You would be hard-pressed to find a better place to stay in Rome than Angel's Gate San Pietro. From the moment we left the plane, our vacation was perfect. Alessia and Gianpaulo, our hosts arranged airport pickup and a courteous and helpful driver whisked us to the apartment, stress free. We were greeted by this delightful couple who were friendly and outgoing and spoke almost perfect English. The fridge was stocked with a bottle of wine and fresh strawberries. They deluged us with information which proved to be extremely helpful. This was in addition to the information they had already sent us earlier by e-mail. The apartment was immaculate and we were immediately struck by the image of Saint Peter's Dome greeting us from 2 of the windows and the large terrace. You know immediately you can be in no place else than Rome, not as it is sometimes in generic hotels which could be anywhere. The location is in walking distance to many major attractions and since it lies a couple of blocks from the Vatican walls, 5 minutes to Saint Peter's Square. Then if you go in the opposite direction nearby are many great eating and drinking establishments. To walk in the neighborhood is very important to us so this location proved ideal. Alessia had also arranged Omnia passes for us which we bought on their recommendation and proved very useful, especially the open deck sightseeing bus the Cristiana. That is also a must for anyone allowing you to get the lay of the land without walking your feet off. Finally, excellent beds. Great place to stay. Highly recommended.
