"It exceeded our expectations and was so very comfortable and beautiful."
On the corner of Via Condotti in Rome, the Renata apartment is in the heart of all that is elegant in the Eternal City. A two minute walk puts you in front of the Spanish Steps, a location that is so popular because it is so central. Stroll for 15 minutes and you can find yourself at most of the noteworthy sites of historic Rome.
The location is perfect with wonderful restaurants and shopping. Centrally located. A very safe neighborhood.
The building mirrors the neighborhood, a proper "palazzo" built about 250 years ago when the Princes Torlonia were amassing their fortunes by managing the fortunes of the Vatican and built the palace across the street.
The apartment is on the third floor (second, European designation) and adjoins the Valentina apartment that, if available, can be rented at the same time to sleep up to eleven people, one of whom would occupy the sofa-bed in Renata. For a large family or group there is also the Zegno apartment two floors up.
Spacious and quiet elegance typify this fine apartment. Two large windows light the living room overlook Via Bocca di Leone.
The apartment was spacious, well laid out and decorated.
Two white sofas are grouped by the working fireplace that features stonework from the ancestral home in southern Italy. The hand-hewn ceiling beams have been exposed to display the room as it was originally designed. Also in the living room are some fine antique pieces, a sideboard, and a dining table that will seat six. The living room has a television with satellite reception. The apartment is wired for high-speed internet.
The flow is from the entry to living room or to down the hall to one bedroom. Off of the living room, one enters a small hall that leads to either the second bedroom or the kitchen.
The floors are tile with carefully selected patterns.
From the entry way, you can enter a bedroom suite that has twin beds that may be combined as a dual-king. The room has a set of square-framed antique prints above the bed and across the room the design is balanced with a mirror in horizontal strops. The closet area is great for travelers with spaces for stowing your suitcases and open shelves and rods that keep your items in view. The closet leads to a bathroom with a jacuzzi tub with shower. A foldaway single hassock bed can be provided in this bedroom for the 5th person.
Through the living room, you enter the second bedroom with a brass bedstead for the queen-sized bed. This bedroom has an ensuite bathroom with a fixed shower head over jacuzzi tub. This bedroom has a special feature, a small study with a private balcony.
The kitchen is equipped with a four burner stove top, oven, dishwasher, small refrigerator/freezer, Nespresso coffee maker, microwave, dishes, flatware, pots and pans.
The back bedroom was very quiet. Kitchen was great, as well as the bathrooms and the beds were extremely comfortable.
The kitchen also has its own sunny balcony that is glassed in to form the breakfast area. This pleasant area is great for casual meals. The laundry nook is accessed from this area.
Be sure to ask about our concierge services for itinerary recommendations, reservations and tours.

Our Guest Reviews
The perfect hideaway for exploring Rome!
Renata was everything it was advertised to be! A fantastic location for exploring all of the great historical locales of ancient, Renaissance and modern Rome. Shopping! Dining! Safe! Comfortable!
The apartment itself makes you feel a part of all you came to see. Tastefully decorated with a mix of today and yesteryear...while having modern bath and kitchen facilities.
A huge library of research and reference books that help you understand all you have taken in on any given day.
We'll do it again...and again!

Beautiful and Very Convenient Apartment near the Spanish Steps
After a long transatlantic flight, as the taxi drove us, a family of 5 having 3 grown up children, to the apartment and stopped, we could not believe the incredible location and wonderful street where Renata was located.
The apartment was ample, very well decorated and having a great living room with chimney and high ceilings in each room. The bedrooms were very comfortable, as well as the 2 bathrooms. Kitchen was quite ample.
Upon breakfast we were greeted every day by the nice music of a violinist playing in the corner. Always walking down the steps 3 floors (not wishing to use the period elevator up or down for exercise) and immediately when opening the building door we were in one of the most fashionable streets in Rome, and just 20 mts from Via Frattina.
Marcella was very educated, kind and interested in us enjoying our time there.
Thank you Pat and Madelyne!
[Thank you, kind guest. We look forward to welcoming you again!]
My husband and I loved the Renata apartment. The location near the Spanish Step was perfect and although we were in Rome during a heat wave the apartment's air conditioning held up just fine...which is not always the case in Rome. The preplanning Italy Perfect did was right on target. We also rented the Valentina and Zegno apartments as we had twelve in our group. All the apartments were as advertised, although it's a bit difficult to hear the bell or buzzer in the Zegno apartment as you have to enter past the manager's office and the door was always closed. I had groceries delivered to each apartment in advance, although the grocery store is just a very short 5 min walk and it's easy to go and get exactly what you want. Because we were a large group I made some dinner reservations and these restaurants stood out in the area and treated us well. Al 34 and Il Gabriella. If the adults want to get away AD Hoc is a great place, small and reservations a must. We used Family Twist to arrange our group tours and I can't say enough about them, they were wonderful. I have used Italy Perfect and Paris Perfect and highly recommend them to anyone.

