Kudos to my wife who found this apartment, who is part of the Residenza Cellini hotel. The apartment is in Via Marianna Dionigi no. 17, which is 2 minutes walk to Piazza Cavour (Supreme Court). We have 3 generations travelling, total of 7 pax, youngest being 3, and oldest 69. I really don't know where to start, so let's talk about start from the part when we checked in.
We were greeted by brother and sister team, Gaetano and Barbara. They made us felt really at home, and explained everything to us, from where to eat, where to visit first, what bus to take, etc. I think they spent over an hour with us when we checked in. The apartment was stocked up with all sorts of necessities; pastries, milk, juices, coffee, tea, etc. etc. It was almost like a mini 7-eleven in there. Towels, bath gel and shampoo were all provided for. There were 3 bedrooms in total, and everyone of us had a bed. The apartment faces the courtyard, so it was nice and quiet.
The location was superb. It was a short walk to the Spanish Steps. We basically walked everywhere. The only day when we took a bus was because it was raining, and we wanted to go a bit further to the Coliseum. Apart from that, this apartment is walking distance to everywhere, the Pantheon, Trevi Fountain, Vatican City, St. Peter Basilica etc. etc. If my dad at 69 and my youngest son at 3 didn't mind the walks, I think it says a lot. There are very nice restaurants and pizzerias very nearby. All of them are good, and worth mentioning is the Japanese restaurant Taki just down the road. Worth a try!
All in all, loved the apartment, great value for money (given that we would need to book 2 or even 3 hotel rooms for 7 of us) and thank you Gaetano and Barbara for making us feel so welcomed! We will definitely be back to Rome, and to this apartment again!
