Comforting and spacious apartment of 60 square meters, situated in a 1600 ancient building, to few meters from the temple of the Pantheon, the better preserved monument in Rome.
To less than 10 minutes, he can easily reach the squares, the monuments and the principals points of interest of the city, Plaza of Spain (10 minutes), Fountain of Trevi (5 minutes), Navona (8 minutes) Plaza, the Fori Imperiali and the Colosseum (10 minutes), St. Pietro.
The apartment is found to the third floor, it is bright and very calm.
And' composed by an ample entry, a spacious matrimonial room, a pleasant stay, a small equipped kitchen and a bath with shower.
The apartment comfortably entertains 4 people but he can arrive to 5. it is endowed with TV, phon and autonomous heating.
In the zone there is ample choice of restaurants and pub of various prices and tastes, as well as local of tendency, while for the one who wants to consume meals to house there is a comfortable supermarket to 100 meters.
Mario llegó 15 minutos tarde pero luego fue simpático y nos explicó todo lo necesario de la casa. La localización es lo mejor del piso. Es más grande de lo que parece aunque la cocina es muy pequeña si quieres cocinar. Pasamos frío y el sofá cama de la entrada se hunde casi hasta el suelo, es como dormir en una hamaca. Las recomendaciones de restaurantes de Mario son buenas. También perdimos el wifi el segundo día. Pedí ayuda a Mario pero no nos solucionó el problema. Sí es verdad que fue flexible en cuanto a la hora de dejar el piso. Así que una experiencia agridulce.
We were very happy with the apartment and the service provided by Mario. The location is perfect and the apartment is clean. Mario was very helpful and allowed us to do a later checkout.
We had a mixed experience with this apartment. The location is fabulous. You are just steps from the Pantheon here which is amazing. It is spacious (there were 4 of us, 2 adults and 2 little kids). Communication with Mario was mostly quick and easy. The downsides were that the apartment, while clean (the kitchen and bathroom surfaces were shining), is very run down. A coat of paint and fresh furniture coverings would help a lot. They are stained which is really unappealing to me. It feels dirty in there. Fresh blankets would help too. In addition, we lost power once, and the lights stopped working in the hallway another time (which Mario came and fixed right away to his credit). The toilet seat was broken when we arrived (Mario fixed the next day) and there were no instructions left in the apartment, which left us without hot water our first day (when you really want a hot shower after traveling). All our issues were little ones, but the amount of them, for a visit of just a few days, really detracted from our experience in Rome which in unfortunate. While the location is fantastic, and Mario seems very nice, this wasn't a very good fit for us. Other people seem to have had much better experiences, so we may have had some bad luck in terms of timing, but it wasn't a great stay for our family.
We arrived very late, after 2400, but Mario was there. We spent 4 nights including Old Year. Not much during the day, because we were out walking from one touristic thing to another. Everyday for 12-20 km's. Freezing cold outside, but luckily Mario had heaters in his apartment. This place is excellent positioned, not more then 30 minutes away from the Vatican, the Colosseum (with fireworks!) the Plaza di Popolo or the Borghese. And all the other monuments. Eatingpossibilities in our street or just round the corner. When you step out you see the Pantheon just a few steps away! Sleeping for three people was ok, the 4th en 5th not so excellent. We were with 5 grown-ups. Two had to sleep on an old bed-couch and a stretcher. A good working toilet and shower, so that was also good. A little kitchen which we didn't use very much, because we ate outside. We bought online tickets for the Vatican Museum (and climbed 500 steps in the Basilica San Pietro), also for the Galleria Borgese and the Colosseum including the Foro Romano. We were happy we did that, because we coulsd skip the line three times which saved us several hours! When you rent this place it is not for staying in, but it is excellent for going out!

We stayed at this place for 4 nights. First of all the location is absolutely perfect! It is easy to walk to almost all attractions in the Rome. Ranging from 1 min to 30 min walks. And even a little long walks are recommended because there just is so much to see in your way, around every corner lures a new gigantic roman building or statue.
Since we stayed in dec-jan it was pretty cold in rome -2 -10 degrees. The master bedroom had a heater and was warm. However the other 2 rooms were really cold, especially during the night. The master 2 persons bed and 2 one person beds were ok, however the sleeping couch was very uncomfortable. I felt more like sleeping in a shitty hammock than a bed with those worn out metal springs, causing me backpain and uncomfortable nights. I hope Mario will change this bed, or I hope that you plan to travel with less than 5 people!
The optional heater worked marginally and caused the electricity to black out in the entire room, another thing that hopefully could be changed by Mario.
And be aware that your 220V plugs will not fit in the contacts, even if some converters are provided this did not allow our devices to work in all wall plugs.
Overall we would rate this accommodation:
We would recommend this place. A good stay if you plan to be mostly outside and don't expect more than you pay for. However a few things could be improved and lead to a much higher rating.

Amazing location. Central to all of Rome's sights and Pantheon practically at the front door.
Apartment was great for what we needed. A little quirky, clean, spacious and Mario was very helpful.
Great location right next to the Pantheon! We had everything we needed in the apartment, exactly as described. Unfortunately we did not meet Mario in person but he was very responsive to our messages.
We got to the appartment late at night and Mario organized everything so that someone would be waiting for us! The location is great! We walked everywhere (only took a bus to Vaticano) and every little street had something to see.
We had some trouble with the hot water (without knowing we turned the switch off) and talking to Mario was really easy.. He helped us right away!
The bathroom is new and it was really confortble sleeping there!
