Interaction with Guests
I always welcome my guests at the apartment, but I respect their privacy. I want to be sure that they feel at home and that they contact me in case they need help or informations.
I love this quarter: Prati. I live here since the 80's and I always find what I need without taking a car.

Roberto was an amazing host. Followed up before and during the stay to ensure everything was perfect. The location is very convenient to the metro station and within a reasonable walk to many areas of the city. The kitchen/laundry area was well stocked (though we didn't use it much) and the bedroom and living rooms were comfortable and inviting. The WiFi is, of course, always helpful when trying to avoid international data usage on your smartphones - but was a bit slow (I'm used to superfast connection speeds apparently). Would certainly stay here again.
I looove the place.
The location is superb! It is very close to metro station, surrounded with a lot of tratoria and cafe. It is also walking distance to Vatican City. Roberto has been very helpful and he provide us with complete kitchen equipment and ingredients so it is very comfortable to stay here. Tx Roberto!
Tout était comme prévu et vraiment parfait: localisation, propreté et état des lieux, disponibilité du locateur, etc. J'y retournerais sans hésiter.
Everything was as expected and really super : location, the apartment itself (very clean and as described) neat, availability of the renter, etc. I would return without hesitation.
Our stay at WikiRome was overall very nice. Roberto was a very accommodating host, and we enjoyed our experience there.
PROS: Lots of amenities provided, including a coffee maker (since it's very hard to find filtered coffee in the city). Roberto maintained regular communication and was always so great about suggestions and guidance about the apartment.
CONS: My husband and I left with just a few bug bites, which may have been from the room. While the room was close to a metro station, the subways tend to get very crowded and do not always feel like the best alternative, though great areas like the Vatican, Campo de' Fiori and the Parthenon are within easy walking distance.
Many thanks to Roberto again for his hospitality.
Roberto and apartment exceptional in every way. Apartment exactly as pictured. Location close to Metro and ideal for traveling the city. Roberto is a true gentleman. Kudos, and Five stars.
Excellent apartment! Stayed for 4 nights. The apartment had everything we required. Very clean, Comfortable bed, bathroom, kitchen, washing machine and dryer combined, lounge, air conditioned. Roberto gave a lovely welcome and showed us through the apartment, hints on where to go and how to get there. It was the little extras that make all the difference, there was a bottle of milk in the fridge, coffee, olive oil, balsamic vinegar. We couldn't wait to cook a vege dish after travelling for over 3 weeks eating out all the time.
It was walking distance, about 10 minutes to the Vatican, lots of restaurants, the metro was just across the road. We jumped the metro and a few stops down was the colosseum. There was only one thing that would have topped it off was to have an English Channel on tv and/or access to download a movie for the end of an exhausting day out! All in all, it was fabulous!
I booked this Apartment for my parents who were celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary and travelling through Italy. Roberto was an incredible host and helped me get information along to my parents who wanted to see a mass at the Vatican. My parents told me that Roberto was very welcoming and called two days after they checked in to see if there was anything that they needed. My wife and I are thinking about planning a trip to Rome and hope to stay at this location!
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.
