The Space

***The property has just been repainted and a de-humidifier has been installed :) ***

Great apartment located on the ground floor on Via Delle Fornaci, a few steps away from San Pietro railway station and close to St. Peter's Basilica and the Vatican Museums. It is comprised of one double bedroom with an en suite bathroom, a fully equipped kitchen and living area. It also has a large private garden patio, ideal to eat in the open air to relax in the sun.

The apartment is furnished in a modern way and is equipped with a LCD television, air conditioning, wi-fi and a couch that folds out to a double bed. Its central position and the excellent connections provided by an efficient public transport network make it an ideal solution for a wonderful vacation in the Eternal city.

You are also available to park on the street which will help out many of you that are driving through italy.

The property is between the Vatican and Trastevere, amongst one of Rome’s most affluent and sought after areas. Here you will be surrounded by a plethora of restaurants, bars and a large supermarket. It is also next door to a gym for those of you that need your daily kick start.

You can also walk from here to Piazza Navona in 10 minutes. Everything is just a stroll away, including the Vatican museum, St peters basilica (you could be at mass in 5 minutes), Campo dei fiori and Pantheon also in walking distance.

Bus services are available in the immediate area and St Peters train station is also a short walk away. Being connected wont be a problem.

You can even get to Santa Severa Beach from here by way of train (40 min).

  • When we first arrived we were shocked to see the dingy location of the apartment, set way back from the street behind everything in a very unsafe feeling area. When we finally got inside after waiting for a while due to issues with the front door key, we were greeted by a very musty smell and realised that the pictures online were very deceiving. The area was small. We later turned on the shower, which caused the toilet to flood with sewerage water, which filled up the bathroom and into the bedroom very quickly. By now it was midnight and we didn't know what to do. The smell continued to get worse by the minute so we had no choice but to call the host. We then thought it couldn't get worse, but Then we found a scorpion in our bedroom. After trying to explain what was happening, the host was very stubborn and told us to stay there the night, but this was not possible. He then agreed to move us to a 'better' Apartment. He then told us to walk to the apartment; which we were not prepared to do as we had a lot of luggage and did not know the city. By now my boyfriend was getting very frustrated and annoyed. After this, he then told us to catch a taxi at a taxi rank that did not exist, at this time there were no cars around. After deliberation, he agreed to call us a taxi, which he said he would pay for but never payed the full amount, By now it was clear that this was the worst airbnb host/agent we have been with, if we knew this was an agency we would have not booked. Leaving the apartment they moved us into which, we must admit was a million times better than the original apartment, we thought was the end, but he then wrote a terrible review about us, making false accusations and admitting to meeting us; when we never met him. We met his brother. He was also very immature about the situation. We strongly recommend not staying with these people. I cannot fairly rate it as we did not stay in this apartment.

    Response from Alessandro:

    Nice spin on things Emma, unfortunately for you other people can read the other happy reviews guests have left us. This kind of response is expected after i exposed you as the worst tenant we have ever had. As for the apartment being different from the photos, you saw it at 10:30pm when it was dark, as for unsafe....this is just ignorance as its a property located 100m from St Peters Basilica (probably one of the most policed areas I know of) and the musty smell was from the recent change of weather from 15 degrees to 30 degrees C over the space of a few days. The new property obviously was a "million times better" because its a more expensive property per night.

  • Great apartment! Well located, spacious and modern. Very convenient to the Vatican and the center of Rome by bus. Aside from mustiness (expected from a garden apartment), the place could not have been better!
