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

Great experience and fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

Our group of five loved this apartment. Very spacious with great amenities and very clean. Location is about 10 minutes walk to Vatican and about 20 minutes walk to Spanish steps.

The most important, Silvio's quick response to all requests and emails. A place that we will stay at when coming back to Rome again.

Wonderful Modern Apartment in Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

Not much more to add than the other reviewers. Great location, clean modern apartment with all amenities you need. Loved the dryer in the apartment to warm up clothes after a brief rain shower we were caught in.

Many restaurants near by, easy public transportation options and to be honest we walked to all the sites with the exception of the Colliseum.

Roomy apartment and we had plenty of room for our party of 5, this is a great apartment for families or for three couples.

Can't say enough good things and Silvio was incredibly responsive. We hope to be back!

An Excellent Stay.

  • 5 of 5

This was my second stay at one of Silvio's apartments and both stays were exceptional. I was traveling with friends so the apartment afforded us our own private space as well as some common areas. Renting an apartment is an affordable alternative to hotels, especially since many European hotel rooms are very small. This apartment is conveniently located to many of Rome's attractions in various directions, as well as to many good restaurants and several stores to stock up on any provisions one might need.

Silvio himself is a gracious host and very attentive to any needs, even those that are not urgent. In my previous stay at another apartment the Wifi was out when I arrived. Silvio speedily provided me with a mobile hotspot until the phone company corrected the issue. The apartment was very clean upon arrival and well-maintained.

I would not hesitate to rent from Silvio in the future and have already recommended him to others who have also enjoyed their stays.

Beautiful apartment; wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is very clean and comfortable with very large rooms. The location is perfect - 10 minute walk to the metro; walking distance to Castel Sant'Angelo, the Vatican, and Piazza Navona. There are several restaurants and supermarkets within a 5 minute walk...La Locanda is an excellent choice! Having a washer and dryer in the apartment was very convenient and the kitchen was fully stocked with everything you need. The air conditioning worked very well and the beds were very comfortable. The neighborhood and building both feel very safe. Silvio is very quick to respond to any questions and he arranged transport for us from the airport to the apartment which was very convenient. He checked in after we arrived to make sure everything was okay and stayed in contact with us whenever we had questions. We will definitely stay here again when we find ourselves traveling back to Rome!
