Ideal base for sightseeing in Rome. Lovely roof terrace where we could relax after day out. Sandra our host very helpful and friendly.
28 April 2015
Only problem was with the Wi-Fi, a little temperamental, very weak signal, then no signal. Came good with strong signal on morning we were leaving.
Location. Surrounded by History, all within walking distance. Restaurants everywhere

The service that we received after booking but before our trip from Sandra was outstanding and totally reassuring so I knew right from the start that I had made the right choice. The accommodation was spacious and like home from home. The lovely thing is if we needed anything at all they would sort it but you were also left to enjoy, leaving ur breakfast for you and being able to use the kitchen facilities whenever u wanted was fantastic. You seriously cannot get a better location either! Ten out of ten for everything. Cannot fault it so thank you Sandra and Jean for making our trip so wonderful. I will be recommending this accommodation to anyone and everyone who plans to visit Rome. And as for Rome itself ...... Wow!!!

Nothing. The shower head was wobbly, can't think of anything else!
Perfect location - just across the road from the small square which is the heart of Monti. 5 min walk to the Colosseum or to Trajan's Forum or to Cavour metro station. About 12 min walk to the Trevi fountain. The property was spotless and had everything we needed.

The wifi was a little spotty and shower was smalll particularly for my 6ft 3in husband. The water did not stay hot for long either, even though the sink water got hot.
My husband and i loved the location. We were there during new years and it was not loud at all. Sandra the manager was excellent...always responded to email in a timely manner. There was oj,milk bread and cereal available to us...making breakfast included. It was a great space and we really enjoyed ourselves.

A minor negative was a very small kitchen with limited utensils. This wasn't a real issue for us as we didn't intend to cook at the apartment when there was so much amazing food to be sampled in Rome. For a family or those wanting to cook it may be more difficult.
Friendly, welcoming staff who had even decorated the apartment for my husband's birthday -thank you Sandra. Perfect central location which made walking an easy and enjoyable option to all Rome's sights. Surprisingly quiet and peaceful considering the central location. Beautiful, spacious apartment with a delightful roof top terrace. Very comfortable bed. I'd spent ages searching for accommodation for our 4 days in Rome and was not disappointed at all. It was an ideal base for us to explore Rome. I highly recommend this accommodation.

- the breakfast didnt have much variety, though you can buy breakfast at a restaurant 1 min walk from the hotel!
-close to colisseum -fairly close to the central streets, diners and stores -you can walk to everything in rome from the hotel -nice rooms, quiet at night -helpful and excellent staff - superb quality for the price paid, especially since rome is so exepensive.

The WIFI works only in the kitchen/dining room area because of the thick walls. This is not too much of a problem.
This B & B is really close to the Colosseum and the Forum/Palatine Hill, and easy to get to transit to other locales. The neighborhood is excellent. The room and the common areas are great, and it feels more like an apartment than a B & B.

I cant think of anything that I didn't like.
I liked the location, the 200 steps might not be quite accurate but it really is less than 5 minutes away from the Colosseum. You are left to your own devices, but if you have any problems they are easy to get in contact with.

1. Wifi worked only sometimes and in one paticular spot in the room. Needs major improvment. 2. Matress much too hard in room
1. Locatiion 2. Location 3. You alrwady got ur, right? Extremly helpfull owner, would do anything for you! Different rooms, each with different quality. Room 3 is nice but room 2 is wow... try to get it!
24 September 2014
Better Wi-Fi in room is needed plus the kitchen needs a kettle and toaster. Both easy to fix.
Good location to all the many Rome must see locations. Comfortable facilities and quiet and many great places to eat.

Nothing springs to mind so it must have been good!
Location was fabulous and the apartment was perfect. We were in the double room with terrace and it was ideal. Very spacious and lots of character. The apartment was really peaceful and the air conditioning worked a treat! Sandra and Jean were very helpful - thank you!
12 June 2014
Great location and lovely Italian feel. Only minutes from everything you need to see Rome. Nothing was too much trouble for Jean. Thank you very much.

