Unfortunately we did not have the chance to meet Frank as he was on vacation when we visited, however he made sure to leave us in good hands with Jonathan and made our stay very enjoyable. When we arrived, Jonathan had given us a map of Rome, a brake down of the metro/city/places to see and great advise on what... More

What a find. Gorgeous place, great location, and New York style! Fantastic communication from Frank. Helped with advice, and suggestions when our luggage did not arrive with Vueling (a truly terrible experience) Frank helped with arranging a transfer- and the driver waited patiently whilst we were dealing with lost luggage. The apartment is in a great block- super location we... More

Amazing stay!!! Cant say enough positive things about Frank, he took the time to show us on a map all the must do's in Roma, allowed us to leave our luggage in a secure location since we arrived so early, and even found us a link for tickets to the sold out Stones concert and made a reservation for us...

We stayed at Frank's house twice while in Italy. The first time was for 5 nights in the room with the ensuite bath and terrace. The room was exactly as described and very comfortable. The apartment is within walking distance to all of the major sites in Rome, close to Termini and to the Metro line. It was nice coming... More

We stayed at Frank's house on 31 Mar - April 2. It's about 8-min walk from Termini Station, with luggage, probably 10-min. From Fiumicino Airport, there are a number of airport coaches which take you to Termini, and very convenient. We took the Terravision, with Frank's recommendation. There is another Metro station which is nearer Frank's House but we commuted... More

Just stayed here with a friend of mine. Was an excellent base for exploring Rome, very central and easy to get just about anywhere. The accommodation itself was perfectly suitable for us: The room was very large with a very comfortable mattress and seating area, and it was all very clean. The room also had a great ensuite bathroom and... More

Frank gave us a great off-season rate for what turns out was a perfectly comfortable and very pleasant stay. The room was spacious and cozy, and had all of the amenities that we needed. The bed was very comfortable, and the bathroom, though external the room, was absolutely private and impeccably clean. Frank's local insight and advise was also much... More

A well-priced, very clean and sentral accomodation in the middle of Rome. Short walk to several of the most famous attractions, shops and restaurants. I always arrive in Rome by train and it is a ten minutes walk from the train station. Very convenient! I return to Frank's House whenever I visit Rome, I can not find any reason why... More

Had a wonderful time at Franks house. Great location. Great rooms. Good guidance from owners Frank and Sole as to places to eat and things to see. Location is close to train and subway stop. The roof top garden patio was wonderful, we had a picnic there. Would recommend this place!
