We're a family of four from Brunei, and we stayed at Hakka House for two nights for our Roman holiday. The place was exactly as depicted in the pictures - spacious, pretty, clean and well equipped. Ponte Lungo metro station was literally just around the corner, and it was an easy connection to all the main sites in Rome.
Simona was extremely kind, friendly and helpful, especially with accommodating our weird schedules which were well off the said check-in and check-out time. Simona greeted us the moment we arrived at the apartment, and kindly explained to us where the good Roman sites are, and how to get there. She also had recommendations for restaurants and such, and offered to make reservations for us in case we wanted one. I can't stress enough how amazing this place is, and how kind of a host Simona was. We will definitely come back and stay here again if we're fated to come back to Rome.
