Heart of historical Center, few steps from Piazza Navona and Campo dei Fiori, balcony overlooking Piazza Pasquino, cozy apartment 1st floor of XVIth century bldg, wooden frescoed ceilings, wifi-ADSL, independ heating, fully equipped kitchen, A/C.
The position, among the most interesting in the city (very lively during the day, but quiet enough at night: lots of restaurant but no disco bars), the fact that it is fully independent for the entrance , heating and hot water, the fact that it is a true "inhabited" apartment: I used to live there, I have organized and set the spaces, and not much has changed since then.
The apartment is simply but fully equipped: air conditioning, fast ADSL wifi, washing machine, microwave, fridge, hairdryer, TV, equipped kitchen. The heating and hot water are gas-operated, so you may have unlimited of both of them. Upon your arrival, you will also always find the basics for the breakfast. Groceries and markets are 50 meters away.
Interaction with Guests
As much as needed and requested, nothing more. I like to interact, to speak English and enjoy meeting new people, but I live somewhere else (I used to live in the apartment, but I moved three years ago)
You will have an independent entrance, so you will not be subject to any annoying interactions/remarks with and from neighbors, enjoying full privacy.
The neighborhood is however very easy going, young and lively.
Getting around is easy: there are many buses going up and down with central station and St. Peter. The fastest ones are nn. 40 and 64. Connection with the underground is 10 minutes away. Any tourist sightseeing in the city center is, however, within walking distance. Just in front of the apartment, there is a bike rental (you can rent a bike in the morning and returning in the evening).
Vi kan kun anbefale denne bolig, som er meget autentisk, hyggelig og ydermere super centralt placeret. Vi havde nogle vidunderlige dage : )
Andrea was great. We had tons of clear communication, a very clean listing in a great location, and the perfect wine sipping sun deck. The history of this place makes it even cooler and it is much bigger than the pictures make it out to be which was a nice surprise.
We had a wonderful time. I recommend staying here!
My son and I had a fantastic time in Rome, improved no end by the location of this apartment - fantastic! Literally 2 mins walk from Piazza Navona, 7 mins from the Pantheon and 20 from the Vatican. The shops and restaurants along the buzzing little street were great and the people very friendly. Quiet at night. The apartment is basic but clean and comfortable with a lovely little balcony where you can sit and watch the world go by. I would certainly stay here again.
Quintessential Roman experience. Corner of a little street overlooking cute piazza that adjoins the southern end of the grand Piazza Navona, with all its animation & beauty, but far enough to be relatively peaceful. 15m from a bus stop on the busy Corso Vittorio Emanuele, and walking distance to all great attractions in Rome. Well furnished, ideally sized for a couple, charming apartment that's nicely decorated.
No need to look any further - Andrea's Cozy Apartment in the heart of the old district is wonderful! My husband, our 9-year-old daughter and I were very comfortable. We would sit on the large window ledges and read from Andrea's numerous guide books to plan our day, play chess, listen to the church bells or just watch this charming neighbourhood slowly wake up. The kitchen came in very handy; there is a small supermarket a 1-minute walk up the street.
The bedroom was suitably dark and tucked in back from the main street. At night, there was a bit of street noise that seeped in (the occasional Vespa, bottles being recycled from nearby restaurants, a street-cleaning vehicle, etc.) but no club music. It was really quite manageable, but if you're sensitive, bring ear plugs. There's lots of hot water, great water pressure in the sinks and shower and, if you're going in a cooler month, a responsive, reliable thermostat. Andrea has left loads of clean pillows, bedding and towels, so you won't be wanting for anything.
Neighbouring proprietors were welcoming and love children. Be sure to try the tiny gelato shop (it's all homemade!) and browse in the excellent bookshop under the apartment. We became "regulars" at both in our week there! The servers/owners at Café Pasquino were warm and hospitable. We enjoyed cappuccinos every morning on the heated patio. My daughter kept wanting to go back for the pesto pasta!
You will be able to walk pretty much EVERYWHERE from this apartment (ex: Piazza Navona, Rome Museum, the Campo de' Fiori Market and the Cat Sanctuary are all less than 2-minute walks away) and there is a taxi stand conveniently located at the bottom of the street.
While we didn't get to meet Andrea personally, he was always just a phone call away and did leave his calling card in our door one afternoon when we were out. I highly recommend Andrea's beautiful apartment without hesitation. It is the perfect choice in a great neighbourhood!
L'appartamento di Andrea è perfetto!
In pieno centro abbiamo potuto fare tutto a piedi
tutto era molto pulito siamo stati molto contenti.
Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour dans l’appartement d’Andréa. L’appartement est merveilleusement situé. En plein cœur de Rome, nous avons visité tout ce que nous souhaitions, à pieds avec un enfant de 7 ans. Andréa est très disponible et réactif pour toutes demandes et questions.
Hi, I live in Rome, working as lawyer. The apartment I am renting used to be my flat, belonging to my family since XVII century, and I love it very much (and I will get back there, at some point). I am not doing that as a profession but mostly for the fun of it, meeting people. I love that people may have the best time in Rome, which is a quite difficult and confusing city, where some good advice and tricks can really make the difference: living as Romans do could not only more amusing, but also making your life here easier. I would love to answer to any question you may have, or to give any advice you may need.
