Lovely and elegant apartment is located in Via dell’Argilla, short and fairly characteristic street 15 mt. long, very close to the Vatican City and its S.Peter square (300 mt.). The houses along the street, aged 1920’s are totally renewed in the facades by typical roman colors.

Because of its cultural and historical sites together with the several shops, supermarkets, bar and pubs, cinema and theatre, the distict is populated, daily and nightly, by pilgrims and tourist.

Hundred and fifty metres from the apartment you will enjoy make shopping at the local open market, every morning except Sunday, where buying fresh fruits, vegetables and fishes is really economic and very characteristic.

A new Carrefour supermarket has been recently open at only 50 meters and it remains open 24 hours a day 7 days a week (breakfast every morning is possible).

Spagna steps, Navona square, Colosseum and other famous sites can be easily reached by bus to be taken 50 mt. from the apartment.

Clean, comfortable, quiet and convenient

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 weeks in Giorgio and Graziella's apartment. They were lovely hosts, meeting us and explaining everything. The apartment was excellent. It was very clean and well-equipped (kitchen, washing machine, drying rack, etc). The bed was comfortable. The temperature was fine. Even on the few colder nights (it was January) the heater worked very well. The hot water was hot and the shower a good size. The Internet connection was very reliable and fast. The apartment was surprisingly quiet. Having a fresh food market open 6 days and a good sized Carrefour supermarket (24 hours 7 days) both within about 100 metres was good. Public transport into the old part of Rome was close - buses 100 metres away and Roma S. Pietro train station about 500 metres. There were plenty of restaurants, cafés and pastry shops close by. Everything added to make our time in Rome memorable.

Great Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is great! It is super clean, spacious enough for 2 couples, and in a great location! The bus stop was basically right outside, which was so convenient. The washer worked perfectly. We were also able to use the kitchen to make a couple of meals at home, which ended up being so much cheaper than going out! There is a grocery store right around the corner which is open 24/7.

Giorgio and his wife are great hosts. They met us at the apartment even though we came a little later than expected due to bus delays. Giorgio knows English very well and was very helpful when we had question about the bus route. He also arranged a private driver for us when we had to get to the airport early morning.

Would definitely recommend this place to anyone!

Quiet, clean and close to Vatican

  • 5 of 5

Giorgio was a wonderful host and met us outside of the apartment shortly after our arrival (we arrived a little earlier than expected). He explained everything we needed to know and responded quickly when I had a question about the washing machine. The apartment is older and up several flights of stairs but this is common in Italy. It is comfortable and clean and the air conditioning provides a welcome haven from the July heat! The second bedroom did not have a AC unit, however, so it was necessary to leave the door open during the night or else it would get very warm and stuffy. If you don't mind walking, you don't really need public transit at all. We only used a taxi to get to the train station and to make it to the Colosseum and Borghese gallery first thing in the morning. We walked home from both. There's a grocery store and wonderful bar/cafe ("Little Bar") just down the street. The owner was so friendly and we even had to stop by to say goodbye before we left. Stop by and tell him that his 4 friends from Canada who loved his cappuccino highly recommend him! :)

We had a wonderful stay here and would recommend it!

Good, clean facilities in a good location.

  • 5 of 5

Perfectly adequate for four adults. Actually has two bedrooms, so no need for anyone to sleep on a bed settee in the lounge, unlike other places we've stayed at. Lovely helpful host. Will certainly consider staying here again.

I sincerely recommend this property for it's size, convenient location, cleanliness and certainly the hosts. We were greeted at the curb as the taxi drove up. The orientation to the apartment was thorough and our location and nearby activities were carefully explained. Because we would be leaving at 0330 for the airport our host graciously arranged a car and driver for us which was so appreciated.

I will say there is no lift so prepare for flights of stairs, but walking to the Vatican past restaurants, flower shops, coffee, pastries and gelato every day more than made up for them! We would definitely stay here again.

This is an excellent apartment. Great stay.

  • 5 of 5

Giorgio Carlotto's apartment at Via Del' Argilla 15 is an excellent place to stay in Rome. Very affordable. Safe and secure building. The apartment is spacious and has all the amenities for a pleasant stay. The air conditioning is very good, especially in July, Rome is very hot. It is walking distance to the St. Peter's basilica. The bus stops and train stations nearby connect to pretty much everywhere in Rome. There is an open market nearby plus Carrefour Express plus dozens of small grocery stores, eateries, pizzerias, etc. Giorgio and his family responded very quickly to our needs. They are very well organized.
