Location of the apartments

The apartments are located at 141, VIA GREGORIO VII ("Via Gregorio Settimo"), in a lovely, small palace dating back to the 1930's. From the windows of our apartments you can see the spectacular Dome of St. Peter's. Via Gregorio VII runs alongside Vatican City. Just a short walk away (within minutes), you will find the world's smallest state.... Christianity's most sacred site.

The historical centre is about 1 km from Romahouse.

Several of the buses that stop right in front of Romahouse bring you towards Rome's most interesting sites within minutes (e.g. Piazza Navona, Spanish Steps, the Roman Forum, the Colosseum, etc.).
VIA GREGORIO VII is a beautiful, tree-lined street where you will find Romans and tourists alike. The neighbourhood boasts many conveniences: supermarkets and grocery shops, banks and drugstores, fine restaurants and fast food restaurants, and all kinds of retail stores.

Upon your arrival you will be offered a map of the area, filled with useful hints about how to get around.
A local market "at your front door", among real Romans!

Every morning a vibrant, open-air market makes Via Gregorio VII cheerful and lively. There, you will find various booths: fruits and vegetables, fresh fish and meats, breads and pastries, as well as street-vendors selling clothes and household items.

  • Cannot say enough amazing things about our stay at RomaHouse. We opted to for the shuttle service offerered by Martin, he picked us up promptly from the CIA airport and gave us a efficient and scenic drive back to Romahouse (the traffic permitted). The price was right for a trusted trip into the city. Martin was very helpful with tips and tricks for our stay in Rome and gave us a sheet with a map and recommended restaurants and walks locally. The apartment was very clean and spacious. Though on a major street the windows kept the noise levels low and for May we found the room cool despite the heat outside. The bathroom was big and clean. The bed was very comfortable. We found the location to be ideal, close to transit and the Vatican (where there is a bus tour stop). Martin shuttled us back to CIA in good time for our return flight. We would recommend Romahouse to family and friends and cannot wait until we can return. Thank you for everything Martin, you made our trip so perfect.

  • We stayed in Martin's apartment for one month. The apartment's location can't be beat! It is 400 meters from the Basilica (that picture was taken from the apartment) and there is public transportation that takes you anywhere in the city that is located literally across the street. There are several grocery stores located within a couple of blocks and there is a farmers' market located outside the apartment.
    The apartment itself was quite clean. There was plenty of kitchenware, the bed was comfortable, and the TV worked well. We had an issue with the TV and Martin came over and fixed it right away. In fact, Martin was quite helpful with everything! He provided shuttle service for when we both arrived and departed in Rome. He was very informative and provided written information with restaurants, suggested tours, and a good map.
    The challenge we found with the apartment was the size of the shower. If you have claustrophobic tendencies, you may want to be aware. Also, the apartment is located on the 5th floor. One of the trade-offs for the fabulous views is walking the five flights.
    All in all, the apartment was great and Martin was very helpful and informative - the perfect host!

  • Si Rome est une ville extraordinaire, il vaut mieux prendre un logement en olein centre.Martin n'était pas là pendant notre séjour. Donc pas d'accueil. L'appartement est correct sans plus, un peu excentré. En revanche, la belle-mère de Martin qui nous attendait (nous avions un retard de deux heures, perdus dans Rome pensant la ville plus petite) nous demandait 25e en plus pour la climatisation (5 euros par jour pour 5 jours) ! Ce qui ne se fait pas, surtout de la main à la main alors que l'équipement comprenait déjà la climatisation ! C'est très incorrect. Exténués, on attendait qu'elle téléphone à Martin, passant coup de fil après coup de fil ! Et nous avons laissé un message à Martin qui n'a pas donné signe de vie ! De plus, nous n'avons pas eu l'appartement 14 mais 15 ! Peu importe. Mais j'avais demandé deux lits séparés et j'ai dû dormir sur le canapé moins confortable...Bref, ce n'est pas ce que j'avais prévu. Une grosse déception en général.

Roma House
Hi, I am Martin! I was born in Salzburg - Austria forty-three years ago. After a rather tranquil life as a teacher for music and math at a very nice place in the Austrian mountains I married my Roman girlfriend Daniela and an exciting life in the whorled capital of Italy started. Together we are managing our Romahouse holiday apartments now for nearly 14 years. It is a great experience to get known to so many different cultures from all over the world by renting apartments. This exploration of different custom and languages at work brings you sometimes a certain holiday feeling at home, too! Thus we like to cook not only pizza and pasta at home... but also delicious food from Austria across Asia beyond America inspired by our guests. In our holiday season we like to travel: Europe, Africa, Asia - sometimes cities but mostly we want to refresh our self in intact nature because this contrast from the daily "big city environment" is sometimes a necessary cure for our body and spirit. Recreated back home in Rome again we are glad to introduce our holiday experiences into our work.
