The flat is brand new, having being refurbished by a professional architect. It features a nice little kitchen, an elegant bathroom with decorated hand painted Italian tiles,shower, washing machine and hair-dryer and , a living room and a confortable double bedroom, unlimited wi-fi , a flat screen TV, independent heating/air conditioning. NEW : Nespresso coffe machine for a delicious Italian espresso at home !
It is perfect for 2 people, but it can also accommodate up to 3/4 people thanks to a comfortable sofa bed in the living room. It is on the second floor with no lift but the stairs are not too tiring.
The flat is very cosy and unusually bright as it benefits from double exposure with windows in every room, enjoying the view of the prestigious Santa Cecilia Academy of Music, where sometimes it is possible to hear classical music. Very nice location with a supermarket open all week including weekend and a very sweet vegetable an flower rional market. Very well connected, with buses and metro (Spagna).
It is a unique opportunity to be in the heart of Rome, in a very quiet street, and an area with a lots of bars and nice restaurant. Very nice person for check in, he will help you with good advices about Rome. Close to underground station of SPAGNA (Linea A). Given flight restrictions, I always try to leave in the flat toothpaste, shower gel/shampoo etc.

Mary welcomed us and gave us many suggestions for dining and information about the neighborhood.the apartment wan exactly as.shown in the photos. The location is in walking distance to the Colesseum, Spanish Steps, many churches, the Pantheon and shopping. We felt very safe walking even after dark.
Wonderful host, beautiful apartment. Very clean, open and full of light. Stones throw to the Spanish Steps and there are many great small bars and restaurants a minute or two away. This is a perfect central location to use as a home base to explore the city.
We enjoyed very much our stay at this apartment. Everything was according to the listing and even surpassed our expectations. We were impressed by the care the owner put into every single detail: you have everything you might need for your trip!!
When we got there, we were welcomed and explained all the details of the apartment and we even got recommendations of spots that we should try during our stay in Rome. They also provided us with a cell phone that we could use to make any local call.
The apartment is very centrally located and it was very easy for us to get to all the most important monuments of the city. It is very close to a supermarket, so it was very convenient for us to cook a couple of light meals.
The place was spotless and decorated with a very good taste and we felt at home during the 4 days we spent there.
In my case, I was traveling with 2 seniors (75 and 78 years old). The owner warned us, before we went ahead with the booking, that the apartment was on a 2nd floor with no elevator. I felt that was very nice from her to remind us (although it is already explained in the description of the apartment). My family was able to deal with that, although they found the steps of the stairs were higher than usual, so that is maybe something that you might want to take into consideration.
Other than that, we were really pleased with the apartment and it is definitely a place I would go back again when I have another chance to visit Rome. Not only the place is nice and centrally located, but the way you are treated by Sabina is exquisite and very caring. Thank you very, very much, Sabina!
The host was wonderful - great communication with clear instructions about the flat beforehand, met us at the flat the day of, and gave great recommendations about the neighbourhood. Sabina was also very easy to contact and quick to respond over Whatsapp. Would highly recommend the airport shuttle that Sabina offers - the price is the same as a taxi and gives the traveler peace of mind when arriving.
The neighbourhood is perfect for tourists: equidistance from St. Peter's Square/Vatican and the Roman Forum/Pantheon/Coliseum. Also right beside some great shopping, grocery store, and some good restaurants. We felt very safe in the neighbourhood at all times.
The flat itself is very homey. The shower pressure was excellent and the flat was very clean. All basic amenities were met including toiletries, laundry detergent, and even water/juice in the fridge.
All in all, I would highly recommend this place for anybody travelling to Rome and looking for good value.
Our experience in Sabina's apartment was seamless from start to end. Communication was prompt, our meeting with her friend Charlotte to get the keys was smooth & she was lovely. We felt right at home in the apartment, perfect size for 2 people and all the things you could ask for! Small but functional kitchen, great hot water pressure in shower, perfect air conditioning, secure building & the big plus - the location!! Right in the heart of Rome, easy access to everything & very safe area. The opera floating through the window from the music academy was a real treat!
Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this apartment & look forward to coming back one day!!
We had the most wonderful stay in Sabina's apartment in Rome. She was easy to communicate with and her friend Giacomo was very welcoming and helpful upon our check in. The apartment was comfortable, clean, gorgeous looking and had everything we could possibly need. We especially loved the location - near so many good restaurants, wine bars and shops. It was also very pleasant to be right opposite the music academy and to hear beautiful music in the afternoons. We highly recommend this as a place to stay and would be back in a heartbeat.
Sabrina was really welcoming and organised. She messaged us well in advance and organised a taxi to take us from the airport. Everything we could possibly need was provided in the flat. The position suited us well as we could walk to almost everything we wanted to see. Train was close for longer trips. The flat was lovely and clean and we thoroughly enjoyed our 9 night stay. Thanks Sabina

About the Host, Sabina
I am an architect and I have worked in Italy and in the past in the UK and I have travelled extensively. I am interested in culture, visual arts and particularly music. I have over time renovated 3 family flats, one in the historical city centre, and two close to the Vatican one of each with a beautiful terrace to accommodate the needs of the demanding traveler who is looking for comfort and at the same time to share the experience of a local and to live like a real Roman for a few days at a reasonable cost and in an elegant setting. I have tried to include in the apartments all the amenities I would like to have when I travel. I put particular effort in recreating the Italian lifestyle experience, a comfortable bed, a good quality espresso when you weak up, some quality guides for you to use, a speedy Wi-Fi, a check in service which goes beyond giving the keys and tries to understand your needs and share with you some tips and knowledge of the area. In addition I provide each flat with an Italian mobile phone that you can use call museums and restaurants and of course to communicate with me at not cost to you. You will find welcome drinks in the fridge, whenever possible a bottle of wine complementary soaps, shampoos and tooth paste in case you have forgotten them. In other words I have tried to make your holiday hassle free. also the ability to be picked up at the airport by an elegant and comfortable car at a lower or similar cost to public transport. It is made to make you start the holiday on the right foot, particular in those cases where you have problem of delays , lost or heavy luggage. I realize that each guest is different, coming from a different country , some already knows Rome and are looking therefore for special sites, others are looking more at the food side, others to the shopping opportunities, and so I am available, upon request to share information with you even before you have arrived in Rome. In some cases I helped guests plan their follow on trips, after Rome, for example to Pompei or Florence. Of course I am not a travel agent but I always try to be friendly and helpful.
