Our week-long stay in an apartment was great. The apartment was on the second floor, above a delicatezza and overlooking Campo de Fiori where the bustling daytime market and carnival-like night time atmosphere means you felt immersed in the area almost immediately.
And what a great base to explore from - walk to the Vatican, stroll across the river to the fabulous foodie heaven that is Trastevere, duck across the main road to Piazza Navone and embark on a late night stroll to the Pantheon and Trevi fountain, or just wander through the maze of ancient side streets with there numerous hole-in-the-wall bars and restaurants, shops and cafes.
The apartment was rustic, yes, but full of character and had blessedly cool air-conditioning (it was around 35-40 degrees each day of our stay). We tended to take a nap in the heat of the afternoon and stay out later at night to see the sights in the cooler evenings and enjoy Roman hospitality. The two bedrooms were large and the bathroom very adequate (although the shower drain seems to be blocked as the recess would fill with water while showering). A small kitchen and dining room would make it easy to enjoy provisions from the market during the day. The only thing that was a little inconvenient was having the only TV in the main bedroom. When travelling with friends, this seems a bit unfair to the people staying in the other bedroom.
Hotel staff were helpful - carried our bags to and from the room, great daily cleaning service, and happy to make taxi and restaurant bookings for us. We did check out the rooftop terrace of the hotel, but preferred our pre-dinner drinks in the bustling square so we could soak up the local atmosphere.
Overall, it was a great stay and I have already raved about this hotel and our apartment (I think it was M2 ?) to everyone who has asked for recommendations in Rome. I would definitely stay here again and again and again :)
