The apartment is located 5 minutes walking distance from the main entrance of the Vatican Museums in a residential and quiet area of Rome called Prati.
It is very well positioned and connected to the historical centre by public transport.
Buses 913 and 70 , and the underground, line A (Ottaviano station ) just 5 minutes walking from the flat will take you easily and quickly to the most beautiful historical sites of Rome, such as Spanish steps, Piazza del Popolo, "Piazza Navona" or you can choose to go just for a leisurely walk to the Vatican City.
The area is not very touristic but very Roman and lively , with nice restaurants pizzerias and bars with prices that are more reasonable than the city centre.
It is close to a very convenient shopping area called Via Cola di Rienzo, which ends on the Tiber River, crossing the bridge you find yourself in the heart of the centre of Rome, Piazza del Popolo .
The flat is also very close to a famous good quality and inexpensive Roman rional food market Trionfale where you can find a wide selection of fruits and vegetables but also a good quality fish stall and cheeses, you will find all products and delicatessens: zucchini flowers, figs, tomatoes, ham, porcini it is open every day from 7.00 am to 2.00 pm. (closed on Sunday )
The flat is spacious and has been recently repainted and decorated with light colours, it is located on the second floor with lift, of an elegant period building of the 30s. The rooms have very high ceilings, large windows and features antique marble floors a la "veneziana".
It has a spacious and completely equipped kitchen, with travertine top, gas hobs and oven , fridge, washing machine, and a table seating 4 people. NEW : Nespresso coffe machine for a delicious Italian espresso at home ! A bathroom with shower, and hair-dryer and , a bedroom with a comfortable double bed and a spacious cupboard. The flat also offers unlimited wi-fi , a flat screen TV, independent heating/air conditioning.
It is perfect for 2 people, but it can also accommodate a third person/child thanks to a comfortable harm chair that becomes a single bed quite large.(100x190 cm) Bed linen and towels are also provided.
Given flight restrictions, I always try to leave in the flat toothpaste, shower gel/shampoo etc and also when I can fresh drinks and fruits.
In my opinion , the flat is suitable for the flexible traveler who is looking for a reasonably priced accommodation and interested to live in a lively roman residential area, well connected with public transport and close to the Vatican.
If you are interested in knowing the origin of the name Prati, this is because at the beginning of XX century, this area was covered by the meadows of Castel Sant'Angelo, fortified residence of the Popes.

We had a fantastic stay in this apartment. Sabina unfortunately could not meet us, but her friend was very kind in showing us all we needed to know and Sabina made sure we were all settled in. The apartment itself was exactly as pictured - it was nice and light, great facilities and the bed was very comfortable! Sabina gave us some great recommendations for food etc which was very kind. The apartment is in a great location - not in a tourist packed area but close enough for a pleasant walk to the main attractions. I would definitely stay here again and recommend this apartment to friends and family. Thank you for a wonderful stay Sabina!
We were delighted to find that Sabina was able to meet us at the apartment having organised the taxi from the airport for us. Sabina was absolutely charming and gave us a thorough explanation not only of the equipment and facilities in her home but also the amenities in the local area; she made sure we were happy with everything before leaving. The apartment was exactly as we expected and proved a wonderful base for our stay. An added bonus was that Sabina had ensured that we had all the necessary provisions to start our holiday; especially welcome were the toiletries in the bathroom.
Lovely, quite and safe location, very close to Vatican City which is literally 5-10min walking distance away, 5-8 euro via uber. Even though I didn't see Sabina due to her personal reasons she was super helpful: arranged the pick up and drop off taxi, her friend met us and explained everything about the apartment and the surrounding area. The money definitely worth the value; apartment has got everything what was listed on the facility list. I highly recommend to stop by and have a very comfortable stay.
We had a perfect city break in Rome. That was, no doubt, helped greatly by Sabina's Hospitality.
A taxi was organised for us from the airport at a reasonable and fixed price. We were greeted by Marco who knew the area well and was able to orientate us and direct us to the best local places for dining and food shopping. The neighbourhood is great for both! The best thing, though, is how close you are to the city centre without being trapped in touristville the whole time.
The apartment is very well kept is just as it is in the photos and the stock of supplies such as tea, coffee and bottled water made our late arrival just that bit more relaxing. There are lots of guidebooks and info that have been provided by Sabina.
I would recommend this lovely apartment to anyone.
For my wife it was the first time in Rome. And for us both the first time airbnb. We’re going by train from the airport to termini station and than via metro. It was uncomplicated. We had a warm welcome from sabina. The flat was nice and cosy. As special service Sabina showed us everything near the location. Some nice restaurants, cafés, gelateria and bars. So it was a easy start for our vacation and a start for three wonderful days in rome. We would come back every time.
Nous avons passé un très bon séjour à Rome et nous nous sommes très bien sentis chez Sabina. L'appartement est très bien situé, près du métro et de nombreux commerces. L'appartement est conforme aux descriptions données, très agréable, spacieux, très propre et la décoration est très sympa. De nombreuses attentions nous attendaient dans l'appartement.
Nous avons été très bien accueillis à notre arrivée, avec toutes les explications et conseils nécessaires.
Nous avons eu l'occasion d'échanger régulièrement avec Sabina qui a toujours été très réactive dans ses réponses.
Sabina a tout fait pour que nous passions un séjour agréable.
Es la segunda vez que vamos al departamento de Sabina y nos sentimos como en casa. La ubicación es excelente, ella se preocupa para que no falte nada y está atenta a cualquier duda o necesidad.
El departamento está muy bien decorado, tiene todo lo necesario para la estadía y es muy acogedor.
Está ubicado en un barrio tranquilo, pero con todo lo que necesitan a su alrededor. Restaurantes cerca, supermercados, cafés, el subte a dos cuadras... En fin, es una zona que equilibra la tranquilidad con las facilidades necesarias para vivir bien.

Ciao ! I am an architect and I work between Italy and UK and I have travelled extensively. I am interested in culture, visual arts and particularly music.
I use this little "nests" to escape from work and stressful life when I come to Rome since I enjoy the beautiful ancient sites of Rome , but I am happy to share it with friends and those who will appreciate the special qualities of the place and the beauty of Rome.
I refurbished this apartment putting a lot of love and care. I love singing , and funny enough from this apartment sometimes you can appreciate beautiful music of opera singers and pianists coming from the Accademy of Music which is very near !
