Comfy, clean, great location
Historic Rome at it`s finest, easy walkability to the sites and a sunny terrace - the cheerful focal point of the apartment - make this a very inviting vacation apartment.
Just a stone`s throw from majestic Piazza Navona, the Pompeo apartment offers comfort, modern amenities and a notably quiet ambience topped off with a nice terrace. The area was once the location of the Roman Theatre of Pompeo, the very first permanent Roman theatre, commissioned by the Roman General Pompeo in 55 B.C., remnants of which can still be seen today in the colonnade across the piazza.
The apartment is within very easy walking distance to Piazza Navona, the Pantheon and Campo de` Fiori home to Rome`s most famous outdoor fresh produce market. Plentiful restaurants and cafes in the area.
The Pompeo apartment is located in a small building the opens onto a piazza with loads of typical Italian character. The unique curve of the buildings that line the piazza follows the architectural lines of the Theatre of Pompeo. The charming buildings now standing date back to Renaissance times.
A very important feature of this apartment is it`s position in the back of the building, away from traffic and pedestrian noise. Rome is a busy bustling city and this area is prime historic center with the sites at your doorstep; quiet apartments with a terrace near Piazza Navona, the Pantheon and Campo de` Fiori are highly prized.
The Pompeo apartment is built around a sunny, pleasant terrace. The apartment wraps the terrace on three sides. You`ll enjoy the terrace as your outdoor living and dining room during much of the year when temperatures are mild. It has a table, 4 chairs and an electric retractible awning. It is nicely landscaped with a vine-planted trellis and potted plants.
Step through the front door and be greeted by the first set of French doors that open to the terrace. A short hallway perpendicular to the foyer that leads to the living room and kitchen has two more sets of French doors opening to the terrace. Imagine the light and fresh air you`ll enjoy from your own private terrace.
The living room is furnished with an upholstered armchair, flat screen TV which receives local channels, built-in desk and a sofa bed which makes up into two independent twin beds. This style of sofa bed is more comfortable than a folding sofa bed since the mattresses are thicker since they don`t have to fold in the middle. The desk is handy if you are bringing a laptop; the apartment has WiFi throughout. The living room has drapes on the doorway for privacy.
The kitchen can be accessed off the hallway or through the living room. It`s large for Rome and is fully furnished. A table seats four although the terrace, which can easily be accessed from the kitchen, is perfect for meals al fresco which you can prepare from the bevy of wonderful food shops and array of fresh produce in this neighborhood.
A full bathroom just beyond the kitchen has sink, fully enclosed shower, toilet and bidet.
The bedroom also opens out onto the terrace. It has a queen size bed and an adjoining full bathroom, also with sink, fully enclosed shower, toilet and bidet.

Guest Book Testimonials
Location couldn't have been better
We just got back from our time at the Pompeo apartment and just wanted to write to say the apartment was great for us and just as you described. Location couldn’t have been better, apartment itself particularly kitchen and bathrooms and master bedroom were well renovated, clean, and well stocked with all necessities. Thanks and we will be back in touch next time we travel.
This is the fifth time we have rented an apartment in Rome. Overall we found the accommodation more than adequate. The location and the surrounding area was great and what we had expected. I take it the area was what we were paying for. The greeter was wonderful, the best we have experienced by far! The terrace would be great if the weather were good but, during 9 days we could never really use it to socialize or dine. As it is the major light source it is important. I would recommend Italy Perfect as they are diligent and detail oriented. I think they should change their name - the word PERFECT is hard to live up to. They need to simplify things. The upstairs apartment is noisy and during the first weekend the partying went on and on and we could hear all conversations. When we arrived the garbage in the front hall was appalling. By Monday someone had cleaned it up. There were lots of little things that needed attending to, some of which my husband tried a hand at fixing.
Thank you for your feedback. You're right, the apartment's location and the greeter are great. What a shame that the October weather was unusually wet and cool, so you didn't get the full benefit of the nice terrace. As we caution in 'Our Review' on the website, you did experience some noise from a neighboring apartment, thankfully for only 2 out of your 9 nights which is normal on the weekend in any apartment building. We also caution guests in Our Review that the downstairs front hall is unimpressive, since that is where the building trash cans are located. You indicated it was cleaned up a few days later; that is useful information for other guests to know what to expect. The greeter said you didn't mention anything to her about the noise or anything that needed fixing or she would have attented to this right away. Thank you from the Italy Perfect Team.
Charming courtyard flat by Campo de Fiori
A charming little apartment, perfect for 2 for any length of stay, but also OK for 4 for a briefer stay with two well appointed baths and a fine little kitchen. Its key feature is a central courtyard where at least in summer you take all your meals in its balmy shade. We ate indoors three time over 28 days! Air conditioning and a clothes washer and dish washer provide additional comforts. We stayed a month and loved our little "home in Rome", which is ideally located literally just around the corner from the Campo de Fiori and in the middle of all of Rome's baroque and antique beauty. An elevator is under construction which might make access easier. The flat is on the second floor (third us). Do not be put off by the scrappy front door or the staircase, Romans do not care about that, the apartment is what counts and it is lovely.
The apartment was well-lit, clean, comfortable and beautifully laid out for our family of four. Our favorite feature was the courtyard. Daniella, our greeter, was kind and helpful.
