“Perfect apartment in perfect location”
Reviewed 12 June 2012 for a stay in May 2012

Loved the apartment, it is in a great location, close to transportation, walking distance to Colosseum, across the street from grocery store and gelateria. And don't miss Panella, which is also close by.

Dear Robert and Caroline,

Hello. Many thanks for the great review from you. It was really nice to meet you, and talk with somebody from my city again. We hope that your trip was a good one and that you have many things about Rome to tell people about back home. Thank you for sending me the link to your photos, they were fabulous. Thank you for staying at the Minerva,

Best regards,

“A fantastic apartment in the heart of Rome”
Reviewed 11 June 2012 for a stay in March 2012

My and wife and I recently had the pleasure of staying at the Minerva apartment in mid March 2012 for a week. We had found it on Trip Advisor and it certainly lived up to all the positive reviews. As others had said previously it was very easy to book on line and Mary Therese is probably one of the most detail oriented people we have ever dealt with, so we were well informed before we even arrived which was very nice. The apartment itself is in a decent area of Rome and we felt very safe both in the apartment and walking the area. On arrival Mary Therese and her husband Wolfango (who renovated the entire apartment and did a great job) spent a good hour going over all the working details of the apartment, restaurant and sight seeing tips, how to utilize the various modes of transportation. We went to RomAntica restaurant nearby which was excellent.

They really have everything you need there from linens, towels, and a full kitchen. We were able to prepare a couple of dinners and had everything we needed. The place was immaculate! They even have a washing machine so we were able to do some laundry before we headed up to Tuscany.

Fortunately there is a decent supermarket diagonally across the street and across from there a good coffee shop. As other's have mentioned, a great gelato shop less than a block away in the other direction.

We were able to walk to the all the Ancient Rome sites, but if you preferred you could use public transportation. You definitely don't want a car while you are in Rome.

All in all it was great week and staying here really made us feel like we were living in Rome and part of the community rather staying at a hotel and just visiting. We will definitely be back in the future.

Dear Brian and family,
Hello. Thank you very much for the great review. Unfortunately it wound up on a different page on Tripadvisor and we just found them this week, and had to contact them to bring the reviews to our page, which is why we didn't know you'd left a review until now. We hope that you have many good memories of Rome and will be back again, as one trip to Rome is never enough.

Best regards,

Mary Therese & Wolfango

“Immaculate, roomy, comfy home base for Rome vacationers”
Reviewed 29 May 2012 for a stay in May 2012

Owners were attentive and gracious, communicating with us beforehand and meeting us upon our arrival. Provided us with information about the apartment, nearby restaurants and the transportation system. Their well-maintained, spotless apartment had all the essential amenities plus a washing machine and a wonderful tub. Beds were very comfortable -- while we only needed 2, the apartment sleeps 5. Kitchen stocked. Located across the street from a grocery store on a block where several buses and trolleys stop; 10 min. walk to metro. Light sleepers advised to bring earplugs -- apartment walls thin -- a small detraction for the excellent overall value. Wifi works for email and g-video/skype. If I were to come back to Rome, I'd definitely stay here again.
