Loved the space and location!

Great apartment: updated and spacious in a fantastic area! So many restaurants (take out pizza from Taverna Cairoli downstairs to eat on the terrace for 6E; Roscioli fo bread and prepared foods, again for the terrace, gelato at Corona on via Arenula) piazzas (Campo dei Fiori, Farnese), museums(Palazzo Spada, Capitoline) within a 5-10 minute walk.
The furnishings are simple but comfortable and the painted terracotta floors were lovely. The beds were very comfortable (and I am a stickler for that) and the water pressure was great too. The kitchen is a typical Italian one: much smaller than we are used to in the States, but it was updated and had the bonus of a dishwasher and washing machine (drying rack pulls out of the right wall of the terrace.) The terrace was a delight (when it wasn't too hot to use it), and the air conditioning was put to the test and performed beautifully. Wifi was very reliable (a simple turning it off and on again took care of it the couple of times it went out which we chalked up to the unseasonable heat). One note: the elevator is small (only two people or one person and a bag at a time) and SLOW. Not really a problem, but good to know. To put it simply, we were there for 11 days and despite the heat (and because of it, for we spent a fair amount of time inside) we were very comfortable the whole time.
Lisa and Pat were fantastic from start to finish: very friendly, responsive and helpful both by email and phone. After a few days we found that the a/c really wasn't reaching the kids' room sufficiently (it was REALLY hot this trip) so they had us pick up a fan and reimbursed us for it. Maybe a small thing, but it was nice to know that we were being taken care of even after we had paid the rent and from so far away. We would recommend them and use them again without question. Maybe London next time....
