Beautiful centrally located apartment

  • 5 of 5

Leo and Francesca were wonderful hosts for my vacation in Rome. The apartment was clean, beautifully decorated, and couldn’t be closer to some of the key Vatican sights. Being only a block from the metro made getting into the city easy and there are plenty of delicious restaurants within walking distance of the apartment. We only had two people on the trip, but the apartment could easily accommodate 3-5. Amenities were as described and I had no complaints with the quality of the room listed. If you are looking for a place to stay by the Vatican for an affordable rate, then this is the place for you.

Thank you so muc for your kind hospitality!

Fantastic home for family holiday

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I visited in October and the weather was wonderful. Warm days and cool evenings. This apartment is a hidden gem. It's one block from the metro Ottaviano stop and a short walk from Vatican City and the main boulevard, Cola di Rienzo. All of Rome is easily accessible by walking or taking the metro from this location. Francesca and Leo were fantastic hosts. Francesca reached out prior to our trip to confirm our arrival time and they were ready to greet us after an overnight flight. She also checked in with us regularly throughout our stay to ensure we didn't need anything. The apartment was very clean and well maintained with plenty of natural light. It's on the third floor and includes an elevator. Leo assisted us with our luggage because there are a few steps to get to the elevator. They showed us the apartment, highlighting how to utilize the stove top (gas fuel) and the washer. It has a lovely balcony to recharge after a long day of sightseeing or enjoy breakfast. You'll also find space to hang laundry to dry off the balcony. The windows are large and allow a lot of light. There is a restaurant across the street and you may wish to close them in the evening to minimize the noise. We didn't find it too loud in general. The living room is cozy and comfortable; Bedrooms are spacious and as described. One has a double bed and the other bedroom has two twin beds. It was great having two bathrooms available. We greatly enjoyed the coffee/tea station and regularly picked up items at a local bakery around the corner. Some evenings you may smell the baking. There is a convenience store a few doors down and larger grocery store 2 blocks away. Francesca provides many resources in the apartment and a listing of favorite restaurants. The wifi saved on the international data plan for our mobile/cell phones. We really enjoyed being in a neighborhood. Francesca and Leo were very accommodating in helping us to secure transportation back to the airport - and offered helpful tips to ensure we didn't overpay. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Rome and this beautiful apartment. I'm hopeful we will be able to return for a future visit. All the best to Francesca and Leo. We are so appreciative of your advice and assistance. Ciao!

Amazing 2 bedroom apartment in the heart of Rome !

  • 5 of 5

Great location in central Rome. Walking distance to Vatican City. Walking distance to the hop on hop off bus that takes you around to all the major tourist sites. Lots of good restaurants and bakeries within a few blocks of the apartment. late night convenience store around the corner. The apartment is in a beautiful historic elevator building. There is a half a flight of stairs up to the elevator from the lobby so be prepared to carry your luggage up the steps to the elevator. This wonderful two bedroom apartment has a nice little balcony in the back and is furnished with lovely antiques. The beds are rather firm for my taste (I prefer a soft bed). Apartment is clean and well kept. there is a washing machine but no dryer, you can hang your clothes to dry on a clothes line on the balcony. We loved having two bathrooms. The shower doesn't work great, there's a hook for the shower head but it doesn't hold the shower head up well at all - this really needs to be fixed so that you don't have to hold the shower wand when bathing. kitchen is small but functional. Francesca the owner really cares about her guests experience, there was a lovely assortment of tea and breads in the dining room upon arrival and Francesca meets you at the apartment upon arrival to make sure you know how to operate the stove/oven and washing machine. There are also nice little baskets filled with soaps and shampoos in the bathrooms. There are shutters on the windows that you can close to block out the sun so the bedrooms are dark in the morning for those who like to sleep in. Plenty of storage in the bedrooms for your clothing and personal belongings. large bedrooms, spacious living room, large dining room. If you're looking to experience what it's like to live in Rome this place is the ticket, we loved it so much we didn't want to leave ! Thank you Francesca :)

Che dire? non avremmo potuto scegliere location più adatta per la nostra vacanza a Roma.

Meraviglia delle meraviglie.

Ci siamo mossi sempre a piedi, come descritto nell'annuncio è tutto vicinissimo alla casa, Noi avevamo prenotato la Visita ai Musei Vaticani ( basta girare l'angolo e sei davanti all'ingresso dei musei).

Siamo stati un incanto. Casa bellissima, grande fresca pulita in modo incredibile e accessoriata di tutto con servizi perfetti.

Francesca e Leo ci hanno consigliato su tutto, Visite, Mercatini Ottimi ristoranti, una vacanza impeccabile

Questa Casa è stata una scelta eccezionale e la consigliamo a tutti

Grazie ancora per averci fatto sentire così ben accolti e a presto.

I'll start with a big thank you to Francesca and Leo for how easy communications were before the stay and how accomodating they were to my requests! Thank you also for looking after my parents whilst there! I booked this trip for my parents and chose this apartment for its location and reviews- couldn't have made a better choice! My parents have nothing but good things to say about how welcoming, helpful and enthusiastic both Francesca and Leo were. They were made to feel at home straight away and given great recommendations on local restaurants. When they landed, they realised their phones weren't working- Francesca advised on where they could have them checked and messaged me straight away to let me know. Francesca even messaged durring their stay to ask if I had heard from them and wanted her to pop into the apartment to see how they were. Apart from how great the hosts are the flat was exactly what it shows on here. My parents thought it was a lovely flat, very clean, well equipped (they were gutted they didn't get around to drinking the bottle of Champagne!), well located so close to the station and St Peter' s square. I think my parents feel they've made new friends in Rome with Francesca and Leo and have told me that I need to stay myself. Based on how helpful before, durring and the rave reviews my parents gave both on the hosts and the flat- this one is definately one I have to recommend and one I hope myself and Christabel experience one day. Thank you again Francesca and Leo! Bruna

Una casa perfetta per sentirsi a casa propria al centro di Roma. Posizione strategica, non occorre la macchina, servita in modo perfetto da metro sotto casa, autobus sotto casa. Ampia scelta di negozi, ristoranti, locali tipici tutto sotto casa.

Siamo stati benissimo. La casa è bella, accogliente silenziosa . Accoglienza ottima
