Review by Robert from US

1bed/1bath apartment near Campo dei Fiori, Rome


When

Rome, 3 days

Location

Massimo and Bianca's apartment provides a central location from which to walk to most of Rome's attractions. Just a short walk to Piazza Navona, Pantheon and across the Tiber to the lovely Trastevere district. The area puts you into the heart of Rome and its people and isn't that why we visit?

Nearby Amenities

Within a stone's throw are some very good restuarants. Eduardo's is only 50 feet from the front door and shops abound for groceries, coffee, wine and those wonderful pastries.

The House/Apartment

The building was an older building as the beams in the ceiling were very large but in wonderful restoration. The overall condition is excellent and you are in a residential setting which means there are people about in the street but at night things calm down.

Garden

No outside area.

Furnishings/Cleanliness/Living Areas

The apartment is well furnished, clean and comfortable with a lift from the ground floor which makes it easy to transport your luggage and groceries.

Bedrooms/Bathrooms

The bed was comfortable and very accommodating to my six foot two inch frame and the bath was clean and well equipped. Although I must say that I was glad to get home to my larger shower.

Kitchen

The kitchen is well equipped and stocked with basic amenities so you don't have to go out and buy olive oil, balsamic and the like. There is no oven which is only a small drawback.

Agency and Representatives (and price)

Barbara handled our arrival as Massimo and Bianca were traveling and gave us her undivided attention. She made sure we knew how to operate all the appliances and even gave us her list of favorite places for food and shopping. Language was not a problem either as their English was much better than our Italian. The icing on the cake was the airport transport, Gino, who got up at 3:30am to get us to our flight.

Do you recommend this vacation rental to others?

Yes, we would stay there again. I would recommend this apartment for two people who are visiting Rome and want a central location and plan to do Rome mostly on foot or by bus, as public transport is very close by.

Things to do in this area

The market of Campo dei Fiori and Piazza Navona were our favorites places both for daytime and evening.
