Great space for a family of 4!!!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful apartment with plenty of space for a family of 4 (2 adults and 2 "adult size' teens ages 14 and 16). Great neighborhood, very near the Vatican, quiet area but still plenty to do near the apartment after seeing the sights of Rome all day. Be sure to visit L'Isola Della Pizza for a great meal and festive evening (directions in the apartment info binder). We love to walk and therefore enjoyed walking to/from almost all the "must sees" in Rome. Some of the walks are quite far from this neighborhood, however, the Ottaviano Metro station is just around the corner if you prefer not to walk. We never used it. Everything about the apartment was as described. Silvia (or Mia) are very helpful and responsive if you need anything, however, everything is so well organized and turnkey that we never had the need to contact either during our 5 night stay. I recommend this apartment and would definitely stay here again if my travels bring me back to Rome.

Great location and great accomodations

  • 5 of 5

Our first priority was to find a good place to stay in a city that I had never been to before. That's exactly what we got. Because we knew that we were going to spend most of our time around the Vatican this was a perfect location for us. It is literally right down the road. The neighborhood where the apartment is located is safe, quiet, and idyllic really.

The apartment was well-stocked and comfortable. It was a little overwhelming when we first got there but we were provided with a binder that was filled with useful information that answered every question that we had.

I completely recommend the apartment. Having a place that you can feel comfortable in while traveling is so important and this apartment did exactly that.

This apartment gets a 5 star, its location is perfect, exactaly as pictured and discribed.

  • 5 of 5

We felt very safe in this neighborhood, within short 10 min. to Vatican, Castle of the Angels and bridge, Metro is just 1 short block away. The beds are very comfortable, air conditioning works great, everything in kitchen you need to cook if you like. Plan ahead and ask to Sylvia arrange a shuttle to pick you up from Train Station or to and from airport, very honest fares as we were 4 adults with 7 pieces of luggage from cruise and a total of being away from home for 3 weeks, next time we will pack lighter and definitely book this apartment again. There are maps and books about Rome on the shelf, which we didn't see until the last day of our stay while relaxing. Taxi to Pantheon only 8 Euro, with no luggage, we used the Metro to get to Colleseum and popped up right across the street. Only 1 draw back, Mia the cleaning lady only speaks Italian, but if you know a little Spanish you will understand her and all instructions are in a book on the table and Silvia is a phone call or text away!

San Francisco


  • 5 of 5

Three of us stayed in the apartment for two weeks and found it to be very clean and comfortable. The beds were great as was the location. Best of all, the owner, Silvia, is a complete delight and extremely responsive and helpful both before we arrived as well as the entire time we were there.

Perfect Fit for Our Needs

  • 5 of 5

1) Very pleasant neighborhood with great restaurants, shops and public transportation (metro, buses and taxi-stand) nearby.

2) Walking distance to Vatican (<0.5 km).

3) Very secured building.

4) Apartment is large, clean, well stocked, and very well maintained.

5) No issues at all... but one of the showers was a bit tiny. At 6'3", I was able to use it... with some challenge/giggles.

6) Silvia, the owner, bends over backwards to please. * * * * *

Beautiful Rome Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in Rome even though it was very hot. We stayed for 7 nights and were very comfortable. We were impressed with the area and location of the apartment. Nice air conditioning! It is within walking distance to shopping, metro/buses, Vatican, and great restaurants. We felt very safe walking around at night. The online pictures are true representations of the flat. My family (4 adults) were very comfortable in the space. The showers are a bit small for American football men (my husband and son) but the closet and storage area was great. The kitchen is well equipped and Silvia was great with answering questions and arranging transportation to/from the airport for us...highly recommend that if you have several pieces of luggage! I would recommend this property to friends and relatives. If I go back to Rome, I will stay here again! Thanks Silvia!!
