Italy is a country full of glittering treasures and Rome is its brightest jewels. I am delighted to be able to offer a comfortable and beautiful ambiance to my guests. Every amenity and comfort is well thought out and we make sure that the apartment is clean and in excellent condition at all times. I take pride in meeting the needs of my traveling friends while helping to make their stay in Rome a memorable one. It is important to me to put the needs and comfort of my guests first and I am honored to say that this is gratefully reflected back to me through referrals and returning guests. My apartment is truly a 'home away from home'.
Owner purchased this Apartment in 2000
Why Owner chose Municipio I
The location simply could not be better as the area is one of the most famous and picturesque of the historical center, surrounded by archaeological sites, artisan and antique shops, theatres, traditional bakeries, colourful markets, designer stores, boutiques, restaurants, typical Italian cafes and winebars...
What makes this Apartment unique
The apartment is right in the historic centre of Rome and from here you can walk to every important interesting point without public transport. However the apartment is very conveniently connected to any city landmark and to Airport by fast and efficient public transportation ( both buses and subway ) and you will enjoy the real Italian style everyday life. Upon request you can book a transfer from and for Fiumicino or Ciampino airports with our chauffeur driven transfer. You can request the service by sending us an e-mail including your flight details.

Excellent location, lots of amenities, bright, comfortable space, would come back!
This unit is bright and cheerful, with a well-stocked kitchen and other amenities. We really like having a space other than the bedroom to relax in and the couch and chair in the living room were great. It is in a great location, with easy access to transit and walking distance to several lovely areas. We could hear neighbours (TV, laughing, someone watching a sporting event, someone playing piano quite well) in the evenings but never too loud and it was always quiet by about 9:30 or 10:00 pm. Alina checked us in, showed us how everything worked, and offered some helpful suggestions about how to use the transit and local attractions. We really enjoyed the restaurant at the corner, Il Gianfornaio, and we took advantage of being 5 minutes from the Tiber with walks along the river almost every day. We certainly recommend this location.
Quaint and cute but not in the nicest area of Roma.
Property is cute and the pictures are accurate. However, the area has graffiti all over it and it isn't quite as close to the Coliseum and Forums as it seems. The restaurants around it are descent but there's not many of them. The bed in the bedroom was very comfortable as was the sofa sleeper. However the sofa sleeper is incredibly loud anytime someone moves on it. The owner is friendly as was the person who greeted us on our arrival.
The advertisement says "Just renewed". That is misleading. The apartment may have been renewed a couple of years ago. It was okay. Nothing plush or luxurious, just okay. It was certainly adequate. The apartment is in a good location to explore Rome with some good restaurants nearby.
Quiet getaway within Rome
We have just returned from a week in Rome and loved this location. The apartment was exactly as described. We are a family of four with two teen sons, and this apartment accommodated all of us comfortably. Highlights of the apartment: the living room has both a pull-out couch and chair (can sleep up to three in living room); bed in the bedroom is very comfortable and a perfect place for an afternoon nap; air conditioner works really well; wifi was fast; location is safe and very quiet; water pressure in shower is great with plenty of hot water.
The location of the apartment was quite convenient with an easy walk (~ 15 min) to Trastevere, the Jewish Ghetto and Capitoline Hill/Colosseum/Roman Forum. There is a bus stop right in front of the apartment and a metro stop a few blocks away. Tickets for transportation can be purchased two doors down at the Tabacchi shop. We did not use this transportation, since the taxi service in Rome is wonderful and convenient. For a family of four the cost of the taxi is relatively similar to the cost of the bus/metro. I highly recommend downloading the app "My Taxi" which worked perfectly! It is similar to Uber in the US- but is the preferred taxi app in Rome. With this app the taxi comes directly to you- never took more than 3 minutes- and then drops you at the destination that you type into the app (don't need to worry about pronouncing the location correctly). The other convenience is that it is cashless- use the credit card on file with the app.
Technically you don't need to leave the block to eat... there is a bakery/espresso place next door, an excellent pizza place around the corner, and a gelato place directly across the street that serves great gelato and is open from 7 am to midnight. We also LOVED the food at Nonna Betta (Jewish Ghetto) and La Gensola (Trastevere).
We had the VRBO owner help us with a chauffeur from the airport which was certainly convenient, albeit a little expensive (60 euro-cash). On the way back to the airport, we were much more savvy and used the my taxi app- paid 24 euro...
All in all- a lovely stay in a quaint apartment. We would definitely stay there again! Ciao-
Would definitely return here!
Location, location, location! This was fabulous for our two-week stay in Rome. Our goal was to live like a Roman, but be sure to visit all the tourist sites. The bus line was right outside the gates to the apartment building. There is a phenomenal cafe, Gianfornario a few steps away, a great Pizza place next door, and a gelato place across the street! Walk a few blocks and there are many shops where the language is only Italian, children play in the parks and the restaurants are authentic old world cooking. Il Forno Antico was our favorite.
The apartment itself was perfect and as described. The kitchen was well equipped, the furniture and bed very comfortable. There was a washing machine which came in handy for our stay. Although there is no dryer, typical in Italy, the drying rack worked just fine! Everything in the apartment was very clean with more than enough closet space to arrange belongings for our stay. Although there were folks above us, we rarely heard them and there was no disturbance from the street. We arranged airport pick up and return through our host who was there to greet us when we arrived.
We would definitely return to Testaccio and this apartment!
Dear Sylvia, thanks a lot for your review I hope to see you again in Rome!
Very nice condo with great air conditioning
We stayed here for five nights in July and the location was fantastic. Very close to the bus and surrounded by fabulous restaurants. We especially loved Pizzeria Da Remo right around the corner and ate there several times. The condo is very modern and clean and the air conditioner was like ice. I highly recommend this place!
The apartment is right in the historic centre of Rome and from here you can walk to every important interesting point without public transport. However the apartment is very conveniently connected to any city landmark and to Airport by fast and efficient public transportation ( both busses and subway ) and you will enjoy the real Italian style everyday life.
The apartment has a very warm atmosphere. It has an entrance that leads to a bright living-room with sofas, a dining area with open kitchen, a bedroom, the bathroom and walk-in wardrobe. The sofa is a confortable sofa-bed (King size, excellent quality), there is also a single bed. The kitchen has all modern fittings and it is fully equipped with all necessary cooking supplies. The bedroom has a large King size bed and plenty of wardrobe space. The beautiful bathroom has a big box shower. Just a few meters from the property you'll find the famous 'Bocca della Verita' (Mouth of Truth). In the porch of the mediaeval Church of Santa Maria in Cosmedin on the south side there is one of Rome's symbols, the so-called Mouth of Truth: this is a large round stone, with a grotesque face in relief with holes through the eyes and the nose, and a larger opening for the mouth.Viewers of the film 'Roman Holiday' will remember the scene in which Gregory Peck alarmed Audrey Hepburn by inserting his arm in the mouth and quickly withdrawing it with his hand concealed in his sleeve. In the past centuries, according to legend, the mouth was believed to close on the hand of anyone hearing false witness, particularly women accused of adultery. And this 'test' is still a must for all tourists.
The apartment has every conforts: air conditioned, autonomus heating, SAT-TV, telephone, safety box, radio, iron/ironing board, hair dryer, Bed linen and blankets, bath towels and table linen provided.
The price are based on 2 persons.
