The apartment was spacious and well-equipped. The owner was very responsive when we needed anything. If you're focused on the Vatican the location is excellent. If you're going to be spending most of your time downtown in the tourist area, this may not be for you, however. It's easy enough to get around with the 64 bus stop just down the street. But once you go you're pretty much committed. If you want to come back to the apartment to rest you kill almost an hour getting back and forth and coming back to the apartment the buses were almost always packed tight. But the biggest thing you need to know before renting this apartment is that the street side, including the second bedroom is extremely loud because of noise from the street (including garbage trucks after midnight). It does not make for a restful night's sleep.
