We stayed at Francesco's place in May of 2013. As we arrived, Francesco was there coming in to stock the refrigerator with drinks and snacks. The apartment was great—one room has a nice little balcony. VERY clean and new. We were impressed with Francesco's personal touch, which included a local cell phone to use if we needed help. The apartment's location is an easy walk to the H Tram, which takes you straight over the Tiber and near to the Pantheon. Each morning, Francesco would come over at a time we asked for, bringing fresh baked goods. He would brew coffee, answer questions about our day's plans, etc. We honestly felt like we were staying with a friend. Would recommend it to anyone. Various details—the rooms do not have a view of Rome, and we shared a bathroom between the 2 rooms. We also had the best gelato on via Trastevere right by the river. We were 4 people, mid 40s and walked everywhere most of the time—the apartment is well located but not in city center. Streets can be loud in Rome, but the double paned windows did a great job of blocking that. Fans in each room, full length mirror which my wife appreciated.
