Fantastic location! Loved the quiet place to sleep after a long day sightseeing. I would stay there again.

Perfect place to stay in rome and savor the less touristy areas and enjoy the way the locals live. This area would be the best location in rome. Apt was great. As described, very liveable. And a perfect location.

This is a truly lovely apartment in a great location for accessing all of the major tourist sights in Rome and the best areas for atmospheric evening meals and people watching. Initially, we were slightly concerned about the 'back street' entrance and personal safety when out and about at night but we soon realised that the nearby streets were constantly alive with locals and visitors and this contributed to a very secure environment. The owner, Francesca, was extremely helpful both before and during our stay and her apartment manager, Rosie, was on hand to greet us on arrival and help us to settle in. This apartment could best be described as 'cosy' but is nicely furnished and well equipped. The stairs to the bedroom area are quite steep (and narrow) and might be difficult for some guests and the headroom was low in places but - overall - we would certainly recommend this apartment to anyone visiting Rome for a short break,

We always stay in apartments when we visit Rome but as this trip was a bit of a last-minute decision, our usual apartment was booked so I found this one and I'm so pleased I did. It's really central, 3 mins walk to Campo de Fiori. It's quiet,clean and secure and the apartment is equipped with everything you'd need for a short stay. Only minor downside is that the apartment is a little dark. Still, it wasn't too much of a problem as we were out most of the time. Check in and out was hassle-free. Francesca kindly allowed us to leave our luggage in the apartment on checkout day as our flight wasn't until late and her next guests weren't arriving until the following day. It was a real help so thank you, Francesca. I would highly recommend Apartment Monserrato and we'll definitely stay here again.

A spacious and comfortable apartment, the perfect place to come back to after a long day exploring the wonderful city of Rome and the perfect place to set out again in search of bustling nightlife and culinary delights. Francesca and Rosie made our stay so easy and enjoyable, the building itself charming. It will leave you feeling like a true Roman citizen, even if only for a while- we hope to return!

Great little apartment in a central position, enjoyed catching up on a few movies in the flat provided by owner Communication is the only negative with no wi-fi and poor mobile reception from our provider in this location

Party type: Family Group     Visiting from: Netherlands    Review date: September 2013    

My sister and I loved the apartment and it's location, a home away from home. The welcoming touch of a bottle of wine and a plate with fruit was very much appreciated. The apartment is very clean and very funchtional. We fully recommend this apartment to anyone, who would be spending holiday time in Rome. All the famous sights are in walking distance.

Party type: Older Couple     Visiting from: United Kingdom    Review date: August 2013    

We would highly recommend staying at this apartment, Rosie was there to meet us on our arrival with a welcoming bottle of wine and gave us some useful information about the area. The apartment itself was extremely clean and well kept with basic provisions provided. The location of the apartment was excellent, an easy walking distance from all the major tourist attractions, and a two minute stroll from the beautiful Campo De Fiori which was perfect for evening meals/ drinks. We would thoroughly recommend staying here.

a very nice apartment in a perfect location.

Party type: Family Group     Visiting from: United Kingdom    Review date: August 2013    

The apartment was a nice setting for relaxing after touring Rome in the heat and the modern open plan layout complemented the 500 year old building. Location was great with me and my daughter walking to all the sights, it was a delight to stroll back to every night. The owner Francesca was a perfect host both before, supplying arrival details, and during the holiday, being available to sort out any problem, like not remembering how the door lock worked ! It all helped make our first trip to Rome a very enjoyable experience.

Party type: Young Couple     Visiting from: USA    Review date: June 2013    

.. Such a great apartment! The contemporary, well kept interior in a 500 year old building had its amenities accurately described on the web site. The unit worked very effectively and comfortably for 3 adults. The Campo de' Fiori location was ideal with its ambiance, activity, restaurants, and walking distance to historical sites as the Colosseum, St. Peter's, Trevi, Pantheon... Francesca, the delightful owner, was very personable and followed through effectively with changes, such as adding a 3rd adult after the original booking. After booking, she emailed details of the area from transportation suggestions from the airport to taxi routes, restaurant recs, and amenities of the area. My comments are all positive. Francesca and her wonderful apartment enhanced our stay in Rome!

Party type: Mixed Group     Visiting from: France    Review date: June 2013    

Our short stay in Rome was lovely, and the location of the apartment is perfect. A short walk from most of the key sites and easy to find once you get your Roman bearings! Nice and close to public transport too. Although it is a small apartment is it feels very spacious due to good design and suited us as independent travellers just as easily as it would suit a family or a couple. Francesa and Rosie were both extremely welcoming and helpful with our delayed arrival and request for a late checkout - faultless service from the hosts!

