ROME ITALY PERFECT ARCHETTO APARTMENT

Tucked away on a quaint small street near the Trevi Fountain, Rome's historic sites are at your doorstep. The Archetto apartment has a bright top-floor position, roominess and good layout. It has both a sunny terrace plus a small balcony. There is an elevator.

"This apartment is in a perfect location close to the fountain of Trevi and the Spanish steps. There are restaurants and shops abound all within walking distance."

Location

Just a 2-minute walk to the famous Trevi Fountain you'll be pleased to find a real Roman neighborhood with bakeries, cafes, fresh fruit and vegetable stands, pizzerie, geletaria's and handy access to public transportation.

The apartment is located on the top floor of a small building on a narrow side-street,

"All the information provided before the trip was so useful for booking driver from the airport and how to use all the appliances at the apartment plus much more."

With a coveted, sunny top-floor position the Archetto apartment delights with charm and comfort. The roomy living room is furnished with a queen size sofa bed and a single folding hassock bed. It has a large window overlooking the street, five floors below. The room's decor inspiration is the fresco painting over the sofa, painted in a bouquet of springtime colors. Bookshelves along the opposite wall hold light reading material, guidebooks, a few English language DVD's, remote controls, stereo, and flat screen TV. An upholstered chair, carved wooden armchair and coffee table complete the room. It's the perfect spot to while away an afternoon reading, napping on the sofa or enjoying cocktails before heading out to the bounty of wonderful restaurants that Rome has to offer.

"Fantastic - clean, very well equipped kitchen, comfy bed, bright and cheery, plenty of room, extremely quiet, plenty of places to put your things after unpacking, very nice living room, easy to relax here."

Opening onto the living room is the dining area which seats four. It has French doors two steps up leading out to a Juliette balcony, also overlooking the street down below.

The entry area has an antique bureau, good for clothing storage for guests using the sofa bed, a handy coat rack, and a leather campaign chair, providing a cozy den-like reading area.

The bedroom and kitchen are towards the back of the apartment and are also accessed off the entryway. The bedroom has interior facing windows, it overlooks the backs of other buildings across the way, a huge bonus in the bustling center of Rome. It is a very quiet bedroom, although with the windows open you

Guestbook comments from the manager

The Archetto apartment was wonderful – we absolutely loved the location, could not have picked a better spot – as you know, everything was so close. It was so nice to be able to quickly walk to the Trevi fountain at 6 a.m. To enjoy it without all the summer tourists! Also loved having the little restaurant beneath us, I think we went there nearly every day, if not for a meal, then for a drink or dessert on our way home.



The accommodation was very spacious, the sofabed was big, and having a large dining room table was great to spread out maps and computer, etc. My only comment was that there was a little side table in the bedroom that had a leg taped together, so it was not very sturdy. Also, there was a melted ice cream/popsicle treat left in the freezer in the kitchen fridge. So nothing major at all.



We appreciated all the instructions from you, and the literature left in the apartment by previous guests, and would not hesitate to rent from your company again.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the Archetto apartment in May 2016 for six days and had a fabulous time. The apartment's location is great, right in the middle of everything, around a couple of corners from the Trevi Fountain. The apartment had everything we needed or wanted during our stay in Rome. The kitchen was well stocked and the big refrigerator was nice. Having a washing machine was great and we used it most days. It is small and takes a long time by American standards, but it functions fine. We laid the clothes out on the drying rack on the terrace and stuff dried by the end of the day. The bed was very comfortable, even to a person with fibromyalgia.

Some tips:

For those who are gluten sensitive or celiac, the restaurant at street level right below the apartment does have gluten free pasta and can accommodate you. This was handy a couple of times when we were really hungry and ready to eat.

There is a supermarket several blocks from the apartment (the name is Coop, I think) that we bought stuff at several times. They do have some gluten free foods.

We booked Stefano (recommended by Italy Perfect) to pick us up at the airport and give us an overview tour of Rome. It was very good and we got to see some sights not in the city center we wouldn't have gotten to see otherwise. It was nice because he coordinated with Rosie, the woman who we needed to meet at the apartment. Given how tired we were after flying overnight and landing at 8 am, this was really nice. He also got us to and from the cruise ship port after we left the apartment. We recommend him.

Perfect apartment in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect apartment in a perfect location that put us within walking distance of nearly everything we wanted to do or see. The apartment has plenty of room and is comfortable and bright. It felt like home. We were sorry leave at the end of our stay, and homesick for it afterwards. The bed was comfortable (never got up with a backache), the kitchen just right, and the terrace and front balcony were a real pleasure. The apartment was by an ecclesiastical college, so priests and nuns walked by all day, making us feel like members of a neighborhood. The Trevi Fountain was a 3-minute walk. We took Lisa and Pat's suggestion and walked over to the fountain early in the morning where we had the fountain to ourselves while the sun rose over the buildings.

