What Past Guests Are Saying
Wonderful location and experience!!
The pictures of this accommodation are truly representative and both Natalia and Walter are wonderful and very helpful. They spent some time with us when we arrived to share the best of the best with us and it made our trip so wonderful. The location is truly within walking distance to everything and both myself and my two boys appreciated the comfortable beds, and couches at the end of a long walking day. Campo de Fiori and Piazza Navona are close and there are so many wonderful places to eat and enjoy a glass of wine. I felt imbedded in Rome and we loved every moment of it. I would stay here again in a heartbeat and have already recommended it to others.
Roman charm -- what a wonderful apartment
Natalia and Walter were excellent hosts. Plenty of information provided about nearby supermarket, fruit and veg market, butcher, restaurants and wine bars, and also attractions, including very helpful bus info -- we caught the bus to the Vatican and also the Colosseum with ease thanks to the instructions left for us. Natalia also helped us organise a car with driver and a proper infant seat to transport us to the station through a company called BabyRiders. Natalia checked in with us half-way through our stay, and when we mentioned that we weren't sure how to turn on the heating, Natalia and Walter came to assist within a half hour. Natalia also took the time to help us drop off our hire car to Hertz, and drove my partner back to the apartment. They also provide a mobile phone, so it is easy to keep in touch with them. Overall, great service!
The apartment really felt like a home. Coffee, sugar, cakes and biscuits were left for us to enjoy, and the kitchen and bathroom were functional and easy to use. The view from the bedroom, overlooking the church and the wonderful wine bar Vino e Olio, was charming.
Location was excellent for all Centro Storico attractions (Piazza Navona, Campo de Fiori, Palazzo Spada, Palazzo Farnese (be sure to book that one on the web a few months in advance!), the Pantheon) and wonderful shopping nearby -- clothes, kids clothes, jewellery, books, leather, etc. As above, it was easy to get a bus one block from the apartment to other attractions.
We found the apartment welcoming and beautiful (plus books in English to read, and English-language cable tv), and we were sorry to leave. We look forward to another visit to Rome, and to this apartment.
Wonderful apartment in Rome
Our apartment was spacious and beautiful as well as spotless and Natalie and Walter couldn't have been more hospitable. They arranged a car to pick us up and were waiting for us when we arrived. They spent all the time necessary to give us ideas for our few days in Rome and were available whenever we needed to call and ask a question. We would recommend their place to anyone. Whether in Rome for a few days or a week or more this apartment is worth every euro. Thank you Natalie and Walter. Signed "The Girls".
This was the best apartment our family of four had during our trip to Italy. The apartment was in a great location and the double windows made it very quiet. It also was very cozy and clean. Natalia was extremely responsive and met us at check in. She went above and beyond to explain great places to eat and visit and it was very clear that she wants to spread her love of Rome to her guests. Having her cel phone to use makes you feel confident that she is only a phone call away at any time, should you need her. I highly recommend this apartment.
Charming apartment, fantastic location!!!
From the moment we initiated an email correspondence, Natalia and Walter were accommodating hosts. They took the time to explain all of the important information and answered all our questions promptly. Sadly, we were not able to meet them in person as they were away, but their back-up Stefani was also very helpful. Natalia and Walter arranged a taxi to and from the airport - and that probably saved about 40 euros. Stefani met us at the apartment and took alot of time to explain everything. The free Wifi was great for planning the daily activities and the apartment cell phone came in handy for getting around roaming charges.
The apartment is charming and in a lovely location. The best thing is that everything is within an easy walking distance...the Tiber river is a minute away, the Vatican about 10 minutes, Piazza Navona 10 minutes, the Colosseum about 20 minutes. We really enjoyed exploring all the cobbled streets around the apartment in Campo dei Fiori as there are many excellent restaurants (try Cantina Lucifero), lots of little artisan shops, and a couple of beautiful clothing boutiques. There's a grocery store about 30 seconds away, a beautiful church right across the street, and a cafe right next to it where we had coffee and pastries almost every morning.
