Rione XIV Borgo Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

R'HOME SWEET R'HOME: Stay in a fabulous apartment in one of Rome’s oldest neighborhoods, a few steps from St. Peter’s Basilica!

This accommodation combines the best that Rome has to offer: a recently renovated, light and comfortable apartment located in one of the city’s most historic quarters. The neighborhood, Rione Borgo, has cobblestone streets, artisans' workshops, neighborhood cafés and local trattorie.

It is within walking distance of the city’s major attractions, including the Vatican Museums, the Sistine Chapel, Castel Sant’Angelo, Piazza Navona, the Spanish Steps, the Trevi Fountain and the Piazza Campo de’ Fiori.

This ground-floor apartment is typical of this ancient district of Rome and it is elegantly furnished with modern fixtures. It has its own entry-way, a spacious living room with chimney (including a twin-size sofa bed and an ottoman bed), a kitchenette, a well-appointed bathroom and a master bedroom with original, Renaissance-era brick work.

The thick, Renaissance-era masonry provides cool relief from the summer heat.

Additional details: fully fitted kitchen with fridge, microwave oven and kettle; bathroom with bath tub/shower, dryer; TV; washing machine; boiler for independent heating; crib and high chair for younger children; Internet Wi-Fi; DVD reader and Video Library of 30 movies in English.

The apartment is easily accessible with public transportation, including tram, subway and bus. There are several nearby taxi stands and bicycles and scooters are available for rent. The nearby San Pietro train station has regular service to the Fiumicino airport and to the beach. There is even a taxi-boat service along the Tiber.

Guided tours available on request.

We would be happy to answer any other questions you might have.

About The Owner

Roberta and Alessandro will do their best to make your stay unforgettable!

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2010

What makes this apartment unique

You are inside the history! The building where the apartment is located was built a few years after the discovery of America. Some walls of the house were built using 2000 years old Roman amphorae! All the walls of the apartment are been fully restored and the amphorae are still clearly visible.

Amazing hosts and location!

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our 6 nights in Rome. Alex and Roberta welcomed us and provided thorough information for us to easily find our way around the amazing city. We toured and/or walked past St Peter's Basilica and the Vatican each day. We had easy access to the metro to farther points in the city. Our hosts communicated so well that we never felt lost or unable to find our way home. We cooked in one night but found that there were many fantastic restaurants within a few blocks or walking distance. Although we were in a very popular location in high season we didn't hear any of the noise outside at night. We loved this location for our family of 3 and will definitely stay here if it is available for our next visit to Rome. I would highly recommend this location and our wonderful hosts to family and friends or anyone visiting Rome. Thank you Alex and Roberta for making our Rome experience so fabulous.

Wonderful Home - Wonderful Hosts

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent 6 terrific days in Roberta and Alessandro's apartment. They were great hosts whose apartment was very welcoming and their attention to detail was superb. We loved the neighborhood and got to experience a little of what it is like to live as a Roman. We loved the location and were able to walk to all the sites in the historic center of the city. We look forward to a return visit someday.

Magnifique voyage!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour dans l'appartement d'Alessandro et Roberta situé à 2 minutes de St Pierre.

L'appartement très bien décoré et entretenu est idéalement placé pour accéder aux différents sites touristiques de la ville.

Alessandro qui parle très bien français et Roberta sont très attentionnés et chaleureux. L'appartement est pourvu de tout le nécessaire et les propriétaires savent ajouter les détails qui rendent le séjour encore plus agréable.

Nous recommandons vivement cette location et espérons y revenir.

Alessandro et Roberta, merci encore pour tout...

Ahh Roma!

  • 5 of 5

My 21 yr. old daughter and I visited Rome for the first time. Roberta and Alessandro are the perfect hosts, from the first correspondence by email to the one this morning checking that we got back home safely, they arranged a lovely holiday. The apartment is in a perfect location, you walk out the door and are at the Vatican in 3 minutes, 5 if you stop for an espresso! We walked to the Spanish steps, the Pantheon, the Colosseum.....every where.

The accommodations are perfect, comfortable bed, hot shower, plus everything you need in a home away from home,(we own a vacation rental ourselves so we know what it takes.) Fresh flowers and a few special dietary items I needed were exception touches.

I must give at least one recommendation for our favorite restaurant, Sorpasso on Via Properzio 31 we had lunch there twice and were amazed by the eggplant parm. and an memorable trapizzino filled with an delicious Rosemary chicken. Gelato, pizza and espresso, I miss you already!

I highly recommend this apartment, not only for location, but because Roberta and Alex make sure every detail is perfect! We especially appreciated their driver taking us to and from the airport.
