Appartments in Rome

My husband & I will be spending 3-5 days in Rome this October and would prefer to stay in an appartment vs. a hotel. We'd like a place in the area of the Spanish steps, non-smoking, lift if it is higher than the 2nd floor, washing machine, nice view, safe & nice neighborhood. Any recommendations?

I cannot recommend a specific apartment, but if you go to www.sleepinitaly.com you can search for an apartment at the Piazza di Spagna. They have some nice looking apartments & Fodorites like Sleep in Italy for finding a good place.

You can also look at slowtrav.com for reviews. Another website for rentals is VRBO.com

Second the sleepinitaly recommendation; can't recommend a specific apartment in the area in which you wish to stay as we usually stay in Campo dei Fiori/Via Guilia area.

Yep with Sleep in Italy. Have used them for years and have never been disappointed in either service or apartments.

Thanks! I had found a nice place & seemed to be recommended but the appartments did not require non-smoking; & my allergies become misrealable when I spend much time in a closed up environment with any left-over smoke smell. Not the way I want to spend a vacation to Italy.

sweetjen, I also recommend SleepInItaly. We found an excellent apartment for our stay in May. Non-smoking, too, as I also have allergies to smoke.

Good luck and have a wonderful trip!

While I am a smoker, I never smoke in any apartment or hotel room, whether allowed or not. I don't smoke inside my own house, because yes it stinks. To do so in another's environment is just plain rude.

I would hope that other smokers would also extend this courtesy, but unfortunately they do not.

We just came back from Europe and we stayed in Rome for 7 days, 3 days in Piazza Navona and then in Campo di Fiori, went around the Spanish Steps and Fountain di Trive, too touristy. I would recommend anybody to stay around Piazza Navona over any other place.

Not during the day if you stay in the streets behind like we did. We were about 4 blocks from the Piazza, actually right by the overrated Pizza Baffetto (yuck), we could walk the noise wasn't too bad. But by The Spanish Steps it was a nightmare to be around, blocks and blocks of people at any time, and we went several times, I can't imagine sleeping or just staying around there. All the big shopping and high scale stores are around there, so there is traffic, Piazza Navona has little traffic.

Jubilada!

I will try to put a report soon, we did so much in these last 8 weeks. We just came back today after a 2 day trip and I'm trying to adjust my clock to Denver time again, back 8 hours!
