It is the perfect location, as in the heart of the city center but in a quiet and elegant building at the 5th floor. The Green Tea chinese restaurant (the best chinese food in town) is in the same street as well as the delicious fish restaurant "Sapore di mare" in the morning you can enjoy the best cappuccino of Rome in the very famous "Caffe Sant'Eustachio" just few metres away!
Fantastic area next to the Pantheon
Very elegant and romantic apartment
Well furnished and cozy
Livia´s appatment is a wonderful and stylish place. We loved everytime to come "home", after our walks around the city (the appartment is located perfect, just around the corner of Pantheon.) There are lots of great restaurants and bars within walking distance. Therefore we feel like locals.
It´s very cosy and calm.
I have to mentioned that only one bed is real bed, the other one is a small couch. For us it was okay. Also this couch is located on a gallery without railing. I wouldn´t recomend for families with children.
All togehter we had a great time and if we will come back to Rome, we will definitly come back to Livia´s place.
Livias apartment is nice, well equipped, location right in the center of the city, one minute walk to the Pantheon, very silent during the night, clean, nice furniture, from our side it could not be much better - it's a clear recommendation.
Livia's apartment is well equipped with the essentials.
In terms of Location, I would have to say it's PERFECT! It's in the central and yet on a quiet street. Public bus stations (to major attraction sites) are just 4 mins walk from the apartment; 2 mins walk to Carrefour Express; 8 mins walk to Palazzo Venezia & Capitoline Museums; 19 mins walk to Colosseum...and it's just simply convenient.
2 thumbs up!
We loved Livia's place. The location is absolutely great, the house is right in the center of all the major monuments and there are lots of great restaurants and bars within walking distance. The rooms are comfortable and spacious, and it is a truly local place we enjoyed the experience of local life style.
A very well placed apartment - ideal for visiting the sites and exploring Rome. The apartment was light, very quiet and roomy enough for two adults and two teenage children. Wifi was available and worked well. Livia wasn’t in Rome while we were there but had arranged for someone to clean the apartment and hand over the keys. No problem there. Livia was flexible about check-in and check-out times which helped with travel/flight arrangements. Overall I would recommend this apartment. We had a great time in Rome here.
This is a VERY large apartment in a nice building located in a great location just around the corner from the Pantheon. The air conditioner was not working while we where there (which, according to other reviewers, appears to be an ongoing problem) so the apartment was quite hot both day and night. We were not told the air conditioning was not working until the day before we moved in and then it could not be fixed in time for our stay. Also important to note (at least in the summer months) there is only one air conditioner for a very big, high ceiling apartment so we think it might just cool one of the upstairs bedroom, not the entire apartment which does gets quite hot. Also, as another reviewer pointed out, it is definitely NOT child friendly. There is a steep circular staircase that is difficult to walk up and down on, and one of the bedrooms is a loft style room with a big drop to the floor below. We forbid our children to go upstairs so it worked out OK. Livia is a very sweet host and outside of the air conditioning and the child safety issues, the apartment is very nice, spacious, and in a great location.
The reservation was canceled 18 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
We are a traveller but young family with 2 babies+a babysitter :)
when we have searched for the proper apartment, our requirements were:
- nice location in the center of Rome
- Air Conditioning
- Family/Kid friendly apartmant.
Although Livia's apartment's price was high, we started to discuss. She was friendly, gave small discount because the AC doesnt work, and she offered fans for replacement, so we booked.
Unfortunately we had a few problems:
- nice place near to Pantheon: OK
- elevator out of service for 3 days. ahh, sh*t!
- no AC: ok, she mentioned it, but no FAN?! ohh, come on. :/
- absolutely not kid friendly place.
- Livia is kind in email, but very busy. She is in NYC, we felt she didnt have time to prepare for us. :(
- cleaning lady was kind also, but she didnt speak english, and didnt have too much time (few mins) for us to show off the flat's equipments. *she didnt ask money from us, it was fair!
1. No AirConditioning - we stayed 3 of 6 days there without any AC or FAN, and the upstairs were terribly hot, but downstairs were hot too. Babies were suffers from heat. :( After I send messege for Livia (maybe she forgot her promise about the fan?) we got 1 fan, but it is not enough for this apartment. Need to fix the AC ASAP (it is a 5th floor loft under the roof. Literally. need to cool down somehow.)
//Please opt-out AirConditioning from Amenties, and opt-in only when it is good.//
2. it is not a kid friendly place, or need some updates.
- the stairs are creaking all the time and no railing. If we went up, or down, babies always woke up. very annoying.
- on the upper level, no real accident proof railing. dangerous, very easy to fall down for a baby.
- our pre-booking conversation was a bit misleading, she wrote, try to get a baby cot from her friend, but after we booked, no success on baby bed. I try to suggest a few things to solve this issue: buy online a cheap baby cot/borrow from someone else etc, but she didnt have time to solve or want to invest. :/
//Please opt-out KidFriendly from Amenties.//
3. elevator is a tiny one, for one person + baggage. I can imagine it is often out of order. 3 of 6 days we go up on foot, with 2 babies, baby trolley + bags etc to the 5th. not funny. :)
1. cool, spacey apartment for the colder days. but not recommanded in hot summer, without AC.
2. if you are young team, or young couple without kids: it is your place.
3. it is really in the center.
The only problem I had is getting the apartment keys and finding the exact unit. I reached Rome at 10.30 PM. Livia is remote and arranged key pickup at a near by Restaurant. When I went to the restaurant they were pretty busy with the customers and I had to wait 10 minutes before I got the chance to talk to them. They have no clue what I m talking about and they could not find the keys. Livia gave me her cleaner mobile number in case if I have problem with the Keys. I called her cleaner and learned that she doesn't speak english. Somehow I managed restaurant people to directly talk to the Cleaner over phone. Finally they found the keys in the restaurant drawer. It took at least 1 hour for all the drama. I had to make 3 or 4 phone calls on roaming.
Then comes the other trouble in finding the apartment. I entered the apartment, it is 5 story building. None of the units has the numbers on the doors and I don't know which unit belongs to Livia. There is a directory in the downstairs, but I didn't see Livia's name. I directly went to top floor and after 10 minutes of search I knocked one of the doors to ask about Livia's unit. Fortunately, They were aware of the unit and directed me to the proper unit. *sigh*.
This all happened at 10.30 in the night. By the the time I entered unit, It was 11.40 PM. It's was pain.
Other than this, Apartment is in perfect location. It was clean and well maintained. I had no problem with any other stuff.
I really enjoyed my stay at Livia's apartment. It's a beautiful apartment and she keeps it very clean. The best attribute to me was the location. You cannot be more centrally located if you want to check out the tourist attractions, restaurants, bars etc. Livia is a great host and very responsive to all my questions. I would not hesitate to stay here if I visited Rome again.
