Unfortunately, we experienced a few problems and overall, were disappointed with our stay. The apartment is located centrally, but very close(10 meters) to an unemployment office and a strip club. This seemed to encourage unpleasant activities in the alley outside the front door, including groups drinking at night, sitting on the steps. In the mornings we found many, many empty and broken bottles and a used syringe. Given it was hot weather and I was wearing sandals, the syringe was the biggest worry. Inside the apartment, it is quite old, except for the bathroom. When we opened the windows, the paint was peeling off the windows. The kitchen cupboards have rotted in many places, the dishwasher was rusty on the inside and there was no plug for the kitchen sink. Given the state of the kitchen though, we didn't particularly feel like cooking..... There was no iron or ironing board. On reporting these problems, Apartments Apart quickly delivered an iron and some dishwashing tablets (as we couldn't use the sink). However, ironing is very difficult without an ironing board. Overall, it was not worth the money and we would never stay there again. I was pleased to leave.
The apartment is a good size for 2 people. The bathroom seems recently renovated (except for the bathroom window) which was good. The location is walking distance to many areas of Rome. There are a couple of good restaurants nearby, but we had to search to find them. Most of the local places were extremely touristy and some charged double for normal items, such as coffee (even standing up at the bar). However, overall, the apartment was not satisfactory due to the condition of the kitchen and the missing items, plus the very unpleasant activities happening outside the front door of the apartment building.
