The heart of Rome is famous for its narrow lanes leading from the market of Campo de’ Fiori and Piazza Navona to Trastevere and the Jewish Ghetto along which ancient craft shops alternate with noble palazzos and whose every corner hides a scene so picturesque as to quicken the heart of anyone who stumbles upon it. Indeed, the Arco degli Acetari in Via del Pellegrino, the majestic Piazza Navona and the sunset observed from Ponte Sant’Angelo with the dome of Saint Peter’s church in the background are sights which no visitor to Rome will ever forget.
Located right in the centre of the city, just a few yards from Piazza di Campo dei Fiori and a few minutes’ stroll from all the most important places of interest in Rome, the apartment lies within easy walking distance of such places of historic interest as Piazza Navona, Castel Sant’Angelo, Saint Peter’s Church and the Pantheon.
The apartment is situated on the second floor of an 17th century palazzo of great architectural prestige, fronted by a magnificent façade whose faded frescoes are rare examples of the finest 17th century Italian artwork.
The apartment is composed of a spacious open plan kitchen fitted with all mod cons including dishwasher, fridge, freezer, traditional oven and microwave, two double bedrooms, one of which has an en suite bathroom with shower, a bathroom with shower and a sitting room with double sofa bed (160 cm x 190 cm). The apartment can sleep up to 6 guests.
The apartment is also furnished with a washing machine, air conditioning and two TVs, one in the sitting room and the other in the master bedroom.
The apartment has been recently restored. During the restoration work, many features of the ancient building were rediscovered and enhanced. Indeed, the lacunar ceiling of the bedroom decorated with tiny floral frescoes and, above all, the wall of Roman brickwork which divides the kitchen from the sitting room are just two examples of the original features of the apartment which have been recently brought back to light. The wall between the kitchen and the sitting room is also decorated with an original stone frieze dating back to Roman times, presumably the remains of the decoration of a temple.
In order to ensure the peace and quiet of the guests, all the windows of the apartment have been fitted with double glazing.
The details of the original structure of this highly prestigious apartment contrast perfectly with the modern interior decoration which, thanks to the use of subtle shades of white, gives the entire environment an extremely bright and airy ambiance.
Beautifully appointed apartment in a great location. Guilia was very helpful on check in. We particularly loved the proximity to the old Jewish Ghetto and the Trastevere, in fact it is within walking distance to all major attractions. However the internet wasn't very reliable and was a bit frustrating with best access from loft bed only and even then wasn't always strong enough for business purposes.
thank you very much for taking your time to write us a feedback. We are happy to hear that you have enjoyed your experience in Rome, and we hope that, despite the fact of the low internet access (we will send our handyman to check it out), the overall impression is positive,
please let us know if you come back to Rome, we will be happy to host you!
The apartment is not very large but is in great condition and location is perfect. It was a bit pricy but if you can afford it its worth it.
It was a little hard to locate the building on the street the first time, our taxi driver called the host and they have met us on the square which was only 10 meters away - suggest asking for a sketch in advance to ease your arrival.
The apartment was nicely equipped and had everything we needed (dishwasher+tablets, shampoo, cooking oil, salt, tea, coffee...we were provided with the baby cot too). There was a supermarket and a fresh produce market within 5 minutes walk. We also traveled all around Rome by foot from this apartment (Colosseum, Vatican, Pantheon, Trastevere) so I'd say it is perfectly located. It did get a little loud at night - earplugs fixed the situation.
It would be nice to have a cloths drying rack or a dryer and a map would have been handy to have on arrival. Apart from that - all very happy.
Apartment is very nice and well equiped, maintained. Its closeness to main sqaure, restaurants / market in old town is very helpful to move around. Due to renovation activity, entrance to building was little odd.
4 friends and I stayed in this apartment for 3 nights at the beginning of May and really valued the experience. The building the apartment is in is undergoing some heavy renovations and leads you to believe the apartment isn’t going to be what’s advertised but that couldn’t be further from the truth! We were all very relieved when our friendly host lead us out of the corridor and into what turned out to be a really modern, pleasantly decorated, well equipped apartment! The room had all the necessities we could have asked for not to mention a couple of hairdryers I wasn’t expecting but much appreciated on the rainy days!
The rooms are of decent size and the main bedroom has an amazing view. Bells toll quite often but if you’re in the true spirit of Rome, you really wont mind. We actually all quite liked them and weren’t disturbed at all.
The street and surrounding area aren’t too aesthetically pleasing but 5 minutes in any direction will lead you somewhere either exciting, beautiful or interesting in some way.
Overall, we loved our stay and would highly recommend this apartment!
I enjoyed our stay in Campo Di Fiori -- you cannot ask for a better location in Rome. I am 29 and was traveling with my wife and my parents. The apartment was wonderful and included everything we needed -- great WIFI, washing machine, wonderful kitchen. It was a fun space and great for the four of us -- I imagine it would be comfortable for 6, as well. I found the quality of the apartment to be very high and the beds were very comfortable. The bathrooms were also terrific.
The location is great, a little tricky to find the first time but located in a wonderful part of the city. The walk into the apartment is a little dim and unusual -- it does not give the best first impression, but once you arrive inside the apartment, everything was good. If staying here, be prepared to walk (or spend on taxis)! There are no metro stations close (20 minutes to the closest stop) and it was was very difficult to figure out the bus schedule in the short time we were there. As a reference, the Coliseum was 20 minutes walking, St. Peters about 30-35 minutes. However, Rome is a wonderful city to explore on foot, so I enjoyed being able to walk and see the city, instead of going to the Metro everyday.
I was disappointed in the check-in process -- after being asked to make two international phone calls (we were supposed to call them), our host was initially missing while we struggled to locate the apartment. It was somewhat difficult as it is located off the main street. In addition, we were not assigned a host that spoke English. I am sure these things can be improved.
The property is great and a great option, instead of settling for the budget hotels. I think it will create a different and wonderful Rome experience.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
