We reserved this place based on the Tripadvisor ratings. We weren't disappointed. This place is very centrally located, within striking distance of the Collosseum, Fori Romani and 10-15 mins walk to the Trevi Fountain and Spanish steps. You don't really need a means of transport if staying in this apartment. The apartment itself is very charming, located in a vintage building, with all amenities that one could ask for. The apartment is big enough to fit 6 persons. The owners have given considerable thought while furnishing this apartment as there wasn't anything that we wanted and didn't have in there. The kitchen was well stocked with breakfast, snacks etc. The owners are extremely nice people and we were provided with assistance and guidance right from the time of our booking till our arrival and stay and till our departure. We would highly recommend this place to anyone wanting to visit Rome. We hope to be able to stay here again during a future visit to Rome.
