Unique accommodation with lovely terrace.

  • 4 of 5

We have just returned from a week in Rome, and thoroughly agree with the previous positive reviews. The penthouse has an unusual layout, which takes a bit of getting used to, but there is plenty of room and the furniture and pictures give the feeling of being in someone's home, and not holiday accommodation. Anna Maria and Ariel were both very helpful. The terrace is a wonderful bonus: we had lunch outside most days and it was blissfully quiet after the bustle of the streets. There are three excellent trattorias within 5 minutes walk- no need to go further! The only downside is that the kitchen- though well equipped- is very small and rather warm. This didn't bother us, as we didn't do any cooking and had cold lunches, but could be a problem for others. We can thoroughly recommend this property and would certainly choose it again for future visits to Rome.

Great property excellent location.

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay it is well equipped and the home well cared for. Bed was comfortable and having a dressing room directly across from the bathroom with plently of space to hang your cloths and get dressed was a bonus. We would recommend the Roma Penthouse to family and friends.

Another fantastic trip to Rome

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time in the Penthouse and once again it was amazing. From the start when we were greeted by Ariel at the front entrance as our taxi arrived to the moment Ariel saw us off nothing was too much trouble . The Appartment has everything you need and is fantastically located near to the Spanish steps and the major sites . The Vatican and coliseum are approx 30mins walk and great shopping and restaurants are on your doorstep. The terrace is a beautiful place to relax and soak up the sun all day long , or watch the sunset each day. We absolutely love Rome and could not think of a better place to stay . Thank you once again and we look forward to returning in the near future

Good location

  • 4 of 5

It was in a great location near all historic spots & shopping. Ariel was wonderful! He was so kind! The place was unique & large. The only downside is that the wifi only worked in one room, the a/c wasn't working & it was a little dirty in the bathroom & kitchen. Overall, I would definitely stay here again!! The patio, was AMAZING!!!

Owner's Response: Hello, Thank you for your comments, sorry to read about the dirt in the kitchen and in the bathroom. If you had told us we would have immediately done something. The apartment is very big and unfortunately the WiFi signal doesn't reach everywhere. The AC now works properly, we hope to have you here again! All the best from Rome

Beautiful apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

We found the apartment exactly as described by the owner and from the many wonderful reviews. It is a beautifully appointed, spacious, and comfortable place that is very central to the many historic sites. It has the extra convenience of having close access for purchasing food, finding restaurants, shops, and bars nearby. We immediately felt at home during our stay as the owner made us feel very welcome, and we enjoyed being a part of the warm personal environment that she has created there. This made our living experience quite special. We enjoyed having breakfast on the terrace and planning our days in Rome, knowing that we could easily return because of its location, to rest and be restored in comfort there, and venture out again! We look forward to returning.

Idyllic Italian Holiday

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented the Rome Penthouse for 10 days in October 2016. We have run out of superlatives to describe the experience, it exceeded our hopes. The apartment was really perfect for our needs. The location was ideal, walking distance to Piazza Popolo to the north, Piazza Venezia to the south, and everything in between. The amenities are just as described, the rooms and the terrace are even nicer than pictured. We only wish we could have

stayed longer! Ariel was very helpful at check-in and check-out, a great resource. We would not hesitate to recommend this apartment to any couple looking for a comfortable and tranquil space in the heart of Rome's historic hubbub with great access to the shopping triangle as well.

Arrivederci! Marie Bush

We are within walking distance of most of Rome's major sites. We advise against using a car in Rome (but if you do have a car, pay parking is available in a parking garage close to the apartment). It is possible to take taxis to visit sites farther away.

Rome is also well connected by bus. There is a bus stop just down the street from the apartment, and there are 2 subway stations not far away.
