Piazza di Spagna (Spanish Steps) apartment description

A truly wonderful and amazing apartment, which well deserves its name 'Regina' or 'Queen'. It is the very best apartment you can possibly rent in Rome.

It is a high-end property, with also great charm. Located in Via San Giacomo by the Steps, a quiet street where motor circulation is forbidden, it is utmost silent, a rarity in Rome, especially near the Spanish Steps, a most pleasant area, but where throngs of visitors and traffic can be noisy.

The apartment quintessentially represents the sophisticated Italian style and taste. It is spacious, bright, and it inspires serenity and charm. “A little world within the world”, as a diplomat wrote in the guest book of the hospitable owner, a finest Italian 'Signora' (madam).
Despite you will be in the very heart of Rome, you also hear birds chirping, the squawks of the Tiber seagulls nesting on the roofs of palaces. You can also pick your lemons in the trees of the terrace-roof garden.

The property is situated at the third floor (it is 4th in the USA) with *elevator*. The palazzo is most elegant, in pristine conditions, with excellent fittings, and it includes a large courtyard with plants (another rarity in Rome’s centre), situated in the back of the Church of St. Athanasius (the Greek Orthodox Church of Rome).

The apartment comprises:
- a spacious foyer (having the size of an ample room in its own right);
- 3 bedrooms (two double - matrimonial and double bed respectively - and one single);
- three bathrooms (one with Jacuzzi, one with bathtub and hand-held shower, one with shower enclosure);
- a spacious and perfectly equipped kitchen, with dishwasher, complete silverware cutlery, chinaware dishes, Italian Espresso coffee maker, and all utensils;
- a large (double size) most elegant sitting room;
- an elegant and spacious dining room;
- a little study, also used as pantry;
- a spacious, large terrace with plants and flowers, including an ample table and chairs sitting 8 persons, another lower table with armchairs. The plants are watered by an automatic watering system. From the terrace you can see the famous churches nearby (San Giacomo and All Saints Church of England).
- the terrace is endowed with large elegant awnings, which are automated, with electrical engine, remotely controlled from the interior. It can cover entirely the terrace in sunny, hot days.
- all bedrooms have balconies encircling the property, with plants and views of the nearby churches.

The apartment is furnished and prepared with utmost taste in every detail, with excellent fittings. You find wooden floors (parquet) with refined design, marble floors, and many Persian carpets. The property is also endowed with finest chandeliers, fine lamps, and paintings of famous old masters.

The equipment is remarkable: a complimentary cellular phone given to guests, 2 colour TV sets one of which has satellite dish to watch English and American channels (Fox News, CNN, BBC etc.), washing machine / clothes dryer, dish washer, security camera, heating, air conditioning, free 24/7 internet WI-FI connection.

The property comes not only with initial and final cleaning and supply of linen and towels, but also with *mid-week* complete cleaning and change of linen and towels.
Upon arrival a complimentary basket with starters and goodies (breakfast cereals, bottles of wine etc.) is provided.

                            The apartment was excellent, yet we especially appreciated your wonderful help which made our visit to Rome great. The detailed information you provided was unobtainable, especially on transport to Florence, on sightseeing and on how contacting tourist guides. We saved consistently because of your tips. The property was very fine, as advertised, and your great hospitality was a pleasant surprise.

                            Recommended for: Age 55+, people with disabilities, tourists without a car, families with teenagers, romantic getaway, sightseeing.

                            Owner response: We were the ones pleasantly surprised by your interest in everything regarding Rome and Italy. We were also delighted to meet you and your lovely family.

                            This was my third trip to Rome, and it was by far the best. I gave my partner a surprise trip to Rome; she did not know where we were going until we boarded the plane. What a surprise for her to learn that we were going to Rome. I made all of the arrangements without her knowledge. I contacted several web sites for rental apartments, and ultimately choose this apartment. The web photos capture the apartment well. It is absolutely gorgeous! The apartment is very well furnished, and the accommodations are very comfortable. The owner of the apartment lives next door (and sometimes you can hear her through the thin walls); however, she is very gracious. If you are coming from the U.S., you'll need to get adjusted to the Italian appliances, but our rental host (Mauro) gave us a very thorough overview of the apartment and he also was available when we had additional questions during our stay (such as how to access CNN since we wanted to watch the coverage of Nelson Mandela's funeral). The apartment is on a very quiet street and has a beautiful plaza-type entrance. The location is outstanding; we walked everywhere! The apartment is literally just a 3-5 minute walk to the Spanish steps and great shopping as well as all of the spectacular Roman piazzas. There is a grocery store just around the corner, and we went there to get provisions to stock in the frig. The metro is just a short walk away, and we took it to the Vatican as well as to the Colosseum. Staying at this apartment allows you to fully immerse yourself in Roman life without giving up any comforts. It is a very spacious apartment; although we did not use the outside balcony area because it was December, I can only imagine how lovely this area would be in the summer for morning tea/coffee or evening cocktails. The only caution I would give is that the mattress on the largest bed (queen) is very firm; if you do not like firm mattresses (which I do), then the bed may not be to your liking. I was quite comfortable as was my partner. My (77 year old) mom was with us as well, and she stayed in one of the other bedrooms; she said that she slept quite comfortably. Overall, I would give this apartment very high marks in every regard. Accommodations, location, spacious, luxury are all excellent.

                            Recommended for: Age 55+, people with disabilities, families with young children, tourists without a car, families with teenagers, girls getaway, romantic getaway, sightseeing.

                            Owner response: We were delighted to be able to assist you. We look forward your next visit, to continue exploring and enjoying Rome's 1000s facets - naturally also experiencing it as Romans do!

                            The property was as advertised - actually better! In our previous Italian trips we stayed in beautiful homes, with excellent features, which though came along with some glitches. This apartment was just flawless, perfect in all respects. Ample size, exposure, brightness, furniture, fittings, decor, matching colors, equipment, cutlery, dishes, chinaware, silverware, wooden floors, terrace... everything is impeccable, elegant. We had a wonderful time and spent a long time in the patio. Its table could seat all of us, and we hobnobbed in the sitting area close to it. When it was too sunny we unrolled the awnings in the patio (easy: it's electrically controlled) and so we stayed out longer. In the end, this place is blissful. Owner Marissa and the property manager couldn't be more helpful and informative.

                            Recommended for: Age 55+, people with disabilities, tourists without a car, families with teenagers, romantic getaway, sightseeing.

                            Owner response: It was indeed a pleasure knowing and assisting your family, and we are glad that you were pleased with the property and with our service. As they say "Rome, one life is not enough", and we look forward your next stay. Arrivederci!

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1980

                          About the owner: I owned a finest and famous chinaware shop in Rome, still by the Spanish Steps, before retiring. Because I love homes, decoration and hospitality, I still organize conventions and congresses, especially of diplomats. I like to share my beautiful property, and the emotions it gives, to those who love Rome, its amiable atmosphere, and also the refinement in preparing wonderful homes.
