This is an offer for discerning guests who want a luxurious stay in a very well equipped apartment, in the center of Rome but not in the 'tourist only' area, near the main University, several other high level academic institutions and foreign consulates, with plenty of restaurants and shops, but none of the tourist traps! The main attractions are easily reached by public transportation. It is approx 900sqf, plus a 400sqf terrace which becomes a wonderful open air dining room. The living room has a large LCD TV set, (with SKY subscription) and DVD player; the kitchen is fully equipped and has a small breakfast table. There are two bathrooms, both remodeled. We also supply a computer with Internet connection, so you do not have to travel with your laptop and you can connect your smart phone! . Within 5 minutes walking distance you can find several restaurants, two excellent “rosticcerie” from where you can take home a 5 course meal for a fraction of the price in a restaurant. We provide a cellular phone with an Italian number to our guests.
There is more than Rome to see!: If you feel like travelling to see more towns or the countryside, there are many places worth a visit within 2 hours distance. About 1 mile from the apartment there is a train station (Stazione Tiburtina) and a Bus station (Piazzale Tiburtino) from where many lovely towns as Assisi, Spoleto, L'Aquila, Siena, Perugia, can be reached within a couple of hours. The main train station, Termini, is a 5 minutes subway ride ; from there you can, for example, take a train and reach in 25 minutes Frascati, in the heart of Castelli Romani, famous for its wine and restaurants.

We are a family of four, with two young daughters, and we had an absolutely lovely time staying at this apartment for three weeks in July 2014. It suited our family of four perfectly – adequate number of beds and space to spread out, plenty of hot water for showers, and a great kitchen to give us flexibility for times when we wanted to prepare our own meals. And it’s immaculately clean – which I rarely get the chance to say about any place we stay at. The location for us was perfect. Taxis are available very close by on April 21 street, and the metro is located maybe 10 minutes from the apartment. The metro, Bologna, is two stations removed from the main train station, Termini, so using the train for all our sights – near and far – was easy and convenient. Our favorite part of the apartment was the huge patio. You can enjoy the sun in the mornings while sipping coffee, or pull down the cover to be in the shade. The afternoon and evenings are completely in the shade, so we enjoyed reading, playing games or enjoying our own mix of hors d'oeuvres before venturing out for dinner. Speaking of dinner: we enjoyed local restaurants just as much as the restaurants in the touristy areas. This gave us a lot of flexibility and options with our schedule. We enjoyed being close to everything but appreciated being able to retreat to the apartment and get away from the crowds and noise. After wandering around very noisy streets late into the night, we were thankful we had our peaceful apartment that allowed us to get quiet, uninterrupted rest before the next busy day.
The most delightful part of the apartment was Ida and her family. One daughter, Paola, lives in the next apartment, and both she and Ida speak English perfectly. They helped us out by arranging a car upon arrival and departure, and they gave us great advice throughout the weeks when we had many, many questions about the best ways to get to different places. And if everything they did for us during our three-week stay weren’t enough, Paola bailed us out at the last minute when we locked our passports in the apartment as we were leaving for the airport. I won’t go into details, but her valiant efforts allowed us to get to the airport on time. This apartment is absolutely delightful and lovingly handled by this special family. We highly recommend this apartment for your Rome adventure – and beyond!
A Little Piece of Heaven on the TERRAzza
My husband and I rented this meticulous well-furnished apartment for eight nights. This bright, airy appartment was quite spacious for the two of us. We appreciated having two baths in the morning when we were scrambling to get out for an early start. We especially enjoyed our morning cappuccino at Agostini's just a short walk from the apartment. They make a terrific afternoon spritz as well. We purchased a 7-day transportation pass for the metro and busses which were located within walking distance. Ida was very helpful in the planning process. I was fortunate enough to speak with her by phone when she was visiting in the states. (No need to pack face clothes. Ida knows her American guests need full size wash clothes). She and her daughter Stefanie were both available to us once in Rome. All appliances were in great working order. The bed was very comfortable and the shower was very good. We made good use of the washer since we both traveled with only a carry on, The weather was beautiful so we able to dry clothes Roman style on our patio. Renting is the best way to experience the culture of this magnificent city. And to fully appreciate the culture we made a daily stop at Pico's for the best gelato in all Italy. Each day we looked forward to our return to this quiet haven away from all the hustle and bustle of the city center. I must say La Terrazza exceeded our expectations.
