The Young lady we booked it through was fantastic. We can not fault her at all. Breakfast was fantastic. The breakfast staff were very helpful and would do anything for you. There were a lot of hotel functions and parties during our stay. When this happened the hotel guests were pushed aside and felt like we're in the way. Evening staff were a let down and unhelpful and no bar staff were ever available and you had to always go to the front reception to get someone to serve you. No tea/coffee making facilities available in the rooms. You had to go down to the bar to make them. When we arrived late we asked for a coffee and was told there was nine available.
Located in a quiet residential neighborhood with a park filled with young children just up the block. Not too far from Vatican city but need cab. Room itself is in a large house run by a convent. Most pleasant people I have ever met in the hospitality industry!!
Affordable way to experience Rome without the huge expense of staying directly in the city centre. However these apartments are a short walk from one of the main roads into Rome, which has a healthy flow of buses and trams into the city centre. We also visited the Hydromania water park which is on the outskirts of Rome which was also easily achieved via the nearby bus route. There's also a laundry within throwing distance of the apartment which we were grateful for, and also within easy walking distance you can find a choice of restaurants & shops..
The apartment is quite simple and basic, which served our purposes fine, after all we didn't visit Rome to spend all day sat a round in the apartment. The manageress was ever so helpful recommending the best places to see and visit, which ensured we got the most out of our short stay.
We enjoyed this hotel, although a little off the beaten track for tourists there was a feeling of genuineness in the surroundings.
Public transport was a walk away and required changes, but the buses and trams were easy to negotiate and stopped close to major tourist attractions.
The Monteverde area of Rome leads up from the ancient Trastevere neighborhood to the beautiful top of the Gianicolo hill, which offers a breathtaking view of the city. Villa Doria Pamphili, one of the largest public parks in Rome, is on the Monteverde hill and includes the beautiful 17th-century villa and gardens historically owned by the Pamphili family.
