We came with 3 kids, 2 adults. Stayed for a week. Rodolfo was very honest, supportive, and accommodating. The place is clean, comfortable, and has everything you need, even a clothes dryer, which is not common. Using the kitchen for some of your meals can save money, but really, the food in Rome is soooo good you just have to eat out at least once a day. Otherwise, you miss half the experience of being there. The food is so good that I now understand why they serve bottled water. It really does make a difference, especially if you've been pounding the pavement for a while.
There was only a little noise outside the apartment, which you could barely hear with the windows closed. But it wasn't much at all, so we slept with the windows open. If you're not used to stairs, they can be a bit of a pain, because it's 3 stories and you walk a lot in Rome, so when you get back to the apartment, you're like ug with the stairs. But this is a minor issue. I wouldn't not consider the place on that basis unless you really have some knee or heart issues.
If the apartment itself is nice, the location is even better. You'd be hard-pressed to find a better spot. One block from the street car. 10 minute walk from Trastevere, which we found to have great food, and by far the best value. Only a few minutes walk from Campo di Fiori and so many other things. If you walk to the Colosseum, it's a little further than it might appear on the maps, especially if it's hot, but walking is still probably the best way to get there. Just be prepared. After the walking there, waiting in line, dealing with crowds, and if you do the Forum at the same time, you will be tired and may dread the march back. The Pantheon is closer. The The Jewish quarter is 2 blocks away and was a pleasant surprise. You can even walk to the Spanish Steps and Villa Borghese. For this and some of the other places that might be a bit of a walk, just take a cab back -- they're reasonable. There really is a surprise around every corner, and the apartment's location puts you in the middle of them with about as much comfort as you can expect and at a very fair price.
Finally, if you have a child who is under 6 years old, definitely bring an umbrella stroller, or buy one when you get there. Some of the pharmacies have them.

Owner's Response: Dear I remain speechless ... Thank you!
I can not add more.
I have one question though:
- Not there are three floors
- Are only two floors
As the apartment is composed of:
- Ground floor: large living room, sofa, dining table, fully equipped kitchen, satellite TV, here takes place the day's activities.
- First bedroom with en-suite bathroom. From the living room you climb 16 steps and already you've come into your bedroom and your bathroom.
- Second bedroom and bathroom in suite: from the living room and down 16 steps and you came to your second bedroom to your bathroom with a shower and the large laundry room.
It 'so much easier!
Greetings from proprietaro, Rodolfo
