Review 5607: Angeli's House, Roman Forum Palace


Review by Mark van der Horst from Belgium

studio apartments near Cavour Metro, Rome


july 2013, 4 nights


We had a great stay at the apartment (with terrace) at Via Leonina. The top floor apartment with terrace is somewhat smaller on the inside than the apartments on the other floors but is very complete - all comfort available -and perfect for two people to stay for a number of days. The terrace is great and is ideal for the morning breakfast and/or evening drinks and dinner or just to sit, read and enjoy the atmosphere. There is even a barbeque to prepare food. It has a great view over the rooftops. The apartments on the other floors are very large and can easily house three or four people for a few days.

The house is perfectly located - five minute walk to the Forum and Colosseum. It is also an ideal location for city walks to various parts of town: Campidoglio at 10 minutes, Campo dei Fiori at 15 minute walk, Spanish Steps (and shopping area) at 15 minutes. Piazza Navona at 20 minutes. Vatican is in walking distance as well as the Trastevere area.

The apartments are located in a fully restored building in a very nice upcoming area. There is a wide choice of small and affordable places to eat (nice pasta for under 10), no tourist traps. Although lively, it is quiet in the evening and one is not disturbed by the traffic on the main roads in the area (Cavour). There are also sufficient shops to buy groceries nearby. A very nice coffee and home made pastry place at the corner for breakfast, try the cornetto with cream or ciambella (Rome's doughnut)! Nice ice cream place nearby on the beginning of via del boschetto, great for a nice digestive gelato at the end of a long day.

We highly recommend staying at this place when you plan to visit Rome for a few days or even for a longer time.