Party type: Mixed Group     Visiting from: United States    Review date: May 2013    

I don't know where to start with. We loved the Apartment Monserrato and its location, walking distance to everything you want to see. This is a heart of Rome, and living in this 500-years old building for just a few days gives you an unforgettable experience of being a part of this beautiful city. The owner, Francesca, welcomed us with a bottle of wine and a plate of fruits, and she was very helpful throughout our stay. There was only one problem with garbage, but she said not to wary and that she would take care of it. People in the neighborhood were very friendly, and the local supermarket, "Despar", gives you a discount on your groceries ( offerta) when you ask for it. The apartment was very clean and the kitchen well equipped for making simple meals. We wish that we could stay there longer. If you have a limited budget and still want to fully enjoy Rome and its people, then consider this apartment for your vacation. There is not much of a daylight inside, but who cares, the apartment is quiet and unique. We would be happy to stay there again, and we are highly recommend it.

Apartment Monserrato is the perfect apartment to explore Rome. My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights in May 2013 on our first trip to Italy. Our hostess, Francesca, was kind enough to wait late as our flight was delayed. She gave us perfect directions via public transportation to the apartment. The place was excellent -clean, comfortable, safe, great organization, cute kitchen, with grocery store and many restaurants in easy walking distance. An outstanding hub to explore Rome on foot and via public transportation. We loved it and are most appreciative of our hostess.

Party type: Young Couple     Visiting from: Australia    Review date: May 2013    

What a wonderful apartment, in a perfect location, walking distance to everything. The owner (Francesca) was brilliant, contacting us regularly for any assistance we may need. The apartment has everything you need for a comfortable stay and is off the main street in a quiet location. Highly recommended, and good value. Will stay again.

Party type: Older Couple     Visiting from: Ireland    Review date: April 2013    

We arrived at the apartment at 10.30pm on Sunday and were welcomed by Francesca with a bottle of wine and a bowl of fruit. The Apartment is ideally located for visiting the various historic sites, most of which are in walking distance. We have recommended it to our friends who may visit Roma in next year.

Party type: Family Group     Visiting from: United States    Review date: January 2013    

This apartment is a great location and a perfect size for 2 people. Grocery store is very close and great restaurants just minutes away. Francesca was so helpful! I'll defininetly be back to Rome and Monserrato!

The apartment was as described very clean, comfortabable and with all facilities needed. It was in a perfect location for walking to all the sites of Rome. Francesca was a lovely lady and couldn't do enough to help us enjoy our stay. Would not hesitate to recommend the apartment and hopefully will be back

Visiting from: Australia    Review date: November 2012    

My daughter and I had a fantastic stay in the apartment monseratto, Francesca couldnt have been more helpful to us from picking my daughter up from the airport even when her flight was delayed to greeting me with fruit & wine and the warmth of an old friend. It is in a fantastic location, plenty of cafes close by, supermarket almost at the front door and the comp de fiori markets just around the corner etc The apartment is exactly as it is shown there are no hidden surprises it is as fantastic as it looks, I recommend it to anyone staying in rome. we will most definately stay in this apartment again. Thank you francesca xx from Marcia & I cant recommend this apartment enough, a fabulous location, great value for money. why stay in a hotel when you can have some breathing space in the centre of Rome. everything you will need is in this apartment.

Party type: Mixed Group     Visiting from: United Kingdom    Review date: October 2012    

This was my second time at Apartment Monserrato and it was all I remembered and more. The apartment had recently been decorated and was clean and fresh. Francesca met us and we were greeted warmly and she had left a bottle of wine and fruit for us. We will return to Rome and I would not consider staying anywhere else but this lovely apartment. It is comfortable, clean and within walking distance of all the main attractions. All you need for a Roman Holiday. Linda Good Scotland

Party type: Young Couple     Visiting from: Australia    Review date: September 2012    

Neat, clean place to crash in an excellent location, with lots of restaurants and pubs nearby. As the apartment faces away from the street there is no street noise to deal with, although you can hear every word the neighbours say through the inner courtyard. Useful appliances in the apartment, but internet access would be good. While not exactly enormous, but nothing in this price range is in the centre of Rome. We'd definitely be keen to book again next time we're in town.

