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


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

My husband, our 2 friends and I stayed in the apartment for 6 days. The apartment was spotlessly clean, had every amenity needed (AC and wifi were perfect!) and was close to everything. We had to call Silvio and Elena (property managers) a couple of times for questions and they answered within minutes. Highly recommend this property - and we will return as well!

Spacious. Charming. GREAT location

  • 5 of 5

We loved the space. Lots of room. Many good restaurants close by as well as several grocery / market choices. Silvio was very easy to reach and even checked in on us to be sure all the appliances and AC was working. Silvio was exceedingly flexible with our needs! Building is safe, secure and charming.

Spacious & comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We heartily recommend this apartment. My husband and I landed in Rome for our very first visit with our three teenagers (18, 15, and 13). This apartment gave us lots of room to spread out and have private sleeping space. It is close, walking distance to the very heart of Rome and we easily reached other destinations, such as the Colosseum, via the subway. We particularly enjoyed being a bit away from the very busy, tourist centers. Several delicious restaurants are close-by along with supermarkets for times when you want to dine in. We also were pleased to have access to a full kitchen with coffee maker, washer/dryer, and air conditioning! Silvio was very responsive to our needs and hospitable. We will definitely return to this apartment on our next trip to Rome.

We recently stayed at this accommodation in Rome. The apartment was very clean, spacious, and equipped with many appliances, laundry facilities, etc. The apartment is located very close to St Peters, the Tiber, and many other cool sites. We walked everywhere so for us we found this place very conveniently located. Silvio made arrangements for pick up from the airport which we appreciated very much, I would highly recommend this for any future travelers as the cost would be just about the same as the train then taxi to the apartment...and much more convenient. Overall, a very nice stay in Rome in a beautiful building and neighborhood.

Great location for touring Rome

  • 4 of 5

The property is very much as shown in the photographs. It is a perfect location for visiting the Vatican (10 min walk), close to the Bridge of Angels and the red-bus stop, walking distance to all the other major tourist attractions including the Colosseum (40 mins) and is in a nice, tree-lined part of Rome. Plenty of restaurants, supermarkets and good shopping all in close vicinity. We were a group of 6 and Silvio arranged a van to pick us up from Roma Termini, which given the amount of luggage we had, was very handy!!. His assistant met us at the apartment, which is on the top floor of a 5 storey building (with great old-fashioned lift!!), and took us through all the workings of the apartment. Overall very happy with the accommodation.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

This was I and my wife's first time to Rome and we were glad we stayed at Silvio's condo. The one thing we noticed first, after a noisy week in Florence, was how quite the condo was. Even though it was close to a busy street we did not hear much noise at all. The other people in the complex were very friendly and made for an enjoyable stay. The location was perfect for us. A very simple walk to St. Peter's Basilica and the Vatican. We did do much walking through-out Rome and could of gone the whole week without public transit but a couple times we saved our energy for walking around the sites and used public transit. Grocery stores were close. Even through the store we used was a little small we were able to find all that we needed for a week in Rome. Many restaurants in the neighborhood if you need one. Silvio's house manager was a big help. We did have a few issues at first with the door lock, stove not starting and pillows but she was able to fix all of the items in a very timely manner. A few items we could recommend for Silvio to upgrade would be a more comfortable couch and improvements to his vinyl flooring and better pillows. There is plenty of room in this condo and my wife liked the washer and dryer. Thanks Silvio for helping our stay in Rome be an enjoyable one!
