“Perfect family-friendly apartment”
Reviewed 28 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

I was attracted to this apartment by its name borrowing from the famous painter Kandinsky. The large two bed-roomed apartment is tastefully decorated with reprints of Kandinsky's works, among other items. It has air-conditioning, and wi-fi. There were plenty of bed linens, and the kitchen and bathroom were fully equipped.
Federico spoke flawless English, and was a perfect host. He arranged to have us picked up at the airport, had stocked up the breakfast basket with bread, toast, croissant and the fridge with butter, eggs, fruit juice, milk, mineral water. While leaving the place, I had forgotten a packet that needed to be stored in the refrigerator. Federico made sure that I could pick it up from a convenient location on our way back a week later.
The neighbourhood is friendly with bars, cafeterias, restaurants, and a pizzeria. We took Federico's tips about the fish specialty restaurant downstairs and the pizzeria down the road. We loved the lemon ricotta pasta from a fresh pasta shop he had suggested. The bus and tram stops are close to the apartment. One can easily reach the Vatican City with Bus 792 followed by 98 and one of the favourite locations Trastevere with many eateries and the basilica of Sta Maria by tram 8, and Termini Roma station by Bus H.
Thank you Federico for all your help!

Bhaswati, Victor and Pasha have been super guests ... It is always a pleasure to host highly educated people !!! Excellent communications to try and solve some unexpected problems related to forgotten items. House left in perfect shape, clean and in order. I hope that they will select my place again should they come back to Roma. It would be a pleasure.

“First trip to Rome!”
Reviewed 3 June 2017 for a stay in May 2017

Thank you Federico for making our first trip to Rome such a wonderful stay. Your apartment was perfect for us, and you were so very helpful. From our first enquiry about the apartment until you waved us goodbye nothing was too much trouble...from booking a taxi for us from the airport to filling the fridge with breakfast delights and coffee for our first morning. The apartment is exactly as described and is well appointed with all you need. There is a small balcony as well, which was big enough to enjoy a morning coffee on.

We walked from the apartment to the centre of Rome. It took about 50 minutes. We also used the bus and tram network, and the complimentary tickets Federico kindly gave us helped us use the tram for the first time.

There are a good number of restaurants and take away outlets, supermarkets​ and cafés around the apartment.

We booked the apartment having read such positive comments on trip advisor and can only add to them. We would rate the overall experience of enquiring, booking, and staying in Kandinsky House 12/10. It made our first (and not our last!) visit to Rome such a wonderful experience. Thank you very much Federico! Until our next visit...

There are times when you feel that you have met people who are not just guests... Louise and Paul (and their children with difficult Welsh names for me...) were a friendly family I was more than happy to host. By the way, my recollections of trips to Whales are of warm people and good food....
As usual, when you host a (real) family, they took care of the place as if it was their own.... Needless to say, the apartment was left spotless. I would sincerely have them again in Rome, perhaps for a longer stay....We could share some culinary (and drinking....) experience.
Many thanks for your review.... Under my white beard you could see some blushing !

“Perfected by a caring host”
Reviewed 27 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

The apartment projects comfort and a warm feeling of being well equipped for a very long stay. It all started from the good and timely communication with Federico (in perfect English) about the upcoming trip. The host with greet you and help settling down; in our case, it included even carrying our heaviest bag on the stairs.

Everything about the apartment and is not only explained precisely but also described in the printed and illustrated materials sitting on the dining table. There, you will also find the detailed descriptions of near-by eateries, stores, major attractions, etc. – all with maps and hours of operations. Public transportation is also covered at length (with maps). Federico gave us our first bus tickets as well.

The care included a great variety of food for the first morning after arrival.
Listen to the details about how the locks are working, how to turn on the burners on the gas stove, how to operate a cloth washer… But if you miss something and cannot find it in the instructional materials mentioned above, contact the host. He is responding promptly.

The apartment is in a safe neighborhood. Parking is easier to find around 7 .. 8 am and then around 5 .. 6 pm.

We’d be happy to stay at Kandinsky House again, both because of its feature and thanks to its caring host.

Apartment is spacious with all conveniences. Most impressive start up pack provided. Close to transport, bus, tram and train all nearby. Easy to reach from airport. Federico is friendly, helpful and very approachable. Really appreciated soya milk, and vegan margarine on arrival, very thoughtful.

“A Winner”
Reviewed 6 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Federico is the ultimate host. He supplied us with large amounts of information right from the first contact we had with him. He also supplied us with a quantity of breakfast items upon our arrival which was very gratefully received plus he was at the apartment early in the morning to meet and greet and show us the apartment and how things worked. The apartment itself was very well furnished and everything that is required for a long stay (17 nights) was there. Quite well located to access Trastevere and the old city. A tram stop almost at the door (number 8) gets you to Piazza Venezia in about 15 or 20 minutes. The area was quite safe as far as we were concerned with no problems encountered . We highly recommend Federico and the apartment (Kandinsky House). One point that needs to be included in a factual report is the probability of ambulance siren noise due to the proximity of a large hospital.

David & Cheryl, Thanks for your nice review. It has really been a pleasure hosting you. There is no need to say that the apartment was left in pristine state…. I'm happy that the apartment was up to your expectations and I hope that you will contact me again should you return to Rome. I promise I'll contact you when (hopefully) we come to Australia !
