Great apartment

  • 4 of 5

We were met on time and found the place clean and all amenities were as advertised with the exception of a (recently) broken elevator (80 steps up with bags made me very unhappy). The location was close to food and shopping and it was very quiet.

Owner's Response: thank u for your review, you were very unfortunate as those days the elevator was not working properly and the assistance from the manager of the building was delayed. unfortunately these things can happen in Holiday apartments for all the owners in the building. thanks again for your stay

Superb apartment in excellent locality

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Rome and Silvio's apartment helped to make it a very special time we will always remember. We arrived mid-morning to the apartment but Elena kindly welcomed us in and we found it was as beautiful as in the photos - so clean, spacious and comfortable and equipped with everything we could possibly need to make our stay so enjoyable. We loved the balcony and the fact it was in an old building, and the local area was excellent with St Peter's Basilica and the Vatican less than 10 minutes walk. We adored Piazza Cavour and the Angels Bridge, again less than 10 minutes walk. We found some lovely restaurants in the area and lovely coffee shops. One evening we caught a local bus to Trastavere and found the local people to be kind and helpful to us when we enquired about the bus and where to get off.

Thank you very much, Silvio for the use of your wonderful apartment in such a gorgeous city.

Great Location, Quiet Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is close to the Vatican and Castel Sant'Angelo and within walking distance of many sights, restaurants galore and public transportation and yet it is so quiet. Transportation to and from the airport was arranged by Silvio (who was very responsive by email to questions we had). Elena greeted us at the apartment upon our arrival and showed us the workings of the codes and the apartment operations. We booked some excursions via Trip Advisor/Viator, as we have in other cities, and we very pleased with the quality of the tours and the guides. We had a wonderful, fun time in Rome!

Great apartment and location

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time. Apartment is located in good spot to be able to walk to the Vatican or downtown. Everything was clean and well kept. The owner was very attentive and always responded quickly to anything we needed. He helped us arrange transportation to the airport. We would stay here again for sure.

Classic flat by Castel Sant'angelo

  • 5 of 5

This is a great flat right around the corner from Castel Sant'Angelo. The apartment was clean & had everything we needed. We enjoyed the terrace overlooking the courtyard - a peaceful respite after long days of sightseeing! Our kids loved the elevator and the really impressive lock system. It also has a spacious bathroom & shower, atypical of Rome. This is a great location, 15 minutes at most from St Peters, and several great restaurants right down the street. Silvio was also very helpful with all of our needs. A great stay!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Great location within walking distance to the Vatican. Cross the river over the nearby bridge to get to the rest of Rome. St. Michael's castle had a great view from up high, so don't skip that.

The apartment is modern and had lots of light and cool air conditioning for any hot and humid days, since not enough breeze came in through the windows. The bed was very comfortable.

The bathroom had a huge mirror that my wife and I could share at the same time.

If you push the wrong button to get in the door and the light turns red, remember to push on the door while the light is still green the next time, instead of waiting for a second like the way you are initially shown. In other words, definitely ask for a demonstration on what to do if you screw up the code the first time, after you've been drinking some good Italian wine. The technique is different.

Great apartment.

So stop looking! You found the best place!
