About the property

3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 8

Vaticano flat is a comfortable, large apartment located in Vatican Area (Prati), at the hedge of the historic district, bordered by a bustling shopping area and provided with excellent services and transportation links. It is suitable for a family or for a professional residence. Ottaviano is the nearby metro station. This is a non-smoking facility.

The building, built in the 20' and renovated in 2013, consists of 5 storeys, topped by a rooftop terrace. Many of the families who bought in the past still reside there, an indication to the stability and safety of the area. Some of the surrounding buildings are of the same period. Vaticano Flat is on ground floor.

The flat covers ca. 85 sq. mts. and has graceful details and parquet floors. It consists of a large entrance, a dining room, a full kitchen, 3 bedrooms (one with a queen bed and the others with 5 single beds) and one bathroom (with a large shower), this flat can accomodate a maximum of 7 people.

Vaticano Flat is a traditional italian house in a 20' building but has been recently renovated.

About Francesca Giorgini

I'm a Room Division Manager for a Luxury Hotel in Central Rome.

Francesca Giorgini purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Francesca Giorgini chose Prati

I bought this home for my family but after 2 kids we decided to move to a large apartment.

What makes this apartment unique

The flat is very conveniently located since underground line A, ‘Ottaviano’ Stop is just at 300 mts. and in 5 minutes walking you can reach Vatican Museums.

The historical centre is also reachable by underground and the journey up to Piazza di Spagna takes about 8 minutes. San Pietro is at only 10 minutes walking.

Owner's Response: I'm really very sorry for your inconveniences during your rental, as you can understand our guests’ satisfaction is our main priority. About the points you wrote I think I have to specify some small details: The flat hasn't a private terrace and this is not on the flat description or in offered services, the building has only a common terrace but there isn't outdoor furniture. Anyway my City Manager, spent much time to explain everything and leave always her mobile phone for every needs. Construction works had to be finished months ago, unfortunately they was working till the end of April 2014, now there's no more dusty or smell. As you know Nicola was available during your rental for every needs. Anyway I understand your disappointment and I decided after speaking with Nicola to offer you a refund on your Total Rental. I want to remind you that for any friends or family coming to Rome, they can have a Special Discount as "Preferred Guests", feel free to give them this email address. Best Regards Francesca & Nicola

Posizione Ottima!appartamento comodo.

  • 3 of 5

L'appartamento e' situato in posizione strategica .A due passi dai musei vaticani e dalla metropolitana Ottaviano.A due passi dal mercato trionfale , comodissimo.L'appartamento e' spazioso ,comodo e pulito.Noi eravamo in 5 con tre bambini.Asciugamani e lenzuola puliti.Apprezzato anche il forno a microonde e la caffettiera elettrica!La cosa negativa e' il piano basso che impedisce di aprire le finestre / scuri e quindi l'appartamento risulta essere un po' umido e buio.Comunque ci siamo adattati. Inoltre e' provvisto anche di condizionatori che possono funzionare come deumidificatori.Consigliato per chi va a Roma per viverla !!!
