Via dell'Oca, 35 • Rome
Spagna is, perhaps unsurprisingly, focussed around the eponymous Piazza di Spagna. Along with the Trevi fountain, it’s one of the most visited sights in the entire city. Things weren’t always so auspicious – in the 16th century, the area was Rome’s red light district, but today it’s better known for the vine-covered romance of Via Margutta, home to Gregory Peck's impoverished journalist in Roman Holiday. Admire Balthus’s wall-painting techniques at Villa Medici, descend the Spanish Steps (built by the French, named for the nearby Spanish embassy), and visit the designer stores along Via del Babuino - named for the distinctive statue of the Greek deity Silenus. A little to the southeast, you’ll find the Via Veneto, which was immortalised in La Dolce Vita. While still synonymous with the glamorous film stars of the 60s, the street is no longer the social hub it once was, but there’s still a romantic nostalgia attached to it.
Outstanding Property and Host!
We were happy to be among the first to stay in this residence after the COVID-19 pandemic. The apartment is outstanding! Clean, spacious, excellent air conditioning in all rooms, fantastic location, quiet at night, amazing shower. This was perfect for our group of six (three bedrooms, two bathrooms). I highly recommend this property! Eduoardo manages the property and does an outstanding job. Very quick communication before and during the trip. Extremely helpful with anything we needed (e.g., airport transfers, advice on restaurants, questions about the property). When there was a small problem with something in the apartment (which is natural because it had not been used during the pandemic), he came within an hour since he lives nearby. Eduoardo is the type of person who takes extreme pride in his job and is such a positive person.
Fantastic Apartment and Location, Even Better Host!
The apartment is exactly as pictured — wonderfully comfortable and roomy, with very modern and beautiful kitchen, both rooms, and laundry. The location is perfect. Steps from the Piazza di Popolo, around the corner from a collection of reasonably priced and friendly restaurants. Just a few yards from the best gelato at Grachhi. And two block from a very well stocked mini market, and another block away from a full Carrefour supermarket. The nighborhood is family friendly, safe, and delightful at night. As wonderful as the apartment is, the host Edorado Gallo is what makes staying in this apartment the most wonderful experience we have ever had in a rental, on any continent. Edoardo is extremely knowledgeable and connected to the best tour guides, chefs, restaurants, and sites within and beyond Rome. His sincerest desire to to serve you as would a concierge at a luxury hotel. He was particularly helpful in working with the gluten allergy of our son - suggesting markets and restaurants where he could get the best gluten free pizza, pasta and dairy free ice cream. The private tour guides he facilitated were all wonderfully capable and friendly. One in particulate, Marta Polumbi, was exceptionally friendly, warm, and knowledgeable about all things Rome, and worked very hard to make things relevant to our 13 year old son. We now consider her a friend of the family. In short, if the fee is within your budget, you definitely should take this apartment, and work with Eduardo. If you do, I believe you will have as magical a trip as we did.
Immaculate apartment in a great area of Rome!
The apartment was gorgeous. There were three bedrooms with actual King-sized beds and a large shower in the master bedroom - just through a large walk-in closet. A washer and a dryer were available in a little room just off the master bedroom. Clothes also dried very well there on racks during the daytime. And for those also with a teenage boy that just needs Netflix after a very full day around the ruins - yes the flat screen has a dongle. But, as another reviewer mentioned, Edoardo is outstanding. He is a very polite, helpful and organized man. We had been communicating for 6 months prior to our vacation as I was not getting what I wanted with my travel agent. He works with a tour company and arranged the tours for our family, working out all the details quickly. He also arranged transportation to the airport for our departure. Ten minutes prior American Airlines canceled our flight home and I was unable to use my phone to make a call. Thankfully Edoardo let me us his. I would definitely stay at this property again in the future, or perhaps the other property managed by Edoardo. If you are a picky person with very high expectations, this is the place for you.
LUXURY apt in PRIME location! AMAZING hosts!! A++++
This luxury apt was impeccably clean, tastefully decorated with antiques, and was in prime location to all major Rome sites - most within walking distance! What an incredibly peaceful place to stay. We felt truly pampered in the spa like baths and very comfortable in the beautifully appointed kitchen with high end upgrades. But the best part of our stay were our wonderful hosts, Edoardo & Daniele!! They couldn't have been nicer! They were so welcoming - especially to our 5 young children - and immediately made us feel more like family than guests. They were ready to help us with any requests we had from the moment we first booked our reservation months ahead, to the very last day we were there. Their apartment was was just steps from Piazza Del Poppolo and within easy walking distance to Spanish Steps, Pantheon, the Vatican, amazing restaurants and fabulous shopping on Via Corso. We felt pampered in this luxurious apt which was in a very secure building. Our only regret is that we did not stay longer, but definitely plan to return on our next trip and stay for many more nights! We HIGHLY RECOMMEND this apt and it's gracious hosts!!! 5 STAR!!! A+++++++++++
Sometimes things too good to be true...are true!
