Great apartment and a terrific location.  Wish we would have had longer to stay and enjoy the terrace.  If we return to Rome again, I would stay here again.  Thank you.

I'm so pleased our family of five decided to stay in this apartment in Rome. The location was excellent and my dad was thrilled to be right near the Colosseum. The apartment itself was so spacious and well-equipped. It consists of a living area and kitchen, two main bedrooms, both with en-suite - one of which is in a granny flat beside the wonderful outdoor deck - and another area which features a bathroom and upstairs bedroom with enough beds for four (two of which were mainly only suitable for children). Everything we needed was within reach and Federico and his staff were accommodating to all our needs. If looking for somewhere to eat we really enjoyed Ristorante Al Gladiatore by the Colosseum. It was a little expensive but easily the best food we had in Italy. A wonderful stay - thank you!

Wonderful apartment, clean, great location in Rome, Rada was wonderful and always ready to help if needed. This was our second time renting this apartment and if ever we head back to Rome ...for a third visit, we will be be look at staying here again..if possible! Thank you again..it was wonderful!

This spacious apartment in Rome is well situated on a quiet street close to the Colosseum. It was handy to go home at lunch time to escape the crowds and heat in a cool quiet air-conditioned space. We were 6 but it can easily sleep 8. Everything we needed was there including dishes, wifi, lovely garden retreat terrace, even umbrellas and a cork screw. Lots of delicious reasonable restaurants and markets close by and beds and pillows very comfortable.
A real gem!

We stayed at this apartment on Via Capo d' Africa in the fall of 2010. We were 6 adults, and it was perfect for us.
The rooms are large and the beds are very comfy.
The kitchen area is small but has everything that you need to make a meal and every thing is very clean, the terrace area is such a nice place to have a meal and or a glass of wine.
The area surrounding the apartment is very nice.
You are very close to the subway, bars, restaurants and grocery store and of course the Colosseo,The Forum,The Hill of the Seven Kings...it is a wonderful area to live in while you are visiting Roma.
We are now planning a trip back to Rome in 2013 and are hoping to be able to book the apartment again!
The owner is very kind and helpful.
All in all a wonderful place to stay.
ArrivederLa Roma.. see you soon!

Très bel appartement extrêmement bien situé près du Colisée. Notre famille de 7 a particulièrement apprécié les chambres grandes et confortables, et surtout la terrasse, très agréable en été.

The apartment exceeded our expectations. The location was wonderful, and it was clean and spacious. The two bathrooms really helped us get ready in the mornings. Federico was extremely helpful in getting us settled. I'm typically hard to please, but we found our accommodations to be wonderful and we'd definitely recommend it to friends or family. We were a group of 7 and it was wonderful to be able to relax together in the evenings after a long day of sightseeing.

Wir hatten eine tolle Zeit in der Via Capo d'Africa 50. Das Appartment hält, was es im Internet verspricht: Es war sehr sauber und bot der gesamten Familie (2 Erwachsene, 3 Kinder: 10/15/17 und zwei Großeltern) viel Platz und Komfort. Die Einrichtung war sehr geschmackvoll, und gemütlich - ein Appartment zum Wohlfühlen! Auch die Lage war perfekt, der Empfang und die Betreuung sehr nett (grazie Frederico!).

Wir waren mit 4 Erwachsenen und 3 Jugendlichen in der Wohnung und hatten alle genügend Platz und Rückzugsmöglichkeiten. Mit Geschirrspülmaschine UND Waschmaschine perfekt ausgestattet. Nur wenige MInuten zum Collosseum, Bäcker, Supermarkt und Metro. Gute Restaurants und Kneipen direkt um die Ecke. Sehr sympathische Vermieter, die sich sofort um alles kümmern. Die Terrasse ist ein idyllischer und ruhiger Ort - sogar MItte Oktober. Wir würden jederzeit diese Wohnung wieder mieten!!

Excellent apartment! What a wonderful way to enjoy Rome and end the day in this characteristic air-conditioned apartment. The terrace was an excellent bonus! We were 6 adults and 5 young children and had plenty of space for all. It is so close to the sites that we were able to come back during the hottest parts of the day with the children if needed and not feel like we were taking too much time travelling about. This apartment made the holiday! Would definitely recommend it and would love to stay here again if coming back to Rome! Thank you!
Shiflett from United States of America

We did not stay in the Via Capo D'Africa apartment as the owner switched us to an apartment on S.S. Quattro. I think that he could have handled the switch better - he was not forthright about the reason he made the switch as first and when called back, he explained his actions better. Overall the apartment that we ended up staying in was very nice in the end and we enjoyed our time in Rome. I just felt there should have been a bit more honesty about what he wanted to do initially.
Olson from United States of America

