This flat is right opposite the Vatican Walls close to bus stops, the metro and the river. the flat is spacious, with a good sized kitchen and extremely well stocked. We will definitely be back. Maria Luisa looked after us splendidly, she was waiting for us when we arrived (she had arranged for us to be picked up at the airport and deposited right outside the front door). She took plenty of time to show us the flat and where everything could be found. I cannot praise her highly enough - a delightful person.
The flat was in a very central location, with shops and restaurants around. Flat was easily accessible, very clean, very comfortable, and well equipped. Although in a busy location, there was no noise problem. Maria Luisa was extremely helpful, charming, welcoming and very well organised. Highly recommend this accommodation, we would not hesitate to use it again on a future visit to Rome.
I stayed here for 6 nights with my daughter which proved to be a great choice for our first visit to Rome. The one bedroom flat was spacious, warm, clean and provided everything we needed. It gave us more freedom than a hotel room and far better value!
The owner, Maria Luisa arranged the taxi to and from the airport for us which made it so stress free. When we arrived she warmly greeted us outside the flat and then spent time explaining everything we would need to know about our stay. She provided maps, gave us local hints and tips on where to shop, eat, things to see and so much more.
Maria Luisa kindly made up the pull out bed in the dining room for my daughter, so it felt as though we had two bedrooms.(We ate our meals in the kitchen anyway) The kitchen is fully equipped and the market (Mercato Trionfale) that is approx 10minute walk away is a delight and we cooked several lovely meals of an evening after a long day of sight seeing. The fruit, veg and bread is so fresh and the stall holders were absolutely charming. Shopping there was an added bonus to our holiday!
The flat is opposite the Vatican so we pre booked tickets for 9am which was ideal as uwe were in before the crowds. 'A must' if you want to take lots of photos without hundreds of other visitors in your pictures. The Metro is a 10minute walk away but we only used this a couple of times as we walked to all the main tourist attractions. Plus when you are walking there are so many wonderful churches to visit on your way and you get to find some lovely back street restaurants.
We took the train one day to Florence which was an hour and a half journey. The trains are brilliant but be warned.... Always carry your passport! We were told off by Police that came aboard for not carrying ID.
It was the first time for us to rent an appartment and we had the right start. The owner is perfectly organized, very helpful with everything (arrival time, departure time, proposals as to what to discover, restaurants...aso).
The appartment is in perfect shape, spaceful, typical italian just opposite the Vatican. From here everything can be discovered by foot.
We would definitely go there again
My husband, teenage daughter and I have just returned from 5 nights at Maria Luisa`s apartment. I must say that from the start when I was making enquiries from home, she was really efficient at corresponding and answering queries.
Maria Luisa booked the taxi from the airport for us which worked really well as the taxi driver was there to meet us and took us right to the apartment. It was lovely that Maria Luisa was there to meet us from the taxi and was so friendly and welcoming.....a really lovey touch when one arrives in a strange city! She then showed us around the apartment and even made us a cup of coffee!
The apartment was perfect for the three of us. My husband and I had the double room ( in the picture) and our daughter had her own room next door. The kitchen was well appointed for doing own cooking if you chose to. The supermarket was close by for supplies.
For a city location,the apartment itself is really peaceful and quiet. We all slept really well with no disturbance from city goings on.
Finally and very importantly!....the apartment was really clean and well kept.
