What attracted me to this apartment in the first place, was the wonderful location and the architectural details as shown in the pictures. Both did not disappoint! The thick walls and stone floors helped to keep the house cool, though the 41C heatwave in Rome did warrant the airconditioners after all. As soon as the heatwave passed, I could sleep with open windows and be comfortable - the city noise was the same as living in Brooklyn. The small square downstairs had a great restaurant, and two café's from which you could comfortably observe Summer life in the old city. I walked easily to the Pantheon, Trevi Fountain, and of course, the Vatican. It's also easy to reach by car. Emanuele was a wonderful host whom I got to meet due to a leaking airconditioner that was promptly fixed. I can also recommend the car-service that picks you up from the airport, as it was nice to have a driver waiting with a name-sign at arrival; the price is the same as by local taxi. The Internet proved a bit erratic at times, but my children have very high Internet standards, as well. For a future Roman holiday I would immediately contact Emanuele again, as I loved this apartment!
The apartment was wonderful, cleaned well, had a variety of spaces and mostly, is located centrally to major attractions; very close to the Castell St. Angelo bridge. Leaning out our windows, I could see the first statue on that bridge. 3 small restaurants / sidewalk cafes were just downstairs, all with good service and great Italian food / drinks. Our family rented the apartment for about 2 weeks and greatly enjoyed our stay. Emanuele and Sara, property managers, were always available and very helpful when we needed help. We were met at the property with keys and shown all we needed to know about it. We are all in our 50's - 60's and although the stairs are numerous, they were not an issue. Grazie !
