Rione XXII Prati Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-7)

A spacious, comfortable, secure apartment well situated on the fourth floor of an elegant 19th century building with elevator at Via Vittoria Colonna:

We are located at 900 meters from the Spanish steps.

Only a 7/8 minute walk to the Spanish Steps, 10 minutes to Piazza Navona, and 15 minutes to Saint Peter's Cathedral & the Vatican Museum. From this location, the most important historical sights of the Eternal City can be reached very quickly like Trevi Fountain or Saint Angel Castle! And if you don't want to walk you can arrive to Saint Peter's by bus #87 or Colossuem by bus #81 (the bus stop is just in front of our building!)

Search the address on the web and you'll be able to see its excellent location.

The apartment was recently completely renovated. Everything is new and neat, and as you can see from the pictures, it’s very modern, with high quality furnishings. This is a 2 bed rooms apartment: one master suite with en suite bathroom and a smaller bedroom with 2 single beds that can turn into a queen size bed with a second bath. Both rooms have high quality mattresses!

There is also a lovely and spacious living room with a double sofa bed, a dining area and separate kitchen! The kitchen is fully equipped with a dishwasher, washing machine, American coffee maker, kettle, gas stove with oven, fridge/freezer unit, as well as all the other necessary appliances like, iron and ironing board!

The apartment has air conditioning in both rooms and in the living room (daikin emura mini splits, great quality and functioning), parquet floors, iphone-ipod stereo, LCD TV/Sat to watch international tv channels in every room. ADSL & Wi-Fi internet connection keeps you in touch with the world, last but not the least we provide a pc and a printer to let you print boarding passes or tickets for museums or simply surf the web! and a land line to received phone calls from your beloved and to make locals and national phone calls!

Of course, since it’s in a delightful central neighborhood, it is well connected to public transportation to go everywhere and it is well served by a variety of local cafes, great restaurants, supermarkets, and delicatessens / convenience stores. There is a welcoming Italian café for breakfast or lunch only a few steps from the building, by the way: this neighborhood is the safest in Rome!

The apartment has only one key for the main front door and the apartment itself has no keys - only digit codes so that you don't have to worry about losing the keys.

The treatment's friendly and helpful and I’m always trying to make sure my guests have the best experience in Rome. If you want more information, feel free to read the feedback from previous guests that stayed in my apartments (see the comments on listings #247364, 362568, 359819).

We accept payments on-line with credit card on our web site and we provide assistance with drivers and tour companies!

I welcome your inquiries and questions and will respond within one business day.

every guest after the 4th pays an additional rate of 30 euros daily.

for runners: you can run at saint angel castle park or near the tiber or just inside the city center

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!)

This is a self catering apartment. you will find basic toilet paper, hand soap,

for every additional need u can find all that u need at the supermarket

About Silvio Spicacci Minervini

i am 40 and got married july 2012!

i really love meeting my guests, even though because we have about 2000 guests every year, i am not able sometimes to meet everybody, but keep in touch regulary though land line phone or email.

my family and i have started this turistic company, in the summer 2013 we will have 5 owned apartments and we plan to have 8/9 apts in 2014.

it is a big effort and now it has become my full time job.

Silvio Spicacci Minervini purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Silvio Spicacci Minervini chose Rome

because it is the perfect area. it can be reached by car as no traffic block, and from there u can arrive anywhere in the city

it is incredible silent, which is a plus in roma, and the air conditioning is really excellent.

plus there is an elevator!

great restaurants nearby: you have to try splendor or la barchetta restaurants!

really excellent!!!!!

What makes this apartment unique

it's silence,you will sleep peacefully!!! compared to roman noise!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Normally the downside of an apartment is you are on your own for tips, recommendations etc. Silvio is, however, a great host and always available, even sending you emails during the stay to stay in touch. This apartment is roomy and spotless, but most of all it is quiet - a wonderful place to escape to after a hectic day in noisy Rome. I would certainly stay here again, and would recommend to friends and family.

