Cecilia is a lovely hostess. The vacation rental building is in a beautiful residential area of Rome up on the Gianicolense area. There are shops nearby with all necessary amenities and plenty of restaurants. Cecilia has a very concise neighborhood guide which is very useful. The apartment is up two flights of steps; it is very clean, has two very spacious bedrooms with comfortable beds, good lighting. The apartment does not have a living room or sofa and the only sitting area is around the kitchen table, or at a small outside cantilevered balcony with table with chairs. There is another room which is locked so maybe that's a living room. The kitchen equipment with pots, pans, cutlery very clean and orderly. The kitchen has no microwave. There is no bottled water in the fridge, no napkins, paper towels available upon arrival. The bathroom is very clean, functional, has hair dryer. The shower stall is small; no place to put your soap.All the electricals and plumbing work perfectly. It is a good accommodation in a good part of Rome and not too far from a bus from which you can access the underground/subway, or you can even walk into town- the closest well-trodden tourist area being Trastevere. The closest attraction is the Teatro (Italian language theatre) and the stunning park, Villa Pamphilij which is gorgeous and not too overrun with tourists. I would recommend this holiday rental for a good value for money accommodation for people who want basic self catering.
