Again Tripadvisor did not let us down - we could not have been happier with our stay at 'A View of Rome'.
We booked the triple room for 5 nights in January as my husband and I were travelling with our daughter and prefer to be together. The bedding is a little tight but it works.
When I first booked we were unable to secure the triple room at 'A view of Rome' and instead booked for another of their apartments. I asked Simona if we could be on standby in case of a cancellation and luckily for us that came about. As the name suggests the view is well worth it.
The room is spotlessly clean with excellent daily service and second daily towel replacement.
Breakfast is more than adequate and very fresh with adequate choices, the best part was chatting with either Daniele or Fillipo over breakfast each morning and all the fantastic advise they were able to provide.
The B&B position is great close to tourist buses and the Metro and walking distance to some major sites as well (including the Vatican City/Sistine Chapel/St. Peter's Basilica).
There are plenty of amazing close bye restaurants as well as shopping and a launderette (we used the Launderette once and our clothes were well washed & dried at a reasonable price).
Daniele and Filippo were simply amazing providing us with all the advise and direction you could ever want as well as bookings if required (especially helpful when you don't speak adequate Italian).
Don't forget to give them at least 2 weeks notice if you want an audience with the Pope (we were unable to manage same as we were not in Rome on a Wednesday!) the other recommended pre booking we were thankful for was the Borghese Gallery (which we thoroughly enjoyed - on our arrival to the gallery we were able to book a guided tour and found this very worth while!).
Free WiFi is adequate and very helpful as a tourist.
On a side note we were travelling with masses of luggage (as our daughter was on her way home from a gap year in London) so for our departure Daniele negotiated and booked a private van to the airport for only 60 euro; Also as our departure flight was 2030 Daniele kindly offered to hold our luggage for the day so we were able to get about easily until our departure.
Honestly the staff are all fantastic and what really make this choice of accommodation stand out from any other (regardless of stars or rating).
