Have you never lived in a 'Palazzo' built from a Pope for his sister? Probably not. 'Casa Pasquino' is in a mansion like this, built from the Chigi family in 1670. The very quiet apartment is on the second floor (lift) and overlooks the back of the house. At the same time you'll be in the heart of the vibrant roman life: Piazza Navona, Campo de Fiori, the Pantheon, the Coliseum, the Spanish Steps and the Trevi fountain - you may visit all these monuments, simply walking. It's hard to say what you'll find most breathtaking about the eternal city - the arrogant opulence of the Vatican, the timelessness of the Forum, the top speed of a Ferrari or your cappuccino. Also in the apartment's street, via del Governo Vecchio, you' ll find wonderful buildings, elegant shops, wine bar and restaurants.
We began our trip to Italy in Rome. What an awesome city! This apartment is in a lovely old building and is centrally located but also very quiet. The kitchen is tiny but we made breakfast only enjoying our other meals at the many options available. We were able to walk easily to the Pantheon, Spanish Steps and the Vatican Museum. The cafe across the road had excellent food and cappuccino and the best gelato in all of Rome was just down the street at the Frigidarium. I highly recommend it! There is also a pizzeria nearby that is well frequented and makes amazing Quattro Fromaggi pizza among others. We would definitely stay here again! The apartment was clean, quiet and in a great location!
Oh, Blessed Air Conditioning...How we loved you!
This Rome apartment was great for our family of 4. The beds were comfortable (a little firm for me, but that is personal preference). I would have loved an extra pillow or two, but we were all so tired from the heat and walking that I doubt it mattered much! The apartment was clean and fairly well appointed. We didn't cook and only ate breakfast at the apartment, so I can't speak to the cooking utensils. The coffee makers need to be cleaned. It took almost an hour to brew a pot of coffee! Otherwise, no complaints at all.
The bathroom was small, but everything worked as it should. Plenty of hot water for us all to shower and enough towels for everyone.
The information in the drawer of the chest in the living area was very helpful for getting around.
Daniella was very quick to respond to our needs leading up to our arrival. Our initial flight was cancelled and we had to reschedule for later in the day. She handled all of the details regarding our transportation to and from the airport and we appreciate that so much! The car service was exceptional and we enjoyed talking with the drivers.
There were ample excellent restaurants just a few steps outside of the apartment door. We chose not to wait in line for what turns out is the best pizza in Rome just down the street at Pizza Baffetto. Next time!
If you have the opportunity to take the bike tour of the Apian Way, I'd suggest you do so. It was our favorite activity of our visit. The tour guide was great! We hit Sperlonga and, while it was an interesting experience getting there on public transportation, the beach was fantastic and worth it!
I can't leave this review without mentioning our favorite amenity of the apartment...AIR CONDITIONING! It was brutally hot while we visited Rome and it was a pleasure to come home in the evenings to a cool apartment. We ran the a/c at night and turned it off while we were out during the day. The apartment was still cool when we returned even late in the evening. It was a wonderful treat! Being an interior unit, it was also very quiet.
Thank you for an excellent visit!
Staying near Piazza Navona was a perfect location. The apartment was nice and clean. It was plenty of space for us. The pictures showed a bed in the second bedroom, however the picture was not accurate and there was actually just a small daybed against the wall. The hostess was extremely nice and took plenty of time to show us everything with the apartment. Nice place for the price!
I stayed at this apartment with my husband, granddaughter and brother in June. I was thrilled! We had them arrange our transfer from the airport and found the driver to also be an excellent tour guide, telling us about every place we passed. At the apartment we were met by a very nice lady who welcomed us and showed us around. The accommodations were delughtful, comfortable, good beds, and very nice. The apartment was quiet and so easy to get to. In fact, the location was fabulous! It couldn't have been better! A lovely short stroll to Piazza Navonna (one of my favorite spaces), Campo de Fiori, and the Pantheon. We took a taxi to the Coliseum and Vatican, but for folks in a little better shape it would have been a pleasant walk. And down the street about a block and a half the opposite direction from the Piazza was the best gelato shop in Rome...the Frigidarium! Love, love, love. The only thing I would suggest to the owners is the instructions about the trash, which were very confusing, be in writing. I did appreciatehowever, how Rome recycles.
Perfect location, in the heart of old Rome.
As a family of 3 we stayed for 9 days in the apartment. The building has character and charm and is ideally located within reasonable walking distance from all of the main attractions. From the apartment door you enter into the lounge and dining area which has the bathroom and small kitchen off to the left, a set of double doors lead into the first bed room which has a decorative screen in front of the bed area to provide privacy. From this bedroom a door to left leads to the main bedroom which is large and very spacious. The apartment is partially wrapped around an internal light well to the rear of the building and is therefore peaceful and quiet and possibly cooler as there is no direct sun light. Back down the stairs, or lift which is both very handy and quaint, a long hall way leads to the main door and as you approach the noise, aromatic smells and buzz of the narrow street hit your senses as the peace and quiet of the apartment is left behind. There are a number of restaurants/bars either directly across or merely a few paces away all are friendly with reasonably priced meals. Piazza Navona and Campo de Fiori are minutes away providing more restaurants and street entertainment at night.
The owner was friendly and help full at all stages of the booking and we were met at the front door by her agent who explained the workings of the apartment and services. As we arrived late evening we took advantage of a pre arranged taxi that collected us from the airport and provided us with our first tour guide of Rome as he expertly transported us to the apartment
As for Rome itself this mere note could not adequately describe the beauty and splendour – You will have to go and see it for yourself and if you do then this apartment and location is perfect.
We spent 5 days in Rome with 3 children.
The flat is perfectly located to visit all sightseeings by walking. It is in the middle of the busy streets, but still quiet to have rest after the long days.
The rooms are simple yet cosy and tidy.
The bathroom is pretty small, and we had some problems with the waterpressure.
We were missing the internet access in the flat, but this could be solved in the nearby cafes.
I can recommend it for anyone who visits Rome and only wants to spend the sleeping hours among the four walls.
The apartment is near to Piazza di Pasquino. This is a small square near Piazza Navona known for the torso of a statue representing Menelaus with the body of Patroclus, but known as Pasquino after the name of a tailor who lived nearby and who had a reputation for lampooning. The most famous of the talking statues of Rome is still used from time to time for posting messages and claims. Usually Pasquino talked with Marforio, more occasionally with Madama Lucrezia, Abate Luigi, il Facchino and il Babuino. In Loggia della Signoria in Florence there is another Roman copy of the ancient Greek statue: it was found in Rome in the XVIth century and brought to Florence where it was amply restored. Many houses in the narrow streets near Piazza di Pasquino retain an indication of their former owners: the dove of the Pamphilj is obviously on many buildings as this family owned most of the estates near Piazza Navona.
