“Comfort, charm, and great hospitality in the heart of Rome”
Reviewed 13 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016
1
person found this review helpful

This delightful apartment is the perfect base for exploring Rome. Owner Jean Louis excels at unobtrusive hospitality, both in the welcome which he, and his assistant Odette provide, and the thoughtfulness with which he's equipped and decorated the apartment. There's everything we needed to relax and refresh after a hard day's tourist activity, and this is certainly somewhere we'd come back to again.
The apartment's location makes arrival easy - it's just a 5 minute walk from Termini rail station (where the 'Leonardo Express' train from Fiumicino airport terminates). It's an even shorter walk from Cavour metro. In any case most of Rome's major sights are a walkable distance, with the Colosseum very close by.
Jean Louis provided us with a great breakfast each morning which set us up for the day, and a treat of some delicious pannetone type seasonal cake! He got the balance between giving advice and leaving us to our own devices just right, and gave some helpful tips on things we wouldn't have know, for example unusual things to see, and how best to get around. Jean Louis is also admirably unflappable in a crisis, and calmly sorted out a problem we'd brought upon ourselves by accidentally changing the code to the small safe which is provided, and separating ourselves from our passports!
The apartment has some delightful decor, with art from many parts of the world, and a patio/atrium with an indoor and outdoor section, where we had breakfast. The apartment was warm and cozy, with excellent central heating which was welcome as the December days were sunny but cold. There are also aircon units in the rooms, which I imagine are just as important for summer!
A lovely apartment and host - I hope we'll have the chance to return

“Splendid appartment”
Reviewed 13 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

person found this review helpful

The reviews for this delightful place were so good and we were not disappointed. Walking from the train terminal quite late at night was easy and the welcome from Jean Louis was friendly and kind with wine and nibbles to help us relax on arrival. It is on a quite road and it was extremely quiet. We enjoyed the CD player, breakfasts and the large supermarket very close by. Highlights of the trip were 'free bike tours' booked online beforehand - great for all ages and kept our 14 year old amused for 4 hours. Rome was warm and it was a lovely half term get away for us all. Would recommend to all

Convinced that if our guests want to discover the beautiful Rome by themselves, they have to be relax and confortable at home. This is our commitment. Thanks again for choosing Casa Virgilio in Monti. Laura and JeanLouis

“5 wonderful nights in Rome”
Reviewed 10 November 2016 for a stay in May 2016
3
people found this review helpful

Would have wanted to write this review much earlier, but for reasons out of my control couldn't. We were 2 couples that stayed 5 nights in May. Starting with the communications w/Jean Louis to book the apartment couldn't have been better. He answered all my questions in no time and there were no problems with the booking process. The apartment was perfect, comfortable, each couple in their own space, but at the same time sharing the big eating area and the patio. Jean Louis greeted us when we arrived and was always there to give us excellent recommendations on where to go, where to eat and so many other tips. Always making sure everything was ok or asking if we needed anything. Also, the breakfast was a real treat ....thank you!! Location is in a quiet street, safe and near everything.
Absolutely would recommend this apartment. If we're ever lucky to go to Rome again, we would stay at Casa Virgilio again!
Thank you Jean Louis and Laura, you were truly great hosts!
(sorry for the late review)

“Home Away From Home”
Reviewed 3 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

people found this review helpful

Our little "home away from home" was a SPLENDID way to end our Italian "connection". If you're toying between hotel vs. vacation rentals, Jean Louis and Laura's numerous and varied creature comforts will convince you THIS is the choice to make for your Roman holiday! Jean Louis is always there to charmingly assist in any query you may have about the city all the while treating you in first-class comfort with delectable breakfast offerings, with the occasional accent on warm breads & occasional suprise "dolces" from Laura's kitchen, topped off with cappucinos you can provide for yourself INSTANTLY. Comfy beds & linens, impeccible bathrooms, a bowl of fresh fruits, stereo music at your fingertips, all nestled in an ecclectic setting. What MORE could you ASK for?? Grazie mille e Arrivederci Jean Louis!! We'll be back!!

Dear guests
thank you so much for your kind and warm words. Laura and I are living in the wonderful city of Rome and our commitment is to offer our guests a comfortable lodge "like at home" from where they can discover quietly the best of the city, sometime suggesting things hard to find out for themselves. Almost a stay "à la carte" according to the tastes of each.
Thanks again, and ... why not, come again . Your roman "home away from home" is waiting for you. You are always welcome.
Laura and JeanLouis

“highly recommended”

We visited as 2 couples, active retired. The location was good, easy walk to Colosseum, Excellent accomodation and breakfast, everything was clean , comfortable and visually appealing. Every aspect of our stay was very good.
However, the best thing was the personal touch from Jean Louis and Laura. They were willing to help in any way.
My suitcase had not arrived at FCO airport and after staying at Casa Virgilio we were departing for a cruise so I was very anxious to get my suitcase back!
Jean Louis took my lost luggage report and spent a day of his own time at his own expense following up the loss.
I am convinced that without his intervention I would probably not have received the luggage before the cruise.
