Clean, well equiped, excellent location and to top it off an excellent host.
We highly recommended this location. Emidio was an excellent host he made us fill at home. He took his time and explained everything about the apartment, Emidio took the time to show us the surrounding neighbourhood and where the grocery store, bakery and where to get the best pizza, he even showed us where to purchase our bus tickets and where to catch the bus for our day trips to centre of Rome.
The rooms are spacious and extremely clean it was one of our favorite location that we stayed in for our whole trip in Italy.
Emidio also made arrangements for us to go to the Airport for our departure a few days later. We highly recommend this location.
Thank you Emidio and his mother for the excellent stay.
Mille Grazie and enjoy the gift we left you.

Thank you very much. I hope to host always people nice and friendly as you.
I hope to host you again in the next future.
Was met at the property by Emidio who showed us around the immediate area so we would know where the shops/restaurants are.
The apartment is only a few minutes walk from St Peters Square. Bus stop nearby but we walked nearly everywhere.
Apartment was comfortable and spacious. We felt very safe.
We stayed here upon a recommendation of a friend and would certainly recommend to others.
Had a fantastic time. Thank you. !
Thank you for your review. You are a nice and friendly persons. I hope to host you again in the next future.
Apartment was beautiful and a great location
Emidio was a fantastic host, showing us where the grocery store was and the bus stop, where to buy bus tickets, a good restaurant and gelato shop. We were well taken care of.
Thank you for your review. I'm happy that you had great stay in my apartment. I hope to host always people nice and friendly as you. I hope to host you again.
Location is perfect for Vatican City! The apartment was clean, nicely decorated, with heater and spacious. Markets close by as well as bus stop, metro, bank and restaurants. The only thing was the shower, my husbands quote “Shower is not for big people honey”. However, it wasn’t a too much of a big deal, it worked for us. Emidio was great, super nice person! Very helpful. The day we got there, he walked us to the bank, markets, bus stop and showed us some restaurants. He is very responsive and quick to respond too. The only thing that made it a little more difficult for us was the fact that we booked a lot of tours whose meeting points were more city center and we had to walk farther distances to get there but we were aware this was a walking vacation so we just did it.
Thank you for your review. I hope to host people nice and friendly as you. I hope to host you again in my apartment in the next future.
Very Nice Apartment & Helpful Host
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!!!
Thank you for your review. I'm happy that you enjoyed in my apartment. I hope ho host you again. All bathrooms are slippery when they are wet: for this reason in the apartment there is a bath mat. Why did not you use it?
Excellent apartment, a skip away from St. Peter's Square...
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?
I thank you for the review.
You are a wonderful family. I hope to host you again.