Party type: Family Group     Visiting from: Australia     Review date: September 2012    

September 2012. What a beautiful and elegant location for our visit in Roma! This is a superb apartment, clean and nicely organised just perfect for a couple or family of three in a very convenient area of Via del Monserrato. The owner, Francesca, was very friendly and helpful and had organised everything for us, including a spot for parking our car just a block away. The apartment location allows you to walk everywhere in Roma, from Trastevere to the Vaticano, Piazza Navona, Piazza di Spagna, Colosseum and Foro Romano and many more places! No need to get public transport at all. The apartment is very close to Piazza Farnese e Campo dei Fiori with many restaurants and cafes at the door step. But if you wish to cook your meals/breakfast, as we did, there is a small supermarket well stocked with fresh food and delicatessen, really just around the corner! Unfortunately it was only a short stay for us this time, but we are planning to go back very soon and stay longer at the Monserrato’s appartment for our “Vacanze Romane”!

#12 Via Monserrato was one of the best things about our visit to Rome, perfect for me and my wife on our anniversary holiday. It shows that the host put all the thought necessary for a comfortable stay in the apartment. It is clean and has just about everything you can need. The best part is that it is centrally located and we were able to walk to most of the places of interest... 10 minutes to Vetican, 15 minutes to Via Del Corso for some awesome shopping, 25 minutes to Colossium. It was perfect, I'd stay there over and over

Party type: Older Couple     Visiting from: Australia    Review date: August 2012    

Thank you Francesca for your welcome. Your apartment was presented immaculately. We felt privileged to have stayed in your apartment and would highly recommend it to anyone contemplating a stay in Rome. Being an older couple we were still able to walk to all the major tourist attractions. The supermarket, restaurants and cafes were also close by. The air-conditioning was much appreciated as Rome was experiencing a heatwave. We loved our stay here.

Party type: Young Couple     Visiting from: United States    Review date: July 2012    

My boyfriend and I started our 2 week vacation at this little apartment in Rome. The location was great we were able to walk to all the main attractions and very close to shops restaurants and bars. The apartment was decorated very nicely and was a good use of space. It had air conditioning and a fan. We met the owner at the apartment at the time we had agreed on. Francesca had a lovely bottle of wine for us and explained all the amenities. This is a great place for two people. We felt very at home. I would stay here again and gladly recommend it to anyone. It looks just like it does I'm the pictures.

Party type: Mixed Group     Visiting from: United States    Review date: July 2012    

This place is centrally located and yet surprisingly quiet, a rarity for a place within the Aurelian walls. The layout is modern, comfortable, and well appointed. The kitchen is perfect for preparing salads and cooking light meals, and is perfect for balancing eating in and going out an enjoying a wonderful dinner. Also since the Campo is quick walk nearby, you can go get wonderful produce, fruit, cheeses, bread etc for a lovely little lunch at home. If you are on the fence, please take my recommendation, I really enjoyed coming home here and felt absolutely comfortable - and if you knew me, you would know that I am very very very picky.

Party type: Young Couple     Visiting from: Australia    Review date: June 2012    

Perfect location, walk to almost everything, even in warm Rome weather! Absolutely quiet apartment, we slept incredibly well! Facilities were good and air-conditioner was very welcome. Francesca was very helpful, gave us lots of info. Check-in/out was very smooth. We were able to use free wifi at nearby cafes.

A lovely apartment in an excellent location. The landlord Francesca was very kind and helpful on our arrival.

Wonderfully interesting location central to all the major tourist sites and with all the amenities we wanted nearby. The apartment has style and character and the welcome we received from Francesca was an unexpected delight. So much thought has gone into anticipating everything guests might need and providing useful local information. Highly recommended!

Party type: Young Couple     Visiting from: Denmark    Review date: May 2012    

This is the second time we rent the Monserrato apartment (see my review from 2 years ago) - a testimony that we indeed like the place and are happy to come back. Again, we had found the apartment in the same well-maintained and comfortable state and this time with the Wi-Fi. Also, compared to last time, we had a closer communication with Francesca, the apartment owner, who was most welcoming and helpful. Though we consider ourselves seasoned travelers and can usually manage on our own, it was reassuring to have a friendly and responsive local like Francesca to quickly clarify things and extend recommendations and help if asked for.

