ANGEL'S HOME FREE WIFI, FANTASTIC BALCONY, ELEVATOR

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!

An oasis of calm in the centre of Rome

  • 5 of 5
We (a family of three) stayed five nights in this lovely apartment. It was very comfortable, and in an ideal location, close to shops and restaurants, a short walk to St Peter's and the Vatican, or across the bridge to Piazza Navona. Silvio arranged transport for us to and from the airport, and everything went very smoothly. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would gladly stay here again - we would recommend this apartment to anyone!

Outstanding!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in Silvio's St. Angel apartment for 5 nights. All our expectations were met or exceeded. The apartment is secure, spotlessly clean and modern. It has been updated above the pictures here on the VRBO listing :) Silvio was very responsive to all inquiries before our stay and checked with us via text message almost immediately after we arrived. His housekeeper met us and showed us in and showed us all the features of the apartment. It is in a great, safe neighborhood. The bed was the most comfortable we slept on during our 6 week European adventure. The AC was super cool and worked well. The wifi worked flawlessly and fast. It was nice to have the washing machine but a bigger drying rack would be appreciated. The building is lovely and the elevator? Wait till you see it and use it. Priceless, vintage and soooo cool! There is a lot of traffic noise from below but once you close and lock the windows you have to stain to hear it. Restful sleep is not a problem here. We bought a 7 day metro pass but only used it on 2 days. Otherwise we walked where we wanted to go without a problem and always felt safe. We bought most supplies at Pam Express where Silvio provided directions. No problem to get what we wanted/needed. However, if you go left out of the building and walk one block to the light, right across the street is a sweet little shop where you can buy wine, meats, cheeses that we didn't discover till our last day. What a shame because we would have definitely frequented this place. Right next door to that is the restaurant/bistro called Mama that we ate at twice. Outstanding service and food! Try it! We wouldn't hesitate for one moment to stay here again or in any of Silvio's apartments.

My Stay at SilviosHolidayHomes

  • 5 of 5
Besides being a top notch value for your money, the best thing about SilviosHolidayHomes is Silvio. He owns all of his properties as well as manages them. He speaks perfect English, he is very patient and attentive. He takes great pride in his properties, and it shows. I was in the Saint Angel Apartment. It had an air conditioner in the living-dining room area and one in the bedroom. Both were state of the art, remote control, extremely quiet and worked fantastic. There is WiFi in the room that was very fast and I had absolutely no down time. The kitchen had everything you will need to cook your own meals and utensils to eat with. A very large refrigerator and freezer, gas stove, microwave, toaster, coffee maker. Two brand new Samsung flatscreen TV with PC, ISDA, USB connections. I loaded up with a lot of movies on my USB before coming. They played perfect. The bedroom has a large bed and plenty of closet space. The bedroom has a great view out beautiful windows that open inward. They windows are about 10 foot high, they are ornate and very beautiful. There are shades that pull back for your privacy. The living/dining area is spacious and comfortable. In your living room are French doors that open inward to a small, but beautiful balcony. My wife and I had breakfast on it several days. The view of St.Angelo's Park is outstanding. If you were in an hotel, you would pay an additional $100 a night for this view. When you close the doors, you have "Almost" absolute silence. In Rome you cannot block out all the noise from the street. But this is as close as it comes. The bathroom is modern and spacious with all the outlets you need and it comes with a hair dryer. Toilet and a bidet. Nice shower. And a window to look out on with curtains. And much more.

One of the things I really enjoyed was the fact that I had absolute security. The apartment complex and your specific door does not require you to ever carry a key. Nothing to lose, no bulky keys in your pocket to worry about. There are digital combination locks for each. And there are 4 bolts that lock the door automatically. I had no fear of anyone getting into my room. The apartment has an elevator that I fell in love with. It is mahogany and brass, smooth and ultra quiet. Very elegant.

I couldn't have been happier in this apartment. But I will say it again, Silvio is so attentive and caring about your comfort and happiness, I don't know how he manages his time.

Great location and attentive owner in Rome near Vatican

  • 5 of 5
The apartment is located in a very convenient location near the Vatican and Castel Sant Angel. The neighborhood, mostly residential, is nice and clean, with a great street (Via Cola di Rienzo) only two blocks away to go shopping or doing groceries. The apartment is just as shown in the pictures, with high ceilings. It is sunny and well renovated with a nice bathroom with shower, a convenient kitchen for those like us who prefer buying local food and cooking it here and a comfortable bedroom with lots of available space for clothes and other things.
The apartment does overlook a park behind Castel Sant Angel which makes it very pleasant. It is however overlooking a busy street with a lot of traffic, which makes it noisy when windows are open. The traffic does calm down during the night. The balcony is nice although very small, with just enough room to have a small table and two chairs.
The building itself is quiet and you rarely hear anything, even when going in and out. There is an "old fashion" elevator, with manual doors, that is a real antique beauty, but also safe and convenient.
Silvio, the owner, is very attentive to the needs of his guests. From our initial contact to inquire and rent to our stay, he was always very responsive, answering emails within a few hours and helping to make us feel welcome and comfortable. As an example, the day we arrived, we mentioned to him that we had bought some good wine but were a bit disappointed that he only had small wine glasses in the apartment. He went out and bought two new nicer and larger wine glasses the same day! He also bought a new table cloth and place mats following our request. He really cares and acts rapidly to make things better.
We have been renting apartments from owners in several locations and this was definitely one of the very good experience for us.
For nearby shopping, via Cola di Rienzo is great with so many nice shops. For groceries, there is a local market, as well as specialized places not to miss: Franchi for prosciutto, cheese and cooked roman specialties and Castroni for just about any gourmet things you may think of. There is also a brand new grocery store located in the basement of the Coin Excelsior shop, it is call Eat's. It is nice and modern, with an interesting selection. It had opened very recently. For wine, you will find some in the stores mentioned, but for a wider selected, the Enoteca Costantini on Piazza Cavour, two blocks away, is good. Avoid their restaurant however.
