Location was great with easy walking to all key sights. Lots of eating places nearby. Only issue we had was with the heating as we couldn’t increase it. Seemed to be set and locked. I didn’t contact the owner so my fault as it could have been sorted. When recommend this place to stay.
thank you, we would have helped you if you called us
Traveled here with my wife and are two girls 2 and 3 years old, the location is perfect lots of little restaurants that all welcomed families and only ten min walk from collasium.
This apartment was in such an amazing location, 10mins walk from the colosseum and about 15/20mins from the other attractions. The apartment itself is extremely clean but a little dated. Needs a new kettle, purchase of a toaster and check up on the water pressure in the showers and the plug sockets in the bedrooms. Lady who checked us in was lovely, very helpful and knowledgeable. I would definitely stay here again.
Dear guest, thanks for the suggestions, we have already fixed all the issues you've mentioned. Kind regards
Spacious and Convenient Monti Apartment
Enjoyed a week staying in this Monti apartment. It is well situated in the heart of Rome in a charming old neighborhood with many nice restaurants and shops. It is walking distance to the Fora and Colosseum as well as Santa Maria Maggiore and many other beautiful early Christian churches like Prudenziana and Prassedere. It is spacious and has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with a large living room and decent sized kitchen, so was perfect for two women traveling together. It is generally quiet in the building and on the top floor (elevator access). There is a staircase outside where the kids like to hang out on weekends under the master bedroom window but closing the window helped, and in the mornings some construction noise could be heard in the building, but neither were a problem. There is no traffic noise from Via Cavour (miraculous). There is air conditioning that my roommate liked, but once she left, I found leaving the windows open was perfectly comfortable in October making the air not necessary and it was quiet enough to do so.
A management company does the bookings and they handled things well, including helping with transport to the airport upon departure for a reasonable price with pick-up right outside the door on Via Clementina. Taxis can get to the property too, despite much of the area being in a pedestrian zone. The apartment was clean, but we would recommend a deep cleaning since there was a little mold in the bathrooms and some of the dishes in the cupboards were dirty and disorganized, despite the dishwasher. My traveling companion said the hot water in her bathroom was inadequate and we never heard back about what to do about it (she was only there 2 days), but the master bath hot water worked fine and I enjoyed the large bathtub enormously for a nice soak after much walking around the city. We would also recommend replacing the toilet seats with basic models, as the combination bidet thing is not so good. Also, Rome is now recycling and separating trash (terrific), but there were no in-apartment containers to help us manage this and we had to walk several blocks to find the bins and do this ourselves (owners handled this at the other properties where we stayed). There is a certain impersonal feel when staying at a managed property and it lacks the tender loving care that we experienced in other personally-owned and -operated properties, but I found it to be a great choice for a Rome stay and recommend it.
The location is great. Apartment is as advertised. It is clean and although older well mainlained. It would benefit from the installation of a toaster, microwave and a North American style coffee maker.
Brilliant place, perfect for two couples. The washing machine wasn’t working and we should have been told about this at check in. Also there had been no mention of a cleaning fee [€20 pp] In any of the booking correspondence. Great place though!!
It is in this area with its millenary monuments and fascinating ruins that you can follow the footsteps of imperial Rome. The Palatine Hill, the Circus Maximus, and the immense Imperial Forums make us take a step back and relive the life of the Romans at the time of the empire. High above the Forums stands one of the seven hills of Rome, the Campidoglio, where today the offices of the mayor of Rome and the Capitoline Museums reside. The Colosseum is undoubtedly the focal point of the area, the most important symbol of Rome welcoming thousands of visitors every year. The district is very wide and varied: from the areas of intensive urbanization of the nineteenth century (like the one between the Viminale and the Quirinale) to the archaeological park consisting of the Colle Oppio area - Colosseum - Ludus Magnus - Forum of Nerva - Forum and Markets of Trajan. The Rione Monti, the area around Via Nazionale and Via Cavour is particularly picturesque and very popular: it is worth taking a walk along via del Boschetto, via dei Serpenti, via Panisperna and Via Baccina, streets full of craft shops, trendy shops and characteristic places. The center of the nightlife is the small square of the Madonna dei Monti, near the church of the same name, which also serves as an aggregation center for local residents and occasional visitors.
