Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband, 17 year old daughter and I stayed at Palazzo d'Avila for 8 days in February 2011. This was the first part of our 2 week visit to Italy. I had spent many hours researching a place to stay in Rome in advance of our trip. The description of this property, the location and the comments from other guests guided my choice. Fiora and I exchanged e-mails and all my questions were answered in advance of our trip. We made the right choice. This location was fantastic. The photos and description accurately represented the house. The house was very clean, very comfortable, very quiet and very secure. We had plenty of space and having the 2 bathrooms was very practical, especially with a 17 year old! Fiora and Nur arranged for the taxi to meet us at the airport and take us to the house - that was such a welcomed service after spending over 24 hours in air transit. The driver was very polite, kind and professional. This service is well worth the extra cost. In Fiora's absence Nur answered our questions on site and we thank her for her kindness and helpfulness. Everything we needed was located in the house and we very much appreciated the washer and dryer for laundry. We also very much appreciated having access to WiFi as it allowed us to easily stay in touch with our family and work back home in the comfort of our accommodations. The location of this house was terrific - everything was within walking distance and there were many restaurants handy to the house. We had a terrific meal at Ristorante Clemente at Piazza della Maddalena which is close to the house. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who appreciates fine food. We loved Piazza Navona and the proximity of the house to the piazza. I would highly recommend this house. Staying at this house was a big part of what made our trip to Italy a trip of a life time. Should I have the good fortune of returning to Rome I will once again stay at this Palazzo d'Avila!!

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 spent 5 days in Rome. We wanted to be close to Piazza Novona for close proximity to St Peter's, Trevi Fountain and Pantheon. This apartment was very comfortable and in the perfect location and street. Via del Governo Vecchio was the perfect street. Everything we needed was on this quaint, happy and safe street ( small market, lots of good restaurants, cafes, gelato). We loved walking on this street. It was nice coming home from a long day of walking , freshening up and then having dinner in one of the outdoor restaurants or gelato just a few steps away from the apartment. We also dined in the apartment a few times. There is also a liquor store on the street to buy Italian wine to accompany dinner.

Fiora was very helpful during the planning process. Fiora you have a beautiful apartment. Thank you to you and Allen for all your assistance and quick responses to my questions.

I would highly recommend this apartment. We would stay here again if we return to Rome.

Very pleasant experience!

  • 5 of 5

Very pleasant overall experience. Fiori was professional, prompt, helpful and everything we could have asked for. The location is perfect: walking distance from every major attraction in the city, as well as too many restaurants, shops and drinking establishments to count. Excellent way to tackle one of Europe’s finest destinations!

When in Rome... Be like the Romans!

  • 5 of 5

You cannot beat this location!. Ideal for couples or families who want to enjoy and explore Rome. Everything close by (including a Supermarket to get all you need during your stay). Fiora arranged a car back and forth from the Airport and her housekeeper greeted us at the property to show us how everything worked. Highly recomended!

Fantastic visit to Rome!

  • 5 of 5

Only great things to say about this apartment! Our family of four had a wonderful stay in Rome. The apartment is very spacious and comfortable. The location is fantastic for visiting the Vatican, Navonna, and the Spanish Steps - or just wandering the cobblestone streets.

Fiora is a very gracious host... booking a car from the airport for us, and even welcoming us to the apartment on Easter evening! We would definitely book again on a future visit to Rome.

Perfect location, comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

We felt right at home in this comfortable apartment. Everything had been so thoughtfully arranged that we settled right in. Owner provided so much information about the surroundings, day trips, restaurants, and the like, that we didn't have to do much research. We cooked dinner a couple of nights, which worked out great, and did laundry. It was quiet, but so close to the Metro, the Tuileries, Louvre, and shopping. The neighborhood is upscale and felt very safe. The kids were happy in their own room. Plenty of room for us all to relax together or apart. Would stay again.

THE APARTMENT: This is the most amazing apartment we have had the privilege of staying in while enjoying Rome. (We have stayed in many in multiple cities, countries). It is lovely, charming. One feels right at home with the gorgeous personal furnishings, endless seating. The place is spotless as well as all the linens. It is comfortable, furnished with a high quality washer and dryer. The kitchen has whatever one needs for for food preparation. The location is superior, close to restaurants, large piazzas and right in the heart of things. Quiet inside the apartment - incredibly quiet as a matter of fact. Very good security - we always felt safe. Plumbing is in excellent shape with great water pressure.

FIORA, OUR HOST: I cannot say enough wonderful things about Fiora. She is truly one of the loveliest people I have met. Very organized, efficient, answers every single e-mail, kept us informed and updated. Had great recommendations. A review takes on a very different dimension when there is a problem during a stay in any apartment —I developed a very urgent medical problem that required an immediate visit to a retinal specialist. I contacted Fiora who immediately did some research and called me back within minutes to offer information about a private Ophthalmologist in Rome. She followed up later to check on my progress. Fortunately my outcome was positive. Her kindness was palpable. Developing a significant medical problem in a foreign country can be challenging to say the least and I will always be grateful to Fiora for such a quick response. It was a privilege to meet her - this was our 2nd time staying in this beautiful house and we hope to continue our relationship. She is a blessing!
