Despite the overall review being average my fiancee and I were happy with this accommodation. It is basic and that is exactly what we needed.
Our room overlooked the Piazza and most nights it can be noisy until around 1am although the window shutters did help somewhat. Families with small children it is worth mentioning here that the windows open fully with no protection guard.
The owner was very friendly and provided a map of the city which was easy to follow. After our initial meeting we didn't see much of him for the duration of our trip however, we could get hold of him via mobile for any problems but didn't need to.
The area around the apartment is vibrant in the early evening and it is worth having a walk through the picturesque cobbled streets that are filled with eateries, shops, bars and of course places of worship.
The room is basic with a good clean bathroom, small fridge, TV and Wi-Fi. There is also a communal dining area with 2 gas hobs, kettle and microwave...anyone going in the next few days, you are welcome to help yourselves to the corn flakes we left in the cupboard :-)
25 mins walk to the Colosseum
35 mins walk to St Peter's Basilica
20 mins walk to the Pantheon
My partner and I are fairly fit so these are just rough guides.
We managed to find a good deal on these apartments and were slightly shocked to see the normal price which was much higher. Had we paid full price then we would've expected more.
Hope this helps.
