A fantastic home base and location for exploring Rome.
☺ The location was fantastic -- close to all the tourist areas and sights you want to reach on foot (Spanish steps only 10 minutes away), but the neighborhood was authentically Roman. Whenever we ate out at night in the area, we felt like the only travelers in the room. Our hostess gave us fantastic tips for shopping and dining nearby. The apartment was extremely tastefully furnished, modern and clean. We would book it again any time. A fun treat for the kids too was the old-style cage elevator in the middle of the stairs.
☹ You're in an urban environment facing the street below, so if you sleep with windows open at night for fresh air, despite the 3rd floor height, you'll of course also get the sounds of Rome in the night and early morning, whether it's a motorcycle, garbage truck, or even conversations. But that's life; you're in Rome. If that's the only complaint we could come up with, you can tell how positive the experience was for us.
