The apartment is extremely well situated - minutes to the Campo dei Fiori, Piazza Navona, Vatican City - everything you could want. It's also near my most favorite bakery, Il Fornaio on via dei Baullari, and everything Roscioli. It will comfortably sleep 4 people and you can cook and dine in comfort. The only point that keeps this from five full stars is the noise from Corso Vittorio Emmanuelle in the event you like to sleep with your windows open, as we do. However, this is a small (half star) price to pay for the location and ease of dealing with Francesco and his property manager, the excellent Mrs. Rosie. Both are super nice and extremely helpful. This is a great place to base yourself for sightseeing in Rome.
Great apartment and very central to all attractions. Francesco was very accommodating and very quick to respond to our requests.
The apartment is very clean and well equipped for a self catering stay.
Only negative is we thought there was a second bedroom however the second bed is in living area!
Otherwise a fabulous stay and would definitely recommend to stay.
This place was great! Clean, well-equipped, and in walking distance to everything we wanted to see. Ms Rosie was great when we checked in, gave us great advice on where to eat and how to get around. Francesco was kind enough to arrange from our transfer from the airport, which really helped.
My only issue was that I misinterpreted the pictures in the listing. What looks like a sitting room is actually the second bedroom. The couch is a pull-out. It met our needs perfectly so it was really a non-issue.
The air conditioning unit worked hard, but unfortunately when it's 38 degrees Celsius outside, it's hard to get the apartment to a reasonable temperature.
Francesco made our experience so enjoyable. He was responsive to our every question prior to booking. When an owner pays attention to every little detail, you as the guest reap all the rewards. Francesco pays attention to ALL the details. The apartment is just as it was pictured on the internet. We were so pleased with Mrs. Rosie who met us and explained everything to us. We were happy with the location on the corner of Via Sora and Corso Vittorio Emanuele – bus stop just around the corner. I thought we might have a problem with noise from the street, but we did not. The windows are very well insulated. There is an elevator. The living room was very comfortable. It was a plus having a TV with English news stations. The bedroom was very nicely decorated with plenty of lighting for reading. The bed was so comfortable – we slept like babies. Only negative in bedroom is there is no place to hang clothes or a dresser to put them in (we used the entertainment center in the living room and the very spacious closet in the hall and that worked fine for us). The kitchen was fully equipped. It was nice having a washing machine in the apartment for us to use. The bathroom was very spacious – no tub but a large shower (unusual for Italy). Wi-Fi worked really well. This is a great apartment with an even better location. You will not be disappointed here – Francesco insures that you will have a great experience. We highly recommend this lovely apartment in Rome.
