Our oldest son is studying abroad in Rome for the fall semester. Our family of 5 visited him for 12 days. Having such a big family, we decided to rent an apartment, rather than a hotel room, so we could have more room and feel at home.
I couldn't have been more pleased with our choice of this apartment. It was just perfect and the views from the second bedroom balcony and kitchen window of St Peter's Basilica were just stunningt!!
The apartment was large and very clean, having a master bedroom with a king-size, very comfortable bed and a balcony. There is also a balcony off the living room, which has a couch that converts to a sleeper and a table to dine at. The second bedroom has two twin beds, also very comfortable and the balcony overlooks St. Peter's Basilica!!!! It was so nice to sit on the balcony with a glass of wine and just relax looking at the amazing cupola of St. Peter's. The kitchen was well-stocked with a microwave, cooktop range, american coffee maker and dishwasher. What a nice way to start your day having a cup of coffee at the kitchen table while looking out the large windows at the Basilica!! It was also nice to be able to cook breakfast at home, make lunch or have dinner at home to cut down on dining costs. The bathroom was large with two sinks and a washer/dryer. The apartment also has wifi. The apartment is on the 3rd floor of a secured/locked building, so we felt very safe. There is no elevator. It also is a short walk (less than 10 minutes from the Vatican). There is also a lot of pizzeria's, one even delivers right down the road, the market is also a 10 minute walk. It is very close to the bus stops, so it is easy to get around.
Andrea, the landlord was very accommodating. He offered extra towels/linens if my son that is studying in Rome wanted to spend some nights with us. He met us upon arrival with a big smile, helped us with our luggage, showed us around the apartment, gave us some recommendations of sights to see and area markets. He was available anytime we needed him and even emailed us once we got home to thank us.
I would highly recommend renting this apartment! I would rent it again in a minute on a return trip to Roma!!! Even though we were only visiting Rome, which was just beautiful and the sites are amazing, we felt like we were Roman's having our own apartment. The views will always be a favorite memory of ours.
Thank you so much, Andrea!!!
