This is one of the best apartments I've had in many years of staying in vacation rental apartments. I stayed here two weeks with a combination of friends and family.
The apartment is very clean and exactly as advertised. It has a good layout for multiple guests as you can close off the living space from the bedrooms for those who have different bed times. There is street noise in the bedrooms. Those who are light sleepers may want to use ear plugs. However, you are on a busy road with traffic so some noise is to be expected.
The bathroom is large with a shower in good working order.
All of the electronics and appliances work well - the air conditioning, the kitchen equipment, the electrical outlets, the television and the WIFI and the washer. There were enough dishes, placemats, cutlery and glasses.
The bedrooms have lots of storage space. There were extra towels, pillows and blankets available.
The apartment has been set up specifically for renters, so there is nothing extraneous like knickknacks to worry about and no personal objects in the cupboards or closets, and yet it has some comforts of home, like electric/manual shutters for all the windows as well as full length window shades. The owners supplied a hair dryer, iron and ironing board, broom and dustpan etc.
The location is very good for public transportation by bus and metro. There are good restaurants, an excellent gelateria, a supermarket, delicatessens, tobacco shop, newstand, fruit store, wine store, etc. all within a few blocks. The Testaccio market with all of its local food sellers (and shoe stalls) is a 15 minute walk and an excellent place to buy local food. And, Volpetti, one of the best food shops in Rome, is also a 15 minute walk away. The building is modern, and on a busy modern thoroughfare, but just a couple of blocks away you can find much quieter parks and some interesting places to just walk by. This is not the location for someone who wants to be within walking distance of say Piazza Navona. This was my 4th visit to Rome and this apartment was excellent for seeing a different side of the city.
If you are a walker, you can also walk to the Colosseum from this apartment without any difficulty.
The owners are extremely responsive and do their best to be helpful. They make a point of ensuring that the guests know how to contact them and are anxious to make the guests happy. They are also just very nice people!
