The purpose of our visit was to see our son dive in the Olympic stadium and this was 15 minutes walk to the pool. What we didn't realise was this apartment was part of the Olympic village. The place was clean and tidy. The shower provided plentiful hot water and the kitchen was adequate. We even had a small freezer in the fridge to put our ice-cream. The apartment does not have air conditioning but electric fans are provided, as is a hairdryer, towels and iron & ironing board. Only thing missing (or I couldn't find) was a kettle.
On the map it looks like this is a little too far out of the city centre, but the public transport is very close and cheap. The number 2 tram stops literally 2 minutes walk away from the apartment and within 8 stops you are on the outskirts of town. Two metro stops on and you are at the Spanish Steps. One tram & metro journey lasting up to 100 minutes cost 1.50 Euros. Children 10 or under don't pay. We travelled into Rome for our supper (Hard Rock Café actually) and felt happy enough to do so. The metro can be busy so watch your bags. We never felt threatened, but have heard tales.
We took an open top bus ride one day - well worth saving your feet! Plenty of free water from taps on almost every street. Advice, buy a bottle and keep filling it!
There is a supermarket literally 5 minute walk away from the apartment. It has EVERYTHING, from shampoo & shavers to melon & salami. There is an Italian and fish restaurant close by, the menu is in Italian though. There is a great playground with swings and climbing frames only 5 minutes away, our little one loved this at the end of a sight seeing day - her treat! There seemed to be an area for nightlife just across the bridge - but with a youngster we never checked it out.
The apartment also has free WiFi - amazing! We kept in touch with real life through this.
Would definitely stay here again, we like having a little extra space that this offers that hotels don't.
