This apartment is one off property and it has an atmosphere of 'home'. Spacious, pleasant and no intrusions at all. It has a master bedroom, a secondary double bedroom and a single 'box' room. Kitchen is large and well equipped. There is a Shower and bathroom combined and a secondary toilet without shower. It has two balconies, one is big enough to be a kind of patio with wooden chairs and table. There is a lobby as you enter the property leading to the lounge which is beautiful, complete with bookshelf with an excellent collection of books in it but in Italian. Although designed for 5 people, it Certainly can sleep 7 or 8. Simone [the owner] is very nice and co-operative person. They let us in to leave luggage at 10.30am although we were supposed to check in at 2pm. As for location, it is next best thing to being in the middle of Rome with a fraction of the cost. There are two large supermarkets on the same road, [walking towards the Vatican which is 10 minute walk]. There are restaurants and pizzerias in the area. The Metro is less than 10 minutes walk away [Cipro station, pronounced 'cheapro' ]. All major attractions are 'walkable' but even if you are not a walking person, a 1.5 Euro metro ticket will take you anywhere you want as it is valid for 75 minutes the moment you put it in the electronic turnstile to enter a station [these are widely available from tobacconists as well as auto machines and ticket offices at the stations]. The farthest attraction is Coliseum which is bang in front of its own metro station - note: for coliseum you will have to change line at the main Terminal station called Termini - its very straight forward as there are only two lines in Rome and you don't need a second ticket, your original is valid until 75 minutes have lapsed where is you only need 15 minutes for the whole journey! The underground system is very good.
