The space

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, equipped with every comfort, ideal for couples or businessmen who looks for an exclusive accommodation in the heart of town.

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.

Wonderful location! Everything was within walking distance. Lidia and David were very accommodating with our check in times as we were supposed to land around 6 o'clock and didn't up in getting into Paris until around midnight. Will absolutely recommend!

Clean, morden apartment located in a very good location. Only one block to Metro. Walking distance to Vantican city and Saint Angelos castle. It was a really nice walk to the night view of the Saint Peter Cathedral after dinner. The apartment also include daily cleaning services.

David's place was great to stay in. The daily cleaning servive was a nice surprise. Apartment is in a good area, right next to Vatican city and metro station so traveling around was very easy. We also could walk to the central Rome very fast. I would be happy to stay in again and would recommend to a friend!

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!
