Review 1737: Dolce Roma, Colosseum View

Review by NAT from US

2bed/2bath apartment near Colosseum, Rome


When

SEPTEMBER 2005, 5 DAYS

Location

APPARTMENT IS VERY CLOSE TO THE COLOSEO 5 MINUTES WALKING DISTANCE ON THE VIA ST.GIOVANNI IN LATERANO. SUBWAY AND TOURIST BUSES ARE RIGHT THERE ACROSS FROM THE COLOSEO. THERE ARE PLENTY OF SMALL RESTAURANTS ALL WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE. THE CITY BUS STOPS RIGHT NEAR APPARTMENT AND TAKES YOU TO VARIOUS PARTS OF ROME. LOCATION IS PRETTY QUIET WITH A LITTLE TRAFFIC.

Nearby Amenities

THERE ARE 2 SMALL GROCERY STORES AND INTERNET POINT STORE ON THE SAME STREET. VERY CONVINIENT. WE FOUND ENGLISH PUB NOT FAR FROM THE APPARTMENT ON MERULANA STREET, WHERE YOU CAN CHAT WITH BARTENDER WHO SPEAKS GOOD ENGLISH AND WATCH MTV IF YOU GET HOME SICK FOR AMERICAN MUSIC.

The House/Apartment

THE BUILDING AND APARTMENT IS IN VERY GOOD CONDITION. FIRST OF ALL IT IS VERY PRIVATE. YOU WILL HAVE A KEY FOR THE ENTRY DOOR TO THE BUILDING AND THE APPATMENT. IT IS VERY CLEAN AND COMFORTABLE. YOU WILL NEVER HEAR YOUR NEIGHBOURS.

Furnishings/Cleanliness/Living Areas

FURNITURE IS IN GREAT SHAPE.

Bedrooms/Bathrooms

BEDS ARE VERY COMFORTABLE. ROOMS ARE NICE AND CLEAN. ONE OF THE BATHROOMS IS VERY SMALL BUT THE OTHER IS OF VERY GOOD SPACIOUS SIZE AND WELL EQIPPED. I FOUND WELL NEEDED HAIR DRYER THAT KIND NATALIA LEAVES FOR HER GUESTS IN CASE THEY FORGET TO BRING THEIR OWN OR FORGET THEIR ELECTRIC CONVERTER.

Kitchen

KITCHEN IS SMALL BUT ENOUGH TO MAKE QUICK BREAKFAST AND CAPUCCINO EVEN PASTA FOR DINNER. IT HAS A DISHWASHER.

Problems or Bonuses

THE BIGGEST PLUS IS HAVING A TAXI SERVICE ARRANGED BY NATALIA TO PICK YOU UP AND DROP YOU OFF IN THE AIRPORT. SHE ALSO LEAVES YOU A CELL PHONE TO USE IN EMERGENCY CASE OR TO CALL HER WITH ANY QUESTIONS. SHE WILL PROVIDE YOU ALL INFORMATION ABOUT BEST RESTAURANTS IN THE AREA WHERE TO GO WHAT TO SEE WHEN AND HOW. SHE WILL TELL YOU THE BEST PLACES FOR SHOPPING AND IT GOES ON AND ON. SHE IS FLUENT IN ENGLISH.

Agency and Representatives (and price)

WE GOT MORE THEN WE EXPECTED FROM THE PLACE. THE PRICE WAS REASONABLE 120 EUROS/DAY.

Do you recommend this vacation rental to others?

I WILL HIGHLY RECOMMEND NATALIA'S SERVICE AND HER APARTMENT ON ST GIOVANNI. WE SPOKE WITH PEOPLE WHO PAID TWICE MORE TO STAY IN A HOTEL IN THE SAME AREA.

Things to do in this area

THERE ARE NUMEROUS RESTORANTS ON ST GIOVANNI IN LATERANO. WE ENJOYED EVERY ONE OF FEW THAT WE VISITED FOR LUNCH OR DINNER. YOU WILL MEET LOCALS AND TOURISTS IN THAT AREA. ITALIANS ARE VERY FRIENDLY TOWARDS TOURISTS. WE TRIED TO SPEAK OUR BROKEN ITALIAN TO MOST OF THEM BUT WERE ANSWERED IN VERY GOOD ENGLISH SO THE PROBLEM WAS SOLVED ON THE SPOT.
