LOCATION:

We are located in the city center, Vatican area, so the location is perfect if you want to be in the heart of Rome, but in the same time you wish a quiet and residential side street where you can sleep without noises.

From the apartment you'll be able to reach St Peter Square just walking in a few minutes, and also a short walk away there’s Villa Pamphili, the biggest Park of Rome.

The bus stops are in front of the building and it takes just 10 minutes to reach historic centre as Navona square, Campo dè fiori, Trastevere, Spanish steps, etc...

The metro station 'Ottaviano St Peter' is 10 minutes by bus.

In the area (300/500 meters from the apartment) there’re shops, restaurants, groceries, bakeries, pharmacies, supermarkets, etc..

OUR FAMOUS STREET: Via Nicolò Piccolomini - The view of St. Peter's Dome from via Piccolomini is a truly wonderful experience. Everyone know that Rome is a fascinating city. Even more so on certain days, at certain times, but above all, in certain places. Via Nicolò Piccolomini is a small residential street in the heart of the city. One of those fascinating points, where you can enjoy a splendid view of the Eternal City. The feature that makes this place a real gem, is that From via Piccolomini you see the dome of St. Peter like you've never seen before. Walking along the street, observing the Dome, something strange happens: the closer you approach it, the further the Dome moves away. If you walk backwards, the Dome looks bigger and closer. A game of perspectives that makes the view even more fascinating and the visual effect even more strange. Getting closer to a point in space and watching it move further way is not something that happens every day. Especially if the point is the Dome of St. Peter. It is a curious optical effect due to the arrangement of buildings and from the point of observation. This is why Via Piccolomini is a special place. The ideal location to beautifully end your evenings in the downtown area, or to start a romantic stroll.

-----------------------------------

HOW TO GET HERE:

- BY CAR GRA - Rome's ring road (A90), exit number 1 Aurelio / Vatican City.

- BY PUBLIC TRANSPORT: stop 'Piccolomini' of the BUS 982 - direct connection with METRO Line A 'Ottaviano San Pietro'.

A travelers worse nightmare

  • 1 of 5

We arrived at the apartment at 9:00 PM (21:00) I had originally told the owner that we would be arriving at 7:00 PM by mistake. However, I wrote her twice days before our stay updating our check-in time with the correct time. When we arrived at the apartment the delegate was not waiting by the gate to greet us like he was supposed to. We were standing out there on a dark street trying to figure which bell to ring for 20 minutes. We could not see the villa name by the door bells. Finally a man appeared by the gate and let us in. He started right out by questioning us as to why we were so late. I told him we were not late and that we emailed them twice with the corrected arrival time. Once we went upstairs into the apartment the other delegate was there and she also gave us grief for being "late"

The real problem started when I told them that my son was able to join us so we now have 4 people instead of 3. I knew we would have to pay more tax and I was prepared for that. However, they told me that I would have to pay more per day for him being there....a lot more. When I told them that I didn't think that was the policy, they abruptly told me that I don't like it, we could stay somewhere else. I was shocked by their rudeness and told them of course we don't want to stay somewhere else. We had already paid in full for the original balance and where were we going to go at 9:30 PM on a Sunday with no car.

When they gave me the new total it included a 20 Euro late fee for arriving after 9:00 PM. We absolutely arrive at 9:00 PM sharp but they didn't greet us until 9:20. When I complained that we shouldn't have to pay the late fee they again told us to go stay somewhere else if we don't like it. This was the WORST customer service and rudest I have ever been treated and it only got worse! After insisting that we did arrive at 9:00 and that we should not have to pay the late fee, I finally said fine, I'll pay it. But, the lady had enough of me. She suddenly and abruptly told us NO, you are no longer welcome here. You must leave first thing in the morning at 8:00 AM! When I told her that we have paid in full and still wanted to stay here as agreed. She then threatened to call the police on us. THIS WAS A COMPLETE NIGHTMARE. I had to beg her for 30 minutes to let us stay there and then she finally "allowed" us to. This was the absolute opposite of hospitality. Avoid this place at all cost!

Owner's Response: ...an error about planning of arrival time can happen to every Host....even more if the guest changes 4 times the fixed check-in appointment.... We apologied many times about this inconvenience... We do not have a reception, since we rent apartments and we are not an hotel with centralized services. Price stated are for a basic number of people, and added guest pays 15 euros per night, not "much much more". If a guest arrives without showing an identity document, we can not allow him to get into the property, by the law. The check-out is within h 10.30, not at 8 in the morning. Anyway I'm very proud to hear that also unhappy customers....do not say anything bad about the property, the fantastic location, the immaculate cleaning of the apartment, furniture, etc... And also I'm very proud to see that in 9 years of holiday rentals.....we have just the 2% of customers unhappy. The others....came back !

