Before we arrived our host messaged us with very helpful information. The apartment was clean and lovely with everything we could possibly need. The roof terrace is superb and we enjoyed having breakfast up there. The key system works perfectly. The area is great - very near the Vatican and piazza del Popolo. The air con was wonderful and such a blessing! We loved our stay and would highly recommend this perfect place to stay.
Francesco was very kind and made sure we would be able to find the apartment easily. It is conveniently located, not too far from the centre and close to the metro. The apartment is very nice, it has everything you need and we loved the rooftop terrace!
Francesco was attentive and always responded to my massages within minutes. My parents stayed in his place for a few days and found the place very comfortable and the neighborhood really cute and superbly located. From what they told me I think this is a great place to stay in Rome. Gracias Francesco! :)
The hosts Francesco and his wife Guiomar are lovely people and really very warm and welcoming. We really appreciated the effort taken by them to meet us and to get to know us. They are the perfect hosts.
The location of the apartment is fantastic. Nice neighbourhood, less than 5 min walk to metro , about 15 min walk to Vatican, close to nice restaurants within minutes and close great shops.
The apartment was very well maintained, spacious and clean. We felt very much at home in the apartment. The terrace was a great feature to have. We had a nice evening supper on it in the moonlight.
We highly recommend this place to others.
This is a fabulous base to explore Rome! It is easy walking distance to the Vatican and the Metro station. We also walked to the Pantheon, Trevi Fountain and Spanish Steps. That's when the kids decided it was too hot and too far but on a cooler day they would have made it to the Colosseum too - so it's a great location :) There are great gelati shops, bakeries and pizzerias, as well as restaurants and cafes very close by. The apartment is spacious and welcoming. The washing machine, although small, was a great inclusion for a travelling family, as was the full-sized fridge. We loved the rooftop terrace too :) Francesco and his family were a delight! We would definitely return here!
Francesco a été très accueillant et répondu à toutes mes questions d'ordre pratique avant notre arrivée.
The host was very welcoming, invited us to his patio for drinks, and provided a good overview of the apartment. He also helped us with directions to the supermarket, bus routes, getting to and from the airport. He was great. The apartment was in a great location, quiet, safe, yet close to everything, it was also spacious. We really loved the rooftop terrace. It was equipped with all we needed for our stay.
About the Host, Francesco
Mi fa piacere che nella mansarda dove sono cresciuto vengano viaggiatori curiosi, con voglia di vedere Roma senza spendere molto.
Viaggiavo come loro. Oggi vivo sotto la mansarda in una casa borghese, fida famiglia, e capita molto raramente di poter fare un breve viaggio, che vorrei molto a ovest o molto a est o molto a sud o a nord.
Mi piace il cinema ed i miei ospiti potranno assaggiarne un po' , magari quei film che parlano di Roma. Mi piace leggere ma ho poco tempo. Sport ? Le scale (tranquilli, per chi vuole c è l'ascensore ed un Ping pong in giardino).
Mi piace la buona musica dal rythm blues, soul, rock alternativo, surf rock.
