Review 4876: Domus International, Corso Vittorio Emanuele II (CVE)
2bed/2bath near apartment Piazza Navona, Rome
November 2010, One week
This apartment is located on Corso Vittorio Emanuel right in the heart of Rome. The location is perfect.
There is a grocery located in the same building. A great coffee shop was two blocks away. Lots of great restaurants nearby. Also, there are several bus stops right outside the building.
The building was in good shape overall. There is a large elevator to get you upstairs. This apartment is located on a major street in Rome yet it is very quiet inside the apartment.
Lovely patio area! No pool.
The furniture is beautiful and comfortable. The apartment was clean. The television did not work while we were there.
This apartment has lovely art.
The beds were excellent; the linens were nice and clean. The master bedroom was very pretty with lovely art and two pretty side tables.
There were two bathrooms. The second bathroom has the bathtub; a nice old soaking tub. The hardware is broken on the tub and falls off. Unfortunately, in both bathrooms there are broken or chipped tiles, and areas of the cabinets that are only partially painted. This apartment rents at a high rate; given that, the upkeep should be better and the broken items should be repaired and fixed up.
The kitchen was very small; it is not updated. It has a wonderful view out onto the patio and you can see across to the living room. The refrigerator is nice. The freezer perhaps had not been used in a long time because there was several inches of frozen water in a few of the freezer drawers.
The pots and pans were of low quality; there was not a matching set of pots and pans. The dishes were of low quality and there was not a full set. The oven requires a good deal of tinkering to get it turned on (you need to turn on the alarm to get the oven to go on). There is a panini press and several stove top espresso makers.
Problems or Bonuses
This is an apartment with some gorgeous features: Frescos on the ceiling; beautiful windows and furniture, books from floor to ceiling. Unfortunately, the apartment isn't in great shape. The window immediately outside of the apartment is shattered and broken, letting in cold air and making it look a bit unkept and unsafe. That said, the apartment is comfortable and it feels like you are in your own home, filled with lovely art.
Agency and Representatives (and price)
Domus International is an amazing agency. They were courteous and professional at every step of the way. The team that helped us was Paola who helped us online as we were planning the trip. Paola was very responsive to any questions or concerns that we had; wonderful service. While we were at the apartment we were assisted by Stefano. Stefano was friendly and helpful; several problems arose while we were there; he did his best to help us with each problem. He gave us his cell phone and was available whenever we needed him.
I highly recommend Domus International.
Do you recommend this vacation rental to others?
We would stay here again and we would make our arrangements through Domus International.
