About Marianne Rude


Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Marianne,

thank you for sharing your beautiful flat with us.It's tastefully and creatively designed and decorated.

It's wonderfully and generously appointed so it was very easy to just live there for a few days.

Laura & Michael, San Francisco CA

A wonderful stay in Rome, made even better with your lovely apartment in a great location with the real charme and character.

Never having to use public transport to reach all of the major attractions.

The spectaculair view of St. Peter's Dome is indescribable.

We will miss having our breakfast on this fantastic terrasse.

Thanks very much

Marianne, just a quick note to say that both Richard and I have loved staying in this fantastic apartment.

My first trip to Rome and staying here in this apartment was the " icing " on the cake. We loved Rome and will be back to both the city and the apartment, a real home from Rome to return to.

Thank you so much

My wife and I stayed here for 8 days over Easter. The reviews for this apartment are spot on. Marianne was very pleasant to deal with and answered our emails promptly. She arranged reasonably priced transport from and to the airport.The apartment was very clean and we would not hesitate to stay here again or to recommend to friends. The views from the from the deck of St. Peter's are even better in person. 5 stars.

Not much I can add to the previous reviews of this wonderful apartment - it is absolutely perfect! We stayed there for a week in March and enjoyed every single day! Apartment is spacious, nicely decorated, has it character and feels very comfortable and cozy.

Bottle of vine as a welcome gift was very touchy - thanks a lot Marianne for providing great accommodation for us!

Next time in Rome - I would not even think about another place to stay.

boutique home near the vatican

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this lovely apartment for 1 week.We chose to use a taxi which Marianne booked from airport to apartment door.This was hasslefree and quick.Marianne met us at her home and told us all we needed to know.The apartment is on the top floor (7th) and is accessed by a lift. It is very secure and safe.Very well equipped,clean and with everything you would ever need.There is a large outdoor terrace with table and seating.The view of the vatican is fabulous especially when it is lit up at night.In warmer months sitting outdoors with a bottle of wine/prosecco overlooking the vatican dome is magical.We really loved this apartment and could have lived there. It was lovely to come back every afternoon and relax in the comfortable surroundings.We would certainly stay here again and would recommend it to everyone.Certainly better than staying in a hotel.

Absolutely wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second rental in Rome in as many years. We chose this property based on the location and pictures - but most of all for the reviews. we were not disappointed! This one bedroom penthouse which was our home for seven nights has been lovingly cared for and is well appointed with everything you need. We did a fair amount of cooking in and I was surprised to find a supply of good cookware and sharp knives. The apartment is very comfortable and the terrace unparalleled. Marianne was a very gracious host, arranging our transport to and from the airport and providing helpful hints and historical perspective on many of the sites we planned to visit. I needed to hire a car and driver for one day and Marianne was quick to arrange it. She truly loves and is happy to share her adopted city with you. I would not hesitate to recommend this home to others who are looking for a location convenient to the city but out of the mayhem that can be central Rome.

Perfect Fantastic who could ask for anything more

  • 5 of 5

What a gem - everything was perfect we were met at the airport and arrived at the apartment where Marianne met us - we had been communicating on email and she always answered - it was like meeting a friend. The apartment is beautiful - better than anything we could have expected so clean and well looked after it was like home from home. The views were amazing and just as shown in the website. It is only a brief walk to St. Peter's square and there are lots of restraunts nearby and a 24hour supermarket less than 3 mins away. We eat a few times at a restraunt on a side street near an elementary school and church - don't know the name but it was ace ! Avoid the tourist places to eat near the underpass ! We stayed 8 nights and clean bed linen and towels were provided after four nights - that was such a pleasure and unexpected. On our departure the taxi to the airport arranged by Marianne arrived on time and was perfect - we were just having a coffee at the little bar near by. We couldn't recommend this apartment more highly - if you want to travel to Rome it is perfect for two people - very safe and quiet. If we go to Rome again and I have been three times now this is the place to stay. There was even a teapot something often missing in continental apartments. Thank you Marianne for letting us stay in your home. Professor Richard H ( Leeds U.K. )

Stunning view

  • 4 of 5

Marianne was a delightful host. She organised our transfers to and from the airport and spoilt us with a lovely bottle of wine on arrival. The unit was spacious and had everything we needed for a very comfortable stay. Close to supermarket. Bit of a walk into town but worth it for the incredible view over the vatican and Saint Peters. We even saw the Pope's address while sipping wine from the balcony!
