We stayed in this apartment for 1 week with 5 adults (1 family of four and a family friend). The apartment is on the first floor so it was easy to get to and haul luggage into. The bedrooms are a great size, comfortable, all rooms had air conditioning. There were 2 bathrooms (1 ensuite off the main and 1 shared bathroom) that were in good working order. We enjoyed how close everything was to the apartment - we walked easily to the Colloseum, the main train station, the Republic square, the Trevi fountain, many museums. It was perfect.
Some things to keep in mind for travellers:
1) the apartment does have people hanging around in the street but that's because the train station is near and so is a church run soup kitchen. Never once though did we feel unsafe. The front door is secured and the apartment door is more fortified than any door I've ever seen. So no worries there.
2) the living area is quite small. It didn't bother us because we spent most of our time out and about but if you're the kind of people to cook a meal and sit around of an evening and watch movies or whatever, it is a small area for 5 adults. In saying that, we just comfortably arranged ourselves at the kitchen table and we weren't bothered in the slightest, but it might be a problem for some kinds of travellers.
However, for us, this apartment was perfect. The location was awesome, it was safe and comfortable and the people running it (Nino and Josette were away on holiday but Raul and Angelina took care of us for them) were so welcoming and organised. They were on time to meet us, made sure we knew they were there if we needed them but left us be also. They gave great advice about how to get around and where to eat. We were really very happy with this apartment and would stay there again.
First, I am late in submitting this review as I didn't realize it was here.
I brought a group of five people to Rome for four nights, and we stayed in this apartment partly because of its location and partly because of its size. There are three good-sized bedrooms and two baths, which was fine for six adults.
The apartment was clean, the beds comfortable, and home goods (kitchen and bathroom) sufficient.
The apartment is on a street next to Termini Station, and yes, there are a lot of people of all kinds hanging around there. I never felt unsafe in the apartment even when everyone else was out and I had to go somewhere by myself. Yes, there are four locks on the doors, but I haven't been in an apartment anywhere in Italy where there were fewer than three, so this didn't bother me. Also, there is a door from the street into the building, so there is an added bit of security.
The one minor negative is that there aren't enough seats for six adults in the living area unless some of them sit at the kitchen table.
We rented this apartment for Our extended family, 2 mature couples & one mature single. My husband & I have visited Rome several times over the years & like to be near Termini as it's handy to the buses, shopping & the metro as well as the main Railway station. At a short walk from Termini this was perfect for us. Although some people may be disconcerted by the rough sleepers etc in this area we had no problems at all, but you need a common sense approach to the security of your personal belongings.
The apartment is in an old villa that has been recently converted. The only criticism I'd have is that there is little lounging/ shared area due to the large bedrooms.
Nino the property manager was there to greet us & explain the security etc.speaks excellent English & was very pleasant.

This apartment was located near Termini but you had to walk over homeless people, vagrants and creepy shop keepers. There was graphiti everywhere. There were 4 locks on our door to our apartment (which really concerned all of us). The owners had brought out a "roll away bed" which was not made for an adult but more like a child. The first night the bed broke. We call the owner and he was responsive and then brought another "roll away bed" that was held together with tape. We were not happy with this and then the owner then borrowed a bed from a neighbor that was more substancial. The apartment is not located in the best of neighbor hoods and we did not feel safe after dark there.
This apartment was lovely, nicely furnished, comfortable beds, nice hot water in the showers and air conditioning in each room. Very close to Termini station which makes access to everywhere easy. Nino was very helpful and easy to contact if we had questions.Communal area is small, only a 2 seater sofa along with dining table, but since we spent most of our time out and about this didn't matter. Was disappointed that food stocks were simply a bottle of water which fell short of promised juices and snacks. There was also no desktop pc but I had my laptop. Wifi was good but temperamental.