Nice, Quiet Neighborhood.
This apartment is within a kilometer of Bologna Station on the Rome Metro, near several grocery stores and is in a quiet location, which can be rare in Rome. The owner was most accommodating except for a slight problem with the A/C. We are a couple of retired folks who enjoyed the space and the 2 bathrooms. Terrace did not have the best views, but was a secluded space for an afternoon drink after a long day sightseeing. Recommended for any and all who want a nice, quiet place to stay.
Thank you for your review; I am sorry your stay was less than perfect because of the lack of air conditioning. Due to Italian energy regulations AC units in Lazio cannot be used before June, just as heating systems cannot be turned on before November; as your stay was at the beginning of May, the apartment was still in Winter mode (heating on, and down comforters on the beds). The temperature was indeed quite low, even for the season. Your request to activate the AC was therefore unexpected, though we did manage to activate the system for you the next day. I trust your stay was still enjoyable in our lovely city.
The perfect place to stay in Rome
For sure the description of the apartment was is right on the place is even better than the pictures. I would recommend this apartment to everyone and I have. I stayed 12 days in March 2014 I wish it could have been longer. This was my second trip to Italy it truly was wonderful thanks to Ida's apartment. The apartment was very comfortable the patio terrace was awesome we spent most of our time out there the weather was perfect. The apartment is roomy and modern you can get to anywhere you would want to go easily by bus or train. I do recommend the private car from and to the airport it is well worth the cost. Having the market next door very convenient also the larger markets close by also convenient. It really was a perfect place to relax after our busy days. I will be staying there again. I am already recommending it to friends and family. I can't thank you enough Ida for your care and attention to our needs. I hope to see you again soon. Thanks Pam from San Jose Ca
This property was amazing! We couldn't have picked a better place. It was spacious, nicely decorated and had an amazing terrace. Quick walk to the rail that took us everywhere we wanted to go. Ida was wonderful to work with and helped make our first trip to Italy fantastic.
MIGLIORE APPARTAMENTO IN ROMA!
My friends and I feel very fortunate to have found this gem of a place to stay in Rome! The apartment is spacious and comfortable with many amenities - - elevator, computer, modern kitchen and bathrooms, and of course la terrazza! The weather was perfect in mid-October; after full and tiring days of sightseeing, we could relax and enjoy this fabulous al fresco setting. The location of the apartment is ideal with a grocery store next door, a good restaurant across the street, a short walk to the Metro, and a quick train ride to the Termini station. The owner, Ida, responded to my initial inquiry immediately and to all our follow-up questions as well, and Paola, her daughter who lives across the hall, is the best concierge. We are especially grateful to all her efforts in returning an important item that was left behind. Grazie mille.
The apartment is located in the central Bologna-Nomentano neighborhood, ideal to easily reach within minutes all of the destinations of Rome, while being situated in an area particularly calm and quiet: 10 minutes by subway to Coliseum, 10 minutes by express bus to Piazza Venezia). In this neighborhood you will find many small shops, supermarkets and open-air markets. All these establishments are popular with the locals, not tourist traps! Start the morning jogging in the neighborhood park of Villa Torlonia, or with a visit to the catacombs of Saint Agnes or the Roman polychrome mosaics of Saint. Costanza, on the via Nomentana, all at short walking distance from the apartment. If you would like to feel like a real roman, this is the place for you! The owner lives in the same building, speaks English as a native, and will be happy to help and provide information.
