Overview

About the property

3 Double Bedrooms, 2 Baths

A spacious and comfortableb apartment located in an elegant ‘19th century building with elevator at Via Pietro della Valle 2, just in front of Sant’Angelo Castle, walking distance from St. Peter Cathedral and Vatican Museum, and, just crossing the bridge, few steps from Piazza Navona and the Pantheon. From there the most important historical sights of the Eternal City can be reached with a short walk.

If you visited some website’s map and inserted the address you could have the correct idea about its excellent location.

Of course, since that’s a delightful very central neighborhood, it has a good connection with public transportation to go everywhere and it is well served by a variety of local cafes, good restaurants, supermarkets, and delicatessens / convenience stores. There is a welcoming Italian café for breakfast or lunch only a few steps from the building. For those who relish cooking, a large fresh produce market (Via Cola di Rienzo) is a leisurely 5 minute walk away.

for runners: you can run at saint angel castle park or near the tiber.

for families: just inside the castle you have a lovely playground for your children if you want to relax with them!

we can also organize tours (you are welcomed to ask as you book the apartment, and book a tour before your arrival. it is hard to book at arrival since my American guide is very busy!)

The apartment was recently completely renovated. Everything is new, neat and tide and, as you can see from the pics, it’s very fine modern, high quality furnished. It consists of 3 double queen size bedrooms, a living room with a very comfortable double sofa-queen size-bed, 2 bathrooms: the first with tube/shower, the second with shower.

The fully kitchen is equipped with a dishwasher, washing machine, coffee-/espresso machine, gas stove with oven, fridge/freezer unit, hot water boiler, coffee maker as well as all the other necessary appliances.

pc available with printer

The apartment has air conditioning in all the rooms (total 5 - daikin mini splits, great quality and functioning), parquet, washing machine, dishwasher. oven, 5 LCD TV/Sat international channels. ADSL & Wi-Fi internet connection keeps you in touch with the world.

That’s place is very quiet and safe at night too. An ideal residence for larger groups from 4 to 9.

The treatment's friendly and helpful and I’m always trying to make good my guests. If you wanted to know some more about, you could read the feedback by the previous guests stayed in my apartments.

I welcome your inquiries and questions and will respond within one business day.

This is a self catering apartment. you will find basic toilet paper, hand soap,

for every additional need u can find all that u need at the supermarket

important:

rates the basic rate is for 4 guests.

every additional guest after the 4th is +30 euro

the web site doesnt give a good idea of price range.

of course the price for 6-9 guests is differente from the rate for 4

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wow we were absolutely stunned about this place!!! Absolutely gorgeous and the location was amazing!!!! We unfortunately were unable to meet Silvio. It was not his fault though. We were late to our arrival because of a marathon and could not take a taxi or bus from the train station. So we had to take the metro. It took us close but by the time we finally arrived we were an hour late. Fortunately Silvio had a representative meet us that took care of everything and was very helpful. If I am ever back in Rome I am definitely staying here again!!!ù

Luxury Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is a modern, clean and large apartment with all the necessities. Silvio, the owner, is very attentive and responds immediately to all questions and problems. While there, one of the hair dryers broke and it was immediately replaced by him although there was also a spare. The location is on the same side of the river as the Vatican and is an easy walk on the bridge to all the other major sites. Good restaurants and shops are nearby. I highly recommend this apartment if you are looking for the comfort of home in Italy.

Spacious Apartment in an Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying at the Silvio Spicacci Minervini’s vacation home. It was lovely to have access to a washing machine, we appreciated the variety of coffee "machines", and a wonderful assortment of pots, pans, cutting boards, and knives. Turning on a dishwasher took a few tries but was well worth it for our large group.

Location is wonderful. You can practically see the St. Angelo Castle from the building (its hiden behind another building). Its a short walk to the Vatican and is in a walkable distance to the Spanish Steps and Colosseum.

Silvio arranged a ride for us from the Airport which was very convenient. Thank you, Silvio!

Comfortable, roomy flat in Rome

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I stayed in this flat for 4 nights. The apartment is located in a quiet area near the Vatican, amidst a neighborhood that has some very good restaurants, cafes, gelateria, and shops. The location is very convenient, not only to the Vatican but also to all the other sites in Rome. We walked to the Trevi fountain, Spanish steps, and Pantheon in 10-15 minutes, as well as to the Travestere area, which I highly recommend for its restaurants and neighborhood feel. Silvio was excllent to work with, both leading up to and during our visit. He arranged for a driver to meet us at the central Rome train station, which was very convenient. The unit was quite large and roomy, especially for just the two of us, matched what you see in the pictures. The beds were comfortable, and the apartment was very clean. Highly recommended.

Absolutely magnificent! Everything was top notch!

  • 5 of 5

Super clean! High end appliances, Bosch washer and separate Bosch dryer. Everything was provided for and in excellent condition! The apartment was luxurious. 3 large bedrooms with ultra comfortable beds. Televisions in every room. Spacious closets with lots of hangers to hang your clothes and easy glide drawers for your socks, etc. We arrived at midnight due to mechanical difficulties with the plane and were met by Elena who gave us a tour of the apartment and kindly showed us how everything worked . Even though we must have gotten her out of bed she was very gracious and kind. From the moment we stepped into the apartment to the moment we left it felt like home . Two separate bathrooms with all the hot water you could want and then some. 4 of us had a truly memorable stay here! We hope to return and highly recommend this place ! Thank you Silvio and Elena! This was the highlight of our European vacation!!!

Great location and spacious condo

  • 5 of 5

Very nice condo near the Castel Sant Angelo. Great location to walk about anywhere in the downtown Roma area. Restaurants and markets are close by. Subway was about 8 blocks away. Nicely furnished with comfortable bed (or maybe we were just tired - we slept well!). We would stay here again.
