Great location. Felt like a home, not a rental.

We stayed in Teodora for a week at the end of November. It is a comfortable apartment for two couples. The location is ideal - very close to the top of the Spanish Steps and no more than a five minute walk to either the Spagna or Barberini metro stops. Stella, the greeter, was warm, welcoming, and informative. She was very easy to make arrangements with prior to our arrival.
The apartment is surprisingly roomy for a Roman rental and the kitchen is well equiped. It is nicely decorated so apartment feels welcoming, instead of like a glorified hotel room. We didn't have the chance to take advantage of the terrace because of cold and rain, but it looked like a nice spot to enjoy breakfast.
Internet access is limited to a USB key. Unless you have a mobile wi-fi hotspot, access is limited to one device at a time. Those with iPads and smart phones have to go across the street for free wi-fi at La Fenice cafe. The people at the cafe don't mind, especially if you sip an esspresso or cappucino while using their wi-fi.
A word of warning about the bathroom in the rear, you have to step over a knee high wall to get into the shower. Something to consider if someone in your party has mobility or balance issues. The front bathroom has no obstructions.
One or two blocks from Teodora, tucked away on a side street, is a wonderful restaurant - Osteria Barberini. It is open for lunch and dinner. Reservations are recommended. We stopped in on Tuesday night and made reservations for dinner on Wednesday.
