We arrived to Italy two weeks ago and we stayed for a week in the Butterfly apt.
The place is wonderful, very clean, cozy and quiet. We enjoyed facilities, including Metro two blocks from apt., stores, little coffee shops, places where to eat, etc.
The Vatican is very accessible, you can walk and be there in 15 minutes, the walk is nice. The place is safe, during our stay we never experienced any fear to walk late at night. We really want to come back soon. we are in love with Italy.
I almost forgot, Paola and Alberto (son) received us with bottle of wine and lovely and helpful maps, information, etc. Thank you so much!

We spent two weeks in Paola apartment. Close to the metro and easy to walk into the city across one of many bridges over the Tiber. A very comfortable apartment with spacious bathroom, bedroom and living area. Loved the balcony for fireworks watching and listening over New Years. Paola was excellent in communicating with us before our arrival and generous to us. Her son who met us at checkin was very kind. Highly recommend people stay here.
We had a wonderful stay in Rome - the apartment was perfectly located for the Vatican museums and the supermarket, and even though it is not in the centre of the city, we really enjoyed walking in across the river every day. We would definitely stay again and will certainly be recommending it to our friends. Thanks!
Our decision to reserve with Paola was influenced by the many glowing reviews that we read. We were not mislead and are happy to add comments.
Prior to our arrival, Paola had provided us with advice concerning transfer to her address from the airport and with her cellphone number. We called her from the airport to let her know that we were on our way and she and her son Alberto were waiting to greet us. They pointed us in the direction of the nearby Carrefour market and Metro station (both less than five minutes away) and gave us tips on how to use public transportation. They also had prepared a restaurant guide.
Paola provided fresh fruit, a bottle of wine, juice, cheese, which was more than enough to satisfy our hunger until we could go to the market.
The apartment is clean, bright, spacious and comfortable. The windows have shutters that kept the bedroom dark to permit restful and uninterrupted sleep, The balcony, accessible from the kitchen/dining area, is furnished with table and chairs and overlooks the street below. The kitchen is fully equipped with all necessary appliances, dishes and utensils. In our seven day stay, we also made good use of the washing machine.
On the morning of our departure, Paola and Alberto came to say good bye and to ensure that we had a cab waiting to take us to the Termini.
Our first visit to Rome and our first experience with Airbnb were unqualified successes, enhanced to the greatest extent by our secure and comfortable accommodation and especially by the warm, caring and friendly nature of our hostess Paola.

Paola's appartment is very comfortable, spaceous and clean and Paola is a very friendly and supporting host! Supermarkets are just around the corner as is metro station. You can also reach the centre by foot, if you like walking, what we did several times. Recommended for those looking for quality stay for a good price!
We loved our stay in the Butterfly apartment — it felt like home away from home! The apartment is conveniently located about 2 blocks from the Cipro Metro station and about a 10-15 minute walk to the Vatican Museum entrance — with grocery stores, wine bars, and restaurants all close by. From the Cipro stop, we could get to all the main city spots via train in under 20 minutes (Colloseum, Galleria Borghese, Spanish Steps), making it perfect for exploring. The apartment is located in a very secure building, that looks like it was newly renovated. The apartment was spotlessly clean and well equipped with everything we needed for our stay. Paola was awesome — she met us at the apartment, showed us where everything was at, how the keys worked, and even had a bottle of wine, olives, and fruit waiting for us. She also left print outs of restaurant suggestions, transit maps, and information on visiting the Vatican. The secure parking was a great bonus, as we had a rental car for a few days and it was very convenient to know we had a spot in the garage when we got home. We loved ending our days with a glass of wine on the balcony. We couldn't have felt more at home and would highly recommend this apartment to anyone visiting Rome. Thank you, Paola!
comfortable apartment, easy parking, good location. Paola is flawless
хорошая квартира , все необходимое есть . Рядом метро , 2 супермаркета , если выйти из калитки дома и пройти 2 квартала влево и 2 квартала вниз - попадете в хороший итальянский ресторан , не туристический . Нам очень понравилось
Paola and her son, Roberto, met us at the apartment. She offered to meet us at the CIPRO Metro Station, but we chose to take a taxi from the train station. She spent time showing us how to use everything in the apartment.. the stove, microwave, the automatic window blinds, and the washer. She left a bottle of wine and some snacks. She was very helpful in answering our questions about using Rome's public transportation, and left some helpful guides for us to use. The apartment is situated in a local neighborhood and close to a super market, metro station and bus stops. She apologized for the elevator not working. The apartment is on the second floor, but we didn't mind using the stairs. The apartment is a nice size, and clean. The double bed was comfortable. We walked to the Vatican which took about 20 minutes. Overall, we enjoyed our stay there and would recommend her apartment.
I would highly recommend this apartment. It was quiet large, comfortable, and spotlessly clean. Well located for our needs and the host Paola and her husband greeted us warmly. They even left us a lovely bottle of wine and some fruit.
