My computer crashed with the review on iso here it is again.
As I indicated before we went I found the failure of the host to provide helful advice most unwelcoming, particularly as I asked for local food shops.
As a result, it was only on day before we left that I discovered excellent food shops, including a fish monger and freshly made pasta shop a ten minute walk away in the Via della Croce, off the Spanish steps rather than the 20 minute bus ride and walk to the Campo da Fiori! I have a feeling that Luigi does not live in Rome so could not provide a welcome pack of information.
Plenty of good quality crockery, cutlery and towels.
Good location in the centre which once we had mastered the bus routes was very convenient. Again some guidance on that would have spared some anxious moments.
There was a good restaurant across the road where we went twice. An internet shop downstairs which was helpful.
The central heating was very efficient.
The taxi company reccommended by Luigi was excellent and we used them for the journey back to the airport.
There was only one very small frying pan, enough for one egg. This meant that on the three occassions when we cooked dinner we had to brown each piece of meat separately and then put them in the ovento finish cooking. When we put on the oven to do this and needed to use any other electrical appliance the electricity tripped so my granddaughter had to stand by the fuse box to turn it back on again. A very fraught cooking experience.
There weren't any casseroles or dishes to put in the oven so the only thing was a very large tray.
Health and safety would have a fit as electric cords were either very close to the taps or one had to watch that they didn't go near the gas hob when it was on.
Lighting in the kitchen was deficient as the overhead light did not work.
No place to hang anything in the second bedroom.
In the double bedroom there was an iron bedstead with two mattresses on top which were the wrong size so the top one overlapped by 15-20cms and needed to be hauled back every couple of days. Very difficult.
There were no shelves or towel rails in the bathroom so although there were two sinks there was no place to put makeup or even hair brushes which as the second bedroom didn't have a mirror or dressing table meant that all grooming had to be done in the bathroom.
Not the owner's fault but there is not much natural light which is rather gloomy and the street although narrow is v. noisy as it is a cut through for taxis.
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour, Rome est une ville magnifique...L'appartement est très bien située: proche de la Fontaine de Trévis et d'autres lieux inoubliables, tout comme il est proche des commerces et des transports en commun. Par contre, il est bruyant à cause de la via del tritone et du garage à camions de nettoyage de la ville juste à côté! Il lui manque aussi un micro-onde, une cafetière plus grande ,un grille pain , des interrupteurs et prises qui fonctionnent correctement pour le sèche cheveux par exemple. D'autre part,la télé n'a pas fonctionné pendant notre séjour, la douche ne coule pas bien, le grand lit tient sur des gros pots de peinture, la 2ème chambre manque d'une penderie ,le matelas du canapé-lit est léger et la vaisselle est dépareillée!
Compte tenu du coût de la prestation, ceci est bien dommage car cela en fait baisser sa qualité.
Dommage aussi de ne pas vous avoir rencontré mais une intermédiaire dénommée Anna Claudia!
Tout ceci ne nous empêchera pas de revenir à Rome, mais peut-être pas dans ce même appartement.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
