“Lovely, large apartment good base for seeing Rome”

We stayed 5 nights in the Minerva Apartment over Thanksgiving Week. The apartment is located a bit off the track but is just a 15 minute walk to the Colosseum and a shorter work to 2 Metro stations where you will find trains to take you to the main Rome sites. The oldest continuously running gelateria is right across the street, as is a full service food market and several good restaurants,

The apartment is well-appointed, with everything you would need for a stay in Rome , and more, including hundreds of books on Rome and others to read for pleasure. There is a fully stocked kitchen, a lovely bathroom and small washing machine, and 3 separate living areas.

My only recommendation is for the hosts to buy a dehumidifier for the bathroom. At least when we were there, the bathroom stayed musty the entire time -- the towels never seemed to dry between showers. Likely less of an issue in summer, but a problem in the fall/winter when opening the windows brings the smell of cigarette smoke from the street, along with moist air.

Overall, a lovely visit.

Hello, thank you for the review and for letting us know your thoughts. We didn't realize what you had mentioned, we will try improve it,as nobody had ever mentioned the question before. By the way, the other set of keys did not show up in the apartment during cleaning and we had to change the special German security door locks and keys, for 600 euros, unfortunately.

Mary Therese and Wolfango

Absolutely loved this apartment! Everything you could possibly need plus more is there for you. Mary and Wolfgang are your hosts and were extremely helpful from calling taxis to making sure our car showed up at 4am to bring us to airport. Helpful information in apartment and they go over everything in apartment and area with you. Trams and bus right outside your door and metro right down block. I loved the public transportation but others might not. Gets kind of crowded. Front or back less crowded. Grocery store right across street. Came in very handy! Cafe on corner great for morning breakfast. Restraunts all close by. Jacuzzi tub was wonderful after long days of walking. Washing machine was bonus. Loved this place! Would definitely recommed to everyone!

We work very hard to make sure that our guests have the very best stay possible in Rome, and go to great lengths to help our guests in any way.

“Great place”
Reviewed 15 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

The Minerva Apartment was the ideal place for a short stay in Rome: very clean, close to the center and the main attractions and very well furnished. Mary Therese and her husband were very helpful in providing great advice about the city, you couldn't meet nicer lodgers!
I would definitely recommend this place to my friends.

Mary Theresa is an amazing concierge. I developed food poisioning during my stay and M.T was very informative on where to go to get help and even came with me. I can't thank her enough for helping me during that rough 24 hours. The apartment has everything you would need for your Rome adventues and in the right neighborhood to get around Rome easily. M.T. Suggested excellent and affordable restaurants and the apartment is close to a grocery store, pharmacy ect... Its kinda like being at home in Rome. Audry

Very near Rome Termini and within a fifteen minute walk to the Colosseum, the Minerva is very well placed, wonderfully equipped and extremely comfortable. We were a three: my son and his girlfriend shared the double bedroom and I had one of the singles. We slept well, woke refreshed (the air con is first class) and headed out to some of the best sights in Rome within walking distance every day. Don't miss the less obvious local things, like the San Clemente church, which is an education in its own right. Cooked in one night in the well stocked kitchens after shopping at the supermarket across the street, and had ice-cream at Fassi's - a Rome institution. Mary is a very thorough owner and checks you have everything you need. She is also always available to call. We'd be back like a shot. Thanks for a magical stay.

Hello,

Many thanks for the kind review. We are glad to hear that your stay was a really good one.And also that you enjoyed the Fassi ice cream parlour, Rome's oldest parlour , 50 m down the street and that you got to enjoy the bread and pastry delights at Panella, nearby, besides all the wonderful sights you told us about having seen. I've been here 30 years and still haven't seen all there is to see! We hope that you have many good memories to share back home and that you'll be back to Rome to see more this ancient and complex city has to offer. Thank you for staying at the Minerva Apartment,

Best regards,