Wonderful! Wonderful! Wonderful! We had a great time in Rome and this apt was part of the reason. Very spacious and cute. We had 8 people in our party and there were plenty of room for everyone. Thanks for a great memory of Rome! Would rent again when coming back to Rome.

we thought it was a very good **** apartment.
To make it 5* it would need improvements to the kitchen which would be better with more built in cupboards and work surface.The table is too big in such a small area.
Other suggestions are a Dishwasher and a CD player.
The balcony is very agreeable and even better in warmer weather and the bedroom beyond it a very pleasant quiet spot for any family who had children with them.
We had a very pleasant stay..thank you very much

Nous avons été très satisfaits de notre séjour.L'appartement est superbe, confortable, décoré avec beaucoup de gout., très bien situé ,proche du Colisée et des transports en commun .Grace à vous notre séjour à Rome, en famille a été parfait.Grazie , grazie.
Jackson from Canada

We shared the apartment with 2 other couples (6 people in total) and we were very pleased with the accommodation. The apartment is well located on a side street, very close to the Colosseum. The apartment was very clean throughout, and the bathrooms have been recently renovated and were very functional. The bedrooms and bedding were all very comfortable, although one of the bedrooms was somewhat noisy (the other two were very quiet). The kitchen, while small, was very well equipped and contained everything required for a short stay. The garden terrace off the kitchen was a particularly nice feature. Our stay was most enjoyable and we would definitely recommend this apartment to others.
Holz-peter from Germany

We enjoyed staying at Frederico's apartment. Central location, easy shopping, good restaurants.
Everything as advertised, good service, no problems at all. We'll book there again! Thank you!
Leroux from Canada

While we were a little surprised by the set up in this apartment (extremely small kitchen and not-so-large living/dining room either), it still was an excellent choice for us because of the terrace, where we spent all our time. For people used to walking, this apartment allows you to visit everything without ever using public transportation. The apartment is well equipped and suggestions from prior rentors help in choosing restaurants and finding your bearings - read them ! The mattress in the front bedroom could use a refresher. Overall, given that the weather was very nice during the week we were in Rome (in September), we totally enjoyed this apartment.
Courroy from France
5 of 5
Génial !! Nous étions 8 copines, et nous aurions pu en amener encore 4 sans être trop serrées ! L'appartement est très bien situé, à 5 mn du colisée, du métro, et des arrêts de bus. Mais il est surtout magnifique ! la déco est soignée, il y a plein de petits détails agréables (séches cheveux, guides touristiques dans plusieurs langues à disposition...), et la terrasse est très très agréable, surtout en plein mois d'août !
Barklamb from United Kingdom

The apartement is in a nice, safe neighbourhood and superbly located for the Roman sites. It has heaps of character. The A/C was a blessing after a sweltering week in Tuscany. The bedrooms are spacious, but the beds in the front and annex rooms could do with being replaced. All in all, though, an excellent apartment.
Cochran from United States of America

What an extraordinary property. Well beyond expectations and perfectly located. Paola and Federico were committed to making our stay comfortable and they were available at a moment's notice. We would absolutely stay there again!

l'appartement n'est pas mal, mais nous avons eu un probleme avec le propriétaire. En effet il devait nous renvoyer de l'argent que nous avions oublié dans l'appartement, or nous n'avons jamais reçu cet argent, je trouve ça très malhonête de la part du propriètaire.Réponse du propriétaire: le propriétaire a gardé l'argent laissé dans l'appartement pour un remboursement partial pour domages fait à l'armoire dans la chambre jaune.

The apartment suited us perfectly. For us it was excellent with no luxury, but that we didn´t seek for. It is cosy, clean and tidy, well equipped and close to Colosseo, Foro Romano and the metro. It felt good to get "home" after a day of experiencing Rome. We were three families visiting, consisting of 4 adults, 4 teenagers and one 12 year old and we were all more than content. Thank you!

What a pleasure to stay in such a lovely apartment! It was clean, roomy & convenient. You will really feel comfortable and "at home" when you stay here! Paola & Federico were such lovely and gracious hosts who truly went out of their way to help us and make our time in Rome happy & memorable. HIGHLY recommended!

The perfect location for our Rome vacation. The apartment is huge, the description doesn't do it justice. You could easily sleep 10 people; we had 4 adults and could not have been more comfortable. The neighborhood is great. Lots of wonderful places to eat, I highley recommend Hostaria Isidoro. Our hosts were very nice, even brought us a home-made pie on our first day. When we return to Rome it will be to this apartment.

The apartment was better than expected. We were a family of five plus two grandpartents. The outdoor terrace is charming. The extra bedroom across the terrace gave the grandparents extra privacy. Mrs. Funari-Pace was a wonderful help. We will definately look here first when we visit Rome again.
