What Past Guests Are Saying
We had been given directions from the metro station but they could have been more specific as we were unsure of which street exit to take from the underground.We were greeted by the owner who provided us with good information regarding the neighbourhood. We visited in December and I had made a point of asking how to adjust the temperature yet it didn't seem to make a differnce as the appartment was still a little cold in the evenings.
The thing we enjoyed most about the appartment is that it is indeed very close the the Colosseum. Just a short walk to the end of the street and through a lovley park and there it is.
We had booked the double apartment as we were a family of five traveling with another family of four. Plenty of room and well equipped. I hadn't noticed personally, but our friends did complain that their bathroom and floors were not clean. This was discouraging as our only other complaint was the hefty cleaning fee of 80 euro for the double appartment.
Response from Paola & Valerio - 05/08/2013
Hi, I'm sorry that you report that one bathroom was not clean, because the apartment is always cleaned carefully.
In fact we have never received this kind of complaint.
I have to specify that in the cleaning fee (80 euros) are also included towels and linen.

Great short term stay
We came to this rental and needed all three rooms as well as the kitchen area. We split our stay into 2 parts-as we left for 5 days to head to the Cinque Terre. We were leaving from this location then to head to a 12 day Mediterranean Cruise. Paola was wonderful to work with. She was there when we arrived and helped us get settled. She was willing to store some of our luggage while we left for the 5 days and we felt that was very safe.
We loved the location near the metro and St. Peters. Walking to different locations was easy with the map she provided. The kitchen was small but had all we needed.
The apartment is right across the street from the national music orchestra and so we had the pleasure to listen to them practice. Even being on a main street, with the windows closed, you didn't hear the traffic. If you wanted to open them-of course you would hear more of the street traffic, but we are in the city so were ok with that.
There are some local restaurants close that we visited and they were good. We also shopped for some foods and did our own cooking in the kitchen. It was a nice visit for us.
Each bedroom has its own bathroom, which was great.

Rome trip with Friend for Wedding
We went to a wedding in Rome and looked at many sites before finding Marmi's apartment. Its literally steps from the Colloseum, in a great district with Trattorias, a superb wine bar and an Irish bar. A small supermarket is close and has everything you would need. Marmi helped us with a tour guide for the vatican and even booked tickets for us for the Sistine Chapel. She helped us with a car service too. Marmi uses locals to help you with tours and you discover so much more information. Her apartment is lovely, super clean and safe and very secure. I can't wait to take my family to Rome and will definitely call Marmi. She made our trip so stress free and easy. Thanks Marmi!
Lake Tahoe, California, USA
Six of us (4 adults, 2 kids) stayed here in early September. The location is ideal for touring Rome - not far from either of the metro lines and so close to the Colosseum! Transaction went very smoothly - they were there to meet us when we arrived and gave us a tour of the apartment and some advice on the neighborhood. They also arranged airport transportation for us which was nice not to have to worry about, though it was expensive. Apartment was well equipped and spacious, and the neighborhood seemed very safe. Lots of nice cafes and restaurants a very short walk away.
Our only complaints were that the beds we not all that comfortable (though, admittedly, we have very nice mattresses at home so maybe that wouldn't be a concern for others), and when we were getting ready in the morning there didn't seem to be enough hot water. On the last day, they said checkout was 10:30 but arrived at 9:30 to start cleaning. It also would be nice to be able to pay the (large) balance by credit card as we arrived on a Sunday with little chance to get Euros. All in all, though, I would definitely recommend the apartment.
A perfect place in the perfect location!
The apartment was spotless clean on a residential street close to Coliseum. It was a perfect stay for our group of 8 adults. There is a pretty big supermarket nearby. Paola was very pleasant, friendly and reliable.The owners arranged for a car pickup for our group from the airport which was more cost efficient and convenient than taking 2 cabs. I would definitely stay there again!

Lovely apartment with perfect location!
Paola & Valerio were wonderful hosts in this lovely double apartment! We were allowed to leave our luggage before check in time, so convenient! The location close to Colosseum and other sights convenient to bus and trains. My family and I were so pleased the with the apartment(s), they were clean and inviting, everything you need provided. Thank you so much for sharing your apartments with our family, definitely would recommend staying with Paola & Valerio...Grazie!

Apartment was clean, and more than comfortable for the seven people. Six adults and one teenager. Air conditioner worked great. One of the bedrooms backs up to an office, and each morning at 9:00 am was awaken from the activity going on in the office.
Was not close to the train, about a 15 minute walk. Without lugggage not so terrible, but with the luggage I would suggest get a cab. Felt very safe in the apartment. Very secure.
Three of the six adults were robbed in Rome on the train. Tourist need to be extra careful, because the police certainly aren't going to be of any help. Paola seemed a little surprised that my brother-in-law gave the police department the address of the apartment we were staying at.
All in all Paola and Valerio were very helpful in answering all my questions, and always getting back to me as soon as I contacted them. Would recommend this apartment, and certainly would stay there again myself.

