“Adequate for our needs”
Reviewed August 30, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

people found this review helpful

The apartment was certainly adequate for our needs. The owner was very willing to talk prior to our booking via Skype phone, and it was certainly handy having an English speaking owner. I had put off finding a Rome apartment until two weeks prior to our leaving the States, and we had limited choice compared to how many properties seem to be available a few months out.

The apartment was advertised with free limo service for transfers, and that was amazingly helpful! Both limo drivers were punctual and friendly, and we got from the train and then back to the airport with no problems. I misunderstood the advertisement and thought it was for both transfers which I spoke about in our emails; the owner did tell us when we got the keys that it was actually supposed to be for 1 transfer only, but that she was honoring what we had discussed in our emails with each other, which was awfully nice of her.

The owner was a bit insistent that we book at least one tour through her. We had been in Rome several times before, and felt that we would do fine with no tours booked. The owner stated that she was losing money if we did not book a tour, and that she had been counting on that, but my husband simply told her we were not interested in that. We felt that the tours were a bit pricey to begin with, and I was a bit surprised that her rental profit would be that affected by our booking or not booking. As it ended up, we did the Vatican, the ruins, and Rome itself with no problems and saw everything that was on our "must see" list.

The apartment was a bit smaller and a bit shabbier than we were expecting. The sofa is covered with a slipcover, and what the pictures indicated was a 'L' shaped piece on the end was a fold-out twin bed. So sitting for 4 was tight with the layout; my husband usually sat at the dining table. The balcony is very small with zero view (the washing machine is out there), and not totally conducive to sitting out with coffee or a glass of wine in the evenings. The queen bed was very hard, and the twins were very soft, but the bedding was all nice and very clean. Lighting was dim, and there was a missing fixture in the twin bedroom.

The baths were very nice. The shower bathroom is very small, but the other one with the tub is a good size. We had an issue on our last night with the water backing up through a floor drain when the bath water was let out, and I emailed the owner but never a reply; since it was when we were leaving, I just cleaned the water up and left the dirty towel I used in the tub.

The kitchen seemed more than adequate. We did not cook while there, but did stock the frig with cheeses, meats, beer, wine and soft drinks from a very handy grocery store. Restaurants were plentiful and good, and the gelato shop downstairs was great.

The a/c kept up with the outside temperatures, which were scorching! Hot water was plentiful, and we never had any issues with electric outages (which can happen in Italy).

All in all, we did not spend that much time in the apartment, so it worked out well for our needs. Had we spent more time there, it would have been a bit cramped for sitting and a little dimmer than we were used to at night. While we hated badly to leave (the entire italian vacation was spectacular!), it was wonderful go get back to my mattress!