First, everything everyone has said about the quality of this apartment and its location is true. However, I wish to add something about the extraordinary care and attention that Edoardo and his family provided for me. Unfortunately, I had a fall while visiting, unnerving in any context, but particularly in a foreign country when you don't speak the language. Edoardo responded to an urgent email immediately, arranged the ambulance and then followed me to the hospital where he stayed for the entire five hour A and E marathon, acting as intermediary and translator. He then arranged a taxi back to the apartment and checked later that I was OK...he simply could not have done more and I am eternally grateful to him and his family for their help and support when I need it most. No five star hotel could have or would have done more.
Vacation of a Lifetime In Rome
My family and I had the true pleasure of staying at this lovely apartment conveniently located right around the corner from Piazza Del Popolo. I must admit that when I found this property on VRBO, I was a bit skeptical because of all the fantastic reviews the property and owner consistently received. I can tell you, from our experience, that all the reviews were completely true and very accurate. From the moment we booked the apartment, Edoardo made the whole process seamless and was extremely responsive to all questions (and there were alot). He assisted with coordinating all of our tours, recommended restaurants, set-up transportation to and from the airport in Rome and when we had questions during our stay, Edoardo responded within minutes to our needs. I have never experienced anyone who cares so much for his clients and goes above and beyond to make you feel like a local. As for the apartment, it was exactly as advertised. The apartment is located on a very quiet street but strategically placed right next to all the action. From the apartment you can walk to all the major sites within Rome. As soon as you enter the apartment, you really appreciate the effort that Edoardo has put into making this feel like your Roman home. The furnishings are well appointed, there is a fully functional kitchen (which we took advantage of for breakfast every day), and the three bedrooms are really nice and the beds were very comfortable. Pharmacy, supermarket, restaurants, gelato and general shopping are moments from the apartment. The tour company that Edoardo partners with for his clients was excellent. The tour guides are all very well educated, have a tremendous grasp on Roman history and really help you understand the most important parts of the sites visited. We started with the Ancient Rome Tour (with Michela), went on the Vatican Relax Tour (with Elisa), Borghese Gallery Tour (with Katie a transplanted Californian) and we finished with the Catacombs Tour (with Dennis). Each and every tour was spectacular and very insightful for my 13 and 16 year-old children. The guides kept each tour interesting and they were all very engaging professionals. Overall, I would highly recommend this property and I look forward to staying at Edoardo’s second property in Rome when we return.
Amazing property - Amazing Service
WOW – We truly enjoyed our three night stay in this exceptional luxury 3 bedroom – two bath rental in the middle of everything in Rome = and around the corner from the Spanish Steps. Trevi Fountain etc…I have a lot to say about how well appointed the apartment was,,, Large bedrooms, huge master bath – foyer, kitchen with a breezy window and living room- But what really stands out for this apartment rental was Edoardo Gallo – the youthful owner who made this so easy/ breezy and helpful. From the minute I contacted Edoardo, months before our rental, he responded right away. I was able to email him from my work email (a lot) in the states and get quick and specific info and help … For example = we took him up on his offer to use a van service that he knew of for a transfer from the airport to his apartment. And I was so glad (as we were traveling with our 87Yr old aunt)... so right as soon as we got through the baggage area – there was our transfer person waiting - Easy! (The apartment is in an area just around the corner from a taxi “stand” and there is a way to drive to it –but again – we needed the easy way – and we got it) We needed more coffee pods for the wonderful Nepresso machine – voila – email to Edorado and there they were! Also, I told Edoardo that I needed to have the three of us to see Vatican museum/ St Paul’s and it was getting difficult to get the reservations etc. He offer to help with a private guide ~ which was wonderful – ( he was a great guide and we zipped in and saw and got out three hours later ~just what we wanted ) But the BIGGEST help that afternoon – (at the Vatican tour) was Edoardo’s extraordinary help. Here is what happened…(by no fault) my husband’s work/life/ personal iphone fell out of his pouch into the cab as we exited the cab at the Vatican – … This was realized just as the cabbie pulled off-- (everyone ran after the cab but missed her ) – W e all tried and tried calling etc… but nothing – we didn’t know that cabbie or name or anything ,,, So-- In this chaos - I emailed Edoardo = HELP! and while we were touring the Vatican– he repeatedly called my husband’s cell – and then got the lady cabbie – connected with her and got my husbands’ phone back right as we ended the three hour tour AMAZING! What service ? Not even the Ritz Carlton or other high end hotels would have invested that kind of time to help us….I would stay with Edorado in Rome again even if I only “NEEDED” a smaller place!! Love it!
