Review 5456: Romeloft.com, Via Giulia Elegant Apartment
1bed/1bath apartment near Campo dei Fiore, Rome
October 31-November 3, 2012, 3 nights
We have just returned home from Rome. The rental of the Via Giulia apartment through Romeloft.com was an overall positive experience. As soon as we arrived in Rome I called Romeloft to let them know I was 10 minute late due to city traffic. Mr. Honey who was supposed to meet us at the apartment, told us he was late too, and arrived 40 minutes later. He apologized for the inconvenience; the only bad thing was that it was raining and we got quite wet, in the small street there was no way to get shelter.
The apartment is pretty much as shown on their site, only smaller, but clean and proper. The living room had two big ecru armchairs (one of them with some spots) and a big navy sofa bed, which was comfortable, but not intended for two adults, as one mattress is composed of the two split sofa pillows, so if you sleep on that side you can feel the gap. However, it was okay for us as we were three and not four.
Although it has two big floor to ceiling windows, the apartment overall is quite dark as it is an a tiny street (vicolo Sugarelli), so little natural light is coming from the outside. However, there were a lot of nice, warm lights and table lights in the living room. The TV is a new plasma Samsung about 32", no satellite, but very good. There is a good WiFi connection in the entire apartment.
The bedroom is big, with lots of space. The bed was a little hard at the beginning but very comfortable. For storage there are big wardrobes and a huge closet. The window was OK but, as all the apartment curtains, in need of a good wash.
The bathroom was of the small size, but the clean white tiles all over made it OK. In the bathroom there is a nice window, and the window glass has no shedding, so ... everybody could see you; fortunately, it is on a rear corner, probably some opaque or frosted glass would be best.
The kitchen was perfect, small but clean, provided with a starter kit for breakfast: sugar, coffee, tea, serviettes and much more. The fridge was clean and new.
It is a good apartment for the price, if only a few things like pillows and curtains were washed. There was a small ceiling leaking (probably due to recent big rain), but rest of the house seemed freshly whitewashed. It is a very old palace, nice and with a small lift, which was good since the apartment is on fourth floor.
In conclusion, this Romeloft apartment has worked properly for our needs!
