The Neighborhood

Prati is a famous neighbourhood (rione of Rome) in the centre of the city near the Vatican (email hidden)e beautiful Via Cola di Rienzo, one of the most famous streets in Rome, is consistently ranked among the most expensive shopping streets in the country. It is an affluent residential neighborhood that has the Vatican Museums and St. Peter’s Basilica practically at its doorstep. Because of its close proximity to the Pope’s residence, it also happens to be one of the safest neighborhoods to be in. Aside from convenience, Prati is filled with great authentic Roman trattorie and great bars and pubs where one can go and listen to some live music.Whoever said that all of the good restaurants could only be found in the centro storico, was sadly mistaken. In the Prati neighborhood, there are a slew of good home cooked meals to be had at mom-and-pop like trattorie and pizzerie. A major hit among locals and tourists is Hostaria Dino e Toni.The most popular live music place in the area and in Rome for that matter, is Alexanderplatz. It's actually the most famous jazz lounge and the locale manages to draw in some pretty big internationally known names on the jazz scene. Another lively place is Fonclea.

Getting around

metro station Ottaviano only 5 min walk, and at the street many buses to go everywhere but if you like walking in few minutes you will be to S.Peter's Square, Navona Square, Campo dei Fiori etc

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • My family and I stayed in the apartment near St. Peter's Square and had a wonderful time! Sabrina was an excellent host--she always responded quickly to our inquiries, and she even let us check out later than normal because her schedule permitted us doing so and because it was more convenient for us. The apartment itself is great; the area is quiet and centrally located, and there is plenty of space in the master bathroom. The heating in the apartment was also fantastic, which is important when traveling in the winter. The apartment was cozy, the surrounding area is great (there are lots of places to eat, and there's even an indoor market nearby), and Sabrina (email hidden)! My family and I really enjoyed our stay in Rome and meeting Sabrina, and we would certainly recommend this apartment to others.

  • It was very nice flat near to Vatican. We almost don't use any transport at all, because it was very easy to get anywhere from this flat.
    Flat situated in not crowded street. It always quite. I liked it.
    Also, you can find a lot of cafe in 5 minutes walk.
    Owner was very nice and friendly. She suggested good places to visit.
    Good flat for 4 people!

  • We have to leave the day we arrived on July 20, 2012 as the place didn't meet our expectations. Our main complain was the bathroom which was so dirty, it will not show in the pictures but when I took a good look when I got there there were black molds in the corners, it is also very small. I have to pay extra 30 Euro for the AC which was set up differently, we have to put the exhaust outside the window, the kitchen is very old and very tiny. It was really a BAD experience. The place is not comfortable for travelers.

    Response from Sabrina:

    The guest has been very problematic from the beginning. What she wrote about the apartment is totally not true.
    They just didn't like anything but I don't know why as I only have positive reviews at this apartment's page as you can see.
    They told me the beds were not comfortable but the point is they didn't sleep on these beds.
    How can you say a bed is not comfortable if you haven't used them??
    They told me the beds were not real beds. That's totally not true.
    All the beds at the apartment are real beds, there are not sofa beds.
    Therefore they didn't tell me anything more but then they wrote to the site airbnb telling the bathroom was not clean.
    This was not totally true as well.
    What they thought was dirt was simply the silicon inside the shower that (email hidden), but this happen for the humidity inside the shower, it's not dirt!
    Anyway if they had told me the truth I would have told to the worker that helps me with the apartments to put a new silicon into the shower and everything would have been fixed.
    I'm totally open to suggestions from my guests and open to do everything to make them feel at home in my apartments and totally satisfied.
    I think the guest didn't manage the situation in a correct and educated way.
    My experience with this guest has been totally BAD.

  • July 10-15, 2012... We got into Rome and the hostess sent her young son to greet us and to allow us into the unit 5 hours earlier than expected. The location was fantastic for us with the Vatican 2 blocks away and the metro also 2 blocks away. Everything in the unit was adequate for use but very worn. The one air conditioner cooled the apartment nicely. While we had challenges with hot water for showering, the hostess sent a handyman to take care of the challenge. We had a good stay in Rome because we were sleeping well "at home". Thank you , Sabrina.

  • We had a nice time in this apartment. We were met by David in front of the building after calling ahead and letting him know we were running late. He was very nice and showed us the apartment before departing. The two rooms of the apartment are spacious and comfortable. I was nice to be able to cook meals as eating out can get expensive, especially for a family of 5. The A/C unit worked great to cool us off after a hot day of touring Rome. The shower was a little tricky, but glad that David gave us instructions on how to use it. The apartment had wireless internet, which is very nice to have so we could plan out the next day and to keep in contact with family and friends. Glad there was an elevator to take us up to the 4th floor, especially after a long day of walking. Great location close to the Vatican and the Metro station. We located and utilized 2 supermarkets to stock up the fridge. There are quite a few gelato shops and restaurants, along with a Burger King, a McDonalds, and an Internet Shop (we used to print out reservation confirmations) on the way to the Metro subway. As we drove to Rome, glad there was a parking garage (Mercato Trionfale) right around the corner, 20 Euros a day and pretty secure. Overall, we had an excellent stay and look forward to coming back to Rome. Hoping that Sabrina's apartment is available when we come back!.

  • We loved our stay here. Sabrina was so helpful with information when she met us at the apartment. Close to the metro and Vatican and easy enough to get to. A very cozy and quiet apartment that we enjoyed ourselves in for the weekend.
