Central location in the Prati

  • 3 of 5

Location is great, within walking distance to the centro and all of the sights from the Forum to Trastevere to the Vatican. The apartment itself is spacious but a bit sterile feeling; the listing is by a management company rather than a private owner, and lacks some of the warmth, hominess, and personal attention to detail we have experienced staying in other VRBOs. Communication with WeeKey Rentals was fine, but there are a few minor items we would note for the benefit of other travelers: the wifi signal is very weak; the drain in the smaller bathroom is slow, producing standing soapy water in the stall when you shower; the wall air conditioner in the master bedroom has a make-shift tray under it to catch condensation, and emptying it is a bit of an adventure: you have to carry the full, shallow tray across the hall to the bathroom, and spills are more or less inevitable. In short, apart from some minor annoyances, the apartment is a serviceable choice, particularly if spaciousness and location are priorities.

Review Late June 2017

  • 4 of 5

The company was professional, good communication, and on time for getting in location.

The location was good for walking in multiple directions to a lot of Rome plus the Vatican is very close (in Rome terms). The place is large enough and the air worked pretty well for Europe (for 90+ F heat). Also pretty safe area....a little walk to subway (8+ blocks) but not so far you could not use it.

The main problems were 1) the internet was slow to very slow - not as in I want to stream netflix but just trying to book train tickets. I was on business and needed much better capability 2) the place needs a face lift. Furniture is very cheap, paint, cleaning not very good. A little money and this would be a very nice place (which is why I am posting the review).

A spacious and ideally located apartment!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very comfortable stay in this spacious apartment! We are a family of 5 with two adult children and a teenager. We loved the area and it was nice to get away from the busy tourist spots, but still be within walking distance to the popiular spots.

It was easy to find the Metro and we were close to the bus stops and taxi stand. There were great restaurants nearby, plus very good choices for our vegan daughter.

If you are a foodie like me, be sure to visit the Mercato Trionfale and dell'Unita. Otherwise, there are supermarkets with everything needed very close by.

The wifi was slow and unpredictable, but we were 5 people a night trying to use it. There isn't a dryer, but the washing machine spun out almost all moisture and you can hang clothes on the warming racks in the bathroom.

We are very thankful for the quick response by the management office when we had to change our arrival time due to a connection delay. Plus the driver waited longer than he should because luggage was lost. We appreciates the very late check-in!

Thank you! We would without hesitation return and highly recommend this rental.

Spacious, Comfortable Apartment in Rome

  • 4 of 5

We booked this apartment at the very last minute because our original reservations were cancelled, so we were going to make the best of it. We used the same Management Company's to schedule car service and worked out perfect from Termini Station to the apartment.

Emanuele greeted us at the apartment when we got there. We paid an extra 25 euros because we checked in after 9pm, but he spent over an hour with us getting us comfortable in the apartment and with the surrounding area, shops, restaurants, etc. Emanuele provided us with a map and gave us great tips!

The apartment turned out to be very comfortable and spacious for 5 adults and 1 child. We realized when we were there that there weren't any tvs, but that was ok since we were out sightseeing most of the time. The apartment was very clean. Plenty of towels were provided. We didn't use the kitchen at all, but it's convenient to have.

The iron in the apartment did not work, but we were delivered a brand new one the next day, which I was very happy with since I like wearing freshly pressed clothing. The washing machine was very convenient as well.

Each room had an AC unit in, which worked great since it's pretty warm in July!

We booked in advance car service to take us back to Termini station, but they did not show up after 30 minutes and several calls to their office. I was told the driver went to the wrong address, but after 30 minutes we had to leave since we had a train to catch. We got 2 taxis (since it was 6 of and 6 pieces of luggage). We got to the station in a bit over 10 minutes and for about 25 euros which was half of what we paid for car service. We were refunded the return car service in full almost immediately after advising we had to take a taxi.

I would definitely recommend this apartment for a family, but not the car service- you can catch a taxi almost everywhere to take you where you need to go within the city.

Spacious is right!

  • 4 of 5

This apartment in Rome was perfect for our group of people. The apartment was extremely comfortable and spacious and the location was a perfect homebase for our city visit. The apartment afforded privacy and a lot of space to each bedroom and included a large kitchen, dining room and living room and the 2 bathrooms (with 1 jacuzzi tub) were an amazing bonus for the price. Raphael met us on our arrival and was waiting for us. After helping us with our bags, he quickly reviewed everything that we needed to know and spoke perfect english. He ensured that we would have everything that we needed and left his number for any questions we may have. He also made sure someone brought another set of towels later that day. The apartment was about 2 blocks from the nearest metro station which was perfect for our getting around the city. There were many restaurants and cafes in the area, I definitely recommend Astoria as it was probably one of the best meals we had in Europe! The apartment has a small elevator, but the apartment was only 1 floor up so we just walked except for when we were transporting our luggage. The WIFI was slow in the master bedroom because it was far away from the router, but it was fine. All those in my group were very happy with this apartment and would definitely recommend to stay here.
