paolo is a great host and we had a wonderful new years in rome.
the apartment is very nice as advertised with all amenities, a lot of small little touches that makes you feel like you almost know your host. walking distance to supermarkets and public transportation was appreciated. all in all, i would definately recommend to stay with paolo.
We stayed at Paolo's gorgeous home for 6 nights right after Christmas. Paolo was the most gracious host and an absolute gem. He personally picked us up from the train station and drove us to his apartment. When we arrived, he had a bottle of champagne and a New Year's cake waiting for us, as well as a beautiful watercolor painted by his wife that said "Welcome to Rome!" The fridge was stocked with beer, Coke, and water which we were welcome to have. He also had coffee to make espresso in the mornings.
Paolo was very responsive through texts and emails. In the mornings, he would text us the weather and ideas of activities to do that day- things we would have never known about. He was so kind and helpful and made our stay fantastic.
As for the apartment- it is GORGEOUS! Very spacious, great light, and artfully decorated. Lots of room, clean, and comfortable. The bed was very comfortable and it was wonderful to have a washing machine on hand after traveling for a week already. It is walking distance to the Colosseum and minutes to the cab stand and Pyramide metro stop. We are walkers, and on our first night there walked from Paolo's to the Spanish Steps- a bit of a walk but so lovely and quite doable. The neighborhood was great, safe and quiet.
I would absolutely recommend anyone to stay at Paolo's because of his wonderful hospitality and beautiful home. Thanks, Paolo!
grazie, grazie, grazie!
I .hope to see you again ,here or U.S. and to spend more time toghether
Kisses from Rome.

This was my first time using Airbnb, and my experience could not of been better. Our host Paolo was so welcoming and helpful. We had a few times when we needed his assistance and he was responsive and always a great help, even when my husband was late arriving and kept Paolo waiting, he still had a smile for us.
The Apt was exactly as advertised, it was comfortable and made us feel like we were home. It had everything we needed including a huge selection of music that we relaxed to after hectic days of sightseeing. The location was also perfect for us as the train station is about 3 blocks away and the bus stop is right in front of his Apt. We also loved it being so close to Eatly, we would go there about every other day and bring home ready to eat meals it was a great way the spend some time and cut back on eating out. The Apt is very secure and I felt comfortable and safe.
If we are lucky enough to ever make it back to Rome I would be sure to try to secure Paolo's apt.
I would rate my overall experience with Paolo as 5 stars.
To sum it up Host, Apt, and location were all 5 star for us.
The apartament was great, big and lovely. We were very well welcomed by Paolo. It was very helpful to be received by him in the train station, Paolo was very nice. The apartment everything you need to be comfortable.
Fantastic house. Modern and full equipped. Good location at 2 subway stops from Colosseum. Paolo is very friendly. I fully recommend this apartment and will come soon again myself :-)
We had a great time in Paolo's b&b place. He offered us an amazing apartment to stay in Roma. Paolo picked us from train station and showed us his place. The apt is organized very well. It is a model place with one bedroom and a comfortable living room. Exactly like the photos on airb&b. We highly recommend this place!
This apartment was amazing! Very clean, spacious and convenient, just 5 min walk from Roma Ostience train station and a bus stop out the front of the apartment. Paolo is a fantastic host, very friendly and helpful! Our plane had been delayed a few hours and he was kind enough to waited for us to arrive. He is very well organized with a folder of information of nearby restaurants and sightseeing maps. Paolo gave us great recommendations for nearby places to see and eat, he also left us a bottle of wine, snacks, some cold drinks and milk in the fridge. The apartment is on the 3rd floor and had everything we needed, elevator, tv, coffee machine, air conditioner, wifi and washing machine.
Most of the the places to see are only a few stops away with the train or bus, although we walked to some including the Colosseum which takes about 20 min.
We highly recommend Paolo's apartment and will definately stay there again the next time we visit Rome.
Grazie di tutto,
Attilio & Rose
You cannot go wrong with Paolo's apartment!!! Fabulous location, well decorated, modern and Paolo is awesome. Very comfortable in short.
The apartment is a short walk from the Piramide metro plus a train station. By metro the coliseum and the main ruins of the Roman empire are only two stops away. And if you are leaving/arriving by air - the train station has a local train that is very convenient to the airport. You can also walk to the main ruins of Rome and some of the other sites - I highly recommend that as it is a pleasant walk.
There is a wonderful high-end gourmet food store nearby called Eataly where you can buy delightful bread and prepared goods as well as basic food stuffs. Definitely try the bread...
Paolo was fabulous - he picked us up at the metro and also gave us a ride to the train station saving us from being drenched in an awful thunderstorm. He is very well organized as there are sheets of paper describing nearby restaurants/sites. Paolo is a very genial person overall.
The only possible downside for some folks may be that the apartment is on a relatively busy road - so if you are the type that needs quiet while the windows are open this may not be the apartment for you. But there is an air conditioner so no need to open the windows in summer.
Staying at Paolo's lovely, spacious apartment and getting to know him was a real pleasure, and an important part of our two weeks in Rome. The apartment is easy to reach by subway and bus (there's a bus stop right outside; and the train from the airport stops nearby); the rooms are modern and stylish, with many personal touches; there's every convenience (wifi, tv, washing machine, elevator) and even two tiny balconies filled with plants. We felt as if we were living in Rome, not merely being tourists. Paolo gave us great recommendations for nearby places to see and eat, and we loved discovering our neighborhood (San Saba, the pyramid, the Protestant cemetery, the Roman walls, the nightlife in Ostiense) as well as having a home base from which to explore all of Rome. A splendid play to stay and return to! Thanks Paolo!
next time you'll find a lot of wastebasket!
Me and my husband fell in love with Paolo's apartment the moment we stepped into it.. Big, clean and absolutely lovely! About 5mins walk to the nearest metro/train station.. Paolo is a great host too! Picked and drove us from the metro to the apartment, and even drew on the map to show us location on where to find food.. Mrs Parrano even prepared a lovely card to welcome us.. Great stay! Highly recommended! Will stay here again if we have a chance to visit Rome again.. Paolo, grazie~!

Paolo is verry nice person, neat. He is agreeable to communicate and it was a pleasure to have him as our guest. I highly recommend it to everyone.
Paolo is a really friendly guy who is easy to communicate with and easy to accommodate. He was only here for a short time but i found him to be really pleasant and left the place as tidy as he found it. I would recommend Paolo to anybody hosting on Airbnb.
Paolo was a great guest! He was courteous and considetare in every way. Highly recommend!
It was a true pleasure to have Paolo and Laura as our guests. They clearly communicated about their plans for each day and were a lot of fun to be around. They were tidy and quiet. We had some nice chats with them and we especially loved hearing them speak Italian! We highly recommend them to stay with you. You won't be disappointed! Ciao!
Wow, what a great couple enjoying another trip to the US. It was great to share a light breakfast and hear of their travels. Great folks that I would love to host again!
