Top floor apartment in Florentine look alike building, with 12 apartments. Nice, clean, safe, 3 metro stops from Termini. We booked this apartment for two, for which it is very suitable. Four can sleep but leaves little privacy then. The apartment was neat and clean and all appliances mentioned in the ad were working well (WIFI too!). It was recently furnished or redone, and has a modern look and feel. The kitchen outfit is very good, though Englishmen need to take their teapot and toaster. There are 2 Italian coffeemakers, which we highly appreciated. We bought fresh bread every morning at the Carrefour supermarket one block away. There are many shops at Plaza Bologna, a 10' walk. The environment is really nice, the terrace is huge (pity you cannot see this on the pictures), you can take breakfast in the morning, and it has sun all day. The apartment is on the backside of the building, so this guarantees quiet nights and a pretty view on gardens all around. Other buildings are far enough away not te be of nuisance. The neighbourhood is clean and nice, many stately buildings, embassies etc. Bus and metro in walking distance. Next to Torlonia Park, with Limonaia restaurant, recommended for a day far from the madding crowds (only Italians there).
The owner was very helpful, always contactable by phone; her sister lives in the same building and was friendly and helpful too. The building is perfectly safe from outsiders, we left our valuables, IDs, money, credit cards, etc in the apartment during the day. Impossible to get in without keys (5 doors to open with 5 different keys before you are in!). There is a cute elevator, dating back to the beginning of the 20th C.
We enjoyed our stay very much and would certainly go back there next time we visit Rome.
