We had a wonderful stay in Silvia's apartment. It is located in a quiet apartment block, is spacious, clean and comfortable and has a functional kitchen and bathroom. There is a supermarket nearby and a few restaurants. It is a 15 minute walk to Ottaviano Metro Station, which is also very close to the Vatican. We enjoyed our walks from the apartment as it is in a nice neighbourhood and accessible to the centre of Rome. It was always good to return to the apartment after a long day of sightseeing.
Silvia is a great host - she always responded promptly to my queries and was on hand to answer any questions.
This apartment is highly recommended. Thank you very much Silvia and Daniele. We hope to return soon.
Silvia was a fantastic host. She made our stay in Rome much easier with her local knowledge and advice.
The apartment was lovely and a great place to relax after a day of sight seeing.
We would definitely stay again and recommend to friends
Silvia was a great host and her brother, Daniele, welcomed us warmly. Silvia was very accommodating and was easy to get ahold of and responded quickly when my boyfriend left his phone in the apartment after check-out.
The apartment is exactly as described and being a basement apartment stayed nice and cool in the Rome Summer heat. Check-in was easy and the apartment is easy to find from the metro. The apartment is a short 10 minute walk from the Metro and 20 minutes to the Vatican.
The apartment comes with wi-fi but you have to track your usage so you don't go over the limit. Silvia offers a URL where you can track it. Just keep an eye on it and you'll be fine.
We had a great stay in Silvia's lovely apartment which is located in a quieter part of town. Apartment is a nice size with an outside terrace, comfortable bed and not located far from vatician city. Wifi at the apartment has a daily limit of 1gb per day. Thanks Silvia!
Great place! Prati is wonderfull and flat is so nice! There is everything for feeling you home :)
Thanks Silvia for hospitality and a lot of really useful information about city.
And special thanks for vine and fruits :)
Hope to come back to this wonderful place!
We have enjoyed our Rome holidays thanks to Silvia and her wonderful apartment. The apartment was more than spacious for two persons, and having a separate bedroom and living room it can easily host up to 4 guests. Apartment is fully equipped with whatever you would need during the short stay - kitchenette (rather small, but good enough to cook some breakfast and dinner), Internet connection, washing machine, iron, TV, conditioner, etc. It's also very nice staffed with the furniture, so that you don't feel that anything is missing. What we have not understood from description and pictures is that the apartment is located on the ground floor, that makes it a bit dark. However in the summer it's an advantage. From geographic perspective, the apartment is located a bit aside of the life center, comparatively close to the Vatican. But we appreciated that - living among locals, sharing supermarket and domestic restaurants is what we were aiming to. During the whole week we have used public transport only twice. All other time the see sights and the city center was available by walking - around 40 minute walking to Pantheon.
Silvia is an awesome host - she has not only prepared all instructions and sent them beforehand, but also give excellent tips to explore the Rome. Thank you Silvia!
So, to sum up - it's a wonderful place to stay in Rome if you want to feel yourself a local one and live in a cozy and really calm place with easy access to the city.
Silvia is a great friendly host, the apartment is clean and has everything we needed for our stay. We especially enjoyed the terrace outside.
Location is perfect for visitors of the Vatican area or sports events (Olympic and Tennis stadium are in a walking distance) but it is quite a walk to get to the city.
So you need to find out about the bus system, a big bus station is next door.

About the Host, Silvia
My name is Silvia, 55 years old.
I live in Rome where I work in an Hospital as Responsible of Budget & Control Unit; you can have a look at my personal website, (website hidden).
I like travelling and living in different place; I came back to Rome in 2008 from Venice Laguna where I've lived for six years. In '90s I was Bologna (north of Italy) and previously in Pavia (close to Milan), and in the central east coast (Ancona and then Pescara). Now, as I'm getting older...I will stay in Rome, my own city !
I love classical music (Baroque period, Vivaldi, Hendel) and italian "rockstyle" (Zucchero, Vasco Rossi, Ligabue).
