Ciao sono Filippo,
Lavoro a Roma e sono un architetto, mi piace viaggiare, cucinare e leggere.
I lived in Filippo's apartment for nearly 2 months.
I can say that I have greatly enjoyed staying there. The apartment is indeed surprisingly quiet for the centre of Rome. There is some noise from the neighbours, an occasional party, a TV working loudly well into the night, even a sound of lovemaking audible through the walls (there is an amorous couple living upstairs). But, overall, I was pleasantly surprised that I was not disturbed too often.
I have met Filippo only a few times, but he made an excellent impression. He is very polite, intelligent and well-mannered person, with excellent English. Whenever he needed to come, he always sent me a note. He brought me a heater when it was cold in the apartment. He also allowed my friend from Portugal to come and stay with me a few days, which was very kind of him.
There is a good fridge there, a sturdy washing machine, lots of lamps, a wide bed. In short, all you need to stay in Rome, plus not a bad view from the window.
The biggest plus by far is the location, which is literally 2 minutes away from the Forum and about 5 minutes walk to the Colosseum. The centre of Rome is right there, at your doorstep, which makes it very easy to explore the Eternal City.
I highly recommend this apartment and wish you a pleasant stay there, as I surely had.
Fillipo was a great host of a perfect place in a great location of one of the most beautiful place we ve seen!
Perfect location! We were steps from the Colosseum and tons of restaurants. There is a piazza and fountain just at the end for the street where you can purchase wine and sit outside. Dreamy! The apartment is up a couple of floors, is super quiet and we loved watching the sunset from the roof deck. The only thing to note is that it can get a little chilly in the bedroom as the heater is in the kitchen (we stayed in January) but there are extra blankets for the bed so no real problem.
Filippo est très agréable et arrangeant. Son appartement est idéalement situé, en plein centre historique, à 5 minutes du Colisée. Nous sommes ravis de cette adresse, même si l'intérieur est un peu froid, nous avons très bien dormi, c'est très calme.
Bon séjour à Rome.
Nel cuore di roma, a un passo dai fori. Posizione incredibile!
Very good location apartment. Everything was great. I recommend this apartment to everyone. Thanks a lot Filippo!
Very comfortable flat. Not a luxury pad, but it's clean, well-kept, has everything you need, and is in a great location.
In the younger, hip residential neighborhood of Monti, you have a lot of fun bars, restaurants, and shops at your doorstep. The Forum and Colosseum are only a couple streets away, while central Rome and all the classic sights are less than a mile walk in the other direction (and a very scenic walk at that).
Filippo is a great host, extremely responsive.
Open the front door... Look left, Imperial Forum, turn and walk right for 5 minutes and you're at the Colosseum. The location of Filippo's place is amazing and the apartment itself is everything you need as a tourist's launching pad to the sights of ancient Rome.
The location was excellent. It was surprisingly quiet. When we were there, there was an Octoberfest going on a block from the apartment, yet we barely heard anything when we were inside with the windows opened. It was great for what we needed.
Filippo was very accommodating of all our delays getting to Rome.
The apartment is in a wonderful neighborhood. Truly great location. It's bare, but it does the trick. Bed is comfortable. We didn't care for the shower, but with this price, we could deal with it. My only issues - there is a limit on the wifi. Keep in mind, the day you check in, other guests have already used the wifi that morning. We were left with no wifi our first day because of this. Also, we did not have the actual apartment number on the directions that print out from airbnb. That's my fault for not checking beforehand, but just know you need to add it to the directions yourself!
Filippo was very responsive and helpful!
Filippo rented one of my rooms in July 2012. Unfortunately I did not have the opportunity to meet him in person, but from the communication in front of the stay I was left with a very positive impression. The room was left in a clean and tidy condition. I hope he had a good stay in Oslo.
Casa da sogno nel cuore pulsante di Roma, con Colosseo, Fori Imperiali e Piazza Venezia a pochi passi e la movida di Rione Monti dietro l'angolo. E poi che dire del mio amico Filippo...un grande Anfitrione! consigliatissimo
