I will be happy to accomodate you and make your stay comfortable and above all like a Roman!
Trust me,the apartments in this building are all in the center, the real center, Giulius cesa was murdered 200mt from this place, so dont worry, you can walk everywere from here, no taxi, no bus no traffic, like uncle Giulius was doing 2000 years ago.
Piazza di Spagna, Fontana di Trevi, Piazza Navona, Piazza del Popolo, Villa Borghese, the Vatican City and all the main attractions of the Eternal City are from 3 min walking to 30 min walking
As you can see from the map, we a between pizza Navona and campo dei fiori
If you want, you can take my advices to help you discover the beautiful Rome: tourist guides, maps and you can have a copy of the daily routes to visit the eternal city.
This lovely and charming apartment is set on the third floor of an ancient palazzo located in the heart of historical part of campo dei fiori ( Rome ) on the ruins of the thatre of Domiziano, surrounded by cobblestone streets, typical restaurants, bars and open markets. The ancient style of the palazzo contributes to give the place a magical and medieval atmosphere. Apartment Navona is the perfect match between modern styles and cozy atmosphere: it has been recently renovated and it has all the comforts necessary for a perfect staying. The living room and combined dining area has a plasma tv of 22inch, while the nice and familiar kitchenette is fully equipped in order to prepare full meals or just snacks. There is a bathroom with a shower. The street is one of the most popular in Rome, no walking around! you are in the middle of the action! ( note that you are in the center of Rome, not trastevere, not spanish steps...just the real center ) with all the amazing amenities that this city can offer.you will experience no traffic noise.
I suggest you to check or to request one of the maps of Rome of (website hidden)
I will be sure you will find one in your apartment as soon as I get some of them, over there you can find all the info about Rome plus discounts and inside tips of the labirint city!
Also Remind me to send you the email about the nice spots of Rome
Other Things to Note
I can arrange private car with Driver, the best options if you dont want to lose time with train! i dont suggest taxi, they always get lost in the labirint of the center ;) and unfortunately they scam most of the turist in the city ;)
Price for a Private transfer cost 50E-taxi cost 48E.
Charming apartment in the heart of Rome. We stayed for 3 nights, and those nights were the best time in Rome. The apartment is located just 30 steps to Piazza Navona, and walking step from the most famous sites.
It is very clean, quiet and pleasant and THE SAME AS THE PICTURES!!
If you want to feel the vibe of Rome, just open the window and hear the sound of the city, feel the energy of the real Rome just "under the nose". we loved it!
Please note there is no wifi, and the bed is a little creaking, but it does not bother so much.
Thank you Tommy a Fabio (the guy who gave us the key)
He also recommended us some great places to eat and visit.
Do not think twice, this apartment is highly recommended.
Incredible flat. The location is perfect for first-time visitors to Rome. Both Tommy and Fabio were always there for helping us. Strongly recommended.
Die Beurteilung des Appartments fällt grundsätzlich positiv aus.
Die Lage ist tatsächlich unschlagbar. Wir konnten alles zu Fuß unternehmen und hatten Restaurants und Bars genau vor der Tür. Die entsprechende Lautstärke war natürlich auch da, ließ sich aber bei geschlossenen Fenstern ertragen.
Die Organisation und Kommunikation mit Tommy lief ebenfalls problemlos ab. Er hat den Flughafentransfer prima organisiert und auf Rückfragen immer direkt geantwortet. Persönlich getroffen haben wir ihn allerdings nicht, die Schlüssel von einer Bekannten erhalten.
Die Ausstattung der Wohnung war wie beschrieben, die Bilder sind auch repräsentativ. Abzüge muss man allerdings im Detail machen. Das Bett war extrem durchgelegen und hat schon bei der kleinsten Bewegung gequietscht. Auch das Bad hat seine besten Tage hinter sich, war aber insgesamt auf jeden Fall noch ok.
Gesamtfazit: Das Appartment kann man sicherlich weiterempfehlen. Trotzdem würde ein bisschen mehr Sorgfalt und die ein oder andere Renovierungsmaßnahme sicherlich gut tun. Insgesamt vier Sterne.
The apartment is in a perfect location metres away from Piazza Navona. The flat sleeps two very comfortably, feels spacious and looks like the photographs. For tourists it provides a great central location in the city from which to easily access all the tourist spots.
Our main issues with the apartment have all been raised before by previous bookings so it is a shame that Tommy has not taken action on these points:
The apartment lacks basic home essentials such as dish cloths, washing up liquid, kitchen bin, toilet paper - having travelled from another country it is not convenient to then have to go out and buy these things. We are frequent Air BNB users and it is commonplace to have these things included in your stay.
There is no wireless internet - which we were aware of, but it becomes more inconvenient than you realise when it means you are paying extra on your phone to investigate restaurant bookings, book tours and look at maps etc. I'm not the first person to mention this so it's a shame that nothing has been done about it.
The bed is not comfortable at all. In fact it is more like a camper/temporary bed which is very squeaky and doesn't feel very stable. Again, this has been previously mentioned by other users.
The electricity went during our stay whilst we were using the washing machine. You need to switch off the water heater in the bathroom so that the electricity doesn't trip.
The apartment was very clean on our arrival and the noise issues didn't really concern us - you can't hear a thing if you close the windows, and the air conditioning keeps the apartment lovely and fresh.
We would definitely stay in the apartment again if we were to travel once more to Rome - the location makes up for the slight inconveniences mentioned above.
The perfect location!! Provided you don't mind noise (we loved it) from the restaurants below - this is the perfect. You are 2 minutes walk from Piazza Novona - and the little cobbled streets that surround it. Lots of lovely bars and restaurants, shops etc. There's a scooter hire place just 5 mins walk away where you can get a 125cc for about 60E a day - I highly recommend you do this - we even went to the beach on one!
The hosts were excellent. They arranged a private taxi from Ciampino airport (€50) - which was just as well as getting to their street involved a maze of one way streets. We walked to a taxi rank at the top of the Piazza on our way home - those taxis cost €30.
Fabio/Tommy dealt with whatever issues we had - and provided us with a great email with lots of local places. After driving round for three days on a scooter I'm convinced this was the perfect place to be based from.
Great location, great host! Clean place right in piazza navona. Less than 10 min walking distance from the pantheon and the trevi fountain. We didn't get to meet tommy but he was super available and friendly by text- our electricity went out at midnight when we were packing, so we texted Tommy's friend and tommy and they responded right away and helped us. Fabio, Tommy's friend who checked us in, was also super friendly and helpful. Because the apt is in an old building there's no elevator, but the building has that antique roman feel to it, which was nice. Got a bit noisy at night, but that's because the apt is in the center of a great location where people are having a good time. :) Noise wasn't a big issue at all esp. With windows closed. Overall, we had a great time in Rome staying at Tommy's! Thank you!
Location is awesome, right next to the Piazza Navona and walking distance to all the main attractions. The area is popular at night (so it can be loud) but the double-glazed windows block out the sound and the amenities nearby cover all your everyday needs.
Great place to stay in a truly amazing city if you want to "live like a Roman", I highly recommend staying here. 5 stars

I've been called by the guys of Airbnb because my profile description was too short so here I'm , writing something about myself wich I hate more.. I'm traveller like you guys,! when I have some Euros left in my bank account I just grab the first ticket and I go! I think there is nothing more that share experience between humans when they are travelling... we all need to travel, we are modern nomads looking for emotions and for that we....
"Need to go faraway" ( that was my original, short description!
Hope to meet you in Rome
