See you there!
From the shadows of the ancient, winding streets of the historic center you suddenly come upon the breathtaking magnificence of Piazza Navona, born as a place of spectacle and still today a spectacular open air show; an architectural miracle in the heart of the Eternal City, filled with masterpieces in perfect harmony with each other.
This piazza, which displays the genius of Bernini and Borromini, is one of the finest Baroque Masterpiece in papal Rome. Its harmony and colors, combined with its elegance, give it a charm that is enhanced by the surprising contrast of architecturally sober houses alternating with a number of monumental Buildings.
Of all Rome's piazzas, this isola pedonale (pedestrian precinct) is one where the liveliness of Roman life is most tangible. It has long been a meeting place for the inhabitants of Rome. In past, in addition to the market, processions and spectacles where held here - included "naumachiae", or mock naval battles.
Today life in the piazza revolves around the open-air-cafés and the seasonal fairs. Of these the most popular is the one held in December and early January where toys and crib figures are sold. Its theme if the Feast of Epiphany as well as Christmas, so la Befana (the Epiphany witch, who his roughly the Italian equivalent of Father Christmas) features prominently. In the summer the piazza provides a continous festival of painters, caricaturists, fortune-teller and buskers, who entertain visitors until the small hours.

Location central, view pretty good, roof-top terrace was awesome. Nice place to stay in Rome, really close to the Pantheon.
El apartamento no puede tener más onda, todos los detalles, casi el mejor apartamento del mundo. La ubicacion es perfecta, a dos pasos del turismo pero en la movida local. Realmente un goce. Tanto Bernardo como Rita y Giovana, han sido unos anfitriones de primera línea. Adoramos sentirnos en casa, disfrutar de hacer turismo en un hogar! 100% recomendable, volvería 1000 veces
Daniele was the perfect host. Communication was immediate and all questions answered. transportation to and from the airport was hassle free. our driver spoke no English from the airport which was a bit intimidating for a first time European traveler.
the apartment was conveniently located within 20 minutes to everything.
our liaison Roberto was very amicable and gave us
lots of helpful advice
like restaurants and things
thank you for your hospitality Daniele.
Starting at the beginning! Communications with the guys was fantastic from start to finish. We asked if it was ok to check in early (we had a disgustingly early flight) and they went out of their way to help us out, which I really appreciate and they didn't have to do. The apartment is in a really great location - central to lots of attractions and places to eat, but quiet which was ideal for us.
Focusing on the apartment itself, aside from the kitchen and bathroom it's pretty spacious - I personally would suggest that 6 is a tight squeeze, but for the three of us it was fine. The place was really clean an tidy. The biggest issue we had was that it was cold! It's an old building , and being where it is only the top bedroom gets much sun. We asked about the heating, but couldn't get it work, so had to use the Air Conn to warm up, and that wasn't really ideal. In addition to that we felt that there was some stuff missing in the kitchen: sharp knives / wine glasses / tea towels - that sort of thing. Last negative - there was an unsightly patch on the wall in the main room, but it looked to be water damage rather than anything else.
I see a lot of good reviews for the place, and while I agree it's good, it does have one or two issues, but they are easily solvable. It perhaps seems like I am being super picky with the negatives, but I would point out they are outweighed by the positives.
Thank you for taking time in leaving such a detailed review. It is very important in order to improve our service.
I am sorry for the issue with the heating. The heating works fine but being Easter weekend the landlord was not in town to make it work. It is normally warm at this time of the year in Rome, you had such a bad luck :-(
We made a list of things that are missing in the kitchen and we will replace it ASAP.
The Patch on the wall is due to a pipe which broke last year and humidity came through. The pipe was fixed and we are waiting for the good season to repaint the whole wall.
Thank you again and looking forward to seeing you again!
We loved staying in this apartment. The terrace is beautiful with the view of the roman rooftops. All very clean even if the standard is average european. Picky non europeans stay away and get a hotel instead. And don't be afraid to climb stairs.
All contact with the host and WiFi worked perfectly.
The surroundings are pittoresque with restaurants and delicatessen stores to die for.
