Excellent location-good for families-not good for couples traveling together
Location was absolutely perfect! You can't ask for a more centrally located apartment. The bedrooms are no longer the same as pictured as some of the furniture has been removed/replaced. Example: in one BR there is no dresser or closet to store clothing-it must be kept in the hallway or on the floor. There are no soft furnishings in the rooms other than the beds so the sound travels well between the rooms. The 4th bedroom (upstairs) has the 'harder' of the beds and was the hardest to regulate temperature - either too hot or too cold. The bathrooms are NOT good for couples sharing the apartment. The only on-suite bath (1st bath) has a frosted glass door to the hall bath so anyone in either room can hear and slightly see the other. The hall (2nd) bath has a square shower that anyone of average size cannot fit into easily. The upstairs (3rd) bath (the updated bath in picutres) is a few stairs up from the upstairs BR and has a half tub (think 3 feet long) and only has a shower wand (so you have to hold the wand while bathing and the wand hose is not long) - this is the only private bathroom in the apartment. Also, there is only a washer...no dryer....and the washer doesn't really spin the water out well so you're left with soaking wet items. There is a laundry with washers & dryers right down the street (less than a block away) which was easy to use and quick in/out. Be warned - there are stairs as soon as you enter the apartment as well as to the kitchen, more to the 4th bedroom, more still to the 3rd bathroom, and more to the terrace. Not an overall issue - just something to be aware of when booking. Plus - the terrace is wonderful at night and very charming. Also - the apartment is up for sale. The agent showed on our check-out day and, though very nice, was insistent that she needed to show the apartment while we were packing and readying for departure.....very uncomfortable and left all of us thinking 'how many other times was the apartment shown during our stay'. Overall - great stay if you're more interested in location and an 'authentic' Italian apartment - definitely NOT updated and definitely NOT modernized. The place is a little quirky with the layout and the artwork. We were 5 adults on holiday (2 couples & single) and the bathroom situation was horrible. It would probably be much better suited for a family if the stairs aren't an issue.
