The apt is lovely, tastefully furnished & unbelievably quiet considering how close in proximity to Trevi fountain it is. (5 min walk.) No IKEA furniture either! Agnese has to be one of the best managers I've ever encountered. She went above & beyond to make sure I had a good experience. There were some issues I had with the keys because of physical limitations in my hands & Agnese made extra trips to assist me. She also made sure I had groceries when I arrived as there was a holiday the next day. Her personal commitment made the difference and it was always done with a smile.
The Old Bakery is steeped in history and is a wonderful place to stay. It's situated amidst the hub bub of Rome yet at the same time is peaceful due to being in a no through road opposite the Presidential palace.
The property is as described and is a comfortable place in which to relax.
Agnese answered my enquiries thoroughly and arranged airport transfer.
Unfortunately we didn't get to meet her in person but were well looked after by her daughter.
A special few days to celebrate a 21st - hope to return!
I loved this apartment. Beautiful furniture, comfortable living area, airy, view across to Quirinale. And so quiet yet only a short distance from the heaving crowds around the Trevi Fountain. Agnese was very helpful, allowing us to use the apartment until our flight and calling her taxi,a treat to be collected as we didn't have to drag cases down the slope. Minor negatives: the slope, especially when your feet hurt! The bed was a bit hard for me but provision of a topper and soft pillows will correct that. (Adult son said his single bed was very comfortable). Tiny kitchen but we didnt really use - great sandwiches at Forno, opposite Trevi.A welcome pack of wine, bread and water would be good.I'd love to return. 4.5 stars.
Take the offer of a taxi. Wear ultra comfortable shoes- cobbles hurt!
We enjoyed our stay at this lovely apartment. The location is amazing - all major attractions are within easy walking distance. Agnese responded to our questions promptly. We had late night flight on the day of departure. She kindly allowed us to keep our luggage in the apartment after the normal checkout hour so that we can enjoy the full day exploring the city without having to dragging the luggage around with us.
Spacious apartment very close to Trevi fountain but on a quiet street right by Quirinal Palace (=presidential palace). What a great place to stay and use as a base to see Rome. The owner Agnese is warm and helpful, and the apartment itself is modern, but in a building that's been there since the sixteenth century. Stay there!
travelled with 2 adults daughters, was in Rome for a week. The location of the Old Bakery is just perfect. Close to everything including market, liquor store, stores, but yet quiet due to the fact no car traffic allowed on our street. The apartment looks just like the pictures, only better in person. Yes it is in an old building, but has everything we needed to be comfortable, safe, and looked forward to going "HOME" after a day of seeing Rome, Naples etc.The kitchen is small, but served us well.Plenty of linens, towels and pillows. There were a few stairs, but nothing a 72 year old couldn't handle.We were picked up at the airport by a private driver, which was very nice. Arranged by the owner. So yes I would love to go back, stay longer than a week.

Our adult daughter stayed at this apartment in 2014 with a friend and raved about it so we booked it for our stay. Although it is one bedroom, my husband and I stayed with our 2 adult daughters.
Agnese is delightful, the bathrooms are amazing for Europe and location is perfect. We stayed for 5 nights and did day trips to Florence and Pompeii.
We cannot say enough good things about the apartment or location. Walking distance to everything, amazing restaurants nearby, Trevi Fountain and Spanish Steps right around the corner and view of the palace from the living room window.
Absolutely the best!!
