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!

We stayed at this apartment back in October for 8 days to visit our daughter while she was studying in Rome. Both the apartment and the owner deserve the 5 star rating. The apartment was downtown close to most of the tourist sites. The apartment had sufficient space for the 3 of us and it was very clean with an adequately equiped kitchen. The balcony view was great each morning. The owner was extremely responsive and helped us immensely before our visit. Five stars across the board for both. We were very pleased.

perfect location

  • 5 of 5

I chose this apartment first because of the location which was perfect for walking everywhere. The booking process was very smooth and cost reasonable. The location was very secure and we were serenaded nightly by a neighbor who was a terrific pianist. The music did not last long so was not a problem but great to listen to.
