GREAT PLACE TO SEE ROME FROM

  • 5 of 5
We had a cosy but brilliant holiday here with 6 adults and 1 child. The location does not get much better than here, so close to walk to all the top tourist attractions and restaurants. Since it is in a back street it is nice and quiet too.

The description was slightly miss leading since it only has one bedroom not two, the living room doubles as the second bedroom. The bedroom is large enough to sleep 5 people (2 double beds and one single bed on the floor) with another double bed in the living room. The owner was friendly, accommodating and kept the place nice and clean.

Access to the apartment is up two flights of narrow winding stairs, so you will need to be comfortable with a small climb. It would be a great place for a families, even up to three or four kids. It was a short ride on bus no. 40 from Termini Station to near Ponte St. Angelo. Very close to the Vatican, only a short walk across the river.

CUTE, QUIET, RUSTIC AND CONVENIENT

  • 4 of 5
Casa Tabærna provided a perfect pied-a-terre for our family vacation in Rome. Four of us stayed 3 nights and would return again.
It is located in the heart of the old city, and is within walking distance of many of the principal visitor attractions. It is surrounded by a bustling network of cobblestone streets with shops, restaurants and bars, and yet it is quiet - we were woken in the mornings only by the sounds of seagulls.
The apartment is located on Viccolo della Campanella - be aware that there are two sections of street by that name, and given the complete and exact address, Google Maps points to the wrong location (2 short blocks away). The owner e-mailed us a picture of the front door - which turned out to be very useful.
On arrival, we waited in the narrow cobbled street for a few minutes (we were early) and at the appointed time a young man met us in and let us store our luggage until our actual check-in time a few hours later.
Entering through the locked street door, the apartment is 2 floors up a narrow, steep staircase that would be challenging with large suitcases and/or weak knees, but is typical for those buildings in old Rome. The apartment appears to have been recently renovated, and features a simple rustic decor with open-beam ceilings and hardwood floors throughout. It was clean and easy to maintain. One enters into the living area that has a couch which folds down into a double bed. This space joins a dining area with a stone fireplace and a table for 4. The kitchen is separate and fully functional, with small fridge and stove-top. We cooked and ate in 2 meals per day. A doorway from the living area leads to a large bedroom with one double bed and second couch/fold down double. The bathroom is off this room, and includes a bath/shower that gave plenty of hot water, as well as the laundry area. Washing machine worked well, and laundry went out on a line outside the front window (though there could have been more laundry pegs).
Basic supplies were limited - 1 kitchen towel, 1 roll of toilet paper, no bathroom hand-soap, no dish-washing liquid, laundry soap or basic cooking supplies (salt, pepper, cooking oil...). Fortunately there is a Carfourre-Express supermarket within a 5 minute walk which provided for all of our supply and food needs (open 'till 8PM even on Sunday).
Despite the few niggling shortfalls in the supplies area, the apartment served well. It was authentic, the location perfect and the price fair.

REALLY NICE

  • 5 of 5
Everything was fantastic! The apartment, location, the owner, etc. The apt is perfect for 4 - 6 persons and is prettier than the pictures! The apt is spotless and well equipped and is very charming. It is in a perfect location and is walking distance to a supermarket, restaurants, cafes, shops and any historical sight. The apartment was well equiped with pots, pans, spices, extra sheets, washer: we loved making our own expresso every morning. Internet worked perfectly. The bed was very comfortable and the apartment very quiet. The area is very safe. Communication was very efficient with the Owner introducing us to the area and explaining everyting in the apartment. I highly recommend staying here and cannot wait to visit again.

PEFECT LOCATION AND PERFECT APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5
This was the best place we have ever rented. I hesitated a bit before booking because it was slightly more expensive than some other rentals I looked at, but the quality of the apartment itself, combined with the quality of the information sent to us before our arrival and the check-in process, made it well worth the cost. We were welcomed with extremely professional levels of care and service. The apartment was beautiful, spotlessly clean and marvelously well equipped. It was on a quiet little street, and yet just 100 meters away from shops, boutiques, restaurants and supermarkets. Highly recommended.

SIMPLY BEAUTIFUL

  • 5 of 5
Perfect location and great value by Rome standards. Me, my wife and our three kids. Bus stop close by, which was great for arrival and departure. Other than that we were able to get to all main areas by foot. Big plus was that is was far enough away from the touristy spots to be able to unwind. Piazza Navona literally around the corner was a big positive. Seems to be one of the better places to relax and watch the world go by. Apartment itself is very nice and has all you need for self catering if that's what you prefer. Highly recommend this apartment and needless to say Rome.

A PERFECT VACATION

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I and my kids are currently staying here and we could have not asked for more. From the moment I emailed Elina about her apartment I was pretty sure we were in great hands. The space itself is really cool and very comfortable.The apartment has everything that we could have wanted, including a small, medium and large Bialetti pot. All the pots, pans and cooking utensils you could want/need, a very comfortable bed and the bathroom was, by Italian standards, big.If you're looking for a perfectly sized place that is within 15 minutes walk of everything with plenty of markets very close.

Piazza Navona. The most famous square of Baroque Rome stands on the site of Domitianus stadium and the name seems to derive from a popular corruption of the term for the competitive games in agone which were held here. From the times of Domitian on, the place was used almost exclusively for sports events, including the famous August regatta in which the participants wore the colours of the nobles and the civic clergy. Even now the feast of the Befana (January sixth) is celebrated there with a typical market.

Other Activities: Shopping, antiquing, museum.
