“Amazing!!”
Reviewed 30 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

This apartment could not be in a better location and the pictures do not do it justice. The views from the rooftop terrace are stunning and not ones you will ever see from any hotel. It was difficult to leave and see the sights, when we wanted to stay in and enjoy the house.

Ortensia made us feel like her house was our house, from welcoming us when we arrived and arranging dinner for us, to insuring we knew where all the best places to visit.

We're already planning our next visit back to Rome and to see Ortensia.

Amazingly enough the photos did not do this place justice. This was simply the most amazing and beautiful apartment my family and I have ever stayed in and we traveled all over the world. The gorgeous and gigantic terrace directly overlooks the Roman Forum and you will honestly be tempted not to leave the apartment. My family of five had more than enough room and we didn't even use one of the bedrooms. The bedrooms were very large, each with an ensuite full bathroom, with the master bedroom having its own terrace. The kitchen was also very large and fully equipped, and there is actually a small refrigerator, ice maker, dishwasher, two hot plates for cooking, plates and utensiles on the rooftop terrace as well so you don't have to go up and down the stairs if you choose to eat and drink on the terrace, which you will do often. As for the host, Ortensia was amazing and she even prepared lunch for our arrival, and was attentive to our every need. She could not possibly have been more helpful, easy to reach or welcoming. You will feel like you are staying in a miniature palace while you stay in this apartment.

“Live like an Emperor in this fantastic home in the Heart of the Roman Forum!”
Reviewed 31 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Why book a hotel when you can have a 5-star stay at this beautiful home - pictures do this place no justice..Stay, experience, and enjoy!
Situated alongside some of the most famous landmarks of Rome, this apartment is more than a place to stay. It brings you back in time to feel the inner presence of what Rome once was and all that it currently has to offer.

Nothing says Rome like seeing the Roman Forum from every window, balcony and the spectacular terrace. Being able to see something so magical at different times of the day will leave you speechless! We enjoyed daily breakfasts, lunches and dinners on the terrace all while enjoying the view. Ortensia made sure we had all the comforts of home even when entertaining on the roof; ice machine, glasses, dishes, and fantastic lighting. Daily maid service was provided to keep our linens fresh and the house looking tidy.
No noisy crowds at night, peaceful neighborhood with San Teo cafe around the corner, Circo Massimo farmer's Market on the weekend, and a short walk from most major attractions to include: Colosseum, Circo Massimo, Roman Forum, Forum of Caesar and Augustus as well as Trajan's Forum and Market - a must see!, Capitoline Museums, and lots of shopping!
Inside and out this property is the best of Rome. From cozy robes and slippers to sipping delicious wine on the terrace; all you'll need is here. So, book your trip of a lifetime and live like a Roman Emperor!

“Excellent MUST STAY apartment”
Reviewed 10 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

If you find this apartment still free for your dates, book this Diamond in the heart of Entire Rome immediately!!! Me and 2 my friends spent here 5 exiting days in May. It was not our first visit to Rome but it was the best one and one of the the main reasons was Ortenzia house. It's realy fully equipped apartment were you can find all you need, from shower caps and slippers to cocktail glasses and 2 different coffee machine. Each of three bedrooms has very comfortable king size bed, ensuite bathroom and air-condition. The house has a unique location. 5 min walk to Capitolini Hill and then 5 min to Piazza Venezia and Via del Corso or 15 min to Coloseo. Also, this place is very secure at night - The General Command of the Traffic Police Office is on the opposite side of the street. And it is very quiet place - I was sleeping with the window open and the only sounds I heard in my room were rear seagull's screaming. Oztenzia and her daughter Francesca were exclusively hospitable! They met us in the apartment and very quickly explain all the details about it. We arrived at 3PM and missed our lunch but in the fridge there was a nice surprise for us. Ortenzia leaved for us complimentary delicious local cheese, salsiccas, biscotti and strawberry. During the hole our stay Oztenzia and Francesca were ready to help us with any questions. Ortenzia also has an excellent staff, they made daily breakfast on the Terrace and daily cleaning for us and they were perfect. Certainly this absolutely wonderful apartment can not be compared with any 5-stars hotel, because the apartment and its fabulous Terrace have a special magic spirit and you will don't want to leave it!!
I highly recommend it to everybody.
