Review by Liveforhols from UK

Studio apartment in Monti, Rome

Via Cimarra, photo by Don White


June 2013, 2 weeks


The apartment is perfectly located in the Monti area of Rome. Not only are you within easy reach of all the main sights with excellent transport links but Monti itself is delightful.

Nearby Amenities

Plenty of good bars for morning coffee & cornetti. Good restaurants including a choice of non-Italian venues. Shopping for food is a pleasure with specialist stores as well as a supermarket that opens on a Sunday.

The House/Apartment

The apartment is on the ground floor and is tiny but the space is used well. There is enough storage space for two people and room under the bed to store cases out of the way. We like to 'open the windows and let in the sounds of the street' so noise was never a problem for us.

You can view the property directly: Via Cimarra.


The main attraction is the lovely roof terrace which covers the whole area of the apartment. We spent most of our time in the apartment on the terrace. It is planted with a bay hedge which ensures that it is quite private.

Furnishings/Cleanliness/Living Areas

Furnishings were fairly basic but in good shape and the apartment was clean. The decor was thoughtful.


The bed was comfortable with extra covers if needed. The shower was better than we have experienced in previous rentals.


The kitchen area was fine but we were slightly disappointed in the quantity and choice of utensils. We did make basic pasta dishes but mainly assembled cold meats, salads etc.

Agency and Representatives (and price)

The agency are great to deal with. They answer e-mails promptly and were very efficient when we had a problem with the WiFi (they supplied a new router) The description and photographs reflect the apartment as it is.

Do you recommend this vacation rental to others?

We absolutely loved this apartment and will definitely stay here again. It is charming and the location couldn't be better.

Things to do in this area

We spent a lot of time in Monti. We breakfasted in local bars or bought cornetti to enjoy on the terrace. We bought Panini at Gaudeo for lunch on the terrace. We chilled out in the heat of the day in the shaded area on the terrace. We spent aperitivo time in local bars (Periodico and 4 Civico to name two) or on the terrace and when not eating in local restaurants (La Carbonara, Taverna dei Fori Imperiali, Alle Carette to name a few) we ate dinner by candlelight on the terrace. Guess we really liked the terrace!
