Very Good

“Excellent location. Very clean. Excellent Host.”

Reviewed 24 Jul 2017

This is our second stay in the apartment and I would highly recommend it. It is comfortable and very clean. The host provides essentials that facilitate and simplify the stay. Walk to almost everything.

“We will return to this perfect apartment!”

Reviewed 31 Dec 2014

My husband, mother, sister-in-law and I stayed at the Spanish Steps Apartment on Via della Mercede for 5 nights at the end of October. Our stay here was perfect in every way. The owner, David, was incredibly helpful with the booking process, assisting with logistics, and making recommendations. After long flights from the USA, we greatly appreciated David arranging for a complimentary car service from the airport to the apartment. We were met at the apartment by the manager who helped us settle in quickly, left us with groceries, and oriented us to the city and nearby attractions. She also arranged our transportation back to the airport. The apartment is more spacious than it appears in the pictures, exceptionally clean, quiet and comfortable. We had everything we needed including access to a laptop, WIFI, and printer. We had plenty of room and privacy for four guests. The location is perfect for getting to all the major sites either by walking or by the nearby taxi stand (public transportation is also close by, we just didn't happen to use it). The neighborhood is safe and charming. A favorite restaurant recommended by David and within walking distance was Trattoria Dal Cavalier Gino. David also recommended a company that offers personalized tours with private guides, called Rome and Tuscany Tours. We booked a scooter tour of the city, a walking tour of ancient Rome, and a day trip to Pompeii and Positano, and all were excellent and unforgettable experiences. We really can't say enough about our wonderful experience with The Spanish Steps Apartment on Via della Mercede and our host, David. We look forward to our next trip to Rome and staying again at this lovely apartment.

“An exceptional, modern, well maintained apartment in a perfect location”

Reviewed 24 Jun 2014

We’ve all heard about “heightened expectations” and “diminished performance”. We had heightened expectations but in the case of the Spanish Steps Apartment, the performance exceeded those expectations. We were there with our 16 year old grandson, and we all had a wonderful experience in a lovely apartment which was extremely well outfitted, well maintained and in a handy location for touring around Rome via foot or taxi. There’s a cab stand quite nearby, and we used that probably more than a native would. We did not use the metro but it too is handy. The layout of the apartment suited us wonderfully well. The beds were comfortable. The furniture and furnishings were more than our expectations. Air conditioning was wonderful to have a few nights and was quite effective. The neighboring business folk were friendly and worked with us in our pidgin Italian. An extra bonus which is not common is the owner's travel guide with tips about the neighborhood and travel in Rome generally. You can leave Fodor's and Rick Steves behind, though the house library is full of guide materials. We could go on but other reviewers have hit the highlights. All in all, we cannot recommend this apartment enough.

“Perfect Roman experience”

Reviewed 18 Nov 2013

We very much enjoyed our stay in the Spanish Steps apartment two months ago in September 2013. We brought with us some friends with us who had never experienced Rome before (!!) and the combination of the sights, sounds and tastes of the Eternal City - and the comfort and proximity of your apartment meant that our five night stay was very special indeed. Our greeting at the apartment was friendly and warm and as professional as could be imagined - and the accommodation was first class. We also very much enjoyed and made good use of the personally compiled food and restaurant guide left in the living room - and had some of our most enjoyable meals at the owner's recommended restaurants. We will not hesitate to recommend the Spanish Steps apartment to friends and relatives - and will certainly stay there again in the future.

“A wonderful family apartment in Rome!”

Reviewed 16 Oct 2013

My family and I stayed at The Spanish Steps apartment for nearly two weeks in august. The apartment exceeded expectations. We are a family of four with two teenagers. It was important for us to have two bathrooms and air conditioning. Rome is hot in august! The bathrooms and the kitchen are all modern and updated. The rooms are spacious and the owner has literally thought of everything! He even has a binder full of ideas and many books on Rome available for guests. There is an apartment manager (Rosie) who is available if you have any questions or need anything and the owner is only an email away. Highly recommended! Love the location! Great gelato, pizza nearby and a supermarket right around the corner. A great option for a vacation - far better than a hotel! You will love it!

“You name it..perfect apt, owner, location..”