We were very disappointed with this apartment. It was a lot older than what is shown in the photos, with stains on the walls, paint peeling off from the ceiling. The listing was misleading as it stated that it is a 3-bedroom apartment but it is actually a two bedroom + living room. Here is a list of things we emailed Daniele while we stayed:
1. It stated on airbnb that it is 3-bedrm apartment there are only 2 bedrooms and now my newly wed brother and sister in law needs to sleep in the living room!
2. Duvets were very used and old. Heating is very poor so the apartment was really cold
3. The toilet is not installed and fixed properly on the ground.
4. The hairdryer doesn't work because it's in a US power plug.
His reply to our concerns were:
1. that my brother did not pay attention while he gave us the tour; 2. that "nobody has ever complained about the quality, it's blankets of a holiday home , it's used but not teared or something, it's cleaned and decent to my opinion" but unfortunately it's not decent in my opinion
3. denied that the toilet is not tilting. "The toilet has been recently renewed and fixed, it was not broken up to yesterday"
4. " The small hairdryer in the bathroom , was tested by me personally yesterday before checking you in and it was working, what's wrong with it? " How could you have tested it when the plug is not even right?
Overall it was a disappointment.
In all our experience we never found inattentive and superficial guests like you to be perfetcly honest! We made all our efforts to meet your requests and pleased you but you always ignored our information and indications, you can easily understand that by reading your review.
if you had carefully read the apartment description before booking , it is clearly stated the apartment layout.
The apartment although is situated in a renovated building dated 1500 (as written in the review), all the accessories are in excellent condition (as evidenced by the reviews of all other guests who previously stayed here ).
Another good example of your superficiality is relative to the Hairdryer which has always worked: it's a pity that you did not listen to my explanations during the check in, in fact you've never used it! as it has always been in the bathroom drawer, while you tried to use a hairdryer that an American tourist had left in the apartment :-)
I invite you next time you rent an apartment to listen to the person who spends 20 minutes to explain the rules of the house, as I did.
Daniele est très accueillant, charmant et serviable.
Nous avons eu quelques soucis dans la salle de bain (pomme de douche entartrée, écoulement bouché, WC bouché), et l’hôte est intervenu aussitôt.
C'est un hôte vraiment très sympathique.
Les quelques petits défauts de l'appartement :
- L'appartement n'est pas fait pour 6 personnes. Il y a bien un clic clac dans le salon, mais il est impossible de dormir dessus. Nous avons du mettre le matelas par terre pour être plus à l'aise.
- La salle de bain/ WC est vraiment très petite.
- L'appartement se situe au 5ème étage sans ascenseur.
- Un taux d'humidité qui reste important malgré le chauffage qui a été mis au maximum. L'isolation de la chambre parentale n'est pas idéal non plus (la nuit, il n'y fait vraiment pas chaud!)
Les + de l'appartement :
- Sa situation géographique (plein cœur de Rome),
- Le quartier est assez calme, est pourvu de plusieurs restaurants typiques et très bons!!!
- Daniele nous a organisé le transfert de l’aéroport à l'appartement et de l'appartement à l'aéroport pour une somme tout a fait correcte et avec un chauffeur à l'heure et très agréable.
- L’hôte est vraiment disponible, à l'écoute et très sympathique!
Dans l'ensemble, nous sommes vraiment ravi de notre séjour, et nous remercions Daniele pour son dévouement.

About the Host, Daniele
Sono nato quaranta anni fa in una cittadina pugliese anche se vivo a Roma da sempre.
In questa splendida città sono cresciuto e mi sono laureato in biologia. Per anni ho lavorato nel campo farmaceutico, sviluppando attitudini nel commerciale e nella comunicazione.
Nella vita privata ho sempre creduto che la cosa più bella sia conoscere il mondo, non solo esplorando luoghi nuovi, ma incontrando nuove persone, culture.
Ed ho capito che la città in cui vivo, che respiro ogni giorno, è l’ombelico del mondo: Roma è il crocevia di decine e decine di culture diverse, di persone che arrivano da ogni angolo del mondo nella Città Eterna per scoprirne i suoi tesori e viverla sin nel profondo.
Ed eccomi qui: con il desiderio di accogliere e conoscere tutti quei viaggiatori che giunti a Roma, vorranno scoprirne i suoi segreti.
