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
Why Vera chose Centro Storico
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 (15 meters from the apartment), colourful markets, designer stores, boutiques, restaurants (10 meters from the apartment), typical Italian cafes and wine bars (10 meters from the apartment),..
What makes this Apartment unique
The apartment is right in the historic centre of Rome and from here you can walk to every important interesting point without public transport. However the apartment is very conveniently connected to any city landmark and to Airport by fast and efficient public transportation ( both buses and subway ) and you will enjoy the real Italian style everyday life. Upon request you can book a transfer from and for Fiumicino or Ciampino airports with our chauffeur driven transfer. You can request the service by sending us an e-mail including your flight details. Fantastic location for an unforgettable holiday in Rome! The entire apartment is for your own use.

Great apartment in the heart of Rome
The property manager was communicative and helpful. She suggested travel and digital app methodologies that would make our visit more successful. She had a book of all sorts of information that would help us make decisions during our stay.
The apartment was spacious and had all the amenities listed. It was located (by walking) 2 minutes from major bus/tram lines, 10 minutes from the metro, and 20 minutes from the Coliseum, Forum, and Circus Maximus. In 2019, it was about 12 Euro from the main train station by taxi. It was a 2 minute walk to the Tiber River.
There was a great bread/pastry store next door, and after 7, a wonderful restaurant next door for easy access to food. There was a supermarket and a pharmacy about 7 minutes away.
From here, I took public transport to Campo d' Fiori, Palazzo Farnese, Piazza Navono, Trevi Fountain, Pantheon, Spanish Steps, Coliseum, Forum, Circus Maximus, Vatican Museum, St. Peters Basilica and Sistine Chapel, Borghese Collection.
Great people, great location, great space.
Review of 169 Marmorata- Testaccio, Centro Storico
We had a really good experience with our appartement. The owner Vera was very helpful and check in was very easy and smooth.
The apartment is very centrally located within walking distance of restaurants, grocery store and a lovely local market. The tram and bus are across the street to take one to places like the Coliseum, the Pantheon or any major attraction.
I really appreciated that Vera had supplied a fresh package of coffee, yoghurt and juice. That was a very nice touch. We used the washing machine a few times and it was excellent and Vera supplied detergent.
Another thing that I loved about this apartment was the beautiful courtyard - a little oasis of calm. We loved opening the windows and looking out at the flowers in full bloom.
This place was very quaint. We had no problems with our stay. Vera was very nice and explained everything to us. The restaurant recommendations were great too. The bed is especially comfortable.
Clean, well maintained, and good location.
Property is well maintained, clean and in a good location well within walking distance to Center of Rome. Outside of tourist areas provided an opportunity to dine with people from the neighbourhood.
A lovely spacious apartment
This ground floor apartment is off a central courtyard of an apartment block so is really quiet. It's well laid out and tastefully decorated. The bed, while large, is not a full American King. The kitchen is well equipped. We were met on arrival and the owner successfully arranged a car for our departure to the airport. The advertising is a tad deceptive. It is about a half hour walk or fifteen minute bus to any of the tourist sites one might be considering in central Rome. That said, this Testaccio area to the south of the center is an interesting place to be based and we would come back just to explore the area more fully. There is great coffee right next door and a nearby (nine minute walk) daily market offers all kinds of food products - fish, meat, cheese, wine, etc.etc. in dozens of stalls. There are nightclubs and well-recommended restaurants nearby also.
So nice, clean and comfortable!
This is the perfect home to stay in while in Rome. The pictures do not do it justice. It is nice and roomy and sparkling clean. You can tell the owner takes pride in the home. The queen bed is very comfortable, the bathroom is a good size and the shower has great water pressure. Vera was great at communicating with us and very accommodating when we arrived early. She has a detailed book for everything you need to know in regards to house as well as great information about the surrounding area. The Neighborhood is packed with good restaurants to choose from and you can walk to all. Very family friendly neighborhood. It is a approximately a 20 minute walk to the colosseum. Very scenic. We will return and look forward to staying here again
