Huge apt. with lots of light and lots of outdoor space and a prime location

  • 4 of 5

Pros:

- Location is perfect, besides being walking distance from all the major sites and the night life/restaurants of campo de fiori and trastevere, the street itself is very quiet. The next street over, which runs parallel to the Tiber does generate some traffic noise but that dies down at night and two of the three bedrooms are located on the quiet side of the apt. Over all we did not have any issues sleeping or with the city noise. Stores/shops/restaurants are 5 minutes away. In addition being right next to the Tiber and on the 5th floor meant there was a decent breeze most of the time and this apt. has many windows and doors that open.

-Apt. is as described/pictured. In fact it was bigger than I expected. Our group of 4 included a 4 year old and a 6 year old and they enjoyed ripping and running around the apt.

-Nice outdoor space, one large terrace that we ate dinner on multiple times, one smaller terrace off of one of the bedrooms, and a narrow space on the front side of the apt. which is not big put I popped a chair out there with a bottle of red and enjoyed the view of the ponte sisto and the Tiber.

-The apt has almost everything you need, the kitchen has all the basics (fridge/freezer, gas range, microwave, cutlery/dishes/glasses/pots/pans and dishwasher that we did not use) we cooked multiple meals in the kitchen, there is also a washing machine in the kitchen.

-The living space is more than ample, tv has a bunch of italian cable but also BBC news, AC is available in every room and works fine, that is a snooker table you see in the pics and the felt is a little beat up but that's a minor issue compared to how frustratingly small those snooker table pockets are.

-The apt. is full of paintings, books etc and has a very lived in feel, you also cannot help but notice the many awards for Claudio Angelini whom you can look up on wikipedia

Cons:

- The 2nd and 3rd bedrooms have low ceilings which really isn't a big deal since you will mostly be sleeping there and there is ample common space elsewhere.

- The 3rd bedroom, which we did not use looks like its a single or double or a pull out bed of some sort since we didn't use it we never really found out

- This apt. is old and shows it in some places like the bathrooms but everything is functional and these little issues are easily overlooked.

- The wifi does not penetrate the entire apt.

- No laundry detergent or paper towels we bought the first but not the second

Great location. Not really adequate for 8 adults

  • 3 of 5

The location of the apartment is terrific. Walkable to all the major sites. The terrace outside is wonderful in the morning sun. AC worked well, and it was hot when we were in room.

There is an old pool table in the property, but not usable due to torn felt. The shelves are filled with books on many subjects giving it a very lived in feel.

The beds were not adequate for 8 adults. One of the double beds is a fold out couch in a common room. Another is a day bed which would work fine for children. It also helps if 4 of the adults are very short, as 2 of the bedrooms have extremely low ceilings.

The coffee pot carafe was broken, and not replaced. Be prepared to buy or bring dishwashing soap, toilet paper and paper towels.

The elevator worked fine and was helpful with moving luggage.

Exquisite apartment in the perfect location!

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is beautifully furnished with antiques, lovely art work, and books all in the old Roman style. It gets very high marks for style and elegance, as well as location on the Via Giulia, one of Romeʻs most elegant Renaissance streets. It is very close to the lovely Piazza Farnese (my favorite Roman Piazza), the Campo dei Fiori, and Piazza Navona, and yet is reasonably quiet. It has two terraces with delightful views over the rooftops of Rome and even has a good view of the River Tiber. Olga and Manuel are delightful to work with, though I personally feel that it would be so much easier for all concerned if payment could be made by Credit Card. There was some confusion and inconvenience having to pay either by cash or Paypal. The apartment is very spacious, but not all the sleeping arrangements are equally comfortable. The kitchen was rather poorly equipped and neither it nor the bathrooms were as clean as we would have liked (old, dirty sponge, no paper towels etc). It was actually quite difficult cooking in the kitchen and I would recommend, instead, enjoying the many lovely restaurants nearby.

Very authentic in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was very authentic and picturesque in a perfect location for walking to all sites of interest. Accommodations were very comfortable for us and another couple.The owner and housekeeper were very responsive when we discovered we had left something behind in the apartment. They went way beyond the call of duty to get the item forwarded to us later in our trip. We would definitely rent this apartment again on our next trip to Rome.

Live in Style Like a Roman!

  • 5 of 5

If you are searching for authentic style and a gracious location, search no more! This amazing top floor (5th & 6th) apartment is in a fabulous location- steps from the Palazzo Farnese and Campo di Fiore, just over the Ponte Sisto to Trastevere, a short walk to the Jewish Ghetto, Piazza Navone and just about any other tourist sights you'd want to see. Yet you are part of an exclusive neighborhood! We spent 5 nights enjoying comfortable beds, charming antique decor and the beautiful terraces -second one is off the master bedroom and has the same view. The front windows oversee the Tiber River and all the activity there. The elevator is small but efficient but we loved the staircase- so old and worn by previous occupants! The building is very secure as is the apartment- do be sure to figure out the locks and ask Manuel to give you a lesson before he leaves. This apartment is the real deal with tile everywhere, beamed ceilings ( yes some of them are a bit low) tastefully furnished with antiques and well supplied kitchen with washer and dryer. The second bedroom is up one flight from the den and has it's own bathroom. One of our party decided to use the white pull out sofa in the office/den instead of the smaller bed in the third bedroom, which was also up a narrow flight from the living room. The pullout was fine and since the apartment was plenty big enough for four people, ( 1 couple and 2 singles) we had no need of that room. We had no problems while we were there and enjoyed strolling the neighborhood every evening., stopping for gelato or picking up a bottle of wine to enjoy on our terrace under the stars of Rome!

Large, Lovely with Old World charm, in the perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We booked the apartment after having had our money stolen by an apartment rental company here in Rome called Rome City Apartments. We now feel like we were lucky to have needed something new, as this apartment is truly special. It sits right on the Tiber river in the old city center of Rome and we could walk to everything. It is close to Piazza Navona and Trastevere. It is within walking distance of the Spanish Steps and all the high-end shopping. The neighborhood is full of Palazzos and great restaurants, yet on a very exclusive (and famous) street, so it is peaceful at night for sleeping too. I think had we not been cheated out of our Spanish Steps apartment we might have disliked the noise in that area anyway. This is more luxurious.

The photos and description by the owners are accurate, if not humble, in their description of their lovely home. Their property manager, Manuel, was right on time to let us in and provide us with keys. Olga, the owner, made some great recommendations for dinners and morning coffee, and we were delighted to get to know her. One night when the restaurant we chose was too full to take us, they took us anyway, when they heard we were Olga's guests. She is clearly loved in this neighborhood.

We will definitely be back and we are delighted we ended up here. We stayed 5 days and the price is a bargain for the size and beauty of the apartment.
