We were greeted by Enrico at Villa Bonelli station which is on a direct line from Fiumicino airport and is thesame line we used to get to Trastevere ( one stop) then the trams to get to Piazza Venezia .We bought a weekly transport ticket for convenience. We had a big lounge/dining area with cooking facilities. It was perfect for us, close enough to the centre of Rome for all our visits and yet peaceful and calm. Shops very close by for food shopping, bars and restaurants also.
Enrico was charming and helpful, always ready to help and give advice
We would not hesitate to return to Casali Villa Bonelli
This is the best accommodation I have ever been to. Its not because of the accommodation, but because of the warm, kind and friendly owner - Mr. Tran. He basically become our friend and made our stay 200% better. When you arrive to the train stop from the airport he comes to pick you up. He took my luggage and walked us to the villa and showed us our room. Sit with us and showed us everything on map from sightseeing to buses, trains, metro stops, everything. Gave tips how to make tours - for example gave us amazing tip what to see before Colosseo. He has amazing dog and since I am animal lover, he brought the dog to me to play with and also brought me his turtles to see them. He left us coffee and tea and also water in the fridge! he explained where is supermarket - LIdl and pizzeria and gelateria where we went to and both amazing! When we were having breakfast outside at the garden he would come and have a chat with us, we would show him our photos, really more a friend. He brought us special treats like bear and sweets, just out of nothing. Kindness of this man is beyond i have ever experienced, because he is awaiting nothing back from you! Just your smile and joy. Its a bit out of the city, but if you take train to Trastevere - 3 minutes (one stop) and then to San Pietro, you are directly at VAtican, its about 15 minutes plus waiting for the second train - sometimes 5 minutes, sometimes 30, depends :) Or you go to Ostiense train stop and then for metro in Piramide! Super fast! Or from Trastevere to station Termini and you are in the center! Super easy. Definatelly coming back, just because of this accommodation and Hung Tran!
