About the property

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.

Very nice apartment, large, convenient, good location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this apartment. Location was very good - within walking distance to the main attractions. The apartment itself is large and very nice. It was very convenient for family with 2 child - 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a big living room, the beds were comfortable, the kitchen fully occupied. Everything was clean and nice. Silvio and Elena helped us a lot. Thank you!

We enjoyed our stay and will be definitely coming back in our next visit to Rome.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We found this unit to be in a great location. A bus/ticket stop was right outside the door. The unit was large, clean and bright. Groceries were available to purchase nearby. The convenience of a clothes washer was icing on the cake for us! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this apartment to anyone traveling to Rome.

Roomy apartment in convenient location

  • 4 of 5

We spent 4 nights at this apartment. The apartment is very roomy-the largest we have stayed at in our trips to Europe. Kitchen is well equipped. Internet and Tv worked without problems. Security is very good. Neighborhood seems safe with several good restaurants, grocers and a pharmacy nearby.

Easy walk to most sites. (20 minutes to Vatican)

Apartment is on 4th floor (US 5th) with an elevator. There is no view from the apartment as it overlooks a paved courtyard.

Beds were comfortable-apartment was warm, even with record-breaking cold during our visit.

The ONLY problem was a sewage smell in master bath we had when returning in evening after touring all day. We contacted the owner, and he responded quickly with instructions to run water in bathroom sink and shower and open window. This worked fine except it was freezing cold and leaving window open lowered the temperature in the bathroom to an uncomfortable temperature (toilet was next to window). When we closed the window any significant time, the odor returned. So we tried to keep it closed most of the time, and opened to "clear the air" before closing again to keep the heat in.

We would consider staying here again on our next trip to Rome.
