Great location close to St Peter's and the Vatican
Posted Feb 28, 2017
We booked for a three nights during half term in February, our first visit to Rome. The apartment was bigger than expected, with a separate sitting room and two bathrooms, great for teenage daughters! The two bedrooms had a double bed in one and twins in the other, as well as a sofa-bed in the sitting room. Staff were helpful at check-in and check-out. The location is quiet, considering how close it is to central attractions like the Vatican, but close to restaurants and other services; the corner shop opposite was very useful for essentials, and there is a nice little place for breakfast a couple of doors' down. Although we had been warned that there would be building work going on in the complex during the day during our stay, it didn't disturb us at all. The Castell Sant'Angelo and the Tiber are just a couple of minutes' walk away, as is the Vatican. We walked to the Collosseum and back, which is a couple of miles' away, via the Pantheon, so it is possible to take in the real "headlines" on foot. The Trevi fountain is also not that far away. We were also blessed with fantastic weather for February - not a cloud in the sky, and 15-16 degrees C every day.
