“Wonderful multi floored apt that feels more like a home”
Reviewed January 22, 2018 for a stay in January 2018

Very well located in the quiet area of Trastevere (the best) this apartment feels more like a home; it is well decorated and roomy. It has been recently upgraded with state of the art tv and stereo and best of all has a terrific terrace overlooking the Vatican dome and lovely areas with a heating system which automatically turns on the moment you open the door. Service also very good. Would love to go back with my son or other friends.

Thanks Anna! I'm flattered you mentioned my "pattented" terrace heater. I used to sit with a glass of wine seemingly at the very top of Rome looking out to St. Peters and over the rooftops feeling just a little cold in January and February....so I rigged up a powerful radiant heater on the ceiling so that as soon as you sit down you feel warm.

I'm also glad you liked the new electronics. We had gotten a few hints it needed upgrading but now with huge screens, apple TV etc we're back in the modern age...

My sister and I have been helping guests enjoy Rome and Italy in general for decades. We consider our role that of providing much more than a great place to stay. We give you the local knowledge and support to make everything easy.

Benvenuti a Roma and thanks again Anna!

“Absolutely excellent apartment with customer service to match”

Right from the 1st contact the service was excellent. The response to the initial booking request was extremely quick and answered all our questions.

The pictures do not do justice to the apartment which has real character and is extremely well equipped. We had everything we needed and although eating out we could have easily cooked, even entertained!

The roof terrace really tops everything off. With a view across Rome and a cover in case it rains you can sit out and enjoy the evening.

Before we arrived we had tips on Rome and offers of supplying the apartment with food for our arrival. We were met by Alex who "checked us in" making sure we knew everything and then took us to the pre-booked restaurant; all at 11 pm at night! The team were in touch each day by email seeing if there was anything we needed and then "checked us out" with the same personal service.

A lovely quiet area of Rome, an excellent apartment and incredible customer service. Highly recommended.

Top floor apartment in a quaint, centrally-located neighborhood. Elevator from lobby to apartment entrance. Living room, dining room, kitchen on entry level. Spiral staircase up to loft, master bedroom and bathroom. Half flight of stairs up to second bedroom and second bathroom. Additional half flight of stairs up to a very large terrace with views of the Tiber River, St. Cecilia's Church, St. Peter's Basilica, and the Victor Emmanuel Monument. Washer and dryer in unit. Lots of charm and plenty of space to spread out. Responsive and helpful management. Highly recommended.

Thank you Paul. We're here if ever you choose to deepen your Rome exploration with another trip. You now know the Roman Nobleman's Penthouse but if you come again with 12-20 people we'll provide the Nobleman's mansion with 8 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms and 3 eat out terraces.

It was great to have a gentleman stay at our place. Thank you.

The apartment is absolutely as described, and was home base for my son and me for about a week in Rome. It is a nice apartment in a lovely neighborhood, not the center, and is walking distance (long walks) or an easy cab ride to many sights. A few advisory comments to those of you, like me, who have rented before (i.e. things I would want to know): (1) there are lots of stairs, both to get to the apartment (the elevator to the apartment doesn't always work) and once inside ; (2) while I would not describe the apartment as "luxury" it was very comfortable (certainly better than "basic") - dishes and linens were Ikea, clean, and new, and furniture was all in good shape; (3) appliances were new/ modern and functioned well; (4) there is lots of storage space, though not a lot of seating (except outside); (5) the owners and manager are very responsive and helpful -- information provided is often emailed or electronic and sometimes conflicts with print-outs in the apartment (so stick to the electronic, which is more up to date-- also, since they have a couple of apartments, make sure the directions provided (like how to get to the market) relate to the correct apartment); (6) everything functioned properly-- internet, a/c (make sure to close the shades/ curtains in sunny rooms-- you have to choose between the a/c and the view), hot water, etc. (7) the outside space is a staircase and a half from the kitchen, for those who are thinking of dining al fresco-- you have to carry everything upstairs, past the bedrooms, etc. (we went out, so it didn't matter to us, but thought you should know) (8) there are two bedrooms (with two queen/ double beds) which sleep 4, and fitting more people would mean putting them on a pull-out couch in an area that is loft-like/ hallway-like area out in the open-- it would be noisy and without any privacy. All in all, we very much enjoyed our stay at Attico Mercanti.

