“Perfect home away from home”

My famiy had the pleasure of staying at the Spanish Steps Apartment September 20th through October 1st, 2012. The apartment suited ALL of our needs. It was perfectly located within walking distance of most everything. We were pleasantly surprised that the apartment was much larger than we had expected. The apartment was actually nicer than the online photos depicted! It is evident that David has put a lot of thought into all of the details that make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. We emailed David with travel questions while we were in Rome and he answered them very promptly. What a lifesaver! David's book of recommendations in the living room was wonderful. We went to many of the fabulous restaurants he had listed and he was "spot on" about every one of them. Rosie was also wonderful to work with. She arranged all of our transports to and from the airport on several different occasions. We used the apartment as our home base while we traveled throughout Italy and Germany. It was so nice to have our apartment to come home to.
Without hesitation, we would stay at the Spanish Steps Apartment again! Thank you David!

We loved it here at Spanish Steps. Apartment perfectly located, quiet but super convenient. Kids and I comfortable in good beds. Wifi, air con and washer/dryer were apartment highlights. Oh and yoga mats. Walked everywhere from here: Ancient Rome, Vatican, Tiber, Campo di Fiori for the daily market, Piazza del Popolo, Pantheon, Mouth of Truth, etc but if cabs needed there are always some right down street. Discovered resto Sofie up the street, ate there almost every night. Grocer around corner. Shopping everywhere. Absolutely wonderful. David is a terrific host, and the apartment is perfectly stocked with books, piod, tv, little pc and printer and accessories. It is the only place to stay in Rome. Really.

“Great apartment in the heart of Rome with excellent amenities and a great owner”

My wife and two grown up children stayed at this apt during the end of May/early June. Cannot tell you how great this apt is. First of all, the owner was extremely quick to respond to our query and was very pleasant to chat with. He outlined the apt details and the process for booking it. We did the whole apt photo tour, loved what we saw and booked it right away. My children left earlier than us and were greeted by Rosie, the property manager, a wonderful lady. The owner provided a complimentary airport pick-up, a very nice gesture and avoiding the aggravation of finding airport pick-ups in a city we were visiting for the first time and were unfamiliar with. There were basic groceries already there for us. When we got to Rome and arrived at the apt, we were very happy to see how spacious it was. Even the bedrooms are huge as is the living room with two very nice bathrooms. Loved the laptop computer with the internet connection...I was also working while I was there. Equally wonderful is that the land line phone allows you to make local calls in Rome and even reach both the property manager and the owner also, in case of a problem. The comforters, sheets, pillows were great, small toiletries all there in the apt and the air conditioners worked wonderfully well when it got hot. This is critical as Rome can get really hot and many apts don't have air conditioners or the internet. The kitchen also had everything. Another great thing was the dishwasher and the washer/dryer. Again, this is very important as most apts don't have laundry facilities and you can only appreciate it when you don't have to go through the time and hassle of going to laundromats in Rome which are few and far in between. The owner is American and has made up this apartment to a very high American standard...we felt nothing had been omitted...he had thought of everything you could think of if you were living in your own apt. Cannot say enough good things about him and his awareness and care to make his guests feel very comfortable during their stay there.
The apt is only a few minutes walking distance from the Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain and easily accessible by foot, subway or taxi to all other parts of central Rome. We were four of us and took a taxi everyhwere as it was quick, economical and efficient. The Spanish Steps subway is also less than 5 minutes away. The apt is very safe, very secure and makes you feel like you are living like a local. Coffee bars, pasticcerias, diners, restaurants abound and are wonderful. Whoever would've thought that you could eat pizzas and pastas and other wonderful Italian food for two weeks and love it...we did! Taxi stands are very close by and we had no problems getting a taxi at any time of the day. Equally, taxi drivers are very familiar with Piazza San Silvestro (where the nearest taxi stand is, about 3 minutes walk from the apt) so getting dropped off there was very easy. This apt was so central that no matter where we went...the Colosseum, the Pantheon, Piazza Navona, Campo de Fiori, the Vatican...all of which are in different parts of central Rome..it was quick, easy and efficient to get to without spending a lot of time. Even Via del Corso, Rome's main shopping street was 5 minutes away. On some of our walking tours, where we met other tourists, we felt sorry for them as they scrambled to catch trains or subway connections to other parts of central Rome because they were living on an extremity of the city or outside. All of us have travelled a lot around the world and we all felt this was one of the best vacations we had ever taken. We would return to Rome and to the Spanish Steps apartment in a heartbeat! Thank you David for making our stay in Rome a truly wonderful and memorable one..we shall return!!!
