Lovely apartment in such a great neighborhood!

First time in Rome, I can't believe I was brave enough to rent an apartment, not knowing the city or the owner! I followed instructions to take the Metro from the train station which was easy enough. However, it was POURING RAIN when we exited the Metro station (and we didn't have umbrellas because we were planning on nothing less than perfect weather). Well, we bought two umbrellas from a street vendor (is this New York?) and found our way just a few blocks to this lovely apartment. Chiara was waiting to meet us and show us around. The apartment was fantastic! It was exceptionally clean, really spacious, the bathroom was beautiully done and quite roomy also.
good quality sheets and towels, even a blowdryer. I loved the view, the Italian charm, the street, everything! There is even a washing machine, which we would have used had we stayed more than a few days. The building is quiet and the bedroom is at the rear so it's super quiet. There are many restaurants and shops up and down the neighborhood streets. The Colosseum is practically around the corner. We walked to the Trevi Fountain our first night. We bought the Roma Pass and found it invaluable for the transporation, which is easy to figure out. We used the Metro system as well as a couple of buses. There is free wifi here and it's easy to use. We did not get a chance to meet Mancredi, the owner, but he was very good at communicating with me prior to my arrival and always answered my questions. I was totally impressed with this apartment. It was a great value and I found it relaxing to stay here rather than a hotel. This is one of the few apartments I contacted that allowed a three night stay. Most wanted a minimum of five nights. We checked out the roof terrace. It was a nice bonus, but we didn't spend any time up there as we were out late each night. I would recommend this to apartment to anyone and certainly would not hesitate to stay here again.
