments, they helped me to do better.

  • Grazia was very accommodating and though we never actually met she was available and flexible when my check in time changed and if we needed anything.
    Location was awesome, right next to the Colosseum, Roman Forum and Metro.
    I loved that there was a little kitchen and that the unit was on the ground floor.
    The bed was comfortable. The only thing we wish we had was a wifi connection.

  • Grazia's place is a gem - almost on the doorstep of the Colosseum the location is excellent and apartment itself is very nice and a comfortable base. Grazia and Max were excellent hosts, they checked we were ok, booked us in at a restaurant for Easter Sunday and even brought us an Easter cake. I would definitely recommend their place and them as excellent hosts and we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again next time we are in Rome.
