I had a great time staying here in Rome. The apartment was as advertised. It was in a great location (a 3-5 minute walk to the colosseum) and was worth the price.
Benedetta was very nice through SMS and provided all the information needed but did not get to meet her. We met with Gina her assistant (who was VERY NICE even though we did not understand her) and there was a little confusion on how to meet her but found WIFI and resolved that matter in a decent time. The location was great and plenty to do in the area and close to the Colloseo metro stop. On the weekend it was VERY NOISY from the pub downstairs, so if you are a light sleeper it may be a problem because it does get loud from the restaurant and pub.
The bed was VERY UNCOMFORTABLE, basically a very thin pad on wood, and getting to the bed every night was not easy and safe. The stand that leads to the bed up top is not steady and could be dangerous. One item also that my wife really needed was the hair dryer (which I asked Benedetta was important to us before i rented the apartment, she had assured me that there was one and it was working). Well there was a very cheap one there but it did not work and caused a big trouble for my wife because we were traveling through Europe and the hair blow dryer was not something we were carrying and she really needed one. I mentioned the good and the bad for this place but in the end for the amount I spent for this place I would NOT RECOMMEND this place. We stayed at five or six places through Europe and the longest stretch was in Rome and I was hoping for something better was disappointed.
thanks for your lines. Just to remind you, there are 2 hairdryers at home: one a travel kit and another one normal like all italians have at home. Normally our hairdressers doesn't costs more than 12 euros for a brushing so if you needed a professional one you had to go down at 50 meters (less) there was a professional one. Bed is a tatami anatomic one. Many people appreciate it, so it depends of clients. Flat is really well exposed on photos, you had your stay pratically inside the Forums with metro and public transportation just close to you for 90 euros with air conditioning, wifi free coffe tea and all tips you needed for your stay. Last but not the least I couldn't change Dolce Vita in Rome, but probably if you come in Rome you come even for Dolce Vita (that anyway switch off her lights at 2 am everywhere) isn't it? Anyway I will appreciate your lins that suggest me to improve in our way to introduce our nice flat in Rome.
Benedetta was very accommodating and arranged for us to stay at her appartment at the very last minute as we were struggling to find somewhere to stay. The appartment is in a great central location next to the Colloseum and Forum and close to a lovely area of Rome called Monti which has lots of great resturants, shops & bars etc. Thanks again Benedetta.

You see what you get. No photo shopping on the rooms. Nice and artsy place to stay in. It was to our taste and homeliness.
Location was top notch. Supermarket, metro's/ modes of transportation, restaurants, colloseum nearby.
Everything was clean and we feel immediately welcomed.
We will definitely be back!
The loft's location to the Coliseum and Forum is really great but it is more than a 20 minute walk from Rome Termini. There are restaurants right next to the loft that move their tables and have music until midnight. With the windows closed the AC on, the noise is not too loud.
When we arrived, we were greeted by her assistant who did not speak English at all. She tried to explain the parts of the apartment but we did not understand anything that she said.
We struggled to control the water temperature and had to let the water run over 10 minutes to get any hot water. Even then the hot water was scalding and oscillated to freezing, making it really hard to have a shower.
As of September 2014, there is major construction going on in the building next door with the entire room shaking due to jack-hammering which starts at 8 am and makes it impossible to sleep in.
As for getting into the bed, you have to climb 3 unstable stairs that are not connected to anything. It is very unsafe and we almost fell off.
The TV does not work and the towels smelled of mold after 2 days of use.
There is a washing machine that we used and did work well. We also enjoyed the coffee in the morning using the gas stove.
We had really a lovely time in Rome!
Benedetta was very kind and helpful, even though we didn't have the chance to meet her (we talked with her assistant, who was as well very kind and ready to help).
The house is pretty much in line with the description and the pictures provided. The location is just perfect, near via dei Fori Imperiali, less than 5 minutes walk from Piazza Venezia or the Colosseo (where you can get the undergroud). It's hard to think to something closer to the centre of the city. The area is also full of restaurants and bar.
The loft itself is on the first floor of the building (stairs are quite steep, but there is a tiny elevator); it is clean, well equipped and in good conditions. The bed was comfortable, we slept really well :-)
The bathroom is ok. We just had a minor issue with water temperature in the shower, which was apparently not very stable, but otherwise everything went just fine.
Since there are a restaurant and a pub just in front of the house the area tends to be a bit noisy, especially in the evening, but the situation became quiet at a decent hour (something after midnight). In addition the air conditioning of the house (which is anyway a great "plus") allows you to keep the windows closed, cutting out much of the noise.
I would definitely recommend you to stay in this loft for your holiday in Rome.
Thanks Benedetta :-)
I've read all your suggestions and I will forward it. It seems we had a technical problem in all building about the water so now technician will repair it. Calcium is our water nightmare in the center of Rome, but I will be a week end other there to change everything very soon. It was a pleasure to have a guest like you. Hope to see you again!

I was a farmer, raising buffalos, then a journalist.
I went then in Africa as a photo-video reporter on humanitarian projects.
I was always writing and shooting and a famous iranian group of artists changed my life.
Slowly I began to be involved in art, writing novels and poems, exhibiting photos and videos. I have worked as theater live director and as a scenographer.
Over these last years I have experimented printing photographs on sculptures, lamps, boxes, radiators, applying photos on interiors and then…? I AM LIVING BETWEEN MARRAKECH AND ROMA doing lots of projects;
