Excellent central location, responsive communication, roomy apartment

Casa Paridiso is in an excellent location, a one minute walk to the Campo de Fiore and a five and ten minute walk to the Piazza Navona and the Pantheon. Although the apartment is very near the Campo, it is very quiet at night. Bus stops, tobacco shops for bus/metro tickets, ATMs, grocery stores, mailbox, bakeries, restaurants, gelato are all within a very short walk. I enjoyed a morning walk going in different directions each day and it is amazing in Rome how much there is to see. Every few minutes you pass a piazza or old church or interesting shops or sights. If you are in good shape, you can easily walk to the major sites within 20 minutes of the apartment, otherwise you can take a bus or taxi. The apartment feels larger than the photos suggest. The kitchen is well equipped, the dining table is large, and the sofa is large enough for two. There is even satellite TV. The wifi worked pretty good, but the signal strength varied within the apartment. We used the washing machine and there is a provided drying rack. We visited in May/June when the outside temperature was around 75 deg but it was nice to have the AC to keep the apartment cool. Beds were comfortable. The bathrooms were nice and functional with plenty of hot water and good pressure. If the trash is full you just leave it out in the street in the morning and it is picked up. Laura was very responsive to all of my emails, before the trip and while we were there. We had a 0615 flight and she was able to arrange a driver to take us to the airport, even at the early hour. We traveled with 2 kids age 10 and 12 and the location made it easy to return to the apartment to take breaks in the middle of the day. I definitely recommend Casa Paradiso as a place to stay in central Rome.
