This was our first and very anticipated trip to Rome. Our dealings with the managers of the apartment prior to and using are stay we're outstanding, the accommodation though a huge let down.

We were placed in a extremely compact apartment on the outside of the building, the inner courtyard that looked so appealing was a far cry form our outlook. Our outside sitting area was a makeshift courtyard if you could call it that that, and looked directly onto scaffolds and black builders netting, an alleyway ran past it which was frequently used by the noisy neighbors with young children and offered no pivacy whatsoever ever.

The apartment was dark and dingy, and really dirty. The bathroom smelt, at first I thought it was roman drains, but on further inspection it was collective scum in between the toilet and shower area, a bathroom mat on the floor looked as though it had been there forever, and the dirt and dust that had collected in teh corners of the apartment a further testament to the fact that this place just gets surface cleaning.Although we were told a cleaner came every day the shower didn't get cleaned every day and everything still looked grubby.

The kitchen area was tiny and more akin to something you would find on small boat, compact in the extreme.

It was extremely disappointing as we had booked the place for a week, the place was very uncomfortable for a family of four the relaxing seating was one very uncomfortable couch and a dinning room table, to use the fourth chair you had to pull the whol table out in a tiny area as it was anyway, so breakfasted in shifts! Not that we ate much there anyway.

The setting of the apartments, a long way from the city. Considering the best way to get to see Rome is by walking, the added hassle of catching a tube or decent bus drive back to the apartment and another long walk was tiring. I think we could have got so much more out of our trip had we stayed closer to the city and broken our day up with return trips to our accommodation especially as we had two teenage kids in tow. It might have meant that we would have spent more time in Rome during the evening which was magical, but hard to do both day and night in the city from this location.

As lovely as you're Sam and kate, the managers of this apartment complex, I would not recommend it and wouldn't stay here again.
