In short, this was a fantastic place to stay. Want the long story? Read on.
We stayed in the flowers room with the terrace. It was absolutely perfect. Spotlessly clean, quiet, and great service.
Marco met us as we had arranged and showed us around, reviewed a map with us, and was available when we needed him. This is exactly what we wanted. Clean, quiet accomodations that made us feel a bit like we lived in Roma. No one hovering over us or all the services of a hotel that we would never use.
This apartment is about a 5 minute walk from Termini. We never felt unsafe. We walked to the Colosseum and to the metro stops and station. Termini has a great grocery store that made for wonderful picnic style dinners (downstairs on the apartment side of the station). Breakfast was light, but more than adequate--our son is still trying to figure out how to get those packaged croissants at home! Yogurt, blood orange juice, milk, and coffee or tea. Jam and crackers. It was just fine. We usually grabbed espresso at the station before boarding our transportation.
Marco was extremely helpful with tips on how to navigate Rome. His prices are more than fair. The rooms are all large (we got to peek in while the cleaner was there) and very clean. There is an elevator in the building, but you have to be able to go up at least one flight of steps (might be two, I can't remember) in order to access it.
Area restaurants cater to the backpackers and tourists. I would avoid--we didn't try, but Marco assured us they were not Roman and so we weren't interested. We loved Trattoria der Pallero South of the Pantheon. Well worth the trouble to find it!
His website has pictures that are completely accurate. We actually thought the real thing was even better. You won't be disappointed if you want clean, quiet accomodations for a great price in a convenient location in lovely Rome! Just don't reserve it when we want to be there!
Marco, thank you. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Rome because of you.
