Overview

Rome Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-7)

A spacious, comfortable, secure apartment well situated on the fourth floor of an elegant 19th century building with elevator at Via Vittoria Colonna:

We are located at 900 meters from the Spanish steps.

Only a 7/8 minute walk to the Spanish Steps, 10 minutes to Piazza Navona, and 15 minutes to Saint Peter's Cathedral & the Vatican Museum. From this location, the most important historical sights of the Eternal City can be reached very quickly like Trevi Fountain or Saint Angel Castle! And if you don't want to walk you can arrive to Saint Peter's by bus #87 or Colossuem by bus #81 (the bus stop is just in front of our building!)

Search the address on the web and you'll be able to see its excellent location.

The apartment was recently completely renovated. Everything is new and neat, and as you can see from the pictures, it’s very modern, with high quality furnishings. This is a 2 bed rooms apartment: one master suite with en suite bathroom and a smaller bedroom with 2 single beds that can turn into a queen size bed with a second bath. Both rooms have high quality mattresses!

There is also a lovely and spacious living room with a double sofa bed, a dining area and separate kitchen! The kitchen is fully equipped with a dishwasher, washing machine, American coffee maker, kettle, gas stove with oven, fridge/freezer unit, as well as all the other necessary appliances like, iron and ironing board!

The apartment has air conditioning in both rooms and in the living room (daikin emura mini splits, great quality and functioning), parquet floors, iphone-ipod stereo, LCD TV/Sat to watch international tv channels in every room. ADSL & Wi-Fi internet connection keeps you in touch with the world, last but not the least we provide a pc and a printer to let you print boarding passes or tickets for museums or simply surf the web! and a land line to received phone calls from your beloved and to make locals and national phone calls!

Of course, since it’s in a delightful central neighborhood, it is well connected to public transportation to go everywhere and it is well served by a variety of local cafes, great restaurants, supermarkets, and delicatessens / convenience stores. There is a welcoming Italian café for breakfast or lunch only a few steps from the building, by the way: this neighborhood is the safest in Rome!

The apartment has only one key for the main front door and the apartment itself has no keys - only digit codes so that you don't have to worry about losing the keys.

The treatment's friendly and helpful and I’m always trying to make sure my guests have the best experience in Rome. If you want more information, feel free to read the feedback from previous guests that stayed in my apartments (see the comments on listings #247364, 362568, 359819).

We accept payments on-line with credit card on our web site and we provide assistance with drivers and tour companies!

I welcome your inquiries and questions and will respond within one business day.

every guest after the 4th pays an additional rate of 30 euros daily.

for runners: you can run at saint angel castle park or near the tiber or just inside the city center

for families: just inside the castle you have a lovely playground for your children if you want to relax with them!

we can also organize tours (you are welcomed to ask as you book the apartment, and book a tour before your arrival. it is hard to book at arrival since my american guide is very busy!)

This is a self catering apartment. you will find basic toilet paper, hand soap,

for every additional need u can find all that u need at the supermarket

About Silvio Spicacci Minervini

i am 40 and got married july 2012!

i really love meeting my guests, even though because we have about 2000 guests every year, i am not able sometimes to meet everybody, but keep in touch regulary though land line phone or email.

my family and i have started this turistic company, in the summer 2013 we will have 5 owned apartments and we plan to have 8/9 apts in 2014.

it is a big effort and now it has become my full time job.

Silvio Spicacci Minervini purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Silvio Spicacci Minervini chose Rome

because it is the perfect area. it can be reached by car as no traffic block, and from there u can arrive anywhere in the city

it is incredible silent, which is a plus in roma, and the air conditioning is really excellent.

plus there is an elevator!

great restaurants nearby: you have to try splendor or la barchetta restaurants!

really excellent!!!!!

What makes this apartment unique

it's silence,you will sleep peacefully!!! compared to roman noise!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Normally the downside of an apartment is you are on your own for tips, recommendations etc. Silvio is, however, a great host and always available, even sending you emails during the stay to stay in touch. This apartment is roomy and spotless, but most of all it is quiet - a wonderful place to escape to after a hectic day in noisy Rome. I would certainly stay here again, and would recommend to friends and family.

Great apartment & great location!!!

  • 5 of 5

I rent this apartment with three cousins with whom I frequently travel. We loved our stay. The apartment is roomy , cute, and well maintained. While I did not meet Silivio in person he had Elena meet us to show us the ends and outs of the apartment. Over the course of our stay, he checked in regularly. The location is amazing in addition to being walker friendly, upon exiting the apartment the bus stop is right in front of the building. We would literally walk across the street to a cafe have a croissant and expresso then head out for a day of site seeing. I would defeintly stay here again.

Welcome Home in Rome!

  • 5 of 5

Our recent stay at Augustus Apartments, #362568, was a model for how this system should work. We definitely want to give kudos to Silvio for providing an accurate listing of the space but for the time and effort made to prepare us for a great stay in late May of 2016! All questions we had about the process were promptly answered and that was before we had committed to the space!!

We were traveling with good friends and they were very impressed with the space being exactly as described and such a great location to get to so many different areas of Rome. Again, the credit has to go to Silvio as he has prepared a number of videos that help you master all appliances in the apartment,(yes, I had to watch the TV video again as I didn't follow instructions well!!) as well as navigating in and around the area with suggestions on local transportation, restaurants and sites to visit.

It was our first experience with this process and we were in a word, spoiled. Our later experience at another property prompted us to recommend to the owner to contact Silvio to learn how to run his property!!

Thanks again Silvio and all the assistance you provided to make our visit an experience that we will remember for many years. Your facility will be one we recommend freely and often!!

Excellent location, lovely, clean apartment.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this little apartment for two nights with another couple while visiting Rome. It is in an excellent location, within walking distance to everything. The bus is directly outside the door and very easy to navigate if there are further locations you are interested in. The apartment is well equipped and very clean. The owner provided excellent, timely communication and was very helpful in setting up transportation to and from the airport in addition to letting us safely store our luggage until check in. All of the information left in the apartment was helpful, particularly the restaurant recommendations, which were all excellent.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

Spacious and relatively clean apartment. Comfortable beds. Silvio was nice enough to let us arrive early so we could get to our tour on time. Pretty quiet neighbourhood compared to other areas of Rome which was much appreciated. Close walking distance to most major sites with bus stops right in front of the apartment. Having an elevator is awesome. Thanks for a nice stay in Rome.

ps: so sorry about not receiving your emails Silvio until I returned back to Canada.
