Beautiful loft on two levels; the spacious lower floor features a kitchen area, two closets (one of which houses a washing machine, iron and ironing board) and a balcony overlooking the beautiful courtyard.
The kitchen is equipped with all appliances including a dishwasher. TV with digital terrestrial and satellite cable signals, a DVD player and an amplifier attachable to audio players. A chesterfield sofa and a sofa bed. A table where four can eat comfortably, but extendable to accomodate eight. Air conditioning.
The mezzanine includes a king bed, a studio space and a bathroom with Jacuzzi tub. Entire space is covered by wireless network with high-speed internet connection. The apartment is located in a fifteenth century building called the House of the Fabi. Entrance is on Via del Portico d’Ottavia near the Jewish ghetto, the Campidoglio, Piazza Venezia, Teatro Marcello, and Campo dei Fiori.
My husband and I stayed at Federico's apartment for five days. Communication with Federico was great, and he was very accommodating about check-in and check-out times. The apartment is beautiful. It was clean and we found everything we needed. The bed was comfy, and considering the location it was quiet for most of the night. Location is also great. There are restaurants right on the street, and you are close to pretty much everything.
We stayed here for two nights. The location is perfect, far from the tourist crowd but close to major attractions, giving you a bit more authentic taste of real Rome.
There are several nice cafes and restaurants right outside the building gate and Tiber river is just around the corner, perfect for an after-dinner stroll.
The apartment is very clean and has everything we need. Bright light during the day and extremely quiet at night. We had best night's sleep here during entire trip. The cute little balcony overlooks a quiet beautiful backyard. The building itself also has lots of charm. Wish we had more time to enjoy the apartment.
The host, Federico, speaks very good English and sent us a quite helpful list of restaurant and ice cream recommendations.
Overall, we had a perfect two day stay and will definitely recommend this apartment.
Superschöne, saubere und ruhige Wohnung mitten in Rom, es ist alles zu Fuß zu erreichen. Das judische Viertel bietet eine besondere Atmosphäre und viele gute Restaurants. Vielleicht nicht für zwei Paare geignet (ein Raum = wenig Intimität), aber ideal für vier Freunde oder für eine kleine Familie. Federico war immer zu erreichen, sehr pünktlich und hilfsbereit. Die perfekte Unterkunft!
Tout fut parfait ! Federico est ponctuel (plus que nous, mais il nous a attendu), courtois et efficace, il répond à toutes vos questions et vos demandes avec une rapidité incroyable. Appartement très calme et idéalement situé, je recommande vivement !
La Casa al Portico is absolutely gorgeous apartment in the heart of Rome. It is very clean, very stylish, airy and so breathtakingly beautiful! The location is the best you can dream of - five minute walk to everything and in the very quiet and safe area too. Great place to enjoy Rome and to relax after an intense day! I definitely would like to return.
Federico's apartment was clean, well-decorated and very well located. We will definitely try to stay here again on a future visit to Rome.
Federico's explanation were very clear and he was an excellent host.
Seriously, this is THE best location to stay in, in Rome. It's perfectly located between the Vatican and the Colosseum and the Mouth of Truth (Santa Maria in Cosmedin), Trevi fountain, Terrazza delle Quadrighe is all 5-10 min talk. Also, it's close to Trastevere which is a very nice area. The house is v.nice and clean and Federico was v.helpful. The washing machine broke and whilst we were outside, Federico's wife was nice enough to come in whilst we were out to wash the clothes and dry it for us. Best value for money and can't wait to go back so we can stay here again.
The overall impression is great! Such kind of apartment and the district help feel the spirit of Rome. The apartment is very spacious, has all the conveniences and, of course, the location! It's hard to find a better place to explore Rome, because all the most famous sites are within walking proximity. And don't eat anywhere before trying the restaurants on the street of the apartment - they are all excellent. Federico is a good host, was quick to react whenever I needed help.
Thanks for the stay! I really enjoyed!
Strongly recommend booking)

Diventerà la mia residenza romana!!!
Federico was very very accommodating and hospitable. He met us and showed us around the apartment and even waited when we arrived a bit late. The apartment is equipped with everything and more than you would expect. The washing machine was very handy! It is extremely spacious and felt like home. The apartment is located in the Jewish quarter with many high quality restaurants and friendly locals. It is also proximate to many discovered historical ruins and Central Rome. A fabulous experience all around. Thanks Federico.
