Sleeping in Rome

I am going on a European honeymoon this May. We will be spending just over a week in Rome and are hoping to book an apartment through rentalinrome. Has anyone use this service?

We are considering 2 apartments, one is near Via Etruria, a 20 minute walk south east from the Colloseum. The other is just (5 minutes) north east of the vatican. Both are near metro stations. Any suggestions on the pros and cons of these areas? I know that both are on the outskirts, but we don't mind walking.

Thanks for any suggestions!

Hi Kate, I don't know anyone that has used rental in rome but I have heard great things about another similar company; cross-pollinate. It might be worth checking out just to contrast and compare.

We used rentalinrome three years ago with great success. The apartment was just as advertised. We would use them again. I am not familiar with the areas you describe, you may want to check for restaurants and other services in these areas to see which may be a better fit. I think most of Rome is covered by Google Streetwise - it's good to see the neigborhood.

I would check out the cancellation policy of the rental places. Some places want all payment up front and will not give back any refund if you cancell within 30 days.
