metro stops at 10.20 p.m. and the bus runs every one hour all night.
by bicycle during day time it's marvellous because there is a special bicycle lane along the tiber bringing you to the colosseo
from Termini train station rome's main train station which you reach directly from both airports fiumicino and ciampino)using just one ticket worth 1.5 euro you reach the apartment ( it's just 25 mnts metro (Metro A). From Termini you get to Flaminio metro station (5 minutes) then from Flaminio you get out and immediately you will find the train station to the Labaro stop (from Flaminio it's just 15 mnts. last train to Labaro in the evening 22.20
Flaminio (piazza del popolo) is the heart of the hystorical center of rome so you are living at 15 mnts direct train (no change) to the heart and then just walk to the main turistic spots.
From Labaro it's just 5 finutes walk to the apartment.
We do not live there, and we have a job/family. If there is a problem with the apartment, someone will come to fix it in the same day, but for the check in, we really need to have an appointment. The guest must tell us at what time he will come and call us 30 minutes before arrival and call again once he is in front of the apartment since I will be there but not in the entrance. If the guest does not have a cell phone, he can call from a public phone. There is one at Labaro station, on Flaminio street, on the left. Do not ring the bell since there are people that lives on the site. Nobody will answer, there is no reception.
Do not ring the bell when you arrive at the gate! We do not live there and there is no reception! You will make the other people that lives there angry!! ;)
Do not smoke in the apartment. There will be an expulsion from the apartment for anyone that breaks this rule.

It was a little apartement but had enough place for 4 persons. It was clean and good air-conditioned. The location was good, it was near the subway. I can recommend it.
This apartment was as described - no surprises which was great. It was very large, well furnished and well equipped. Its location was absolutely superb - walking distance to Vatican, Forum, and Piazza Barberini assuming you are willing to walk through Rome. AC worked very well - which was essential.
We gave this 5* - but if you have planned to host a family and cook for yourself it might be a problem (see below).
The hosts were REALLY excellent in replying to my questions - this was our first Wimdu booking and we needed a little advice.
The sound insulation is very good - outside is a busy street but then it is not far to some good restaurants! and the noise was negligible inside.
The apartment was clean on arrival as you would expect.
The electricity went off a few times - trivial to fix if you are told where the power board is so ask!
I am not sure you could cook - the power went off when the dish washer was used, and when the cooker was set to hot on one pan. I am not sure what would have happened if we had tried to cook but this did not worry us as we did not cook :)
There was no working kettle - we asked at checkin but this was not provided.
The apartment is on the 2nd floor - so ~60 steps. Not a problem for us, but be thoughtful if you struggle with stairs.
May sure you ask what flat number it is so you can ring the bell on arrival - we did not know so it was hard to tell the house keeper we had arrived.
Overall though - this apartment is very good, highly recommended and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
The apartment has a really nice view over the river, under the balkony is a busy road which is not disturbing. The apartment was nice and clean when we arrived, everything we asked for was arranged. We arrived at 9 pm which wasnt any problem.
The guy who gave us the key was flexible and always available on the telephone. We could even book 2 more days because we missed our flight, and at 10 pm saturday evening he was still available to give us the keys again.
In short; defenitly value for the money.
The apartment has a beautiful view. It's size is comfortable. The location is quite far from Rome, but it's okay. About every half hour a metro stops and it's a 5-10 minute walk to the metro and a it takes you to piazza popolo in 15-20 minutes. There is one charming restaurant nearby (mama's pizza) which is good and cheap. There was supposed to be a supermarked but the one we found was not open. The apartment itself was quite dirty. There was dust on the floor and in the bathroom were some dirty spots. There were insects (little spiders) that ate our food, so put your food in the fridge. There was a kitchen but the inventory was not complete (one glass, coffee machine without coffee pot). The airco worked well and so did wifi. Inside was a good temperature and quiet. Outside you can hear the busy road. Alltogether the apartment was not great but it matches the low price.
The apartment was clean and comfy with a beautiful view.
Our stay in this appartement was really nice, the host gave comprehensive information about the most important things in advance and the flat was like shown on the pics. Only disadvantage is the motorway directly in front of the house. But with doors closed and aircondition it's very convenient to sleep there. Everything one needs is available, dishes, towels, linens. Very good is also the cooker driven by gas. Only the shower could be cleaner and needs some repair, the water comes out at unusual parts. We had a very good time there and can recommend this flat.
Excellent apartment, beautiful views, excellent balcony.
5 min walk from subway, then about 20 minutes in Rome.
Yet two minuses:
Road noise on the balcony
Curtain in the middle of the room instead of the window, blocking air when it is closed.

