Ideal for 2 couples + friends or a family with children + friends. 120 sq meters, 3 bedrooms, 3 ensuite bathrooms, a very large living/dining room. Quiet, airy, bright (windows look south). In the heart of Rome, yet away from it all, thanks to its location on the first floor of a small building at the end of the large courtyard of this very private palace.

About Filippo Massimo Lancellotti

I am married to my wife since 31 years and we have two adult sons. I have lived, among others, in the US, Spain, Switzerland and in Hong Kong. I am a keen sailor

Filippo Massimo Lancellotti purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Filippo Massimo Lancellotti chose Rome

The decision to buy Orsetto had to do with its location at the center of Rome, its exceptional quiet, the perfect layout.

What makes this apartment unique

'Really great flat near Piazza Navona and a great stop to make home base for your daily travel around Rome. The bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen were great. Very secure location and absolutely no noise from outside at night. Great value.' (quote from one guest's review)

Orsetto is a very quiet, brightly lit, airy apartment. It has lots of space; guests will enjoy the privacy of the bedrooms with their ensuite bathrooms. Most tourist locations are within walking distance, and the neighborhood is quiet, friendly and provided with all the necessary shops.

Location is perfect!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The six of us were very happy with our week spent in this apartment! The 3 bedrooms are actually larger than they appear online – especially the smallest bedroom. Having a washing machine and dryer was terrific especially after arriving after a week and a half elsewhere. The apartment is light and bright and well-equipped.

But the best part of this apartment is its location. We could've stayed on just this alley and had all of our needs met! Directly across the street was a fabulous little pizza café; a few feet to the left was a great spot for morning coffee; travel a few more feet to the left to find a fabulous restaurant Ristorante Orso 80( we had 3 meals here including a delicious Sunday antipasta lunch and all were terrific!); another few steps and you come to our second favorite restaurant , Lagana (2 meals here including a birthday celebration for which the owner went out of his way to help us celebrate in style !). In addition to those fabulous restaurants and several others, there is a stunningly beautiful church, a small market, a barbershop, a jewelry shop, an art/gift shop, and a bakery all within a quarter of a mile! The location is also a 15 minute walk to the Spanish steps and Navona Plaza.

We all highly recommend this apartment!

Close to Everything!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location. So close to Navona, Pantheon and river. Lots of neighborhood restaurants.

Don't forget to empty the water from dryer before using. Not something I was familiar with at home.

Three lovely bathrooms.

Orsetto is the Gold Standard

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in March, 2017. I have two adult children and each had their own private bedroom and bath en suite, which was important factor in selecting this location. That and the overwhelming positive reviews by the guests and owner Fillippo's responses.

I left a phone message with Iryna before we arrived at the apartment. We weren’t sure how to enter the outer door, but were later shown which buzzer to push on the wall. (Who knew?) Iryna was terrific, and spent a long time showing us around and making us feel very comfortable.

The apartment is spacious and comfortable and very clean. It was a peaceful and tranquil setting. NO street sounds whatsoever. The washer and dryer came in very handy, as we had been travelling a week before arriving. We picked up a few things at a small grocer up the street and cooked a meal for the kids when they arrived. It was just like home!

It is such a lovely and convenient location. (We walked to the Vatican.) The restaurants on the street or nearby were all great, with Ristorante Laganà being a standout.

This was our first VRBO rental and was definitely the standard we now use to judge other places. This one was tops!

Large aparment in great location

  • 3 of 5

I stayed in this 3 bedroom apartment with my two teen age daughters and their father from

April 12 through April 15th. It was in a great location for site seeing- about a 5 minute walk to the Piazza Navonna and about a 10 minute walk to the Spanish Steps. The neighborhood was very quaint- cobblestone streets and several cafes. We would recommend Orso 80 which was a few steps away from the apartment. The apartment has a courtyard and a large door which was locked at night which was nice. The apartment had a washer and dryer which was a huge plus. Irina met us there and it was nice to be able to ask her questions and have her explain things in the apartment. The apartment was a bit worn and could be spruced up a bit. The stairway was a bit wobbly and would not recommend it for toddlers or small children. Without being too graphic, one of the bathrooms had clearly been used prior to our arrival which made me wonder if it had been cleaned and didn't set a great tone for me.

Great Space with a Few Needed Improvements

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this apartment for 4 nights in September. It is in a fabulous location, right next to Piazza Navona and close to a taxi stand. Ample restaurants to choose from right outside the door. Having only one step to enter in the apartment was very convenient, and it was in a quiet location. There were 5 of us, and having 3 separate ensuites was perfect! The bathrooms were very large, the showers had great water pressure, the AC worked great, and the apartment was very clean. With that being said, we did have a couple minor issues. We only received 1 set of towels per person, which wasn't that huge of a deal, but 2 would have been better for 4 nights. We were short one set of towels upon arrival, and had to contact Iryna after she had left. She insisted on the phone that there were 5 sets, and after a lot of confusion and back and forth, we finally conveyed to her that there were not, and she came back to give gave us the another set. While very spacious and having everything you would need for a great vacation, the apartment is a little rough around the edges, and starting to show some wear. Two of the beds were lopsided, though still comfortable (a minor detail that is easily fixable in my opinion, and makes a difference). Another concern was that you had to use a key to lock and unlock the apartment door from the inside. One night my mother decided to stay back at the apartment, and we had to make sure to leave a set of keys for her because she wouldn't have been able to get out of the apartment in case of an emergency if we locked the door! The addition of a deadbolt on the inside of the door would be a much safer alternative. With the negatives aside, overall I felt the apartment was a good value for the money, and I would stay again if there was just a little more attention to detail.

Owner's Response: dear Guest, as usual I thank a guest who points out misgivings, so that we may fix them. I will write to you separately concerning the beds to understand better. As for the main door keys, installing door knobs is technically and aesthetically unadvisable given the structure of the entrance metal doorgate. We always give our guests an accurate description of how to operate it. As for the towels, I'm sorry for the misunderstanding. Irina is always there for our guests and a trusted assistant. Hope to see you again!

PIAZZA NAVONA is one of the grandest piazzas in Rome, a triumph of baroque art, where Bernini and Borromini challenged each other with their formidable masterpieces. The fountain of the Four Rivers by Bernini faces the great church of Sant'Agnese in Agone (St. Agnes), by Borromini. Nearby, in Corso Rinascimento, Borromini built one of the finest examples of Baroque, the magnificent church of Sant'Ivo alla Sapienza (St. Yves), inside the National Archives Palace. Don't miss it!

Piazza Navona is busy all day, except in the early morning, its best time.

VIA DELL'ORSO is a characteristic street of old medieval Rome, prior to the baroque period. It is a limited traffic street, very quiet, and yet very close to most visiting sites.

Taxis to/from airport have fixed rate (7.00am-11.00pm); at night the rate is by the meter.

Private pick up service to/from airport to Orsetto (3 to 8 people) is in the range of € 50/75.

Taxi from station to Orsetto costs about € 15.