The apartment was very clean and more spacious than the online pictures portrayed. The bathrooms really are very small, but there are two so our family of four didn't have any problems coping. There are no elevators but we did see a chair lift that my sons wanted to try out daily rather than climb up two storeys! All of the appliances work well. There is no dryer but there is a clothing rack. We weren't too interested in watching TV, but we did try it one night and couldn't figure out the controls, so if you're hooked on TV, get some instruction at the check-in.
All in all, we highly recommend this apartment and would go back in a second. Thanks Natalia, Walter and Stefani!
Great for a Roman Holiday!
My wife and I and our two children ages 18 and 11, spent 8 days in Rome Nov 2012. The owners of the apartment were very easy to work with. The apartment was very comfortable for our family. The kitchen is very nice, the beds comfortable and the bathrooms were great. Natalia the owner, was very helpful upon our arrival in regards to making us feel at home. She sat down with us for 20-30 minutes explaining the apartment as well as making recommendations for restaurants, shops, navigating the city etc.. Her husband Walter was very responsive to any email questions I had prior to the trip. The transport to and from the airport arranged through the owners worked well. The apartment was clean, quiet and in a great location. There is a small grocery store steps away from the apartment. The bus stop and taxi stand is a 2 minute walk (Piazza della Chiesa Nuova on the Corso Vittorio Emanule). Bankomat machines are plentiful. We walked most places but did find the bus very easy to navigate. I would definitely stay at this apartment again. Thanks Natalia and Walter!

It had a warm cozy feeling that made us feel welcome.
Natalia was very informative and helpful! We were told great places to visit and how to get around. They would help if we needed medical help - which would be very scary in a foreign country. Where to find shopping areas. The location was excellent - very central very safe walking around in the evening. The apartment had everything we needed and it was very clean. I would recommend this place to anyone. You will be happy and very satisified. Just stick to taxi cabs to get around - easier, cheaper and saved alot of time. Stay away from the Hop on Hop off bus system - hard to find and very very time consuming, which is precious on a vacation of a life time like this was. This rental made the week everything we hoped for!!! They also helped us arrange transpotration to and from airport - was a great load off our minds. Thanks Natalia and Walter.
I brought my niece to Rome as her graduation from college gift and we stayed in this apartment. It was very nice and the location was pretty decent. Natalia and her husband are very nice and helpful.
perfect location and hosts
We thought we were rather mad taking a 13 month old to Rome in august but we had a brilliant holiday. The apartment is perfectly situated for walking to everywhere. A bus can be caught a few yards away to the colosseum and Borghese Gallery gardens and zoo for knstance but without a baby these are all easily reachable on foot too. Highlights were the Vatican tour -definitely get a guide and go very early -the Sistine chapel was empty;also train/taxi ride to attend pope's audience at summer residence. Castle Gandolfo is a fab mountain village and audience was extremely moving. Baby friendly restaurants everywhere made it easier. Very well looked after by Stefani who went out of her way to help us with anything we needed to know and do. Apartment felt safe and was very comfortable with two showers a bonus. Perfect size for us -three adults and baby. Would book again tomorrow.

Dear Natalia and Walter,
From the first morning we felt so at home in your lovely apartment. It was just as the photos had shown and a good size for four adults - although the second bathroom really is tiny. We found the location fantastic as we could walk to all the major attractions. By the end of our six night stay we were all sorry to leave.
We would definitely recommend it to our friends -- and have done so already:)
Will be in touch for our next holiday in your beautiful city.

Great apartment, Very Central
It was obvious from the reply to my initial email enquiry that Walter and Natalia were going to be extremely helpful. They replied promptly to any questions I had and the apartment met all our expectations. It was very central being near the Campo de' Fiori and despite the 36deg heat we managed to walk everywhere. The apartment itself was very clean with plenty of space and very well equipped. Initial problems with the air conditioning were sorted out very quickly. My only regret was that I didn't get to meet Walter and Natalia as they were away on holiday. However, their friend Stephanie was fantastic and made sure that we had everything that we needed. We certainly hope to return one day.
