Overview

Prati (Vatican area) Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

R'HOME SWEET R'HOME: Stay in a fabulous apartment in one of Rome’s oldest neighborhoods, a few steps from St. Peter’s Basilica!

This accommodation combines the best that Rome has to offer: a recently renovated, light and comfortable apartment located in one of the city’s most historic quarters. The neighborhood, Rione Borgo, has cobblestone streets, artisans' workshops, neighborhood cafés and local trattorie.

It is within walking distance of the city’s major attractions, including the Vatican Museums, the Sistine Chapel, Castel Sant’Angelo, Piazza Navona, the Spanish Steps, the Trevi Fountain and the Piazza Campo de’ Fiori.

This ground-floor apartment is typical of this ancient district of Rome and it is elegantly furnished with modern fixtures. It has its own entry-way, a spacious living room with chimney (including a twin-size sofa bed and an ottoman bed), a kitchenette, a well-appointed bathroom and a master bedroom with original, Renaissance-era brick work.

The thick, Renaissance-era masonry provides cool relief from the summer heat.

Additional details: fully fitted kitchen with fridge, microwave oven and kettle; bathroom with bath tub/shower, dryer; TV; washing machine; boiler for independent heating; crib and high chair for younger children; Internet Wi-Fi; DVD reader and Video Library of 30 movies in English.

The apartment is easily accessible with public transportation, including tram, subway and bus. There are several nearby taxi stands and bicycles and scooters are available for rent. The nearby San Pietro train station has regular service to the Fiumicino airport and to the beach. There is even a taxi-boat service along the Tiber.

Guided tours available on request.

We would be happy to answer any other questions you might have.

About The Owner

Roberta and Alessandro will do their best to make your stay unforgettable!

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2010

What makes this apartment unique

You are inside the history! The building where the apartment is located was built a few years after the discovery of America. Some walls of the house were built using 2000 years old Roman amphorae! All the walls of the apartment are been fully restored and the amphorae are still clearly visible.

Ahh Roma!

  • 5 of 5

My 21 yr. old daughter and I visited Rome for the first time. Roberta and Alessandro are the perfect hosts, from the first correspondence by email to the one this morning checking that we got back home safely, they arranged a lovely holiday. The apartment is in a perfect location, you walk out the door and are at the Vatican in 3 minutes, 5 if you stop for an espresso! We walked to the Spanish steps, the Pantheon, the Colosseum.....every where.

The accommodations are perfect, comfortable bed, hot shower, plus everything you need in a home away from home,(we own a vacation rental ourselves so we know what it takes.) Fresh flowers and a few special dietary items I needed were exception touches.

I must give at least one recommendation for our favorite restaurant, Sorpasso on Via Properzio 31 we had lunch there twice and were amazed by the eggplant parm. and an memorable trapizzino filled with an delicious Rosemary chicken. Gelato, pizza and espresso, I miss you already!

I highly recommend this apartment, not only for location, but because Roberta and Alex make sure every detail is perfect! We especially appreciated their driver taking us to and from the airport.

Ciao!

Most wonderful stay in Rome

  • 5 of 5

From the warm welcome, and fresh pastry on arrival this place was the perfect place for our quick 4 day stay in Rome. The location was exactly as described, only steps from the Vatican and Sistine Chapel. We questioned the walk to additional sites such as the Coliseum and were pleasantly surprised as these walks were most easy and enjoyable. The apartment had kitchen facilities to meet our needs, and restaurants very close to enjoy as well. Alec and Roberta were very easy to work with, very knowledgeable with history and local recommendations. They responded to our many questions very promptly.

I would recommend this appt and hope our travels take us back. A huge thank you for your Italian hospitality!

Excellent stay in Rome

  • 5 of 5

I am so happy I rented this apartment for the 4 nights I stayed in Rome. The hosts, Roberta and Alec, were very easy to work with from when I contacted them until my departure. It was nice to have someone in Rome I "knew" since I was traveling solo and really appreciated their hospitality. The apartment was beautiful and had everything I needed. It was around the corner from the Vatican, though I was able to walk to all the other sights in Rome within 30-40 minutes. I liked staying in the apartment rather than a hotel or b&b and would highly recommend this property.

The Best of the Best in Rome!

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time we discovered a remarkable VRBO property and we can definitely state this was another great experience. The nicely decorated apartment was exactly as pictured and the owners' hospitality was extraordinary. Alex and Roberta, who speak English, went out of their way to make us feel at home.From the very first day that we agreed on being their guests, they were extremely helpful and promptly answered all our questions via email. For us, a mature couple, interested in the culture and Italian home-made cuisine, our hosts proved to be the BEST giving us suggestions of all sorts. Before our arrival they sent us very useful information on Rome and quick tips to enjoy our surroundings. Besides, they arranged our airport transfers with a good, trust-worthy driver which gave us peace of mind upon our arrival. The apartment is ideally located close to the Vatican, shops and sightseeing bus stops and the metro. We are very happy to have selected this property for my partner's 60th Birthday celebration in Italy. Besides, the warmth and new friendship with Roberta and Alex, we felt secure and welcomed. The flat was our "headquarters" as we traveled by train to Florence and Venice and, of course, our hosts gave us valuable tips for these trips as well. One important factor was the closeness of the Ottaviano metro station(5 blocks) from which we were able to quickly visit all the major landmarks like the Colosseum, Trevi Fountain, Plaza Espana, among others. If we could sum up our experience, it was PERFECT in every way. This property provides everything one needs: cooking utensils,cozy living room and comfortable queen bed, best location, accessible, secure and well-priced. We will come back to greet our new friends, Alex and Roberta. We highly recommend this flat for longer stays like ours. Thank you for a marvelous time in Italy!
