Safe and convienent

  • 4 of 5

This apartment was extremely safe! Just steps from the river but very quiet and I had the best sleep. Comfortable bed, everything you needed to cook meals, a great stay. My only issue is the way you are required to bring cash to pay. On this long Italian trip I’ve pre-paid all other homeaway reservations. Carrying that much cash halfway around the world is not safe. Which is why I only stayed 2 nights. I would definitely go back when they started taking credit card payments, it’s such a great location.

Beautiful apartment blocks from all the best Rome sights!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this little apartment! It is so close to all the best sights in Rome. Almost every evening we ate dinner in Vatican City and it was beautiful. The apartment is well appointed, so we could enjoy an espresso (and maybe an American style breakfast) before our adventures, come back to a cool oasis in the afternoon for siesta and then venture out again. We always felt totally safe. The hosts even arranged our transportation to the airport. We recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a centrally located place in Rome!

Domus Claudiae Apartment was lovely!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment in Domus Claudiae was a lovely experience. It was beautiful inside with the owner's painted walls, high ceilings and all the amenities needed. It was a perfect location to the city centre; it was about a 15 min walk to the centre but lots of other restaurants and shopping close by. It was also close to the great monuments, Vatican, forts and castles etc. We really enjoyed our stay; the bed was very comfortable, more on the firm side, which I love. We would recommend staying here and we would definitely come back to Domus Claudiae! Thanks so much for hosting us!

My husband and I (both retired) stayed in this elegant, perfectly located apartment for a week. The wall paintings are indeed works of art that pay homage to the Roman Wall Paintings in the Villa Farnesina just up the street. We enjoyed coming back here after a long hot day of walking in the city.

The location is 2 blocks from the #64 bus stop by a bridge across the Tiber. Trastevere is the best place to stay in Rome.The apartment is off an alley and is very quiet - day and night. It is reached by a very short walk up a stone staircase on Via Sant'Onofrio. The street at the foot of this narrow alley leads to the heart of Trastevere with all its small restaurants, gelaterias and other charming places. We recommend not eating just pasta and pizza - those offerings are ubiquitous. There really are excellent dishes in Rome in addition to the ordinary fare. Be adventurous!

From the apartment, we walked all over Rome. The Vatican is about 20 minutes away and once we crossed the Tiber, all the neighborhoods that interested us were within walking distance. We did buy a Rome Pass and enjoyed hopping on and off buses when necessary.

The management firm is excellent! Emanuele and Sara respond to emails and phone calls very quickly. All the information provided was accurate and helpful. It is possible to get here from the airport by the Leonardo Da Vinci train to Termini and then the #64 bus. It works very well. We did use the limo service recommended by the management when we went back to the airport.

The apartment really is as promised in the description. There are small local shops where we bought food to prepare in the apartment. Larger markets are about 20 minutes on foot - but easily doable - even for retirees.

Enjoy this real gem. We will stay here again if we return to Rome.

Comfortable, clean, quiet and aesthetically pleasing

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our four night stay at Domius Claudiae. It's just as attractive as the pictures, with a nice, full kitchen. Emanuele was a welcoming host. It's near busy streets but is very quiet. Just a heads up if you're older or have any disabilities: the side street it's on goes up some stone and cobblestone steps to reach the front door. We are 71 and 65, fairly fit, and managed pretty well. There's a good restaurant on the corner, and we liked being right near Castel Sant'Angelo and the bridge. Easy to walk over the bridge and get to the various big sights, like Ancient Rome, Trevi and Spanish steps. It's very close to the Vatican. The neighborhood is not-quite Trastevere, but still near enough to get to on foot or bus.

N the heart of its district (on the right bank of the tiber) hat firstly belonged to the etruscans before the Romans, the apartment “ai fienaroli” represents a safe place, far from the traffic. It’s the perfect place to start to walk about just following the multitude of all the cultural inputs that fill the neighborhood. Bookshops, clubs and restaurants are a stone’s throw from the isola tiberina
