Charming apartment two steps away from the majestic Basilica of St. Peter's and from the shopping streets of the Capital.
The studio-apartment has a private entrance overlooking a typical courtyard dominated by an ancient olive tree in a an elegant "Umbertino" style building, typical of this area.
In the studio you will find a large double-size bed (in case of need there is also an extra place using existing sofa-bed). It features air-con, TV/sat, private heating, fully equipped kitchen, free wi-fi and it is just 100 meters away from the underground "Ottaviano-San Pietro".
White and crystal predominate creating a modern, bright and clean atmosphere in compliance with the nineteenth-century structure of the building.
It is extremely quiet and noiseless, equipped with every comfort, ideal for couples or businessmen who looks for an exclusive accommodation in the heart of town.
WHERE WE ARE
Prati is in one of the districts ("Rioni") of Rome Historical Centre and incorporates the Vatican City. Its logo is the shape of Hadrian's Mausoleum (known today as St Angel Castle).
During Roman times the territory of present Prati district consisted of vineyards and reed beds, part of the property of Domitia, wife of Emperor Domitian, from which the area was named Horti Domitii ("Domitian's Gardens") and later Neronis Prata ("Nero's Meadows").
In the Middle Ages the area was called Prata Sancti Petri ("St.Peter's Meadows") due to the adjacent Basilica.
Until 1870, there stretched a vast expanse of natural meadows, fields and even swamps, dotted -especially in the area of the slopes of Monte Mario- of some farmhouse and the rest completely deserted; the area was known as Prati di Castello (referring to St.Angel Castle).
After 1870 (the year of the annexation of Rome to the newly born Kingdom of Italy) were the first interventions of housing and urbanization, completed in the first half of the twentieth century.
Prati district today is characterized by wide and regular streets, with elegant buildings in "Umbertino" style and villas in liberty style. You will find an excellent selection of restaurants, wine-bars, typical shops.

Thank you and have a nice stay
Die Wohnung ist sehr schön gelegen - man kann vieles und insb. den Vatikan von dort aus bestens erreichen. Rundherum sind viele nette Restaurants - besonders zu empfehlen ist das Restaurant, welches in unmittelbarer Nähe zum Wohnungseingang liegt - wunderbar!
Die Wohnung selber ist sehr hübsch und modern - die Fotos Lügen nicht. Uns hat es dort allerbesten gefallen! Wir kommen sehr gerne wieder!
David made things very easy for us with respect to check in and was very quick in responding to our questions. The apartment is in very close to the vatican city and also the metro station, from which the whole of rome is accessible. The place was neat and clean. I would certainly recommend this place for a stay in Rome!
Très joli petit appartement propre et situé non loin du Vatican dans une résidence avec concierge et coure intérieure. Hôte discret mais très prévenant (les serviettes et les draps ont été changé en notre absence, les poubelles vidées, ...). Grazie mille, David.
A modern and secure apartment close to Ottaviano Metro, allowing access to all the main attractions. Great cafe on the corner for a quick espresso and brioche. On arrivcal I received a list of local shops and laundry facilities close by. David replied promptly to any queries about the booking or the apartment. The room is off a small, pretty courtyard and away from traffic noise. Noise from the kitchen in the restaurant next door could be heard at night
Wir wurden in der Wohnung von der Mutter und einer Freundin des Gastgebers empfangen. Die Wohnung war niedlich und sauber. Alles was man braucht war vorhanden. Alles hat funktioniert. Die Nachbarschaft war nett und das Restaurant nebenan sehr sehr lecker und auch preiswert! Sehr zu empfehlen. Die Metro gleich um die Ecke und vom Flughafen sehr gut zu erreichen. Erst halbe Stunde mit der Bahn dann um steigen in die Metro - auch nochmal 20 Min ca. - dann 5 Min laufen. Super!
My boyfriend and I had a wonderful time during our stay at this studio apartment. After a quick metro ride from Termini, David's mother, Lidia, met us at the (easy to find) entrance. She showed us how to get in and gave us a delicious restaurant recommendation along with a list of places we may need to visit during our stay: convenience, pharmacy, department etc. The apartment itself was really nice & clean (daily cleaning service!) and the memory foam bed was super comfy. Being so close to the Vatican and the metro, it was really easy to get around! As a lucky bonus, David kindly let us leave our luggage after check-out!
-Because the shower and toilet don't have a lot of privacy, this space is probably best for well-established couples or if you are on your own.
-There is a little staircase to access the apartment and then once inside, there are some steps that go down to the toilet in the bathroom.
Me and my partner had an AWESOME stay at David's place!
The apartment was beautiful, cosy, warm, and everything you could wish for whilst away!
Great location in Rome, and the metro is literally round the corner!
We 100% lived our stay and would totally stay there again!

Hello, I am David I lived all my life in Rome and I do love my city. I like travelling, meeting people and good food. I am always available for my guests by phone or email 24/24 in case of need, questions and suggestions.
I do think your choice of visiting The Eternal City is the best you can do: Rome is not only a beautiful city, it is an experience…
... walking through the streets of history, where around every corner you come upon an architectural wonder... every time I enter Via della Conciliazione and all of a sudden I have Saint Peter's Dome in front of me I feel astonished;
...visiting museums plenty of works of art ... Canova sculptures in Galleria Borghese, The School of Athens in Raphael Rooms, the Ancient Roman, Greek, Egyptian, Etruscan masterpieces, not to mention Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel and thousands of others ;
… discovering that, even during cold season, Rome is blessed by mild temperature and the sun is always brilliant....
… To have a break in the local shops or in a small typical trattoria for a dish of pasta ... while in Rome, do like the Romans do !
What I mean is Rome is the perfect place for a great artistic, cultural and culinary experience!
