“Felt at home”

It's taken me awhile to write this review - sorry!!

This place was perfect. It's on a beautiful block with a great restaurant just below. The couple were warm and welcoming. They were available for any questions and were helpful with giving tips on how to get around. They even gave us maps and recommendations.

The apartment is very comfortable with all necessities provided. Most importantly, we felt at home. The trolley is merely steps away and is only 4 stops from the main attractions or a nice walk (we did so several times).

A cab was set up to take us to and from the airport. Very convenient. Everything was amazing and Rome.... Rome is the best place on earth.

“Convenient, attractive, spacious and (best of all) in Rome”
Reviewed 1 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

I know the owners of this property keenly value their Tripadvisor rating, and rightly so. It is a truly exceptional holiday rental.
We availed of the airport pick-up (€55), a convenience for us because one of us is 78 years old and had heavy luggage. This permitted us an early observation of characteristic Roman behaviour: (1) constantly being on a mobile phone while (2) driving insanely. But for more typically light-baggaged city-breakers on a budget, the car is something of an extravagance.
Really, reading descriptions of 'get bus/train to metro station, take subway, change to tram' makes this place sound much less handy to reach than it is. It is convenient. Very. Walking around the main attractions of Rome is not impossible from any reasonably central location, but it's exhausting: insofar as this place encourages you to get familiar with public transport (and the Roman tradition of treating buses and trams as free services), it's a great help for anyone planning to spend a few days here. The tram connection to the glorious Piazza del Popolo and Villa Borghese is so simple and quick that you might as well say that's where you're staying when you stay in Piccola Londra.
Just as the directions don't do justice to the location, the pics don't do justice to the apartment. The roomy bedrooms are indeed bigger than the common spaces but we had dinner in the apartment a couple of times, and two or three of us could work simultaneously in the kitchen, while the hall table unfolded to seat five people comfortably in the entrance area. (There were four of us staying, but we had a local guest for dinner; there is a fold-up bed in the apartment to sleep a fifth but we didn't avail of it.)
Okay, so there was no sharp knife in the kitchen. I see this complaint so often about rentals online that I think there is either a crime wave of touristic knife-theft or owners are reducing their insurance risk. Either way, we managed.
The local area is quiet by Roman standards but those are low standards. A bit posh too for my taste (there's a shop across the road called Dog & Design), and the cute nearby mews explains the 'Londra' connection. The small supermarket a minute away from the apartment is merely okay but keeps long hours, even opening on Sunday, a Roman rarity.
The only thing I could really say against this place is that it is so clean, attractive and comfortable that it was tempting to spend too much time there not exploring the incredible city of Rome. At these prices that is truly extraordinary.

“We felt right at home in Rome! Excellent value too!”
Reviewed 18 October 2013 for a stay in June 2013

First of all, I'd like to apologise for how long it took for me to post up this review!

Our family of four, with two boys both under ten, stayed for four nights at this cozy apartment in mid-June 2013. The location, as noted by many, is not near the major attractions of Rome, but for us, this was a great choice as we wanted a less touristy neighbourhood in which to enjoy Rome. Plus, we were driving into the city, and wanted a place where we could park our rental car easily for the next few days. Piccolo Londra fit the bill.

The apartment was perfect - the master bedroom was big, airy and had a HUGE wardrobe, the kids' room had two single beds with a night stand each (important for the boys, for they could put their toy, night torch and bedtime reading right next to them and "feel like it's home!"). The kitchenette is well equipped - our hosts had ensured that the basics (coffee, tea, hot chocolate for the boys, salt, oil, pepper, butter, milk etc) were provided, along with familiar (ikea) utensil and cutlery. We enjoyed preparing our ham and cheese boards for leisurely breakfasts in the apartment daily.

As noted by many fellow reviewers, the tram stop is near the apartment, and it is only a short ride to the Flaminio Square (and Borghese Gardens). The corner supermarket has a good deli selection, the pizzarie round the corner (and recommended by the host) does very decent pizzas and had quaffable wines by the carafe.

To us though, the hosts - Paola and Georgio - were the true gems. Even when we were enquiring about the apartment, Paola stood out amongst the owners / managers we contacted - she was responsive, polite, understanding. They knew we were driving to the apartment, and Georgio had "reserved" a parking lot right at the side entrance to the block for us. We left and took with us the courtesy mobile phone accidentally, and there were no harsh words, only understanding from the couple. As my son observed - it's more important to have kind, gracious hosts who truly you welcome you, than an over-the-top-beautifully-furnished apartment with unkind people to deal with - so to Paola and Georgio once again, thank you for a great stay! (We hope the phone made it back to you - and do keep us updated on your Tuscany project!!)

Liked best: The owners of the apartment were so gracious, and very kind.
Liked least: It was a tad out of the way - so if you want to stay right in the midst of action, this may not fantastic. For us, with the kids, having a quiet corner of Rome to return to each day was wonderful.

“Fabulous apartment, excellent location!”

We were two adults and two pre-teens. First off, we must say that the owners of the apartment were very warm and extremely helpful. We felt as if we were greeted by friends lending us their flat. Within the first hour, we had all the information on getting around in the neighbourhood and how to go about visiting the city.

The apartment itself was very beautiful with high ceilings and very tasteful decoration. The bookshelf/wall that separates the entrance from the living room was fantastic and gave a sense of being at home. The kitchen was very useful and we managed to have great home made meals during our stay.

The location of the apartment was ideal, only a few dozen feet away from the trolley to go to the metro station. It only took 10 minutes to reach Piazza del Popolo where the Flaminia station is.

The grocery store was just across the street and it was very convenient to buy food and other stuff. There was a great pizzeria nearby (Pizza Vignola) and a few other places where the food was delicious.

Overall, we had a blast staying there and we will definitely look it up when we will return to Rome one day.

“Comfortable and a great location”
Reviewed 16 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

My husband, daughter and I stayed at Piccola Londra for 6 nights and it was extremely comfortable and convenient, in a great location. Paola had organized a pick up for us from the airport which is a big bonus. She and her daughter Francesca, two lovely ladies, warmly welcomed us and met us on arrival and showed us through the apartment. They speak very good English and explained where everything is kept in the apartment and had a mobile phone, lap top and maps available for our use. They also explained what is in our area and where to get tickets for the local No:2 trolley (tram). The trolley stop is a two minute walk down the road and takes you directly to the Piazza del Popolo area which can link you to the Flaminio metro station or you can walk from there to discover a lot of Rome, including the Spanish steps. It's fun walking the streets and there's always something wonderful to see in Rome. The nice touch was that Paola and Francesca left us fresh bread and milk with butter and jam in the fridge. There is a supermarket opposite the apartment and you can see it from the kitchen window. Piccola Londra is on the 3rd floor and has a small elevator for your luggage if you need it. It's very clean and comfortable with free wi-fi/internet access. There are two large bedrooms with a very comfortable queen bed in one and two single beds in the other. Both rooms have quiet air conditioning. There is a large wardrobe to hang your clothes, a washer/dryer, iron & ironing board and all amenities needed. The kitchenette has cooking equipment, a gas cook top, fridge and a microwave. There are local restaurants if don't want to cook. The bathroom is modern and exceptionally clean. The apartment is situated in a quieter area of Rome with the occasional noise of the trolley and sometimes the social gathering of people down below, but the windows and the shutters seem to cut out any noise. We enjoyed leaving the windows open to welcome the breeze and fresh air and felt very secure. Piccola Londra is like a small home away from home and we missed our little home once we continued our travelling. Thank you to Paola and Francesca for your lovely hospitality.
