John Luca is a very nice and helpful host. the location could not be better. and felt completely safe on walks at night. overlooks the forum. awesome view of rome from rooftop. bathroom are new and clean. breakfast fixins included but you have to cook it and clean up after. and for travelers on a budget, saving on the expense of eating out every night can mean big bucks. local markets have all you need to make a nice meal in the clean and adequate kitchen. Beautiful old building and antique furniture. A/C works and very quiet.
My ONLY complaint, and i am not alone on this, is the extremely hard and uncomfortable mattresses. i was very sorry that multiple folded wool blankets did very little to improve them.
i am easily pleased and do not expect a tempur pedic bed, i do at the least need an adequately restful nights sleep which was impossible to get on these mattresses. Please John Luca, invest in some foam or feather bed covers. I would love to book a month here but only if the mattress problem is addressed.
