“A Good Choice for Some Travelers”
Reviewed September 17, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

The location is excellent. It's a 20 minute walk to the Coloseum. The apartment was clean. It was a typical European bed but comfortable. There was hot water in the shower. The owner, Frederico, was very helpful and even very understanding when we decided that we wanted to stay in a different part of Rome when we returned from a short trip to Sardinia during our two week vacation. It's in a Jewish neighborhood. We're not Jewish but enjoyed eating in the restaurants literally just outside the front door. There is also many shops and restaurants just a short walk away from the apartment. The apartment is very roomy with the bedroom upstairs. There is another bed downstairs also used as a couch. We didn't use it, but it appeared to have a very decent mattress on it. The internet was the best I've encountered in Europe. I would only recommend this apartment for a couple, however. There is only one bath/shower. The owner only supplies you with one bath towel per person. Don't count on the tiny washing machine (and no dryer) to do any laundry. It's smaller than any apartment washing machine I've ever seen. Although the apartment is clean, it does not look like the photos the owner shows you. It could use some painting and general fixing up. The courtyard was not usable. There was no shower curtain and no curtain on the shower window, thereby eliminating privacy in the bathroom. The steps to the apartment are difficult to negotiate and would not be suitable for anyone who has any trouble walking. There is a spartan supply of items for the kitchen, and nothing is electric. We used the Moka pot for espresso in the mornings and did grow to like it. We didn't cook. There were no instructions on how to use the electronic equipment, and we never could figure out how to use the local phone that comes with the apartment. You have three locks to open to enter the apartment. Tip: When going out, there is a buzzer that opens the second lock without the necessity of a key. The owner called a taxi for us when we left for the airport which was appreciated since the apartment is not on a main thoroughfare.

Apartment is right on the block with the Portico D'Ottavia and Da Giggetto. It has lots of light and windows - both onto an interior courtyard for the building and a courtyard that is shared by several buildings. Very quiet at night. Small balcony onto the shared courtyard. Modern and stylish. Bed is very comfortable. Kitchen is well equiped - very large fridge by Italian standards. Could use some instructions in English for the various electronic items (washer, satellite television). Be sure to ask how everything works before the host leaves. The host was pleasant and helpful.
