I am 100% Roman and in love for the Ethernal City even if always lived in an intrenational and multi-cultural environment.

Paolo Guglielmi purchased this apartment in 1898

If you want to live like a Roman Senator and/or a Patrician Noble Lady at the gladiators time, while enjoying the confort and style of the modern digital era, then go no further!!!

Get the real taste of Rome by living in the middle of the historical center. Walk anywhere and get lost in between 2.500 years old manufacts. Use bus, metro and train just a few meters away.

Try the best restaurants, hosterie, trattorie and gourmet places surrounding the area that made 'Italian Cuisine' famous all around the world!!!

Great size and location

  • 4 of 5
Having not been to Rome in 35 years, I was unsure of what to expect being near Via Nazionale. The apartment was a great size ad two bathrooms made it work fine for three adults. The living area had one comfortable couch and a dining table. Could have used just one more comfortable couch to really spread out. Unsure if there is/was sky TV as there were 150+ stations 2 in English. The wifi was great...only accessible in living room.
Would have liked additional towels per person as I had my moments with the washer. Cleanliness was fine...floors and bathrooms could have used another wipe down. Very quiet at night and slept great. Location was walkable to most attractions and center...but not so close that you would have to be in a less modern building.

Disappointed

  • 2 of 5
We were really looking forward to ending or holiday in Rome in this apartment.

Unfortunately this did not live up to our expectations. Firstly when we arrived we found there to be a heap of towels in the washing machine/dryer. When we checked the dryer we found there to be soap in the compartment and the towels were stuck on a drying cycle. We believe the towels had not been washed. Secondly we noticed the floors were left dirty and my wife ran a baby wipe on the floor and commented how disgusting it was. It appeared to us that no cleaner had been in the apartment from the previous guests to clean. This is one of the most important things for us when traveling with a young child. We spent our first day in Rome cleaning, washing and tidying the apartment. We also found one of the beds to have no sheets just a mattress and dooner and alot of the lights in the apartment did not work and the electricity safety switch would trip regularly and had to be reset. We contacted the caretaker who was only staying next door as we had issues with hot water service and we're advised we had to turn the heater on when we wanted hot water. Apparently the hot water service needs to be changed. We chose this apartment based on other reviews and perhaps our experience was a one off occurrence. However this was the worst condition of all the apartments we stayed in during our three week holiday which is disappointing as the location and facilities in the apartment are great. Nice local coffee shops nearby and close to Trevi fountain and Spanish steps.

Owner's Response: Dear Client, we are sorry that your feelings about our apartment were so negative when compared to those of dozens of other enthusiastic clients over a period of more than 5 years. If the level of cleanig was non stisfactory, you should have told us the first moment you entered the apartment and we would have immediately sent you the cleaning lady again. It is not fair to complain about this after your stay. This is the way a responsible and correct client behaves mainly for the benefit of its own holidays! All the other issues you are raising are simply RIDICULOUS and are probably due to misunderstandings in how to operate equipments and stuff.
Let me re-insure all future potential clients that EVERYTHING is working perfectly in the apartment and that we are always ready to intervene quickly in case of any difficulty that may araise. This of course if we are told about promptly.
We would always be happy to welcome you in the CARMEN to let you change your mind and join all the other clients who wrote extremely good comments about our property and our way to help and host people...

Extraordinary stay, thanks to CARMEN

  • 5 of 5
Stayed there for a week in August with my family. Impressive entrance to the building and safety is not a problem as it is located across the Ministry of Defence. :) Very spacious with high ceilings. My boys loved it and felt very comfortable during our stay. You find everything you need in the apartment. Colosseum, Fontana Di Trevi and others are all within 10-20 mins walking distance. We will definitely stay in this beautiful apartment on our next visit to Rome.

Great location, spotless apartment

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from our perfect holiday in Rome and the apartment we chose had a great contribution to that. The location was perfect, allowing us to walk almost everywhere. The apartment was spotless and large. And our son was delighted to find the best ice-cream in the world, on the owner's recommendation. A special thank you to Riccardo, who was very nice and helpful. We hope we will return soon. David, Laura and Dan Balica, London

Excellent Stay in Rome

  • 5 of 5
We spent 4 nights in this lovely building and apartment in October and wish we could have stayed longer. Everything was just as described and shown in the photos. The property was clean and well maintained. The location was perfect, close to the Termini train station and metro stops. Central location made it very easy to get around the city. We especially enjoyed the local shops, restaurants and stores. Paolo has prepared some wonderful guides to the city and neighborhood which were very helpful. We would plan to stay at the beautiful Carmen on our next visit and would not hesitate to suggest this beautiful location to our friends. Thank You.

The best place to stay in Rome

  • 5 of 5
I was very happy that I choose to stay in "Carmen" from many reasons:
1. The apartment is very cozy, clean with lot of space. The decoration is beautiful. The building is also beautiful with amazing elevator. What you see in the pictures is exactly what you get
2. Location, Location, Location - 2 minutes from Via Nazionale and P. Repubblica where you can find many bus lines that go to the major places in the city and 5-8 minutes from Trimini
3. Paolo the owner is very nice and honest. Few weeks after I booked the apartment he advise me that unexpected the municipality of Rome is starting a restoration works on the front of the building instate in autumn 2012. He promises me that he will make all the efforts to minimize any eventual possible disturbance to our stay. We really didn't heard or fill anything.
4. The apartment is not far from Monti neighborhood. You can find there lots of excellent restaurants like Crabonara (from 1906), Doozo, Urbana 47 and also sweet and unique shops.
Thank you Paolo we loved to stay in your apartment.
