Reviewed 23 January 2013

I love Rome and am constantly looking for great, fairly-priced places to stay in the historical area, and this one is by far the best I've found for price-quality ratio. The apartments are simple but comfortable and the location is unbeatable. Right behind campo de' fiori, it's like a 5 minute walk to the pantheon and the tourist attractions or a 5 minute walk in the opposite direction to the Tiber and across the bridge to all the good cheap restaurants in trastevere. I also hit up the huge market in campo de' fiori one day and got some great stuff to eat for a stay-in meal. I was worried about noise because of the neighborhood (campo de' fiori is a major hangout with lots of bars, etc), and have had bad experiences for that regard before, but was pleasantly surprised at how calm the little squarenwas in the evening. In any case, this is a place I will definitely return to and would recommend to any of my friends.

Room Tip: There's no elevator, so if you don't like stairs, ask forna lower-level apartment

We have stayed here a few times now and find it a fantastic location for moseying around the beautiful city. The larger apartments at the front have a lovely outlook onto the palace opposite and it's a great place to sit with a glass of Prosecco bought from the nearby Spar shop and watch the world go by. The smaller apartments don't have this outlook but still contain everything you need, bed, shower, fridge, kettle.

We find the staff friendly and they speak good English. Any problems and you only have to make a phone call and it's sorted. We are looking forward to our next visit in October 2012.

Room Tip: If you want the palace view, go for the larger apartments at the front.

We stayed there for 3 nights in May, my third visit to Rome.
We were given apartment number 2, on the first floor, facing the piazza Capo di Ferro. I had no problem or heard no street noise, i am a light sleeper. Nothing fancy about the apartment but nothing wrong with it either.

I paid similar money (accommodation) for all 3 visits, this is probably a better value VS space option.

We had no problem with checking in staff, he is ok. Gaia was very helpful via our email communication with lots of suggestion on where to eat and how to get to colosseo by public transport...etc

Apartment is simple with some equipment for cooking, has a washer (not sure if it's also a dryer but we did not use it). Fairly clean.

We had a (big) apartment for two, with living room and bedroom separated. Shower works, water pressure not strong but is ok.

The Piazza Capo di Ferro feel safe, not where youngsters loiter around, happy there was no screaming drunken noise. Walking distance to everywhere, about 20 minutes to Colosseo with nice scenic route along the way. 10-15 minutes walking to Vatican (depending how slow you can walk) and we walked everywhere during the whole trip.

There is a little restaurant at the Piazza, probably the more okay food in Rome. Unless you go high price/level restaurant, I find Rome not the best city for Italian food. If you turn right at the piazza from the apartment, you will find a nice little wine bar which has very good wine list and serve ok-ish affordable priced food.

My husband and I stayed in the larger one-bedroom apartment for 3 nights in the last leg of a 17-day anniversary celebration. We took Gaia's advice and took a taxi from the train station. We were arriving quite late and were weary travellers. The taxi ride was entertaining to say the least. Rome's traffic is one big game of "chicken". Francesco was there to meet us and quickly checked us in with directions to the nearest grocery store so that we could get some provisions for breakfast. The apartment is exactly as shown. There is a handly little washing machine. No dryer. Microwave, hot plates, fridge, ice, no basics on hand such as salt, sugar, tea - cupboards were bare on our visit. Larger than I expected. Housekeeping every day. That was a pleasant surprise. In a very safe and central neighborhood where you can shop and eat with the locals, but still be within walking distance of all the fabulous tourist sites. We walked everywhere - Pantheon, Trevi Fountain, Colosseum and Vatican. The Campo de Fiori and Palazzo Navona are right around the corner and a great place to people watch, dine, and just hang out. In saying that, I also have to say that the apartment is very very quiet at night. Although there was a great TV with a bazillion channels, none were English, however, I was able to tap into someone's wireless, so we were able to catch up on world news. Gaia arranged a driver to take us to the airport. Again, that was a wild ride. It's just the Roman way.

We just returned from italy, where we spent the last two nights in Rome. We did not actually stay at the Campo Di Fiori because we were told that they had never received the faxed confirmation. While we were disappointed, these problems sometimes happen in travel and we were prepared to find another place to stay. The employee at the front desk, however, continued to be extremely rude when we asked for his suggestions for another hotel, insisting that any problem was our fault..

As we were awaiting a taxi, another woman came to register. When she was given rooms on the top floor, we overheard her tell the same clerk that she had requested rooms on the first floor because she was with her elderly mother who was recovering from cancer. The clerk was also rude to her.

Thank heavens there was no room at this hotel. We will never be attempting to book it in the future.

We stayed in Rome for a week with our 4 grown-up children and used both apartments. Note that there are only double beds available, so that might be a problem in some cases, not in ours, fortunately. Indeed the 3rd floor apartment is quite noisy at night and in the early morning (6.45-7.15) when the garbage collectors come around. However, the 2nd floor apartment has less of such problems as the windows open up to the opposite of the building. Expect an early morning call (7.30) by the same garbage collectors to open the door. The bathrooms are a bit Spartan and no soaps etc are provided for.
The price seems over the top (€ 90 pp) for such a studio, but one pays for the location, within 100m from the Campo de' Fiori and right in the epicentre of all of Rome's highlights in walking distance is a boon. There are hardly or no other hotels in the surroundings, but one may expect this to cange in the future.
I would search the next time for an alternative place close by, but if not available, I would happily settle down again.

We stayed in this studio right by the campo de fiori square for 2 nights and really enjoyed it. We were on the top floor and there is no elevator so you will have to carry your bags up 3 flights of stairs, but once you make the climb you will find a very comfortable studio suite. They have another studio one floor down which is very similar and nice as well. They allowed us to choose which we wanted as we showed up first, so we picked the upper suite because it was a little brighter, but the other studio was very nice as well. The shower is quite small which was not a problem for us, but might be for larger people. Everything was very clean. We really only used the fridge, but the kitchenette seemed to have everything you might need. No microwave but it did have a hot plate. The only downside to this suite is the noise at night. There is a restaurant right downstairs and it is very noisy at night. We used earplugs and had drinks with dinner everynight, so it was not too bad for us, but if you are a light sleeper, I would probably not recommend this studio. The location was excellent. We walked everywhere from the studio. The bus stop to the unit is probably a 5 - 10 minute walk.
