Exactly as described

  • 5 of 5

We loved our recent stay at this apartment. It is exactly as described, and we agree with all of the reviews already posted. The location is perfect for exploring ancient Rome on foot, and we walked daily and visited all of the famous spots, as well as exploring some lesser known spots. Rome is always very busy so it is fun to find some places to explore that are not so hectic. We enjoyed some walking tours with Walks of Italy. The apartment is surrounded by wonderful restaurants, the daily markets of Campo de Fiori, and we ate out magnificently every day. If you get to the Jewish Ghetto area you have to try the deep fried artichoke! If you need a taxi, just walk to the closest taxi stand, but really everything is within walking distance. The apartment is located on a street off the Piazza Farnese, which houses the French Embassy, and used to be the home of the Pope before the Vatican was built. For the apartment itself, it is comfortable and well set up for a couple. While the kitchen is tiny, no one needs to cook when given the options available outside the door. We quickly became familiar with the area and found favorite spots to walk, eat and enjoy life outside. The bed is comfortable. You are surrounded by antiques and artwork to enjoy. The shower always has hot water. There are about 15 steps up a curved stairway to reach the apartment, but are manageable. Michela responded quickly to all of our requests and was very helpful. She arranged transportation to the airport with an efficient taxi driver on our departure from Rome.

Apartment was okay - but

  • 2 of 5

We were counting on having a washing machine available and did not learn it was broken until we sat down with Michela at the apartment. She says - oh I thought I told you the washer was broken - when she had clearly neglected to do so. The kitchen was very very small - and would have been impossible to cook anything other than coffee in. We were told there was an iron there to allow us to iron our clothes - but it was nowhere to be found. We would not stay in this apartment again.

A wonderful flat!

  • 5 of 5

I had the most marvelous time staying at Michela's lovely flat in the Campo Fiori area. Everything was perfect and exactly as described online. I was able to stay in Rome for 9 days and after this experience would never want to stay in another neighborhood--the location is just perfect for exploring any neighborhood of Rome while also have some fantastic bakeries, restaurants, wine bars, and gelaterias just around the corner. Michela was so kind and helpful from beginning to end, and I cannot wait for my next trip to Italy!

Perfect home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in Michela's apartment for my 30th birthday trip to Rome from 10/2--10/09/17. It was absolutely perfect and was just as pictured from her photos. It was clean and was equipped with the basic essentials we needed to cook. Though the kitchen and bathroom were on the smaller side, it was manageable and we didn't encounter any issues. We were able to purchase groceries and stock the fridge and cook and microwave as needed.

Michela was a gracious and perfect host! She arranged limo service for us to be picked up and dropped off at the airport. She was available via Whatsapp to chat in case we had any questions about the apartment or needed help finding local eateries and attractions.

The apartment is located in center of Campo di Fiori, and is walkable to many of the major attractions. Please be advised, it is not a short walk, maybe around 15-20 minutes. So if you do not enjoy walking, it is advised to catch a taxi which are only a few steps from the apartment. Everything you need is literally around the corner!

It really and truly was a great experience and I will definitely stay here again should I venture back to Rome in the future! Thank you Michela for making our trip that much more special :-)

The best location in rome

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is lovely. Full of antiques and very Roman in feel. It is small but well-equipped. Thank you for the scissors, duct tape, and great plugs. The wi-fi was excellent. Michaela was very responsive and easy to contact. She stayed in touch to answer questions. This is absolutely the best location in Rome. We could walk everywhere and we are 70.