Great location, nice apartment
I booked this property to travel with my parents and aunt in august 2012. Natalia and Walter were not available the week we stayed there but Stephanie was there to assist us with check in and give us a full guidance on the apartment.
The apartment was central to Campo de Fiori, Piazza Navona and the Vatican. We just walked to most places. In the cases when we needed to take the bus, chiasa nouva bus stop could be reached in less than a 5 min walk (the owners have laminated bus numbers and addresses that you can use). Tip: 40 express bus is usually empty and frequent to use to get to termini.
A grocery store Carrefore is very close to the apartment, less than a five min walk.
A/C worked great and the apartment is fully equipped. Wi-fi and English cable was good.
Having a mobile phone available to contact Stefanie was very handy. We had two minor issues that Stephanie resolved very quickly.
There is no lift in the building and the stairs are a bit steep. We knew this in advance. . This was not a problem for our group since everybody is very mobile.
We used the taxi booked by the owners. It worked great. Timely and courteous.
All in all, we are happy to recommend this place.
Wonderful apartment wonderful people
We (4 adults and a five year old) stayed here while visiting Rome. Walter met us and gave us a terrific orientation to the apartment and Rome in general. He arranges transportation for our friends from the airport and for all of us to the train station when we left. He provided maps and went over routes to take and places to visit, suggested restaurants which were great. He is very knowledgeable about the area and gives great advice and we were happy we followed it. The apartment is very convenient to the Coliseum and the Forum and some beautiful churches. When I left my camera in a taxi Walter was very helpful in helping communicate with the authorities and referring me to a great place to purchase a replacement at a reasonable price. The apartment is exactly as shown, clean roomy bedrooms and very neat. The neighborhood is safe and has many wonderful shops and restaurants with friendly people. We would definitely stay here again.
Wonderful apartment to rent
Campo dei Fiori met all of our expectations and more. The service provided by Stephanie was excellent. She was at the apartment on our arrival, explained everything we needed to know about the apartment, advised us on places to see and restaurants to eat at. She organised our transport back to the airport also. The apartment is in an excellent location - we could walk to everything. Beautifully decorated and very secure. Would definately stay here again if in Rome.
Our best rental of many good ones in Europe.
Natalia and Walter are exceptional: from ease of booking to very thorough orientation on arrival--both to apartment and to Rome--to the leaving of a cell phone for instant contact with them should you have any questions at any time...and they mean it. You are made to feel extremely secure. Location is brilliant: very central, could walk everywhere from it, lots of good restaurants + Campo Fiori daily market. Apartment comfortable and well equipped with lots of supplies both for breakfasts and laundry, etc. Strong showers with plenty of hot water. Wonderful mattresses in both bedrooms. Despite central location, absolutely quiet at night. [Double glazing works!] We wish we'd had more than 2 weeks to stay and hope to return. V. highly recommended.
Very comfortable apartment in excellent location
I spent 10 days in this lovely apartment, mostly on my own but with a friend for a couple of days. The bedroom was bright, comfortable and light, and quiet despite being on a busy street. I loved having the spacious entry hall to put keys, packages, books... felt very homey. The kitchen was spacious and well equipped; although I didn't cook much, I did prepare dinner from some of the wonderful produce that I bought at the local markets, and enjoyed having coffee, snacks, etc there. There was always plenty of hot water, and good water pressure as well.
The service from Natalia was wonderful; she met me at the apartment and gave me a thorough introduction to the various appliances (including the amazing sky TV). She also had lots of information for me on the neighborhood, which is a truly lovely and convenient part of Rome. As I was mostly on my own, I appreciated that the street seems to have foot traffic until rather late in the evening, so I never felt uneasy coming home fairly late (although I was not out after 11pm).
The living room was very comfortable, with two couches, lots of light for reading, and the famous TV with any movie you could want to watch, in either English or Italian.
The building is historic, which means it is old, and so there is no elevator. The apartment is on the second floor, up a total of 33 steps; they are not the most beautiful aspect of the building, but I am 70+ and had no problem going up and down.
