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.

GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
My husband, children, and I just returned from a short stay at the apartment. A great spot to stay while you see & do it all in Rome. It is clean, comfortable, and spacious with wifi and air conditioning. Piazza Navona neighborhood is perfect for walking, restaurants, shopping, & sightseeing. Ancient Rome is just around you. The Vatican is about a 5 minute walk. Make reservations online for the Vatican Museum & check to see if you need them for other museums. You'll be glad you did. Our favorite restaurant was trattoria DA TONINO right around the corner. Great food & wine & wonderful people. Don't miss their wine cellar. The owner was friendly & easy to deal with, always prompt to respond to my questions. He arranged transportation from, & back to the airport in a beautiful car with good, reliable & prompt drivers. Wonderful cappuccino options right outside your door too. We definitely would stay here again. Thanks for everything.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5
Beyond belief. Property was even better than we expected and location was so convenient. Way beyond our expectations, I will never stay anywhere else again. Very quiet location just a few steps from all seesigths of Rome. The owner was very helpful and accomodating. Quick and easy to get into Rome, but lots of great restaurants right around the property. Check out IL FICO restaurant as well as Tonino restaurant. Felt very safe. I can't imagine staying anywhere else.

Great apartment

  • 5 of 5
The apartment is as advertised and it looks exactly as shown in the pictures. The area is busy during the day and quieter at night. We always felt safe even walking to the apartment after dark. It's a few steps away from restaurants. There is a good gelato shop close to the apartment calle FRIGIDARIUM and you must try that!
We will definitely check this apartment for future trips!

Awesome apartment

  • 5 of 5
The service was great! Our host was very kind and made sure we had everything we needed and more.The apartment was clean and comfortable. Nice area to spread out and having cooking options is always great when your away from home.There is a market close by that has everything you need and more local delicious options. We were doing a lot of sightseeing .We were so exhausted when we came back.There were great little shops and your in walking distance to the Navona square.We had a great time it was a great place to come back to instead of a crowded hotel a little home away from home.

Great Old City Location

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in Casa Fontanella. This property was clean and neat. It was close to all the sites, we walked everywhere. There is only one bedroom but the living room couch was made into a bed for our daughters (18 & 23). We had views of the street from the kitchen. A great place to people watch as we were on the third floor and they couldn't see us. The marble steps up to the apartment were narrow and worn but the man who met us took the heavy luggage up and down for us. We were able to watch the World Cup from the bedroom TV where the AC is. This worked out nicely. There are several great restaurants on the way to Piazza Navona. There is a terrific gelato place, CamBioVita about four blocks down on the left towards Navona. They've only been open a few months but it was the best gelato we found while in Rome. We will come back to Rome and this apartment.

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.
