As soon as I saw this apartment i said to myself ' this one has to be mine ' !

I was impressed by the MAJESTIC-SUNTUOSITY of the living room, by the high wood beam ceiling painted in white lime , the high windows and most of all by the original COTTO tails, it has 5 centuries, every tail has his own history, one different from the other one, every one Smoothed in different ways by the time, the original DOOR FRAME, this was exactly what I WAS LOOKING FOR, I hope this is what You will say seeing pictures and most of all when You will have the privilege and the pleasure to walk through the door !

Then there is a huge double bedroom with the larger bed You an find in italy 170, a sofa , Iranian carpet, an amazing antique desk and 2 big pillows in the floor. The bed head is an Armani frame I cut and I brought to my upholsterer to have it done in this way.

I was told I'm a very easy person, easy to get along with too! I just try to give what I would like to receive when I go abroad and from everyday's life too! For me your holiday starts when You send me an e-mail so no stress in the booking procedures and regarding payment which means friendly but professional attitude too. (To reserve the apartment there is a legal contract and You will have my ID, I've never ever sent money without having a contract.....I just try to give what I would like to receive. Another thing to try to make You understand a little bit more of my friendly-professional attitude, if You have a friend or a colleague in town able to come to have a look at the apartment ( according to the availability of the apartment) I would be glad to have coffee with them showing the apartment...I HAVE EVERYTHING TO SHOW

Great Location but needs more attention in many areas.

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is in a great location. The building is antique and goes with an authentic Roman experience.

The apartment needs to have a deep cleaning of the cushions, rugs, and repairs. The sofas in the living room are not the same ones that are shown in the picture. The sofas in the living room are not confortable, and the current cushions need new fabric, because the one that is on is ripped in several parts. The table in the kitchen was broken, so we couldn't use it, the kettle didn't have a lid. Wall in the bathroom needs repair. The towels need to be replace. Overall there is lack of attention to details.

I was also charged for an extra bed $180 for the 5th person, that I told them that I didn't need. But they still charged us for it. This was not a good start.

This place is not cheap, so it should offer better conditions.

Travelers from California.

This was absolutely wonderful- my husband took my mother-in-law to Rome and we had plenty of space and enough room to spend time together at the apartment. We also took advantage of their airport transfer - made it very easy to get where we were going after a long flight and not having a clue where we were!

Marco met us at the apartment and even walked us to our first location to make sure we didn't get lost.

The only thing that needs to be pointed out is that there isn't an elevator and my mother-in-law, who is 75 did have some difficulty going up and down the two flights of stairs - but that's it - other than that perfect and when I go back will only stay with Magic Rome.

The apartment is spectacular--even more than the photos!

  • 4 of 5

We loved the apartment and Fabrizio, who made sure his staff took care of what small requests we had. My husband and I normally

travel alone but we had two friends stay with us for four of the 21 day and it was great! It's a perfect apartment for two couples--bedrooms separated and a living room with three couches! That said, I must prepare you for the situation in the building lobby/entry. The garbage cans are lined up right inside the door and when they are not overflowing, it's fine--in the historic district garbage cans in the hall are very common even in more expensive apartments as we saw going around. Unfortunately our garbage cans--especially the one for glass bottles--was overflowing most of the time. The apartment is so good, however, that I would still highly recommend it.

Beautifully renovated home in historic building.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was very beautifully renovated, in a historic building. It was very large, clean, comfortable and tastefully upgraded with modern touches. The kitchen and the bathrooms are very modern, clean, large and confortable. The home was very well equipped with all the amenities. It is located near Campo di Fiori, a very nice area with lots of coffee shops, restaurants and beautiful stores, in the heart of the centro historico.

Also, the apartment has air conditioning, which was a great thing to have considering we were there in August, which was very hot.

I highly recommend this place and would go back with my family.
