The perfect Roman Holiday

There is a good reason why there are 26 (and counting) positive reviews for this apartment: it's the perfect place for a Roman Holiday.
For starters, the apartment has everything you need and maybe more: great bed (and reasonably comfortable sofa bed), fully furnished kitchen, large bathroom and even guide books, a washing machine, cable television and very good internet. In fact, the apartment is even furnished with a desktop computer that guests are free to use. The apartment is also modern, clean and generally well taken care of. Our family of four had a very comfortable stay here.
As it was our first time in Rome, we had no idea about neighbourhoods but we felt like we really lucked out with the location of this apartment. It's in Monti, a quiet, safe and very cool neighbourhood with lots of interesting little shops and great cafés. Walk a few steps to the end of the street and you're facing the Fori Imperiali and all it's ancient ruins. Just down the street is the Colosseum; the apartment is so close to so many interesting sights and one can easily walk to all the major sites in Rome as we did. The apartment is also a very short walk to a metro station, so very convenient indeed.
A word must be said about Valentino, the landlord. He is a gracious host. Very easy to communicate with and very nice in person. He met us at the apartment to welcome us to Rome, explained everything we needed to know about the apartment and then let us know that he was available to answer any questions or deal with any problems at any time. We didn't need to contact him at all during our stay but I believe he would have helped us out with anything should the need have arisen. I would have no trouble recommending this apartment to friends and family and in fact would stay in any apartment owned or managed by Valentino.
