Lovely apartment outside of Rome city centre. I think you need to be reasonably fit to climb the five flights of stairs to the top as there is no lift. From the minute we got there Andreas dad is lovely, he can not speak much english but he showed us around the apartment and we understood how everything worked, also there is a booklet that explains how to find the resturants and supermarks. Very clean and comfortable and the outside terrace is the place to be of a night chilling with a nice bottle of red, especially after all the sightseeing. Some really reasonable priced resturants around about, la guardino is at the top of the road is very good for pizza and pasta also the chinese if you fancy a change.There a couple of supermarkets near by. We thought being out of the hustle and bustle of city centre was for us. Thanks Andrea for the very detailed directions using public transport to get to your apartment, we found it no trouble. City very accessible by no.8 tram it takes about 10/15 minutes and your right in the centre. Thanks Andrea for a lovely first time in Rome. We will return.
Very nice accommodations and not so far from city center. In fact, the tram is very affordable but we actually walked everywhere except the Vatican (took the train, very cheap). Lovely neighborhood, although it may not appear so when you first arrive. The terrace is wonderful, the great room is GREAT! The room air conditioning turned out to be a blessing as it was unseasonably hot. Very functional, laundry a plus! Bathroom shower stall small, but this is Europe! Quaint to have to climb all five flights although it was tough after a 5 mile touring day but part of huge experience! Not a club scene, but dining options abound in this no bustling off city center location! Would certainly stay here again!
Also, the owner was VERY helpful in coordinating transportation to the apartment from the airport (DO IT!) and also with transport to the cruise port (45 miles away) given a train strike... Thanks again Andrew!
I don´t need to repeat all those positive reviews of the former guests; they are true. Andrea is a most pleasent landlord, and the apartement is highly recommendable for everyone who doesn´t mind taking 110 steps closer to heaven. Andrea gives you a perfect description on how to get there from the airport, but visitors should be prepared thoroughly with information about the Roman bus network for the days following.

I can't recommend enough to stay at the Penthouse Monteverde.
It was fully equipped, great location, very clean and excellent customer service
Thanks Andrea! Thanks Bernardo!
Stayed at the Penthouse Monteverde on the 7th til the 11th. Had a fantastic time. The apartment is spacious and comfortable, just what you needed to return to after a day of walking around Rome. It had all of the amenities needed and kitchen was well stocked. The view from the terrace was fantastic, and luckily it was warm enough most days to enjoy it. Bed was very comfortable and slept really well. Having sky tv with a variety of English channels was also a plus. The tv did not work, however after calling Andrea, his dad came with a replacement within half an hour, which was great service! Andrea had no one staying in the apartment the day that we left, so he alllowed us to check out at 5, which I was not expecting and was lovely to relax on our last day.
I would recommend getting the taxi from the airport, which Andrea arranges for you for a fee of €35, it was great value for money and dropped you off right outside the front of the apartment.
Getting into central Rome was very easy too, the bus stop was a two minute walk away from the Penthouse, where we got either the number 8 bus/tram or the H. Public transport is great value for money, we purchased a 3 day ticket which could be used on any transport within Rome for €16.50 and it was definitely worth the money.
Overall, if your looking to have a fanntastic, relaxing holiday in Rome, I would recommend the Penthouse Monteverde!
