Rome lovers who return year after year always look for apartments in this golden location just north of Piazza Navona, right of Via dei Coronari, steps from the cafe and charms of the Chiostro di Bramante an architectural and artistic landmark.
Enjoy a pleasant and comfortable apartment in a very Roman setting.
This location has every advantage and charm of the center of Rome. Very close to splendid Piazza Navona, mideaval streets lead you along Via dei Coronari to this vine-draped side street. Via dei Coronari is known for its antique shops and nearby Santa Maria del Pace with its stage-like baroque facade and famous cloisters.
This building dates from the 1500s. The original Cardinal owner's will & testament provided each female descendant, upon her marriage, with an apartment, including the current owner. The central courtyard of the building has an even older design, reflecting the layout of ancient Roman apartment buildings. There are internal balconies on each floor and the apartments are entered from the balconies. Fortunately, the size of the courtyard allowed for an elevator.
Enter into the large living and dining room that opens onto pretty Arco della Pace. A sofa and armchairs provides seating for all guests. Some nice pieces of art decorate the walls. A glass topped dining table seats 4. Facing the sofa is a hutch with television (Italian channels only) with a DVD player.
From the living room, enter a hallway that passes the kitchen and onto the bedroom area.
The kitchen is small but complete with oven, stovetop, microwave, larger refrigerator/freezer, toaster and Italian and drip coffee makers.
The living room is air conditioned but the bedrooms are not. This old building with its thick stone walls and front-to-back windows means that it ventilates well and will be comfortable most of the year if you do as the Italians do.
One bedroom has a queen size bed. The other bedroom has 2 single beds that can be combined to form a queen-sized bed. Both bedrooms also are endowed with, unusually, a large closet. The bathrooms are across from the bedrooms and are nicely done with fresh tiles and fixtures. Each has a step-in shower with hands-free nozzles.
A washing machine is in the back bathroom.

Great Location and Apartment
We were warmly welcomed to Rome and found this spacious apartment ideally located and perfect for our family of 2 adults and 4 children 8 - 15 years. Easy walk to all the wonderful sights of Rome. Supermarket just across the road and great bakeries, restaurants and cafes all around. We would definitely stay there again.

"Italy Perfect" in every way.
Our family of 5 stayed in the apartment Lora during the Christmas holidays. It was "Italy Perfect" in every way. We could walk everywhere and did. It was wonderful having the little grocery store just across the street. Campo de Fiori, center of activity and restaurants was five minutes away. Our "greeter", Danelia, spoke English, and was warm, friendly and so very helpful. When in Rome, we could not imagine staying anywhere else.

A Comfortable Suite in a Great Location!
Our party of two couples had a terrific stay in the Lora Apartment during our one week visit at the end of September and early October this year. The apartment is on the third floor of a painted stucco building in very good condition, in a nice neighbourhood less than two blocks from the Tiber River and the Ponte Garibaldi and just a five minute walk from the Largo de Torre Argentina where Caesar was murdered. There is an elevator in the building, which we used for moving luggage up or down from the apartment. We mostly used the stairs if we were not carrying something heavy. The apartment was everything it was advertised to be, and was perfect for our needs. The greeter Daniela, a lovely person who we found to be most helpful, had left a bottle of wine and some cookies when we arrived. The suite has a well-equipped kitchen, with modern appliances (including dishwasher). There is a clothes washing machine and a clothes drying rack. The living room was very comfortable, with a large sofa and two chairs, a wireless internet connection and a TV. The separate dining room was nicely furnished, in a simple black and white styling, with a dining table and covered chairs for six or more people. Our bedroom (with the ensuite) faced onto the street, while the other bedroom faced into the courtyard. Rome is a big city, so some low-level noise was inevitable, but this did not interfere with our sleep. (We found that when our air conditioner was on, it completely masked any outside sounds.) Outside noise was not an issue at all on the courtyard side. The apartment location is fabulous, about as good as you could hope to find in Rome. We never found it necessary to use a taxi or public transit. Our experience at the Lora was very favourable, and we would not hesitate to go there again. We would give it 4.5 stars out of five. I should mention as well that we found Italy Perfect and owner Pat Byrne to be most helpful and supportive. The information on their website is comprehensive and useful, and when we had a small glitch develop with VRBO (not related to Italy Perfect or the Lora apartment), Pat Byrne was immediately responsive and helpful.

