It is so comfortable!
A comfortable and completely equipped apartment in a convenient location by Piazza del Popolo.
Piazza del Popolo is one of the most beautiful piazzas in Rome. It is entered from the north through a monumental gate in the ancient Aurelian city wall. Laid out in 1859 to serve as the ceremonial entrance to the walled city for visitors and pilgrims arriving from the north, its beauty is still astonishing. An Egyptian obelisk and four Egyptian lions form part of the central fountain. On the steps of the fountain modern-day pilgrims rest their feet and converse. Two monumental and almost identical churches straddle Via del Corso. At first you don`t notice the third church, Santa Maria del Popolo, that may be the most interesting of the three. Santa Maria arose to counter the bad spirit of Nero who was supposedly buried on that spot. Santa Maria contains some really wonderful art, a tomb by Bernini and two original Caravaggios.
The Pincian gardens rise from Piazza del Popolo and flow into the Borghese Gardens, a great place to stroll, jog, rent a bicycle-cart, find children`s park and playground, and, about 15 minutes walk to the wonderful Galleria Borghese.
Three streets lead off Piazza del Popolo, Via Babuino, Via del Corso and Via Ripetta, called the Trident, and lead right into the delights of the center of Rome.
Rome is a walking city and you can take any of these routes to head to different parts of the Eternal city. You can also cross the Tiber River for the Vatican and great shopping.
The immediate neighborhood has all the shops you need. Down just a few doors is Castroni, a great gourmet food shop.
This location is especially good for transportation. The trolley heads north to the Olympic sports stadium and the new MAXXI museum. The subway is a block away and in the same piazza as the subway is a bus transportation hub.
The Orlando apartment is in a fine building from 1870, like many in the neighborhood. It faces Rome`s trolley line and is close to many transportation options: the trolley, the subway, busses and a taxi rank in Piazza del Popolo. There is noise from the trolley which runs from 5:30 a.m. to midnight.
There are a few steps up to the locked stairwell door and elevator.
Orlando`s main door opens into a bright living/dining room that has a sofa (converts to queen sized bed), antique desk, flat screen television. The dining table is oval shaped. Along the entry door wall is a hutch with helpful guides and books. New, sound-cancelling window overlooks wide Via Flaminia and an intersection so no buildings impede sunlight. Trolley runs from 5:30 a.m. to midnight.
Stepping to the right of the entry you find the kitchen, two bathrooms and the second bedroom.
The galley-style kitchen is complete with four burner gas stove top, microwave (no oven), drip coffee maker, tea kettle, toaster, large refrigerator with freezer compartment.
Keep in touch from the Orlando apartment with WiFi, telephone and television with Satellite reception. You can receive a few English language news channels. For guest convenience, find several North American electrical outlets for your dual-voltage personal electronics.
To the left of the entry area is the master bedroom that also has a new window onto Via Flaminia. The high quality queen-sized bed is flanked with night stands with individual lamps. Double closet has mirrored doors.
To the right of the entry area the second bedroom has two single beds, one of which can be stowed under the other if there is a single guest in this room. Double closet. The new window faces Via Flaminia.
The two bathrooms both have a shower, sink and a toilet. The larger bath also has a combination washer/dryer.

Guest Book Testimonials
We three ladies found the Orlando apartment perfect for our needs. The Piazza Populo location provided nearby grocery, specialty deli, convenient cab and Metro access...even a gelato shop next door. The accomodations worked well and came with good instructions. Many excellent restaurants in the area...try Babette at the beginning of via Margutta. Best of all was all the help Pat provided to a less-than-skilled computer user.
I would definitely recommend Italy Perfect!!
[Thank you so much. We are delighted it all worked out so well. Italy Perfect]
The apartment is such a comfortable place to stay, truly this is our best visit ever.
Having traveled often to Europe over many years, Italy is our favorite place to visit. We so much enjoy the people, culture, and of course the food.
We had discussed doing this trip for a long time, having it come true has been special.
The apartment is such a comfortable place to stay, truly this is our best visit ever. We must also point out that the greenery and flowers on the terrace create a very warm welcoming private environment.
But the best memories for us, as always are the Italian people. They always go out of their way to demonstrate their hospitality. We found many such people in the neighborhood and the city. You of course demonstrated this by personally resolving our minor wifi problem!
