The Space

I am renting my beautiful small apartment in Rome’s historical centre, just a pleasant 5 minutes walk from St. Peter’s Cathedral.

Absolutely central, perfectly connected to all central buses and underground. Non-smokers only. Top floor (fourth floor without an elevator -- we provide help with the luggage) very light and sunny. On pedestrian only street, in a wonderful neighborhood.

Fantastic communal roof terrace overlooking St Peter’s Cathedral.

  • We stayed a very happy 6 days at Barbara's lovely apartment... the whole apartment was just great but most of all, we loved the rooftop for an evening glass of prosecco as the sun went down behind St Peter's dome. Wonderful.

    Barbara was also so helpful in advance, even booking us a taxi from the airport to the apartment – and she was so quick to respond to any questions we had. Once we arrived, Stefano gave us a warm welcome and showed us how to use the essentials. We were impressed by how friendly and nice the whole experience was – and would highly recommend Barbara's apartment to others.

  • This is probably the closest it can get to be welcomed like you're family. Barbara has a wonderful apartment perfectly located near the Vatican. We requested that she arrange a car from the airport to the apartment and managed to get a very reasonable price for it. Her brother in law Stefano greeted us with a big smile and took plenty of time to explain everything we needed to know about the neighbourhood. Since we arrived on sunday and almost everything was closed, he even made a reservation for us at a nearby restaurant. We were also stunned that the fridge had everything we needed to cook breakfast, including fresh fruits, eggs, juice and prosecco, mind you!.The apartment itself is very clean, and even though you can hear the street activity during daytime, at night it gets really quiet and you'll be able to sleep like a baby. The wifi works well and is fast, and the kitchen has everything you may need to cook. There is a nice grocery store nearby if you need anything. The view from the upstairs terrasse is just spectacular. Do not hesitate to rent this lovely apartment, with Barbara and Stefano, you are in good hands! Barbara makes sure you have everything you need and answers her emails and texts messages really fast. Grazie mille Barbara and Stefano, spero di tornare presto!

  • Barbara and her brother, Stefano, are fantastic hosts. We arrived to find a lovely flat, clear instructions, a helpful map to local restaurants, and a frig stocked with enough breakfast food and coffee for our entire stay. Barbara also helped with our travel arrangements to the airport, making our departure at an inconveniently early hour very easy. The flat is very pleasantly decorated and comfortable and gets plenty of natural light. Although it was quite warm outside while we were there, we were perfectly comfortable inside the flat itself. The location is also excellent, quite close to St Peter's and the Vatican. We had a really lovely time; I can't recommend a stay here highly enough.

  • L’appartamento è stato davvero perfetto! Con due passi si può vedere sia la Basilica di San Pietro che Castel Sant’Angelo. Barbara non era a casa, per questo siamo stati accolti da suo cognato (website hidden) ha fatto vedere tutto e ci ha dato anche vari consigli, come: dove mangiare, quando visitare i musei, ecc. Grazie ancora Stefano!
    La cucina conteneva tutto per una fantastica colazione. In più c’era la meravigliosa terrazza al piano sopra vedendo la Basilica di San Pietro e godendo sia l’alba che il tramonto! La luce in questi momenti è veramente bellissimo. Grazie Barbara e Stefano - ci avete reso possibile di trascorrere 3 giorni fantastici a Roma! Complimenti siete perfetti!
    We can only recommend this apartment: It’s the right address for everybody who is looking for the perfect accommodation at Rome! Simply Top!

  • It's a very cute apartment in a very nice neighborhood. 5 min walk from Basilica di San Pietro and Vatican. We walked to most of the places in Rome. For Colosseum you would need to take public transportation. The apartment is 10 min walk from metro stop. Perfect for a couple. Barbara and Stefano were very caring and helpful in everything. We really enjoyed our stay at Barbara's apartment and would love to be back there again!

  • Great location, very close to the Vatican in the middle of a cosy quiet pedestrian area. In spite of its central location, it was absolutely quiet to sleep. The highlight of the apartment is definitely the fabulous view from the terrace! The only drawback of this great view inevitably is that the apartment is located on the 4th floor and requires some stairs to reach (only beware if you have difficulties)

    With regard to the hosts; they have been very welcoming & helpful; highly recommendable!
