Perhaps it’s the floating stairs, or maybe the bright color pallet, either way, the second-floor apartment has an endearing simplicity. A large, beautifully tiled bathroom compliments two snuggly sleeping nooks, and the small kitchen with a naturalistic table and baby blue cabinets are all you need to cook a romantic meal.
Authentic details have this casa bursting at the seams—everywhere you look is another deeply thought out detail, from arched brick ceilings, colorful chandeliers, hand-carved marble, various tiling and centuries-old fountains and decor. The abode was redesigned with “the philosophy of the recovery of ancient materials”, so staying here is like a treasure hunt, historical lesson and vacation all in one. Chill on the veranda, use Roman pots and the host’s own recipes to cook up a meal, or traverse the nearby restaurants. The Colosseum is no more than a short walk away.
The 17th-century structuring is the foundation for this luxurious Airbnb Plus in the historic center of Rome. Bold gold and blacks stripes adorn the walls, elegant furniture adds the upscale touch, marble accents make the place glisten. The location puts guests near the iconic Trevi Fountain and the Spanish Steps.
First of all, the apartment is exactly 328 feet from the Colosseum. But the interior is super interesting, with a wooden platform sleeping loft area hovering over the actual living room. It looks like some sort of awesome fort, complete with a fireplace underneath! Bursts of colorful orange tile make a soak in the bathroom quite cheery, and the kitchen carries on the same uplifting visuals.
Touted as a livable sculpture, the home has coral-like walls with embedded mosaic tiling—it’s intriguingly breathtaking and an art lover’s dream. A little kitchen, bright bathroom and lush gardens are accessible to guests. The host leaves complimentary goodies like drinks in the little fridge while providing plenty of privacy. The town center is only a short drive away.
The Villa Torlonia, Quirinals, Villa Borghese and Colosseum are near this narrow-yet-cuddly apartment with exposed brick and a cute little kitchen with orange tiles. The building itself is richly designed, fitting well into the authentic nature of surrounding structures. It’s also located close to public transportation, making it a breeze to travel to other famous sites in Rome.
A large terrace overlooking the city is what sells this poshly decorated apartment. A patio living set offers extra seating for a group of friends to gather for wine and Italian eats. Two bedrooms with plush bedding, spa-like bathrooms and open, breathable living space with a small kitchen await inside. But you may just want to stay on the rooftop—forever.
While this loft apartment appears highly modern with its glass stairs, see-through catwalk and edgy decor, the theme goes far beneath the surface. Once the painting studio of Italian artist Italo Scelza, the property is an ode to his work, and to creativity in general. The architecture is captivating, and four guests can easily stay within this open, imaginative abode.
Encapsulated by high wooden ceilings, arched doorways, and ambient lighting is the coolest feature of this one-bedroom, 2.5 bath beauty—the small, elegant square pool. Taking the Via dei Riari located oasis to the complete next level of lavish, are its shiny, warm-toned attributes. Things brighten up in the bedrooms, with some light colors, and the bathrooms reflect the same high-end flair as the main living space.
Phenomenally priced and welcoming and snug, this little chalet is a unique find in Rome. The living space is adorned with wooden walls and a peaked ceiling, which is reminiscent of a precious cabin in the woods. A huge musical instrument sits in the corner, adding a fun touch. Double glass doors open to the generously sized terrace, which extends the living space. The kitchen and bathroom are cute, rounding out this nook as a neat, inexpensive home-base for your trip to Rome.
Whimsical, ornate and accented with the most perfect colors, this Airbnb Plus is so very “Italy”. The host has filled the 1800s loft apartment with antique furniture to keep the classic Roman feel, but the iron spiral staircase is no doubt the star of the show. The multiple tiers of wooden nooks complete the space with an overall awesome visual appeal.
