Benedetta was not in Rome while we were visiting, however her assistant Gena was very welcoming and helpful. We were met at the apartment upon arrival, Gena answered all of our questions and gave us a tour of the unit.
The apartment is identical to the photos, very clean and stocked with the essentials (coffee, salt, oils, soaps, shampoo etc). The place is in a great location, 2 minutes from the Colosseum and Roman Forum and steps from public transportation. I would absolutely stay in this apartment again, everything was perfect.
The only negative piece was the stairs to the bed. There are 3 large platforms that you need to step on to get to the bedroom - this is not attached to the ground and wobbles when you step on it.
The apartment is extremely comfortable and well located. Very near countless sights, public transport. Was even an easy 20 minute walk to get to the Trastavere neighborhood. Was a lovely stay.
The location is amazing, right next to the Colosseum and forum, and the layout of the studio is really cleverly designed - great for a short stay. Two things worth considering: 1) because it's right in the centre, you get the noise that comes with being in a touristy spot - not the apartment's fault at all but just something to be aware of (we didn't mind but some people may); 2) the hot water in the shower is temperamental - sometimes we could shower 3-4 mins straight but other times only 20 seconds or so. Again, this wasn't a problem for us for a short stay but it might be worth bearing in mind if you're planning on staying longer term.
Pasamos una estadia genial en roma! La ubicacion del Dpto. Esta buenisima, bar en frente y restaurantes muy lindos en la zona! Ademas esta a la vuelta del coliseo! El dpto en si muy lindo y completo, con cafe riquisimo para los desayunos, lavaropas y placard grande! Tal cual las fotos!! Lo único malo fue el agua fría de la ducha! En tres ocasiones tuvimos que bañarnos en otro momento del día porque no salía agua caliente, pero igualmente la pasamos genial y estuvimos muy comodos! Gena y benedeta unas divinas que nos dejaron flores de bienvenida por nuestra Luna de miel!!
We had an incredible time in Rome! The flat was in the historic Monti neighborhood, extremely central and walking distance to seemingly everything -- especially the Forum and the Colosseum! Literally, open the door, walk around the corner: bam! The Colosseum stands imposingly in front of you.
The neighborhood was lovely and had lots of nice places to eat and drink. Rick Steves' Italy 2015 puts Monti as the top place to eat casually and eat well, and there were no shortage of great aces to discover.
The loft itself was architecturally really cool and very spacious for a studio. The lofted bed and creative cabinets were clean and well-kept, making the whole experience awesome. The apartment was stocked with a moka stovetop espresso pot and espresso/sugar/tea, so we had coffee each morning which was nice.
Benedetta and her assistant Gena were very responsive, and Gena waited for us for several hours even in spite of our train days and mobile service dropping out. Very nice and kind, and a great experience. Gena was even kind enough to show us the amenities in the apartment and asked us (in Italian, she didn't speak English, but we understood) to simply text her and she would have her daughter text back in perfect English.
Overall, we had an incredible time in Rome, and the apartment could not have been better. The best accommodations of our whole Italy trip, and certainly a place we'll stay again!
PERFECT STAY IN ROME!!
Benedetta was really nice to me on the messages, really helpful. She gave us tips for our arrival and what to do when we were there. When we arrived at the apartment there was someone waiting on us, BRILLIANT. When we entered into the apartment we were not surprised, the apartment is exactly how it is shown in the pictures. There was a letter on the table with some things to do and visit, very helpful. My boyfriend loved that the first thing listed was an Irish pub just in front of the apartment, they took into account that we are living in Northern Ireland, NICE!
We had some coffee and a real coffee machine (beautiful coffee), towels, hair drier, blankets, washing machine... everything.
The apartment is close to everything, we walked everywhere. The Coliseum is just around the corner, Piazza Navona is 10-15 min, the Vatican is around 25-30 min, but we tried to visit more things on the way to the Vatican and on the way back (like the Piazza Navona and the Fontana di Trevi)
We will definitely come back to Rome and we won't choose any other apartment. This is the one!!
Thanks to Benedetta and Gena for making this beautiful holidays possible!!
I had a wonderful stay in Benedetta's loft. It has an amazing location: the Colosseo and the Forum are just around the corner and the train station is a bit less than 10 minutes away. There are lots of nice restaurants and bars nearby. I would definitely recommend this apartment.

About the Host, Benedetta
I was a farmer, raising buffalos, then a journalist.
I went then in Africa as a photo-video reporter on humanitarian projects.
I was always writing and shooting and a famous iranian group of artists changed my life.
Slowly I began to be involved in art, writing novels and poems, exhibiting photos and videos. I have worked as theater live director and as a scenographer.
Over these last years I have experimented printing photographs on sculptures, lamps, boxes, radiators, applying photos on interiors and then…? I AM LIVING BETWEEN MARRAKECH AND ROMA doing lots of projects;
but at the end…I am always doing the same thing. Everyday. I am:
