“Cool, chic flat in very hot Rome with an exceptionally lovely landlady”
Reviewed 22 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We have just returned from 6 days in Rome (staying in this lovely flat) – in the height of summer, 35C outside but cool inside due to the well-functioning air conditioning and the cool inner courtyard from which you enter this apartment. I would definitely stay there again, the apartment is in a fantastic location, literally a 2 min walk from the Camp Di Fiori, and a 10 min walk from Piazza Navona, with restaurants and bars nearby and a small supermarket and bakery with a 2 minute walk. The apartment is fabulous, it is exactly as described in the details provided, and the pictures show it exactly as it is, it is beautifully decorated, has everything you need and is very secure. The kitchen has a fridge freezer, dishwasher and washing machine, coffee makers etc. etc. and the owner is incredibly nice, very clear in her pre-arrival communication, and she very kindly left us some coffee and some breads for our arrival as we arrived on a public holiday. All linens are provided and there are plenty of towels. It really is lovely.
In terms of location, it is also just off the square Largo Torre Argentina from where you can get the no. 8 tram to Piazza Venezia, and #87 bus to Colosseum/Forum, it is another 1 minute walk to Corso Vitorio Emanuelle II – which has regular busses (no. 64) to and from the Vatican. If you need to buy tickets for the bus (but I would strongly recommend that you buy in advance from the tourist information at the airport on arrival) none of the Tabaccheria (sp?) stores nearby sold tickets / were open when we needed tickets, however there is a mini-market, just by the entrance to Via dei Chiavari on the corner with Corso Vitorio Emanuelle II, where you can buy the 1 hour bus tickets.
Things that we didn't know before we arrived.
1) Both bedrooms are on the 1st floor but are not connected to each other. Each has its own separate staircase, one leading up from the lounge, and the other leading up from the entry passageway. The staircase to the second bedroom (from the entry passageway) is a very very tight spiral and would not be good for children or anyone unsteady on their feet. Each bedroom has an attached bathroom, the bedroom leading up from the lounge has an en-suite; the other bedroom is connected to the other bathroom by the tight spiral staircase. However, the spiral staircase bedroom and bathroom are completed self-contained with a door that closes off that part of the house – making it good for 2 couples. There is air-conditioning in all rooms and they are very effective units – and not at all noisy.
2) The taxi may not be able to drop you to the entrance to the apartment as it is very narrow and cobbled and you may have to walk about 1 minute along the cobbled road to reach the apartment
