“Good Apartment, Excellent Location”
Reviewed 20 December 2011 for a stay in December 2011

Located in an excellent location away from the tourist hub. The tourist areas are just busy and this apartment makes it easier to enjoy Rome. Just 5/10 mins walk from the Vatican and 10 mins from other areas, this fully modernised apartment is perfect for anyone who's looking for something central.

The apartment does come with Broadband, but y ou have to make Maria aware that you want it. I was fortunate to ask her during my stay which she kindly sent the router/Mi-Fi over.

The TV is only about 15", which is the only let down, but only if you're here for a longer period. The price you pay is definitely worth every cent but with the TV issue, better quality towels and a modern fitted kitchenette this would be a dream 5* apartment.

“Authentic apartment in Rome”
Reviewed 25 October 2011 for a stay in October 2011

people found this review helpful

The apartment looks just like the pictures. The only surprise was the size of the kitchen, about the same in area as an average closset. It did have what you needed though, including a microwave, but no oven. The bedroom was comfortable with adequate storage, and the living room was delightful. My spouse complained about the toilet being only a few inches from the edge of the tub, you had to sit sideways. There was no wireless internet.
The location is about 10 blocks from Campo dei fiori, a comfortable walk or a great ride on the electric bus that ran down Via Gulia regularly. It felt like we were where the real Romans lived, very few tourists.
I would definitely stay there again except for the bars on the windows. They were fixed in position and could not be opened in case of fire; and there was only one entrance up a flight of stairs.

“We fell in love with Orbitelli Love”
Reviewed 5 October 2011 for a stay in September 2011

When we were researching options for staying in Rome, we wanted something that was in walking distance to the main sights in Rome, as well as a place quiet enough to relax in after a long day of sightseeing. We chose Orbitelli Love for a number of reasons: great location, separate bedroom and living area, non smoking, washing machine in the apartment, air conditioning, large, bright windows, a kitchen, and a great traditional feel so we knew we were in Rome and not the suburbs of our own city.

We were not disappointed. The unit is very close to the Vatican, but on the east side of the canal. There is a bank machine and a great market, both within a 5-minute walk. It is 3 minutes from the bus stop on Corso Vittorio Emanuele II, one of the main streets that connect the Vatican to the heart of Rome and most other key sights.

It was bright, clean, quiet, well equipped, and had all the amenities you could want -- except for the Internet connection. When we could not find any way to connect or sign of a password, we phoned the owner who told us she would have to drive in to her office to get a USB stick and bring it to us the next day. Once we had the stick and the password, we had to download special software from the local telco to our laptops, but still neither of us could get it to work despite being adept at configuring network connections.

Other than the lack of Internet and a second set of bed linens for the foldout bed in the living room, Orbitelli Love was everything we were looking for and a comfortable place to call home each night as we returned home after long days of sightseeing.