Excellent Accommodations and Location!
We stayed at this property for our Christmas Holidays. Traveling from NY to Rome. This was a much better option than a hotel for a family of 4. We were all together, yet we had our own beautiful rooms. We were worried as this was our first international VRBO, and thought the pictures may not represent the actual accommodations. However, in this case THE PICTURES did NOT lie! The accommodations were updated, beautiful and elegant. We were very comfortable, having our own rooms, kitchen and lounging area. Simply beautiful! If that is not enough of a recommendation, working with Eduardo was an absolute pleasure. Eduardo was incredibly responsive to any and all of our questions with regard to what to bring (i.e. hand held blow/hair dryer was in room, linens, etc.). It was all there! He also arranged for transfers to and from the airport for us which were on time and reliable. This was an amazing location where we could walk to every tourist and local attraction. One word will sum up our vacation at this location and the staff -- particularly Eduardo. PERFECT! Highly recommend and we will be back.
Amazing flat, great location, excellent host!
Amazing flat, great location, excellent host. Me and my family stayed at the flat for 4 nights. It was my parents, my 2 brothers and my wife and 6 month daughter. The flat is so spacious and well proportioned that everyone had plenty of their own space. Edoardo kindly provided a cot for our baby. Our ensuite bedroom was ideal for family with young baby. The flat is renovated to great standards and taste. The location is fantastic. Very close to the Piazza del Popolo, the Spanish steps, the historic centre, the Vatican. Exactly what you want if you want to experience Rome and be able to wander around and enjoy the city centre. There are a lot of restaurants and cafes/bars nearby. Edoardo was a great host. Very friendly, helpful and discrete. He waited for us and informed us about the area and the flat. He arranged for our car transfers from/to the airport. He even booked for us table at restaurants that he suggested. Excellent flat and host. Thank you very much for everything. You are doing a great job! All the best!
Wonderful apartment in the heart of Rome
Our family of four (two being teens) thoroughly enjoyed the apartment. The apartment was spacious, extremely clean and welcoming. All of the surfaces (cabinetry, flooring, showers, kitchen appliances, etc.) are new and up to modern luxury standards. As for storage in the master bedroom, I've never seen a better closet in Europe! It was wonderful. The washer and drier are full sized and separate units which work very well. A hair drier was also provided as well as adequate linens. Our two teenagers enjoyed having their own private bedrooms with queen sized beds at the end of our busy days touring. The proprietor was very responsive and helpful. We had a small issue with low water pressure in one toilet and he came immediately to look into the situation. He also arranged a driver to pick us up from the airport and to take us back again at the end of our stay. He drove a nice sized van with plenty of room for us and our luggage. And lastly, the location of the apartment was ideal for us. Just off the Piazza del Popolo, we found lovely restaurants, shopping, banks, markets and a metro within a five minute walk or less. Even so near the activity, the apartment was very quiet, even on New Year's Eve (except for a few fireworks right at midnight, which was lovely). My family would very happily stay at Municipio 1 again. We tossed our coins into the Trevi Fountain to ensure another visit to Rome in the future, so hopefully we will have the opportunity.
Great stay in Rome
The perfect apartment for our 4 night stay in Rome. The apartment is in a great location on a street just off Piazza del Popolo. Very secure building with a beautiful old but reliable lift. Three good sized bedrooms and two bathrooms. The bathroom and kitchen fittings were modern. For those unable to walk easily there is a taxi rank around the corner and a good selection of restaurants in the immediate area. I would not hesitate to stay here again on my next visit
We had a wonderful weekend staying in the apartment. The place itself is very comfortably close to the city center. The new kitchen will suit perfectly for breakfast. There are a great load of small cafes nearby which once again are a great accessory for a "lazy" stay, if you are not willing to cook nor to go far to eat. The apartment itself has a master bedroom and two smaller bedrooms with two king-size beds. The two bathrooms are modern and stylish. It would be a perfect fit for a holiday in Rome!
Terrific location and great for families!
