About Trina Kim

My wife and I fell in love with Rome in 1983, when at the start of a seven-week European vacation my wife fell ill and was admitted to the womens' ward at a hospital in Rome. We knew no Italian and were petrified. However, we soon made many friends in the hospital. The warmth, generosity and love of life the Italians possessed - even in such a dismal situation as a hospital ward - were totally captivating to us and convinced us that this was our home away from home. We eventually continued our European tour, but came back to Rome continually through the years. In 1996, we decided we needed a place in Rome that we could return to several times a year. It took awhile to find a place that met our requirements: a central location, nice views and at least two bedrooms.

Trina Kim purchased this apartment in 1996

Why Trina Kim chose Rome

We had a hard time finding a place that met our requirements: a central location, nice views and at least two bedrooms. We eventually took out an ad in a local English-language paper that led to a two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment of 1,650 square feet. It was just the right size and located on a quiet street with a beautiful private terrace. It had remarkable character. A few years later, the adjoining apartment became available and we decided to purchase it also. We've enjoyed shopping for and furnishing the apartments with hand-picked antiques and luxurious furnishings.

What makes this apartment unique

The neighborbood and apartment has immense character. The hand-coffered ceilings and original wooden floors add a sense of grandeur to the spacious, elegant rooms. The apartment is centrally located, which is ideal: One block from Piazza Navona, three blocks from Campo di Fiori market and four blocks from the Pantheon. There are numerous small, friendly pubs on our street, in addition to excellent restaurants, boutiques, antique shops, and grocers.

Wonderful time

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful and huge apartment in great location. Stayed with my wife and teenage daughter over the holidays. Apartment great for hanging out, cooking and dining in, or as a base of operations for exploring Rome. Charming street with multiple friendly and good restaurants on the same block (including one downstairs in same building), and good shopping.

Wonderful Roman Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We've been to Rome a lot over the past 40+ years but don't think that we've enjoyed a stay as much as the 10 days we spent at this apartment over Thanksgiving this year (2016). The other reviews are on point. For us the location was perfect. We were fairly easy walking distance to our favorite tourist sites, markets, shopping, galleries and churches. A taxi park is close by if you need one. The apartment was very roomy and comfortable. One special treat for us was lounging around the place in the morning with our coffee and rolls without having to get dressed to go down to breakfast (as at the hotels) or out for coffee. Also, grocery stores are nearby as well as pharmacies, lots of restaurants, pizzerias and gelaterias. We're definitely thinking of going back and staying longer next year.

Completely Rome

  • 5 of 5

We loved loved loved this apartment. I honestly don't know where to start. The location is excellent, the building has so much character and history and the apartment itself is just a European jewel. Everything in this apartment is "top notch", from the paintings on the walls to the furnishings, linens and all the amenities. It is obvious that this owner spared no expense and this is not just a rental unit. We felt like we had our own beautiful home in Rome. All communications prior to and upon arrival went smoothly and the Rome contact was wonderful and very willing to help with anything. I was a bit concerned about the up front deposit because I had an issue with a previous vacation rental but my deposit was refunded promptly without any issue. I absolutely recommend this apartment and cannot wait to return on my next visit.

Comfortable, spacious apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the owners' other apartment across the hall six years ago and loved it, but this was even better. We shared with another couple and couldn't believe how much room we had, giving us lots of privacy and space to spread out. Though it was unusually hot in Rome, and the living room air conditioning wasn't working properly, the bedroom a/c s, overhead fans, and room-darkening shutters kept the apartment very comfortable. We enjoyed sitting on the terrace in the cooler evenings. The kitchen was quite well-equipped, and we cooked breakfast several times. The washer and dryer worked well, although we soon decided hanging items in the hot sun worked faster than the dryer. We loved the huge assortment of books, including many travel guides, available in the hall cabinet. Although all four of us are well over 55, I did not recommend this apartment for those over 55, as there are 67 steps (we counted!) from the street to the apartment door. This was not a major problem for us (it helped keep our weights under control despite large lunches and dinners!), but future renters need to be fully aware of this. We look forward to our next visit to this apartment. The location is perfect, near great restaurants, shopping, and sightseeing.

Wonderful apartment - excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Stoll apt for 5 nights with our two teen boys and loved this apartment! Beautifully decorated, plenty of space to accommodate all of us, and the terrace was fabulous! They have everything you need at the apartment, and the most comprehensive welcome/apartment guide I have ever seen. Washer AND dryer meant we could pack in carry on luggage. Great recommendations for restaurants and activities. Communication with the owner was outstanding, and our damage deposit was refunded promptly. Yes, there are a lot of stairs, but you will get used to them - they were not a problem at all for us, don't let that detract you from the rental unless you have mobility issues.

The location was perfect - easy to walk to anywhere, super close to Piazza Navona, and also had great restaurants, pizzerias, and gelato on our street, as well as a small grocery. It was like something out of a movie.

Don't hesitate to rent this apartment. If you are considering it, just do it! We all loved it!

Rome 2016

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastico Rome vacation and the Stoll apartment accommodations were great. Location was fantastico within walking distance of several attractions, great restaurants and night life.. Accommodations were very comfortable and we thoroughly enjoyed the terrace. I would recommend the apartment to anyone traveling to Rome.
