About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + living room, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-5) in the historic center

Exclusive apartment in the heart of Rome just a stones throw away from the Coliseum, Roman Forum, Mouth of Truth, and all the major important historical sites.

The property is within walking distance to Piazza Navona, Fontana di Trevi, Spanish Steps, Pantheon, Campo dei Fiori and across the Tiber river to enchanting Trastevere, famous for its narrow streets and cozy restaurants.

The location simply could not be better as the area is one of the most famous and picturesque of the historical center, surrounded by archaeological sites, artisan and antique shops, theatres, traditional bakeries, colourful markets, designer stores, boutiques, restaurants, typical Italian cafes and winebars where you can flip away your tiredness over a good glass of wine.

Only a couple of blocks away, there is a colorful, large open market and every morning can be found fine food, fresh produce, fruit, vegetables, wine, cheese and wonderful bread.

The apartment has been newly renovated to offer elegance, comfort and convenience to the most desirable attractions of the city center.

The property is on the first floor of a 19th century historic building. After a day's sightseeing in the noise of a busy city, this is a great place to come home to. Walking through the main doors (off the street) into a lush garden full of trees and flowers, is such a pleasant surprise. Coming back here, in this oasis sheltered from the hustle and bustle, at the end of a long day gives you an instant sense of peace. The quiet found inside is unusual for this lively section of Rome. During the day, a security guard is present by the front gate. In addition to the gate (locked after dark), there are locked doors for both the complex and the apartment.

Fully renewed, it is tastefully furnished with fine modern fittings and the same remarkable equipment. Elegantly appointed with artistic and decorative features as beautiful pictures and mirrors, exclusive tapestries, cozy sofas, modern sliding doors, lamps, large wooden walk-in wardrobe.

The apartment has a very warm atmosphere. It has an entrance that leads to a bright living-room, a dining area with american kitchen, the bedroom, the bathroom and walk-in wardrobe. The sofa is a comfortable sofa-bed (King size, excellent quality), there is also a single bed. The kitchen has all modern fittings and it is fully equipped with all necessary cooking supplies.

The apartment has every comforts: air conditioned, autonomous heating, Satellite TV, flatscreen TV, FREE WIFI internet, washing machine, telephone, safety box, radio, iron/ironing board, hair dryer, Bed linen and blankets, bath towels and table linen provided.

Just a few meters from the property you'll find the famous mediaeval basilica church Santa Maria in Cosmedin (or de Schola Graeca). The church was built in the 6th century over the remains of the Templum Herculis Pompeiani in the Forum Boarium and Its bell tower is the tallest medieval belfry in Rome. In the porch of this mediaeval Church, on the south side, there is one of Rome's symbols, the so-called 'Bocca della Verita' Mouth of Truth that draws many visitors: this is a large round stone, with a grotesque face in relief with holes through the eyes and the nose, and a larger opening for the mouth.

While in Rome you may like to re-enact the scene in the film Roman Holiday and put your hand over the Bocca della Verità or Mouth of Truth which hangs in the portico of the Church of Santa Maria in Cosmedin.If a jealous lover wanted to test their partner’s fidelity, they would put their hand in the mouth of the stone river god - it was thought that a liar would have his hand bitten off but the faithful lover would go untouched.

And this 'test' is still a must for all tourists and the queue of visitors stretched right down the street, for to have their photo taken with their hand in the mouth of the statue.

It’s a fun thing to do though and everyone seemed to emerge with their arm intact - why not give it a try?

About Vera

Italy is a country full of glittering treasures and Rome is its brightest jewels. I am delighted to be able to offer a comfortable and beautiful ambiance to my guests. Every amenity and comfort is well thought out and we make sure that the apartment is clean and in excellent condition at all times. I take pride in meeting the needs of my traveling friends while helping to make their stay in Rome a memorable one. It is important to me to put the needs and comfort of my guests first and I am honored to say that this is gratefully reflected back to me through referrals and returning guests. My apartment is truly a 'home away from home'.

Vera purchased this apartment in 2000

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I and our 13 year old daughter stayed here for 5 days in september 2010. We found the flat really delightful, beautifully appointed and equipped, quiet and close to everything. It was very clean and well maintained, the beds were comfy and the kitchen well equipped. It was also great to have Wi-fi internet and a washing machine! We highly recommend this apartment to anyone visiting Rome.

Great location for Family!!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 including two kids absolutely loved this gem of a flat in Rome. Veruska thinks of everything to make his place perfect in every way. The location is perfect for touring. So close to the main attractions and the metro with lots of great local cafes. There are also plenty of restaurants in the area ranging from pizza or quick meals to an exquisite dinner. At the end of the block there is an excellent bakery that serves Continental breakfasts. There is also a park around the corner for the 4 and 7 years old to play and for us to have lunch outside. Everything in the home is top quality from the most comfortable bed and pullout couch to the linens and appliances. Veruska was the perfect host and we were so glad we chose to have the chauffeur pick us up at the airport. We hope we can return again.

