The apartment has two bedroom for5 people with air conditioning ,INTERNET WIFI, it is a luxury apartment in the historical district of San Lorenzo, in centre of Rome, to 15th minutes walking from Termini Station, to 50 meters from the principal …
Our family had a very nice stay in this apartment. It was spotlessly clean and well equipped. The air-condition was nice to have in the summer heat, A bit of noise from the street could be heard but even if I am terribly sensible to nightly disturbances I slept very well with earplugs. Everything needed was handily available close by: bakery, supermarket, tobacconist, bars and restaurants. It was reasonable cheap for the whole family to eat out. Good communications to most parts of the city. It was nice to come back to this quiet area after a long day of sightseeing. Even the beach is reached in about 1,5 hour so we could alternate culture and swimming.
Our family of four (children 12 and 14) had a very nice stay. Marco provided comfortable transport to and from the airport and informed us about essentials in a very professional manner upon arrival.
The only thing that is not clear on the forehand information is that there is no livingroom. It is like having two hotelrooms with a bathroom and a kitchen. But it suited us perfectly!
Three of us stayed in this flat belonging to Marco and had a brilliant time. The flat has a 24 hour bakery on the doorstep, the main bus line going to the city centre and Vatican, has supermarket, bookshops, clothes shops, newsagents, ice cream shop in the immediate vicinity. Having flown into Rome we were told at the airport it was a bad area and very far away. This could not have been further from the truth, the flat was in a great location, with brilliant local amenities close by and excellent travel links. The flat itself was much nicer than we expected and looked brand new, spotless and luxury compared to most of the hotels we stayed in. Wide screen TV was on the wall, good number of sockets and the bathroom was superb.
Marco himself is lovely and proved very helpful to us being first time visitors. He provided us with a detailed map of the area and city centre, explained the bus lines and local shops to us. Gave us a great deal on a transfer service to the airport when departing, much cheaper than all the taxis and car transfers. We would highly recommend this landlord and his apartments.
First of all, we got a 2 room apartment although we paid for a 1 room, with no extra fee! Very nice of the owner! Marco was also very helpful with pointing to us on a map the main city attractions and how to get there. The neighbourhood is very well served by buses and tram that go directly to colloseo, city center, trastevere. There is also a night bus but you have to wait for it. The neighbourhood was nice, a bit noisy in the weekend, but without any issues. Nice people, many students, lots of bars and restaurants. The apartment seems recently refurbished, furniture in good state. A very nice place at 20 mins by bus to city centre and for a good price
First of all, as many reviewers before me have pointed out, the apartment advertised is not in any of the pictures above. These pictures are all of the owners other properties. Nonetheless, the apartment we stayed in was very clean, modernly-designed, and bigger than we expected. There is a kitchen with a stove and oven and the apartment includes pots and pans for cooking. There is also a clothes washing machine which would be convenient if you are staying for a longer period. The apartment consists of basically three rooms: 1) the kitchen/dining/living room, 2) the bedroom, 3) and the bathroom. There is a decently comfortable queen size bed in the bedroom, and a twin bed in the living room. The apartment could easily sleep 3 people. The owner, Marco, was very nice, helpful, and seemed like an honest guy. Upon our arrival, he gave us a map and showed us the buses we could take to get to various attractions. It was very helpful. On the downside, the location is not the best. The surrounding neighborhood is pretty ugly, with a lot of graffiti. It is not as close to Termini station as I would have liked. If you choose to walk (please don't, you will do enough walking in Rome) it takes about 20 minutes to get there. If you take the 71 bus line, you can get to Termini in about 10 minutes. Once you learn how to use the public transportation system, the distance from attractions is not as big of a deal. The biggest negative about this place, however, is that the apartment is on a very busy street, with trams, buses, cars, and ambulances driving by at all times. The apartment is on the first floor (the floor above the ground floor) and it is still pretty noisy inside of the apartment. It's not a big deal during the day, but at night I think it would be near impossible to fall asleep without earplugs. Even with earplugs it was still a little noisy. The ambulances and trams are really loud and shake the building a bit. Luckily we brought some earplugs. The apartment is also across the street from a night club so at night you can also hear loud music coming from there and people talking outside of the apartment. Despite this, the price was great! We ended up paying about 45 euro a night (including cleaning and taxes). So the apartment was a lot better than what I would have expected for the price. Bottom line: if you need a cheap but nice place to stay and are a deep sleeper or willing to wear ear plugs at night this would be a good rental for you.Wehadanamazingtime!
We was in this flat from 30th of December till 07 of January. It was nice experience. The flat is pretty good for staying in Rome, not far away from Termini station (where from you can get any place by train) and not far away from city centre. In period that we was in Rome we does not used any public transport at all because everything is close to the apartament. But because it was winter and floor covered by ceramic tile it was pretty cold inside and central heating sometimes was switched off. In the apartment there is a small kitchen with everything you need to cook.
Ttere is no pics for this flat.
So if you will travel to Rome at winter take with you slippers with wool and warm pajamas and everything will be cool)) Nice place.
La façade de l'immeuble ne laisse pas présager ce qui se trouve à l’intérieur. En effet, après 4 portes avec 4 clés différentes, on arrive dans un studio moderne, propre et confortable, aménagé avec simplicité et bon goût. Il y règne un grand calme et, en plus, on a accès à une grande terrasse très dégagé qui permet de voir entre autre, le ciel romain. C'est idéal pour deux personnes. Nous avons apprécié le fait d'avoir des transports en commun en bas de la rue ou à quelques pas, qui mènent à différents points de la ville. Egalement les commerces de proximité et les nombreux restaurants pour toutes les bourses sont un plus considérable. A remarquer l'accueil, les conseils et la qualité d'écoute de M. Ferracin. Merci et à très bientôt.
It's so funny reading Sophie's post. I had stayed there right after her. I had the same problems but the owner was very kind. The apartment was small but it was just right for my husband and I. As for the hot water, we ran into the owner one day and told him about the water issue. He turned up the thermostat but we didn't consistently get hot water throughout the 2 weeks we were there. When we met the owner, he pulled out a map of Rome to tell us which buses and trams to take to get around Rome. He even showed us where the supermarket was and recommended great local restaurants to go to. It was nice. I really enjoyed my stay.
The flat we stayed in is not in any of the photos although obtained through this page. It was very small and very basic but really everything we needed. It consisted of a small bedroom with double bed, excellent wardrobe (i tend to need good wardrobe space), a breakfast bar/sidetable and a mini fridge freezer. There was also a kitchenette with cooking equipment and crockery, sink and a kind of hot plate/hob thing. I was told originally there would be a microwave but there wasnt. In another room was the bathroom. My only complaint was the shower had a tendancy to change temperature irrationally and the towel rack appeared to be built for giants and at 5,3 i couldnt reach it. Also the bathroom occasionally emitted a strange smell because the fan hadnt been fitted yet.
The apartment is in an excellent location, there are several supermarkets surrounding and plenty of other neccessities including numerous places to eat. Also there is transport leaving from right outside the apartment. The number 19 tram takes you all across rome to right in front of the vatican! The Termini is a short walk away and we even walked to the colosseum as it was only 20 minutes away. It was easy to get everywhere we wanted. The apartment is small and basic but you will spend most of your day not in it so its not an issue and the price was pretty good. Marco is really nice and very helpfully shows you where everything is when you arrive. His english isnt great but my italians non existent and we communicated fine. The flat was clean and cool and we enjoyed it.
Apartment is located nearby center (I mean central station) and is in good shape. Apartment was clean, but for sure there must be a brush or some mope to clean up the floor - especially if you live for longer time. There is space to develope apartment
