For me and my husband, staying 10 days in September 2010, it was a inspired choice of apartment. The location is central and all the main sites are easily reached on foot. You're just steps away from the life of the city yet the apartment is quiet and the balcony private and pretty. The rooftop views from the balcony and the bedroom windows are spectacular. The market in Campo de' Fiori is just minutes away, great for flowers,fresh fruit, cheeses and hams (look out for one stall that sells rolls filled with wonderful slow-roasted pork), and there's a lovely bakery there as well for morning croissants and take away pizza. A little supermarket is a few yards away, and of course you can take your choice of the bars and restaurants all around. The apartment has everything you could need or want for a city centre stay. It's designed and planned to make great use of the space and feels airy and light. The bed is large and comfortable, the air conditioning and Sky TV are bonuses. I've tried hard to think of any downsides and the only one I can think of is that the shower is a pretty basic one over the bath and I prefer a shower to a bath, but that's a personal preference and it is exactly as described in the advertb Alex met us when we arrived and made us feel at home straightaway, and Melanie, who lives in the same building and checked us in and out,was lovely, helpful without being intrusive. Finally, we know Rome well and have stayed in other several apartments but this is the best by far. When can we go again!