Thanks for your great review!
Rome is an ancient city and this magic penthouse offers a wonderful location within walking distance of the major sites. It is quiet and very comfortable. Services in Rome can't match those in major US cities so things like water pressure are not as good as in the US - but we provide the best you can get in Rome. Our WIFI is fiber optic and fast and all our appliances are new and constantly updated.
We send all our users a handy travel app that has everything you need to know about the apartment and Rome. And we are personally there for all your planning needs - even to reserve restaurants and taxis for you.
A presto a Roma!

“Perfect Place to Stay”
Reviewed August 31, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Casapicard is a lovely and well-situated flat to stay in while seeing Rome. Being right across the Tiber in Trastevere, it is convenient to many locales. It is on a quiet street, the interior is well designed (and on 4 levels!) and the rooftop terrace is perfect for enjoying some dine-in al fresco dinners and breakfasts. The apartment is well-stocked for a holiday rental. The owners, Elizabeth and Martin, put a lot of effort into making sure you have everything you need. I had helpful and frequent communication with Elizabeth. Thanks for a great stay!

“Comfortable apartment in wonderful location”
Reviewed May 27, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

The Mercanti Penthouse (CasaPicard) is located in the wonderful neighborhood of Trastevere, away from the large tourist crowds with lots of restaurants and shops. It is on the top (3rd) floor which can be reached by a small elevator. The main entrance floor has a compact kitchen, a dining area and a living room sitting area. Up the curved staircase is a small landing with a pull out bed if needed, and just beyond a master bath and king bedroom. Up another short flight of stairs is a second bedroom and second bath. Up a short flight of stairs from there you enter a beautiful roof top terrace with seating for at least 6, a wet bar, and this is also where the washer and dryer are hidden away in a cabinet. There is a marvelous view of the city from here.

There is air conditioning in each room. The wifi worked very well.

Around the corner from the Piazza Mercanti are plenty of places to stop for coffee or purchase supplies for meals. We recommend the Mirror Pizzaria for lunch and Enzo for dinner, the later requires a reservation in advance. The property owner, Martin, will send you much information about the apartment and the area and, along with his sister Elizabeth, answer all the questions you may have about your stay.

We recommend the car service for arrival and departure with bags, either from the airport or Termini train station. If you enjoy walking you can walk most everywhere from the apartment. If not, there is a taxi stand about 4 blocks away. We walked and used taxis for the longer hauls.

“A truly magical experience from booking to departure”

I am so very sorry it took me so long to write a review of this apt. We are well travelled and have high standards and high expectations of accomodations. This penthouse apt was nothing short or perfect. Martin, the owner took my husband and myself under his wing when he contacted him in desparation for a place to stay. Our previous rental had some "issues" and as a result there were 4 adults arriving in Rome within 2 days and we had no place to stay. In one email Martin solved our problem. He went way above and beyond to help us out. He worked with us for almost 24 hours non stop to be sure everything we needed was in order. Everthing from what type of pillows to making arrangements to have us picked up at the airport was handled by Martin in a expert way.
His sister Elizabeth was also over the top in the assistance she provided. Upon arrival we noticed there was no coffeee maker and so called Elizabeth. Within 1 hour, she had arranged for a young man to bring us a brand new coffee maker, coffee and milk for the coffee.
The apt itself is exactlly as shown. It was a little smaller on the main floor than i had anticipated but we hardly used this space for sitting. For us it was all about the rooftop terrace. It still makes me smile to remember sitting there, listening to the church bells toll and watching folks walking along the cobblestone piazza. Truly a magical experience.
The area was perfect for us. It is old Rome complete with narrow steets, limited access to cars, and local markets and restaurants. We were so surprised by the reasonable costs in the restaurants and the outstanding food. Enzo's and San Michelle were our 2 favourites.
I could go on forever about this apt and its owners. There was no down side and i cannot think of one thing i would do to improve the apt nor the services provided.
Book it and look forward to the experience of a life time.
