Highs & Lows

  • The daily fresh bread delivery every morning. If there is a place to eat bread everyday, it's here!

  • Really spacious apartments, feels like a real luxury to have so much space.

  • Thoughtful design and art curation, always a plus.

  • Steam showers!!

  • Proximity to the Trevi Fountain, it's a huge plus to be able to go there at odds hours when it's empty.

  • Nicely stocked mini bar and snacks, we had negroni, wine, and champagne which we loved.

  • Comfortable beds and amenities, just the coziest space. We had the best night's sleep here after so many travel weeks, felt spoiled :)

  • The service is impeccable. From airport pick up and drop off to clear communication and attention to detail. Loved meeting Pino!

  • No elevator. Having to carry all your luggage up 6 flights of stairs can be an issue if you’re not prepared. However, the hotel arranged for our bags to be taken up. Also, if someone is differently abled this wouldn’t be as accessible, as the stairs could be an issue.

  • The hotel is located in a busy area. However, you cannot hear much noise, it's fairly quiet upstairs.

Important Bits

  • Type

    Boutique Hotel concept with apartments instead of single rooms

  • Vibe

    Classy traveler's home away from home

  • Location

    In a 17th century building in the heart of Rome, steps away from the beautiful Trevi Fountain

  • Rooms

    7 apartments

  • Arrival Experience

    We were greeted by the owner himself, who also helped bring our luggage up the stairs

  • Future Forward

    I love the fact you get an apartment to yourself. This allows you to settle into the space, move at your own pace, and have a local experience in the city. Having a kitchen is also great, to make my matcha the way I like. Traveling like a local is what I love to do the most. The hotel communicates with you via WhatsApp, so if you need anything at all, they're one call away

  • Music

    Your own! Just like at home

  • Year Opened

    2015

  • Designed By

    Designed and curated by Designed Roman architect Nora P. Contemporary art hangs on the walls, while lacquered tables and stools made of recycled materials by artist Alfred van Escher pepper the living spaces

  • Health & Wellness

    No

  • Food

    The kitchen comes pretty stocked up with dry pasta, marinara, sardines, eggs, jam and toast. You get daily bread delivery in the mornings, plus you have a fruit stand downstairs and endless restaurants steps away

  • Bar, Events & Nightlife

    Outside your door! Since these are apartments, you are responsible for your own nightlife however, the fully stocked mini bar is next level. You are welcome to order anything you would like restocked, I highly recommend the bottled Negroni

  • Minibar & Retail

    Champagne, wine, cocktails, sparkling beverages and more!
