“Amazing Location, Very Nice Apartment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2012

Four of us stayed in this apartment, which is what made it a good deal. The apartment has one bed and one pull-out couch, and it’s definitely cheaper than two hotel rooms in this part of Rome. Of course, it’s a pretty small apartment, so you’ll be sharing limited space with another couple (or that was the case for us).

First, Paola, the owner (info@romanticainn.com), was extremely helpful. She and I probably exchanged 25 emails before we ever checked in because I was trying to set up a way for my parents to check in with her before we arrived. She was always happy to help and made the planning process very easy. She also accepted PayPal for the deposit, which was very helpful.

The apartment is a 2-minute walk from the Forum and 5 minutes from the Colosseum. Even cooler, you take 100 steps toward the nearby Piazza Madonna dei Monti and turn the corner, and suddenly the Colosseum is standing grandly at the end of the street. It’s pretty incredible, especially for first-time visitors.

The apartment has several amenities, including a well-stocked kitchen (sauce pans, strainers, coffee maker, tea, coffee, fridge, toaster, and even pasta and sauce). It also has a clothes washing machine and electric rack dryer. The dining table is nice, and she provides maps and literature for guests. Beds were comfortable, and she provided plenty of linens and pillows, as well as hotel-quality towels and even two bathrobes. She had wifi, a small laptop, several electric adapters, an iron and ironing board, and a small bookshelf. There was good hot water in the shower, but the temperature fluctuated greatly from very hot to very cold. It was rarely consistent. The water pressure in the shower was fine, but definitely not in the toilet, which was problematic for flushing.

The surrounding area is beautiful and quiet, as was the apartment building. There were several pizzerias nearby, and a couple of small grocery stores so that we were able to cook in most nights.

Paola was always in communication, and even dropped off some small souvenirs, apologizing for the recent rain in Rome. Her customer service really made us feel at home, which isn’t always the case with apartment rentals.

Living in Asia, it’s hard to spend this much on an apartment, but comparing it to hotel rooms, we found that for four people it was the best deal. And again, we couldn’t have been happier with the location. I highly recommend the apartment. And Rome remains one of my favorite cities in the world.

I stayed in this apartment for 42 days over December and January. It was very good value for Rome prices… comfortable and Paola was extremely friendly and helpful. It is also in a very convenient location, within easy walking distance of the Colosseum, Cavour station, Termini station, the opera theatre and many other parts of Rome.

The apartment is tastefully and thoughtfully decorated. It is clean and very well equipped. We were able to cook a couple of meals in the nice kitchen, and the wine bars down the street were charming. Paola could not have been more welcoming and helpful. The location is fantastic for people who are interested in Rome's historical sights: the Forum, the Coliseum, etc.

This apartment is a studio and it is very comfortable and quiet and its also a stone's throw from the best sites in Rome, including the Forum and the Colosseum. There are all the utilities you need including a washing machine, internet via a key and the bed was very comfortable. The landlord is welcoming and very helpful and we had a wonderful time here.
Near the appartment there are a number of great restaurants (fantastic Indian too!) and bars and the main Piazza of Monti has a great aperitivo place. There was also an English Bookshop nearby and a Cinema 15 minutes walk away that had films in English.

We visited Rome for 3 nights in August with our 2 boys. The apartment was in an excellent location for the ancient city and metro and buses. To be honest we walked most places............even the Vatican City! A lovely sunny apartment with EVERYTHING you need and more! Our 2 boys (aged 10 and 8) loved it, it was handy to come back to in the heat of the day too! A wide range of lovely restaurants all within walking distance, especially the pizza place directly opposite, would definately recommend! Paola was very helpful and welcoming. Would certainly stay again if ever lucky enough to return to Rome.

Paola was very friendly & had thought of everything, some of which you may not expect to get in a rented flat. Bottled drinking water. milk, coffee, tea, jam. nutella, internet connection. We would stay again if we returned to Rome. The location is very central just near to Via Cavour, the Colleseo & the underground. Excellente!
