Thank you Dara for your kind words about us. I'm just sorry you felt cold, you should have told me!! Maybe I could help you with it, too. The apartment is an old one, with thick walls so it gets very warm when the heater is on, I even close it in my bedroom sometimes...but it is subjective of course! I'm also sorry you had to stay all the time home and could not enjoy the city, hope you will next! You will see that it's very easy and fast to reach Piazza di Spagna etc by metro A from Manzoni (7 min walking from here), or enjoy San Lorenzo, the student district just around the corner...etc. Actually our district, wich is called Esquilino is not that bad too, many artist and film makers live here. It's a multietnical district, very lively but not so turistic as others part in the city center. About the hot water..The private bathroom's boiler is 80 l .... we used to have 3 showers one after the other....and it gets hot again in 30 min.. don't know why you didn't enjoy it !!
