We stayed for 4 days in December, just before Christmas. The apartment was clean and comfortable. The building is near the edge of town, and is like a fortress, with 3 different keys to get past the various doors. There is a pretty large master bedroom with lots of storage and a television that gets numerous Italian channels. There is another, smaller bedroom with a single bed and good storage, but strangely no door on the frame. There is a small but well-equipped kitchen that does have a door. The bathroom has a small shower, a large cabinet, and a washing machine. There is a couch that folds into a surprisingly comfortable double be in the living room/dining room. The man who received us, Roberto, is a very nice man and was quite accomodating and definitely dealt honestly with us, but he speaks virtually no English. If I didn't know some Italian, it would have been more difficult to set things up, but still possible. Perhaps his friend Matteo (mentioned on the website) speaks more English? Some neighbors in the apartment building were having an argument one night, which kept us up for a while, but I guess that could well have been the case in a hotel just as well as a normal apartment building where this place is. Two things we hadn't ever considered before this trip: 1) The building cuts off the heat from about 11:00 pm to about 10:00 am, so it got a little chilly overnight, though it did not affect our sleep. 2) The #913 bus comes about 50 meters from the apartment and takes you into town in about 35-40 minutes, connecting with several Metro A stops and ending up in the heart of Rome. If you plan to use the bus to get in and out of town, it would be good to buy a several-day pass, or else have some spare single-ride tickets on hand. You cannot buy them from the bus driver. The nearest place I could find to buy more tickets (after asking several locals) was a tabaccheria about 10 minutes walk to the south (along the bus line). Most people would prefer to stay in a place closer to town, but in our case, we had a family of 5 and this was by far the cheapest option we found. Given the same budget, we would stay there again. It was actually nice to be far away from tourist areas at night, where nobody tried to sign us up for a tour or sell us gaudy souvenirs. We had a chance to meet and talk to a few of the locals, and to have some excellent pizza and kebab at some local places that never see tourists.
