Review 3645: Domus International, Via Giulia (GIU)

Neutral
Review by PDXtravelers from OR

2bed/2bath apartment near the river, Rome


When

July 12, 2008, 4 nights

Location

Perfect location. Walking distance to historical sights, charming, vibrant neighborhood in historic center with many shops, cafes and restaurants. Pedestrian friendly, cobblestone streets.

Nearby Amenities

Grocery store within two blocks of apartment and many restaurants and cafes to choose from near Via Giulia.

The House/Apartment

Historic building, easy access up one flight of stairs. Via Giulia is a quiet, pedestrian only street. Major renovation of the building adjacent to the apartment generated a lot of noise from early morning throughout the day.

Garden

No garden or outside area.

Furnishings/Cleanliness/Living Areas

Sparse furnishings and decor - not a place you would want to spend a lot of time in.

Bedrooms/Bathrooms

Beds were uncomfortable, no extra pillows. Air conditioning in both bedrooms was a plus. Sofa bed in living room was not adequate for a fifth person - very uncomfortable and no air conditioning in the room made it unbearably hot. Bathrooms adequate though a mini bar of soap in each would have been nice.

Kitchen

Minimally equipped kitchen fine for making breakfast.

Agency and Representatives (and price)

Prompt response from agency via email, on site representative was professional and helpful.

Do you recommend this vacation rental to others?

I would recommend Domus but would not recommend this particular property.

Things to do in this area

For a nice dinner out, I recommend Pierluigi, which is in between the apartment and Campo dei Fiori, on Via Monserrato. We went with our server's recommendations and had a fabulous meal on our final night in Rome. Reservations recommended for outdoor dining.
