The apartment was comfortable, and the location...wow! Fantastico!
A pleasant and comfortable apartment in a very Roman setting.
This location has every advantage and charm of the center of Rome. Very close to splendid Piazza Navona, mideaval streets lead you along Via dei Coronari to this vine-draped side street. Via dei Coronari is known for its antique shops and nearby Santa Maria del Pace with its stage-like baroque facade and famous cloisters.
This building dates from the 1500s. This palazzo was owned by Cardinal Giuseppe Antonio Sala (1762-1839), who was an official in the church hierarchy and also the Cardinal of beautiful Santa Maria della Pace church that is just around the corner. His legacy was to give an apartment to each woman in his line. This apartment is the last of such gifts; the owner is the last woman in his line having borne only a son. The central courtyard of the building has an even older design, reflecting the layout of ancient Roman apartment buildings. There are internal balconies on each floor and the apartments are entered from the balconies. Fortunately, the size of the courtyard allowed for an elevator.
Enter into the large living and dining room that opens onto pretty Via del Arco della Pace. A sofa and armchairs provides seating for all guests. Some nice pieces of art decorate the walls. A glass topped dining table seats 4. Facing the sofa is a hutch with television (Italian channels only) with a DVD player.
From the living room, enter a hallway that passes the kitchen and onto the bedroom area.
The kitchen is small but complete with oven, stovetop, microwave, larger refrigerator/freezer, toaster and Italian and drip coffee makers.
The living room is air conditioned but the bedrooms are not. This old building with its thick stone walls and front-to-back windows means that it ventilates well and will be comfortable most of the year if you do as the Italians do.
One bedroom has a queen size bed. The other bedroom has 2 single beds that can be combined to form a queen-sized bed. Both bedrooms also are endowed with, unusually, a large closet. The bathrooms are across from the bedrooms and are nicely done with fresh tiles and fixtures. Each has a step-in shower with hands-free nozzles.
A washing machine is in the back bathroom.

Our Guest Reviews
Three of us stayed in the Romulus from Jan 17-24, 2018. We were very comfortable. Our greeter could not have been more friendly and helpful. She was prompt to answer text messages and helped us straighten out a mix-up with our taxi pick up the day we were leaving.
You cannot beat the location. Located right outside the Piazza Navona, it's an easy walk to everything Rome has to offer. There are great shops and restaurants all around you. The building itself is beautiful.
I found Italy Perfect easy to work with. They were responsive and helpful. There is a nice selection of apartments to choose from and Lisa helped us find the apartment that fit our needs nicely. I would work with them again and would recommend them to anyone looking for accommodation in Italy.

This apartment could not be better situated. It provided us with a perfect location to explore and enjoy Rome. It was well equipped and comfortable as well. We were able to make arrangements to be met at the airport and driven to the apartment, where we were welcomed again. Everything went as smoothly as a dream. We will highly recommend Italy Perfect to our friends!

We loved Rome!
Romulus was everything we dreamed of for a perfect place to stay in the heart of Rome - but feeling like we were tucked away a very short walk to the Piazza Navona. The charming Bramante Renaissance Cloisters were just a step away. They have wonderful art shows and café on the second floor. In fact up and down every street near our apartment were fabulous small restaurants.
The apartment itself was terrific. Everything we needed was there - and more. Kitchen small but very well equipped. Furniture was very comfortable (I often think European couches and beds are not good - but this was perfect) Another good thing - the lighting was excellent in living room, bedrooms and bathrooms. This was the kind of place I could stay for a length of time as it was very comfortable. Such fun to stay in an apartment building where many people live all the time. I felt part of the scene!
We did have a favorite restaurant - and went twice. It is short walk from Pantheon so not far away. Try Osteria del Sostegno. One of those fantastic places at the end of a side alley.
[Thank you Barb, we are pleased you enjoyed your stay! The Italy Perfect Team]
Our stay was short but the location made it convenient to be able to walk and see many sights and have a wide choice of Italian restaurants. The apartment was perfect for two couples and we found it to be very clean and furnished very nicely. We would highly recommend this location and apartment to anyone visiting Rome. We found Italy Perfect to be very easy to work with and furnish any information needed.
[We agree with you completely! The Italy Perfect Team]
Our greeter Danielle was great - met us at the apartment upon arrival, walked us through the apartment showing us how everything worked and leaving restaurant recommendations. The apartment location was fantastic - beautiful small street just a block from Piazza Navona. Wonderful little cheese shop at the end of the street where we picked up small grocery items.
My only critique of the apartment was the trash collection each morning around 7 am. The trash collectors needed to get into the building and would ring the buzzer on each apartment every morning until someone would buzz them into the building. Sometimes it would take a couple of rings before someone would let them in. It was a rude awakening every morning! Street noise was high however we were there over Easter at a busy time in a busy area so not surprising. All in all, a great experience and I would do it again (without the buzzer each morning!).
[So glad Daniela and the location were fantastic. Nice to know about the cheese shop!
Sorry about that buzzer for trash collection. This is the case with every building in the center of Rome. The only solution we have found is to disconnect the buzzer system and then, if guests have visitors who can't buzz when they arrive, then there is a different problem!

We loved this apartment.
It made visiting in the evenings so much more cozy and pleasant.
Wonderful location and our great operator was extremely thoughtful and thorough.
We hope to come back someday soon.
Lovely Slice of Rome
We had a delightful family week in the Ronulus apartment. In a quiet lane close by the Piazza Navona - we were in walking distance to pretty much everything in Rome. The apartment had absolutely everything we needed - in a lovely building.
Highly recommend this as great accommodation for a family.
We have had a wonderful time in your beautiful city of Rome!
There is so much to do and to see - and the food - wow.....!
After our busy days, it was lovely to come back to this apartment.
It is pretty, clean and comfortable!
Until next time ......
Great place to stay to enjoy Rome; can't think of anything I didn't like or would want to change. The greeter was awesome.
[We all thank you for your kind review! The Italy Perfect Team]
The apartment was in a unique location and very central to the old part of Rome. The greeter was extraordinarily helpful! There was a grocery close by as well as taxi's and restaurants. The kitchen was small but had everything you needed. The living area, dining area, bathrooms and bedrooms were also basic but had what you needed.
On the not so great side,the beds were hard and the sheets were rather rough. We also had a problem with a lot of noise well into the night from the streets below. It also seemed that the owner never stayed there as it was absent those types of personal touches we found in many other apartments during our time in Italy. It will suite your basics, but it was very noisy and did keep us awake at night.
We did find that Italy Perfect was very helpful and very prompt in replying to e-mail which was great!
[Thank you so much for your review and compliments! Your greeter is the best. And, that location is so wonderful. It is true that is a popular area, so there are people passing through the streets. Not much in the way of auto traffic, however. For city-center locations, we put a white-noise app on our smart phone, really helps. And, yes, Italian beds can be firm. Please come again.
