Casa Romantica is a fantastic apartment located close to many of the main attractions in Rome.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 stayed at Casa Romantica in June, 2017. Antonio was a great host; he was on-time for both our arrival and departure. He provided helpful tips about sights and great restaurants in the neighbourhood. The apartment is very spacious, nicely decorated and well appointed. We would certainly stay there again.

Très bel appartement, spacieux, chaleureusement décoré avec goût, très bien équipé, propre et calme

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé quatre nuits dans l'appartement du 4 au 8 mai. Nous étions deux adultes et un enfant.

L'appartement est très agréable pour un séjour à Rome. Je reviendrai plus tard sur ses caractéristiques techniques mais avant tout c'est un appartement chaleureux, aux couleurs douces dans lequel on se sent bien et que l'on regrette presque de quitter le matin pour partir à l'assaut de la ville antique si riche en histoire.

L'appartement est spacieux avec ses deux grandes chambres, une belle hauteur de plafond et une décoration sobre, élégante et raffinée.

L'appartement correspondait exactement à la description. Il était très propre et parfaitement bien équipé même pour de plus long séjours que le nôtre (lave-vaisselle, lave-linge, sèche-cheveux...).

Lors de la réservation je craignais que la situation de l'appartement ne soit pas idéale mais le quartier sans être très touristique est très vivant et permet de se fondre dans la vie quotidienne des romains. Le quartier est sûr. L'appartement est proche des principaux sites antiques qui sont accessibles à pieds (Colisée, Palatin, forum, thermes de Caracalla) et l'appartement est à deux pas de la station de métro Vittorio Emmanuelle de la ligne A qui donne accès à toute la ville très facilement.

Et si on ajoute à tout cela la gentillesse et les bons conseils d'Antonio (notamment un grand plan annoté et un petit guide avec toutes les bonnes adresses du quartier, des petits conseils pratiques joliment encadrés disséminés dans l'appartement...) vous comprendrez que nous avons passé un très agréable séjour et simplement regretté qu'il ne soit pas plus long...

Lovely apartment but not a lovely neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

Antonio was a wonderful host who spoke excellent English. He answered all my questions via email, was there when we arrived and explained everything about the property and area. He also was available via telephone if needed.

The apartment was beautifully decorated, very large and looked exactly as the photos. It had all the amenities you could ask for except a clothes dryer. The beds were typical European - very hard! All of the windows opened and provided plenty of sunlight. The washing machine was great (plenty of detergent in the xloset). We hung our heavy clothing over the radiators and they were dry by morning. Everything you needed to cook was in the kitchen - pots, pans and utensils. Antonio had milk, juice, eggs and fruit there when we arrived - very nice of him. There was also coffee, tea, sugar and other condiments that other people had left.

The apartment is really only 3-5 minutes (walking) from the Metro station which made it extremely convenient. It is one stop from Termini Station and 2-3 stops from all the tourist sights like the Spanish Steps, the Coliseum, Trevi Fountain etc. There is also a nice supermarket - Conad - about 2 blocks away.

We did have a problem though, there was renovaton going on in the apartment above when we were there - May 1, 2016 - and going on the entire time we were there. I believe Antonio should have contacted us and given us the opportunity to cancel because of the horrendous noise (heavy machinery and hammering all day from 8 a.m. to 5-6 p.m. in the evening). It was obvious the construction had been going on for awhile. Because of all the heavy banging etc., the hot water heater was damaged and we lost the hot water every day. To his credit, Antonio did have the plumber there everyday to fix it but it was still very inconvenient.

FYI- this apartment is not in a lovely neighborhood. We felt safe but the streets were very dirty and there were homeless people sitting outside the door. It could be due to the close proximity to Termini station. It's too bad it isn't in another neighborhood. However, convenience (Metro stop, market and the great apartment) was more important to us so it worked out just great. We would certainly return there and recommend it to our friends as we just loved the apartment and Antonio was great. Thanks Antonio, for a great stay!

The place to be!

  • 5 of 5

Voila une adresse à vivement recommander pour une visite mémorable de ROME!

Au cœur d'un quartier populaire, chaleureux et multiculturel, à l'écart de la cohue touristique, l'appartement décoré avec goût par Antonio et son épouse vous permettra de vous détendre et de vous reposer après vos longues journées de balade dans la ville éternelle! Il n'y a absolument aucune critique à émettre : une proximité avec tous les grands centres de visites, les axes et moyens de circulation (Termini, métro...), les restaurants (Trattoria da Danilo à ne rater sous aucun prétexte - cuisine 100% romaine et très abordable!!!!!!) traiteurs et et pâtisseries typiques; l'appartement (immense...) est d'un calme olympien (pas le moindre bruit), doté de toutes les commodités et équipements. Vous trouverez notamment , préparés avec soins, un recueil de toutes les suggestions typiques à découvrir.

Sans oublier surtout la gentillesse et la bienveillance de nos hôtes pour qui la rencontre et l'échange ne sont pas des vains mots.

Ce fut grâce à eux un séjour inoubliable.

A très bientôt et très belle année 2016 avec plein de belles rencontres!

Sophie et Bertrand
