The apt. was wonderful! First of all, the location was perfect! We were able to walk to everything. Secondly, the apt. was clean, and had everything we needed in it. Thank you for the privilege of staying there. Perfect for a couple.
Perfect, lovely, centrally located apartment to explore Rome
We stayed in Giacomo's Polluce apartment for 3 nights while in Rome and it could not have been better. The apartment itself is small but so well laid out that it felt quite spacious and private. It was lovely, with high ceilings, interesting artwork, and comfortable and tasteful furnishings. It was a wonderful place to just come back to, kick off ones shoes, and relax with a book and glass of wine before heading out again. The kitchen was well appointed and the appliances all in fine condition. A small washing machine was an added bonus (we were biking the previous week in Umbria and really put it to use)! But the best feature is the incredible location. It was literally walking distance to everything in Rome--from the Vatican, Trevi Fountain, Pantheon, the Coliseum, fantastic food and everything Roman. I would stay there again in a heartbeat.
Wonderful location in the heart of Ancient Rome. Lovely apartment.
Great location central to every major site in Rome. Charming apartment with lots of windows. Small but usable kitchen which we cooked in daily. Wonderful bakery & local matkets at Camp de Fiori nearby. Intermittent wifi makes e-mail a challenge as only 1 user can be on each line at a time. Giacomo is a very helpful host.
Fabulous location, well equipped and comfortable, responsive/helpful owner!
Lovely apartment, comfortable, fully equipped. Giacomo very helpful and responsive. The location is ideal, no need for taxis, busses, everything is easily walkable: Pantheon, Trastevere, Vatican. Convenient supermarkets and all you need! Highly recommend the apartment. And many thanks to Giacomo for his attentive assistance! You will love staying here!
Great location in the heart of Rome
This is an excellent location, centrally located and within walking distance to everything you want to see in Rome. There is a decent market just a block away for daily shopping. The unit was clean and modern, just a bit quirky in the layout as you would expect in the top floor of an old building. There is an elevator but note that you still have to carry your luggage another 1 1/2 floors to get to the apartment. There is a small balcony with a table and chairs were we ate all of our meals. Nothing special in the view, just the rooftops of the surrounding area, but it was nice to have an outside space. The owner was very professional to deal with and everything went very smooth.
In terms of location we rate the apartment with 5 stars. The apartment itself was excellent and as expected. However certain features keep me from giving a full 5 star review. Security at the apartment was excellent. The elevator worked beautifully to the third floor. We were advised that there were stairs to apartment; a total of 29 steps; not steep but they may pose an issue for some. Entrance to the apartment is on the bedroom/bath level and then there are stairs to the living/dinning/kitchen/balcony. The stairs are easy to access and secure with a good railing. The living area was very comfortable as was the small balcony which is equipt with a small table and chairs. The kitchen was great but we did not use it much, although I did use the washer. (Good but takes time.) The bedroom is small and comfortable. The bed itself is low to the floor making it a bit difficult for us "older" folk to get up from. But these are all minor concerns. The beauty of this apartment is its location. A ten minute walk to the Parthenon, the Forum and Piazza Venezia, the Ghetto and Campo dei Fiori. A slightly longer walk to the Trevi Fountain. And because of its nearness, all these sites can and should be seen in the evening or at night when the tourists have dispersed. Excellent transportation is literally around the corner. Our host Giacomo was charming and knowledgeable. For a slightly younger couple or a small family this could be a 5 star experience.
