Our family of 4 stayed here for 5 nights. The location was great, literally steps from the Imperial Fora. The apartment was spacious and very clean. Everything was in good working condition. We appreciated the well-stocked fridge. Silvia was very helpful prior to our arrival in providing information and advice regarding transportation to and from airport, as well as hooking... More

My boyfriend and I stayed in this apartment for three nights in early June, and we had a lovely stay. The owner, Sylvia, is so friendly and welcomed us in to her beautiful apartment which was fully stocked in every sense. The fridge was full, and even had a bottle of bubbly in. Everything was immaculately clean, and it was... More

Our family of 6 (including a 5 month old infant), loved our stay at Silvia's apartment. She and her mother met us at the apartment on arrival (after they gave great directions on getting to the apartment), and then gave us a quick rundown about the apartment. We were blown away with how they had stocked the apartment for us... More

Our group of four couldn't be happier with Silvia and her darling mother. We got here right off the plane, after Silvia arranged for a taxi to meet us at the airport. Nothing better to have a smiling face holding my name on a placard to whisk us into town. Instant cred with the family! Mom met us at the... More

Excellent location, 5 min to Colloseo. Easy access to all other tourist sites. The apartment is very clean and has A\C, iron, hair dryer, toaster, vacuum cleaner, washing machine, free WiFi. Fully stocked kitchen with everything you need for breakfast. Silvia was very nice and helpful. Would highly recommend this apartment and will stay again when in Rome.

We reserved this place based on the Tripadvisor ratings. We weren't disappointed. This place is very centrally located, within striking distance of the Collosseum, Fori Romani and 10-15 mins walk to the Trevi Fountain and Spanish steps. You don't really need a means of transport if staying in this apartment. The apartment itself is very charming, located in a vintage... More

There is absolutely nothing I could fault with this apartment. The location was superb! You could not be anymore central. Roman Forum - across the road, 5mins - Colosseum, 10mins - Trevi Fountain, 15mins - Spanish Steps....ideal for getting about and site seeing. The apartment is very charming in an authentic Italian style that totally adds to the overall Rome... More

The location could not be more perfect, the owners are lovely and responsive and we enjoyed our stay immensely. The kitchen was stocked for breakfast and snacks and it was wonderful. Finding a neighborhood market isn't as easy as you would think and it saved us time that we used to tour Rome! We will stay there again.

Four of us stayed two nights at this cosy little apartment right by the Roman Ruins and it was ideal for our last two days in Rome. The location as perfect with easy access to all tourist sites. Upon arrival, we were met by Silvia's parents, who are the sweetest people. Between their English and our very limited Italian, we... More
