|Minimum Stay||4 - 5 nights|
Location, location, location...Attico Arcadia represents the quintessential accommodation in Rome. A stone throw away from major landmarks such as Piazza Navona, Campo de' Fiori and the Pantheon we a sure that your stay in this stunning apartment will remain in your hearts and minds for many years to come.
Rome city centre penthouse with views over the roofs of Rome and the Vatican. All of Rome's major landmarks such as Saint Peter's, Piazza Navona, the Pantheon, Piazza di Spagna, the Colosseum, the Roman Forum and Capitol hill can be reached by foot. The high fashion shopping district is only a walk away, the same for the Campo di Fiori farmer's market where you can find fresh fruit and vegetables every day of the week (closed Sundays). The area is also characterized with bustling cafes and restaurants. If you wish to stay at home and enjoy a quiet dinner on the deck overlooking Rome, there is a supermarket just around the corner where you can find all sorts of fine Italian produce. They key attraction of this area is what people refer to as 'hidden Rome'. Walk out from the apartment and take the little side alleys that characterize this Medieval part of the city where you will discover hidden squares featuring buildings with stunning architecture. Most museums are now open on Sundays, the Capitolini museum, the Vatican museum, the Galleria Doria-Pamphili and the Galleria Borghese (must book online) can all be reached on foot. And after visiting the latter why not enjoy a stroll in the Villa Borghese park from where you can reach the Picio with its breathtaking views of Rome. From the apartment you can also cross the Tiber river and enter Trastevere with its bustling nightlife, here you will find the best restaurants such as Le Mani in Pasta in Via dei Genovesi and lots of bars and cafes. The best truffle ice creams are just down stairs in Piazza Navona at the Tre Scalini bar. The best brunch or proper English breakfast (waffles, pancakes, french toast) can only be found at Babington's on the Spanish Steps. On the way back why not stop off at Valentino or Armani's and treat yourself to something new. For sure staying at Attico Arcadia will be memorable.
Thank you Alex, for allowing us to use your home for our Rome "Home away from home".
The apartment is very centrally situated, on a very quiet narrow street, in a historical setting.
We spent 9 days there - daily walking to all the various sites that a tourist wants to see - and many that tourists don't get to see!
We purchased fresh fruit, yogurt, cheese etc at the nearby market for breakfasts in the apartment.
At the end of the day, on returning home, close to the front door are welcoming restaurants/cafes/wine bars (special mention to Cantina and Cuccino, and Mimi e Coco.)
Unfortunately for us it was too cold to make use of the outdoor space at the apartment, however the wall of glass allowed us to take in the beautiful view, with St Peter's Basillica dome in the distance, from inside.
The one problem we had, the power went out, we were quickly able to contact Alex by phone and the problem was quickly rectified by a neighbour who came to our aid.
Thanks again Alex, I would not hesitate to recommend the apartment, and would happily stay there again.
This apartment is extremely comfortable, very clean, well-stocked, and in a great location. It is small, but laid out quite cleverly on two-and-a-half levels, so it doesn't feel cramped. The bed is clean and very comfortable. The balcony has an interesting view and a very private feel. We were even treated to a surprise visit on the balcony by a beautiful cat who, apparently, lives in a neighboring apartment. Go downstairs to the charming cobblestone street, turn either direction, and find yourself within steps of a plethora of restaurants, shopping options, a bank, a very good grocery, ice cream shops, produce markets, and endless people-watching. You don't need a car at all. This apartment is located in a very vibrant area, yet after a day of fun in Rome, you can cozy up in your quiet little nest. I highly recommend this apartment and will stay here again for sure.
I often work in Rome so I've stayed in many apartments. This one has unfathomable charm. The bedroom and bathroom are up in a loft area accessed by a few steps. The kitchen is sunken below. The whole apartment is bathed in sunlight all day. Alex has perfectly equipped the apartment so you don't need to dash out for soap before you can even shower. The kitchen is fully provisioned so, should you choose to, cooking is easy. But the area is filled with restaurants and life so you can easily eat out walking a few steps. The most amazing feature is the balcony. I spent every evening outside enjoying the cool Roman nights trying to burn the unequaled view into my brain.
We were staying for almost 2 weeks
Location is the best! we walked everywhere
apartment itself is cute and has everything you need and more
balcony and view ... breath taking !!
coffee every morning on balcony with distant sound of ROME... what else would you want visiting there?!!
we love it.
Alex was easily available via email
getting from airport by taxi great
Alex's housekeeper was waiting for us and showed : what, how and where !
If back to Rome will always chose this place and Klaudiusz
I don't want to say what everyone else has said. The apartment looked as shown in the photos. I did wonder where they steps behind the kitchen area led and those are to the bedroom & bathroom. The bathroom that isn't shown has a tub and shower. There is a washing machine in a closet that truly came in handy. There is a rod for hanging clothes or you can hand them on a line that is provided on the terrace. The bed is king size and very comfortable. There is a desk area that has multiple Rome travel books. The terrace and its view is fabulous. The location is superb. It is in a quiet little alley. There is an adjacent street that has a lot of restaurants without the many shops that draw tourists. We were able to walk to Piazza Navona & Campo di fiori within less than 5 minutes, Pantheon 5-7 minutes, and Vatican 20 - 25 minutes. We walked home from the Colosseum and it was about 30 minutes. Trevi Fountain was about 15 minutes. Everything was doable. We never met Alex but he was easily reachable by email. We never had a need to reach him for anything for the apartment. The elevator was great with luggage but it is small. I would defintely rent this apartment again and suggest it to friends. You will be very pleased.
Terrific location, small, really only good for 2 people. We found it comfortable and homey. As others have noted, there are internal stairs with no handrails, so be sure you can navigate that. King-size bed with access from one side only. The view of church domes and the regular ringing of church bells reassured us that we were actually in Rome! Most of our 9 days there we found good places to eat in the immediate vicinity, especially the Tuscan restaurant on the right just after turning right into Piazza Pasquino from the apartment. One negative for us is that the bed linens and towels had been washed in a floral fragrance soap which took several days to air out -- we'd really suggest using plain unscented soap for those of us who are sensitive to strong scents. It made for a great vacation for us, with walking distance to so much of what visitors want to see in Rome, and a nearby taxi stand (and bus access) for those more distant sights.
Location, location, location... in the centre of Rome the Arcadia penthouse represents the quintessential accommodation for those wish to visit and discover the hidden secretes of Rome. A stone throw away from either Piazza Navona where you can enjoy the best truffle ice cream at 'i tre scalini' or from Campo de' Fiori where you can shop for fresh fruit and vegetables, we are sure that the Arcadia penthouse will stay in your heart and minds for many years to come. All major landmarks such as the Vatican, the Colosseum, the Spanish Steps, the Pantheon and the Trevi Fountain can be reached In 20-30 minutes on foot. For those who wish to experience Rome night life the surrounding area is packed with bustling trattorias, restaurants and bars and trendy clubs. In addition Italian design, fashion and style can be found in the many boutiques that enrich the streets of the area.
