Great place to see Rome from

  • 5 of 5

We had a cosy but brilliant holiday here with 6 adults and 1 child. The location does not get much better than here, so close to walk to all the top tourist attractions and restaurants. Since it is in a back street it is nice and quiet too.

The description was slightly miss leading since it only has one bedroom not two, the living room doubles as the second bedroom. The bedroom is large enough to sleep 5 people (2 double beds and one single bed on the floor) with another double bed in the living room. The owner was friendly, accommodating and kept the place nice and clean.

Access to the apartment is up two flights of narrow winding stairs, so you will need to be comfortable with a small climb. It would be a great place for a families, even up to three or four kids. It was a short ride on bus no. 40 from Termini Station to near Ponte St. Angelo. Very close to the Vatican, only a short walk across the river.

Ideal to visit Rome

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is ideal to visit Rome in the heart of the historic district, it helps to walk to the main tourist attractions (Coliseum, Navona square, Pantheon, Vatican ...) .There was very close to shops to buy food and make shopping. The apartement is very nice well appointed and warm for winter. The owner was very well organized when we arrived and makes himself available when needed.

Lovely Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in July 2014. Four adults and two children. Location is excellent, apartment was clean air conditioning. and Wi-Fi worked well. Elena was wonderful with arranging transfers from airport and to bus station. We chose private transfer due to the amount of luggage and people. They were prompt and fellow who met us was prompt. Able to provide us with two sets of keys. Kitchen table small for six people. Hot water never an issue everything you need near by. This is a main floor apartment so no windows you could look out of. Neighbourhood felt safe. I would rent again from them again and would rent this apartment again if staying in the area.

Great location and close to many attractions

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for three nights and would stay again. The apartment is nicely furnished, clean, spacious for a two bedroom and very well equipped - wifi, TV, plenty of cooking utensils and crockery, kettle, etc. The beds are very comfortable which is a nice change from apartments furnished with cheap uncomfortable mattresses!

Location wise it is a very short walk from Navona square, on a narrow roman street, and you can walk to all main attractions (we did not need any transport at all asides from airport transfers). It has a supermarket close by which is very handy.

The owner was incredibly helpful from beginning to end, provides useful recommendations.

It is also close to many lovely places to wander round and also eat. Some great ones were Il Corallo for very nice food, great value plus a range of Lazio wines, Enoteca Il Goccetto for a wine.

We would recommend this and return.

Wonderful neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

My mother and I stayed in this apartment for 4 nights. Elina was very responsive, and helped arrange our airport transport, which went very smoothly. The apartment was clean, comfortable and very convenient. We loved the cafe down Via Panico and started every morning there. There were many great sights and restaurants within easy walking distance. Two things I would caution about: First, if there's anyone in your group that has trouble with stairs, the interior stairs to the apartment were a bit narrow and steep. Second, the apartment entrance is right off a very small interior courtyard, which seems to function as a giant megaphone or amplifier. The noise every morning (fellow tenants & construction workers) was unbelievable - almost like they were in the room with us.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry about the noise but sometimes the building needs manteinance and unfortunately for this travelers it happened during their stay.

Unreliable access

  • 3 of 5

Unfortunately, despite advising the owner of our flight details and her arranging a driver to pick us up from the airport, we waited an hour and a half outside the apartment for someone to let us in. Our texts, phone calls and emails weren't answered. A real downer after a days travelling to wait with 2 children worrying that we'd been scammed. This is a basic apartment - there is no living area, just the two bedrooms and a kitchen, however it is in an excellent location. The beds were comfortable and it was clean. I wouldn't get the driver as that costs €80 and a taxi to and from the airport is capped at €48.

Owner's Response: I gave to this traveler an appointment at the apartment at noon when usually take place a check in in my apartment. If they booked a flight with a early morning arrival in Rome i couldn't help them. I try to help all my guests if i have the possibility but it was not fair to ask previous guests to have a earlier check out. About the transfer i want to clarify that the price they payed is due to the fact that they wanted a private one and of course the price is higher than a normal taxi.

Piazza Navona. The most famous square of Baroque Rome stands on the site of Domitianus stadium and the name seems to derive from a popular corruption of the term for the competitive games in agone which were held here. From the times of Domitian on, the place was used almost exclusively for sports events, including the famous August regatta in which the participants wore the colours of the nobles and the civic clergy. Even now the feast of the Befana (January sixth) is celebrated there with a typical market.

Other Activities: Shopping, antiquing, museum.