Lovely apartment great location

  • 4 of 5

This was a lovely apartment for two couples or family of four or five. The hosts were congenial, organized, thorough and were very helpful. The only drawback is that you definitely require a car as the buses are extremely unreliable.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review ! The bus front door runs every 25 minutes, but in the main street Gregorio VII there are busses to every direction, running day and night. Rome is made for walkers ;)

Maravillosa Estadía

  • 5 of 5

Estuvimos muy contentos en el apartamento. Todo estaba muy bien. Muy limpio y ordenado. Tenía todas las comodidades necesarias para pasar unos buenos días en Roma. Lia nos recibió con muchas atenciones y nos explicó todos los detalles. El espacio es muy amplio y tienen todo lo necesario.

Eramos cinco personas y estábamos muy cómodos. La cocina tiene todo lo necesario para preparar alimentos o calentarlos.

La ubicación es muy buena. Hay mucha calma y se encuentra todo lo necesario a una distancia discreta. Los buses pasan con cierta frecuencia y lo dejan a uno en ubicaciones muy convenientes. La vista de la cúpula de San Pedro es un atractivo inolvidable.

Estuvimos muy felices en este apartamento, seguramente lo vamos a recomendar y, algún día, volveremos. Gracias por todo.

Great Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful apartment!!! This is a huge place ... and there were only 2 of us ... so we had plenty of room. We initially rented it because of the view of St. Peter's, and the terrace. There is a beautiful view of the dome from the street, but not the apartment; but the terrace is fabulous. The pictures do not do it justice! The apartment was extremely clean and quiet, with 2 large bedrooms, a small single bedroom and 2 bathrooms. At first we were disappointed that there are not any restaurants or shops close, but there is a bus stop right outside the door and we mastered the schedule quickly. And... they had English-speaking TV... so we could catch up on the news. The only negative I have is that you really do need to take a bus everywhere (grocery, restaurants, sites), but the system is easy if you use Google maps. You can walk downhill to the Vatican (about 20 minutes), but the uphill walk is not for everyone.

Owner's Response: Thank you ! We are very happy about all this good things ! We are located on top of Vatican hill, St peter Square can be reached WALKING in 20 minutes. This area is safe, quiet, and in the same time very central. We can say that in 20 minutes you can get in the main historic sites. Shops, restaurants, supermarkets, ATM bank, etc...are located in Piazza Pio XI, that is 650mt from the apartment, 10 minutes WALKING. To reach the nearest Metro Station in 10 minutes (Cornelia, Metro Line A), there's the bus 791 (stop at 350mt from the apartment). The bus 982 (stop front door) brings dowtown to historic centre in many sites : 10 minutes to St Peter Basilica, 13 minutes to st Angel Castel, 18 minutes to Vatican Museums. And once in the historic centre, Roma is made to be walked....into the little corners and small ancient streets.

Great apartment - would stay there again

  • 4 of 5

It was a very nice apartment with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, EIK and living room. Also it had a huge terrace. The building itself has gated access, and in a very nice neighborhood on a hill overlooking the Vatican. The managers Lia and her Dad were quite helpful as well.

The only thing is that there are no great restaurants real close - the closest ones are 15 minutes walk. Also while it was easy to get cabs on the way back to the apartment - cabs near the apartment were difficult to get - and we needed to walk 15-20 mins to find cabs.

Owner's Response: We are very happy when guests enjoy their stay ! We give them many informations about the quartier, public transports, and also the PHONE NUMBER TO EASILY CALL A CAB, THAT USUALLY ARRIVES IN 7 MINUTES DIRECTLY AT HOME. In fact, I have to say that in Roma we do not have the habit to jump on a cab on the street: if we need a cab, we just call it :)

Deluxe apartment with all ammenities

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in the penthouse was excellent. We traveled with six adults and everyone had plenty of room and a good nights rest. We were there 3 nights and by the second night it was like home. I give 4 1/2 stars only because the location, even though it was in a nice neighborhood, was a little out of the way and we needed to take a bus (#982) or a taxi to any of the sights of Rome. (even though you could see St. Peters from the front entry) That being said, our host was most gracious and even helped us arrange taxis when the language barrier and the taxi company were holding us back. It was clean, the plumbing all worked, the Wifi and TV were in order and the coffee pot was welcomed every morning. There was a small grocery store nearby for essentials but not a lot of restaurants that you would call destinations. We had a great stay, i would certainly return, and would highly recommend this to our friends. Thank you Chiara for a fabulous stay in Rome!
