We've just returned from staying at Cesare apartment for four nights the week after Easter. It was just as described on the website - beautifully furnished and with a lovely outside area shared with the other apartment (both ground floor, opposite each other). The walk to Cornelia metro stop was only about 10 minutes and the shops only about 6 mins away - trying to buy stuff from market stalls speaking only a few words of Italian was interesting! (I'd recommend being able to speak the language outside the centre of Rome) No supermarkets in the area but a selection of smaller shops sold essentials. Using the Metro was easy and by Thurs we were also using buses. Rome wonderful, of course - it rained on and off, but the sun was warm when it shone. We saw all the main sights.
In the flat, beds were comfy, towels and linen spotless and tv provided in bedrooms (but not used by us much). Free wifi meant we were on our phones and ipad in the evenings. Bathrooms were clean and worked fine, even the jacuzzi. Kitchen was equipped but only with the essentials - we missed having a small saucepan! - perhaps most people eat out, although we cooked two main meals in due to dietary restrictions. Eating out was also very expensive. Katia bought us some food provisions for our first 24 hours, as we arrived on a bank holiday and shops were shut, and gave us them as a gift! She also arranged a taxi for us from the airport, met us at the flat when we arrived, spoke very good English and told us all we needed to know about it. Afterwards, when we reported a couple of breakages, she told us not to worry about them. Also very quick to answer emails before our stay.
All in all, fantastic hospitality which made our stay as easy as it could be. Thank you!

Excellent communication, all clear and professional around reservation and booking, honest description of location and apartment.
Not the cheapest stay, but private parking behind the gate, and aircon in both rooms, was well worth the price.
We were "lucky" to hit the very hot weather (38C), so walk (by 4-lane busy road) from apartment to the metro station was not very pleasant, but we did it only twice per day, so not a major pain.
Absolutely recommended for couples, and families with kids (parents: negotiation skills with kids are must, for that walk when coming back from metro after all day of sightseeing :-)
Another comment: I slept like a baby in this flat - totally quiet during the night! If I return to Rome this will be my first choice of stay.
What a fantastic place with tastefully done interiors, a colorful courtyard, a terrace with a gazebo..the list goes on. To find a place like this in a city like Rome and at great value must be a miracle of some sorts. We were a group of 8 including children and were fortunate to stay at this lovely place. Katia was a great hostess and took care of all our queries. The bus stop to the metro is a short walk away and from the metro all important locations in Rome are easy to reach. We stayed here for 5 nights and had a great time. Will stay gladly here anytime we travel to Rome again.
We spent 15 days vacation in Italy, in Florence Rome an Neaples;
We rented Cesare apartment because we are a family of 4.
It is located at the end of a narrow street with no chance to park but the apartment offers us its private place to prk our car.
We have welcomed by the owners, very very friendly, and they have given information and help to visit rome.
The apartment is new, clean and equipped with everything you need for a holiday.
The owners are building a sun deck with a wooden floor and gazebos that will be ready by the end of April.
I strongly suggest this place.
I recommend this place for anyone who wants to go on vacation in Rome.
This was a great apartment, we stayed for 3 nights. It was spacious, clean and had everything we needed. The courtyard area was lovely. We were welcomed and given lots of information which was very helpful. We were only 10 mins from the metro and shops which meant everything was accessible. Prior to our trip Katia answered all our questions and arranged our pick up to and from the airport which meant we did not have to worry about anything. Thank you.
