Nice apartment in the Monti area, with private patio for perfect relax. Now renovated, with full WIFI.
City tax 3,50 eur/pers/night
The apartment is located in the Monti area, a few hundred meters away from Colosseo, in a famous street, via del boschetto, where a number of fashion boutique and handicraft shops have changed the shape of the area since a few years. It is a place where artists and architects now live, with some design shops as well making it very special for your staying.
There is a supermarket (email hidden), where you can get your food and also an organic food shop called MiaMarket, just next street on Via Panisperna. Also on Via Panisperna, the fantastic wine bar called Tre Scalini, where most of the people gather for a drink before, during or after dinner.
The apartment is very silent, and it has its own private patio where you can sit and relax during the superb roman spring.
Rules of the house are very simple, I only ask for respect for next guests, for the apartment, for myself and for the neighbours. Smokers may go on the overlooking courtyard, other than this limited noise and care for the apart. You might decide to come back, I always try to improve. Leave a comment in the guestbook you will find, it will help me.
Ho passato il capodanno nell'appartamento "colosseo Hipster Patio" con 2 amici. L'appartamento è carino, il proprietario molto cordiale però c'è un problema... in 3/4 persone è invivibile. Il motivo di ciò sta nel fatto che il secondo "letto" (in realtà, divano letto molto molto scomodo) si trova in salotto, il salotto non possiede ne tende ne balconi per ripararsi dalla luce indiretta che ogni mattina mi svegliava alle 7:00. In più il bagno se usato da più di due persone si allagava!! Quindi consiglio l'appartamento per 2 persone anche perché è in una zona stupenda a pochi passi dai fori romani.
The best aspect of the apartment is its ideal location on a charming street in the Monti neighborhood, not yet overrun by tourists, close to the subway, surrounded by restaurants and bars, and near a charming square where locals gather at night to have a relaxing drink.
The apartment itself was very quiet with a nice small internal patio. While the furnishings were not luxurious, they were mostly comfortable (even the fold-out sofa, with the addition of an extra mattress). As other reviewers noted, the apartment is fairly dark and with limited air circulation. However, we stayed during the early autumn and were able to leave the big sliding doors open for most of the time.
There were some minor issues with the apartment that could be easily remedied: the shower is somewhat leaky and the toilet seat was loose. Despite Roger's best efforts to fix it and talk to the company, technical issues with the Internet provider meant that the wifi was not operational during our whole stay. I assume it is fixed now.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay in the apartment. It was spacious enough for three people and was a good base for sightseeing and exploring the city. Roger and his associate Mario were responsive hosts from reservation throughout our stay. Roger even arranged a private car from the airport for us -- the cost was similar to a taxi or train tickets and was much more efficient and comfortable.
We arrived late (around 01:00 AM) in the appartment and have been welcomed by Mario, a friendly colleague of Roger. After landing, on the phone, Roger insisted a bit heavily (in view of the late hour I guess) that we take the taxi from the airport but we had already booked tickets for the airport shuttle and finally we arrived on the scheduled time. We payed 20 euros for the late arrival, which is normal and was notified beforehand.
The flat is idealy situated, close to the Termini station (15 minutes walking) and to the main attractions in Rome, especially the Colloseum (10 minutes). The quarter is nice and lively, mostly during the week-end.
The appartment itself is fairly clean, spacious. Having a patio is pleasant. The bedroom is large enough and comfy. Nevertheless we encountered some inconveniences. Due to its configuration, the flat is not very bright (the patio is surrounded by high walls) and lacks of good air circulation. The sofa bed is not very comfortable despite the secondary mattress at disposal. The bathroom looks nice but after 2 or 3 successive showers, the water does not drain away correctly from the sides of the bathtub and may overflow on the floor. We found the dish machine dirty and out of order. We have to mention that we received an apology for it, but after our departure.
Globally, we think that with some improvements, this flat can be a good option for a couple (eventually with kids), considering the excellent location and the price.
The reservation was canceled 3 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Our 3 night stay here was worth it mainly because of its prime location. The downsides were primarily caused by poor air circulation, leading to a damp and unpleasant smell in the apartment. to keep the smell manageable we had to keep the doors open which inevitably led to many insect bites overnight. In addition, when we got to the apartment, we were told the light in the dining room would be replaced the next morning but it never was. Also the wifi was not working the entire first day but by noon the next day it was working properly. Only book this residence if you don't mind sleeping in a less than comfortable atmosphere to benefit from a great location.
The apartment is in a good location and very spacious. However, on the day of arrival , the concierge was not contactable and we had to wait for 45 minutes before someone came along to open the door for us.
Other than that, Roger was a good host. He was very effiicient in his communication and even warned us of a strike in the city on the day od departure and arranged transport for us.
Un apartamento perfectamente localizado a un par de minutos de parada de metro y con parada de autobús en la misma calle.
Muy buen ambiente justo debajo en una plaza muy concurrida.
El apartamento se encuentra en muy buenas condiciones con está muy bien equipado (cocina, secador, plancha, etc). Tiene un patio interior muy útil que da luz a toda la vivienda aunque en realidad es el deslunado de el edificio.
Los únicos problemas son que el colchón del sofá cama es casi inexistente y se duerme bastante mal ,hace falta limpiar el apartamento un poco más a fondo y el wifi muuuuuuy lento.
En general le pondría un 8/10.
