Amazing location in Rome!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Claudia's apartment for four nights in July. Booking was very easy. Claudia responded quickly to all my emails, deposit was by Paypal and the balance in cash in person. Claudia met us when we arrived and showed us around the apartment.

The apartment is up six (?) flights of stairs but there is an elevator (one of the cage type, small elevators). We took the stairs each time!

There is a small grocery store next door the apartment building and a few doors down a convenience store. Great for getting food for breakfast, picnic lunch, easy dinners. There is a larger grocery store about a 10 minute walk away.

The location is amazing. Steps from the metro and just 10 minutes by metro from Roma Termini main train station. It's only a 10 minute walk from the Colosseum, plus there are buses and trains right outside too.

The apartment has a spacious living area, two bedrooms (one with twin beds, one queen/king), two bathrooms. We all showered in the en suite bathroom as the other bathroom has as a tub and shower hose, and we prefer upright showers! There is an air conditioning unit in the master bedroom and living area. It was 95 degrees in Rome when we were there, but the apartment was a comfortable temperature inside.

The apartment also felt very safe and secure.

We would recommend this apartment to our friends visiting Rome, and if we go back to Rome, we'd like to stay here again :)

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

We had quite an extensive checklist of what we were looking for and Claudia's apartment fit the bill perfectly. We were a family of 5 - 2 children aged 19 and 7 , my wife and mother-in-law. We spent 5 nights at her place and thoroughly enjoyed it. We had planned a few day trips to Venice, Naples and Florence and having the metro so close and the Termini station within walking distance or 2 metro stops away was a blessing. As for the apartment itself, it's got a old world charm with a few modern comforts thrown in including well appointed bathrooms.

Last but not the least, Claudia was the perfect host and even waited for us past midnight and patiently walked us through the amenities, attractions close by, how to get around. She also has a binder with carefully compiled information which turned out to be very helpful.

I would highly recommend Claudia's apartment to anyone looking for a reasonably priced place and a very convenient location and all the must haves.

Perfect for your Rome getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Claudia's unit for our vacation with our adult daughter and the unit was perfect for us. The unit was clean and well maintained and Claudia was a great host. The unit is centrally located but very quiet. The Metro is nearby as are coffee shops, dining and shops. The unit has A/C which was great since the daytime temps were in the mid 90s during our stay

Outstanding accomodation!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 2 children and mother spend 4 nights at Claudia's beautiful Roman apartment. The apartment was clean, tastefully decorated, comfortable and in an amazing location. From the early planning stages of our trip, Claudia was a pleasure to deal with. Quick to respond and very helpful. She met us at the apartment and gave us all the information we needed for a great stay. The small grocery store just downstairs had all the things we needed. The metro, just a short walk around the corner was very convenient. On our first day we walked over 10 miles, all over Rome and saw most of the major sights. If you are up to it, from the apartment you can walk just about anywhere but the subway is there if you need it. Claudia's restaurant recommendations were fabulous! We especially enjoyed Ristorante Galilei just a 5 minute walk away. We even went back a second night! I myself, am a VRBO owner and I have very high expectations when I book on VRBO and deal with other potential owners. In my opinion, a 5 star is not enough for Claudia or her wonderful apartment. I highly recommend this will not be disappointed! Thanks again Claudia for making our short stay in Rome a memorable one:) Best, Cindy
