Vacation rentals in Italy (villas, farms, estates, agriturismo, apartments)
Review 803: WRH Hotels Network, Apartment Navona
studio apartment, Rome
July 2003, 1 week
The location was wonderful -- really close to Piazza Navona, Campo di Fiori, and the Pantheon.
Good restaurants, coffee bars, and restaurants were nearby. The nearest small supermarket was near the Pantheon, about 5-10 minutes walk from the apartment.
The building was old but newly renovated and in good shape. There were several other apartments in the building, but they were tourist rentals, I believe. The apartment was at the very top of the building, and was quiet.
There was no outside sitting area, but Piazza Navona is about 3 blocks away!
The furniture was comfortable and in good shape. The apartment was clean. There was good A/C (much appreciated in the heatwave of 2003), satellite TV, and a CD player. No telephone, of course.
The bed was comfortable. There was a folding cot for a third person, which when unfolded took up most of the floorspace not already taken by the double bed and table. We ended up three to a bed after the first couple of nights (my daughter was 6) as it was actually more comfortable that way. The bathroom was perfectly nice.
The kitchen area was compact and clean. There was a table for 2-3 people and some chairs. I'm not sure how the kitchen would have been for cooking a full meal, since there was not much counter space. All we made in the apartment was coffee.
Problems or Bonuses
Agency and Representatives (and price)
The agency was helpful and the onsite person spoke excellent English. Our only problem was that it took a couple of days for the person onsite to bring us a second key for the apartment.
Do you recommend this vacation rental to others?
I recommend this for 2 persons but not for 3.
