Review 3294: Italy-Accom, Leone 3
3bed/3bath apartment near Spanish Steps, Rome
January 2008, 5 nights
Leone 3 is a three-bedroom, second floor, apartment in central Rome. It is on the corner of Bocca di Leone and via Borgognona, just one minute from via Condotti and about a five-minute walk from the Spanish Steps. Location is perfect for up-market shopping, and is also about five minutes from the Spagna Metro station.
Great location, very safe, very quiet at night.
Everything is on the doorstep - shops, restaurants, groceries.
The apartment is very tastefully decorated. Recently renovated, it has high ceilings, lovely furniture and plenty of storage. Heating and air-conditioning - we stayed in January and the apartment was very warm. The Internet photos are very true to life. There is a large lobby, large lounge/dining, small but well-equipped kitchen, and laundry with new washing machine.
Three bedrooms: bedroom one has queen, separate walk-in and en suite; bedroom two has two singles, one of which is up a ladder (great for young kids!), and separate bathroom; bedroom three also has two singles and walk-in and en suite. The building has six floors with two apartments to each floor. Leone 2 is next door to Leone 3 and is almost identical except it's two-bedrooms. The owner Marcella (very helpful & friendly) owns both and lives upstairs.
You can view the apartment directly Leone 3.
No outside facilities.
Furniture is very sympathetic to the style of the apartment. Apartment is very clean, and there is a housekeeper who comes every other day. Plenty of room, plenty of furniture. Light and airy.
Beds very comfortable. Bathrooms clean and modern.
Although the kitchen was relatively small, it was easy to use and everything was provided other than a microwave. High quality pots, pan, crockery and utensils.
Problems or Bonuses
Very pleasantly surprised. The apartment didn't feel at all like a normal rental, with lots of attention to detail.
Agency and Representatives (and price)
Our agency, Italy-Accom, were very efficient and friendly. Everything was done via email, always a very quick response. No nasty surprises from first enquiry through to arrival at the apartment.
Do you recommend this vacation rental to others?
We are a family of two adults and three children and we would absolutely stay at the apartment again. We would also recommend Italy-Accom.
Things to do in this area
We walked everywhere except to the Vatican, where we used the Metro. Borghese Palace, Pantheon, Piazza Navona, Barberini, all easy to get to. Best restaurant - Nino. Best shops - everywhere !
