Amazing in every way
I stayed here for 2 months (end of May- July 2012) and I cannot say one bad thing about this apartment, so here are all the Pros:
Location- it is the absolutely the best. At the end of one block is the Spanish Steps, and 5 minutes the other way is the Trevi fountain and a super market to buy fresh food, or anything else you might need. The Metro stops in Piazza Barberini which connects you to all top sights in Rome, and the Termini to get to other locations as well. Rome's top shopping is at the bottom of the Spanish Steps, so you are very close in case you need to drop off your shopping bags and go back out for more shopping. You are never more than a 25 minute walk to ANYWHERE in Rome (including the Colosseo or the Vatican.) The apartment itself is on a quiet, and beautiful street, Via Sistina.
Apartment- Large front room, kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom. All linens provided. The apartment is clean and very very comfortable. The AC is also a fantastic feature in the summer. You can leave it off all day while you are sightseeing, and come home, and within 5 minutes it is freezing cold. Cant get much better than that. The views from the apartment are also amazing. You can see an great view of Roman rooftops, and to the street below. You can comfortably sleep 4-5 people in this apartment, and have all the comforts of home.
Apartment Manager- Luca and his team are 5 star. They are incredibly responsive and always made sure that every expectation was not only met, but exceeded. They met me at the apartment when I arrived, and also arranged a private car service to pick me up from the airport (FCO) when I arrived and departed the apartment. He also had a bottle of wine and some fresh fruit waiting for me when I arrived. Thank you so much Luca!!
Restaurants and Gelato close by- A great restaurant is right across the street- La Botto. They have fresh pasta and possibly the best pizza i found in all of Rome. The entire staff is very friendly, and would always welcome me whenever I would dine there, which ended up being ~2x/ week. The chef is also a constant in the dining area, coming by to make sure your food is the absolute best. There is also a gelato shop across the street next to the Il Sistina theatre (about 2 min away) called Blue Ice. They always have fresh gelato and rotating flavors. If you are craving a flavor you dont see, just ask one of the girls, and chances are they will get it for you from the back.
Bottom line is the apartment is the very best!
