  • Lovely Apartment, Lovely Host

    "My friend and I stayed at this apartment from 3-7 December. It is in a very good location. We walked to and from all the major sites. And we are two middle-aged women:-) Because of being in city center you need to expect there will be street noise. But it helps to close the wooden shutters at night. It helps with the noise and light. It was fun just to sit at the window and watch what was going on outside. The apartment is located on a quaint, typical old italian street. You feel like a local. There are restaurants and grocery stores located in the same block, so very convenient. The apartment has everything needed. Paola could not have been more helpful or kind. Definitely would recommend this apartment or another one owned by Paola. Grazie, Paola!"

  • Loved the location, but we had some issues

    "I stayed at this property with my husband and three kids (age 15, 13, and 10) for four nights. Our trip did not go smoothly but I do recommend this place. The location was just about perfect. I can still remember the views and scents from the front window. I'd like to list the positives and negatives. POSITIVES 1. Quiet street near the Forum. It's easy to walk everywhere! 2. Plenty of space for my family of five 3. Good AC 4. Comfortable beds 5. Two TVs 6. Wifi 7. A moka coffee maker (including a tutorial by Enzo!) 8. An amazing old building with good security 9. Airport pickup service 10. Helpful owner who answers emails promptly NEGATIVES 1. No mention of city taxes in initial emails. Needed to know exact amount due to language barrier. 2. No hot water (at all) one day. We took cold showers. 3. No water pressure (at all) the next day. We were unable to use the shower or sink. 4. Bathroom much worse than the photos. Small, dirty, and smelly. 5. Couldn't get washing machine to work despite several attempts So the negatives were a bit distracting for me as it was very hot in Rome and we had been traveling for a week already. We really needed showers and clean laundry! For a couple days, we felt like we were camping indoors rather than staying at an apartment. The owner is very nice and tried to help us resolve each issue. I feel confident that she will address the problems for future travelers."

  • Good location

    "N, the property manager, was a wonderful hostess. We arrived a few hours earlier than we had told her, and she still managed to get to meet up with us. Beds were comfortable, and kitchen was great. Great location! My complaint was the furniture in the living room mentioned before was still not usable. I had asked about this when booking the property in the fall and was told it would certainly be replaced by January, but was not. Also, mold in one shower, but believe the property manager has a newborn baby and wasn't feeling well, so give a pass for now."

  • Excellent Apartment and Delightful Neighbourhood

    "We just spent 2 weeks in Rome in Daniela's apartment. We had a great time. The apartment is very comfortable for 2 people. The photos are accurate - but were probably done when the apartment was just renovated and painted. There is some sign of wear and tear now and perhaps it would benefit from a fresh coat of paint soon. This did not in any way detract from our experience or comfort. There is also a bit of clutter including left over bottles of various products from previous visitors. The neighbourhood is a great feature for this apartment. When you look at the neighbourhood on Google, it might not look that great. However there are a lot of hidden gems. First of all, it is very quiet. The surrounding buildings are a medical clinic, 3 or 4 religious residences, and 1 other apartment building. The only noise is occasional street noise and garbage pick up often at 1 or 2 am. There are some really outstanding restaurants all within 1-2 blocks. Club Machiavelli was our favourite. This is imaginative food made with passion! We went there 3 times. If you do go there, please tell the owner that a Canadian couple recommended it. We chatted with the owner a few times. Trattoria Vecchia Roma is very popular with locals and we really enjoyed it. Right next door to the apartment is Caronte. Excellent cocktails. In Rome many places have a sort of "happy hour" where you get a cocktail and free appetizers. At Caronte, you get little tasters of the main courses for the evening. We went there for dinner a couple of times. The menu is more eclectic and is a nice change from the standard Italian menu. Baia Chia is also right next door to the apartment. They specialize in Sardinian style and their seafood is superb. We tried a few other restaurants in other parts of Rome but never found anything nearly as good as the restaurants right in our block! We also used the Norcineria e Gastronomia Cecchini. This is a delicatessen on the corner. They have a great variety of hot and cold dishes that you can take home for a prepared dinner. There is everything you need, including wine. We really enjoyed having a gourmet meal on our patio watching the sun going down. We also enjoyed having Aperol cocktails on the patio along with some tasty cheese from the Gastronomia. For groceries, there are 2 supermarkets within a block that have everything you need. Despar at 1 Via Guicciardin and Conad just of Merulana. We highly recommend this apartment!"