A great place to see Rome by foot
We were met promptly after we arrived. The apartment was clean and tidy. The kitchen was well-equipped. The apartment was spacious and although centrally located, it was quiet. It was hot during the day, and the air conditioners worked well when we needed them in the mid- afternoon and evening. The location is outstanding! We walked to all of the places we wanted to see! The great location allowed us to do an activity in the morning, come back to the apartment to cool out during the hot mid-afternoon hours, and then go out again to experience Rome in the evening. The outdoor restaurants in the nearby Jewish quarter were great and convenient. A decent grocery store is located right across the street from the apartment!

Nothing but praises
Lora apartment is very roomy! It was perfect for our family of 7, up to 8 people. Although we did not do any major cooking, the kitchen was equipped with everything you need to cook. They also have a washing machine which we find extremely useful! There's also a grocery store right across the apartment. Campo de Fiori is about 5 to 8 minutes walk. From there, we were able to walk to Piazza Navona, onto Trevi Fountain and Spanish Steps. There's also a bus stop nearby. We have nothing but praises for our greeter who gave us a thorough rundown of the entire apartment and places to visit and to eat. Two thumbs up to Daniela! Lora Apartment is highly recommended.

Perfect for our Family
The Lora property was perfect for our family of six, ages 7 to 78, The location was great, just on the fringe of the Jewish Quarter. We walked everywhere, from St. Peter's Square to the Spanish Steps, to all of the ancient sites close by. The flat was even more spacious than it appeared in the photos, and furnished with everything we needed. Our driver and greeter were both very gracious and helpful.

My husband and I, along with our adult children and spouses, spent five nights in the Lora apartment. We were visting my sister who lives in Trastevere and the location was excellent - walking distance to everything! The apartment exceeded our expectations. It is spacious and nicely decorated and has a large kitchen perfect for cooking your own meals. Even with six adults staying in the apartment, there was plenty of room for everyone. Having a grocery store directly across the street was also convenient. If you are traveling with a family or large group, this is the place to stay. It would be nice to be able to have more than two sets of keys, but I understand that it is the condominium policy of not issuing more than two sets. I would definitely stay here again.

Expectations were exceeded
We had high expectations from Lora, given the photographs and the considerable rent -- and those expectations were exceeded. The apartment is spacious, very comfortably furnished, and full of light. The kitchen is modern with everything you could want, the ceilings are high, the bathrooms large. And the location -- we had no idea how terrific that would be. One block from the Tiber, easy walking everywhere in the historic city, yet just far enough from the hordes of tourists. The street is quiet at night -- a real plus. We were there during a heat wave and the air conditioners and fans worked well (although energy consumption is expensive as we found out when we checked out). Daniela, who greeted us and checked in our our stay while we were there couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. Bottom line -- when we return to Rome we will want to stay here, and we would recommend Lora highly to any friends who want to go!

We were very happy with the space at the apartment. We were 6 people and it was nice to spread out a little and cook for ourselves. We were pleasantly surprised that there was a little grocery store just outside our door. This made it convenient to stock our pantry. We also loved the open market nearby which allowed us to have fresh fruits and vegetables on a daily basis. The proximity to transit was a real plus as well, although almost everything was within walking distance - it was marvelous to be in the centre of it all. Daniela, our greeter was wonderful, showing us through the apartment and added a quick tour of the neighbourhood. I have already recommended Lora and Italy Perfect to our friends.

The Lora apartment was an excellent choice for us in a number of ways. The location is right in the center of most attractions, with most being within easy walking distance. The facility itself was a great match for us. There was plenty of room for we two grandparents and our four teenage grandchildren. The apartment was well furnished and supplied. Arrival and departure arrangements worked perfectly. The folks at Italy Perfect were wonderful to work with.
