Ciao, mi chiamo Donato, e mi ritengo davvero una persona tranquilla e amichevole! Welcome all!!
My 3 sisters and I arrived past midnight in Rome and Donato and Vallem were absolutely wonderful in waiting for us. it was our 1st time in Rome for all us sisters and to be welcomed like they did, we felt great and safe. The place was clean, we were warm and although it is a bit far from the center of town, we enjoyed the commute. Donato and Vallem took real good care of our Internet needs both at the apartment and mobile. it was a good experience!!
We spent 3 nights at Donato's conveniently located apartment. Shops, cafe, supermarket are just around the corner. Donato and his girlfriend left plenty of useful travel guides and prepared us well for the 3 day visit in Rome. The fully equipped kitchen added another dimension for us to taste the local life.
And the host helped us to arrange a taxi to train station and we are much appreciated to this.
I would definitely recommend this property and shall come back again.
We really liked the Donato's place. We were 4 people and found apartment to be spacious enough. The apartment was clean and situated in quiet neighbourhood. The host was also gracious enough to let us check-in and check-out at our convenience. There is big supermarket just around the corner and many eating places as well.
Only problem for us was the time to reach the city centre, as it was taking us long time (Atleast 35 to 45 mins). Though the flat is located very close to public transport, we had to take the bus to metro stop and then metro to city centre. The buses in Rome are not very good as compared to other places in Europe. The traffic jams and the later arrival of buses made our journey to centre cumbersome.
I am highly recommending Donato & Valery' s place. Apt is big enough for 4 people of our team. Close enough for public transportion. Some guy said that to me Serenissima is far from center of the city. But i didnt feel that way. Donato has allowed us to take his wifi hotspot while we out. That was super cool.
Mr. Donato Fontana and Ms. Valeria were very helpful and excellent hosts. They waited for us to arrive late evening and explained everything we needed to know. The rooms and kitchen were big and nice. Everything were as shown in the pictures and mentioned in profile. We had enough space for our family of 6 including young children. Its centrally located and very convenient to reach anywhere in Rome. Supermarkets, restaurants and public transports were all in close proximity. We would recommend it to anyone travelling to Rome. Thank you Donato and Valeria for everything. We enjoyed our stay in your place and in Rome very much. Thank you.
We really enjoyed our stay at Donato Fontana apartment.
1) The apartment itself was very clean, spacious, when we entered we cannot believe how amazing the place is. It has everything you could need: air conditioning (in each room), nice comfortable beds (one room with one single and one double and second room with one double bed). Many space to put your clothes - each room has it's own closet and furniture. There are many fans, which are great if you do not like the sound of air conditioning at night time. The kitchen is well equipped, you can find everything you need, even the wine opener, washing liquid, etc.
2) the host Donato was a really nice host. He answered to emails very fast, actually less than after 5 minutes. Our plane was delayed for 7 hours, but there was no problem for him and he waited for us to arrive at 4 A.M. and greeted us, gave us keys and briefly introduced the apartment (even at such late time).
3) The place itself. The area at first sight was a little bit strange, but this was because we arrived at night, next day everything looked differently. There is a supermarket and many smalls shops, you can also buy some groceries at the shop near the supermarket, which were really fresh.
4) Transportation from the apartment. There are two trams 5 minutes walk from the apartment, which go to the Termini station. From there you can reach any place you need. The journey with a tram takes 20-30 minutes. There is also another tram which goes straight to St. Peter's Basilica, but the journey takes a long time, since this it the last stop. We preferred taking tram to Termini and then the bus number 40 to St. Peter's Basilica, since it was faster.
There was only one disadvantage - the apartment had only one mirror.
Overall, we were VERY happy that we have choose this apartment and we do strongly recommend it to everyone.
Donato est très accueillant, sympa disponible il nous a bien aider, l'appartement est correct joli un peu loin transport peu fréquent, mais on a passé un agréable séjour. Merci Donato
They are great hosts, great flat for 5 persons, nice apartment and clean.
Great flat for 5 persons. With air conditioner, but when i stay there the air conditioner is not too good, it drops water everytime i used. But it's okay. Nice equipments for home needs. :)
The apartment was excellent - very clean, modern, and spacious. Perfect for our family of 5. Although we never met Donato he was easy to communicate with and very helpful with advice and organising our taxi to the airport. Thanks Donato! Depending on public transport, the apartment is 30-90 minutes to the main attractions in the centre of Rome. Our only advice is that at peak hours, buses to the Metro can be too full to get on (especially with 3 kids), and off-peak they only come once every 30 minutes - so this needs to be taken into consideration when planning your day. Otherwise, the apartment is in a great location, close to shops and restaurants. Highly recommended.
wonderfull, big and clean house, the area is very typical, full of shops, cafés and restaurants. well connected to the centre of the city. a unique experience
amazing place, really well connected and so friendly people!
