Great place, excellent location, excellent service and quality of rental. Our only criticism is that bed was too firm for our liking. Otherwise the room was as advertised. Well equipped and modern. Lots of great restaurants and services within the immediate area. Close to the Coliseum and San Giovanni and especially the metro and tram stop, both of which were about 100 meters away. We could get to major attractions in very little time. Then we could retire to a neighbourhood with amenities, a local feel and great atmosphere, restaurants and prices that were not like the tourist traps!
Let me start with the fact that I booked the "blue" studio so this is a reflection on the blue one. Location was nice and convenient close to the metro stop. And that is the main pro of this place. It's small even for a studio. It's roughly the size of an average euro hotel minus all the hotel amenities and more dated. An extra fee of about 100 euros was added because I checked in after midnight. I could go on, but to sum it all up this place didnt have the charm of apartment renting. Not that I was expecting a bottle of wine or some cookies, but I personally didn't feel at ease. It wasn't BAD but for the same price I stayed at a hotel not too far away and it was much nicer and they actually had a balcony with a view (of another building but still a balcony non the less)
We enjoyed staying at Manzoni so much! The location was excellent for both people who love to stroll through town, and people who love to convenience of public transportation. The Metro station is literally less than a 5-minute walk for us. Yet, my boyfriend and I actually loved the walk from the flat to the rest of the sight-seeing/ attractions. It allowed us to eat as much as we wanted with the extra walking to everywhere.
Paolo thoroughly walked us through the amenities of the flat, local supermarket, and routes to take for our trips! And gave us excellent advise on where to obtain a SIM card, how much to tip! I only have great things to rave about Paolo! And we already made up our mind that we would only stay at Paolo's when we return to Rome! And we are telling every one of our friends about Paolo's place and his hospitality - a home in Rome!
A second mirror would be extremely helpful. As it stands, only one person at a time can get ready for the day.