Overall, I was more and more impressed over my stay with the efforts the owners had clearly made to hae their guests feel at home: Lots of light for reading, lots of supplies laid in for convenience (detergents for washer and dishwasher, paper goods, spices, olive oil and vinegar, water..) When I mentioned to Natalia that I had found everything I could possibly need in the apartment except potholders, she turned up the next day with potholders!
Rome is marvellous
We had a wonderful week in Rome, and Your flat in Via dei
Bancchi Vecchi is very close to a lot of the main things.
However, we find the flat a little messy, a lot of books
and old brochures were lying all over the flat, and several of the lamps did not function, f.ex. we could not
use the on lamp on the table in the minor sleeping room
due to the installed WiFi Internet.
Furthermore there were a lot of more or less used foodware like butter, marmelade etc. It is all right to
have a few things in the fridge, but we never touch things that already has been opened by earlier visitors.
These are however, minor complaints, and they could not spoil our general impression of another marvelous holiday.
Response from Natalia - 01/13/2012
Dear Peter, here Natalia and Walter from Rome. We would like to wish you an happy and healty 2012. We have just been through your review and we are a little surprised to know that you were not completely happy about your last accomodation. We apologize for the used foodware like butter and marmelade left opened in the little basket in the fridge. It never happened before, it seams like the cleaning lady forgot to check - I will remark that to her. About "several"(???) lamps not working: you know that in high season we have a change over so frequent that sometime we don't have time to check everything. This is the reason whay we leave a cellular phone in the apartment so guests can call us for any inconvinience and give us the opportunity to provide immediately. You stayed in our flat for an entire week, why didn't you call us and let us know about the incovinience? Also we provide free wifi and, as you know, we are always connected, we are a kind of "on call concierge" .You found the flat messy for books and brochures left all over. I always inform my future guests to avoid to carry heavy guide's books in their suitcases because they will find several in the apartment. I like to leave them here and there, few in the living room, few in the entrance hall, few in bedrooms, so guests can read about Rome in any moment. We were not expecting from a friend like you are (you are one of our returning guest most welcome) to find written and published this complain and sincerely we were most likely expecting that you could
inform us while you were in Rome and give us the chance to avoid any little inconvinience. Any case, you are one of our most welcome guests and we hope to see you again in Rome in the future. Natalia and Walter
Dolce Roma is la Dolce Vita!
Everything you read online about Dolce Roma is 100% true! This is a lovely apartment in a historic building located within quick walking distance to the historic sights of Rome such as the Piazza Navona, Pantheon and Trevi Fountain. The Vatican is a 10-15 minute walk.
Natalia and Walter are excellent hosts, providing breakfast condiments for your first day, maps and guides, as well as their expert advice. The market is steps from your front door for groceries and the Campo de Fiore is a 2-3 minute walk.
The apartment is beautifully maintained with two bathrooms both with showers, an adequate kitchen, a beautiful master bedroom, a smaller second bedroom and a very nice living area. The apartment is stocked with kitchen condiments like salt, pepper,spices and amazing Italian olive oil and items like detergent for laundry and dish washing is also provided.
It was a lovely place to return home to after a long day of sight-seeing. The free WiFi kept our teenage boys occupied in the evenings and allowed us to keep in touch with our family back home easily. Walter and Natalia keep a journal for guests to write the highlights of their trip... it was fun to browse through and gave us some tips for great places to eat. The apartment is in a secure building in a very safe neighborhood. We were never wary or uncomfortable walking through the area any time of day or night.
Walter and Natalia arranged for transport from the airport and to the train station for the next leg of our journey. The communication with them via email prior to our arrival was excellent. We would absolutely recommend this property, they are sincere people with a genuine interest in your comfort and satisfaction.
All roads leads to Campo de Fiori!
Four adults shared the apartment for 4 nights. We were greated by the owners and provided some information on the apartment and the neighbourhood. This apartment is within walking distance of all typical attractions. 15 minutes to St. Peter's Basilica in one direction. 20 minutes to the Trevi Fountain in another direction. 25 minutes in another direction to the Coliseum. There are many guide books in the apartment that we used in addition to the ones we had brought with us. Very soundproof apartment on a street that has some late evening and early morning activity. Owner most willining provided us assistance in finding accomodation for 1 extra night that we needed to spend in Rome but that they could not accommodate us.
