Ciao sono Laura e vi sto aspettando nella città Eterna.
We had several email exchanges with Laura dealing with different worries I had before finally settling in. She was quite helpful. The apartment is very large and has two bedrooms which my daughter appreciated since she usually has to sleep on a convertible couch in a living room. The neighborhood appeared to be very safe. The 105 bus took about 20 or 25 minutes to get to the Termini (except coming home on Sunday afternoon when the traffic was bad) and quick connections could be made to both Metro lines and what appeared to be dozens of buses. The tram line didn't seem to go all the way to the Termini because of construction so when it stopped we transferred to the 105 bus. All in all we found getting to all the sights was very easy using the 105 bus and then transferring at the Termini. Getting to places varied from 35 minutes to a bit less than an hour (the Vatican) and cost 1.50 Euros. A single ticket is used for trams, buses and the Metro (only one ride on the Metro) including transfers and is good for 100 minutes. Tickets were easily bought at a Tobacco shop near the bus stop heading toward the Termini. The apartment was much larger and cost a lot less than any of the Rome apartments I considered downtown. It provided excellent value for what we felt was the minor convenience of having to use public transportation to get to the main tourist sights. A large supermarket was maybe 200 meters from the apartment. The Wi-Fi was very good. A minor problem for us was we couldn't find a microwave, an appliance we use a lot to heat up coffee and leftovers. But we toughed it out and survived this slight inconvenience. A manual like many AirBnB apartments have would also have been nice. I definitely highly recommend Laura's apartment.
Laura is so friendly and helpful, we arrived at her apartment so late and she was there and offered us one pasta, because every market were closed, this was a good manner to start a trip in Italy !:) (thanks Laura ). So the apartment is really comfortable, clean and with easy access to public transport, close a big supermarket and the decoration is wonderful.
We had a very nice time in Laura's apartment. It has everything we needed to feel at home. In contrast to other airbnb listings, the apartment actually felt nicer in real life than in the pictures. The apartment is well connected, and Laura was all willing to help us with what we needed. Very recommended.
Laura is a friendly and welcoming host, always smiling. She gave us tips of the neighborhood and was always available for us when needed. The apartment was a bit far from the historic center (but well connected to it by tram and bus 105), which permits us to discover another Rome, less touristy and more welcoming. The apartment itself was with colors of Italy and ideal for us: clean, spacious, fully equipped kitchen, very nice sunny terrace. Thank you Laura for making this wonderful travel possible.
Very comfortable appartement, clean, quiet and spacious. Nice kitchen, living and bathroom. Two bedrooms and nice balcony. Clean towels and blankets. It has everything you need even WIFI.The bus to the center stops round the corner, it's a twenty minutes ride to Termini. The bakery, with lovely bread and coffee, is round the corner. The Carrefour on the other corner. Laura is very kind and helpfull and we love her music. The communication with Laura is very good en friendly.
