Vacation rentals in Italy (villas, farms, estates, agriturismo, apartments)
Review 4677: Umbria Holiday Rentals, Vista Rocca
1bed/1bath apartment in Spoletto, Umbria
May 2010, 4 days
The Vista Rocca apartment is in the historic center of Spoleto. The location is great for exploring the city and there was on street parking near by.
There was a Coop grocery store within walking distance, about 15 minutes away. There were many restaurants within a short walk.
The apartment is located in an older building. There were other apartments available through the same agency in the building. The apartment had a bedroom located in the back which was quiet. The bathroom was very small but manageable. The living/kitchen area had windows that overlooked the street with a view of the Rocca. The windows were large and it was nice and bright during the day.
There was no outdoor area.
The apartment was clean. One reason for the neutral review is that the sofa (sofabed) was very uncomfortable to sit on. There was only one other small chair other than the dining table chairs to sit on and that was not particularly comfortable either. It had a nice flat screen TV with English language channels.
The bed was not overly comfortable either but the bedroom was quiet. The shower in the bath was a small stall and the bathroom also contained the washing machine. The sink was smaller and there was limited room for toiletries.
The kitchen was very functional and well stocked. We were provided some drinks, pasta, sauce, bread, etc. for a basic meal.
Problems or Bonuses
The web site had said there was no Internet access but a wired only service had recently been installed in the bedroom.
Agency and Representatives (and price)
The agency was great. Norma, who handled all the reservation information was very helpful. Laurie who met us for check in and had all other interaction with us was extremely nice. He would quickly respond if we texted him with any questions. They had a nice information packet including restaurant reviews.
Do you recommend this vacation rental to others?
I don't think I'd stay in this apartment again but I would instead look for a different apartment managed by the same agency. If they replaced the sofa and bed I would certainly reconsider.