A dream come true...
Along with my husband and two dear friends I finally got to experience one of my dreams for the last 30 years...to "live" in Rome. After scrutinizing the posting on Trip advisor and from my first correspondence with Walter and Natalia, I knew that Dolce Roma Campo dei Fiori would be exactly what I was looking for. I am delighted to state that it surpassed my expectations. Everything about this rental was wonderful...the historic street and building, the extremely comfortable and well-equipped apartment, the ability to walk to almost everything we wanted to see, the corner grocery and newstand and especially, the owners, Walter and Natalia who were so responsive, accommodating and gracious. I was so sad to leave at the end of our stay and I wouldn't even think of staying anywhere else the next time I visit Rome.
Wethersfield, CT USA
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Rome, due in large part to your accommodations and
hospitality. Your apartment was as described and suited us perfectly. It is clean, quiet, a perfect size and extremely well located with The Vatican and Piazza Navona a short walk away. We enjoyed the easy setting of Navonaand the ladies enjoyed the easy access shopping nearby.
Thank you for your enthusiastic interest in our stay and comfort. Should we return to Rome for any reason, we would definitely want to stay at your apartment. We will also be recommending it to friends and relatives contemplating a visit to Rome.
Our family of 5 stayed in the above apartment for a week and had a thoroughly enjoyable time. The location is excellent and we were able to walk to alot of the places we wanted to see or easily get buses.Natalie and Walter were extremely helpful in all respects from arranging transport from and to the airport, information, the use of a cell together with supplying the basics in the apartment. I would just mention that the bathrooms/showers are quite small. Our family had a great time and would love to return.
The Right Place for Us
Enjoyable and central. Convenient to all the major historical attractions, markets, restaurants, cafes and yet quiet because it was in an area with apartments where locals lived. If you are not a hotel person and like your privacy with a homelike place to stay, I highly recommend this apartment. Remember it is Rome, you are in an ancient building, so no large bathrooms or kitchen. But you have lovely large bedrooms and the apartment is spacious, for a Rome apartment. Natalia and Walter were there to greet us and help us settle in and provided us with copious amounts of information.

Holy Week 2011 In Rome
Everything was excellent with the Campo dei Fiori apartment. Natalia was waiting for my wife, daughter and me when we arrived. Natalia took over an hour of her time to explain the apartment, the best sites to visit and where we should consider dining. The location of the apartment was outstanding. Close to the Vatican and all of the center city sites. While the bathrooms were small, they were sufficient for temporary living. The beds were excellent and the apartment was ample size for our family of three.
If you are looking for an ideal location and excellent hosts, you will not go wrong with Dolce Roma at Campo del Fiori.

Perfect accommodation in Rome!
This perfectly located and beautiful apartment contributed hugely to making our stay in Rome so amazing. It's right in the middle of all the historic sights and yet it's so very quiet and comfortable inside. We could walk to everything we wanted to see. Walter and Natalia greeted us on arrival and provided us with so much information to help us enjoy their wonderful city. They are great hosts!
Being able to use the Internet for brief Skype conversations home was a treat and Natalia left us yummy goodies to help with our breakfasts etc.
We would recommend this apartment to anyone and would love to stay there again.
We were two New Zealand couples travelling together.
walk everywhere from this lovely apartment in Rome
Natalia and Walter's apartment near Campo Di Fiori is a delight. The location could not be better - we walked everywhere that we wanted to see. Our hosts gave us a terrific welcome, briefing us on the apartment and the sights, as well as restaurant tips and stocking the fridge. And they arranged transport and gave us phones for the duration! The location is perfect - wine bar across the road, excellent restaurants around the corner, with the Campo Di Fiori, Piazza Navona and Pantheon all a few minutes away. You won't want to leave!
Wonderful apartment, location, and hosts!
