Sam contacted us before our arrival and through him we booked a transfer from the Airport direct to the apartment which was great as we arrived in the evening time.
On arrival, Sam greeted us, showed us to our apartment and spent 10-15 minutes with us giving us guidance on what to see and do, restaurants and how to get around Rome. It was invaluable advice and we were able to make the most of short few days in Rome.
The apartments themselves are lovely, clean, furnished well, lots of space and a decent shower! They are a short walk to the Metro which we used everyday to head in to the centre. There is a bus available outside the apartments and it seemed to be pretty regular although we usually walked the short distance to the metro.
These apartments are excellent value and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.
Sam was lovely, really helpful and with his advice we were able to squeeze in all the major sights!
I would recommend getting the transfer though, the apartments are a little out of the city center and I'm not sure if we could have found them having arrived after 8p.m. - It was nice to be dropped off at the door!
