Overview

Prati (Vatican area) Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-5)

A spacious, comfortable, secure apartment well situated on the third floor of an elegant ‘19th century building with elevator at Via Crescenzio n° 19, just in front of Sant’Angelo Castle, walking distance from St. Peter Cathedral and Vatican Museum, and, just crossing the bridge, few steps from Piazza Navona and the Pantheon. From there the most important historical sights of the Eternal City can be reached with a short walk.

If you visited some website’s map and inserted the address you could have the correct idea about its excellent location.

Of course, since that’s a delightful very central neighbourhood, it has a good connection with public transportation to go everywhere and it is well served by a variety of local cafes, good restaurants, supermarkets, and delicatessens / convenience stores. There is a welcoming Italian café for breakfast or lunch only a few steps from the building. For those who relish cooking, a large fresh produce market (Via Cola di Rienzo) is a leisurely 5 minute walk away.

for runners: you can run at saint angel castle park or near the tiber.

for families: just inside the castle you have a lovely playground for your children if you want to relax with them!

we can also organize tours (you are welcomed to ask as you book the apartment, and book a tour before your arrival. it is hard to book at arrival since my american guide is very busy!)

The apartment was recently completely renovated. Everything is new, neat and tide and, as you can see from the pics, it’s very fine modern, high quality furnished. It consists of a queen size bedroom (italian matrimoniale mattress), a living room with a very comfortable double sofa-queen size-bed, a bathroom with shower. The fully kitchen is equipped with a dishwasher, washing machine, coffee-/espresso machine, gas stove with oven, fridge/freezer unit, toaster, hot water boiler as well as all the other necessary appliances.

pc available with printer

The apartment has air conditioning in the bed room and in the living room (daikin mini splits, great quality and functioning), parquet, washing machine, dishwasher. oven, safe box, LCD TV/Sat international channels. ADSL & Wi-Fi internet connection keeps you in touch with the world a pc is also available if u need it, and the mattress is high quality!

Combination lock without any key. That’s place is very quiet and safe at night too. An ideal residence for one couple or a family of 5 wishing (One more bed can be added) to enjoy either. short or long stays.

The treatment's friendly and helpful and I’m always trying to make good my guests. If you wanted to know some more about, you could read the feedback by the previous guests stayed in my apartments, on visiting the comments on the listing #247364, 359822, 362568, 468953

Guestbook comments from the owner

This apartment was perfect for a stay in Rome with my mother for a week. The apartment looks just like the pictures, it is sunny and beautiful. The beds and bathroom were also very nice and comfortable and the location is great and looks right over Saint Angelo's Castle! I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a nice place to stay in Rome. Additionally, Silvio was extremely helpful and assisted us in getting a car to and from the airport. He was always there to answer questions and left a lot of information about the area that we got upon arrival. No complaints about this one!

The Angel apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was much more than I had hoped for. Silvio is the perfect host. He went out of his way to make sure all was right. The apartment is in a perfect location, close enough to sights yet in a neighborhood that was quite and felt like home. We would recommend it to anyone.

When in Rome

  • 5 of 5

Silvio made my husband and I feel so welcomed before we even arrived in Rome. He was so attentive to all our travel arrangements. Silvio arranged a car to pick us up at the airport upon arrival to his apartment. The apartment was a true gem. We had Rosa help check us in who made us feel at home from the start. Silvio had a bottle of champagne waiting for us at the apartment since it was my 60th birthday celebration. The apartment has a very open floor plan, with modern decor, lot's of cheery windows and a nice outdoor terrace with a view of Castel Saint'Angelo. The apartment is situated in a very quiet, safe neighborhood. The location was walking distance to all the main attractions such as Vatican City, Spanish Steps, Piazza Novana, Trevi Fountain ect. We were even able to walk to acient Rome, and be at Colossem and Forum within 40 minutes. Every place was walkable and we never took the metro but if needed it was very close by. There were several markets, wonderful restaurants, and cafe's within a few blocks from the apartment. This apartment was the perfect place for us during our stay in Rome. I would recommend staying here and would rate it 5 stars. We had been traveling in Europe for a month and out of all the apartments we have rented Silvio was the most helpful. He offered us tour guides, restaurant recommendations and most of all helping us with our departure arrangements as well.

