About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Beautiful and sunny apartment in one of the most wonderful streets in Rome.

Within seconds on foot to St. Peter's and the subway stop 'Ottaviano', in one of the most beautiful and lively neighborhoods of the eternal city, you cannot ask for a better place to stay for your Roman holiday!

The apartment was completely renewed in late 2012, so everything is new, neat and tide and, as you can see from the pictures, it is fully furnished. The place is quiet and safe at night too.

On the third floor of a late splendid 19th century Roman building with elevator, the flat has two double bedrooms - both can be arranged to have two single beds - and a very comfortable sofa bed in the living room that can accommodate two more people.

Amenities include built-in air conditioning in every room and autonomous heating system, flat 32' TV screen, wireless high-speed internet connection as well as double glazing windows.

The apartment has two bathrooms, one equipped with a shower and the other one with a bathtub that can be used as a shower as well. The boiler installed in the kitchen supplies unlimited hot water. We also provide clean towels and sheets for every guest, complimentary soap and shampoo, and you can find a hair dryer in the bathroom.

The apartment also has a very big kitchen, fully equipped with a dishwasher, a gas stove, a fridge/freezer unit and a washing machine as well as all the other necessary appliances. An iron and an ironing board are also provided.

Smoking is not allowed in the apartment.

Check in is at 2 pm and check out is at 10 am.

Perfect for our needs

  • 5 of 5

It was a very nice place to go back to after the hustle and bustle of the city. Andrea was super to work with and helped us get in and out easily in a city not so easy to get around. The grocery was close, the nearby restaurants were great and we would totally stay there again upon our return. Thanks so much!

We are so thankful we chose this apartment for our 5 day stay in Rome! We are a family of 5 (2 adults with 3 teenage daughters) who ended a 20 day stay in Germany/Switzerland/Italy with a 5 day stay in Rome.

Top reasons why we would stay in this apartment again:

1) Beautiful, comfortable, well-appointed apartment. (Air conditioning works well; two bathrooms a huge plus with multiple people getting ready for the day; good water pressure & plenty of hot water for the group; nicely stocked full kitchen; washing machine for laundry needs; little extras like soap/shampoo). :o)

2) Well-located apartment with easy access to metro, buses, market/grocery store & Vatican sites, as well as historical/cultural sites!

3) Andrea, the host, is AMAZING! He provided a handy notebook with "local" details and helpful tips and a very useful map. He graciously arranged our transport (with nice drivers) from the train station to the apartment and the apartment to the airport (a nice perk considering hot Rome summers and the multiple transfers needed from train/bus/metro while managing luggage). He arranged for Luca to orient us to the apartment (Luca was very helpful, informative and patient).

Andrea was also readily accessible for questions or concerns. For instance, we wanted to take a day trip to the nearby beach & he gave us CLEAR/easy directions in such a timely manner. Another remarkable example of his availability & responsiveness ~ During our stay, one of the kitchen skillet handles broke while preparing a meal. I notified Andrea of the broken skillet (just so he would be aware of it/not requesting anything else of him) and within a few hours he had TWO NEW SKILLETS hand-delivered to the apartment. We were so shocked by his quick responsiveness and this remarkable level of service!

We also really enjoyed the local (non-touristy) restaurants he suggested! :o)

We have stayed at numerous HomeAway, VRBO, Air BnB locations across the USA and Western Europe over the past several years. This is our favorite one in all of Italy! We would definitely stay here again or, if it is booked, look into other properties managed by Andrea and "RomeLikeHome"!

Thank you, Andrea! This is a great apartment and you are a great host!

Rome Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was in a perfect location about 1/4 mile from the Vatican with a number of nice restaurants within walking distance. Andrea (manager) was incredible, and provided us with a guide as to transportation, restaurants, etc. to make our stay in Rome more enjoyable. The one downside is that it can be a little noisy at night, as there is a restaurant with outdoor tables next door. However, with the windows closed, the noise was barely noticeable. We would highly recommend this apartment to a family visiting Rome. Also, if you want an amazing Colosseum tour, check out Dario from Mind The Guide, as your guide. Schaals, Irvine, CA

Clean, close and convenient.

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay with Andrea and as it was the first time, it was exactly what we'd hoped for. Even when the shower broke, Andrea had it fixed within hours (despite the holiday weekend). He arranged for transport to and from the airport, made us feel welcome and left us a bottle of wine and snacks (❤️🍷). Andrea has been our communicant for years now and I know he goes out of his way to make sure everything is perfect. Stay no where else!

Excellent property.

  • 5 of 5

The property was as described on the website. It was clean and well maintained, very spacious and comfortable. The owner offered excellent customer service and got back to me immediately about any inquiry. I would definitely recommend this property to anybody interested in visiting Rome and I would stay there again. The property is near Vatican City and St. Peter's but I was able to walk to most areas of the city. The apartment had a neighborhood feel to it. There were several restaurants on the same street which were pleasurable and I was able to walk to a large market nearby. We also enjoyed a nice sushi restaurant which was about a 15 minute walk.
