About the property

This awesome apartment was just finely renovated and decorated by a well known interior designer. It comes with all the modern amenities: two sat TVs, DVD, stereo with iPod doc, wide chromotherapy shower, aromatherapy machine, air conditioning in both rooms, microwave and regular oven, dishwasher, washing machine, dryer, kettle, toaster, coffe machine, iron and ironing board.

The apartment is located at the second floor (1st European) with elevator and it faces a quiet street. It is approximately 90 sq. mts. large, spacious enough to comfortably host four persons. There is a king size bed and a very comfortable king size sofa bed. The apartment is very quiet and bright and it is located a few steps away from the Vatican Museums and St. Peter's Cathedral. The nearby subway would take you fastly and easily to the train station and to the airport, while a number of bus lines would let you reach all the other sights in 10 to 15 minutes. This safe neighborhood is ideal for its shopping streets and its wide choice of restaurants, groceries and coffee shops.


The apartment is not available for parties and events of any kind.

Renters below 25 years of age are not admitted unless accompanied by parents or elder relatives.

Perfect host, perfect apartment, perfect location!!

  • 5 of 5

Paolo is the perfect host! He made arrangements for airport pick up and return and met us at the apartment when we arrived. He was available when ever we needed him. He explained how everything worked in the apartment, told us where restaurants, stores and pharmacies were. ALL within a 3 minute walk, including the subway(Metro) The apartment is only a 5 minute walk to the Vatican City/St. Peter's. The Pope comes to a window on Sundays at noon and blesses the people and the square. A once in a lifetime experience to see and be blessed by the Pope!! The metro will bring you to EVERY attraction in Rome and so easy to use!! The apartment was spacious and very comfortable! The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need to cook a small or large meal!! The bed is comfortable and we NEVER ran out of hot water in the shower. The TV has hundreds of channels, plus a DVD player but we were too busy to watch any TV. I don't think you can find a better host or a better located and comfortable apartment in Rome!! Hope to return to this fun city in the future and will definitely stay at this apartment!! I just can't say enough positive things about this apartment, host and location!!

Within blocks of the Vatican City and a wonderful safe neighborhood.

  • 4 of 5

Paolo's apartment is charming and we enjoyed our stay there. We were late arriving at the apartment but were able to call Paolo and he waited for us to get there and was very gracious about it. Great restaurants in the area and an active neighborhood. We would be out late at night walking to and from restaurants and it was no problem. Our only negative comment would be the bed. It was listed as a king bed and it is not and also feel that the mattress needs to be replaced as it did sag. The bed issue is the only reason I didn't give it a 5 star rating. This rental was in the middle of our vacation and a break from staying in hotels. Really enjoyed having that space and able to relax and get the feel of the neigborhood. The restaurant almost across the street is wonderful but suggest reservations. It is a short and easy walk to the Vatican. The meto is not far away and easy to travel to other sites in Rome. Thank you Paolo

Wonderful Stay in this great Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful stay in this amazing apartment. The apartment is just as pictured and so well equipped.

The kitchen is perfect for cooking large or small meals. The bathroom is really nice and the shower a perfect place to soak your sore feet after a day of wandering. The bedroom very pretty and the bed and linens very comfortable. It was very warm during our visit, the air conditioning worked perfectly.

Although many come to Rome to see all of the sights, our stay was about relaxing without a plan. We spent a bit of time in the apartment and found it to be very comfortable with lots of room and everything we could need. The apartment is perfectly located to see the sights of Rome, steps from the Vatican and 1 block from the Metro. The neighborhood is busy, but quiet. There is a nice grocery store a couple of blocks away, we ate at several wonderful nearby restaurants and enjoyed just walking the neighborhood at all hours of the day and night.

Paolo is absolutely wonderful to work with, he answered all emails promptly and politely. I would not hesitate to stay in the apartment again, and hope that the opportunity will present itself.

Thanks again Paolo for everything!!!!

4.9 out of 5 stars from a picky American

  • 5 of 5

First, Paolo was the consummate professional and patient host! Our flight to Roma from Atlanta was 3 hours delayed and he waited at the apartment until we thusly arrived. He was very friendly and his English is outstanding!

His apartment was as described. The street was very quiet (Via Germanica), but adjacent to a very lively street (Via Ottaviano). Therefore, the corner pizzaria provided outstanding authentic Italian fare (we ate there a few times - breafast, dinner) and a fabulous opportunity to sit outside and people-watch. We were 3 blocks from St. Peter's in one direction and about the same in another direction from the Vatican Museums. There was a small grocer on the same street as the apartment and apparently a super market within 3 blocks.

We relied exclusively on the Metro for transportation around Roma, although Paolo recommended certain buses to get to the city center. It was very hot in early July, but other than standing in a few short lines (we bought reservations to the attractions we wanted ahead of time to avoid lines), we had a wonderful time! (To be fair, it was the first 4 days of our honeymoon, so what's not to love!?)

In dealing with Paolo, he was always prompt via email. He was equally prompt via text messaging once we arrived in Roma. He refunded our complete deposit via PayPal within 24 hours of our departure, as promised. (If I had been a little braver, I would have paid the entire rent via PayPal to begin with, to save a few dollars in credit card fees. I would do so on a return trip without thinking twice -- he earned my trust!).

The appliances all worked well, although the electrical system in most apartments in Rome do not allow one to use multiple large appliances at the same time. Paolo was generous with his time and showing us exactly how all of the appliances correctly operated - so no issues there.

My only nit (complaint) was that the bed was a bit harder than we were accustomed. My recommendation to our kind host would be to purchase a 3-inch foam bed topper and have it available for the soft Americans that are used to softer beds. The bed left my back sore. That's it, though! My ONLY complaint!

Overall, I'll be glad to use any of Paolo's properties in the future and recommend him unconditionally! Grazie and bravo, Paolo!
