Federico was very helpful in helping us to get into the apartment after our flight was cancelled and we ended up arriving quite late at night. The apartment is clean and modern with cute markets located nearby. One of the showers was broken so you had to hold the button in to get water flowing from above and the other is quite short which is a problem if you're tall, but otherwise we had a good stay here.
Antes de comentar cómo es la casa, hablar de Federico. Muy atento con nosotros desde antes de llegar. Nuestro vuelo aterrizaba temprano y no puso ningún problema a que entrásemos en el apartamento antes de la hora "oficial", las 13:00. Nos comunicamos con él desde España a través de Whatsapp. Una vez allí se mostró muy solícito ante cualquier pregunta nuestra durante todo el fin de semana, que si dónde desayunar, que si dónde comer...
Pero la guinda fue el domingo. La casa había que dejarla a las 12:00, pero como nuestro avión salía a las 22:00 nos guardó las maletas y no solo eso, sino que nos las acercó en coche hasta la estación a la hora que nosotros le indicamos. Un 10.
La casa es un entresuelo reformado con mucho gusto, tal como se ve en las fotos. Una de las habitaciones con baño integrado completo con sendas ventanas que dan al exterior.
El otro baño es interior y la segunda habitación da a un patio de luces, al igual que la cocina a la que se entra desde la puerta principal acorazada. Estuvimos muy agusto y tranquilos. El barrio es muy bueno.
Gracias por todo Federico!
Lovely host and very nice place...everything was perfect... Surrounded by excellent restataunts...
Federico approved a last minute request for a 3 day stay. He also had no problem with our late arrival. The apartment was clean and nearby a metro to take you into all the sights you want to see in Rome. There were some significant issues however: The person that let us into the apartment wanted to just give us the key and run. I had to insist that he open the second locked bedroom and show us how to access the internet. He did not give us the correct access codes or password. We found them on the router and then had working Wifi. 30 min later Federico came and gave us a portable Wifi, which was very nice. The other issues were that even though there are two showers you cannot use them at the same time as one will be freezing cold if the other is on. The beds are very firm and I mean extremely, uncomfortably firm. The sound proofing is non-existant as you can hear the main door to the building slam all night as well as the elevator and anyone outside the windows. The heat was on too high and we were unable to turn it down. Due to the noise could we could not leave the windows open, so it was very hot to sleep in.
