After a long flight from Australia my friends and I were happy to be greeted by Alessandra! After traveling by the lift to our second floor apartment we were pleased to find a comfortable and spacious apartment with plenty of room for us.
The apartment was clean and simply furnished and we were given a tour by Alessandra who then sat with us and told us about some public transport options to help us get around Rome. While Alessandra's English is not 100% she tried very hard and was able to make conversation with us.
The plans for our holiday were to spend our first 3 days and last 4 days in Rome. We were overwhelmed and grateful to find a traditional Easter cake waiting for us when we returned for our second leg.
Overall the service we received from Alessandra exceeded our expectations. We had expected, like most rental apartments to pick up a key and be left to our own devices - but this was not the case.
We did not expect hotel style accommodation and service. We chose to rent an apartment, rather than book into a hotel to get a real experience of living like a Roman.
If you are looking to come to Rome and stay in an apartment, eat in an apartment and laze around all day then this is not the place for you - Why would you when you are in close vicinity of The Vatican, shops, restaurants and Ottiviano metro station. However, if your idea of a trip to Rome includes seeing the sights, visiting museums and eating lost of Pizza, Pasta and gelato then this is the ideal accommodation for you!
