i really love to meet people from the entire world, and help you to know my wonderful city
My wife and I stayed here recently and I must say the place was impeccably clean! Irene always made sure that we had something available to snack on and breakfast was unbelievable. The location is very close to the Vatican, coffee shops, Pharmacy, and Restaurants.
Irene and her friends were excellent and would highly recommend a stay. My wife and I are from the USA and they more than met our (website hidden): Irene also coordinated a Taxi ride for us to the port for our cruise and saved us almost 100 Euros!!!!
They were great, gave us everything we needed, we enjoyed our stay very much! About a 15 to 20 minute walk to the Vatican. Really enjoyed our stay!
Irene met us within 5 minutes of our arrival. She provided great info and tourism advice. The apartment was extemely clean and nice, just as displayed in the pictures. Her mother was very welcoming and ensured we had plenty of breakfast and access to the kitchen at all times. It was also serviced daily, which was nice. Apartment was approximately 10-minute walk from the Metro and very close the Vatican. There was a bit of street noise at night, which can be expected. We loved the apartment and would recommend it to others!
Staying at casa Boschi was like visiting friends because of the hospitality, warmth and generous helpful advice. We stayed at the B & B and then we moved to lovely Maria's home where she served breakfast anytime and introduced us to her wonderful home, complete with photos and daughter Roberta, who was kind enough to provide two guitars for my grandson who missed his guitar. He was so grateful he played a recital for Maria and Roberta and took requests! We could not have enjoyed ourselves more without wonderful Irene who was gracious and kind in making our travel arrangements. Thank you Chiara, Maria, Irene, and Roberta!! Hope to visit you again soon! Ciao! Patricia, Isabel and Aaron (nipote)
There wasn't much of an atmosphere. It was like you were renting a room in an apartment but this seems to be common in Italy. The bed was comfortable as was the room, no telephone reception at all in the apartment. Great generous breakfast.
Great place to stay, great breakfast. I was nervous at first when we arrived at the front door and no one was there but Irene eventually showed up to let us in. Very clean. Would stay here again.
We all had a perfect four night stay at Gentile Boschi all five of us including three young children. The Boschi were very helpful booking transportation for us on arrival very late in the evening and had stocked the fridge and cupboards with breakfast food and great coffee and came by with fresh bread every second day. The apartment is close to metrostation Ottaviano and a number of useful busslines 30X, 70 and 23 connecting to all the sights. The area is residential and enables reasonable prices in cafees, shops, delis and restaurants just outside the touristic zone with all the ripoff monglers. Highly recommended for anyone that likes functional, clean, quiet and easygoing.
we had a nice stay at the BnB. it's a big apartment with different rooms, so you just share the kitchen. the location was nice 300m from the Vatican, transport was a little difficult but Rome is all about walking, but there are frequent buses that goes into town.
I had forgotten to let Irene know the time of our arrival, and her dad greeted us within 15min of our phone call. and they are super nice and helpful, patiently directed us how to get around Rome.
The fridge is always stocked with food, and there's breakfast every morning with Irene and her mom Chiara, who makes really good cappucino!
we were 3 girls staying in the room and we all enjoyed our stay in Rome at Irene's BnB. definitely recommend!!! :)
I had a very nice experience during my stay in the Boschi's apartment. Although it was not Irene herself greeted us, it was actually her mother, Chiara. She prepared us the breakfast even though it was already passed 10 am. She also recommended us the place of interest in Rome.
She was very friendly and helpful. Before leaving the apartment, she booked a taxi for us to the central station. It would probably be hard for us as we don't speak Italian.
I highly recommend this apartment to anyone who wish to stay in Rome. Chiao!
