1bed/1bath apartment on Campo dei Fiori, Rome


When

May 2011, 4 nights

Location

The second floor apartment overlooked Campo dei Fiori. Two large windows provided nice breezes and great views. Wonderful location, centrally located.

Nearby Amenities

Countless restaurants within a five minute walk. Nearest grocery store, Punto, was a five to 10 minute walk.

The House/Apartment

The building is directly on Campo dei Fiori so it is quite old but well kept. There is a lot of noise coming from the Campo (it's a wonderful show!) but it's perfectly quiet when the windows and inner doors are closed. The apartment building has about eight apartments on four floors. There is no elevator. When you enter the apartment, the kitchen and bathroom are to the left, and the bedroom, sitting room (can be used as a bedroom), and living room (with plenty of seating, and a table with four chairs) are to the right. Excellent air conditioning in the sleeping areas.

Garden

No garden or outside sitting area. No pool.

Furnishings/Cleanliness/Living Areas

Most of the furniture appeared to be new. It was very comfortable and clean. There was plenty of room for the four of us. The satellite TV has some English channels.

Bedrooms/Bathrooms

The bedroom is comfortable with a king sized bed. The sitting room can be made up with two twin beds. Also, the living room sofa can be pulled out. The bathroom had a small tub with shower and shower curtain.

Kitchen

We didn't do any cooking but there appeared to be plenty of pots and pans, and dishes for four.

Problems or Bonuses

I was pleasantly surprised to see how quiet the apartment was when there was so much nighttime noise in the Campo below.

Agency and Representatives (and price)

This was the second time I've rented from Fiora in this building. She owns the penthouse apartment and is handling the rental of this apartment for a friend of hers. Communication is excellent. She and her assistant speak English. The photos on vrbo.com are very accurate. I paid 120 per night as a past renter; the website rates start at 125 per night.

Do you recommend this vacation rental to others?

I would return to this apartment tomorrow if I could! It is very comfortable and the location is wonderful.

Things to do in this area

Hosteria Farnese was great for dinner. Bar Farnese for morning coffee and afternoon snacks. Aristocampo for porchetta and other good eats. Pan Divino for panini. Roscioli (spelling?) Forno on Via dei Chiavari for pizza, bread, and other food. Food and gift market every day in the Campo - you can shop from the living room window!