Fabulous holiday in the heart of Rome!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a week at Veruska's condo and found it to be beautifully furnished, absolutely clean, and very comfortable. In fact, the bed was the most comfortable bed we slept in during our stay in Italy! In addition, the neighborhood offers many nice restaurants and wine bars within convenient walking distance. Veruska was so helpful in many ways....including helping us find the right place to check in for our flight home (we found the Rome airport to be very confusing). Veruska has put together a big resource binder for guests that we used several times while staying there. I highly recommend this apartment. I would certainly come back and stay here again in my future travels. Thank you, Veruska, for making our stay safe and memorable.

Excellent location, beautiful apartment, everything you need

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to call home for our 6 days in Rome. The apartment was cosy and had all we needed (toilet paper, dish soap, other necessities). After our apartment in Florence, which offered a single saucepan as its cooking supplies, I was thrilled to find a really well-stocked kitchen with plenty of plates, pots, pans, and also staples, like olive oil and salt.

The location is great and you can walk to anywhere you want. Nearly everything you want to see in Rome is within easy walking distance: the Colosseum, Pantheon, the Spanish Steps, all just minutes away.The apartment is located in a comfortable, extremely safe neighborhood populated with cafes, restaurants and shops. The owner was very helpful in any way we needed and let us store our luggage all day on Sunday. I would recommend this apartment to anyone, and will make every effort to stay there again when I return to the magical world of Rome. Thanks for a wonderful stay!

Perfect family spot in Rome!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 6 nights at this fantastic apartment.This is the perfect place to explore Rome and surroundings. The flat has a modern architecture, a fully equipped kitchen, good shower, led tv, high speed internet, air conditioning and we loved the mattress that is new and extremely comfortable.

The flat is very clean, quiet, secure and it is a cosy retreat after a day of sightseeing.

The location is excellent and you can get everywhere very quickly.

The booking of the flat was very simple with a direct and pleasant communication with the owner, Mrs Veruska. We received a very warm welcome and the owners where very helpfull to show us the places to visit and the nicest restaurants. They are perfect hosts, committed to their guests.

Only a couple of blocks away, there is a very colorful large in-door market, the best place to buy food in the area. Every morning you can buy vegetables, fruit, magnificent bread, cheese and cured meat.. We had a great time here and we would highly recommend this place, we surely will come back! We very much hope to return again soon.

Great location but......

  • 2 of 5

Nice apartment, perfectly located, within walking distance of many attractions. Across the street from Tastevere and 10-15 minutes walk to metro. With three nights left to our stay we found bugs in the bed and got bitten. Had to take a hotel room plus the other expenses. Manager came , could not or would not help. Got in touch with the owner the day after, she would not refund the 3 remaining nights. Filed a complaint to Home Away customer service without result

Owner's Response: My property is advertised from 2001and It is my habitude to change the mattress every four years. That's because I always want to offer my guests the best comfort and cleaning infact no one EVER complained about the bed or problem relatives this. This is verifiable by reading hundreds of reviews received on airbnb, vrbo and on other sites where my apartment is listed. All the guests confirm that the beds in the apartment are all comfortable, clean and of high quality. This guests, Alain, rented the property for 9 nights and at seventh nights they contact me with a singular problem. Immediately my assistant went to the apartment to see what was the trouble. There was absolutely nothing. Nothing on the bed and nothing anywhere else in the house. The same day I'm gone to the apartment with staff employed, and specialized in disinfestation and they did not find absolutely nothing. This has been certified by them ! Anyway, I have replaced the mattress present in the master bedroom with a mattress of top quality "MEMORY FOAM" that adapts perfectly to the contour of the body to give personalized support. I made this choice to offer my guests the highest quality and an extra 5-star comfort.

the appartment is in a satisfactory conditions, basic services work well

  • 3 of 5

The depa is in a satisfactory condition, however the pictures have raised my expectation and it couldnt live up with those expectations, e.g. carpet and small white couch table were not present, also a lot of stuff were there in the locker room and it didnt give a nice and clean impression you might have when looking at the pictures. Also the building is not in a good condition , not well maintained and again the picture does not show the reality.

Despite of the above, for the extra stars in the evaluation, I would have also expected a folder of basic touristic sightseeing, tips of restaurants and special deals and how to move around the and dont basically.

Otherwise appartment was functional and clean and all basic services worked correctly, Internet, garbage service and lockers.

Towels and toilet paper were provided.

Shower holder were loose should be maintained.
