Andrea was a helpful and welcoming host, calling in advance to make sure everything was arranged for the keys, an airport transfer, and a welcome package for the kitchen. Apartment was perfectly functional and clean, but somewhat lacking in charm and strangely decorated. It's a dark place with limited natural light except in one bedroom, so florescent lighting is strong. It was worthwhile for us to pay the elevated airport transfer fee as we arrived late at night, but the food in the 30 euro welcome basket was cheap quality. Fresh fruit, milk, juice, and bread would have been much better than UHT milk, preserved bread and a kilo of sugar. The location is nice enough, but you will need to walk down a series of steps for two or three blocks to reach the main Trastevere road leading to shops, restaurants and cafes about 15-20 mins walk away. Internet connection does not always work well, but Andrea explained this might be the network. The apartment suited our need for two bedrooms and was fine on this occasion.
Thank you for your time and effort sharing me your experience during your stay in my apartment, I am also very grateful of having you as my guests and you are one of the very few who appreciates my effort in giving good service.
Just some things caught my attention, as for the strange decorations in my apartment, some guests who previously stayed said they loved it but others were not, I think it's only a matter of tastes.
As for the one bedroom with a dark place because there is limited light, it is because instead of big windows, there are small windows which are patterned to the "gun slits" of the historical Gianicolense wall across the street, I don't know if you have noticed it during your stay. FYI, here in Rome and in every historial spots in Italy (just like where my apartment is located) we cannot just construct buildings/houses according to our tastes, we have to respect if there are some historical attractions/monuments next to you which is needed to be patterned.
As for the welcome pack, please be advised that this is only an extra service that I have thought to optionally ask my guests if they are arriving late at night. The €30 costs consists of medium quality stuff and following the Italian regulations, I can only provide packed stuff. Frest fruits, fresh milk, fresh juices or the like and other unpacked stuff are strictly prohibited. There are some rules that I also need to follow in accordance to Italian law.
As for the neighborhood, the series of steps are only alternative way to get to Viale Trastevere as the main is to get to the bus stops very close to the apartment which takes you to all historical parts of Rome.
Once again, thank you for staying in my apartment. I look forward to welcoming you back in the Eternal City on your next visit.
