The room is Beautiful like photo.
Room is near by Vatican,only 5 minutes walk.
It's very important because Vatican is too very crowded ,must on the long queue at early morning.
And other famous tourist spot is in the walking distance.
Elvio is so kindly and friendly!! I highly recommend.
Elvio è stato molto gentile ci aspettava davanti al palazzo per consegnarci le chiavi all'orario prefissato e si è resto disponibile per darci informazioni sulla città. L'appartamento è in una bellissima posizione per girare la città e abbastanza confortevole, un po' datato l'arredamento ma per una notte o due va bene. Colazione ok per essere in appartamento. Uniche note negative sono state il decoder non funzionante in una delle due camere, la lavastoviglie non funzionante (se si resta per più giorni può diventare un problema, noi avevamo solo una notte e ci è stato detto di lasciare i piatti sporchi nel secchiaio), ma soprattutto il fatto che il proprietario ci ha chiamato per chiedere conto della tavoletta di uno dei wc che abbiamo trovato già rotta al nostro arrivo e di cui non ci eravamo voluti lamentare per non essere troppo pignoli. (Manca un fermo di ancoraggio e la tavoletta di muove di lato, niente di grave). Insinuare che l'abbiamo rotta noi non è stato molto cortese.
Elvio was very welcoming and I would recommend staying here. It was not only close to St. Peters it was also less expensive than any of the rooms my friends booked in the area. The description was accurate and the rooms were very clean.
I feel so lucky that I found this place as it was just perfect for my stay in Rome. Elvio is a wonderful host. So helpful and very kind. The room and private bath are immaculate; there is a cute little shared kitchen where you can do a bit of cooking, but basic breakfast items are also included with the room. Bonus: it's cleaned everyday! Love the close to Vatican location; I walked most everywhere, plus bus stops and a taxi stand are nearby. Recommended!
We really enjoyed staying here! The room was very spacious and the bathroom was also a very good size. We were able to lock our room and our bathroom. The apartment is also nice and spacious with a kitchen and dining area, both with balconies viewing St. Peter's Basilica. It was a great location, just a few minutes walk to the bus and metro station as well as the Vatican. The neighborhood was quiet and there were several markets and restaurants very close. Elvio was a great host, meeting us to let us in and providing us with maps. He was very responsive and helpful. My only complaint is that the bed is very hard. Otherwise, it was a great stay!
The room (appartment) was as i expected it from the photos on Airbnb. You can really see San Pietro from the kitchen's balcony! Nice.
It was a quiet area. I had no problem finding sleep. I felt comfortable in my room and bathroom. They were clean.
The breakfast was good compared to italian breakfast habits (Espressomachine with Capsules, Instant Coffee, Toast, Marmalade, Cornflakes, Milk, Butter, a fridge incl. freezer that you can use for your own stuff). If you are from Germany and expect a german breakfast: Forget it! But it's the same all over italy. Different countries - different (breakfast) habits!
When you arrive by Metro (Station "Ottaviano") you will have to walk approx. 15 min to get there. On that way you will meet thousands of tourists and you will cross the famous San Pietro place of the vatican. I saw the pope when i arrived on a sunday! From San Pietro to the Bnb it takes you not more than 5 minutes (walking).
But you can also take the bus number "64" from Termini in direction San Pietro to get there. One station is located directly in the street. 1 Minute walking distance from the Bnb. The bus will probably be totally crowded because it's a tourist line that passes all the important areas.
Contact with Elvio was absolutely easy and relaxed. He is answering immediately to airbnb messages. He speaks english fluently.
My experiences were positive. Thumbs up for Elvio and his BnB!
It was a pleasure.
Elvio was a wonderful host, very helpful and accommodating particularly as I didn't arrive until late. He met me there to show me the apartment and the amazing view from the balcony off the kitchen! The location is great, close to the Vatican City and easy access to the main 'must see' features of Rome as well as great shopping. I found the apartment very comfortable and would definitely recommend it, I will be keeping this in mind for my next visit! Grazie Elvio :-)
Elvio was a nice host and was there when I arrived later than planned. After I'd already "checked out" he provided a key so that I could come and go and also let me store my luggage at the apartment.
The room was clean as described with a shared bath. Safe, quiet neighborhood minutes from Vatican City and easy transportation from the airport (FCO).
I would stay there again.
The room is at a wonderful location!!! It was clean and spacious too. Elvio doesn't leave in the place and he rents another room as well, not sure how the experience would be with other people there. Having said that, it's much like a hotel experience!
Elvio is a very accommodating and professional host. His welcome was good while the quality of apartment and stay were excellent. The location is superb, just outside the walls of the Vatican. Definitely recommended!
