Convenient and Clean
We stayed at 2391 Beech St Oceano. It was awesome. The place made you feel welcome and was equipped to share the area and knowledge of the Owners. Bikes a beach cooler, a few bottled waters! Just lovely!
Fantastic apartment, great location, professional hosts
If your intention is to walk all the historic sites of Rome, including (dare I say) the 'touristy' sites, this is a marvelous location to serve as your launching pad. My wife and toddler spent five days in Massimo's lovely Ikea-esque apartment. As the photos indicate, you can literally see the Victor Emmanuel monument from the apartment's window (which, incidentally, is a magnificent testament to Italian unification and serves as an impressive testimonial to Italian taste and style). The apartment is spacious, nicely furnished and, for the most part, equipped with all the essentials. We were greeted by Daniel (spelling?), who was punctual, courteous and helpful. One recommendation, Massimo: provide a second set of keys (this would give your guests more flexibility to come and go as they please, without having to wait for each other at the front of the building). This family-friendly apartment is highly recommended and, without wanting to sound like I am a paid spokesperson for the Italian Ministry of Tourism, I doubt that anyone interested in the High Culture of the West would regret visiting Rome.
Spacious apartment perfectly placed to explore Rome
I'd liked to have given this apartment five stars, certainly its location and general appeal would support that. Daniel, who met us on arrival, was great. Full of information and promptly got us settled in. A real bonus was having Sky including the sports package! I know that sounds awful (who wants to watch TV when visiting Rome?) but the Lions were playing the All Blacks, what more can I say? Just a few maintenance issues stopped us awarding five stars. The kettle wouldn't boil, the dishwasher seemed to work but didn't properly clean the dishes and the second bathroom had a "drainy" smell. If they get this fixed this apartment would be top-rated.
Excellent, with a few limitations
The best feature is the location: just blocks from the Trevi Fountain and the Corso, an easy walk to the Panteon and Piazza Navona, with Piazza Venezia practically next door (there's a glimpse of it out the living room window). Security is excellent, with key and elevator access, as well as a daytime concierge. The place is clean, quiet and adequately furnished in a kind of IKEA-modern style. The beds are comfortable. However, the kitchen equipment is a bit minimal and other things are on the sparse side--only one waste paper basket in the whole place, no garbage bags for waste, no extra sheets or blankets, too few kitchen towels, no toilet paper holder or hooks for bathrobes etc in the bathroom (also inadequate towel racks). Also, contact with the management practically ended after the initial orientation--we received no response to several email inquiries when we had some slight emergencies re. sheets etc. Still, we enjoyed our stay and (with the stated reservations) recommend this apartment.
Hi Max ,
Thanks for your review which frankly I found very strict and contradictory.
It does not look like you've had some discomfort, did not send any email and the apartment was perfect ready.
For towels and sheets, you are getting the standard equipment that are all in the kitchen too.
But it is not nice to write untruths
Thanks anyway, we'll take something useful from your review.
Perfect location to explore Rome
The flat was clean which was a relief because the building itself could have used a good cleaning. Massimo was very helpful with all of our questions both before and after our stay. He arranged transport to and from the airport which was very helpful. Virtually minutes from Trevi fountain. Loved the restaurant which was on the main floor of the building too!
Well located apartment but in need of a little TLC
My first ever review so am keen to be balanced. Location of the apartment is excellent for those wanting to be in the heart of the city. The overall accommodation is well set out and the web description is accurate. The existence of a lift to serve this 4th floor space is essential.
The apartment is however in need of some attention. We were unable to use the air conditioning units and there were no instructions. The dishwasher doesn't work (this has been noted in earlier reviews) and the kettle is temperamental in that it has a mind of its own switching itself on and off before ultimately boiling. The sky box linked to the TV did not work and the tap in the sink of the separate bathroom needs descaling. Finally the help guide in the apartment which sets out recommendations to attractions in the city were all written in Italian (with the exception of the advert for limos to provide transport to and from the airport!!) which I think is a major oversight. Individually these items can be considered minor irritants but I would suggest they need to be addressed to ensure the apartment maintains its undoubted attractions.
