“Well-maintained and good value”
Reviewed September 29, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We actually stayed in two of David's apartments--one next door to the other. Both apartments opened onto a pleasant little courtyard with tables and chairs and screened from the street. One apartment had an elaborate jacuzzi, and both apartments were well-maintained. We also thought they were very good values.

The best thing about the apartments is their owner. David is pleasant, helpful, super-well-organized--conscientious and low-key and out of the way when you want but there for you if you need him. Highly recommended.

Two things to note: there are stairs going down from the street to the private terrace the two apartments face onto, so they wouldn't be good choices for persons with certain disabilities--someone using a wheelchair, for example.

Also: we don't have pets and so I don't know what David does or doesn't allow. You can ask him. He'll respond promptly.

Liked best: The owner. Great guy.
Liked least: Kitchens are a little small, which is to be expected.

Dear Patrick and Charmaine ,
Thanks for your review . Both apartments are already advertised as non accessible for wheelchair and I don't allow pets :-)
The 9 little steps ( 10cm high) are viewable both in the pictures and apartment layout plan present in the picture section.
Thanks for being my guests .
Ciao
David

“Great location, great apartment and great host”

This was the first apartment we stayed in during our 2 week long trip through Rome, Florence and Venice. It was in a great location with quick and easy transportation into town by tram or train. David agreed to meet us a lot earlier than the normal check-in time due to our flight arriving at 7 AM. He explained everything about the apartment to us, even showing us how to use the A/C, TV remote and mosquito repellant plug-in.
The apartment is near all the sight seeing sights, but outside of all the touristy areas so it was nice, quaint and quiet. We were really living amongst the locals. The grocery store was a 5min walk.
David had coffee, paper towels and laundry soap already there so we didn't have to buy them and leave them behind. He also had a bottle of wine and some light snacks waiting for us which was a very nice touch. Our towels were neatly folded on the bed. Once he explained everything about the apartment, he provided us with maps and directions to some great sightseeing as well as suggestions. He then actually took us for a walk around the neighborhood to show us where to locate certain places. Of the 3 apartments we rented while in Italy, he was by far the best host.
The apartment was clean, fresh and well lit and very comfortable. There was plenty or closet space and shelving for all of our things. There really is nothing I could say about this place that is negative other than a small issue with water not draining from the shower properly, with he was aware of and was going to repair.
My husband and I really enjoyed our stay in Rome and in this fantastic apartment !

Dear Pat and Charmaine,
Thanks for your kind words! indeed, I confirm how lucky I am in having people like you staying at my apartment! I need the neighbourhood to be appreciated by people that respect its authenticity, and make it less and less "for roman only". I hope that my small but coherent action against wild commercial interests will resonate around me and make the holiday-rental business a way to change this trend. Come back soon

This was a great place to stay and right around a cute area called Arenula. My biggest advice would be to take the tram everywhere and if you're staying for more than 2 days to get the 3 day pass.
