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.

Amazing Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Stayed with my husband and 3 children. Great apartment. The owner accepts only cash, so be prepared. The caretaker was very helpful despite speaking little English. He got his points across and gave us great information.

The apartment is wonderful. Lots of character and plenty of room. Washer and dryer too! Great area, lots to do in close proximity.

Super Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was wonderful!! We were in Rome for a week with a family of five (two adults and three children). The location was right in the middle of everything (Vatican, Trastevere, Campo de' Fiori, etc). We walked to all of the major sights in Rome. Not to mention the road it is on is of historical importance (Via Giulia, google it).

The apartment had an amazing terrace where you could relax. What you don’t realize is that the two main buildings next to the apartment are the French Embassy (Plazzo Franese) and Palazzo Spada both built in the 1500’s and worth visiting.

The apartment was well appointed with all the necessary items and was extremely comfortable. It was very spacious and the billiards table was a big hit with my three boys.

I highly recommend this apartment to anyone who is visiting Rome. It has plenty of room for two couples or a large family.

Great apartment, terrible caretaker!

  • 4 of 5

We really loved the apartment, it is spacious, historic, and has a lot of character. It has lovely tiles in the kitchen and bathrooms and a fantastic terrace. We didn't like the caretaker though and, in fact, never saw him. We waited over an hour outside the apartment with our luggage for someone to finally let us in but it was not the caretaker, someone else he knew. Later in the week some workmen let themselves into the apartment at 7:30am and then apologized saying that the caretaker had not told them that there were people staying in the apartment. It was very disturbing and disappointing because we really liked the apartment but the owner needs to have a more responsible caretaker. I tried to call his cell phone during the week when we had some trouble with the keys but he did not reply. We felt that we had no one to communicate with once we were there and something went wrong.

Beautiful Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this fantastic Rome penthouse for a short holiday stay between Christmas and New Year's. We were 6, including grandparents, parents and two teens.

The pictures fail to fully capture the space and beauty of the apartment, furnishings and terrace. The location is fantastic, with easy walking access to the Vatican, Campo dei Fiori and Piazza Navona. Once in Rome, we walked everywhere, with no need for taxis or public transport.

With such a short stay, we spent most of our time out and didn't really get to fully enjoy the features of the flat, including the kitchen and billiard room. And, being winter, we were unable to spend much time on the terrace. We would gladly return for a longer stay.

As mentioned in other reviews, although the apartment is large, there are only two real bedrooms. Our daughters shared the pull-out sofa in the study, which they found comfortable.

Overall, this rental was excellent quality and value. Can't imagine ever staying in a Rome hotel again.

A Roman Experience

  • 4 of 5

Six family members stayed at the apartment for five nights. Location is excellent - we walked to most attractions - the Vatican, Piazza Navona, Spanish Steps, the Forum and Colisseum. Two minutes from the Campo De Fiori This is an older, bur character-filled apartment. But the rooftop terrace is wonderful. Had to watch elecrical usage. The elevator is tiny - can only fit three persons, so we did a lot of walkingup and down five flights. Be advised that the third bedroom is not really usable - the ceiling s very low. So we used the study for the third bedroom. Also, one of the bathrooms (in the master) is very tiny, Agree with other reviews that the apartment could be a bit better furnished with a supply of toilet paper and better ( and more towels) and that instructions in English on how to use the washer and dryer would be very helpful. Not much space to hang your clothes either Refrigerator had not been cleaned out when we arrived either and apartment could use a good cleaning. But there is a market just up the street and a great Pasticerria ( Nonna VIncenzo's, fro Sicilian styel pastries and doughnuts) both on VIa di Mascherone . Owner also recommended 2 good restuarants - Pizza Re and Costanza's - which we ate at and enjoyed .
