About This Listing
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
Wir hatten eine super Zeit in Davids Appartement. Es ist sehr sauber, modern und in einer super Lage. Wir wurden von einer älteren Dame empfangen, welche uns auch hilfreiche Tipps zu umliegenden Supermärkten und Restaurants gab. Alles in allem sehr empfehlenswert!
The appartment was nice, very clean and very good situated. In the evening sometimes a little bit noisy because of the kitchen of a restaurant next to the entrance, and the window above the door could not be closed.
But we recommend this appartment and the great food at Ruberto Roberto right next door...5€ for a great lunch...
Thank you David for the nice stay and to wait for us because our arrival was later then foreseen due to a strik in Rome...
Der Aufenthalt in Davids Apartment war sehr schön! Das Zimmer ist genauso wie auf den Bilder zu sehen, alles war sehr sauber und ordentlich. In der Küche war alles vorhanden was man brauchte.
Das Apartment ist sehr ruhig in einem Hinterhof gelegen, der abends nur mit einem Schlüssel für die Haupteingangstür zugänglich ist. Die Nachbarschaft ist sehr schön mit vielen anderen Wohnhäusern und einigen kleinen Läden und Restaurants. Direkt nebenan ist eine Cafe-Bar mit sehr leckerem Cappuccino und eine Pizzeria. Die Metrostation ist direkt um die Ecke und von dort gelangt man sehr gut überall hin, z.B. zum Colloseum und Forum Romanum. Der Petersplatz und auch das Vatikan-Museum sind zu Fuß in ca. 10-12 Min. zu erreichen, was sehr praktisch ist.
Dies war unsere erste Buchung mit Airbnb und wird nicht die letzte sein. Wir können dieses Apartment für einen Aufenthalt in Rom empfehlen.
Trés bel appartement conforme à la description.Des attentions à notre arrivée tels des sachets de thé et café et deux parapluies..dont nous avons eu besoin le premier jour.Quartier calme à deux pas du vatican et des halles (trés adeptes des produits locaux frais).
Trés bon séjour
I cannot fault this apartment.
I cannot thank David enough for a great stay.
Super clean, great location, He is so accommodating.
During our stay my mother locked the keys in the apartment and it caused alot more drama than we realised as the keys were locked from the inside, we called David late friday evening and he sorted it all out. He could not have been anymore helpful or friendly. so HUGE thank you to David and his friend.
Bed very comfortable, bathroom/kitchen etc super clean. wifi fantastic. everything you need.
A very well located flat! Always cleaned and with towels and garbage bags replaced everyday!
My family and I certainly recommend stay in this flat also because of David and his team attention!
Accommodation was perfect, the hosts were very welcoming, we arrived 2 hours after eta, Lydia was there within 5 minutes. Hosts also provided secure area for bikes. Loved staying in the area very central, could walk everywhere but metro and trams are close. Shopped locally at the fresh produce market, bakery and patisserie. Cafes also friendly. Definitely would stay again and recommend to friends.

About the Host, David
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!