The reviews say it all. Natalie and Walter go above and beyond as hosts, with smiles, humor, and warmth. They helped us when our international phone died, and when my sister-in-law found out her passport was missing. A lovely apartment in a great location. Showers are a little small, but adequate, with lots of hot water. Separate air conditioning units in each bedroom and the living room were great, the windows kept out the noise, but were lovely to leave open when cool and not sleeping. Felt safe, easy to walk to almost anywhere in the historic districts. Highly recommended.

Our Home in Rome
We really loved our holiday in Rome this time- we have formerly stayed in hotels which have been expensive and impersonal. The appartment was perfect for the 4 of us- central to everything, and the help and guidance Nathalia provided ,allowed us to see so much more of the "real" Rome.She was there to greet us, booked sights for us, and gave us invaluable advice on how to get around, lovely restaurants that were not touristy and money saving tips. Five nights was not enough to do it all- we'll be back and the only place we'll stay in when we're in Rome will be at Dolce Roma.
Fabulous location, great apartment
Natalia, the lady who owned the apartment, was waiting to show us round the apartment and give us hints and tips on the area. She provided us with a cell phone and said we could use it to contact her at any time if we needed assistance.
The apartment is well laid out with two bedrooms and two bathrooms, ideal for two couples. Natalia provided tea, coffee, sugar, milk, marmalade and various other condiments for our four day stay. The beds were extremely comfortable and there was constant hot water both in the kitchen and bathrooms.
The location was what sold this place to us as it was central to everything â€“ we walked everywhere â€“ the furthest being the Forum and Colisseum area. There was a lovely winebar â€“ Vino e Olio â€“ directly opposite the apartment which we visited a few times during our stay! It is on a very quiet street with a Spa grocery store close by to stock up on breads, meats and cheeses, etc.
We read the visitorâ€™s book and found a good restaurant, Navona Notte, where we ate twice during our stay. Good food and great owner.
I would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone wishing to stay in a quiet location in the centre of Rome. Natalia and Walter have furnished and decorated the property well with all you need for a relaxing, comfortable stay.
Art History Lovers
Charming apartment, perfectly located for sightseeing
The apartment is in a great location. We had a very packed itinery and were able to cover 90% of this on foot. The apartment had everything we needed; relaxing atmosphere, comfortable beds, quiet area, local shops, etc.
Natalia and Walter recommended Luigi's restaurant, less than five minutes walk away. The atmosphere was excellent with very friendly staff and locals. On our second visit we were welcomed with a glass of Prosecco, which after a hard day's culture really touched the spot. Good food and wine at a reasonable price, with those extra touches that makes you want to return.
January is a great time of year to visit with very few queues. We went straight into the Vatican Museums on the Thursday morning at 9.00 a.m. without pre-booking. We were very lucky with the weather with blues sky's every day. This along with the great apartment, good local food and wine made our visit very memorable. Walter and Natalie set the scene for us, providing us with all the information we needed. The Roma Pass worked really well and the map they provided was invaluable.
We hope to return in the future.
Location, hospitality and charm
I stayed with my family at Natalie and Walter's apartment in Campo dei Fiori for a week in November 2008. We had been to Rome before, but not for a long while, and really appreciated the personal service when Walter met us at the apartment, gave us detailed instructions, and lengthy advice about great things to do and see in Rome. The latter was clearly based on local knowledge gained by a couple who have made Rome their home and have a deep understanding of its history, art and culture. The apartment was modest by Western standards, but quite comfortable, with two bedrooms, a small sitting room and a cosy fully equiped kitchen. There was nothing that we needed for a week's stay that wasn't supplied, and there were some things inclued that we hadn't expected, like a start-up kit of food essentials (milk, coffee, sugar etc)and use of a mobile phone, which proved to be very useful. The location of the apartment is excellent, being within walking distance of many of Rome's historic sites. But more than this, there was also ready access to many enoteca and ristorante, especially in Campo dei Fiori, and a nearby supermarket with great produce. One aspect of our stay that we will never forget is that Natalie and Walter came to the rescue when my partner had an accident on a push bike in the Vila Borghese and broke her arm. They made appointments at a private hospital outside Rome, drove us there (giving up their Saturday morning), and negotiated with the doctors to ensure we got the best treatment available. You might expect this of your own family, but for one's landlords it was completely beyond the call of duty. Once we returned home, a few days later, they emailed to check we were OK. All this is to say that, if you need (it as we did), having Natalie and Walter on hand is like having family in Rome. On our next trip back,their apartment will be our first choice for accommodation in Rome.
