Hi Sandy

We have booked this one for March http://www.romecapitalapartments.com...gli/Miguel-157

price was really good about Euro 120 a night

The booking process has gone smoothly and I found several positive reports from people who had stayed there.

We've booked one near Piazza Navona through sleepinitaly.com ; original listing found through vrbo.com. Sleepinitaly also had one overlooking campo dei fiori that was a studio apartment. They've been very helpful with emails, before and after I booked. We are there just after Christmas, the most expensive time in fact.
I also looked at holiday-rentals.co.uk. UK site but prices normally in euros (obviously as it's Italy!)

there are numerous recommendations on www.slowtravel.com.

also, if you google "apartments in Rome" you will come up with lots of agencies. you should find lots of offers for apartments in Jan as you are booking at such short notice!

have a great trip,

regards, ann

I agree with trying out Sleep in Italy. They can usually arrange just about anything that fits your needs

I usually use Leisure in Rome for friends and family needing apartments. They've always been professional, great, and they have good prices and apartments.....and they treat repeat clients well. I would definitely say check them out and you won't be disappointed....and they have a 3 night minimum in general.

Ann meant www.slowtrav.com, a great resource for travel in Italy and especially for apartment or villa stays. Slow Travel has lots of reviews of apartments and of rental agencies.

I see www.tripadvisor.com lists a huge number of vacation rentals in Rome now. But the entries look more like ads than reviews.

Emerald, we stayed in that apartment in October 2008. It's really spacious with two terraces and beautiful views of the Tiber. There is a restaurant just behind it on a little piazza (exit the building, turn left, turn left at the corner. The resto is on the back side of this building. It's called B4 and we had the most delicious, welcoming meal of our entire Italy trip there. We'll be going again next week. About the apartment--the only downside we found was that it was seriously lacking in silverware (we never found a knife!), no corkscrew, no coffee/tea pot!! Since you have a little time, I'd suggest that if these things are important to you you write and ask them to make sure they are available.

Also in the immediate area: Just to the left of the doorway is a little coffee shop. The owner actually remembered what we wanted each morning and fixed it as we came in (stand and eat your pastry and drink your coffee--it's always cheaper). Very nice people. You can walk to Piazza Navona, Castel Sant Angelo and the Vatican easily from the apartment. Trestevere is a bit of a hike, but we did it.

Next week we're staying in the Rome Capital Apts Feragoli (sp) as we'll have 5 this time.

I hope you have a great trip!
