The apartment was a great size and had everything we needed, and in a fab location all the main attractions were in walking distance and the metro was just yards up the road to get to the Vatican. there was plenty of nice restaurants in walking distance As soon as we arrived we were met by Julia who was lovely walked us around the apartment and gave us advice on the best days to go to the Vatican and coliseum and best ways to get to them which was very helpful and arranged out pick up back to the airport.

We, as a family of 3 people, decided to visit Rome for a special birthday. The location of the apartment was perfect in central Rome with an acceptable walk to the main attractions that the city had to offer. However, the apartment was very disappointing in its appearance and amenities. Situated on the 3rd floor of a 5 floor block with an unreliable lift to make the journey up the 3 floors to our apartment.
When we arrived at the apartment on the first day we were met at the apartment by the rep and were shown round the apartment, ensuring that we were aware of how to reset the electricity if it should trip off. Great start to a relaxing holiday!!!
When it came to breakfast on the 1st morning we discovered that we could not have the 2 ring cooker, the toaster and the kettle on at the same time as the fuse couldn't take that volume of use.
We also discovered that only one of the televisions had an English language channel, BBC World Service only,
When we returned home having the seen the reality of the apartment and looked back at the marketing materials closely, we have come to the conclusion that the management photos do not accurately reflect the condition of the apartment. Pictures available on this website have clearly been stretched to make rooms appear bigger than they really are, which is clearly evident in the kitchen picture with the green chairs and the super long wash hand basin in the bathroom picture.
If we had been offered a flight home to the UK on the day we arrived we may well have accepted. I would not recommend this apartment to anyone.
Rome itself was excellent and the people were friendly and welcoming and would visit again in the future, but would definitely stay somewhere else.

SCENT OF ROME E... S, Direttore generale at Scent of Rome, responded to this reviewResponded 16 January 2017

Dear Guest,
We are truly sorry for your disappointment and described negative experience.
In particular, if you had contacted our staff for your doubts and discomfort during the stay we could be helpful to you, allowing us to quickly solve the arisen problems.

As for the elevator, as you can see on our website, the building where the apartments are located is the oldest of Via Nazionale and the elevator it is a historical and characteristic element. This definitely does not go to the detriment of security: can carry up to 4 people or 300 kg, it is maintained regularly and checked that all its parts are in compliance with local regulations.

About the check in, we want to clarify that we consider normal for the staff concerned to explain all the guests not only the basic information on the technical aspects of the apartment, but also some useful information in case of emergencies so guests to act promptly, as they would at home. Sorry this is an alarming result instead of being perceived as useful.

Entering then specifically of his comments related to housing, we want to reiterate our regret in not having received any notice during the stay because we believe that this was easily solved problems:
- for example the television system is unique for all devices so this description seems to have been a blurring of programming;
- also, what you also considered it to be an overload problem was simply due to the intervention of the "life-saving" device, mandated by law. The system makes it possible to use several devices at once, including air conditioning in the summer, and no customer has previously had any overload problem.

We conclude by responding to your feedback on the photos. We regret that the areas of the apartment where you stayed have been perceived as small, but we want to say that it is not our intention to distort the information, indeed! On the website we have published detailed descriptions of the apartment and the individual environments (for example, the apartment is a total of 140sqm and two bedrooms measure over 25 square meters each). We have also provided - the maximum transparency - the planimetry to allow all visitors to be aware of the spaces.
We trust that our explanations were exhaustive.
Best regards
Scent of Rome

We had a great time at this apartment. It's very well located, close to the train station. It's a beautiful apartment, with lots of reunion room. Beds were very comfortable. The kitchen could have more cutlery, but they were nice enough to bring the things we needed

The apartment was very attractive and the location was good, but:
The shower did not work well and the toilet did not always flush
The wardrobes rattled every time a bus or truck drove by, which was often, including in the night
We were shown into an apartment that had not been cleaned at 11 am.
Trash was left on the stairs for three days, spilling contents where we had to walk and adding the smell of rotting to the scents of Rome.
Supplies were minimal.

Room Tip: The wifi only works in some areas of the apartment.
