Thank you for your cooperation
We arrived late due to our luggage not arriving but Simon & Francy reacted very nice and friendly. After all when we arrived we had a lady called Dora await us and she showed us everything in the flat and also gave us a map and showed us the most important spots. The flat was very nice and clean and we also liked the bedroom a lot since we were three girls it was perfect for us. Since it was right next to the Colosseum we could explore everything fine by foot. Simon and Francy also checked on us via text if everything is fine which was very nice. We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely come back!
Would definitely stay there again. Fantastic location, walking distance to most historic sites, lots of nice restaurants in the area, yet on a quite street. Dora was very helpful although her English was limited, she did try her best. Thank you.
Good location, near restaurants and even a chemist but also carrefour market. It is also about 10mins walk from the station "station colosseum" and the Colosseo. I would recommend this apartment if you are in Rome for visiting, as transport around is very easy to find.
The host was friendly and somewhat helpful although unkempt and didn’t speak English.
We felt the images online were misleading and portrayed a much higher quality apartment than it was in reality. The apartment was clean and tidy, although there were scuff marks on all the walls, marks on furniture, mold on the bathroom ceiling and the front door had a tissue stuffed in an old lock barrel hole to prevent people looking inside!
Another issue was that the kitchen light wasn’t working and the host offered to replace the bulb if we waited 5 minutes. Two hours later we had not seen the host again and continued on our way to dinner. The next day we asked the host and a colleague of his to not worry about replacing the globe as we wouldn’t be using the kitchen during our stay and didn’t want anyone coming into the apartment while we weren’t there. We were very unhappy to discover that the kitchen light bulb had been replaced when we arrived home later that evening, we felt this was a breach of privacy.
Further to the lack of communication, the single point of contact to the host was via an intercom at the entrance to the building. The intercom was answered by an elderly Italian woman who spoke no English, this made communication very difficult and we found it a very inefficient service.
The only positive note here is that the apartment is located about 500m from the Colosseum which is great for tourist destination, however we would not stay here again.
We are very sorry for all these inconveniences occurred during your stay.
It is clear that there were several misunderstaning with our staff (in good faith) due to the fact that they don't speak English very well. Since we know it, we are always available for our guests via Airbnb or via mobile phone in case of emergency, to provide for this linguistic lack.
We could have helped you if you would have written us via Airbnb, in fact as you can see on Airbnb Statistic we have a "Reply tax" of about 99%, and we always intervene in case of any problem.
We hope to have the opportunity to host you again in the future to offer you a better stay.
Accoglienza ottima, l'appuntamento si trova in un quartiere tranquillo dove è facile raggiungere in poco tempo la metro e le linee dei bus, l'appartamento è come da descrizione, lo consiglio
Nos recibieron muy bien y nos dejaron café, toallas y shampoo para utilizarlo.
El departamento esta cerca del coliseo por lo que uno puede caminar a recorrer todo.
