About the property

Wonderful Apartment In Piazza Navona: Turn The Corner And You 're There! Luxury

The house is located in a historic building, built in the seventeenth century by Pope Sixtus V, born Felice Peretti di Montalto, as exclusive residence for his family.

The noble floor was reserved for him, built according to his own specifications, and is in fact enriched with the beautiful wooden ceilings completely hand painted by artists of the period. A beautiful balcony, which is accessed from one of the rooms and, like most of the house, overlooks right on Via del Governo Vecchio, provides a unique overview of one of the most typical streets of the historic center of Rome.

The apartment on the first floor conveniently served by a lift is spread over 150 sqm. and has been completely renovated; equipped with every comfort, but with an emphasis on respect for its historic features, so having kept all the charm of the old and while providing comfort for a unique holiday.

The furniture is sober and elegant, being able to combine nicely with antique furniture and modern amenities in a very soft atmosphere. The house is equipped with indipendent heating, air conditioning, wi-fi, 42 'TV.

It 'consists of a large and bright living room, three bedrooms, one with a double bed and the other two with two single beds, two comfortable bathrooms equipped with large shower and a kitchen fully equipped.

The whole house is equipped with bed linen, bathroom and kitchen.

The beauty of the interior and the whole building is added to the location.

At only few meters you will be in one of the most beautiful squares in Rome, Piazza Navona, but not far, you can also enjoy the beauty of so many other historic sites as the Trevi Fountain, the Pantheon, the Spanish Steps, St. Peter's Square. In practice, only by a pleasant walk, you can reach the most famous sites of historical and cultural interest that only Rome can boast with its more than 2000 years of history.

If you want to immerse yourself in the heart of the city and enjoy its history, the beauty, traditions and all its fantastic shades, Exclusive is your choice.

Many will say that he visited Rome, the Eternal City; few will be able to tell that he had slept in the dwelling of a Pope.

Great location!!

  • 4 of 5

We were a party of four ladies on our annual gals getaway. Patrizia's apartment provided us with lots of space to spread out. We appreciated having two good-sized bathrooms. The apartment is located in an almost cavernous old palazzo right on Governo Vechio (sp?) -- a lively narrow street behind the Piazza Navona. Wonderful small restaurants, gelaterias, cafes and boutiques are right at your doorstep. The apartment is minutes away from the Piazza Navona, the Pantheon, Campo di Fiori, Trevi Fountain, etc.,... We really loved the neighborhood.

Here is a summary of my review:


- Location, location, location. Close to most major sites. Taxi stop two minutes at end of street.

- Patrizia arranged for complimentary car service to/from FCO. (Thank you!)

- Fun, lively street

- Very spacious and clean apartment. Huge master bedroom. Could definitely sleep more than 6 if there were more beds.

- Pleasant furnishings. Antiques. Sober decor and uncluttered.

- Beautifully painted ceiling beams.

- Kitchen -equipped for very light cooking, breakfasts & snacks.

- One room has balcony overlooking street.

- Very safe & secure building

- Elevator

- Carrefours market right down street


- Apartment a bit dark/dim which made the ambiance a little spooky. Many lightbulbs were out in the chandeliers and bedside lamps. This drove us nuts. We meant to buy some bulbs, but never got around to it.

-Dead plants and cigarette ashes in outside balcony planter.

- Really need a coffee maker or Nespresso. There was a french press, but the screen was bent up which made it useless. The one-cup stove top espresso pot was not adequate with several coffee drinking adults in the party.

-One of the showers only had enough hot water for one sponge bath-type shower (see below). Yet the other shower always had enough hot water. Also, all the shower heads need to be cleared of calcium deposits or replaced. The water just drizzled out of the heads from one shower which made it useful for a sponge bath. So, we ended up only using one of the showers between the four of us.

- The two front bedrooms gets a lot of street noise, but nothing a good set of earplugs can't cure. Personally, the noise didn't bother me.

Overall, we enjoyed our time in Patrizia's apartment. The cons weren't severe enough to negatively impact our stay and they can all be easily fixed. And, it really is hard to beat this location.

Staying in history

  • 4 of 5

I would love to give this apartment a 5 star, but there were several things that kept me from it: however all of those can be easily corrected.

First let me say all the great things about it. Patricia was fantastic. She was very helpful from the moment I contacted her. She arranged transportation from the cruise ship and to the airport. We arrived early off the cruise ship and she had her driver take us to a coffee shop and paid for our breakfast.

