Review by LA Heil from US

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


When

June 2012, 4 nights

Location

The apartment, while not in the most touristy area, is within a 10-15 minute walk to many of the main sites. It's close to the Piazza Navona and the Campo dei Fiori. It was close to everything, yet not in the middle of mayhem.

Nearby Amenities

There is a small cafe down the street where you can have drinks or coffee. There is an excellent bakery, Roscioli's, right across the street from there. There is a grocery store just a couple of blocks away. Many restaurants and cafes are within walking distance, and we highly recommend the Roscioli Salumeria!

The House/Apartment

The building is old, but has all the modern amenities except for air conditioning, which we did not need while we were there, fortunately. If you opened the windows, a lovely breeze flows right through. It was a quiet building - we could not hear anything from other flats. There is a small lift.

Garden

No outside sitting areas.

Furnishings/Cleanliness/Living Areas

Everything was in good shape and clean. The kitchen had everything we needed, including a dishwasher and clothes washer/dryer. The couch was comfy, and there were many books to read, including many guide books on Rome, as well as novels in English.

Bedrooms/Bathrooms

The bed was comfortable, and had some feather pillows, which were very much appreciated. The bathroom is small, but adequate.

Kitchen

The kitchen had everything we needed, including a dishwasher and clothes washer/dryer. We didn't really cook, but the kitchen appeared to be well-stocked for those who do want to.

Agency and Representatives (and price)

The owners, Massimo and Bianca were very gracious and easy to work with. When we arrived, we had a "Face time" chat, and Massimo walked us through all the particulars, including how to work the appliances. His English is excellent.

Do you recommend this vacation rental to others?

This apartment isn't fancy, but it is cozy, comfortable, well-equipped, and is excellently situated. I would definitely recommend staying here, and hope to stay here again the next time we're in Rome.

Things to do in this area

We did all the usual things, walked all over the place. There are many piazzas where you can have a drink or a bite and watch the world go by. Again, we highly recommend the Roscioli Salumeria!
