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.
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.
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.
The Spanish Steps area is arguably the most central spot in Rome, within walking distance to virtually all the major attractions. It is also a sought-after residential area: clean, safe and surrounded by a wealth of amenities, including several supermarkets and pharmacies and the largest post-office in central Rome. Good restaurants abound here, and the streets located between Piazza di Spagna and Via del Corso are also home to Rome's best designer stores, as well as a vast array of boutiques and high-street brands. In short, there is hardly a better place to stay, especially if you are visiting Rome for the first time!
The flat is very conveniently located, just a 4 minute walk to the metro (Line A), and even closer to numerous public buses. There is also a large taxi station just around the corner from the property. Transit to and from the airport and train station is very easy: details included in the house manual.
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.
Hemos estado excelente en el apartamento de TJ.
El ama de llaves nos espero en el departamento para explicarnos el funcionamiento y equipamiento de la casa, así como consejos útiles
Es cómodo, limpio y bien mantenido
Excelente ubicación cerca de todo en una excelente zona.
De volver a Roma, sin dudarlo volvería a donde TJ.
Es la segunda vez que elegimos la casa de TJ para hospedarnos, la ubicacion es la mejor, y la casa es comoda, limpia, y muy linda, tiene todo lo que necesitas y mas. Las fotos y la descripcion es perfecta.
Obwohl wir Tj nicht persönlich getroffen haben, verlief der Kontakt problemlos. Die Wohnung ist super zentral gelegen, guter Ausgangspunkt für Entdeckungen in Rom. Die vielen Bücher und Fotobände sind wunderbar für eine kurze Verschnaufpause. Wir haben den Aufenthalt in Rom sehr genossen - Danke Tj!
Although we did not meet Tj personally, we had very good email communications. Jun the housekeeper met us during check-in and was very friendly and helpful. Also very much appreciated the cleaning service during our 10 day stay! The apt itself was perfectly located and we had a very comfortable stay, also really enjoyed the little terrace. Life Pizzeria just next door had really delicious pastas and pizzas and was wonderfully convenient during a couple of rainy evenings. Highly recommend Tj's place!
Our favorite thing about TJ's place was the location! Just perfect, close to everything!
Our first experience with Airbnb was great! A friend of Tj was waiting for us at 9.30pm.
He explained the flat, he was very friendly. The apartment was great. There were enough sheets and towels. The little terrace is nice. The location is fantastic. Everything went ok.
We had a great time staying in the apartment.
It was super clean, spacious and cozy. The location was superb, we were within walking distance to a lot of places we wanted to visit. There were tons of shops and restaurants nearby.
The apartment itself is lovely! It was very convenient for our stay, and we loved the decor and the feel.
We would definitely recommend this place to anyone travelling to Rome and we hope we get a chance to visit again.
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!