Roman Holiday

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was the perfect home base for our first visit to Rome! The location is idyllic. Vatican City, the Spanish Steps, Piazza Novana, Trevi Fountain are all within easy walking distance. The Ancient Center of Rome is also walkable but when you have the Metro stop for the Colosseum located on site, why not take advantage of it? Very clean and efficient system. Also Castel Sant'Angelo is a must see and right across the street from the apartment. Restaurants in the area are excellent and plentiful with one just waiting to become your favorite for your stay. Ours was Bianco Vespette e Forchette, located just outside the Vatican walls. La Locanda, Mama's and Raf's were also all very good. Silvio's apartment was just as described and Elena was there to show us around upon our arrival. It was a great visit and we miss Rome already!

Dmitry and Elena

  • 5 of 5

We rent apartments at Silvio the third time already. We very much like this region of Prati from which it is possible to reach by foot in 10-20 minutes prior to the most interesting places in Rome (Vatican, Popolo Square and Navon, gallery to Borgeza etc.). Besides, the good infrastructure allows to walk, eat well or be engaged pleasantly in shopping away from the numerous tourist directions. The apartment convenient and in it is everything to spend good time in this remarkable city. We will arrive to Silvio once again surely !!!

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

From the airport, I was met by personable, friendly and gracious Tulilio. When I arrived at the apartment, I met Elena who was efficient and warm. The apartment was exactly like the photos and meticulously clean. I was impressed with the space and loved the cooking in the efficient kitchen and sleeping on the fantastic bed after touring the majestic city!

Everyday, I either walked to tourist sites or got lost and found gems throughout the city. My ankle boots made best friends with cobble stones and the remarkable bus/metro system. I met friendly people (tourists and locals) at tourist sites, in the department stores, supermarkets and in buses/metro. I signed up for an unforgettable 4-hour food tour which was delish; potato pizza, eggplant parmigiana; suppli; parma prosciutto; juicy bufala mozzarella; 25-year old balsamic vinegar; cacio e pepe and coconut gelato just to name a few of the treats you'll have the chance to eat! Your stomach will love you.

Roma is a living museum that will enchant anyone who visits. I loved St. Peter's Basilica; climbed the cupula (a happily exhausting climb ending with spectacular views of the city); took a self-guided tour of the Colleseu and could not get enough of Piazza Navona and Pantheon.

I met Silvio on my second day when there was a thunderstorm alert. It was raining most of the day but my plans were flexible and when the rain tampered off, I was off to meet the Roma that I had been dreaming about for years. Silvio was compassionate and supportive and a joy as he cared about my well-being. He responded to emails almost instantly and made me feel secure in the new surroundings.

The neighbourhood is lovely, safe, friendly and beautiful and when I return to Roma (which I intend to do), I hope to be able to stay in this outstanding accommodation! I was delighted with the organized chaos of the city but most of all with the soul of the people (Silvio, Tullio and Elena and other Romans that I met along the way). I encouraged everyone to choose Silvio's apartments when visiting Roma. You will have an experience of a lifetime!

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

So grateful we could get this apt after being messed around by another owner. Although we didn't have the pleasure of meeting Silvio, he was in contact by email, & everything was explained by the competent Elena. Our 5 nites went without a hitch, it was extremely hot & the aircon was brilliant. We arrived by train & walked from Ottaviano station, a 10 minute walk. We flew out & the airport bus is a 2 min walk. All Rome's attractions were walkable, for us. There are plenty of supermarkets very close. Great little balcony, loved watching the cars merge on the bend & not collide! Enjoyed a traditional Italian meal at Ristorante Cesare, turn (R) out of building about 300 metres. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay, thanks Silvio.