Visiting from: United States    Review date: April 2012    

This apartment was a perfect home base for experiencing and exploring Rome, and was exactly as pictured and described (except the cleaning fee was 45 euros instead of 25). We were thrilled with the proximity to everything we wanted (especially Campo de' Fiori -- which must be visited in the morning for the market and pizza bianca or rossa, at lunch time for the panini, and in the evening for the passegiata -- and Osteria da Fortunato at Via del Pellegrino 12, for a home cooked meal with pasta made right in front of you). The nearby bus and taxi stops at Chiesa Nuova were great for coming and going, but we walked almost everywhere. Rosie was very gracious, and provided helpful suggestions and maps. Because we stayed for ten nights we did not want to carry cash for the entire stay, so we paid by credit card in advance of our arrival. That worked well for us. The apartment had everything we needed, even a hair dryer. The bed was big and comfortable. There is a low beam over the loft, but my wife is only 5' 3", so she took the far side of the bed, and didn't have to duck at all. There is a low doorway into the kitchen, as well as a step, so if you are tall, you have to step up and duck at the same time -- but that was not much of an issue, and the old arch there adds so much character that you wouldn't want it changed. We would be very happy to stay at the Apartment Monserrato again, and recommend it highly.

Holiday to Rome was very good. Apartment Monserrato is just minutes from the local food shop, and 5-10 minutes gets you to a variety of Restaurants. The bus stop is about 2 mins away and has connections to the Main Termini Station, the colloseum and the Vatican City. However all the main attractions are within easy walking distance without using the buses if this is preferable. We found that during the heat of the day it was easier using the buses to get around but then in the evening to walk everywhere. Inside the apartment was very clean, though the apartment is small it is plently big enough for a couple. The bathroom is nice too with a good shower. Air conditioning worked well. Would recommend this apartment to any visitors.

Visiting from: United States    Review date: May 2011    

This apartment is in a great location. We easily walked (even with jet lag) to Campo dei Fiori, Piazza Navona, and the Pantheon. We also walked to the Capitolini Museum and the Colosseum. The apartment itself is a good use of space and feels bigger than it actually is. If you have any mobility problems, though, you might have some difficulty with the loft steps. It looks just like the web site depicts, only it's lighter and airier. Rosie met us and was very pleasant and pointed out grocery stores in the area. There are a lot of restaurants a very short distance away, so you'll have a lot to choose from. I would definitely stay here again.

Party type: Family Group     Visiting from: United Kingdom    Review date: April 2011    

Perfectly located, central yet peaceful. Ideal for a short visit to Rome. We would highly recommend it to any small family group. Comfortable and compact. We were there in late April, the weather was lovely but we did wonder if the apartment might be very hot in the height of the summer.

Party type: Older Couple     Visiting from: Scotland    Review date: October 2010    

This apartment was excellent. It was central and although compact it was very comfortable and had everything you would require for a holiday. The owner met us on arrival and was very friendly and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this very pleasant and clean apartment and would definately stay in it again and recommend it to friends. Linda and Stephen Edinburgh UK

the Monserrato apartment was in a wonderful spot to thoroughly enjoy walking in Rome - we were able to walk to all major places and if tired at the end of the morning there were bus stops for both the main buses and the little inner city ones near to the apartment. the proximity to the Campo dei Fiore made picking up delicious food easy and a great pleasure. The apartment was exactly as advertised on the net. We were a little surprised that it did not have a washing machine (but that was an assumption we made). As it was hot we were glad of the very efficient ac. AnnC Australia

We loved the accomodation. The owner was there on arrival and walked us thru the accomodation (he spoke good English) and was a very friendly man. The beds were very comfortable, kitchen and bath right sized. LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION, it was a GREAT location. Close to just about everything. We walked everywhere

Party type: Older Couple     Visiting from: Australia    Review date: September 2009    

We loved this apartment - the location is great - what a joy to walk out the door each morning! It was a perfect size for my husband and I. We're in our early 40s so the two flights of stairs were no problem. Loved the little bottle shop next door! Always a cold Peroni when you need it. On our arrival we were told there was a problem with the shower - the previous guest had smashed the shower screen. I got a call from Rosa the owner full of apologies and by the time we got back from our walk she had set up a temporary show curtain and left us a bottle of sparking wine and a lovely note. We really appreciated her prompt attention and that slight setback in no way affected our enjoyment of the apartment. There was an air con unit which we used as it was very hot and there was plenty of space to stretch out. Our only suggestion would be a different couch - maybe a single seater and a two seater? there is room for another couch so that would make it even more comfortable. Regarding the airport transfers, we can't fault them. The cars were clean and new, and the drivers courteous and prompt - our return trip was at 4.45am - way too early for us but the driver was right on time, even at that hour. Rome is a magical place and Campo di Fiori is a fantastic place to base yourself, and this apartment is great for two people. We would definately stay there again.
