Perfect location as a one off
It's in the heart of Imperial Rome. That's both good and bad. The good: if you want to do, say, night time tours of the Forums or the Colosseum (highly recommended) you just cross the road. The bad is that you'll be hard pressed to find authentic local eateries nearby. For the most part they're tourist traps. You'd get better food outside the city centre, but it's less convenient. It's a trade off.
There's a well stocked mini supermarket on a street just down from the far end of the Coloseeum.
I'll get the few negatives out of the way first.
The check in process was a bit fiddly; I was asked to fill in a check in form on Google Docs including information like expected time of arrival and expected train... and then received a message on the day of arrival asking for exactly the same thing. On arrival there was an awful lot of form filling (by hand), when we just wanted to unpack and get on with the holiday. The process was courteous; it could just do with some streamlining.
Remember to take enough cash to cover the city tax. (That's a government rule.)
The internet wasn't running when we arrived, but a replacement "pocket modem" was supplied. However it tended to be intermittent in its availability.
There was some deeply embedded mould in the grout of the bathrooms which bothered some of us more than others, but aside from that they were still very clean. The showers have no soap holders, which isn't convenient.
Now the good. The location, obviously. The standard of cleaning overall was very good. I considered the beds to be comfortable, and there was plenty of linen for everyone.
The kitchen is very small (one person at a time can fit) but that's normal for the area and it was well equipped. There is no dish washer, but there is a front loading clothes washer which was a fiddly sod of a thing to use and on one occasion locked a load of clothes in overnight. However when it worked it worked well, and when we had the problem the owners were very responsive and sent someone to help the following morning.
I'd add that as a positive; the owner responsiveness was extremely good. It's mostly done via WhatsApp so I'd recommend having that installed.
The proximity to the metro system (Colosseo station line B) is excellent, but you should be aware that for the rest of 2019 that line will be subject to early closures and complete shut downs on the weekend relating to the construction of Line C.
In a nutshell: Highly recommended.
Best for short stays
This is great for one family. Would not recommend for two families. Need a place to dry your clothes if you plan to wash for an extended stay. The location is good if you don’t mind a little walk to some of the sites.
The apartment was in a perfect location for touring the sites of Rome. Orlando was very prompt for our check in and helpful when the AC didn’t work. The only downside to the apartment was a shortage of hot water in the showers and the poorly stocked kitchen. The location made up for any short comings.
Rome colosseum visit
Wonderful location, So central, especially with kids. Check in was amazing as was checkout. Would highly recommend it.
Orlando and his sister were really helpful. Loved the location of the condo. There are 2 armed guards outside so we always felt very safe.
Great location near the Colosseum, many restaurants and the metro station. Clean and comfortable apartment. Small showers but good water pressure and plenty of hot water. Orlando greeted us and recommended Carbonara for dinner- an excellent local choice. Armed guards at the door to the complex were very friendly and always greeted us- very secure apartment in a great neighborhood. It reached 97 degrees during our stay but the AC kept it nice and cool.
The district 'Rione Monti' one of the oldest in Rome and the first district of Rome, home to some of the most characteristic places of the city and given the proximity to the subway station in Via Cavour is considered one of the most accessible of Rome.
The area is actually an extremely lively location to stay. It is possible to have speedy access to the unique city activities, attractions and tours. In addition to this, the location is also considered the center of the present day Roman life. The unique narrow streets, and the characteristic architectures, are making this area one of the most attractive of Rome.
