Fantastic area next to the Pantheon
Very elegant and romantic apartment
Well furnished and cozy
Party are not allowed
The location of this penthouse is amazing, a few minutes from the Pantheon and walking distance to most of Rome's main attractions. This makes it easy to pop home, rest and go out sightseeing yet again. The space is also great with an upstairs and downstairs allowing privacy.
We were asked to call Barbara, the Polish cleaning lady, from the airport to signal our arrival. She is very sweet although she does not speak English so much is done is sign language!
In sum: The kitchen is well equipped, there is a rain shower and Livia is v. responsive, the AC unit worked but would not be adequate in summer to cool the whole flat.
On the downside: As other reviewers pointed out and I thought they were being overly cautious, UPSTAIRS IS NOT SAFE for children 1-7 years old given the loft has a 2 Meter drop with a flimsy bar above too high up. This is an accident waiting to happen. Also my 9-year old slipped on the wooden stairs in her socks - no more socks! The internet was erratic with 3-4 devices logged on. There is an army of ants both in the kitchen and some even in the upstairs bathroom. They are harmless but quick to march out even for a coffee cup left in the sink. But overall, I loved the location, decor and space.
We emptied the bins and fridge on departure, leaving some crackers and cheese in case someone was hungry on a late arrival.
Livia's penthouse in Rome was the perfect home base for our family to explore the city. The location was perfect—a block from the Pantheon, walkable to most all the major sites, close to great food and gelato. And the space was ideal for our family to spread out and do our thing when it was time to relax in the apartment after a long day of sightseeing. Communication with Livia was easy and fast and check-in and check-out was super smooth. All around a great experience and we'd definitely stay here again.
The apartment is definitely very pretty and very tastefully decorated- it is extremely well located especially for first time visitors as it is within waking distance to pretty much everything important to see for a first timer, which is probably why it is on the pricier side. Livia was very responsive previous to our trip and the check in took place without any issues. We really enjoyed our stay there, it's a lived in apartment so if you're looking for a sterile clean hotel like place, it's not it - it's a very well equipped place that is actually used by people and you can sense life in it. A plus for the heating, being extremely sensitive to cold and familiar with lacking Italian heating system, I was pleasantly surprised to see the apartment remained well heated despite the abnormally low temperatures rome experienced for a few days in dec. finally The living area is so cosy we really enjoyed hanging out in it late in the evening when we came back to the apartment.
Livia was very easy to communicate with and her apartment was amazing. Heaps of space, cool interior deco and looks better than the pictures! Also, location is perfect - we walked everywhere and didn't use public transport once. Highly recommend.
We loved every single detail of our stay at Livia's gorgeous penthouse apartment! Before we even arrived, Livia was so responsive with communications and helpful with directions from the train station to the apt. We arrived about 10-15 minutes later than scheduled and Livia was super accommodating, and showed us all the amenities of the place and answered all our questions. She really made us feel so comfortable and at ease instantly! If we come back to Rome, we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again!
The apartment itself is beyond description. The place is simply GORGEOUS. It's super spacious, filled with light, and has been impeccably furnished/designed. My husband and I were so sad to leave Rome and esp. this beautiful home! We even cooked at the apartment a couple of nights - all the dishes, cutting boards, olive oil etc. is easily available, as is a sizable supermarket a couple of blocks away. The place is on the top floor (10 flights of stairs) of a beautiful historic bldg with a small elevator that can accommodate 2 people (or 1 person with luggage) and has such lovely views of Roman rooftops from all the large windows.
The location: PERFECT for a short stay in Rome - you can walk to everything from here! Just a couple blocks behind the Pantheon, on a charming side street. 10 min walk to Piazza Navona, the Colosseum, 15 minute walk to Monti and the Trevi fountain.
Grazie mille Livia!
My stay in Livia's apartment was perfect. We got delayed at the airport and arrived at the apartment way later than expected. Still she was flexible enough to accommodate us. Her assistant greeted us and give us a tour in the apartment.
The place was as described and provided the circumstances for us to have a great experience!
Livia was very helpful in coordinating our stay. We were greeted by her housekeeper who let us into the building. Although she didn't speak english, we felt an immediate rapport and she guided us carefully around the place. Our stay was fantastic. We loved Livia's place. The location is great, just around the corner from the Pantheon. The main bed was very comfortable and the two couches were nice as well. Highly recommended.
