About this listing
Bang slap in the middle of the historical centre of Rome, our home is a lovely, sunny, newly furnished 2-bedroom apartment. Located on the 4th floor of a 17th century building, it still has the airy, spacious feel of the old houses in the area, as well as the original wooden vaulted ceiling.
The master bedroom has an ensuite bathroom, and the second bedroom has a pull-out day bed, which comfortable sleeps two people. The second bathroom has a corner bath and a fantastic shower that was converted from an old spiral staircase.
The apartment has two mobile air conditioning units, one in the master bedroom and one in the living room.
Our kitchen is modern fully equipped with the likes of a stove, oven, dishwasher, blender, juicer and Nespresso machine, and our guests are always free to use any food from the pantry. We have a good wi-fi connection as well as a washing machine and a tumble drier, and the building has an elevator, in case the thought of all those flights of stairs gives you the heebies.
We don't have a TV, but we do have a projector and a pull-down movie screen. And we leave a mobile phone with a local pay-as-you-go SIM card for our guests to use, on request.
All the windows in the apartment are full-length French windows that let in lots of light, but for the ultimate view, you can head upstairs to the shared roof terrace for a city vista that takes in the Pantheon dome and St Peter's, among other landmarks.
The apartment is just a few minutes walk from Piazza Navona, Campo di Fiori, the Pantheon and the bridge at Castello San Angelo. Also within walking distance are the Vatican, the Spanish Steps and the Trevi Fountain. It's an amazingly buzzing location, surrounded by cool restaurants, pizzerias and bars, though light sleepers should be warned that late-night revelries can sometimes be heard from the Irish pub below.
Unfortunately, the nearest metro, Barberini, is a bit of a walk, about 25 minutes. But there are bus stops nearby and a taxi rank just around the corner. There is also a very convenient supermarket a couple of blocks away.
This apartment is our home, and so do expect to find traces of our existence here and there! We leave the place clean and tidy, but our clothes will be in the closet and our cosmetics in the bathroom. We invite you to use our basic kitchen supplies, but we'd prefer to keep the other stuff for ourselves ;-)
There is a hanging space and drawers in the spare room for you to store your clothes.
Please don't smoke in the apartment, and please please please respect the neighbours' peace and quiet. Be aware that there are people living both below and above us, and that they get up early in the morning!
Nobody apart from you and your party is to be admitted into the apartment.
From Dec 01, 2015 - Feb 28, 2016 the minimum stay is 5 nights.
