Guestbook comments from the owner
I would highly recommend this apartment for a lovely staying in Rome.

We are a couple with 2 children and the flat was perfect for all our needs. It was very comfortable, very clean and very well equipped.

It is also in a great location, really beside Vatican and with all public transport to go to the old center just round the corner. If you like to walk – like us – you can reach also the centre and Trastevere in 20 minutes walking.

Really near the apartment you have all the services you need: market, restaurants, pubs, and all kind of shops you want.

We had a wonderful time in Rome and we would not hesitate to stay in this flat when we travel to Rome again.

A PERFECT VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We were in Roma for 10 days, 5 adults (around 30 years old) and one small child (3Y).
The app. was perfect! There is alot of free space for everyone, it's not small. We had a great time all together. You dont need buses or subway (maybe somethimes) everything is near the appartment (the city center). You can go shoping to carrefour (2 min away), you can buy grilled chicken just around the corner, eat a great shaorma or icecream and great chocolate cake from lemongrass (just next to the subway station) or OldBridge everywhere you look there are restaurant (although i recommend you to watch the prices... you can pay 30-40 euro for almost nothing)
There is food everywhere. You can find Maxi Chicken (like KFC) a street away (5 min on foot). I recommend it.
The street is a little bit loud in the morning, because there is the huge line to Vatican entrance (so i advise you to book online the tickets) and are lots of people.
The app. has AC, very important, we had 36°C in some days. Roma is warm; it's recommended to visit in spring or autum. We were in June.
The beds are great, there are 2 bathrooms (very clean) with bathtub or shower cabine. There is also a bidet. Dishwasher and a washing machine, you also have tabs for both of them, clean towels for everybody, detergent, everything you need for cleaning, iron, etc. Just like home a huge fridge and freezer.
Nobody will bother you, nobody will come in the app. for as long as you booked it. Your things are safe, you have the keys. You dont need to sign anything like a contract or something.
It's not a 5 stars hotel! It's better, it's like home.
Thank you Valentina! :)

AN AMAZING LOCATION OVERLOOKING THE VATICAN

  • 5 of 5
Well what can we say, the previous reviews have described the attributes and convenient location of this apartment perfectly. The apartment was an adequate size for two couples and two big, lanky teenage boys. The second bathroom,although small,was a bonus for us. Kitchen was very well appointed with appliances and even some basic supplies. Tourist attractions were all within easy metro, bus or walking distance. The apartment is very quiet despite the busy area thanks to the sound proofed double glazed doors that could be shut over the windows. We would highly recommend this apartment as a safe, convenient, clean haven in the wonderful, bustling city of Rome.

TICKED ALL THE BOXES - VERY NICE STAY!

  • 5 of 5
Overall this apartment was excellent value for money. In a great location it is close to the Vatican, St Peters, the metro, the local market (shoes mainly) and supermarket. Valentina was very helpful before our stay and we were greeted on time by a friendly and efficient housekeeper who spoke excellent English. The apartment was clean, well equipped with everything we needed and bright. Although air-con throughout would have been a bonus. It has a lift and was generally spacious (apart from the shower in the back bedroom which was quite small). There were lots of snack bars and restaurants nearby – and an excellent Gellataria just around the corner with queues that ran around the block! The apartment is in a secure and well maintained building on the main road but with double glazing and shutters the noise wasn’t a problem. We didn’t pre-book tickets for the Vatican; we just kept an eye on the queues. If you are over 60 take your passport to the Colosseum and you’ll get a concession!

THE NICEST APARTMENT WE STAYED IN!

  • 4 of 5
Gorgeous apartment with lots of space. The only negative was that the Internet signal wasn't picked up by three of us who had droid phones......the one who had an iPhone picked it up fine.

Extremely cute and air conditioning that worked well. Nice location near vatican.

Owner's Response: Hi, thanks for your kind review.
I' m happy to see that you enjoyed your holiday in Rome.
About internet I think that it depends on settings and permissions of personal phones, because the connection is standard and usually works very well.
kind regards

CLEAN, RELIABLE, AND CONVENIENT APPARTMENT

  • 5 of 5
Valentina was very flexible and reliable in arranging this appt, along with airport transportation. Smooth, timely operation contributed in the most enjoyable visit to Rome. Clean, functional, conveniently located appt is perfect for the family get away. It is spacious and double windows serve as noise and light blockers. Love the clothing line outside of the kitchen-clothes are dry the very next day, but the air conditioner works so well, that clothes dry inside, as well. Metro, restaurants and stores are right around the corner. The elevator is a plus for all the luggage. Safe front entrance. Will consider coming back. Thank you, Valentina.

COSY, CONVENIENT LOCALE & GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE

Cosy, convenient locale & great customer service
  • 4 of 5
We spent 6 lovely days in this vacation home. It is in a safe residential neighborhood with plenty of dining options. It is just 2 streets or 10 min walk from the nearest metro (subway). The Vatican museums is just across the street. Every morning, lines of tourists will be queuing up for the museums. We saw that the lines were longer on those days when it rained. Therefore, we suggest either making it there early around 8am (u will make it there in 5 min) or reserve tickets online thru the vatican museums website a couple of days earlier, paying 4eur more to skip the line, or book guided tours, instead of buying them from the touts. Valentina, the owner of this property, gave good tips on dining, traveling & shopping options which helped guide us on this trip. She and Tim (property manager) were very prompt in answering our queries & arranging our accommodation. Throughout our stay, they were just a phone call or email away. Carrefour is just across the street and there are many small grocers where we bought fresh fruits. Piazza d Risorgimento, short 5 min walk away is a nice place to people watch & have cafe fare & gelato. We also recommend having a nice dinner at Pizzeria Bisteccheria at Via degli Scipioni 45, about 15min walk from the apt. We chanced upon this pizzeria while exploring the neighborhood. Altho they served typical Roman fare, we love the delicious wood fire steak & the lively atmosphere. Not the usual run of the mill tourist hang outs. Seat near the chef working his magic at the wood fire stove. The apartment is surprisingly spacious for a Roman home and has almost everything we need. It matches up to the listing description, is well maintained & cosy. Pretty much like living in somebody's home. Although the apt faced the main street & can get noisy, the double glass window helps to keep the noise out. We particularly love the ride up & down the tiny old elevator which is quite an adventure for our kid. Definitely recommend this apt!

The house is located in front of the Vatican Museums and 5 minutes by walk from S.Peter.

Prati is a popular choice for Romans who want to live in the centre of the city. It is excellently serviced with many buses to go all over the city, and the metro about 1 minutes walk. The old centre of Rome is just a few minute. To see and be able to access all parts of Rome, this is an excellent choice. There are of course many shops of all kinds and lots of places to go at night, both near the building and a short walk into the city center.
