We had a wonderful stay at the Minerva Apartment. From the time of booking, Mary was so helpful in providing lots of useful information to help us get to the apartment and make the most of our stay. It is a very easy (10 minute or so) walk from Termini train station. Mary and Wolfango are charming and helpful hosts and it was lovely to have them greet us after a long train trip. The apartment is very centrally located to all the attractions of Rome and is an easy walk from the Colosseum. It is also very close to a host of restaurants, cafes and gelateria. The apartment itself is beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean, and stocked with so many useful items for a stay. The kitchen is of ample size to prepare your own meals and there is a supermarket across the road. The Minerva is a real 'home away from home', with plenty of room for a family, lots of wonderful books to read, travel guides and maps, and modern conveniences to make life easier. We would not hesitate to recommend the Minerva and thank our hosts so much for making our stay so pleasant.

Good Day,
We had returned from our wonderful vacation. Minerva apt is one of my unforgettable stayed on 13 to 16 Dec 2014. Wolfango is an excellent hosts and he gives us the info we need in staying in the apt. Mary has also provided wealth of tourist information with drawing/highlighting in colours on Rome city map which enable us to save some time on doing our own research. The apt is well equipped with loads of cooking utensils and ingredients you may need. The bathroom is also filled with toiletries which you may self-help. Location was great and opposite you can find the supermarket and oldest Italian gelato factory. And just next block, there is a Chinese Resturant that offers good price. Satisfied my craving for chinese food while I am in Rome. Not forgetting to mention, and thumb up to both Wolfango and Mary help us on booking a taxis and greeted us goodbye at 3.30am as we going to catch a flight to our next destination, Munich. We will Definately recommend friends and relatives to stay in Minerva , ROme. Can always email us if you coming to Singapore for holiday. We will sure introduce you the best place and food to enjoy. Many Thanks, Chrisjoel

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.

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!

“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.
