For this price, you won't find a better hotel or apartment in Rome! Book now! I've stayed in many hotels and B&Bs in Rome, and I am often left feeling disappointed by the quality, cleanliness, or treatment by staff. My experience in this apartment was completely different, standing out for several reasons.
First of all, the owner of the apartment is extremely friendly and accommodating, making guests feel comfortable from the moment they arrive. This is a huge departure from the infamous Roman inhospitality.
Secondly, the apartment's location is PERFECT for anyone planning on visiting the Vatican and the historic center of Rome! From the window in the main room you can literally see over the walls of Vatican City, sometimes catching a glimpse of the action inside. Within 5 minutes walk is the metro stop "Ottaviano", several bars and restaurants, and the important shopping street "Via Cola di Rienzo". With the metro you can reach the main train station "Termini" in approximately 15 minutes, or arrive to Piazza del Popolo, Piazza di Spagna, the Trevi Fountain, etc. in less than 10 minutes.
Last but not least, the apartment itself is spacious and beautifully decorated. Unlike many other touristic apartments in the city, the apartment has true Italian character. In addition to a large main bedroom and sitting room, there is a small studio with a sofa, two large (and modern!) bathrooms, a large eat-in kitchen, and another sitting room. This is no average holiday rental- this feels like a true home! I spent 4 days here, but I could easily imagine myself staying there for a longer period and living like a true Roman.
For those who prefer the services of a hotel, such as a front-desk or doorman, please note that this building has a "portiere" who is always available to help and answer questions. Of course, the owners are also accessible for anything you may need!
I would recommend this to anyone, but I think the apartment is especially well suited for larger groups and families. I for one am already planning on staying here on my next trip to Rome!
We spent three days in Rome in this marvellous apartment: Catherine's Home has got all the positive qualities and characteristics that each tourist Is looking for: a very clean and bright apartment with large spaces; the two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and the kitchen, are furnished with a very good taste, giving a romantic touch to the apartment. And if you look at the window in the evening you can enjoy a very enchanting view!
The Vatican museums are very close to the building, as well as the metro station. In a few meters you have bars, pharmacy and different shops.
Many thanks to Mrs. Patrizia who has been so nice with us, we are looking forward to go back to Rome and to Catherine's Home!
In the heart of the Christian Rome the structure is located a stone's throw from San Pietro, with air conditioning and two bathrooms ideal for small groups of tourists. Stupid eating there are no problems in the neighborhood there are many typical restaurants and venues. Home lovers are very nice and helpful
Don't think twice: just rent this fantastic place!
Luxury, home style experience with incredible hosts. In the apartment you have everything needed, even more.... Great value for money.
Nice walking distance to all major places.
I wish that each and every place would be like that.
