Penthouse views in Campo Dei Fiore
We had a wonderful stay in the perfectly located apartment in the center of things in Rome! Very quiet inside with great windows and shutters to help keep out the very hot July temperatures.
Comfortable beds, a great terrace rounded things out for our week long stay. Will stay again!
Lovely secure property in Campo di Fiore
Centrally located with a beautiful view. It had all the comforts I expected from the description, simple, not luxurious but very comfortable. And the terrace view, it was outstanding. St. Peters from the terrace....a definite wow factor. And don't worry about restaurants, air conditioning and sounds from Campo di Fiore.
However there was a very important omission from the description that the property manager was totally aware. Other sounds than the fun at the Piazza. Demolition and I assume construction with power tools on the apartment above us. At 8 AM we were awoken with very loud power cutting tools (reciprocating saw) and abrasives grinding away. This went from Monday morning through Wednesday morning. It may have continued on Thursday but we left early on a tour and left before their 8 AM start time.
We paid promptly, and even was required to pay an additional deposit while checking into the property. We were never alerted by the Property Manager or Owner of the very loud and definitely awakening sounds we endured, which thoroughly disrupted and ruined our stay. With this in mind, I feel that we should have been alerted of this inconvenience and had the choice to cancel or reschedule our well planned stay. In other words we were stuck by lies through omission.
I feel I have the right to have known this before we even left for Europe, and at the very least, before our arrival 10 days later. We scheduled the property rental in February and again, was never told of this.
I have rented over 25 properties in my years in Europe. Never have I had to tolerate noise to wake to due to workmen. I would "NEVER" rent a property in this state. Again, the property manager was totally aware of this and never mentioned it until he sent a text confirming his knowledge of this situation 3 days or so into our stay after all the electric grinding and cutting wake up calls.
I am not sure of other's feelings, but after paying the required rent, don't you feel you have the right to know and not be deceived.? I feel I was totally deceived and I thought HomeAway would never endorse such actions....but it happened and I feel I was taken advantage. I had the right to know!
Thank you so much for your review. I am really sorry for this inconvenience. I didn't know that my neighbour would have done reparations in his apartment during your stay. Guido - the property manager - received the information of the incoming work the date of your arrival. Besides, we had no idea that it would have been this loud and disturbing. On my side to compensate you for this unforeseen event I will welcome you again at my apartment for half of the fees.
All the best,
We enjoyed this apartment as our home base for a week in Rome! The two bedrooms have air conditioning. It is a comfortable place to stay.
A Month in Rome
We walked in the apartment and immediately felt ‘at home’. The living room was inviting and the kitchen serviceable, but since there were so many good little restaurants within walking distance we didn’t do a whole lot of cooking, even though there’s a butcher, fish store, specialty grocery store and all the fresh produce you could desire, a stone’s throw away! Back in New York this morning we missed the bright blue sky visible first thing upon waking up out the bed room window and hearing the bells chime from all directions. The bells were about the only sound we were aware of, and despite the proximity of the Campo dei Fiori, the apartment was very quiet. And of course there’s the terrace, which even in March was lovely. Another good feature was that the owner’s agent was available instantaneously and at all hours to offer assistance if requested.
All in all, we spent a lovely month and hope to return sometime.
Charming apartment with a beautiful terrace.
Our family of four loved this spot. It was perfect for the four of us. Close to all that old Rome has to offer. We didn’t get in a car all week as we were able to walk everywhere. Thank you for a wonderful stay!
A wonderful place to stay.
Thanks Kristine! It was a real pleasure hosting you. Please do come again!
