6 MIN WALK TO THE SPANISH STEPS! WIFI + ELEVATOR

Piazza di Spagna Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-7)

A spacious, comfortable, secure apartment well situated on the fourth floor of an elegant 19th century building with elevator at Via Vittoria Colonna:

Only a 5 minute walk to the Spanish Steps, 7 minutes to Piazza Navona, and 15 minutes to Saint Peter's Cathedral & the Vatican Museum. From this location, the most important historical sights of the Eternal City can be reached very quickly like Trevi Fountain or Saint Angel Castle! And if you don't want to walk you can arrive to Saint Peter's by bus #87 or Colossuem by bus #81 (the bus stop is just in front of our building!)

Search the address on the web and you'll be able to see its excellent location.

The apartment was recently completely renovated. Everything is new and neat, and as you can see from the pictures, it’s very modern, with high quality furnishings. This is a 2 bed rooms apartment: one master suite with en suite bathroom and a smaller bedroom with 2 single beds that can turn into a queen size bed with a second bath. Both rooms have high quality mattresses!

There is also a lovely and spacious living room with a double sofa bed, a dining area and separate kitchen! The kitchen is fully equipped with a dishwasher, washing machine, American coffee maker, kettle, gas stove with oven, fridge/freezer unit, as well as all the other necessary appliances like, iron and ironing board!

The apartment has air conditioning in both rooms and in the living room (daikin emura mini splits, great quality and functioning), parquet floors, iphone-ipod stereo, LCD TV/Sat to watch international tv channels in every room. ADSL & Wi-Fi internet connection keeps you in touch with the world, last but not the least we provide a pc and a printer to let you print boarding passes or tickets for museums or simply surf the web! and a land line to received phone calls from your beloved and to make locals and national phone calls!

Of course, since it’s in a delightful central neighborhood, it is well connected to public transportation to go everywhere and it is well served by a variety of local cafes, great restaurants, supermarkets, and delicatessens / convenience stores. There is a welcoming Italian café for breakfast or lunch only a few steps from the building, by the way: this neighborhood is the safest in Rome!

The apartment has only one key for the main front door and the apartment itself has no keys - only digit codes so that you don't have to worry about losing the keys.

The treatment's friendly and helpful and I’m always trying to make sure my guests have the best experience in Rome. If you want more information, feel free to read the feedback from previous guests that stayed in my apartments (see the comments on listings #247364, 362568, 359819).

We accept payments on-line with credit card on our web site and we provide assistance with drivers and tour companies!

I welcome your inquiries and questions and will respond within one business day.

every guest after the 4th pays an additional rate of 30 euros daily.

for runners: you can run at saint angel castle park or near the tiber or just inside the city center

for families: just inside the castle you have a lovely playground for your children if you want to relax with them!

we can also organize tours (you are welcomed to ask as you book the apartment, and book a tour before your arrival. it is hard to book at arrival since my american guide is very busy!)

we accept payment with visa, mastercard and maestro

paypal or american express (+4%)

Guestbook comments from the owner
Normally the downside of an apartment is you are on your own for tips, recommendations etc. Silvio is, however, a great host and always available, even sending you emails during the stay to stay in touch. This apartment is roomy and spotless, but most of all it is quiet - a wonderful place to escape to after a hectic day in noisy Rome. I would certainly stay here again, and would recommend to friends and family.

my family and i have started this turistic company, in the summer 2013 we will have 5 owned apartments and we plan to have 8/9 apts in 2014.

it is a big effort and now it has become my full time job.

Silvio Spicacci Minervini purchased this apartment in 2012

because it is the perfect area. it can be reached by car as no traffic block, and from there u can arrive anywhere in the city

it is incredible silent, which is a plus in roma, and the air conditioning is really excellent.

plus there is an elevator!

great restaurants nearby: you have to try splendor or la barchetta restaurants!

really excellent!!!!!

it's silence,you will sleep peacefully!!! compared to roman noise!

Silvio was great; his attention to detail and courteous follow up throughout our stay made all the difference. Silvio made sure we had a driver waiting for us at the airport upon our arrival and someone to meet us at the apartment. When we arrived, we were walked through the apartment in English and had all our questions answered. Silvio also left a booklet with local recommendations for markets, restaurants, etc. we found very helpful. On our last day, Silvio arranged for a driver to the train station.

GREAT LOCATION, BEAUTIFULLY APPOINTED, EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE

  • 5 of 5
My family of 7 (five adults, two kids ages 11 and 15) stayed in this lovely apartment during the summer of 2014. The location could not have been better - we walked everywhere we wanted to go, excluding the Coliseum (we took a very price-friendly cab-ride there, as it was way too hot to walk).

The apartment itself was roomy, very clean, cool (AC is a must in Rome in the summer), and beautifully-but-simply appointed. The wash-machine was simple to use and detergent was provided (so helpful for our family, as our trip was 4 weeks long).

Silvio provided excellent customer service. From the moment we contacted him through VRBO, through the day he walked us through the apartment to explain all the details, he was attentive, polite, pleasant, and happy to share his knowledge of the city with us. There were books and maps for our use, and a "house-book" full of helpful information like maps to the closest grocery stores, Silvio's favorite restaurants, and WIFI. There was also a printer for our use - which we haven't seen in most apartments we've rented in the past, but is essential if you are printing boarding passes, museum reservations, or walking directions.

At first we thought the price was a little above our budget, but researching hotels and other options showed us that it was a great deal for our group and for summer in Rome. It worked out great divided between us. We would definitely stay in this apartment again, or work with Silvio to rent another apartment if we were a different-sized group.

BEST APARTMENT SO FAR

  • 5 of 5
Having rented apartments in several different European cities, I can state unequivocally that this was the best apartment so far. It is a spacious, airy modern apartment that is well equipped and comfortable. The air conditioning works well and cools the entire apartment (essential in Rome in the summer).

The owner personally met us at the apartment and showed us how everything works. He was very accommodating and told us about bus stops (outside the front door) and nearby restaurants. He arranged airport pick-up and return.

The location was great. We walked to most tourist sites and restaurants. The Colliseum and Forum are an easy bus ride.

All said and done, I would recommend this apartment to anyone needing 2 bedrooms.

JUNE BRIGHT SYDNEY AUSTRALIA

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful apartment this beautiful apartment owned by Silvio at Vittoria Colonna Rome was all we could have asked for everything was at our finger tips. The proximity to attractions in Rome was just as we were told we were two couples traveling in Rome from Sydney Australia and all communications with Silvio were promptly answered nothing was left unanswered. We found the price on the apartment was very reasonable and payments were well receipted. The apartment was very comfortable for us all with more than enough room to more around the kitchen was well stocked, beds were comfortable and there were TVs in 3 rooms. When we holiday in Rome again we will be ringing Silvio

10 DAY ROME VACATION

  • 5 of 5
The apartment was just like the pictures. Very roomy and spacious. Very clean and well stocked with soap, toilet paper, towels, dishwasher soap. Location was great. 10 minute walk to Spanish steps and the metro stop and the bus stops right outside the apartment. There is a steakhouse right below the apartment that has excellent food. There is plenty of storage for your clothes, we had closets with plenty of hangers, everyone had a dresser. There is a washer in the apartment which was very convenient. No dryer so you have to dry your clothes on a drying rack, but who wants to do laundry on vacation?!? Silvio checked up on us a couple of times to make sure we we happy. He even hired us a driver to take us to and from the airport. The neighborhood is quiet and we felt very safe in the apartment. I would recommend this apartment to friends and relatives and would stay here again if we come back to Rome.
