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.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 1992

Lovely apartment

Thank you for your hospitality and sharing your lovely apartment with us. You have a lovely home here in Rome and we absolutely enjoyed ourselves. The packet that you put together for us was very helpful and the restaurant recommendations helped as well. All of us threw coins in the Trevi fountain so hopefully we will be back!

My son and daughter [and I] spent a week in Rome at this condo. The owner, David, was totally organized and professional. He was a pleasure to communicate with and to help us coordinate our trip.
The condo is awesome! It is located right in the middle of everything.
David had us picked up at the airport and had someone meet us there to show us the place. What a great week!!! We would surely stay at this condo again.

This apartment is THE BEST. It is within 10-15 minute walk to The Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, the Pantheon, Piazza Navonna, etc. The apartment is very modern with ipod docks, computer, etc. The beds are comfortable, the apartment could not be more perfect. The reservation with David was easy. He sent a car for us to the airport, had the apartment managers meet us, left us some inital cornetti, prosciutto, juice, etc. We COULD NOT have been more comfortable. There is a grocery store around the corner with a bakery across the street for that cappucinno that you wil want. The apartment was very clean. It has a washer/dryer combo. There are comfy robes for 4. The photos are accurate but the apartment is more beautifull. I would recommend this apartment to anyone who is travelling to Rome. The apartment has an interesting past. The building is very quiet. This is a large city so there is noise from an area bar on the weekend, no different than from any big city in the world. We will return again.

What a great experience we had in April. We felt lucky to be in the apartment so soon after it was redone.

Car service from the airport was a terrific add-on. It made our arrival much smoother than finding a cab, and there was no risk of an inflated cab fare. The driver waited for us to emerge from baggage claim after a great delay - we had the unfortunate experience of losing two bags. He provided a warm welcome and narrated some sight-seeing as we drove into the city.

Thoughtful contents of apartment would make it easy to travel light, knowing that some essentials would be there upon arrival. I'd brought converter/adapters, and there were plenty there. I'd brought a few key guide books and food guides, and the same ones (newer editions!) were to be found on the shelf. Touches such as bathrobes, umbrellas, games - all great. Rome-themed videos - great! iPod charging station - great! Nature sounds machine - smart. There were a couple noisy nights when the bars let out, but that's to be expected in that location, and the sound machines were a great solution. Having a computer and wireless network was also terrific. The wifi network was a little spotty, but I work in computing tech support and I imagine that the building structure makes it difficult to get network coverage when the construction is so substantial.

Location, location, location. Not only is the apartment situated in a great area for on-foot sight seeing, but proximity to two Metro stops, a bus depot and taxi stand bring everything within easy access. The supermarket around the corner was terrific, too.

Anna. There was one other outstanding aspect to staying in the apartment - the service and attention we received from Anna. We were without two of our bags when we arrived, and it was hard for us to think through how we'd pursue their return when we were scheduled to be out early the first day and completely booked until evening. Anna made the problem her own. She made calls to the airlines, suggested delivery to [her office], and persisted in following up with the airline and keeping us informed throughout the next day. It was also comforting to realize that [the property manager is available] though the extended hours of 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., [which] was a great option when compared with a smaller agency which might have more limited hours and smaller staff.
