Definitely would stay again!
This is a GREAT location! It was hard to imagine how close to the vatican it actually is, but you literally walk 2 blocks and under via de porta cavaleggeri and you are on vatican grounds and at the side entrance to St. Peters Square. The flat is wonderful with comfortable beds. The windows open out to the street, and our first night in the flat (on a Sunday night) there was what seemed to be a walking church service in streets around the Vatican. It was the first time we had ever experience anything like this, and we feel if we had stayed anywhere else we would have missed out on this amazing service!
The only reason we gave it 4 out of 5 stars was we were told we would have the flat to ourselves and access to the kitchen, which ended up not being the case the first afternoon/night. The first night we were limited to a single bedroom and bathroom, as the "main" part of the unit with the living room, kitchen and 2nd bedroom/bathroom were still being used by other people.The next day the owners came and had that area cleaned and we moved our belongings to that portion, and our first room was cleaned. It ended up working out fine, and we had seperate keys (there is a main hallway that connects the two areas so you get a key for the "front door" and then a key to your "unit" so you never have keys to both bedrooms if it is just the 2 of you) we just weren't expecting there to be other people in the flat (we never even saw the other people that were staying there). Like I said it wasn't a huge deal, it just kind of surprised us.
The property was well kept, clean, and fresh linens and towels. The unit looks out onto the bus stop which is very convienent for getting around all of Rome. When we come back, we will hopefully be able to stay here again!
On a side note, there are many restaurants right down the block from the flat, after spending a few days here, we found that the "La Vittoria ristorante" was probably one of the best places we ate at during our trip to Italy. Its within walking distance and has a small out door seating area, their house wine and food was reasonable and fantastic!
Thank you for a FANTASTIC stay, and hopefully we will be able to return to your great flat!
