"We are a family of 6 (4 teenagers) and this was our first trip to Rome. The location of this apartment was absolutely perfect: right in the middle of the all the action and close to conveniences and major attractions. There were so many terrific shops, grocery stores, restaurants, and of course, Campo de Fiore, right around the corner; Trastevere was 5 minutes away; the bancomats and Taxi a few blocks away (Largo Argentina). We walked to all of the major sites (Coliseum, Pantheon, Jewish Ghetto, Spanish Steps and the Vatican). We spent 9 nights in the apartment which had a lot of character, was very comfortable, and most importantly, VERY, VERY CLEAN. The nighttime was loud well into the wee hours of the morning, but we didn't care. If you are a light sleeper and hate being disturbed, this is not the place for you. However, if you want to be where the action is, Librari flat is perfect. The shower was best in the master bath and the bathtub was relaxing as well. We cooked a few breakfasts, but honestly the food is so amazing and reasonable in Rome, I lost my desire to cook. The WiFi was a bit slow when our 6 devices were all vying for bandwidth to upload our amazing adventures on Facebook. But, in reality- if you need to check email, get directions or make reservations it was totally sufficient. Nicola, the manager was available for any little questions we had throughout our stay. We added the option to get transportation to and from the airport - the driver was prompt and professional. On our next trip to Rome we will definitely stay at Librari Flat again."

"We had a great stay at Paolo's and Ippolita's apartment in Rome. The hosts are 2 very kind people and made us feel welcome from the time we arrived. Ippolita even followed me to the car rental company and helped to sort out an issue with my car rental contract. By the way, as an aside, if you do end up renting the transponder to use on the autostrada, convenience aside, it is a fairly expensive way to zip around Italy. My car rental was CAD 25-26 /day. By the time I paid the taxes, toll fees, etc it was almost CAD 85/day for a 4 day period.
Coming back to the apartment, it is spotlessly clean, roomy, lots of natural light and kitchen is well equipped. Beds are comfortable but if you are a stickler for hard mattresses then make sure you have an extra peroni before going to bed. They don't have a dishwasher but then again who wants to cook when there is plenty of gelato, pizza and great coffee wherever you go! I can only suggest to the owners to keep a couple of fans as the apartment does not have AC's. Apartment is located very close to the Vatican and well connected to the city centre by bus. Train station at Appiano is a 5 minute walk. There are lots of mini markets and some big supermarkets too all at walking distance.
Paolo even let us keep our suitcases after the check out period for a few hours before our ride to the south of Italy in the evening. I think these small gestures make a lasting impression, I will definitely recommend this apartment for those wanting to holiday in Rome."
