"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
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.

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.

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.

A perfect apartment in Rome
The Renata apartment was perfect for our recent visit to Rome. The location is fantastic, right in the center of the best shopping, plenty of restaurants and wonderful sites like the Spanish Steps. This is our second time staying in this apartment and we loved it. I would definitely recommend Italy Perfect for those looking for apartments in Italy.
[Thank you Lisa, we look forward to welcoming you back again! The Italy Perfect Team]
This is the best area to stay in Rome. So much life. Stores and restaurants everywhere. Close to most of the sites but we just took taxis everywhere. I couldn't imagine staying anywhere else in Rome. Check in was a little stressful. The driver couldn't get ahold of Marcella and he couldn't speak English so he just dropped us off at the front door without explaining anything. Here we are in the middle of the street with a locked door and no one to let us in. I decided to call the houseman and he answered immediately and let us in. Turns out Marcella was away on holiday and we were early. It worked out but I should have called myself immediately upon landing. So call the houseman, he seems to be there all the time. The violinist is a little annoying because he plays the same thing all the time and he clearly is playing for money instead of getting money for playing. There was an opera singer there one day so that was nice. The city does start a little early so sleeping in is hard but you shouldn't be sleeping anyway. As for the apartment, you should be aware that it is cold in part of the house. We were there in the winter and it does get cold but we are from FL so everything is cold to us. There is no vent in the kitchen or the back bathroom so be prepared. The rest of the house gets warm. The restaurant list was great to have. We just went down the list and tried them all. The best was Babette. The service presentation and food were outstanding. The worst was Ginger. They are trying to be some new age Italian restaurant but the service was slow and the food wasn't that good.
[We are delighted you found this the best place to stay in Rome. Very pleased the restaurant list served you well. It sounds like you found the house comfortable once you got used to the Italian idea of heat as we explained in your information that the government controls the hours that heat may be on. We are sorry the driver didn’t know to call the houseman when he couldn’t reach Marcella, fortunately you had the houseman’s number on your arrival information and the initiative to call it! We contacted the service and it seems there was a language problem, the driver thought you said you were good because you had the houseman's number.]
4 perfect days in Rome
We absolutely loved this apartment. This is my first stay with Italy Perfect, so I can't compare it to their other apartments, but we really enjoyed this apartment. The location is so central, we walked everywhere. We enjoyed coffee shops and restaurants right down the street. We were traveling with another couple and the bedroom room layout provided lots of privacy. We felt like we got to experience more how local people live versus a hotel room.
[So happy you enjoyed your stay. The Italy Perfect Team]
Enjoy your stay!
