Perfect stay in Rome

Attica Arcadia is the perfect place to stay in Rome for a couple. First off, the location cannot be beat. We took maybe 5 taxis during our week long trip, and only two were really necessary (when we went to Southern Rome & the Borghese Gallery). The Forum, Colosseum, Pantheon, Spanish Steps, St. Peter's, Campo de Fiori, Piazza Navona, and the Trevi Fountain are all within a 15 minute walk. While you never need a taxi, it is nice to know that there is a taxi stand just outside.The best thing about this apartment is the small street right outside - there are plenty of small restaurants all with outdoor seating (try La Montecarlo for incredible pizza) and boutique shops. There is a grocery store within a couple minutes.
The apartment couldn't have been better. It is perfectly sized for two people and has a home-y feel with a lot of character. The kitchen is fully equipped although it does not have a dishwasher. The only downside to the apartment is that the shower has a bit of a low ceiling - this wasn't too bad even though I'm 6'1". Also, the removable shower head's stand is located such that you have to make sure water doesn't spray out - a larger shower curtain would have been useful and maybe the stand should be adjusted/moved. While slightly annoying, the shower was not a big problem.
We will definitely be back to stay at the Attica Arcadia again!