Here are some tips and suggestions. Car service: We hired Rocco's car service to get from the airport to the apartment and, later in the month, to pick us up from the train station and take us to the airport. We can't recommend Rocco and his driver highly enough. They were on-time, easy to get hold of, and helped us during a snafu in our travel plans - above and beyond what they needed to do. Rocco's phone and email are listed in the ItalyPerfect material on Rome. Things to see: As others have said, the Borghese Gallery was spectacular. The Roman ruins at night, when they are lit, are really memorable. We spent a lot of our time wandering through all the beautiful squares, and sat around drinking coffee and watching people go by. We went to the Palazzo Delia Pamfilij, another 3 minute walk from the apartment, on our first day, which provided a foundation for understanding 15th - 17th century art that was useful through the rest of our trip. The Pamfilij is a really fine museum.

ItalyPerfect: We are sorry we didn't know about ItalyPerfect before now. Lisa and Pat are AMAZING. Responsive, helpful, utterly reliable. As others have noted, the packet of information they provide to you before your trip is nothing short of excellent. Please read what they provide - it gives you all the information you need on basics, so that you can enjoy your trip and not sweat the small stuff. (In an ItalyPerfect post, Lisa said she wears a black quilted coat during the colder months just like Roman women. She's right about that. We met Lisa and Pat while in Rome, where they were inspecting new properties, and found them to be lovely, kind, and full of energy. I cannot recommend them, and ItalyPerfect, highly enough.

Our stay at Archetto was perfect.

  • 5 of 5

Rome was everything I expected and more. Our stay at Archetto was perfect. Right in the heart of everything. The apartment was perfect. It was nice to sit on the decks when you wanted to relax from all the site seeing. We recommend this apartment for your visit.

Wonderful Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

“Archetto” is a wonderful hideaway in the middle of Rome’s ancient city. It is perfectly located within walking distance of most of Rome’s major attractions. The apartment is comfortable, well equipped and secure. There can be a little noise from the street, but that is Rome. There are innumerable eating places within a short walk - we were spoilt for choice. Rosie met us at the apartment and was both informative and helpful. Importantly, Rosie was easily to contact, and made our arrival and departure very easy. I would be more than happy to stay in this apartment and to use Italy Perfect again.

Enjoyed our stay

  • 5 of 5

The apartment in Rome was very nice, comfortable bed, good location for sightseeing, we enjoyed the espresso maker each morning and figured out adding hot water to make it a lower octane. Plenty of storage for personal items. Nice to be able to wash clothes. Be aware no dryer, so bring easy to dry items. Would definitely recommend.

Liked De Renzos on the square in front of Pantheon. Lasagne excellent. Also stellar and reasonable for the quality. Marscapone near Museum Borghese.

Wish they had more American channels on the TV.

This apartment was beyond our expectations.

  • 5 of 5

Rosie, our host: She was delightful, attentive, wanted to be sure we had everyting we needed, did a splendid job of explaining every area of the apartment, was available, always on time and simply lovely.

The Apartment: Fantastic - clean, very well equipped kitchen, comfy bed, bright and cheery, plenty of room, extremely quiet, plenty of places to put your things after unpacking, very nice living room, easy to relax here.

Location: Great - short walking distance to the Victor Emanual monument which is where many of the buses and cab stands are located. It is fairly close to Trevi Fountain, but when we were there from 8-16-15 to -8-20-15, there was a major renovation of the Fountain and it was closed off. Have seen it in years past and it is magnificant. Spanish steps always worth a walk or bus ride. Don't miss the Borghese Gallery - it is beautiful and the setting is in

a gigantic park filled with mature trees - the park is vast, like a magical forest -worth going for a picnic.

Restaurants: Da Francesco is a great trattoria and we ate there 3 times. Not touristy. La Fontana di Venere- off the beaten track where a lot of locals hang out. Sant'Eustachio il Caffe is the incredible coffee house where all the locals go. They are efficient, brew great coffee - we went there at least once a day. Archimede Sant'Eustachio ristorante - can sit in or outside - they are efficient, professional and deliver a true gastronomical marriage of wonderful dishes.

There are many kinds of gelaterias - not all are created equal with fresh ingredients. One of the best right by the Pantheon is : Cremeria Monteforte.

Pat and Lisa of Italy Perfect: They are nothing short of amazing! These gals were our ticket to ride in terms of ideas, organizational skills, and the amazing packet of information and time saving tips. They recommened a driver from the train station that was the best - on time and a good driver.Pat and Lisa answered every email I sent them - and quickly. When our flight got canceled going to Italy, they intervened to let the host and driver know immediately. They did so many other things to make our stay just wonderful - everyone should have a Pat and Lisa before departing anywhere!

Tip: Don't miss hanging out at Piazza Navona in the evening with all the artists, musicians & all kinds of things going on. It's a treat.
