We spent 5 days in Rome end of October with two kids aged 11 and 8.
First of all we had a very warm welcome from the host Giulia. She couldn't have been more accommodating and helpful.
The apartment is very clean and comfortable, with modern design. The beds are very comfortable and we had no troubles with noise even with backroom windows open. We had breakfast and sometimes lunch at the apartment, the kitchen has all you need.
There are many good restaurants within a 10 to 15 minute walk, of which Giulia very conveniently mapped a dozen out on a big printed map which she gave to us when we arrived. Also on the map are all the food stores including those providing local fresh produce, tourist locations nearby , pharmacy, cash machine, etc ... .
There is much information on Rome in the apartment by travel guides, leaflets and books, most of them in english. Television has Netflix which we used one evening to see a movie with the kids after our legs needed a well deserved rest.
Acces to Rome center is very easy. Metro line A is less then 5 minutes walking and the metro takes you within 5 to 10 minutes to city center; we also quite often used the bus (492) which is also just a few minutes walk. The bus takes a bit longer (20 to 30 minutes or so depending on traffic) but you enjoy the views of th city and the local environment of the apartment.
The vatican is a 10 to 15 minute walk to the basilica, and vatican museum less than 10 minutes walk. The environment of the apartment is pleasant and lively, with good restaurants and shops.
We had a great stay and can highly recommend this wonderful apartment and its location.
A great apartment, located in an ideal location to explore Rome. The Metro for arrival and departure was two minutes walk. For the rest of our stay we walked everywhere. The Vatican was a ten minute walk and the old city a 25 minute walk. All the normal tourist sites a short walk from there. The apartment was superb with all of the conveniences needed. The Netflix was an added bonus. Great value and welcoming host, there is no reason not to stay.
It’s Everything as advertised! A lovely apartment within walking distance to the Vatican! Situated in a nice neighborhood with abundant restaurants & stores in the immediate area! It’s a bustling area during the day but very quiet at night! Only complaint is the towels you see in the pic is all there is! I would stay here again.
What a wonderful apartment to stay in close to the Vatican. The apartment is clean and up to date. It is only a few minute walk to the Cipro Metro Station and the neighborhood has several shops and restaurants. Giulia is a wonderful hostess. She provided us with her own personalized map which pointed our her personal selections of restaurants, bars, etc. I would highly recommend Holiday in Rome for anyone looking for a nice clean place in a fun neighborhood for your stay in Rome!
I have stayed here several times over the past few years. As always, the location near a metro stop, restaurants, and a supermarket is great, the place was spotless and comfortable, and the owner, Giulia, is one of the nicest and most helpful persons I have ever met. I travel to Rome once or twice each year and this will always be my first choice for accommodations.
We have rented many apartments while traveling and this might be my favorite. The place is lovely and so well equipped. Giula was wonderful with eating recommendations and other things in the area. This place isn't in the heart of Rome but near the Vatican. We loved it because it was more like the experience of living there than the typical tourist. Would for sure rent again if we return to Rome. Also, we loved the artwork in the apartment. Wondering if the owner, or a family member is an artist. Great place.
We thought this apartment was one of the best rentals we have had. The location was great - minutes from great metro/bus line, lots of local shops and restaurant.
The apartment, in a residential area, was well maintained and had everything you could ask for. Giulia, the owner, was very thoughtful and helped to make this a great weekend break. And of course, Rome is wonderful!
We hope to come back again. Thanks Giulia!
