Hi, I work for Rai, Italian Television from over 25 years but what I love the most is travelling and hosting. My favorite hobby is gardening, I have a large terrace full of plants much loved by my three funny cats, one black, one red and one grey.
Wij hadden een heerlijke tijd in Rome, mede dankzij de uiterst vriendelijke en behulpzame Host, Sveva Nicoletti. Het appartement was ruim met een prachtig groot balkon aan de achterkant op zuid.
Ijskast gevuld en alle voorzieningen werkten perfect. Ligging ten opzichte van de stad prima mede dankzij metrohalte voor de deur.Ook de maaltijdservice naast de deur, evenals een ontbijttentje en heel goed betaalbaar. We hebben nooit gekookt.
We had a lovely time at Sveva's apartment. It is gorgeous -- exactly as pictured, and very spacious, comfortable and quiet. The refrigerator and pantry were stocked with food and drinks for us. The kitchen had all the modern conveniences (nice sized refrigerator and freezer, microwave, coffee maker, dishwasher), a wonderful assortment of dishes, glassware, flatware, pots and pans, as well as an espresso maker. There was a DVD player with a lot of American movies, as well as a wonderful assortment of classical music and games. Sveva (and maybe other guests) had left behind helpful maps and tour books, which we took full advantage of and left ours behind for the next visitor. Although we brought our own umbrellas, there were two large ones just inside the front door for our use.
There is no need to bring your own shampoo or soaps – Sveva provides everything, including shaving cream and disposable razors. The washing machine was very easy to use, and she also provided the laundry soap, softener, etc. There is no dryer, but there is a drying rack with clothes pins that did just fine for what we needed. There also was an iron, ironing board, and sewing basket.
The terrace was fabulous. I only wish we had more time to spend enjoying it, but we were running around Rome so much that we did not make full use of it. Sveva provided a "house book" with information about nearby restaurants, all of which were first rate and very reasonably priced. We ate several meals at the little take away place just outside the front door. There are two gelato stores within a short walk of the apartment, and two grocery stores right across the street.
Metro line A stops right in front of the apartment building, and from there you can get to the Vatican, the Spanish Steps, and Termini stations, among others. The building has a very friendly doorman, who is willing to provide whatever help he can. The neighborhood is safe and easy to get around in. I highly recommend this apartment and would definitely stay there again on my next trip to Rome.
This apartment was perfect for us. The location was very close to the metro station, giving easy access to Vatican and most Rome visits. The apartment was vast, clean and tastefully decorated. Sveva had prepared fresh fruits, drinks and other goods, to make our start easy and feel immediately comfortable. We enjoyed the flowered terrace on which we could have lunch, thanks to the bright sun, even at the end of December! The neighborhood was quiet. We would definitely stay here again.
Sveva stayed at my place in San Francisco for a few days in August. Communication was very easy and straightforward. I would recommend her as a guest.
Sveva was a great guest - we'd be glad to host her again!
Sveva was a wonderful guest. The apartment was in excellent condition after her stay and I would highly recommend her to others.
