Location, location, location...Attico Arcadia represents the quintessential accommodation in Rome. A stone throw away from major landmarks such as Piazza Navona, Campo de' Fiori and the Pantheon we a sure that your stay in this stunning apartment will remain in your hearts and minds for many years to come.
Rome city centre penthouse with views over the roofs of Rome and the Vatican. All of Rome's major landmarks such as Saint Peter's, Piazza Navona, the Pantheon, Piazza di Spagna, the Colosseum, the Roman Forum and Capitol hill can be reached by foot. The high fashion shopping district is only a walk away, the same for the Campo di Fiori farmer's market where you can find fresh fruit and vegetables every day of the week (closed Sundays). The area is also characterized with bustling cafes and restaurants. If you wish to stay at home and enjoy a quiet dinner on the deck overlooking Rome, there is a supermarket just around the corner where you can find all sorts of fine Italian produce. They key attraction of this area is what people refer to as 'hidden Rome'. Walk out from the apartment and take the little side alleys that characterize this Medieval part of the city where you will discover hidden squares featuring buildings with stunning architecture. Most museums are now open on Sundays, the Capitolini museum, the Vatican museum, the Galleria Doria-Pamphili and the Galleria Borghese (must book online) can all be reached on foot. And after visiting the latter why not enjoy a stroll in the Villa Borghese park from where you can reach the Picio with its breathtaking views of Rome. From the apartment you can also cross the Tiber river and enter Trastevere with its bustling nightlife, here you will find the best restaurants such as Le Mani in Pasta in Via dei Genovesi and lots of bars and cafes. The best truffle ice creams are just down stairs in Piazza Navona at the Tre Scalini bar. The best brunch or proper English breakfast (waffles, pancakes, french toast) can only be found at Babington's on the Spanish Steps. On the way back why not stop off at Valentino or Armani's and treat yourself to something new. For sure staying at Attico Arcadia will be memorable.
I don't want to say what everyone else has said. The apartment looked as shown in the photos. I did wonder where they steps behind the kitchen area led and those are to the bedroom & bathroom. The bathroom that isn't shown has a tub and shower. There is a washing machine in a closet that truly came in handy. There is a rod for hanging clothes or you can hand them on a line that is provided on the terrace. The bed is king size and very comfortable. There is a desk area that has multiple Rome travel books. The terrace and its view is fabulous. The location is superb. It is in a quiet little alley. There is an adjacent street that has a lot of restaurants without the many shops that draw tourists. We were able to walk to Piazza Navona & Campo di fiori within less than 5 minutes, Pantheon 5-7 minutes, and Vatican 20 - 25 minutes. We walked home from the Colosseum and it was about 30 minutes. Trevi Fountain was about 15 minutes. Everything was doable. We never met Alex but he was easily reachable by email. We never had a need to reach him for anything for the apartment. The elevator was great with luggage but it is small. I would defintely rent this apartment again and suggest it to friends. You will be very pleased.
Terrific location, small, really only good for 2 people. We found it comfortable and homey. As others have noted, there are internal stairs with no handrails, so be sure you can navigate that. King-size bed with access from one side only. The view of church domes and the regular ringing of church bells reassured us that we were actually in Rome! Most of our 9 days there we found good places to eat in the immediate vicinity, especially the Tuscan restaurant on the right just after turning right into Piazza Pasquino from the apartment. One negative for us is that the bed linens and towels had been washed in a floral fragrance soap which took several days to air out -- we'd really suggest using plain unscented soap for those of us who are sensitive to strong scents. It made for a great vacation for us, with walking distance to so much of what visitors want to see in Rome, and a nearby taxi stand (and bus access) for those more distant sights.
Perfect location, absolutely beautiful view from the terrace and just about anywhere in the apartment. Perfect for two. Perfect little kitchen and sitting area. Very comfortable. I loved all of it's books and paintings on the wall. A great place to return to after walking and exploring Rome each day. We had a wonderful stay at Attico Arcadia.
Really liked this apt. Great patio outside with rooftop views of the city. Everything was clean & was as represented. Comfortable furniture, king size bed (very, very firm), kitchen, full bath, & washer. Air conditioner in bed room & tbe building has an elevator so you dont have carry luggage upstairs. The Apt is located beside Piazza Nuvana. It is located a quick cab ride to all major sites (5 minutes).
We stayed at this property for two weeks. It was perfectly located for what we had planned which was a walking tour of Rome. Each day we left on foot and were able to see all of the main historical sights in the city. The restaurants and shops in the Piazza Navona and nearby were the best in the city in our opinion. We enjoy cooking our own food as well, and there was a grocery store very close for purchasing whatever you need. If you need a taxi, there are several places super close to get one. Church bells ring during the day and you can hear music from the terrace on some nights. We had a visiting Seagull that liked to perch outside the bathroom window which was fun.
The apartment is well stocked and comfortable. The air conditioner was a very welcome item in the afternoons that we were home. If you just want to stay in for a day, there are plenty of television stations and he has provided a large selection of books if you enjoy reading. I used the small washing machine a few times and he has a clothesline for drying. We opened the sliding doors every morning and evening to let the breeze in and enjoyed that very much. You can pull the drapes all the way open and let it a lot of light. We had a slight problem with that as there were 2 cats that constantly tried to get in the apartment. If you are not a fan of cats, it can be irritating. They are really cute, but I'm not a fan of cats. We did come up with a way to keep them out finally. I would suggest that the owner possibly install a screen door on one of the large doors. The apartment has 3 levels, so you do need to be able to do stairs easily if you stay there. My husband and I are into fitness, so we loved them and also took the 100 plus stairs to the apartment each day. There is a lift for those who do not.
We will definitely stay here again if we make another trip to Rome. It felt like we were residents of the city and not just temporary visitors.
As others have said, it's small, but the location is unbeatable--walkable to all major sites, as well as great restos (Cul de Sac, Pizzeria Baffetto, Ditirambo) and the awesome Frigidarium for gelato. Also really enjoyed recharging on the sunny terrace.
Location, location, location... in the centre of Rome the Arcadia penthouse represents the quintessential accommodation for those wish to visit and discover the hidden secretes of Rome. A stone throw away from either Piazza Navona where you can enjoy the best truffle ice cream at 'i tre scalini' or from Campo de' Fiori where you can shop for fresh fruit and vegetables, we are sure that the Arcadia penthouse will stay in your heart and minds for many years to come. All major landmarks such as the Vatican, the Colosseum, the Spanish Steps, the Pantheon and the Trevi Fountain can be reached In 20-30 minutes on foot. For those who wish to experience Rome night life the surrounding area is packed with bustling trattorias, restaurants and bars and trendy clubs. In addition Italian design, fashion and style can be found in the many boutiques that enrich the streets of the area.
