About the property

Luxury warm and characteristic three bedrooms apartment close to Piazza Navona and Campo dei Fiori.

The apartment is very quiet and located at the third floor with elevator of an elegant building of four. The interiors are spacious, furnished with care and very bright from the morning till the late afternoon. When you enter the apartment you are in a comfortable entrance leading up to the spacious living room. The living together with the dining room are the hearth of the apartment, from the living you can access the first bedroom, the bathroom and the dining room. From the dining room you will able to access the other two separate bedrooms. The living room comes with a large and comfortable corner sofa, that becomes a standard double bed, an armchair and a 50'' wide led television. All the 3 bedrooms are equipped with queen size beds, the first one comes also with a nice fireplace, the second is roomy enough to eventually guest an extra bed on request. The dining room comes with American kitchen and a table that once opened accommodate up to 8 guests. The kitchen comes with gas stoves, oven, microwave, refrigerator, freezer and cattle. The bathroom comes with a wide Jacuzzi bathtub with telephone shower, sink wc and bidet. In a separate room there is also the washing machine.

The apartment is very easy to live, the 3 bedrooms are completely independent, and the bathroom is not en-suite. Air conditioned in every room, independent heating, and WiFi broadband internet connection. We will be happy to supply a baby cot on request.

The position of this apartment is awesome, being in the hearth of the historical center. Within fifteen minutes walking you will be able to reach some of the best roman attractions: Campo dei Fiori, Piazza Navona, Pantheon, St. Peter and the Vatican museums just to mention the closest ones...

It may also help to know that at less than 100 meters from the apartment you can find a supermarket (Despar - Vicolo della Moretta, 12), Bank (Cr. Firenze – Piazza della Chiesa nuova, 25), Pharmacy (Celestini – Via dei Banchi vecchi, 24), Wine shop (Vino Olio - Via dei Banchi vecchi, 14), Caffè Bar (Caffè – Via dei Banchi Vecchi, 6).

The area is also one of the most rich of restaurants and pubs, and the list of the ones close to the apartment is really huge, some of them are really just a few steps from the apartment, in Via dei Banchi Vecchi itself or in the narrow streets around.

About Owner/Manager

I am a person who loves traveling, meeting new people, and learning new cultures. I was born in Italy, in Rome, to be exact. I feel very fortunate to be born in this beautiful city where the weather is always mild.

Owner/Manager purchased this apartment in 2000

Why Owner/Manager chose Rome

Of many apartments in Rome, this is located in a perfect location. I suggest to all the people who intend to book not to rent a car. Rome is such a beautiful city that should be enjoyed on foot and this apartment is just the perfect solution.

The area is actually an extremely lively location to stay. It is possible to have speedy access to the unique city activities, attractions and tours. In addition to this, the location is also considered the center of the present day Roman life. The unique narrow streets, and the characteristic architectures, are making this area one of the most attractive of Rome.

What makes this apartment unique

I am always very attentive to details. For me punctuality is a key factor in my work. I do my best to make each customer feel like home.

In addition, before each check-in I prepare a detailed list, built according to the needs of each client, of all the restaurants and shops of products typical of Roman cuisine.

When in Rome...

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect place to experience Rome. As we planned our trip to Rome we wanted to not just visit Rome but we wanted to live in Rome. Luigi's place was absolutely perfect! Everything was within walking distance. We visited not only the major tourist places but we also walked the surrounding old neighborhoods. We shopped in the corner grocery store across the street and ate in neighborhood cafes off the beaten path. Sure it is an old building but the apartment is modern in every way needed. It has quirks but nothing problematic and I use quirks only because it was different from our normal. (For example we had to google how to make coffee in the pot. Lol!!) However if we wanted our normal we would have stayed in a hotel. We wanted Rome and we got it. we loved this place. All slept well every night (you do need earplugs if you are a light sleeper, it's a late night culture) and I would not hesitate to recommend this place to anyone. LUigi helped us in every way. He arranged travel and recommended amazing places to eat. He was just a phone call away and very helpful when we unexpectedly needed to change some travel plans. Grazie Luigi!! You truly helped make this a trip of a lifetime!!

Very nice apartment, centrally located. Great host!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was great. The location makes it an easy walk to all of the big ticket items in Rome. It has a nice kitchen and living room as well as 3 good sized bedrooms. The kitchen has all you need to cook and eat in, including coffee maker and microwave. The owner was very attentive, and had a listing of great restaurants, shops, bars, and attractions in the area. He also provided a cell phone which could receive incoming calls or call him directly any time. He speaks English fluently, and helped us decide between several different options of activities to do. Check in and check out was easy. There is a coffee shop and a Co-op grocery store right across the street. Having a washing machine was convenient, and we could have packed fewer clothes. Note that drying is by rack, which is provided. There is an elevator, but be aware that it is accessed by going up or down several stairs. I recommend looking into the MyTaxi app before coming to Rome. The free wifi in the apt made it possible to use the app to arrange for a taxi to pick us up right out front, and it seemed to cost less than just flagging one down. Uber is way more expensive.

We definitely plan to stay either here, or in one of Luigi's other apartments on future visits. Thanks very much!!

Beautiful room in a perfect spot.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 night stay here with our family of 5 (kids: 9,13,16). We walked to the Pantheon, Coliseum, Spanish Steps & Vatican City. Loved the neighborhood feel to the area instead of the shopping district of the Spanish Steps location. Restaurants & boutique shops all around. Perfect spot for us. The room was very clean & comfortable with plenty of room. Thank you!

Excellent location; great service

  • 5 of 5

My family was looking for a walkable location in the heart of Rome with enough space for two parents and three teenage children. This apartment was perfect. Luigi was excellent to work with- very professional and above-board. He even helped arrange transportation to the airport. The apartment was very clean- the bedrooms were large and inviting. We walked EVERYWHERE from here- it was an outstanding location. There is a great cafe across the street for morning pastries and coffee and a grocery store very nearby as well. I can't recommend it highly enough!

Excellent location and service

  • 5 of 5

Great location, close to just about everything. Good bus stop 200 mts away on Corso Vitor Emmanuelle. Luigi was quick to respond to our every need. The cleaning lady was prompt and very thorough. Good restaurants close by; walking distance from Piazza de' Fiori and Navona. Great for evening walks (in winter) to St Peter's

What a find!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (wife, 4 kids and mother) stayed at this wonderful apartment while in Rome, as we toured through Italy. This apartment was unique: the lighting, fireplace and furnishings all work to give the place a ton of charm. Most importantly, the apartment was easily within walking distance to all the major sights in the city.

Luigi is a great host! He couldn't have done anymore to improve our stay.

We were steps away from the Campo de Fiori, where we enjoyed hanging out in the evenings. Nearby was also a little grocery store, which had all the necessities for a fraction of the price you'd pay elsewhere. We were also very close to Piazza Navona and the Spanish Steps. We walked to the Colosseum and Roman Forum, as well as the Vatican, all without any problems whatsoever. Despite the cold weather, Rome was amazing, and this apartment, and passing by Campo de Fiori every day on the way in/out, was spectacular. If you're into clothes, there's a great little tie shop, where the owner and his staff hand make ties and scarves, personalized to the customer in only 2 days. I bought 2 7-fold ties, and love them both. There was also Bessutti Tessuti nearby, which could likely go down as the most epic fabric store in the world--thousands and thousands of bolts, including Zegna and silks used by all the major italian designers--a really neat place to shop, especially if you have a tailor.
