The apartment is beautiful, spacious, and well maintained. I was surprised at the size - both bedrooms are very large, as is the living/dining area and the kitchen. Ceilings are high. The bathroom has a huge comfortable shower, good water pressure and plenty of hot water. The kitchen was well stocked if you want to cook. Everything was very clean. The apartment is full of light but has roll shutters to darken the bedrooms at night. It's on the first floor (one level up from ground), with a small working elevator or easy stairs. The apartment includes a coffee and cornetto from the nice bar across the street. The location is really ideal for someone who doesn't want to be right in the heart of the centro storico (I'm done with the crowds and noise, prefer a residential neighbourhood.) It is a 5 minute walk to Testaccio and its lovely market, an easy 15-20 minute walk to Trastevere, 5 minutes walk from Trastevere train station if you arrive by public transit. It is outside the ZTL, so you can drive in and park if you want (which I don't want to!) But honestly, the best part of this rental was communication with the owners. They asked in advance how we wanted the beds arranged, checked with us to confirm arrival times, responded promptly to every query. We got to meet both Marzia and Tony and they were friendly and chatty without being overbearing. They also offer van transport to the airport which reduced departure-day stress. I really enjoyed meeting them and every expectation was met or exceeded. I think this is now my go-to place when visiting Rome, which I do every few months. Thank you Marzia and Tony!
Disliked · Nothing. I was initially worried about having a McDonald's across the street but there was no noise and no smell of cooking grease.
