“Beautiful Apartment a bit off the beaten path”
Reviewed 3 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This is a charming, cozy 4th floor apartment in a quiet residential section behind the Vatican, down the hill and maybe eight to ten blocks from the stairs that lead to the Vatican museum. Two good sized bedrooms, one with twin beds. The kitchen is small but well stocked and nicely set up. The living room/dinette is cute too with a small balcony that overlooks the courtyard. There is a tiny elevator that barely fits three people. The bathroom is big; the shower a converted bathtub. There's a small washing machine. Everything you need is there: plates, paper towels, cleaning products, toilet articles. It's a nice cool quiet place with the typical Italian windows that open in and have outside shutters (sportolloni) that pull down to keep the place cool, but have holes in them for air.
Angela was an angel. Our flight into Rome was really early, but she let us leave our luggage early (the elevator is tiny) and arranged to let us in the apartment earlier than checkin. We were a bit jet lagged and the extra time inside really helped. Bless her.
The neighborhood sports one of the best pizzerias in Rome - Bonci. Fresh veggies and aged dough and olive oil. Crowded but amazing.
To get anywhere downtown you have to walk to the local metro stop (Cipro) or take a cab at the taxi stand right by the Cipro subway. IMPORTANT: it's almost impossible to flag a cab down. You almost always have to find a taxi stand which are near or at all the major sites of interest. The buses are good too. Find out on line first where you want to go and which bus to take. Most tobacco stores sell bus tickets.
There are coffee shops and restaurants around the neighborhood that are all good. Yhe neighborhood is not a hot spot, it is off the beaten path. But that might be just the thing for you. My son and nephew loved the apartment.

“Perfect location”
Reviewed 12 August 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Superb apartment. Very spacious and comfortable. Everything you need to make your holiday pleasurable. Owner was very friendly and helpful. Location very close to the vatican and the metro stop. If you want to feel the real Roman way of life this is the perfect place to stay. Will definitely book again if ever we are in Rome again.

“Good location and communication”
Reviewed 8 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

The reservation process and subsequent communication to organise hand over of the keys went very smoothly. The owner reacts quickly and to the point. During our stay and around leaving time there is also F/U to make sure everything goes well.

For the apartment itself the good points are the size and the location. It is perfect for two couples or a couple with children. The location is convenient because close to a metro station, supermarket and a couple of recommendable restaurants and it is relatively quiet at night.

The main downsides however were the fact that the apartment is fairly rundown and there is no air conditioning. The state of the furniture is quite poor with chairs on the verge to collapse and the kitchen and bathroom are not really comfortable to use. The lack of airco was particularly worrisome considering the 40 degree temperatures during our stay. Finally it wasn't as bad as it could have been through careful control of windows, shutters and the two fans.

All in all it didn't detract from a good couple of days in Rome.

“Great apartment. Excellent location. Wonderful host.”
Reviewed 11 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed at Angela's apartment for the second time since a year. The apartment is even better this year with many improvements and with the addition of a sofa bed in the living room. We were a really big group and were so comfortable. It was a pleasure to come home after a long day of walking around Rome. The apartment is close to everything, bus stop, train station (Cipro), a farmer's market (Trionfale) which is a few minutes walk away with secure, undeground parking. The internet was very fast and reliable. The partment is also an 8 minute walk from the Vatican Museum. Angela also provided airport pickup and dropoff. She saved our life with that!! I am sure we will be back again next year. We have found a home away from home :)

“The apartment was full of character and a great location for an early start to get ahead of the queues at the Vatican.”
Reviewed 23 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Great to be so close to the Vatican as the queues at St Peters and the museum get VERY long. This means it's quite a walk to other "sights" but part of the Rome experience is wandering through the streets and coming across interesting places. We walked everywhere rather than using the metro, stopping at restaurants we liked the look of along the way.
Many thanks to Angela who always replied promptly and happily to my messages; re-organising taxis when our flights were re-routed and allowing us to leave our luggage in the flat on our last day as our return flight was later than the agreed "check out" time.
The apartment was lovely, clean and full of character- a tiny kitchen but it had everything needed for cooking simple meals.

“An excellent apartment and a wonderful host!”
Reviewed 20 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Angela our host was very prompt in all her responses. Even when we were in Rome knowing that we had her support for things like airport transfers made our stay stress free. The location of the apartment is 5 mins walk from St Peters, and so the hop on hop on sight seeing buses. Very convenient to the Metro station and a good well priced ice cream shop! The apartment was well equipped and the added bonus of a washing machine was a huge bonus when travelling with children. We would whole heartedly recommend this apartment.
