Very comfortable apt with everything you need plus lovely balcony for morning coffee, afternoon wine

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed our stay for 4 days/3 nights right in the center of everything near Pantheon. Giacomo, owner, was very helpful, responsive and friendly--a delight to deal with--helped with transfer from airport to apt and with restaurant recs. The apt was well appointed in the kitchen and bath. Everything we needed was there for making coffee, eggs and toast for breakfast and appetizers/cocktails in the evening. You could cook a simple dinner there for 2-3. We had breakfast every morning on the balcony as well as cocktails in the evening. Lovely. King bed was very comfortable. Plenty of hanging and drawer space for clothes. Living room area and sofas were comfortable and generous for two. Bath had nice tub and shower, bidet and sink. Linens were average. AC works well; we only used it one night. There is plenty of cross ventilation via windows in every room. The elevator to the 4th floor is handy. Beyond that, you still have about 10-12 steps to climb to reach the apt. Wasn't a problem but be aware. We had no problem with noise. It was quiet at night. I would recommend this apartment to others who want comfort, casual and totally functional--nothing baroque and no gold leaf! We would stay there again for sure.

Ideal location and value for money

  • 4 of 5

The Castore apartment is in a great location, easy distance to the Pantheon, Campo de Fiori, the Ghetto, Trastevere. Giacomo told us which bus to catch from the train station and which stop, met us at the building and got us settled in, and also arranged for an early morning pick-up to the airport at the end of our six-night stay. Tiny kitchen, but fine to make coffee in the morning (stove-top espresso pot - there was a single and a 3-cup pot). A/C was greatly appreciated, as was the elevator. Has satellite TV in living room and bedroom, which we didn't use. Comfy couch, but stained - could use a slipcover. Our only complaint would be the bed; it was a rock hard futon pad, very much like sleeping on the ground; that definitely needs an upgrade.

Owner's Response: I'm really sorry for the bed I want to thank you for your polite advice. I've changed the mattresses, now the bed is much more confortable Hope to guest you next time you come to Rome

Best location, walking distance to everything, next door to super charming Jewish ghetto.

  • 4 of 5

Clean, charming apartment with amazing location. Kitchen had everything we needed to make breakfast every morning that we enjoyed on the balcony. Well functioning AC (a must in the summer months) and decent wifi. Our one big complaint (and the reason we give 4 instead 5 stars): the bed in master bedroom was hard like a rock! After 6 nights our backs were bruised. Considering the price we paid, the purchase of an IKEA mattress to put on top would be paid off in less than a day...

Other little things: a couple more folding chairs for the balcony would have been nice as well as a universal converter for the outlets.

Overall a great place to stay.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is a terrific location for sightseeing throughout Rome. Attractions are close by and within walking distance. If you don't want to walk, there are several bus stops a block away along with a taxi stop. There are supermarkets within one block and lots of restaurants. The apartment was clean and well kept. It was a great place to stay and Giacomo is very nice to deal with and very helpful.

An unbelievable location close to all the historic sites.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this apartment in late March 2016. Its location is unbeatable, as it is just minutes away by foot from the major historic sites. In addition, it is conveniently located around the corner from a market, bancomat, and a taxi station. We were able to walk to all the major sites, including the Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, Piazza Navona, and Campo dei Fiori. The Roman Forum is only about a fifteen minute walk from the apartment. The apartment itself comfortably accommodated my wife, our 7 year-old, and me. The only issue someone might have is with the bed in the master bedroom, which was very lumpy and too firm for my taste, but others might disagree. The mattress our child slept on was very comfortable, and easily could have slept an additional child. There was plenty of hot water for showers. I should add that Giacomo was a pleasure. Once we arrived, he met us at the apartment and explained how everything worked. He was very easy to communicate with prior to our arrival as well, and even arranged for a transfer from the airport to the apartment for us for €50. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
