Lovely place in the center of Rome! From beginning to end, pure class!
Communication with Jean Louis upon booking was good and very helpful. Felt he was very accommodating and answered any questions we had prior to arrival. Casa Virgilio is a 10min walk from Termini station, or even closer, if you walk from Cavour metro station. Slight hill coming up from Cavour, but nothing major. Road Casa Virgilio on is a residential area and is very quiet and hardly any traffic noise can be heard from the room. Jean Louis was there to greet us upon arrival and was very gracious and kind. He had kindly made a reservation at a local restaurant for us and provided us with a map of the area, all of 5min walk.
Our room was lovely. Very spacious and bed very comfortable, which is very important to any traveller. There was heating and air conditioning should you need it, but we were comfortable as we were. Lots of books to admire and read on Rome and other countries should you need them, comfortable reading areas in a tranquil setting. TV is also available, as well as a docking station to plug your phone into for music. We were lucky enough to have this amazing kitchen/dining area that had a garden within it. Was very nice just to sit there in the mornings having breafkast and what breakfasts!! Jean Louis totally spoilt us with combos of fruit and cheese, and yummy home made cakes, not to mention the amazing creme caramel!! Nespresso machine in the kitchen along with bread, eggs, milk and yogurts, every day all this was topped up! We couldn't believe it, but totally appreciated it!
Bathroom was adequate for our needs and there was soap/shower gel to use, as well as towels. The only small issue we had was drying towels whilst we were there, as like I said no heating was on, as we didn't need it, but Jean Louis provided us with horse racks to put our towels on so they could dry throughout the day, worked a treat!
All in all, Jean Louis is a perfect gentleman and host and we very much enjoyed meeting him and felt totally spoilt with the oasis in the city we had found and which he created. I would certainly come back to Casa Viriglio again!
This is a great location with easy walks to many popular Rome sites and the Metro line. Jean Louis was very kind, friendly, and helpful. I would highly recommend Casa Virgilio in Monti.
This was a fantastic find.
The previous reviews were the reason we chose it because everyone said how helpful Jean-louis was and although we did not meet in person because he was out of the country, he ensured we had all the information we required and kept in contact throughout our stay.
The apartment had everything you needed and the lovely Odette greeted us and ensured we settled in.
We were provided with a daily continental breakfast, which was delicious and set us up for the day.
There are plenty of supermarkets and cafes close by and everything is within walking distance, apart from the Vatican.
We did a day on the hop on bus, which helped to orientate us to the city.
Rome is a beautiful city, holding so much history and beautiful monuments.
The flat is conveniently located near to Cavour underground station, the bus terminus at the railway station and a taxi rank at Santa Maria Maggiore. Rome is not big tho' and if you are fit you can walk to many of the attractions. The Colosseum is close by, so we were able to do a proper tour and then go back a few times to take in the atmosphere. The flat is in the Monti area but on a quiet side street - away from the late-night bustle of cafes and bars The small courtyard and adjacent conservatoire style living room is a lovely feature as you have an outside and semi-outside place to relax surrounded by greenery. I was staying with my elderly mum so the fact that the flat is on the ground level, with no steps was very helpful. The owner Jean Louis was very helpful with directions, suggestions of places to eat and provided a lovely breakfast. Don't miss the church of Santa Prassede, which is very close by. It's on a smaller scale to some of the other churches you will visit in Rome, but this made it feel more intimate and 'real' - and the mosaics were beautiful.
We had a wonderful stay in Rome. The location was perfect with everything in walking distance. Safe area with plenty of great restaurants, stores, historical sites and just a short walk to the train station. The owners were exceptional! Very welcoming and went above and beyond to help us have a great vacation. The apartments were very clean, comfortable and each morning we had a terrific breakfast waiting for us. We highly recommend this rental to everyone wanting to enjoy time in the eternal city. It was perfect!
