The apartment was a great base for exploring Rome. We enjoyed getting to know the quiet neighborhood's restaurants (including a nice one outside the front door), stores and attractions, and it's just a 10-minute walk from Metro stations that can take you all over the city.
The apartment itself was spacious and well-appointed — great for a family like mine with teenage children.
The business part of the stay was smooth from start to finish and Anna was accommodating with our travel schedule, which put us into town a bit early one day.
"What can we say more than to be traveling abroad, it is so wonderful to come back to a place that feels like Home. A short walk to a bus 61 which takes you to the metro station at Piazza Bologna and the City of Rome is all yours. Yet, at night when you return, you feel like a Roman. Anna and Allesandra are a delight to work with. The apartment has a huge living dining area, the biggest kitchen I've ever seen in Italy, and extremely comfortable beds. Also, the balcony is divine for an early morning coffee or afternoon vino. This is italian sesame street to put it in american terms. You have everything close by to make a wonderful meal or to have a restaurant the locals visit and everything is so authentic. If you are looking for a touristy place, then this is not for you. But if you are looking for an authentic Roman experience in a precious quiet neighborhood, then I recomend 100%! We will always be grateful to you Anna and Allansandra for the wonderful experience your place gave our family!"

We (couple, child and grandparent) stayed four nights in this wonderful apartment in a lovely residential neighborhood and quickly came to feel like it was our private oasis in an otherwise bustling city. From the very first contact, the sisters (one in US, one in Rome) who provide the apartment were helpful, giving us lots of information and making the process quite simple.
We were met at the apartment after a quick and inexpensive cab ride from the main Rome train station by Alessandra, who showed us around the apartment, explained all of the systems, keys, etc, and made us feel very welcome, including a gift of local wine and pastries!
The apartment has two bedrooms that easily slept the four of us, with a living/dining room, a sizable, traditional, eat-in kitchen, and a full bathroom, complete with washing machine. The entire place is decorated in typical Roman style and feels comfortable and homey, but with important modern amenities like fast, wireless Internet access. Our favorite spot was the balcony with a table and comfortable chairs where we ate breakfast each day and enjoyed the summer's evenings with a drink to unwind after our days of sightseeing.
The apartment is quite close to stores, restaurants and cafés and is just about a 10 minute walk to the closest Metro station, Bologna. There were a few small grocery stores that sold all we needed to cook at home a few times, and take-away pizza and other treats were close-by as well.
This apartment is a perfect spot away from the hordes of tourists, where you feel much more a part of a Roman neighborhood. It is quiet and private, yet just minutes away from the excitement of Rome. Perfect for couples or families.
