I love cinema, I'm passioned about this that is also my work, I'm working in photography. My name's is Francesco!
Thankyou for a fantastic apartment to stay in in Rome! We had the best time at Francesco's apartment which was the perfect base to explore Rome from. Only a 10 min walk to the Vatican and equipped with everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Francesco's Dad welcomed us to the apartment and showed us round as well as giving a few tips on where we could go to buy some beers and food to bring back to the apartment!
Communication with Francesco prior to my arrival was excellent and he was able to answer any queries I had very quickly which made planning our trip so much easier!
If I'm ever in Rome again I would definitely stay here again!
We liked Francesco and his apartment very much. It was a lovely oasis to return to after a hectic day of sightseeing. There were many special features... Good bathrooms, nice architecture,great location away from tourist crowds. It was large enough for two couples to be comfortable for a week.
I stayed at Giona's House during 24-27th May. The apartment is surprisingly spacious for a family of 4 people, and is also well located. Metro is only 10 min walk, and it took us everywhere fast. It was also very functional, meaning that it had everything that can be needed by a family, and it was all working. We had a great time, and we will go there again!
Fantastic apartment very close to the Vatican in Rome. It felt like a real Roman experience living in a beautiful spacious apartment on the fourth floor.
We are a family of two adults and two young kids, and we all had a wonderful week in Rome. The kids loved the apartment too, especially the tiny elevator!
The apartment is also near lots of little market and food shops, and has easy access to the bus and metro, and is an easy stroll to the Vatican. Perfect base to explore Rome. Highly recommended by this family. Thanks Francesco!
Giona's House and Francesco acomplished all our expectatives and beyond. Was a great experience, everything as Francesco said in the description. Francesco himself was a great discover too, very friendly and helpful. We have a minor accident in Rome and Francesco help us to resolve the issue. The house is well comunicated, 12 min walking of Vatican City , very clean, good natural lighting, market and restaurants very near. Was a great trip.!!
Francesco and his father were very kind and gave us very useful information. The house is very big, clean, very well decorated and conveniently located. They provided us fresh milk, toasts, tea and everything for breakfast.
We recommend this house and will return next time we will visit Rome!
Giona's House was the perfect stay for me and my family when we visited Rome for 4 days. The apartment is very spacious, clean and very well located. A subway is very close, but we only took it twice; the apartment is at walking distance from most of the things we wanted to see. Francesco was very helpful: he offered to pick us up from the airport and recommended various restaurants in the neighborhood.
Francesco's father met us at the apartment and showed us around; he was very friendly and helpful.
The apartment was spotlessly clean, spacious, with comfortable beds, a good shower and fully equipped kitchen. Our hosts were even kind enough to leave us some fresh milk and mineral water.
The apartment is about a ten minute walk from the entrance to the Vatican museum, about the same distance to the local metro station, and with a bus stop just around the corner. Plenty of places close by to grab a bite to eat, a coffee etc.
All in all a great stay - highly recommended.
We had a very lovely stay at Francesco's. The place is very clean and bright, located in a really great area - very near Vatican City by foot and there were plenty of restaurants around. Francesco's father, Alberto met us and explained everything we needed to know. Both he and Francesco were very accommodating. We once had a problem with switching on the heating at night but when we called Francesco to ask about it, they both did not hesitate to come to the apartment to fix it even though it was already in the evening. and we also loved how they stocked the kitchen with the essentials to start our stay right!
Over all, we would definitely recommend Francesco's place to family and friends and to anyone looking for a place to stay in Rome. Looking forward to staying here again the next time we visit.
My 2 girlfriends and I stayed at Giona's House for 4 nights and absolutely loved it. It is close enough to everything to be able to walk to most of main monuments (Vatican, Castel Sant'Angelo, Piazza Navona, etc) the but sufficiently away for the main tourist hubs that you feel you are actually living the Roman life.
It is spacious, luminous, quiet and very clean. We were hosted by Francesco's father who explained to us how everything worked around the house. We never saw Francesco but he was prompt to respond when I texted him to get some advices on restaurants in the neighborhood. We would definitely go back to Giona's House!
Gentile, educato, rispettoso e particolarmente simpatico.
Un' ottimo ospite e un' ottima persona.
Fantastic house in the center of Rome. Francesco is very kind.
