To live a day in the life of a 16th Century Cardinal (Pope Sisto V), you would have to travel in a time machine. Luckily, Navona Garden Suites offers the next best thing- a stay in the original apartment of Cardinal Felice Peretti, who later became Pope Sisto V, the 227th pope of the Roman Catholic Church. From 1585 - 1590 he accomplished more than many other longer papacies in just 5 years time.
With a name like 'Papa Peretti' as the Romans called him, one would imagine a ruler of warmth and affection; much to the contrary, Peretti was a strict sovereign who ruled Rome with an iron fist in a velvet glove. Through his style of absolute monarchy, he revitalized Rome with the rebuilding of the aqueducts and roads. He also secured the city state by overseeing a mass execution of criminals and prisoners when first elected Pope, giving him a tough reputation.
You and your guests will enjoy the original living quarters of an authentic 16th-century interior of a Baroque noble palace located on Via Del Governo Vecchio (previously known as Via Papalis, street of the Popes), which is famous today not only for the Papal residences but also traditionally known for its cobble-stoned streets lined with artisan workshops that date back centuries.
To fully experience this beautiful 16th century neighborhood you can go shopping for the freshest food daily in Campo Di Fiori, schedule a cooking lesson with our private chef in Classic Italian Cuisine, a wine and cheese tasting with our certified sommelier, or just relax and enjoy this unique palace of a 16th century cardinal.

I don't know what I can add to the other laudatory reviews about this property, except to say that it may be the most spectacular place to stay in Rome. The beds are very comfortable, the modern kitchen is well equipped, both the concierge and maid services are superb and the location (a short walk from the Vatican, the Parthenon, Campo di Fiori and Piazza Navona) can't be beat. It's a truly unique property.
A tastefully decorated apartment in a historic building. The location was very convenient and you can walk to all major sites/tourist places around Rome. In general, a very good location, historic apartment, and comfortable accommodation. This is a great place and totally worth every penny.
My family of 7 (with a 2 yo) stayed for a week and loved every minute of it. Traian welcome us and explained every thing about the apartment when we arrived. The maid did a fabulous job daily and even did our laundry. That is above and beyond our expectations. Our 2 yo love the huge bath tub and enjoyed taking a bath every evening. The living room is huge so it was very nice to relax and chat with each other during evenings after an exciting day sightseeing.
The modern appliances make the stay very comfortable. Definitely stay again if we are to return to Rome in the future.
There really is no other word for it. This apartment is stunning. We've always stayed at hotels in Rome, but never again. This apartment is better located than any hotel we've stayed at. It's everything the description suggests. As central as central gets.
The photos may not do the apartment complete justice. It's more spacious than the photos suggest. Great for entertaining, but also very comfortable for just sitting back and reading a book.
The apartment was definitely clean, well-appointed. The wifi was very good, strong. The concierge service was indeed helpful.
The only reason I wouldn't recommend this apartment to a friend or associate, or to anyone reading this review, is that I wouldn't want the competition for upcoming dates. This is spectacular apartment that couldn't be more perfect.
This was our second time staying at this property -- this time without our kids! We just love the 5-star hotel treatment that we get when renting this for our vacation. The housekeeper is sooo nice and so detailed in her cleaning. We love the warm shower, spacious (American) kitchen, spacious everything as a matter of fact. This property is so well taken care of and we felt very much at home and relaxed during our stay.
There is also complimentary concierge service during your stay!
We love the area as well as you are walking distance to Piazza Navona and Campo de Fiori.
This is a very safe area and apartment -- we highly recommend it!
We stayed in the Papal Suites during our recent visit to Rome. The property is one of the nicest in Rome. Beautifully decorated, will easily accommodate six to eight people. The kitchen, dining and living room areas are comfortable and spacious. The wi-fi worked very well. ??The location is outstanding...just off Piazza Navona, easy walking to any of the major attractions in Rome, and many good restaurants in the neighborhood.??The building is very secure. The housekeeping staff does an excellent job, as the apartment is immaculate.??The staff is helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. ??We will stay here again.
Family friendly (caution with smaller children), Concierge service provides tours, transfer etc
