Review 322: Palazzo Olivia, Apartment

www.palazzo-olivia.it

Not Recommended
Review by George from USA

apartments in the historic center, Rome


When

June 2001, 4 days

Location

Just off Piazza Navona.

Nearby Amenities

Great location, restaurants. Stefano even has one.

The House/Apartment

Just as stated by others who have reviewed the apt. We rented it as a two bedroom with kitchen. The front bedroom was very small, the rear bedroom was a tad larger and looked out on to the back of Stefano's restaurant, just a alley. The front of the apartment has a sitting room with TV and windows that open on the busy street.

Garden

None

Furnishings/Cleanliness/Living Areas

Good furniture, sofa, TV, small table and beds. Very clean.

Bedrooms/Bathrooms

Bedrooms were very small with no air flow.

Kitchen

Would not want to cook a full meal. Very small kitchen in the hallway.

Problems or Bonuses

No air conditioning. Zak at TuscanHouse indicated as such but said with windows open there would be a breeze. Well, with windows open I am in agreement with Pauline, it's just too noisy with horns and scooters. We were there in the first part of June and it was much too hot in the apartment with no air flow at all. We had to keep windows open but it was like being on Times Square with the noise.

Let me say this, Stefano is the best and would do anything to help make your stay more enjoyable but no AC was out of his realm. We even went as far to buy fans.

Agency and Representatives (and price)

TuscanHouse was as advertised.

Do you recommend this vacation rental to others?

Only in the non-summer months and if you like a great location with lots of noise.
