I have real mixed feeling about this place. Huge pro: the location, (on the corner of via Palermo and via Boschetto in Monti) is fantastic. You can walk anywhere in 20min or less, except the Vatican, which would take longer. Monti is a really nice urban neighborhood and a quieter area than the neighborhoods around the Pantheon etc. Other pros: The kitchen works fine and there is just enough equipment to cook a decent meal. It's mostly quite clean except for some of the dishes. The bed is really comfortable. The elevator works well. It's very secure--you need 3 keys to get in and out. Con: It's filled with cheap stuff--weird "art", hodge podge furniture and the shower sucks. if you don't care about the latter, the place would be a good choice, especially for its location and area calm. The owner Paola, is easy to reach and quick to respond. Overall, i think it's worth the money--under €800 for the week.
Here's the link on VRBO (but she has it on airbnb and homeaway too):

I do love the Monti area too. Stayed there in 2017, 2018 and will likely book 2019 very soon but i will only be in Rome two days this summer en route home. Thanks for this review Jan.