We already are discussing a return visit within the next 12-24 months. Once we confirm our plan, we hope to be able to spend it again, in your family's lovely apartment.
We felt very much at home.
I wanted to tell you that we very much enjoyed staying at Orlando, in Rome, with its convenient location, tasteful furnishing with comfortable beds, and ample supply of clean plush towels. We felt very much at home. I also wish to thank you for the professional manner in which the rental process was handled. It helped ease the stress of planning our trip to Europe this summer. We left the apartment in good order in early morning of Friday, July 4. Our electricity consumption was minimal as we were out of the apartment all day. We did no cooking, and didn't have the time to use the washing machine. Lastly, I owe Rene Batard an apology, by calling him late in the evening of June 30, to notify him of our arrival on July 1, and then calling him early morning on the day of our departure. Our driver insisted that he pick us up 4 hours ahead of our departure time (11 a.m.), and I wanted to notify Rene when we were vacating the apartment. Other than that, our stay at Orlando went smoothly, and I would certainly recommend it to our friends and family members.
We stayed at the Orlando apartment for five nights in June. We liked the apartment. There is street noise, but we were prepared for that and it didn't bother us. Having two bathrooms was a big plus for our family and the washing machine was a necessity since we had only brought one carryon bag each for a two week trip to England and Italy. The location of the apartment is great, right next to Piazza del Popolo, which is walking distance to Spanish Steps, close to the Borghese Gallery, convenient for both bus service and metro access. We enjoyed being in a building with local residents. The apartment manager was great. He called on our second day to see how everything was going. We mentioned to him that the shower head in the second bathroom was not working. He had someone come that very morning to replace it while we were out. Italy Perfect was very easy to work with. Their office is in the US, which made it convenient to be in touch during the planning stages. They provide a lot of helpful information to renters on all aspects of visiting Rome. I definitely recommend them. When our flight to Rome from London was cancelled and we were rebooked on a later flight through a different airport, Lisa was helpful and prompt in her response to my email asking for assistance.
Orlando Apartment - Rome
The Orlando apartment in Rome was very comfortable and in a very convenient location to wonderful shopping, restaurants and within walking distance of all major attractions. Taxis were also easily obtained very close to the apartment. The apartment was very clean, comfortable and had everything we needed for our stay with our two teenage children. The only thing that was slightly bothersome was the trolley car that ran until midnight and didn't stop until after midnight. It was pretty loud due to how close it is to the apartment and if anyone is a light sleeper it would be difficult to get a good nights rest. Overall it was a wonderful exerpeience and we would highly recommend the apartment to anyone visiting Rome. Thanks! Patty
Our stay in the Orlando apartment was terrific.
Our stay in the Orlando apartment was terrific. What a great location. The apartment was very clean & setup wonderfully with a small, but functioning kitchen with all the necessary items. (except pepper) we forgot to buy some. Great for two couples or a couple with 2 kids. We will certainly recommend to others & for sure would stay there again. The professionalism & service provided by you is impeccable.The Italy Perfect organization & the in depth information provided with our booking of the Orlando Apartment is fantastico. You're leaps ahead of most in your field. Without a doubt should we travel abroad where Italy Perfect covers we will book through you. We have had a seamless experience & our trust in your organization is without question. Thank you for the great service & caring about your customers.
The Orlando apartment was a perfect location. Just off the Piazza del Popolo 1 block away and a great way to start the day walking through the Piazza. Convenient to taxis, restaurants, and gelato. The accommodations were as listed and we felt very safe. Recommend L'Antica Enoteca restaurant nearby for great food and atmosphere. Best tour we took was with EatingItalyfoodtours.com. We took the Testaccio tour with Douglas and it was a highlight of our trip. We highly recommend Italy Perfect for their apartment choices, wealth of knowledge of tours, restaurants, and other helpful tips for traveling.
Thanks so much, Michael. Iwe are enjoying your food adventures with you! The Italy Perfect Team
I very much recommend this area; Piazza del Popolo is very central. We walked pretty much everywhere, and when we did use the metro it was great because the flat is literally steps away from the station. The flat worked out fine for us; it was simple and tidy, and the beds are comfortable. There are some really great restaurants in the area; we especially liked Ginger, Dilla, Resaurant 34.
