About Brigitte

I am austrian but I live since a long time in Rome. The apartment is my own and I will be happy to help you to plan your stay in Rome

Why Brigitte chose Centro Storico

the location of this apartment is outstanding. more central is not possible. although you are in the very centre of Rome, it is a very quiet apartment, as Via Frattina is in the pedestrian zone and is a famous shopping street, what means that at 8pm all the shops are closed.

What makes this apartment unique

the apartment has a very special flair in a 300 years old building.

Our amazing stay in Rome at Via Frattina 41

  • 5 of 5

We stayed five amazing days and nights in the heart of Rome at Brigitte and Giorgio's flat. What a wonderful experience to stay in this historic and comfortable apartment, surrounded by history, art, beautiful buildings and, or course, great restaurants and shopping. We were so grateful to Giorgio for taking us one morning on a private tour of historic places - churches, architecture, important works of art - all within 15 minutes of the flat. We had the time of our lives.

We recommend this marvelous home away from home to anyone who wants to enjoy Rome and we intend to come back again ourselves on our next trip to Italy.

Thank you, Brigitte and Giorgia for our Roman Holiday!

A clean, well-kept flat with all the necessities for a pair of tourists on the go.

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with this lodging. The apartment had everything we needed for our five-day visit in Rome. The bedroom was spacious, but very comfortable. There was room for our luggage and even hangers for our dress clothes. The terrace was beautiful and a perfect place for an evening glass of vino. The shower was big, the bathroom was very clean and they even had a hair dryer and towels ready for our arrival. The kitchenette was fully stocked with pots and pans if we had decided to try cooking ourselves, but we were enamored by the many nearby restaurants. The location was perfect for us, a short walk from all the main tourist attractions, including the Spanish Steps, the Borghese Gardens, Trevi Fountain and the Pantheon. The flat was stocked with maps that we were able to use as well.

The hosts Giorgio and Brigitte were very accommodating, meeting us at the apartment when we arrived via a transport from the airport that they helped to set up. Giorgio, a native Roman, took us on an incredible tour by car through nearly every part of the city, taking us off the beaten path to show us some of Rome's hidden treasures.

Overall we were very pleased and would recommend this accommodation to any couple visiting the city.

A charming, quiet and well appointed oasis in the heart of old Rome.

  • 5 of 5

We were welcomed by Brigitte and Giorgio into their cool and quiet Roman home. They explained everything about the home and surrounding area as well as the location of the great organic grocery store. The next morning, Giorgio guided us on a walk through the heart of Rome with detailed information about the sights. It was wonderful introduction for us first time visitors. Even though we were very close to historic sites, the home is on a pedestrian shopping street with shop after shop of beautiful contemporary apparel. I can't say enough great things about our hosts. They were so helpful, answering all our questions, suggesting good local restaurants and even arranging a transfer to the airport for the flight home. Thank you so much, Brigitte and Giorgio.

LOVED this apartment!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this wonderful apartment for one week in September, and it was amazing! The location was perfect, the apartment was spacious and impeccably clean, and we loved sitting out on the balcony. It was like a home away from home! Brigitte and Giorgio were the perfect hosts, and the arrangements that they made for us to get to/from the airport were very much appreciated. We would definitely stay here again if we ever return to Rome...we were 100% satisfied with everything!

Fantastic Location, Great Service

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently spent 4 nights in this apartment during our 2 week trip to Italy. The apartment exceeded our expectations. The location couldn't be better for walking to all the great attractions in Rome. The neighbourhood is beautiful, and there are many great restaurants in the vicinity. The apartment itself was impeccably clean and wi-fi was available for an additional 10 euros. Although the bedroom window faces Via Frattina, all noise was blocked when the window was closed. Brigitte and Giorgio were great to deal with, and assisted us with transfers to the airport and area information.

This apartment has a fascinating and outstanding location - just behind the Spanish steps. Via Frattina is located in the pedestrian zone and is one of the most famous shopping streets in the world - the famous Caffé Greco, the bar where the German writer spent many hours, is also just there. Here you can find many different shops, whatever you wish. Nearby you can find also an open air market and a nice supermarket and just in front of the famous hotel D'Inghilterra, where very famous people live during their roman stay. All the most important sight-seeing places can be reached by foot, but if you prefer to use the public transportations they are just behind the apartment. The metro-station of Piazza di Spagna can be reached just in 5 walking minutes and behind the apartment you can find several bus-stations in Piazza San Silvestro.
