PRO: Best apartment we rented on a 3 week trip thru Italy. Using Rental in Rome we found this gem located only about 3 blocks from Termini Station. The agent met us promptly, gave us the run-down & keys. It's totally IKEA & makes you feel good and clean just staying there. Remote operated A/C in both living area & bedroom, huge closet, black-out shades and neat touches like a cube radio w/wired speakers to add music to your Chianti party! The bathroom has plenty of cabnet storage and the linens were nice. Caveat! Take them seriously when they tell you NOT to run too many electrical items at once. We turned on the hot water heater AND the A/C then flicked the light switch. BAM! Darkness. But, hubby was able to figure out which breaker was ours down in the basement so we didn't have to call the apartment manager to restore electricity.
CON: Could have supplied some cleaning products, i.e., sponges, trash bags & soap. Location isn't close to the big tourist attractions. We got robbed by a "gypsy" one block away (they are everywhere in Rome) not really a fault of the apartment; perhaps location.
BOTTOM LINE: It's a beautiful, comfortable apartment for a good price at an OK location!
