The host was a hour late meeting us, which meant we were locked out on the street. The place while between most destinations is close to none which means a good walk to everything. The place was clean and a decent size but there are no actual bedrooms (no doors) and both bathrooms and showers are impossible to stand in if you are over 5&1/2 feet tall. Also the 1 AC unit does not cool the entire place.
Before we arrived in Rome Francesca contacted us and was very kind in offering if we would like her to arrange us transport from the airport to the apartment. We accepted this offer but then our Rome flight was cancelled last minute so we flew to Bari and drove to Rome. Francesca was able to change arrangements, which we greatly appreciated, so that when we arrived in Rome later than scheduled there was a man waiting to greet us at the apartment. He welcomed us and showed us around the apartment and all it's amenities. That apartment does look just like the photos and it is very well equipped. The only downside is the upstairs ceilings are very low. The beds are comfortable and the kitchen has all you need. The last few stairs to the roof terrace are rather steep but it is worth it! It is an amazing sun trap, and my friends and I had to ourselves each evening. The location of the apartment is great, walking distance to all the main sites, supermarkets near by and many bars and restaurants in the near by square. I would definitely stay here again! Thank-you Francesca.
Great communication and very easy. Francesca and Marco took great care of us and made us feel very welcome. The apartment was very clean and well set up, and very close to everything. And the description was accurate. The neighbourhood was very nice as well. It was noisy at night, but I am thinking this is probably on par for Rome?
The host is nice and friendly. The house has long history and adorable. Location is good. Only the upstair is a little low. Wifi is very fast. Anyway, is a good apartment and worth the price.
My first time with AirBNB and what a great experience! The flat is just as lovely as it looks in the photos, spacious, comfortable, amazing location. Just perfect for what we needed in Rome. Francesca and Marco were very helpful (make sure to ask Francesca to set up the airport shuttle, very efficient).
Excellent location within walking distance of all the major attractions. It was warm and well priced and close to markets, supermarket and bakery. Roof top terrace was sunny and private. Needs some money spent on bedding as there were not enough doonahs for 6ppl and pillows were old and flat. A second couch would be handy as the couch sat 2 and the house sleeps 6. Overall a great experience for a good price in central Rome.
This apartment was everything we expected and more. Our two kids 13 and 11 were a perfect age to enjoy and appreciated the quirkiness of it. The style and individuality of this ancient and intriguing apartment played a big part in our wonderful overall experience of Rome.
If you like generic gleaming hotels with room service this place is not for you. When we go on holidays we want to be in the centre of things to get a real feel of the city and you certainly get it here.
The location is just perfect for tourist attractions while having a real taste of day to day life in Rome. The Campo De Fiori just around the corner with its fruit n veg market by day n resturants by night what more could you ask for.
Because of the central location of this apartment you can walk to all attractions but if you have early starts in the Vatican as we had the taxi cost to both vatican and coloseum ws €6/7 each way.
The apartment had all the extras you need like coffee pots , utensils if you needed to cook in ( we never do on hols) washing up liquid tea towels etc. basically everything you need for a self catering stay.
We also enjoyed the roof terrace which yes is a bit tricky to get to but it all added to our enjoyment of it and was nice to chill out there with a glass of wine after a long days sight seeing while the kids relaxed with the very good wifi in the apartment.
Our hosts Francesca and Marco were great answering all our questions including arranging our transfers to and from the airport. The taxi driver Paolo spoke perfect English was very informative on our journey and price was no more than a basic taxi with the convience of a private pick up.
We look forward to visiting Rome and would definitely stay here again as it really made our time in Rome extra special.
Don't forget to try El Forno pizza around the corner (a famous local institution) always great for lunch on the run. Also there is a new restaurant opened " Urban Bistro " just beside the apartment. The two young guys that owned it were great ,the food was fab with a bit of a break from the usual pizza , pasta that you get everywhere. Also prices for the food ,wine and cocktails here were very good with the convience of having it literally on the doorstep.
