About this listing

Lovely one-bedroom apartment with spacious, leafy terrace, perfect for enjoying a quiet aperitif or dinner on a balmy Roman night! Located in the very heart of Rome's historical centre, in a recently refurbished building with elevator.

The space

Lovely one-bedroom apartment just a couple of minutes from the Spanish Steps, on the second floor of a recently refurbished 17th century building with elevator.

There is a spacious living room with two front-aspect French windows overlooking one of the quieter streets in the Spanish Steps area.

The bedroom has a comfortable double bed and ample built-in wardrobe (as well as additional linen and towel storage). It is rear-aspect, leading to a gorgeous leafy terrace that looks onto the internal courtyard. The terrace is furnished with an outdoor dining table and chairs, perfect for enjoying a quiet breakfast or lunch or even hosting a dinner party on a balmy Roman night!

The living room – which includes a small open-plan kitchen – is stylishly furnished with dining table and chairs, a sofa-bed, bookshelves and a piano.

There is one bathroom with shower, and a separate laundry room.

The apartment is in a small building, occupying the entire second floor, and comes with everything you need for a comfortable stay away from home: wifi, air conditioning, washing machine, hair dryer, stereo, sheets and towels (of course), electric kettle, coffee maker, cooking utensils, and various maps and guides to Rome. And because dirt and clutter are my two pet peeves, it's also super tidy and squeaky clean!

The apartment is perfectly located for exploring Rome's historical center: all of the major attractions, including the Trevi Fountain, Piazza Navona, the Colosseum, Campo de' Fiori, Piazza del Popolo, Villa Borghese, Piazza Venezia, are within easy walking distance. The area is also well served by public transport: the Piazza di Spagna metro station (only three stops from Termini) is less than a five minute walk away, as are numerous buses. And there is a taxi station just around the corner, which is really convenient for getting back to the airport of to Termini if you don't feel like lugging your bags around public transport.

The Spanish Steps area is also great for shopping – with the legendary Via dei Condotti just around the corner – and is filled with countless amazing restaurants, bars and coffee shops. And for those who don't want to eat out for every meal, there are several well-stocked supermarkets within easy walking distance.

Guest access

Access to all amenities and features, including private terrace and laundry room. Nothing shared or off-limits. Access also to communal storage room, where luggage can be stored past the check-out time.

Interaction with guests

I am often abroad for work, so you will be met at the apartment on your arrival by the housekeeper, who will give you the keys and explain everything you need to know. Neither I nor the housekeeper come around the property unless there is an emergency, or a guest specifically requests our presence.

House Rules
No smoking
No parties or events
Check in is anytime after 12PM (noon)

Just keep the place in order (i.e. try avoid breaking things, rearranging furniture, staining the bookshelves, things like that), don't make TOO much noise, and please avoid smoking inside – if you're a smoker, there's a great terrace where you can enjoy all the cigarettes you want! And then, of course, the obvious things you'd pay attention to in your own home, like not burning the place down by leaving the gas on in the kitchen, and – though the Spanish Steps area is one of the safest in Rome – not buzzing in anyone you don't know/aren't expecting.

The apartment is located in a really nice area, walking distance to Trevi fountain, Spanish steps and Pantheon, 15 min walk to the coliseum. The building and apartment are beautiful and really clean, everything looked like the pictures!

Had a great stay at TJ's place! Apartment is in a nice area near shopping and restaurants. Within walking distance to the Spanish Steps. Taxi station is very close by. Great wifi and plenty of hot water. Thanks TJ for hosting us!

TJ's apartment is in a great location, near to both the Spanish Steps and the Trevi Fountain, shops, buses, taxis and metro stop. The apartment is very clean and well equipped and Jun was there to meet us on arrival to show us the apartment and answer our questions. We can recommend Le Grotto, just downstairs, for dinner (make sure you sit inside), and also the Blue Ice Gelato place on Via dei Due Macelli, a 5 minute walk away. The lift in the apartment building was an added bonus. Thanks TJ for providing us with a secure and clean place to stay in your amazing city!

Definitely recommend Tj's place for a stay in Rome. Super central could walk everywhere from the location. Always felt safe and at home. We were only really in the flat for sleeping - we ate out for every meal (if you wanted to cook it is possible but its quite a small space). The only reason I have given it a four star and not a five is because the shower was a bit iffy in that it was cold/hot erratically and sometimes the toilet would constantly be running which was quite loud and annoying when trying to sleep.

TJ's place is perfectly located near the Spanish Steps and within walking distance to other major attractions such as the Popolo Piazza, Trevi Fountain etc. The building is beautiful and the apartment is very cosy. From the bedroom, you would sometimes hear people from the streets talking, neighbours in the backyard chatting or the sound of the heater from another apartment but staying in a beautiful old building in the city centre, I guess this completes the Roman experience. TJ is also a wonderful host. Though we never got to meet her, she was always very prompt and responsive, and is a very friendly and generous person. Definitely a lovely place to stay!

We lived in TJ's apartment last year and dreamed to return. This time (as in our previous stay) everything was very good. Great location. Clean, lovely, absolutely completed. Мы были у TJ в 2016 году и в этот раз остановились там же. Ничего подобного в этом ценовом сегменте и локации мы не нашли. Это не просто жилая площадь для ночёвки, а самый настоящий дом. Хозяйка отвечает быстро и всегда поможет. Нас оба раза встречал housekeeper Jun - никаких замечаний. В квартире есть детская кроватка и стул для кормления. Есть горшок и мисочки для котиков. Сам дом очень уютный и удобный. Столько приятных деталей! Масса книг и альбомов, коллекция дисков и проигрыватель, пианино - если у вас будет время и силы на это после прогулок :) За год появился новый чайник, посуда, подушки и т.д. - т.е. дом обновляют. Удобно, что две отдельные комнаты: дети могут спать в спальне, которая выходит в тихий двор (сейчас, да, со стороны двора идёт ремонт квартиры в соседнем доме рядом, но днём и в рабочие дни). В гостиной тоже есть диван, здесь же зона кухни и входная дверь. Сама улица достаточно шумная, но не критично. Часов в 12 по местному времени становится тихо и до утра. Если мешают фонари, есть ставни. Терраса - отдельная тема. Она прекрасна! И этот цветущий куст :) Хотя мы оба раза были в начале весны и проводить время на террасе было холодно. Есть отопление + частично обогревается пол в ванной и спальне - приятно. Кухня хорошо укомплектована. Сварить пасту и разогреть к ней готовый соус можно. Ничего более сложного мы не готовили. Приборов и всяких аксессуаров достаточно. Нет только мисок: если вы вдруг захотите по утрам завтракать кашей, то придётся из чашки :) Этот дом хорош и для пар, и для небольшой семьи, и для отдыха с питомцами. Это именно дом (а не место для сна), который очень повлияет на впечатление от Рима.

I'm a writer, filmmaker and university professor (I teach Film Studies). I grew up moving around Europe, went to university in Rome and then did my graduate and postgraduate studies in London. I love watching movies (of course), reading, taking photos, and going on long walks. I'm especially fond of wandering around Rome, and, if I'm lucky, getting lost (best way to discover the city's hidden treasures!) I'm fluent in English and Italian, speak conversational French and Spanish, and if need be, can get by in German!