Flawless and personal
I would totally recommend this apartment. The service provided by Paola and Valerio is excellent from the first moment of contact. they every helpfully provided assistance with transport to and from the airport in Rome and were generally very amenable.
The apartment is in an excellent location, it is well maintained and is set out in a convenient and spacious way.
It is very hard to find somewhere with a good location, clean, pleasant and affordable and this apartment is just that. On top of that you get the personal touch which really makes the difference.
Fair Dinkum Family Fun
Great location, as close to the colosseum as detailed. Really close to public transport but you can also start your day in Rome from the apartment on foot. We were a family of 6 adults and we all had our own bedding and rooms. Shower and bathrooms were new and kitchen was very well equipped. Valerio was really friendly and super helpful, he even helped with booking taxis from airport. The apartment was really clean, internet worked well and would recommend you staying here as we would stay again. Thank you for a great stay in Roma from Natal & Eleanor. We hope to come back to Roma and eat some more amazing Italian food and see a bit more of this beautiful and ancient city.
There was very nice and great stay
Apartment is very convenient and has localization perfect. There is in small distance antiques and for communication (train, subway and bus station.
We will detain during next stay in Rome in same place also.

La citta eterna - 8 ragazzi per capodanno
Alloggio spazioso, grazioso e confortevole. Ottima posizione per raggiungere a piedi il Colosseo (5-10 min. a piedi) e i mezzi pubblici (metropolitana a 5-10 min. a piedi) fondamentali per visitare cittĂ . Personale gentilissimo e a completa disposizione. Roma Ă¨ stupenda assolutamente da vedere.
Great accomodation for 7 people
Great accomodation for a reasonable price for 7 people. Valerio was very kind with us in everything we needed and the appartment had all our needs covered (specially 2 toilets and 2 kitchens for 7 people). It is situated near most of the important sights of Rome (10 minutes walking from colosseo, for example) and at a walking distance of the main train station of Rome, Termini (15 minutes walking).
Great stay in comfrtebol apartamen neer coloseum. Exelent service.

It was great time in Rome !
We liked the apartment very much.
It's location is great ! Even quite noisy street wasn't a problem.
The service (except Wi-Fi and lack of toilet paper) was good.
Everything was prepared as we mailed before !
We highly recommend this place !
Beautiful, spacious apartment in an excellent central location.
The apartment was easy to find and Paola was waiting to give us a very useful orientation. The rooms are reasonably priced and are exactly as they appear in the photos. They are clean, well appointed and accommodated the 4 of us very comfortably.In fact it could have accommodated a much bigger group. The kitchen is fully equipped and there's a supermarket within easy walking distance on via Merulana. It is the perfect base from which to enjoy everything the Eternal City has to offer. After our short stay, Paola and Valerio organised a taxi for our departure and, as the next occupancy wasn't immediate, they put us under no pressure to check out. All together an excellent experience and highly recommended!!
Le logement correspond parfaitement Ă sa description, trĂ¨s joli, bien Ă©quipĂ©, beaucoup de charme.
Les chambres sont trĂ¨s spacieuses, appartement idĂ©al pour deux familles avec des enfants ou non.
La situation gĂ©ographique est excellente, trĂ¨s proche des grands sites historiques et du mĂ©tro.
Les commerces sont proches et le quartier est trĂ¨s calme et trĂ¨s plaisant.
Je vous le recommande.
This was the first apartment we rented in Italy. It had everything we needed. Much nicer than staying at a hotel. First day we walk to the Colosseum. Thank you for all your help. I would stay at your place every time we go to Rome...
the ideal apartment for a visit to Rome!
Stayed in this lovely apartment with 4 friends for 7 nights. Paola could not have been more helpful, recommedding restaurants, ordering taxis, etc. The location could not be better, about a three minute walk to the Colosseum and with a supermarket and bakery close-by to keep the fridge stocked up! Would definately recommend this apartment (although I would suggest requesting extra towels as we were left with only one set each for 7 nights). Otherwise...Perfect!!!

Hi Geraldine, happy to hear you have enjoyed your Roman vacation with us.
As regards towels, as a holiday apartment we normally change them every week.
Paola and Valerio
we have enjoyed our holiday in your appartment very much . Thanks a lot for this nice holidays in your appartment. Greetz from Germany .
Amazing location, great facilities and very friendly staff
I traveled here with 6 other college friends and this place was like a palace to us. It was very comfortable, and had more than enough places to sleep. We were kindly greeted at the door when we arrived and everything was explained to us. We needed a few things regarding early morning taxies and such and the staff was happy to take our calls and make the reservations for us. Last but not least the location. Amazing location, a 5 min. walk for the coliseum and a 10 min walk to the metro. We loved this place and if you are traveling with a big group you would be silly not to stay here.
We were made to feel very welcome and the apartment was very well equipped and made us feel at home. The decoration was very tasteful and suited to the eighteenth century floor which reminded us of the uniqueness of Rome. The apartment could not be better located for someone who wants to see the glory of Rome. While it is in a quiet location, it is close to the Forum, the Palatine Hill, the Colisseum and the other favourite sites.
Comfortable apartment, close to everything!
We loved the location of this apartment, which was a great deal for 9 people--my husband and our toddler, his parents, and our siblings and friends. The convenience of being able to have a kitchen for breakfast every morning, walking down to the bakery one block away for pastry, and walking to the tourist sites. Great location and very comfortable apartment!
