|Minimum Stay||3 - 5 nights|
A spacious, comfortable, secure apartment well situated on the fourth floor of an elegant 19th century building with elevator at Via Vittoria Colonna:
We are located at 900 meters from the Spanish steps.
Only a 7/8 minute walk to the Spanish Steps, 10 minutes to Piazza Navona, and 15 minutes to Saint Peter's Cathedral & the Vatican Museum. From this location, the most important historical sights of the Eternal City can be reached very quickly like Trevi Fountain or Saint Angel Castle! And if you don't want to walk you can arrive to Saint Peter's by bus #87 or Colossuem by bus #81 (the bus stop is just in front of our building!)
Search the address on the web and you'll be able to see its excellent location.
The apartment was recently completely renovated. Everything is new and neat, and as you can see from the pictures, it’s very modern, with high quality furnishings. This is a 2 bed rooms apartment: one master suite with en suite bathroom and a smaller bedroom with 2 single beds that can turn into a queen size bed with a second bath. Both rooms have high quality mattresses!
There is also a lovely and spacious living room with a double sofa bed, a dining area and separate kitchen! The kitchen is fully equipped with a dishwasher, washing machine, American coffee maker, kettle, gas stove with oven, fridge/freezer unit, as well as all the other necessary appliances like, iron and ironing board!
The apartment has air conditioning in both rooms and in the living room (daikin emura mini splits, great quality and functioning), parquet floors, iphone-ipod stereo, LCD TV/Sat to watch international tv channels in every room. ADSL & Wi-Fi internet connection keeps you in touch with the world, last but not the least we provide a pc and a printer to let you print boarding passes or tickets for museums or simply surf the web! and a land line to received phone calls from your beloved and to make locals and national phone calls!
Of course, since it’s in a delightful central neighborhood, it is well connected to public transportation to go everywhere and it is well served by a variety of local cafes, great restaurants, supermarkets, and delicatessens / convenience stores. There is a welcoming Italian café for breakfast or lunch only a few steps from the building, by the way: this neighborhood is the safest in Rome!
The apartment has only one key for the main front door and the apartment itself has no keys - only digit codes so that you don't have to worry about losing the keys.
The treatment's friendly and helpful and I’m always trying to make sure my guests have the best experience in Rome. If you want more information, feel free to read the feedback from previous guests that stayed in my apartments (see the comments on listings #247364, 362568, 359819).

Silvio Spicacci Minervini purchased this apartment in 2012
because it is the perfect area. it can be reached by car as no traffic block, and from there u can arrive anywhere in the city
it is incredible silent, which is a plus in roma, and the air conditioning is really excellent.
plus there is an elevator!
great restaurants nearby: you have to try splendor or la barchetta restaurants!
it's silence,you will sleep peacefully!!! compared to roman noise!
Normally the downside of an apartment is you are on your own for tips, recommendations etc. Silvio is, however, a great host and always available, even sending you emails during the stay to stay in touch. This apartment is roomy and spotless, but most of all it is quiet - a wonderful place to escape to after a hectic day in noisy Rome. I would certainly stay here again, and would recommend to friends and family.
This was a great apartment. Amenities were very clean, and home very comfortable. Location was excellent with walking distance to restaurants, shopping, historical places. Silvio arrange for pick up from and to airport, which made very convenient. Would highly recommend this home and Silvio.
We had a great stay here and would recommend it to families traveling to Rome. Great location! We walked to the Colosseum, Vatican and Spanish Steps with ease. Spacious for our family of 4.
Ideal apartment for short stay in central Rome. Easy to get to all major sights. Apartment is small and simply furnished but has all you need for a short stay. Silvio very responsive and helpful, so this makes for a hassle-free holiday.
We were thrilled with the apartment, as it met our expectations beautifully. It was nicely decorated, comfortable, cozy and clean. It has a great location with a bus stop directly outside the apartment entrance and a taxi stand around the corner. Nearby there were countless restaurants & bakeries, farmacia, grocery market, a bank and a nice park down the street. The location proximity to all points of interest was wonderful – easy to get around by bus or taxi and some exploring on foot to everywhere we wanted to see and do.
The apartment is very private, quiet and amazingly secure. It offers an elevator which was very handy to have at our disposal after long days of exploring. We fully utilized the kitchen and all its amenities. The AC units worked well, as did Wi-Fi service and the TV. The host provided ample bathroom linens and paper products. We shopped at the Coop Supermarket a few blocks away (past the park) and prepared meals at the apartment. We would not hesitate to stay here again and certainly will recommend to anyone traveling to Rome.
The Apartment was a little gem well within walking distance to everything. Large living and dining area, two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The kitchen had just about everything you could need, including some supplies to get us started. It was quiet with comfortable beds. The shower in the first bedroom probably needs a little attention.
Silvio was there to greet us and show us around the apartment. He gave very detailed instructions on how things worked, local restaurants, supermarket etc. He was very approachable if something went wrong. He also had an information folder telling you where everything was, including telephone numbers and websites.
There was a great little patisserie over the road if you wanted fresh croissants in the morning. The supermarket was just a short walk away.
Some great restaurants in the area too. The little restaurant around the corner called Pizzeria La Francescana - great home made Italian food. Book a table, this place has queues every night.
The only downside was the second bedroom. There was nowhere to put your clothes, except in the hallway. A small chest of drawers or two bedside tables with drawers would have made it a little more comfortable. For our 3-4 night stay it wasn't too bad but any longer it would have been a bit cramped.
The air-conditioning worked well. Silvio also organised a car to take us to the airport on our departure day. 55 Euro (no tips) was a good fare considering taxis cost 48 euro.
Overall the apartment was 4 stars for its location and 3.5 for the accommodation. Would I stay here again - probably!
This is a very nice flat located within walking distance to the Vatican, Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain and Pantheon. There are restaurants right across the street and around the corner. The beds were very comfortable and the family room was spacious. The wifi worked well and cable tv was nice to have since the olympics were being held during our stay. I would recommend this flat to family and friends.
you can walk everywhere to either piazza di spagna or piazza navona or the vatican.
there are many bus stands just facing the building.
and the tickets are sold in the small bar nexdoor!
you can get to colosseum with a convenient bus!
and we have great restaurants all around our place!
