Good value for a family in a Great location
Posted Jul 31, 2015 on Hotels
This recently renovated apartment is very reasonable and comfortable for a family of 4 or 5. It is NOT a full service hotel. The cleaning service comes every 9 days so if you stay less (as we did) it won't matter. The management staff speaks English and is willing to help with almost anything to ensure an enjoyable stay. Rome is a beautiful city but very hot in the Summer months. The two small air conditioning units in this apartment were woefully inadequate. On most nights, my family had trouble sleeping because it was too hot. Other than that, the apartment served its purpose and we stayed out most of the time anyway. The location is truly outstanding -- minutes from Vatican city and numerous restaurants, ATMs, shops, grocery stores, gelato stands, metro stations, etc.
Be prepared to pay a tourist fee in cash upon arrival. Also, if you want to pay by credit card, be prepared to pay an additional 5% service charge. Neither were explained to us prior to arrival.
