Luxury apartment where you can enjoy a privileged life style appropriate to the finest neighborhood in Rome.
On the corner of Via Condotti in Rome, the Renata apartment is in the heart of all that is elegant in the Eternal City. A two minute walk puts you in front of the Spanish Steps, a location that is so popular because it is so central. Stroll for 15 minutes and you can find yourself at most of the noteworthy sites of historic Rome.
The building mirrors the neighborhood, a proper 'palazzo' built about 250 years ago when the Princes Torlonia were amassing their fortunes by managing the fortunes of the Vatican and build the palace across the street.
The apartment is on the third floor (second, European designation) and adjoins the Valentina apartment that, if available, can be rented at the same time to sleep up to eleven people, one of whom would occupy the sofa-bed in Renata.
Spacious and quiet elegance typify this fine apartment. Two large windows light the living room overlook Via Bocca di Leona.
Two white sofas are grouped by the working fireplace that features stonework from the ancestral home in southern Italy. The hand-hewn ceiling beams have been exposed to display the room as it was originally designed. Also in the living room are some fine antique pieces, a sideboard, and a dining table that will seat six. The living room has a television with satellite reception. The apartment is wired for high-speed internet.
One sofa converts to a bed for one person.
The flow is from the entry to living room or to down the hall to one bedroom. Off of the living room, one enters a small hall that leads to either the second bedroom or the kitchen.
The floors are tile with carefully selected patterns.
From the entry way, you can enter a bedroom suite that has twin beds that may be combined as a wide queen. The room has a set of square-framed antique prints above the bed and across the room the design is balanced with a mirror in horizontal strops. The closet area is great for travelers with spaces for stowing your suitcases and open shelves and rods that keep your items in view. The closet leads to a bathroom with a jacuzzi tub with shower.
Through the living room, you enter the second bedroom with a brass bedstead for the queen-sized bed. This bedroom has an ensuite bathroom with a fixed shower head over jacuzzi tub. This bedroom has a special feature, a small study with a private balcony.
The kitchen is equipped with a four burner stove top, oven, dishwasher, small refrigerator/freezer, and drip coffee maker. Also included for the guests are dishes, flatware, and pots and pans for guest use.
The kitchen also has its own sunny balcony that is glassed in to form the breakfast area. This pleasant area is great for casual meals. The laundry nook is accessed from this area.
Light housekeeping every other weekday.