Close to Everything

  • 4 of 5

The Apartment was a little gem well within walking distance to everything. Large living and dining area, two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The kitchen had just about everything you could need, including some supplies to get us started. It was quiet with comfortable beds. The shower in the first bedroom probably needs a little attention.

Silvio was there to greet us and show us around the apartment. He gave very detailed instructions on how things worked, local restaurants, supermarket etc. He was very approachable if something went wrong. He also had an information folder telling you where everything was, including telephone numbers and websites.

There was a great little patisserie over the road if you wanted fresh croissants in the morning. The supermarket was just a short walk away.

Some great restaurants in the area too. The little restaurant around the corner called Pizzeria La Francescana - great home made Italian food. Book a table, this place has queues every night.

The only downside was the second bedroom. There was nowhere to put your clothes, except in the hallway. A small chest of drawers or two bedside tables with drawers would have made it a little more comfortable. For our 3-4 night stay it wasn't too bad but any longer it would have been a bit cramped.

The air-conditioning worked well. Silvio also organised a car to take us to the airport on our departure day. 55 Euro (no tips) was a good fare considering taxis cost 48 euro.

Overall the apartment was 4 stars for its location and 3.5 for the accommodation. Would I stay here again - probably!

Very nice flat-central location.

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice flat located within walking distance to the Vatican, Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain and Pantheon. There are restaurants right across the street and around the corner. The beds were very comfortable and the family room was spacious. The wifi worked well and cable tv was nice to have since the olympics were being held during our stay. I would recommend this flat to family and friends.

Wonderful apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The apartment was spacious and well equipped. WiFi and A/C made it very comfortable.

The location was excellent, with bus stops in both directions just outside (get the MeMovo app). Easy access to restaurants, and the city itself, with small convenience stores nearby.

Silvio was extremely helpful - we had a very comprehensive handover from Eleanor and his driver Tulio collected us to and from the airport, allowing a seamless experience.

We would stay here again !

GREAT location. QUIET apartment. Will be back!

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is located in a GREAT spot! I LOVE how I can walk to everywhere! Yet the apartment was so quite! It was well insulated from the road noise. The bed was great and I liked the AC in every room! The kitchen had everything I needed. Well, the kitchen did not have a spatula and cooking oil. But after a single message to Silvio, they were in my kitchen the next day!! Silvio is on vacation and he was so responsive! I can't imagine how quicker he will be when he is around.

The ONLY reason why it is not 5 star is because the shower can be cleaner, especially on the second bathroom. I see dust under the bed and on the door molding, the second shower had stain that could be scrubbed off. But hey, my home is not spotless. It was not different than my home. I need to emphasize that this did not bother me and I did not inform Silvio about it. I am sure he would have sent a cleaner immediately but it wasn't necessary for the comfort of my family.

The pick up service from the airport was 75 euros, and it was worth every penny. We have three young kids and it would have been a disaster if we were to navigate through public transportation system with luggage. The van driver (Tullio) was waiting for me with my name on the sign at the exit and he carried my luggage to the car. He was right on time and very helpful. I enjoyed it so much so that I arrange another pick up service to the airport.

Overall, Silvio made out first trip to Rome so comfortable and memorable. I will DEFINITELY stay at this location in the future again.

Thank you Silvio!

One thing that is very important that I also write on the contract is: please talk please tell me if there is something not Ok for you as I would take care of it with my employees. I am really sorry for this issue on the shower. Still if you had emailed me.. thus would have been solved in a very short time Regards

Excellent Apartment, Location and Host!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the apartment! The apartment is beautifully decorated and furnished. It has AC, a well supplied kitchen and a great security system. It is in a beautifully maintained building.

The location is amazing - across the street from two restaurants, ATM, mini-market and a gelato store all on the same block!

We were able to walk everywhere from the apartment! Location can't be beat!

I would stay there again!
