Real "HomeAway" ... Real Italian Feeling.
Stayed 9 people (5 adults – 4 children) in Cheap&Chic for N.Y. Holiday of 2016 (27th Dec–4th Jan). Having decided for an apartment, was important:
- Multiple rooms
- At least two WC.. avoid morning crowds
- Good heating … freezing is no holiday
- Safe location
- Good & Free wifi
Arranging for so many people, was anxious to have everything secure and well organized. My nightmare was arriving late in Rome and have no place to stay because the owner made double booking or did not show up or have been victim of internet fraud.
The Cheap&Chic (although I do not like this name) met most of our requirements and the honesty of the description & subsequent contact with the owner made me feel “SAFE”.
Checked everything, walked the Tempio di Dia via Google Street view, saw the house from every corner, investigated the neighborhood etc etc. Even after booking, Pietro was always there to help with any concern. I was never so much relaxed on a trip abroad as on this case.
On first view, the house was a pleasant surprise (as one said “much better than pictures”)..
- heating was very fast and good (the building is populated as such not cold),
- lots of space for all of us, very cozy living room that we enjoyed very much lazing around.
- COMPLETE, the house is a “Real Homeaway”. You get impression as the last tenants escaped to a new life living all behind. Also funny and relaxing finding notes everywhere … even how not being locked out the door.
- KITCHEN … originally thought as useless but very handy after the first restaurant bills. Such a crowd could not be fed well in any other way.
- not to forget welcoming decorations and amenities waiting us on first opening the door.
- Area was typical Italian workers living, everything was there (email@example.com€ seated), no strange faces, never felt risking coming back with last bus. Next to woods area away from noise very near to multiple transport and near to city (walkable).
On the negatives were:
- Took some training to adjust the hot water while douching.
- Some furnishings are basic and aged but is overcome by the completeness and functionality as described, good and comfortable beds and couches all very clean warm and tidy.
Fully recommended for groups of 4 or over, families etc, or alternate travel i.e. Rome living like Italians. No air-condition but suppose due to open woods area, windows and balconies all around and nice patio in front would be OK for Summer.
Thank you very much for your nice and complete description of the house. We are glad your stay was pleasant, so compensating our efforts for the maintenance of the apartment.
We keep waiting for your next visit to Rome.
Appartement spacieu et bien placé pour la visite de Rome
Nous avons passé un très bon séjour chez Pietro, son épouse et Stefano qui sont très accueillants .La maison idéalement située pour visiter Rome et se trouve dans une rue proche des transports en commun et de supermarchés.
La maison est propre, confortable et au calme.
Un grand merci à notre hôte pour ce superbe séjour.
E' stato molto gentile portarci dei graditi regali e speriamo di avervi di nuovo ospiti in occasione di una vostra prossima visita a Roma. Grazie per averci scelto.
Très bon rapport qualité prix
Bonnes prestations. Quartier calme un peu loin du centre de Rome mais très bien desservi par les transports publics. Excellent accueil de Pietro qui est de plus très serviable.
Casa vacanza a Roma
Siamo stati ospiti del sig. Stefano per il week end 1-3 novembre 2013 insieme ai nostri bambni. L'appartamento è abbastanza funzionale offrendo tutti i servizi necessari per una buona vacanza in relax a Roma. Consigliamo questo appartamento a tutte le famiglie con bambini; le camere da letto non mancano e l'ampio salone consente di vivere al meglio i momenti trascorsi in casa. Approfittando di una bella e calda giornata autunnale, abbiamo potuto sfruttare il patio per un piacevole pranzo all'aperto.
Concludiamo sottolineando la gentilezza, la cortesia e la disponibilità del sig. Stefano che fino ad ora non abbiamo mai riscontrato nei proprietari degli altri alloggi dove abbiamo soggiorato.
Se dovessimo ritornare a Roma sicuramente ricontatteremmo il sig. Stefano al quale rivolgiamo il nostro più cordiale saluto.
Ida e Giuseppe, Mimma e Rinaldo.
Vi ringrazio delle splendide parole e mi scuso del ritardo con cui rispondo...
Sono molto contento che il vostro soggiorno sia andato bene, forse oltre le vostre aspettative mi sembra, ma sono convinto che fare Ospitalità significa essere sempre molto attenti ai bisogni degli ospiti per cui io dovrei essere la norma, ed i proprietari delle vostre esperienze precedenti le eccezioni...
Comunque vi aspetto di nuovo a Roma quando volete, ora anche con lo scaldaacqua perfettamente funzionante! :-)
grazie ancora ed un abbraccio a tutti voi!
The apartment 'located outside the chaos of the central areas, in a quiet residential area, but well connected to the center (25min, bus and metro), Eur (10min, bus), in Trastevere and the Vatican (20min, bus + metro or city train) to the Termini station (30 min, bus and metro) and the Fiumicino airport (25 min, Railway).
And 'in the south west of Rome, halfway between the center and Fiumicino Airport, in a residential area, green and clean, although it is a 5-minute walk from Via del Trullo, the main street where there are shops and shops, a local market full, a discount supermarket, a supermarket 'normal' and even a small shopping center (take the bus). Taking the City Rail you can 'reach a huge mall, but I doubt that is of interest to tourists ... :-)
Getting around in Rome from the apartment?
Although the surface transport in Rome reach almost every corner of the city, the transport situation and 'very complex and can' be sometimes very slow, so it 'advisable to use the bus just to get to the underground (Metro) or City Rail. Obviously if there are no points close Metro buses are still a good option although it is to be calculated once more 'long.
