The apartment was fantastic! It is in a fun neighborhood, has very easy access to the Metro, and there are plenty of great places to eat right nearby.
Roberto is a wonderful host - he met us at the door, made sure we had everything we needed, and checked in periodically to make sure things were going well. He's also just a nice person.
The apartment itself is wonderful and just as advertised. It was a lovely space, warm and inviting, in pristine condition, and with the amenities that make traveling easier. The two bedrooms were perfect for travelmates who needed separate space. Overall we were very comfortable and glad to have such a great home base in Rome.
Thank you Roberto! The apartment was just right and provided a nice quiet and cool place to come home to after a long day of sightseeing. Roberto had milk, water, juices and snacks to welcome us. He was very informative about the neighborhood which was welcoming and safe and available for any questions or assist if needed. Leonardo provided an informative and safe ride to airport!
We had a great time here on our trip in Rome. Very nice apartment in a great area for restaurants and public transport near the Vatican.
Roberto is the perfect airbnb host. He was extremely helpful, and cared deeply about us having a great time. He met us promptly, had a lovely basket of food waiting for us and inquired regularly as to whether we needed anything else.
The apartment was ideally located, quiet and exactly as presented.
We would highly recommend staying at WikiRome if you plan a trip to the area.
Thanks so much Roberto!!
we really liked this apartment. I and my father could have seperate room with double size bed. spacious and clean room! good location just near the metro and bus station in 1 min. we use roma pass so it was really convenient to get to anywhere. Host is really kind. recommend it!
Roberto was a great host! He help us with everything, we left in the middle of the night and he helpt us to book a taxi for us. We had NO problem. The aparment had all the things you needed and the area is very good. We can recomend this apertment and host to all and we will definitely come back to his apartment next time we visit Rome.
La casa se correspondía perfectamente con la descripción del anuncio. Una casa bien equipada, limpia, con todo tipo de cosas y utensilios, toallas...y con aire acondicionado. Durante mi estancia a penas fue necesario utilizarlo, pero me parece muy importante disponer de él por el calor.
El anfitrión muy bien, nos estaba esperando en casa cuando llegamos, nos dio todo tipo de explicaciones y muy bien. Muy atento y rápido para todo lo que puedas necesitar. Además, los meses previos después de haber contratado la casa, él siempre estuvo disponible para aclarar cualquier consulta rápidamente.
La casa tiene una parada de metro muy cerca y el barrio está bien, con muchos restaurantes y tiendas. Y además, muy cerca del Vaticano para ir andando.
About the Host, WikiRome
I'm not from Rome but I I love the history and the past of this city. I work in a used books store and I write plays for theater and cinema. I opened WikiRome 2 years ago and I like meeting other citizens of this small, big world.
