“Rome in January”
Before I rented this apartment I read all the previous reviews and most of what was written was reflected in my experience. The flat is ridiculously charming and utilitarian with obvious touches of recent remodeling. The patio is lovely but I couldn't spend any time there because it was January; I can only imagine how great it would be to hang out in warmer weather. Helpful hints other people didn't mention: When Federico shows you how the kitchen and appliances work, pay attention. I was excited to be in Rome and I only half-heard what he said and as a result I spent some time puzzling over the stove and washer later. Bring your laptop, yes! There is wifi and with internet access you can research all the places, things, tours, trains, restaurants and so forth in Rome plus email and post all those pictures you take on your Facebook page like I did. If you don;t have a phone that works in Europe you can buy one at Mobal.com for cheap...used mine mostly for text and a voice call here and there. There are a couple of grocery stores in short distances, liquor is cheap! There is a small vegetable market on the opposite side of the building most everyday. Go to Luzzi's for lunch, visit Naumachia for supper. The neighborhood is great and safe at any hour. Every restaurant posts their menu outside. An enoteca is a winebar that might serve small meats or cheeses (unless you see a menu outside them). There are a couple of Irish bars in the area but no Irish in them, just stout at 3.50 euros per glass and indifferent food. An atm two blocks down and two blocks left. Keep your euros in small denominations; nobody will be your friend if all you have is a 50 euro note. Other than that, it is ridiculously easy to get around without knowing much Italian. But do learn how to count to 20, how to order, how far, how much and to ask for the check (il conto) and what's your name, my name is... for tours--Romewalks.com (Guenivere). The metro stop
“Excellent location. Great for a budget minded couple.”
Location is GREAT for touring ancient Rome on foot. Plus the Metro (subway) is only an 8-10 minute walk from the basement apartment so you can easily get anywhere you want. It is a small place with a small bathroom, but definitely a value pick for the price. The pull out sofa bed comfortably fit my husband and I with no complaints (and we are light sleepers). The small kitchen was excellent. Use of the washer was convenient. The de-humidifier was a life saver. The air conditioner was excellent for the middle of summer, although it did make a ticking noise which hopefully will be fixed before the next visitor arrives. The hot water is VERY hot but limited in volume, so plan showers accordingly. A neighborhood map is given to you upon arrival which is great. One of the two close grocery stores is significantly less expensive than the other, so go to the store located at about 22 Via Annia. The neighborhood food recommendations are okay, but for a FANTASTIC place to eat dinner that is less touristy, walk 15 minutes to Vecchia Roma at Via Ferruccio, 12. It's full of locals once it gets later in the evening. In summary, we enjoyed our stay immensely (6 nights) and recommend this place to any budget traveling pair who would prefer a non-hotel environment.
“Wonderful little studio within 5 minute walk of Colosseum and ot”
Very nicely decorated little studio in the heart of Ancient Rome, within about a 5 minute walk from the Colosseum. The rental company was very easy to deal with, as well as going the extra mile for us by getting a message to us from our kids when they were unable to reach us through emails. The property owner actually came out to the apartment and left a note for us on the door. We were very impressed by their service. Lots of places to dine and within walking distance of just about everything. Well stocked (utensils) kitchenette, relatively comfortable sofa bed, tiny, but adequate, bathroom. Helpful manager-type person just next door. Excellent little bar down one block and then one block to the left for breakfast. Very friendly. Helpful english-speaking Segue shopowner across the street from the bar. Internet access shop at the end of one of the three streets . . . can't remember which one . . . about 5 minutes walk, before you get to the Colosseum. The only negative thing I would have to say was with the quantity of the hot water, but we may have accidentally flipped a switch that shouldn't have been flipped. Not sure. For future information, if you want internet access, make sure you tell the agency BEFORE you get there. If the owner's out of town, you won't be able to connect because you need to get a password. We've already recommended this place to friends who will be visiting Rome in September. We will most definitely stay here again.
“Great location, cozy space.”
I would definitely recommend apartment at Via Capo d'Africa listing 301, managed by Roman Reference in Rome. Location was very convenient, space is cozy and clean. The Roman Reference staff was very helpful and friendly, I am going to use their services for my next trip to Paris or Barcelona.
“Siamo stati benissimo”
La stanza ? comoda e silenziosa; a due passi dal colosseo e vicinissima ai mezzi di trasporto pubblico. Ha tutto il necessario e la signora ? stata molto cordiale. Un gioiellino d'architettura
Via Capo d-Africa was in a perfect location. We were were able to walk to just about everything we wanted to see. And if we couldn't walk there, we were within blocks of the subway system, bus stop, and taxi stand. Plenty of restaurants around the community. Small, but the rate was good, and would stay there again in a heart beat.
“Perfect Location & Great Hospitality”
We were graciously greeted upon our arrival, with a fruit pie nonetheless. The home was adequate for the low price we paid. The location was also very convenient as we were blocks from the Colosseum and surrounded by fantastic local restaurants. The home is also very close (2-3 minute walk) to several bus stops and the metro. On a side note, the Pizza Forum is a must visit!
“small & cosy”
It's a small one bedroom with a nice and clean kitchen corner and a small, but clean bathroom. there is no place for sitting outside, you really have to stay in the city or in the restaurants, which are two minutes in walking distance. It's perfect for a short stay in rome - also because it's near the center. just 3 minutes walk to the colloseum. it would book it again.
