The apartment was clean and beautiful the stairs to the bedrooms were heart wrenching to say the least. Anyone with a little bit of weight on them would probably rip them off the wall and fall. But it was were close to the Vatican within 5 minutes of walking and the hosts were awesome and answered right away if you called with an issue
Robi&Pati’s flat is amazing - the space is so stylish and well designed, and the location is perfect if you want to be in a great neighborhood away from the manic tourist center. From the flat you can wander to hip bars, restaurants, and shops, and you’re still only 2 mins walking from the Metro Otaviano and an easy metro trip to rest of the city. I’d recommend this spot to anyone heading to Rome!
Recently returned from Italy where l spent three nights in Patti e Robbi’s rental unit in Rome. I was a little reluctant to rent on line but after arriving at the apartment l realized I made the right decision. The apartment is immaculate, well designed and has everything to make visitors comfortable. It is spacious with a large modern bathroom and a comfortable living room. It is in a quiet neighborhood near the Vatican, restaurants, shops and cafes. I would definitely recommend this apartment.
Stayed here in April with my husband for 5 nights. The apartment is a 10 minute walk from the Vatican and in a quieter part of the city. It is very cleverly designed, making good use of the space available with the bedroom on a mezzanine floor and the stylish bathroom in the basement. We found it an inviting place to return to after a day’s walking around Rome. Apart from breakfast, we ate out but did find the large indoor market a few blocks away which we thought we would enjoy using on a return visit. The hosts are a very kind and friendly couple. They greeted us on arrival and invited us to join them for a morning coffee before we left. We used the shuttle bus between Ciampino and the railway terminal (€10 return) and the metro from there to the Ottaviano metro stop, a short walk from the apartment. The hosts’ friend also offers an airport transfer for €35.
My husband and I enjoyed the most amazing time in Rome! Patti & Robi were amazing in accommodating our every need. The flat was very close to the Metro so arriving with luggage was easy, a short walk from the Vatican and Ancient Rome and just out of the way of the busy touristy streets! Many lovely shops and restaurants nearby and a safe neighbourhood to walk - even at night. The flat is GORGEOUS - tastefully decorated & very modern. Robi met us upon arrival to greet us and answer our many questions. We are so grateful for this stay and will highly recommend to friends!
Thank you Patti e Robi!!
Patti was a great host. She was standing on the corner to meet and greet us when we got out of the shuttle. I appreciated the communications she sent prior to our arrival with very clear and concise directions on how to find it.
The property was immaculate, and had everything that we needed for our stay. The arrangement is such that you have three locked doors to access the apartment which gave us comfort from a safety and security standpoint.
The neighborhood was conveniently located less than two blocks from the underground station and well less than a mile from Vatican City. We discovered many markets, restaurants and bars all of which were great and a laundromat is conveniently located just up the street about two or three blocks.
Need a Place to stay during your visit to Rome? You can stop your search and book this lovely spot hidden in an appartement building in a quite street just a couple of blocks away from the Vatican Museum and Saint Pieter. Patti and Robi have a really nicely decorated appartment with a small kitchen in which you find anything you need, a lovely livingroom, big bathroom and good bed. Patti gives you a warm welcome and is always available for tips and questions. The location is perfect, just a bit away from the touristcrowd but close to the metro which gives you easy acces to the old city center. Fancy a walk? The old city center is just a 20 minute walk.
We loved it! Janine and Jolanda
