This is an interesting building, with potential, but the apartment was quite odd, basically been carved up vertically, and lacked natural light - I got a very different impression of the place from the photos, so mismatch in expectations. Since I was spending most of my day in the apartment (I'm working in Rome, at home) it wasn't right for me. I cut short my stay for those reasons. Michele was accommodating and gracious.
Apartment ideally located in the heart of Rome. A magnificent residence with an inner courtyard near Villa Borghese. The apartment is located in a residence renting several apartments. It sounds like a hotel (without food service) An low average value for money but still in the city rates. (Rome is an expensive city and we were dealing with last minutes journey) Work on the first floor has somewhat disrupted the peacefulness of the place. Apparently the previous guests left some traces and smells on the bedding we asked to change after the first night. The present service immediately responded positivly to this. We also had some difficulties in the shower with the water pressure. Attention the bathroom is small for the large size but suitable for someone normal. The cool balcony on the private courtyard is very nice.
Nous avons séjourné avec ma collègue 10 jours dans l'appartement de Michele. Et nous sommes tres contentes de ce sejour. Nous étions a Rome pour travailler. L'appartement se situe dans une résidence hotelière avec un service d'accueil 24h ce qui est très pratique car ily a toujours quelqu'un de disponible pour des renseignements, commander un taxi, une pizza ou autre. Le personnel très aimable est toujours prêt à aider. L'appartement est sur 2 etages avec le coin cuisine en bas. Un escalier en colimaçon mène a la chambre, sdb et salon qui servait de seconde chambre pour nous. Tres joliment decoré, lit tres confortable. Un petit bémol: un peu plus sombre que le laissent entendre les photos et on entend le bruit de la circulation pour ceux qui y sont sensibles. Cela ne nous a pas gêné. Sejour très agréable dans l'ensemble.
What a wonderful home base to explore and experience the beautiful city of Rome! Michele is a gracious host who met us upon our arrival and made sure everything was perfect. The apartment is in a great location. It is on the 3th floor (there is a lift) and the building is on a very nice, safe street with several restaurants and stores nearby. Furthermore, it was nice that the Romano Termini station was a short 15 minutes walk away. There were also bus and subway stops nearby. The kitchen was well equipped, the living area was very sunny, and it’s a nice place to relax after a long day of sightseeing or working. I would definitely recommend Michele's space to anyone wanting to see Roma.
We had a bad stay in Michele's flat. The flat we stayed in, was quiet small, the decoration old. The windows are small and very low, so even during a sunny day, it is quite dark. Wifi is working correctly only in the room and is not very stable. Globally quite a different look than the photos. Knowing that a part of the photos are taken outside tha apartment, in the common spaces. In fact, when we arrived, we discovered with surprise, that the apartment is located in a residence hotel with about 30 other appartements (different sizes, very similar decorations and equipments). So we went to the website of the hotel (Residence Villa Marignoli) and we discovered that the prices proposed for the apartements by the hotel (even bigger in size than the Michele's one), were between 30 and 40€ cheaper per night (Breakfast and cleaning service included), than the price we payed (without any breakfast or cleaning). That was a first time for us to be confronted to such a shady situation, the first time we were confronted with an airbnb offer so much more expensive than a hotel offer, for the same or less quality services. So my wife went to ask for explication at the reception desk of the hotel. But they were very uncomfortable with the situation and asked her to call directly Michele for explanations. So she called him and after hearing her complains about the wifi connection and the shady "price situation", he became very aggressive and rude and said that "he didn't care" and that "he would write a bad review on us" if we would complain more. My wife was quite shocked, so I called him back and spoke with him in italian. On the phone I explained to him our issues again, he offerred to refund a part of our stay to align the price per night with those proposed by the hotel. I think that overall, even with the refund, it is still not fair.
Hi Marco, thank you so much for your review. I'm very happy you wrote it because you give me the possibility to explain what happened . as I told you, in the building there're several apartments and some of these are managed as an hotel. My apartment is independent, completely renovated and bigger than others you saw on the website ( 50 sqm). I don't understand because you complain about the price because nobody called you and asked to book my apartment: You were completely free to choose another flat on airbnb if my price wasn't good for you or not on your budget but you chose my place anyway. Of course In the world you will always find a place at a lower price because everyone make the price he wants, but this doesn't mean that the service will be necessarily better. An hotel with more than 25 apartment or rooms can make better price because it has a different business policy than a private like me who owns just one apartment. Your Wife was very unpolite from the 1 second she spoke with me asking me immediately a lower price . “I don’t care” means I don’t care about the money ( just 15 euro difference) because fortunately there are more important things that money in the world and for just 15 euro I didn’t want spend several hours on the phone, therefore at the end I quoted the call with your wife and after the second phone call with you I gave a special offer with a lower price just to confirm that for me that was not the point. I really hope it will teach you for the future and next time I hope you will do a choice with more cure to avoid these kind of unkind situations. All the best Michele
