My name is Raffaele and I'm 37 years old. I was born in Rimini but I'm living and working in Rome since 6 years.
We really enjoyed our stay at this lovely apartment in Rome. The neighborhood is great and right across the street from the tram that takes you into central rome for access to sight seeing. It is walking distance to the Trestevere piazzas, full of life, energy, good food and bars.
Contrary to what other reviewers mentioned, we did not feel it was loud in the evenings at all and thought it was a nice quiet pleasant street. The bathrooms are clean and modern. We never did meet him but he sent his friends to welcome us on the first day and also to check us out on the last day. The terrace was definitely our favorite part of the whole place, nice and big with a great view. We loved having breakfast outside and also to enjoy a nice bottle of wine after a long day of walking around. It was great that the place had an elevator as we had a stroller with us.
The apartment does not have internet as advertised, but we got free wifi at Coffee Time bar around the corner. Also, although there was AC in the second room, the master bedroom was cool at night with fan and windows open which was very comfortable.
All in all, highly recommended!
A clean, modern apartment with a nice kitchen and a spectacular terrace. The view does not disappoint!
We were two couples staying in the apartment together, so having two full bathrooms was great. It is a nice roomy apartment and we felt like we had plenty of space. The location is good, a short walk to good restaurants, bars and shops. Near a busy street, but being so high up we weren't bothered by noise.
We didn't meet Raffaele - he had a friend meet us for check-in and check-out, but everything went smoothly. Raffaele was very flexible with check-in and check-out times which was really helpful for us. He even let us book an extra day at the last minute. He is a really accommodating host!
The only negative, which for us was a big drawback, is that there is no internet in the apartment. This is mentioned in the listing, so it was our fault for not reading it close enough. But lack of internet is the reason the apartment gets four stars instead of five from us.
But overall this is a great apartment and we definitely recommend it!
It was nice, that Raffaele was there when we arrived, though our flight was little latein the evening. From the apt in and especially from the terrace you have a very nice view over the city. Nice, that there are two modern bathrooms. As it is at the mainstreet of Trastevere it is quite loud in the night. But this might be usual in many corners of Rome.
Très bien situé ( Tram et bus présents à 50 M dans ce magnifique quartier de Trasteveré ) ce très bel appartement refait à neuf et très propre, ne manque d'aucune commodité, dans un quartier superbe, très vivant, bref, très agréable.
L'Immeuble est très bien tenu. Raffaele est un hôte charmant et très attentionné. Par exemple, la serrure de la porte d'entrés ayant cédé, la réparation s'est effectuée sans délai grâce à Raffaele et ses amis habitant à quelques étages plus bas. La terrasse est génaile...Grande et très agréable avec vue imprenable sur Rome
Unique petit détail un peu perturbant est que seule la plus petite des chambres est climatisée. Il fait très chaud à Rome en Août et il est impossible de dormir autrement que " fenêtre ouverte". Le passage des bus peut éventuellement perturber si l'on omet les boules quiès... Question sécurité, aucun problème: un doorman est présent la journée et l'escalier ainsi que l'ascenceur ne sont accessibles qu'avec une clé.
Bref, parti en couple avec un ado pour une bonne dizaine de jours, nous recommandons vivement cet appartement et n'hésiterons pas une seule seconde à réserver celui-ci lors d'un prochain séjour dans la ville éternelle...Coup de coeur.
Great location! Many walkable sights located nearby plus the buses and street car go right by the street. Amazing city views from the rooftops patio. Fabulous restaurants in the area.
The apartment itself is a nice size, was clean, and had a good air conditioner in one of the bedrooms. But, of you close off the two bedrooms from the rest of the house, it easily cooled both bedrooms together. Nice, modern bathrooms. The kitchen was also nice and modern.
The city itself is a little noisy and you hear it in the apartment, but that is definitely to be expected in Rome.
The reservation was canceled 40 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Rafael and his wife are very friendly. I'm very shame because I could not stay at home due to an emergency trip to Colombia. I practically leave them alone at home. Hope you enjoyed your stay in Ecuador!. Bon voyage and are always welcome. :-)
I got to know Raffaele, Caterina and Michele as incredibly polite and friendly folks and it was my pleasure hosting them. They really were the perfect guests.
They took care for the apartment as it were their own and they left it in spotless condition.
They were very enthusiastic, charming, attentive and friendly. It was fun to meet them, it is always a pleasure to open my apartment to such positive and vibrant people!
I certainly hope our paths will cross again and would wholeheartedly recommend them for any future hosts.
Thank you very much for everything!
