Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Alessandro,

we loved your apartment,and we wanted to thank you for the bottle of wine you left for us.We enjoyed it immensely watching the Colosseo light up at night.We found the neighbourhood to be a delight-close to Metro and bus,and good little restaurants and mercatos and prices lower than what we saw elsewhere.Again thank you for your hospitality.We found it unusual that there were not visitor comments on the VRBO web site.We will be sending a favourable review to them.Thanks again

Ciao,Geoff and Karen Bell

My favorite place in Rome.

  • 5 of 5

I almost hate to rave about Alessandro's place because I want to keep this little gem available for me! But he is such a nice man I want to give the review. It's a small but really nice apartment with a great little balcony that looks right at the Colosseo. The kitchen is small but fully stocked with all the stuff we needed to make some great meals. The shower is very good, and it's quite amazing to be showering while looking out the bathroom window at the Colosseo! Wifi was great. Elevator is cute and great. Neighborhood is wonderful. I have stayed there before alone and this time brought my wife, and she now loves it, too. It is small, but it doesn't feel small with the balcony. It's great, and so is Alessandro. Stay there and you will be happy. Just don't stay there when I want to come back!

Perfect location for seeing the sites in Rome

  • 4 of 5

As you can see by the photos this apartment is about a 10 minute walk to the coliseum. The view of the Coliseum greats you each morning and evening. There is a 24 hour healthy food store a 4 minute walk away. Plenty of good restaurants in the area. A very walk able neighborhood.

Our host Alessandro is a wonderful host and cares about his guests. He met us and gave a good overview of the neighborhood as well as the how to use the TV internet etc. He even provided a cell phone for local calls. Alessandro provided a couple of bottles of water and some milk in the refrigerator for us and arranged a private car to the airport for our departure.

The top drawer in the dresser is filled with maps and local guide books. The air conditioning was nice and the wifi was strong and robust with good speed. It's small studio and great for our 3 days in Rome.

Thank you Alessandro.

Wonderful!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay. Alessandro was very helpful. He had some freshly stocked supplies (bread, jams, tea, coffee, milk and water) in the apartment. He was very responsive to questions and even called to arrange a cab for us. We enjoyed a couple of his restaurant suggestions (Papagio and Il Bocconcino). We walked almost everywhere from the apartment. The apartment is small but any time we spent there we were either sleeping or sitting on the balcony enjoying the view!!! Highly recommend.

Absolutely Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Alessandro is absolutely wonderful along with the apartment! Incredible location over looking the Colosseum from the nice little terrace, wonderful neighborhood with tons of restaurants of all different calibers ranging from cheap pizza to expensive dinners, lovely wine bars, gelato and pastry shops, anything you could think of is within a 5-10 minute walk. The bus station and metro station is also less than 10 min away. Everywhere you walk in this neighborhood there is something to look at. Churches, ruins, parks, etc. The apartment was lovely as well. Small but clean and comfortable for 2 people. Biggest thing is that the building has a lift that fits 2-3 people. Very convenient at the end of the day when you are exhausted and your feet are hurting so you don't have to walk up 6 flights of stairs. We arrived after midnight on a train from Milan and Alessandro was there waiting for us and was very welcoming. He showed us around the apartment, how to use the TV, the AC, the amenities he left for us in the kitchen (water, milk, bread, butter and jam) and he even provides a small cell phone that you can use to make phone calls (calling restaurants, making reservations, calling Alessandro for something, etc) when out in the city. If you are from the US like us and get charged for making a phone call, it is very convenient. Overall the experience was incredible. We had a small issue with the shower - water goes everywhere all over the floor and it would go from hot to freezing cold back to hot every few minutes. Other than that, we seriously highly recommend this apartment due to the awesome location and amazing host! If we ever go back to Rome, we would definitely stay here again!

Roman holiday supreme

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful quiet apt surrounded by restaurants and 24 hour grocery near by. Picture is truly representative of view to colosseum. You cannot go wrong here. Owner is very attentive and helpful. Arranged for airport pickup for us which was a huge stress reliever after traveling so many hours to get to FCN airport from US.
