The Margana Experience is the second property to join the Rome Experience collection of luxury properties by Rome Accommodation. Tucked away in Piazza Margana, just steps from Piazza Mattei where the Costaguti Experience is located, the Margana Experience features a private palazzo with room to accommodate up to 20 guests in nine bedrooms and eight baths, a private outdoor patio, exclusive spa area, and the attentive service from a dedicated concierge.
The new Margana Experience just underwent a soft renovation to improve some of the furnishings as well as transform the two apartments, formerly Margana I and Margana II, into the unified, private home.
Palazzo Albertoni is situated in the charming Piazza Margana, a quiet square just behind Piazza Venezia and steps from the Campidoglio. The history of the square dates back to the Middle Ages when the noble Margan family constructed the buildings that surround the open space. The present Palazzo Albertoni dates back to the 17th century with traces of an earlier Renaissance building hidden inside.
Small streets peel away from the public square leading to other intimate squares like Piazza Margana. It’s an adventure just to get lost among the narrow streets of the Jewish neighborhood, poking inside the small artisan shops and studios, restaurants and cafes.
Within just 5 minutes walking in different directions from Piazza Margana you can easily reach Piazza Venezia and the Altare della Patria, the Campidoglio and Capitoline Museums. Piazza della Cinque Scole, the heart of the Jewish neighborhood that is home to several Kosher restaurants and shops, is just a stones throw away. As is Campo de’ Fiori and Via del Corso. Piazza Venezia is just beyond that.
A feature of all Rome Experience collection properties is the capacity of the homes and spacious public and private areas. The Margana Experience can accommodate up to 20 guests in nine bedrooms and eight baths. The rooms are split among three floors and connected by an interior, private staircase. The layout is ideal for multigenerational travelers where grandparents, children, and grandchildren travel together, or diverse groups of friends. There’s a high ratio to public and private space to render the home comfortable for bigger groups.
Entry to the home is through a street-level entrance that is private for guests of the Margana Experience. The staircase leads to the first floor above ground level and into the first level of the home. On this level, there’s the indoor dining room to enjoy family meals at home. There are four full-size bedrooms on this level plus a lofted bedroom and three full baths, two of which are ensuite. The main kitchen for the home is on this level that leads onto the private patio. The patio features an original decorative fountain and a large table for 20 guests to enjoy meals al fresco.
Continuing up the main staircase, the second level above ground floor features a two-floor apartment. This floor features the large living room with flat screen TV and streaming services, and plenty of seating on several large sofas and oversized chairs. On this level there are three bedrooms and three baths, as well as a second kitchenette and laundry room. One of the bedrooms is also the master bedroom which features a private spa area, including a steam sauna and jacuzzi tub: the perfect retreat after a long day exploring the city and the best way to pamper yourself while on vacation. An interior staircase leads you up to the third floor of the Margana Experience, where there are two more bedrooms and baths.
Like all properties in the Rome Experience collection, a dedicated concierge is available to personalize your stay and answer any questions you may have from the moment you show interest in booking. Your concierge may help you arrange a transfer from the airport, make restaurant recommendations and reservations, organize city tours or bespoke experiences, or even plan a day trip outside Rome.

We couldn’t have asked for a nicer, cleaner apartment. Everyone complimented at how convenient it was for a large group traveling together. Enough privacy with individual bedrooms, yet roomy enough for everyone to come together for drinks and snacks before heading out to dinner.
Finally, as the saying goes “Location, Location, Location”. This apartment was in a prime location for everything. It was an easy walk to the Vatican, the Colosseum; the Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, Pantheon – every where we wanted to go.
I would HIGHLY recommend Margana Experience for any large group traveling who wants a great value, great location and overall a wonderful experience in Rome.

We had a fantastic few days at the Margana Experience, the location is perfect and the apartments excellent.
Special thanks to Roberta who helped with all our queries before the trip and to Brian for an easy check in service.
We would highly recommend the chef at home experience, it was a lovely relaxing evening and the food was great.

We celebrated the golden marriage with 8 adults and 8 children (7 – 14) for a week in March. The apartment was ideal for the setting since it allowed us to arrange the rooms according to the family situation.
Location was ideal for walking tours through the centro storico. Although not needed we found a solution to park a car in a few minutes walking distance (Rome offers parking by app EasyPark).
We enjoyed one night an in-house cooking event with chef Andrea which was with our party of 16 a wonderful experience.
The Margana Experience is definitely a recommendable place for a stay with a bigger group of people.
