This was our final stop on our european holiday and it was fantastic! The hosts were amazing and extremely accommodating. Beautiful welcoming gift on arrival and lots of recommendations to help with our stay. Apartment was in the most perfect little spot and had all the amenities you require. Would absolutely stay here again - Thankyou!
We booked this flat after reading review after review of how wonderful these hosts are, and now that we've stayed there, we have to add our own testimony, too. THANK YOU to Pietro and Eleonora for being such wonderful hosts to us during our very short stay in Roma. What a perfect place to land! The inside is caringly furnished, down to the littlest detail, and Pietro and Eleonora really went above and beyond in committing to be there upon our arrival, to help us communicate w our driver from the airport (which they were kind enough to line up for us) and to help educate us on the do's and dont's of being a tourist in Rome. We so appreciate it! This is really something given that they don't just live next door -- this couple really makes an effort to be there for their guests, and when you are in town, you are a priority to them. That is so rare, and something money cannot buy, let alone demand.
And then we have to give five stars for the location as well. Literally a block and a half from the Tiber and just steps from the Piazza del Drago....there is not a better, more central place in Roma where we would want to stay. And then the charm of the neighborhood...wow. We walked *everywhere,* mouths open, from this charming location, and even our private tour guide, who has lived in Roma for 9 years, was surprised that we were able to find a place this centrally located that is this affordable. In short, friends, this place is a find, and so are the hosts.
Great vacation rental in Trastevere/Rome Italy. Pietro and Eleonora are exceptional hosts and were so helpful with making taxi arrangements upon our arrival at Rome airport and again to the train station when we headed out of Rome. The communication prior to our arrival and during our visit was clear and helpful. They made restaurant recommendations and had a wonderful welcome basket for us upon our arrival. The rental was clean and well stocked and within walking distance to many of the sights of ancient Rome. Even though the rental was close to the city, it was quiet at night. Many nice restaurants and pubs in the Trastevere area, so you don't have to walk far for a nice meal after having walked all day long. We didn't cook any meals, but the kitchen appeared to be well stocked with anything you would need. We would recommend this vacation rental to anyone looking for a nice, clean, quiet place to stay while exploring Rome. Thanks again Pietro and Eleonora for your great hospitality. So nice to meet you both and wish all the best to you.
Our stay in Rome could not have been better and the location and high quality of our accommodations was the major reason. Pietro and Eleanora greeted us and introduced us to their Best Nest and made sure we were comfortable. It is a lovely little apartment very conveniently located to all the sights we wanted to visit and close to many excellent restaurants if you don't want to cook for yourselves. We will not hesitate to recommend it and them to all our friends who are traveling to Rome.
Pietro and Eleonora are amazing hosts, they go out of there way to make your trip enjoyable and easy. I stayed at their lovely nest for two weeks as a woman travelling alone and felt very secure. The apartment was immaculate and the location near the Tiber was close to everything. Sweet neighborhood with lively cafes and bookstores at the same time very peaceful at night. Pietro and Eleonora would email me every few days to see how things were going. They even found an art store for me that I was looking for to find some sculpting tools for my husband who Is an artist. I have never come across such gracious hosts and lovely Apartment. I highly recommend!
Nice apartment and very good service. The apartment is located in the heart of Rome in a interesting part of the city, within walking distance to the most traditional sites of Rome.
We loved The Best Nest! My son and I stayed for four nights, and a friend joined us for three. The neighborhood is terrific, with several cute, good, affordable restaurants right around the corner and the river steps away. We walked everywhere and were always so happy to come back home away from the tourist crowds to our comfortable little home.
The bedroom is a good size, with a full and a twin bed, and the living room has a sofa bed. The kitchen is well-equipped (we ate breakfast in the apartment every morning, and cooked dinner one night), and the bathroom is great, with plenty of room to put toiletries, etc.
The apartment is in an interior courtyard (where it is pleasant to pull chairs out and sit in the evening), so it's very quiet.
Pietro and Eleonora were waiting at the apartment when we arrived (the directions were complete and easy to follow), and they were full of information for us. They also left us a nice bottle of wine and a basket of biscuits, etc.! They are very sweet.
The living room is on small side (the sofa bed takes up most of the space when it's open), but that didn't bother us, and, as another reviewer said, there is not a lot of natural light. This was a plus for us in Rome during a heat wave, though. It was always at least 10 degrees cooler inside even before we turned on the air conditioner!
In the past, I always thought of Rome as just a big, impersonal place. After staying in The Best Nest for a few days, it felt like home! We hope to come back someday.