Superbly located, within walking distance from most of the key sights of Rome, this spacious, quite,clean and comfortable prpoerty, provided excellent accomodation during our visit to the city. You walk out of the door and round the corner to excellent cafes, restaurants and shops and yet the apartment is peaceful and quite. The owner, Jean and her assistant Sandra were very friendly and helpful. At our request they arranged transport to and from the airport at a very reasonable price. We are recommending this accomodation to our family and friends and will definitely use it again in our next trip to Rome

Nothing to complain of really. The kitchenette (which is basic but perfectly adequate, as you would expect) would benefit from some additional crockery and utensils - when we mentioned this in passing to Jean, the things immediately appeared. There is a lively square downstairs where the Youth of Rome sometimes party hard on warm nights, so there can be noise in the evenings... but you get that everywhere and, of course, one could just go and join in!
Amazing location (and that hardly does it justice - it is perfectly placed for visiting the main sights in Rome on foot, and the metro is literally 3 minutes away), clean pleasant and spacious apartment, lovely large roof terrace, very comfortable bed, excellent fast Wi-Fi, very obliging landlady... Have recommended it to our daughter who is coming to Rome in the autumn and would happily recommend to anybody.

Nothing, one of the best apartments in Rome!
The location is really great, I love it!! Nearby metro station Cavour which is 3 min from Termini railway station and 5 min walk from Colosseum. Also 5 min walk from Piazza di Venezia and famous shopping street.the price for such location is pretty good.

Needed a shower screen along the bath.We understand this will be put in place quite soon
Excellent location, near to all the sights and all within walking distance. Host was good and apartment very nice.

Although the apartment has potential, at the moment it is VERY basic. It was a lot like camping. There are very few lights in the apartment and at night it is very dark. There are no ceiling lights and only a few wall lamps. The bedroom offers no bedside tables and there was only a small functioning light in a corner. To read at night I used a head light that I happened to have brought with me as a precaution as we were also going to the countryside. The bedding is of poor quality and the bed sofa in the living room is not really fit to sleep in with sheets as there was no way to fold sheets in at the corners. Would have been better with sleeping bags. We were 5 people sleeping in the apartment but were only offered 3 real cushions on the first night. 2 of us were offered small (and very hard) sofa cushions. Additional cushions were however provided when we asked for them. A far as the bathroom goes it was nicely decorated but there was no shower curtain in the bath tub and lots of minor issues like nowhere to put the soap and toothbrushes next to the sink etc. Basic kitchen with no microwave. Breakfast (as is often the case in Italy) doesn't really offer many options for northern Europeans. Wrapped croissants were provided in a tray on the table and there was milk and juice in the fridge. Some cereals and coffee and that was it. We ended up going to the bar across the street for some nice cappuccinos in the mornings. The roof terrace is nice but could do with some nice chairs and some more greenery. The Romanian cleaning lady has at best a questionable attitude towards guests. If you chose to come to this apartment because of the excellent location it is good to be prepared for a somewhat rough ride.
The location is absolutely wonderful in the centre on a nice little Piazza with restaurants and night life. The apartment is quite big (we stayed in the apartment with the roof terrace) and could have the potential to sleep 6 people comfortably if necessary. Sandra, who greeted us was very friendly and is a nice person to deal with. Extra towels were provided when asked for.

There was nothing we didn't like, everything was perfect for our requirements.
We couldn't begin to describe how amazed we were by this apartment, where do I start, it is clean, quiet (but you only have to walk around the corner to be in the middle of everything, spacious and comfy. Sandra (the lady who gave us the keys) was absolutely lovely, friendly and helpful. I have already recommended this apartment to family who are hoping to go to rome and I would recommend to anyone, this really is an excellent accommodation at an excellent price.

Fab location: lovely area full of life with lots of little shops and great restaurants. Very easy for getting around, and great to be able to come and go as we pleased without having to fit in with hotel timings. The apartment came with a guide to the hostess' favourite cafes, restaurants and ice cream places in case you want some recommendations of places to try. We arrived very late but Jean stayed up to let us in, having arranged for a car to pick us up from the airport. She gave us her mobile number so we could easily get in touch if we needed to (very useful as we were able to ask her to book us a car to take us back to the airport at short notice). And of course a very comfy mattress and a great shower!
