This charming apartment in the heart of the historic centre is located on the first floor of a very ancient and characteristic building. The apartment comprises a bright and spacious living room with sofa bed for two, a kitchen with dining area, a double bedroom and bathroom with bathtub. From the living room window you can see the beautiful Piazza del Biscione, just behind Piazza Campo de Fiori. The fresco ceiling of the living room, the paneled ceilings of the kitchen and the bedroom, the original lamps, the ethnic carpets create a very eclectic and unique style. It is certainly a peculiar and characteristic apartment, perfect to explore evry corner of the eternal city.

We stayed for 2 and 1/2 weeks in this wonderful apartment just off the Campo Di Fiori. The location is great with easy access to markets, pharmacies, transportation and the central Rome sites. The apartment is a full 1-bedroom with an eat-in, fully equipped kitchen and clothes washer in the bathroom. The only thing missing was a TV set. We brought a portable DVD player for those times when we needed to dereflect. Their airport transfers worked perfectly and the property manager was very helpful.
My husband and I recently spent 9 days in this apt. Both the car they arranged to pick us up at the airport and Raphael who was to meet us at the apt were somewhat late, but not a real long wait. The entrance hall to the apt was dismaying, dark and dingy, but we were pleasantly surprised when we entered the apt. it is very large and comfortable. The kitchen especially is huge. There was some noise at night from the Campo, especially on Saturday night, but otherwise the noise level was not bothersome. The large bedroom had plenty of storage space, and the bed was comfortable. The location is unbeatable: walking distance to just about everywhere and near lots of public transportation options. Now for the downside: we didn't have hot water in the kitchen for the first two days; the plug-in WiFi provided because of general problems in the building worked OK for the first 4 days and then quit. Not getting any help from management I went to a local tech store and found that the WiFi was a pay-as-you-go and had run out of credit. I bought some more time and was reimbursed for it. Ditto for the electric light bulbs I bought. There is no TV. The only structural problem was that the bathtub was deep with no level area on the bottom, so that standing in it to take a shower seemed a bit on the unsafe side. All in all the location and general comfort compensated for these inconveniences, but I probably wouldn't stay there again.
We loved our apartment. We were right off compo dei Fiori. It is within walking distance to all the sights. The apartment is large for Rome. We were very comfortable. Emanuele was waiting when we arrived. He was a great help during our stay. There was some street noise being so close to the compo but we found a sound machine app. for our smart phone and slept soundly.
Excellent location, right in the middle of great restaurants and local flavor. We arrived early evening, had trouble finding the place. Raphael, our contact person seemed to be in a hurry, explained stove function and the refrigerator (it did not get turned on) and rushed out. I had to call three times the following day to find out how fridge and the stove work and again got unfriendly response. The main issue came up when the toilet stopped working. I called the main number since Raphael was not picking up the phone and was told Raphael was our contact person and I should call him. We had to use the toilet downstairs at a restaurant. A plumber showed up 36 hours later worked on it and told us that He did what he could but the toilet needed to be replaced. I called Raphael and He basically checked out saying that we would have to make it work the way it is. The toilet started working intermittently. Water pressure was low in the shower. I would rate it one star based on poor service but rating at three stars because of great location and excellent beds. Also, had we not had the toilet issue I would have rated at five stars. Its probably one of the best locations to stay in Rome. The apartment size was okay for our family of four (two girls ages 9 and twelve).
We spent 10 days in this apt ... perfectly located in the heart of Rome. We enjoyed walking to almost anywhere and having fresh fruit from the market every morning was delightful. The apt has a lot of potential, however we had quite a few issues before, during and after our stay: 1—We waited 40 minutes in front of the building before someone showed up to let us in despite sending multiple text messages as we were getting closer (first when we changed planes in Berlin, then after we boarded the shuttle bus at the Rome airport to city center, and finally when we got on the local bus that took us to the apartment in about 15 minutes ... we got replies to all!) 2—Despite how the apartment is advertised, we had no WiFi. They tried to fix it multiple times without success, although the email and text message we sent them Friday (our first full day) were left unanswered till Monday. 3—Although we found useful things in the kitchen, we had to sift through dusty drawers full of knickknacks. The spice and tea drawers were dusty, too. 4—We had to routinely flush the toilet 3-4 times to make the paper go down. The toilet brush was missing its handle. A few light bulbs were burnt out. 5—Since we were staying 10 days, on the first day we asked and were promised fresh towels towards the middle of our stay but when we actually wanted them we were told it would cost 20 euros. 6—Several months before our arrival we inquired about getting to the apt by public transport. We were told that the shuttle bus from the airport to the city center costs 8-11 euros (it actually was 5 euros!). The management company’s car service between the airport and the apt was offered for 55 euros. Our taxi to FCO was 45 euros for impeccable and punctual service. 7—The websites of the Italian cell companies are in Italian only and we don’t speak Italian, so we asked for help in finding a store nearby to buy a SIM card. The only suggestion we got was to get it in a store that sells cellphones! 8—After we indicated that we wanted to pay the initial deposit and the final balance by Paypal, we got the payment request for higher amounts than what our agreement said. After asking, we were told that we needed to cover some Paypal fees. We learned from Paypal that it's only OK to pass fees to buyers if it is disclosed upfront. After all we got the fees refunded but it took more than a simple request despite providing a clear explanation. – We would not pick this or any other apt managed by this company.
My family and I spent four wonderful days in this great apartment during the first week of May. Great layout with all the necessities of life in a awesome location. Perfect for little kids as well; we have two boys (ages 5 & 7). The whole process was easy and professional from start to finish. We took advantage of the car service from the airport as we were going to extend our vacation with a cruise and had more luggage than usual. Daniele was so good we decided to use him for the ride to the port in Civitavecchia. We not only recommend the apartment, we plan on using it the next time we visit Rome...which will be soon. Grazie Lucrezia!
You are in the heart of Renaissance Rome, but not only: around each corner you find many traces of the ancient Rome.
The apartment is in Via del Biscione, overlooking one of the most characteristic square in Rome.
A few steps away is the famous Campo de Fiori, where since 1869 there has been a flower and fruit market every morning. You keep walking through small streets soaked of history and soon arrive to the Pantheon and Piazza Navona.
From this strategic area, you can easily walk to other extraordinary places such as Castel Sant'Angelo, the Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, St. Peter's Basilica, the Colosseum, the Imperial Forums... or, simply cross Sisto Bridge to explore the secrets of Trastevere and get a taste of real Roman life.
The whole area is safe and wonderful to walk around, full of grocery stores, shopping opportunities, restaurants, lovely wine bars and characteristic taverns.
