I have reviewed the Bed and Breakfast La Maison de Jo already. Why do it again?
If I could, on a scale of 1 to 5, give it a 10, no, a 50, or even 100, I would. Such is the experience at La Maison de Jo.
Yes, this B&B is very clean and comfortable. It is the marvelous hosts, Jo and Antonio, with support from Mirco, that make a stay at La Maison de Jo elicit such praise from those of us who are fortunate enough to have stayed here. It is there superlative treatment of guests that causes me to extend my effort in describing just how much I appreciate their efforts. So, three examples.
Our second stay at La Maison de Jo was our last night of vacation, and our last night in Rome. Jo had arranged a reservation at La Taverna, a popular restaurant. My wife and I were enjoying our meal when Jo and Antonio popped out of their car to wish us well and send us off. THEY SOUGHT US OUT TO SAY GOODBYE! That, dear reader, is truly going beyond what any reasonable guest could expect, but is the norm for these wonderful people who are no longer hosts, but friends.
Another example: we spoke with fellow guests who had wanted to go to the Vatican. No problem: Antonio took them over. Going the extra mile literally and figuratively is just part of the DNA of these wonderful folks.
A final story. We were told that a couple had come to celebrate a special occasion, and they had spent months making plans. Part of their holiday was to take a bicycle tour. When the car service arrived to pick them up, the driver demurred: he couldn't fit the bicycle. With the main event seemingly ruined, and no thought of how to salvage the mess, the couple was devastated. At any other lodging, they would have been out of luck. At La Maison de Jo going beyond any reasonable expectation is the norm. Antonio and Jo got the bike and the couple squeezed in their own car, and drove them quite a distance to the intended start point of the bike tour. Such is the dedication that Jo, Antonio, and Mirco have, that the reasonable expectation is left far in the rear view mirror of exceptional service.
As I said in my prior review, La Maison de Jo is a bit quirky. You, the reader of this review, may be seeking an anodyne experience, to come and go and never think about it again. That will not be the case at La Maison de Jo. Our experience, and that of countless others, is of a stay that we will fondly remember forever as our best travel experience ever.
Jo, Antonio, Mirco, thank you for such wonderful memories of Rome!
