Our lovely apartment is located in the valley between the Palatine and Aventine hills, in the heart of historic and archaeological heritage of the city, including the Capitol, the seat of the town for over 2,000 years, the Roman Forum, the political and religious center of the city of Rome, and the Circus Maximus, Circo, devoted to horse racing
Our guests have access to the apartment, located on the third floor, consisting of living room complete with a fully equipped kitchen (microwave, oven, toaster, kettle, ect), bathroom, double bedroom with fitted wardrobes. In the living room is a sofa / double bed and can accommodate up to 4 people. The apartment has a beautiful terrace of 30 sqm overlooking characteristic rooftops, where you can see the altar of the homeland and the ancient walls of the Roman forum. Great for dinners, events and parties, in the evening you can watch the sunset comfortably relaxed surrounded by the scent of the many fruit trees Mediterranean. Left the house, you can reach in a few moments the main archaeological sites of the city, or the most fashionable of the moment, like lounge bars, restaurants, exhibitions, theatrical events, or simply stroll through the main shopping streets of the center, as Via del Corso, Via Frattina and Via dei Condotti, Piazza of Spain. The metro station is available at 500 meters, next to the Circus Maximus.
Pros - location, security.
Cons - Air-conditioning worked for one room only. The buzzer to the apartment did not work at all, leaving one of our number stranded outside the building for a few hours, unable to get buzzed in because we had been given only one set of keys. (The second set of keys we asked for after that had to be returned on the last day directly to owner's place of work, at some inconvenience to us.) On day two, the toilet broke (not so nice), and when we reported this, the owner agreed to make it up to us by driving us to the airport when we left. The toilet was fixed the next afternoon, but he reneged on the promise, at first ignoring the agreement, and then saying he could not be held to it because the rental agency requires only prompt action for problems of this type. Oh, and could we drop of the keys with his wife downtown before we left? (Buzzer never did get fixed.) Smaller gripes- mattress cover stained, one mattress shoved hard against electrical outlet with numerous plugs. One of the shutters to the outside was broken and could not be opened. The terrace, pleasant enough, was grimy, old dirty kids pools shoved in a corner. (No view, which may matter to some.) Seagulls screech in the morning.
First of all, the owners were absolutely fantastic! Wonderful communication before booking then extremely helpful in figuring out local places to have a special dinner etc. to celebrate my husband's birthday. And they even had a pastry for his birthday cake and a bottle of wine waiting for us when we got there. They had flyers from various tourist sites and were very informative and reachable during our stay regarding questions we had. Made a big difference with little ones in an unfamiliar city. They also arranged a car for us to get to the airport which was really convenient. The flat was great for us as we were 2 adults and 2 kids! Agree with the other reviewer that it's not a 2 bedroom because the kids' bed was in the common area which would normally be a living room, not sure if it's actually a couch that folds up? Either way, great for a family, especially with the rooftop terrace. Made a huge difference for the kids to get to run around a little vs. staying inside the apt and having to keep the noise level down so as not to disturb neighbors. Also the washing machine was a huge plus, again so we could wash the kids' clothes which of course got dirty fast and often. The location was a couple blocks up from the main street so it was very quiet which we loved. A little bit of a hike to walk around to the front of the Colosseum as the flat is located right on the backside of the forum but very walkable to the bus stop and market. Plus the hosts recommended a great neighborhood restaurant that we visited nightly...great food, drinks, service, atmosphere and just a couple of blocks from the house so perfect after a long day of site seeing. Overall a fantastic stay for a memorable trip. Would definitely recommend!
I would highly recommend this place. The front entrance is right across the street from the Roman Forum and the Palantine ruins (although you have to walk a ways to get to the entrance). The location is great!
There were 4 of us staying in the apartment. 1 bedroom and 1 bed in the main room, so it felt a little small with four of us, but very doable. It comes with a full kitchen and bathroom. We got fresh oranges and made some orange juice with their juicer! We enjoyed having breakfast on the terrace with the orange trees.
Guilio was very accommodating by giving us tips of things to see, coupons for the nearby pub (very good food and fun atmosphere!), and arranging transportation to and from the airport. The transportation was great as we didn't have to worry about trains then walking a ways. It was $50 each way but with 4 of us it was economical.
Download WhatsApp ahead of time to keep contact with the owner. This is a good way to text via wifi, so a good option for those who are not getting data plans while in Italy. It needs to verify your phone number before you can use it and we didn't have an international cell plan, so we had to wait until we had a TIM card to start using it.
The Location of the apartment is nice and to reach attraction plan 15 minutes. Also for food you if you want something else than a pub it is a walk, but the appartment is in a nice, quiet area and we loved the weekend market. We enjoyed the terrace, but in Sep. it gets dark early and there is only 1 light which means you have dinner in the dark after 7.30 pm. Also we didn't like that we couldn't use the stove propperly with more than 1-2 pans due to electicity constraints! A shame, as this was one of our key decision points to choose the apartment. Also don't choose the appartment if you want to drink more than 1 Espresso a day, the coffee pads are special and you can't buy them yourselves - supply is retricted due to Guilio's negative experience. Guilio please change the coffee machine- the rest of Europe wants more than 1 coffee a day and they want to drink it in their rented Holiday home - why else have your own kitchen. Guilio is very nice and helpful. The apartment's decor is average, but a bit too used.
I loved that appartment. It is well decorated, warm and the terrasse on the roof is amazing. Also, that location is perfect! Within a 10 minute walk, you can reach the subway (Circo Massimo), Trastevere, Piazza Venezia and via del Corso. At the corner of the street, you can find little shops and restaurants. Finally, Giulio was a perfect host. He was easy to reach and always willing to make your stay more enjoyable. Great, great stay. Grazie Mile!
Milena & Giulio were very welcoming and helpful for Rome 1st timers. It was like visiting friends! The apartment is clean, nicely furnished with a wonder terrace on the rooftop and very well located in a quiet area right in the historic center of Rome. It was definitely not our last visit there. We would recommend the apartment to any couple or little family wanting to visit Rome.
If I had to find the words to describe only the surroundings of the apartment, you should make a trip back in time to a few minutes to describe 2000 years of history and culture. How to describe the feeling of sitting at a table in a room and have a drink or eat well and feeling immersed part of the history of the Eternal City? In 2 minutes you can reach the Circus Maximus, where our ancestors liked to organize horse races. We just behind the Mouth of Truth, the Temple of Hercules Victor, The temple of Portunus, the Capitol, the Roman Forum. In 10 minutes you can reach Piazza Venezia, the Synagogue, the Tiber Island. The owner of this property will be present at check in and check out. E 'can also take a few extras such as tickets to events / exhibitions, sightseeing tours, the best restaurants pubs shops in the center to make your experience unique.
