About the property

2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleep 6

The thing we appreciate most about this apartment is its location, central and in a walking distance from major historical and cultural sites of Rome (Spanish Steps and Via Veneto just behind the corner, Trevi Fountain 5 min walking...)

However the interior, renewed on January, knows how to surprise with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, kitchenette and dining room-living room and a fabulous view on the Barberini Square.WIFI

The first room has two single beds and overlooks the Piazza Barberini dominating the Tritone Fountain, the second with a double bed is on the loft over the livingroom, a door separate this space from the secon bedroom, creating a very romantic corner.

The spacious living room allows you to relax when returning from your visits in the city.

The two bathrooms are comfortable, both with shower.

The apt is equipped with a new microwave and toaster, washing machine, Tv only for Dvd & Play station 1 consol with games and movies .

3rd bedroom (detached unit) availble on request with insuite bathroom.

II apartment in the same building & same floor is avilable for a max of 15 people.

additional unit: If you are more than 6 and you want to share the apartment with your group, a 3rd bedroom is available on request, in the same building than tha apt but totally independent from it.

It offers an independent bathroom with shower, a tv with cable and wi-fi, air conditioning/heating and a very unusual bunk bed with a french size down and a single bed on the top.

With that solution you can sleep 6 people!

Check for availability.

Ottima posizione per visitare Roma

  • 4 of 5

L'appartamento, situato in posizione strategica per poter visitare la città a piedi, con i mezzi pubblici o spostarsi con i taxi, presenta i confort essenziali per soggiorni brevi. Sono presenti gli elettrodomestici e le supellettili necessari. Un pò scomodo il divano e sarebbero necessarie delle tovagliette all'americana da utilizzare per la colazione. L'accoglienza della proprietà è stata buona. La casa era pulita e la consiglierei ad un amico.

Outstanding Location, reasonable price and pleasant experience.

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here and we had a great time. You really cannot beat this apartment for the location and price. The kids loved having a loft and not having to walk very far to see the sights. The metro is across the street and you can walk to Trevi, Borghese, Spanish Steps and Pantheon with little effort. The apartment was clean and easy to find. The view out of the window is great for people watching. We would stay again.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your comment. Since I have taken up in 2013 to manage my apartment, that for family reasons I had to give it to an agency with a very negative result. Now I try to treat my guests like old friends I want to give them the warmth they have in their home. I think this is the success of having many guests as beautiful as your family. Thanks again for everything I hope to welcome you again or have your friends. I wish you much happiness. greetings Giulia

Exceeded our Expectations

  • 5 of 5

The apartment exceeded our expectations. The location was very good, the metro and taxi stands was literally a couple of paces away, notwithstanding that we rarely used these amenities as all was within walking distance.

The layout of the apartment suited us fine with me and my wife having one bedroom, whilst my daughter, husband and two girls used the living room with the loft as the second bedroom. The kids loved it. The fact that there were 2 bathrooms was very convenient. The kitchen is small and there is no dining table, but convenient enough to be able to have a cup of tea and breakfast. The apartment was clean and well maintained. Claudia and Humberto were very nice with us and provided us with whatever we requested. Lots of restaurants near the apartment, but one must be cautious as some of them are rather pricey. I would definitely recommend this apartment.

We've been at Rome for 10 days. And the flat was really nice. The location was great, only 3-4 minutes from Piazza Spagna and Fontana di Trevi.

The flat was nice, with beds for 4 or 6 people we had everything, even coffee, sugar and olive oil.

Humberto were a nice host and explained us every know how of the house. We had wi-fi and we sleeped really good. The pillows were great and the hot water of the bath was also great.

Thank you for making us feeling like home in Rome!!!

Gracias y un saludo

Good but could use some improvements than would be Great!

  • 3 of 5

Location was great, view from windows wonderful. Four people staying only one roll of toliet paper had to buy our own. Cute place if things were cleaned up more... walls need to be painted , blankets need cleaning beds were ok, some light bulbs were out and would be nice to get more towels after afew days we stayed a week. was nice to get picked up from airport and back to airport from Enzo. Thank you for the wine. Air conditioner was working and wifi that was a plus. washing machine never used but looked kind of gross. All in all good but can be made much better with some improvements!

Location good, otherwise below expectations

  • 2 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful vacation in Italy. Unfortunately, this apartment was the only part of our trip that was below our expectations.

First the good - We loved the Barberini Square location. The apartment was generally clean (the green algae on the soap dish in the working shower was the only exception). The apartment is small, but has a nice layout, and we had no problem sleeping all 5 in our family.

The bad...

Don't rent this apartment when the weather is expected to be hot. The apartment has two wall-mounted air coolers. Even if they were both working perfectly, they would've had trouble keeping up with the hot weather the week we were there. However, one of them only acted as a fan, and would not cool. The apartment was so hot during the day, we were not able to come back for a rest. We tried not to re-enter the apartment until after sunset. I was assured the broken air cooler was working, but it clearly was not. We had it set the same way as the other one, and the other one worked as it is supposed to.

The unit has two bathrooms. One of the showers had a broken hose. I reported this the first evening we were there, but not only was it not fixed, I was told someone came in to check it, and reported that it was working fine. I was so incredulous that someone would claim a clearly broken shower was working that I took a video of the broken shower and sent it to Chiara (I wanted to include the link but was not permitted to do so on this post).

Other things you should be clear about:

* Chiara will charge an extra fee for using Paypal. I have no doubt she is legitimately passing on the fee that she is charged, but to date I still don't see it disclosed on her VRBO site.

* The TV gets no outside stations. It is only good for playing videos.

* There is no wifi in the apartment. You can pay to eat/drink at a table at nearby cafe's with wifi, but it will cost you.

* While there is a small washer in the apartment, there is nowhere to hang wet clothes. Easier to just go to the laundromat, which we did while there.

If the shower gets fixed, you aren't there at a time of the year needing air conditioning, and you don't need wifi, this may be worth looking at for a rental.

Owner's Response: Dear Chris, I'm so sorry your vacation had a so bad ending. First I want to let you know that I always trust my guests and do all my best to make your holiday as perfect as your expectations. That's why I sent 2 people at the apt and they both referred to me that everything was ok (we don't have all the same idea!). Unfortunately I was having a surgery and could not come to check personally. Anyway all the problems were fixed as I could get to the apt, so don't be worried for air conditionin or showers, they are now working perfectly! Concerning the tv, the cable is not mentioned on the web, the tv works just for playstation and DVD reader (sorry did you take the plugs for the playstation? I could not find them after your visit) eather the wi-fi connection, so I don't know why you where looking for both! Hope to welcome you next time. Chiara
