Lupa Flat is a luxury and typical apartment located in Via della Lupa (can accomodate a maximum of 4 people), few minutes away from the Spanish Steps and Piazza Navona. The recently renewed apartment is on the ground floor of a noble building dating back to 1760, and has been created by the Marquis Giambattista Collicola Monthioni, a great appreciator of the fine arts, Governor of Spoleto and Major Messenger of the Holy Apostolic Palaces.
In the backyard you can find an old fountain, built by the famous architect Bernini. It’s made up of a living room with sofa bed and dining corner, a double bedroom with decorated ceilings, fully equipped kitchen, bathroom with shower. It is provided with Internet connection and wireless connection, Tv, Hi-Fi Radio. The “Cotto” flooring, the vaulted ceiling, a both modern and antique furniture of great quality and valuable tapestry together with the ideal location make this elegant apartment one of a kind.
The only thing better than being on a beautiful street of Ethernal City is being there while the setting sun hits the marbles of ancient Rome
The Owner purchased this apartment in 2007
From the very first time I stepped foot on Rome 23 years ago, I have felt more at home on this city than I have anyplace else in the world. There is so much natural beauty here that I'm still amazed every time I turn a corner and catch a glimpse of that beautiful city. I love the churches, the streets, the squares, the people, the restaurants but especially the peace, joy, and serenity I feel whenever I'm here.
Hands down, Lupa flat is in one of the best places on the whole world. I love stumbling out of bed in the morning, grabbing a cup of coffee, and waking up while sitting at a cafè watching the world go by on the square in front of me, seeing the incredible monuments, watching the colorful people and trying to decide which of the beautiful areas we'll go to today. I love the location of Lupa flat, I can be to all my favorite cafès or restaurants or stores in 2-5 minutes or so.
When I made this booking almost a year ago, I asked if the flat was accessible by wheelchair. I was told it was on the bottom floor and it was no problem. I contacted the "manager" of the flat 2 months prior to my visit again reminding them of the wheelchair.
When my driver delivered me to the address, the door was blocked by garbage bins and could not open wide enough to get into the building. So at the last minute I had to pay an additional fee to the driver to take me somewhere else...and stay somewhere that cost me more than double what I had anticipated I would pay.
The only thing this manager offered to do was to give me my money back....well, no duh of course I'm getting my money back..::but what about the bank fees to pay from America to Italy, the extra cost for my driver, the extra cost to stay in a hotel and the $30 a day I had to pay to get transportation from my out of the way hotel to see the Roman sites? I was offered nothing! Which in my eyes makes this owner a BAD person to rent from!
We'd give the Lupa flat six stars for location. We were able to walk to everything and only needed a taxi on arrival and departure.
Sergio and Nicole were very helpful.
The kitchen is pretty tiny and limited for cooking at home, but there are so many great places to eat nearby, it wasn't a problem for us.
I'd recommend the taxi on arrival as the street and apartment door are difficult to find the first time, especially in the dark.
We would be very happy to stay there again.
We spent two weeks here. The flat is small but well-appointed and very convenient. We walked to almost everything, and when we needed to take the Metro, the Spagna station is just a short walk (8 minutes) away. There's a supermarket and several bancomats nearby. We ate at many neighborhood restaurants and never had a bad meal. We took advantage of some of the extras: airport pickup and drop-off was convenient and well worth it. The welcome basket provided us with lunches for the whole first week. After walking all day, we were grateful not to have to climb stairs to get home! Thanks Sergio, Valentina, and Ncola for a wonderful stay in Roma!
I stayed at the Lupa Flat for 31 days while I was doing a study abroad program in Rome. I'm a non-traditional student so I wasn't interested in student housing. This was my first trip to Europe so everything was new and different. I was greeted by Daniela who was warm and welcoming. She helped me with all my questions. Let me warn you, if you've never been to Rome, nothing is as it seems it should be........it's part of the charm. Go out and get lost, trust me you will.
The apartment manager Nicola was outstanding. She was so kind and very responsive. I must say, she really went above and beyond. Thank you Nicola! The apartment owners were also very helpful and gracious. Take advantage of some of the "add on" services they offer. I used the airport shuttle roundtrip and it was well worth it.
You are moments from the Spanish Steps, Pasquale's for pizza, a great coffee shop, Via Tomacelli, Via Della Scrofa and Via Del Corso are also very close by. The bus stop and taxi stand is literally 6 blocks away (only take white taxi's; the others are a scam). You also have 2 of the best gelato places very close to you Gelatini and Grom. I prefer Grom but to each their own:)
The apartment is the perfect home base. The kitchen has everything you need to make a quick meal. They provide you with a Nespresso machine and if you've never tried it I STRONGLY encourage you to do so. Very nice extra to have in the flat. You can buy capsules at the Nespresso boutique near the Spanish Steps. The shower worked great; I never ran out of hot water. Apartment is quiet for a large city. As the description clearly states there is only a washer and not a dryer. Also no microwave but a handy little toaster over.
The flat is in an excellent location. Great neighborhood and I always felt very safe. I was there by myself and didn't feel like I had to worry.
Excellent staff, outstanding location, and an amazing city! Thank you for everything. I will be back next year in Settembre and will definitely be staying with you again!
We spent 5 delightful days in this exceptionally conveniently located apartment. we were met exactly as we had been told, oriented thoroughly and efficiently to the apartment, and provided with plenty of emergency support. The apartment was everything and more than we had expected--very well equipped with many comforts such as an easy espresso machine and extra pillows, and delightfully quirky. The location couldn't have been better. We literally walked to every place we wanted to visit including the Vatican, the Coloseum, the Spanish Steps (every evening!), the Borghese gardens and museum. There were excellent restaurants and cafes all around us. We felt like citizens of the city--it was lovely.
Well located - walking distance to most sights, shopping and dining. Very quiet and has all the
Amenities needed for a great stay. A bottle of wine and snacks were waiting for us on arrival. Valentina met us at the flat where A bottle of wine and snacks were waiting.
We would recommend the flat.
