“A GREAT PLACE TO STAY!”
Reviewed 25 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

I strongly suggest if you'd like to stay in a spacious apartment near the ancient center of Rome that you stay here. This is an excellent accommodation hosted by a most gracious man.

THE MAN: Jean Louis is a very solicitous host. He sincerely wants you to really enjoy your time in what he calls his "lodge" and in his city. He's quite helpful without being intrusive. He also provides a fine breakfast, including homemade cakes and muffins, at no extra charge.

THE LODGE: Your digs are on the street floor, no stairs. The apartment is long and deep consisting of three nicely appointed rooms in addition to the kitchen, the bathroom, and the bedroom nook. There is also a small courtyard. It's all very comfortable, quiet, with air conditioning and wifi, and is completely secure. The front door is made of steel. A miscreant would have to blow the place up to get in.

THE AREA: Monti is a dynamic, central neighborhood. The area is more youthful, a bit faster paced, bit edgier and grittier than Rome's more genteel neighborhoods. It is, however, not at all threatening or ominous. There are nice small shops and good places to eat. Three excellent restaurants include Sciue Sciue for a delicious, yet not expensive, dinner; Zia Rosetta for fabulous sandwiches and salads; and Grazie a Dio e Venerdi for outstanding pizza and large salads.

THE BEST: Jean Louis is an endearing man and Casa Virgilio in Monti provides exceptional value. This is a great place to stay.

Wonderful hospitality in the very centre of Rome, less than ten minutes walk to major attractions, Metro station less than 10 minutes away, lovely quite and safe apartment, and Jean Louis and Laura could not have made the holiday more enjoyable. Jean Louis provided fantastic information, maps etc to make the holiday trouble free, and wonderful breakfasts each morning. Thank you Jean Louis and Laura.

Jean Louis and Laura were the perfect hosts.They provided a splendid breakfast every day - such a bonus - and sent us off with maps, tips and recommendations of places to visit. The apartment itself was beautifully appointed, as well as quiet and relaxing. This is the sort of place I want to come back to again and again.

We spent 7 nights here this month and it was fantastic! Jean Louis and his wife Laura make you feel like family. The apartment is spacious, comfortable and in an excellent location with a 7 minute walk to the Colosseum. We were served Italian breakfast each morning with Jean Louis eager to suggest things to do and see while in Rome. I would highly recommend to all family and friends and when I do return to Rome, I will definitely be returning to Casa Virgilio! Thank you again Jean Louis and Laura!
