We had great time at Residence AT after surviving 106 stairs. We were upgraded from double room to a 2 storey apartment with living room with fire place downstairs and bedroom and bathroom upstairs. It is not an everyday opportunity to watch Palazzo Berberini from bathroom. Breakfast is served at the room at the time you choose and they serve toast, croissants, tea,juice, marmelade, butter. The apartment was very clean and is tastefully decorated.
The location is just perfect. We stayed in Rome for a week and did not use any public transportation. It is 5 min from the Spanish Stairs on one side and 5 minutes walk from Trevi Fauntain. In some 20 minutes of nice walk you get to Forum and Colloseum. We even walked to Vatikan and all other sites. We only used bus to go shopping to one of the nearby designer outlets, but at the end shopping in Rome shops was much better experience and we enjoyed it more.
One piece of advice, do not bother to book any guided tours, as everything to be seen (and in Rome that is truly everything) is within walking distance and why loosing a chance to explore little narrow streets and enjoying Rome charm.
It is advisable to buy tickets for museums and galleries in advance to avoid quing up.
For Vatikan museum visit I suggest booking a tour. We did it online and we very happy we did it, given that there are 1200 rooms available for public, and you easily get lost. It took us 4 hours to see the most important parts of the Vatikan museum. After the visit we were so tired and it was raining, so we went to the first restaurant on the main street accross Vatikan and that was real rip off - overpriced bad food.
I am looking forward to repeating my visit to Rome and I would again choose this place to stay.
