Perfect location in Prati

  • 4 of 5

Fabio's apartment is a gem. It looks exactly as you would expect from the photos. It is located in my favorite area of Rome -- Prati. Prati is in the center of the city, near the Ottaviano subway stop for St. Peter's and the Vatican museums. And it is very close to the historic center -- a nice walk for a walker like me. But after coming to Rome for over thirty years I like to get away to the more quiet areas occasionally, and for that Prati is perfect. Walk outside the doorway and turn left for quiet, residential tranquillity or turn right to head into the mainstream of urban activity.

Fabio's apartment is on the ground floor in what is almost a private suite of the building. There is a second bathroom, and a bridge/balcony of sorts which is perfect for taking some air, or drying laundry from the washing machine in the kitchen. or just airing out the apartment on a bright sunny day. The apartment is in the back. It can be bright and airy in the daytime with the blinds open, or dark and quiet for a perfect night's sleep. I shared the apartment for one night, and then spent two weeks on my own in my favorite city. The apartment has everything you need. I didn't cook myself, but all the materials are there for self-catering (pots, pans, plates, glasses, flatware) if that is your option. The refrigerator lacks a freezer, which turned out to be a plus for me. As a big ice user, Fabio introduced me to the owners of the coffee bar around the corner to supply my needs -- and with the additional benefit of an opportunity to speak with some natives every day. The bathroom has standard size equipment, including the standard European stall shower.

Fabio was more than helpful upon my arrival, showing me everything around the apartment and several things in the neighborhood. He was not at all intrusive during the stay. Our only contact was via email when I had to push my check-out time up by a few hours due to my flight. I'm looking forward to future stays in this wonderful find in the heart of Rome.

Lovely apartment. Close to metro and Vatican.

  • 5 of 5

Fabio was very helpful and welcoming. The apartment was comfortable and had what we needed. Air conditioning worked very well and we were always thankful for that upon our return from a day on the town. The shower is quite small and a tight squeeze if you are more than average size but we had a great time in Rome. We arrived from the airport via shuttle service and this worked very well for us! He was able to drop us right at the apartment. Thanks Fabio!!

Affordable apartment close to The Vatican

  • 4 of 5

I was a bit nervous about booking my first property outside the US, but all went well with Fabio and his quirky, charming apartment. We arrived late but that was no problem as he lives in the building. The place is comfortable and conveniently located to bus route and metro, cafes etc.

I am happy we stayed in this neighborhood as it's less hectic and has more of a local vibe. There is one bedroom, a pull out futon bed in the main living area and a little upstairs balcony with a reading area and Day bed. There is a tiny outdoor area which is good for drying laundry or getting a bit of fresh air. Two bathrooms was a nice perk as there were four of us.

We paid in cash as he is not set up to pay through the app and the bank wiring fee would have added $50. It worked out fine but did give us pause at first.

Don't hesitate to stay here when in Rome. Have fun!

Lovely apartment with great location

  • 5 of 5

Great little apartment which slept 4 adults and 2 kids comfortably. Fabio was a wonderful host (even waiting at the apartment well past midnight when our flight was delayed). He was very welcoming and gave us all the information we needed, including taking us to a fabulous local 24hr bakery close to the apartment which had the most delicious baked goods! There is a great restaurant just next door (Bella Napoli) which had great food at reasonable prices. The apartment had all the basic cutlery, etc you would need. Fabio even had a breakfast tart for us.. Location wise - we were able to walk to the Vatican within 10mins and the metro was also very close by. I would definitely recommend this apartment if you are looking for some home comforts while visiting beatiful Roma! Graci Fabio for your hospitality. We loved staying there! Ciao, The Bhana family x

Excellent location and a great value

  • 5 of 5

The place we stayed at was clean and large enough for a family of four. Fabio was incredibly polite and accommodating. The apartment has a large bed, a loft, and a sofa bed. The small kitchen is useful too. The air conditioning worked well especially on hot July summer days. For those in the military, the USO is a give minute walk! The Vatican is barely a 10 minute walk. The metro stations are close and you can be in central Tome in 20 minutes. The best part of our stay was the location. Free from tourists you get a true Roman experience. And the restaurant next door is amazing! Thank you Fabio!
