NEW: we now offer private dining experience at home with local revisited Roman cuisine!
We lived in this apartment for years, and we love it with all our heart. We hope you'll feel at home and you'll enjoy it as much as we did.
Beautiful and elegant apartment, fully renovated, in the very center of Rome, in the heart of the Jewish Ghetto, few meters from Campo de Fiori and Piazza Navona.
The 15 th century ancient building is located in the beautiful piazza Mattei, which has been used several times as a location for movies and commercials. Most recently has been chosen by Woody Allen for his latest movie "To Rome with love" (summer 2011). The square, very central still quite, is also known as piazza delle Tartarughe ("Turtles" square), after the beautiful fountain by the famous architecture and sculptor GianLorenzo Bernini.

Great location--very central and walkable. Luca (Chiara's husband) met us at the flat when we arrived and showed us all the essentials. He was great and very welcoming. It's a perfect amount of space for two people. We had breakfast from a local bakery every morning at the kitchen table. The flat is clean and pleasant. Two things to note: The kitchen is very small, so if for some reason you plan to cook a lot, that's something to keep in mind. Also, you can hear noise from the small street and from neighbors, but that's probably the price you pay for staying in such a central location.
Very good location and so quiet thanks to the pedestrian area. Luca was helpful to us. Thank you.
The apartment is perfectly located for foodies--right in the middle of the historic Jewish Ghetto and literally a two minute walk to some of the best restaurants in town--and the ruins of the Portico D'Ottavia.
The apartment itself is nicely proportioned. The ringing of the church bells in the morning and evening is especially charming. You barely need an alarm clock if you want to wake up at 7 a.m. The only drawback is the size of the bathroom and its slightly awkward layout. But that inconvenience won't stop you from enjoying the area and Rome.
We are just back from a wonderful trip to Italy. This was our first time using airbnb and would most definitely recommend the service.
We stayed at Chiara's place for two nights and highly recommend. The location in the Jewish ghetto was central enough for us to walk to all the major tourist attractions and quiet enough in the evening for sleeping.
The apartment is very spacious and the washer/dryer worked really well. In addition our hosts were kind of enough to leave a nice surprise bottle of champagne to aid us in celebrating my wife's birthday.
We had great stay in Rome! The apartment is very well located, still it is in an area inhabited by locals and in a quiet neighborhood. The Piazza delle Tartarughe, just steps away, is very cute spot.
Even though we didn't meet Luca and Chiara they were very responsive to our questions and helpful with their recommendations.
Hope to be back some time soon!
The location for this apartment was excellent. Very close to everything (public trans, restaurants, etc) but was indeed very quiet and safe. The little square with the fountain - just steps from the main door - was a gem. The key'ed elevator was useful, though a bit small (typical for European buildings that have new elevators added in).
The restaurant recommendations were excellent. Communication with Luca (Chiara's husband) was easy and very clear and he was very responsive. Someone met us with the key and we were good to go with no issues.
The 1-bedroom apartment itself is very large by any standard. Plenty of room for luggage and to spread out. Bed was on the hard side, but comfortable. Couch and living room area was nice and big. Wifi was super-strong and there are plenty of outlets. Bathroom was spacious and everything was working fine.
It was a bit hot outside... and getting the temperature comfortable enough required sleeping with both the fan on (in the bedroom) and the A/C unit on in the living room.
Overall a very good experience, would definitely return. Thanks!
We stayed for 7 nights and couldn't have been happier. Location was amazing and we walked everywhere. We utilized the kitchen, washing machine, and the wireless internet. Everything worked flawlessly. Chiara was very quick with responses to our questions. I would definitely recommend her flat we had an amazing stay.
