Excellent Location, But Unit Needs Work and Not Really for Families.

  • 3 of 5

Overall Impression: Excellent location, the unit itself needs some work and is really ideal for 2, maybe 3, adults, but I do not recommend it for a family as it will be cramped.

We were a family of 3 (2 adults, one 4 year old) visiting from North America.

Pros:

- Walking distance to all major sights. Furthest is the Coliseum and it took 45 minutes to walk, but we took our time.

- Major bus stops are only a 3-5 minute walk

- Kitchen was well stocked with utensils, but lacking essentials such as paper towels, sugar, salt

- Unit has WiFi, fridge, gas stove, washer, sofa bed, plenty of storage

- Sofa Bed allows for more space for sleeping

Cons:

- Communication. Upon arriving at the unit the first day, we could not get a hold of the owner as the phone number provided said the number is not in service. It was raining. Luckily 20 minutes after our meeting time, a friend of his showed up. Even when contacting for unit issues, it took the owner 4 hours to get back to us.

- Bathroom is very small. Kitchen area is also pretty small.

- Water temp in the shower is not consistent. It's either really hot, or really cold. Asked owner to fix, but issue was never resolved.

- About half of the electrical outlets in the unit worked. I had to resort to ironing in the kitchen as that was the only un-used outlet I can find that worked.

- There is only a washer, not a dryer. The washer does really small loads (3 pants, 2 shirts at the most) and takes at least 2 hours for a wash. After washing you need to hang dry somewhere. We ended up using a laundry service that was 10 minutes walk (White Cloud Laundrette .. charges by the load)

- TV is for decoration as no channels were available to watch

- No "mobile WiFi" as stated in other reviews.

- The unit is 3 flights of stairs up. There is no lift/elevator.

- No orientation was provided for the apartment. We were handed the keys and told how to check-out, but when asked how to use the washer, or point us to the closest grocery store, we were told that they didn't know. Didn't show us where the iron was, how to operate AC (which did not work anyways).

- Unit was not ready when we arrived. The cleaner still had an hour's worth of work to be done so we were asked to leave our bags in the unit, but to leave and come back in an hour ... I did mention it was raining outside? Cleaner did not speak a word of English.

Good Overall Experience

  • 4 of 5

Great location, close to all the monuments. Neat and clean apartment but the bathroom was too little for a family of four.

Excellent location and amazingly comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This is one of several properties that I've stayed at in Europe and it's definitely the best. The location is perfect, the bed was amazingly comfortable, the AC in both bedroom and living area was a life saver in July, and the apartment was clean. Another added bonus is that the wifi is portable so you don't have to use your data plan when roaming the streets of Rome. Lele and Andreas were very accommodating and easy to work with. I highly recommend this location!

Lovely, Comfortable, & Great location

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Lele for your excellent hospitality! We had an excellent stay in the Villa Giulia apartment. It is an easy walk across the Tiber to Vatican City, and equally as quick and easy to big sights in the historical center, such as Piazza Navona, the Pantheon, etc. The neighborhood is very quiet and there are loads of bars for a coffee, a bite to eat, or apperitivo. Grocery stores, pharmacies, etc. are also nearby. The apartment was very comfortable and clean, and Lele was gracious and very willing to answer questions, offer suggestions, etc. He even arranged for our airport transfer. Thanks so much! I can't wait to visit again!

Fabulous Location in Historical Rome

  • 5 of 5

Great customer service from Lele ... from check-in, to sightseeing and restaurant suggestions to arranging a professional car service to take us to the airport at the end of our stay. Apartment is in ideal location to visit historical hot-spots: Vatican, Campo Fiori, Trevi Fountain and Piazza Navonna to name a few. Comfortable bedroom has lots of storage space and living/dining room is spacious. Kitchen is small but has everything you need. Bathroom small with new fixtures. Shower has nice, hot water! Great spot to relax and rest after day of sightseeing before heading out again for evening activities. Quiet neighborhood at night. Portable WiFi was appreciated. Lele was always available via WhatsApp so that is a bonus. Will definitely stay here again. Love the Via Giulia area.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

I had a very nice stay. Highly recommend this apartment. Really loved the portable Wi-fi unit. Bed was extremely comfortable, pull out sofa would be okay for children. Lele gave good suggestions about the grocery store.