Prima appartement, mooi uitzicht, prima balkon.
5 min lopen van metro, daarna ca 20 min in Rome.
Goed te doen
Toch 2 minpuntjes:
Lawaai van de weg op het balkon
Gordijn midden in de kamer ipv voor het raam, airco blokkerend als het dicht is.

Unfortunatly there was a strike on our arrival so there was no metro, no bus and almost no taxi. After two hours we found a taxi that took us there for 30 euro. I communicated with the host but he was not really helpful. Arriving ,we called again so they could open the door. We had to wait like 10 minutes before he arrived. It would have been nice to know that he still had to drive and we should wait some minutes after a tiring day.To walk to the appartment you have to do some stairs. For my wife it is hard to carry the bag so i carried two bags. The person didnt help at all. I know its not necessary but i think it would have been very kind. Entering the studio he didnt explain a lot. I had to ask where were the keys. About the appartment: the bed is really used, pillows are bad, there were no towels for the dishes and almost no material in the kitchen, the boiler doesn't work, it smells really humid like i read in other comments, the floor wasn't clean, there was still a lot's of hair in the toilet, you get a half roll of toilet paper, the shower leaks and makes the whole bathroom wet, the shower it self is almost broken. My advice, Better pay a bit more instead of going all the way to labaro. Later I also heard it's not such a safe area.
Hello There !!!!
Beautiful studio on the river was the advertising. In reality, would in advertising are "Old Down Come Studio on the river" right off the highway and right next to the train to Rome. That was the horror. You could not open the balcony door, because of the noise of the passing trains and because of the traffic noise. In the studio, it smelled musty. Ventilate could only short time, because of the noise from the highway. The motorway is only 20 meters from the apartments. You could not sit outside on the terrace. That just was not possible. The bathroom was shabby worn. We were very disappointed by the property. The pretense of a false fact. The landlord can be seen there. They had not the ability to contact the owner. An African with no European language skills was our contact person. Greeting Dieter Scheffler and Susanne Münch
Schönes Studio auf dem Fluss war die Werbung. In Wirklichkeit müsste in der Werbung stehen " Altes runtergekommenes Studio auf dem Fluss " direkt neben der Autobahn und direkt an der Bahn zu Rom. Das war der Horror. Man konnte die Balkontüre nicht aufmachen, wegen dem Lärm von den vorbeifahrenden Zügen bzw. wegen dem Autolärm. Im Studio roch es muffig. Lüften konnte man nur für kurz Zeit, wegen dem Lärm von der Autobahn . Die Autobahn ist nur 20 m von den Ferienwohnungen entfernt. Man konnte sich nicht nach draußen auf die Terrasse setzen. Das war einfach nicht möglich. Das Bad war schäbig abgenutzt. Wir waren von der Unterkunft sehr enttäuscht. Das Vortäuschung einer falschen Tatsache. Der Vermieter hat sich dort sehen lassen. Man hatte auch nicht die Möglichkeit den Vermieter zu kontaktieren. Ein Afrikaner ohne europäisch Sprachkenntnisse war unserer Ansprechpartner. Gruß Dieter Scheffler und Susanne Münch
