The apartment is perfect. It is in the center of the historic center, but completely quiet. Francesco has seen to every detail, from the perfect plugs, to fast internet, to thoughtful books and recommendations, to the perfect espresso. We have now stayed in this lovely place three times (twice in May and once last year), and we'll be back in June. Every time has been as lovely as the others. We are grateful that we have a second home in this amazing city.
I will have to plan visits to Rome around the availability of this apartment. The bedroom is so quiet that you can sleep with the doors open to the terrace yet you are just steps away from the Campi de Fiori. The washer/dryer combo works perfectly as does everything in this gorgeous flat. What a find! Fantastic neighborhood.
We spent 5 days in Rome and this apartment was a perfect choice. The reviews are spot on. Awesome apartment. Quiet Street (compared to most streets in Rome). Two grocery stores within a few minutes walk. Lots of shopping. Campo de Fiori square, one minute slow walk away, has great activity, food, shopping... Francesco was great! Took real good care of us. This locations is right in the middle of all major sites. 25 min walk east to Vatican City, 25 min walk west to Colosseum, 22 min walk north to Spanish steps and everything in between. We also used the buses to get around. Super easy and the bus stops are a three minute walk away. When we come back we will stay here again.
Apartment was totally as advertised: clean, attractive furnishings, comfortable bed & a well equipped kitchen in a secure building with an elevator. Francesco met me upon arrival for a thorough walk-thru and was immediately responsive to additional questions via e-mail.
One can easily walk---or catch buses---to all the major sights in the city. There are cafes, bakeries, restaurants and 2 grocery stores within a three minute walk from the front door. I have already booked a return stay!
We stayed in Francesco's Campo de' Fiori apartment for two weeks, and it was superb. We've stayed in nearly a dozen holiday rental apartments across the world, and this was one of the best. It is perfectly located, we loved the artsy, vibrant location so close to all the big Rome attractions, and the locals in the neighbourhood were hospitable and warmly friendly.
Francesco is a terrific host: he is kind and responsive, and he made sure our needs were well catered for. The apartment is stylish and considerately designed, and we were wonderfully comfortable.
We chose to use the limousine service from and to the airport, and were very pleased. It's a quite a hike from Australia to Rome, so it was so reassuring to arrive at the airport to find our driver waiting for us. Francesco's assistant Eldwin greeted us upon our arrival, and also serviced the apartment during our stay, and he too was a delight to deal with.
This was our first trip to Rome, and I sincerely hope it won't be our last. And I hope we will again be able to stay at Francesco's apartment at Campo de' Fiori.
