Guestbook comments from the manager

We six adults and a three-year old just spent four days in this well-located, comfortable & clean apartment, two mins walk to Campo and 10-20 mins walk to the main sights. I'd thoroughly recommend it to others. Comunication with our host, Veronika, was good and we were dealt with efficiently. The only negatives to report are: 1. The airport car service offered: one of our couples had to wait 90 mins at the airport; another car did not arrive at all. Hopefully this service can be improved in future. 2. Wifi is advertised but was very slow

Rome Adventure

  • 5 of 5

We came to Rome with three of our adult grandchildren and one girl friend. The apartment was perfect for us. The location was central to everything. We were able to walk to all venues and the area was safe for the young people to party in Romantic Rome. We will stay here in our next visit to Rome.

Excellent location, solid apartment

  • 4 of 5

Listing mentions that there is a Clothes Dryer; there is none. There was enough hot water for 5 showers spaced out morning and evenings. Recommend.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your positive review. I have another flat in that building with a dryer but this apartment does not have a separate dryer so that may be a mistake. Will check and correct straight away. Safe travels and thanks again.

A great apartment in a great area of Rome. What could be better?

  • 5 of 5

We highly recommend this apartment. It is large, clean, comfortable, well maintained, well stocked and well located. Its location cannot be beat. The apartment is on Piazza Spada with Palazzo Spada in your view from all the main rooms. (Check out the forced perspective architecture in the courtyard.) It's two blocks from Campo de' Fiori, and two blocks from Palazzo Farnese. (You can see Michelangelo's cornice from the master bedroom--it isn't straight.) We were a couple in a three bedroom apartment, so we slept in the master and turned the second bedroom into a dressing room. We had separate bathrooms! We didn't cook in the apartment, so I cannot comment on the kitchen beyond it having a working refrigerator for our cheese, wine and prosciutto. It all worked out very well. The people at Habitat Italy were professional, friendly and got everything right, which made our trip easy. If you fly into Rome we recommend that you take advantage of the option of having a car meet you at the airport. They were able to coordinate with the Habitat Italy staff, so there were no loose ends. Having a great place to stay while we were in Rome helped to make the experience a major success.

Safe, convenient and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

Habitat Italy was totally on it and super helpful. They were great at arranging transportation, being at the unit on time, etc. the place was comfortable and in good working order. The plumbing had some challenges. Water heater ran out super quickly. Most drains weren't draining efficiently. If the plumbing was worked out then it would be 5 stars. It's Rome, and old building, I expected most things I saw. I'd consider staying again, but definitely with Habitat Italy. 20-25 minute walk to every major site. Lots of good food options, close to Pantheon.

Amazing location, needs a little TLC

  • 3 of 5

The location is 5 stars! Central to a daily outside fresh market and everywhere you want to go. The house is lovely but think it suffers from needing a little TLC. There were ants and fruit flies in the kitchen and the showers did not drain. You needed to stop mid shower, let it slowly drain and then turn back on the shower to finish up. I'm not sure if this is typical to the area and that the pipes are problematic, but it was pretty frustrating to stand in the shower wet everyday waiting for 7-8 minutes for the water to drain! The apartment is lovely otherwise, so with a little attention would make this 5 stars again.

Map

Car: not necessary

This beautifully renovated apartment is situated in a 16th Century National Landmark Building located directly in a Charming little Piazza and facing the marvelous Spada Palace built in 1540 and modified to its present state by Francesco Borromini. Borromini created, among other things, the masterpiece of trompe-l'oeil of false perspective where the sequence of columns of decreasing height and the floor that rises create the optical illusion of a long tunnel, in the bottom of the gallery, in a sunlit garden, there is a sculpture that looks natural size, while in reality it is only 60 cm high.

The sculptural decoration of the mannerist stucco facade of the building, and the courtyard with sculptures in niches framed by garlands of flowers and fruit, and grotesque scenes of symbolic meaning in relief between the small windows of the mezzanine, make it the richest surviving façade of the Roman Cinquecento in Rome. The building houses, among other masterpieces, a colossal sculpture of Pompey the Great, unearthed in 1552 beneath the walls of a Roman villa.

The Piazza is located in Rome’s most elegant Renaissance quarter between the Farnese Palace, designed by Michelangelo and now home to the French Embassy and steps from the world famous Piazza Navona, the traditional open food mart of Campo de’Fiori and the Oldest Jewish Quarter in Europe. In addition, the apartment is just a short walk from the Historic Center’s main transport hub in Largo Argentina, with express buses to Termini and tram service directly to the Trastevere station and on-going connections to the Airport.

The area is full of shops, cafe’s, near the Campo de’ Fiori open market, the Pantheon and just 5 minutes’ walk across the bridge to the lively Trastevere quarter. Well serviced, there are also a number of supermarkets, gyms and shops nearby. Truly an excellent location and an oasis of quiet and beauty from which to explore Rome's multilayered historical district.
