Great place to see Rome from

  • 5 of 5

We had a cosy but brilliant holiday here with 6 adults and 1 child. The location does not get much better than here, so close to walk to all the top tourist attractions and restaurants. Since it is in a back street it is nice and quiet too.

The description was slightly miss leading since it only has one bedroom not two, the living room doubles as the second bedroom. The bedroom is large enough to sleep 5 people (2 double beds and one single bed on the floor) with another double bed in the living room. The owner was friendly, accommodating and kept the place nice and clean.

Access to the apartment is up two flights of narrow winding stairs, so you will need to be comfortable with a small climb. It would be a great place for a families, even up to three or four kids. It was a short ride on bus no. 40 from Termini Station to near Ponte St. Angelo. Very close to the Vatican, only a short walk across the river.

Beautiful, spacious apartment in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Traveled with my husband and three kids. Very spacious and well appointed apartment. The owner was very helpful w/ any details. Location is quiet yet very close to the action of the Navona square. Would definitely stay again if/when we return.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We vacationed here in February for 5 days. We loved the location and the place was charming. Groceries and food are plentiful!

The apartment is comfortable with excellent heating which came useful. The location is great, in the centre yet quiet and off the touristy path. Piazza Navona is just a couple corners away, as is almost everything else.

Restaurants are plentiful of variable quality. For wood fired owen pizza lovers I can recommend Baffetto.

We would highly recommend this place for it's location and size. We were glad we stayed!

Very nice apartment

  • 5 of 5

A very comfortable base for your trip to Rome.

It comprises two good sized bedroom, kitchen/diner and a bathroom. The kitchen had enough plates, glasses and cutlery as well as some pots and pans.

We slept well: beds were very comfortable.

The apartment is in a walking distance to all major sight of the historical city.

We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again and hope to go back to Rome in the future.

Great Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

The stay was fantastic. We were a group of 10 so we rented both Casa Tabaerna and Fontanella. They were in great condition, clean, and very comfortable. They were easy to find and close to everthing we wanted to see. I would definitely stay here again. The area was very nice. There was a place nearby (Forno?) where we went to get a great assortment of meats and cheeses for a very good price. The owner was also great for answering any questions or doubts. Originally we were 6, but two days before we turned into a party of 10. He was very accomodating with the last minute changes.

Nice apartment in a fantastc location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed with a friend. The owner was waiting for us when we arrived. She pointed out the features of the apartment, the local area, and public transportation. The rooms are large with comfortable beds, wifi internet, and TVs. The bathroom is large with a nice shower. The kitchen has everything I could think of to prepare meals for a large family. There was even fresh milk, butter, bread, and treats to get us started. The dishwasher and laundry machine look new. There are several good pizzerias in the area. A grocery store is a short walk down the street.

We'll return for next visits.

Piazza Navona. The most famous square of Baroque Rome stands on the site of Domitianus stadium and the name seems to derive from a popular corruption of the term for the competitive games in agone which were held here. From the times of Domitian on, the place was used almost exclusively for sports events, including the famous August regatta in which the participants wore the colours of the nobles and the civic clergy. Even now the feast of the Befana (January sixth) is celebrated there with a typical market.

Other Activities: Shopping, antiquing, museum.
