About this listing

Spacious apartment of 130m2 with balcony in the centre of Rome.
Included is an Italian breakfast at "Gigi's cafe" at the ground floor, and for which you recieve a voucher (closed on Sundays).
A fully fledged gym and beauty center are located at the ground floor
You can use the kitchen to make you a tea, coffee or a sandwich. For lunch or dinner there are plenty of restaurants, pizzeria's or take always just around the corner (via Faa di Bruno, or via Angelico towards Vatican).
Weather and time permitting, we can offer you a Rome-tour on our old-timer Vespa or by car, a 1969 Fiat 500.
Across from the Vatican's holy borders, designer stores make shopping the religion in Prati while neat and gridded streets contribute to its residential calm. Plenty of restaurants, bars and cafe's, from simple Italian "mamma"-style to fancy, are located around Piazza Mazzini. This tidy neighborhood effortlessly mixes business with pleasure – elegant office buildings share Prati's real estate with high-end shops and simple public squares. Prati's removal from the city's center adds another layer to its luxury as its relative distance shields its citizens from the fast-paced frenzy of central Rome.
Fiumicino (FCO) is Rome’s main airport. It is well-connected with the center during the day by an express train. The express train between Fiumicino and Stazione Termini, Rome's main train station, costs € 14.00 and the journey takes about 30 minutes. The train departs from and arrives at Termini station at track n.27 or 28, and runs from 6.30am till 11.30pm.
There are also shuttle buses between the airport and Termini main train station. After leaving the arrival terminal, turn right and walk to the very end of the street leading to the bus parking. Tickets are purchased from the bus personnel (yellow vests). The fares vary between 5€ - 7€.
Ciampino (CIA) airport operates the budget airlines. Shuttle buses to Stazione Termini and taxis are the two options to get into Rome.
The nearest Metro station stop from our place is Ottaviano/San Pietro on line A (Vatican city stop). As it is indicated on the (website hidden) map of our listing, just walk 5 minutes straight north on via Barletta, via Angelico and you will find our place on the left hand side.
Please notice that we have cats. (The cats are not in your room)

The host canceled this reservation 11 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Our flight was delayed because of the fire in terminal of Fumincino airport so we arrived the evening at 8p.m and Matteo was here to receive us.
During the stay, Matteo give us advises and help us to order a taxi for our return to the airport :) (useful when you don't speak italian :-/).
Although, he speak english, french and german very well ;).
We recommand that host and we will not hesitate to book again.
Thanks again for all.

Matteo recieved us the morning we arrived en showed us the appartement. The room was very clean en decent. The cats were very adorable, but make sure you close the door of your bedroom otherwise the climb on to the bed and make themself comfortable ;) The breakfast was very good, from 9 am the shop below the appartement is open. They have fresh croissants en other sweet pastries and the coffee is brilliant!!
Matteo was very nice and gave us many good advices about Rome. We didn't get to see him that often, but despite that he was very helpfull is you needed him.
So if you want a good place near the Vatican (10 minute walk), this is the place to be for a good price! Thanks again Matteo for your hospitality.

Our stay with Matteo was nothing short of perfect! He met us at the door and showed us to the room and even helped with my bag. We were shown our room and everything we needed. The room is large and comfortable with a comfortable bed and the bathroom is large and serviceable. The cats in the apartment were such a delight as they ran around and kept us company. (Not a good place for those very allergic to cats)
The location in the Prati neighborhood was good for us because it was quiet and not too crowded. It is about a 5 minute walk to the metro line, then you are connected to everything. You can walk to the Vatican in about 15 minutes. We were given vouchers for the cafe directly beneath us but on the days it's closed we recommend Dolce Maniera, a small bakery full of delicious treats. It's on the right side as you walk to the metro.
Matteo was a wonderful host always helpful and willing to talk. We enjoyed spending an evening with him at one of his favorite restaurants, and his interesting conversation. Would not hesitate to book again.
Great location, the metro is very close. The room was clean. Although everything went smoothly during my 4 day stay, Matteo was very helpful, he even booked a taxi for me - which I found it a bit problematic- on my last day. Oh and the cats are adorable :)
Bernadettes und Matteos Heim ist der perfekte Ausgangspunkt für ein Entdeckungsreise nach Rom. Zentral gelegen lassen sich all die Sehenswürdigkeiten ohne Mühe zu Fuß erkunden.
Nach einem herzlichen Empfang konnte uns Matteo viele wichtige Insider Tipps geben. In einer liebevoll eingerichteten Wohnung haben wir uns sehr wohl gefühlt und können Ihn und seine Wohnung uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen - jederzeit wieder.
