Apartment is just as pictured. Clean and comfortable. Ask Flaminia where the nearest food store is if you would like to make a few meals (a stove top, toaster, k-cup type espresso maker...no american coffee maker... electric kettle, microwave). Really cute place with small old (whats not in Italy?) fashioned elevator. Bring extra toiletries...there is liquid soap, small hand soap and packaged shower gel. We stayed 9 nights and sheets and towels and a cleaning was done midway. That was unexpected and very nice. No "living room" area. Just a cushioned seat which we used to pile all our purchases and bags on. Beds are comfortable, a little on the hard side (to me, husband loved it).
Vatican is a 10 minute walk and an excellent place to stay if you will be spending a lot of time visiting the vatican sites. Subway is also a 10 minute walk. Although the bus stop is across the street, we did not use it. 15-20 minute walk to Piazza Navonna, Campo di Fiori.
This neighborhood is non touristy so a little Italian will really help. A few blocks over to Vatican tourist area and all speak English! Thank you Bianca and Flaminia.
Loved our stay here at Dimora Luminosa "Bright House". The owners went out of their way to make our stay as memorable as possible. The apartment itself is decorated with modern furnishings, is bright and airy and extremely well located to both the Vatican City (maybe 800m walk) and Castle St. Angelo (maybe 200m walk). This made getting to both venues on foot and early (before the long lines developed) very easy indeed. Also, bus 492 stops at the front door of the apartment making travel into the city or to Termini Station relatively simple as well. Will definately stay here again if I find myself in Rome in the future.
We found the apartment to be very clean and in great condition. Having 2 bathrooms was very handy after a long day. Bianca, her sister and daughter were very helpful, and even had a delicious cake for us on arrival. The location is great - very quiet and safe neighborhood and only 5 minutest walking distance to the Vatican. I would not hesitate to recommend this great place for anyone to stay in.

Travelling with three small children. Bianca was very helpful and provided a cot for us. The apartment was just as the pictures show and a short walk to The Vatican and Piazza Navona. Bianca met us on arrival and departure and even provided us with homemade cakes on arrival.
First time I have booked through trip advisor and it was great.
Flavina and Bianca were all about geniuine services, they gives advice from where to go and where to eat arround not mention the amazing welcoming of Bianca's cupcakes!!, the apartment is excellent in a nice building with a great location, beds and bathroom were really comfortable, the WIFI works great which was A plus for us, overall was a really good experience we have a really good time and we hope to go back again not only in Rome but in the DIMORA LUMINOSA!