We very much enjoyed our time at this property. The property’s location was perfect - with numerous historical sites within easy walking distance. The apartment itself was great. The 3 bedrooms were spacious, and everything in it was clean and modern. Large bathrooms, and while the kitchen is on the smaller side, we were able to easily made breakfast every morning. Kitchen was well stocked with just about everything needed to cook up proper meals. Edoardo was very helpful, and even arranged a taxi to pick us up from the airport. Would definitely recommend to anyone. This was a great apartment for our family of 4.
Eduardo was the perfect host and the property was clean, beautiful, and in a perfect location. It is on our list for booking again in 2021!
Thanks for a wonderful time, Edoardo.
We had a wonderful experience staying in Edoardo's apartment. Communication before our arrival and throughout our stay was immediate and Edoardo arranged for transportation for our family of four to and from the airport in a spacious van. He met us at the apartment and went through every detail to make sure we'd be comfortable. The apartment is lovely, spacious, immaculately clean and very comfortable. The bathrooms are spacious and modern and the kitchen, is perfectly serviceable for a cup of coffee before heading out for the day. The neighborhood might well be the best part. It's quaint, charming and walkable to much of the city. There are wonderful restaurants, cafes and upscale shopping in the immediate vicinity. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Edoardo's apartment and highly recommend it.
Perfect Say in Rome! Highly Recommended!
My family of 5 (3 kids) just spent 4 great nights in Rome at Edoardo's Piazza de Popolo apartment. Everything about the stay was first class - from the condition of the apartment, the location, ease of check-in/check-out.....everything. We loved the location next to Piazza de Popolo - close walk to everything but not "too close" so that you're in a sea of tourists. On top of it all, Edoardo is a huge help for your visit in Rome....he booked our ride to the airport, Colosseum & Vatican tours, as well as our driver to Positano. We would reserve agin with Edoardo in a heartbeat - thanks!! Cunningham Family
Everything was perfect
I don't know what was better-the beautiful property or Eduardo's great service. Prior to arrival, Eduardo communicated often with us to be sure of our timetable and what we hoped to do in Rome. He personally met our transfer van and took as much time as we needed to tour his perfect apartment. At the last minute we decided to make changes in some of the tours he helped schedule, and he handled it all without any problems. All of his scheduled drivers and tour guides were right on time and were true professionals. The apartment was perfect for our family of two adult couples. The master bathroom has a huge walk in closet and a shower that has to be seen to be believed. The other two bedrooms shared a large bathroom. Everything was immaculately clean and worked perfectly. The modern kitchen met all of our needs, although we did not use it for cooking as there were too many great restaurants nearby. The location is perfect, with major attractions and restaurants within easy walking distance. Part way through our stay Eduardo had his assistant stop by to see if we needed anything and to help us with the procedures to be used upon departure. If you plan to be in Rome, this property will satisfy even the most difficult to please renters. Bravo, Eduardo!!
Slice of heaven
This property was 1000 times more beautiful and comfortable than we ever imagined. My husband, son and I stayed with my parents. The location was perfection, the tours Eduardo helped us with were out of this world also. This was my first VRBO experience and I think nothing else will ever compare! You will not regret staying in this apartment and you’ll want to share this gem with anyone you know visiting Rome. Grazie Eduardo for helping me plan my favorite trip ever!
Location was fabulous. Great restaurants nearby. pleasant stay within the spacious apartment. Master bathroom and bedroom excelling in space and comfort. large living room and kitchen area. Very Accommodating for our seven night stay would highly recommend this place in the future and will be coming back. Thank you eldoardo for all of your attention and cooperation.
A wonderful experience
There were six of us. 2 grandparents,2 parents and 2 children aged 6&9. All had a great time. Excellent location. Very family oriented appartment. Mainly we had breakfast in the very well equipped kitchen. Our host, Edoardo is excellent. He went above and beyond the call of duty to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Enjoyed the private tours arranged by Edoardo as well as the limo rides from the airport to the appartment and from the appartment to our cruise location , also arranged by Edoardo, after spending 3 wonderful days in Rome.
Great place in Rome!
We have only positive reviews for this unit for our family of 6. The place is large and roomy, so unusual in Europe. Big beds, beautiful bathrooms, and a nice kitchen equipped so you don't have to rush right out to the grocery. The beds are nice and big with extra pillows. Easy check in and out. Edoardo is extremely helpful and super quick to respond to any questions that come up. It's very nice to have a contact that you can get in touch with immediately. He also scheduled all of our tours, which were excellent. I highly recommend this unit or any of Edoardo's properties.
