Natalia worked as a flight attendant (cabin crew) for Alitalia Airlines from 1970 to 1995. Prior to her work at Alitalia, she lived for more than a year in London, studying and working in a tourist agency. She speaks excellent English, understands and speaks Spanish and can 'get by' in French.

The twenty-five years she spent traveling from one country to another gave her an opportunity to learn about the ways and customs of many countries and enhanced her natural predisposition for interpersonal relationships; she always succeeds in establishing an immediate, friendly relationship with her guests.

Since 1995, she has attended the 'Academy of Decorative Arts', discovering a hidden talent for painting and decorating that she never imagined before. She now puts this talent to use personally decorating her apartments. In fact, the tiles in the kitchens and the tabletops in the dining areas of her apartments are all hand painted as well as the tromp l'oeil paintings, which gives each apartment a unique touch.

In the last 4 years she has attended courses of the History of Roman Art, which allowed her to get to know the city on a new level. She provides her guests with useful information on Rome and its monuments and archaeological sites.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2002

Because this building has a story: here is the story of the building

(from 'Le strade di Roma' - Newton Compton Editors)

HOUSE OF CHARLES IV OF BOHEMIA: there is a legend regarding the founding of the Hospital of the nation of Bohemia, which was found at number 132 via dei Banchi Vecchi. As the legend goes, Charles IV had promised Pope Urbano V - in occasion of his coming to Rome in order to be crowned king in 1355 - to not enter the city before the date set for the ceremony. However, unable to resist his desire to visit the Holy city (he was staying with his entourage at Prati di Nerone), he disguised himself as a pilgrim and was able wander about Rome for several days. He stayed in this modest building that he later acquired, designating it as a hostel for the pilgrims of his nation. The plaque that is still found on the building is dated 1357 and refers to the second visit of the King to Rome, when perhaps he acquired the building and the hospital founded. The plaque reads as follows (in Latin):

My husband, sixteen year old daughter and I spent five nights here in March 2014. The apartment is equipped with everything that you need and has plenty of space and a lovely shabby chic decorating scheme. The location is fantastic. We walked everywhere. The only transportation we used besides our feet for the week was the cab from the airport and a cab to the train station when we left (and the taxi stand is a block away). Campo dei Fiori is a great neighborhood for dining out and hanging out. Small shops and the piazza's market provide everything that you need for breakfast at the apartment. We never cooked because the dining options were too numerous, but the kitchen is fully equipped should you want to cook. Natalia and Walter were lovely and helpful. The Wifi worked great. We highly recommend and would stay there again.

When in Rome... stay here!

This is the perfect set up and couldn't be a better location in Rome if you want to be central to everything. We did not need to take a cab or other public transportation anywhere - we visited all the tourist sites, including, Borghese gardens, Vatican, Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, Colosseum, etc. Everything is in walking distance. Easily. However, the location is in a very quaint area with dozens of restaurants, cafes, and markets around that cater (from what I could tell in my limited knowledge of the city) to locals. It's the best of both worlds.

Also, Walter and Natalia are the perfect hosts. Even while they were out of town during the time I was at their place they had every angle covered with the help of their friend Stefani. Guide books, maps, information, booking a car for us to return to the airport... it was all arranged. We couldn't be happier with our stay and certainly recommend this place to anyone.

My family of 4 - two teenage daughters - had a fabulous stay in this apartment. We only had 2 1/2 days and the location of the apartment allowed us to maximize our sightseeing. Having a grocery and market nearby were perfect for breakfast and great restaurants just steps away. The apartment was very comfortable for us, extremely clean and well appointed. Having the cell phone was great as was the english language cable! Natalia and Walter are everything other reviewers say - they spent a great deal of time acquainting us with Rome and the apartment and were incredibly responsive to our needs. Great way to see Rome!

This was a great find and we've already recommended it. If you want to get away from the American style hotel and touch a bit of the local culture and life, this is the place. Facilities are very well maintained and provide the features you'd expect at your own home with a Roman flavour. The building dates back to the 14th century and you can feel this as you ascend the narrow staircase with worn stone steps. However when you enter the apartment you find high ceilings and doorways, good sized rooms for old buildings in Europe and modern plumbing and electrical services. Topping the apartment itself, is the location. We lucked out in the December weather and walked to the major attractions. The local jewel to us was the wine merchant directly across the narrow street. In a small, very quaint, old store was a great selection of bottled wines, a display case offering appetizers and wine by the glass. Almost all the patrons were locals stopping in for a glass and conversation.
The apartments owners are very involved and reachable by cell anytime. We locked ourselves out early one morning as we were departing and had to call. Within 20 minutes, the owner was there for us.

The location is excellent. If you're a walker you can walk as far as Borghese Gardens or the Colliseum from here. At the end of the block you'll find a grocery store, a trattoria, a cafe, and a kiosk selling newspapers. You're only a few blocks from Campo Fiori where you can buy all sorts of groceries and the apartment has a kitchen you can really cook in if you don't want anything elaborate. Many restaurants nearby. We felt very safe with the secure lock system. The apartment is very comfortable although the kitchen might be a bit crowded for four -- still this is not a major issue. The owners leave an awful lot of information on bus routes, locations of grocery store, restaurants, etc.. We didn't need to call on the owners but I am sure they would be very helpful in an emergency. We would definitely recommend this apartment.
