About the property

Roma-INCANTATA Apartment

We are passionate about our hospitality and consistently rewarded with positive feedback. We guarantee you a truly satisfying stay. The apartment is in the centrally located district of Appio Latino, close to the historical centre of Rome. It is in very high demand because it offers the advantage of close vicinity to ‘Metro A’ (subway Line A) of the subway (metropolitana), the faster and simpler means of moving around Rome.

Why Fernando Rocchetti chose San Giovanni (St. John Lateran)

" Roma-INCANTATA apartment was calm, well decorated and supplied with everything one could wish for. The beds are comfortable and the shower is large enough for two! The flat is in a very quiet side street. It is a couple of minutes walk to the metro, buses and to the Cafarella Park that leads into the Appia Antica park, so a good place for running walking and cycling and wonderful archaeology. There are good food shops including a bakery nearby and Fernando recommended a couple of restaurants. We would recommend Roma-INCANTATA apartment and will definitely stay here if we come back to Rome "

Above is a typical review on our apartment.

We have a lot of reviews, all fully positive (5 stars).

We are confident that you will be satisfied.

Just Home and missing this lovely apartment already.

  • 5 of 5

Not sure what I can add to the already glowing reviews! The apartment was absolutely perfect and lived up,to the pictures. Beds really comfortable. Bathroom and kitchen very well fitted out and lacking nothing. We spent many a happy hour on the terrace watching Roman life. Fernando’s attention to detail, descriptions of the public transport, particularly the 87 bus which takes you direct to Colosseum and Piazza Navona, collection and drop off from the airport etc were much appreciated. Wonderful bakers just across the road and so many shops, restaurants, takeaways within 5 minutes walk as well as the metro station. My daughter was especially impressed by the McDonalds next door to the Metro, though maybe not our highlight ;-) We preferred the fabulous takeaway pizzas that were delicious and so cheap, and the gelato. We had great meals at La Caletta, Olio e Farine and Casali e Gasparino (next to Metro stop) .

It was just wonderful to spend long days seeing the sights then come home and experience a bit of real Roman life away from the touristic part. If you don’t like big queues, it’s definitely worth paying for the “skip the line “ tours in advance for the colosseum and Vatican museums. You can do this via their websites vs traditional tour companies. We also did a “beneath the streets” tour booked with Viator which we really enjoyed. The glass lift to the top of Il Vittoriano gives fabulous views over the city. A week wasn’t long enough. We will definitely be back and stay in the apartment again. Thanks Fernando!

AMAZING & WONDERFUL STAY IN ROME

  • 5 of 5

There are no words adequate enough to explain our satisfaction with this property. The owners - Fernando, Angela and their children - were amazing. They made us feel like family and were very concerned that we have the very best stay. Their communication was top notch from the reservation confirmation to well after our stay. They helped us every step of the way and for that we will be eternally grateful. Every single question we asked was addressed in a timely, kind, and informative response. Their home was perfect for our family of four. It had all the amenities of home - tastefully decorated, comfortable, air conditioning (big plus given the heat and long days of walking). The location of the property was ideal to be able to live amongst the citizens of the community and be immersed in the environment, yet only a few short blocks from the Metro station. Should we have the opportunity to return to Rome, we will gladly request to stay at the Rocchetti property. They go above and beyond to make sure your vacation is the very best stay from providing input & advice on how to avoid long lines at the tourist attractions, to grocery store & restaurant recommendations, to how to get from one place to another, etc. Your satisfaction is their top priority. Cannot recommend enough. Grazie mille Fernando & family.

Lovely, clean, roomy, conveniently located.

  • 5 of 5

Fernando was extremely helpful to us in navigating Rome. We arrived by car, and he had a parking space held for us. He took time to explain the metro, bus system and sights to see. He made our stay very comfortable. The apartment had everything we needed. Just a short walk to the Metro and many shops and restaurants. We would definitely stay there again. Ciao

We had a wonderful time in Rome! Our apartment was bright, clean and comfortable. It was fully stocked with everything we needed. Our hosts were friendly and kind. We felt very welcome and supported. The neighborhood was safe and quiet and very accessible due to Metro line close by. This is an amazing apartment, we highly recommend it for your first or next visit to Rome! Grazie Mille!

Charming apartment near the metro

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this apartment. We stayed for two nights while we visited Rome, Pompeii and Naples. It's proximity to the metro made it easy to get anywhere we wanted to go. Everything was great!
