Great location close to Vatican

  • 5 of 5

Emidio's place was perfect for our family while in Rome. Its location near the Vatican and grocery store/bank/restaurants was ideal for our needs. He was very helpful in arranging rides to and from the airport. High marks in all categories.

Very Nice Apartment & Helpful Host

  • 5 of 5

A very nice cosy apartment, right next to the Vatican. Everything was as pictured and actually nicer in person. Exceptionally clean! My only warning is, be very careful in the bathroom, the shower and floor become extremely slippery when wet...in fact my friend actually slipped while getting out of the shower, fell, and ended up with a nasty bloody gash on the side of her head!

The area seemed very safe, in fact there is a police station just at the end of the ally to the left, and there are bus stops along the main street, steps from the apartment. The best & cheapest way to get around Rome to see the sights is by bus (lines 916, 87, 64). Looking at a map of the city, you would think everything is so spread out, but actually everything is closer then you might think. Just be prepared to walk, A LOT during your stay!!! The metro is also another cheap way to get around, however, the closest metro station is Ottaviano and is a long distance to walk from the apartment, but it's easy to find and quite do able, if you would rather travel by metro instead of by bus. Once inside St. Peter's Square, you have to cut directly across to get to the street the metro is on and just keep walking straight til you get to the station, it will be on your right hand side.

The BEST restaurant closest to the apartment (just across the main street to the left) was Papa Rex. I wish we had found this restaurant our first night and not the last, cause this would have been the ONLY restaurant I would have eaten at the whole trip (yes, it was that good!!!) It received a TripAdvisor award 2017.

Changing currency: I recommend getting just enough money changed to euros at the airport to get to the apartment, and then changing the rest of your money at the bank next to the apartment. Commission to change money is a killer!!!

Finally, the host, Emidio was very helpful. He and his mother were at the apartment when we arrived and they gave us a tour of the neighborhood. There is a bank, a little health supply store (laundry soap, sanitary napkins, hair color, etc.), market, post office. Emidio was kind enough to arrange our airport transfers for us and communication was always very good. I must have sent him 20 messages with questions about how to get around and what he recommends, while we were there, all of which he answered. Such a nice patient man!!!

I would definitely stay here again, the next time I visit Rome, and would recommend it to everyone!!!

Excellent apartment, a skip away from St. Peter's Square...

  • 5 of 5

Emidio's lovely, bright, clean apartment is ideal if you want to explore the Vatican basilica, museums and Castel St. Angelo. A little further, and you're in central Rome. Near to transport links but great if you don't mind a bit of a walk, too. We happily trotted off to the Galleria Borghese, Victor Emmanuel monument and Colosseum complex. To reiterate what everyone says, do book ahead if you want to avoid the queues. You have to book the Galleria Borghese anyway. Emidio and his Mum made us very welcome and Emidio showed is where the shops were and arranged our transport to and from the airport. Thanks for that. Lovely week. Hope to be back. What are you waiting for?

Large, well appointed apartment, perfectly located for the Vatican

  • 5 of 5

This two bed apartment is perfectly located within easy walking distance of St Peters Basilica. It is very well equipped and beautifully furnished. The host, Emidio, is very welcoming and took the time to show us where the local supermarket, post office and restaurants were along with public transport stops. We took a day's leisurely stroll from the apartment to the Colliseum and from there through the old town taking in sights such as the Trevi Fountain, Pantheon etc. Stopping along the way at some lovely pavement cafes for food and beverages before returning to the apartment. The apartment is on the 5th floor but there is a lift. Would highly recommend staying here if visiting Rome.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

Location, Location, Location! Perfect. The kitchen is a galley, well stocked, and efficient. Emidio the host is most helpful and even gave us a tour of the neighborhood. So we knew where the grocery store and a safe atm were located from day one. Very clean and comfortable. I would recommend to anyone in my family and that says a lot! Thank you Emidio, we hope to be back!

Lovely spacious holiday apartment

  • 5 of 5

We all felt it was beautifully clean and spotless and tastefully firnished. We had a great week and the apartment was within short reach of a lot of the main places of interest. We received a lovely welcome from Emidio and his mother and Emidio showed us around the neighbourhood where we also had our evening meals which were reasonably priced. We highly recommend it and would recommend it to all our friends and family. The apartment was everything we expected and more. We found Emidio to be very helpful and provided very good customer service.
