We went in the first week of May with family and the flat has 3 double bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and a put-u-up double sofa bed as well. at is located on via della Croce - this in itself is a great recommendation as it is a pedestrianised street - it was not hot when we were there and we were able to sleep without being disturbed by external noise with open windows - huge bonus.
The flat is large and excellently kitted out with all mod cons - including air conditioning which we did not need to use. Plenty of room for the 5 of us! The hosts Fabri and Vale were super - why cannot all owners be like them?!! They very thoughtfully even provide a matched pair of mobile phones for us to use when in Rome. A wizard bottle of welcoming wine was much appreciated.
The flat is very secure - on the 3rd floor of the building - with a lift that worked! It is very comfortably furnished and spotlessly clean.
Fabri organised my birthday party at the Ristorante Lagana and also recommended the Gusto - see separate reviews but these were within easy walking distance and very well worthwhile visiting.
The Spanish Steps are opposite the end of the street but you could easily spend a day or two eating and enjoying the establishments on via dell Croce. There are many restaurants and food shops and bars to enjoy.
One special mention was Fabri organised a mini-bus to collect us from the airport - excellent service and much easier than battling out fares with unknown taxis - so good we used the service to go back to the airport.
All in all a super visit and unhesitatlngly recommended - we will certainly go again!

This apartment was airy and spacious. It is very conveniently located and is a short walk to the Spanish Steps and near Spagna Metro stop. The apartment is located in a retail shopping district and near many, many restaurants, cafes, gelato shops, stores and even a small grocery market. There is no traffic on the street because it is in a pedestrian only zone.
We were greeted by Karina who was informative and helpful. She also patiently waited for us -- and was easy to contact by text and phone -- since our flight was delayed and we missed our connecting flight to Rome. Communication was very good and they were accommodating.
I was traveling with my husband and 3 teenage children. We all enjoyed the place. The bedrooms and other rooms are accurately pictured in the posting regarding this unit. I do want to note that the kitchen is very small. It has all of the typical conveniences but would not be a place to prepare a complicated meal. We did not have any issues preparing the simple meals that we ate in the flat.
Also, the unit does face a street with restaurants. The deliveries for the stores and restaurants do come early and the first morning we were woken by the activity. I personally did not find it to be a problem but, if you are light sleeper and do not fall back to sleep easily, I would want you to know this up front.
Everything worked in the flat and we had no issues with the wifi.
I would definitely recommend this unit to my friends.