The Apartment is in a wonderful 1600's building and on a fantastic street. There were 3 women in our party and we felt safe and had a great time eating, drinking, and shopping outside our doorstep. We could walk to many of the sites we wanted see, and had tour guides to take us to the others.

The apartment is large, It has 3 bedrooms and 2 modern bathrooms. We loved sitting in the living room with drinks after a long day. Because this is a great location, it is also very noisy, so bring earplugs. If you get one of the 2 bedrooms facing the street you will need them.

As I said, I loved the apartment, but it had a few problems which can be corrected.

1. No kitchen towels

2. Only 1 bath towel and 1 hand towel per person for 5 days.

3. No wash rags or face towels

4. Flower pot on balcony had cigarettes in it.

5. Air Conditioners needed servicing, and you needed air conditioners.

6. There was 1 water glass

FYI There is no dishwasher and remember this is an old building so if you have allergies bring allergy medicine.

Would I stay here again. Yes, I think these negatives will be fixed and it is a wonderful location.

Beautiful apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was beautiful inside and the location is great. Walking distance to most of the sights in old rome. You can get to Navona in seconds as well as Campo de fiori. But the street it's on itself is great because it's on a vibrant cobblestone alley with great shops and restaurants. I could not have been happier. It was myself, my girlfriend, sister, mother and father and everyone absolutely loved it. In addition to the bedrooms and kitchen, we loved the large great room we called "the salon." Patrizia got us in swiftly and answered all questions. We had an absolutely great say here. Thank you so much!

Perfect Location and Beautiful Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

My mom, my son, my best friend, and myself shared this apartment for a week in Rome. It was a wonderful apartment and Patrizia was very helpful at check-in. My mother is disabled, so the convenience of a lift in Rome was perfect!! I can't say enough about the location. It is conveniently located to most tourist sites in Rome and there is a taxi stand at the end of the street, which made transportation easy. The best thing about the location was the restaurant Terra di Siena (out the front door to the right) and the gelato shop that is out the front door to the left about a block. We loved every minute in this apartment and plan to stay here again in the future.

A great place to stay to experience Rome

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed for 11 days in this beautiful apartment. It is located on a great cobblestone street with shops, restaurants, cafes and the Piazza Navona within a few minutes walk. We easily booked this apartment using PayPal to send our deposit. Patrizia is very attentive and responds to all inquiries in a timely manner. Inside this second floor apartment, the three rooms are large and can easily accomodate up to 6 people -- for four it is luxurious. It is a much better option and cheaper than renting two three star hotel rooms. The two "smaller" bedrooms in the apartment have windows that open on to the street below. The one draw back is that these two rooms can be a bit noisy at night with "Mimi and Coco's Bar/Restaurant" open late. The inside master bedroom is very quiet however. The apartment has a good sized kitchen with everything you need, two very nice and large bathrooms and a great living/dining room. The location is primo. Aside from Piazza Navona, you are very short walk to the Campo di Fiori market, and a beautiful twenty-five minute walk to St. Peter's Vatican. In fact you can walk to all the tourist spots inside 30 minutes from this great location and on the way discover the great restaurants, cool shops and sweet gelato everywhere. Patrizia, the apartment owner, is first class. She welcomed us and showed us the apartment on the first day and was readily available to answer questions via email when we needed to know something. My daughter accidently broke a bedside lamp (one of a matching pair that Patrizia couldn't replace anymore). Despite our offer to pay for it, she wouldn't accept payment. I rented a bicycle from Collatti which is very close by and easily brought it inside the apartment at night. Each morning, I enjoyed riding five minutes to the Tiber river, crossed the Sainta Angelis bridge in front of Castle Saint Angelos, and then down to the track that runs along the river for a great morning ride. After I'd pick up two cappicinos from the cafe on my way home and my wife and I would enjoy them in the beautiful well lit living room before heading off across the city. I miss it already. I hope to return many times and this apartment will be our first choice.

Beautiful apartment

  • 5 of 5

My family spent a wonderful few days in Rome last summer. The location of the apartment is amazing and Patricia could not have been more gracious. She was very responsive when we ran into a problem with the hot water because of the construction in the neighborhood. Patricia had the apartment repaired in no time! We loved our time there and would definitely stay again!
