We had a wonderful week staying in this very comfortable and well equipped apartment. It was a great bonus having both indoor and outside space. Giulia could not have been more welcoming and was extremely helpful with advice about the city. She provided us with a great transport map which was invaluable and booked taxis for us to and from the airport, which we highly recommend. We found the bus and metro systems suited us best and were able to get from the apartment to the city centre in about 25 minutes. However, we also walked in via the Borghese park several times. We would love to return to stay at the apartment again and have no hesitation in recommending it.
We've just come back from a wonderful holiday in Italy and I'm so glad that I booked this apartment to stay in. I was travelling with my husband and brother and I wanted somewhere that suited us all and this immaculate, tastefully decorated apartment ticked all the boxes. During our time there, our sightseeing included The Colosseum, Tivoli, Sperlonga, Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius- and returning home to such a lovely apartment after a long day was bliss.
Parioli is a really pleasant area to stay in and once we'd found our bearings, we felt really comfortable walking around there and visiting the restaurants that Giulia, the owner, had recommended.
As has been stated already by other reviewers, Giulia is an amazing host. She's very organised, accommodating and approachable. She shows a genuine interest in ensuring that you have a good holiday and provides lots of useful information about the area and public transport. We only came home yesterday but are already discussing visiting Italy again next year- and we'll be booking this apartment again when we do.
Guilia went above and beyond to ensure our perfect stay. As we were arriving by train we choose to take the bus to the apartment. Guilia met us at the stop and pointed out the locations of restaurants, cafes, grocery stores, etc. on the way to the apartment. The place itself is well appointed and surprisingly cool and comfortable considering the heat outside. The kitchen has everything you will need.The patio is wonderful and a great place to unwind after a hectic day of sight seeing. Guilia herself is fantastic and was more then willing to help make restaurant reservations and helped us arrange an early morning ride to the airport.

We are a family of four (husband/wife and 2 grown up kids) from Scotland who visited Rome for 7 nights, staying at Grand Tour. The apartment was spotless when we arrived and the accommodation and decor was of the highest standard and all of the household appliances we needed were provided. Parioli is a lovely, safe district surrounded by parkland and with excellent transport links to all of the sights of Rome.
Giulia, the owner, was wonderful. She was waiting to meet us when we arrived and took us on tour of the local area, pointed out the best shops, restaurants and bus/tram stops and made us feel very welcome and 'at home' in Rome even within a few hours of stepping off the plane. We visited two of the recommended restaurants (the Sicilianedde and Matarello) on two occasions and were delighted with them.
As others have commented, she also supplied a welcome pack of local foods - everything we needed to cook up a quick meal on our first night, and even a bottle of Prosecco in the fridge - Cheers Giulia!
This has been the best city break rental apartment experience we have had and that's all thanks to Giulia's thoughtfulness and attention to detail. If you are looking for somewhere to stay while visiting Rome I recommend you consider Grand Tour!
