LOVED this penthouse! Hosts were attentive and had excellent recommendations for area restaurants, grocery stores, and gelato shops. Location was perfect! Will definitely contact for our next stay in Rome.
The apartment is very comfortable, stylish spacious and clean and was ideal for our party of five ladies celebrating a special birthday. The balcony was marvellous for our morning coffee and a glass of wine in the evening before heading out for dinner.
The apartment is situated in Romi Monti which is in one of the oldest neighbourhoods in Rome. The location really couldn't have been better with the ancient sites a short stroll away and a 15 minute walk into the centre for the Trevi/ Spanish steps. If you don't want to walk, the metro is just around the corner to take you into the centre or Vatican. We'd recommend buying a Roma Pass which gets you metro and skip the line tickets. The tourist information centre is very close to the apartment - you can't miss it.
There are lots of superb traditional trattorias/restaurants nearby the apartment and we were pleasantly surprised at the menu prices. There's something to suit all budgets. If you want to buy food or stock up on wine, the Elite Supermarket is five minutes walk away. There are some smaller mini markets dotted around but they are pricey in comparison.
Alberto was a great host meeting us on arrival and storing our luggage until we could get into the apartment. He is on hand if you need him but not intrusive in any way. Thanks Alberto.
We've had a great holiday, thrown our coins in the Fountain -so we will be back one day.
My husband, sister and I spent 4 days in Alberto's beautiful apartment.
The decor was very sleek and modern. The view was astounding and the location cannot be beat. It would be difficult to find a more beautiful, roomier or cleaner apartment in Rome.
In addition, Alberto was so accommodating with advice and taxi arrangements.
I highly recommed this rental and would certainly rent it again, were I to return to Rome!
My husband and I, together with our five children, stayed in Alberto's apartment in April 2017. Before the trip Alberto was in contact with us providing great informaton as to get to get the apartment from train or air. Upon arrival Alberto greeted us at the apartment and gave us a run through of the apartment as well as the nearest train stations and groceries stores. The apartment is lovely with lots of space and a lovely terrace. It was very clean and had good amenities. It is a stone's throw away from the Colesseum and about a maximum 15 -20 minutev walk from a lot of the major attratctions in Rome. The only tourist site we got a train to was the Vatican. Alberto lives in the apartment below and is quick to answer questions or offer advice. He very kindly offered to organise a shuttle for us to the airport. I would strongly recommend a stay in Alberto's apartment which resulted in a magical stay in Rome.
The apartment is wonderful. Very roomy and comfortable. Located just a short walk from the colosseum metro stop, the colosseum itself, the roman forum, and numerous dining options. The owner, Alberto, is very helpful and accommodating, and lives in the building, so if there are any issues, he is available to assist.
We highly recommend this property.
