Vacation rentals in Italy (villas, farms, estates, agriturismo, apartments)
Review 3611: Bed & Breakfast Association of Rome, Cod. 061 - Piramide Ostiense
1bed/1bath near Stazione Ostiense, Rome
Rome, 5 nights
The apartment is in a real residential area of Rome, with a few, but not many, tourists. But it is five minutes from fast transport (metro), which takes you to all the tourist "hot spots" within minutes.
Walk to everything. More than one supermarket, fresh fruit and vegetable shop, restaurants downstairs, and a fabulous gelateria.
It is in a local, family-occupied apartment building. The street is very busy, but there is double glazing and air conditioning if the traffic noise becomes too much (but then Rome is a noisy city!)
You can view the apartment directly: Piramide Ostiense.
No garden or outside area.
Everything was immaculately clean, and the furniture was comfortable.
The beds were comfortable, and the bathroom very spacious. The shower stall is very tiny, so a very obese person may have difficulty getting in and out. The shower is great - water pressure and temp is fine. The bathroom also houses a washer/dryer. There is a bidet as well as toilet.
The kitchen was very well stocked - including many touches you don't always find in rental apartments.
Problems or Bonuses
The owner left a mobile phone for us to contact her with any questions at all. That was very thoughtful.
Agency and Representatives (and price)
The agency was excellent. All dealings were efficient and professional, and communications were answered within a day's turnaround (great considering time zone differences). All communication was in English. The apartment lived up to published details.
We paid €600 for a five night stay (for three people).
Do you recommend this vacation rental to others?
Yes, with no hesitation. Anyone who wants to experience "real Rome" (but not out in the sticks) will be very pleased with it.
Things to do in this area
The gelateria in the next building was a real hit with us. Thank goodness there was a great fridge/freezer to keep the gelato frozen!
We visited the Non-Catholic cemetery where Keats and Shelley are buried. It is a peaceful haven. Also liked walking in the Aventine area which is nearby.
