“Better than the pictures!”
Reviewed 23 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

I stayed in the Kandinsky House apartment for 4 days with my husband, my 4 years-old daughter and my sister in July 2015. We had selected it because of the location (very convenient for us as close to my relatives) and taking into account the favourable reviews, although the pictures illustrating the announcement on tripadvisor did not seem to be outstanding.
The first positive feature was during the reservation / confirmation / payment period: the owner was extremely helpful and proactive. In addition to all the necessary logistic information, he took the initiative of asking us about what we coud find useful for our little daughter in order to make our stay more confortable.
When we finally arrived at the apartment, we could confirm that our initial positive impression was correct: the owner provided us with a lot of information and left in the apartment what he called "first day kit" (fresh milk, yogurt, juice, eggs, bread, cereals, jam, butter, biscuits, water, ...).
The apartment, located on the 2nd floor (without lift) is very confortable, spacious, fully equipped and, in my opinion, much better decorated than what it looks like in the pictures.
As the weather was extremely hot in Rome (40 degrees C), 3 fans were available to cool down the air. I think that air conditioning would have been appreciated, but we did not have problems in sleeping.
I think that the apartment is great for families with children and for friends.
Nevertheless, I would not recommend it to the following categories:
- disabled travelers and older travelers, due to the absence of a lift,
- very light sleepers, due to the relatively frequent transit of ambulances to the San Camillo hospital: it should be noted however that the noise is barely audible if the windows are closed.
Overall, an extremely nice apartment, a great stay and excellent client service.

Elena, thank you very much for having found enough time to write such an extensive and nice review. I agree that this year , with the heat wave we have experienced, air conditioning would have helped. I'm considering to retrofit the apartment whit it. I'm happy that you found useful the "first day survival kit". I believe it makes the first approach to town more easy for people unfamiliar with the neighboroud (not your case...). I would really like to have again guests like you and your family. No guests before have left the apartment in such an impeccable condition. Thanks again

“More than a perfect place to stay in Rome!”

What a great place to stay in Rome!!! The apartment is spacious, very clean and so sunny, gives the traveler a homey feeling. The host is wonderfully welcoming, ready to go through all the trouble to accommodate the visitors and to make their stay an unforgettable experience. Great location of the apartment as well, a little away from the tourist masses (which in our opinion was a big plus), but on a very convenient tram and bus stops getting the visitors quickly to the center of the city. The neighborhood feels safe and it has nice restaurants and shops around. It was such a great choice renting this apartment! I would highly recommend it to everybody who wants to visit this amazing European city and expects a superb renting experience.

Teodora, many thanks for sharing your experience. It has been nice to host you and your relatives after the extensive exchange of electrons over the web. I'm also happy that you've enjoyed the stay and have been able to see a lot of the ancient Roma. Finally many thanks for having left the apartment in impeccable conditions. Hope to see you again.

“Great, spacious, fully-equipped apartment. Perfect to kick-back after a day in busy Rome!”
Reviewed 19 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

A colleague and I stayed in this lovely apartment for a week whilst attending a conference in Rome - half-holiday half business! This apartment was perfect for our needs. Many apartments do not live up to their pictures, but this was certainly the exception and was very tidy, spacious and well-equipped.

The apartment owner, Federico is a brilliant guy who was very accommodating from the moment the apartment was booked. He was in touch by email in advance of our travels and helped us organise our transfers from Fiumicino airport via Airport Shuttle (I'd highly recommenced the Airport shuttle service if you're coming in vis FCO - be careful with airport taxis as a friend got overcharged!). Upon arrival, Federico met us at the apartment and gave us a full tour and lots of information about where to go and how to use the public transport. He even had a 'survival pack' for us ready for our first morning (bread, juice, eggs, etc.) which was very kind and very well received!

The apartment is situated in a quieter area of Rome which was very much welcome after the hustle and bustle of being around the cities central areas. It is quite close to a busy hospital but that wasn't an issue. There is a tram line adjacent to the apartment on the main road coming down the hill - but unfortunately it only re-opened after repairs on our last day! Despite this, there was easy access to bus routes right next to the apartment, getting us to where we needed to go. It took us roughly 35-40mins to cross town to the Sapienza University using the bus and metro - and this was in traffic so very good. Public transport is €1.50 for 100mins travel so we basically used 2 per day usually (but please note you need to get these tickets in advance so buy a few at a time from the Tobacconist shops (or at the stations)).