Reviewed 21 Apr 2013

We recently went to Rome for a week during our child's school vacation. The Spanish Steps apt. were ideal in so many ways. Size ( really large for Europe), ease of rental, location , and ease of dealing with owner. The unit is light, quiet, super comfortable and basically you can walk or take a taxi to every major Roman tourist site. We've rented units in Paris, Switzerland,Tuscany and London and this ranks as the no.1 place we've stayed at.

“Wonderful, relaxing, and easy!”

Reviewed 31 Mar 2013

My husband and I and another couple spent a really fantastic week in Rome at the Spanish Steps apartment. From the moment we arrived in Rome, everything was a breeze. It was such a pleasure to be picked up at the airport and driven directly to the apartment (and picked up at the apartment and driven to the airport at the end of our stay). The apartment itself was everything promised and more (we completely agree with prior reviews stating that the apartment is even nicer than it appears in the photos). We felt completely at home from the moment we arrived. The whole place was spotless and beautifully appointed. Both bedrooms were large, and the beds and pillows were really comfortable. We slept incredibly well the whole week. The living room was so inviting, and the chairs and couches so comfortable, we really enjoyed the time we spent relaxing there. The two full baths,kitchen and dining room were attractive, and had every amenity one could possibly need. On top of all of that, the location of this apartment was unbeatable. We were able to walk to virtually every sight we visited, and when we chose to take a taxi or the subway, they were right nearby (taxis were always available and about a block away, the subway was a few short blocks away). Surprisingly, given the prime location, it was really quiet inside the apartment. We were also thrilled with the "concierge" book David provides - it was full of recommendations and information on restaurants and activities, and we used it all the time. We also used the laptop (with excellent internet service) a lot - what an incredible convenience. We loved being in Rome, and a big part of that was the great place we were staying. We will be back!

“Perfect Place in the Heart of Everything”

Reviewed 3 Jan 2013

This apartment is beautifully decorated and has everything you need! It is so conveniently located only two blocks from the Spanish Steps, and everything is within walking distance. Taxi stands and metro are also only blocks away and very easy to access. David Colin has thought of everything--movies, books, maps, recommendations for good food and must see sights are all available in the living room for guest reference.

“A most memorable vacation”

Reviewed 29 Nov 2012

The Spanish Steps apartment was a great opportunity to experience the Roman lifestyle from a very relaxed and lovely setting. The apartment is everything described on the website: it was very thoughtfully and tastefully appointed. The bed and bedding were very comfortable. We felt very secure. The small computer and wireless was very handy to have. The noise reduction machines worked their magic for tranquil sleep. We appreciated how spotless the entire apartment was. The location, however can not be beat. It is in the heart of one of the most fashionable and desirable shopping areas in the world. We walked to most sites. The subway is a couple of blocks away if we were tired and wanted to come home and have a rest before going out for the fun Roman night life. We loved the wonderful personal library with extensive books on Rome that we found at the apartment. We made daly reference to it and to David's thoughtful, thorough and detailed notes on sites with easy to follow directions. His personal restaurant recommendations in the neighborhood were wonderful and for the most part very reasonable. The Colins had a private driver pick us up and take us to the airport and this was a much appreciated service. It relieved much stress to feel immediately welcomed and not have to negotiate the transportation issue feeling tired. Once at the apartment, it was also wonderful to be greeted and oriented by Rosie their concierge. We knew we could call on her if we had any questions. She had stocked our refrigerator with some complementary basics, which was a lovely added touch. From the very start of the negotiations, the Colins were professional, very helpful and easy to work with. Their attention to detail to make the experience of their guests exceptional is to be commended. This will be a vacation that we will remember fondly for a life time. Tannia Hecht

“Excellent apartment! Highly recommended”

Reviewed 19 Aug 2012

From the time I made the reservation, everything was excellent. David's and Rosie's attention, help, and organization was top class. My family and I were picked at the airport and taken to the apartment, where Rosie was waiting for us. She had some snacks and wine for us, and gave us the keys. The apartment is in an extraordinary location, at walking distance from all major interested places. The apartment is very well equipped, spacious and very, very comfortable. Rooms and beds were great, with losts of rooom. The whole apartment is air conditioned, which is a must during the summer months in Rome. I can't say enough about this apartment and our experience while in Rome. Besides all the information David provided us with before our trip, there's also a lot of information in the apartment with respect to places to visit, restaurants, etc. All I can say is that the next time my family and I go to Rome the first thing I'll do is contact David to see if his apartment is available.
