Piazza di Spagna (Spanish Steps) apartment description
Italy Perfect Winner of Trip Advisor-FlipKey's Award of Excellence 2011, 2012, 2013. Conde Nast Traveler Expert Specialist. Travel & Leisure Magazine Italy All-Star 2013. BBB A+
Charm, amenities and views abound in this four-star apartment that is a two minute walk to the Spanish Steps.
We welcome your inquiries and questions and will respond within one day. The calendar is kept up to date.
We have to use superlatives when it comes to the lovely Angelina apartment in the heart of Rome. The roof top terrace and balcony allow you to enjoy the timeless views of the Eternal City. Everything has been considered for lifetime memories of Rome.
The Spanish Steps location is so popular because it is very central. The graceful steps and the piazza are beautiful and usually bustling with visitors. From this location many of the important sites of Rome are within a 15 minute walking radius. Fine shops and restaurants abound in this district. Transportation is also easy from this home base. This street is closed to all but essential traffic; add the top floor location and street noise is not an issue.
A clean, marble-lined lobby leads right to a modern elevator that takes you to the top floor. There are no steps to get to the elevator or to the apartment. There is, however, a spiral staircase leading to the rooftop terrace.
Across the large living and dining area of the apartment are three French doors that open onto a full balcony with views of rooftops and the church across the street and you can look down into the street, too.
If you need to keep connected, you will find a landline telephone as well as high speed internet for your computer. The living room is big enough for entertaining. It offers a sofa, a love seat and three arm chairs. The colors are quiet and rich. An oriental carpet echoes the reds in a large antique tapestry framed on the wall. Antique end tables, desk and chairs are upstaged by an impressive art deco cabinet. There are many fine pieces of art to appreciate. A corner cabinet hides a television set that has Satellite reception for English-language news. It also has a DVD player and a small selection of first-run movies (in Italian, but just put on English sub-titles).
The dining table seats four and is just outside the small but complete kitchen. In the kitchen modern cabinetry holds everything you need for cooking and serving. There is a large refrigerator/freezer, drip and Italian coffee makers, microwave, dishwasher, gas stove top and oven.
The balcony has a table and a series of terra cotta planters all along the outside of the rail. You can enjoy a view of the facade of S. Andrea delle Frate church across the street, the little piazza below with a newsstand and the parade of people traveling to and from Piazza di Spagna.
From the entryway, a narrow, spiral stair case rises sixteen steps to the private rooftop terrace. The terrace has a rush mat cover to reduce the heat of the sun and terra cotta pots with green and flowering plants depending on the season. It is open on three sides, the fourth being painted with a fresco of the Roman skyline. Why focus on the fresco, when the real thing is just beyond? You can see St Peter's dome, the Pantheon, the presidential palace, and the top of the spires on nearby Trinita di Monti church at the top of the Spanish Steps and more. A cafe table and four chairs are enough for all guests. Also, there is a stone sink and a small refrigerator. Keep your cocktail items where you need them!
The bedroom is well-sized, holding a queen sized bed, night stands, a television set and two closets. The en-suite bathroom is very nicely done offering a shower, toilet, bidet and a sink in marble. Next to the bathroom is a small room with more wonderful views. It houses the washing machine hidden inside a cabinet. It also contains a comfortable chair for a quiet place to read.
The sleeping loft is accessed by a pretty staircase that rises from the living room. There is just room for a French twin bed and cabinet on top of which is another television set. There is room to stand up and walk from one end of the bed to the other (i.e. the loft is larger than the bed itself). Hanging space is in a closet in the entry.
This apartment is available for a gracious appreciation of the Roman lifestyle, for gazing on timeless views and relaxing in elegance for memories of a lifetime.

Comfortable and cozy
Angelina was a great place! The apartment is comfortable and cozy and feels very safe and secure. The beds are great, and the shower, etc. I cant say enough good things about the time I've had here. It has been wonderful for me in so many ways. Looking forward to next year already. Thanks again for all your help and kindness. The trip was just what I needed, and it was GREAT to be in the center of things in Rome. I learned so much.

Very nice in every way
The apartment was very nice in every way. Milk, water and juice in Fridge upon arrival. Would recommend to my friends, but Not much of a view from the small balcony. [Please see accurate photos and video on property description; it is what it is! Italy Perfect] However, we usually stay over by the Via Veneto where there are more restaurants, sidewalk cafes, and a quieter neighborhood setting. I guess it is just what you're used to. I would definitely recommend Angelina to my friends, but would put it in a heavy populated commercial (Spanish steps) area. It was sooooo crowded when we were there, it was difficult to walk around.

Pefect LocationGuest comment entered by owner
We spent five nights in the apartment in early October and would highly recommend it. The apartment is perfectly situated - being eqidistant to the Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain. Moreover, its central location means that you can walk or short cab ride everywhere. The apartment is very well maintained and suprisingly quiet - a welcome retreat at the day's end. Dealing with Italy Perfect was excellent. Elvie, the greeter, too, was lovely - incredibly personable and helpful. This all made for a very memorable Roman experience.

What a gem!Guest comment entered by owner
What a gem!
We rented the Angelina apartment for 5 nights Sept 25-30, 2013. What a gem this place is! First, one can't beat the location - between the Spanish steps and the Trevi fountain. The two terraces afford the most amazing panoramic views of the city - including the sunset light shining through the dome of St Peter's. It is so rare in Rome to find a place in Centro Storico that also has good light and views. We had a ton of fun and would recommend it to anyone.

Delightful Stay!Guest comment entered by owner
The Angelina apartment is just as it is described - bright, cheery and very centrally located. The staff at Italy Perfect provide all the appropriate information ahead of the stay - this makes the vacation start immediately. Location is central to all major points of interest, however, the apt is very quiet despite the location. I would have no problems recommending Italy Perfect to my friends!

AngelinaGuest comment entered by owner
Late July 2013, I was lucky enough to stay 9 nights at the Angelina apartment. It was perfect! The location was easy access to restaurants, groceries, sights, taxi's, shopping and yes, even church. All appointments were as depicted in the description of the property. We were greeted by Elvie, who's fabulous, as everyone prior to us has agreed. All went very smoothly, can't wait to get back. I originally was looking for a place in Navona, but am so glad I ended up near the Spanish Steps, but it's not so close to the Steps, where one might feel caught in a crowd. It worked out quite well. Much better than any hotel. It's a darling place to stay and will provide any traveler with a more than welcoming feel and beautiful memories to match. I would absolutely recommend this property to friends and family. Ciao!

Compact apartment, great location
Worked perfectly for a couple with one child. Roof top views and sunshine. Ideally located between the Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain. Friendly and helpful greeting on arrival. Small, well-stocked supermarket two minute walk away. Happy to recommend it.

About the owner: This apartment is offered by Italy Perfect. We are a family business with a mission! We want you to love visiting Italy as much as we do. We are sisters Lisa and Pat Byrne who lived in Italy in our youth and now travel there frequently for business and pleasure. We offer only short term rentals that we carefully hand pick for their locations, furnishings, amenities, and that we can personally recommend and would want to stay in ourselves. We travel frequently to inspect, and usually stay in, the rentals we represent. We select vacation rentals that offer charm, good locations, cleanliness, quality furnishings and hospitable welcomes. We count the number of steps up to the property, check the size of the refrigerator, shower, listen for noise, inventory the kitchen equipment and even inspect the mattresses. This is our most important point of differentiation which sets us apart from many other vacation rental firms. Even with careful advance research and personal connections, we still choose to not represent more than 50% of the properties we visit. And, once we agree to represent a property we regularly re-inspect it to ensure our standards are being met.
