A sailboat on the rooftops of the Eternal City

Bedrooms 1
Property type studio
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

The studio is really small (about 10 with just the room for a double bed, a small kitchenette, a tiny bathroom with low ceiling where the shower water goes all over the place.

The real value of the place is the terrace on two levels which allows a stunning view of the historical center of Rome to 360°.

From S. Peter, to the Pantheon, to the Vittoriano at Piazza Venezia, the surrounding rooftops and down into the ruins of Largo Torre Argentina where Julius Cesar was killed.

Inside the apartment, the view of the Vittoriano looks like a painting on the wall.

You can reach by feet almost every spot of your interest.

A final info: the elevator reaches the 5th floor then you have to climb one more flight of stairs to reach the apartment.

Perfect location, unbelievable view.

You won't find a more private room with a more panoramic view of Rome. Beautiful.

The two terraces have million dollar views. It's too bad no one is taking care of the plants so it would be prettier up there. The small flat needs attention. A thorough scrubbing is in order. The tv doesn't work, internet is time limited, the electric tea pot doesn't work, the hot water heater makes noise constantly. I had to contact the owner, Giorgio, with a question about the internet and he was quick to help. The location is very good, grocer nearby as well as restaurants. Very close to Campo dei Fiori and Piazza Navona. Wanted this place to be better as I was going to rent again, but sadly, that will not be the case.

Owner's Response: First of all I am sorry for every discomfort suffered by our guests. I went to check the studio after your leave and find that the automatic irrigation system did not work and it was a great disappointment for me too, because I had bought all new flowers ... As for the other discomforts, we will check and fix all the problems reported. We are committed to improve our guest comfort and we can do it only with your suggestions. Thank you

Stay @ Giorgio's!

  • 4 of 5

Arrival at the apartment was quite convenient from the train station. Bus/trolley/taxi all run close to the apartment. Apartment within 20 minute walking distance from train station, Piazza Navona and all attractions. Apartment was adequate, as it is very small, but you are staying for the view which was spectacular. Market, gelato, restaurants all convenient near by. A few suggestions for your future guests ~ food take-out is common but on the occasion you'd like to eat in, appliances of a multiple cup coffee pot and a small toaster oven would be helpful to eat-in. It is a shame that a small BBQ was not available as the idea of cooking al fresco on the terrace with the amazing view would round out the stay. Thanks to Giorgio for his quick responses to emails and requests. Overall, we'd stay there again.

Loved the terraces

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I greatly enjoyed the two large private terraces, and the very convenient location of this apartment. The bed was also very comfortable, and the kitchenette very convenient (the coldest refrigerator on our month-long trip!), and the fast Wi-Fi very much appreciated. Yes, the interior living space is quite small, including the bathroom, but we thought these were minor inconveniences compared to bringing our wine and meals to the terraces to enjoy the panoramic views of sunrise and sunset over Centro Storico Roma.

There was a little mix up on our check in, with some confusion over the time of check in, and the servicing of the apartment from the prior guests, but we were assured this was a one-time event, and everything went very smoothly after that.

We really enjoyed the neighborhood. There is a wonderful gelato shop just next door, a very convenient supermarket just around the next corner, and a cafe/bar for coffee and delicious pastries two doors down. The river and the Trastevere area is a short 5-minute walk away, and there is a bicycle rental nearby. We rented bikes, rode along the Tiber River, then stopped in the Trastevere for lunch. We enjoy craft beer as well as wine, and there is an excellent beer brewery/pub about 5 minutes' walk. There are excellent artisan leather shops and craftsman shops nearby. We also walked as far as the Spanish Steps and the Colosseum from the apartment, each about a 20- to 30 minutes' walk.

There are several bus and tram stops nearby, making access to the Vatican Museum easy. Some trams did vibrate the building, but this is a big city, so we thought it was no different from New York or other big cities we have visited.

Owner's Response: I want to apologize for all the discomfort suffered at the check in it could happen as we don't leave nearby the studio. I also want to thank once more our lovely guests for being so understanding.

Stunning View

  • 4 of 5

The view is what this place is all about. Yes the shower situation isn't perfection, but it's fine. The real downside to it is that the hot water runs out quickly. The other negative we ran into was that we were freezing. We stayed there in January and were very cold at night. A space heater and extra blankets would have been appreciated. Bed was comfortable. Giorgio was a great host and replied to emails promptly. We really appreciated that he allowed us to have a late check out. I definitely recommend staying here for the view.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, actually I know my little studio is not very suitable for the winter season, above all we had an unconventional cold this year in Rome. We will treasure the suggestions regarding blankets and space heater. The advice of our guests is always useful for improving the service. Thanks again and hope to see you soon, maybe in the spring or summer when the terrace gives the best of himself. Giorgio
