“Perfect location, size, accommodations!”
Reviewed 8 January 2012

We spent 3 days at il Grillo Ai Fori Romani. It was superb. Fantastic location near the Coliseum, Trevi, Trastevere (where our daughter went to school), the ghetto. Well located near good public transit options too. Silvia stocks the cupboards with good breakfast options and the apartment is neat, cute, and a perfect place to crash after a long day in Rome. Even the bed was comfy for a tall guy like myself. Silvia was responsive to questions but stayed in the background. A perfect host. I'd go back again in a heartbeat.

"Excellent stay at Il grillo ai fori romani"

Just bring your clothes to this rental (and you can even wash them in a washing machine and dry them on the outside terrace at the same level)! Everything else is provided: detergent, soap, shampoo, towels, sheets and a pantry full of breakfast items and snacks! The apartment is spotlessly clean, with individually controlled room A/C & heat, in a GREAT location near so many ancient sites and public transportation. The website photos and description reflect accurately the apartment and amenities, and the owners are very nice and welcoming. The free Wifi was great and the owner is quickly responsive to any question. I definitely recommend this property and we hope to stay there again! Many thanks, Mille Grazie to S & P.

We just came back today from Roma, after 3 days in Silvia's apartment and we just wanted to comment and say how GREAT it was:
- very very good location (5mn Coliseum, 15 mn Trevi Fountain, 18mn Piazza di Spagna, 15 mn Ghetto, 20 mn Trastevere....all by walking)
- nice and renovated apartment WITH free wifi !
- pretty little terrace
- fully equipped kitchen
and the most important: very HELPFUL owner, always ready to help....
For example: we ordered online tickets for Coliseum but forgot we have no printer....Sent a mail to Silvia and her father brought the tickets to us in the afternoon....and this twice within 3 days.....BRAVO !
Other example: Siliva left us until 19:00 the last day when she was not obligd to do so...

This is the only apartment out of the 5 we stayed at during our Eurotrip, that felt like home and was worth every penny we paid for. We are a family of 4 and stayed here for 2 nights. It could'nt have been better. Great location. You literally walk to Colosseum, Piazza Venezia, Shopping streets, etc Spacious and very well made house. Ideal for 4 to 6 pax. Great Breakfast provided on a terrace. Super host. Very helpful and concerned WiFi Air conditioners in both rooms Lift in the building All kitchen appliances We really are grateful to Santino for this beautiful trip.
