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
Very nice apartment very close to Vatikan. It's in a cute neighbourhood and everything was clean.
Fijn appartementje op loopafstand van het Vaticaan. De ruimte ligt in een soort hofje en er is een huismeester aanwezig. Elke dag wordt er heel goed schoongemaakt (!). Uitstekend bed. Metrostation is vlakbij en er zijn vele winkels en restaurantjes in de buurt. We hebben heerlijke dagen gehad!
David est un hôte très discret cependant il est disponible si besoin ce qui est très agréable lorsque l'on vient pour un séjour romantique.
Son magnifique appartement est conforme à l'annonce : propre et classe même le soleil était au rendez-vous !
L'appartement est entièrement équipé : vaisselle, casserole cafetière, sèche cheveux... De plus la literie est vraiment confortable ce qui n'est pas négligeable après une bonne journée de marche dans les rues de Rome. David avait pris le soin de placer des cartes de restaurants et choses à faire dans les alentours.
Enfin nous étions comme promis à 5 min du musée du Vatican et proche du métro et des commerces.
Pour finir je recommande sans hésiter cet appartement !
De verhuurder wachtte ons al op , of zag ons in iedere geval al aankomen. De daaropvolgende ontvangst was hartelijk en (website hidden) ligging is hartje centrum Rome op een 10 min loopafstand van het St Pietersplein,fantastisch. De straat vh apps is een leuke gezellige straat met leuke eettentjes en barretjes. En ook de winkelstraat Cola di Rienzo ligt om de hoek. Buitengeluiden drongen niet door naar binnen. Wel hoorde je bij de buren af en toe stoel schuiven, maar ach. De schoonmaakster was ook een zeer vriendelijke dame, en het appartement was ook zeer schoon en netjes, en van alle gemakken voorzien
My boyfriend and I spent 3 nights in David's apartment and it was lovely! It really does look exactly like the pictures although I was surprised to see 3 steps in the bathroom but this was no problem for us. We didn't know much about Rome or the neighbourhood and it was initially quite scary being in the centre but the location is perfect. Cross the road and turn left and the basilica is at the bottom of the street! There is a huge door to the courtyard which is locked most of the time so we felt very safe. David was a lovely host, told us about the area and showed us how things worked but we didn't end up using the kitchen as we ate out everyday, bed was also super comfy. Would recommend staying here if you want to explore Rome, was very ideal and very comfortable. Thank you for having us!
My boyfriend and me stayed for 3 nights in Davids appartment in January. We really liked the room: everything was clean and looked like the pictures in the internet. It was a comfortable stay! Also the location was good: we could reach everything by foot. But the MRT Station is only one minute away. Practically there is a little bistro straight beside the front door where we had breakfast every morning. David even allowed us to leave our bags in the room until 16h pm because our flight was in the evening. This was really nice!! Thank you very much for thus stay! We will come back.
We loved staying at David s appartment ! We saw the pictures at airbnb and it was exactly the same when we came into the appartment ! It s a great choice for a couple ! The bed was great and there was a Bialetti to make delicious italian coffe !!! The appartment was clean and has everything we needed during our trip ! David s was always available to help us before and during our trip !! If we come back to Rome we will certainly try to stay again at David s appartment ! We recommend this place very much !! The location its great ! You can go to vatican walking , its only 5 minutes ! Around the appartment there were a lot of places to eat ! We recommend a pizzeria named L Isola della Pizza! Great place to eat ! The location was great, only 5 min walking to Vatican !! You can do a lot of things by walking !!!
David, thank you for everything ! See you next time in Rome !!!

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!
