Rome Vatican Vacation Apartments
Ranked #324 of 1,134 Speciality Lodging in Rome
Reviewed 3 April 2014

Heike Hoerdemann owns and manages these apartments. We stayed in the PIUS for 3 nights. The apartment was beautifully decorated and very well supplied. There was a welcoming bottle of prosecco and lots of helpful guidance in the apartment to guide our holiday. The apartments are a short walk to the Vatican and have good restaurants very close by. The booking was easy and we had a very welcome taxi from the airport which was efficient and I would strongly advise adding this extra at very little cost because it means a quick start to your holiday! We had a wonderful stay and will certainly return. I have recommended these apartments to many of my friends.

Room Tip: We stayed in the PIUS apartment which had one double bed and two single beds in the other

We stayed in a 3-bedroom apartment for 2 nights. We were a group of 6, and this apartment offered more than plenty of space and was very well equipped. All rooms were nicely decorated. What we liked most was the location of the apartment and the experience to stay in one of these beautiful buildings. Though it was situated in a very quiet and peaceful neighborhood, we were only minutes away from the metro station and the Vatican. From the metro, you can easily reach anywhere you want in Rome. There were a couple of times we actually decided to take a stroll and walked across the river to reach the other side where lots of Rome attractions can be found.

The staff of Vatican Vacation also offered very friendly services. Information about what/where to visit or where to pick up groceries was provided upon check-in. Since we were flying out late evening on the day we checked out, we were allowed to leave the aparment at a later time such that we didn't have to carry our backpacks while traveling around the city. In most other hotels/apartments we would have been asked to leave at around noon. But this apartment offered lots of flexibility. That's something we really appreciated. What we appreciated even more was that the owner of the apartment was very willing to help and arrange the shipment of an item we left in the apartment. She has made it very easy and worry-free for us along the entire process.

I would recommend this to anyone wanting to visit Rome/Vatican. It's very good value-for-money and also gives you a chance to live in a very cozy neighborhood in Rome!

We enjoyed the three bedrom appartment for our visit to the Vatican. Two bathrooms and two extra beds for the livingroom gave room for 8 people. The appartment is a 10 min walk from the St. Peters Square. We enjoyed our stay and would like to come back.

I booked the Mosaico apartment for 5 friends and I. The lady who greeted us (Heike) was very friendly and was very helpful. As I forgot to look for directions to the apartment, she was nice enough to text me the directions.

The apartment was very spacious. Although one of the pillows that they provided was too lumpy to sleep on, we made do with the pillows that were on the sofa. We loved the kitchen as it was very fully equipped. There was even a washing machine and a dishwasher. The toilet was also very spacious with each getting their bath and face towel. There was even a medical kit in the cupboard in the toilet. It loses a point because the internet that we got was really bad. Only a couple of us could connect at once and sometimes none of us can. It is very frustrating when you're surfing the web and the next thing you know, you've lost internet connection.

All rooms are also equipped with an air-con so if you're going during summer, the air-cons would be very useful. The location was another plus point. It wasn't too far from the Metro station, probably a 10 minute walk. There are quite a number of places to eat round there. Our favourite was a very nice bakery in a basement shop near the Metro that has really good pastry for a really cheap price.

I would definitely go back there if I ever go back to Rome.

Had a lovely vacation in rome and stayed in this place with my parents, a cousin with his parents. It's just a shame that we didn't stay for a longer period of time but overall excellent. The service provided by the owner was top notch! The accomodation is very much the same as you see in the pictures. The location is ideal and everything is within walking distance. To a certain extent the accomodation makes you feel like you're at home and not alien.

My husband and I + 6 friends have stayed in Vatican Vacation Apartments twice and have booked San Marco and Callisto for 5 nights in october 2012.
The apartments are spacious, welll equipped with good beds, and situated in a quiet domestic area just half a mile north off the Vatican Museum and a Metro station.
The location is excellent for exploring Rome.
The neighborhood features a market, two grocery stores, a bakery and several bars and restaurants.
The owner are very kind and helpfull, and service extended from owner and staff is more than adequate.
We have enjoyed our stay at Vatican Vacation and highly recommend the apartments.
