Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We had a short but intense holliday in Rome.
    The room and the whole appartment are well equiped
    and there are nice drawings and more vintage graphics all over the place.
    The centre of Rome is easy to reach by public transport.
    It's the first time we travelled by airbnb, but we recommend it to everyone, since we had an excellent stay in Allegra's appartment.

  • The visit to Allegra and Michele was very great. We came in and it felt like staying with friends. The family is absolutely golden, pleasant and attentive. We became lots of great tips and the best coffee in town. The room is clean and comfortable. Just a great feel-good for nice price. Thank you for the beautiful time with you. We love to come again.

  • This is the perfect place to stay in Rome! Beautiful home, close to public transport and in a beautiful neighborhood with amazing reasonably priced food. Stay here and avoid getting ripped off for breakfast and dinner in the center. Also Allegra makes the best coffee in Italy and the whole family is lovely and unique and helpful. The room is fully stocked with maps and info for getting around, and the bed is super comfy. And not much more expensive than a hostel. :)

    March 2014
  • Our first time in Rome was an amazing experience, we were overwhelmed by the beauty and the dynamic of the city and much appreciated the hospitality of Allegra and Michele. From the moment we arrived we felt welcome and at ease, they offered us wine, a space in the fridge and tips for good neighboorhouds and restaurants. Conclusion: All the good reviews below don't lie; Allegra and Michele are definitly one of the best hosts one could wish for!

  • Annonce correspondant à la réalité.
    J'ai séjourné avec ma fille de 7ans chez la famille d'Allegra.
    Nous avons été bien reçu et mis à l'aise rapidement.
    Nous avons passé un excellent moment en leur compagnie.
    La chambre est calme et agréable, l'appartement des hôtes est chaleureux.
    Le quartier est vivant, nous avons trouvé toutes les commodités au pied de l'immeuble: magasins, snacks, arrêt tramway et bus. Je recommande cette chambre sans hésitation et remercie toute la famille.

  • Staying at Allegra's and Michele's was a real pleasure! Hence, we immediately felt welcomed: i.e., there was always amazing Neapolitanean coffee, great talks and precious advises what to do in Rome (e.g. Capitoline Museums, MAXXI, Francesco (una trattoria veramente romana), etc.), not to forget the two gorgeous bambini Marcello e Georgia. Staying with this wonderful family will definitely spice up your Roman experience! Therefore, and as their beautiful apartment is not only very well connected by public transport, but also located near a park e.g. for a little run, a great bakery to have breakfast or buy sandwiches/pizza for lunch breaks and not far from the Pigneto area, we highly recommend you this address!

  • Dear Allegra and Michele! You're the perfect hosts!!

    You gave us our own space in frige)and also let us use your washing mashine, all the kitchen utensils) it was really nice of you!!Thank you!
    Great thanks for your friendly attitude, your unexpectable gifts, your notes with recommendations, your coffee and a real interest in our resting.
    Your family is very friendly and intresting, we were glad to stay in it.
    Sorry that we didn't find enough time for good chating!
    Good luck, interesting guests and, no doubts, we will recommend your flat In Rome to our friends.
    Your family and your house were an important part of our perfect Rome vacation!!!)))

    January 2014
  • It was my first experience with Airbnb and a wonderful one. Allegra and her family were the best hosts, warm, joyful and interesting. In their cosy, big and bright kitchen, we had great conversations over drinks or dinner/lunch and learnt a lot about Rome, Italians, etc. We felt totally at home! Allegra's place is full with good vibes and joy. Important to me: the house is very clean and quiet. The bedroom is big and is better than on the picture. The area is not central but with easy access to the centre of Rome (bus+train). Popular, multi-ethnic, it was good to be in a non touristy place to live a "real" Italian experience.

    November 2013
  • I was only at Allegra and Michele's place for a few hours really, on my way back home. They were very hospitable and helped me sort out airport transit confusion. If you want to be close to central Rome, this is a bit away, 25 - 30 minutes by bus, but it has a different kind of gritty neighbourhood charm, very cosmopolitan.

    November 2013
  • We stayed with Allegra and her family for 3 nights. Her apartment is accessible by train (tram) and bus from the Roma Termini station and it takes about 15-20mins. The area convenient with shops, restaurants and bars nearby. Our room was clean and comfortable and the apartment is bright and airy. Allegra gave us lots of information- maps, transport, grocery shops, and tourist tips. We felt very at home with the family!

sono nata a livorno, in toscana, ma vivo a roma da circa vent'anni. quando ho deciso di comprare casa ho preferito prenderne una un po' più grande rispetto alle mie esigenze perchè amo conoscere ed ospitare persone nuove da ogni parte del mondo. attualmente lavoro nel campo dello spettacolo (cinema, teatro, pubblicità e se proprio devo tv) come costumista, e il mio compagno, conosciuto su un set dieci anni fa, lavora come operatore di macchina da presa. i nostri figli sono nati e cresciuti in questa casa, dando molto valore al rispetto per gli altri ed al vivere serenamente in mezzo a tante diversità. la nostra casa è molto colorata ed accogliente, e voi sarete sempre i benvenuti.
