104 Steps!!

  • 3 of 5
First the positives.
1.Ideal location for visiting all the major sights on foot.
2.Plenty of restaurants to choose from & to suit all budgets.
3.Despite being in the hub of the city, the apartment was very quiet.
4.Comfortable bed & apartment very secure.
5.The owner can arrange for a pick up & drop off at the airport. Unless you already know your way around Rome, we would highly recommend using this service.

Now the negatives.
1.Please be aware there are 104 steps up to the apartment which is no fun especially when you first arrive with a heavy suitcase.
2.The apartment is not recommended for anybody over 6 feet as there is limited head clearance.
3.On our arrival on the Friday, it was discovered that the toilet seat was broken. We were assured by Rosie that this would be repaired by Monday at the latest but this had not been done by the time we departed a week later.
4.The only usable power point in the kitchen did not work & needs replacing.
5.The apartment generally needs a bit of TLC as there was flaking paint & rotten woodwork.

Best Location Ever!

  • 5 of 5
The listing description was very accurate, everything you need is available. The property was clean. We called Rosie, the housekeeper the morning after we arrived regarding the heating. While we were out sightseeing she had taken care of everything and left a sweet note. Luca was very professional and helpful; he organized transportation to and from the airport. I would recommend this property to a friend or relative. The apartment is charming and authentic and allows you to experience Rome as an insider. The location could not be more perfect, off of Piazza della Rotonda, on Via Giustiniani there is a supermarket which does not look like a typical american supermarket from the outside, but it has everything you might need. There are many restaurants directly in front of the entrance to the apartment building. You must try the Burrata di Buffala at Antionio al Pantheon, it is amazing. We were able to walk everywhere including the Vatican and Trastevere. Trastevere is a must see, and Testaccio is very nice for a less touristy area in Rome. If you are interested in authentic working class roman food Testaccio is the place to be. Overall a great city and apartment! We would return without hesitation!

Perfect location

  • 3 of 5
My daughter and I spent 7 nights in this apartment. The location can not be beat. It is in the heart of Old Rome. We walked everywhere. Longest walk was the Coliseum, 30 minutes. The Vatican is 20 minutes away. Lucas arranged for us to be picked up at the airport, which was great after the long flight..
Now for the negatives. There is just one older A/C in the apartment., located in the livingroom, with just a fan in the bedroom. This wasn't enough for us in 90+ days in July. The Internet was sporadic. We also had no hot water our last day.
I agree with the other reviews, Antonio's was great.

Best location

  • 3 of 5
My daughter and I stayed in this apartment for seven nights. I picked it for the location and that couldn't be beat. Old Rome is at your doorstep. We walked everywhere. Longest treks were the colosseum, 30 minutes and the Vatican, 20 minutes. Luca arranged for us to be picked up at the airport, which was a blessing after the long flight.
Now the negatives. There is only one older A/C unit located in the living room. Just a fan in the bedroom. This was not adequate for us for 90+ degree days in Rome in July. The Internet was intermittent, and non existent the last 24 hours of our stay, as was the hot water.
I also recommend Antonio's.

Roman Holiday

  • 5 of 5
We spent nine nights in Rome and loved it.
We picked this apartment because of the location and because it had a washing machine. The location was wonderful, the service provided by Luca and Rosie was excellent. We also appreciated the transport provided by Luca's friend, Gino, to and from the airport. The price was right and there was absolutely no hassle.
The apartment was clean and well equipped. It was exactly as described in the listing.It is 104 steps from the street to the front door of the apartment but worth the climb! The apartment is very quiet, quite a contrast to the bustle of the neighborhood. Look out the bathroom window and you can see the dome of the Pantheon.
We have only two small complaints: 1) the sofa was not very comfortable for two people (but my husband was quite happy lying on it 2) we were not able to figure out the hot water for the bath tub and we heated up water on the stove when we took baths, it was no big deal.
The restaurant across the street, Antonio's (Via dei Pastini, 12), was the best place we ate...very gracious hospitality and wonderful food. We always left with big smiles!
A guide book we highly recommend is RomeWalks by Anya Shetterly. She has five walking tours that are excellent and take you away from the crowds.
We are recommending this apartment to several friends.

Lovely stay in the Panthon-adjacent Garrett

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful 4 nights in this apartment, directly adjacent to the Pantheon. The apartment is as described, with great natural light, wood floors, beamed ceiling, and small patio. If you are tall, be warned that the ceiling is not full height in all places, and the 5th floor climb can be a bit much, but when you get inside- beautiful! The apartment was very clean, the owner very responsive, and the location ideal.... 5 minutes to gelato at Giolitti! The one negative was for me, the bath/shower- the tub is european style, and because of the low ceilings, you cannot stand up to the full height. But that's a small consideration to make for such a lovely space.
