Wonderful Home Base for Exploring Rome
"Our family of five (children aged 9, 16, and 18) stayed here for five days. The apartment was perfect for us. Carla warmly welcomed us to the apartment and shared lots of information with us regarding use of the apartment, public transportation, foods to try, and places to eat. A comfortable cot was added to the second bedroom for our son and everyone slept very well. The kitchen was well stocked. The apartment was clean, modern and functional. The linens and towels were very high quality which was not the case in other apartments we rented in Italy. Best of all, the apartment was centrally located in a very nice neighborhood. There were many restaurants, cafes and produce stores in the area. We walked to the Colosseum and Spanish Steps and the train, buses and Metro were all easily accessible. Holy Stairs was really a great home base for exploring Rome. Rodolfo and Carla were responsive and helpful hosts. Rodolfo's emails were prompt, informative and helpful. Carla was so friendly and warm. We traveled lightly so we needed to use the washer. It broke during our first load of clothes and Carla came to the apartment straight from work, checked it out, and arranged for a repair person for the very next morning. We really appreciated how she helped us with this. We would highly recommend Holy Stairs to everyone and hope we have an opportunity to return someday!"

"The many 5-star reviews for the Penthouse are accurate, with one exception which is described below. We spent an enjoyable week at this property in September. Alessandra was very easy to work with and Enrico was charming and helpful (especially when we arrived hours later than expected. The location is excellent with good restaurants and some very nice hotel bars close at hand. As promised the views from the terrace are spectacular. The unit is very clean, the a/c worked well, and the washing machine was a plus. We did not use the kitchen except to heat water and store drinks in the fridge. The bed was comfortable with good sheets.
A few caveats...the water pressure in the showers was very poor (at least while we where we there). This is the primary reason it is not a 5 star property. Be prepared for steps inside the lobby, up from the 5th floor, and inside the apartment. The description of the apartment points this out, but there were more than we expected. The walk up to the apartment via Crispi can be a bit arduous after touring all day, so we often took taxis or the metro home. The metro stop is relatively close but the taxi stand was further. And forget trying to get one in the rain. Finally some new towels might be needed soon. Or perhaps the owners could provide renters with the opportunity to pay for additional towels like our apartment in Sorrento did.
We did enjoy and appreciate the many good qualities of the penthouse and will long remember the spectacular sunsets over the Vatican."
