About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

Elegant and modern apartment in Borgo Pio, in the heart of Vatican City, with an enchanting little balcony overlooking the majestic Saint Peter dome.

The flat is located on the second floor of a period building dated 1400, three hundreds meters away from the Saint Peter Basilica.

The place is fitted with air conditioning and it has been refurbished in January 2014 with exquisite taste and it is also enriched by the presence of an original beamed sealing.

The apartment includes:

- dining room/lounge with one double sofa bed,

- modern kitchen with fridge, cooker/oven and washing machine,

- double room with four poster double bed, fitted walk-in closet and an antique escritoire and chair,

- large bathroom with a king size shower.

It offers also central heating/air conditioning, flat screen Tv and free Wi-Fi.

From the house, with a few minutes walking you can reach all the major local sightseeing: Vatican Museum, Saint Peter Basilica and Castel Sant’Angelo, that once was the first residency of the Pope. Crossing over Sant’Angelo bridge you can also get to Campo de Fiori, the oldest open market in town and now the focal point of the movida romana at night. Near by you’ll find Piazza Navona, Pantheon, Trevi Fountain, and The Spanish steps, whilst shopping in Via del Corso. Strolling down the iconic fashion street of Via Condotti , you could enjoy a coffe break at historic Cafè Greco, founded in 1760, and where the likes of Stendhal, Shopenhauer and many others used to gather before.

If you prefer to move about on the public transport, Ottaviano underground station it’s located at about 5 minutes walking from the apartment. From Borgo Sant’Angelo instead the local bus n. 40 will take you to Piazza Venezia, from where all the ancient historic sites are located: Fori Imperiali , Arco di Tito, Colosseo and many others.

Top-quality home from home

  • 5 of 5

I loved my stay in this wonderfully comfortable and cosy apartment, tastefully decorated and complete with everything you need. I never tired of the view dominated by the magestic dome of St Peter's first thing in the morning and last thing at night (when it is lit up). The building and area of Borgo Pio is charming and full of character and a very convenient location, too. The owner, Daniele, is very friendly, helpful and accommodating. I cannot fault any of it and will definitely be back!

Excellent Accommodations & Location

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at La Porta Rossa Di Borgo. This apartment met or I should say exceeded our expectations. It is bright & cheery with all the accommodations you would need and even a few extras. The bonus is that you are truly a 5 minute walk from the Vatican. It's close to the bus, train and subway. Daniele was wonderful to work with and very accommodating. During our 18 day trip to Europe this apartment was our very favorite. I would highly recommend and definitely stay again.

Apartamento fantástico

  • 5 of 5

Mi familia y yo hemos pasado 6 días en Roma, el apartamento estaba tal y como está descrito en la página web, muy acogedor y con todos los detalles para hacer una estancia agradable. El propietario fué muy atento con nosotros, incluso nos ayudó a subir las maletas, nos facilitó un mapa y nos dió algunos consejos sobre la ciudad. El día de la salida nos facilitó un taxi y vino a despedirse, eran las 6 de la mañana, algo que agradecimos mucho. Si hay algo que se puede mejorar son los colchones, tanto de la cama de matrimonio como del sofá-cama, son algo incómodos. Por lo demás todo perfecto, la situación muy buena, autobuses a 2 minutos, metro a 10 minutos, supermercado también muy cercano, y muchos lugares dónde comer o cenar alrededor. Nosotros sólo para ir al coliseo y las catacumbas utilizamos el transporte público, lo demás está relativamente cerca para ir paseando. Disfrutamos mucho de nuestra estancia en este apartamento y lo recomiendo totalmente.

Ein rundum gelungener Aufenthalt

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben in La Porta Rossa di Borgo 17 wunderbare Urlaubstage verlebt. Die Wohnung entsprach in allen Details genau der Beschreibung. Darüber hinaus wurden wir von Daniele, dem Vermieter, sehr herzlich und mit einer Grundausstattung von Prosecco, Wasser, Kaffee und Panettone empfangen.

Alles, was man zum Kochen brauchte, war vorhanden, vor allem Öl, Gewürze, Balsamico usw., was man oft für andere Ferienwohnungen selbst kaufen muss.

Das Schönste ist natürlich der Blick auf die Kuppel des Petersdoms und die Tatsache, dass man nur 5 Minuten bis zum Petersplatz bzw. zur Engelsburg laufen musste. Trotzdem war es, sobald man die Tür hinter sich zumachte, herrlich ruhig.

Sehr gute Einkaufsmöglichkeiten gibt es in der Nähe und viele Restaurants. Das von Daniele besonders empfohlene - Arlù - war wirklich richtig gut.

Fazit: Tolle, schnelle Betreuung durch den Vermieter - eine sehr schön mit viel Liebe zum Detail eingerichtete Wohnung - sehr zu empfehlen!
