The apartment was beautiful, clean and perfect for our needs of a family of six. We can't thank Luigi enough for helping us when our youngest child got sick and needed to go to the hospital. He went above and beyond to insure we had an excellent time. If you need a larger apartment to stay close to the colosseum this is it!
Thank you Luigi!!!
Stayed for two nights, family of four. Luigi and Christina couldnt have been more welcoming hosts, arranging our transfer from the airport, providing a lovely welcome pack of food, wine and a delicious home baked lemon cake. Apartment views are stunning right next to the Colosseum and as shown online. Have already recommended to friends and would certainly return. Everything we needed from wifi which is essential when you have 2 teenagers and sky tv not that we were in much to watch tv but was good to have it there. You won't be disappointed if you book your stay here
The location was perfect to explore the colosseum, Roman Forum and other tourist sites in the city. The apartment was a 5 minute walk to the colosseum (which you can see from the bedroom window--truly amazing to wake up to that view every morning) and a 15-20 minute walk to Trevi Fountain, Spanish steps, Pantheon and Piazza Navona. It's about a 20-25 minute walk to Trastevere. There were about 3-4 restaurants within a 2 minute walk of the apartment. An express market (open 24 hours a day/7 days a week) was a 5-7 minute walk. Metro station was a 3 minute walk.
The apartment itself was great! There were 5 of us and we didn't feel like we were in each other's way at all. The bedrooms were spacious. Lots of storage room for clothes. There were mirrors in two of the three bedrooms and TV's in all three bedrooms. One bedroom had a desk which was nice since I brought my laptop. The two bathrooms were not huge, but had everything we needed. The kitchen was well stocked with plates, silverware, and pots. There was a microwave, toaster, and juicer. The dining/living room area was spacious.
Luigi was wonderful in all ways!! He made the booking process very easy. He responded immediately to questions before arriving in Rome as well as while we were in Rome. There were 5 of us traveling, but three people were arriving on one flight and the other two people on another flight. Luigi arranged separate pick ups for us. He was at the apartment to greet us, and went over everything we needed to know about the apartment.
My husband and I absolutely LOVED our stay here! The place was not only gorgeous, it was ridiculously close to the Colosseum. You can see this in the photos but I'm here to tell you that it's not an optical illusion, it really is that close. I already miss walking out of my front door and seeing the Colosseum. My neighbor's house isn't quite the same view. The apartment was clean and well furnished, and Luigi was an absolute delight. He gave us some recommendations and some treats to enjoy during our stay. It is very centrally located and is very close to the Metro/bus station. Literally a few minutes walk, if that. I will definitely recommend this place to all of my friends (I already have actually!) and the next time we are in the area we know where we will be staying.
Luigi and Christina were amazing hosts to our family of six on our Christmas/25th anniversary stay at their beautiful apartment. Luigi helped us with all sorts of things from tours to a 6 person van to the airport. The apartment is located in such an incredible location, as it is just across the street from the coliseum and right by the Metro stop. We were able to buy Metro passes and go all over Rome to see the historical sights that were further away and able to walk to the Roman Forum, the Piazza Venezia and so many wonderful restaurants. They were so kind and hospitable and we would definitely love to return to re-visit Rome and stay at their cozy 3 bedroom apartment!
Luigi’s place was perfect for our group of 4 adults. Everyone had their own space and we didn’t have to fight over bathrooms. Luigi was the perfect host. He was there to meet us when we arrived and walked us out when we left (which was sadly, less than 25 hours later). He left us all necessary ingredients to make breakfast and coffee/tea as well as the best ever lemon cake and some prosecco. He is such a gracious, helpful host. The views from the apartment are unbeatable. The metro and Termini station are very close as well. Our only regret was that we only stayed one night!
I would HIGHLY recommend this beautiful apartment. Everything about the apartment was absolutely wonderful - the hosts, the location, the apartment itself. Luigi and Christina met us upon arrival and showed us around the apartment. They were friendly, helpful and gracious. They provided us with maps and gave suggestions and directions for local restaurants and grocery shopping. They stock the apartment with all the essentials and MORE, including coffee, teas, snacks, etc. (I don't want to give too much away, it'll spoil the lovely little surprises they provide!) Luigi even arranged for our transportation upon departure, which was very helpful.
The apartment itself is beautiful. The photos are very accurate. If anything, the apartment is even lovelier than the photos. I think Luigi said the building is 150 years old -- the apartment is beautifully decorated, and retains all the charms of the past with the comforts of today.
Two other things we really appreciated -- the beds are super comfortable And the WIFI is fast and reliable.
The apartment is in a great location -- just steps from the Colosseum and very close to the historic center of Rome. It was very easy to get to everything.
Thank you Luigi and Christina!!!!!
