My partner and I stayed here for 3 days and have never felt more taken care of anywhere else.
Our train got into Rome Termini quite late, and we were worried that we would keep Giovanna up..however when we both trudged up the pavement looking for the location, we heard our names calle dout and she had been waiting outside for us talking with neighbours.
She insisted to carry my luggage (which wasn't that light to be honest), and nothing I said stopped her. She is a slender woman but she insisted that this job keeps her nice and strong.
She showed us to our room and it looked and felt just like a hotel. The room was a decent size and the bathroom was perfect and newly refurnished too.
The room itself was extremely clean, and we were to find out the next morning why. Julia was the clearer for the rooms, and also the neice of Giovanna. She was a hard worker too.
At breakfast we were seated down and given a tray with breads, cheese, pastries and juice and asked if we wanted tea or coffee. Real coffee too, from a cappuccino machine. My partner had expresso every morning and was thrilled we didn't need to purchase it off the street. We sat for ages talking to Giovanna and other guests and learned that she has had the property for years and her family all own similar in the surrounding flats.
She gave us great advice on where to eat, what to see and generally where to start.
We were hugged and given baci and totally embraced by Giovanna, and I am looking forward to coming back to Rome just to visit her and stay here.
I tried to persuade her to come to Australia for a holiday and she can stay at my house, but I don't think she could leave her place and her guests. She is made for hospitality and she loves her job.
It felt so nice to be welcomed and geniuinely appreciated.