All-in-all this was a great choice, and if you're looking for somewhere nice to stay in Rome look no further. I will certainly be looking to stay here again on my next visit!

Pro tip: If you want to see a good example of an ancient Roman town visit the ancient Roman port of Ostia Antica - we took a 25 min train from Rome (using our standard transport ticket) from Ostiense which is part of the Piramide Metro station. A five minute walk from the Ostia Antica station is a wonderful (and surprisingly quiet) well preserved Roman port city. We did this in lieu of visiting Pompeii and were not disappointed!

Liked best: The apartment owner made everything so simple, with lots of information, helping to organise transfers and the first morning survival pack. This really helped us to find our feet on arrival!
Liked least: It was quite warm in the evening, fans did the trick for the most part.

Many, many thanks for your review . It has been a pleasure hosting this couple of fellow engineers, full of enthusiasm for their conference at the Sapienza University and for the opportunity to visit modern and ancient Roma. Communications before and during their stay were excellent. I really hope to host them again in the future.

“Great Flat to relax in after a day of Touring”
Reviewed 6 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

people found this review helpful

My family and I rented this flat for several days while we were in Rome. The flat is just a bit out of the center of Rome but only by a mile (1.4KM) or so. I can almost promise you that after a day of touring in Rome you will be so happy that it is. If you have never been to Rome it packed, busy and chaotic almost every where you go. The flat is really in a great location there are locally owned shops all around from bars, pizza places, stores and grocery stores in all directions.

There is plenty of room for everyone and the flat is super clean and safe. The owner was in contact by e-mial and phone before and during our trip to ensure all was well and if we needed anything. Most rentals I have rented no one even shows up to greet you or it some person in a hurry and that is the last thing I want after time on a plane or train. Also the owner was very nice and stocked the kitchen with food our first morning so we did not have to rush to the store. He even asked several time if we wanted anything special "food" he could stock for us before our arrival.

As for getting around or in Rome center it is super easy. There are tram and buses that pass stops that are just outside the flat. Just hope on the H bus or the 8 tram and ride it to the transportation hub in the center of Rome and you can hope on trains, other buses to anyplace. We found this the best way navigate the transit system. Also the owner of the flat will go over maps, the public transit system and the area with you in great detail once you arrive. He even set our travel to and from the airport. I can not say enough how very happy and please we were.

The pictures provided for this flat are spot on. So happy about this since it is hard to really tell in most of these rental places. The only thing is there is a hospital just down the road and you can hear the emergency vehicles during the day and at night around bed time they seem to just stop. Not sure if they stop running or people do not get hurt after dark. LOL
I would stay here time and time again with no thoughts of even looking for anyplace else. If you are planing a trip to Rome then you owe it to yourself to rent this flat. If you choose a hotel in the city Center good luck.

Wow ! What a nice review ! Many many thanks. I really believe that when you are renting a place you also need to get assistance. I try hard to be of assistance to our guests and to make sure they find the information and help needed when you are in a foreign place. As far as the hospital, I've tried to relocate it ... unfortunately without success. Many thanks again. Hope to see the same group of nice ladies again.

The flat was really nice. Extremely clean, well stocked kitchen, spacious flat. Great mattresses for a good sleep and shutters on the window which blocked the noise, and was a great black out. Everything was well maintained and looked after. The owner left food for us to start our stay which was so generous.
Location ideal with restaurants nearby, small supermarket and other small store shops. Tram 2 minutes walk which took 20minutes to Rome centre. Good area.
The owner was fab with lots of information about the surrounding area and helpful tips. He could not have been more helpful and really wanted to make sure we enjoyed our stay. Met us at the flat when we arrived and gave us the keys.
Left information in the flat for us to look over too. Even met us the morning we were leaving at 5.45am and booked our taxi. I could not commend him enough. Thank you so much Frederico for a lovely stay and I would recommend this accommodation to everyone.
Thanks again.
