Being located close to the Vatican, we were able to walk everywhere in discovering this lovely Roman City, ticking off the sights that we had come from Perth, Western Australia to see. By walking, we were able to get a feel of Rome, its people and its history, knowing that we had a delightful 'home' in Rome to return to. Having an effective A/C system was a blessing as the days were quite hot and humid during our stay. Effective WiFi also, with plenty of personal space to spread out!
Maria-Louisa ensured that our stay of 5 days was most comfortable and enjoyable, with plenty of tourist literature readily available on hand and with frequent correspondence, responding to any questions, before our entry here. This apartment is a very good find!
Enjoyed our stay. Great walking distance to Vatican & Castel Saint’Angelo! Other touristy areas needed a short bus ride. Bus stop & metro where within 5 minutes walk from apartment. Lots of eatery, banks & shops around apartment block.
Having air conditioning in the apartment was a huge plus because Rome was an inferno during our stay with temperatures in the 90s or 33+ Celsius
María Luisa, the host is the best one you’ll ever encounter. Mille grazzie María Luisa!!
This spacious apartment is located very centrally and right across the road from the Vatican. It is one of many in the building which is quite old but beautiful. Antique lift that works well. Air conditioning was great and the apartment very clean. Maria-Luisa was a wealth of information and provided recommendations for restaurants, supermarkets and the metro etc. It was a bit far to walk to the other main attractions, but you just need to allow more time, otherwise the metro wasnt far away. Nice restaurants, bars and cafes directly outside the building which gave it a nice feel.
Fantastic location, near the Metro A line, a short walk to the Vatican and the Historic District. The apartment is in a gracious Beaux Arts building very close to the entrance to the Vatican Museum. We stayed in the apartment initially for 12 days in March and, it was so great, we stayed there for another four days in April after returning from an extended stay in the South so we could take a rest period before our trip to Northern Italy. It felt like coming home. This is an extremely quiet apartment with a large bedroom with plenty of closest space, a separate kitchen, a separate dining room, a sitting area and a nice bathroom. A beautiful wrought iron elevator takes you up to the second floor.
Maria Louisa, our charming and gracious hostess, maintains the apartment in an immaculate condition. She is quite fluent in English. She spent much time upon our arrival in giving my wife and I thorough navigational directions for getting to the monuments and museums and had many guide books and maps available for our use. Maria Louisa arranged for a taxi to pick us up at the airport and later take us to the train station. We have visited Rome twice over the last 12 months and will certainly stay in this apartment on our next visit.
This area, known as the Prati District, is quite elegant and has very fine restaurants at good prices. If you want to bring food back to the apartment to enjoy in the spacious kitchen with dining table, stop off at No Solo Pizza up the street for home-made pasta dishes, chicken and other dishes. Maria Louisa has a good list of restaurant recommendations.
The rental price for this apartment is an extremely good value considering it's location, size, and amenities.

Our stay was beautiful made better
By our stay in your flat
We couldn't see the Vatican
From the flat
But it wasn't far just around the corner
Maria-Luisa is a very welcoming host and really looked after us. It's an ideal location for the Vatican and is still close to all the main attractions. We'll come back here on our return. The area has some excellent restaurants close to hand, especially (for us) Ago e Lillo, fantastic food and the waiting staff are superb (they even taught us how to say "buono" properly).
A simple - though comfortable - appartment in the city center of Roma, just in front of the Vatican walls, in a really nice building. The appartment is perfect for two people. We were three and my stay was OK even if I slept on a pretty narrow sofa. But I wouldn't change anything. How great it was, indeed, to wake up with the sunlight and see the sacred city!
Maria Luisa was really welcoming and warm and gave us lots of ideas and tips to enjoy our stay in Roma. Moreover, she speaks a really good French - it reassured my parents who cannot speak English. She was also available for any question we could have.
Public transportation is just in front of the building. You will find restaurants, bars and shops all around.
Thanks for everything.
