Overview

Piazza Navona Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Winter in Rome at Ivy House_Pantheon - 2BR/2BA - Elevator/WiFi/Washer/Mobile

Ivy House is a 100 square meter apartment on the second floor of a palace dating from the sixteenth century, despite its late baroque facade, set up in Piazza di Firenze, in the historical district Campo Marzio, Rome center. Halfway Via del Corso, the shopping street with plenty of Rome's top boutiques, and Piazza Navona, one of the eternal city's most ancient squares, Piazza di Firenze is a favourable starting point to discover the historical center. The district also includes many venues for leisure, such as coffee and lounge bars, restaurants and pizzerias among the best in Rome.

The place is, with its wide rooms and two bathrooms, ideal for one family with children or two couples (there are two single beds convertible into double in one of the two bedrooms). It is truly home, full of books on the wall shelves for reading on the sofas (there are three! One is convertible into a double bed) furnishing a coffered-ceiling living room decorated with ivy leaves, from which the name of the apartment.

The hallway opens into the three-couched living room (there is one sofa bed) communicating with the oval-tabled dining room, the fully equipped kitchen (with dishwasher and washing machine), a passage to the bathrooms (the biggest with tub, the smallest one with shower) and the king-size bedroom (with iron headboard and wood wardrobe). Another bedroom, bigger than that (two single beds or one double), is furnished with two desks and TV. The rooms are lightened by bright walls and big windows, which open on to Piazza di Firenze and a side street. The parquet floor makes it all even cosier.

Wi-fi internet and emergency cell phone are included.

A little paradise

  • 5 of 5

Seeing the pictures of Ivy House when looking for an apartment in Rome, I immediately felt that this was a wonderful place. And indeed it is! It is perfect in every way, beautiful, spacious, light, very central, and all the books and other homely items give it a very comforting atmosphere. The only thing that made me a little nervous were the neighbours complaining about the noise our children were supposed to be making, but I honestly didn't think they were making such a racket. Maybe Ivy House should be advertised as being a place not suitable for families with young children; Thank you, everybody at From Home to Rome, you have been very helpful and nice!

IVY House

  • 4 of 5

This was an excellent location and very safe one also. Walking distance to a lot of attractions and great restaurants. the 2 bathrooms help with 4 people getting ready for the evening. Lot of Books!!! Emanuele Buffa was great to work with and very helpful for a first timer in Rome.

Perfect Location! Great Managers, just plain awful apartment.

  • 1 of 5

Ivy House is managed by very competent and friendly Emanuele and assistant Sara. They're helpful, knowledgeable, professional, superb hosts, assisting cheerfully with airport pickup, luggage, and offering tours- plus cooking at the apartment.

Perfect Location! Minutes from piazzas, good restaurants, and entertainment. Elevator for luggage.

Size about 1,200 square feet, high ceilings, large living room view to piazza below. Dining room had rickety fragile chairs, bedroom mattresses were just plain awful, flat, thin, uncomfortable. Beddin was fresh and clean. Towels were large, but rationed- 1 bath towel, 1 hand towel, 1 bath mat per person per week.

The apartment was terribly uncomfortable. Sofas were old & sagging. No living room tables except a 30” round table, filled edge-to-edge with old liquor bottles. Two giant, flat, dusty cushions in the living room were stacked with magazines. The living room is miserably dark at night. The large dining table was covered with avocado gray plastic; homely, dull, dark. The queen bedroom has 2 fragile light fixtures hanging precariously by the bed; with bulbs so dim it’s impossible to read a book.

The internet router/modem signal reaches about 15 feet; technically there's wi-fi; but we had to gather in the bedroom to use it. Manager Emanuele provided a cell phone for local calls – a very nice convenience and much appreciated.

The bathroom shower curtain is slimy at the bottom; tile has black moldy crevices, plywood cabinet drawers don't open, there is a tiny countertop for cosmetics. The tub room has two plywood boxes next to the new pedestal sink. Plywood. Really. My white slippers got grungy dirty walking on the wood floor.

Two tiny closets are hard to use; difficult to open; they don’t have handles or knobs; they're fingernail breakers.

The kitchen has a nice tiny Ikea dishwasher. The tiny washing machine works, but I was afraid the creaky door would fall off every time I opened it. Dishes were chipped, pans are disgusting dark brown char from not being cleaned. Racks and jars were covered with oily dust film, kitchen rug filthy. Mandatory recycling, but no bins provided. What a mess! The filthy ironing board cover was brown, ruins a white shirt. Furnishings are cheap, flimsy, old, distasteful, depressing. This apartment is hands down the worst vacation rental I have ever experienced. I have reviewed dozens of places and I usually love everything; but this one-- NO!

Convenient location

  • 5 of 5

The listing description was accurate, and the photos did show exactly what the apartment looked like. I would recommend this place to my friends. It is within walking distance to many sightseeing areas and great restaurants. Giolitti was a great place to purchase gelato every night!! We appreciated that we were given a cell phone to use, and there was also an adapter for the electrical outlets. The rooms were spacious and allowed us to spread out (family of four). Was a bit noisy at night as the building was on a corner, but nothing intolerable. Bring your own guidebook as the one left for us had many pages ripped out. Wifi worked well, and kitchen was well-equipped. I would definitely stay here again.

4 days in Rome .

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 4 days in this apartment, me and my husband together with our children. It is located in the heart of the city. It's pretty, roomy, cozy, especially the living room, where I loved to sit!Beds were comfortable, and bed linen clean. Emanuele, the manager is a good-natured and hospitable man, he arranged for us airport car service and tours of the Colosseom and Vatican with an impressive guide named Ciara.

Perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5

The place is made for comfort, there being room and typicality combined together with the right location for sightseeing. The manager is very friendly and welcoming, his English may not be perfect but he could tell us to detail everything we needed to know about the place, and made us coffee at check-in, because we had not yet figured out how that Italian pot works.
