About this listing

The space

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 Please note Check-in is normally from 14.00 until 20.00. Check-in is free of charge until 20.00. Between 20.00 and 24.00 there is an extra charge of €25

The apartment was in a great location, walking distance to St. Peter's and other attractions and a 5 min walk to the metro as well. Quiet, safe neighborhood, Sabina listed out various food places nearby - all in all, a fantastic place for two of us to explore Rome! Electricity tripped twice when we used the washer in winter but easily fixed by flipping the circuit breaker. Sabina even dropped by at night in winter to check that everything was alright. Would definitely come back to stay when revisiting Rome!

Sabina meet us in the flat and went through everything.She is a fantastic host recommending restaurants to walks. She organised a car to take us to the airport and back. We cannot recommend her highly enough. She made our stay so enjoyable. Thank you Sabina for all you did for us. The apartment is so close to the Vatican and yet off the tourist trail. All we can say the apartment, location and Sabina were stunning.

Our stay here was brilliant from the moment Sabina's brother met us at the apartment and made sure we had all we needed. The location was superb, only a ten minute walk to the Vatican Museum, a big plus at 6am! But just off the main tourist route, so dropping into the cafes and great eateries Sabina suggested gave us a touch of the local scene and cuisine. Shopping at the big market and cooking in the delightful kitchen another bonus. We appreciated being able to contact Sabina too, a super location and super host indeed!

Sabina's apartment was awesome! Fantastic location close to the Vatican but in the heart of "real Rome" where real Romans work and live. Sabina arranged a friend to pick us up from the airport (I highly reccomend) and her friend checked us into the apartment. He gave us the run down on the area and gave us some extra tips. The cleaning person was still there but he allowed us to unpack and stay while he was finishing up cleaning. The whole place was super clean and very well equipped. The hair dryer was a great extra touch and it worked really well. There was also extra toiletries in the bathroom that was also a nice touch. The kitchen was well equipped with coffee and stove top italian espresso makers. The bathroom itself is a bit of a tight squeeze being pretty narrow but we had no complaints. The coffee bar across the street was great and the owners were super nice. We went almost every day for a cappacino and a cornetto. The Osteria across the street was delicious and a great experience. All the restaurants near the apartment were fantastic and extremely friendly. We spent 12 nights in Sabina's place and it was amazing! Can't wait to go back! Perfect for a couple for their time in Rome!!

We were greeted upon arrival and shown through the apartment and then spent some time with our host pouring over city maps and attractions.

Our roma home away from home was lovely for the short two nights we spent there. the apartment was clean and comfortable exactly as described. Sabina was very accommodating to our changed check in time. The gentleman who showed us around the apartment was also very friendly and helpful. the maps and suggestions to local surrounding was great! super close to the Vatican and away from the super busy tourist area but close enough to walk home or hop on the metro.

This was a great location. Sabina was very hospitable. We had our arrival time wrong but she was very accommodating. She arranged a car to pick us up from the airport that we paid for of course but she arranged it which was less hassle for us. A little coffee shop across the street. This place was perfect.

Sabina User ProfileSabina is a superhost.

I am an architect and I have worked in Italy and in the past in the UK and I like to travel and I have visited many countries. I am interested in culture, Arts and particularly music. I have over time renovated 3 family flats, one in the historical city centre, and two close to the Vatican one of each with a beautiful terrace to accommodate the needs of the demanding traveler who is looking for comfort and at the same time to share the experience of a local and to live like a real Roman for a few days at a reasonable cost and in an elegant setting. I have tried to include in the apartments all the amenities I would like to have when I travel. I put particular effort in recreating the Italian lifestyle experience, a comfortable bed, a good quality espresso when you weak up, some quality guides for you to use, a speedy Wi-Fi, a check in service which goes beyond giving the keys and tries to understand your needs and share with you some tips and knowledge of the area. In addition I provide each flat with an Italian mobile phone that you can use call museums and restaurants and of course to communicate with me at not cost to you. You will find welcome drinks in the fridge, whenever possible a bottle of wine complementary soaps, shampoos and tooth paste in case you have forgotten them. In other words I have tried to make your holiday hassle free. also the ability to be picked up at the airport by an elegant and comfortable car at a lower or similar cost to public transport. It is made to make you start the holiday on the right foot, particular in those cases where you have problem of delays , lost or heavy luggage. I realize that each guest is different, coming from a different country , some already knows Rome and are looking therefore for special sites, others are looking more at the food side, others to the shopping opportunities, and so I am available, upon request to share information with you even before you have arrived in Rome. In some cases I helped guests plan their follow on trips, after Rome, for example to Pompei or Florence. Of course I am not a travel agent but I always try to be friendly and helpful.
