Nice little shops near by - Ice cream just downstairs - Grocery store at the corner - Metro very close to the appartment.
The best of it all - and we loved it.
My wife suggests to subtract one more star for the quality of beds and the kitchen -
Apartment 167 was super, fabulous views, fab location and a really lovely space to chill after walking for miles around this amazing historic city. Yes 6 flights up but good for the muscles and memory! supermarket at the corner near the church, had everything you might need..had some beautiful meals on the balcony. Very central location, 20 min lovely walk to colosseo, around the corner from the station with buses, metro and trains and airport bus. Plenty of little restaurants around to eat. Church is amazing, fab mosaics, ceiling and statues and the wonderful bells keeping time. There were 5 of us and the two on the pull out bed did find it a tad uncomfortable after a couple of nights but their solution was to put the mattress on the floor and it worked a treat! Our host Raffael was a gentleman and did his utmost to make sure all was well before he left us. Would really recommend the location and the apartment..we are planning a return trip already, a week wasnt nearly enough time to see this incredible city!!
Ligging prima, uitrusting goed, mooi terras. Kritiekpunt
Het is geen 4 persoonsappartement. Het is geschikt voor 2 volwassenen en en 1 kind. De bedbank is waardeloos en er komt te veel licht in het vertrek waar de bedbank staat. We hebben ons tweede kind in onze slaapkamer op de kussens van de bedbank laten slapen.
Although the apartment can, in a pinch, sleep 5 or even 6 guests, only three will have the privacy, comfort and convenience of a bedroom and a bed.
The kitchen is fine for light, simple meals but plan on supplying a few necessities such as olive oil and salt. There is a convenient local super market and plenty of restaurants in the area.
The location worked out well, since it is a five minute walk from the central train station and subway stops.
Our only negative comments about the apartment itself have to do with lighting (not enough of it, especially in the kitchen) and the reluctance of the toilet to flush completely every time. Small things, but we were reminded of them every day.
The single adverse comment I want to make is that we found the bed a little...how shall I say?...past its best. The mattress seemed very soft and bouncy and the shelf/headboard loose, which meant it tended to move when we moved. Needing some tightening up and the mattress needing replacement, perhaps? Though the apartment remains superb, a good night's sleep is so important on holiday, just as at home.
I hope you will take this comment in the spirit with which it is offered: for others, for you and, not least, for us because we would like to come again!
Suited 3 of us well and the shower did not cause any difficulties.
Only one suggestion for improvement really, another set of keys would be useful because bigger parties often visit different sights and keep different hours.
Via Cavour through to the Colloseo, Panella on Via Merulana for the most amazing pane, Santa Maria Maggiore itself, the proximity of Termini and the metro lines, Teatro dell Opera etc really the location is perfect.
negative: some large spots that appeared to be mould on several walls - we did not use one room because of the smell of mould, we never had enough warm water for a shower.
Owner Replies I'm terribly sorry to read this! I care to specify that the mold problem was coming from a leak in the ceiling and it has now been resolved completely. Sorry but that happened while you were there and I couldn't fix it before. I've set the hot water at a higher temperature now, please always call me for these kind of problems I'll be eager to help you!
positiv: helle, fúnktionell eingerichtete Wohnung, Dachterrasse mit grandioser Aussicht, tolle Lage