Great location too - with Campo Fieri and Piazza Navona within minutes, restaurants, grocery stores, bakery Forno), banks, espresso and everything you could possibly need....
Don't miss the deli meats and cheese shop at Campo Fieri.
Overall, centrally located and bus transportation is easy to figure out. The 116 starts at Campo Fieri. Other buses stop about a 5 minute walk away.
We strongly recommend this apartment and would like to come back here on a future visit to Rome. Thank you for making out stay so memorable!!
The apartment was spacious and suited us very well.
The apartment was spacious and suited us very well. The location was great and in a pivotal point for all the palaces that we wanted to visit. The stairs were not a problem, however a lift is in the process of being installed. The water pressure for the plumbing was low but I guess that is an issue for the whole of Rome. There are many restaurants in the vicinity and an interesting market with lots of activity. We have already recommended the apartment to friends.
One thing that I forgot to mention was the benefit of having Daniela meet us at the apartment. In addition to updating us about the apartment she gave us a good overview of the surrounding area. Recommendations for restaurants, shops and places of interest were great. She even gave us a guided tour of the nearby environment. Please pass on our thanks to Daniela.
The apartment was in a GREAT location, was very cozy, clean, and we would stay there again.
Pompeo is charming
Stayed in Pompeo through Italy Perfect. Everything good from making the reservation to checking out. Daniela their greeter is extremely helpful and showed us all the features of the apartment and surrounding area. She went above and beyond for us when we had a completely unexpected health emergency. For us, this apartment in the heart of Rome made our trip even more special. You truly feel as if you are a part of things. The apartment is ideal for two people and it's nice having two bathrooms. The small patio is very charming and kitchen is more than adequate. One thing that struck me was that the apartment was immaculate. Linens on bed were crisp and clean and the bathrooms were spotless. Actually, there was not a speck of dirt anywhere. Be aware the hot water tank is small so you cannot take super long showers if you want hot water. While you do go upstairs to get to this apartment, you are not on the top floor. Depending upon who is above you, this can be an issue if you are a light sleeper. We had a family with some rowdy kids for the first part of the week but they all went to bed at a reasonable time so that was not an issue. The latter part of the week however the apartment above us was occupied by people who liked to stay up all night and it was very difficult to sleep. If you are not a light sleeper, this would probably not bother you. The location of this apartment is excellent. There is a family restaurant steps away that we decided was our best meal in Rome. They do not speak english and whatever they are serving that night is what you get which was actually fun. Very nice good and atmosphere. We walked everywhere. No issues with safety or anything else. I would definitely use this rental service again as I feel they are very professional. Everything was as it was presented on the website and we were very pleased with this apartment and of course, Italy was just divine.
Excellent on all counts!
We loved the apartment! Everything about it. I had talked to Pat orginally stating what our needs were and she made suggestions to chose from. Pompeo is perfectly situated for the intense walking/sightseeing we did. It's very quiet inside the building even though you are steps from Campo de Fiori.
The apartment is modern in an Ikea sort of way with updated windows,appliances,bathrooms and heating system. It was rainy alot while we were there but the apt. was always cosy. The layout worked for 2 adults needing abit of their own space.
Pat was very helpful in procuring ride to/from airport and tickets to a gallery in Rome.
i will use Italy Perfect another time!
Don't judge a book by its cover
Entering the front door from the street for the first time, I was really put off by the prospect of carrying my luggage the 40 steps to the apartment. Also, although the common hallway/stairwell is clean and well lit; it is VERY, VERY dingy. I dreaded entering the apartment.
HOWEVER: the apartment itself more than makes up for this handicap in the way it has been refurbished Modern and in its L-shaped layout. The master bedroom and private bathroom are in the short part of the 'L' with a windowed door looking out to the private enclosed terrace. The second (large)bathroom is at the juncture of the 'L' and the large kitchen and adequate den (with pullout) are in the long part of the 'L' which also look out to the terrace, so it is. The large windows provide illumination. There is a handy entranceway where you can hang your coat, umbrella etc before entering the unit.
The place is spotless and there is not one utility or utensil that is missing. (A grocery store is 5 minutes away.) WiFi is fast and stable and you hear NO street noise. The location is EXCELLENT: a VERY short walk (2 minutes) to the Campo di Fiori, which seems to have become a popular rival to the Piazza Navona (also a short walk of 7-10 minutes)for evening dining and people-watching.
We are no strangers to Rome and walk everywhere: (I am 68 and my wife is 62) e.g. The Roman Forum/Trajan's column area is a 17 minute walk. Trevi fountain or Trastevere-are 12-15 minutes (different directions). The Vatican is a 20-25 minute walk. The wonderful thing about your way to anywhere is how engaged you become looking at sites along the way. You don't feel it is a chore to walk anywhere.
I would have no qualms recommending Italy Perfect to anyone. They were professional and prompt in their replies.
A Great Place to Stay!
This very clean, cute apartment is in a perfect location in Rome, close to a lot of interesting, lively sites and activities. Markets, restaurants, ancient ruins, tourist attractions, shopping-all within walking distance from the front door.
The bed was quite comfortable and a real queen size, not a double. The 2 bathrooms were spacious. All the appliances worked well and seemed to be new. The little patio was a nice place to relax. It was a very quite location, no street noise. Neighbours were also quiet.
Italy Perfect is a welcoming, professional company with which to work!
