I stayed at silvio's place for a 5 days in march with my family (group of 5). We give the apartment a full 5 stars! If you are coming to Rome & this apartment is available, you should take it. The apartment is very spacious, 3 bed rooms apartment – living , dining room with a fire place, kitchen 3 baths. balcony and courtyard (these last 2 are really lovely). It is really quite large, comfortable, lots of natural sunlight. Kitchen is small but has everything you need including a clothes washer. We ate in for breakfast & a couple of dinners given how easy it was to do so. Wi-fi was good & strong. The location is fantastic. Full grocery just down the street with full cheese and meat counter & fresh bread. Daily farmer’s market around the corner every morning. Plenty of restaurants – both fancy ones & simple local taverns. Be sure to get a gelato & walk down via del Corso (2 blocks from the apartment) along with all the locals out for their evening stroll. It’s 2 minutes to Spanish Steps, and 5 minutes to Plaza del Popilio or the Pantheon. At the Spanish Steps there is a subway stop: take it about 5 stops one-way & you are at the Vatican or about 5 stops the other way & you are at the Coliseum/Roman Forum. There are busses that can take you to the Villa Borghese or take a 30-minute walk thru the park to get there. Another plus about the location is its silence because of its location between spanish steps and via del corso. While there are plenty of tourists in the area visiting the Spanish Steps, shopping & going to dinner, they go back to their hotels in other areas of the town. So if you want to have a bit of quiet in the evening, this place is for you. Silvio is great. he’ll send you a lot of helpful information about the apartment and the area nearby, including links to things like museum ticket offices & the transit authority. he answered all the questions we had within a day. he can arrange for someone to meet you at the airport and drive you to the apartment. It cost less than either a cab or 5 people taking the public transit. You should take this opportunity as it is a great deal & makes your arrival in Rome an easy one. We spent another 2 weeks in Italy before staying at spanish steps apartment. Of the various accommodations we stayed in this was the most enjoyable.
