The apartment is in an excellent location, within walking distance of all the main attractions in the centre of Rome, as well as tram stops and a metro station with escalators. The apartment building has a lift and is on the flat, so it is perfect for guests with mobility difficulties or small children - or just those who are tired out after a long day of sight-seeing! The apartment itself is immaculate, spacious and comfortable as per the pictures. It is also double glazed and therefore remarkably quiet for somewhere within sight of the Colosseum. I cannot recommend it highly enough. Giuseppina is a wonderful host in every way, from booking, checking in and generously sharing her local knowledge.
I don't know if I could say the words that could possibly described my family and mine's stay other than PERFECT!!! From the moment I booked, the owner, Giuseppina, contacted me immediately to offer her assistance in all things that would make my stay the exact way I wanted. She was so accommodating, it truly felt like meeting up with a family friend.
The flat was not only immaculate and comfortable, she even organized some tours ( to the most populated tourist sites and some off-the-beaten track), with your own personal guides - a MUST when you go to the Vatican and other heavily-populated areas. There was even some confusion for my family, who were arriving separately from me, that arrived at the property while I was away and instead of them waiting outside for me, Giuseppina rushed back to the rental to let them in. Truly considerate and compassionate to all her guests :-)
Location was superb, plenty of restaurants and shops within a block to the rental where you will always have things that you need for meals, snacks and day-to-day products. The neighborhood was safe, so safe that my family and I had no problem walking nearby after midnight to take pics of the nearby Coliseum and restaurants and ruins that are right at your feet wherever you turn!
I truly cannot express how at home my family and I felt, and while I want everyone to experience what I did at this wonderful rental, I'm also selfish and want to keep it to myself so that upon my definite return there will be no competition on availability!! *laughing*
This was our second wonderful stay at Casa di Bine and it was even better than the first one. The apartment was absolutely perfect for our family of 5, this time we traveled with a child and we had all we needed, our daughter loved the apartment particularly, thanks to a few cute toys and books that the host, Giuseppina, left for her. The apartment is so bright and quiet, when you are in, you don't realize you are in the deepest heart of the city. Giuseppina was fantastic again. She arranged private transport from the airport, that was extremely comfortable and helpful. What made the difference in this second trip was a private guided tour (child friendly!) that she arranged for us, it was unforgettable. I warmly recommend this apartment and the host's suggestion, you won't regret!
I have no words enough to describe what a wonderful stay we had at Casa di Bine. The apartment is quiet, impeccably clean, very bright and spacious. We were a family of 6 adults and found it very comfortable, especially the bathrooms and the beds. There is a small elevator that helps to bring up and down the luggage. Giuseppina was a delightful host, who went over and beyond by helping us with the transport from/to the airport, and arranging a couple of guided tours with a local and very knowledgeable guide, which definitely made the difference in our visit to beautiful Rome. I warmly suggest this place to other families and will surely come back when I’m in Rome again.
We had the pleasure of staying at Casa di Bine for 12 days earlier in September as guests of Giuseppina. The apartment and hostess were Great! We were a party of 4 adults and took full advantage of the 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. All of the beds were comfortable. The apartment was just as it appeared in the photos, if anything, it was better. Super clean and well appointed. We appreciated the handbook and suggestions for restaurants and food marts. We did our breakfast each morning at the apartment and some dinners as well. There are a couple of food marts just across the street making it very convenient. It was nice to have a real home to come back to at the end of a long day of sightseeing.
The locations was perfect. Just a couple of blocks to the Coliseum and within walking distance of practically the entire city. Great restaurants and markets.
Giuseppina was always available for any questions we had, and even checked in with us to make sure we were totally comfortable. We enjoyed our stay and would do definitely do it again. Thanks for the memories!
