Location, location, location!
The Navonaloft is located in the heart of the city of Rome, few steps from piazza Navona. It is a perfect base to go and visit the biggest historical center in the world. Quiet and bright, to me is very important to make you feel at home, and you will, the loft is very comfortable. The loft is perfect for an enjoyable vacation with your family, friends, loved ones, couples, grandparents and kids (not alone please!).

The space

Navona Loft is a centrally located, exclusive and historical guesthouse in Rome.
Rome is one of the top rated worldwide destinations, a mix of historical and modern style, art and entertaining.
Whether you're visiting for the first time or returning for more, you'll find a warm welcome from one of the most attractive town in Europe.
A bursting city where time has stopped. If you long for unhurried holidays and escaping to a relaxed and comfortable place in the very heart of Rome, then we look forward to welcoming you at Navona Loft.
Navona Loft is central, walking distance from the city treasures (remember, we have the biggest historical centre in the world), just few steps from piazza Navona.
The building (dated 1650) is set on via del Governo Vecchio, that was the connection between the Vatican and the pope residence, the Quirinal. You will appreciate Roman daily life just wandering in the neighborhood, or sitting in an outdoor café. The breakfast consists in croissant and cappuccino offered from me at the coffe place "Emporio della Pace" a very nice bar-library a few steps trom the Loft where locals go.
Navona Loft was originally a print work, till the 70's an art gallery and studio of the artist living here, now is a charming B&B. We kept the artistic atmosphere: it's not a common apartment, just a unique place. It is at the ground floor, bright, quiet and cool... Since it is located close to the Parliament it is a very safe nightbourhood, even late at night.
Staying at Navona Loft we have 2 suites both available to the one client. It means I'll rent the whole place to one client per time.
Both of them have a living and a private bathroom at the ground floor, the bedroom upstairs on a wood mezzanine.
Between the two there is a very well furnished kitchen with washing machine and tumble-dryer. One of them, the red has a big skylight and has more space, while the other, the sandy one, it's a bit more cosy and has normal windows.
Both of them have A.C., but it's not really necessary with thick walls. The confortable livings are provideded with TV, WI-FI connection and stereo system. In the first room there is also a safe for the guests.
Upon arrival we'll give you a map of the town and we will make sure you know where everything is.
If you have any questions about Rome, restaurant, nightlife or tourist activity we will be more than happy to help.

Guest access

To enter the Navonaloft there is only one step from the street door, then a corridor and at the end there is a metal and glass door that was the entrance to the art gallery that was active till the 1970ies. Then there is a small hall with two doors, the one of the Navonaloft is the one on the left. You will have the whole Navonaloft, made out of two suites with living and bathroom on the ground floor and beds (double and single) on the mezanine. In between the two suites there is the corridor with kitchen and a door, in this way there is privacy for both the areas.

Interaction with guests

I am living very close, so if you need any help I will be glad to meet your needs. The professional cleaners will come 3 times a week. If you need extra fluffy towels, just ask!

Other things to note

Although the street is pretty busy with bipeds all through the year, since the Navonaloft is in the internal part of the block, (where before there were gardens till 1890), it is very quiet and you will rest very well after the day.
It is also very bright, I am going to put some blinds in the second living.
New fluffy towels and linens of very good quality are waiting for you. The kitchen is fully equipped and there is everything you need for a pleasant vacation.

House Rules
No smoking
Not suitable for pets
No parties or events

Normal rules: no shouting by night, no smoking (there is a very small terrace, but almost all the few guests that smoke usually do it in the street, looking at the people walking). Cleanings are 3 times a week and please be careful with the fluffy towels, I bought them in the States.
Kitchen must be left in order and clean. I live just nearby, so don't hesitate to call me if you need anything, I will appear in few minutes.
Please consider that you have 3.3 kilowatts, so don't use air conditioning, hair dyer and tumble dryer at the same time. The general switches in case are behind the glass painting at the entrance, in the first living.
At the check in I will tell you everithing about all the apparels in the apartment. Remember I'm a traveler and I'm also easy going. I do rent the Navonaloft since many years and I do it in a professional way.
Please consider all the objects in the apartment have a story behind, from the military case of WWI, till the safe from vienna, now transformed into a bar...

Normali regole, come nessun schiamazzo notturno, non si fuma e si rispetta il luogo culturale. Le pulizie sono comprese tre volte a settimana, ma questo non vuol dire lasciare tutto in disordine o la cucina non pulita...
Io abito accanto, quindi per qualsiasi cosa contate su di me!
Ultime due parole: sono molto easy going e sono un viaggiatore...

Super location and an Amzaing host. Best place to stay in in Rome.

The best thing about Marco's place is proximity to Piazza Navona, a truly beautiful place. It is also two doors from some good cafes. The space itself is quirky but great! Marco does a fantastic job in giving a sense of the city (about a six block walk from the Pantheon) and set up a very easy transport to the airport. Great place and location to base a trip to Roma!

Marco provided a warm welcome and orientation on our arrival. Apartment is located in very convenient and fun location - street outside is lovely with shops and restaraunts - the apartment was quiet and nice retreat for our family of four. Marco provided voucher for a nice continental breakfast at nearby friendly cafe. Overall great visit...and yes, Rome was hot but the AC kept us comfortable.

A unique and charming apartment located in a lively, fun area. The apartment was a spacious, book filled paradise with two distinct areas that could be separated by closing the door in between to create a little privacy...perfect for families with teenagers who needed a little space at the end of the day together. Marco was a charming host who spent an enormous amount of time helping us get better acquainted with and connected to Rome. Great food and great gelato were literally steps away. We couldn't have asked for a better vacation spot!

Location was excellent. It could not have been any better. Marco was very warm and welcoming to our family and let us arrive early. We enjoyed the breakfast provided. My daughter and I enjoyed this quaint bistro each morning. I would highly recommend this place to others who want to stay near city center and be surrounded by great restaurants and shopping.

I'm 40 years old, self employed architect. I like to travel (not as a tourist, but as a traveler!) and to read mainly non fiction... I can't wait to ride my bike to follow the construction and renovation works.
I'm happy to have guests that like to know about the Ethernal City and I'll be glad to give some special information about it!
