“Spacious apartment ; great location to visit Rome”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

We stayed for a week at the apartment at the 2nd floor (3rd for US visitors). A (small) elevator will take you there.
There are 3 large bedrooms, a large living area, a small kitchen and a bathroom. All very clean.
Location is very convenient. Metro station less than 5 minutes away ; Vatican is nearby. As a matter of fact we walked back to the apartment from almost everywhere in Rome via well lit and safe streets..
Some excellent grocery stores nearby and a indoor market with a fantastic choice in fruits, vegetables, fish,...is only 2 minutes away.
Alessandra is very helpfull and she will make sure you feel right at home from the start.
Do take into account this is Rome and not the quiet countryside. Blowing the horn is an integral part of driving a car here. Furthermore, there is a recycle glass container in front of the building where people may drop glass into at every hour of the day and that is emptied very, very early in the morning. However, we slept through it most of the time. But light sleepers may want to bring ear plugs.
One of the bedrooms has a window that does not open into the street, but into the patio. This room is a very quiet one.
All-in-all, moneywise it will be challenging to find a better value for your Euro (dollar, or whatever) if you want to spend some time in Rome.

I spent two weeks at this apartment and found everything as stated in the ad. The location is wonderful as we were closing to everything we came to see yet had the change to live as the locals do. If you want to stay within a 10 minute walk of St. Peters and the Vatican, this is your place. My mom, sister, one of my nieces and myself found the apartment very comfortable and would not hesitate to recommend this place too anyone. The apartment is on the third floor, as we count in the US, but the lift works great and even adds to the experience. Alessandra, the manager was great! She was very helpful learning the area and yet invisible, unless we needed her. Perfect!
Extra notes: The best restaurants are run by locales, wait until 8:00pm then walk around the side streets to see where the locals eat. The laundry mat is a 5 minute walk and they charge you $15 Euro's a load! Ouch!
If you would like an additional information feel free to drop me a line I would be happy to help.

Room Tip: check with people that have stayed there in the past.

We had 3 days in Italy before getting on our Cruise. The Apartment was perfect for our needs. Clean, comfortable, and central to many tourist site like the Vatican, St. Peter's Square, etc. Alessandra (manager) was efficient and very helpful with maps and local information (like grocery stores). One of our favorite things about this place was opening up the large windows and watching and listening to the Italian city purr :-)

I arrived in Rome late at night, not knowing what to expect,.... but i found Alessandra waiting for
my arrival. This made me feel much more comfortable,... it was just as if i had arrived home.
the room was spotlessly clean,... air conditioning ready.... as it was a hot steamy night.
bathroom near new and the cleanest i have seen,.... but above all....the attention and hospitality
offered,... by Alessandra,... was second to none. Location.... perfect....only 2minute walk to nearest metro.....5mins to St. Peter's.....at a price less than half in the near vicinity.
I WILL BE BACK.

We stayed in this apartment for a week in September and it was perfect. When we arrived we were met by Alessandra and she was great. She explained everything and gave us the keys. The location is perfect as we opted not to get a car while we were in Roma. There was the Metro around the corner, grocery stores 2 blocks away and very close to the Vatican and many good places to eat and the area was very clean and we felt very safe walking at night.
The price was perfect better than staying in a hotel and if you are thinking about traveling to Roma I would recommend this place for a family. The piano was an added bonus since one of us knew how to play.

We had the blue room. Very romantic, a good thing as we were on our honeymoon.
Very near to everything to visit, and good restaurants nearby as well as metro. Wifi perfect and included in the price. Air-conditioning was working great.
Check out at 9:30 has been disturbing for us.

We enjoyed this place. We had five adults (two couples, a single) and two babies. Kitchen with dishwasher, big common area and nicely appointed rooms. Mattresses on the beds were a little thin, but the linens were clean and the place was really nice.

A couple comments about the place:
It is on the third floor, there is an elevator, but it didn't fit our strollers so there was a lot of up and down the stairs (not a problem for us, but good to know).

It was rather noisy on the street, but I think that might be common to almost anywhere in Rome.

No air conditioning, so with the windows closed at night to keep it quiet, it did get a little hot.
