The apartment is on the second floor of a traditional palazzo built in the late 1880s, and can be reached by one flight of stairs or an elevator. There is a security gate in the building's entrance foyer. The apartment was fully renovated in 2010 by its American owner, and provides a high level of accommodation, including air conditioning and heating. The apartment's entrance hall is welcoming, with interesting art, built-in bookcases with many books on Rome, and additional closet space. Off of this entrance hall is the dining room, with a table that seats six people; a window to the street makes this a cheery space. The living room has all new, high-quality furnishings, and is elegant and very comfortable. Several large windows bring in a lot of light, and there is lovely art and antique prints on the walls. There is seating for 8, a flat screen satellite TV, a DVD player, and an iPod with docking station in the living room. The kitchen has been fully renovated in sparkling glass tiles and has all new appliances, including a refrigerator, gas stove and oven, dishwasher, and microwave.

The master king-size bedroom is quite large, also with all new furnishings. There is a writing desk in the room and an iPod docking station. A sofa bed in this room comfortably sleeps an adult in case two people want to share the room but use separate beds. The second bedroom has two new twin beds. Both bedrooms look down on a small courtyard, so there is minimal city noise. There are two full bathrooms in Apartment Moderna. One of them has a bathtub and shower attachment. The other bathroom has a small shower with glass doors. Both bathrooms were fully renovated in sparkling glass tiles.