Bob and Jan
We love this apartment as well as its owners.
This was one of the best experiences ever. Our initial meeting with Natalia and Walter was fun and informative. They were full of great tips for touring Roma, shopping, and even shared recipes for authentic Italian dishes. The home was beautiful and well furnished, clean, well stocked, roomy for a family of 4, quiet, and in a great location, only about 3 blocks from the center of Campo dei Fiori. And the beds were very comfortable. If we get to Roma again, we are staying here, without a moment's hesitation.
Deerfield MA, USA
Absolutely wonderful stay!
From the beginning of our stay, when Walter and Natalia met us at the apartment to show us around, to when we left (in a taxi they had ordered for us), we--my husband, myself and our 8-year-old son--had a wonderful time. Natalia and Walter were accommodating and gracious hosts who were able to meet us earlier that we'd originally planned without any problem; took time to point out restaurants and sites in Rome they thought we would like; and even gave us tips on dropping off our rental car). We appreciated this very much. The apartment itself was just perfect. The two bedrooms were spacious with place to put away our clothes and suitcases. The apartment-sized bathrooms were great with lots of towels and good water pressure in the showers. The apartment was so close to the Campo and Piazza Navona that we could walk everywhere (especially nice at night for dinner), yet it was utterly tranquil. The double-glazed windows shut out all street noise and even though I am a very light sleeper, I slept incredibly well. I was so thankful for this. During the time we were in Rome, it was hot but the apartment was blissfully cool. We felt comfortable and well taken care of, and, for a few days, got to live the fantasy of living as Romans in "our" own apartment. The guest book in the apartment is full of other guests who felt exactly as we did--that this is a wonderful place to stay! Our only regret is that we didn't stay longer. Now, anytime I see a cheap flight to Rome I won't hesitate to book, since I know exactly where we'll want to stay! I wouldn't stay anywhere else (unless it was in one of Natalia and Walter's other apartments).
We will be back
La Dolce Vita
We loved the Dolce Roma apartment in Campo dei Fiori!!! The location was by far the best location to see all the beautiful sites. we were able to walk everywhere! The apartment was amazing with all the comforts of home. We traved to many parts of Italy this summer, staying in apartments, Florence, Cinque Terre, Venice, Como, and Grottamare. My two sons, husband and myself all agree, hands down, that the Campo dei Fiori rental was our very favorite. Being able to stay in the historic part of Rome for six days is beyond words! Natalia the owner is very organized and helpful and made us feel at home the moment we arrived. We will alwas hold Rome near and dear to our hearts and dream of the day we can return!!

Room with a view
My husband and I (along with another couple) had the pleasure of staying in
Rome for 4 nights this past June. Dolce Roma tat Campo dei Fiori is a lovely 2
bedroom apartment. Walter and Natalia were so helpful in letting us know the
best places to dine and sights to see. They were very welcoming and helpful.
Their apartment is the best! charming, cozy but also plenty of space for two
couples. I would highly recommend it to anyone considering a trip to Rome
and would love to go back one day.
Natalia and Walter's aim is make your stay fantastic. They pay attention to important details and enhanced our trip to Rome immensely. The apartment is close to sights, surrounded by fabulous eateries, is beautifully furnished and finished. Their advise regarding where to go and what to see was spot on and hugely helpful.

This was our last leg of our month long trip to Europe. We were greeted by
Natalie and Walter who were very helpful with all our queries. Their overview
of the sites, transportation, restaurants, etc saved us hours of research and
time that we could of spent. Our family loved being able to have a home away
from home to come to everyday of sightseeing. Dolce Roma was
recommended to us by a friend and we will definitely be doing the same with
our family and friends. What a wonderful way to end a trip!
