Trip Report Rome apartment review and some Rome travel tips

Jump to last reply

I'm going to write this in segments, as time allows. Please bear with me: I type slowly and this may take a while.

We spent March 16-22 in Rome, where we rented the Vittoria Luxury Terrace apartment for 6 nights, through Rental in Rome. The apartment is at via Vittoria, 50 just a few steps in from via del Babuino, hence about 2 minutes walk from the Piazza di Spagna, the Spanish Steps and the Spagna metro station.

The immediate neighbourhoo, which is largely pedestrianized, houses Chanel, Ferragamo, Gucci, Loro Piana, MiuMiu.... well, you get the picture. There are more atmospheric corners of Rome but there is none posher than this.

We had rented once before through Rental in Rome, whom we found quite satisfactory, SInce we had no problems either time, I cannot say how they would cope in the sort of crisis other reviewers here and on Trip Advisor have described. The property was as advertised; our meeting with their agent was smooth - in short, there were no hitches.

One small irritant with this and other Italian holiday rental companies is their expectation that every respectable citizen travels with a cellphone. The company asks that you contact their agent on arrival to fine tune the timing of your rendezvous. I explained we had no cellphone. (Payphones do exist but they are hard to find and often vandalized or out of order) We agreed by email on a time to arrive at the apartment and agreed that I would be responsible for contacting the agent if there was any slippage.

We were charged the high-season rate, which was 925 E for 6 nights. They also ask for a 200 E damage deposit but the owner's agent waived it when we arrived.

I'll proceed with a description of the apartment but the best overview of the accommodation is this album of photos we took:
