More than met our expectations.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six (5 adults and one 10 yr. old) recently returned from a week in this Prati flat. We found it perfect for our needs. There are 2 bedrooms on the main floor with a full bath in between the bedrooms, 1/2 bath in the living area, and a 3rd bedroom (loft-type) and full bath on the second floor. It is comfortable, spacious, clean, great location in an upscale neighborhood and with great views from the terrace. We (quite often after a day of sightseeing) bought groceries and prepared meals at "home" - what a pleasure! We had breakfast on the terrace before setting out each morning- we felt extremely Italian! There is plenty of comfortable seating in the "open configuration" of the living room, dining area and kitchen. We often watched soccer in the evening on the huge TV screen, or took our "passeggiata" for gelato at the nearby gelateria. There is also a TV in one of the downstairs bedrooms. The kitchen is extremely well appointed - plenty of cooking equipment, toaster, coffee makers, microwave, gas stove, dishwasher, clothes washer - we could have lived there forever just as we found it. Bed linens and towels were adequate, nothing fancy, but certainly fine.

A huge benefit to this flat is that the owner has a "city manager" we met us at the flat for an "early arrival", showed us the ins and outs of the flat and gave us ideas for local grocery shopping, regular shopping, restaurants, transportation, etc. She was so helpful and saved us so much time as we didn't have to search out things we needed. We walked to the Vatican, took Metros and buses to the "center" - all very accessible. There is also a doorman who was helpful as well. Nicola (the city manager) was always available (by phone and/or email) to answer any questions we had. It was extremely comforting to know that if anything went awry at the flat, we could contact Nicola.

I wish we could have stayed longer. If I had only known.....No more hotels for us! I would definitely rent here again and would recommend this flat to visitors to Rome.

Spacious, wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

We, a family of 5 , had an amazing time in Rome . The accommodations, cleanliness, and location were perfect for our needs.the Prati area is beautiful and very safe. The terrace is wonderful after a long day of touring. There is a terrific rooftop restaurant 5 minute walk away in the Orange hotel on via Crescenzi.

Grazie Mille,

Concetta

My overall impression of the property we rented in Rome was satisfactory.

  • 4 of 5

The flat we rented in the Prati section of Rome was satisfactory. The location was good and convenient to the Vatican. The only problem is misrepresentation of the number of beds and baths. There were two queen bedrooms with a bath in between for 4 adults to share.

Upstairs there was a loft with several cots and a bath with not an actual shower. This sleeping situation was extremely difficult for 4 adults that are not related. Most people my age, late 60's, do not want to share a bathroom and lofts are not official bedrooms and should not be advertised as such. The loft bathroom was more like a closet than bath for two adults. It was merely a tub with a hand held shower.

The kitchen needed a new coffee maker and the fridge needed defrosting. The kitchen was fairly clean. The entire apartment could stand more dusting, but I am sure it is a constant battle living in the city. We needed supplies i.e. toilet paper and paper towels and our manager delivered as requested. I am surprised I had to ask for these things. They should keep them on hand. Communications issues developed when a handy man came by the apartment to fix the sink that was coming away from the wall in the loft bathroom. The renters should have been told he was coming. We had no opportunity to put our things away. The manager apologized. The sitting area was pleasant and well appointed. We enjoyed this room. There are no blinds on the sitting room windows so that was the only negative. The linens were a little tired and could be updated. They were otherwise clean. Pillow cases are needed in one of the queen bedrooms.

We had wonderful time in Rome, if you want to assimilate into the culture this is a good place to stay. Very convenient to shopping, eating and the Vatican. I highly recommend Uber if you need transportation. Always prompt and available.

The Prati flat is full of possibilities and I believe if the owner would pay a little closer to details she would have this apt. rented all the time. I hope my criticisms help her. Sleeping issues keep me from giving five stars. I would give this place 3.5 to 4.

Great Holiday Trip in Rome

  • 5 of 5

This apartment location is perfect. It was away from tourists in a great neighborhood very close to the Vatican. We walked everywhere. The metro is a 5-10 minute walk from the apartment. We preferred to walk across the river to see the other sights. Nicola was extremely helpful coordinating transportation to Tivoli to see the Villa d 'Este and also booked our cars to and from the airport. She also gave us a helpful list with grocery store locations and great restaurant recommendations. The barista in the café downstairs was a little surly but the coffee was still really good. I would like to come back when the weather is warmer to be able to fully utilize the terrace. It is large with good views. It was hard to get dinner reservations for New Year's Eve so we decided to cook at the apartment. The kitchen is well equipped so we had no problem preparing a full meal. The only negative is the garbage trucks are a little loud but I am sure that is everywhere in Rome. I would definitely book again when we return to Rome.

The apartment exceeded our expectations! The location was perfect for picking up our tours from Piazza del Popolo. The cafe/coffee bar downstairs is outstanding and the restaurant arranged for us by Veronica was excellent. Thank you so much for this memorable stay. I would recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a unique place to stay while in Rome. Thanks so much.

California Guests

  • 3 of 5

The location is fabulous. It is really a 2 bedroom apt since the upstairs is so hot and it has no ac and no good blinds to block the morning sun. Our 30 yr old son slept the remaining 5 nights in the living room after one terrible night upstairs which is very sad. We carried a bed downstairs and put it in living room. He said mattress was very poor. The pillows were soiled in our master bedroom and need to be replaced right away. The toilet seat is not the right size. I recommend these updates be done. The kitchen is fantastic and so is the outdoor patio. I think a bit more attention to detail is needed. We were in this business for years. We just were in Lisbon and our Apt there was fantastic! Veronica is however nice as can. We appreciate her kindness.
