Enjoyable stay in Rome

  • 5 of 5

Luisa is a wonderful hostess. She checked in with us everyday. The property was clean and welcoming and easily accommodated 7 adults.The restaurants she recommended were within walking distance and wonderful. Easy access to the bus and metro and all the sites of Rome. Wonderful gelatto just around the corner.

We would definitely consider staying at this apt. again

We spent evenings on the terrace enjoying the lovely weather and the view of San Giovanni Basilica. We enjoyed probably would not have visited this beautiful basilica and the praying steps if we had not stayed at this property.

Large Apartment, Great View, Near Coliseum

  • 4 of 5

Three couples stayed here for 3 nights. The bedrooms were nice, large and comfortable. The kitchen was very nice and usable. The living room was small but useable. However, we mostly stayed on the Terrace, which was awesome with a great view and a pull down canopy to shade us. We had appetizers and drank a lot of wine on the terrace. There is just about everything within walking distance restaurants, wine stores, cafes, grocery shops, coffee shops and Metro stations. Other than a slightly long walk to the Forum and Coliseum, to get around Rome, the Metro is needed. The washer was not working which was a big disappointment because we were going next on a 11 day cruise. Luisa was great and offered to helped with everything including our cab back to the train station. The only other drawback was the small showers with no holders for soap, etc. We would definitely stay here again. Thanks Luisa.

Great location, Fabulous Owner, Awesome

  • 5 of 5

There are probably plenty of great places to stay in Rome however, whenever traveling anywhere where you are unfamiliar- and when traveling with 4 kids, it really helps having someone do the extra things to make things go smoothly. Luisa made our visit perfect. Assisting with getting transportation to the airport, location of nearest grocery store, train locations, tourist visits, etc. The apartment was clean, centrally located, safe, had air conditioning, great patio to relax and talk about the day's activities, stocked kitchen, etc. Thank you Luisa for making our trip wonderful. IF we ever travel to Rome again, we would definitely want to stay at your apartment.

Great Location - Great View

  • 5 of 5

Conveniently close to the metro A line and a major bus stop (in front of the Basilica), and in a vastly underrated neighborhood of Rome. The home is spacious, clean, and well provisioned. The evenings out on the balcony with the moon rising over St John's were tremendous. The owners are reliable, flexible, and friendly. We had a great vacation due in large part to choosing the right home base.

Wonderful apartment & so close to public transport & the main attractions of Rome. There were seven of us for most of our stay & as others have said it was clean & the bedrooms roomy with ceiling fans in three & aircon in the fourth. We used the kitchen to cook a few evening meals but there are several restaurants close by. The only complaint was that the washing machine wasn't working but Luisa did offer to take any washing away to do. Luisa! You are wonderful. Right from when we booked over a year ago you have replied to my emails promptly. You organised airport transfers for three different parties at different times & meet them on arrival. Your apartment is in the perfect position & if I was returning in a group I would definitely book again. Thank you, you made it all so easy.

Rome is in the Lazio region of central Italy on the Tiber river. The original settlement developed on hills that faced onto a ford beside the Tiber island, the only natural ford of the river in this area. The Rome of the Kings was built on seven hills: the Aventine Hill, the Caelian Hill, the Capitoline Hill, the Esquiline Hill, the Palatine Hill, the Quirinal Hill, and the Viminal Hill. Modern Rome is also crossed by another river the Aniene which joins the Tiber north of the historic centre.

Although the city center is about 24 kilometres (15 mi) inland from the Tyrrhenian Sea, the city territory extends to the shore, where the south-western district of Ostia is located. The altitude of the central part of Rome ranges from 13 metres (43 ft) above sea level (at the base of the Pantheon) to 139 metres (456 ft) above sea level (the peak of Monte Mario).[34] The Commune of Rome covers an overall area of about 1,285 square kilometres (496 sq mi), including many green areas.
