The apartment was exactly as described and illustrated. Our host Olivia was prompt and courteous and met us at the door with the keys upon our arrival. The only hitch we encountered was that the oven was not operating, a problem noted by an earlier reviewer the month before. We also suggested to Olivia to think about getting a toaster since North Americans like us have grown used to these small luxuries. The loft-style layout creates a very airy and open feeling although be aware that if you travel with teenagers or others who are staying up later than you, their sounds will carry to the upper bedroom level. The location was ideal as we easily walked to all of the Rome's main attractions. There are plenty of shops and restaurants a short stroll from the apartment. A well stocked supermarket is about a 10 minute walk and a small shop selling fruits and vegetables is just around the corner. The street was quiet and peaceful so that was definitely a pleasant surprise based on other stays we've had in Rome.
I highly recommend this apartment. Thanks Olivia!
