My husband and I just returned from a trip to Italy. We chose Appia Antica Resort based on its reviews on Tripadvisor. As a result of the reviews we walked in with high expectations. I am thrilled to report that our expectations were not only met, they were exceeded!
The resort itself is lovey and charming; a wonderful and tranquil setting just miles from the heart of Rome. Our apartment was beautiful and fully equipped with everything we needed and more, including breakfast foods and treats. Everything was maintained perfectly. We could not have been more comfortable or at home.

Mauizio was a perfect host. He greeted us warmly and we had wonderful conversations about Italy and Roman antiques. Paola and Julia could not have been more helpful. Recommendations for dining both in Rome and near the resort were terrific. The restaurants near the resort were not only first rate, but also very reasonably priced, as were the restaurants they recommended in the heart of Rome. With their advice, we were able to enjoy the restaurants that the locals enjoy. At the resort's recommendation, we were connected with a great private tour guide for both the Vatican and Ancient Rome; the private tours were well worth the cost! In short, nothing was too much trouble for the Appia Antica staff, reservations for restaurants and cabs were made on our behalf and confirmed. The service was exceptional.

The location of the resort is particularly wonderful. A short walk leads you to the beautiful Appian Way. We enjoyed a number of strolls in that peaceful setting. Getting to and from Rome via the bus was a breeze and it was wonderful to leave the heart of the city and return to this peaceful haven at the end of a busy day. Truly relaxing.
If we could give more than 5 stars we would! We highly recommend this resort and hope to go back there some day. Our thanks to everyone at Appia Antica for all they did to make our stay so memorable.

Dear Ginny M,

What a wonderful review you left! We are impressed and grateful, thank you!

We are happy to know that you enjoyed our recommendations, it means that we are still good at it! ;-)

You are right, we live in a peaceful area compared to the hectic center. It is amazing how the landscapes turns to green here, just 4th miles away from the Coliseum!

But Rome is a magic city also for this reason.

We wait for you to come again, it would be a pleasure to welcome you.

Loved this hotel/resort! We wanted something off the beaten path and away from the crowds of Rome and Appia Antica Resort was perfect. From the location to the staff to the apartment. Everything was top notch! If you needed anything someone was always there to assist you. Thank You, Julia, Paola and Maurizio!!

I have just returned after a wonderful three night break with six friends.
I don't think I have ever had such amazing service. We were collected from the airport by the owners Mauricio and his wife Maria Luisa. What lovely, friendly people.
The apartment was beautiful with tasteful design by Maria Luisa. The kitchen was stocked with an array of food and drink.
During our stay the staff were so attentive and helpful. Thank you Paola for all the helpful information and Julia for driving us back to the airport.
The centre of Rome is a bus ride away but that is more than compensated for by the fabulous accommodation. I loved the garden with the Koi pond and green parakeets that flew from tree to tree.
Thank you so much for making our stay so memorable.

Dear clairebrown1,

Your words made our day!

As experienced travelers, we know what a traveler needs and we try to help our guests by providing them with information on how to best navigate Rome, a city so full with things to see and do that it's overwhelming. In addition, we want to offer a relaxing and peaceful Roman home to use as a base for our guests' holidays: that's why our apartments have been carefully equipped with anything one might need, just like a normal house, to create a home away from home.
I am glad to hear that you found AAR to your liking and both Paola and Julia helpful, all of us work hard to make sure you have the best possible holiday, so it seems that with you we reached our goal! :)

Having you here was an amazing experience for all of us as well and we all hope that you'll have the chance to come back for another Roman holiday very soon. In the meantime, we all wish you the best and thank you so much for this amazing review!

Just back from a truly fantastic short break in Rome staying at this most memorable apartment. Their care and attention from the moment we booked was just unbelievable. When we booked earlier in the year they were in touch giving us lots of information and advice and kept in contact until we arrived this week.
We had arranged for them to pick us all up from the airport and they took us to the apartment via the Appia Way giving us a roman history lesson on the journey. We were given a tour of the resort by Maurizio when we arrived (he had also driven us) and we were delighted with our choice. Our four bedroom apartment itself was beautiful, tastefully designed and attention to detail was exceptional having absolutely everything we needed including a full fridge of complimentary food and drink. We were greeted by Paola who gave us our tour of apartment and then went through details of transport and amenities. We can not speak highly enough of the resort and staff and would highly recommend a stay here.

Dear partner15,

Thank you, thank you for this amazing review!

Everyone here is so very happy to know that you enjoyed your stay so much. Having you ladies here with us was an amazing experience for us as well.
Our apartments have been decorated by Maria Luisa, my wife, who is an interior designer. The idea behind Appia Antica Resort is to create a relaxing and comfortable environment to use as a base to explore Rome and everything it has to offer. As experienced travelers we know how stressful being in a new place can be, so we want to make sure our guests have everything they need both in the apartments and in terms of information with which to navigate the city. We want them to find a home away from home here with us!
We couldn't be more glad to know that you liked what we could offer you and that you found the staff's service helpful!

We all thank you so very much for your lovely words and hope to have the chance to have you with us here again very soon!

...Ladies that lunch...Amazing title for an amazing party like yours! Thank you for this review, it is really a pleasure to hear that all went well. When it comes to 7 ladies, it is such a great responsibility, mostly for just one man ;-) Luckily, there was Paola and my wife Maria Luisa to assist me.
