I was born and raised here in Rome. In the late 1960's, my father was one of the founders of the American University of Rome (AUR), and, indeed, the apartment was the administrative office and classroom (and impromptu party space) for AUR over a number of years. So, the apartment has been in my family for over 40 years.

Although I now live near Washington, DC, where I am an economist, I come back to Rome as often as possible. Despite all my time here, Rome continues to be a fascinating city that always has more to offer. I hope you find the Eternal City as welcoming and wonderful as I do.

Perfect location, beautiful apartment [five stars]

  • Submitted: Jan 15, 2014
  • Stayed: Dec 2013
Long before our trip, the owner sent us a hugely helpful list of resources and ideas of things to do in Rome; the apartment itself has every guidebook imaginable as well as maps, plus a binder full of tips on places to eat, places to avoid, how to navigate the subway (simple, as it turns out, and just steps away). Al that, combined with the unbeatable location, made us feel we had the inside track on the city. The apartment is very tastefully decorated, both modern and comfortable, as well as being quite large. At the end of a day of walking, it was great to sprawl out in the living room and watch a DVD or listen to music -- there are books to read, movies to watch, an iPod with a good selection of songs. The beds are comfortable and even on New Year's Eve, with fireworks going off all around us, we had no trouble at all sleeping thanks to the white noise machine in the bedroom. There's a lot of storage space and many thoughtful touches (umbrellas; bandaids; lots of soap; laundry detergent). It was like borrowing the home of a thoughtful friend who has great taste and a genuine desire to insure you have a good time. The apartment was the number one reason we had a wonderful time in Rome, and we will be back, Asap. [Posted on flipkey.com January 11, 2014]

Perfect Roman Experience

  • Submitted: Nov 19, 2013

"We very much enjoyed our stay in the Spanish Steps apartment two months ago in September 2013.

We brought with us some friends with us who had never experienced Rome before (!!) and the combination of the sights, sounds and tastes of the Eternal City - and the comfort and proximity of your apartment meant that our five night stay was very special indeed. Our greeting at the apartment was friendly and warm and as professional as could be imagined - and the accommodation was first class. We also very much enjoyed and made good use of the personally compiled food and restaurant guide left in the living room - and had some of our most enjoyable meals at the owner's recommended restaurants. We will not hesitate to recommend the Spanish Steps apartment to friends and relatives - and will certainly stay there again in the future."

I took my family of four including 2 teenage girls for a 15 day trip to Paris and Italy. We rented 3 apartments in the 3 major cities - Paris, Rome, and Florence (all found thru homeaway.com). Our favorite by far was the Spanish Steps apartment. We loved it and didn't want to leave! It is as advertised and exceeded our expectations. If it is available for dates you are going, BOOK IT!
This is the apartment I would want to own and live in if I were living in Rome.
Here are the highlights:
* Location, location, location - perfectly situated next to Spanish Steps & Trevi fountain. Walking distance to shopping on Corso, 20 minute walk to Pantheon and Piazza Navona. Metro is 5 minute walk if you want to go to Vatican.
* Fabulous condition - Apartment feels like new, A/Cs are great with remote, wood floors, modern bathrooms, kitchen, furniture
* Spacious - bedrooms are big, living room is large, separate dining room which we didn't even use
* Sunlight - Nice light in apartment, windows open to street
* Bathrooms have dual showerheads including overhead, master bath is large
* Laptop & printer in bedroom, wi-fi works fine
* Excellent instructions in apartment
* Wonderful travel books and written notes
Rosie is great property manager who showed us around, got us a taxi for the train station and recommended a wonderful restaurant which was our favorite.
Highly recommend Sofia restaurant which we went to twice, one block away.
The Hosteria pizzeria around the corner had great pizza. Have a great time, already missing being in Rome!

Like borrowing an apartment from a good friend

  • Submitted: Jun 16, 2013
  • Stayed: Jun 2013
From first enquiry to the pick up to return to the airport it felt as if we were being looked after by good friends. The owner, David, really cares about the quality of your holiday and wants to make sure you have the best possible time. The apartment is spacious, cool and comfortable and in an ideal location for walking to most of the major sights. It feels like, and is, a home from home where the owners themselves chill out and revel in this gorgeous city. The information provided is excellent and we took advantage of David's deep knowledge of the city and its attractions. He has spent many years living in and visiting Rome and the apartment is full of touches that only one who knows it well could provide. For example, the patrons of the local restaurant can get a little rowdy at night so there is a 'white noise machine' that plays you soothing surf sounds to help you sleep! This was also useful because our visit coincided with a gathering of hundreds of Harley Davidson owners who were in the city to celebrate 110 years since the founding of the company. They like to ride the streets at night!
Everything worked perfectly - the airport pick up is great and Rosie, the guest services manager was warm and friendly. It was good to know she was just a phone call away if anything had gone wrong. Luckily, nothing did. We would recommend getting her to arrange the return trip to the airport as it is reasonably priced and reliable.
We cannot recommend this apartment highly enough.

In the heart of the historic center, between the beautiful Spanish Steps and the famous Trevi fountain, the apartment is within walking distance of many of Rome's most famous sights and surrounded by restaurants and world-class shopping. Walk to the Colosseum, Roman Forum, and Capitoline museums, and even the Vatican. Excellent access to metro, taxis, and bus stops, and a good supermarket is around the corner. All the wonders of Rome are within easy reach. The area is upscale and safe, perfect for the traditional evening stroll after a fabulous meal, while enjoying an unforgettable gelato!