Ideal Flats for a Family Roman Adventure
My family and I spent a lovely 8 days in the Valentina and Renata apartments that form a huge living space for the 8 of us to enjoy. The apartments are comfortable, well appointed and HUGE for this area of Rome. We loved the cozy fireplaces in the living rooms as well as the 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms. What an ideal setting for a family get together. Our host Marcella was delightful as was the greeter Edgard. We felt extremely welcome and cared for. The apartments are quiet even though we are just a block off the Via Condotti. You couldn’t ask for a better location to explore Rome from. There are numerous great restaurants in the area and most major sights are walkable. Italy Perfect has once again made our Rome stay memorable!
[Thank you so much Steve. You are always welcome to come again.]
Great Rome Apartment - Super area below the Spanish Steps
Two single women rented your apartment named “Renata” and so enjoyed our time there. The two bedrooms were spacious and the bathrooms as well. There were numerous one step up or down between the rooms as in many Italian apartments- just an FYI, but once we got used to them, they were no problem.
Nice light from the windows and lovely furnishings. We did not cook but used the fridge for storing breakfast items and Prosecco. However, the kitchen was fully equipped and even had salt, pepper,sugar and a bottle of olive oil and balsamic vinegar for her guests to use.
The owner also had a vase flowers and a bottle of wine as a welcome gift!
The booklet provided by the owner was so well put together and thought out. It answered many questions as to locations of a pharmacy, restaurants and info about each of them, museums and historical places to see, etc. This was fun for us to see what was recommended as we know Rome and have visited many times, but for the novice traveler, it was invaluable!!
The location of the apartment is super for shopping and restaurants and close to taxi stands for ventures further afield.
We would be happy to rent this apartment again and recommend it to others traveling in Rome.
[Thank you Jeanne, we are delighted you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you again! The Italy Perfect Team]
Amazing location! Spacious apartment very clean. We loved loved the proximity to everything. The host was so nice and took the time to explain things. So happy to have stayed there and would recommend to everyone!
[Thank you so much Carla! The Italy Perfect Team]
Renata is a wonderful apartment. Very well located.
Renata is a wonderful apartment. Very well located. You can go to the main Rome attractions on foot. But if you like you can stay in the neighborhood, which is plenty of restaurants and stores and it is also a nice place to walk.
The apartment itself is very comfortable and pleasant with two bedrooms and two bathrooms which made our stay of a couple and a 12 yr boy very comfortable.
The owner and the greeter made a very good job. No complains about that.
So, Renata apartment is a place to come back for sure.
[Thank you so much Gilberto, we are pleased you enjoyed your stay! The Italy Perfect Team]
Lovely stay in an amazing neighborhood
We were greeted by Edgard who was helpful, efficient and friendly. The apartment was clean and nicely furnished. The space was larger than we expected and we all had plenty room to move around. The neighborhood is top notch and central to everything. The grocery store and organic market down the street were A+.
What a fantastic location in Rome! Very spacious apartment near the metro and shops. Besides the dog barkin in the apartment above ( what else do you expect in an apartment) we loved it! The violin player below was incredible.. and when we wanted quiet, the double pane windows worked like a charm. Very responsive owner.. highly recommend!
We loved our stay in the spacious and clean Renata apartment. It is perfectly located and easy to walk everywhere. There are numerous wonderful restaurants and shops steps away.
