Rome for the month of June 2016--Excellent Location

  • 4 of 5

My son & I visited Rome June 2016. 2 friends joined us for the 1st 2 weeks, so Fernando's apartment was just the right size. Nice kitchen, living rm, dining rm, & large bedrm with a very comfortable queen bed on the main floor. 3 of these rooms have "lofts" built above them (each with a spiral stairs for access). One "loft" room (above dining rm) has a queen size bed + a full bathrm & small side room with a chair that pulls out to a single bed. Another "loft" room (above living rm) has a twin bed. The third "loft" room (above large bedrm) just has a portable crib, so not really set up for anything except a young child. We also had a washer & clothes line for a dryer. My son wasn't thrilled about hanging clothes out to dry but it brought back fond memories for me. The internet was good. It seemed to drop the connection periodically but it was never an issue. Note: I was able to watch TV (Dish Anywhere) on my tablet whenever I wanted, an indication of how good the speed was. The air conditioning was excellent. 3 individual units (each with its own control) let us set the temperature somewhat differently for each area making it nice for my son who likes his room cold. It was also nice to open the windows and get a wonderful cross-breeze.

My local contact was Alessandro?, not Fernando, & he was very responsive & accommodating to any questions we had & he made a special trip back to the apartment to give us a demo on lighting the gas oven when we needed help. I loved the large sized bath towels & appreciated the kitchen items available on day one: salt, pepper, basic spices, oil, vinegar, sugar, coffee. Very convenient

The absolute best thing about the apartment is its location since the most important things we wanted/needed were within a 3 to 5 minute walk: the Colosseo, Arch of Constantine, Forum, wonderful churches (San Clemente, San Giovanni in Laterano, San Giovanni e Paolo, San Gregorio Magno) + several bus stops, a tram, the Metro, a taxi stop, grocery store (very small), and good restaurants + gelato shops. A balcony with a view would have made it perfect!

The negatives are more "expectation" issues than anything else. The worst for me was the TINY shower. Bending over to get the shampoo was NOT possible. With no shelf in the shower, I had to be creative. + the upstairs bathroom had a slight odor. Then there are the steps: 83 steps up to the apartment. Since I averaged 6 miles walking per day, those steps were daunting at day's end! :-)

Very nice, everything as expected.

  • 5 of 5

Hi, We enjoyed our stay at this location. The bed was a bit hard and short for me, but not unusual for European standards. Location was perfect, close to shops, restaurants, transportation, landmarks, etc. Would highly recommend this location and would stay again. The stairs are really not a big deal. Really a ton of space - far more than you usually would get. Great value!

Great location. Great space.

  • 5 of 5

This was a great location. There are a lot of positives to it. It was centrally located to everything we wanted to see. There were stops for bus, tram, and metro all within a short walking distance. Just outside of the door was a taxi stand which was very convenient. The only small gripe I had was that it is up 4 flights of stairs. This was only inconvenient when bringing up luggage. Other positives were the wifi and the kitchen. Market just on the corner provided some snacks and drinks that were great to have on hand. Tour of the property and list of convenient phone numbers provided by owner were also helpful.

I would definitely return here.

Un appartement propre, confort et grande

  • 4 of 5

Notre famille de 6 personnes visitent Rome. Nous sommes très confortable dans l'appartement. Un appartement près de tous - 5 minutes au métro, 5 - 10 minutes près des épiceries, des restaurants et des sites de touristique. L'appartement de 4e étage sans ascenseur. Mais nous recommençons fortement cet appartement malgré tous mais c'est très agréable de rester durant 5 jours à Rome.

Estupendo apartamento en Roma / Great apartment in Rome / Ótimo apartamento em Roma

  • 5 of 5

El apartamento no puede estar en un lugar mejor, junto al Coliseo, lo que permite realizar a pie la mayor parte de las visitas. Además el metro está a cien metros, lo que permite que la llegada desde el aeropuerto (via Termini) sea muy cómoda, así como el resto de desplazamientos dentro de la ciudad. El apartamento está equipado y en buenas condiciones: toallas, sábanas, úitles de cocina y baño, etc. El supermercado está justo debajo. Y hay aire acondicionado para todas las habitaciones, importantísimo considerando el calor en verano en Roma. El propietario, amable y puntual en la entrega de llaves. Una muy buena experiencia. Espero poder repetir

The apartment couldn't be in a better place, near the Colosseum, which allows make most of the visits walking. The subway is a hundred meters from the apartment, easing not just the arrival from the airport (via Termini), but the rest of movements within the city. The apartment is equipped and in good condition: towels, sheets, kitchen and bath, etc. The supermarket is just below. And there is air conditioning in all rooms, which is specially important considering the heat in summer in Rome. The owner, friendly and punctual on delivering the keys. Just great. I hope to repeat

O apartamento não pode estar em um lugar melhor, perto do Coliseu, que permite fazer a maioria dos percursos a pé. Além disso, o metro é mesmo próximo (100 m), o que faz com que a chegada do aeroporto (via Termini) seja simples, e também as deslocações dentro da cidade. O apartamento está equipado e em boas condições: toalhas, lençóis, cozinha e banho, etc. O supermercado fica logo abaixo. E há ar condicionado em todas os quartos, o que é mesmo importante no verão em Roma. O proprietário foi amigável e pontual na entrega das chaves. En resumo, mesmo ótimo. E com certeza, se posso, vou repetir.

It is all about the location!

  • 4 of 5

This was the first of 3 Italy apartments my family of 5 (3 teenagers) stayed in - and ranked the favorite by my kids. They liked its size and we all absolutely loved the location - which is hands-down the reason why you should stay here. I can't really think of any other compliments; I felt like it met our basic needs. I am not sure why but "meeting time" here seems to be +10 minutes. Our driver called twice. It was nice of Alessandro to carry our suitcase up. It was a lot of stairs up but I knew that and no one complained even though it added to the 10 miles we had already walked each day. I thought it was funny that when I asked where to catch the bus to the Vatican he told me to use the metro or the Internet. The layout of the apartment was not easy to comprehend online: the kitchen, master, bathroom, dining and living rooms are on one level. Then 3 rooms have spiral stairs up to 3 separate lofts - one which has a side area and bathroom with shower. We loved having 2 showers! The kitchen was cramped and difficult to use, esp if you are taller than 6 feet. We cooked basic meals. We did laundry and rather than hang the clothes out to dry, I hung it on the staircases - so I wouldn't drop it down to the ground below. I appreciated having a bottle of laundry soap to use, and the basic instructions someone wrote. The apartment was very dark. Air conditioning worked very well. There was street noise til quite late every night but I think that is part of the ambiance. We called a closed- off area in front of the colosseum "our patio" and had nightly drinks there. Try delicious, affordable pizza at nearby Li Rioni - which fills up fast.
