The location of this sweet Residenza is superb, especially if you have a Roman history buff in the family! Outside the front door are ruins, see plenty more from the rooftop, including the Colosseum almost around the corner.
We shared a four bed room with our two teens on the third floor. My husband and I slept on the sofa bed which was very comfortable (they usually aren't!). Not much spare space, but really more than adequate for the night time hours we were there.
Breakfast ingredients are provided on a make-your-own basis, which worked well for us. I had notified the host, Gianluca, in advance about gluten-free requirements, and he had sourced a range of products, which was very much appreciated.
Gianluca was very warm and caring, and keen to assist with eating out and tourist information, as well as taxi. He also organized an airport shuttle, which worked well. (Suggest you arrive by taxi first time, as it's a little hard to find.)
Overall, whilst basic, it is clean and tidy, staff were helpful, wifi was good, lift in building, breakfast included, room airconditioned - would highly recommend!
