It was the home of a photographer who seemed to do lots of film photography and had heaps of photography books (yay!). You could definitely tell it was a bit of an arty place, which I really liked since it made the apartment feel like home. I could have definitely imagined myself living there - although I might change a few things around I loved the overall feel of the place. It was spacious, light, had a lovely view (I imagine most places do in Rome), and it came with fans. Which came in pretty handy. ;) Plus, even the staircase was looking good (first picture).
But, I can also imagine that Rome might have influenced my opinion of the apartment a bit. I loved Rome, so maybe I just projected that feeling onto the place - at least a little bit.
The apartment was literally right around the corner from the Colosseum, which made it easy to get to, and as I said before (here, here, and here) we ended up walking everywhere.
Anyway, just wanted to give you an insight into our Rome apartment, and hope you do consider staying with AirBnB when you go travelling. It's such an easy, affordable (+ you could get a discount off your first trip if you're signing up for the first time - see link), and nice way to get to know a city.
