Located a stone’s throw from the banks of the Tiber and 500m from Saint Peter’s Basilica, thanks to its top-floor location on Piazza Adriana Le Stanze del Vaticano boasts breath-taking views of the ancient papal fortress of Castel Sant’Angelo, whose imposing fortifications are quite literally across the road from our front door.
Recently refurbished to very high standards, Le Stanze del Vaticano offers guests 3 triple-bedroom suites, all of which can be converted to 2-bed according to your needs. All our suites - named after Rome’s most famous Popes – benefit from brand new furnishings, en-suite bathrooms, TVs and free Wi-Fi, while our “Leone X” suite has the added bonus of a magnificent view.
Breakfast is provided by renowned local eatery Gran Caffè Cavour.
We hope that Le Stanze del Vaticano will be your springboard for exploring Rome, and with the Vatican less than 5 minutes’ walk away, Castel Sant’Angelo and the “Bridge of Angels” just across the street, and the bustling streets of the Centro Storico with their sights and shopping less than half a mile away (not to mention Piazza Navona, the Pantheon, Campo de’ Fiori, and Trastevere, all within a mile radius, with Piazza Venezia, the Coliseum and the Forum just a short bus ride away) there is no reason why it shouldn’t be.
We are a family-run, typically Roman establishment and we will be more than happy to advise you on sightseeing and the best places to eat out in our neighbourhood. Private guided tours to Rome’s main tourist attractions, with fully bilingual and registered guides, are also available on request.
(Please note that we also offer private, secure parking in our building upon request)
Le Stanze del Vaticano is located half a mile from the “Ottaviano – San Pietro” Metro station and is easily accessible from Termini Central Station by Bus, Metro or Taxi. Guests can also take a train to San Pietro Train Station directly from Fiumicino Airport by changing at Trastevere Station.
Super séjour de 3 jours à Rome avec comme base l'appartement proposé par Giulio-Cet appartement est effectivement très bien situé et sa maman nous a accueilli de façon très chaleureuse. Nous avons eu la chambre qui donne du côté du château Saint-Ange-.Les autres chambres étant occupées par d'autres personnes nous n'avions pas accès à la partie cuisine mais cela ne nous a pas dérangés. Je recommande vivement cette adresse airbnb pour séjourner à Rome.
Seul bémol, on a pas toujours eu de l'eau chaude au moment de la douche.
Excellent location and really big room. We were 2 adults and one 2 year old child. It worked perfectly. Also they give us coupons for the breakfast in a nice bar just around the corner. It is within walking distance to Vatican City and to bus stops to go to the Forum and many other attractions. Also there are many restaurants very close the the department. The room was clean and the heated worked excellent and fast. There is a lot of space to put the luggage and stuff. There is a private bathroom inside the room. We had a very small problem with the shower that had clogged the drain. We left a message to Giulio's mother because he was on a trip during our stay but we received no answer. We managed to find a workaround to the problem. His mother was very kind and helpful during the reception. Highly recommended.
Avec mon petit ami, nous avons séjourné pendant 3 jours chez Giulio. Nous avons été accueillie par sa mère qui a été très charmante et très chaleureuse et nous avons communiqué très facilement. C'était une première pour nous de passer par le site AIRBNB.
L'appartement est très bien situé (à 5 min à pieds du Vatican, à 1 min à pieds de l'arrêt de bus), très propre et nous avons eu la chance d'avoir la chambre avec une belle vue sur le Castel San Angelo et sur le parc.
De plus, le petit déjeuner était offert et c'est un petit geste en plus de la part de notre hôte qui nous a fait plaisir.
Si on devait retourné à Rome, nous retournerions chez Giulio sans hésitation et on n'hésiterai pas à le recommander.
Clean and spacious apartment in a great location. The host was very friendly and ready to help. It was vacation for my parents who do not speak neither Italian nor even English. But in spite of that they felt very comfortable and I was always sure there is someone in Rome who can take care of them.
Very impressed and highly recommend.
Très bon séjour dans cette belle et lumineuse chambre, bien propre. Serviettes fournies.
Nous n'avons pas vu Giulio mais avons été accueilli agréablement par sa mère. Il n'y a personne dans l'appartement, juste un couloir et 3 chambres, c'est surement pour cela qu'il faut arriver à l'heure pour le check in.
L'appartement est dans un très bel immeuble avec une vue dégagée sur le castello. Il se trouve près de la place St pierre et en traversant le pont on se retrouve facilement Piazza Navona, superbe!
Lors de mon prochain séjour à Rome je retournerais chez Giulio.
We stayed here in March 2014. Overall it was a great stay -- although our visit was short, we were still able to see almost everything on our list. The location was easy to get to/from by bus at the nearby Piazza Cavour. The view from our window was Castel Sant'Angelo which was extremely enjoyable. On the map, it appears closer to Vatican City than it really is -- which was our fault for not investigating further, but made us late for the tour. It really takes a good 30-35 minutes to get there by foot and you'd want to allow even more time if you're not familiar with where you're meeting your tour.
For all of the other hot spots (Piazza Navona, Fontana di Trevi, Colisseo, Spanish Steps, etc.) we were able to do in the same day walking. We just started at Piazza Navona which is about a 10-15 minute walk and carried on from there.
As for the room, it was a large size for two people and had plenty of space. The bathroom included a hairdryer and we had towels for every night of our stay. We did not meet Giulio during our stay, but Alessandra met us when we arrived and was in contact via email during our stay. She was very helpful.
Our only cons were that we were charged 10 Euro for arriving after 4 p.m. even though we notified in advance that our train wasn't going to get in until 6 p.m. We wouldn't have cared about this except we weren't told about the fee until 2 days before we arrived. Additionally, we were not supplied with enough toilet paper for our visit and the towels were a little dingy and old.
One more tip: just past Piazza Cavour there is a small grocery -- strongly recommend purchasing your souvies from there. The prices were about 1/5 of what they were at the actual souvie shops. We got great wine, pesto, pasta, etc. from there.
There were some communication problems with arriving, but we got there. The room is beautiful, big and the view is nice. Bring your earplus the street is a bit noisy. Giulio isn't at the apartment but you can call him, he was very helpfull. I really would recomment this place to stay during a trip in rome. Breakfast is Italian (sweet stuf) in a place near the appartment.
quando torneremo a Roma, soggiorneremo di nuovo qui. La posizione è ottima e la casa ospitale e tranquilla.
Giulio's place is about a 30 minute walk to the Vatican with nearby shops and restaurants. Breakfast is provided at a cafe around the corner. It is important to note that he requests a check-in after 4pm or advance arrangements for earlier check in as his work is not nearby the location. He was very eager to please and sought to address the few problems that arose.
The reservation was canceled 98 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
