“Absolute Perfection and the perfect Hosts”
Reviewed 18 March 2012 for a stay in March 2012

For our first trip to Rome, we had high expectations in the type of apartment we wanted. It had to be in a good position, of aesthetic appeal and roomy enough.

We spent WEEKS looking for the right apartment, and we found it in Alex's House.

The reviews were excellent, so we went with high hopes.

How was the reality? ABSOLUTELY PERFECT!!!

The communications from our initial enquiry to our booking were handled promptly and meticulously by Allessandra and Marco. They even arranged for an airport to door transport via private car... at this point let me recommend Carlo! Brilliant, waiting for us when we arrived at the airport, and whisked us straight to Alex's House where Alessandra awaited us.

She's a lovely person, helpful in the extreme, showed us around the apartment, and had provided some lovely nibbles, soft drinks and wine...plus ample supplies for the next 2-3 days breakfast.

The apartment is fabulous, roomy, well decorated, immaculately clean and full equipped.
EVERYTHING was provided, from internet to a multi channel TV ( Channels 6 and 26 often give English language programmes ! ). All bathroom provisions were there, from toothpaste to shampoo to shower gel!... Even a bottle of baby Calpol! In all honesty, you could travel to Alex's House having forgot your bathroom bits and pieces and you'd be catered for!

The apartment was literally 20 metres from several good bus services, although we chose to use the Metro ( 7-8 minutes walk ) since it stopped at all the major sights.

The only regret we have is having to leave Alex's House. Would we recommend it??? Let's put it this way... we're back home for only 4 days and are already making plans to re-visit Rome and book Alex's House. 10/10 is , if anything, under-rating this marvellous apartment and its equally delightful hosts. Just don't book it for March next year... we want it then!!!!

Alessandra, thank you SO MUCH for having us as your guests, we'll be in touch to arrange another stay next year. Grazie Mille!!!

“The Reviews were Right”

person found this review helpful

We had a wonderful time staying here for 11 nights. The reviews we read regarding Alessandro's hospitality and helpfulness were correct. Rather than repeat the praise I will try to add some helpful suggestions. We were two adult couples. Although the metro stops are fairly close, we found the frequent buses to be the best way to travel most of the time. Also the Metro A line is closing at 9:00pm until April 2012 so you will need the buses at night. If you have a smartphone or ipad, go to the ATAC webside and download the PDF of Rome center and Rome city so you have it with you. A maximum of two buses, or one bus and the metro, or a 10 minute walk and the metro will get you from the apartment to anywhere you want in the city in 30 minutes or less. Several buses will get you to the Vatican or nearest metro in 5 minutes. We found it impossible to get the Roma pass so we bought 7 day or 3 day passes.

We have visited Rome before and always debate between somewhere in the middle of the city (convenient but noisier and less value), and staying further out like Alex's house. I am very glad we picked Alex's house.

“Location, Location, Location!!!”
Reviewed 24 August 2011 for a stay in August 2011

Stayed at Alessandra's apartment for my son's wedding in Rome. After a delayed flight from London Heathrow we finally arrived at Alex's apartment to find the lovely and very helpful owner, Alessandra waiting to greet us. Upon our arrival we found that Alessandra had already stocked the cupboards and fridge with milk, coffee, tea, bread and other essentials... so not having to go out immediately to find a local shop or supermarket after a long journey was a god send!!! Alessandra then spent the next hour detailing us with the do's and dont's of Rome! Which places to see, what bus to get, where to eat... her help and knowledge was greatly appreciated!
The apartment itself was large, airey and immensely clean and most importantly AIR CONDITIONED which in August in Rome is a MUST!!!
The 2 bedrooms were large, clean and with adequete storage space. The living room/dining room was also very spacious with modern furnishings and a very 'homely feel'
Our stay was perfect, the apartment is located directly outside a major bus route (a bus into the centre of Rome every 7min til midnight) was a god send when you have elderly family travelling with you. Andhaving the Vatican within 10 mins walk was amazing!
We are already planning a return trip to Rome early next year, and without doubt be contacting Alessandra to see if the apartment is free!!!

NOTE: The apartment also has free secure internet access, which is a great help for booking trips and planning routes!
