We had such a wonderful trip to Rome. Gabrielle was friendly and prompt in responding to all of my planning questions prior to our arrival and was there to meet us for the appartment.The apartment was very well located, literally-down the street from the Colosseum but not in the hub-bub of all the main tourism. We liked this because it was a some what quieter location and there were many cafe's just around the corner that we ate at the entire time.
They were exactly what we wanted to experience for good authentic Italian food that weren't bombarded by tourists and high prices. When you leave the apartment to the right, toward the Colosseum, you make the first right on the next street, and just there are 3 great places-Auntie Luzzi's which had wonderful cappaccinos and baked goods for breakfast as well as really good food for lunch and dinner. Directly across was another nice restaurant where we only got desserts to go and they were amazing but the place was always packed. Directly next to this was another Luzzi's Pizzaria (or something to that effect) and this place had really great food too! All Excellent!
The apartment itself was pretty much how it was described. It actually had a washing machine (no dryer but a clothing rack which worked great) and there was laundry soap available. I hadn't anticipated on using this but ended up needing to, and for a longer stay this was a plus. We didn't really use the kitchen because we went to the cafe's all the time but it was a fully stocked kitchen...and there is a wine opener if you buy wine to bring back. The beds were pretty comfortable and we all slept well during our stay. The apartment was very clean.
The bathrooms were both very small, especially the one that has an entrance from one of the bedrooms (the 2nd bathroom is connected in the hallway). This bathroom was very difficult to move around in, the toilet was practically under the sink and the shower was incredibly small (very difficult to fit into the door opening let alone turn around in the shower-especially being pregnant). And there was no shampoo/soap provided that was indicated on the description of ammenaties so I didn't bring any. Lastly, the shower head kept falling down and the water pressure and temperature were quite difficult.
Despite the frustrations from the bathrooms, overall, this appartment and location were great and I would recommend staying here. Thank you.
*Keep in mind-4-5flights of stairs, no elevator. Fine if not disabled
